For the first time in history the Traditional Leaders of Shungopavi Village are speaking to the world. Radford Quamahongnewa, the Warrior Chief and Spokesman for the Leaders comes forward to the world with a warning. Water is life. Listen in with Host Rob Simone on Monday, July 02-2012 at 4:00pm Pacific time.

Radford Quamahongnewa

It was an honor to have Rob Simone come out to Hopi and witness the Traditional Hopi Katchina Dances in Shungopavi Village. Rob and I spent the weekend watching the Dance, which is the Ceremony, and experience the beauty of the Hopi people.

A few weeks later I called Rob a second time asking him to come out to Hopi as the lead interviewer for these historic interviews.

Thank you Rob Simone for taking the time to experience Hopi prior to the interviews. Thank you everyone who made it possible for me to travel to Hopi and facilitate these meetings. There is still more to come…….

HOPI BREAK SILENCE OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS WITH A WARNING TO THE WORLD TO CARE FOR WATER

Breaking silence for the first time in history the Traditional Hopi of Shungopavi Village are stepping into the public to speak to the world for the first time. They are asking us to educate ourselves on what is happening to water around the planet and stop the privatization of water.

In a recent article from Washington in the Navajo Hopi Observer, March 14th issue; Politicians are taking a public stand on the water rights of the Hopi and Dine speaking as though this is a money issue. This is an attempt to distract and discredit the rights to the water of the Hopi and Dine people.

The fact is that at this moment Traditional Hopi from all the Villages are gathering to discuss how they can stop this ‘sale’ of their rights and their children’s rights to water that they currently own. The government calls this a ‘water claim’ but who is claiming the water? The Hopi and Dine currently own the land and the right to this water. Now the United States Government, reaching as high as President Obama’s office, have taken a stand on purchasing this water from those who currently own it. This comes with directive from Obama himself to make this a top priority to complete this deal quickly.

In the article mentioned here they clearly state that water is becoming a valued commodity and that in the future this commodity will be even more valuable. So when the fields are dry and the wells have no water, the rivers stop flowing who will the Hopi and Dine look to to care for the children, their people? Who will the people that wasted the water that was sold to the corporations and sold to those who had no understanding of its value look to when they have hunger and thirst?

The fact is, Governments do not have the understanding of nature to ‘manage’ water, earth or air in a responsible manner. The water of the Hopi and Dine along with surrounding tribes is seen as a commodity by them. There to be sold to the highest bidder outside the Sacred Lands of the Tribal Traditional Peoples.

To the Traditional Peoples of the land, they see water as LIFE, the giver of life. Everything in this world that you have around you came in one way or another from water. Food grows with water, we bath in water, we drink water to stay alive, our clothes are made from the plants that need water to grow, our homes are built with materials that needed water to create them. NOTHING we have has not had water touch it.

This issue of the water rights of the Indigenous peoples around the world is becoming the focus of the people. If we allow the Governments around the world to TAKE the waters from the Indigenous, from the Hopi and Dine, then we give them the right to destroy our lands, our air our waters, our future. We will be continuing to walk on the path of self destruction.

Did the Governments think to ask the Traditional People “How can we manage this water for the future?”, no, they simply want to ‘buy it cheap’ and ‘sell it high’, thus destroying the future with no management of the natural world.

If we as a people allow this tragedy to unfold while turning away, then the future of starvation, death and destruction for our world and our children will be not a possibility but a reality. WE THE PEOPLE MUST PROTECT OUR RIGHT TO LIFE, if not for ourselves then for the future generations of our children.

In a message from the Mamos of Colombia after a meeting with the Dalai Lama the following statement was released.
This statement is focused on the issues the Mamos now face and the views they have of the meeting that took place in New Jersey, May of 2011. This was a historic meeting.

ANCIENT WISDOM – A SOLUTION FOR THE MODERN WORLD

ANCIENT WISDOM – A SOLUTION FOR THE MODERN WORLD
Two very significant gatherings of Indigenous Peoples took place this past month, one at Menla Mountain Retreat Center in the Catskill Mountains of New York from May 7th – 10th, followed by one at the International Peace Education Summit, held from May 13th – 15th in Newark, New Jersey. The spiritual authorities of Gonawindua (Sierra Madre de Santa Marta, Colombia) from the Kogui, Arhuaco, Wiwa, and Kankuamo tribes, came to meet with spiritual elders from around the world, carrying with them the message that “through living in accordance with natural law, we restore the natural balance of the Earth.”

