Hopi Elders pass warnings and prophecies from generation to generation through oral traditions and reference to ancient rock pictographs and tablets.
Hopi Blue Star or Blue Kachina Prophecy
An ancient Hopi Indian prophecy states, “When the Blue Star Kachina makes its appearance in the heavens, the Fifth World will emerge”. This will be the Day of Purification. The Hopi name for the star Sirius is Blue Star Kachina. It will come when the Saquasohuh (Blue Star) Kachina dances in the plaza and removes his mask.
[Note: Reality is a metaphor in which we quest to find answers to the greater truth of who we are and why we are here. Something in our souls tells us that change is happening on a global consciousness level. The blue frequency is part of that. Sirius is Isis – Return to the feminine of higher frequency energies – Rebirth of Consciousness. Blue links to higher/future frequencies of consciousness as we spiral up through the patterns of Sacred Geometry. Blue – electricity – our reality as an electromagnetic energy grid program. Blue: Indigo children, the blue alien lady, Isis, the Pleiades, Sirius, blue galaxies, blue chakra, blue ray and ascended master, and much more that will come ‘out of the blue’.

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 Hopi life.
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
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 Island.
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 mercy.”
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 shorter.
“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 prophecy.
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 blue.
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 Moon rocks.
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
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 then:
“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 without wings.”
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 August, 1970.
Near Oraibi, Arizona, there is a petroglyph known as Prophecy Rock which symbolizes many Hopi prophecies. Its interpretation is:
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 return.
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 forever…
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.
Martin Gashweseoma Traditional Hopi Elder and Guardian of the Sacred Stone Tablets of the Fire Clan
Hopi prophecy warns that nothing should be brought back from the Moon. If this were 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 Moon rocks.
On August 7, 1970, a spectacular UFO sighting was witnessed by dozens of people and photographed by Chuck Roberts of the Prescott Courier. This occurred after a “UFO calling” by several Hopi Indians and was interpreted by some Hopis as being a partial fulfillment of a certain inscribed on Second Mesa, warning of the coming of Purification Day, when the true Hopi will be flown to other planets in “ships without wings.”
The survivors of the Great Deluge thousands of years ago split up into four groups that moved in all four directions. Only one group completed their journey — to the North Pole and back — under the guidance of a brilliant “star” in which the Great Spirit Massau’u traveled. Upon landing, he drew a petroglyph on Second Mesa, showing a maiden 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 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 Earth.
Martin Gasheseoma said recently that Hopi “elders told
us that when the plants blossom in the middle of winter, we
would need to go to Santa Fe to warn everyone of suffering and
destruction to come unless they change their ways. Last year,
in the middle of winter the plants began to blossom.”
How much suffering and destruction will accompany the time
of the purification, and what will be its end result? Martin
Gasheseoma foretells judgment in front of a big mirror and death
to those who are evil and wicked, with only a handful of people
surviving in every nation overseas who will then come to this
continent, “which we call heaven.”
“All the suffering going on in this country with the tornadoes, floods, and earthquakes is carried on the breath of Mother Earth because she is in pain,” says Roberta Blackgoat, an elder of the Independent Dineh (Navajo) Nation at Big Mountain. She explains that the Four Corners area is particularly sacred because it literally holds Mother Earth’s internal organs — coal and uranium which the Bureau of Indian Affairs has allowed the Peabody Coal Mine to mine. “They are trying to take her precious guts out for money,” says Blackgoat. “My grandfather told me that coal is like the liver, and uranium is both the heart and lungs of Mother Earth.” Hopi and Navajo traditionalists are fighting the mining.
These life and death matters will be determined when Pahana returns, and theories abound as to Pahana’s identity. Since Pahana has also been called the White Brother, and since he is to return from the east, Hopi of past centuries wondered whether he could have been a Spaniard or an Anglo and devised tests for determining the true Pahana, including knowledge of the greeting of brotherhood, similarities of religious beliefs, and possession of the missing piece of the stone tablet. Many were tested, including Catholics, Baptists, and Mormons, but none passed to the satisfaction of traditional Hopi.
