Hopi Traditional Elder
Thomas Banyacya

My name is Banyacya. I am a member of the Hopi sovereign nation. Traditional Hopi follow the spiritual path that was given to us by Massau'u the Great Spirit. We made a sacred covenant to follow his life plan, ... taking care of this land and life. Our goals are not to gain political control or monetary wealth, but to pray and to promote the welfare of all living beings and to preserve the world in a natural way.

In 1948, all traditional Hopi spiritual leaders met and spoke of things of great importance to all people. They selected four interpreters to carry their message of which I am the only one still living. I made a commitment to carry the Hopi message of peace and deliver warnings from prophecies...

+Thomas Banyacya died February 6, 1999, in Hopi Land.
