My name is Brian “BB” Melendez: I’m a Northern / Southern Paiute – Western Shoshone, Community Leader; American Indian Spirituality Scholar; Practitioner of Great Basin Custom(s) and Culture(s); Creator of Mahkwuhoo (Guided Meditation); and Host of the Coffee with an Indian, Podcast.
Thank you for your willingness to learn about Lucentree. For nearly two decades, my personal journey to explore the depths of tribal spiritual self-determination—for the purposes of solving modern community problems—has produced the most remarkable fruit. Lucentree, LLC is that bounty which I hope to share with the World. My strategy is to offer a uniquely revolutionary perspective, by teaching the value of introspection through meditation, mobilizing communities in the greatest need, and helping our leaders to be the best that they can be. As a former Tribal Legislator, Law Enforcement Officer, and Federal Operations Officer for Indian Affairs; I can say from vast experience, and with confidence…that I know a few things.
Why the name lucentree?
I wanted something that represented the things that I love and strive for.
Lucentree, is a combination of words. Lucent which means to glow or to give light, and Tree, to represent the Tree of Life. The color red represents simplicity and ceremony. The color white represents truth and destiny.

I have participated in many of Brian's Mahkwuhoo (Guided) Meditations. What Brian has to share is potent, powerful, and pierces right through the BS. I look forward to anything Brian has to share through social media or in person. It's time we wake up to ancestral knowledge and what Native Tribes tried to teach us long ago before those teachings were greatly stifled. We are fortunate to have a man like Brian, to shed light again, on the truth we seek.
We all need good relatives in our lives. We all need that one person who will never give up on us, will always encourage us and show us unconditional love. Brian is that kind of guy and that good relative. From meditation, to public speaking, or trainings, I would not hesitate to hire or recommend Brian.
Where Do We Go From Here?
In this moment, as a global community, in our current state of affairs, we require a spiritual revolution to get us to where we want to be. I’m here to help out with that forward moving energy.
