The Orion Zone: Hopi Star Correlations in the American Southwest
Some may be familiar with the correlation between the pyramids of Egypt's Giza Plateau and the stars of Orion. Beginning in 1100 AD, on the Arizona desert, the Hopi constructed a similar pattern of villages that mirrors all the major stars in the constellation.
Join author Gary A. David for an intriguing Ancient Origins Premium webinar – The Orion Zone: Hopi Star Correlations in the American Southwest as he explores the sky-ground relationship in the American Southwest and its astounding global significance.
The Hisatsinom, or the ancestral Hopi (formerly known as the Anasazi), used the Orion constellation as a template to determine the locations of their stone villages in northern Arizona.
The Hopi god Masau'u, ruler of both the earth plane and the underworld, spiritually mandated this “terrestrial Orion” to closely mirror its celestial counterpart. These villages correspond to each major star in the constellation, which includes the Belt and in some respects, is similar to the Giza-Orion Correlation.
The star pattern, by its specific orientation on the land, also encodes various sunrise and sunset points of both summer and winter solstices. A central flux of ley line energy flows through the spine of the terrestrial Orion along a series of ancient pueblo sites ranging from southwestern Colorado to the mouth of the Colorado River. This indicates a functional Earth-Chakra system.
