1. Aztec Prophecies ~
Prophecies can be misunderstood, misinterpreted, and misused, and
they tend to be self-fulfilling. The Spanish conquest of the Aztec
empire is a perfect example of this problem. Toltec legends tell of
Quetzelcoatl, a white-skinned, bearded priest-king who came from the
East to establish an enlightened kingdom among the Indians.
Eventually he departed by boat to the West. Quetzelcoatl promised to
return, and as the appointed day of his second coming approached,
heavenly omens indicated that the Aztec culture was about to come to
an abrupt and violent end.
Nezhaulcoyotl, a king of Texcoco whose reign bridged the 15th and
16th centuries, also was a great astrologer. He had an observatory
built on the roof of his palace, and invited other astrologers in
his kingdom to come to his court. There he disputed with them and
taught his wisdom. When Moctezuma II was elected king of Mexico,
Nezhaulcoyotl praised the nation for having chosen a ruler "whose
deep knowledge of heavenly things insured to his subjects his
comprehension of those of an earthly nature." (1)
Nezhaulcoyotl gave Moctezuma II detailed warnings of a new
astrological age that was beginning in the Aztec calendar. One of
the omens was a famine which developed in 1507. Then an earthquake
occurred after the "Lighting of the New Age" ceremony inaugurated by
Moctezuma II. These were sure signs of impending disaster. Each year
thereafter until Hernando Cortes invaded Mexico in 1518, a new omen
appeared. A comet with three heads and sparks shooting from its tail
was seen flying eastward. In another year, another comet, described
as "a pyramidal light, which scattered sparks on all sides, rose at
midnight from the eastern horizon till the apex reached the zenith,
and faded at dawn." This phenomenon appeared for 40 nights, and was
interpreted to presage "wars, famine, pestilence, and mortality
among the lords."
In 1508, Moctezuma II visited Tlillancalmecatl ("Place of Heavenly
Learning"), where he was given a rare bird. In its shiny crest, he
saw the stars in reflection and "fire sticks" (guns). The image
changed to show the advance of warriors riding on horses which, since
he had never seen them before, he described as deer.
Also in 1508, Moctezuma’s sister Paranazin collapsed into a
cataleptic trance that was mistaken for death. She recovered while
the funeral procession was taking her to the royal crypt. She said
that during her trance she received a vision of great ships from a
distant land arriving with men bearing arms, carrying banners, and
wearing "metal casque"” (helmets). The foreigners were to become
masters of the Aztecs.
For several days in 1519, a comet hung over the capital city of
Tenochtitlan. It was described as "a rip in the sky which bleeds
celestial influences dropwise onto the Aztec world." After that, a
thunderbolt struck and burned down the temple of the deity
Huitilopchitli. The last omen came one night, again to
A woman’s voice was heard "coming from everywhere and nowhere...
crying ’My children, my children, are lost!’"
From these and other signs, the Aztecs understood their doom as
originating with celestial powers. Was it then mere coincidence, or
did the hands of the Fates steer Cortes’ ships to land on April 22,
1519, the very day that the Aztec calendar calculated for Quetzelcoatl’s return at the end of the 13th Heaven and the
beginning of the 9 Hells? It was as though the directing forces of
the world had staged the drama to be acted out by historical
characters. Anticipating the momentous event of Quetzelcoatl’s
return, Moctezuma II had posted watchers on the coast to draw images
of the aliens and deliver them to him. The emperor was amazed that
the light-skinned, bearded figures matched the traditional
descriptions of Quetzelcoatl. This case of mistaken identity caused
the Aztecs to put up little resistance to the Spaniards, who soon
conquered the empire.
To prevent mutiny among his troops, Cortes burned the ships after
they landed. The cavalry-mounted Spanish forces then quickly
defeated several local tribes who resisted their invasion. When
their chiefs sued for peace, Cortes gave them his helmet and
commanded them to take it to the emperor and return it filled with
gold. The helmet itself was an object of wonder to the Aztecs: it
was almost identical to that worn by the great deity
Huitzilopochtli. Marveling at the similarity, the emperor returned
the helmet, filled with gold and accompanied by a warning to come no
closer. But the Spaniard’s greed for gold and dominion drew them
inexorably toward Tenochtitlan.
Though nearly overwhelmed with superstitious fear of the mythic
Quetzelcoatl, Moctezuma II is said to have greeted Cortes (image
right) at the
city gates with the words:
"O Lord, with what trouble have you journeyed to reach us, have
arrived in this land, your own country of Mexico, to sit on your
throne, which I have been guarding for you this while; I have been
watching for you, for my ancestors told that you would return.
Welcome to this land. Rest a while; rest in your palace."
Although he was outnumbered militarily by more than 1000 to 1 (Moctezuma’s
palace guard alone was larger than Cortes’ expedition), Cortes
boldly accepted the offer. In the course of ensuing events, the
Spaniards seized Moctezuma II and displayed the captive king to his
subjects. Reacting in anger, the people stoned and fatally wounded
him. The Aztec empire fell soon afterwards.
As he lay dying, Moctezuma II had a wondrous vision. He told it to
Tula, his favorite daughter. Later, she told it to the Tezcucan
noble Iztlilzochitl, who recorded it:
"To the world I have said farewell. I see its vanities go away from
me one by one.. Last in the train and most loved, most glittering is
power, and in its hands I see my heart. A shadow creeps over me,
darkening all without, but brightening all within, and in the
brightness, lo, I see my people and their future!
"The long, long cycles, two, four, eight, pass away, and I see the
tribes newly risen, like the trodden grass, and in their midst a
Priesthood and a Cross. An age of battle more, and lo! There remains
the Cross, but not the priests; in their stead is Freedom and God.
"I know the children of the Aztecs, crushed now, will live, and more
after ages of wrong suffered by them, they will rise up, and take
their place --- a place of splendor --- amongst the deathless
nations of the earth. What I was given to see was revelation.
Cherish these words, O Tula; repeat them often, make them a cry of
the people, a sacred tradition; let them go down with the
generations, one of which will, at last, understand the meaning of
the words FREEDOM And GOD, now dark to my understanding; and then,
not till then, will be the new birth and new career."
2. Inca Prophecy ~
In the 14th century, almost 200 years before
Pizzaro arrived to
conquer the Incas, a young prince had a dream in which a spirit
appeared and identified itself as Viracocha Inca, son of the sun and
brother of the first king of the Inca dynasty. The spirit said that
a northern tribe, the Chancas, was preparing a revolution against
the monarchy, and serious consequences would follow.. The Chancas
did rebel, and the prince subdued them. But rebellion was common,
and the Inca priests concluded that a much greater danger was
implied in the warning. The priests interpreted another meaning: One
day, bearded foreigners who were "masters of the lightning" would
arrive from the sea to herald the fall of the empire.