The four peoples of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta are recognized worldwide as the “Elder Brothers” because of the ancient wisdom they hold, a wisdom they have kept intact for thousands of years without interference from the modern industrialized world. Their ancestral mission is to sustain the balance of the Earth, which they continue to enact through unbroken spiritual and traditional practices, guided in their communities by their spiritual authorities, the Mama (men) and Saga (women).

At Menla Mountain, delegations of elders from indigenous peoples of North and Central America and elders from the Dogon people of Africa gathered to meet with the Mama to council on the need to regain human accordance with Mother Earth. North American delegations were sent from several indigenous tribes. The Hopi, Mohawk, Dine, Anishinaabe, Algonquin, Lakota, Havasupai, and others were represented, including a member of the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. The Native American elders joined voices in the meeting circle and recognized the unifying message of the Elders Brothers. The gathering was mutually interpreted as the fulfillment of a prophecy shared by all tribes present that the Elder and Younger Brother (a term used to refer to those of us raised in modern societies) would seek each other out in a time of great planetary imbalance. All present at Menla agreed that the restoration of balance is essential to world peace and to the sustenance of a healthy planet.

At the International Peace Education Summit, the Mama and a delegation of Hopi spiritual elders met with His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama as foreseen in a divination by the Mama in 2005, which had revealed that this meeting would mark a major turning point. Other Noble Peace Prize Laureates and many others luminaries also attended the Summit to share their visions of how to work together to create world peace. Many present at the Summit were in agreement with the Mama that the greatest threat to humanity today is contemporary global development policy, because mass exploitation of the vital elements (minerals) upsets the balance that sustains life on our planet. Imbalance is clearly visible in the precipitous deepening and increasing frequency of natural disasters and conflicts, as well as in physical, mental, and spiritual illnesses.
The Mama shared their wisdom at the Summit in a workshop entitled The Return of Sacred Elements to Their Place of Origins with one of the Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers, Hopi Elders from Shungopavi Village, and renowned anthropologist Wade Davis. The participants witnessed an historic event, as this was the first time the Mama addressed a large-scale audience outside of their traditional territory. At both Menla Mountain and the Peace Summit, the Mama spoke of the necessity for their Younger Brothers to attune with the Natural Law which supersedes all man-made laws.

The Mama, together with the other indigenous elders, are now calling out to all of us, particularly those with the power to implement economic, environmental, social and cultural developmental policies, as well as those with the power to end policies that foster and promote armed conflict in the world. They are calling for us to seek and recognize alternatives to the current model of development, ones which are based instead on the care and protection of all peoples, lands, and cultures. In this way, we will bring back into balance our relationship with the sacred elements–water, air, earth, and fire–in essence, everything that nourishes life.

Everywhere roads lead, the tourist industry follows. Tourists threaten the integrity of local communities, as they inevitably leave their mark. Along with the physical impact, an even more pressing threat is the deterioration of these original peoples’ ancestral wisdom of how to maintain the balance of the planet. Tourism brings very different ways of perceiving the world, permeating and influencing the traditional and cultural values of native peoples, inevitably at their expense.

For the peoples of Gonawindua, mining in Colombia threatens the survival of their cultures, since within their territory (as in the territories of other indigenous peoples of the world) lie large deposits of vital elements, viewed by industrial nations as resources to be extracted and exploited for the purposes of industrialization. The pursuit of these elements by modern societies creates all types of infrastructural incursions, from surface and underground mines, to roads and ports and large industrial processing plants that contaminate the soil and drinking water–all developed without respect for the original and natural function of the land and water. The Mama, whose ancestral role is to be the “Keepers of the Waters”, travelled all this way to appeal to people everywhere to deepen their relationship with the waters of Mother Earth.

For the Mama and other indigenous peoples of the world, the balance of the planet originates within their own territories, ensured by proper “nourishment” of their sacred sites. Carefully tended for thousands of years, these sacred sites embody the spiritual forces that sustain the natural world order, and thereby sustain us. Faced with the continued destruction of their sacred sites, native peoples are now unifying to offer their ancestral wisdom in an effort to restore balance between humanity and Mother Earth. This can only be achieved if all human beings recognize our interconnected role in this work and foster an individual and collective sense of commitment to act responsibly.
The elders are thus emphatically asking all citizens of the world, governments, institutions, corporations, and organizations—both national and international—to embrace this idea and with concrete actions contribute to the awakening of humanity’s collective consciousness in order to ensure that this restoration is actually realized. They ask that from this moment on we work to guarantee generations of our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren a landscape full of promise, peace, and prosperity.
The Mama have a visceral understanding of global climate change, because every micro-climatic possibility on Earth is found in Gonawindua. In fact, they call their ancestral territory the “Heart of the World” and say that what happens in the Heart of the World flows through the entirety of Mother Earth, just as each beat of the human heart sends forth the vital blood needed by the human body to survive.

