For centuries the peoples of the Americas have expected the coming of a warrior generation. They knew that the eagle’s claw of European civilisation would inflict terrible torments on their own communities.

This was an horrendous experience but one that many accepted as part of the process of man’s journey. It was a very grave sacrifice that would one-day lead to an upsurge of compassion and global renewal.

For my own part my ancestors were amongst those who suffered most. It is easy to cry picturing my forbears of the Arawak tribes suffering genocide. It is equally painful to picture my African slave ancestors toiling to the whip under the harsh Caribbean sun. This horror was all perpetrated to profit a tiny few families seeking to feed the European craving for sugar in their tea.
The suffering of other indigenous communities continues all over the globe. Unseen tribes are burned alive in the Amazon so that they won’t hamper the expanding of farms for our Soya and cattle. Island nations suffer the pollution of their shores by our waste. Minority indigenous populace are still being marginalized and stripped of their land rights and voices. Their histories are erased from textbooks and their knowledge kept from mainstream global thought.

Sadly first contact with these peoples was often accompanied by orders to destroy any evidence of their being civilised and intelligent. Kill the chiefs, kill the wise, kill the history keepers, kill the story tellers burn all the evidence of their achievements.

The methodology was very obvious. There would be far greater up-cry from the average European citizen if they realised cultures as advanced as their own were being put to the sword or enslaved for profit. They could easier accept the stories of sub-human creatures to stupid for anything but cheap labour.

The consensus reality we inhabit seemingly always leaves some space for energetic renewals. After a forest burns the shoots of new life grow faster and stronger than ever before. This is why the remaining knowledge from some of the devastated human communities around the world has now exploded outward. Where the soil of the soul was stripped bear is where we should expect the most powerful push toward a brighter tomorrow.
The prophets and visionaries of many tribes saw not only the devastation to come, but also the positive potential it would activate in mankind. Casting their view forward by such means as they had developed in their mystery traditions they noted likely futures. In an extraordinary case of mass synchronicity dozens of separate tribal peoples noted visions of a coming special generation. The time of their arrival would be made clear by certain destructive global events.
There are then many versions of this particular prophecy. It has even inspired such things as the environmentalist movement Greenpeace's naming of a ship. as well as musicians and artists. It is known as the Prophecy of the Rainbow Warriors. This is just one telling as ascribed to the 19th century mystic Eyes of Fire a wise-women of the Ininiwok peoples, commonly known now as the Cree Indians:
The sky is clouding, the grass is fading,
People in anguish, the dark is rising.
The Earth She writhes beneath the claws
of the minds that are poisoned

Her children tossed on the waves
of cruel desire and corruption
It could be you, don't shrink away
from the need of the hour

Don't turn away from the hand
stretched in pain of your Mother.
Her name means freedom, Her body earthgreen,
Her blood clear water, her voice is birdsong.

The Earth cries out, can't you hear,
take your courage in hand now.m
Our deeds must speak of the love for all beings
waxing strong now

We can't allow the heartless ones
to destroy this great wonder
Slaughtering wales, felling trees,
with no thought for the future.

Here rule the demons, they love no creature,
Their words are poison, they weave dark futures.
A-a-a-a-ah
A-a-a-a-ah

Gather all ye who love the world
from distant lands beneath the tall sky
In visions past I have seen you awake the spirit moving

Gather all ye who love the world
from distant lands beneath the tall sky
In visions past I have seen you awake the spirit moving

And now the wind is shifting, the tide is turning,
The mist is rising, a rainbow forming

Rainbow warriors, the stars are calling
Rainbow warriors, the trees are falling
Rainbow warriors, the spirit dying,
Rainbow warriors, the world is crying out in pain.

And I shall never rest in peace till this cruel reign is ended
And all the children of the Earth shall be free,
Her wounds all mended.
Your time has come, make the Earth green again,
don't delay now.

Victory has been foreseen for the people who do.
Rainbow warriors, create new Eden,
Clear rain a'falling, blue sky unending,

Unfearful faces, starlight revealing,
Small creatures dancing, glad voices singing,
Free children playing with chains that are broken,

Rainbow warriors, the future lies within your hands.
The prophecy has a powerful resonant effect upon all of us awakening human beings. We see clearly the very signs for the fulfilment of its message. I know that just about every time I have read this over the years I ended up in tears. Yet within was a solid knowing that this was the purpose of my time and that I to was invited to take up the banner and contribute to the healing process. It has been the driving force behind my own work for a decade and I suspect many environmentalists, writers, researchers and spiritual speakers would likely echo that sentiment.
The prophecy is very clear that it is not talking about a coming generation of American Indian people alone. People from all the distant lands beneath the tall sky are welcomed to pitch in. Every colour in the human rainbow family is fully invited to lend a hand.

