Mark is the founder and director of Cedar River First Nations Community, A 501c3 Native American organization that in part pursues racial reconciliation through honest education, intentional conversation, and meaningful action. ~ In December 2006 Mark organized and hosted a bill passing law that allowed the holistic community in Iowa to practice their spiritual medicine beliefs with the affirmation that no laws would be broken by doing so. Until that time Native Americans and holistic communities in Iowa were being arrested and persecuted for practicing medicine without a license. ~ Mark’s background covers both Lakota Sioux traditions as well as 25 years of theological studies. ~ Currently Mark Serves as a pastor, counselor, and community spiritual leader. Mark spearheads a program that feeds the hungry as well as restoring Veterans spiritual and mental health through a ground-breaking program. The Healing thru Feeling program was developed by Mark for soldiers that are plagued with P.T.S.D. ~ Since 2006 Mark has taken an active role in the preservation of land and wildlife and most importantly in the preservation of Native American mounds, burial sites, and ceremonial sites in Iowa, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Washington State. ~ Mark was honored by the late Howard Croweagle to take his position in the prestigious OSA Indian Advisory Council Board through the Iowa State Archaeologist Office, University of Iowa.
