Alta: "May Her Memory Be a Blessing"
It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Alta into the realm of spirit. Since 2016, Alta had been offering psychic readings at Earth Odyssey, but she has shared her exceptional intuitive gifts with the world for four decades. She was an open and unbiased Shano Da Nai "Child of Wind".
In addition to being a gifted medium, Alta was a guiding light and source of comfort for so many. She helped people to process grief and loss, make important decisions, and celebrate life’s important milestones and moments.
She had a talent for truly seeing beyond the mundane and obvious. Whether it was seeing deep beyond the veil into the spirit world, into the cosmos beyond the stars, or simply seeing people for who they really are, Alta never wanted to be blinded to anything.
She was proud of her Nez Perce and Blackfoot indigenous heritage and created beautiful shawls and regalia through her U-Neek Rabbit label.
Family, friends, coworkers, and clients alike appreciated Alta’s sense of humor, and ability to diffuse any kind of tension with her enthusiasm and love. Countless customers over the years have commented on how Alta made them feel comfortable and ease, like family, like she’d known them for years—and that she responded with genuine excitement to the positive events coming up in their futures as well as true compassion in helping people find closure after loss.
Alta was (and is) an empowering force, a beacon of hope and light, and forever irreplaceable in our hearts.
Alta’s memorial service was conducted by an elder from her tribe on
October 23, 2022 in Alabama. A number of our staff members attended and participated in the traditional Native American ceremonies that set her spirit free. It was a healing experience and we have all felt her presence and know she is at peace.
We appreciate everyone’s compassion during this difficult time and invite you to share your favorite Alta memories or ways she has helped our inspired you by entering them into the form below. We will share these thoughts with her family on your behalf. Thank you for being a part of honoring and remembering our remarkable friend.

.5 STAR Google Review by Jordyn (Jan 2021)
I stumbled into Earth Odyssey on a rainy day and walked out having had the best reading of my life. She soothed my soul and intricately wove together the lessons of my past and current life. She guided me back to my purpose. Today, just over two years later, I had my second reading with Alta. Now, more than ever, I feel empowered to put my past to rest and welcome in the blessings and love my future has to offer. You are a guiding light, Alta.

"...We booked readings with Alta and she's very down to earth, open, and honest. She performed an animal totem and tarot reading for me and really opened my eyes and enlightened my path. She only asked me two questions, my name and birth month, and everything unfolded from there, truly astounding. I feel like she's a family member I never knew I had, and I can't wait to see her again!"
