The Iroquois Deganawidah: The Two Serpents

By Andrew Dwight Harris

(Maitreya's comments in  red)

Deganawidah, The Great Peacemaker, is a prophet among the tribes of the Iroquois of long ago.  Below is the opening paragraph of the prophecy, The Two Serpents, as told by Scott Peterson from Native American Prophecies:

When Deganawidah was leaving the Indians in the Bay of Quinte in Ontario, he told the Indian people that they would face a time of great suffering.  They would distrust their leaders and the principles of peace of the League, and a great white serpent was to come upon the Iroquois, and that for a time it would intermingle with the Indian serpent as a friend.  This serpent would in time become so powerful that it would attempt to destroy the Indian, and the serpent is described as choking the life's blood out of the Indian people.

The rest of the prophecy of The Two Serpents becomes very symbolic and seems to have end-times meanings:

Deganawidah told the Indians that they would be in such a terrible state at this point that all hope would seem to be lost, and he told them that when things looked their darkest a red serpent (Russia and Communist ideology - Cold War) would come from the north and approach the white serpent, which would be terrified, and upon seeing the red serpent he would release the Indian, who would fall to the ground almost like a helpless child, and the white serpent would turn all its attention to the red serpent.  The bewilderment would cause the white serpent to accept the red one momentarily (after the fall of the Berlin wall, US and Russia accepted one another, but it did not last).  The white serpent would be stunned and take part of the red serpent and accept him.  Then there is a heated argument and a fight.  And then the Indian revives and crawls toward the land of the hilly country (New Mexico), and then he would assemble his people together, and they would renew their faith and the principles of peace (Eternal Divine Path) that Deganawidah had established.  There would at the same time exist among the Indians a great love and forgiveness for his brother, and in this gathering would come streams from all over -- not only the Iroquois but from all over (time for the whole of humanity to be unified and the KOHOE to be established) -- and they would gather in this hilly country, and they would renew their friendship.  And Deganawidah said they would remain neutral in this fight between the white and red serpents.

At the time they were watching the two serpents licked in this battle, a great message would come to them, which would make them ever so humble, and when they become that humble (they have been humbled through these experiences and become ready to follow the Truth), they will be waiting for a young leader, an Indian boy (some Indians emigrated from Asia to the US.  So this boy could be from Asia!), possibly in his teens, who would be a choice seer.  Nobody knows who he is or where he comes from, but he will be given great power, and would be heard by thousands, and he would give them the guidance and the hope to refrain from going back to their land and he would be the accepted leader.  And Deganawidah said that they will gather in the land of the hilly country (they all should come to New Mexico as it is the Safest place), beneath the branches of an elm tree, and they should burn tobacco and call upon Deganawidah by name when facing the darkest hours, and he will return.  Deganawidah said that as the choice seer speaks to the Indians that number as the blades of grass, and he would be heard by all at the same time (Internet), and as the Indians are gathered watching the fight, they notice from the south a black serpent coming from the sea, and he is described as dripping with salt water, and as he stands there, he rests for a spell to get his breath, all the time watching to the north to the land where the white and red serpents are fighting (the black serpent is the darkness which will come to the land.  It is silent and just watches but will affect everything and everyone).

Deganawidah said that the battle between the white and the red serpents opened very slowly but would then become so violent that the mountains would crack and the rivers would boil and the fish would turn up on their bellies (atomic bomb will be used!).  He said that there would be no leaves on the trees in that area.  There would be no grass, and that strange bugs and beetles would crawl from the ground and attack both serpents (atomic radiation and radioactive fallout), and he said that a great heat would cause the stench of death to sicken both serpents (many will die and the environment will suffer greatly).  And then, as the boy seer is watching this fight, the red serpent reaches around the back of the white serpent and pulls from him a hair which is carried toward the south by a great wind into the waiting hands of the black serpent, and as the black serpent studies this hair, it suddenly turns into a woman, a white woman who tells him things that he knows to be true but he wants to hear them again.  When this white woman finishes telling these things, he takes her and gently places her on a rock with great love and respect, and then he becomes infuriated at what he has heard, so he makes a beeline for the north, and he enters the battle between the red and white serpents with such speed and anger that he defeats the two serpents, who have already been battle weary (a third force will enter the battle and succeed in defeating the other two.  All will fall under the influence of the Darkness).

When he finishes, he stand on the chest of the white serpent, and he boasts and puts his chest out like he's the conqueror, and he looks for another serpent to conquer.  He looks to the land of the hilly country and then sees the Indian standing with his arms folded and looking ever so noble that he knows that this Indian is not the one to fight (Those who are gathered under the banner of the Mission and our teachings will be saved).  The next direction that he will face will be eastward and at that time he will be momentarily blinded by a light that is many times brighter than the sun.  The light will be coming from the east to the west over the water, and when the black serpent regains his sight, he becomes terrified and makes a beeline for the sea.  He dips into the sea and swims away in a southerly direction, and shall never again be seen by the Indians (the ignorance and darkness will eventually be defeated by the Light).  The white serpent revives, and he too sees the light, and he makes a feeble attempt to gather himself and go toward that light (even the fallen seek the Light, God).

A portion of the white serpent refuses to remain but instead makes its way toward the land of the hilly country, and there he will join the Indian People with a great love like that of a lost brother (many other people will also join the Indians).  The rest of the white serpent would go to the sea and dip into the sea and would be lost out of sight for a spell.  Then suddenly the white serpent would appear again on the top of the water and he would be slowly swimming toward the light.  Deganawidah said that the white serpent would never again be troublesome to the Indian People (humanity will realize they are brothers and sisters).  The red serpent would revive and he would shiver with great fear when he sees that light (Light will blind the lost ones!).  He would crawl to the north and leave a bloody, shaky trail northward, and he would never be seen again by the Indians (all impurities will be purified and corrected).  Deganawidah said as this light approaches that he would be that light (comes from the East and shines in the West), and he would return to his Indian People, and when he returns, the Indian People would be a greater nation than they had ever been before (all will be unified, because all see there is only One God and we are His children).

The prophecy is similar to the prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor, when there will be a time of transition of the humans to become more spiritual.  In the Two Serpents it is also explained how easily we fall into Maya (not wanting to believe in God, or forgetting about God), as in today, when so many think the only goal of life is gaining material possessions:

The bewilderment would cause the white serpent to accept the red one momentarily.  The white serpent would be stunned and take part of the red serpent and accept him.

The story of the Serpents is clearly explained in the book THOTH, and, as with Deganawidah, Maitreya will come to our aid.

My first clue was in THOTHRevelation of the RevelationTablet 22, Chapter 12:

"And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads." (Rev. 12:3)

<4>"A great red dragon": The color red is the symbol of attraction.  So the dragon is attractive and catches the attention.  The dragon is related to the Maya (Holy Mother becomes woman or passion), which is the power of the external world to bind a man and prevent him from pursuing higher consciousness.

The meaning of the word, serpent, in THOTHGlossary:

Serpent (Lucifer, Devil): same as devil.  However, it is also related to the kulakundalini (latent spiritual force).  When the kulakundalini is in the first three chakras, the serpent is a "devil."  But when it is raised to higher chakras, it becomes wisdom, or light.

The prophecy shows the world as it is now, when many are being fooled into thinking there is only the material world and forgetting about God and spirit, and ends with:

Deganawidah said as this light approaches that he would be that light, and he would return to his Indian People, and when he returns, the Indian People would be a greater nation than they had ever been before.

A greater planet is made with all people, with no distinction between race or culture.  This is what the Mission of Maitreya teaches, and much more.
