Hopi Legend: The Portal Between Worlds

Hopi Legend: The Portal Between Worlds 1

Hopi  legend tells that the current earth is the Fourth World to be inhabited  by Tawa’s creations. The story essentially states that in each previous  world, the people, though originally happy, became disobedient and  lived contrary to Tawa’s plan; they engaged in sexual promiscuity,  fought one another and would not live in harmony. Thus, the most  obedient were led (usually by Spider Woman) to the next higher world,  with physical changes occurring both in the people in the course of  their journey, and in the environment of the next world. In some  stories, these former worlds were then destroyed along with their wicked  inhabitants, whereas in others the good people were simply led away  from the chaos which had been created by their actions. (strangely like the theme of Saddam and Gomorrah scenario)

Two main versions exist as to the Hopi’s emergence into the present Fourth World. The more prevalent is that Spider Grandmother  caused a hollow reed (or bamboo) to grow into the sky, and it emerged  in the Fourth World at the sipapu. The people then climbed up the reed  into this world, emerging from the sipapu. The location of the sipapu is  given as in the Grand Canyon. (take note of that highlighted portion for later)The  Hopi believed that they came into this world through a hole in the sky  of the world below. That hole lies deep within the depths of the Grand  Canyon.


In the chilling book, “Hunt For the Skinwalker”  by Colm A. Kelleher, PhD., and George Knapp, researchers studied a  ranch in Northeastern Utah that had a huge slew of weird phenomenon  going on, everything from strange creatures, weird lights, UFOs,  poltergeist activity, dead animals, and some kind of light in which a  tunnel opened, allowing creatures to come and go. This ranch, referred  to as “Skinwalker” ranch was interestingly in Native American country  where skinwalkers were often reported (shape-shifting creatures).  On page 145 while two men were doing reconnaissance on the ranch at  night, they saw a small yellowish light growing larger and larger. “The  dirty yellow expanding light seemed to be positioned just above the  ground…`It’s a tunnel, not just a light.’ Mike whispered (as he looked  through binoculars). `Jesus Christ.’ Mike said hoarsely. `Something is  in the tunnel!’…`Oh my God,’ Mike said suddenly, thoroughly frightened.  `There is a black creature climbing out. I see his head.’” At that point, he witnessed a Bigfoot-like creature emerge.

A hollow reed…. A tunnel.

I’m  always excited when I find strange similarities in folklore and  storytelling that ties things together. We have the Hopi believing man  entered from other worlds in a hole in the Grand Canyon. In the cavern within the Grand Canyon, giant mummies were described. Then, at Skinwalker Ranch incident. we have with creatures entering and exiting  another dimensional portal described as Bigfoot-looking. Hmmmm

If  you want a theory that ties this together, my guess would be that  creatures from another world have lived here before and come and go  still through portals. They were not only found in the caves in the  Grand Canyon as the interestingly advanced civilization, but also still  come and go, as in the Skinwalker Ranch incident, and Bigfoot sightings. In fact, some of most reported population along the Appalachian Trail area is some of the most cave-riddled part of the country.  Is the reason Bigfoot is so hard to find that he simply is highly  intelligent, for all his rough and gruff exterior? And does he know he  can come and go as he wishes through these “portals?”  Did the Hopi see  the same portals that were seen on Skinwalker Ranch and possibly create a  legend to explain this phenomenon?

And, are the portals otherworldly or of this one?
