Tau My relatives On Friday July 18 2008 Pittsburgh TV station WTAE channel 4 aired a
piece which included comments by Caney Circle beike Miguel Sobaoko
Koromo Sague concerning the significance of Pittsburgh's river
confluence in the prophecy of the Mayan Calendar Shift of Ages.
As some of you already know I have been studying the Mayan Calendar
since I was a teen-ager and in the year 2000 I was given a sacred
headband by elder Don Apolinario, Quiche Maya spiritual leader from
Guatemala to read and maintain the day count of the Mayan Calendar.
Before and and since then I have made several trips to the Maya
homeland in the Yucatan Penninsula and Guatemala to continue my
learning of this ancient tradition which is related through trade to
the tradition of our Taino ancestors.
Many of us here is the Pittsburg area perceive the convergence of
the two surface rivers, the Allegheny and the Monongahela which flow
together to form the Ohio, and the subterranian presence of the
glacial aquifer we call the "underground fourth river" to be a
junction of four sacred waters that, among other things, reflect
the four directions. We also view the physical connection that these
waters create between our region of western Pennsylvania and the
Gulf of Mexico destination of the Mississippi river where these
waters eventually end up to establish a sacred link of water between
this land here and the land of the Maya prophecy.
We are a group of Native and non-Native people here who have
committed ourselves to fulfilling the promise of brethrenhood
between these two regions and the wider, more global perspective of
reconciliation that this inter-regional relationship implies. Our
perception was confirmed by Grandfather Don Alejandro Perez Oxlaj
back in December when he visited our Western Pennsylvania region and
shared with us his blessing of our four rivers and his personal
perspective on the very real significance of Pittsburgh in the Mayan
Calendar prophecy. He specifically confirmed that these waters hold
deep and sacred meaning within the Mayan prophecy.
We here in Western Pennsylvania have associated the meandering route
of the three surface rivers to the ondulation of the body of the
sacred feathered serpent Kukulkan (Quetzalcoatl) of MesoAmerican
tradition. We have established a sacred relationship between the
Central American rattlesnake which inspired the Kukulkan tradition
and the North American rattlesnake so common in the surroundings of
the Allegheny river, north of Pittsburgh. We perceive the flow of
these rivers to reflect the flow of the Milky Way Galaxy as it is
understood by the Maya wise elders, who equate it to the sacred
Heavenly WORLD TREE, the sacred ceiba. and who also equate it to the
sacred path of truth and wisdom that they call the "Sac Be" the
