Kachina — heavenly teacher Hopi

April 28, 2012 20:47

Thousands of years ago the ancestors of the Hopi have lived on the continent, by the Pacific Ocean. They called this continent Kasskara. But once the land Kasskary split, and ocean abyss gradually swallowed them. There remained only the land that lay on the dais, they became islands in the South Pacific Ocean. When the continent Kasskara disappeared in the ocean, there Kachinas, "great and wise." Kachinas were beings endowed with flesh, their home was a planet Toonaoteka. The Hopi say that "wise" have visited our planet at different times.

Rock paintings Hopi

Kachinas were different: educators, teachers and guardians of the law. Teachers are experts in various fields of science. Midwife, for example, helped mothers, astronomer handed people the knowledge of celestial mechanics, the metallurgist is taught humans to mine and process metals.

To this day, the Hopi make dolls representing their alien masters, Kachinas. They need them, said Elder, first, to ensure that people were not arrogant and haughty. Second, people need to remember that Kachinas ever return … Be sure to come back.

Hopi say dolls give a true idea of the appearance of the ancient Kachinas. None of the dolls are not alike, because every Kachinas was unique and had him alone inherent strengths and capabilities.

Dolls painted with different colors and symbols, wearing distinctive helmets similar to the antenna rods — that is thousands of years ago looked real Kachinas, a teacher from a distant planet Toonaoteka. These items hint at relationship with the cosmos. In addition, the ancient rock paintings depict cupped spherical devices Kachinas, their "flying shields" in which they were flying over land, water and in the clouds and could take Kachinas to their home planet.

In the Hopi Reservation in Arizona, near the village Oraib, is a stone basin, which is not allowed to the public. All the walls are covered with thousands and thousands of rock paintings. This "Art Gallery" shows the history of the Hopi Tribe, and the story is clearly not the same as the conventional modern theories.

Involuntary Resettlement

The Indians say that the ancestors of the Hopi Kachinas saved: several approaches they took them to the "flying billboards" with those who are perishing Atlantis and landed on the shores of South America. In the legends says that "flying shields" superficially resembles half pumpkins.

Hopi arrival in South America was the beginning of a new era in the history of this nation. Indians have multiplied their family, native community split into many tribes. Some of them have moved in the last millennium to the North American continent. Other tribes have gone to high altitude in South America and settled in sredneamerikanskih forests.

Ancient capital, which remembers every Hopi, was the city Palatkuapi (today called the city of Palenque). Over the centuries, the Hopi have lived peacefully and happily in Palatkuapi until overpopulation is not forcing them to withdraw from their homes and go to the development of remote mountain lands. Over time, their relationship with the capital increasingly weakened. Kachinas also left Palatkuapi and flew home.

Histories of the Hopi against traditional scientific theory that South America was settled from the north to the south. But the generally accepted theory of settlement may be in error and some of the latest archaeological discoveries, such as the Mayan culture researcher Norman Hammond, prove it. In Yucatan, he found pottery dating to 2600 BC. e., that somehow confirms — Mexican peninsula area was inhabited by at least fifteen hundred years earlier than commonly thought.

In the manner of execution of the dolls and Hopi petroglyphs found some overlap with motifs weaving pre-Inca tribes. Neighborhood of modern Peruvian town of Paracas two thousand years ago, people were settled, which became known for its variety of brilliant home-spun products. Their shawls and carpets depict the same Kachinas. In Paracas culture burials found the dead wrapped in cloth, decorated with geometric designs and stylized figures. Motifs depicted in these tissues back to the history of the Hopi, who today live for several thousand kilometers to the north.


Striking consonance Hopi legends, researchers found in the mythology of Kayapo Indians living in the Upper Amazon. Each year, the tribe said a special holiday dedicated to their heavenly teacher. By that date, the men and women of the tribe weave bast garment of his teacher. This is a private suit in which there are no holes for the eyes, mouth and nose. That's right, according to the Kayapo, looked their heavenly teacher named Bep-Kororoti.

Once in the mountains, telling the Indians, there was a deafening roar, and came down from heaven, Bep-Kororoti. He was wearing a ceremonial robe that covered him from head to foot, and in his hand, "cop" — weapons, struck by lightning. Terrified residents fled to the forest villages. Men tried to protect women and children, and some even had intended to fight the intruder. But their spears and arrows, barely touching the clothes Bep-Kororoti, immediately broke.

Arrived from the depths of the universe exists, must entertain the weakness of human weapons. To demonstrate its power, Bep-Kororoti sent "cop", first on the tree, and then on the stone and destroy them in an instant. The ranks of the Indians came confusion. In the end, even the most courageous warriors of the tribe had to put up with Bep-Kororoti. As he excelled the wisdom of living on Earth, people are gradually penetrated its credibility. He organized the construction of the "house men" (now are being built in all villages Kayapo). In fact, this house was the school, and a teacher in its heavenly teacher.

Ancient capital, which remembers every Hopi, was the city Palatkuapi, now it is called Palenque

During the hunt, Bep Kororoti-killed animals, without causing pain, and gave all the booty Kayapo, since he did not need to diet. Once Bep-Kororoti for no apparent reason has disappeared, and then just as suddenly reappeared. However, he was a terrible noise, screaming that he had lost one of the things he owned. The Indians could not grasp what they should look for. Desperate to find a lost, extraterrestrial goodbye to the Indians, but several soldiers followed him and followed his way up to the mountain range. The fact that they appear, put it on the horror.

With his arms hacked Kororoti Bep-wide clearing in the forest. Then came the thunder from heaven had torn all around. Dropped to the ground something like a house, and Bep-Kororoti disappeared in it. Heaven flashed fire, a giant cloud of smoke enveloped the earth, thunder boomed creepy. The earthquake pulled out shrubs and trees with roots. Wild beasts fled in terror, leaving their homes for a long time.


Myths about Kachinas affect all Hopi worldview, their way of life and religion. Kachinas are related to the ancient knowledge of the origin of the tribe, with his travels and life in Palatkuapi. Since writing among the Hopi not unprecedented value to their crops have elderly people with a strong pas, myatyu. "All the knowledge had value for the tribe, during the absence of writing imprinted in their memory, because the best way to preserve and transmit the knowledge they were not. Death of one of those old people were like fire in the national library — many of knowledge were lost forever. " The same goes for dancing. A ritual dance and the memory makes a special character as it passes from one generation to its basic idea. Teach dance, repeating for a mentor. Hopi dance training has become a ritual, a sacred sacrament.

A hundred years ago, anthropologist John W. Fyukis wrote a treatise on the striking Hopi ceremonies. In particular — has described the dance of snakes, perhaps best known ritual Hopi. Most of it is held by the priests of snakes, but they share the secret ritual with the priests of antelope, which they "assisting". During the holiday recall the mythical Hopi emergence in the world, set the "connection with extraterrestrial spirit." Dances have initially predetermined rhythm and consist of multiple shapes.

Almost all the ancient religions testify teacher come from the depths of the universe and learned men. Inca rulers called themselves sons of the sun. They, like the pharaohs of ancient Egypt, believed descended from the gods from outer space.

Mayan, Toltec and Astek, creating their stone idols, necessarily "handed" to them some symbols of power, similar weapons "cop." Same "Thunderbolts" and the inhabitants of heaven were the gods of the ancient Greeks and Indians. Too many coincidences found in the myths and legends of the people living in different parts of the world, and South America still harbors many mysteries.
