It is the moment Indigenous World-view understands all former failed human systems and overbearing authorities cease to be given power by their Creator and the meek Indigenous voice returns to those who inherit the earth. A new era has begun. It is a time to celebrate a coming together to the cycle of the Fire Clan. If we fast and pray in this cycle, purification will result and we will be able to hear the humble voice of our Indigenous Elders. It is these Elders who offered the Hopi tablets to assist in the purification of the fourth world. These are the four Hopi tablets of the Fire Clan and Bear Clan:
From an ancient time in the past, these tablets were given to the Hopi by Massau (Masaw, the Guardian of the Underworld, who requested they keep them until a number of signs were fulfilled at the end of the fourth world and the beginning of the fifth world. When the warning signs occurred the Hopi were instructed to reveal the tablets and their prophecies to the world regarding the purification of the earth. A time would come when the lost white (robed) brother or Pahana would come to break open the Hopi Tablets and reveal within their hidden sacred teachings. This kind of hidden teaching revealed to a future generation is a familiar mystic element among the Buddhists of Tibet. The Tibetans call it gter-ma, for Treasures (also nidhi in Sanskrit). The gterma Treasures are revealed teachings hidden away until they can be used for the benefit of people in the future. The Dead Sea Scrolls would be regarded as such. This hiding of sacred texts and objects was a practice of Padmasambhava (Lotus Born), who aided in formally establishing Buddhism in Tibet in the 8th Century c.e.. Those prophesied to find these texts or objects in the future are known as gter-ston or Treasurefinders. These Treasures may be found in various sacred-sites where they were originally
2 hid or may be seen in a sacred visionary experience, called a dag-snang. Such a vision of a revealed treasured teaching is an expression of the enlightened intension of the buddhamind. Perhaps in an Indigenous voice it can be said that the Creator desired to reveal the instructions of the Great Turning or the Shift of humanity into harmony with Mother Earth and this revelation was given to those eager to return harmony between humanity and all of our ecosystems. The Great Turning is a name for the essential adventure of our time: the shift from industrial growth society to a life-sustaining civilization. Joanna Macy (Author of Active Hope) The 1200 year old Treasure Finding prophecy of Padmasambhava (Lotus Born or Born of Water) parallels the Hopi prophecy: Tibetan Prophecy: When the iron eagle flies and horses run on wheels, the Tibetan people will be scattered over the earth and the dharma will go to the land of the red man. Hopi Prophecy: When the iron bird flies, the red-robed people of the east who have lost their land will appear, and the two brothers from across the great ocean will be reunited. In the 1970s and 80s, Tibetan Buddhist delegates (including the Dalai Lama) exchanged visits with the Hopi elders to confirm the fulfillment of these prophesies. The Tibetans also have stone tablets, which may help shed light on the purpose of the Hopi tablets. The Tibetan Six Syllable Mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum, is contained on stone tablet prayer offerings in Tibet.
Om Mani Padme Hum is associated with the deity of compassion and means Favorable (Om) Jewel (Mani) Lotus Flower (Padma) Truly (Hum). According to the description of
the 14th Dalai Lama, the Six Syllable Mantra:
the following chart can be made on the symbolism of
Om Mani Padme Hum
Symbolic of: impure human body, mind, speech vs. pure body, mind, speech of Buddha the jewel or treasure of desire for enlightenment, compassion and love the lotus or water lily of wisdom indivisibility between wisdom and enlightenment
The Dalai Lama concludes: Thus the six syllables, om mani padme hum, mean that in dependence on the practice of a path which is an indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech, and mind into the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha In relation to the Hopi Tablets, a similar purification is intended. According to the Hopi, their compassionate Spirit of the Underworld, Massau, gave specific instruction to follow that would assist in the purification of the entire world after the fourth world has gone astray. Christian missionaries attempted to present the argument that they were the true Pahana, Lost White-robed Brother, returned to translate the Hopi tablets. Yet, none knew the handshake of brotherhood or the sacred path of the corn seeds as seen on the Hopi tablets. The Hopi Elders were instructed to sever the head of anyone who could not follow the true religion given by Massau. Is there a symbolic meaning intended in the severing of the head likened to those whose mind or philosophy is not truly enlightened toward the prophecy hidden like treasure within the Hopi tablets? Below is a description of the tablets according to Hopi tradition, followed by an interpretation from broader ancient mythology. Here are the tablets as understood by the Hopi:
Upon reuniting with the Fire Clan. Masaw. It is a dark stone with a piece broken off of the corner. if their leader accepted any other religion. the time would come when they would be overcome by a strange people. Masaw gave the Hopi this tablet just before ‗he turned his face from them. From the Book of Hopi by Frank Waters As illustrated above. The Hopi rattle below shows the same central ‗churning‘ of the earth pattern found on the Fire Clan tablet. their lost white (robed) brother. becoming invisible. or else they would be treated as criminals and punished. warned Masaw. the deity of the Fire Clan. the tablet and its symbols represent a proof of land designation for the Hopi through the Fire Clan‘s deity of the Underworld.4 The above Hopi tablet is only 4 inches square and was given to the Hopi by Masaw. he would rescue the Fire Clan from certain overlords who were yet to come. as marked on the tablet: After the Fire Clan had migrated to their permanent home. he must assent to having his head cut off. But. Pahana. When the Pahana. deliver them from their prosecutors. who would return to them with the missing corner piece of the tablet. This deity appeared as a human being who gave the tablet and kept a piece for himself. so that they would have a record of his words.‘ This is what he said. returns he will bring the missing piece and open up the tablet to reveal hidden meanings. They were to wait for the person who would deliver them. and work out with them a new and universal brotherhood of man. . This would dispel the evil and save his people. This person was their lost white brother. They would be forced to develop their land and lives according to the dictates of a new ruler. But they were not to resist.

Such markings appear on the outside of the 3rd Bear Clan tablet below. offers a proof of territorial designation by a Higher Power. they are powerful symbols confirming oral traditions that state the Hopi were given the land as long as the rivers shall run.garlandsrugs. meaning Bear Paw. like the Fire Clan tablet.

