The end of all Hopi ceremonialism will come when a "Kachina"
removes his mask during a dance in the plaza before uninitiated
children [the general public]. For a while there will be no more
ceremonies, no more faith. Then Oraibi will be rejuvenated with
its faith and ceremonies, marking the start of a new cycle of
World War III will be started by those peoples who first
revealed the light (the divine wisdom or intelligence) in the
other old countries (India, China, Islamic Nations, Africa.)
The United States will be destroyed, land and people, by
atomic bombs and radioactivity. Only the Hopis and their homeland
will be preserved as an oasis to which refugees will flee. Bomb
shelters are a fallacy. "It is only materialistic people who seek
to make shelters. Those who are at peace in their hearts already
are in the great shelter of life. There is no shelter for evil.
Those who take no part in the making of world division by
ideology are ready to resume life in another world, be they
Black, White, Red, or Yellow race. They are all one, brothers."
The war will be "a spiritual conflict with material matters.
Material matters will be destroyed by spiritual beings who will
remain to create one world and one nation under one power, that
of the Creator."
That time is not far off. It will come when the Saquasohuh
(Blue Star) Kachina dances in the plaza and removes his mask. He
represents a blue star, far off and yet invisible, which will
make its appearance soon. The time is foretold by a song sung
during the Wuwuchim ceremony. It was sung in 1914 just before
World War I, and again in 1940 before World War II, describing
the disunity, corruption, and hatred contaminating Hopi rituals,
which were followed by the same evils spreading over the world.
This same song was sung in 1961 during the Wuwuchim ceremony.
The Emergence to the future Fifth World has begun. It is
being made by the humble people of little nations, tribes, and
racial minorities. "You can read this in the earth itself. Plant
forms from previous worlds are beginning to spring up as seeds
[as described in SW-II, Effects and Coming Events # 1]. This
could start a new study of botany if people were wise enough
to read them. The same kinds of seeds are being planted in the
sky as stars. The same kinds of seeds are being planted in our
hearts. All these are the same, depending how you look at them.
That is what makes the Emergence to the next, Fifth World.
"These comprise the nine most important prophecies of the
Hopis, connected with the creation of the nine worlds: the three
previous worlds on which we lived, the present Fourth World, the
three future worlds we have yet to experience, and the world of
Taiowa, the Creator, and his nephew, Sotuknang."
The Hopi and others who were saved from the Great Flood made
a sacred covenant with the Great Spirit never to turn away from
him. He made a set of sacred stone tablets, called Tiponi, into
which he breathed his teachings, prophecies, and warnings.
Before the Great Spirit
hid himself again, he placed before the leaders of the four
different racial groups four different colors and sizes of corn;
each was to choose which would be their food in this world. The
Hopi waited until last and picked the smallest ear of corn. At
this, the Great Spirit said:
"It is well done. You have obtained the real corn, for
all the others are imitations in which are hidden seeds of
different plants. You have shown me your intelligence; for
this reason I will place in your hands these sacred stone
tablets, Tiponi, symbol of power and authority over all land
and life to guard, protect, and hold in trust for me until I
shall return to you in a later day, for I am the First and I am the Last."
The Great Chieftain of the Bow Clan led the faithful ones to
this new land, but he fell into evil ways. His two sons scolded
him for his mistake, and after he died they assumed the
responsibilities of leadership. Each brother was given a set of
Tiponi, and both were instructed to carry them to a place to
which the Great Spirit directed them. 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 [the Continental United States of America]. 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. They lived in humble simplicity and the land produced
abundant crops. This area is the "heart" of Turtle Island [the
U.S.] and of Mother Earth, and it is the microcosmic image of the
macrocosm of the entire planet. Each Hopi clan perpetuates a
unique ceremony, and the ceremonies together maintain the balance
of natural forces of sunlight, rain and winds, and reaffirm the
Hopi respect for all life and trust in the Great Spirit.
The Hopi were told that after a time White Men would come
and take their land and try to lead the Hopi into evil ways. But
in spite of all the pressures against them, the Hopi were told
they must hold to their ancient religion and their land, though
always without violence. If they succeeded, they were promised
that their people and their land would be a center from which the
True Spirit would be reawakened.
It is said that after many years the elder brother
might change the color of his skin, but his hair
will remain black. He will have the ability to write, and he will
be the only person able to read the Tiponi. When he returns to
find his younger brother, the Tiponi will be placed side by side
to show all the world that they are true brothers. Then great
judgment will take place, for the elder will help the younger
brother to obtain real justice for all Indian brothers who have
been cruelly mistreated by the white man since he came to Turtle
The transformed elder brother, the
True White Brother, will wear a red cloak or a red cap, similar
to the pattern on the back of a horned toad. He will bring no
religion but his own, and will bring with him the Tiponi tablets.
He will be all-powerful; none will be able to stand against him.
He will come swiftly, and in one day gain control of this entire
continent. It is said, "If he comes from the East, the
destruction will not be so bad. But if he comes from the West, do
not get up on your housetops to see because he will have no
The True White Brother will bring with him two great,
intelligent and powerful helpers, one of whom will have a sign of
a swastika (a masculine symbol of purity), and the sign of the
sun. The second great helper will have the sign of a celtic cross
with red lines (representing female life blood) between the arms
of the cross.
