Are we civilized?

“Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison.
Because of this, we had no delinquents.
Without a prison, there can be no delinquents.
We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves.
When someone was so poor that he couldn’t afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift.
We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property.
We didn’t know any kind of money and consequently, the value of a human being was not determined by his wealth.
We had no written laws laid down, no lawyers, no politicians, therefore we were not able to cheat and swindle one another.
We were really in bad shape before the white men arrived and I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for a civilized society.”
~John (Fire) Lame Deer

A Different Perspective…

 This quote speaks many truths within my being, so I thought I would share it with you today.

 I often like to imagine how the world would be if we didn’t tear into our mother earth as if she was a valuable resource, but rather sit back and allow her to provide like she has for thousands of years. Imagine not having to wake up and go to work.

Imagine instead being able to go for a walk and collect the freshest of foods which grow in abundance all around us. Leisurely walks where we take in the beautiful scenery around us and let our senses be renewed. Breathe in the pure air, and watch the trees sway to the rhythm of the wind. The doe and her young nibble on fields of clover unafraid of your presence, because too often you have crossed paths. You share the earth, as it was ment to be shared and all of life prospers, in both peace and well-being. What a vision.

This vision is a true way of life, in alignment with spirit. This vision was lived upon the very land you read this less then a hundred and fifty years ago.

You ask me to plow the ground. Shall I take a knife and tear my mother’s
bosom? Then when I die she will not take me to her bosom to rest. You ask
me to dig for stones! Shall I dig under her skin for bones? Then when I die
I cannot enter her body to be born again. You ask me to cut grass and
make hay and sell it and be rich like white men, but how dare I cut my
mother’s hair. I want my people to stay with me here. All the dead men
will come to life again. Their spirits will come to their bodies again. We
must wait here in the homes of our fathers and be ready to meet them
in the bosom of our mother.
-WOVOKA (JACK WILSON),
PAIUTE SPIRITUAL LEADER, C. 1856-1932

Russell Means and The Republic of Lakota

I would like to point out that we are all human beings here on this earth. We all have our own stengths, weaknesses, faults, motives and dreams that enable us to learn our lessons here upon mother earth.

I believe the video above speaks of Russell’s dreams. The article below will show you a little more about Russell and his character. I ask that you keep an open mind and not judge this man. Recognize that he, like us, is human and reaching toward his dreams.  ~Kat

Call to heal our Earth Mother on 3/21/08

Passing along the word to bring healing for our Mother Earth, if you do not play the drums please take this opportunity to send up some prayers to our Creator. Lots of love to you all, Kat

8,000 Drums Healing Ceremony

March 21, 2008

2PM EST
Gilles Novaks, who is a Montagnais Indian from Montreal and a Medicine Man and a Healer, requests all Tribal people (actually all peoples) to participate in a worldwide ceremony called the ‘8,000 Drums’. He was contacted by two Huron Clan Grandmothers from up there in Canada and they asked him to help spread the word to all Indians everwhere. It will take place on March 21, 2008 at 12:00 noon MEXICO TIME (2:00PM Eastern Standard Time)!!

All you need to do is play a drum either alone, or with a group or have the whole Tribe participate. The purpose is to fulfill the OTOMI PROPHECY. The Otomi’s are Mayan Olmec and Toltec descendants. The drums will be played so that the Creator will hear us and grant our wishes as we pray for help in the Healing Process of our Mother Earth. The other races of people are destroying Her and our Mother Earth needs our prayers.

Thank you.

Ewo-wox-co-dah-wa.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now you may be asking why 8000 drums? Here’s a good explaination. Lots of thanks to you Mark for passing this on. Many blessings to you.

8000 Drums Magic Number

The Otomi prophecy of 8,000 Sacred Drums joining together
and starting the the healing of Mother Earth is to occur
on March 21, 2008.

This number 8000 has a very special relationship.

It has been found that it takes a certain number of
people to start a shift within human consciousness.
That number is the square root of 1 per cent.

There are over 6.5 billion people on Mother Earth right
now and square root of 1 per cent is around 8000

So the 8000 is around the minimum number we need to start this
process of healing. Amazing!!! this prophesy has a number directly
related with our human consciousness.

But each of us contains within us the ancient ancestral memory
in which we are ALL ONE and thus each of the people participating
on March 21 may consciously connect into the ONE and it will
spread and touch everyone on Mother Earth “inviting” them to join
us … even if they have not heard of the 8,000 Drums.

As we do this drumming, we can also FEEL the HEALING
of ourselves and Mother Earth as if it has already happened.

In other words, step into that future where this healing has
already taken place and give THANKS to the CREATOR for
giving us this blessing.

Please pass this message to others
if you feel it would help.

