Absolutely not the Same
Jesus (and I am not referring to the Americanized version of Jesus either) and Tunkasila are not the same- no comparison! God said that there shall be no other gods before Him (Exodus 20:3). And God said, “I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images” (Isaiah 42:8, bold mine). To compare Jesus with Tunkasila (a demon) is to compare gold with dirt (Isaiah 2:20; Jonah 2:8): “For You LORD, are high above all the earth; You are exalted above all gods” (Psalm 97:9); “Who has formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing?”(Isaiah 44:10). “The things which the Gentiles [pagan idolaters in this context] sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that you would have fellowship with devils” (1 Corinthians 10:20). Jesus judges righteously. Tunkasila doesn’t. Jesus sets people free fom sin. Tunkasila doesn’t. Jesus has power to raise the dead. What power has Tunkasila demonstrated? [crickets…]

Below, you will see how Russell Means, Crow Dog, Black Elk, and Wavoka compare to Jesus Christ, as well as further resources…
NATIVE CHRISTIANS EXPOSING DEMONIC NATIVE RELIGION:
1. Former medicine man Bro. Kootenay, Nakota
2. Descendant of Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, Bro. Red Bear, Lakota
YouTube, Edward Sandberg,
We recommend a book called Muddy Waters: An Insider’s View of North American Native Spirituality (2012, Lighthouse Trails Publishing) by Nanci Des Gerlaise, a Metis Cree woman from Canada. She is the daughter and grand-daughter of medicine men. She grew up oppressed by evil and spirits. She was set free by Jesus Christ from a world of immorality, alcohol, anger and bitterness.

Russell Means, most famous Native activist, Admitted…
Russell Means, arguably the most famous Native American activist of the 20th century, admitted that the Native American religion was powerless to set him free from his anger problem. So he went to anger managment therapy in Arizona where his therapy was to visualize an object as his mother and hit it with a bat (Means, Russell and Marvin J. Wolf, Where White Men Fear to Tread: Los Angeles: General Publishing Group, Inc.: 1995, pgs. 524 and 530).
Crow Dog, Famous Medicine Man, admitted…
Crow Dog, a medicine man associated with the American Indian Movement, admitted that he was an alcoholic, but excused himself as being the spiritual heyoka [a spiritual man who does the opposite of what is right/proper in native tradition] (Means, Russell and Marvin J. Wolf, Where White Men Fear to Tread: Los Angeles: General Publishing Group, Inc.: 1995, pg. 212) This is what people commonly refer to as “an excuse”. It is hypocrisy to claim to work for God and yet be a drunk.
Black Elk’s Racist Vision.
Black Elk, one of the most famous Native American religious leaders of the 20th century, is recorded as receiving a vision that when he turned 37, he would use a little tree to exterminate the “enemies” with a “soldier weed”. Reportedly, he forsook the vision later. (The Sixth Grandfather: Black Elk’s Teachings Given to John G. Neihardt, edited by Raymond DeMallie: University of Nebraska Press: Lincoln and London, 1984, pgs. 135-137)
Wounded Knee and the False Christ
What helped lead to the Wounded Knee Massacre as one of the most famous sites in all of North American, Native American history? The Ghost Dance religion, led by Wovoka, a Paiute Native American who people thought to be Jesus in the flesh. Natives believed they should do the ghost dance, that the white men would be exterminated and the dead native relatives would be reunited with the living; also, buffalo would be restored. (Mooney, James: The Ghost-Dance Religion and the Sioux Outbreak of 1890, Original, Governemnt Printing Office, Washington, D.C., 1896, Bison Book Edition, 1991 University of Nebraska Press: Lincoln and London, pgs. 777-801)

Jesus Sets People Free from Sin
“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free…If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed” (John 8:32, 36). God sets people free from pre-marriage sex, pornography, homosexuality, drunkenness, marijuana, drug addiction, etc.
Bad Actions = Bad Teachers
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. You shall know them by their fruits…Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is cut down, and cast into the fire” (Matthew 7:15,16, 19).
False Christs: Warning
“Take heed that no man deceive you. for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many…Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders…” (Matthew 24:4-5, 23-24)
