Helena P. Blavatsky, Russian Seer
We are at the close of the cycle of 5,000 years of the present Aryan Kali Yuga or dark age. This will be succeeded by an age of light. Even now under our very eyes, the new Race or Races are preparing to be formed, and that is in America that the transformation will take place, and has already silently commenced. This Race will be altered in mentality and will move toward a more perfect spiritual existence.
That the periodical sinking and reappearance of mighty continents, now called Atlantean and Lemurian by modern writers, is not fiction will be demonstrated. It is only in the 20th century that portions, if not the whole, of the present work will be vindicated.
A world destruction as happened to Atlantis 11,000 years ago… instead of Atlantis all of England and parts of NW European coast will sink into the sea, in contrast, the sunken Azores region, the Isle of Poseidonis, will again be raised from the sea.
Wovoka, Paiute Prophet
When I was in the other world with the Old Man, I saw all the people who have died. But they were not sad. They were happy while engaged in their old-time occupations and dancing, gambling, and playing ball. It was a pleasant land, level, without rocks or mountains, green all the time, and rich in abundance of game and fish. Everyone was forever young.
After showing me all of heaven, God told me to go back to Earth and tell His people you must be good and love one another, have no quarreling, and live in peace with the whites; that you must work, and not lie or steal; and that you must put an end to the practice of war.
If you faithfully obey your instructions from on high, you will at last be reunited with your friends in a renewed world where there would be no more death or sickness or old age. First, though, the Earth must die. Indians should not be afraid, however. For it will come alive again, just like the sun died and came alive again. In the hour of tribulation, a tremendous earthquake will shake the ground. Indians must gather on high ground. A might flood shall follow. The water and mud will sweep the white race and all Indian skeptics away to their deaths. Then the dead Indian ancestors will return, as will the vanished buffalo and other game, and everything on Earth will once again be an Indian paradise.
Count Louis Hamon (Cheiro)
Germany and Italy will war against France and England. In the coming 50 years an earthquake zone will develop in NE Pacific coast of Peru up through to the Arctic regions. Eastern cities of the U.S. will be affected, and parts of New York will be destroyed in 50-100 years. A series of earthquakes will cause the Azores to rise and Atlantis will resurface and be explored.
Nicholas K. Roerich, Scholar (1930s)
On a five-year expedition to the East, Roerich recorded the following predictions of Tibetan Lamas. This information is from The Peoples Almanac by David Wallechinsky and Irving Wallace.
First will begin an unprecedented war of all nations. Afterward, brother shall rise against brother. Oceans of blood shall flow. They shall forget the meaning of the word Teacher. But then shall the Teachers appear and in all corners of the world shall be heard the true teaching. To this word of truth shall the people be drawn, but those who are filled with darkness and ignorance shall set obstacles. As a diamond, glows the light on the tower of the Lord of Shambhala. (interpreted as the great spiritual kingdom, according to the Lamas.)
One stone in his ring is worth more than all the world’s treasures. Even those who by accident help the Teachings of Shambhala will receive in return a hundredfold. Already many warriors of the teaching or truth are reincarnated. Only a few years shall elapse before everyone shall hear the mighty steps of the Lord of the New Era. And one can already perceive unusual manifestations and encounter unusual people. Already they open the gates of knowledge and ripened fruits are falling from the trees.
The banner of Shambhala shall encircle the central lands of the Blessed One. Those who accept him shall rejoice. And those who deny him shall tremble. The denier shall be given over to justice and shall be forgotten. And the warriors shall march under the banner of Maitreya [the coming spiritual leader of the world].