Blessings,
Mark (Lahun OxLahun)

Forever Oneness

Forever Oneness,
who sings to us in silence,
who teaches us through each other.
Guide my steps with strength and wisdom.
May I see the lessons as I walk,
honor the Purpose of all things.
Help me touch with respect,
always speak from behind my eyes.
Let me observe, not judge.
May I cause no harm,
and leave music and beauty after my visit.
When I return to forever
may the circle be closed
and the spiral be broader.

— Bee Lake (an aboriginal woman)

Lakota withdraw from US treaties

Lakota Indians, tribe of Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, withdraw from treaties with US
December 20, 2007
Lakota Freedom DelegationWASHINGTON (AFP) — The Lakota Indians, who gave the world legendary warriors Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, have withdrawn from treaties with the United States, leaders said Wednesday.

“We are no longer citizens of the United States of America and all those who live in the five-state area that encompasses our country are free to join us,” long-time Indian rights activist Russell Means told a handful of reporters and a delegation from the Bolivian embassy, gathered in a church in a run-down neighborhood of Washington for a news conference.

A delegation of Lakota leaders delivered a message to the State Department on Monday, announcing they were unilaterally withdrawing from treaties they signed with the federal government of the United States, some of them more than 150 years old.

They also visited the Bolivian, Chilean, South African and Venezuelan embassies, and will continue on their diplomatic mission and take it overseas in the coming weeks and months, they told the news conference.

Lakota country includes parts of the states of Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming.

The new country would issue its own passports and driving licences, and living there would be tax-free — provided residents renounce their US citizenship, Means said.

The treaties signed with the United States are merely “worthless words on worthless paper,” the Lakota freedom activists say on their website.

The treaties have been “repeatedly violated in order to steal our culture, our land and our ability to maintain our way of life,” the reborn freedom movement says.

Withdrawing from the treaties was entirely legal, Means said.

“This is according to the laws of the United States, specifically article six of the constitution,” which states that treaties are the supreme law of the land, he said.

“It is also within the laws on treaties passed at the Vienna Convention and put into effect by the US and the rest of the international community in 1980. We are legally within our rights to be free and independent,” said Means.

The Lakota relaunched their journey to freedom in 1974, when they drafted a declaration of continuing independence — an overt play on the title of the United States’ Declaration of Independence from England.

Thirty-three years have elapsed since then because “it takes critical mass to combat colonialism and we wanted to make sure that all our ducks were in a row,” Means said.

One duck moved into place in September, when the United Nations adopted a non-binding declaration on the rights of indigenous peoples — despite opposition from the United States, which said it clashed with its own laws.

“We have 33 treaties with the United States that they have not lived by. They continue to take our land, our water, our children,” Phyllis Young, who helped organize the first international conference on indigenous rights in Geneva in 1977, told the news conference.

The US “annexation” of native American land has resulted in once proud tribes such as the Lakota becoming mere “facsimiles of white people,” said Means.

Oppression at the hands of the US government has taken its toll on the Lakota, whose men have one of the shortest life expectancies — less than 44 years — in the world.

Lakota teen suicides are 150 percent above the norm for the United States; infant mortality is five times higher than the US average; and unemployment is rife, according to the Lakota freedom movement’s website.

“Our people want to live, not just survive or crawl and be mascots,” said Young.

“We are not trying to embarrass the United States. We are here to continue the struggle for our children and grandchildren,” she said, predicting that the battle would not be won in her lifetime.

New Beginnings: 2008 on earth

New Beginnings!
by Patricia Diane Cota-Robles
http://www.eraofpeace.org

Last year at this time, the Beings of Light from the Realms of Illumined Truth said that 2007 would be a year of monumental change and completion. Does anyone have any doubt about that now? Are you still reeling?

Well, we are now being told from On High that 2008, which is numerically a ONE year, will be a time for new beginnings and a birthing into a higher aspect of our Divinity. We may not fully understand just what this means, but the Company of Heaven is assuring us it is a glorious opportunity to transform our lives. All we have to do is take advantage of this auspicious year by focusing our intentions on creating the positive lives we want to experience on Earth.

One is the number of new beginnings, and eleven is the master number that reflects the transformation of the physical into the Divine. January 1, 2008, is numerically a 111 day. Eleven days later on January 11, 2008, we have a 1111 day.

During this rare eleven-day period, the I AM Presence of every person on this planet will integrate the highest potential of the miraculous activities of Light that took place in 2007. This integration will gently reflect into the hearts and minds of all Humanity, and it will raise the energy, vibration and consciousness of every facet of Life evolving on Earth the maximum that Cosmic Law will allow.

This event will open the door so that our I AM Presence will be able to intervene in our lives in new and wondrous ways. We can take advantage of this vitally important opportunity by focusing our intentions on new beginnings and creating the vision of the life we want. Know that the I AM Presence is limitless and that this aspect of our Divinity is One with our Father-Mother God. Our I AM Presence knows all that our Father-Mother God has is ours, and It is able to draw the perfection of God into our lives in amazing and awe-inspiring ways.

