Where did you come out from my Children?
From yonder, where the Whirling Mountain stands.
Navajo Shooting Chant

The Navajos are the most populous of all surviving Indian nations in the USA. They comprise about 100,000 individuals, and inhabit New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. The Navajo Indians are close of kin to the Apaches and were, as these, deeply influenced by the more civilized, agrarian Pueblo Indians. Under this influence, the Navajos adopted a sedentary existence, based on agriculture and, later, in the herding of goats, sheep and cattle.

The Pueblo Indians instructed the Navajos and the Apaches not only in agriculture, but also in the arts, crafts and religion. Navajo pottery and their famous rugs derive their design from that of the Pueblos. So do their silver smithing and, above all, their remarkable sand paintings, which we will be discussing in depth.

In the present chapter we analyze, to a certain detail, one of the main myths of the Navajo Indians, that of the Twins. We show its unequivocal connection with certain myths of the Old World, particularly those of India and Indonesia. Moreover, we interpret this myth in detail, showing that it is indeed an allegorical exposition of the myth of Paradise and its secret whereabouts. This Paradise is no other thing than Eden or Atlantis, the original homeland of Mankind and Civilization, as will become clear from the present discussion.

We are of the opinion after having researched the matter for quite along time now that the real reason behind the theory that holds the autochthonism of the Amerinds was, and perhaps still is, part of a concerted effort to deny them their humanity and the divine origin that the whites claim for themselves. With this the Conquistadores and the Bandeirantes as well as their counterparts elsewhere were justified in plundering the land and the possessions of the natives, as they did, and in enslaving them.

So, while the white missionaries thumped the Bible, attempting to convert the Amerinds forcefully, with the menace of all too real bonfires, they opened the way for the soldier and the colonists who would rob the natives of everything, inclusive their very humanity. Of course, this missionary and civilizatory influence would not be needed if the natives partook of the very same Tradition, the Primordial Religion and culture that came to us from Paradise, brought by the angels themselves, in the dawn of times. So, the modern anthropologists who cling to this view are but the legitimate heirs of this ancient tradition, which they defend irrationally, despite all sorts of compelling contrary evidence.

The Religion of the Navajos
The Navajo religious system is intricate. Like most Amerindian nations, they claim to have come from a subterranean world through caves or vents that connect with this upper world. Theirs is a Mystery Religion based on Drug Cults (Peyotism), on shamanism, and on amuletic songs, dances, design and rituals.

But the idea of a subterranean Creation one in which Mankind somehow originated underground and later ascended to this earth in some manner is peculiar not only to the Navajos, but to most Indian nations of the three Americas. As a matter of fact, this conception of a subterranean Paradise whence Mankind sprung into the present era coming from a former one was also widespread in the Ancient World as well. For instance, Civilizing Heroes such as Osiris, Serapis, Mithras and several others originally rose from a cave or a subterranean abode, more or less in the way that Christ too rose from among the dead.

This cave or tomb is the Primordial Cave, the Cave of Archetypes of which Plato tells us in his dialogues. It is the Pacari-tambu of the Incas, and the Cave of Illusion so masterfully described in the Ramayana. In fact, this cave is no other than the sunken, submarine realm of Atlantis-Eden. Again, the Polynesians also claim to have come originally from a sunken island or continent which they called by names such as Hawaiki (or Javaiki), which mean something like "Sunken Grove", that is, the same as the sunken Garden of Eden. And, as we argue elsewhere, the Polynesian Paradise, just as all others indeed lay in the submerged portion of primordial Indonesia.

The Dual Creations
Throughout the whole world, traditions tell of two basic types of Creation Myths. In one, the Ancestors fall down from Heaven above, and civilize the semi-bestial humans, with whom they breed the new humanity. In the other, as with the Amerinds, the Ancestors come from the Netherworld, and effect what amounts to a second Creation which is in all respects the dual of the former one.

This dual Creation and, indeed, Dualism in general, derives from Hinduism and seems to form the base and essence of the Urreligion ("Primordial Religion") postulated by certain anthropologists of note. We encounter this Dual Creation even in the Book of Genesis. There, the first Creation attributed to Elohim is told in chapter 1 of that book, whereas the second one, attributed to Jahveh, is narrated in chapter 2, as the reader can verify for himself.