Guboo Ted Thomas, Australian Aboriginal Tribal Elder
About a couple of months before that I seen this great wave going. And I tell them over there about this wave. It wasn’t a tidal wave; this was a spiritual wave. So, to me, I believe that the Dreamtime is going to be that. I believe the revival is going to start in Australia when we’re Dreaming. It’s the hummingbee that I’m talking about. And love. We’ve got to learn to love one another. So, you see, that’s really what’s going to happen to the earth. We’re going to have tidal waves. We’re going to have earthquakes. That’s coming because we don’t consider this land as our Mother. We’ve taken away the balance, and we’re not putting it back. I look at the bush, and those trees are alive. They’re not dead, they’re alive. And they want you to cuddle them.
Tim Sikyea, Yellowknife Tribe
Many of the dreams or visions don’t necessarily mean the end; they could also indicate a change. Our people say that people who are not spiritually in tune can’t adapt to this change. They won’t have the necessary physical, mental and spiritual strength to change themselves. It is being said that humanity will become mad.
There will be an energy or something similar that will influence the atmosphere. As a consequence, the pressure in our brains will increase by 35 percent. But people who have become spiritually clear and accept these approaching energies of the cosmos will be able to be secure from this human cleansing process.
Seventy to 80 percent of humanity are not spiritually but materialistically oriented. That’s why they won’t be able to endure this transformation; they will go mad. They will kill themselves and destroy everything around them. It will be like a madhouse. Probably, somebody will then push the famous button because of this.
Brave Buffalo, Brule Sioux Nation
According to the Sacred Hoop and the prophecies, it is time to share this ancient wisdom. It is time for the Great Purification. We are at a point of no return. The two-legged are about to bring destruction to life on Earth. It’s happened before, and it’s about to happen again. The Sacred Hoop shows how all things go in a circle. The old become new; the new becomes old. Everything repeats. White people have no culture. Culture is having roots in the Earth. People without culture don’t exist very long because Nature is God. Without a connection to Nature, the people drift, grow negative, destroy themselves. In the beginning we had one mind, and it was positive, a thing of beauty, seeing beauty everywhere.
The Earth People never wrote anything down and had no written language. They knew that, if they wrong anything down, it would be disastrous. If you write something down, you don’t have to remember it. And mind goes off into unconsciousness. It becomes negative, or unconscious force.
Sun Bear, Chippewa Medicine Man
These changes might not be convenient for humans, but the earth will make them anyway. As a dog shakes itself to get rid of fleas, the earth will generate earthquakes, volcanoes and climactic changes to rid itself of surplus and troublesome humans. If it is necessary that a lot of people die off during the major changes, and that the people that survive are conscious people that are responsible for the earth and are living on it in harmony and love and respect, then that is what is supposed to happen…
The people who will survive will be those who love life and affirm life in every way they can. They will be people who are willing to make a conscious change in the way they view life and in their actions toward all creation. They will not be those sitting with their rifles over a can of beans. The survivors will be people reaching out for another level of consciousness and seeking communication with the Creator and the Earth. They will be people living close to the earth far from large cities who are able to grow and harvest or gather their own food from the wild.
I’m trying to reach out and create a larger group of people who are in harmony with the earth. These people won’t get wiped out in the process of the earth changes. If you know where to be and how to prepare, this can be a very comfortable, interesting and exciting time.
The 1989 San Francisco quake and the 1993 Northridge one were just warnings of much larger ones that will rock California. Sun Bear, who was part Chippewa Indian, medicine chief of the Bear Tribe, and a teacher and visionary said, in 1987, “The earth is an intelligent living being! Before any major changes ever happen upon the Earth Mother, it has warned people. . . . You’re going to see major changes here. When I asked the Spirit about the earthquakes, and whether these things could be changed, and what would happen? Spirit said it’s already sealed. It’s already happening…
A volcano that will devastate the Seattle area is foretold is an ancient prophecy from Washington State’s Puyallup tribe, which says, “The time will come when Little Sister will speak, and Grandfather will answer. And the land will be swept clean to the ocean.” Sun Bear explained that Donald Matheson, a leader of the Puyallup tribe, moved his people to Idaho in 1979 because he believed it was time for this prophecy to be fulfilled. In March 1980, the mountain that we call little sister began to whisper. May 18th of 1980, the Little Sister spoke with a cubic mile of mountain that was spread over the northwest area, and many other parts of the world… “The Little Sister is called Mount St. Helens. Soon, the Grandfather is going to answer so much bigger. That one is called Mt. Rainier.” Indian prophecies also foretold worldwide environmental catastrophes such as the greenhouse effect, “changes in the seasons and in the weather, disappearance of wildlife, famine,” and the ozone hole, which was referred to as a “hole in our lodging.”