When the Great Purification is near, these helpers will
shake the earth first for a short time in preparation. After they
shake the earth two times more, they will be joined by the True
White Brother, who will become one with them and bring the
Purification Day to the world. All three will help the "younger
brother" (the Hopi and other pure-hearted people) to make a
better world. In the prophecies, the two helpers are designated
by the Hopi word for "population," as if they were large groups
The Hopi were warned that if these three great beings
failed, terrible evil would befall the world and great numbers of
people would be killed. However, it was said that they would
succeed if enough Hopi remained true to the ancient spirit of
their people. The True White Brother and
his helpers will 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.
Hopi prophecy states that World War III will be started by
the people who first received the Light -- China, Palestine,
India and Africa. When the war comes, the United States will be
destroyed by "gourds of ashes" which will fall to the ground,
boiling the rivers and burning the earth, where no grass will
grow for many years, and causing a disease that no medicine can
cure. This can only mean nuclear or atomic bombs; no other weapon
causes such effects. Bomb shelters will be useless, for "Those
who are at peace in their hearts already are in the Great Shelter
of Life. There is no shelter for evil. When the Saquahuh (blue
Star) Kachina dances in the plaza and removes his mask, the time
of the great trial will be here." The Hopi believe that only they
will be saved.
The Hopi also have prophesied that "Turtle Island could turn
over two or three times and the oceans could join hands and meet
the sky." This seems to be a prophecy of a "pole shift" -- a
flipping, of the planet on its axis. The Hopi call this imminent
condition -- and that of society today -- "Koyaanisqatsi", which
means "world out of balance...a state of life that calls for
another way. "
The following extraordinary Hopi prophecy was first
published in a mimeographed manuscript that circulated among
several Methodist and Presbyterian churches in 1959. Some of the
prophecies were published in 1963 by Frank Waters in The Book of
the Hopi. The account begins by describing how, while driving
along a desert highway one hot day in the summer of 1958, a
minister named David Young stopped to offer a ride to an Indian
elder, who accepted with a nod. After riding in silence for
several minutes, the Indian said:
"I am White Feather, a Hopi of the ancient Bear Clan. In my
long life I have traveled through this land, seeking out my
brothers, and learning from them many things full of wisdom.
I have followed the sacred paths of my people, who inhabit the
forests and many lakes in the east, the land of ice and long
nights in the north, and the places of holy altars of stone built
many years ago by my brothers' fathers in the south. From all
these I have heard the stories of the past, and the prophecies of
the future. Today, many of the prophecies have turned to stories,
and few are left -- the past grows longer, and the future grows
"And now White Feather is dying. His sons have all joined
his ancestors, and soon he too shall be with them. But there is
no one left, no one to recite and pass on the ancient wisdom. My
people have tired of the old ways -- the great ceremonies that
tell of our origins, of our emergence into the Fourth World, are
almost all abandoned, forgotten, yet even this has been foretold.
The time grows short.
"My people await Pahana, the lost White Brother, [from the
stars] as do all our brothers in the land. He will not be like
the white men we know now, who are cruel and greedy. we were told
of their coming long ago. But still we await Pahana.
"He will bring with him the symbols, and the missing piece
of that sacred tablet now kept by the elders, given to him when
he left, that shall identify him as our True White Brother.
"The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will
begin. This the elders everywhere know. 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, but not living like Pahana
men who took the land that was not theirs. And men who
struck their enemies with thunder.
"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
"This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by
snakes of iron.
"This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be criss-crossed by
a giant spider's web.
"This is the Sixth sign: The land shall be criss-crossed
with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun.
"This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning
black, and many living things dying because of it.
"This 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.
"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. Many of my people, understanding the
prophecies, shall be safe. Those who stay and live in the places
of my people also shall be safe. Then there will be much to
rebuild. And soon -- very soon afterward -- Pahana will return.
He shall bring with him the dawn of the Fifth
World. He shall plant the seeds of his wisdom in their hearts.
Even now the seeds are being planted. These shall smooth the way
to the Emergence into the Fifth World.
"But White Feather shall not see it. I am old and dying. You
-- perhaps will see it. In time, in time..."
The old Indian fell silent. They had arrived at his
destination, and Reverend David Young stopped to let him out of
the car. They never met again. Reverend Young died in 1976, so he
did not live to see the further fulfillment of this remarkable
The signs are interpreted as follows: The First Sign is of
guns. The Second Sign is of the pioneers' covered wagons. The
Third Sign is of longhorn cattle. The Fourth Sign describes the
railroad tracks. The Fifth Sign is a clear image of our electric
power and telephone lines. The Sixth Sign describes concrete
highways and their mirage-producing effects. The Seventh Sign
foretells of oil spills in the ocean. The Eighth Sign clearly
indicates the "Hippy Movement" of the 1960s. The Ninth Sign was
the U.S. Space Station Skylab, which fell to Earth in 1979.
