“Ta'chu'la” is a skull made out of clear obsidian with a piece of cranberry obsidian that lies in the back of the head. “Ta’chu’la” was retrieved from a construction project and dig in Mongolia, China where they were building a dam. As they were digging into the ground, they discovered “Ta’chu’la” and a number of other non-quartz skulls. This occurred during 2009.
Katrina received this skull from a good friend of Joshua’s, whose name is Lionfire, based out of Colorado. Lionfire has been interested in the crystal skulls for a long time and naturally was familiar with the work that Joshua has done over the years. Finally the two of them were able to meet near Santa Fe, New Mexico in December of 2008 as both were present to do their own type of public crystal skull work. When Joshua met Lionfire at this time, Lionfire had like 30-40 non-quartz skulls with him all coming out of China. These skulls, like “Ta’chu’la” are all stylized and are not a representation of the human bone skull. Lionfire has contacts with the people who are digging up these skulls and then tries to find the right person for their new home.
Going back to the first time we met “Ta’chu’la”, this took place during our visit to Sedona, Arizona in Decemeber of 2009. Lionfire was nearby to attending a special conference that featured 13 Grandmothers of various indigenous tribes. Again Lionfire had a number of these skulls with him and shared them at the conference plus he gifted one of these gemstone skulls to one of the grandmothers. Anyway, the person who was hosting Lionfire, was very close to the room we were renting in a private home. We were able to visit with Lionfire twice. It was during the second visit that activities began to happen between Katrina and “Ta’chu’la” (of course we didn’t know this was the skulls name at this time).
When Katrina saw “Ta’chu’la” during our first visit, this skull began to speak to her directly but she wasn’t paying attention and because she was tired, she just dismissed it. Besides, “Ta’chu’la” was sitting with thirteen other similar type of skulls that were retrieved from the same Mongolian dig. However, during our second visit, “Ta’chu’la” once again began speaking to Katrina and this time it was harder to ignore the skull.
Then, when Lionfire placed “Ta’chu’la” into Katrina's hands (Katrina had not said one word to anyone present about that “Ta’chu’la” was talking telepathically to her), Katrina realized this skull wanted to go with her.Lionfire intuitively felt that Katrina was suppose to have this skull, so an arrangement was made for “Ta’chu’la” to go back home with us as we left Sedona. Also when “Ta’chu’la” was given to Katrina, the skull immediately began to tell her “his” name and explained to Katrina that “his” purpose was to be with all our crystal skulls and ourselves as our protector (a protector of the energetic field around the “Crystal Kids”).