The language in both passages is (purposefully) obscure, but is unmistakably dual. The god of Gen.1, Elohim is clearly Celestial. But the one of Gen.2, Jahveh, starts his Creation from below, as "the mist that came up from under the earth". In other words, the spirit ("mist") of God ascends from below, together with the subterranean waters and, certainly, followed by his hosts (or people), much in the manner of the Indians.

The Earth-Diver
In several Cosmogonies, we have the so called "Earth-Diver" fetching the earth from under the seas, in contrast to the Fallen Sun that drops from the skies down to earth, as an avatar of the Celestial God.

The archetype of the Earth Diver is Vishnu, in his Boar avatar (Varaha). The one of the Fallen Sun is, again, derived from a Hindu archetype; that of Vishvasvat, the Sun, and his many aliases. Both of these Cosmogonic motifs date from Vedic times in India, and there can be no question of Hindu precedence.
As we said above, the Navajos learnt their Mystery Religion from Pueblo Indians such as the Zuņi of New Mexico. The Zuņi in turn relate to the Aztecs and the Mayas of Mexico, whose advanced civilization is well-known. This diffusion of civilization can be traced further back to the Incas of Peru and, across the Pacific Ocean, all the way to Indonesia and to India.

The Pueblos and the Architecture of Įatal Huyuk
It is sufficient to compare the unique pueblo constructions of the Pueblo Indians with those of Įatal Huyuk, in Anatolia, or those of Harappa and Mohenjo-daro, to conclude that they were undoubtedly built (or designed) by the one and same people (see Fig.1 below). The pueblos are, like their Old World counterparts, a sort of human "beehive" in which the individual apartments form "cells" destitute of doors and windows.

The only access is through the roof, by means of a manhole and ladder. In case of attack, the ladders could be withdrawn, and the "city" became an impregnable fortress. Įatal Huyuk has been dated at 9,000 years ago, and is one of the oldest known cities. Burial methods, the advanced agriculture, bull-worship and the cult of the Great Mother, and several other similarities further testify to an ancient connection among these distant sites.

Indeed, the sun-dried mud bricks fired when firewood was available lead us to think of Adam, made of the same stuff. Zuņi mythology depicts their ancestors actually emerging from the underground mud in Paradise and immigrating to their present location.

Atlantis, Eden and the Seven Golden Cities of Cibola
The Pueblos were early associated by the Spaniards with the Seven Golden Cities of Cibola and with the legend of the Eldorado. And these are, as we argue elsewhere, the same as the Seven Islands of the Blest, which are no other than the sunken Eden of the Judeo-Christians. The name of the Golden Cities of Cibola very obviously came from the Dravida civ-pola, meaning "golden city" or, yet, "city of the reds". It is interesting to note that "Reds" or "Golden" are usual epithets of the Atlanteans. Adam too was a "Red", that is, a Chamite, as his name (means "red") unequivocally indicates.

Moreover, the number seven attached to the cities of Cibola is also the one of the Isles of the Blest and similar sunken realms of the ancients. In fact, the number alludes to the seven great islands of Indonesia: Java, Sumatra, Borneo, Celebes, Philippines, New Guinea and the Malay Peninsula, which the ancients counted as an island.

We recall that the fundamental rule of the science of symbolism is that a symbol or a convention cannot be invoked to explain the origin of another symbol, for this just transfers the problem. So, the sacredness of the number seven the holiest number of the Hindus can only derive from their seven Dvipas or Paradises, that is, from precisely the above islands. Can you think of another sacred seven that is not purely conventional in origin?

The Spaniards mistook the Americas which they later called West Indies for the East Indies, which they knew to be the site of Paradise and, hence, of the fabled Seven Golden Cities of Cibola. Cibola, "the Golden City", is just one of the many names of Lemurian Atlantis. The name of "Seven Golden Cities" or "Seven Golden Islands" was applied by the ancients to the Indonesian islands, and to no other place. This name is indeed a translation of the Sanskrit Suvarna-dvipa, which gave the Greek Chryse Chersonesos and the Latin Aurea Chersonesus, all meaning the same thing as "Golden City" or "Golden Island".