These tablets taken in the context of Hopi traditions include the stories related to local petroglyphs. shown here: The Hopi describe the large human figure on the left as the Great Spirit. The bow represents his instructions to the Hopi to lay down their weapons.6 The third tablet of the Bear Clan contains even more symbols. close to Oraibi.

The first two circles represent the two World Wars. After this purification. the lower road meets a third smaller circle. Yet. the corn stock of a new abundance will grow when the Great Spirit returns. The fourth small human figure above represents the fourth world where the Hopi have met the white man. This world too is passing away. the tablets can be seen to coincide with Hopi traditions and ritual as described on Prophecy Rock and the Hopi rattle. the narrow path below represents harmony with the earth and leads to a new world. Where the upper road disintegrates. the great shaking of the earth. but the elders worn that some Hopi have been seduced by its glamour. representing the Great Purification.

The coming of Pahana will begin the fifth world. were all these signs will be confirmed. from where? Does this Hopi Fire Clan tablet truly represent the final seal to be broken open at the end of the world to usher a fifth-world paradise? If so. The only way of knowing this tablet‘s true and vital importance is to explore the significance of the signs expressed by the Hopi elders. How did the Hopi obtain these tablets and their traditions? Did the Creator truly come out of the Great Beyond and present them? Or did he send a prophet? If so. consider the Hopi interpretation of the tablet through the . but also those human systems causing the damage. the four worlds coming to an end. This is one of numerous signs that current human activity is causing grave damage to the earth and that not only the earth needs purifying. then this is one important tablet. What is also remarkable about these tablets is their oral tradition relating to a sign for the times when the Hopi will disclose the season for the purification of our world.8 the purifier or strong man. there will be a purification and the people of the land will be instructed by the Great Spirit how to live long and prosper. the symbol of corn as a return to harmony with the earth.

It is this First Father‘s hero twin sons that avenge their father‘s death and participate in his resurrection from the earth‘s turtle shell shown below on the Uaxactun Plate: Since the Mayan hero twins Father is sacrificed and risen at the World-Tree located at the North Pole. Is there any sign on this tablet interpreted by the Hopi that has a parallel with Mayan beliefs? If so. To the ancient Maya this turning occurred at the World Tree or World Axis at the center of the earth considered to be the world‘s northern most point.

The Mayan represent the Celestial Solar Bird sacrifice by its falling much like the Cygnus constellation in the Great Rift of the Milky Way. so that anyone in our world can receive the fruit of enlightenment. The smallest and simplest of the four Hopi tablets (the Fire Clan tablet above) is perhaps the most remarkable. the most sacred home of the Hopi is named after this Northern Earth point. If the front of the fourth tablet swastika is the Northern Earth symbol. The Hopi clans then catch the sacred eagles in order to have a share in their feathers with give their prayers power harnessed from the sun. Hun Hunahpu was killed in the underworld called.

First-three-stone-place When 13 cycles ended that day and these actions were performed by Six-sky-lord Jaquar Paddler is one of the Six-sky-lords on the Mayan Pot of the Seven Gods. Of the three stones seated at the Northern Axis the Quirigua Stele C reads: The Jaguar Paddler and the Stingray Paddler seated a stone It happened at Na-Ha-Chan. The six gods are separated by a river just as the Hopi relate on the Bear Clan Tablets. Consider the Jaquar-throne-stone as the blue-star. Lying-down-sky and First-three-stone-place. Cygnus sacrificed himself by falling into the River of the Dark Rift to revive his friend from the dead. The reason being.

These mythic symbols can be likened to the severed head on the Hopi Fire Clan Tablet and the Broken Piece of the Hopi Tablet (see below). of the Constellation Cygnus.12 Quiriqua Stele further describes the creation account of the Fifth World at this northern axis. because in 3114 bce. this creation account tells that the First Father. Itzamna seated the Waterlily-throne-stone. That is. Such an image of the Deer Helper within the ecosystem of the Hopi becomes wrapped up in the sacred feasts. the Fourth-World Northern sky contains a Black-house. which given the overall context can be equated with Om Mani Padme Hum.

Polaris was not at the Northern most point of the sky. Itzamna set stone at the Waterlily-throne-stone… All this happened at Lying-down-sky. the deer of sacrifice of the Hopi involves the sacrifice of the First Father and gives power to those fleeing the Red City (Avenue) of the Dead. an elaboration of this act of Creation is possible. If Lying-down-sky is the Northern Axis at the end of the Fourth World and Beginning of the Fifth. 2012. the stone that was seated by Six-sky-lord could be none other than Polaris. the Jaquar-throne-stone.

