“DJ Mackboogaloo is providing a series of articles pertaining to Roots, Culture N’ Consciousness.  We will learn the deep metaphysical principles that exist within the world of Music.   Fela Kuti, pioneer of Nigerian Afrobeat music, coined the phrase, “Music is the weapon!”  He understood the power of sound to unify & uplift the masses.  Ancient civilizations knew this secret as well.  Let’s take a look with ears wide open and explore this topic further.”

With the rise of social networks & independent journalism, “indigenous resistance” against destructive drilling & mining activities on sovereign native lands is gaining worldwide attention & concern.  The most recent coverage has been focused on the Standing Rock Tribe (Greater Sioux Nation) and their fight (#NODAPL) to stop the North Dakota Access Pipeline in the United States.

These movements of Indigenous resistance have been a unifying force among Native nations and their non-native supporters.  This unity, which we are now seeing, has been prophesied.  It is considered the healing (mending) of the Sacred Hoop!  Many tribes share this common vision, and many have share the same “Whirling” Rainbow Prophecy.



We, Rhythm Travelers, artists & supporters of Roots N’ Culture, have been born into this special time that has been prophesied a long time ago.  It’s our duty to assist the healing (mending) of the Sacred Hoop by becoming aware of the prophecies, awakening our consciousness, and reaching out to our brothers & sisters of foreign lands under the Whirling Rainbow.



“We have much to share, one tradition with the other.  The day is here when my people, and all people, must look beyond the affairs of the Red or White race and consider the Human Race.  Having traveled many times around the world, I can only conclude that we are truly One people who could only benefit by meeting together to work out the solutions to the benefit of all, including the many creatures, birds, animals and plant life which were given to us by the Great Spirit, the Creator of all.  We must all share in the wisdom teachings & instructions of our ancestors who knew & practiced the secrets that kept our sacred Earth Mother clean and in balance & good health.”

-Mad Bear (Tuscarora/6 Nations)


“There will come a day when people of all races, colors and creeds will put aside their differences. They will come together in love, joining hands in unification, to heal the Earth and all her children. They will move over the Earth like a great Whirling Rainbow, bringing peace, understanding and healing everywhere they go. Many creatures thought to be extinct or mythical will resurface at this time; the great trees that perished will return almost overnight. All living things will flourish, drawing sustenance from the breast of our Mother, the Earth.
“The great spiritual teachers who walked the Earth and taught the basics of the truths of the Whirling Rainbow Prophecy will return and walk amongst us once more, sharing their power and understanding with all. We will learn how to see and hear in a sacred manner. Men and women will be equals in the way Creator intended them to be; all children will be safe anywhere they want to go. Elders will be respected and valued for their contributions to life. Their wisdom will be sought out. The whole human race will be called The People and there will be no more war, sickness or hunger forever.”

Navajo & Hopi prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow


 “The Red Nation shall rise again and it shall be a blessing for a sick world. A world filled with broken promises, selfishness and separations.  A world longing for light again.  I see a time of Seven Generations when all the colors of mankind will gather under the Sacred Tree of Life and the whole Earth will become one circle again.  In that day, there will be those among the Lakota who will carry knowledge and understanding of unity among all living things and the young white ones will come to those of my people and ask for this wisdom.  I salute the light within your eyes where the whole Universe dwells.  For when you are at that center within you and I am that place within me, we shall be one.”

-Chief Crazy Horse (Oglala Sioux)


“In the time of the Seventh Fire, a New People would emerge.  They would retrace their steps to find the wisdom that was left by the side of the trail long ago.  Their steps would take them to the Elders, who they would ask to guide them on their journey.  If the New People remain strong in their quest, the sacred drum will again sound its voice.  There will be an awakening of the people, and the sacred fire will again be lit.  At this time, the light-skinned race will be given a choice between two roads.  One road is the road of greed and technology without wisdom or respect for life.  This road represents a rush to destruction.  The other road is spirituality, a slower path that includes respect for all living things.  If we choose the spiritual path, we can light yet another fire, an Eight Fire, and begin an extended period of Peace and healthy growth.”

-Grandfather William Commanda (Algonquin)

“As Native Americans, we believe the Rainbow is a sign from the Spirit in all things.  It is a sign of the union of all people, like one big family.  The unity of all humanity, many tribes and peoples, is essential.”

-Thomas Banyacya (Hopi)

“This difficult time has seen the beginning of a new nation of multi-colored beings. The seeds of the four directions have mixed together to create the first Rainbow people. It is written in time and in the memory of the Indian peoples that our sun will rise again, that we will be able to re-establish our culture: its arts, sciences, mathematics and religion. Mayan knowledge will come forward again. It is for this reason that we, of the Amerindian communities, are once again uniting to reestablish our entire culture.”

– Hunbatz Men (Mayan Elder/Daykeeper)


“There is truth in the prophecies of the Rainbow and the Rainbow people. People from all of the Americas will unite with people from all the other nations, and they will realize that we are all family, brothers and sisters. This is not my personal vision, but the cosmic vision presented by all the Elders, a vision that we all share.”

– Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez aka Wandering Wolf (Maya)


“Among the few who possess inner strength to resist the mass unconsciousness will rise a new neo-indigenous people.  Prophecies foretell of a people who will rise from earth’s ashes like the Thunderbird, symbolizing rebirth.  They will bring balance and harmony back to Mother Earth.  The first of these beings will come as teachers & storytellers to remind us of ancient truths of the star people and beyond.  They will be pathfinders leading the way to a new universe, a new reality.  Great leaders, Warriors & Shamans of many nations will be born and they will cleanse the earth for rebirth.  Next will come the Planters sowing seeds of truth, justice & freedom.  The Storytellers, Warriors & Planters will live in the way of the Great Spirit and teach ways to keep Mother of the Ground sacred forevermore. They will be called Rainbow Warriors for they will gather the four sacred directions, all distinctly separate but forever connected in the Circle of Life.”

– Lee Standing Bear Moore (Cherokee, Manataka American Indian Council)


“This is the 8th Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long (hippies) like my people, come and join the tribal nations to learn their ways & wisdom.”

– White Feather (Hopi)
