I've been reading a lot of the post for a while...you know getting a feel for the group before I open my mouth and say something stupid...
Anyway I thought I'd bring up that Many Native America people are taught in our old stories all about aliens, where humans came from and naturally we
have our end of days stories...
I'm not really the person to teach you all about the old ways but many of the posts here remind me of stories my grandfather told me as a child..
so to start first the stories all tell Humans didn't come from this world. Depending on the tribe you cite this can be the third world or as many as
the seventh world we've come from...all the stories talk about death doom and destruction on the old worlds then threw heroic acts we were brought
here to this world...
some think that maybe the first human alien contact was with a being called Kokopilli see Original Petroglyph
AKA the flute player or hunchback...legend says when humans first came here Kokopilli taught people how to survive, what to
hunt and what to grow. Later he became a trader and travel between villages to check up on them...
Now I cant speak for all tribes but both the Apache and Dine (Navajo), I believe the Lakota people do as well, speak of star tribes...outer space
Tribes. Part of the Hopi Prophesy talks about the sign of the end of days is when the blue star dancer dances in the plaza...this is supposed to mean
the end of this world and he will take one man and one woman along to the next world...Yes I realize this kind of sounds like Adam and Eve but trust
me this Hopi Prophesy predates Christianity. I'll see if I can call up a google vid on the Hopi Prophesy for you all if intrested in that sort of
thing. anyway the old people all used to agree that in the old days it was quite common for the star tribes to visit trade and teach. that all ended
after some war they had...that part gets confusing because no one know what that war was about or who one. just that the star tribes stopped coming
moving on to 2012 well that's hard to say...see when the Spanish first met the Mayans they brought whit them their priest's. the first thing they
did was try to convert the natives...they held a sword over their heads and asked do you believe in our god? if you said yes they let you go in no?
off came your head...so Mayans, the survivors anyway quickly converted and the church went about burning all the texts, all but three...What little we
do know about them comes from those three texts and its not much...
TO north American Tribe we too have our end of days stories the ones I grew up hearing were not like the Hopi's rather the there are seven chosen
tribes and they guard seven gates if you will. the gates lead to the underworld. not hell but the route from the old world and maybe a route to the
next...if that story were to come to pass all I can say is I hope I'm long dead. I'm too old now to fight what are said to be terrible creatures
then settle on a new world with nothing but what's on our backs.
in closing all I can say is we Natives are just as confused as to the meaning of live the universe and what will happen to us... as any of you...the
real difference is we have a different set of building blocks to stand on when we ask our questions.
If any are intrested in reading some of the old stories I will include a couple of links all I ask is you respect the authors and our belief's