called the Galactic Alignment. which happens once every 26000 years. the point of view approaches the city from the West. The Sun setting the night before in the West represents this death and now its rising represents new life. 2012. Yet. The rebirth of Quetzalcoatl was celebrated in the offering of the first fruit (fish and maize). The symbolism on the front represents a royal succession shown with double marks on the side and the empty grave of a ruler surrounded by the graves of six dead servants. even the viewpoint from the West. The Prophecy of this Mask Removing Ceremony is about rebirth. on this particular day. therefore. This first tablet correlates with the Mayan end date symbolism written above.2 This kind of grave with a royal surrounded by servants or wives is exactly similar to the graves of royals to the south in ancient Peru. Also consider the Peruvian temple at Kothosh . which represents death.16 The imagery of the Dark Rift represents the cave of death where the Sacrifice of Quetzalcoatl (see above Stelas) took place at the end of the Second World (see Hopi Tablets interpretation in the Introduction). The establishment of a purified earth because of this offering is signalled on December 21. is significant to this illustration. a number of celestial phenomenon fit together like a puzzle revealing volumes of lost ancient wisdom. In the above diagram.
Beside these solar symbols are two interlocking moons. The difference in size suggest they are male and female and also represent an early American belief in duality. representing the passing of time (quite literally. below the six niches bordering the rectangular floor are six crossed hand carvings. the back of this first Hopi Bear Clan tablet reveals the five worlds. Opposing carvings are crossed with the opposite hand (right faces left). the first and last week of the lunar month with the 7 day formation of crescent moons). More remarkably. followed by another dark era (plus sign). and a final return to enlightenment in the fifth world we are about to enter (the symbol appears identical to that of the first Golden Era). Each solar symbol represents a world. As well. which correspond to Mayan. Hopi and Hindu cosmologies. . followed by a return to enlightenment (represented by the double circles). followed by a symbol (the plus sign) representing a dark era without the sun.17 The temple is designed as a rectangle within a rectangle just as on the tablets. where the top symbol (a circle with four rays) is the first golden era of enlightenment. much like the Maya and Hopi.
18 On the tablet, the symbols of a spirit, cloud and corn stalk, rising left and right represent the dark road and the red road of enlightenment. The dark road of death is represented by the claws of the bear, the road of life and sacrifice is represented by the mouth of the snake. This snake represents the Milky Way just as the crocodile-frog of the Mayan Stella 11 above. Below the snake are the four rivers of life washing the successive generations seen along the side of the tablet. The Great Spirit rises out of the serpent‘s mouth on the right and confronts the bear on the left. The storm cloud represents destruction and rebirth and the corn represents the Lord of Creation whose spirit rises through the cloud to inaugurate the sacred corn feast in the harvest ceremonies. The spirit or lord of the corn is often considered wearing a mask of corn husk with long hair or corn fiber protruding out of the mask. Feathers may be used in Mayan masks to hide this deity of life born out of the serpent. The lord Quetzalcoatl, the Feathered Serpent, is a prime example.
The second tablet reveals the dawn represented by the oblong sun formed into a maize cob. The earth is receiving enlightenment from this meal eliminating the borders made by human division. The central dotted line represents death where the rising of the Maize-sun will eventually enlighten and heal even the regions of the underworld. The back contains the paw markings of the strong bear of death to link tablet 2 to tablet 1. The mythical story unfolds offering two sides of human existence. One side requires a facing of a great spirit equipped with the claws of judgment. The alternate side faces the unveiling of the maize skin mask of the Lord of the Sun, Quetzalcoatl.
The third tablet contains a double snake surround containing life on earth. The two snakes represent death and the Creator. In the mythology of the Plumed Serpent, Quetzalcoatl, and the two snakes of Hindu lore, the first snake of death rears up to devour the weaker humanity. The second snake representing the Creator comes with much
19 greater power than the first snake of death to devour it. Then this much greater Creator snake now faces the much weaker human. Realizing the human is no contest, the Creator swallows its own tail devouring itself. The four humans with raised arms represent the people in the four corners of the earth. The corn plant represents the first offering of the Creators self-sacrifice which causes all life to exist. Also present on this front side is the universal symbolism of the World Egg creation story. The back of this third tablet reveals the strong person or Great Spirit the soul must contend with at death. This image of strength relates to the bear paws of the second tablet. The Hopi themselves prophesied of a visitation of sages from the far East when they foretold: ―A tribe of red hat and red cloaked people would come in great numbers from the East, traveling through the air…‖. Amazingly, 1200 years ago, Padmasambhava, the founder of Tibetan Buddhism also prophesied: ―When the iron bird flies (airplanes) and the horse runs on wheels (cars), the Tibetan people will be scattered like ants across the face of the Earth, and the Dharma will come to the land of the red men.‖ Since the 1970s visits between the Hopi and the red cloaks of Tibet have occurred in mutual acknowledgement of the fulfillment of these prophesies and warnings3. A Hopi elder of the Bear Clan, named White Feather, also described how and when Pahana, the Elder White-robed Brother, would return. Pahana will return at the end of the fourth world: ―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 (Pahana). ―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 men‘s cattle.‖ ―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.‖
20 ―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…‖4 Unusual Dreams of a 12 Year Old Listed is a series of unusual dreams the author experienced at the age of 12 in the late 20th Century: - When he crossed the train bridge in his hometown he saw two worlds. One world was dark and emitted an awful feeling. The other world was full of light and emitted a feeling of immense peace. He woke up reaching out to the world of light with all his heart. - Upon walking through his neighbourhood the earth shook with an explosion at a nearby school. He looked up and saw thousands of airplanes of different sizes and from different eras. Looking at the planes gave him an incredible feeling of peace, but the planes were flying in every direction at every altitude as if they were full of confusion. - Walking away from Calgary with his cousins on a four-lane highway he looked back on the city and it appeared high like a kind of paradise while emitting a great and powerful light. However, the highway was completely empty of cars and they were walking into the darkness away from the city of lights.
In 1992. Before the Europeans arrived in North America. where all along the Lord of Creation (Prajapati) has a plan that will ultimately lead to our greater good if we are willing to follow the good Red Road to enlightenment. the blue mask is taken off. The series of nightmares ended when a woman from paradise took them on a tour of this city of lights under the ground. the friend of Cygnus also receives immortality and Judeo-Christian spirituality also believes in the resurrection of the dead. The 60000 sons of Sagara rise from the dead. Thomas Banyacya was one of four Hopi elders sent by the delegation of Elders in 1948 to give the Hopi prophecies to the world. Each of these dreams had an unusual feeling of peace so intense that he desperately wanted to fall back to sleep and return to the dream upon waking up. the poison of death is defeated. bringing them back to life. In a series of nightmares. the Great Spirit's Life Plan at all times. The Fifth World will be a return to new life and harmony with the earth. After everyone had buckled up the plane became brand new and climbed to an incredible height. The dreams are shared here after the advice of an African Elder who said ―Little Dreams‖ are for the individual.21 While flying in a large passenger plane an airline stewardess told everyone to sit down and buckle up because the plane was falling apart and about to crash. the Hopi Elders described the iron horse as the train and fuel lines of jets as spider webs across the sky. that is the Dark Rift. The Kachina or Blue Star of Hopi prophecy is said to take off his mask while dancing in the plaza. This research has only allowed for a study of a few spiritualties in relation to the Hopi tablets. when he and nine other Native delegates spoke before the United Nations. The Indigenous view of dreams is that they come during a time of great crisis and are meant to help us envision a new reality to participate in as our old realities crumble. - - It is suggested that the ninth sign is the falling of one of the space stations like ‗Mir‘. ―Big Dreams‖ are for everyone. In the Plaza. However. For example. Then we can look at the crisis as a rite of passage. an invisible man pursued him and his cousins in an attempt to take them to an underground city. Shiva is blue after swallowing the poison of the snakes of death. The gap in the fourth tablet is the Great Rift or the Dark Rift. It ties in with the deity Shiva dancing at the washing of sons of Sagara in the river Ganges. This is what he said5: We have made a sacred covenant to follow Maasaw. the First Nations people had visions and dreams of the future. the extent of their travels and how many different spiritualties they influenced or came from. Blue is also the color of the stone symbolizing the Hebrew High Priest. where the Blue Star falls as the head of Cygnus (the one who dove to offer immortality to his friend). much like at the Great Churning of the Ocean. It remains an area of study to discover how these Puhana white-robed sages travelled. which includes the responsibility of taking care of this land and life . he remained the only living of the four. consider the prophecy and tablets as a whole.

