"Sacred Circles"

The hoop dancer symbolizes the renewal of the earth. He dances within cycles, a celebration of the renewal of the Earth's own cycles.
This hoop dancer dances on the image of the earth which was glimpsed by the astronauts from space when man first walked on the moon. When we first saw the earth from space, it was hoped that there would be a new consciousness that would come from this first ability to view ourselves; our planet. We could now see our planet. Now that we could see ourselves from space, surely we would realize how fragile the earth really is, that we are but one object in space. Surely with this new perspective, we will honor the earth more. Perhaps we will preserve the earth, our only planet to live on.
May this hoop dancer's sacred circles renew mother Earth, her sacred cycles, and our consciousness of the delicate and difficult nature of this cyclic dance.

Kogi Tribe of Atlantis - The Elder Brothers Warning

The Elder Brothers of The Koji Tribe Warning to the Younger Brothers (us) about destroying mother earth. An awesome documentary from lost Atlantean civilization in the Columbian mountains. They are truly enlightened brothers who can teach us brethren a thing or two about how to live.


The Kogi (Cogui or K√°gaba), translated "jaguar" in the Kogi language are a Native American ethnic group that lives in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia. Their civilization has continued since the Pre-Columbian era.
The Kogi claim to be descendants of the Tairona culture, which flourished before the time of the Spanish conquest. The Tairona were forced to move into the highlands when the Caribs invaded around 1000 CE, according to the Federal Research Division of the Library of Congress which allowed them to evade the worst effects of the Spanish colonization. Like so many ancient myths concerning holy mountains at the "centre of the world", their mythology teaches that they are "Elder Brothers" of humanity, living in the "Heart of the World" (the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta). Those not living in the Heart of the World are called "Younger Brothers." Their mythology suggests that these Younger Brothers were sent away from the heart of the world long ago, seemingly in reference to these same Carib people who are said to have originated from South America.
The Kogi base their lifestyles on their belief in "The Great Mother," their creator figure, whom they believe is the force behind nature, providing guidance. The Kogi understand the Earth to be a living being, and see the colonizers' mining, building, pollution and other activities damaging the Great Mother.
The Kogi Mamas have remained isolated from the rest of the world since the Spanish Conquistadors came to plunder South America for gold.The Kogi Mamas claim that the balance of the earth's ecology has been suffering since these times and that 'Younger Brother' (modern humanity) is to blame. The Kogi Mamas in turn term themselves as 'Elder Brother' claiming that their religious work is instrumental in helping to prolong and protect life on earth. In an attempt to prevent further ecological catastrophe, the Kogi Mamas broke their silence and chose to allow a small BBC film crew into their isolated mountaintop civilization to hear their message, a warning to 'Younger Brother'. The subsequent messages and warnings were voiced in the documentary The Heart of The World: Elder Brother's Warning. After the documentary was filmed, the Kogi Mamas took away any means for 'Younger Brother' to enter their civilization and once again returned to their work in isolation.


 
The Black Line Journey

The Black Line forms a virtual triangle around the base of the SNSM (Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta), approximately 100 miles on each side, connecting 54 sacred sites. The Line is a spiritual boundary that demarcates the ancestral territory of the four indigenous groups of the Sierra Nevada, the Koguis, Arhuacos, Wiwas and Kankuamos. The purpose of the Mamos’ journey is to make offerings at these sites in compliance with their “Law of Origin”. The Mamos have been making these offerings for millennia. This is how they care for the Sierra Nevada, which they call “The Heart of the World”.




 





Shift Of The Ages


The Shift of the Ages film is a true account of Mayan prophecy as depicted through the life and mission of Wandering Wolf, the Grand Elder of the Maya. Through his story, we gain a deep and powerful understanding of the momentous evolutionary shift currently underway in our cosmos.
Wandering Wolf shares his wisdom during the astounding journey from his humble beginnings as a poor, itinerant shoe-shine boy, to his exalted position of Itinerant Extraordinary Ambassador to the Indigenous Pueblos Maya, Xinca and Garifuna of Guatemala. The film reflects Wandering Wolf’s story and message in perfect accordance with the Cosmo-Vision of the Mayan Prophecies.
Wandering Wolf shares his desire to bring an accurate message of the Mayan Cosmo-Vision to the world. In order to clarify misconceptions about the Mayan prophecies, its culture and traditions – especially as it relates to the end date of 2012 – the film transitions between four major perspectives:
  1. Wandering Wolf’s desire and actions to deliver a powerful message to the world;
  2. The quest and struggle to unite the world according to his vision and the Cosmo Vision of the Mayan prophecies related to the dawning of a new age.
  3. A documentary on various views of the alleged 2012 end date.
  4. A powerful transformational experience highly relevant for our times.

