The Prophecy of the Rainbow Warrior
By Sliver Song Cree Blackfoot
This is the way I’ve heard the legend pass down through the ages. A time will come when the Earth and all of life will need our help. At this time, a tribe will gather from all cultures of the world. They will be recognized by their spirit connection and life-giving actions towards the finned, the winged, the creeping crawling, the standing green growing, the four-legged, the two nations, and all that is. They will awaken humankind to find a star inside themselves. This star will guide them to overcome the mountains of ignorance, prejudice, hatred, and fear through compassion, harmony, and honor. They will find a new song and a new dream. The beautiful bow that hangs in the sky after a storm is a monument to these ones. I believe we are living in this tie now. All of us with this vision are the tribe, we are the rainbow warriors, we will heal the world. We are the cherished dream and the vision of the ancient ones of long ago.
