"The time will come when from the earth will arise a
mystic fog which will dilute the minds and hearts of all people.
Their guidelines of wisdom and knowledge will falter, the
Great Laws of our Creator will dissolve in the minds of people.
Children will be out of control and will no longer obey the
leaders, immorality and the competitive war of greed will
the end is near, we will see a halo of mist around the heavenly
bodies. Four times it will appear around the sun as a warning
that we must reform, telling us that people of all color
must unite and arise for survival, and that we must uncover
the causes of our dilemmas. Unless man-made weapons are
used to strike first, peace will then come.
the time will come when we will experience late springs
and early frosts, this will be the sign of the returning
believe militarism is born out of injustice, poverty and
ignorance where absolute governments refuse to hear the
grievances of minorities. So the people resort to violence,
demonstrations and even terrorism when they see no other
way to be heard. What can we do when our world leaders and
the people are acting like fools in attempts to solve the
problems confronting us? Once again we will quote the prophecy
of our Elders. We hope it will interest you so that you
will be more aware of it because it has been happening for
to prophecy, the day will come when people in high places
will be hunted. This will get out of control. The hunting
will gather strength and spread. This situation might even
erupt on our land. Finally, this will lead us to the Biblical
version of Armageddon (the Hopi version is closely related).
A final decisive battle between good and evil. This will
occur under one God or Chief. The prophets say we will speak
one language and that this will happen in Hopiland, in the
village of Oraibi , where the new life plan will be drawn,
in the pattern and cycle of religion. Here also a final
decision will be made for the wicked. They will be beheaded
and speak no more. If this does not materialize there will
be a total destruction through the acts of man or nature.
Then new life will begin from a girl and a boy. This is
a frightening prophecy and will not be supported by many.
is in the prophecies of the Hopi that in a case like this
the Navajo may help our cause. Also the Bahannas or the
Paiute Tribe may help. We doubt that the U.S. Government
will easily concede our sovereignty.
are two water serpents, one at each pole with a warrior
sitting on his head and tail. These command nature to warn
us by her activities that time is getting short, and we
must correct ourselves. If we refuse to heed these warnings,
the warriors will let go of the serpents; they will rise
up, and all will perish.
are much concerned about the climate. No one seems to be
able to predict the weather accurately from day to day.
However, we know according to our time markers that it is
past due for certain seeds to be planted at their proper
time. In recent springs, we were reluctant to plant due
to the late snow and cold weather. Once more maybe our ancient
prophecy is right, that one day we will plant wearing finger
sacks (gloves) clearing away snow with our feet before planting.
The summers will become shorter for maturing the corn for
harvest. The result is anybody's guess.
question is, will this occur the world over? This would
depend on the geographical areas. In the regions with different
climates, things will happen in different ways. For instance,
tropical land could become a land of ice, and the Arctic
region could become tropical. This need not happen if we,
the people, get our leaders to do something about the harmful
things being done to the environment.
is said that, if the future generations find out that we
did nothing to preserve the good ways, they might throw
us from our houses into the streets. This suffering will
be of our own making. The lack of peace in our own spiritual
being could trigger the revolution. Our True White Brother
might come and find we have forsaken the sacred instructions.
Then he will whip us without mercy.
us take a look into the future through the eyes of our prophets.
Hopi were instructed to tell of the Great Purification just
ahead of a time when Humankind would once again become highly
civilized, tending to become careless and leading us to
self-destruction. They said that, along the way, the industrialized
world will have certain problems. People will be uncomfortable
because of the changing times, and they will have to make
adjustments to find new life styles.
nations will become careless in getting more the resources
out of the earth. Believing all these things will last forever,
soon natural resources will be depleted. Fuel shortages
will occur; industrial machinery will come to a standstill.
The machinery used for planting, harvesting and transport
will become useless. Supermarket shelves will become empty
of farm produce. The farmers and those who grow their own
food will not sell their produce. Money will become worthless.
The white man with all his intelligence and technology will
not be able to repair the damage. We will see extraordinary
events in Nature and Earth, including humans.
man looks upon old wisdom and knowledge as dead, useless
and no longer respected. Modern man depends on the money
system and no longer on Mother Earth for food. According
to prophecy when this happens Mother Earth will hide her
nourishment because of the view that ancient food is poor
man's food. When all food disappears, modern man will try
to correct his mistake, the conditions he caused upon the
earth through his inventions. He will try to achieve some
kind of method to heal the wound, but this will not be possible
when we reach the point of no return.
