Guy claims to be the “Shadow” Cherokee medicine man
Aho is the Creek, Cusabo, Apalachete, Conibo, Kaushibo and Shipibo word for sweet potato, but this guy probably didn’t mean to end his charming email with Sweet Potato.

|To Richard Thornton:
You’re so full of shit. Keep telling your lies. We all see right through them. Throwing out your status as if you’re someone just to cater to your own weak ego. You’re an architect and probably were hired because you were the cheapest… you’re a joke to all natives… claiming to be Creek, you’re a racist, you do not carry any aspects of a true native soul. You try to threaten people on here like you’re going to do something?!?!
I bless you with the shadow of The medicine man, as we journey into your dreamtime and wake you right up; your lies will haunt you as the truth will permeate your dreamtime and you will not be able to have a restful sleep until your correct your lies or you finally reach your death bed a nervous, sleepless, wreck. Aho!
Fact checking the Flat Shadow Cherokee Medicine Man
I didn’t think that aho was a Cherokee word. It is not listed in their official dictionary. Seems to me that someone at a powwow said it was a Lakota word, so I sent an email to a Lakota friend to confirm that “Proud Native” was actually ending his pleasant message with a Lakota word, not a Cherokee word. This is what she said. (You will roll in the floor laughing at the end of her letter.)
“Richard, I asked around and it is not Lakota. When I began researching the word I found out in Wikipedia that it first popped up at pow-wows in the 1930s. People told me it was Lakota but I am Lakota and my husband is Cherokee, We never use it here on the rez here so I started to ask and that is what I was told. I do hear the word from urban Indians, Newagers and wannabe’s so it could be just one of those words. So far no-one wants to claim it. This is funny. Aho means “idiot” in Japanese. This wannabe medicine man is obviously an idiot.”
Should I tell this wannabe conjurer that if you declare a curse on somebody, it comes back on the cursor. Nah-h-h . . . he wouldn’t pay any attention to what I said.
