That is a good question... On the Crystalinks
page, it says the prophetic account occurred in 1959
by White Feather to told to a minister David Young. It says it was published by Frank Waters in The Book of the Hopi in 1963, which post dates
things like roads, trains, oil which those topics observed by White Feather are pretty much common sense and his perspective on changing times.
War and Greed have always been around and will be there far into the future. Whether this is insight or prophecy, it is still an interesting topic,
however leaves alot of room for individual interpretation. I am not being critical of that fact, because it does make for a good story for future
generations that it is OK to listen to, and respect their elders and maintain their heritage and traditions. I recently saw a neat quote
"When an old man dies, we lose a library".
I don't think there is anything wrong with prophetic stories such as this because it is one man's vision of the future. For this type of message,
the fact that it is metaphorical and cryptic makes it even better in my opinion.
My only criticism on this is the presentation which is webpage text which is subject to alternation and has alot of editorial bias. Crystalink should
scan the paper documents as exhibits and let people comment on it. The one thing that lends credence to these stories is their publication date when
it was put on paper.
