“Then a Voice said: ‘Behold this day, for it is yours to make. Now you shall stand upon the center of the earth to see, for there they are taking you.’ I was still on my bay horse, and once more I felt the riders of the west, the north, the east, the south, behind me, as before, and we were going east. I looked ahead and saw the mountains there with rocks and forests on them, and from the mountains flashed all colors upward to the heavens.
Then I was standing on the highest mountain of them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world. And while I stood there, I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I saw in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being.
And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father. And I saw that it was holy.
Then as I stood there, two men were coming from the east, head first like arrows flying, and between them rose the daybreak star. They came and gave an herb to me and said: "With this on earth you shall undertake anything and do it."
It was the Daybreak-Star herb, the herb of understanding, and they told me to drop it on the earth. I saw it falling far, and when it struck Mother Earth, it rooted and grew and flowered, four blossoms on one stem, a black, a white, a scarlet, and a yellow. The rays from these streamed upward to the heavens so that all creatures saw it and in no place was there darkness.”

Prophecies, like Black Elk’s, were given when our Indigenous ancestors still rode free on the High Plains of Turtle Island. They plainly trace the advent of a “Hoop of Many Hoops” a “Global Commons” in which all nations, races, creeds, and classes are closely and permanently united in recognizing the oneness of our Human Family.
The advent of this New Global Civilization was foretold not only by our Indigenous Peoples of the Americas, but, as well, the Ancient of Days, and many other Faith Traditions Globally.
These prophecies of the Americas include the 2012 Mayan Prophecies, The Reunion of the Condor and the Eagle, the Eighth Council Fire, the Return of the White Buffalo, the Prophecies of Black Elk, The Peacemaker, Quetzalcoatl, Sweet Medicine, Handsome Lake, the Hopi, and many others.
These prophecies are firmly and unshakably rooted in the spiritual understanding and consciousness of the Oneness of the Human Family and all Life. From this spiritual understanding and consciousness naturally unfolds the realization of:
The Equality of Men and Women
The Balancing of the Extremes of Wealth and Poverty
The Elimination of All Prejudices
The essential Unity harmony of Science and Spirituality
The Independent Investigation of Truth, and
Unity in Diversity.
A New Global Civilization where the voices, the wisdom, and the vision of Indigenous Peoples are justly and respectfully represented and whose ancient wisdom is finally heard and truly acted upon!
This “Hoop of Many Hoops” will be manifested when there is a shared commitment to placing the common good ahead of any national, ethnic, religious, or selfish interests. The “Hoop of Many Hoops” is a new Global Civilization that ensures the autonomy of each of its representative members, as well as completely safeguarding the personal freedom and initiative of all the individuals that compose them.
The vision of all these prophecies is that a New Global Civilization is inevitable. This New Global Civilization is in the process of emerging, founded on the unshakable consciousness of the Oneness of Humankind, a spiritual truth that all the human sciences confirm. Anthropology, physiology, and psychology recognize only One Human Race, although infinitely varied in the secondary aspects of life.
The full recognition of this fundamental truth requires the abandonment of all prejudice–prejudice of every kind– race, class, sexual orientation, color, creed, nationality, gender, degrees of material wealth, everything which encourages people to consider themselves superior or inferior to others. Abandoning all prejudice is a great spiritual challenge and requirement for all of us at this critical time.
The full consciousness and acceptance of the Oneness of the Human Family is the fundamental prerequisite for the reorganization and administration of the world as One, the Home of humankind. Universal acceptance and realization of this spiritual principle are essential to any successful attempt to establish Peace on Earth.
The spiritual reality of the Oneness of the Human Family should, therefore, be universally proclaimed, taught in every school, and affirmed in every nation as preparation for fundamental changes in how nation-states function and the systemic structures of our unfolding global society. World peace will only be fully achieved when this spiritual reality of the “Oneness” of all Life is realized.
This Global Civilization, as visualized, will consist of:
A new Global Governing System, rooted locally, organized, and scaled bio-regionally, and synergized globally. The members of this new Global Governing System must be elected in a non-partisan principle-centered manner.
One of the key responsibilities of this Global Governance System, with free, prior, and informed consent will be to steward and ensure the sustainable and harmonious development of our global resources and cultures. Another key responsibility will be enacting such laws as shall be required to regulate life, satisfy the needs, and adjust the relationships of all elements of the Human Family.
The extremes of wealth and poverty will be limited and brought into balance, with the spiritual and moral understanding that every Human Being has the fundamental right to clean water to drink, healthy food to eat, health care, adequate housing, universal education, and freedom of worship and expression.
