~ Voice of White Buffalo Calf Woman ~
“Aho! Greetings from the Rainbow Tribes,
I am White Buffalo Calf Woman, offering the chanunpa, as the sacred “Pipe of Peace”. I invite you to join me in offering gratitude and prayer to the Great White Spirit as the world ushers in a new Millennium of Peace and Harmony.
According to the Hopi Prophecy, when birds fall from the sky and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, who by their actions and deeds, shall make the earth green again. They will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow. This is an auspicious time, a time of gathering the rainbow tribes into a harmonious blend of human alliance. We are here to initiate the most joyous era this planet has ever known, a period of renewed harmony that will see the two-legged awaken, the four-legged flourish, the rivers run pure, and humankind in conscious exchange with the stars. It has been prophesied that the day will come in which all cultures of the 12 rainbow tribes shall smoke the pipe of peace, passing it from one hand to the next, inclusive of all people and all our relations. The ancient prophecy speaks truth. This gathering of the tribes, celebrated by the opening of a new potential in a new millennium is here now.
With this holy pipe the male and female live in balance and harmony. (she ceremoniously joins the pipe stem with the bowl) With this holy pipe in your hands, your feet rest upon the earth and the pipestem reaches into the sky. (she touches the bowl to the earth with the stem pointing upward) The breath of your human body becomes a living bridge between the Sacred Beneath and the Sacred Above.
Wakan Tanka smiles upon us when we come together as one: earth, sky, the two-leggeds, the four-leggeds, the swimmers, the winged ones, the crawly ones, the trees, the stones, the grasses and all living things. We are all one family and the smoking of this pipe binds us together.
I pass this pipe into your hands, smoke and offer your prayers to the Earth Mother, smoke and offer your prayers to Father Sky, smoke and offer your prayers of the Heart. Then in all reverence, pass it on as it continues around the circle of One, for we are all one circle.
We, the bearers of peace, are no longer for the few. We share our ways. We share our ceremonies. We are walking into a new world unraveling the veils of Love. We ask that you share your love with those most dear to you. Share this smoke of the rainbow tribes to create harmony amongst yourselves. A new life awaits you, a life of peace, love and harmony amongst all the tribes on earth and beyond. A new life awaits. Aho”
