I am very glad to have this time to send a message to you. We are celebrating a
time in our history which is both filled with joy and sadness.
I am very glad that our Hindu brothers have given us this opportunity to share
these feelings with you because we know many of you are having the same
We Hopi believe that the human race has passed through three different worlds
and life ways since the beginning. At the end of each prior world, human life
has been purified or punished by the Great Spirit "Massauu" due mainly to
corruption, greed, and turning away from the Great Spirit's teachings.
The last great destruction was the flood which destroyed all but a few faithful
ones who asked and received a permission from the Great Spirit to live with Him
in this new land.
The Great Spirit said, "It is up to you, if you are willing to live my poor,
humble, and simple life way. It is hard but if you agree to live according to my
teachings and instructions, if you never lose faith in the life I shall give
you, you may come and live with me."
The Hopi and all who were saved from the great flood made a sacred covenant with
the Great Spirit at that time. We Hopi made an oath that we will never turn away
from Him. For us the Creator's laws never change or break down. To the Hopi the
Great Spirit is all powerful.
He appeared to the first people as a man and talked with them in the beginning
of this creation world. He taught us how to live, to worship, where to go and
what food to carry, gave us seeds to plant and harvest. He gave us a set of
sacred stone tablets into which He breathed all teachings in order to safeguard
his land and life.
In these stone tablets were made, instructions and prophecies and warnings. This
was done with the help of a Spider woman and Her two grandsons. They were wise
and powerful helpers of the Great Spirit.
Before the Great Spirit went into hiding, He and Spider woman put before the
leaders of the different groups of people many colors and sizes of corn for them
to choose their food in this world. The Hopi was the last to pick and then
choose their food in this world. The Hopi then chose the smallest ear of corn.
Then Massauu said, "You have shown me you are wise and humble. For this reason
you will be called Hopi (people of peace) and I will place in your authority all
land and life to guard, protect, and hold trust for Me until I return to you in
later days for I am the First and the Last."
This why when a Hopi is ordained into the higher religious order, the earth and
all living things are placed upon his hands. He becomes a parent to all life on
earth. He is entitled to advise and correct his children in whatever peaceful
way he can. So we can never give up knowing that our message of peace will reach
our children. Then it is together with the other spiritual leaders the destiny
of our future children is placed.
We are instructed to hold this world in balance within the land and the many
universes with special prayers and ritual which continue to this day.
It was to the Spider woman's two grandsons the sacred stone tablets were given.
These two brothers were then instructed to carry them to a place the Great
Spirit had instructed them. The older brother was to go immediately to the east,
to the rising sun and upon reaching his destination was instructed to
immediately start to look for his younger brother who shall remain in the land
of the Great Spirit.
The Older brothers mission when he returned was to help his younger brother
(Hopi) bring obout peace, brotherhood and everlasting life on his return. Hopi,
the younger brother, was instructed to cover all land and mark it well with
footprints and sacred markings to claim this land for the Creator and peace on
We established our ceremonials and sacred shrines to hold this world in balance
in accordance with our first promise to the Creator. This is how our migration
story goes, until we meet the Creator at Old Oribe (place that solidifies) over
1000 years ago.
It was at that meeting when he gave to us these prophecies to give to you now at
this closing of the Fourth World of destruction and the beginning of the Fifth
World of peace. He gave us many prophecies to pass on to you and all have come
to pass. This is how we know the timing is now to reveal the last warnings and
instructions to mankind.
We were told to settle permanently here in Hopi land where we met the Great
Spirit and wait for Older Brother who went east to return to us. When he returns
to this land he will place his stone tablets side by side to show all the world
that they are our true brothers.
When the road in the sky has been fulfilled and when the inventing of something,
in Hopi means, gourd of ashes, a gourd that when drops upon the earth will boil
everything within a large space and nothing will grow for a very long time.
When the leaders turned to evil ways instead of the Great Spirit we were told
there would be many ways this life may be destroyed. If human kind does not heed
our prophecy and return to one's original spiritual instructions.
We were told of three helpers who were commissioned by the Great Spirit to help
Hopi bring about the peaceful life on earth would appear to help us and we
should not change our homes, our ceremonials, our hair, because the true helpers
might not recognize us as the true Hopi.
So we have been waiting all these years.
It is known that our True White Brother, when he comes, will be all powerful and
will wear a red cap or red cloak. He will be large in population, belong to no
religion but his very own. He will bring with him the sacred stone tablets. With
him there will be two great ones both very wise and powerful.
One will have a symbol or sign of swastika which represents purity and is
Female, a producer of life. The third one or the second one of the two helpers
to our True White Brother will have a sign of a symbol of the sun. He, too, will
be many people and very wise and powerful. We have in our sacred Kachina
ceremonies a gourd rattle which is still in use today with these symbols of
these powerful helpers of our True Brother.
It is also prophesied that if these three fail to fulfill their mission then the
one from the west will come like a big storm. He will be many, in numbers and
unmerciful. When he comes he will cover the land like the red ants and over take
this land in one day.
If the three helpers chosen by the Creator fulfill their sacred mission and even
if there are only one, two, or three of the true Hopi remaining holding fast to
the last ancient teaching and instructions the Great Spirit, Massauu will appear
before all and our would will be saved.
The three will lay our a new life plan which leads to everlasting life and
peace. The earth will become new as it was from the beginning. Flowers will
bloom again, wild game will return to barren lands and there will be abundance
of food for all. Those who are saved will share everything equally and they all
will recognize Great Spirit and speak one language.