This rebalancing results from the recognition that each one of us is part of a Whole Living System and Design, fashioned by Our Creator to shelter the sacred flame of Life and shine everlastingly with its radiant beauty.
Again, with free, prior, and informed consent as a fundamental organizing principle, this Global Governance System will carry out the decisions and apply the laws enacted, safeguarding the organic unity of a Global Commons.
Through the use of blockchain and other emerging DLT technologies, we will multiply our capacity to govern interdependently. Blockchain can perform the core functions of governing bodies and can act as recorders, organizers, restrictors, and incentivize structures of human activity.
“Smart contracts'' enable better structured, more inclusive decision making, they can handle well-defined tasks, and their supervision and coordination can be handled by the crowd. Blockchain offers the potential for a systemic way to solve collective action problems.
These prophecies clearly stated, long before the innovation of the internet, that a mechanism of world inter-communication would be devised, embracing all of Mother Earth, freed from national hindrances and restrictions, and functioning with marvelous swiftness and perfect regularity. The elders called it the “Everywhere Spirit made physically manifest.” They said that all that had been covered up and hidden during the long spiritual wintertime would be revealed at this time. A new understanding of security, accountability, and trust would become transparent, with honesty and integrity, as it was in days gone past.
A world language will evolve from among all our Human Family’s existing languages. This world language will be taught in the schools of all the nations in addition to their mother tongue. A world script, world literature, a uniform and universal system of currency, of weights and measures, will simplify and facilitate unity and understanding among all the nations and peoples of the Human Family.
Science and spirituality, the two most potent forces in human life, will be reconciled, will cooperate, and will harmoniously develop. As an example, the manifestation of this prophecy has been unfolding for more than forty years, in the work of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society, (AISES).
The press under this global system, while giving full scope to the expression of the diversified views and convictions of humanity, will cease to be manipulated by vested interests, whether private or public. The press will be liberated from the influence of contending governments and peoples.
A primary prerequisite for our success in this journey is our full commitment to the unfettered and independent investigation of the truth for ourselves. This prerequisite is a fundamental obligation of each human being to acquire knowledge and understanding through their "own eyes and not through the eyes of others." This includes our very careful, in-depth reflection, consideration, and investigation of the sources from which we receive our “news”.
The economic resources of the world:
Will be organized for the welfare of all members of the Human Family.
Will ensure its sources of natural materials will be sustainably and harmoniously developed, and fully utilized without waste.
Its markets will be coordinated and developed.
the distribution of its products and services will be equitably regulated. Destitution on the one hand and gross accumulation of ownership on the other will disappear.
National rivalries and prejudice replaced by racial amity, understanding, and cooperation.
The causes of religious strife will be permanently removed, economic barriers and restrictions will be completely abolished, and the inordinate distinction between classes obliterated.
Racial, religious, and ethnic animosity, rivalries, hatreds, and intrigues will cease.
The enormous resources and energy dissipated and wasted on conflict, economic, political, or armed will be dedicated to extending the range of scientific inventions and technological developments, the increase in the productivity of humankind, and exterminating disease.
Scientific research will be devoted to:
Raising the standard of physical and systemic health.
The harmonization, integration, and optimization of the human brain.
The prolongation of human life in an ethical manner.
The ecologically sustainable development of the unused and unsuspected resources of Mother Earth.
The furtherance of any other agency that can stimulate the intellectual, moral, cultural, artistic, and spiritual life of all members of our Human Family.
In summary, these prophecies foretell:
A Global Oneness, encompassing the participation of the entire Human Family, everywhere, all at once, and exercising wise, respectful, sustainable, and harmonious development of our vast global resources.
A Global Civilization where life-enhancing Indigenous Cultural, Spiritual and Wisdom Teachings, Sacred Ceremonies and Medicines, Prophecies and profound understanding of our Mother Earth’s Natural Laws will help to enlighten and illumine all members of our Human Family.
A Global Civilization that blends and embodies the ideals of both the East and the West liberated from the curse of war and its miseries and focused on the sustainable, harmonious development of all the available sources of clean energy on the surface of Mother Earth.
A Global Governance System where Force is the servant of a Justice that is rooted in Love and Compassion and All Life is sustained by the universal recognition of One Creator.
A Global Commons is a goal towards which our Human Family, impelled by the unifying forces of Life, is undeniably and swiftly moving.
The New Global Civilization of which Indigenous Peoples and other related prophecies speak is not to be confused–even remotely–with the tyrannical new world order often fearfully alluded to by various contending sources!