The prince became the eighth Inca king, and the people gave him the
name Viracocha. He commissioned the construction of a temple with
twelve winding halls leading upward to a statue of a tall, bearded
man dressed in a tunic. He held a chained, ferocious animal that had
the claws of a leopard. King Viracocha carved the statue with his
own hands in order to create an exact image of the spirit in his
Several omens occurred as the years passed. One day in the sky over
the capitol city of Cusco, a condor (the sacred messenger of the
sun) was attacked by a swarm of falcons. The wounded condor fell
into the city square and was given medical aid by the priests, but
it died anyway. The Inca sages were greatly disturbed because they
saw it as an omen of bad times to come.
In an audience before Huayna Capac, the 11th Inca king, a soothsayer
interpreted an awesome sign that had appeared in the sky: three
halos (red, green and brown) encircling the moon. The sage said:
"The Moon, your Mother, tells you that Pachacamac, the Creator and
giver of Life, threatens your Family, your Realm, and subjects. Your
sons will wage a cruel War, those of royal Blood will die, and the
Empire will disappear."
Since there were only twelve halls in the Temple of Viracocha, and
Huayna Capac was the 11th king, he correctly feared that the kingdom
would end with its next ruler. Huayna Capac also worried about a
party of light-skinned, bearded foreigners who had come ashore to
the north, wielding strange weapons that erupted with fire, as
spoken of in earlier prophecies.
On his deathbed, Huayna Capac addressed his priests and officials
"Our father the sun has revealed to me that after a reign of twelve
Incas, his own children, there will appear in our country an unknown
race of men who will subdue our empire. They doubtless belong to the
people whose messengers have appeared on our shores. Be sure of it,
these foreigners will reach this country and fulfill the prophecy."
The foreign messengers were Vasco Nuñez de Balboa and company, who
arrived at Tumbes in 1511. The Spaniards returned in 1532, well
armed for conquest under the command of Francisco Pizzaro. Within a
few years after the death of Huayna Capac from smallpox, his two
sons went to war against each other. Atahualpa won and assumed the
throne as the 12th Inca, just in time to lose the empire to Pizzaro
on November 16, 1532.
The Q’ero (Long-haired ones), the last of the Incas, recently
revealed their prophecies of the End of Time to Alberto Villoldo,
who has published them. The Q’ero are awaiting the next Pachacuti
(He Who Transforms the Earth), and expect it to be the end of the
world as we know it. The signs of upheaval have begun, and will last
four years. A new humanity will emerge from the chaos. The
prophecies announce the beginning of a new "millenium of gold", and
speak of "a rip in the fabric of time", through which will come a
luminous being. The signs of the times include: the drying-up of
high mountain cochas (lagoons), the near-extinction of the condor,
and great solar heat. Afterwards, we shall emerge into the fifth
3. Mayan Prophecy ~
Anthropologist Christian Ratsch translated the following sad
prophecy of the end of the world according to the religious
tradition of the peaceful Lacandone Maya of southern Mexico:
"The End of the World will come, so it is said, so it was told. Our
end will come when there are no more trees. Then, when all are cut
down, when people are everywhere, when there is no more forest. So
it is said, so it was told by the ancient habo-people. They said
"Kaxon bake xen, well, if it is true, if the forest is overcrowded
by people, if there are settlements all over, built up by the kah-people,
which are settling close together, when all the trees are cut down,
when there are no more mahogany trees, when all trees are destroyed,
when only the hills remain, then the end of the world will come. Not
now, but very soon. The end will reach us. This is said. Our end
will come. Nothing will be left of us.
"It is said, but who really knows, if it will be a storm or if it
will be the sun, which will burn us, which will destroy us. Fast,
very fast the end will reach us. It is said, it will only last as
long as dawn lasts, as long as the sun needs to reach the treetops.
Fast it will be. And nothing will be left of us. One hour and we are
"Perhaps a great coldness will come or something else.
True Lord, will get our blood. He will gather all of us there in
Yaxchilan (at the center of the universe)... The gods will bring us
to Yaxchilan. All the people with good blood will be gathered. When
they arrive there, their necks will be cut. So it is said.
"Then when the world’s end is coming nothing will remain. Everything
will find its end. There will be no thorns and spines, no flies, no
bloodsucking bugs --- nothing. But then the souls will come, the
souls of the ancients, the souls of the deceased. They will inhabit
the earth. They will stay together with the gods."
Another eschatological Mayan vision proclaims:
"Eat, eat, so long as there is bread; Drink, drink, so long as there
is water; A day will come, when dust will darken the sky, when a
stench of pestilence will cause the land to wither, when a cloud
will rise, when a mountain will be raised, when a strong man will
seize the city, when all things will fall into ruin, when the tender
leaf will be destroyed, when eyes will close in death."
4. The Eagle Bowl Calendar ~
Aztec calendar is properly called the Eagle Bowl. It represents the solar deity
Tonatiuh. The amazingly accurate
calendar has been in use in various forms for more than 2,000 years.
A Zapotec prophecy, based on the Eagle Bowl, states:
"After Thirteen Heavens of Decreasing Choice, and Nine Hells of
Increasing Doom, the Tree of Life shall blossom with a fruit never
before known in the creation, and that fruit shall be the New Spirit
The 13 Heavens and 9 Hells were each 52 years long (1,144 years
total). Each of the 9 Hells were to be worse than the last. On the
final day of the last Hell (August 17, 1987), Tezcatlipoca, god of
death, would remove his mask of jade to reveal himself as Quetzelcoatl, god of peace.
In the mythology of the Aztec, the first age of mankind ended with
the animals devouring humans. The second age was finished by wind,
the third by fire, and the fourth by water. The present fifth epoch
is called Nahui-Olin (Sun of Earthquake), which began in 3113 BC and
will end on December 24, 2011. It will be the last destruction of
human existence on Earth. The date coincides closely with that
determined by the brothers McKenna in The Invisible Landscape as
“the end of history” indicated by their computer analysis of the
ancient Chinese oracle-calendar, the I Ching.
