Moses is a Northwest Coastal Salish Native American raised in the remote Nuu-chah-nulth village of Ohiat on the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, and then sent to many of the elders of the Si Si Wiss spiritual tradition (which originated in the San Juan Islands) to further his training. Moses has the traditional name Whis.Stem.Men.Nee (“Walking Medicine Robe”). His grandparents, Barney Guss and Ivy Guss, are from the Tulalip tribe near Marysville Washington and the relatives/ancestors of his mother lived on Orcas Island. Moses was a recipient of the 2012 Washington Governor’s Heritage Award and is a master storyteller, oral historian, traditional healer and respected spiritual leader.