When we witness the pain and suffering existing around the world it is difficult to fathom that we are really on the brink of cocreating the harmony and balance of the New Earth in a perceptible way on this planet, but that is exactly what is happening. We have crossed the threshold into the initial impulse of the 5th Dimension. Heavenly events are confirming this Truth; ancient prophecies foretelling this time are being fulfilled, and signs are pointing to this new reality.

During the last three months of 2007, several Cosmic and Galactic events took place that prepared the way for the opportunities that will be presented to us in 2008. We are always affected by any event that involves the Heavenly bodies in our Universe, but this time the synchronicity of the various Galactic alignments opened a Dimensional doorway that catapulted our entire Solar System into the sacred space within which the New Heaven and the New Earth will tangibly manifest.

In our last newsletter, I wrote about some wonderful things that occurred on our sacred Pilgrimage through the Mediterranean and the South of France. That Pilgrimage took place October 15-29, 2007. The events that occurred throughout the Universe during that time frame, prepared the way for the birth of the New Earth.

On October 18, the Elemental Vortices within the physical, etheric, mental and emotional strata of Earth were reactivated. These vortices are spinning forcefields of Light that energize and sustain the patterns of perfection from the Causal Body of God through the earth, air, fire, water and ether elements, which comprise the physical substance in the world of form.

The original intent of these spheres of Light was to sustain the verdant splendor of the Garden of Eden throughout the planet while the Sons and Daughters of God learned to become cocreators with our God Parents. Unfortunately, when Humanity fell from Grace into the quagmire of our own human miscreations, these vortices of Light became dormant. Reactivating them into their full Divine potential was a necessary factor in preparing the way for the birth of the New Earth.

Another very important event took place during our Pilgrimage involving the opening of the blocked Heart Meridian in the body of Mother Earth. This was an imperative component in preparing the way for the birthing of the New Earth. During the first seven days of our Pilgrimage, Mother Earth’s blocked Heart Meridian was God Victoriously opened to full breadth. This was the result of the unified efforts of not only Lightworkers on our Pilgrimage but also the precious Lightworkers around the world who were working in unison with the entire Company of Heaven.

On October 23, we completed the first phase of our Pilgrimage through the Mediterranean and began the second phase of our mission through the South of France. What took place during the next several days, both in the Heavens and on Earth, confirmed the fulfillment of ancient prophecies. These prophecies foretold of a Cosmic Moment when the Earth would begin her ascent into the 5th Dimension resulting in the birth of a New Earth.

On October 23 and 24, a celestial event took place that shocked and amazed astronomers and scientists all over the world. The comet known as 17p/Holmes erupted while passing through the constellation of Perseus. This celestial body expanded its coma into a gaseous forcefield of blue Light that was bigger than our Sun. It grew to over a million times its original size and Light radiance. The comet 17p/Holmes became the largest single object in our Solar System. This event was referred to by astronomers as the strangest comet to burst onto the celestial scene in our lifetime.

Several prophecies have foretold of the appearance of the Blue Sun in the Heavens. There are various interpretations of just what this will mean, but the underlying message in all of the prophecies is that the Blue Sun will herald a New Beginning for Planet Earth and all her Life.

One prophecy indicates that the appearance of the Blue Sun will be a sign of the return of Christ Consciousness to the physical plane of Earth. It will indicate the reunification of the physical with the Divine. It is said that through an expansion of Light created by the Blue Sun planetary, Galactic and Cosmic energies will realign, bringing about a long awaited Age of Enlightenment.

Those who study the Crop Circles appearing in many locations around the world, have indicated that the eruption of the Comet 17p/Holmes was revealed in several of the sacred geometric patterns of the Crop Circles that manifested in 2005.

The most persistent and verifiable prophecy is the one given in ancient times by the Hopi Elders. This prophecy has been passed on through oral tradition and reference to the ancient tablets. The Elders revealed that there would be nine Signs before the 5th World emerges. This will be a world of peace and abundance-a New Earth.

According to White Feather, a Hopi of the ancient Bear Clan, the prophecy goes like this:

“The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. The elders everywhere know this. 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, our lost White Brother from the Stars. But these men will not live like Pahana, they will be men who take land that is not theirs, and men who strike their enemies with thunder-guns.

“This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. In his 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 eyes-the coming of the white men’s longhorn cattle.

“This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron-the railroads.

“This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be crisscrossed by a giant spider’s web-power lines and telephone lines.

“This is the Sixth Sign: The land shall be crisscrossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the Sun-freeways with mirages caused by the Sun.

“This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it-oil spills in the oceans.

