Who is Turns to the East?

I love a mystery, esp. in politics. So I was hooked when Turns to the East through his hat into the ring to run as a Democrat for the House District 4A seat now held by state Rep. Luke Malek, R-Coeur d'Alene. It's not so much his positions. It's the name. The profile of Turns to the East in the recent Coeur d'Alene Press Voters Guide says that he legally changed his name 22 years ago. What do you think the original name of Turns to the East was?