This New Global Civilization is not a new world order where the extremely wealthy or a secret elite enslave most of humanity for their own selfish and greedy purposes. This New Global Civilization is neither a new world order where everyone is forced to look, act, and think the same, nor is it a new world order dominated by any nation-state, nor is it a new world order created by an Anti-Christ before an Armageddon arrives.
The manifestation of this new way of life leading to a New Global Civilization that is even now unfolding is based on the full spiritual recognition of the Oneness of the Human Family and is promised by spiritual teachers and faith traditions everywhere on Mother Earth.
This new way of living and resulting relationships will become clearer and clearer to each of us over the coming days, months, and years, each in our own way and at our own appointed time. Without question, 2021 and each succeeding year will be filled with more unexpected and dynamic changes than ever before.
Though the Spiritual Path that the Creator has traced for us may at times seem lost in the ominous shadows that are now enveloping our stricken humanity, the Eternal Light that is continuously shining upon us is of such brightness that no earthly darkness can ever eclipse its splendor.
Though we are small in numbers, and limited as yet in our experiences, powers, and resources, the Divine Force which energizes our vision and unprecedented, concerted action is limitless in its range and incalculable in its potency.
Without question, the enemies whom every acceleration in the progress of our unified work will raise up are fierce, numerous, and unrelenting. Yet if we persevere, invisible Spiritual Hosts will, as promised, rush forth to our aid, enable us to vanquish any hopes of our destruction, and will annihilate the forces of disunity.
In Conclusion: The spiritual foundation of the Indigenous world-view is the prior unity and oneness of our Human Family and all Life. Therefore, all members of our Human Family are a part of the Sacred Circle of Life. Since all members of the Human Family are a part of the Sacred Circle of Life, we are all Indigenous Peoples of our Mother Earth.
Every Human Being, a Sovereignty, Ancient, Imperishable, and Everlasting, and is fully responsible for the well-being of one another, for all Life, and for doing our very best in manifesting this new Global Civilization. We are the ones we have been waiting for. We have fresh horses, let's ride!

The Sacred Tree was created by the Four Worlds Development Project, a native American inter-tribal group, as a handbook of Native Spirituality for indigenous peoples all over the Americas and the world. This handbook is being used by the Four Worlds Development Project to eliminate widespread drug and alcohol abuse in tribal communities. It is now being shared for the first time with all members of the human family desiring personal growth.
In the book, The Sacred Tree, Indigenous values and traditions are taught as a primary key to unlocking the spiritual force of the Archetype of the Sacred Tree that will move us on the path of personal growth and development. Indigenous Elders prophesy that by returning to the life-preserving and life-enhancing spiritual values and guiding principles of the Sacred Tree, Indigenous Peoples and the Human Family will be awakened and transformed.
This transformation will have a healing effect on all of Mother Earth. We will all come to realize that we are Indigenous Peoples of Mother Earth.
The symbolism of The Sacred Tree is found at the heart of the cultural and spiritual traditions of all members of the Human Family. With great love and respect for those Walking the Red Road of spiritual understanding and personal growth, please enjoy this excerpt from The Sacred Tree.
The Story of the Sacred Tree
“For all the people of the earth, the Creator has planted a Sacred Tree under which they may gather, and there find healing, power, wisdom, and security. The roots of this tree spread deep into the body of Mother Earth. Its branches reach upward like hands praying to Father Sky. The fruits of this tree are the good things the Creator has given to the people: Teachings that show the path to love, compassion, generosity, patience, wisdom, justice, courage, respect, humility and many other wonderful gifts.
The Ancient Ones taught us that the life of the Tree is the life of the people. If the people wander far away from the protective shadow of the Tree, if they forget to seek the nourishment of its fruit or they should turn against the Tree and attempt to destroy it, great sorrow will fall upon the people. Many will become sick at heart. The people will lose their power. They will cease to dream dreams and see visions. They will begin to quarrel among themselves over worthless trifles. They will become unable to tell the truth and to deal with each other honestly. They will forget how to survive in their own land. Their lives will become filled with anger and gloom. Little by little, they will poison themselves and all they touch.
It was foretold that these things would come to pass, but that the Tree would never die. And as long as the Tree lives, the people live. It was also foretold that the day would come when the people would awaken, as if from a long, drugged sleep; that they would begin, timidly at first but then with great urgency, to search again for the Sacred Tree.
The knowledge of its whereabouts and of the fruits that adorn its branches have always been carefully guarded and preserved within the minds and hearts of our wise elders and leaders. These humble, loving and dedicated souls will guide anyone who is honestly and sincerely seeking along the path leading to the protecting shadow of the Sacred Tree."
