There is an ancient Inca prophesy which states that ”When the Eagle of the North flies with the Condor of the South, The Spirit of the Land will Reawaken.” The Eagle refers to the Native people of North America, and the Condor to the Native people of South America. This prophecy is and has been known by many Native Nations in many different forms. There have been large meetings during the last 15 to 20 years of representatives from the Indian Nations of the Americas. And there have been very many smaller meetings of group and individuals. The purpose of these meetings is to build mutual beneficial relationships. This is all part of a revitalization of Native cultures and values that results in improvement to the wellbeing and prosperity of Native People. Inter-tribal trade is rooted in Native tradition and Native values of sustainability and respect for the environment. These values are in stark contrast to the irresponsible actions of multinational corporation supported by NAFTA and other free trade agreements.
The fulfilling of this prophecy coincides with the end of the Mayan long count calendar. December 21st, 2012 is the final day of a 5,125 year period in human history. Many people believe it will be the beginning of a new age, a restoration of the balance between feminine and masculine, a reawakening to the interdependence of life.