“This is the Eighth Sign: You will see many youth who wear their hair long like my people. They will come and join the tribal nations, to learn our ways and wisdom-the hippies in the 1960s and 1970s.

“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-the Blue Kachina Sun. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease.”

The Hopi prophecy goes on to say that the appearance of the Blue Kachina Star will initiate a time of great purification, a time during which the Earth will be purged and cleansed of negativity in preparation for her emergence into the 5th World-the 5th Dimension.

To many this may sound ominous, but the Beings of Light have assured us that we are the creators of circumstance not the victims of circumstance. We do not have to just stand by and wait for disaster to strike. In Truth, a prophecy from On High that contains the potential of a negative or destructive outcome is given to Humanity only if we have the ability to do something to avert that particular outcome. That is, in fact, the SOLE reason why such a prophecy is given to Humanity.

A FULFILLED NEGATIVE PROPHECY IS A FAILED PROPHECY. Any prophecy predicting a negative outcome is intended to show us the potential of what will occur if we continue our present course of direction. The Divine Intent of such a prophecy is to inform us and to inspire us to change our behavior and to alter the path we are following. If we do not take the information from the prophecy and do whatever we can to avert the destructive outcome, the prophecy will not have fulfilled its Divine Intent.

It is true that the Earth must be cleansed and purified in order for the New Earth to manifest in all of her infinite perfection, but the severity of that purging will depend on Humanity. If we reclaim our natural Birthright as stewards of the Earth and invoke the assistance of the Company of Heaven to help transmute and heal the atrocities we have inflicted on this blessed planet, the cleansing will occur gently with a minimal loss of Life. If we choose to ignore the Signs and continue our mindless pursuit for material gain at the expense of the Earth, the purification will be harsher with a greater potential for loss of Life.

This information is being given to Humanity at this time not to instill fear but to inspire us to remember our purpose and reason for being. We are being called to a higher service on behalf of Mother Earth and all Life evolving upon her. We are powerful beyond our knowing. Each and every one of us has been preparing for aeons of time to be the Hands of God in the physical plane during this Cosmic Moment. Please do not underestimate your ability to make a positive difference. Trust yourself! Listen to your heart, and you will know how you can be the most powerful force of Light possible.

On October 25, while the Blue Kachina Star was expanding in the Heavens, we traveled to a mystical sanctuary that is dedicated to the Angels and their perpetual service to Humanity. This incredibly holy place is located in Alet-les-Bains, Aude. The water here is believed to be magical, healing water.

When we arrived at the site called the Angel Sanctuary, we were greeted by Eugene and Lorrie, the father and mother of a wonderful Irish family whose members are the stewards of this portal of Light. Lorrie has communicated with Angels all her life. She and Eugene were guided a little over a year ago to bring their family from Ireland to this sacred place in France. The Angels asked them to open the Angel Sanctuary and Art Gallery which would magnetize people from all over the world.

Lorrie does Divinely inspired watercolor paintings of the Angels with her fingers. She is then given a beautiful message that is posted with each Angel. As we walked in silence through the Art Gallery-Sanctuary we were transported into a sacred meditation that transcended time and space.

In this exalted state of consciousness, our Father-Mother God, All That Is, revealed that this location is the portal through which the Permanent Seed Atom for the 5th-Dimensional Immortal Victorious Threefold Flame will enter the Heart of Mother Earth.

In order to grasp the magnitude of what that truly means, it is important to understand just what the Permanent Seed Atom is. The first thing that occurs when a soul is given permission to embody is that the I AM Presence selects the highest frequency of electronic Light substance the soul has earned since it was first breathed forth from the core of Creation. This pure Light is then placed in the mother’s womb and forms the Permanent Seed Atom in the heart for the incoming soul.

This Seed Atom creates the magnetic force that draws the unformed primal Light substance from the Heart of our Father-Mother God that will form the Immortal Victorious Threefold Flame in the incoming soul’s heart. Then the primal Light substance that will form the rest of the physical, etheric, mental and emotional bodies for the soul is magnetized around the Threefold Flame.

Our Father-Mother God revealed to us that while we were in the Angel Sanctuary, the Permanent Seed Atom for the 5th-Dimensional Threefold Flame in the Heart of Mother Earth was secured in the Sun of Even Pressure in the Center of the Earth. This powerful forcefield of Light is now in place to magnetize the 5th-Dimensional primal Light substance that will be used to create the Threefold Flame and the Immaculate Concept of the physical, etheric, mental and emotional strata for the New Earth.

This means that the patterns of perfection that were imprinted on the fluid field of unmanifest Divine Potential after the opening of Mother Earth’s Heart Meridian will now be birthed into the physical plane of Earth.

