Reference the claim that Hollywood

".....And then, I believe even the Dalai Lama himself, the foremost expert on Tibetan spiritual traditions, has admitted the Tibetan People and Hopi people are closely related......."




Not all third party observers agree that such a historical connection exists. Doug Preston, an author who served as the Dalai Lama's press secretary on his 1992 visit to New Mexico, attended an important meeting between Hopi elders and the Tibetan leader. According to him, the meeting didn't live up to the anticipated reunion some had expected. "In my opinion," he said, "the two great religious traditions did not have much in common, except on a general level. My impression is that the Dalai Lama is more concerned with the connection between humans, where the connection between Pueblos and Tibetans is irrelevant."

Archaeologists and anthropologists, by the nature of their training, are trained in a way that renders them incapable of understanding ancient cultures and what happened in the past.

For example, they are taught to assign a "ritualistic" or "superstitous" purpose to any ancient artifact they find. They are taught that all ancient people were stupid and intellectually inferior to people today, and that all they did was believe in superstitons . Like if an archaeologist finds an artifact, well, it must have had a superstitous purpose like maybe it was used to pray to the rain gods for more rain, as if ancient people were all stupid and superstitous.

Another issue is that archaeologists believe that if a tradition is strictly an oral traditon and was never written down, it must be all made up and pure bull#. They don't believe that it's possible for an oral tradition to be preserved for hundreds or thousands of years intact. If it's not written, then it's fake, is what they believe.

Yet some ancient people kept their oral traditions intact better than written records could be even. They have many ways of doing this. The hopi people here explain how they preserve their heritage and their ancestors traditions

AB: How does Grandfather feel about the accuracy of the word that has been handed down? Many people dispute the Bible and whether or not IT is accurate. With regard to Hopi prophecy, how does HE feel about the accuracy of the prophecy?


GF2: [Asks?] From the time when (?) was the chief, he had been carrying this message. But mainly the message had been carried forth by word of mouth. The accuracy had to deal with how well each individual that was given the opportunity to maintain the exactness of the prophecies. They were all given this prophecy, so they all had to meet at least once or twice a year, in the Kivas, where they would actually sit down and go back through that. One person would talk about the prophecies, and if he ever so much as added something to it or left something out, then the rest of the group would know that part of the prophecies was missing. So, they would tell him, "Well, you didn't say this one here," or "You added this to it." So, that is how this was kept alive through word of mouth and everyone had to remember just what those prophecies were about.


But archaeologists don't want to admit that the people themselves understand their own past much better than an archaeologist trained in limited western misunderstandings of how things work is capable of. Admitting the truth would shatter their Church Of Progress religous beliefs and destroy the notion that they are knowledgable about anything compared to ancient people's knowledge.
