David Lonebear Sanipass is a Native American Elder and storyteller from the Mi'kmaq Nation. He is a mathematician, scientist, traditional storyteller, and master flute maker. He spent the first 26 years of his life being taught by over 600 elders from around the world. His lineage and history are more than 20,000 years old.

As a scientist, he has sent balloons into space that collect data from the atmosphere. As a spiritual teacher, he has shared his teachings to thousands of people and has stood beside many of our great spiritual leaders including his holiness the Dalai Lama.

Earlier in his life, David traveled across the U.S. and Canada by foot sharing the teachings his elders and the ancients gave to him, the Star Teachings. He has been traveling and teaching the Star Teachings for over 42 years.

"My name is David Sanipass. I am Miqmaq (today known as Micmac). I have been making and playing Native American flutes for about 30 years. My Grandfather taught me how to carve flutes at the age of nine. As a child, I would sit with him for hours to watch and ask questions about the art of flute carving. It can take from 5 to 20 hours to carve a flute. I harvest all the wood and make many of the tools myself. I do not use any power machinery. I use mostly lightning struck white cedar. Once the cedar tree is struck by lightning, the wood crystallizes. It is this result that gives the finished flute a unique sound and tone. I also make a "sweetgrass" flute. This is traditionally a Grandmother's or woman's flute. While this flute is played, the player as well as the listener is soothed by the light fragrance of "sweetgrass" with each note."

David has a flute CD (and originally cassette) Called "Voices of the Mountains" from 1999. He recently began recording his second album.

David learned to paint in his recovery from a brain aneurysm, and was trained in photography by his father who had images in National Geographic.

In addition David was taught by his elders to translate the ancient copper scrolls which he is translating into teachings for the communities as well as ancient technologies which he is building for community.

David has also traveled and spoke on stage as a motivational speaker, and spoke to upwards of 62,000 people at one time in Charlotte, North Carolina and almost had the record for the longest standing ovation for his motivational speaks. His words have inspired many across the globe.
Since his last private meeting with the Dalai Lama, David has been sharing the message, "One Voice, One People." This message was first brought forward in a play at the Actor's Studio in Newburyport, Massachusetts to share the prophecy stories that David holds and how those tied in with the Eastern Spiritual Leader.

David spoke at 7 Speaks in 2012 in Portland, Maine to share the Star Teachings for the first time publicly with a non-native audience. Since those teachings were shared, the local community members were so inspired, they formed the Star Teachings Society, a non-profit organization to help bring this message to a global audience, with the vision being 7 million people looking in one direction.
David continues to speak and to share with audiences around the US and Canada. He speaks to those as young as kindergarten, to high school students. He speaks to colleges, spiritual groups, and communities who invite him to teach. David will be speaking at the Parliament for World Religions in November 2018 in Toronto, Canada.

David asks nothing for his teachings. Thank you for supporting his art, technologies, and teachings.
Goals
$209 of $1,400 per month
David's Office, Studio, Jewelry Bench, Workshop, and Lab are all in one place. He would need $1400 to cover these costs. When his rent is covered, he will be able to focus on community projects including Resonators.