These two activities of Light, the purification of the negative patterns and human miscreations inflicted on Mother Earth and the manifestation of the patterns of perfection for the New Earth, will take place simultaneously. The length of time it will take for us to begin seeing tangible evidence of this transformation will be up to you and me and every other Lightworker on this planet. 2008 is a year of New Beginnings, and each and every one of us has the ability to make a significant difference in our individual lives and collectively for all Life on this blessed Earth.

As we move into this unprecedented year of opportunity, let’s take time to contemplate how we can add to the Light of the world, and how we can assist in transmuting and healing the negativity of the past in powerful and effective ways. The Company of Heaven is standing in readiness awaiting our beck and call. On behalf of Humanity and all Life evolving on this sweet Earth, do not let this opportunity pass you by.

As the Hopi Nation says,

WE ARE THE ONES WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR!

Hopi Stone Tablets

HOPI STONE TABLETS

There was the cycle of the mineral, the rock.
There was the cycle of the plant.
And now we are in the cycle of the animals coming to the
end of that and beginning the cycle of the human being.

When we get into the cycle of the human being
the highest and greatest powers that we have
will be released to us.

They will be released from that light or soul that we carry to the mind. But right now we’re coming to the end of the animal cycle and we have investigated ourselves and learned what it is to be like an animal on this earth.

At the beginning of this cycle of time, long ago, the Great Spirit came down and He made an appearance and He gathered the peoples of this earth together they say on an island which is now beneath the water and He said to the human beings, “I’m going to send you to four directions and over time I’m going to change you to four colors, but I’m going to give you some teachings and you will call these the Original Teachings and when you come back together with each other you will share these so that you can live and have peace on earth, and a great civilization will come about.”

And he said, “During the cycle of time I’m going to give each of you TWO STONE TABLETS. When I give you those stone tablets, don’t cast those upon the ground. If any of the brothers and sisters of the four directions and the four colors cast their tablets on the ground, not only, will human beings have a hard time, but almost the earth itself will die.”

And so he gave each of us a responsibility and we call that the Guardianship.

To the Indian people, the red people, he gave the Guardianship of the earth. We were to learn during this cycle of time the teachings of the earth, the plants that grow from the earth, the foods that you can eat, and the herbs that are healing so that when we came back together with the other brothers and sisters we could share this knowledge with them. Something good was to happen on the earth.

To the South, he gave the yellow race of people the Guardianship of the wind. They were to learn about the sky and breathing and how to take that within ourselves for spiritual advancement. They were to share that with is at this time.

To the West He gave the black race of people the Guardianship of the water. They were to learn the teachings of the water which is the chief of the elements, being the most humble and the most powerful.

To the North He gave the white race of people the Guardianship of the fire. If you look at the center of many of the things they do you will find the fire. They say a light bulb is the white man’s fire. If you look at the center of a car you will find a spark. If you look at the center of the airplane and the train you will find the fire. The fire consumes, and also moves. This is why it was the white brothers and sisters who began to move upon the face of the earth and reunite us as a human family.

And so a long time passed, and the Great Spirit gave each of the four races two stone tablets. Ours are kept at the Hopi Reservation in Arizona at Four Corners Area on 3rd Mesa.

I talked to people from the black race and their stone tablets are at the foot of Mount Kenya. They are kept by the Kukuyu Tribe.

I once had the honor of presenting a sacred pipe at the Kukuyu Tribe carved from the red pipe stone of Mount Kenya. I was at an Indian spiritual gathering about 15 years ago. A medicine man from South Dakota put a beaded medicine wheel in the middle of the gathering. It had the four colors from the four directions; He asked the people, “Where is this from?” They said, “Probably Montana, or South Dakota, maybe Seskatchewan.” He said, “This is from Kenya.” It was beaded just like ours, with the same color.

The stone tablets of the yellow race of people are kept by the Tibetans, in Tibet. If you went straight through the Hopi Reservation to the other side of the world, you would come out in Tibet. The Tibetan word for “sun” is the Hopi word for “moon” and the Hopi word for “sun” is the Tibetan word for “moon”.

The guardians of the traditions of the people of Europe are the Swiss. In Switzerland, they still have a day when each family brings out its mask. They still know the colors of the families, they still know the symbols, some of them. I went to school with some people from Switzerland at the University of Washington and they shared this with me.

Each of these four peoples happen to be people that live in the mountains.

In 1976 America had its bicentennial celebrating 200 years of freedom. Some of the Native people thought this was significant and they carried a sacred pipe bundle from the West Coast to the East Coast of this land.

They said that the roads of this land should either go North-South or East-West. If they went North-South we would come together as brothers and sisters, but if they went East-West there would be destruction and almost the earth itself would have a hard time. So you all know the roads went East-West.

They said then things would be lost from the East to the West and from the South to the North and that they would come back again from the West to the East and from the North to the South.