The Twins and the Great Mother
The Navajos trace descent through the mother, and their families centers around the grandmother. This is another evidence of their cult of the Great Mother, which is a feature of Dravidian Hinduism. The Navajo rites, chants and dances are based entirely on the characters, incidents and places of their mythology and ritual designs. The dancers wear masks and dresses according to exacting standards, and impersonate the gods and heroes (Kachina) of their mythology.

Foremost among these ancestral heroes of the Navajos are the Twins, the sons of Sun and Earth-Mother. These Twins are also called "Little War-Gods", a name which closely evokes that of the Hindu Ashvin Twins and, more exactly, the two brothers Skanda and Ganesha, respectively the generalissimos of the gods and of the devils in Hindu mythology.

The Twins free the earth from all sorts of monsters, creating order out of the prevalent chaos.

The Navajo Twins closely correspond to the ones of the Pueblo Indians and those of the Mayas and even the ones of the Indians of South America. Indeed, the Navajo Twins are the counterparts of those of the Old World, pairs like Castor and Pollux, Atlas and Gadeiros, as well as the Ashvin Twins of Vedic India. In all cases the function of these Twins was ridding the world of monsters and pests, including diseases and vermin. This is true on both sides of the world. Hence, it is naive to think that such perfect correspondences can be the result of chancy coincidences.
A close comparison of these and other mythological personages discloses the fact that Amerindian religion is very much the same all over the three Americas, particularly insofar as their Cosmogony is implied. However, as is so often the case with the oppressed races, the Indians disguise their true religion under a heavy veil of allegories and symbolisms that have to be deciphered before the underlying unity and purpose become evident. Even in this regards, the religion of the Amerindians closely parallels the Mystery Religions of the Old World, whose secret contents was never divulged to the profanes, particularly if these belong to the despicable white races.

Djos y Ley, the Archetypal Twins
Frequently, the Navajo own gods are synchretized to the alien deities and saints, despite the fact that they are indeed their duals. For instance, the Pueblo Indians disguised their Twins, during Spanish dominion, under the characters of Djos and Ley. These two are characters akin to the Trickster, and figure in vulgar tales tending to the fescenine.

In fact, their names are corruptions of the Spanish Dios and Rey ("God" and "King") and embody the two types of divine authority that we encounter the world over. These two types correspond to the powers the Hindu impersonated in Mitra and Varuna, as so amply discussed by Prof. G. Dumézil. Mitra ("twin") is the Solar Twin, and personifies Royalty (Ley), much as Varuna is the Lunar Twin who corresponds to Magic and Religion (Djos).

The Twins personify, everywhere, the two races of Man, from which all humans arose. The junior (or lesser) twin is often likened to a woman, and is dominated by his elder twin. Sometimes they are made into a Male and a Female and their role is switched as the eras alternate. The Twins are often likened to the Sun (or Sky) and the Earth (or Hell), which are esteemed to be their parents.

With the Barasana Indians of the Brazilian Amazon jungle, the Twins are substituted by the Primordial Couple. These two consist of Jurupari and Romi Kumu. Romi Kumu somehow lost his/her phallus, and became the Great Mother, just as Jurupari, the Great Father, also lost his own, in a later occasion. But in many other South American nations, the male (or androgynous) character of the Twins is preserved, with one of them dominant, and the other one dominated and effeminate.

These two Primordial Castrates closely evoke the ones of Greek mythology (Ouranos and Kronos), themselves copied from Brahma and Shiva, their Hindu archetypes. When one pauses to reflect, it is difficult not to realize their common origin somewhere. And when one thinks even harder, it is easy to see that this origin can only have been in the Indies, whence we all came from, in the dawn of times.

The Twins as Fire and Water
More exactly, the Navajo Twins are, respectively, like their Hindu counterparts, the children of the Sun and Water by the Earth Mother. Again this dualism is of Hindu origin, and the Sun is, indeed, Agni (the Fiery Principle), whereas the Water corresponds to Indra (the Watery Principle).

Vedic mythology is extremely difficult to penetrate. But it is possible to show that Mitra ("twin") is really an epithet of Indra (ind = "water"), whereas Varuna is really the Celestial (or Sun) god fallen down into the Ocean. When this reversal of roles happened, Varuna was degraded and descended to the bottom of the seas, trading role with his Twin (Mitra), that ascended to Heaven.