The Mayan calendar is divided into Seven Ages of Man. The fourth
epoch ended in August 1987. The Mayan calendar comes to an end on
Sunday, December 23, 2012. Only a few people will survive the
catastrophe that ensues. In the fifth age, humanity will realize its
spiritual destiny. In the sixth age, we will realize God within
ourselves, and in the seventh age we will become so spiritual that
we will be telepathic.
5. Quetzelcoatl ~
Hundreds of North and South American Indian and South Pacific
legends tell of a white-skinned, bearded lord who traveled among the
many tribes to bring peace about 2,000 years ago. This spiritual
hero was best known as Quetzelcoatl. Some of his many other names
Wakea (Cheyenne, Hawaiian and
the Mighty Mexico,
E-See-Co-Wah (Lord of Wind and Water),
the Dawn God (Puan,
Taiowa, Ahunt Azoma,
Wakona (Algonquin), etc..(2)
When he left the Toltecs and sailed away to the East,
promised to return to them after several cycles of their calendar.
He made a prophecy about the destiny of the sacred city Tula (now
identified with Teotihuacan in Mexico) through two millennia. The
Toltecs would be conquered first by the Sacrificers of Men (the
Aztecs), then by white-skinned, bearded men of the East carrying
fatal “thunder-rods” --- the Spaniards and their guns:
there is another invasion. In ships many bearded men are
coming from across the Sunrise Ocean... I see these men taking the
Broad Land... They do not respect our trees of cedar. They are but
hungry, unenlightened children...
"Would that I could speak to these bearded farmers. I have tried.
They do not hear me. They go on their way like spoiled children...
"Stand with me in the Year of Te-Tac-patl. Look across the Sunrise
Ocean. Three ships come like great birds flying. They land. Out come
men in metal garments, carrying rods which speak with thunder and
kill at a distance. These men are bearded and pale of feature.
"They come ashore and I see them kneeling. Above them I see a Great
Cross standing. That is well. If these men are true to the symbol
they carry, you need have no fear of them, for no one who is true to
that symbol will ever carry it into battle.
"Therefore hold aloft your Great Cross (T), and go forth to meet
them. They cannot fail to know that symbol, and would not fire their
rods upon it, nor upon those who stand in its shadow. Well they know
that what is done to my people is done also to me.
"When the years have come to their full binding, the metal-tipped
boots of the strangers will be heard in all the bloody temples. Then
throughout the Broad Land has begun the Third Cycle. As yet, I
cannot see beyond it.
"Once I had great hope for these people, for I saw them kneel and
kiss the sweet earth, and I saw the shadow of the Great Cross which
they carried with them. Now I must warn you against them.
"Carry your great books into the jungles. Place your histories
deeply in caverns where none of these men can find them. Nor do you
bring them back to the sunlight until the War-Cycle is over. For
these bearded strangers are the children of War. They speak my
precepts, but their ears do not listen. They have but one love and
that is for weapons. Ever more horrible are these weapons, until
they reach for the one which is ultimate. Should they use that,
there will be no forgiveness in that vale where there is no turning.
Using such a weapon to make man over, is reaching into the heavens
for the Godhead. These things are not for man’s decision, nor should
man presume to think for all things, and thus mock the Almighty. Woe
to those who do not listen! There are lamps beyond that which you
are burning; roads beyond this which you are treading; worlds beyond
the one you are seeing. Be humble before the might of the Great Hand
which guides the stars within their places. There are many lodges
within my Father’s Kingdom for it is more vast than time, and more
"Keep hidden your books, my children, all during the
Warring Strangers. The day will come when they will be precious.
"For five full Cycles of the Dawn Star, the rule of the Warring
Strangers will go on to greater and greater destruction. Hearken
well to all I have taught you. Do not return to the Sacrificers.
Their path leads to the last Destruction. Know that the end will
come in five full cycles, for five, the difference between the
Earth’s number and that of the Gleaming Dawn Star, is the number of
these children of War. As a sign to you that the end is nearing, my
Father’s Temple will be uncovered. Remember this in the days which
Tula-Teotihuacan was found and excavated by archaeologists only in
recent years. In another prophecy, Kate-Zahl described the city as
it will be rebuilt in the future:
"Then the heavens spoke in a crash of thunder, and the lightning
flashed above the valley. The Man turned to look again on Tula, his
most beloved city. Behold! It was naught but a mass of rubble.
"He wept there with great sorrow. He clung to the rocks, staring
back toward Tula. Then the heavens roared again and shook the
mountain. A flash of light struck beside Him and cracked the
darkness. Behold! The old heaven and earth were vanished, and He
looked into another cycle.
"The heavens parted and a rising sun shone down on another Tula.
Plainly he could see the valley, but the city was one He knew not.
Magnificent was this Golden Tula!
"The Man was lifted beyond the earth. No longer He saw the Age of
Destruction. Gone was the horrible Age of Warfare. He was looking
beyond the Age of Carnage!
"Walk with me through this Age of the Future. Tula shines in all its
glory, but the metals are of types we know not. Loving hands have
rebuilt the parkways, have paved the streets, have rebuilt the
temples. There is a great building where books are kept for the
scholars, and many are those who come to read them. Tula is a great
Center of Culture.
"Come with me to the New Colula. Shining again is My Father’s
Temple! Once more the city is filled with fountains and the parkways
are wire-netted for the birds of rare plumage, and those who sing to
enchant the listener. Cross through the parkway to My Father’s
Temple. You will see again the inscriptions which today your eyes
are seeing, but now all people can read them.
"Come to the city of the future. Here are the buildings unlike those
we build, yet they have a breathless beauty. Here people dress in
materials we know not, travel in manners beyond our knowledge, but
more important than all these differences are the faces of the
people. Gone is the shadow of fear and suffering, for man no longer
sacrifices, and he has outgrown the wars of his childhood. Now he
walks in full stature towards his destiny --- into the Golden Age of
"Carry this vision on through the Ages, and remember Kate-Zahl, the
In Book X of his History, the 16th century chronicler Fray
Bernardino de Sahagun described the departure of the "wise men" who
had been the attendant priests of Kate-Zahl at Teotihuacan:
"The wise men remained not long; soon they went. Once again, they
embarked and carried off the writing, the books, the paintings; they
carried away all the crafts, the castings of metals. And when they
departed, they summoned all those they left behind. They said to
them: "Our lord, the protector of all, the wind, the night, saith
you shall remain. We go leaving you here. Our lord goeth bequesting
you this land; it is your merit, your lot. Our lord, the master of
all, goeth still farther, and we go with him. Whither the lord, the
night, the wind, our lord, the master of all, goeth, we go
accompanying him. He goeth, he goeth back, but he will come, he will
come to do his duty, he will come to acknowledge you. When the world
is become oppressed, when it is the end of the world, at the time of
its ending, he will come to bring it to an end. But you shall dwell
here; you shall stand guard here..."
