Rainbow Prophecy is NOT! Real!...Legend of the Rainbow Warriors
Is fake, Just a story! LMAO!......Rainbows got to go!
Since the early 1970s, a legend of Rainbow Warriors has inspired some environmentalists in the United States with a belief that their movement is the fulfillment of a Native American prophecy. Usually the story is claimed to be Hopi or Cree. However, the origin of the "prophecy" is not Native American at all, but rather from a 1962 book titled Warriors of the Rainbow by William Willoya and Vinson Brown from Naturegraph Publishers. Brown, who is attributed with research into Hopi prophecies, is the founder and owner of Naturegraph Publishers.
The roots of that myth go back to a book called Warriors of the Rainbow. It was basically an evangelical Christian tract which was published in 1962. If anything, it was an attack on Native culture. It was an attempt to evangelize within the Native American community.
The modern story, misrepresented as ancient prophecy, is an example of "fakelore." While there are variations on the theme, especially as it has become popularized in Internet memes, the common thread in all versions of the story is that a time of crisis will come to the Earth, that people of many races will come together to save the planet, and it is always erroneously credited as being a Native American or First Nations prophecy: "It is said there will be a time when the trees are dying, blah, blah, blah. There will be a tribe of people who come and save the Earth and they will be called the Rainbows." Some versions of the story specifically state that this new tribe will inherit the ways of the Native Americans, or that Native ways will die out to be replaced by the new ways of the "Rainbow" people.
The legend said [the Native Americans] would also be joined by many of their light-skinned brothers and sisters, who would in fact be the reincarnate souls of
the Indians who were killed or enslaved by the first light-skinned settlers. It was said that the dead souls of these first people would return in bodies of all different colors: red, white,
yellow and black. Together and unified, like the colors of the rainbow, these people would teach all of the peoples of the world how to have love and reverence for Mother Earth, of whose very
stuff we human beings are also made..
Warriors of the Rainbow relates these fictitious "Indian" prophecies to the Second Coming of Christ and has been described as purveying "a covert anti-Semitism throughout, while evangelizing against traditional Native American spirituality."
The book The Greenpeace Story, states that Greenpeace co-founder Bob Hunter was given a copy of Warriors of the Rainbow by a wandering dulcimer maker in 1969 and he passed it around on the first expedition of the Don't Make a Wave Committee, the precursor of Greenpeace. The legend inspired the name of three Greenpeace ships, Rainbow Warrior, used in environmental protection protests as well as the name of the hippie group, the Rainbow Family.
Native American author and poet Sherman Alexie has addressed this belief in the "inner Indian" and the ways "American whites have co-opted Indian culture,"
notably in his poem, "How to Write the Great American Indian Novel":
White people must carry an Indian deep inside themselves.
If the interior Indian is male then he must be a warrior, especially if he is inside a white man.
In the Great American Indian novel, when it is finally written,
all of the white people will be Indians and all of the Indians will be ghosts

- Neither do we support or endorse any group, organization or individuals who misappropriate First Nation's History, Culture or Spiritual beliefs.
Many may do this due to ignorance, however far too many do it out of a false sense of entitlement and personal ego issues.
While all indigenous people appreciate everyone, who stands with us in the fight to protect water and life, this does not convey permission for anyone to present themselves, their groups, nor organizations as Indigenous or to mis-teach our History and Ceremonies.
When nonindigenous do this, it is just an act of, and continues the further acts of genocide against the lands original inhabitants.
I just don’t get it! These “Lakota Rainbow Warriors” Who Invited the Rainbow people to the Black Hills and Support the people trying make a deal with the Black Hills Treaty...Against the wishes of our Spiritual leaders, against the Nacha’s (Tribal Headsman) against the Treaty Council and against the Elders…want to blame me for it! And are now threatening me physically and posting that they will remove me from advocating for the people!
Everything I have been doing has been for the people! Not one thing has been for myself! UUWS has lots of support and have a great track record of advocating for the people. We don’t sell T-shirts; we don’t sell Leonard Peltier items for profit for our self! Everything we have done has been out of our own pocket…No nonprofit! Just hard work and sacrifice.
These Lakota Rainbow Warriors supported the Rainbow people’s desecration of a sacred site; they support Alcohol and growing weed on the Reservations. They’re supported by the BIA/IRA form of
leadership! Yet they call me a Fed…They have no Wolakota! They are assimilated they support getting moneys from the Black Hills and the selling of our lands (buy back). They must have been
played off! We heard that some of our friends have been offered money to turn on us! I wonder how many turned
So these Lakota Rainbows are mad at me for causing division! Why? Because, I don’t support them? Yet they are using our youth as a pawn to get what they want? They main one doing all the threatening works for a Children’s support program? And Law firm? And they condone this thug mentality?...WOW! someone is defiantly getting paid off…
The Unity Concert, Black Hills Initiative & Rainbow Connection.
Our very own “Lakota Rainbows” were played like a fiddle and continue to be deceived! You would think someone as smart as Chase Lying Eyes, Cody Hall, James Hawk and others would have seen through this.
The post bellow was found on a Rainbow page posted by a Rainbow. I could have not said this any better! Keep in mind the “REAL” Rainbows chose not to attend the gathering in the Black Hills! This is why it went from 7-20 thousand to barely 2,000 people including our very own misguided “Lakota Rainbows” who fell Hook Line and sinker to their tactics...Using the carrot on a pole (Marijuana and Hemp) under the disguise of the environment, Love and Brotherhood…LOL..
In these cases (Except the Unity concert, just a front to promote the Initiative) our spiritual leaders, treaty Leaders and elders have spoken against this! As Lakota’s these are the people we
listen too! What the hell is their problem? They of all people should know this! And based on our 150-200 years of experience in dealing with the Wasicu they should know better.
“”So what's up with this "World Rainbow Family?" Follow the money, folks. Who can afford to attend a World Rainbow Gathering in Morocco? Not your typical gas juggling kids in a broken down school bus, or your average American hippy family on vacation. No, the attendees at these world gatherings tend to be rich jet setting trust fund trendies from Europe and the States infatuated with Native American lore aka the Sedona/New Age varieties.Then snake oil salesmen like Real Paul Denton and Rainbow Hawk sell them on the White Buffalo prophecy because these rich Europeans have no cultural/religious heritage of their own (unless you count the rock festivals they hold at Stonehenge).
It works because in Morocco or Hungary there isn't any authentic Native Americans to call them on their shit. By tying the White Buffalo prophecy to the Rainbow Family they become the
"Profits".... errrr .... Prophets .... in a way they could never get away with in the States. After conning these folks for years they desperately needed the Annual to be held in South Dakota
with the Lakota in order to give then "street creds" (even tho the Lakota are not into the White Buffalo prophecy as much as these con artists would like for them to believe) with these shameless
Native wannabees from Europe.
At the next World Rainbow Gathering you can bet there will be fanciful stories of shared visions with Lakota "holy men" validating their position as "Rainbow Shaman." It all seems kind of
silly but most of these Europeans have never been to an Annual and these clowns pass themselves off as representivies of all things "Rainbow" Of course, in these murky circumstances there is
money to be had, but mostly it's an ego stroke. The folks running the World Rainbow Family (like Denton) would be duct taped and run out of the gathering if they ever showed up here.””
