Derrick was born in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada. Derrick Whiteskycloud was drawn to the traditions of his Métis/ Miqmag /Ojibway ancestry when he was thirteen years old. In the years between his roots in Manitoba and his current home in Surrey, British Columbia, he has and still does travel extensively across the western provinces developing and sharing his gifts as a Spiritual Counselor, Psychic/Medium, Paranormal Investigator, teacher, Metis Artisan, poet and entertainer. Derrick's approach to counseling, Mediumship, and spiritual healing incorporates techniques from both traditional practices and alternative methodologies. In practice, his work draws from the Great Spirit, his spirit guides, and other elements of sound and song, drumming, and sacred ceremonies. Derrick's healing gift also extends into the realm of the expressive arts. He is a prolific artist and writer. His self-published book, “Spiritual Journeys with Whiteskycloud” written in 2002, spiritual wisdom and poetry, is a collection of channeled writings, stories, poetry, and illustrations. He hosts “Between 2 Worlds Radio” on the UPRN United Paranormal Radio Network on Thursday Nights 6-8pm Pacific / 8 - 10pm Central / 10 - 12 midnight Eastern, a call-in radio show 504- 273-7379 on an Internet Radio Network where philosophy, ghost stories, paranormal phenomena, and the spirit world are topics for thought-provoking discussion. However, whether the medium is Internet Radio, spoken or written word, art, music or a derivative of traditional and New Age methods, Derrick Whiteskycloud continues to evolve his healing practice in ways that consider the physical, spiritual, and emotional well-being of the individual. Regardless of the medium, the definitive and underlying common denominator in all of his work is his commitment and passion for helping people. More and more lately Derrick has been using his paranormal skills in helping clients to clear up residual energies in their properties and bring closure. He has been honing these paranormal skills for the past 30 plus years and finds as years go by it has been easier to connect with residual energies from the past. Derrick always looks forward to helping people heal & find peace. Also he is doing terrestrial radio called METIS MATTERS RADIO on the CFRO 100.5FM Radio Network in Vancouver BC Canada.