The Navajos and the Apache express their religion in the ritual dances and chants of the whole community. These ceremonies are intended to reestablish Cosmic Order and, hence, bring back health to the sick; rains to the crops; game to the hunters, etc.. They also drive away the evil spirits that disturb Cosmic Harmony, and invite in the good ones that foster it.

All their arts are combined in the rituals: the elaborate poetry of the chants; the mythical geography; the beautiful masks and feather head-dresses; the deep symbolism of the intricate sand paintings and, finally, the spectacular dancing of the characters who wear the godly regalia.

Both the Apache and the Navajos call the Twins by names such as "Killer-of-Enemy Gods" and "Child-of-the-Waters". These names are shared by the other Athabascan-speaking peoples. The enemy gods are the monsters that inhabited primordial earth, and which rendered it unfit for human occupation before they were exterminated by the Twins.

Most such monsters are cannibals like Big Owl and Kicker-off-the-rocks. Child-of-the-Waters is the junior twin; the helper of his elder bother. His name is a direct translation of that of the Hindu Apam-Napat, himself an alias of Skanda, the Hindu War-god. These two should be compared to the Twin War Gods of the Pueblo Indians, as commented above.

The Exploits of the Twins
Navajo mythology hinges on the exploits of the Twins in their quest of the mythical Center of Origin, the Paradise they identify with the Whirling Mountain at the Center of the World. In certain versions, this Paradise was reached by a man who went down the Colorado River inside a hollow log. This myth can be understood in the light of similar South American Indian myths.

The hollow log is really a giant serpent (Anaconda) which is a sort of submarine, inside which they came out from the underwater primordial abode. In other words, the hollow log is an alias of the Ark, which is often likened to a giant serpent both in the New and the Old Worlds.

South American Indian mythology is presently far more complete than that of the North American Indians, for down here many tribes still survive in their pristine state, and have not yet been acculturated by the missionaries and other white influences. But an in depth study of south American mythology clearly shows a fundamental identity with that of their northern brothers, particularly insofar as the myths of origin are concerned.

The Death and Resurrection of Wiyot
The Pueblo Indians and the Luiseņos turned migrants in imitation of the Twins. They thus attempted to reach the Center of the Earth where their god, Wiyot, had hidden himself after he died. Wiyot was the first of all men to die, and his death taught his people the example. In fact, Wiyot later resurrected as the New Moon, and became immortal.

The example of Wiyot is literally copied from the Hindu one of Yama ("twin"). Yama is an alias of Varuna as the lesser of the two Twins. Indeed, the stories of both Wiyot and Yama anticipate that of Christ, who died and resurrected in order to teach his worshippers that it can be done in practice. The death and resurrection of Wiyot is an instance of those of the so-called Vegetation Gods of the Old World. To this famous confrary also belong gods and heroes such as Tammuz, Attis, Adonis, Agdistis, King Arthur, Hercules, and, of course, Jesus Christ, Osiris and Dionysos.

What the story of Wiyot is indeed telling is that the elder, the Solar Twin, dies and resurrects as the lesser one, the Lunar Twin. In other words, what we have here is the alternance of the eras and that of the ruling and ruled races with the passage of time.

Even Plato seemed to believe in this concept, as he held that we are sequentially born as males and females (i.e. Solar and Lunar) in successive metempsychoses. Apparently, victims and oppressors also change places. As one philosophical Indian once said, "when we were on top, we stepped on the necks of the whites. Now they re on top, and step on ours."

The Primordial Migration
The migrations of the Luiseņos, the Apaches and the Pueblos recall the identical ones of the Tupi-Guarani Indians of Brazil. Even before the Portuguese arrived here, they knew their world was doomed. So, they started migrating to the coast, awaiting for the Saviour that would lead them safely across the Ocean, just as Moses, Christ, and other such Tirthankaras ("Ford-makers" or, rather, "Saviours") had done in Primordial times.

This mass migration precipitated the downfall of the once mighty Tupi-Guarani nation. Out of their own bases, these Indians became an easy prey for the Portuguese invaders, who cornered them against the seas, and killed them off through starvation and purposefully spread diseases such as smallpox and syphilis. More or less as happened in North America, except that in a far larger scale, for the genocide there was conducted by the government itself.

