The Idle No More Movement and other related Global Movements, whether understood by all, as yet, are deeply rooted in the long held prayers and prophecies of Indigenous Elders and Visionaries. These Prophecies, including the 8th Council Fire, the Hopi’s, the Mayan’s Black Elk, Sweet Medicine, Handsome Lake, Deganiwida, Quetzalcoatl, Viracocha, Chilam Balam, the Reunion of the Condor and the Eagle, The Slaying and the Return of the White Buffalo and others foretold that after a long, bitter spiritual wintertime that a new spiritual springtime would arise and that Indigenous Peoples and other allies of the Human Family would arise, at first slowly and then with great spiritual strength and create a new global civilization. This new global civilization will be founded in social, environmental, economic justice and cultural and spiritual harmony and respect.
These prophecies are highlighted in the new film, Shift of the Ages, a dramatic documentary film that reveals the story of the Mayan culture and its sophisticated prophecies of time, as told for the first time by the Grand Elder of the Mayan people, Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj. Commissioned on behalf of the Maya nation, the Shift of the Ages is the first official discourse to the world from the Mayan Council of Elders, intended to dispel misconceptions and replace them with the positive story long foretold in many Indigenous Prophecies about the emergence of the “5th Sun and the unfolding of a new global civilization based justice, harmony for all members of the Human Family! Known as “Wandering Wolf,” Tata Alejandro is the elected Grand Elder of the living Maya and mystical Aj Q’ji, or timekeeper of tradition.
