Prophecies of Black Elk and Crazy Horse

For centuries the Native Americans have had prophecies of a time that I believe we are seeing come together now. Is it the 2012 events that are so widely looked at today? I think it is possible. I would like to share the prophecies of Black Elk and Crazy Horse that were seen in visions that they had back in the 1800s.

Both Black Elk and Crazy Horse were Oglala Lakota which many mistakenly refer to as the Sioux Nation. Lakota is the Nation and Oglala is a band within that Nation. Black Elk was a Holy Man or Medicine Man while Crazy Horse was a War leader. Both men had similar visions of the future during their lifetime.

Black Elk saw that his people would lose heart from the ordeals that they were encountering and that the Sacred Hoop of his Nation would be broken. He saw that his people would suffer from famines, sickness, and wars. Black Elk also saw hope for the future of his people. After seven generations had passed there would be a reuniting of not only his own people but of all peoples creating a new Sacred Hoop comprised of all nations of the Earth. He saw a star rising in the East that would bring wisdom. At the time Black Elk felt that meant there would be a great Prophet that would come to help the formation of the new Sacred Hoop.

Crazy Horse, the warrior, had a similar vision but his was a little more prophetic. He saw his people enter a great time of darkness. He also saw automobiles and airplanes (something not invented in his time) and also foretold of both world wars. In Crazy Horse’s vision he saw that after the last war (World War II?) his people would gradually start to come out of their darkness. He saw them begin to dance again under the Sacred Tree. To his amazement and astonishment he noticed that it was not just his own people dancing under the tree. There were members of all races of man dancing as brothers. Crazy Horse foresaw a time that the world would be healed and made whole again by all nations working together to make a better world.

There are many accounts of visions and prophecies across centuries of time by members of different Indigeneous People who lived on Turtle Island (North America). They all seem to foretell the same event with much the same outcome. After destruction and man’s disrespectful treating of our Mother Earth there will be a cleansing time and the birth of a new world where all races of man live together in harmony. If 2012 is the time of an ending, my feeling is it is also the time of a new beginning.

  1. I have not read anything from Crazy Horse but I have read some of Black Elk’s works and the man was brilliant and wise and way ahead of his time for sure.

  2. Very interesting. I hear a lot about 2012 and I don’t really pay attention saying that a “panic” and a “paranoia” are not exactly what we need. We will take care of problems when they arrived… if they arrived.
    But with what happen this year on the “ring of fire”, I start to think that some natural disasters can happen which can have the magnitude of replacing an world with another one. 1/2 of the ring of fire exploded this year: New Zealand first and Japan where the magnitude of the earthquake move the entire Japan land closer to US, and the entire land fall deeper in water… not with big dimensions, but it is a proof that cataclysms are possible. I think we have to keep on eye now on the other 1/2 of the ring, Chile had a problem, so San Andreas is the next? I don’t know!
    You have a great post and the wisdom of Black Elk and Crazy Horse must guide us.

  3. A book called Great upon the Mountain by Author Vincent Brown tells the prophecy when Crazy Horse went to Butte Mtn. On a vision quest because he knew they where not going to win this last war. He saw many black, ribbons,or snakes all over the plains , and on them were many colored Beatles and inside those Beatles he could see his people in each one. They where alive in this future time and they where the healers of those times. I remember those times.

  4. My name is Andy Anderson. I’ve been a carpenter my whole life. I’ve had the same belief that in my lifetime I will see peace with all mankind on our mother earth!

    1. I am 54. I hope you are my age. I hope to see Peace with all mankind on our mother earth too. I went to DC in 03 to protest the Iraq war. I wrote the coloring book Peace Peace Peace in hopes some one would learn. They did not listen. I followed the Water Protectors. I published the book The Story of Standing Rock by Diana Crow-Wheel. Now I am going to keep telling the story of Standing Rock. We must stand with Standing Rock.