Western research tends to assume Western influence with myths that appear on the surface as distinctly Western such as the myth of a world-wide deluge. each tribe and even each story-teller. but requires more evidence than a mere dissemination of each myth by way of intertribal relations: The additional proof consists of an increase in the number of analogous tales.6 Furthermore. the above chart presents an inquiry regarding what extent of this story spans global Indigenous lore. Though the silence itself remains part of the story. or in their geographical distribution. a further cycle of voicelessness may occur. over 30 percent deluge myths. Each Tribe‘s distinct local story form together to create a global epic. Similarly.27 She assists her clan in the killing of the water monster. “Whenever we find a tale spread over a continuous area.. Therefore. Kae. of 160 narratives analysed. taking a poll provides within a few percent of accuracy a sample vote of a larger population. we can safely conclude that European influence was marginal. This argument will be justified. For example. to pursue this inquiry of a global Indigenous story enables a broader understanding to develop out of the added dimension of each region. For instance. even should our tale be a very simple one. what unfolds is a fresh new quilted pattern of Indigenous story across a region.” (JAFL 4: 14)6 From their research of North American mythology.. . On the moon her face and club are seen as she beats the bark of the mulberry tree into tapa clothes for her children. Our answers are likely to fall short of the full story of Indigenous wisdom. if not by European influence. In the field of statistics. only three contained blatant European characteristics. not . Therefore. How does the story account for the attempt by overlords to silence it on the one hand and an understandable protective silence on the other? If the breaking of the silence is one sided. Yet.. why are so many of the same stories scattered across America? Reichard concludes that the possibility of these legends arising independently exists. and in burning the enemies sacred house. we must assume that it spread over this territory from a single centre. Certainly across North America and in Polynesia much of the same story is told by a relatively small proportion of elders who were able to express their voice during the colonial era. that the myths existed among the 51 tribes they researched prior to European contact and that the myths were spread across the continent. Western assumptions tend to scatter and misplace the harmonic element behind indigenous story when confronting these inquiries. the question arises as to what extent reparation can be made regarding lost Indigenous story. Reichard found very little missionary influence on First Nation‘s mythology. in the Journal of American Folklore. The result is the ability to use common patterns in the story as threads to weave over gaps where colonialism silenced the Indigenous voice.
not the values expressed in the story. individual families held them as sacred bundles. they were given from the Respected Spirit. This is not to say that the story-teller is mistaken when saying the story belonged to the community as long as the rivers have run. Such analysis of mythology helps clear a way for us to analyse the Hopi tablets in terms of Indigenous world-view. Places. if the story existed among a certain people and. acts not for itself first. The values of longevity and originality within the story are complemented by the value of harmony among the tribes. The common . the story is not restricted entirely to one locality. yet certain values are universal and cannot be restricted. Indigenous world-view treats ‗evidence‘ as such. These Hopi tablets are regarded as such. as is often the case. as it is clearly present in so many other places. Yet.28 independently made up by each community. That the story came from the First Ancestor who knew his Maker and. Two possibilities remain: a wandering story-teller or a system of intertribal story incorporation. The Hopi believed the Respected Spirit wished to incorporate the entire world into the story of the Hopi tablets in order to broaden the circle of their story. therefore. yet giving them each a place to belong. Indigenous world-view wants to express that their story came from time immemorial. a generational offering took place to pass them on and a certain time was appointed for the rest of the world to see them. when the ‗travelling storyteller‘ is identified by nearly all of these tribes. The restriction involves the specific place. and this is a point worth noting. Indigenous world-view has the potential to gather the sciences. as well as. Yet. the story truly belongs to that people. they were in the possession of the Fire Clan and Bear Clan. not in contention with that harmony. their specific plants and totems are fixed and so define individual tribal identity. is associated with their local landforms. he is regarded as a deity or deified ancestor. (though quite unique and completely preserved). Indigenous philosophy is harmonic and holistic in that each related artefact. relations. but for the whole. What remains is a universal value expressed with local characteristics for the purpose of placing a protective restriction or tapu upon the land. And this is evidence of the presence of the Creator as a life-force working within all relations drawing them together in harmony. That is. all nations and peoples in order to harmonize the restoration of our ecosystems. not the other way around. But. What makes it possible for the story to be told everywhere yet only apply to the people gathered in the circle of the story-teller? If the story were made up by the local story-teller it would be in fact impossible. Just imagine. but through the inquiry to build identity and harmony. For example. In Western research we tend to compartmentalize each field of knowledge and science. the elements. the story chose the people. a scholar of linguistics is not always encouraged to develop hypothesis in the field of philosophy. persons vs. not to find answers for the sake of themselves. The same can be said of items vs. It is no surprise then. Its role is played out among a circle of relations reflecting back on itself the essence of its full purpose and beauty.
29 mystery of the Hopi tablets vocalizes this harmony in the measure from which listeners of the story are capable of coming together holistically to understand these tablets. to heal from excessive to harmonize all aspects of workloads at the service identity with all relations of functional economic in order to keep awe struck and material based by and protective toward systems. When we say there are 10 pages coming out of the photocopier it is a literal statement. that land of Mother Earth in which we belong. a wayfinders guide and a story board Deity tends to transcends Imminent Life Force with human authority that with human authority that restricts boundaries. In contrast. such a chart is useful for focusing in on the context of the Hopi tablets. it simultaneously connects with otherworld heroes who succeeded at the task. In order to understand the writing system of an Indigenous culture. Communal Relation oriented taken as an art. Here is where our ‗Shift‘ in thinking can be exercised. The tablets are read to listeners through storytelling and according to the legend will be opened to reveal new information inside. in Indigenous world-view the tablets are not taken as artefacts. a home for the ancestors. Western language has been refined by industrialism into a near functional mechanism. Indigenous linguistics has developed within a network of relational value based constructs. . Where one sentence defines a task. The story of the Hopi tablets is explosive for the reason that the Western mind tends to miss. That is. relates to a web of story that defines the value needed to complete the task and weaves the individual into the ecosystem.