The pungent story of the Tupi-Guarani migrations in quest of their Paradise, Yvymaraney (or "evil-less land"), is one of the most touching dramas of the Amerindian saga in the three Americas. We have told this sad story elsewhere, and will not return to it here. Suffice it to say that the pilgrimages in quest of Paradise and the Holy Land are perhaps the most prevalent of religious rituals in the world.

Pilgrimages are done by the Hindus and the Arabs, as well as by the Jews and the Christians alike.

Pilgrimages are a sort of ritual return to Paradise. Phony heroes seek to return to phony, purely spiritual Paradises, whereas true Heroes like Alexander, Ulysses, Osiris, Dionysos and Gilgamaseh seek for the true site of the Terrestrial Paradise. And this they invariably do, just as their New World counterparts, by crossing into the Indies, as we can read in the ancient sagas.
The first Europeans in America emphasized the differences and the "savagery" of the Amerinds as an excuse to force them into submission and slavery, and in order to be granted royal and papal permission to steal their land and property and to disorganize their nations and their religion. Thus deprived of their values, the acculturated Indians became an easy prey of the far more bestial Conquistadores and Bandeirantes who inevitably follow the missionaries everywhere they show up among the primitives.

You know how it is: send the missionaries first. If they fail in the task of destroying the social structures of the natives and in "converting" them a sure sign of their pact with the Devil send in the soldiers to butt in, and to punish the savages, and to force them into complying. Once their culture and their religion and social structure are disrupted, send in the colonists to take away their land, their property and even their very humanity, through enslavement and sheer genocide. Look into History, and you will see that this sad reality is the rule rather than the exception everywhere in this world of ours.

The Meaning of Drug Cults
Like the Luiseņos and the Mescalero Apaches, the Pueblos and the Navajos often adhere to Drug Cults. These are based on hallucinogens such as the sacred mushroom, the peyote and the mescal. Indeed, most Indians use one type or another of drug-induced ecstasy, in order to enhance their mystical union with God.

Such was also the original purpose of the Holy Communion of the Christians, where wine (a hallucinogen) substitutes for other drugs. All such rituals ultimately derive from the Soma rituals of the Hindus, as many specialists have recognized. Soma was prepared from many plants such as hemp, mushrooms, asclepias, etc., as well as from animal poisons obtained from toads and snakes.

Drug cults were generalized in the whole ancient world as well, as archaeological research is unequivocally uncovering. Even the Egyptians were apparently addicted to such rituals. A recent study of several Egyptian mummies by the meticulous Germans unmistakenly revealed that the Egyptian pharaohs routinely used drugs such as hemp, opium, tobacco and coca.

Now, hemp is an Indian plant, whereas tobacco and coca are of South American origin, and opium was usually produced in the Near East. So, what this remarkable research unequivocally discloses is the existence of an ancient international naval trade in drugs (and other goods as well) throughout the world, and encompassing principally the Indies and the Americas in its routes.

Another often-used hallucinogenic drug is datura or jimson. This is also called loco-weed or thorn-apple (Datura stramonium). The datura is common to both the Old and the New World, and is also widely used in India for the same ritual purposes as in the Americas. Jimsonweed is particularly popular among the Chungichmich of Southern California, and is much used in initiatic rituals involving nagualism and shamanism.

Peyotism is based on the peyote (or mescal) cactus (Lophophora Williamsii), native to Mexico. In the US, Peyote is eaten in a communal meal that closely resembles the Holy Communion of the Christians, which it apparently parallels. Indeed, modern Peyote religion actually claims that Christ instituted the "White Communion" to Whites and the Peyote (or "Red") Communion to the Reds. Interestingly enough, the ancient Hindus also spoke of two similar types of Soma Communion, one "red" (or "golden" or "Solar"), and the other "white" (or "silvery" or "Lunar").

Peyotism has been forbidden or, at least, persecuted, since early times in the Americas. In 1620, the Inquisidor General of New Spain forbid the use of peyote by all Christians, a fact that meant that those caught in the practice were not Christians and, hence, liable to prosecution and burning-at-stake for heresy or witchcraft or both.

