Overview

DID THE ANCIENT MAYAN AND AZTEC CALENDARS PREDICT THE END OF THE WORLD IN OUR TIME? WILL SEATTLE'S MT. RAINIER SOON ERUPT AND "WIPE THE LAND CLEAR TO THE SEA"? HAS THE GREAT CYCLE OF EARTH CHANGES ALREADY BEGUN?

The startling, sometimes frightening, predictions of Native American prophets have proven remarkably accurate and relevant in the past. It was the Hopi, for example, who foresaw the Rising Sun of Japan and the swastika of Nazi Germany. For generations, these seers have warned us to respect the land from which we all spring or face dire consequences. Today, their warnings have renewed significance in light of the social and environmental changes now sweeping the planet.

In this thought-provoking book, Scott Peterson explores Native American wisdom, its origins~and history, and its relevance today. First discussed are the predictions, practices, and calendars of the Mayans and Aztecs. Next examined are two Native American prophets whose wisdom often
proposed ways of regaining dignity and personal power in an unstable and hostile environment: Deganawidah the Peacemaker whose visionary system of political organization influenced Benjamin Franklin; and Wovoka, the Paiute Messiah who foresaw the end of the white race and
reestablishment of an Indian paradise. As his chilling Ghost Dance swept across the nations of the Plains, the increasing deceptions and self-delusions sustaining his cult ultimately ignited the massacre at Wounded Knee. Finally Scott Peterson introduces us to contemporary Native American prophets and their astonishing prophecies for our future, including the charismatic and controversial Sun Bear, whose visions of coming earth changes--from volcanic eruption to nuclear war--hold lessons for us all.

An exciting blend of North American Indian culture, history, and biographies of our most, powerful Native American visionaries, Native American Prophecies raises a compelling plea to step off the path of social and environmental earth contamination that we currently tread and embrace a natural respect for our Earth Mother.