As he travels throughout the world gathering people in the name of global unity, Wandering Wolf warns of dangers in the dark period of the Fifth Sun in which we currently live. Sharing his visions with other tribal and indigenous leaders, he passes to them an ancient Sacred Staff bequeathed by his ancestors. The Staff is the grand symbol of solidarity destined to unite nations and usher in the age of harmony, prosperity and peace to the earth. His message is one of hope and inspiration – - we must unite and change the way we live NOW.



WISDOMKEEPERS

Wisdomkeepers are the guardians of nature's mysteries within the Lakota ceremonies and their practices, the medicine that is ruled by them, the songs that infuse our senses and our spiritual body, and the forces they produce that are identical to nature and its motivating power. These oral and entirely spontaneous transmissions, given by the three holy men, Joe Flying By, Dave Chief, and Leroy Curley, are a rare treasure of the highest generosity, directed for the greatest good. Their stories are told with complete equanimity, vividly conveying, without rancor or judgement, how Western civilization lacks connection to the natural world. Because passing on elders' wisdom in the oral tradition to the next generation is almost impossible, given the fact that the three important elements of the Lakota culture--the land, the people, and the language--are all but gone, the film's producer/director (Ora Abel-Russell) has provided a great service to those who have an interest in, and wish to learn from, ancient Native American teachings that have rarely been exposed.


The Earth is Sacred
From that profoundly simple truth the Hopis evolved and still live anting their sacred corn today in a remove village in Northern Arizona. But this Web page ( http://www.jnanadana.org/hopi/techqua_ikachi.html ) is not just about them; it is about a message ( http://www.jnanadana.org/hopi/hopi_messages.html ) they have for us all-a message based on a series of remarkable prophecies they were given a thousand years ago. Their elders tell us that their tiny village, Hotevilla, is in fact a sacred microcosm of our world, that it holds the promise and the possibility of mankind's future on the planet. Could such a remarkable claim be true? What did the Hopi prophets see ten centuries ago that could be so relevant to humankind today? Learn for yourself the answers to those questions, and learn, too, of this courageous, tiny band of native Americans who have preserved an ancient tradition in the face of unbelievable odds and opposition. Return to this page again and again. You will find below the words and images which conveyed, in 44 newsletters ( http://www.jnanadana.org/hopi/techqua_ikachi_i.html ) published in the past 20 years, their story, their hopes, their difficulties and their message to us all. There is not a single person on this planet who will not learn by reading these stories how to live better with himself, his neighbours and his environment. We recommend them to you, to us, to the survival of the human race.

Hopi: Techqua Ikachi: Land - My Life

The documentary TECHQUA IKACHI LAND - MY LIFE is the result of the cooperation of the 74-year-old Hopi James Danaqyumptewa with the Swiss artist Agnes Barmettler and filmmaker Anka Schmid. It tells in a revealing mixture of cinematic, photographic and pictorial documents the history of the Hopi tribe from their own point of view and way of thinking.
Against the background of traditional Hopi life, laws and prophecies elders from the village Hotevilla (Arizona) tell their experiences of nonviolent resistance to the expropriation of land and the domination by the U.S. government. They report as a witness, about the U.S. invaders putting them as "rebels" into prison, kidnapping their children to boarding schools, and inviting their own puppet government. The devastating consequences of this are a major concern for the elders. An even greater concern is the recognition of sovereignty on its own territory and respect for the dignity of all life on this earth.
The film contains unique Super-8 shots of the Hopi co-author of some already disappeared ceremonies as well as current 16-mm images of the Hopi field work amid the barren desert landscape. These scenes provide an insight into the fruitful spiritual life of this indigenous people and in a culture full of richness and beauty. Since this documentary deliberately avoides explanatory comments, the viewers can get involved in the meditative power of the images and the narrative style of the Hopi.
TECHQUA IKACHI is an authentic testimony of an indigenous people for the recognition of its independence. With the death of the Hopi elders, their deep knowledge of the life in mutual respect and in harmony with the laws of nature expires. So is their legacy an important ethnographic and historical monument of lasting political sensitivity.
