From the Hopi

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 years.
     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 occur.  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 [our] 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 too 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 ceremonials.  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 worst way.  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 pathways open.  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 right 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 who 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 earth.  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 earth.
     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 sustance for our table, do they not?  We are one after all.
