The Age of the Rainbow Warrior Has Come.
According to multiple Native American prophecies, a time will occur on Earth when there will rise up a Tribe called Warriors of the Rainbow. They will come when the Earth is facing grave problems, and nature will begin to die off. Their goal is peace, harmony and health for all people and the Earth, together as One.
The Hopi say:
“When the earth is dying there shall arise a new tribe of all colours and all creeds. This tribe shall be called The Warriors of the Rainbow and it will put its faith in actions not words.”
A Cree story goes like this:
Last century an old wise woman of the Cree Indian nation, named “Eyes of Fire”, had a vision of the future. She prophesied that one day … there would come a time, when the earth being ravaged and polluted, the forests being destroyed, the birds would fall from the air, the waters would be blackened, the fish being poisoned in the streams, and the trees would no longer be, mankind as we would know it would all but cease to exist. There would come a time when the “keepers of the legend, stories, culture rituals, and myths, and all the Ancient Tribal Customs” would be needed to restore us to health, making the earth green again. They would be mankind’s key to survival, they were the “Warriors of the Rainbow”. There would come a day of awakening when all the peoples of all the tribes would form a New World of Justice, Peace, Freedom and recognition of the Great Spirit.
The “Warriors of the Rainbow” would spread these messages and teach all peoples of the Earth or “Elohi”. They would teach them how to live the “Way of the Great Spirit”. They would tell them of how the world today has turned away from the Great Spirit and that is why our Earth is “Sick”.
The “Warriors of the Rainbow” would show the peoples that this “Ancient Being” (the Great Spirit), is full of love and understanding, and teach them how to make the “Earth or Elohi” beautiful again. These Warriors would give the people principles or rules to follow to make their path light with the world. These principles would be those of the Ancient Tribes. The Warriors of the Rainbow would teach the people of the ancient practices of Unity, Love and Understanding. They would teach of Harmony among people in all four corners of the Earth.
Like the Ancient Tribes, they would teach the peoples how to pray to the Great Spirit with love that flows like the beautiful mountain stream, and flows along the path to the ocean of life. Once again, they would be able to feel joy in solitude and in councils. They would be free of petty jealousies and love all mankind as their brothers, regardless of color, race or religion. They would feel happiness enter their hearts, and become as one with the entire human race. Their hearts would be pure and radiate warmth, understanding and respect for all mankind, Nature and the Great Spirit.
They would once again fill their minds, hearts, souls, and deeds with the purest of thoughts. They would seek the beauty of the Master of Life – the Great Spirit! They would find strength and beauty in prayer and the solitude of life.
Their children would once again be able to run free and enjoy the treasures of Nature and Mother Earth. Free from the fears of toxins and destruction [and] greed. The rivers would again run clear, the forests be abundant and beautiful, the animals and birds would be replenished. The powers of the plants and animals would again be respected and conservation of all that is beautiful would become a way of life.
The poor, sick and needy would be cared for by their brothers and sisters of the Earth. These practices would again become a part of their daily lives.
The leaders of the people would be chosen in the old way – not by their political party, or who could speak the loudest, boast the most, or by name calling or mud slinging, but by those whose actions spoke the loudest. Those who demonstrated their love, wisdom and courage and those who showed that they could and did work for the good of all, would be chosen as the leaders or Chiefs. They would be chosen by their “quality” and not the amount of money they had obtained. Like the thoughtful and devoted “Ancient Chiefs”, they would understand the people with love, and see that their young were educated with the love and wisdom of their surroundings. They would show them that miracles can be accomplished to heal this world of its ills, and restore it to health and beauty.
The tasks of these “Warriors of the Rainbow” are many and great. There will be terrifying mountains of ignorance to conquer and they shall find prejudice and hatred. They must be dedicated, unwavering in their strength, and strong of heart. They will find willing hearts and minds that will follow them on this road of returning “Mother Earth” to beauty and plenty – once more.
The day will come, it is not far away.
The day that we shall see how we owe our very existence to the people of all tribes that have maintained their culture and heritage. Those that have kept the rituals, stories, legends and myths alive. It will be with this knowledge, the knowledge that they have preserved, that we shall once again return to “harmony” with Nature, Mother Earth and mankind. It will be with this knowledge that we shall find our “Key to our Survival”.

Are you a Rainbow Warrior?
We live in a wonderful time, where so much is happening to change the old status-quo of greed, harming the environment to make a profit, and living out of balance with nature and our Spiritual essence. Regardless of your religion or beliefs, there is an underlying fact for all of us: We’re in this together.
It is impossible to live a happy, healthy life of abundance and purpose without living in alignment with what is best for you and everyone else. And I believe that when I choose what feels most joyful and peaceful, it MUST be what is best for everyone else as well. The Universal law of reciprocity demands that.

“Warrior of the Rainbow”
Indigenous People World-Wide Have The Same Rainbow Story
The Indalo symbol found in prehistoric caves in Spain depicts a figure with arms outstretched and an arc or rainbow over its head. Healers in the area have taught for hundreds of years that the symbol has positive and protective energy, and is the sign of the “star people.” It is a symbol of spiritual power and the grace of Creator Source.
Here in the Hawaiian Islands where I live, we have ancient petroglyphs of Anuenue Wahine (Rainbow Woman) and Anuenue Kane (Rainbow Man). Both gendered glyphs seem to carry the same level of authority, leadership and respect.
I took the accompanying photo of an Anuenue Kane or Rainbow Man/Warrior petroglyph in Iao Valley State Park near my home in Maui. I regularly go here to meditate and pray for guidance as a Warrior of the Rainbow and teacher of peace.
Rainbow Warriors are Guided by Love
Love for each other, love for nature, and a willingness to share of yourself openly are signs of a Rainbow Warrior.
Even though we traditionally think of Warriors as men, that is the old way of war – duality, greed, violence. Rainbow Warriors (aka Courageous Ones) are non-negotiable about their focus of Peace and Love. The “war” is within, a choice to rise above fear and greed to embrace the Truth. It is truly a skillful Warrior who lays down resentment or bitterness toward someone and chooses to see the Light within them, even if they have done hurtful things.
Because of these values, the Warriors of the Rainbow will have many women leaders. Even in Hawaiian culture, where women and men had very distinct and separate roles in society, the markings of the Rainbow Warrior are found in both male and female form.
