diiyin Maria Yracébûrû
Apache HolyMan (diiyin), Juan Ten Bears Yraceburu, taught Maria the genealogical lineage extending to the ancient origins of tlish diyan. From the age of six, Maria was his primary apprentice, learning all aspects of the All That Is — philosophy, healing, time tracking, cyclic ceremonies, and life procedures. After twenty years she was presented with the tlish diyan clan bundle as guardian, entering the realm of 'tsanti — Evolution's Web Dreamer. Eventually her spiritual activities became known to the world, registering comments of "fraud" and "prophet" from natives and non around the world. This was foretold by prophecy by her grandfather and the Council of Intertribal Elders in 1964, as they gathered around an ancient cottonwood trees near Havasupai.
In 1972 diiyin Yraceburu entered college. Near San Francisco, she began the Butterfly Clan Women's Circle that went on to become Courageous Crossing Rites Past Traumatic Stress Healing, recognized as one of the few authentic eco-psychology series tapping traditional wisdom. It maintains the integrity of the original group, while da'igoti Yraceburu continues the tradition of imparting tlish diyan through the evolutional SpiralDancing Life program of philosophy, spirituality, ceremony, and community service. Initially, she adopted a quiet approach to teaching, but observed with great concern the distorted teachings of her beloved earth. Motivated by a desire to preserve ancient lifestyle ways in their purest form, she writes, lectures and conducts workshops throughout the United States and Hawaii
