Clifford volunteered to serve in the United States Army in 1974. At the end
of his training, he spent four years with the Regular Army, five and a half
years with the U.S. Army Reserves, and three and a half years with the Central

Following his time with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Dr. Alford worked

to the National Police, El Salvador's version of the FBI, and assisted in
some of their anti-terrorist activities. He returned home to the United States
in 1991 to convalesce from injuries resulting in the loss of his gall bladder
and five pieces of his small intestines.
Throughout all of this time, Dr. Alford continued his formal education as
well as being mentored for eleven years in the spiritual practices of the
Eastern Band of the Cherokee People. During his convalescence, Clifford did
independent contract work as a Loss-Control Engineer, and then entered into
the full time practice of Cherokee Medicine which involves the living and
teaching of all the Cherokee culture.
Dr. Alford holds classes bi-weekly in his home in Baton Rouge, LA, serves
as the Ceremonial Leader for the Dancing Bear Band of the Yunsai Medicine
Society, and teaches seminars throughout the United States. Clifford also
