WHIRLING RAINBOW PROPHECY… a message of hope!
Conscious Youth… there is hope for your generation and the next 7 generations to come. This has been prophesied by many wise traditional elders of the past. They predicated a time when people from all corners of the earth would work together to bring about peace on this earth. Inter-tribal unity!
We see this happening now via the efforts of our spiritual elders to bring about unity among the tribes. Your contributions in this effort are crucial. Join us!
“We have much to share, one tradition with the other. The day is here when my people, and all people, must look beyond the affairs of the Red or White race and consider the Human Race. Having traveled many times around the world, I can only conclude that we are truly One people who could only benefit by meeting together to work out the solutions to the benefit of all, including the many creatures, birds, animals and plant life which were given to us by the Great Spirit, the Creator of all.” “We must all share in the wisdom teachings & instructions of our ancestors who knew & practiced the secrets that kept our sacred Earth Mother clean and in balance & good health.” -Mad Bear (Tuscarora)
The founder of the American Indian Unity Movement was Mad Bear Anderson. He was of Tuscarora (Iroquois) lineage. Mad Bear’s pinnacle life accomplishment was the September 1978 Cross-Cultural Spiritual Summit Conference that he & Doug Boyd co-created. This gathering, the first of its kind, brought together medicine people from all 4 directions. It was Mad Bear’s vision to create this conference as a platform where prophecies & myth from all cultures would be shared & compared.
This Cross-Cultural conference differed from the previous Hopi “Gathering of Indian Brothers”, since it also openly bridged the indigenous wisdom teachers with people of European descent who also held indigenous wisdom teachings of their own. Tribes from all 4 directions were invited & attended. This coming together, a full & complete mending of the Sacred Hoop was prophesized via the “Whirling” Rainbow Prophecy, a prophecy which many tribes share in common.
“There will come a day when people of all races, colors and creeds will put aside their differences. They will come together in love, joining hands in unification, to heal the Earth and all her children. They will move over the Earth like a great Whirling Rainbow, bringing peace, understanding and healing everywhere they go. Many creatures thought to be extinct or mythical will resurface at this time; the great trees that perished will return almost overnight. All living things will flourish, drawing sustenance from the breast of our Mother, the Earth. The great spiritual teachers who walked the Earth and taught the basics of the truths of the Whirling Rainbow Prophecy will return and walk amongst us once more, sharing their power and understanding with all. We will learn how to see and hear in a sacred manner. Men and women will be equals in the way Creator intended them to be; all children will be safe anywhere they want to go. Elders will be respected and valued for their contributions to life. Their wisdom will be sought out. The whole human race will be called The People and there will be no more war, sickness or hunger forever.” -Navajo & Hopi prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow
When author Jamie Sams lived in Mexico and worked with the Grandmothers (Dreamtime Buffalo Society or Sisterhood) they acknowledged that “the prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow was very specific. When the Time of the White Buffalo approaches, the third generation of the White Eyes’ children will grow their hair and speak of love as the healer of the Children of the Earth. These (Hippy) children will seek new ways of understanding themselves and others. They will wear feathers and beads and paint their faces. They will seek the Elders of the Red Race and drink their wisdom. These white-eyed children will be a sign that the Ancestors are returning in white bodies, but they are Red on the inside. They will learn to walk with the Earth Mother in balance again and reform the ideas of the white chiefs.” Jamie further commented, “The generation of Flower Children have moved through this part of the prophecy and some have remained on the Sacred Path. Others were lost for a while and are now returning to the natural way of being. Some were disillusioned and have forgotten the high ideals that gave them life when their hearts were young, but others still are waking up & quickening into remembering.”
Jamie recalls Grandmother Cisi (Kiowa) referring to the beginning of this Fifth World as “the wobbly pony” that on being born would try to use his legs. She said that the wobble would be felt by the Earth Mother and the changes would occur in the soil and the waters. Inside the Children of the Earth, the wobble would create rolling emotions and feelings that would bring the quickening and the remembering.
Colorful dreams would be brought into the Sleep time and Dreamtime dreams of these newborn Warriors of the Rainbow and they would begin to learn how to walk in balance. The changes in our Earth Mother would create fear in her children, which would later lead to the understanding and unity of our planet; creating One People.”
Both Cisi & Grandmother Berta (also Kiowa) talked about the change in feelings the Children of the Earth would have during the wobble or healing process as the Whirling Rainbows permeated their dreams. They said, “Many will remember their purpose for being on this Earth walk and will learn to develop their gifts to assist the whole of humanity. Truth will shatter the bonds of separation and goodness will prevail. Some details of Earth changes will come into the dreams of those who are being warned to move where they will be safe.
