Russell FourEagles was born in Washburn County in the north woods of Wisconsin in the middle of the 20th century. He studied healing and medicine with his Oneida grandmother for 28 years. He served in the U.S. Army from 1970-1972, walking point in the jungles of Vietnam. When he returned from war, he continued his herbal training and healing.
His energy healing practice began in 1959, but his grandmother would only let him work on animals. In 1967, he started working with people. Now Russell is building a new wellness center in Spooner, Wisc., where he hopes to continue healing the rest of his life.
Russell FourEagles has performed more than 45,000 healings in Canada, Central and South America, Europe, Indonesia, Thailand and across the United States. He also taught workshops on traditional Oneida Healing at the University of Wisconsin-Menomonie and regularly speaks as a Native American Medicine Man and Holy Man at Native American gatherings and festivals across the country.
His grandfather was captured living in the wilds of Canada and taken to the Couchiching Reserve in 1870, where he escaped and immigrated to the U.S. and settled near the Oneida Reservation, but not onto it. The medicine that Russell FourEagle’s grandmother taught him was therefore never broken and came directly down the lineage, since living off the reservation meant that none of his ancestors ever went to boarding school. His grandmother learned from her grandmother and she learned from her grandmother, back 200 generations.
