MUFON Tonight Features Gary A. David on 'The Kivas of Heaven: Ancient Hopi Starlore'

The regional UFO meeting is Tuesday in Studio City.

(Here's information about the Mutual UFO Network meeting held on Tuesday, April 17 at 7 p.m. at the 12355 Moorpark St., Studio City.)


After being intrigued by the Four Corners region of the United States for nearly fifteen years, Gary David moved to Arizona in 1994 and began an intensive study of the ancestral Pueblo People and their descendants, the Hopi. 

Join Arizona author and independent investigator Gary A. David as we explore Native American cosmology and prophecy traditions that might be able to tell us something important about Earth changes that may be coming our way.

Orion dominates the winter sky, flanked by Taurus the Bull on one side and Canis the Great Dog on the other--three key constellations for the Hopi and prehistoric Pueblo Peoples of the American Southwest. When these stars appear in the entryway to the kiva roof, they synchronize the sacred rituals being performed below. Here we see how a complex ceremonial cycle mirrors the turning of the heavens.

Gary A. David has travelled extensively throughout the Desert Southwest, studying the archaeological ruins and the rock art of the Anasazi and the culture of their descendants, the Hopi. David is familiar with fascinating and little-known facts about the Hopi, one of the most mysterious and secretive tribes on the North American continent.

Gary will be discussing how a group of ancestral Hopi stone villages was constructed over a period of centuries in a pattern that mirrors the shape of the star constellation Orion. He will talk about Hopi kachinas, various cryptozoological creatures of Hopi legend such as the Ant People, the Hopi underworld god who resembles an ET Grey, Hopi "flying shields," and rock carvings depicting "star elders" and their craft. You will come away with a deep appreciation of how the Ancient Ones viewed the world above. 

Gary has a Master’s Degree in English Literature from the University of Colorado. His articles have appeared in Ancient American, Atlantis Rising, Fate, UFO, World Explorer, and Graham Hancock’s new anthology, Lost Knowledge of the Ancients. In 2006, after more than a decade of independent research, Gary’s first book, “The Orion Zone: Ancient Star Cities of the American Southwest” was published by Adventures Unlimited Press. This was followed by “Eye of the Phoenix: Mysterious Visions and Secrets of the American Southwest” in 2008. The final volume in this nonfiction trilogy, “The Kivas of Heaven: Ancient Hopi Starlore” was released in late 2010
