Rev. Tim “Dancing Red Hawk” McIntosh - Gigage Tawodi Galisgidahu

State Clan Chief of Wisconsin and acting State Clan Chief of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Minnesota

I am an Ordained Pastor and a nationally recognized Spiritual Leader and Teacher of Cherokee Medicine. My grandfather was raised as part of the Bird Clan on the Eastern Cherokee reservation and was taken from his mother at a young age and given to an adoptive white family.

I am also Director of Elawei Ama Spiritual Resources and a Spiritual Leader of the Earth Lodge Foundation in Wisconsin. As a Chaplain and spiritual caregiver to those who are dying for over 12 years in Hospice ministry, I have walked with over 5,000 men, women and children as they have journeyed through their last days on Mother Earth, and worked with thousands of family members through the grief process. With Clinical Specialties in working with Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and Geriatric patients, I am a nationally Certified Dementia Educator and Caregiver. I have designed and led my own unique grief support groups and have developed a special program utilized by the city of Chicago to assist the families of Victims of Violent Crime. I currently serve as the Director of Resident Services at a senior housing campus in Pewaukee , Wisconsin and as pastor of the Lutheran Church of the Great Spirit, an urban Native American congregation in Milwaukee , Wisconsin.

As a Pastoral Care Specialist, Hospice Caregiver, Cherokee Spiritual Leader, Story-teller, Healer and Consultant, I combine my Cherokee heritage, years of ongoing study with Native American Medicine Elders, my experience as a parish pastor and as a hospice chaplain to offer a unique perspective on living, dying, and existing in this, our Circle of Life.
