Most Native American prophecy laments the wanton distruction of the Earth, stripping her of her resources for profit. It
warns of the consequences of the rampant lack of respect for the Earth and all living things on it. And the consequences are
Grandfather Stalking Wolf
"I had a vision," Grandfather Stalking Wolf told Tom Brown early in the 20th century. "It was a vision of
the destruction of man. But man was given four warnings to that destruction, two of which gave man a chance to change his
ways and two of which would give the children of the Earth time to escape the Creator's wrath."
"[These signs] will be obvious to you and those who listen to the Spirit of the Earth but to those who live within
the flesh and know only flesh, there is no knowing and no understanding. When these signs, these warnings and prophecies,
are made manifest, then you will understand the urgency of what I speak. Then you will understand why people must not just
work for their own spiritual rapture, but to bring that rapture to the consciousness of modern man."
The four signs are:
- Starvation and death on a massive scale, that the entire world would notice. There will appear a new disease, "born
of monkeys, drugs, and sex."
- Holes in the sky, dripping an oily substance filled with dead fish and dolphins.
- The sky will turn blood red, marking the end of humankind. "For when the sky bleeds fire, there will be no safety
in the world of man."
- The "four seasons of peace." For one year, there will be peace, but during this time, people must change their
way of life - returning to the earth and the old ways. At this point there is no turning back.
- "The fourth and final sign will appear through the next ten winters following the night that the stars will bleed.
During this time the Earth will heal itself and man will die. For those ten tears the children of the Earth must remain hidden
in the wild places, make no permanent camps, and wander to avoid contact with the last remaining forces of man. THEY MUST
REMAIN HIDDEN, like the ancient scouts and fight the urge to go back to the destruction of man. Curiosity could kill many."
