HOPI KNOWLEDGE. Note: I wrote this series of articles in 2010 and since they were re-shared recently, I’m publishing here a revised, corrected and updated version. I learned more about the relation the Hopi have with Sasquatch during my last three-month stay there two years ago, when I was invited to talk about Sasquatch in a couple of Hopi groups, as described in a previous POST. They associate Sasquatch with Maassaw the Earth Keeper, a giant whom they first called Woqokuktaka: ”The Man Who Leaves Big Footprints”. These articles address several topics from what I learned with the Hopi.
I had the honor to meet in his home Elder Thomas Banyacya (photo above at the UN and first photo with the Dalai Lama), as well as Grandfather David Monongye when he was aged 117 (who is shaking the hand of the Dalai Lama on the photo). I also visited Grandfather Martin Gashweseoma in his home, seen in the center on the second photo with the Dalai Lama. I didn’t find a photo of White Bear or other Hopi Elders I met.
