About the Book

...SIPAPUNI a Hopi word meaning place of emergence, from where we all came! The sacred conch sounds and the Great Vision Serpent appears taking the reader on a magical journey through the phantasmagoric universe of indigenous peoples of the Americas. Through time, space, spirit, architecture and ceremony we examine a new understanding of the ancient city of Teotihuacàn and the Tzolkin and their relationship to the Chaco Domain. How harmonic architecture reveals the knowledge of passive solar technology a thousand years ago among Puebloan peoples We imagine studying Astronomy through the eyes of the ancient stargazers and interpret ancient constellations on the Piedra Del Sol of the Aztecs. We find mysterious astronomical sites in Ohio associated with the largest pyramids in North America. We examine in Louisiana, an immense astronomical site a kilometer and a half in diameter and over 3000 years old. The 12th century Sinagua culture Shaman of Arizona, known as "The Magician" carried a miniature calendar that may have been a proto-type of The Aztec Piedra Del Sol. We briefly look at Thomas Jefferson's studies of Mound Builder Cultures of North America and the theories of his day and today of their western and Olmec origins. A new understanding of Meso-American history enables us to reinterpret physical remains of architecture of North America and their relationship to the cosmos. By using Mayan calendar glyphs we are able to decipher the meaning of ancient Shamanic tools and symbols interned with them We are now able to understand what lineages Southwestern Shaman Kings came from as outlined in the Popol Vuh and their meanings We see the ceremonial ball courts of Meso and North America with different eyes and how this most ancient of team sports is tied into the God's creation story here on earth. .The Great Vision Serpent then disappears as the ceremonial conch sounds, leaving us with the beginning of a new "Old" legacy!
