White Star Eagle

Hopi legend speaks of the Pahana, or the True WhiteBrother, (White Star Eagle)
who once lived with the people and would return in the time of Koyaanisquatsi,
when the world was beset by fearful troubles and chaos.
Then He would unite the broken tribes and reestablish balance and harmony.

The Hopi also were told that during this crisis someone or some group known as either
the Elder Brother, or the True White Brother, could appear from the East,
could save the true Hopi, and could inaugurate the "Day of Purification".
This group was also to have the "life plan for the future".

"This third event [following the two wars] will depend upon the Red Symbol,
which will take command, setting the four forces of nature (Meha) in motion
for the benefit of the Sun".

If we dig precious things from the land, we will invite disaster.
Near the Day of Purification, there will be cobwebs spun back and forth in the sky.
A container of ashes might one day be thrown from the sky,
which could burn the land and boil the ocean.

Techqua Ikachi

On the Wings of
An eagle He
Is Born.

To take us back
Through the
Journey of
The Sun.

He has counted
Us all one
By one.

Now the Son
Will run
With all.

To show us Peace
Love and Light
Together We
Live in Eternal


White Buffalo Returns

I hear her speak.

Her words are strong,
Like a millon Buffalo
Thundering along.

Her words are
Peace, Love, and Life
No more strife
And no more fight.

Hear, our people;
We are still alive,
With the sacred wisdom
That lives inside.

As one nation,
We come alive
To fulfill the dreams
That live inside.


To hear with your
heart and not
your ears.

To feel with your
heart and not
your hands.

To see with your
heart and not
your eyes.

To speak with your
heart and not
your mouth.

To think with your
heart and not
your mind.

To be one with
all in the heart.

White Buffalo


High upon sacred mountain
I hear the cry of the sacred
wolf, coming to teach us the
wisdom of the ancient ones.

Teaching us to help the children
of our mother earth and giving us
understanding of Wanka Tanka
and life.

I see the deer in the forest so near
filling our hearts with love and abolishing
all our fears.

I feel the winds upon my face
bringing the change from a
sacred place.

I see the stars in the sky
who light the way so one
day we'll fly.


Sacred tree of life
teach us to root ourself
and walk in balance.

Teach us to share our
shelter, food, our breath.

Teach us to bend, and to have
compassion and love
for our brothers and sisters.

Teach us to be grateful
for all gifts we recieve
and, remind us to pray.

Teach us to stand tall and
reach for grandfather sun.

Teach us to share and live as one.

Sacred tree of life
thank you for all your
wisdom and for all
life in which you


You think you've broken our spirit
but now you must know.

The clouds were dark but the
sacred winds will always blow.

We love and care for our
mother's land.
See you've forgotten you
not but a grain of sand.

As the tree sprouts and
knows when to grow
hidden from the winters snow.

We will rise and shine
these sacred things
you'll never know.

Like the rivers we have moved
through time fast and slow.

You see we have kept that sacred flow.

Things I speak about are things I see
seeking peace and living free.

Tidal Wave MOTHER EARTH Volcano

You think you are superior
civilized man, look what
you've done to these
precious lands.

We are not but a flea
on our mother's back.
How much more
before she cracks.

Hear her call us one
and all, for if not
we all will fall.

You've taken advantage
of these precious lands
what is to come, is
now at hand.


Remember to be humble
along the way.

give thanks
for each and every day.