So nine years ago in 1976 from the West to East Coast of this land, from San Francisco to Washington, D.C. people carried a sacred pipe bundle by hand, on foot. My aunt had dreamt 15 years ago that people that didn’t like them would throw rocks and bottles at that pipe bundle as they carried it across the land. And sure enough that came about. But, as was in my aunt’s dream, the rocks only came so close and then they dropped, and nothing touched it.

They said a spiritual fire would be lit in the North and would come down the Northwest Coast of this land. When it gets to the Puget Sound, it would go inland. I think this, nine years later, is the gathering in the North, myself. That’s why I came here. This is it. We have the capacity to start the spiritual fire now, here. The old people long ago saw it and foretold it and I’m going to come to that.

So we went through this cycle of time and each of the four races went to their directions and they learned their teachings.

We were given a sacred handshake to show when we came back together as brothers and sisters that we still remembered the teachings. It was indicated on the stone tablets that the Hopis had that the first brothers and sisters that would come back to them would come as turtles across the land. They would be human beings, but they would come as turtles.

So when the time came close the Hopis were at a special village to welcome the turtles that would come across the land and they got up in the morning and looked out at the sunrise. They looked out across the desert and they saw the Spanish Conquistadores coming, covered in armour, like turtles across the land. So this was them. So they went out to the Spanish man and they extended their hand hoping for the handshake but into the hand the Spanish man dropped a trinket.

And so word spread throughout North America that there was going to be a hard time, that maybe some of the brothers and sisters had forgotten the sacredness of all things and all the human beings were going to suffer for this on the earth.

So tribes began to send people to the mounds to have missions to try to figure out how they could survive. At that time there were 100,000 cities in the Mississippi Valley alone, called the mound civilization: cities built on great mounds. Those mounds are still there. If you ever go out to Ohio or the Mississippi Valley, they’re tourist attractions now. There was 100,000 cities of Native people and they were wondering how they could survive.

They began to try to learn to live off the land because they knew a hard time was going to come. They began to send people to have visions to see how we could survive this time.

People came on the east coast and they went across this land to the east and they were told in the prophecies that we should try to remind all the people that would come here of the sacredness of all things. If we could do that, then there would be peace on earth. But if we did not do that, when the roads went clear from east to west, and when the other races and colors of the Earth had walked clear across this land, if by that time we had not come together as a human family, the Great Spirit would grab the earth with his hand and shake it.

And so if you read the treaty negotiations from Red Jacket of the Six Nations on the east coast of this land clear to Chief Joseph and Chief Seattle on the west coast of this land, they all said the same thing. Chief Joseph said, “I accord you the right, and I hope you accord me the right, to live in this land.” Always we were trying to live together. But instead of living together, you all know there was separation, there was segregation. They separated the races: they separated the Indians, and they separated the blacks.

So when they got to the west coast of this land the elders that were made aware of these prophecies said they would then begin to build a black ribbon. And on this black ribbon there would move a bug. And when you begin to see this bug moving on the land, that was the sign for the First Shaking of the Earth.

The First Shaking of the Earth would be so violent that this bug would be shaken off the earth into the air and it would begin to move and fly in the air. And by the end of this shaking this bug will be in the air around the world. Behind it would be a trail of dirt and eventually the whole sky of the entire earth would become dirty from these trails of dirt, and this would cause many diseases that would get more and more complicated. So the bug moving on the land, of course it’s easy to see now.

In 1908 the Model-T Ford was mass produced for the first time. So the elders knew the First Shaking of the Earth was about to come about – that’s the First World War. In the First World War the airplane came into wide usage for the first time. That was that bug moving into the sky. And so they knew something very important would happen.

There would be an attempt to make peace on earth on the west coast of this land and so the elders began to watch for this. They began to hear that there was going to be a League of Nations in San Francisco so the elders gathered in Arizona around 1920 or so and they wrote a letter to Woodrow Wilson. They asked if the Indian people could be included in the League of Nations.

At that time the United States Supreme Court had held that a reservation is a separate and semi-sovereign nation, not a part of the United States but protected by it. This became a concern because people didn’t want the reservations to become more and more separate. They didn’t want them to be considered nations. So they did not write back and the Native people were left out of the League of Nations, so that circle was incomplete.

In the League of Nations circle there was a southern door, the yellow people; there was a western door, the black people; there was a northern door, the white people; but the eastern door was not attended. The elders knew that peace would not come on the earth until the circle of humanity is complete, until all the four colors sat in the circle and shared their teachings, then peace would come on earth.

So they knew things would happen. Things would speed up a little bit. There would be a cobweb built around the earth, and people would talk across this cobweb. When this talking cobweb, the telephone, was built around the earth, a sign of life would appear in the east, but it would tilt and bring death. It would come with the sun.