A surviving Toltec legend includes this prophecy:
"Ce Acatl [Quetzelcoatl] spent a night with a Huiteca family. They
fed him and played music for him. The father, a strong Indian
farmer, showed Ce Acatl a stone carving he had and told him, "This
carving tells of the coming of the Lord of the Dawn. it says he will
come in the Year One Reed. It says he will build a city and change
"The farmer had no idea who he was talking to. He continued. "Now,"
he said, "many people say he will not come. Many people say it is a
long time from now that he will come. Some people say he will come
from the East and he will bring a great book of words and numbers.
Other people say he will come from a tree and count the Last twenty
Days of the Creation. What do you say about this?"
"Ce Acatl grew gray with the depth of his answer. "If I told you of
my thought, of what I know of the Spirit of the Lord of the Dawn, if
I told you of what I think will happen, you would laugh and think me
crazy. So I say only this: One day a race shall walk upon this
earth, a race of men whose spirits are so great, whose wisdom is so
complete, whose powers to commune with the Creator are so keen they
will dwarf the doings of the Lord of the Dawn of our day. When that
day comes the Creator will send forth a manifestation that will in
turn amaze the wisest men of that unbelievable age. And even then
the greatest brains on earth will wonder --- has he come? Will he
come? Or has he been here?"
When he departed, Ce Acatl promised to close the Thirteenth Heaven
and open the First of the Nine Hells, and he vowed to destroy the
man-made gods. He set the year and date of his birth (260 years
later on Day One Reed in year One Reed) and said, "I shall return. I
shall come from the east like the Morning Star, and I will fulfill
that part of the prophecy.”
It is said that when Ce Acatl passed away at the age of 52, "A hush
fell over the entire planet, and burning bright in the heavens
directly above the great tree, the Tree of Life [El Tule], glowed
the planet Venus, the Morning Star.”"
Quetzelcoatl also foretold the following:
"In time, white men will come out of the eastern sea in great canoes
with white wings like a big bird. The white men will be like a bird
with two different kinds of feet. One foot will be that of a dove
[Christianity], the other of an eagle [predator]. A few hundred
years after the arrival of the first white men, other white men
would arrive with both feet as a dove."
Quetzelcoatl himself or his spirit would come in the form of a white
dove at that time.
A Zapotec prophecy, transmitted by Joseph Jochmans, also announced
the recent return of Quetzelcoatl:
"One of the incarnations of Quetzelcoatl is buried beneath the roots
of the sacred El Tule Tree near Oaxaca, and as the first rays of the
dawning sun of the new heaven cycle [August 17, 1987] sink into the
depths of the Earth, billions of tiny spirits will burst from the
heart of Quetzelcoatl. They will slowly rise through the trunk,
through the limbs and branches, appearing as sparkles of light,
finally erupting from limbs and branches, to circle the globe, each
spirit to implant itself within the heart of a human being, and
plant a crystal of peace and love..."
6. Hopi Prophecy ~
In the course of their communion with the Great Spirit, native
Americans have received many visions of the destiny of North
American civilization. The largest number of such prophesies have
been preserved by the Hopi in Arizona. Their community of Oraibi is
the oldest continually inhabited settlement (about 1,000 years) in
North America. The name Hopi is derived from Hopitu Shinumu
("Peaceful [or: Righteous] People").
The Hopi believe that the human race has evolved through three world
stages of life since its origin. Each of these worlds was destroyed
in turn, and human life was purified and nearly ended by the Great
Spirit because of man’s corruption and greed. (3)
In the Hopi cosmology, the universe at first was only infinite
blackness in the mind of Taiowa, the Creator. Taiowa made
the first man, and commanded him to order the cosmos. On the first
day, Sotuknang divided the universe into nine worlds. One world was
reserved for Taiowa, one was for Man, and seven were for future
worlds. The present is the Fourth World.
Topkela was the first and most beautiful of the worlds. There,
humanity thrived in harmony with Nature in the company of animals.
But the Snake spoke and seduced Man away from Taiowa the Creator.
Seeing this, Taiowa ordered Satuknang to destroy Tokpela and its
inhabitants, except for a few "children of pure heart" whom he
sheltered in the center of the Earth when he rained fire upon the
planet and burned the sky. The people stayed underground while
volcanoes erupted. Afterwards, the people emerged and moved into the
second world, Topka, which was less beautiful than the first. There,
men lived in huts, learned crafts, and drew apart from Nature.
Eventually they became greedy, materialistic, and insatiable as
before. Taiowa again ordered Sotuknang to destroy the humans and the
world they had ruined. The faithful few again hid underground with
the Ant People. The earth rolled over twice, and everything on it
was destroyed by ice, which covered everything. After the ice had
melted enough to make the world inhabitable, the survivors emerged
into the third world, Kuskurza. There, man built cities and tall
buildings, and departed further still from the Creator’s nature,
becoming very evil. Kuskurza in turn was destroyed by flood. (4-6)
When the Hopi’s ancestors emerged from the underworld, they met the
demigod Maasaw, who owns this world. Maasaw had been caretaker of
the Third World, but because of his pride, he had been demoted to
become the god of death. When Kuskurza was destroyed, Taiowa gave
Maasaw another chance and appointed him to be the guardian of this
world. The people asked Maasaw for permission to live in the new
land of Turtle Island (North America). Maasaw said:
"It is up to you, whether you are willing to live my poor, humble
and simple life. It is hard, but if you are willing to live
according to my teachings and instructions and will never lose faith
in the life I shall give you, you may come and live with me. Now you
look at me. I am a poor man. I have almost nothing: I have only my
planting stick, my seed corn, and a jug of water. I live a simple
life. If you wish to live with me, you must sacrifice many things.
If you want me for your leader, your chief, you must prove that you
can live this way of life.
"Now look around. See this land. It is poor land. There is not much
water and very few trees. But this is the richest land. There is
great wealth under. But hear this warning --- you are not to disturb
this land and take this wealth out as long as there is still war
going on. If you do, these things will be used to destroy life and
this will not be your salvation...
"Never disturb this land. Do not cede your land to anyone; don’t
ever give it away. Above all, it is to provide your nourishment.
Hold this land dear like a mother as long as you live. If you sell
it you will no longer reap crops. Be prepared: one after another
people will approach you and put you to the test in this matter.