Wyandot and one Great Lakes tribe had European elements in their flood myth. by all licit means with the bleeding passion of every heart and the stirring creativity of every mind. All these nearsighted economy driven ideologies marginalizing Indigenous World-view have led the world down a path of the annihilation of not only thousands of Indigenous language groups. was among the many sincere who were unable to prevent a political machine bent on exploitation from pounding into submission Indigenous peoples and related lands world-wide. Since. In this context.32 linguistic comparisons was to exclude post-colonial linguistic influence in his MaoriPolynesian Comparative Dictionary. in this consideration of myth dissemination. Scholars of the Sciences prefer more recently dated sources. rising tides and oil-spills just to name a few. it is Morning Star of the dawning new era to sustainability in the Shift towards all our relations and the Great Turning of our hearts to Mother Earth.6 Apart from some politically correct editing. sustainability must be the thrust of every human activity and waking thought. Gladys Reichard. only the Huron. would we so eagerly suck it out of her? If sea creatures were our sisters and brothers would we be dragging our weighted nets so violently across their living spaces? What is required is Indigenous wisdom which perceives the Creator‘s life-force in our ecosystems and so gently places every step. Reichard and Tregear were ahead of their time. Our motivation inspires a deeply rooted peace ignited by a voice cracking out of every stone we break open. Furthermore. Of the above myths. Again. Time is not essential when every day is a good day to die. but every human and species is now at risk. The first line of the Introduction of Reichard‘s Literary Types and Dissemination of Myths states: Since. It is because we are all Indigenous to Mother Earth. In this regard and with Mother Earth‘s inheritance slipping out of the hands of our children. the Hopi tablets are but a flint to reignite an Indigenous World-view incubating in every heart toward all our ecosystems. In essence. we are dealing with a product of the Indian mind. that amounts to 157 out of 160 or 98% pure Indigenous North . But these tablets are instructions to restore the seat in our world-circle for the Indigenous voice. we shall feel justified in defining myth as the Indian himself characterizes it. these sacred tablets are an Underworld safety chest for all the lost Indigenous voices around the world. The decipherment of these tablets is not a scholastic trophy. With that Indigenous voice waning and muted who will come to all our relations defence? If our oil was the blood of our Mother Earth. These tablets are not warnings. but with Indigenous World-view sincerity and originality matters most. The box is full to bursting for the opening of these seals and the decipherment of these portents and essential wayfinding signs. the older the source the better. The warnings are crashing in all around us in our ecosystems with extreme weather.
it was agreed that the Blackfoot were the rightful inhabitants. then. climate. a holistic perception of tribal story unfolds.6 In understanding this essence of mystical and mythical diffusion. we can call this form of mythical transfer and diffusion: transubstantiation. etc. 276). In learning the broader context of Indigenous mythology surrounding the Hopi. in a talk given by Blackfoot Elders.‖ The ancient Hopi lived by this cyclical regenerative and universal norm in one of the most finely balanced lifestyles and ceremonial cultures on the planet. Yet. Therefore. How did the Hopi thrive and grow so much corn in the desert? Such harmony requires the most refined equilibrium between the elements and all relations present. .6 However. Reichard sources Swanton who states myths are defused locally by simple repetition. In his vision he saw humanity gathered as a giant ring with a tree in the centre. when myths come from abroad they are adopted.33 American myths related to Star-Boy and the Deluge (Reichard. but rather a tribal icon is a relation with a life-force. which would refine each organism making them ‗real‘ participants in the ecosystem. the icon is distinct within the harmony of the broader Indigenous circle. ancient heroes. Upon discussing in a circle the mythology associated with the land forms of the region. the creation of the first man and woman on the land and/or linked to landforms. That is. On dissemination of myth. when from abroad they may then be associated with local land-forms by way of re-localization. That is re-localization is weaved into stories associated with the original migration to the land. Bruce Wolf Child and Andy Black Water. expand and make an impression upon those who perceive it. it was mentioned that a neighbouring Indigenous nation had a land dispute with the Blackfoot. no one can rightly say that the Ancient Middle-Eastern deluge is not also a pure Indigenous myth which participated in global Indigenous dissemination long before Columbus when the Wayfinders roamed the Earth. there is the local element. This ‗world-circle‘ was made up of a chain of many tiny ‗tribal‘ circles. a natural progression or transfer of wisdom takes place. stories and tablets. that can breathe. When all of these elements are combined in story transfer and ceremony feast with local produce to confirm the sacred identity of each individual in that particular community.6 The elders confirmed that when a story is being told it should always come from the source. a tribal icon (Indigenous artefact or relation) is not understood within a melting pot of speculative analysis. The one who gave the Hopi tablets instructed the Hopi to live in this sparse ecosystem as a sign of faith to the world of their calling to teach the world to be ‗real‘ persons on Mother Earth. the phrase from a Hebrew creation myth comes to mind: ―Be fruitful and multiply. local organisms. deities. Just as the tribe. their ceremony. while conferring their right and power (Polynesian mana) to belonging among all their relations including the Creator. A perfect vision of this analogy occurred when Nicholas Black Elk was 12 years old and dying of Tuberculosis. though universal elements of story are diffused across the globe and pertain to values that all people can embrace. each containing a small tree of their own..
