there would come a time, when the earth being ravaged and polluted, the forests being destroyed, the birds would fall from the air, the waters would be blackened, the fish being poisoned in the streams, and the trees would no longer be, mankind as we would know it would all but cease to exist.
This is how the ‘Rainbow prophecy’ begins, as retold by a woman of the Cree Indian nation of America over a century ago.
– Prophecy as told by Lee Brown of the Salish Tribe at the 1986 Continental Indigenous Council, Alaska A particularly interesting part of the prophecy relates to the choosing of leaders.
According to the story, a leader will not be the one that talks the loudest, boasts of successes, or has the support of the elite.
Whether beings from the past will interfere or not, one thing is for sure, life cannot continue in this way forever.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The Source of the Cree Legend is Lelanie Fuller Stone, a Cherokee Medicine Woman and Writer, from a story told her by Grandmother as a young girl.
The Rainbow prophecy, as it has come to be known, refers to the keepers of the legends, rituals, and other myths that will be needed when the time comes to restore the health on Earth.