According to Australian eye-witnesses, it appeared to be burning
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
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
In 1959, a six-man delegation of traditional Hopi leaders
led by the late spiritual leader, Dan Katchongva, traveled to the
United Nations Building in New York to fulfill a sacred mission
in accordance with ancient Hopi instructions. Because of their
prophetic knowledge, the Hopi leaders felt it was time to go
east to the edge of their motherland, where "a house of mica"
[The United Nations building] would stand at this time, where
Great Leaders from many lands would be gathered to help any
people who are in trouble."
They were to go when the motherland of the Hopi and other
Indian brothers were about to be taken away from them and their
way of life was in danger of being completely destroyed by evil
ones among the White Men and by some other Indian brothers who
were influenced by the White Race. This is a clear and present
danger: the betrayal of Indian-U.S.A. treaties, land sales, and
coal and uranium mining are destroying the Hopi land and its
people -- and all other peoples and lands, in eventual effect...
According to prophecy, at least one, two or three leaders or
nations would hear and understand the Hopi warnings, as "It is
told that they too should know these ancient instructions". Upon
hearing the message of the Hopi, they would act immediately to
correct many wrongs being done to the chosen race -- the Red Man
who was granted permission to hold in trust all land and life
for the Great Spirit. This prophecy would seem to have failed.
Hopi prophecy also declares that the doors of the "Glass House"
would be closed to them. This was the case at first, though they
have delivered their message to the United Nations Assembly since
"When the Great Leaders in the Glass House refuse to open
the door to you when you stand before it that day, [Repeated,
again in 1993] do not be discouraged or turn about on the path
you walk, but take courage, determination, and be of great
rejoicing in your hearts, for on that day the White Race who are
on your land with you have cut themselves from you and thereon
lead themselves to the Greatest Punishment at the Day of
Purification. Many shall be destroyed for their sins and evil
ways. The Great Spirit has decreed it and no one can stop it,
change it, or add anything to it. It shall be fulfilled!"
On August 7, 1970, a spectacular UFO sighting was witnessed
by dozens of people and photographed by Chuck Roberts of the
Prescott (Arizona)"Courier". This sighting occurred after a "UFO
calling" by Paul Solem and several Hopi Indians. This sighting
was interpreted by some Hopis as being a partial fulfillment of a
certain Hopi prophecy given by the Great Spirit Maasau and
inscribed on Second Mesa, warning of the coming of Purification
Day, when the true Hopi will be flown to other planets in "ships
Hopi prophecy also tells us that there will be a mass
migration of Indians northward from Mexico and Central and South
America. The migration will be led by a 130-year old Indian named
Etchata Etchana. The movement will come after the huge fire and
explosion that will herald the advent of the True White Brother.
According to Hopi belief, the survivors of the Great Deluge
thousands of years ago split up into four groups that moved
north, south, east and west. Only one group completed their
journey -- to the North Pole and back -- under the guidance of a
brilliant "star" in which the Great Spirit Maasau
traveled. When he landed, he drew a petroglyph on Second Mesa,
showing a maiden (with the traditional "butterfly" hair
arrangement) riding in a wingless, dome-shaped craft. The
petroglyph signified the coming Day of Purification when the true
Hopi will fly to other planets in "ships without wings."
The prophecy also warns that there will be three divisions
among the Hopi The first division was in 1906 between the
Traditionalists and the Modernists. The Traditionalists were
forced to leave Oraibi and move to Hotevilla. The second division
took place in the wake of the spectacular appearance of UFOs in
Near Oraibi, Arizona, there is a petroglyph known as
Prophecy Rock which symbolizes many Hopi prophecies. Its interpretation
The large human figure on the left is the Great Spirit. The
bow in his left hand represents his instructions to the Hopi to
lay down their weapons. The vertical line to the right of the
Great Spirit is a time scale in thousands of years. The point at
which the great Spirit touches the line is the time of his
The "life path" established by the Great Spirit divides into
the lower, narrow path of continuous Life in harmony with nature
and the wide upper road of white man's scientific achievements.
The bar between the paths, above the cross, is the coming of
white men; the Cross is that of Christianity. The circle below
the cross represents the continuous Path of Life.
The four small human figures on the upper road represent, on
one level, the past three worlds and the present; on another
level, the figures indicate that some of the Hopi will travel the
white man's path, having been seduced by its glamour.
The two circles on the lower Path of Life are the "great
shaking of the earth" (World Wars One and Two). The swastika in
the sun and the Celtic cross represent the two helpers of Pahana,
the True White Brother.
The short line that returns to the straight Path of Life is
the last chance for people to turn back to nature before the
upper road disintegrates and dissipates. The small circle above
the Path of Life, after the last chance, is the Great
Purification, after which corn will grow in abundance again when
the Great Spirit returns. And the Path of Life continues
The Hopi shield in the lower right corner symbolizes the
Earth and the Four-Corners area where the Hopi have been
reserved. The arms of the cross also represent the four
directions in which they migrated according to the instructions
of the Great Spirit.
The dots represent the four colors of Hopi corn, and the
four racial colors of humanity.