Others will be told that their talents will be needed in areas where the changes occur. Everyone will have to trust their personal vision and follow their hearts in order to assist the whole. Each individual person will be able to use their gifts with joy and share equally in the bounty created by all those working together.”
Chief Crazy Horse (Oglala Sioux) was quoted as saying the following words as he sat smoking the Sacred Pipe with Sitting Bull for the last time, four days before he was assassinated in September 1877.
“The Red Nation shall rise again and it shall be a blessing for a sick world. A world filled with broken promises, selfishness and separations. A world longing for light again. I see a time of Seven Generations when all the colors of mankind will gather under the Sacred Tree of Life and the whole Earth will become one circle again. In that day, there will be those among the Lakota who will carry knowledge and understanding of unity among all living things and the young white ones will come to those of my people and ask for this wisdom. I salute the light within your eyes where the whole Universe dwells. For when you are at that center within you and I am that place within me, we shall be one.”-Chief Crazy Horse (Oglala Sioux)
Here are numerous examples of the Rainbow related Prophecies given by the Elders of various tribes.
“In the time of the Seventh Fire, a New People would emerge. They would retrace their steps to find the wisdom that was left by the side of the trail long ago. Their steps would take them to the Elders, who they would ask to guide them on their journey. If the New People remain strong in their quest, the sacred drum will again sound its voice.” “There will be an awakening of the people, and the sacred fire will again be lit. At this time, the light-skinned race will be given a choice between two roads. One road is the road of greed and technology without wisdom or respect for life. This road represents a rush to destruction. The other road is spirituality, a slower path that includes respect for all living things.” “If we choose the spiritual path, we can light yet another fire, an Eight Fire, and begin an extended period of Peace and healthy growth.” -Grandfather William Commanda (Algonquin)
“As Native Americans, we believe the Rainbow is a sign from the Spirit in all things. It is a sign of the union of all people, like one big family. The unity of all humanity, many tribes and peoples, is essential.” -Thomas Banyacya (Hopi)
“This difficult time has seen the beginning of a new nation of multi-colored beings. The seeds of the four directions have mixed together to create the first Rainbow people. It is written in time and in the memory of the Indian peoples that our sun will rise again, that we will be able to re-establish our culture: its arts, sciences, mathematics and religion. Mayan knowledge will come forward again. It is for this reason that we, of the Amerindian communities, are once again uniting to re-establish our entire culture.” – Hunbatz Men (Mayan Elder/Daykeeper)
“There is truth in the prophecies of the Rainbow and the Rainbow people. People from all of the Americas will unite with people from all the other nations, and they will realize that we are all family, brothers and sisters.” “This is not my personal vision, but the cosmic vision presented by all the Elders, a vision that we all share.” -Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez aka Wandering Wolf (Maya)
“Among the few who possess inner strength to resist the mass unconsciousness will rise a new neo-indigenous people. Prophecies foretell of a people who will rise from earth’s ashes like the Thunderbird, symbolizing rebirth. They will bring balance and harmony back to Mother Earth. The first of these beings will come as teachers & storytellers to remind us of ancient truths of the star people and beyond. They will be pathfinders leading the way to a new universe, a new reality. Great leaders, Warriors & Shamans of many nations will be born and they will cleanse the earth for rebirth.” “Next will come the Planters sowing seeds of truth, justice & freedom. The Storytellers, Warriors & Planters will live in the way of the Great Spirit and teach ways to keep Mother of the Ground sacred forevermore. They will be called Rainbow Warriors for they will gather the four sacred directions, all distinctly separate but forever connected in the Circle of Life.” -Lee Standing Bear Moore (Cherokee, Manataka American Indian Council)
“This is the 8th Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long (hippies) like my people, come and join the tribal nations to learn their ways & wisdom.” -White Feather (Hopi)
“As a tree in the forest needs all the organisms in its interdependent ecosystem to survive, likewise the human race requires intricate cultural diversity to survive in a healthy way.” -Tim Ballingham (Mad Bear’s apprentice)
A detailed Rainbow Prophecy was told by “Eyes of Fire” an old & wise Cree woman from a century ago.
