Romanichal (Albanach gypsy), her ancestors are also French, Irish, Alban and Scandinavian.
Lost, or so it seemed, in the land of people not of kind for many years and for many duplicitous reasons, Whitehorse was late to learn she is gypsy, also known as Travelers, on her mother’s ancestral line. She does not consider the common term a slur. As an elder she is drabarni (ćovaxani) and so wears black, mostly, to indicate her status as one who sees in the dark. She is also directly descended from Caradoc ap Cunobelin of the Catuvellaun tribe at the time of the Claudian invasions. Hence her book PRITENI | THE DECIMATION OF THE CELTIC BRITONS.
Writer, psychic, mystic, trainer and master storyteller, she has been in print since 1987, works with the public teaching and sharing, and has done for over forty years. Her work includes anglo-linguistic anthropology; knowing that REALLY listening is one of humanity’s most astute gifts of relationship with earth, sea, sky ourselves and our kinship to other beasties.
Whitehorse has worked in all aspects of theatre, as a silversmith, trained with hounds and horses from a very young age. Is a healer and a cousin-animal whisperer. Adept at draíocht and is also drú-wit trained (erroneousy called, in a modern-day parlance, witchcraft). Her work in this field is rarely seen by others. She is heavily inked with ancestral stories and her own liberaion from ownership, within the reign of an alien monarchy and commonwealth. Now into her seventieth cycle around the sun, she continues to be inked by Luke Sabbath (Melbourne). She also tattoos herself, and a select few others, with sigils and stories of power, through her boutique domain called Skin Spells. She is an environmental 3D artist, building stone people into landscape protectors. She knows the so-called dead don’t go anywhere and forests communicate in many languages. She is constantly listening.
Although also a practitioner of Hapkido, Aikido and Dark Age Fighting (with broadsword and staff), Whitehorse holds the title of 3rd Dan in the martial art of Iaido. She maintains the legacy of the Australian dojo, YASEAINOSHIKAIAIDO

There is more. She would rather discuss this in person.