"If, in addition, you are willing to adopt the religion which I
practice, you will derive further benefits for your life... But you
have arrived with great ambitions and expectations. When you fall
into your evil ways again, you will make me weep...
"All right, you have settled in a desert, yet the land is filled
with riches. You reside on the very backbone of the earth. All kinds
of precious things are buried in this earth. There exists a
storehouse of treasures underground but you must not dig them up
"Three times big war will rage. Should you excavate these treasures
while the killing is taking place, powerful weapons will be forged
from them and people will be slain by them. If you act on your own
in this matter, you will do wrong. Not before the day of
purification has been completed, may you unearth these things. At
that time people will benefit from them. However, if these wars ever
take place here, don’t pick up your weapons, and don’t engage in the
business of killing...”
The people asked Maasaw to be their leader, but he declined. He
"A greater one than I has given you a plan to fulfill first. When
the previous parts of the world were pushed underwater, this new
land was pushed up in the middle to become the backbone of the
earth. You are now standing on its west side slope. But you have not
yet made your migrations. You have not yet followed your stars to
the place where you will meet and settle. This you must do before I
can become your leader. But if you go back to evil ways again I will
take over the earth from you, for I am its caretaker, guardian, and
protector... So go now and claim the land with my permission."
Maasaw then placed four different colors and sizes of corn before
the leaders of the four different racial groups, and had each one
choose which would be their food in this world. The Hopi were the
last to choose, and they picked the smallest ear of multi-colored
corn. Pleased by their choice, Maasaw said:
"It is well done. You have chosen the real corn, for all the others
are imitations inside of which are hidden seeds of different plants.
You have shown me your intelligence; for this reason I will place in
your hands these owa tutuveni [sacred stone tablets], symbols of
power and authority over all land and life to guard, protect, and
hold in trust for me until I return to you in a later day, for I am
the first, but I am also going to be the last."
One of the three Bear Clan tablets describes the land from the
Canyon to the Rio Grande, which was granted by
Maasaw to the Hopis.
Another tablet is inscribed with mnemonic symbols of prophecies. A
third tablet maps the allocations of farmland to the various clans,
and delegates leadership to the Bear Clan. The fourth tablet is a
very precise map of the location of the Sipaapuni, the great
underground city where the Hopi ancestors hid during the destruction
of the past worlds. (see below image)
The symbols on the front of the tablet now held by the Fire Clan
show the mask of Maasaw and the swastika pattern which represents
the Hopi migrations. One corner is missing. The back of the Fire
Clan tablet shows the figure of a headless man, which symbolizes the
In a time to come,
the Hopis will be forced to develop their lives
at the dictates of a new ruler. They are not to resist, but must
wait for their Elder Brother, Antsa Qoetsapava Powatanica. A corner
of the Fire Clan tablet was broken off and given to the Elder
Brother when he left on his migration. He hid it in the Sipaapuni
city because he did not want to risk losing it in the course of his
travels and reincarnations. He will retrieve it when he returns. In
due time, the tablet will be split open to expose interior
inscriptions which will reveal the origin and identity of the Hopi.
Fitting the missing corner piece to the tablet, the Elder Brother
will thus identify himself to the Hopi. The tablet will be split
open to expose interior inscriptions which will reveal the origin
and identity of the Hopi. Then Pahaana will proceed to deliver them
from their persecutors and develop with them a new and universal
brotherhood of man. But if he accepts any other religion, he must
assent to having his own head cut off. This will dispel the evil and
save the Hopi people.
The chief of the Bow Clan led the faithful Hopi to this new land,
but he fell into evil ways. His two sons rebuked him for his
mistakes, and after he died they assumed the responsibilities of
leadership. Then Maasaw sent the Elder Brother to the east and
across the ocean. Upon reaching his destination, he was to start
back to look for his younger brother, who remained on Turtle Island.
The Elder Brother’s mission was to help his younger brother to bring
about Purification Day, when evil people would be punished and
destroyed. Afterwards, real peace, brotherhood, and everlasting life
would be established. The Elder Brother would restore to his younger
brother all the land which the Evil One among the white men had
The younger brother (the Hopi ancestors) was instructed to travel
throughout Turtle Island and mark his trail with the petroglyphs we
see today. This was done to claim the land, and to record and
preserve the history of the Indians throughout the reign of white
men. The whites would destroy most of the native Americans’ oral
history and culture before destroying themselves also.
A great white star would appear when the Elder Brother reached his
destination. All people were to settle wherever they happened to be
at that time, and there they were to remain until the Elder Brother
The Hopi settled in
Tuuwanasavi, the area now known as Four Corners,
where the state lines of Arizona, New Mexico,
Utah and Colorado
(click image left). This area is the "heart" of Turtle Island and of Mother Earth,
and it is the microcosmic image of the entire planet. There, the
Hopi lived a simple life as stewards of the land, which produced
abundant crops despite being a desert. Their katsina ceremonies
serve to maintain the balance of natural forces and to reaffirm
their faith in Taiowa, in Maasaw and other spirits, and to show
respect for all life.
Maasaw told the Hopi that after a time Pahana, White Man, would come
and take their land and try to lead the Hopi into evil ways. Life
would be Koyaanisqatsi ("World out of balance").
The Hopi were told
that they must hold to their ancient religion and their land, and
they must do it without violence. Maasaw promised that if they
succeeded, their people and land would be a center where the True
Spirit would reawaken.
Maasaw said that after many years the Elder Brother might change the
color of his skin, but his hair will remain black, and he will wear
it long, in a braided tail. He will wear a red cloak or a red cap
which resembles the back of a horned toad. He will speak the Hopi
language, and he will be able to write. He will follow no religion
but his very own. He will bring (or come to recover) the missing
corner of the Owa Tutuveni, and he will correctly interpret the
Hopi Owa Tutuveni
The Hopi are to meet him on the trail on the east side of Oraibi if
he is on time (on the last day of Soyal, the winter solstice
ceremony), or on the trail to Sikya’wa (Yellow Rock), at Chokuw
(Pointed Rock), Nahoyungvasa (Cross Fields), or at Tawtona (Where
the Sun Ray Goes Over the Line) below Oraibi if he is 5, 10, 15, or
20 years late.
Then, great judgment and punishment will take place. The Elder
Brother will help the younger brother obtain justice. In one day he
will gain control of the whole continent. Even the Hopi people must
"If he comes from the East, the destruction will not be so bad. But
if he comes from the West, do not go up on your housetops to see
because he will have no mercy."