The agreements and declarations made at Menla and the Peace Summit mark an historic and international precedent before the world and will bring forth an initiative aimed at respecting the Sierra’s ancestral centrality to planetary sustenance. Spokespeople for the Mama succinctly summarized their message:
“From this moment forward, we must join together to stem the onslaught of development projects in Colombia and the rest of the world – such as mining, ports, dams, tourism, and the creation of municipalities and transportation infrastructures. We must recognize the indispensable global importance of our ancient sacred sites and work with unified devotion to revive and utilize ancient traditional practices everywhere in order to recover and sustain natural balance on Earth.”

In fact, it is true that everything we have in our material life that we often take for granted has been taken from Mother Earth. It is only natural that we be reminded to respect and take care of her in return. In essence, the spiritual authorities of traditional peoples from around the world, as represented by the Elder Brothers, are asking each and every one of us to join together in a world-wide effort to restore balance for all life. This restoration is not only possible but necessary in a time when all of the world’s people are re-awakening to our collective responsibility as stewards and children of our Mother Earth.

“We as the Spiritual Authorities of Traditional peoples from around the world, ask you to join our efforts in restoring balance for all life.”

Monsanto in Colombia

Posted by godaddy under Important

Dear Miriam,

When I watched the video of the native tribe speaking about the importance of bringing more balance to the way we all treat the earth, I had a heartfelt connection to their passion.  I was shocked when one of them  pointed out that Monsanto had been there and ruined their food and their treasured garden.  He even invites anyone to come and help them, even if it’s just to plant trees.  It’s an amazing experience and a deep rooted cry for help from a people who obviously have very simple lives. (see the video here: www.youtube.com)

I just came across the following article online.  It tells of Monsanto’s work in the region of Colombia around 2001 in a joint military effort to combat drug cartels by spraying Round-up pesticide on their Coca plants.  Is this when the damage to their gardens occurred?  Is that when they began to get ill, also?  Is it still going on?

I  heard in the news that Monsanto made a deal with Dole foods.  I found the announcement here from Reuters (www.reuters.com/article)

Definitely eating organic these days. as I hate being experimented on.  At a recent visit to the farmers market I found myself having a heated debate with a tortilla vendor on the importance of eating organic.  Since his products were not organic I sensed he was a little defensive.  And in this market, I can’t blame him.  But to try and tell me that genetic modifications to foods has been going on for thousands of years is pure ignorance.  The man has confused Conventional Breeding with Genetically Modified tactics.  This article explains the difference: (www.actionbioscience.org)

It’s a tough debate.  On the one hand you have the potential to create food that meets the ultra convenience of society, larger strawberries, crops that can survive frost, and healthy french fries from McDonalds with potatoes that absorb less fat when fried.  On the other hand you have the fact that we are the guinea pigs and are all playing a part in this huge experiment, being that these manufactures have not tested their product enough to secure the safety of our environment.  What happens when these plants cross-pollinate and form mutant plants?  Will there no longer be a species that would come from a non-modified inherency?  Is this part of another disaster waiting to happen?  Or can we prevent it?

For anyone who cares to learn more:

Hopi Constitution Draft 24A raises community questions: Newspaper article

Please if you are a Hopi read this article. Although it is Ben speaking, he for once is saying facts that will take away all inherent rights of the Traditional people. Now is the time for the Traditionals from all the Villages to meet, talk, share and become strong.

Quotes taken from the article: Navajo Hopi Observer
these traditional or “hybrid” government villages, who now decide on their own how land is allocated for homes, farming or ranching, or even how adoption of Hopi-blooded children or grandchildren, will have to give up that privilege. All matters pertaining to villages will then be centralized under the new branch of government, that will be regulated by the Hopi Tribe central government.

One of the biggest dangers and concerns expressed by Nuvamsa-LaRance is the new constitution Draft 24A will give “absolute power” to the Hopi Chairman. It is stated in Draft 24A, Article V, Section 4(e), “The President shall have power to represent the Tribe in ALL matters with any government, entity or person” with no controls, checks or balances to the Hopi people.”

Hopi is a Complex Way of Life — The “Don’t Vote/Vote No” Issue!