“One day, because of the white mans’ or Yo-ne-gis’ greed, there would come a time, when the Earth is being ravaged and polluted, the forests being destroyed, and the birds would fall from the air, the waters would be blackened, the fish would be poisoned in the streams, and the trees would no longer be. Mankind as we would know it would all but cease to exist. There would come a time when the keepers of the legend, stories, culture rituals, and myths, and all the Ancient Tribal Customs would be needed to restore us to health, making the Earth green again. They would be mankind’s key to survival; they were the “Warriors of the Rainbow”. There would come a day of awakening when all the peoples of all the tribes would form a New World of Justice, Peace, Freedom and recognition of the Great Spirit.
The “Warriors of the Rainbow” would spread these messages and teach all peoples of the Earth or “Elohi”. They would teach them how to live the “Way of the Great Spirit”. They would tell them of how the world today has turned away from the Great Spirit and that is why our Earth is “sick”.
The “Warriors of the Rainbow” would show the peoples that this “Ancient Being” (the Great Spirit), is full of love and understanding, and teach them how to make the Earth or “Elohi” beautiful again. These Warriors would give the people principles or rules to follow to make their path right with the world. These principles would be those of the Ancient Tribes. The Warriors of the Rainbow would teach the people of the ancient practices of Unity, Love and Understanding. They would teach of Harmony among people in all four corners of the Earth.
Like the Ancient Tribes, they would teach the peoples how to pray to the Great Spirit with love that flows like the beautiful mountain stream, and flows along the path to the ocean of life. Once again, they would be able to feel joy in solitude and in councils. They would be free of petty jealousies and love all mankind as their brothers, regardless of color, race or religion. They would feel happiness enter their hearts, and become as one with the entire human race. Their hearts would be pure and radiate warmth, understanding and respect for all mankind, Nature and the Great Spirit.
They would once again fill their minds, hearts, souls, and deeds with the purest of thoughts. They would seek the beauty of the Master of Life, the Great Spirit! They would find strength and beauty in prayer and the solitude of life.
Their children would once again be able to run free and enjoy the treasures of Nature and Mother Earth. Free from the fears of toxins and destruction, wrought by the Yo-ne-gi and his practices of greed.
The rivers would again run clear, the forests would be abundant and beautiful, the animals and birds would be replenished. The powers of the plants and animals would again be respected and conservation of all that is beautiful would become a way of life.
The poor, sick and needy would be cared for by their brothers and sisters of the Earth. These practices would again become a part of their daily lives.
The leaders of the people would be chosen in the old way, not by their political party, or who could speak the loudest, boast the most, or by name calling or mud-slinging, but by those whose actions spoke the loudest. Those who demonstrated their love, wisdom and courage and those who showed that they could and did work for the good of all, would be chosen as the leaders or chiefs.
They would be chosen by their “quality” and not the amount of money they had obtained. Like the thoughtful and devoted “Ancient Chiefs”, they would understand the people with love, and see that their young were educated with the love and wisdom of their surroundings. They would show them that miracles can be accomplished to heal this world of its ills, and restore it to health and beauty.
The tasks of these “Warriors of the Rainbow” are many and great. There will be terrifying mountains of ignorance to conquer and they shall find prejudice and hatred. They must be dedicated, unwavering in their strength, and strong of heart. They will find willing hearts and minds that will follow them on this road of returning Mother Earth to beauty and plenty, once more.
The day will come, it is not far away!
The day that we shall see how we owe our very existence to the people of all tribes that have maintained their culture and heritage. Those that have kept the rituals, stories, legends and myths alive. It will be with this knowledge, the knowledge that they have preserved, that we shall once again return to “harmony” with Nature, Mother Earth and mankind. It will be with this knowledge that we shall find our Key to our Survival.” -Eyes of Fire (Cree)
The legend of the Rainbow Warriors is quintessentially American; however the general concept of a coming Golden Age and the unity of people is a global understanding.
In Steven McFadden’s book, “Legend of the Warrior Rainbow”, he talks about William Commanda (Algonguin Elder) being keeper of the “Primstaven”, a carved wooded staff from the Vikings that was given to the Indian people more than a thousand years ago. The Primstaven describes prophecies of the Viking people which essentially assert that “although different people have different ways of understanding it, there is only one Creator, and all people, no matter their color or their religious traditions, come from this Creator. Some day the carvings on the stick declare, all people will recognize and honor this simple truth.”
“There are a lot of differences out there in life. I know for sure that the Creator loved diversity. I can see it in the creation. Look at how many different kinds of flowers. Look at how many different kinds of grass. Look at all the different kinds of trees. Look at all the different insects. When I start seeing how diverse this creation is, I know that the Creator loves the diversity. Look at how deep and how vast the diversity is.” -Mad Bear (Tuscarora)