Ininiwok/Cree: There would come a time when the "keepers of the legend, stories, culture rituals, and myths, and all the Ancient Tribal Customs" would be needed to restore us to health, making the earth green again.

Ininiwok/Cree: The Rainbow Warriors would show the peoples that this "Ancient Being" (the Great Spirit), is full of love and understanding, and teach them how to make the "Earth or Elohi" beautiful again.

Patricio Dominguez, Pueblo: The ancestors said that... there would come a time when the Earth would become very sick. Because of this unrelenting greed of the new culture, the Earth would be filled with deadly liquids and metals, the air would be rendered foul with smoke and ash, and even the rains, which were intended to cleanse the Earth, would plummet in poison drops. Birds would fall from the sky, fish and would turn belly up in the waters and whole forests would begin to die.

Patricio Dominguez, Pueblo: 'Under the symbol of the rainbow, all of the races and all of the religions of the world would band together to spread the great wisdom of living in harmony with each other and with all the creations of the Earth. Those who taught this way would come to be known as "the rainbow warriors". Although they would be warriors, they would carry with them the spirits of the ancestors, they would carry the light of knowledge in their heads and love in their hearts, and they would do no harm to any other living thing. The legend said that after a great struggle, using only the force of peace, these rainbow warriors would finally bring an end to the destruction and desecration of Mother Earth and that peace and plenty would then reign through a long, joyous and peaceful golden age here on Mother Earth.'

Lee Standing Bear Moore, Manataka American Indian Council: Among the few who possess inner strength to resist the mass unconsciousness will rise a new neo-indigenous people. Prophecies foretell of a people who will rise from earth's ashes like the thunderbird, symbolizing rebirth. They will bring balance and harmony back to Mother Earth. The first of these beings will come as teachers and storytellers to remind us of ancient truths of the star people and beyond. They will be pathfinders leading the way to a new universe, a new reality.

Lee Standing Bear Moore, Manataka American Indian Council: Great leaders, Warriors and Shamans of many nations will be born and they will cleanse the earth for rebirth. Next will come the Planters sowing seeds of truth, justice and freedom. The Storytellers, Warriors and Planters will live in the way of the Great Spirit and teach ways to keep Mother of the Ground sacred forevermore. They will be called Rainbow Warriors for they will gather the four sacred directions, all distinctly separate but forever connected in the Circle of Life.
Rather than post every single discussion on the prophecy and each unique variation I will trust the message is clear enough. In this time of social and environmental degradation the Rainbow Warriors represent the forces destined to turn back the tide. With no central church or set of beliefs and no fixed religion or dogma it is prophecy open to all.

In fact few Rainbow Warriors even refer to themselves as such in conversation. Being a Rainbow Warrior is a truth best kept alive inside the heart. Amongst the Rainbow Warriors are people who may seem more correctly Buddhists, Hindus, Spiritualists, Christians, Alchemists, Pagans and myriad other spiritual seekers of every path imaginable. Though some spiritual beliefs may differ the cause at hand is one with them all.
So many other prophecy have come to fruition in our times that it may not be so shocking to discover we came here knowing what we were to face. As the calendar of the Maya ticks down we all feel a sense of trepidation and excitement for the future. Rainbow Warriors feel the call to perform the required tasks. For those recently awoken these tasks include:

Sharing information and experiences that may help wake any still slumbering brethren.

Peacefully bringing down the corrupt regimes holding sway over our beautiful mother earth.
Freeing us from the yoke of financial enslavement by ending the central banking system.
Eradication of the mass marketing of perpetual materialism.
End obsolescence by design and return to the ‘built to last’ mentality.
Bring an end to any wholly unnecessary slaughter of innocent creatures of the air, sea and land
Prevent any further devastation of the few remaining tropical rainforests and ancient woodlands.
Provide time and opportunity for each being to explore self-contemplation, self-development and spiritual leanings in line wit their own core voice. Certainly as vital to health and happiness as time for education or time to forge a career.


