    The Essential Hopi Prophecies

    The Hopi are Southwestern Native Americans dwelling in Pueblos of Oraibi. These are the oldest continuously inhabited settlements in North America dating back as far as 1100 C.E. Up until the mid-twentieth century, the Hopi kept a secret, an oral tradition of foreknowledge—signs presaging an end of an old and perhaps a beginning of a new world. The milestones listed are specific. For instance, they anticipated the coming of the white people from the East bearing their sign of the cross, herding their long-horned cattle and the first sign of wheels came to Hopi lands attached to their covered wagons. The iron roads with their iron horses, the iron ropes suspended in the air (telegraph wires) and later the “cobwebs” of airplane contrails crisscrossing the skies, all fulfilled the opening prophetic stages indicating that the Great Purification by Fire was at hand. The test firing of the first atomic bomb in 1945, not far from Hopi lands in neighboring New Mexico prompted the Hopi to end their centuries of silence. 
    The “Gourd of Ashes” had arrived, the shape of its rising mushroom cloud foretold in the metaphor of a round gourd stood on its long neck. It was the Hopi elders’ cue that it was time to reveal to people of all races a short list of final warnings heralding the world’s purification either by the fire of nuclear war and runaway global warming, or by a fire of a burning love and conscious concern for the Earth and each other. 
    Once again author and prophecy scholar John Hogue takes a large and involved prophetic subject and distills it down to its essentials for a quick and comprehensive read that includes the shared visions of many Native American nations about the coming of the Europeans to North America and the death and renewal of our world.

    “I have known John Hogue for fifteen years, during which time he has appeared on my radio program many, many times. Every year, he predicts on the program in the first quarter and we ‘hold his feet to the fire’ during the summer. And every year, he proves to be fireproof. He’s accurate. Uncannily accurate.” 
    —Whitley Strieber, author of “Communion” and “The Coming Global Superstorm” with Art Bell 
    John Hogue is author of 600 articles and 30 published books (1,160,000 copies sold) spanning 20 languages. He has predicted the winner of every US Presidential Election since 1968, giving him a remarkable 12 and 0 batting average. Hogue is a world-renowned expert on the prophecies of Nostradamus and other prophetic traditions. He claims to focus on interpreting the world’s ancient-to-modern prophets and prophecies with fresh eyes, seeking to connect readers with the shared and collective visions of terror, wonder and revelation about the future in a conversational narrative style. Hogue says the future is a temporal echo of actions initiated today. He strives to take readers “back to the present” empowering them to create a better destiny through accessing the untapped potentials of free will and meditation.
