Amazing myself that Blue Star Kachina hadn’t been entered into this Blog, as you know the main purpose of my posts is to begin topics for further research and/or to keep references, videos and links for later (to myself). My hope is to return to pages and improve, update and provide more information to corroborate. Therefore, I apologize to the reader in advance, if some of the material, such as Blue Star Kachina copied from Wikipedia (as below). Note, there are many resources for Hopi knowledge.

Red Earth Consultants is a collaboration with First Nations from Canada to design and build high-tech green-homes using Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) imported from China and assembled in British Columbia. The BC corp is strategically aligned with Port Alberni Groups to assemble homes en-mass in Canada, to address a critical housing shortage for Canada’s indigenous people. The next-generation, smart-homes are built to last, safe, strong and hi-tech with a custom west coast finish and native -art touch.

Wisdom of all indigenous people becomes more valuable as we witness climate changes and experience weather challenges on a local and regional level. Now more than ever, we will appreciate the logic of a tribe or band as can learn much about co-operation from our native friends and colleagues. First Nations deserve the title and we need to honour them as such and be grateful now, that tribes remained strong.

Blue Star Kachina

In Frank Waters‘s writings on Hopi mythology, the Blue Star Kachina or Saquasohuh, is a kachina or spirit, that will signify the coming of the beginning of the new world by appearing in the form of a blue star. The Blue Star Kachina is said to be the ninth and final sign before the “Day of Purification”, described as a catastrophe or a “world engulfing cataclysm” that will lead to the purification of planet Earth. Author Jason Colavito investigated this prophecy and found no reference to it before the late twentieth century.

According to Hopi prophecy (as reported by Waters), shortly after the Blue Star Kachina is visible to all and the Day of Purification is realized, the True White Brother will come to earth in search of Hopi “who steadfastly adhere to their ancient teachings.” It is said that if the True White Brother fails in his mission and is unable to find uncorrupted men and women, that the earth will be completely destroyed and none will be spared. However, if successful in bringing the symbols and finding those who still follow the true Hopi way of life, the world will be created anew and all the faithful will be saved from destruction.