But the sun itself would rise one day not in the east but in the west. So the elders said when you see the sun rising in the east and you see the sign of life reversed and tilted in the east, you know that the Great Death is to come upon the earth, and now the Great Spirit will grab the earth again in His hand and shake it and this shaking will be worse than the first.

So the sign of life reversed and tilted, we call that the Swastika, and the rising sun in the east was the rising sun of Japan. These two symbols are carved in stone in Arizona. When the elders saw these two flags, these were the signs that the earth was to be shaken again.

The worse misuse of the Guardianship of the fire is called the “gourd of ashes”. They said the gourd of ashes will fall from the air. It will make the people like blades of grass in the prairie fire and things will not grow for many seasons. I saw on television not too long ago that they were talking about the atomic bomb, the gourd of ashes. They said it was the best-kept secret in the history of the United States. The elders wanted to speak about it in 1920.

They would have spoken of it and foretold it’s coming if they could have entered into the League of Nations.

The elders tried to contact President Roosevelt and ask him not to use the gourd of ashes because it would have a great effect on the earth and eventually cause even greater destruction and a the Third Shaking of the Earth, the Third World War. I’ll get to that in a few minutes.

So they knew after the Second Shaking of the Earth when they saw the gourd of ashes fall from the sky then there would be an attempt to make peace on the other side of this land. And because the peace attempt on the west coast had failed, they would build a special house on the east coast of this Turtle Island, and all the nations and peoples of the earth would come to this house and it would be called the House of Mica and it would shine like the mica on the desert shines.

So the elders began to see they were building the United Nations made out of glass that reflects like the mica on the desert so they knew this was the House of Mica and all the peoples of the earth should go to it. So they met and talked about this. They said that in the 1920’s they had written and they had not been responded to, so they said this time we better go to the front door of the House of Mica because things might get a lot worse.

So elders representing a number of tribes I believe drove to New York City. When the United Nations opened they went to the front door of the House of Mica and they said these words:

“We represent the indigenous people of North America and we wish to address the nations of the Earth. We’re going to give you four days to consider whether or not we will be allowed to speak.”

They retreated to one of the Six Nations Reserves in New York State. The Six Nations Reserves are keepers of the Great Law of Peace of the prophet that appeared here in North America, Dagonnorida. And this Law of Peace is still recited, it takes four days between sunrise and noon. Each year an Indian, by memory, must recite it about this time of year.

Four days later they came back and I believe the nations of the earth heard that the Indians had come to the door. And they voted to let the Indians in. They wanted to hear what they had to say. But the United States is one of five nations of the United Nations with a veto power and still they were concerned because this time the Native sovereignty was even stronger. And I believe they vetoed the entrance of the Native people.

So then they knew other things would happen on the Earth, and the United Nations would not bring peace on earth but there would be continuing and deepening confusion. And that the little wars would get worse. So they retreated to the Six Nations Reserve and they talked about this and they said the time is really getting close now, 1949.

They said, “We’re going to divide the United States into four sections and each year we’re going to have a gathering. We’re going to call these the ‘White of Peace Gatherings’.” They began to have these around 1950. And they authorized certain men to speak in English for the first time about these prophecies.

One that I used to listen to many times, over and over, was Thomas Benyaka. He is a Hopi man. I believe he is still living. He was authorized to speak in English about what was on the stone tablets and he has dedicated his lifetime to doing this. And they began to tell us at these gatherings, they said “In your lifetime you’re going to see things happen.”

It was strange when they said it in the 1950’s and 1960’s but now it seems very clear. But then it was unusual. They said, “You’re going to see a time in your life when men are going to become women. The Great Spirit is going to make a man on the earth. He made him a man but this man is going to say, “I know more than the Great Spirit. I’m going to change myself to be a woman:” And they will even nurse children. The Great Spirit is going to make the woman on the earth. She’s going to say, “I know more than the Great Spirit. I want to be a man. And she will be physically a man.”

They said “You’re going to see a time in your lifetime when the human beings are going to find the blueprint that makes us.” They call that now, DNA, deoxyribonucleic acid. They said, “They re going to cut this blueprint.” They call that now, genetic splicing.

And they said, “They’re going to make new animals upon the earth, and they’re going to think these are going to help us. And it’s going to seem like they do help us. But maybe the grandchildren and greatgrandchildren are going to suffer.”

They are making new animals. The elders talked about this. They said, “You will see new animals, and even the old animals will come back, animals that people thought had disappeared. They will find them here and there. They’ll begin to reappear.”

They said (and I know many of you are from tribes that also have this prophecy, “You’re going to see a time when the eagle will fly its highest in the night and it will land upon the moon.” Some tribes say the eagle will circle the moon. Some tribes say the eagle will fly it’s highest in the night. “And at that time,” they say, “Many of the Native people will be sleeping,” which symbolically means they have lost their teachings. There are some tribes that say it will be as if they are frozen: they’ve been through the long winter.