It is said that the Elder Brother will bring with him two great,
intelligent and powerful helpers. One will have a sign of a swastika
and the sign of the sun. The first helper can be interpreted to
represent the German-Japanese Axis of World War Two. From the Hopis’
perspective, these enemies of the USA were doing the Indians a real
service. The second helper will have the sign of a Celtic Cross with
red lines between the arms of the cross. In the Hopi symbology, this
form of cross represents women, and the red lines indicates their
menstrual flow. The symbol represents their liberation and the
revival of matriarchal power after ages of suppression.
Maasaw warned that if these great beings failed, terrible evil would
befall the world and great numbers of people would be killed.
However, they would succeed if enough Hopi remained true to the
ancient spirit of their people. Unfortunately, there are very few
traditionalist Hopis remaining today, so the situation looks very
Hopi prophecy states that World War III will be started by the
people who first received the light -- China, Palestine, India
and Africa. When the war comes, the United States will be destroyed by
"a gourd of ashes" which will be thrown to the ground. The rivers
will boil, the earth shall burn, and no grass will grow there for
many years. It will cause a disease that no medicine can cure. This
can only mean that nuclear weapons will be used against the USA. The
Hopi traditionalist Thomas Banyaca has said that if many US soldiers
are sent overseas, they will be killed by atomic bombs, and then
Turtle Island also will be bombed. "Men will fall from the sky",
meaning that invading soldiers will parachute to earth. Another Hopi
Blue Star Kachina dances in the plaza, the time of the
great trial will be here... The end of all Hopi ceremonies will come
when a Kachina removes his mask during a dance in the plaza before
uninitiated children. For a while there will be no more ceremonies,
no more faith. Then Oraibi will be rejuvenated with its faith and
ceremonies, marking the start of a new cycle of Hopi life."
The following Hopi prophecy was first published in a mimeographed
manuscript that circulated among several Methodist and Presbyterian
churches in 1959. While driving along a desert road one hot day in
the summer of 1958, a minister named David Young stopped to offer a
ride to a Hopi elder, who accepted with a nod. After riding in
silence for several minutes, the elder said:
"I am White Feather, a
Hopi of the ancient Bear Clan. In my long
life I have traveled through this land, seeking out my brothers, and
learning from them many things full of wisdom. I have followed the
sacred paths of my people, who inhabit the forests and many lakes in
the east, the land of ice and long nights in the north, the
mountains and streams of jumping fish in the west, and the places of
holy altars of stone built long ago by my brothers’ fathers in the
south. From all these I have heard the stories of the past, and the
prophecies of the future. Today, many of the prophecies have turned
to stories, and few are left --- the past grows longer, and the
future grows shorter.
"And now White Feather is dying. His sons have all joined his
ancestors, and soon he too shall be with them. But there is no one
left, no one to recite and pass on the ancient wisdom. My people
have tired of the old ways. The great ceremonies that tell of our
origins, of our Emergence into the Fourth World, are almost all
abandoned, forgotten. Yet even this has been foretold. The time
"My people await Pahana, the lost
White Brother, as do all our
brothers in the land. He will not be like the white men we know now,
who are cruel and greedy. We were told of their coming long ago. But
still we await Pahana.
"He will bring with him the symbols, the missing piece of that
sacred tablet now kept by the elders, given to him when he left,
that shall identify him as our True White Brother.
Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin.
This the elders everywhere know. The signs over many years have been
fulfilled, and so few are left.
"This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of the
white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana --- men
who took the land that was not theirs. And men who struck their
enemies with thunder.
"This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of the
spinning wheels of wood filled with voices. In my youth, my father
saw this prophecy come true with his eyes --- the white men bringing
their families in wagons across the prairies.
"This is the Third Sign: A strange beast, like a buffalo but with
great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers. These
White Feather saw with his own eyes --- the coming of the white mens’ cattle.
"This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be criss-crossed by snakes
"This is the Fifth Sign: The land will be criss-crossed by a giant
"This is the Sixth Sign: The land will be criss-crossed with rivers
of stone that make pictures in the sun.
"This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black,
and many living things dying because of it.
"This is the Eighth Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their
hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn
their ways and wisdom.
"And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling
place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great
crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the
ceremonies of my people will cease.
"These are the Signs that great destruction is coming. The world
shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle against other
people in other lands --- with those who possessed the first light
of wisdom. There will be many columns of smoke such as White Feather
has seen the white man make in the deserts not far from here. Only
those which come will cause disease and a great dying. Many of my
people, understanding the prophecies, shall be safe. Those who stay
and live in the places of my people also shall be safe. Then there
will be much to rebuild. And soon --- very soon afterward --- Pahana
will return. He shall bring with him the dawn of the Fifth World. He
shall plant the seeds of his wisdom in their hearts. Even now the
seeds are being planted. These shall smooth the way to the Emergence
into the Fifth World.
"But White Feather shall not see it. I am old and dying. You ---
perhaps you will see it. In time, in time..."
The Hopi elder became silent. They had arrived at his destination,
and Rev. Young stopped to let him out of the car. They never met
again. Rev. Young died in 1976, so he did not live to see the
further fulfillment of this remarkable prophecy.
The signs are interpreted thus:
The First Sign is of guns, and the
Second is of the pioneers’ covered wagons.
The Third Sign is of
The Fourth describes railroad tracks, and the Fifth
is a clear image of electric power and telephone lines.
Sign describes concrete highways and their effect of producing
The Seventh Sign predicts catastrophic oil spills such as
the Exxon Valdez.
The Eighth Sign suggests the hippy movement of the
1960s and 70s.
The Ninth Sign was the US space station Skylab, which
fell to Earth in 1979.
According to Australian eyewitnesses, it
appeared to be burning blue. Or, the Russian
space station Mir may
be indicated here.
Another version of this prophecy says that when a black ribbon (the
highway) is built on the land, a bug (the automobile) will move on
it, and this will be this sign for the first shaking of the Earth,
World War One. The first shaking will be so violent that the bug
will be shaken off the earth and will begin to fly (the airplane),
leaving a trail of dirt behind it. Eventually the sky will become so
dirty that it will cause diseases that will become worse and worse.
This may refer to the current controversy about "chem-trails", the
aerial web of chemical sprays that are beings spewed over America.
Another Hopi prophecy warns that nothing should be brought back from
the Moon --- obviously anticipating the Apollo 11 mission that
returned with samples of lunar basalt. The Hopi warned that it would
disturb the balance of natural and universal laws and forces,
resulting in earthquakes, severe changes in weather patterns, and
social unrest. All these things are happening today.