Chief John Ross, Keetoowah (Cherokee)
The Keetoowah people preferred to live in the mountains and along streams in harmony with nature. Searching for food occupied most of their time. They obtained food, shelter, clothing and other needs from nature’s bounty by hunting, gathering, and farming.
The Clan Law or Blood Law was the social structure for the Keetoowahs and practiced in a matrilineal arrangement, passing from the mother to the children. If a tribal member committed a crime such as murder, the Clan of the victim would avenge the death under the supervision of the oldest family member. If the slayer could not be found, a brother of the perpetrator could be substituted as a sacrifice to the law of retaliation. If this were not done, the spirit of the victim would not pass into the spirit world and would haunt the family. The Keetoowahs practiced a mixed system of private and public punishment.
When Hernando DeSoto discovered the Keetoowah people in 1540, there were sixty different and independent villages with each having a separate government and leaders. The whole tribe came together only in times of war and ceremonies. The tribal life was unchanged as late as 1710. When the White man’s influence arrived, it was slow at first but then spread rapidly. This created major changes with the tribal leadership shifting from priest to warrior. The Whites brought diseases, and many Keetoowah people died of mainly smallpox.
Fur trading was the most instrumental in creating change. The warriors became hunters and served as agents for fur trading. The tribal members pursued material possessions and wealth. They began purchasing farm animals, and equipment. Tribal members understandably were quickly drawn to trade goods. They had always relied on stone, wood, and other essentials. European goods of metal, glass and cloth were truly revolutionary innovations to the Keetoowah people. They saw the advantage of European goods and quickly came to value and demand the new materials.
With the tribe dependent on the European existence, the economic base greatly changed the structure of the Keetoowah life. The people became literate in the English language, attended schools in the east, then returned to assume leadership positions. The U.S. Government began negotiating with only the mixed-bloods, which formulated the United Cherokee Nation in 1777.
Opposition to the rapid changes in the tribal governmental structure resulted in the migration of many traditional groups. Chief Dragging Canoe and one thousand of his fullblood followers migrated to the western part of Tennessee and later to the State of Arkansas. The Keetoowah life was so structured that an opposing political faction was permitted to physically remove themselves from the main tribal government. Such removal occurred several times in the Keetoowah/Cherokee history.
The treaty of 1817 with the United States exchanged the lands in Tennessee for the lands in Arkansas. This gained the Keetoowahs a definite title to a territory. The treaty of 1819 established the boundaries.
In the Spring of 1819 Thomas Nuttall, a Naturalist, came up the Arkansas River, and gave his account of the Keetoowahs as he found them at that time. Quoting Nuttall, “In going up the stream, there were houses and farms on both banks of the River. The houses were decently furnished, and their farms were well fenced and stocked with cattle. They had everything they needed: food, clothes, water and good land.”
By the Treaty of 1828 the Keetoowah people were forced to exchange their lands in Arkansas for lands in Oklahoma. The Keetoowahs moved to Indian Territory in Oklahoma ten years prior to the forced removal (commonly known as the “Trail of Tears”) of the Cherokee Nation.
The word “Keetoowah” is the name which my people have always called themselves. The word Cherokee has no meaning in the language of my people. It is derived from a Muscogan Language, and its meaning is the “inhabitant of the cave country.” The word “Keetoowah” means “Principal People.”