We are now faced with great problems, not only here but throughout the land.
Ancient cultures are being annihilated. Our people's lands are being taken from
them, leaving them no place to call their own.
Why is this happening?
It is happening because many have given up or manipulated their original
spiritual teachings. The way of life which the Great Spirit has given to all its
people of the world, whatever your original instructions are not being honored.
It is because of this great sickness called greed, which infects every land and
country that simple people are losing what they have kept for thousands of
Now we are at the very end of our trail.
Many people no longer recognize the true path of the Great Spirit. They have, in
fact, no respect for the Great Spirit or for our precious Mother Earth, who
gives us all life. We are instructed in our ancient prophecy that this would
We were told that someone would try to go up to the moon: that they would bring
something back from the moon; and that after that, nature would show signs of
losing its balance. Now we see that coming about.
All over the world there are now many signs that nature is no longer in balance.
Floods, drought, earthquakes, and great storms are occurring and causing much
suffering. We do not want this to occur in our country and we pray to the Great
Spirit to save us from such things. But there are now signs that this very same
thing might happen very soon on our own land.
Now we must look upon each other as brothers and sisters. There is no more time
for divisions between people. Today I call upon all of us, from right here at
home, Hotevilla, where we to are guilty of gossiping and causing divisions even
among our own families; out to the entire world where thievery, war, and lying
goes on every day. These divisions will not be our salvation. Wars only bring
more wars never peace.
Only by joining together in a Spiritual Peace with love in our hearts for one
another, love in our hearts for the Great Spirit and Mother Earth, shall we be
saved from the terrible Purification Day which is just ahead.
There are many of you in this world who are honest people. We know you
spiritually for we are the "Men's Society Grandfathers" who have been charged to
pray for you and all life on earth never forgetting anything or any one in our
Our prayer is to have a good happy life, plenty of soft gentle rain for abundant
crops. We pray for balance on earth to live in peace and leave a beautiful world
to the children yet to come.
We know you have good hearts but good hearts are not enough to help us out with
these great problems. In the past some of you have tried to help us Hopis, and
we will always be thankful for you efforts. But now we need your help in the
We want the people of the world to know the truth of our situation. This land
which people call the Land of the Freedom celebrates many days reminding people
of the world of these things. Yet in well over 200 years the original Americans
have not seen a free day.
We are suffering the final insult.
Our people are now losing the one thing which give life and meaning of life --
our ceremonial land, which is being taken away from us. Hotevilla is the last
holy consecrated, undisturbed traditional Native American sacred shrine to the
Creator. As the prophecy says, this sacred shrine must keep its spiritual
This village is the spiritual vortex for the Hopi to guide the many awakening
Native Americans and other true hearts home to their own unique culture.
Hotevilla was established by the last remaining spiritual elders to maintain
peace and balance on this continent from the tip of South America up to Alaska.
Many of our friends say Hotevilla is a sacred shrine, a national and world
treasure and must be preserved. We need your help.
Where is the freedom which you all fight for and sacrifice your children for?
Is it only the Indian people who have lost or are all Americans losing the very
thing which you original came here to find?
We don't share the freedom of the press because what gets into the papers is
what the government wants people to believe, not what is really happening. We
have no freedom of speech, because we are persecuted by our own people for
speaking our beliefs. We are at the final stages now and there is a last force
that is about to take away our remaining homeland.
We are still being denied many things including the rite to be Hopis and to make
our living in accordance with our religious teachings. The Hopi leaders have
warned leaders in the White House and the leaders in the Glass House but they do
not listen. So as our prophecy says then it must be up to the people with good
pure hearts that will not be afraid to help us to fulfill our destiny in peace
for this world.
We now stand at a cross road whether to lead ourselves in everlasting life or
total destruction. We believe that human beings spiritual power through prayer
is so strong it decides life on earth.
So many people have come to Hopiland to meet with us. Some of you we have met on
your lands. Many times people have asked how they can help us. Now I hope and
pray that your help will come.
If you have a way to spread the truth, through the newspapers, radio, books,
thought meeting with powerful people, tell the truth! Tell them what you know to
be true. Tell them what you have seen here; what you have heard us say; what you
have seen with your own eyes. In this way, if we do fall, let it be said that we
tried, right up to the end, to hold fast to the path of peace as we were
originally instructed to do by the Great Spirit.
Should you really succeed, we will all realize our mistakes of the past and
return to the true path-living in harmony as brothers and sisters, sharing our
mother, the earth with all other living creatures. In this way we could bring
about a new world. A world which would be led by the great Spirit and our mother
will provide plenty and happiness for all.
God bless you, each one of you and know our prayers for peace meet yours as the
sun rises and sets. May the Great Spirit guide you safely
into the path of love,
peace freedom and God on this Earth Mother. May the holy ancestors of love and
light keep you safe in your land and homes. Pray for God to give you something
important to do in this great work which lies ahead of us all to bring peace on
We the Hopi still hold the sacred stone tablets and now await the coming of our
True White Brother and others seriously ready to work for the Creator's peace on
Be well, my children, and think good thoughts of peace and togetherness. Peace
for all life on earth and peace with one another in our homes, families and
countries. We are not so different in the Creator's eyes. The same great Father
Sun shines his love on each of us daily just as Mother Earth prepares the
sustenance for our table, do they not?
We are one after all
