Message to the North American Indian Peoples and those of Meso-America
In my Cantos, I have spoken of times I have come among you. Perhaps you retain today the exact signs of my return which I gave you when I last left. But if you do not, still I pray my words will have the knowing we have always shared between us.
Those that have kept you in captivity know little of the wonder you possessed and which you hid to keep it safe. That I had a part in this is my joy in remembrance.
Though always you returned to old ways, still I knew in your hearts you kept mine.
In interpreting the meaning of the Great Serpent Mound, I had hoped to share with your captors considerations that went beyond mindset. That might allow them to see you like they were in so many ways they now despise.
When I predicted the serpent in the sun and it so recently appeared I hoped you were paying
Now I tell you to watch the sky directly above tomorrow morning at 1:00 A.M. And to follow its progress as it moves south.
Now I will share knowing.
I went among a clan of the Navajo Nation. My wife and I had brought donations from our friends. Navajo women went through them like locusts and then began to sell Mexican trinkets to her for Navajo-made.
Meanwhile the young Navajo men of the clan and the children walked together among the sparcity of desert and they told me of their women's fraud while I assured them it did not matter. In the process I shared the knowing and they began to divulge what no one of your people will tell any of their captors. Part of it was what was kept for me beneath the lodge of the Hopi elders.
Then, in the days that followed, I saw an auntie take away the hogan of a young couple with new baby and I spoke with representatives of the elders about digging water wells you so badly need.
The result spoke some of the harm this captivity has brought.
Take what you have saved so faithfully for me. Build libraries, found your own schools, and dig
wells and build anything to improve your circumstance.
In so doing free yourself from this captivity, more self-imposed than not.
Do not let what is coming see you end this way.
