Email received on February 22, 2011:Hello, My name is ChoQosh Auh'ho'oh. I am a coastal indian elder and am
responsible for bringing "the HOPI TEN" from 5 elders in the village of
Oraibi Hopi Nation in April of 1993. You have made an error in that
date and wrote June 2ooo. It is one of many errors in your posting.
For the most part I did my best at presenting the information exactly
as I received it from native elders. People will properly research
thier information before printing or maybe not. If you are interested
in supporting the integrity of the material I am glad and relieved to
assist you. For starters, only the "Hopi Ten" came for the Hopis.
The other helpful sayings are from various elders (Iroquios, Seneca,
Polynisian, and others.
You know, words are sacred. They can guide and heal or " just
add to the confusion "...Grandmother Twylah Nitch.....Seneca Elder
Hopi Elders' Prophecy
Oraibi, Arizona, June 8, 2000 (???)
You have been telling people that this is the Eleventh
Hour, now you
must go back and tell the people that this is the
Hour. And there are
things to be considered. . . .
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for your leader.
Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said,
"This could be a
good time! There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and
swift that there are those who will be afraid. They
will try to hold on
to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart
and will suffer
greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders
say we must let
go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river,
keep our eyes
open, and our heads above the water.
And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate.
At this time in
history, we are to take nothing personally, least
of all ourselves. For
the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey
come to a halt.
The time of the one wolf is over. Gather yourselves!
Banish the word 'struggle' from your attitude and
your vocabulary. All
that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and
We are the ones we've been waiting for.
Hopi Elders Prophesy
To my fellow swimmers:
here is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift,
that there are those who will be afraid,
who will try to hold on to the shore,
they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.
Know that the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore,
push off into the middle of the river,
and keep our heads above water.
And I say see who is there with you and celebrate.
At this time in history we are to take nothing personally,
least of all ourselves, for the moment we do,
our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over.
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and
For we are the ones we have been waiting for.
I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything,
but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What
I can do,
I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God,
I will do.
