Hopi prophecies

Before the Europeans discovered and colonised the continents of America, the land was pretty well occupied by its native peoples, whose histories are now almost forgotten in preference to the latter histories after the colonisation. How the native tribes were decimated by the illnesses brought by the foreigners, and the changes in land occupation and allotments, is the disgrace of heritage that accompanies the European takeover of the continents. One of the native tribes of several, who have survived with their rich cultural identity are the Hopi tribe. Beginning from the 1970s, the elders of the Hopi began to open out to the rest of the world regarding the lessons the world ought to consider from their antique culture and knowledge of the world, and in particular the continents of Americas, which they call Turtle Island. The Hopi explain that their name means the people of peace, as opposed to their warring neighbours and people who violate the earth. Their culture is deeply rooted in the nurturing and preservation of nature. The essence of their warnings hence relate to the reverberations of the great devastation of nature, when humanity disregards nature and supplants it with artificiality. And they have a clearly structured prophecy which warns of the outcome of the latter times. One such narrative has been related as follows:

After the great flood, the tribes of earth who were saved from the deluge made sacred covenant to abide by the ways of the Great Spirit and never to depart from them. The Great Spirit inscribed his teachings, prophecies and warnings on Tiponi (sacred stone tablets), which he gave to each one of the four different racial groups. The Great Spirit also tested the ancestors by biding them choose from a sample of corn of different colours and sizes which was to be their staple food in this world, whereupon it was the Hopi who choose wisest, by choosing last, and the smallest ear of corn. The smallest was the most compact where the larger ones were symbols for different seeds of diverse plants, which the other three races had opted. Hence it was to the Hopi who the Great Spirit entrusted the Tiponi of power and authority over all land and life, as the guardians of life on earth, until when the Great Spirit should return.

The Hopi ancestor, great chieffain of the Bow clan after leading the new people into the new lands, defaulted into evil ways, and was reprimanded by his two sons, who after their father’s death separated to different directions of the earth, as was directed by the Great Spirit, with each taking a set of the Tiponi. The elder brother of the shining light was told to go immediately to the east, toward the rising sun, and upon reaching his destination to start back immediately to look for his younger brother, who remained on Turtle Island.  His mission was to help his younger brother to bring about the Purification Day, at which time all evildoers would be punished or destroyed, after which real peace, brotherhood, and everlasting life would be established. The elder brother would restore all land to his younger brother, from whom the Evil one among the white men had taken it. The elder brother of the shining light also would come to look for the Tiponi tablets and fulfill the mission given him by the Great Spirit.

The younger brother was instructed to travel throughout the land and mark his footsteps as he went about. Both brothers were told that a great white star would appear in the sky; when that happened, all people would know that the elder brother had reached his destination. Thereupon all people were to settle wherever they happened to be at that time, there to remain until the elder brother returned. The Hopi settled in the area now known as Four Corners, where the state lines of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet. This area is the "heart" of Turtle Island (North America) and of Mother Earth, and it is the microcosmic image of the macrocosm of the entire planet. The Hopi have practised and preserved a rich cultural tradition which is based on respect for nature and the elements, and for the Great Spirit.

Their ancient prophecies foretold of the coming of the Europeans to America, and the nature in which they would engage with the Hopi, in whichever case the Hopi were advised to stick on with their traditions and not to foolishly convert to the ways of the Europeans. With the maturity of time, the elder brother was to return albeit he may have changed the colour of his skin, but that his hair would remain black.At his return, with the ability to read and write, the elder brother would thus have the ability to decipher the Tiponi, and the Tiponi he has would be compared to those kept by the Hopi, which being compared will illustrate the ancient brotherhood of the two. A season of judgement would follow with the elder brother assisting the younger to obtain justice against the numerous ills perpetrated against the natives of America, and against the land.

The return of the elder brother, also synonymous with the true white brother who wears a red cloak or a red cap, similar to the pattern on the back of a horned toad and who professes no other religion but his own, is to be preceded by two helpers, who commence the purification of the earth. The true white brother will be all-and come swiftly, taking over the continent in a day. His nature though is of war, as well as that of his predecessors, against the enemies of the ways of the Great Spirit.