I earlier posted the following articles from the “Navajo-Hopi Observer”, and you may have noticed something curious. In the first article it is stated that the Hopi should not vote in the election, because “not voting” is the traditional method of showing disapproval, and if less that 30% of the Hopi vote then the New Constitution fails. In the second article it says be sure to “vote no”:

Letter: Exercise your right to vote on Hopi Constitution Draft 24A — to the Hopi and Tewa People — 11/30/10

Here is my understanding:

From the Village of Shungopavi, the Mother Village where they still maintain the full Ceremonial Cycle throughout the year, the Traditionals do not vote. Shungopavi, as well as many other Traditionals across Hopi have never voted. Shungopavi Village has never sent representatives to the Hopi Tribal Council. They have a degree of Sovereignty and are asking for full Sovereignty recognition from the Secretary of Interior, Ken Salazar.

It is my understanding that this Village does not accept the Political Government as they are saying that they have never accepted Government rule over them. It is also my understanding …. that they never entered into any kind of treaty with the US Government. So, this is the reason for the “do not vote”. In fact they are strong in their beliefs and always have been along with ALL the other Villages in Hopi who are still maintaining the Traditions. This is the reason for the confusion. Please understand that I dont speak on behalf of anyone and because of the complex situation here, this is how I understand the situation to be.

As for the rest of Hopi, most other Traditional people have not voted in the past either. However, this is what the Progressives and “Government” are counting on. The confusion, lack of education of the people on legalities, propaganda and outright breaking of CURRENT Constitutional Laws of Hopi, to bring this vote in. Because of this complex issue most non-Hopi do not understand how this will effect the people.

In the next week there will be more on what is happening in Hopi on my website. Meaning, I have read the proposed Constitution and will share my findings. Also, more on the who’s-who on this voting issue.

Here’s another example. On the form given out to the people it says: “Notice of Rules of Election”. The Election Board Chairman…. who is here to OVERSEE the process and register votes… was not even in the office until Monday, the 13th of December. When they should have been available since the date these forms were sent out the first of December I beleive. The election is scheduled for January 27th, 2011. The Hopi only have until the 27th of DECEMBER to register. They can do so by filling in the form at the Administration office of the Tribe or from the mail and you may HAND THEM IN AT THE ADMINISTRATION OFFICE TO ENSURE YOU ARE REGISTERED. SENDING THIS IN BY MAIL MAY NOT MAKE IT ON TIME DUE TO CHRISTMAS MAIL. People out here are getting conflicting information on the process. Some are having difficulty reaching people to obtain information.

Imagine if in a Presidential Election that YOU could not get information from the Government as to HOW you can vote…… Imagine if YOU could not VOTE and that meant ALL, AND I MEAN ALL of your rights were taken from you! This is not too harsh of a statement here. It is complicated due to the issues regarding the “Don’t Vote/Vote No” — Traditions, Lawlessness, disregard of Rights of Sovereignty, disrgard of Rights to Practice Religion and many-many others.

This will not only effect the Traditional Hopi but ALL the people of Hopi. Passing this and allowing for it to continue is like allowing a handful of people to destroy thousands lives now and into the future….. for the children.

In the next week I will be posting more information regarding this issue on my website, with as much clarity as possible regarding what is wrong with the process taking place, as well as further information on related questions. There is a great deal of information on my site, already; links to articles and more. http://www.bluestarprophecy.com

If you respect the Hopi and all they do in their Ceremonies for all life, if you view their
Prophecies to be of Value to Humanity, if you feel you would like to help:

Please send emails to Secretary Salazar asking him to HALT the referendum on draft 24A and Uphold the CURRENT RIGHTS and LAWS of the Hopi Constitution and the rights of the People until an investigation takes place.

TRADITIONAL HOPI/SECRETARY KEN SLAZAR AND THE HOPI PEOPLE DEC 13-2010

History is now in the making in regard to the Hopi people. A people who after close to a thousand years in one location in the Arizona desert in the United States still follow the ancient ways and teachings of their ancestors and their Creator Massau. They follow a Religion, Belief, Spiritual Path that is in balance with nature, with the world, with the animals, with all life in all the worlds in fact.
To be Hopi one must be dedicated to hard work, commitment and of good heart.
What does it mean to be Hopi? It is my view that only a TRUE Hopi can answer that question. When you hear them speak it becomes clear quickly that they have a “knowing” within them. They have a peace within that shows through as they carry themselves and I for one have great respect for the level of commitment it takes in this modern world to continue their Ceremonies and Hopi Way of Life.