In 1948, the Hopi spiritualist leaders chose four representatives to
approach the United Nations. Because of their prophetic knowledge,
the Hopi leaders felt it was time to go east to the edge of Turtle
Island, where a “House of Mica [glass] would stand at this time,
where Great Leaders from many lands would be gathered to help any
people who are in trouble.” They were to go there when the lands of
the Hopi and other Indian brothers were about to be taken away from
them and their way of life was in danger of being completely
destroyed by evil ones among the white men and by some other Indian
brothers who were influenced by the white race. This is a clear and
present danger, because the infernal meddling of Christians, the
betrayal of treaties by the federal government, the sale of tribal
lands by Indians, and the ecological disasters caused by coal and
uranium mining, are destroying the Hopi land and people, and all
According to prophecy, at least one, two, or three leaders or
nations would hear and understand the Hopi warnings, for they too
should know the ancient instructions. Upon hearing the message of
the Hopi, they were to act immediately to correct many wrongs being
done to the Red Man. However, the Hopi might find that the doors of
the Mica House would be closed to them:
"When Great Leaders in the Mica House refuse to open the door when
you stand before it that day, do not be discouraged or turn about on
the path you walk, but take courage, determination, and be of great
rejoicing in your hearts, for on that day the White Race who are on
your land with you have cut themselves from you and thereon lead
themselves to the greatest Punishment at the Day of Purification.
Men shall be destroyed for their sins and evil ways. The Great
Spirit has decreed it and no one can stop it, change it, or add
anything to it. It shall be fulfilled!"
In 1959, another delegation of six traditional Hopi elders, led by
Dan Katchongva, traveled to the UN building. Their prophecies
foretold that if the Hopi’s request to address the House of Mica was
refused after knocking (visiting) four times, mankind would surely
be destroyed. Thomas Banyaca knocked for the fourth time in 1991,
and was permitted to address the General Assembly for a few minutes
during the opening ceremonies of the UN’s International Year of
Indigenous Peoples December 10, 1992. He was the last speaker, and
only a few UN delegates remained to hear him. He said:
"We have made a sacred covenant to follow
Maasaw, the Great Spirit’s
Life Plan at all times, which includes the responsibility of taking
care of this land and life for his divine purpose. Our goals are not
to gain political control, monetary wealth, or military power, but
rather to pray and to promote the welfare of all living beings and
to preserve the world in a natural way."
Banyaca then told the Hopi story of the previous worlds which were
destroyed because of human greed, and warned that this world, too,
is near its end. He said:
"This is now a time to weigh the choices for our future. We do have
a choice. If you, the nations of this Earth, create another great
war, the Hopi believe we humans will burn ourselves to death with
ashes. That’s why the spiritual Elders strongly urge that the United
Nations fully open the door for Native spiritual leaders as soon as
possible... The Native peoples of the world have seen and spoken to
you about the destruction of their lives and homelands, the
ruination of nature and the desecration of their sacred sites. It is
time the United Nations used its rules to investigate these
occurrences and stop them now."
Grandfather Banyaca requested that the UN protect the Four Corners
area, because it will have a special purpose in the future survival
of humankind. He asked that the UN keep its doors open for spiritual
leaders of all peoples "to come to speak to you for more than a few
minutes". He also invited world leaders to visit the Hopi country
and "sit down with our real spiritual leaders in their sacred kiva"
and learn their "ancient secrets of survival and balance." The UN
has failed to respond.
A 9th century Tibetan prophecy states:
"When the iron bird flies, the Dharma [Buddhism] will go east to the
land of the Red Man."
This prophecy was fulfilled in 1980 when the Dalai Lama visited
America and met with Hopi elders in Los Angeles and with leaders of
the Iroquois Confederacy in Syracuse, NY. (7)
Between 1975 and 1986, a group of traditionalist elders and
English-speaking Hopis cooperated to produce 44 issues of a
newsletter called Techqua Ikach (Land & Life), totaling over 200
pages which outlined their prophetic message in great detail. In
1993, Thomas Mails was selected by Dan Evehema (then 100 years old)
to represent the authorized prophecies. The resulting book Hotevila
was written in complete secrecy to prevent interference from the
Hopi Tribal Council. (8)
The prophecies transmitted in Techqua Ikach state:
"One day Hopi children with short hair or bald heads would be the
ears and mouth for the elders, and in time become the leaders. So
the Hopi Tribal Council was formed...The Bahanas’
gradually cease their responsibility in caring for the Native
people... Any mistake we make will be our own doing. The Bahana
government would not be responsible. Their influence would linger on
in making sure we run our government the Bahana way, not by our
own... traditional ways... If we link ourselves with a culture not
of our own... it will be difficult to regain what we discard in the
name of progress. Of course we can continue to practice what we
lose, but it will have lost its value. What happens at the end will
be the consequences of our carelessness.
"According to prophecy,
the Hopi are to be the last target. We are
to be conquered, not by the Army and their weapons, but by our own
people. By our sons and daughters without us lifting our hands.
Their weapon will be what they learned through the education so
kindly taught by the Bahana... The Bahanas will pat the back of the
conquerors while cheering and applauding. They will be satisfied
that they are not required to finish the task which they set out to
accomplish. It is our own people who bring this about and the
Bahanas, therefore, cannot be blamed. The conquest will be over and
all Native People will be finished. This is a sad ending and it is a
pity that we must end this way...
"It is said if purification does not come, our Great Creator will
take the land back because we do not care for the land and we don’t
deserve to be on it. The above subject, to our children, is
soundless and has no meaning...
"One day our own children may become our enemies. Schools will
destroy the sacred balance of Hopi life. They will interrupt the
traditions and people will forget the instructions of Maasaw. This
destruction will reach much further than our village. The whole
Earth could go off balance.
"As foretold, all of this information must come out into the open at
the period when we are about to be overcome by harmful elements and
can step no further...
"Just two or three righteous people will be able to fulfill the
Creator’s mission. Even one truly righteous would be able to do
"Three people were named who were to help the Hopi when we reached
the crisis of no return. The Paiute Indian was to help according to
his wisdom, but if he is unable the Navajo Indian will help also,
according to his wisdom. If their efforts fail then Bahana will come
to aid. This is where we are now...