P. In North America. but rather ―the hypothesis of convergent development‖ (Luomala. Looking into the spiritual context and mystical reasoning behind the myths are key to understanding Indigenous mythology and story-telling. Luomala is left explaining away all the evidence that Reichard above was willing to admit. after the Sun is released it burrows into the ground. heroes. . in the Yoruk tale. possibly due to the Fur Trade. It is the picture of an individual relation that enhances his/her own beauty as it reflects off of all relations. Oddly. during tattooing rites and at death. then what is to stop the Indigenous people of the North West Coast from transferring stories over land trade routes to the Great Lakes. Luomala concludes that the Sun Noosing myths occurred in Polynesia and North America.34 Such ‗breathing‘ of life-force in the artefacts of story is clearly evident when exploring how these universal myths weave harmony among global Indigenous philosophy. stealing the fire and being trapped in the Underworld body of Hine-nui-te-po. P. 1940. Elaborations are given and a dialogue develops among this ‗world-circle‘ that Black-Elk saw in his vision. In particular. 6 Moreover. themes and creatures are proven to exist on nearby continents. as himself. There is circular reasoning and then there is another false reasoning that breaks up the circle of evidence.6 Remarkably. This deflective reasoning includes admitting that researchers point to more likely North American-Polynesian contact in the North West Coast. the Sun Snarer appears to have originated among the Ojibwa of Lake Superior and then fanned out during Westward migrations. outside the Sun Snaring myth regions (Luomala. In the dialogue we learn more about ourselves from the other. 51). Ancient Polynesian mythology bears certain common elements and common mythical heroes.6 However. Luomala admits of an African Sun Snarer who nooses the Sun and usually uses animals to release the Sun to prevent from getting burned. as ‗to wash‘6 and the model of ancient Polynesian purification ceremonies use of water to purify at birth.6 In the end. would agree in a North West Coast – Polynesian contact where the Kwakiutl of Vancouver Island whose Sun personified as Kane was identical to that of Hawaii.6 One would think that if Luomala is admitting that the single most difficult obstacle between story-tellers of the Pacific and the Great Lakes region being the Pacific Ocean itself is not an obstacle at all. 51).6 This motif of burrowing in the story is closely associated with a comprehensive Polynesian theme of Maui snaring the Sun. also included in Luomala‘s argument is a comparison of how the string figures of the Inuit and Polynesians are both used in the context of Sun Snaring mythology. this takes humility and vulnerability with mutual respect. it stands to reason that ancient seafarers passed on these traditions. due to the Eastern Polynesian predominance of the myth and a single isolated presence of the myth on the West Coast of California a closer look at the Yoruk tribe variant of the Sun Snarer is in order. Heyerdahl of the KonTiki expedition. not by pre-Columbian contact. If some of these elements. Consider the flood mythology in the context of the original Latin meaning for deluge. Such ‗breathing‘ of life into our stories can cause us to learn from the other World-views.
not articulating themes within myths. First. to consider the possibilities or at least be open to the awe of how these relations. And there is more to say about the flood myth than what one or two world-religions have graciously offered. and earth could not carry everything at . The evidence is clear enough from cover to cover. these artefacts can speak to us and motivate us today.6 Heaven could not cover all things uniformly. In America a parallel myth arises sourced by Reichard who writes of ―‘the Dog-Husband‘ story which is found among the Dog-Rib Indians. Dundes edited The Food Myth in 1988. P. Considering Birrel‘s break-through in articulating lost flood-myths of Classical China. To explain it. That is. For example. in the Star Husband myth. 218-219). This is not necessarily magic.6 Since Frazer‘s work on the flood myth was so comprehensive (apart from China). who trace their ancestry to the children of the woman who married a dog. it takes a patient listener willing to sit in the ceremonial plaza of a Hopi village or in a cave house. is turned into a dog and they have the dog child. but rather the skill that all people aspire to in the occupations of their own circles. Birrell offers why the Chinese flood myth is neglected. the data was fragmented and not translated into narrative genre (Birrel. 215). On Vancouver Island the essential elements of the tale have been combined in like manner where a tribe of Indians derives its origin from dogs. the author of Folk-lore in the Old Testament. Chinese authorship was intent on preserving the data of early classic interpretations. none include a flood myth of Classical China (Birrell. In terms of the Hopi tablets. that the flood myth is universal. Yin and Yang into eight)6. P. Birrel courageously confronts what most of us missed by ―benign neglect‖ (Birrel. 1997. 1997. What is also required is clear perception of the evidence. Sir James Frazer. Then Nine Regions split up. This is not to say this research is based on blind faith. Irawaru.‖6 When Indigenous people begin to hear about the animals‘ role in these stories our relationships with these totems enable us to read into the mystical intent of the original story-tellers. Anne Birrell authored an article that would offer a model of how to take off our scholastic cataracts and out of focus biases when viewing Indigenous mythology. Pero. In The Four Flood Myth Traditions of Classical China6. others have followed his missed research of Chinese flood myths. 217). takes at good listener. Birrell includes a communication gap as a reason for missing the China flood myth. And when such skill is perfected it becomes like magic to outside observers. as late as 1997. but not a linguistic communication gap. Birrel sourced portions of the Nu Kua flood narrative that will support this main maternal characters relationship with Hina or Hine of Polynesia: In the time of the remote past. an attempt can be made to clarify parallel misconceptions and understandings of Hopi tablets.6 Go figure. rather the confusion lies in methodology and context. could not find a Chinese flood myth. a world-wide deluge story that is also a global historic legend.35 For example. the four limits [of the cosmos] collapsed6 (divided by two deities. P. Hina‘s first husband. which contains 25 separate articles on the world-wide deluge. 1997. For example.
Once their stories are identified. The pillar of the sky broke and the cord of the earth snapped. Earth had a gap missing in the southeast6. and . she never displays her achievements. Looking for Hina in such a sacred work confirms the weaving of valued mythical traditions across the Pacific. Kung Kung struggled against Chuan Hsu to become God. She was acclaimed by later generations. Her seat is the Chart of the Mortuary Artemisia (funerary medicine plant). In his fury he horn-butted Not-Round-Mountain6. China has another myth with just the one pole: Long ago. she comes to rest below the Supreme Ancestor (T‟ai Tsu – of the Tao). Of yellow cloud is her steeds‟ halter. They were carried on the back of the square [earth] and embraced by the round sky. The four limits were set right. it knows only the bounds of Ninth Heaven above and the nadir of Yellow Clod below6 (Nine refers to the highest heaven and blue to the sky.36 once. She severed the feet of the giant sea-turtle to support the four limits and killed a black dragon to save the region of Chi (one of the nine)6. But they reserve a full interpretation knowing from experience that a sage of this language must have stories to tell about this passage that would take days to record./ When one ponders her [Nu Kua‟s] achievement.. free and easy.

