American Indians are a diverse ethnic group.
Their languages, customs, social systems varied
greatly. One common characteristic found in
many Indian nations was an affinity to the
spiritual side of life. Out of this came man
One of the most fascinating set of prophecies
comes out of the Hopi nation located in the
Southwestern United States. Many prophecies
foretold by the Hopi appear to have come true.
Some of these are:
The Fourth World shall
end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. This
everywhere know. The Signs over many years
have been fulfilled, and so few are left.
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 sign seems to refer to the guns
use to defeat and overtake the Indians
and their land.
is the Second Sign
Our lands will see the coming of spinning
wheels filled with voices.
Refers to the white men bringing their
families in wagons across the prairies.
is the Third Sign:
A strange beast like a buffalo but
with great long horns, will overrun
the land in large numbers.
White Feather saw with his eyes --
white men's longhorn cattle
is the Fourth Sign
The land will be crossed by snakes
This sign describes the railroad tracks
that run throughout the United States.
is the Fifth Sign
The land shall be criss-crossed by
a giant spider's web.
Refers to a clear image of our electric
power and telephone lines, or perhaps
the World Wide Web.
is the Sixth sign
The land shall be criss-crossed with
rivers of stone that make pictures
in the sun.
This sign describes our concrete highways
and their mirage-producing effects.
is the Seventh Sign
You will hear of the sea turning
black, and many living things dying
This sign foretells of oil spills in
is the Eight 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.
Clearly indicates the "Hippy Movement" of
And this is the Ninth and Last
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.
The Ninth Sign seems to be the U.S.
Space Station Skylab, which fell to Earth
in 1979. According to Australian eyewitnesses,
it appeared to be burning blue. Others
believe that this sign may be referring
to the reemergence of the planet known
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 and fire 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.
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. It this was done,
the Hopi warned, the balance of natural and
universal laws and forces would be disturbed,
resulting in earthquakes, severe changes in
weather patterns, and social unrest. All these
things are happening today, though of course
not necessarily because of Moon rocks.
The Hopi also predicted that when the "heart" of
the Hopi land trust is dug up, great disturbances
will develop in the balance of nature, for
the Hopi holy land is the microcosmic image
of the entire planet; any violations of nature
in the Four Corners region will be reflected
and amplified all over the Earth.
Overall, the theme of the Hopi prophecy is
that the Earth is going to soon go through
a great purification and that humanity can
make the decision as to how extreme this purification
will be. Their belief is that the world goes
through a period of destruction and renewal
and that we are about to enter into a new age,
the 5th world (or 6th depending upon the source).
