One of the most powerful Prophecies held by a native people is that by the Hopis, or known as the Hopi Prophecy. In the graphic above, is a recreation of the drawing I made when I attended a special meeting in Los Angeles, in June of 1981, related to the forced removal of Native Americans from the Big Mountain area of Arizona (also shared in our Journeys book in Chapter 8).
Included in this section is information which discusses this prophecy from this meeting and also various other messages that have been posted on online services. I also heard that the Tibetan Budhists also have a similar prophecy, which was discussed when the Dali Lama met with the Hopi Elders a few years ago.

|Description of Hopi Prophecy Image|
The Top Line represents the path of Technology without any spirituality to balance it;
the bottom line represent a spiritual path.
There are three vertical lines, the first line is the beginning time of
the prophecy; the second vertical line
shows a time when mankind decides which path to follow, materialism or
spiritualism. I think I heard that the two circles on the bottom line
represented the first and second World Wars. The heavy dark vertical
line, at the end, is the decision time, which path to follow, which is
today. If the material path is followed, as represented by the top
horizontal line, the result is a very jagged line that will result
in destruction. If the lower spiritual path is followed, the result will
be peace and harmony.

Notes from Big Mountain Meeting
( June 26th, 1981, Los Angeles )
The purpose of this meeting was to educate people about the situation in Big Mountain. In a nut shell, there were large companies interested in land in the Big Mountain area, the northeast part of Arizona, where the Hopi and Navajo (Dine) people live. In the course of discussing this situation, the presenters, including Thomas Banacyca, a Hopi Elder who has traveled all over the world sharing the Hopi Prophecy inscribed on a large rock in Oraibi, AZ - one of the oldest Indian villages known. The Indians said at this meeting that the Hopi Prophecy warns about disrupting the Mother Earth in this region, to stripmine for minerals. Next is information shared during this meeting about the prophecy.
PEACE AMONG ALL PEOPLES AND HARMONY WITH NATURE
TOGETHER WITH ALL PEOPLE WE PROTECT
ALL LANDS AND LIVES AND HOLD
THE WORLD IN BALANCE
The circle with the 4 (o's) and cross within (above), symbolizes the Four Corners Region (where Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico meet - a very high energy vortex). The circle represents no end - the infinite Great Spirit. The Indians believe we are the 5th World of Man. When the 4th World was destroyed (this destruction was foretold), those Indians who had listened were guided to places of safety, underground. After the 5th World was created, they assembled at Four Corners and were instructed to spread out in the four directions (north - south - east - west). Four (4) also represents the four elements in nature: fire, water, air and earth; and the four color races of man.
In the Hopi Prophecy, it spoke of a white man who would come to them and help transform the entire continent into a spiritual paradise. He would be recognized because he would carry the fragment of stone which would complete their Holy Stone, filled with Indian writing characters. The Holy Stone had been preserved for thousands of years. Thus, when the white settlers came to the American continent, remembering their prophecy, they were openly welcomed. The Indians shared all they had. But, in return, all the White Man did was to take. The Indians noticed that their White Brothers had brought a cross. However, it was not enclosed by the circle of the Great Spirit, showing the White Man had lost his way.
The Indians believe that at the beginning of the 5th World, when man was told to disburse throughout the planet, from Four Corners, the White Race was one of the original races that went East. Upon their return to our continent, they had become confused and forgotten the ways of the Great Spirit. Further the prophecy continued, either the White Man would bring peace and harmony or attempt to totally destroy the Indian's way of life and take all his possessions and the land. If the latter occured, (which is clearly the case today) there would come a time when the Indian people would appear to be almost non-existent. Yet, one day, they would rise out of nowhere, as the white race is falling due to their own ignorance and destruction, to lead a spiritual revolution, so all people on this continent would become attuned to the Great Spirit. To hold fast to the traditional ways even if it seemed that everything was against them. To protect Four Corners at all cost, because there is great power under the land that if it is allowed to escape, great destruction would result. Today, the Indians are going through the test to hold onto their traditional ways and protect the land. The White Man's society is trying to swallow the Indians up. Many of their people, especially the young, are falling prey to the White Man's ways.