But they say, “When the eagle flies it’s highest in the night, that will be the first light of a new day. That will be the first thawing of spring.” Of course, at the first light of a new day, if you’ve stayed up all night, you notice it’s really dark. And the first light, you want to see it, but you can’t. It sneaks up on you. You want to see it change but it’s dark and then pretty soon it’s getting light before you know it.

We’re at that time now. The Eagle has landed on the moon, 1969. When that spaceship landed they sent back the message, “The Eagle has landed.” Traditionally, Native people from clear up in the Inuit region, they have shared with us this prophecy, clear down to the Quechuas in South America. They shared with us that they have this prophecy. When they heard those first words, “The Eagle has landed,” they knew that was the start of a new time and a new power for Native people. There was absolutely nothing strong before us now. We may do anything we wish.

In 1776 when the United States Government printed the dollar, in one claw [of the eagle], if you’ve ever noticed, there is an olive branch in this claw. They said that represented peace. The Indian elders shared with me in South Dakota that to them that represents the enslavement of black people.

In the prophecies of the Six Nations people they say there will be two great uprisings by black people to free themselves. We’ve seen one about 1964. There will be a second, more violent one to come. I’ll get back to what that means in a minute. In the other claw is 13 arrows. The founding fathers of the United States said that represents the 13 States. But the elders say that represents the enslavement of the Native people.

When the Eagle landed on the moon, they decided to print a special silver dollar to commemorate that. I don’t know how many of you noticed it. The original design showed the spaceship landing on the moon but at the last minute it was changed to an actual eagle. And in the eagle’s claws is the olive branch, but the arrows are gone. The elders said, “That’s our prophecy, we have been released.”

There was one more uprising coming for the black race of people and then they will be released and this is also going to have an effect on Native people, a good effect. There’s a whole new set of prophecies from the Iroquois people about that and I won’t have time to go into that this morning.

But we’re in that time now. We’re between the first light of a new day and the sunrise. The sunrise is about to come and when it comes up everyone is going to see it. But you know how it is in the village there’s a few people that get up early, and there are some that sleep until noon. I’m probably one of those that sleeps until noon. They said when that Eagle lands on the moon, the powers will begin to come back to us.

Within seven days of the time the Eagle landed on the moon, the Freedom of Indian Religion Act was introduced into the United States Congress. The legislation was introduced in 1969, less than seven days after the Eagle landed on the moon. Eventually it was passed in November of 1978, signed by President Carter. These are the physical manifestations of the spiritual prophecies that we have.

So he said at this time you’re going to see that things will speed up, that people on the earth will move faster and faster. Grandchildren will not have time for grandparents. Parents will not have time for children. It will seem like time is going faster and faster. The elders advised us that as things speed up, you yourself should slow down. The faster things go, the slower you go. Because there’s going to come a time when the earth is going to be shaken a third time.

The Great Spirit has been shaking the earth two times: the First and Second World Wars to remind us that we are a human family, to remind us that we should have greeted each other as brothers and sisters. We had a chance after each shaking to come together in a circle that would have brought peace on earth, but we missed that.

Tonight they were talking on the news about the sign for the Third Shaking of the Earth. I heard it while sitting in the airport after I missed my plane. They said they’re going to build what the elders called the “house in the sky”.

In the 1950’s they talked about this: they will build a house and throw it in the sky. When you see people living in the sky on a permanent basis, you will know the Great Spirit is about to grab the earth, this time not with one hand, but with both hands.

Many of you of Native background may have heard “the spirits will warn you twice, but the third time you stand alone.” We’ve had two warnings, the first two World Wars, but now we stand alone in the third one. As it says in the Baha’i Writings, there will be no-one protected. When this house is in the sky, the Great Spirit is going to shake the Earth a third time and whoever dropped that gourd of ashes, upon them it is going to drop.

They say at that time there will be villages in this land so great that when you stand in the villages you will not be able to see out, and in the prophecies these are called “villages of stone”, or “prairies of stone”. And they said the stone will grow up from the ground and you will not be able to see beyond the village. At the center of each and every one of these villages will be Native people, and they will walk as “hollow” shells upon a “prairie of stone”. They said “hollow shells” which means they will have lost any of their traditional understandings; they will be empty within.

They said after the Eagle lands on the moon some of these people will begin to leave these “prairies of stone” and come home and take up some of the old ways and begin to make themselves reborn, because it’s a new day. But many will not. And they said there’s going to come a time when in the morning the sun is going to rise and this village of stone will be there, and in the evening there would just be steam coming from the ground. They will be as steam. And in the center of many of those villages of stone when they turn to steam, the Native people will turn to steam also because they never woke up and left the village.