Hopi play a key role in the survival of the human race through
their vital communion with the unseen forces that hold nature
in balance. The pattern is simple: The whole world will
shake and turn red and turn against those who are hindering
prophecy is related to the Biblical version of that which
may yet come to pass. It goes on to say that common people
will become concerned and frustrated because of their hectic
world. They will be particularly against the bloodthirsty
policies and the deceitfulness of the world leaders. The
common people the world over will band together to fight
for world peace. They will realize that their leaders have
failed. People in high places will be hunted down like animals,
perhaps through terrorism. In turn leaders will retaliate
and begin hunting each other. This condition will gather
strength and spread far and wide. It will get out of control
the world over. Revolution could erupt on our land.
liberators will come in from the west with great force.
They will drop down from the sky like rain. They will have
no mercy. We must not get on the house tops to watch. They
will shake us by our ears, like children who have been bad.
This will be the final decisive battle between good and
evil. This battle will cleanse the heart of people and restore
our Mother Earth from illness, and the wicked will be gotten
rid of. "If this fails to materialize, our Great Creator
through nature will do the task according to their [sic]
plans. It could be total destruction in any form. Only brother
and sister will survive to begin a new way of life. This
prophecy is frightening and doubtful. Perhaps it is of no
value to most people.
a gourd full of ashes would be invented, which, if dropped
from the sky, would boil the oceans and burn the land causing
nothing to grow for many years. This would be the sign for
a certain Hopi to bring out the teachings in order to warn
the world that the third and final event would happen soon
and could bring an end to all life unless people correct
themselves and their leaders in time.
final stage, called The Great Day of Purification, has been
described as a Mystery Egg in which the forces of the Swastika
and the Sun plus a third force symbolized by the color red
culminate either in total rebirth or total annihilation;
we don't know which. But the choice is yours; war and natural
catastrophe may be involved. The degree of violence will
be determined by the degree of inequity caused among the
peoples of the world and in the balance of nature. In this
crisis rich and poor will be forced to struggle as equals
in order to survive.
reality that it will be very violent is now almost taken
for granted among Traditional Hopi, but man still may lessen
the violence by correcting his treatment of nature and fellow
man. Ancient, spiritually based communities, such as the
Hopi, must especially be preserved and not forced to abandon
their wise way of life and the natural resources they have
vowed to protect.
man-made system now destroying the Hopi is deeply involved
in similar violations throughout the world. The devastating
reversal predicted in the prophecies is part of the natural
order. If those who thrive from that system, its money and
its laws, can manage to stop destroying the Hopi then many
may be able to survive the Day of Purification and enter
a new age of peace. But if no one is left to continue the
Hopi way, the hope for such an age is in vain.
mankind has lost peace with one another through conflict
due to the new ways, the Great Spirit, the Great Creator,
has punished the people in many ways. Through all of this
there was always a small group who survived to keep the
original ways of life alive. This small group is comprised
of those who adhere to the laws of the Creator, who keep
the spiritual path open, out from the circle of evil. According
to our knowledge we are not quite out of the circle.
we enter the time of testing that only the Great Creator
can confirm. The alignment of the planets, we were so kindly
informed of by the star watchers has been awaited by the
Hopi. As the time nears, the predicted behavior of the people
accurately describes the behavior of people in the 1990's.
When the end is near, we will see a halo of mist around
the heavenly bodies. Four times it will appear around the
sun as a warning that we MUST reform.
minds will decrease, while the people of good hearts, who
live in harmony with the earth, will increase until the
earth is rid of evil. If the Hopi are right, this will be
accomplished and the earth will bloom again. The spiritual
door is open. Why not join the righteous people? The Horny
Toad Woman gave Massau'u a promise that she would help him
in time of need, saying she too had a metal helmet. After
the Hopi have fulfilled their pattern of life, Massau'u
will be the leader, but not before, for He is the First
and He shall be the Last."
prophecies are very similar to the Kogi prophecy and reminds
us to focus on the spiritual development and to be ready
for anything. For more Hopi related prophecy see Morganas
