The Hopi Message To The United Nations General Assembly

Submitted By Thomas Banyacya, Kykyotsmovi, Arizona

December 10, 1992


...This Hopi ceremonial rattle represents Mother Earth. The line running 
around it is a time line and indicates that we are in the final days of 
the prophecy. What have you as individuals, as nations and as the world 
body been doing to take care of this Earth? In the Earth today, humans 
poison their own food, water and air with pollution. Many of us 
including children are left to starve. Many wars are still being fought. 
Greed and concern for material things is a common disease.

In this Western hemisphere, our homeland, many original native people 
are landless, homeless, starving and have no medical help.

The Hopi knew humans would develop many powerful technologies that would 
be abused. In this century we have seen the First World War and the 
Second World War in which the predicted gourd of ashes which you call 
the atomic bomb fell from the sky with great destruction. Many thousands 
of people were destroyed in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

For many years there has been great fear and danger of World War Three. 
The Hopi believe the Persian Gulf War was the beginning of World War 
Three but it was stopped and the worst weapons of destruction were not 
used. This is now a time to weigh the choices for our future. We do have 
a choice. If you, the nations of this Earth create another great war, 
the Hopi believe we humans will burn ourselves to death with ashes. 
That's why the spiritual Elders stress strongly that the United Nations 
fully open the door for native spiritual leaders to speak as soon as 

Nature itself does not speak with a voice that we can easily understand. 
Neither can the animals and birds we are threatening with extinction 
talk to us. Who in this world can speak for nature and the spiritual 
energy that creates and flows through all life? In every continent are 
humanbeings who are like you but who have not separated themselves from 
the land and from nature. It is through their voice that Nature can 
speak to us. You have heard those voices and many messages from the four 
corners of the world today. I have studied comparative religion and I 
think in your own nations and cultures you have knowledge of the 
consequences of living out of balance with nature and spirit. The native 
peoples of the world have seen and spoken to you about the destruction 
of their lives and homelands, the ruination of nature and the 
desecration of their sacred sites. It is time the United Nations used 
its rules to investigate these occurrences and stop them now...
