Ministry Code: FIREKPR
Chiefs Joseph and Dr. Laralyn RiverWind are a dynamic, down-to-earth couple with a well-grounded enthusiasm for life. Both survivors of their own personal Trail of Tears, the RiverWinds are resilient overcomers who focus on forgiveness, reconciliation, and cultural bridge-building between all the tribes of the earth. The RiverWinds have been ordained ministers since 2007 with a calling to the nations. Their ordination comes from Indigenous Messengers International with the blessings of their spiritual elders Dr. Suquinna & Quamaniq.
The RiverWinds are singers, enjoying praise and worship: playing the guitar, Celtic harp, Native American flutes and drums, bagpipes, keyboard, and rattles. They are national award-winning musicians under their former band The Blessed Blend: Nominated for 7 NAMMY Awards and winners of the 2011 Native American Music Award (Best Rock Recording), plus the 2013 Taino Award’s Musician of the Year. They also host Council Fire with The RiverWinds on their FireKeepers International YouTube Channel.
The RiverWinds’ teachings specialize in understanding Heavenly timing (the Biblical feasts of the Lord); Native American contextuality in the church; cultural expressions of worship; love, forgiveness & reconciliation, and how to study Scripture in Hebrew and Paleo-Hebrew (the easy way). The RiverWinds always speak together in events in a tag-team fashion like Aquila & Priscilla demonstrating being echad as Husband and Wife.