If the purification through difficulty failed to teach humans their lesson, to return to the ways of the Great Spirit, then the earth will suffer the worse for it. But if enough of the Hopi, and their like minded brothers globally retained their ancient ways, then the probability of success in converting the world and people to the ways of the Great Spirit would be enhanced, with the end results that:

The True White Brother and his helpers would show the people of earth a great new life plan that will lead to everlasting life. The earth will become new and beautiful again, with an abundance of life and food. Those who are saved will share everything equally. All races will intermarry and speak one tongue and be a family.

The great expectation of the earth then according to the Hopi is the return of the older white brother, and his people, who should propagate a new way of knowledge towards the restitution of life on the earth. They have an elaborate prophecy of the signs which will precede the return of the true white brother, with his set of Tiponi and base of knowledge.

    1. First would be the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana, of men who take the land that was not theirs. And men who struck their enemies with thunder. From the original gunpowder and TNT explosions, the world now essentially is using thunder from the heavens in the launching of ballistic missiles and airborne warfare, of which the Europeans are at the helm of. The Europeans also globally were the most recent race to colonize others and take over their lands.
    2. The second sign was that their lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. It was the Europeans who brought the wheel and wagons to the Americas but as yet these were not filled with noises, as the modern automobile is.
    3. A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers, probably in reference to the white men’s cattle. Yet the stranger beast is the automobile, where the horns relate to its power.
    4. The land will be crossed by snakes of iron, in reference to the railway and the locomotives being the derivation of the destruction of the land, beginning with the overexploitation of resources in related mining, as well as in the infrastructural demand of railway lines. Snakes of iron also refer highways of devastation, as iron is the choice metal in destruction.
    5. The Fifth Sign was that the land shall be criss-crossed by a giant spider’s web. Both the spider and its web are metaphor for entrapment. Hence the land would be full of deceitful dealings, as opposed to the ancient times when people stood by their word and regarded integrity. The web of the spider precisely represents the modern social and economical set up, where every aspect of life is a snare for one soul or the other by the upper echelons of society, the spider governance structure.
    6. The land shall be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun. As opposed to the ancient times when the value of water was appreciated for its real value, the modern infrastructure of road-networks would only be described as rivers of stone, whose value to the natural way of life, just as a river of stone is illogical. Roads are directly a major contributor to climate change, the heat the asphalt absorbs and retains, making the earth and ground heat up as pictures in the sun.
    7. You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it. The sea, being full of water is the espousal of abundance of life. But when the sea turns black, changing from its colour of life refers to the agency of death resulting from the sea, as opposed to life. Hence the birthing of destructive hurricanes and weather patterns from the sea is encapsulated within this prophecy. The pollution of the environment and the sea itself by oil-spillage notwithstanding.
    8. 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. When the global crisis is thus manifesting, there would naturally come about the quest to solutions, which indeed most of the world are questing for.
    9. 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 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. Although most of the authorities from the Hopi relate the dwelling places in the skies to the international space station and orbiting satellites, perhaps a rather more simplistic explanation has indeed been the fulfillment of the prophecy. Skyscrapers in the days that such a prophecy was made were non-existent, and these, to the antique position of observation, are nothing more but dwelling places in the sky. The most notable one which may be associated to this prophecy is the World trade Centre towers and the infamy of the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001. From the incidence of 911, the USA of the white man commenced a global campaign against terrorism and in particular against the ancient lands of Mesopotamia-Babylon Egypt and Persia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya and Iran, through direct confrontation as well as incitements (the Arab spring) which campaigns seemingly opened a can of warms whose lid got misplaced. The events which were precursor to 911 may however perhaps be related to the Embassy bombings in East Africa, and Kenya in particular, which had happened on August 8th 1997. Should this have been the timeframe of this particular prophecy, then the significant enumerations of time such as the 4th, 7th, 10th, 14th 21st years since may be discerned as bearing pivotal events in world destiny. For it was in the 4th year that the 911 transpired and commenced the war against Iraq till the 7th year. The 10th year was 2007, and had Kenya undergo its worst humanitarian and political crisis since the departure of the colonialist. The 14th year was the inception of the Arab spring, of which was instigated the overthrow of the republics of many Arab countries, inclusive of Egypt, Libya, Iraq, Tunisia, Yemen, Afghanistan etc. The war in Syria which spreads out to Turkey, Jordan, Israel and Egypt and presently pits the great nuclear powers of the world at opposite divides was also from this stage of the timeline. Hence the 21st year of the reckoning is of significance.