Their prophecy also talks about creation of atomic bombs as catastrophes of great heat, equal to the heat of a sun. It also warns about tampering with the moon (violating its nature by removing rocks, soil from moon)
(Related to the Big Mountain issue:) It is their duty/responsibility to their family, animals and all of nature, to keep this land protected and in harmony. Everything in nature has a power in it. Water represents purification of human beings. All spiritual people should unite on a spiritual path. To save this land is a mission assigned by the Great Spirit.
One of the prophecies - All Indians and Non-Indians would one day (now) begin to understand a great problem facing all people. Someday a white brother who went away to record things will return to this land and bring spiritual life to the continent. When White Brother returns, Hopi must keep their spiritual ways so they can show others how to live the right way. Very important job. Elders know ancient knowledge, which also will be shared at the right time with all. Based on prophecy, Indians welcomed the white man. White man destroyed privledge. Indians gave hospitality and whites took everything. Indians do not lie - Whites tricked Indians with lies. By prophecy - Four Corners will be area of confrontation between White and Red. Indians will be pushed into Four Corners. Great Spirit told Hopi - Four Corners is the backbone of the United States. Hopi must hold land till Human Beings live in harmony. The power under the land would be used for destruction. (There would be a) Terrible punishment if give up Four Corners. (Hopi Elders also know about the prophecies of earth changes and Space Brothers - side note).
This concludes my notes from the meeting, which I felt was quite educational about the Hopi Prophecy itself. In addition to the information I collected at the meeting, I also obtained an interesting handout which I will reprint portions of in the following sections ..... Illinois

FOR SACRED LANDS
The "Four Corners"
According to a Hopi prophecy, dating back to that nation's origin as the first inhabitants of the Nortl-t American continent, almost all life will stop on this, our planet, unless men come to know that every- one must learn to live in peace and harmony with Nature, the Mother of us all. Today, as many of the Hopi prophecies of destruction and desecration have already come to pass, these prophecies take on a profound meaning: the very survival of humanity and Planet Earth. For the Hopis live in a sacred place in the Southwest known to them as the spiritual center of our continent-and now known to scientists as a key center of electromagnetic forcefields that are essential to the health and well-being of all life.
According to Hopi legend, passed on from generation to generation, it is that nation's central responsi- bility to protect Mother Earth by preserving the Four Corners (centered in Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico) and to remain custodians of that mineral-rich reserve while war still stalks the world.
Yet as of this minute, even as science is recognizing the Four Corners to. be one of the few key focal centers in the world where the energy currents must be kept in balance to maintain a life-giving bio- sphere, over 6,000 Hopis and Navajos are being forcibly removed to a barren, uninhabitable area through the wanton passage of Public Law 93-531. While science is discovering that radioactive minerals and rushing underground streams, along with solar radiation (all present at the Four Corners), are the main sources of positive and negative ions in the atmosphere, which are essential to humanity for physical and mental health, a newly erected barbed wire fence is cruelly separating these Native Americans from their homeland and their trust. Unthinkably, these sacred lands are being mined to remove the valuable radioactive minerals, the water table is drastically being reduced through wasteful stripmining (at 1,110 gallons per minute), and the area is being contaminated by radioactive wastes.
Because of the Hopis' deep spiritual qualities and sensitivity to nature, they know that the essential electromagnetic balance of life forces is maintained not only through nature's gifts of minerals, water, and sunlight and by the atmospheric currents and charged ion fields, but also by their sacred rituals and ceremonial dances. Their very presence in Hopi land, their demeanor and their reverence for life, is a protection for the people of the earth, for all are bound together in a global grid pattern of energy. Despite their warnings, a resource-hungry civilization is unwittingly and unknowingly moving in upon itself, to destroy the very life's breath of the planet that embraces it and alter the earth's delicate bio-electric balance. And fear for all of humanity, as well as for their own people and the Navajos, grips the Hopis.
