Many Native American tribes like the Hopi, Zuni, and Navajo believe extraterrestrial beings visited Earth. Often, we see depictions of Star Beings on ancient petroglyphs.
Lesser known are the stories about Star Beings, who mated with human women, and the Star Children. After raising the children to the age of six, the people from the sky returned. Then, all traces of the Star Children disappeared. However, in other cases, Star Children remained to live their lives as tribal elders.
Hopi Star Children Left Behind
According to Brian Burkhart, a professor of American studies at California State University:
“The stories of Star Children are quite common in native culture. There can be quite a variety of forms of that sort of thing as well. But typically, there’s a star and a human being joined together and a child is born from that union,” Burkhart says.
When the child reached age six, the tribe knew the visitors from the sky could return for them. If not, they would sometimes become tribal elders, even at a young age.
According to author Logan Hawkes, who wrote Ancient Aliens of the Americas:
“…some Star Children are left behind to become interwoven into the tribe. A lot of them later in life become elders, even at a very young age. And, that’s because they are believed to carry the ability or the knowledge to heal the Earth,” says Hawkes.

Koyaanisqatsi: A World Out of Balance
According to the Hopi legend, the Star Children are here to repair the Koyaanisqatsi, which means a world out of balance or “life of moral corruption and turmoil.”
“The Hopi believe the Earth is out of cantor. It’s not balanced any longer, and it’s the Star Children who live among the Hopi who advise even the elders on how to put the Earth back into balance again,” says Hawkes.
The Arrival of the Blue Star
One day, the Star Children will prepare people for the arrival of the Blue Star, a house in the sky, and the Kachina, a spiritual messenger. For Ancient Astronaut theorists, it’s a reference to the return of the extraterrestrials.
The Hopi name for the star Sirius is “Blue Star Kachina.”
According to a Hopi Elder named White Feather of the Bear Clan, the Blue Star is a “dwelling place in the heavens” that crashes to Earth. Afterward, the Kachina, the Saquasohuh, will remove his mask during a sacred dance in the village plaza.
Immediately, the arrival of the Kachina will mark the end of the Fourth World.
Ancient Origins notes the Kachina is “analogous to angels in the Christian religion.” Following this event, a period of war, destruction, and purification will lead to the beginning of the Fifth World. Then, the survivors will finally live in peace and harmony with Mother Nature.
The Hopi Origin Story
As you may know, the Hopi and other Pueblo peoples believe they emerged from life underground. Then, when it was safe to go back to the surface, they met Maasaw, the planet’s caretaker.
At that moment, the caretaker instructs the people to care for the Earth, a gift to humankind.
Thereafter, the tribe dispersed across the planet to find the “Center Place.” Interestingly, as the tribes migrated in different directions, they left a spiral petroglyph behind to mark where they traveled.
As they cared for the planet, they were to watch for a great sign in the sky. When the tribe saw the symbol, it would mark the Center Place. One day, they arrived in the American Southwest after seeing a bright light in the sky.
Now, awaiting the Blue Star Kachina, it seems as if the cycle will repeat, or perhaps has yet to happen in the future?

The Hopi Prophecy Rock
Vernon Masayesva, Hopi Elder, discusses the Prophecy Rock, a petroglyph near Oraibi, Arizona.
“The predominant population of the races have embraced a materialistic path,” says Masayesva. “It has no heart. It’s all science and technology.”
When the Hopi emerged from the ground and entered the Fourth World, the farmer Maasaw taught them to follow the spiritual path.
“On that Prophecy Rock, the material path ends abruptly,” says Masayesva. “The spiritual path just keeps going.”
Interestingly, the petroglyph features three circles, but one remains incomplete. The Hopi elder says the incomplete circle represents World War III, which has already begun.
“So Maasaw’s path is now being disrupted by the warfare that’s going on, and now by global warming that mankind are creating.”
Now, he says that there is still hope for a better future.
“I believe the path of science and technology can still be intertwined with the mystical path, a spiritual path, mythical path,” he says. “I think it can be intertwined as they were intertwined from the beginning when science and mythology was intertwined and they separated.”

The Sacred Nature of Water
As we reach the end of the Fourth Age, the elder says he sees hope in the form of sacred water, an indestructible living spirit.
“We’ve been doing this for thousands of years. We believe water reacts to our energy, to our emotions, to our prayers.”
Today, he believes water is the bridge to unite science and technology with a harmonious way of life if used “the right way.” Instead of letting technology control our lives, people must come together as one race to restore harmony and love.
“Now I think, through water, water is the bridge…it will bring us back together again and I see a lot of hope in that,” he says.
Starseeds in an Eternal Cycle
To receive enlightenment, humans must understand that it’s a fact that we are connected to every living thing, the cosmos, and the universe. We are all Starseeds and what we think and do affects everything.
Today, our cynical, materialistic world teaches us to mock such notions as naive or foolish. However, the wise realize the truth: what we do to the Earth, every life form, and each other matters.
Interestingly, Masayesva says that the recent advances in understanding the quantum world are “what Hopi always taught. We are part of the hydraulic cycle. We are intertwined with nature.”
Although Western science holds that we’re separated from nature, from water, Masayesva says we are “a very important part of that cycle.”
When we die, we go to the sixth direction, the cosmos sea, home of the Cloud People. Perhaps, another dimension?
After a period of rest, we return to the sea and the neverending cloud cycle.
