In Kasskara, White Bear said, all the power and the energy people needed came from the sun. It was a universal source of power that did not depend on electric lines. Although he didn't understand how it functioned, he describes this energy and devices that were used to direct it in ancient times:

The 'Keyhole' shape represents the 'Nine Worlds', according to White Bear.

"We had an appliance--in fact we had many--with a crystal inside not longer than an inch. In those days people did not have to work the stone with a graver. All they had to do was to direct the appliance towards the sun and they could split the stone with solar energy.

Sounds were recorded in crystals. All the recordings of the Third World are in a cave in South America. My grandmother told me this one day, but nobody knows any more where it is. If the cave were to be discovered one day, I would be able to recognize everything inside. When we came to this continent, we of course took along these appliances like all our knowledge. In South America people were able to lift enormous blocks of rock without touching them by tightening the hands. Today one is surprised and does not understand how people could build such big cities, but at the time it was easy.

The greatest effectiveness of the capacities of the human being lies in his fingertips. They can emit and absorb a lot of energy. Think of medicine men who place their fingers on your body and feel the vibrations. They also feel the vibrations which should not be there and thus locate disease. At some point mercury was also used, but I do not know exactly why. According to our tradition there are two kinds of mercury: a liquid and a solid one. There has to be a relationship between heat and balance, but I do not know if from the scientific point of view it means something. People of the "Two Horns Clan" used it according to a man of the Clan of the Bow.

Our people had an elevated technological level, but they never used the energy to destroy lives. All this knowledge was gradually lost and people had to work increasingly hard. Today, all these good things have been forgotten, and we see with astonishment what was possible in the past. As a comparison one could say that it is today that we live in a dark period.


When we settled in South America, we started to document our presence. We expressed our historical and spiritual knowledge through symbols. We do it still today because we inherited these symbols from our fathers and we understand the figures and lines. We know what they mean and we can express ourselves through these symbols.

We left our symbols everywhere where we lived or migrated. One can find the evidence of our knowledge in all of South America up through the North American continent: drawings, ceramics, buildings. People say that we did not have writing. But the symbols are precisely our writing, and these are the messages which are present everywhere on the two continents and which were not yet destroyed.

We wrote our symbols on rock because it is not easy to destroy it by time. We decorated our ceramics with symbols, and we still use them today. Each time we left a provisional settlement during our migrations, our children broke all ceramics in the village and left them like a legacy. Ceramics cannot be destroyed. One can break it, but the pieces always remain. Other people and future generations will come and will find them, and they will know that we were there before them.

And there are the buildings and the ruins. If one pays attention to some characteristic signs one can find them everywhere in South America and here. For example there are circular and square towers. The round tower is the female symbol; the square tower the male symbol.

The T form or "keyhole" is very important. We have used it since the First World. This form is a symbol for the plan of the Creator. This is why the foundations of our kivas have this T form. And as I speak about the kivas, I want to add some other symbolic meanings found in these constructions. The lower floor represents the First World, the upper floor the Second World, and the entire construction from the back to the front represents the Third World. The elevated platform on the flat roof represents our current world" the Fourth World. Now you understand why the kivas are so important to us.

And naturally there are the large buildings of the past. The references to the multiple worlds are evident. How much symbolism and knowledge are expressed through them! The reference to the various worlds is everywhere, in the number of floors of the pyramids and the number of doors on the roofs of buildings: the three worlds of the past, the Fourth or current world, the Fifth World and the seven worlds which humanity must cross. Even the nine worlds are mentioned including the two worlds belonging to the Creator. And consider the sculptures and the positions of the buildings. We could write a book on the significance of the discoveries in the Mexican and South American ruins. I already spoke you about the "T form" with Teotihuacan, of the significance of the degrees, why there is a hole in the building of the Pyramid of the Sun, and the significance of the snakes on the two sides of the steps. All these things have a significance, and the history is registered everywhere. We are people having a spiritual orientation, and the historians and the archaeologists must realize that they will have to initially understand us before being able to explain the ruins.

Today we carry these symbolic figures with us, or rather, in us. Not in a material form but in a more subtle way. For example, during a ceremony when the Kachinas dance on the village square, they form their groups at only three places to show the three worlds which we crossed. They cannot form a fourth group since the Fourth World is not finished. I must also mention the songs that we sing during the ceremonies. Such a song comprises five stanzas, which means that we will go in the Fifth World. As you see, the Hopis know exactly where they are located in the plan of the worlds: between the third, which was destroyed, and the fifth, the next world that we must reach. We know that we are in the Fourth World located in the middle of seven worlds which we must cross. We do not need to say it because everything is expressed symbolically in our ceremonies. Why note something in writing which is rooted so deeply in ourselves and is expressed so clearly in our ceremonies?

All the symbolism used by Hopis points out the truth to us that we learned a long time ago. But only we Hopis know and understand this symbolism; no other tribe can approximate our understanding even if many of them use the Hopis' symbols now. They only see the outside and do not have real knowledge of it. If you see our symbols somewhere in South America, in Central America, or on this continent, know that we know still today what they mean. And know that we know all that by our past and what our fathers transmitted to us and which we keep always alive.

And do not forget that the knowledge of the Hopis is even wider: we know that our voices even without sound are recorded in the atmosphere and that it is indestructible! Rocks and ruins can disappear one day, but what we say and what occurs in our hearts on a higher level will never be destroyed.

Each one among us was born with predestination and must fulfill its task in this world. A long time before I was conceived, it was decided that it would belong to my destiny to transmit all these things. This is why I speak with you. I said to you earlier that the history of my people represents a warning for you. I hope that you understood this warning now. Have you noticed how history repeats itself over and over again? And you saw that the Creator punishes humanity when it transgresses the laws and deviates from or leaves the right path.
