Hopi Elders’ Statement . . .

“You have been telling people
that this is the eleventh hour.
Now you must go back and tell people
that this is the hour!

And there are things to be considered:
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?

Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your Garden.
It is time to speak your truth.
Create your community.
Be good to yourself,
And do not look outside of yourself for a leader.
This could be a good time!

There is a river flowing very fast.
It is so great and fast
that there are those who will be afraid.
They will hold on to the shore.
They will feel that they are being torn apart,
and they will suffer greatly.

Know that the river has its destination.
The elders say that we must let go of the shore,
push off into the middle of the river,
keep our eyes open,
and our heads above the water.
See who is in there with you and celebrate.

At this time we are to take nothing personally,
least of all, ourselves.
For the moment that we do,
our spiritual growth comes to a halt.

The time of the lone wolf is over.
Gather yourselves.
Banish the word struggle
from your attitude and your vocabulary.

All that we do now must be done
in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones that we have been waiting for.”

The Elders, Oraibi, Arizona Hopi Nation