As recently as the late 1960s, Peyotism was still outlawed in several regions of the Unitedstates of America.
The name of the peyote derives from the Nahuatl peyotl meaning "divine messenger", which is more or less synonymous with "Angel (or Envoy) of the Lord". In other words, Peyotl is the "Christ", the Messias (or Emissary) sent down to the Indians as the Celestial Messenger, the bearer of the Good News of the Gospels. More exactly, Peyotl is the Third Coming of the Saviour so ardently expected by the Gnostics and the Mystics everywhere. When he comes, shortly, he shall bring the Celestial Bread to all humans, the white one to the Whites, and the red one to the Reds, in fair, equal shares to all of us humans.1

The Great Mother, Venus and Nagualism
In Navajo mythology, the Great Mother is called Changing Woman. Changing Woman represents the Earth. And her name refers to the idea that our planet periodically sloughs off its old skin (the crust) like a serpent, being reborn as fresh and virginal as a young bride. This motif is ritually enacted in Navajo dances and chants of an initiatic character.

This periodic renewal of the world is connected not only with the daily or the yearly ones, but with the eras of humanity dictated by the Precession of the Equinoxes. In other words, Changing Woman is the same as the Nagis ("Serpent Women") of the Hindus, and her myriad counterparts such as Mélusine, Kokilan, Ganga, the Queen of Sheba, Echidna, etc. who, all, symbolize the renewed earth.

More exactly, Changing Woman is Venus, reborn afresh from the froth and blood of the castrated phallus of Ouranos thrown down into the Ocean s waters by Kronos. Indeed, Venus is the alias or replica of the Hindu goddess Lakshmi (also called Shri). Shri was born, exactly like Aphrodite-Venus, from the froth engendered at the occasion of the Churning of the Ocean of Milk, in consequence of the dispute between the gods an the devils (devas and asuras) for possession of the Elixir of Life, the Soma.

The Primordial Castration and the Universal Twins
Again, this churning is a clever allegory of the destruction of Paradise by the giant volcanism that changed Mt. Atlas from a volcanic peak into a giant submarine caldera, as we explain next. This event is also allegorized, again in beautiful images, the Primordial Castration of the Holy Mountain of Paradise and its fall into the Ocean, and the rebirth of the renewed Paradise of the subsequent era.

Another similar allegory is the one we mentioned further above, concerning the myth of the Fallen Sun, who is also the Primordial Castrate. The former Sun (male) falls down into the seas, and is reborn as the New Moon (female) that is the alias of Venus or, yet, of the renewed Earth and the rejuvenated Great Mother that is her daughter, the Virgin. Interestingly enough, the birth of the Twins is also attended by foam which, as we will see below, has a deep esoteric significance.

According to the Male Shooting Chant of the Navajos, the Twins were born from Changing Woman, and were fathered, sequentially, by Dripping Water and Sun. Most mythical Twins are born likewise, fathered by two different fathers. A well-known case is that of Hercules and Iphicles, successively fathered by Zeus and Amphitrion.

Likewise, Cain and Abel were also born of Eve, fathered, respectively, by both God and Adam (Gen. 4:1-2). Indeed, even Jesus Christ and his Twin (Thomas Didymus) may have been bred this way. As usual, this double impregnation scheme is of Hindu origin, and is instanced, f. i., in the miraculous conception of Krishna and Balarama and that of the Ashvin Twins. Several apocryphal gospels tell, often in allegoric but unequivocal terms, of the dual paternity of Christ and his many-named Twin.

The two fathers are either Joseph and the Angel, the Holy Ghost and the Father or even Joseph and a mysterious Roman legionary called Panthera.

The Regaining of Youth
In one Navajo sacred dance, Changing Woman, old, decrepit and feeble, is led through the four different stations of a ritual sand paintings and regains her youth, finally coming out as fresh and as virginal as the Earth in springtime. Apparently, she is reborn as a male, the Junior Twin or as his twin sister, the Virgin. Junior is far more than just a companion and mate to the Elder Twin. He/she also seems to be his lover as well. This is evidenced, for instance, when Changing Woman completes the change, and sings:

Changing Woman s child I have become,
With him I go, being restored to youth,
According to beauty I walk.
All is in accord again,
All is in accord again,
All is in accord again
All is in accord again.