Nu Kua smelted five-colour stone to restore the blue sky6. And she piled up ashes from burned reeds to dam the uncontrolled waters6. the themes and values can be developed. Savage reptiles died and people of Chuan [Hsu] lived. The sky tilted toward the northwest. Fires raged fiercely and could not be extinguished. For example: in the Chinese flood myth. Silently. Violent birds seized the old and weak in their talons. four poles fall ending the separation of earth and sky. Savage beasts devoured the people of Chuan [Hsu](people of the sky or sky god)6. She bears the Jade Tablet Insignia of Death (a sign of having power over death). and her outer steed is the Green Dragon. while yellow to the earth).

This corresponds to the tunnelling of the Polynesian Maui to steal the fire from the Underworld. There is enough correlation between North America. A saving island is needed. where animals bring up mud from the sea floor where the land is formed on the turtles back. Ancient China does the same with a three-legged giant turtle dragging its tail and an owl carrying mud (of a magic nature) in its beak (Birrell. P. Kun is killed by exposure. 1997.37 that is why the rivers overflowed and silt and soil came to rest there (Birrell. 230). Kun was left to die of exposure on Feather Mountain. 250). the flood figure mediating the divine law. Birrell expresses that the flood mythic hero Kun. 1997. Birrell continues describing a flood myth deity named Sui-jen. 244). More over. creation as the model of heaven conferred with power as heaven and earth unit and brought into motion as heaven and earth divide (Birrell. Thus. 1997. 233). Kung Kung stirred the waters into a rushing flood so that they pounded against Hollow Mulberry6 (Birrell. 1997. Pp. Yu is likened to Nu Kua as the one chosen to restore the order of things. the North American and Polynesian flood myth bears the same four motifs of the Chinese classics: a personal God rewarding and punishing. a Morning and Evening Star where the twins represent the struggle within the spirit on the individual. The mythological parallels with the tangata manu birdman ceremony of Easter Island‘s Orongo is staggering. And In the era of Shun. Having severed the feet of the world turtle. 239-40). the Chinese flood hero. like Tawhaki. who was the fire god (Birrell. meaning waters (Birrell. Breathing soil represents the design of the first man forever regenerated in descendents. 1997. Here we have a Yin/Yang motif. A few parallels are drawn in the deified maize plant rising from the turtles back in ancient Maya. in North America. who with the help of the creatures performs a theft of god‘s breathing soil. P. P. P. 232). This makes sense in terms of the broken pillar causing the waters to rise and fall while the Earth and Sky are pressed together. Birrell finds the flood myths in ancient China in 19 separate accounts with four different versions (Birrell. Turtle Island. Pp. 229-230). Pp. Kung Kung‟s (kung meaning merit) name is used in the flood motif in a play on words with kiung. Yu is then commission to spread out the breathing soil to the nine provinces (Birrell. meaning Driller Man. Birrell notes that in this mythic flood the corners of the Earth are nine fathoms deep (Birrell P. a mythic place in Chinese lore of a year gathering place of bird flocks which became a sign of regeneration (Birrel. deals with the nine roots or fathoms required of flood or merit to reach heaven.

These four worlds of humanity are mentioned in the Vedic Laws of Manu. Lord of the East. One of the religious groups of the day was seriously spreading the rumor. More recently my own children spoke of the end of the world date of December 21. Together they travel the Underworld to retrieve the bones of the dead of the former world in order to recreate life in the new world. The hysteria drew up more of a playful energy among the children than out right fear. But September 5th came and went. 71: . Lord of the Dawn. 2012.41 Quetzalcoatl is also called the Great Twin. It is through these world life-cycles that the deities find the time and place to reach down and enter the world of the Maya. life and rebirth and Xolotl is the Evening Star. but the world remained. When I was a child on September 5th. Lord of the West. This prophecy stems from the Mayan long count calendar that has a 5125 year cycle ending on that day. The end of the world day is called 13 baktun and will mark the transition of humanity from the Mayan‘s fourth world to the fifth world. a hysteria went about our schoolyard that this was the day that world would end.

Based on the Mayan symbolism of these words the following translation is offered: It is finished on 13 baktun Lord Yellow Sun Will appear To display the 9 gods of the Underworld In the plaza Mayan cosmology relates the plaza with the Dark Rift of the Milky Way. The sacrifice of Quetzalcoatl (the feathered serpent) occurs at this crossroads. Bolon Yokte.