The Traditional Hopi Elders tell us: "Everything depends upon the proper balance being maintained. They realize that if the mining and stripmining continue unabated, that if technology becomes a mind-less god to this great country and remembers not the heart of the Earth Mother, that not only the Hopi will die, "...but all will disintegrate to nothing ... time is very short."
Time is very short indeed. Perhaps ironically, perhaps cosmically, the planetary conjunction forecast
for the year 1982 coincides with the deadline set for the final Hopi and Navajo eviction. Is it possible
that the sacrifice of the Hopi "place of power," this vital electromagnetic source point, could affect the
earth's ability to withstand the pull of the planetary alignment, resulting in an instability that could
spin it out of control?
TO WHOM IS IT HAPPENING?
A polar shift has been predicted by many respected individuals, yet, according to John White, author of Pole Shift, a shift of the earth's axis is not inevitable. He claims, "The predictions and prophecies say that human consciousness itself will be the critical factor." It is human consciousness, then, that must awaken to the danger and demand the safety and protection of the Four Corners area and its people, currently the most vulnerable to annihilation in the entire world. Perhaps the imminent loss and destruction of the "heart of the Earth Mother" is our early warning system that it is a united "we" who must preserve the earth's stability to sustain the delicate balance of power in the planetary grid structure. For it is a united "we" who form human consciousness.
Thus, if human consciousness is to be alerted, we of the human race must become instantly . aware not only of what is happening but also to whom. For:
It is happening to the Hopis and the Navajos who, stripped of their pride as independent nations, will no longer have a home that will sustain life, and many of whom are already dying from radioactive poisoning,
It is happening to all sensitive and compassionate individuals who feel their pain, and a responsibility for the ill-treatment of all Indian nations since North America first knew a United States.
It is happening to the integrity and honor of a great nation which broke 371 treaties with Indian nations, and to respect once held for those corporations that have allowed human greed to violate their ethics.
It is happening to a planet, which, already polluted and suffering from irreverent use of its rich natural resources, cannot withstand the final injury to delicate atmospheric and energy balances.
But, above all, it is happening to us, to all countries and all people, to our children, and our children's children, and to all life. For, if the earth shall perish, personal self-interest and acquisition, and even our injustices to one another, will be as nothing. If we are to have a planet on which to live, and live abundantly, this is a time to fully forgive one another for all past grievances and errors of ignorance and together take full responsibility for restoring our earth to its Divinely ordainned state. How are we to do this? Through personal action NOW.

From: Schultheiss Ruedi, 100343,552
We are entering the last days. The Hopi Spiritual Leaders have spoken their urgent warning and message to the United Nations and around the world, yet there has been no response.
The sacret lands of the Hopi are being desecrated by water and power lines. The bulldozers are on the land. Soon the Hopi will be unable to conduct their ceremonies. Listen to their words. Then respond. The leaders say it is our turn to act.
The Governement of the United States only recognizes the illegally elocted tribunal council - These are not our leaders, this is not our way. We must be left alone and allowed to follow our original instructions without the interference of western ways. We must protect these sacret lands, these sacret ways. If these instructions are not followed, the Purification will begin. Already the signs of the days of Purification are beginning: For the sake of Mother earth and here children, for the sake of all your children and your childrens children action is needed now.
Hopis' Ancient Knowledge and Prophecies are warning through many signs, that we have entered a dangerous period in our lives. Mankind must return to Peaceful ways, and halt the Destruction of Mother Earth, or are we going to destroy ourselves. All the Stages of Hopi prophecy have come to pass, except for the last, the purification. The intensity of this purification will depend of how humanity collaborates with Creation.
