We must do what we conceive to be the
right thing and not bother our heads or
burden our souls with whether we will be
successful. Because if we don’t do the
right thing, we will be doing the wrong
thing and we will just be a part of the
disease and not a part of the cure.

Brothers and sisters, we bring to your
thought and minds that right-minded human
beings seek to promote above all else the
life of all things. We direct to your
minds that peace is not merely the absence
of war, but the constant effort to
maintain harmonious existence between all
peoples, from individual to individual,
and between humans and the other beings of

OUR WORLD WILL BE SAVED
Dan Evehema, elder
of Hopi Nation
The timing is now to reveal the last
and instructions to mankind.
We were told to settle permanently here in
Hopiland where we met the Great Spirit and
to wait for Older Brother, who went east,
to return to us.
When he returns to this land he will place
his stone tablets side by side to show all
the world that they are our true brothers
- when the road in the sky has been
fulfilled and when the inventing of
something, in Hopi means, gourd of ashes,
a gourd that, when it drops upon the earth
will boil everything within a large space
and nothing will grow for a very long
We were told that THREE HELPERS who were
commissioned by the Great Spirit to help
Hopi bring about the peaceful life on
earth would appear to help us and that we
should not change our homes, our
ceremonials, our hair, because the true
helpers might not recognize us as the true
So we have been waiting all these years.
It is known that our True White Brother,
when he comes, will bring with him the
sacred stone tablets.
With him there will be two great ones,
both very wise and powerful.
One will have a symbol or sign which
represents purity and is Female, a
producer of life.
The third one, or the second one of the
two helpers to our True White Brother,
will have a sign of a symbol of the SUN.
He, too, will be very wise and powerful.
One will have the symbol of the moja, or
cross. We have in our sacred Kachina
ceremonies a gourd rattle which is still
in use today with these symbols of these
powerful helpers of our True Brother.
It is also prophesied that, if .... the
three helpers chosen by the Creator fulfil
their sacred mission, and even if there
are only one, two, or three of the true
Hopi who remain holding fast to the last
ancient teaching and instructions the
Great Spirit, Massauu will appear before
all, and our World will be saved.
The three will lay out a new life plan
which leads to everlasting life and peace.
The earth will become new as it was from
the beginning. Flowers will bloom again,
wild game will return to barren lands, and
there will be abundance of food for all.
Those who are saved will share
everything equally and they all will
recognize Great Spirit and speak one
The Earth and myself
are of one mind.

RAINBOWS OF HOPE
That small untoward clan, which knows the
divine call of the spirit through the
brain, and the secret whisper of the soul
in the heart, and forever perceives the
veil of mystery and the rainbows of hope
upon our human horizons, which hears and
sees, and yet turns wisely, meanwhile, to
the life of the green earth, of which we
are part, to the common kindred of living
things with which we are at one.
THE WILL THAT IS IN HEAVEN AND THE LOVE
THAT IS IN EARTH BE ONE. AND MAY THE MIND
THAT DIVIDED US CATACLYSMICALLY AGAINST
OUR-SELVES, EACH OTHER AND THE EARTH, BE
SUBJECTED TO THE WILL OF THE FATHER AND
THE LOVE OF THE MOTHER, SO THAT GREED,
LUST, AND THE HUNGER FOR POWER THAT
DOMINATES HUMAN LIFE TODAY MAY PERISH
FOREVER, AND HUMANITY AND NATURE AGAIN BE
UNITED AND AT PEACE
Sir Laurens Van Der Post
I HAVE A DREAM that my
four little children will one day live in
a nation where they will not be judged by
the colour of their skin but by the
content of their character. When we let
freedom ring, when we let it ring from
every village and hamlet, from every state
and every city, we will be able to speed
up that day when all God’s children, black
and white, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants
and Catholics, will be able to join hands
and sing in the words of that old Negro
last. Free at last!
Thank God Almighty, WE
ARE FREE AT LAST