The Rainbow Warriors are certainly not a new cult or religion. There is no fixed list of characteristics and any necessary specified aura colour, skin colour or spiritual faith. There is no fixed year from which we can say they first began to appear on the planet or when they will have finished arriving. Certainly there is no requirement for any special lines of products, diets, schools or doctrines.

Though some number do have psychic abilities or spiritual experiences already under their belt these things are open to anyone interested in attaining them. The only requirements are caring about the future of all living things and having an interest in development of a deeper connection to the web of life itself.

Don't turn away from the hand
stretched in pain of your Mother.
Her name means freedom, Her body earthgreen,
Her blood clear water, her voice is birdsong.

Rainbow warriors, the future lies within your hands.

Kudos and wado to you for this , Kat. I was first made aware of this prophecy back in 2003. I've kept a copy of it in front of my yearly journals since then. I've also posted this on Facebook, my profile on Myspace and on the Cherokee Path earlier today. Blessings, Light and Peace in Our Quest for Truth.

This is beautiful kat.
Sometimes I can`t understand why europeans had this urge to destroy everything . When did they lose their connection with the earth??? How could their culture overcome all the others?
When our civilization crashes the only ones that will survive will be those who live in harmony with mother earth , those who know her ways .

This is a very powerful message and deserves a wide public expossure. I harbour a passion for our planet and the animals and forrests upon it. What was done to the American Indians was a terrible thing they were amongst the first peoples to experience the genocide of their people.Quite often when I begain to despair at the actions of mankind I am comforted by the legend of the Rainbow Warriors and the hope it brings.Thank you for posting it.

“The Hopi Declaration Of Peace”

It is in the Power of the True Hopi People to unify the minds and
spirits of all true peace-seeking peoples of the earth.

"Hopi" means "Peaceful People" and the truest and greatest power
is the strength of Peace because Peace is the Will of The Great Spirit.

But do not think that just because the True Hopi People have been told
by the Great Spirit never to take up arms that the True Hopi People will
not fight and even die for what we know to be the right way of Life.

The True Hopi People know how to fight without killing or hurting.

The True Hopi People know how to fight with Truth and Positive Force In
The Light of The Great Spirit.

The True Hopi People know how to fight and educate by clear thoughts,
good pictures, and by carefully chosen words.

The True Hopi People know how to show to all the world's children the
True Way of Life by setting an example and by working and communicating
in a way that reaches the minds and hearts of all people who are truly seeking
the methods of a Simple and Spiritual Life which is the only Life that will survive.......

(The Hopi are an indigenous tribal people in Arizona)

The above testimony i believe to be in perfect harmony with The Teachings and
The Life example of the One called The Messiah.

There is but one thing i would change in the Hopi testimony.

I believe "the truest and greatest power" is The Only True GOD(Great Spirit),
Father(Creator) of ALL, and The Spirit of Peace is but one of HIS Spiritual
attributes, Light, Life, Truth, Love, Peace, Mercy, Grace, Wisdom,,,,,etc.......

Simply, i believe all that is truly Good is Spirit and is of The Only True GOD.......

And i select "none of the above" when given a list of the religious systems of
this world to select from, for i believe "religion", of any flavor, is anti-messiah.......

Peace, in spite of the dis-ease(no-peace) that is of this world....... francisco

A Truly Beautiful Message and Spoken With Words of Wisdom and Truth. If you look into your Soul and Seek Out Truth You Shall Find The Great Spirit. For I Believe This Spirit Will Show You The Way Forward. You Will Know The Truth, You Will See The Right Path, You Will Hear Our Mother Earth Calling, You Will Hear The Wonderful Creatures That Dwell On Our Mother Earth Calling, You Will Hear Your Like-Minded Fellow Humans Calling, You Will Hear The Oceans Calling, You Will Hear the Skies Calling, You Will Hear The Forests Calling, You Will Hear The Rivers Calling & If You Listen Carefully The Great Spirit Will Guide You and You Will Start To Bring New Life To Our Mother Earth & All That Lives, Breathes & Grows On Its Decaying Surface. You Will Not Hear The Truth With Your Ears, You Will Feel The Truth With Your Soul, The Great Spirit Will Show You The Way & If You Follow That Way - OUR MOTHER EARTH WILL FLOURISH ONCE MORE.