We must Correct and Changes our ways, go back to the Spiritual ways, and take care of Mother Earth. If we do not, we are going to face terrible destruction by Nature, wars will come like powerful winds, bringing Purification or Destruction. The more we turn away from the Instructions of the Great Spirit, the more signs we see in the form of earthquakes, floods, drought, fires, tornados; along with wars and corruption.
If we do not Correct and Change these things, we are all going to suffer, there is no way we will be able to help each other after this. The World problems, and the Destruction of Mother Earth will be so terrible, there may be nothing left on this Earth. We do not want to see this happen.
We hope that by bringing these Warnings to the attention of the people of this land, and around the World, that we will understand the Seriousness of this moment, that we may be able to help one another, and to help bring about a better way of Life.
Hopi Traditional Leaders included: Dan Evehama, Martin Gashwesooma, Manuel Hoyangowa; assisted by spokesman Thomas Banyacya.
JOIN US IN ACTION TO SUPPORT THE SPIRITUAL LEADERS OF THE HOPI NATION.
As Brothers and Sisters from the Four Directions, we share the Concern for the Healing of Mother Earth, and of all her people. Visions, Prophecies, Wanings, Teachings of the Traditional Leaders from the Four Directions point to the same Message, spoken in beautiful variations.
They all speak of the Knowledge of these times; of the urgent need for each of us, as individuals, to search our hearts, to recognize and upon our serious responsibility to protect Mother Earth. We need to heal, to awaken to the danger of these times.
We need to take action and sacrifice to protect our Grandchildren and all living beings. The Elders have had final signs from Mother Nature and from the Great Spirit, declaring this time to be our last and final chance to help one another, heal and work together.
---> It is urgent and essential that we respond in every way we can.
---> Please search your hearts, your talents and your resources to find what you can do.
Find ways you can contribute to this urgent call. Organizational actions, liaison work, media awareness and communication strategies are critically needed. Network this communication to your networks.
Write to your leaders, your legislators, congressman, and Senators now. Write to your president, the Departement of the Interior, Secretary Bruce Babbitt, Att. General Janet Reno, the Departement of Justice. Tell them that you demand an immediate cessation of the disruption of Hopi sacred land and ancient spiritual practices.
Write to your Ambassadors and Human Rights Representatives to the United Nations. Tell them that you support the preservation of Hopi traditional sacred practices, lands, and ceremonies, and that you hold them accountable for following up on this action.
It is the time to also contact your press and media contacts and tell them that this is the last opportunity to get this message out.
If the sacret lands are allowe to be disrupted, there will be no more chance to put things right. The bulldozers are on the land now, the workmen are ready to act.
In the Name of the Creator, in the name of freedom of religion, in the name of our love for the Earth and for all our children, we must act now. TOMORROW IT IS TO LATE.
The United States governement must know that the world is watching, that we care about the spiritual practices of the Hopi Traditional Leaders.

Hopi Prohecy Clarification|
by Robert Coody
In reading through the paraphrased information stated by Thomas Banacyca presented by Rudi in Switzerland there are some errors in interpretation of the Hopi symbolism. The circular shield device which is divided into four elements represents the four worlds of the Hopi and not the "four corners region," which is a phenomena of the United States surveys of the west in the 19th century. The circular device will have various interpretations depending on which village you talk to and which Kikmonqwi you communicate with.
One interpretation of the device from a Hopi perspective is that it represents the four worlds of the Hopi and that it was the shield symbol of Masau, the earth god from whom they obtained permission to settle in their present region. The device was often painted on Hopi shields and carried by various societys whose responsibility it was to protect the Hopi lands. Currently the Hopi are in the fourth world and not the fifth as is stated in the narrative. I would suggest contacting the Hopi Cultural Center for verification of traditional information, otherwise we will see further closure of villages to outsiders and a further division of the Hopi people themselves.
Thank you for your time in reading this item,
