Massua told the Hopi that the white man would develop a “Gourd of Ashes” that would have the capability to destroy all life.
He instructed the Hopi that when this “Gourd of Ashes” was made it was time for the Hopi to begin sharing the Hopi prophecy with all peoples.
When the first nuclear test was reported, David Monongye, the revered Kikmongwi of Hotevilla and the prophet who saw the vision of the nine-pointed blue star, assembled the third mesa elders and 5 prophet teachers where appointed. This occurred in the mid 1940′s.
The five teachers, including David Monongye, began traveling to different places and taught the prophecy.
Massau instructed that the white man would also build a “House of Mica” on the East Coast where the leaders of the world would gather. (the UN Building) When this occurred, David Monongye and his adopted grandson, John Kimmey and a few other Hopi went and presented the information given by Massau.
David Monongye was the son of the Yukiuma, the great Hopi leader who almost single-handedly preserved Hopi traditionalism in the early 1900′s. Yukiuma was the keeper of the Fire Clan tablets at that time. (He actually hid them in his loincloth and took them to prison with him when he refused to give up the Hopi children to the white authority.) These special tablets where entrusted to the Fire Clan by Massau. Massau gave the keeper special instructions and unique information which has been passed down from keeper to keeper.
Yukiuma passed along the tablets to Martin Gashweseoma, his nephew. Martin is a controversial figure among the Hopi as he never was initiated into the Kiva’s and because he took the tablets to Sante Fe after the appearance of the Comet Hale-Bopp and revealed them to the white man. He claimed that this was per instructions he received from Yukiuma but many Hopi took exception to this (even Hotevilla Hopi) and the tablets where taken from him by force. Whether or not Martin did the right thing and whether or not the Hopi who took the tablets did the right thing will be judged by The Pahanna at the appointed time.
Should the Hopi Prophecy be taught at this time: According to David Monongye, the last Hopi prophet, the answer is YES. Should people seek to learn the Hopi prophecy? According to David Monongye, the answer is YES.
Should people share what they know of the prophecy with others? I think it is essential to Massau’s intent to do so. The messages and instructions he gave are for all of mankind.
People should be aware of both the promises of the fifth world and the disastrous consequences of failing to re-embrace the spirit within. The argument that not informing people of the down side in the prophecy because “they might bring it about” is gratuitous and not Hopi. Hiding information is not a workable strategy for humanity’s preservation.
