We are the ones we have been waiting for

The Hopi Elders Speak

We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For


You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour.

Now you must go back and tell the people that this is The Hour.

And there are things to be considered:


Where are you living?

What are you doing?

What are your relationships?

Are you in right relation?

Where is your water?

Know your garden.

It is time to speak your Truth.

Create your community. Be good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader.


This could be a good time!

There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.

Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water. See who is in there with you and celebrate.

At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!

Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.

All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.


–The Elders Oraibi, Arizona Hopi Nation


I am happy to be in the river with you.

    My name is Yvonne Post. I am traveling west with my 5 Angora goats promoting Sustainable Weed Control and plan to be in the Madison area on Monday, Aug. 12. Would you be interested in a free outreach program about using goats for Sustainable Weed Control? Here is a recent article/radio program about my goats (http://www.newsworks.org/index.php/local//roxborough-feature/55436-goats-)…they have quite the portfolio in the greater Philadelphia area. I am moving them to a farm in Oregon and we are beginning our journey in Fairmount Park, Philadelphia with the Friends of the Wissahickon as the culmination of a 3 year research project regarding control of invasive plant species in park lands. I thought it would be fun and educational to offer free programs in selected areas as we travel. We can do a short program in an open space, preferably with poison ivy, bamboo, multiflora rose, mile-a-minute or other invasive that you’d like to test out.
