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.