The body is used as the earth. Teotihuacan.44 It represents birth (green) and death (red). This symbol also corresponds with the Cygnus constellation as described in the Introduction above. it represents Tonatiuh. the Sun of the Fifth Era. This crocodile was a constant eater throughout the Aztec deluge. the pathway of the hero Twins. The separation requires a decapitation of the jaw of the crocodile Cipactli. Cipactli is shown here from the Borgonicus Codex with missing lower jaw and ears of corn growing from her back6: The Mesoamerican Cipactli is similar to the Makara of ancient Indian mythology shown below6: . but also the bringer of earthquakes6. where in pure darkness the upper realm was pressed against the earth with no sky to separate them. which is likely akin to Morning and Evening Star symbols. The hero twins begin to separate earth from sky in the opening of this Fifth World. When the day sign Four Movement (4 Ollin) is given. the beginning and the end. but now becomes a harmless abode for humanity to once again thrive upon. Cipactli is not only the deity representing the earth. This era began at Quetzalcoatl‘s patron city.
45 This Indian and Southeast Asian makara in its aspect as kirtimukha. the Face of Glory. named Chac:6 . Shiva enables the destructive potential of the waters falling upon the earth to become a source of life for all living things. The Indian deluge myth relates that the waters of Ganges poured down on the head of Shiva. The pearls represent the succession of the new generations and seeds. which will be born onto the new earth and live in harmony with it. the Hindi word for crocodile. Illustrated below is a similar water deity of Mesoamerica. Makara or water monster and mukha or face is related to mugger. is illustrated below with the great deluge and pearls coming out of his jawless mouth6. whose hair caused the waters to form rivers on the earth.
much like the Hopi. The Chac carvings of Mesoamerica appear to resemble the Indian elephant for the very purpose of leaving an ancient memory of contact between the sages across the continents. He has been likened to the Feathered Serpent. It is carved here at Uxmal without a lower jaw. north is white. remarkably similar to the Face of Glory in India. Kukulcan (Quetzalcoatl)6. which combines fire with his water symbol to mean a sacred war. west is black). is deity of rain and crops. . Chac may occur in four aspects as the old men of the four quarters of the earth. with each direction assigned his own color (east is red. Chac holds a snake lightning-bolt. The Mayan Chac also has the long nose of the Hindu Makara. south is yellow. The stonework below from the ancient Mayan site of Labna contains the Chac ‗elephantlike trunk‘ rearing back with the vision serpent jaws opening to reveal an ancestor. The illustrations of Chac below from Chichen Itza and Uxmal so much resemble the Indian elephant that there must have been a sharing of mythology in the ancient past6.46 The Mayan Chac.
the abode of the ancestors6. As a result an ancestor could travel through the snake from the land of the dead to the land of the living.47 There is a purpose the elder sages of the past used combined a foreign elephant image with a local vision serpents. There is further confirmation of pre-Columbian contact between India and Mesoamerica by the presence of American corn in Indian Temples6: . In the Mayan bloodletting ritual. any child will tell that these are elephant tusks. one for the underworld and one for the earth. First. The snake itself is considered a representation of the Milky Way. That is. Modern research would deny any correlation. as the night dissipates into dawn. consider the meaning of vision serpents in Mesoamerican art:6 Quetzalcoatl as the bearer of the mask of Chac has an appearance and role similar to the vision serpent. In the vision the smoke would form into a snake with two heads. the snake sheds its skin and the feathers of the quetzal appear as raise of the dawn. Yet. paper stained with the blood of the participant would be burned and the smoke would rise up with the hope of producing a vision. The Plumed Serpent image makes perfect sense when the Milky Way is regarded as the snake.
Further research into the sea trade and ocean travel capabilities and history of ancient Phoenicia will clarify the means of transport of these trade items and related cultural diffusion6.48 The corn is present in various 12th Century ce temples in the Indian state of Karnataka. The ship of serpent from Quetzalcoatl‘s journey may well have been a Phoenician vessel with serpent like oars as below6: . Such evidence solidifies the representation of Indian elephants on the stonework of ancient America.
the sails of his ship were likened to butterfly wings and his appearance as a bearded foreigner with long robes caused the Mayans and Aztecs to believe he was the prophecy fulfilled of the return of Quetzalcoatl. Like Quetzecoatl-Chac of ancient Mexico. Shiva swallowed it to save the world from the poison and so his throat turned blue. As the churning continued a grey-blue soup of poison rose to the surface. also taking on Rudra‘s role as storm god6. He was known as a traveller carrying a staff or even as a butterfly. named Airavata. When Cortez came to Mesoamerica.49 The Mayan word for serpent. In ancient India. the story of the Churning of the Ocean also produces a snow-white elephant. Shiva is the blue god of India. Indra. to ride into battle accompanied by a dog. in which the deity of war. coatl. . Quetzalcoatl travelled on a ship of poles. adopted as his own. also means a pole.
He also has a third eye that shoots flames. Thou hast a (red) eye on thy forehead…. Quetzalcoatl also compares with Indra in his journey to retrieve bones of the Underworld accompanied by the dog-masked Xolotl. not unlike the lightning serpent of Chac. The Indian wild elephant is associated with Vivasvat. destruction and regeneration of life. O Rudra. What is most interesting is the vision serpent story associated with Shiva6: In the Mahabharata. The chips that fell from his body . the warrior. I worship thee to obtain thy grace…. „the illustrious Hara‟. but also used as a weapon during floods and storms. This combat in which I was engaged with thee (arose) from ignorance….

This avenue used to be a river cascading down steps all along its path. He made a set of sacred stone tablets. for this reason I will place in your hands these sacred stone tablets. into which he breathed his teachings. he coined the Hunab. 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. The following diagram contains some of these Hunab measures: . The following initial results illustrate various legible Hebrew words related to the Kabbalah world tree produced by the street and building measurements of Teotihuacan and will reveal the land of origin of Quetzalcoatl in a verifiable manner.65 with the Sapphire (Blue) Stone.

Harleston believed that one of the reasons for a city with these specific designs was to illustrate various celestial distances. (and this was just a hunch) influence on the design of this city may have come from anywhere in the world.