The following legend of the Keetoowah people, which dates back to the beginning of time, has been passed orally by each generation.
Upon the creation of the Keetoowah people, the Creator gave them mysterious powers and placed them in large settlement on an island located in the Atlantic Ocean. There were other tribes on the island which attacked the Keetoowah people. Another tribe watched the fierce fighting from a mountain top. The leader of the tribe watched the valley ascend toward the Heaven. The smoke divided into three paths midway in the ascension an eagle was seen holding three arrows in its claws. The leader asked his warriors if the smoke and eagle were visible to them and they replied they were. The tribal leader then told his warriors not to attack the Keetoowah people because they were the Creator’s people, and they were very powerful. The tribe came down from the mountain and made friends with the Keetoowah people.
In later years, some of the medicine men of the tribe became selfish and used their powers to harm their own people. The Creator gave the powers to the medicine men to be used in the best interest of all the people. Other tribal members prayed to the Creator for direction and the Creator heard their prayers. The instruction was to move their fire away from the island and the medicine men. After the departure, the island sank into the ocean.
The people migrated north and settled in the southeastern part of what is now the United States. Many years later, again the medicine men became selfish and committed crimes against their own tribal members. The people gathered to discuss the solution to this problem, and it was decided that seven medicine men, one from each of the seven clans, would travel to a mountain top and pray. The seven medicine men went up to the mountain top and prayed. Soon a messenger from the Creator appeared and told them the Creator had heard their prayers and had great sympathy for them. The messenger told the medicine men their tribe would be called “Keetoowah” from that day forward.
The messenger revealed to them that a “white ball” would arrive from the east which would be an enemy to the people. The grandchildren of the Keetoowahs would point their feet to the west and great hardship would be placed upon them at the edge of the prairie. Their blood and families would be divided, and the enemy would not respect the Keetoowah people. The messenger revealed that a young leader would lead the Keetoowah people back to the east. However, if the Keetoowah people chose not to follow the Creator’s direction, they would continue further west to a sea of water and disappear forever. The Creator said, “If the Keetoowah people are destroyed or become extinct, then the end of the world will follow.”
The United Keetoowah Band of Cherokees are the only landless tribe in this country. This recognition is based on Congressional legislation, Bureau of Indian Affairs policies and the Federal Courts rulings made over the past several years. They have all ruled the Keetoowahs do not have a land base or a jurisdiction area.
The only alternative the Keetoowahs had was to move away from Oklahoma. This is what prompted the Keetoowahs to request the BIA to approve the UKB to establish a land base outside of Oklahoma and back to the east in Arkansas. The BIA central office in Washington DC gave approval on June 23, 1994 to establish a land base outside of Oklahoma into Arkansas. The Keetoowahs now have established a land base and also an office in Waldron, Arkansas.
Now, based on what you have heard, is the move back to the east purely by accident, or is this according to the prophecy?
Arthur C. Clarke, Writer
(from The People’s Almanac published in 1975): Centralization of work in cities will become obsolete with improved electronic communications. It will be possible to observe the past and the future through telepathy. We might be able to increase the intelligence of our domestic animals. All of the following might be possible: robots, death rays, artificial life, transmutation, immortality, invisibility, levitation, teleportation, and communication with the dead.
John Lansa, Hopi (Badger Clan)
It is bad that spacemen brought things back from the moon (In NASA experiments, three types of Earth bacteria died after exposure to an Apollo 11 core-tube soil sample from the moon. This resulted in quarantine procedures for astronauts). The Great Spirit says in the prophecy man will not go any further when he builds a city in the sky. People are planning to build a space station. The prophecy tells of the gradual devastation of the Earth’s natural processes because of human interference. The Hopis are today concerned for the whole planet and fear that every living thing might be destroyed. They are very worried about the spiritual centre and for all people to heed the instructions of the Great Spirit, otherwise everything will go down.
