a site for mixedblood Native Americans
and people interested in the Red Road
Mixedblood is dedicated to those who are descended in part from the indigenous people of North America.
The focus is Native American spirituality and lifeways geared to familiarize mixedblood and other
interested people with the Red Road. As such, lectures and workshops on the Medicine Wheel, Medicine
Shields, drums, spirituality and more are presented. These are offered to everybody, regardless of heritage.
These are no-nonsense teachings offered by Rick McBride, a mixedblood Ani’yunwi’ya (Tsalagi, or
Cherokee) with over 30 years of active involvement in these ways.

This website is currently undergoing major restructuring for at least a hundred reasons,
the primary one being (aarrggghhh) software (aarrggghhh.)
I decided to just let it happens as it happens. Website construction and maintenance is an
ongoing process anyway, so why get all stressed about it.
For a while, most of the links on the schedule page will take you straight to the Native
American Teachings Meet Up where you’ll find a brief description. Some will take you
to a breakout page on this site where you’ll find the details. Thank you for your