This is a difficult path to follow for anyone. Maybe in your life you may find it difficult to find time to go for lunch with a friend, make a call, clean your office or things of this nature. Imagine the life of Traditional Hopi. They must commit to weeks of time, monthly, day and night working on the preparations and performing of their complex Ceremonies.

Many of the people in Hopi that do not “take part” in the Kiva’s still participate by contributing in a long list of ways that require time and commitment as well. It would not be respectful to talk about this in detail as it is a Sacred Process and one that is held in such high honor that it is dishonorable and disrespectful to talk about these things in such a casual way. In fact I do not have any part of the Ceremony process in this way, just to be clear to everyone. If someone did want me to participate in their ancient ways the only time this would be acceptable was if the Kikmongwit, Village Chiefs, gave the approval and I assure you that will not happen with me or anyone else that I am aware of.

It is my belief that the Hopi People that are committed to their Traditions are powerful. They hold a key, one of many around the world to our changing times, to our very existence, to our future. This belief within me is strong and it is clear and nothing can pull me from this belief.

Today, my thoughts are with the Traditional People and the people as a whole here on the lands of the Hopi.

I think about what is happening here with a proposed Constitution that has been brought before the people for a vote through breaking the Current Hopi Constitutional Laws.

Going to the edge of the mesas I look out across the desert and ask myself……… will this be the last year that we see the beauty of the untouched lands here? Is this the year that the mining companies come to begin laying the groundwork for strip mining? Is this the last time the eagles will fly above and we see clear skies? Is this the year that the huge corporations that hire people for nothing and make billions come and build their massive stores?

IS THIS THE YEAR THAT ONE OF THE LAST ANCIENT INTACT CULTURES OF OUR WORLD IS DESTROYED BY GREED, LIES, DECEIT AND PURSUIT FOR POWER?

The Highest level of Traditional People must unite into one heart as I know they can, they do and already are within. Now is the time for them to join together from the Kiva’s the Villages, the People. Set aside differences, set aside the past arguments and agree that they must protect what they all have promised to protect…..their Hopi Way of Life and Ceremonies and by doing so all LIfe.

I am a woman, I am white….. and yet I see so clearly the Hearts of so many of the People here in Hopi. I hear the pain in their voices that THEY will be accountable for loosing their Hopi Way of Life. They will be the ones that after thousands of years of carrying on the Ancient and Sacred Way of Life and Ceremonies they may be lost in THIS lifetime. I know who the Hopi are….. they are an important part of this world and allowing them to be destroyed we destroy ourselves.

Now is not the time to say… oh well… its happening everywhere….. no …its not……. It is happening right here in the United States of America. The land where the world views as having respect and freedom for their people. Where the RIGHTS of the people are upheld. Within the United States of America the Secretary fo Interior is allowing a dictator to overthrow an Ancient, Religious and deeply Spiritual group of people who have been here on Earth longer than any government in the world.

If the Hopi unite then the world will unite with them. The people of the world can support them. The people of the world can help STOP this from happening with international media and pressure we can stop this from happening and in turn help ourselves.

I beg of you all … the Hopi people to begin speaking to one another with open hearts. Connect with your your Kikmongwits, your Leaders, your Kivas, families, your clans, your spokesman, your removed Village reps, your own people and become INFORMED. YOUR way of life is at risk and because of no advertizing, not tv, no internet your own people are even unaware that this proposed constitution is upon them.

YOU are being asked to decide the fate of your people, your land, your way of life and the life of this world.

I will keep posting information here as it becomes available. Please, if there are any people from the Villages that are Traditionals now is the time…. speak and speak from your hearts….. the people …… your people and the people of the world need to hear you now. Email me if you choose to: miriam@thegreatgathering.org

For people around the world……. PLEASE I ask, beg, show you my heart and my own pain …. and ask you to please …. act on this………

CALLING ALL PEOPLE FROM HOPI TO WRITE YOUR LETTERS TO SECRETARY SALAZAR ASKING HIM TO STOP THIS VOTE.

CALLING ALL PEOPLE FROM AROUND THE WORLD TO WRITE YOUR LETTERS TO SALAZAR ASKING FOR THE RIGHTS OF THE HOPI PEOPLE TO BE UPHELD.

Please email the Secretary of Interior and ask him to HALT the proposed Constitution and uphold the RIGHTS of the Hopi people. All it may take to save the Hopi and possibly save ourselves from destruction is ONE email …..