"So it was predicted that one day we would encounter the presence of
people with ways different from our own; they will pose as
good-hearted. Their words will be charming and they will multiply
like ants. We must not be deceived by them, for the vines of their
kingdom will spread throughout the land, diluting and dissolving
everything that gets in its way. We must be cautious and not covet
or adopt any of their ways, for it will forever be a curse upon our
"It is said, among the Bahana the people of the Cross will appear on
our land. They will be kind and helpful with good hearts. Beware,
for they will be the instruments of Bahana’s kingdom and will seduce
you into forsaking the laws of our Great Creator. The wicked of our
people will join their flock to clear their sins, but this will be
"One day a strange people will appear in our midst, people who will
create man in his own image. Once given his language and knowledge,
our people will become the instrument by which he will try to rule
over us and carve the rest of us into his image. Our own people will
become his tools, and he will make certain they do a good job.
"But if we remain strong and firmly rooted, we will not be reshaped,
whereas others will slump because they are rootless. So when the
tests come we must possess the strength to preserve ourselves...
"The Earth is like a spotted fawn, and each spot has a duty to make
the body function. Hopiland is the center of the earth’s body. It is
the spot of power with the duty to foretell the future by comparing
the actions of mankind with the prophecy told them..."
Martin Gawanesha, a traditionalist Hopi elder, emphasizes that most
of the events predicted by their prophecies already have happened,
and that the Great Purification is imminent:
"Life has become out of balance. When people are so out of balance,
some one will hear our voice and our White Brother will answer the
call and clean away the evil ones. According to prophecy, when the
purification is over only a handful of people will survive in every
nation overseas. Then they will come to this continent, which we
call heaven. This is where the Creator first lived and that’s what
he called it. He sent his own son from Oraibi to
Bethlehem in order
to be born there. The Hopi already knew that the morning star would
rise one day and someone special would be born...
"In our prophecies there are two brothers, one dark-skinned younger
brother and the light-skinned elder who we call the White Brother.
Together they will decide how the purification will be accomplished.
"The two brothers were with us when we first came to this continent.
When their father passed away, the elder brother went out in the
direction of the sunrise and the younger brother stayed here. They
had agreed the elder brother would go, but would not stay away too
long. He would return when people would travel on a road built in
the air. At that time we would know that the earth had been
corrupted to the point that it must be purified.
"We’ve come to that point now. Everything has been corrupted.
Because we are out of balance, we don’t obey the laws... It’s too
late now for gradual voluntary corrections...
"As Hopis... we are calling for the purification because it is our
obligation. We’re ready, we want it to happen... We’ve already gone
over the time limit that was given to us in the prophecy..." (7)
Hopi prophecy also warns that there will be three divisions among
the Hopi. The first division was in 1906 between the traditionalists
and the modernists. The traditionalists were forced to leave Oraibi
and move to Hotevila. The second division took place in the
aftermath of a spectacular UFO sighting in August 1970. The
division is occurring now as the Tribal Council has forced the
installation of electric power and other modern inconveniences upon
the unwilling traditionalist residents of Hotevila.
During the Hopi Hearings of 1955, many elders spoke forth to remind
people of the ancient prophecies. One elder said:
"Then the sun won’t be as hot any more, and the summer season will
grow shorter and shorter. One day the weather will no longer get
warm. You will experience snowfall at the height of planting time.
Then you will have to sow wearing gloves and long underwear. To sow,
the farmer will have to push aside the snow, dig a hole, and then
plant his seeds. It will come to this if you extract those precious
things from the earth.
"And all the grasses across the land, which many different animals
feed on to raise their young, will not grow as before. In the future
the animals will suffer great hardships. Then the grasses will not
sprout. There will be no point in having rain; nothing will grow as
it used to.
"Gradually your corn plants will produce only tassels and then
everything will freeze. And when you replant, only tiny, stunted
ears will appear, and then they too will freeze. The third time you
sow, the stalks will still be short before the frost strikes. By the
fourth time the plants will barely have pierced the earth before
freezing. All of these predictions Maasaw made to the Hopi." (8, 9)
The newsletter Techqua Ikach warned people thus:
"When the end is near, we will see a halo of mist around the
heavenly bodies. Four times it will appear around the sun as a
warning that we must reform, telling us that people of all color
must unite and arise for survival...
"We were warned the ice will grow again. Should the [Flute] Clans
with the controlling powers vanish or stray away from the great laws
of the Creator, there will be no way of stopping the ice buildup. So
the time will come when we will experience late springs and early
frosts, this will be the sign of the returning Ice Age...
"The time will come when from the Earth will arise a mystic fog
which will dilute the minds and hearts of all people... A sudden
eruption will explode in the midst of their follies, and this
will... creep over the earth. Then men will destroy each other
"The day will come when people in high places will be hunted and
vice versa, the lowly hunters will be hunted. This will get out of
control. The hunting will gather strength and spread far and wide...
"The period of this age will close by the gourd of ashes which will
glow brighter than the Sun. The earth will turn over four times and
mankind will end up in the lowest level of darkness there they will
crawl around on all fours forever. Then the spirits of our Ancient
Fathers will return to reclaim the land. They will mock the lowly
man for he will no longer deserve or be worthy of the land. Only
those who are obedient to the guidance of the Great Creator’s laws
will survive... the true brother and sister will give a rebirth to
the Earth and renew its life."
The Elder Thomas Banyaca adds this warning:
"If corruption of nature becomes so thick and pollution so thick, we
will be in darkness, and if we don’t change things, the animals...
they’re going to yell at us. Pretty soon the eagles flying over us
will be going to cry at us; when you walk in the woods, the trees,
some will cry at you --- because human beings are supposed to take
care of them also, through prayer, meditation, and ceremony instead
of destroying them with machinery and inventions that you have
It is also said elsewhere in
Hopi prophecy, that "Turtle Island
could turn over two or three times and the oceans join hands and
meet the sky." Several passages in the Bible also suggest that the
Earth will some day roll over in its orbit (Isaiah 13:13; and 24:1,
19, 20, 23; Matthew 24: 29; Revelation 6:12-14; II Peter 3:10; Amos
Since 1931, geophysicists have detected nearly
of the north magnetic pole, moving northwest.
After the Great Deluge several thousand years ago, the survivors
split up into four groups, who migrated north, south, east and west.
Only one group completed their journey --- to the North Pole and
back --- under the guidance of a brilliant "star" in which
Maasaw traveled. When he landed, Maasaw drew the petroglyph on
showing a maiden (with the traditional "butterfly" hair arrangement)
riding in a wingless, dome-shaped craft. The petroglyph tells of the
coming Day of Purification, when the true Hopi will
fly to other
planets in "flying shields". (image above)