The Blue star Kachina prophecy is profound in itself, although usually related to the ninth sign prophecy. A Kachina is a messenger from the heavens, or a star, equitable to an angelic messenger. The time of purification precedes the coming of the age of enlightenment as in the metaphor of the return of the true white brother. The return of the elder brother essentially is a description of the reemergence of the ancient knowledge of life, being once more embraced and regarded by the latter generations of earth, for the welfare and healing of the planet. This is the great ensign;

When the Saquasohuh [Blue Star] Kachina dances in the plaza and removes his mask before uninitiated children. It will mark the end of all Hopi ceremonies for a while, when there will be neither ceremonies nor faith. Then Oraibi will be rejuvenated with its faith and ceremonies, marking the start of a new cycle of Hopi Life.

Pundits to the prophecies of the Hopi, including their own elders hence have looked up into the heavens constantly for the sign of this Kachina sign of the Blue star. The key to this prophecy however could relate to the identity of the plaza, at which this Kachina dances. That the present world is indeed as uninitiated children of the traditions and knowledge of our ancestors is pretty clear. If the name Hopi strictly is applied to its meaning for people of peace, then the momentary lapse in all Hopi ceremonies, and faith,regards a period within which the global peace endeavours would be unrealized. A particular incidence, related to the plaza, and as a messenger from the heavens in the form of a star symbol, would mark the beginning of an interlude upon the earth when men would not regard the pursuits of peace, nor illustrate knowledge of the divine.

As much as the Hopi prophecies describe their other brotherly relations to the elder brother, whose identity may not be clear, but certainly whose teachings and traditions reflect with those of the Hopi, as guardians of the teachings and mysteries of life for the earth, the Agîkûyû traditions and faith circumspectly parallel the ways of the Hopi. The further parallel is in the nature of treatment that these too suffered under the evil Pahana, who took the land that is not theirs and destroyed their enemies by thunder. The prophecies of both nations as regarding the railway are strictly the same, the iron snake of destruction. The plaza spoken of in the prophecy of the Hopi may thus be taken to refer to the plaza of origins, the land of the source of the primordial mystical waters of infinity, the land of Gîkûyû. The recent generations of the Agîkûyû, and the world at large, since the 1930s, have remained uninitiated in the ancient mysteries, ever since the deferment of the ituîka ceremony of 1925. The suspension of this ceremony at the behest of the colonial administration who illegalised all processes associated to this initiation and effectively erased the culture of the Agîkûyû, has rendered those who remain in the world as uninitiated children.

The fall of a the Thika meteorite, on the 16th July 2011 at teh region of Tala in Kenya was as such not recognised to be of any significance.That it fell at the plaza, the central point of the world was of no consequence to uninitiated ignorant world, who long forgot about the world tree and its central location plaza. The location of this incidence was also the shrine of the fourteen falls, next to the Kîrîma-Bogo-mountain of God; Oldoinyo Sabuk-Mountain of the path of existence, the esteemed mountain. The region is also known as Tara which is for star or mountain. The double of this region in the heavens is the blue tinged double star Mimosa, or Beta Crux. Hence the prophecy is observed here to have been fulfilled to the letter, in that the remnants of the meteorite were found to have consisted of fourteen pieces, which cumulatively weighed in at 14.2 kilograms. The hint of the fourteen relate to the fourteen stages of purification, where the fourteenth stage is the final irreversible fulfilment. Thus the number and the period involved was as an announcement to the earth that the age of purification has commenced. According to the Hopi, the purification was to be in blood-shed and when the pursuit of peace would be momentarily unattainable, as well as that of intelligence of faith. After the season, the Oraibi, significant to the return of wisdom of creation would manifest and restore the ceremonies of the Hopi, and faith, which are reminiscent of the intelligence and wisdom relevant to nurturing creation, the wisdom for optimal life.
