Below is one version of the Warriors of the Rainbow as told by Native Americans as well as some of my thoughts on this subject.


I've included this story below from a woman I do not know but included her website info below to give proper credit.  

I have selected passages of text and made it bold, italicized and underlined as my own emphasis on these particular passages to make sure these stand out to the reader. 

If you like this, please share it and give proper credits.  


I personally have an interpretation of who the Rainbow Warriors are that is solely my own that I want to share here with you now.  

I do not believe that the reference to "rainbow" has to do solely with the color of skin as some say it is the white, black, yellow, brown, etc. and all other tribes.  Skin color may be included as a part of it but I believe it is the warriors who utilized the colors and image of the rainbow who are the true Rainbow Warriors spoken of in numerous prophecies.   

Note that the colors of the Rainbow and the Rainbow symbol is now widely regarded as the international symbol of people who identify with primarily non-heterosexual orientations (currently commonly referred to sometimes as LGBT and variations of that. LGBT is an initialism that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.).  However, I believe anyone who is interested in loving their fellow human beings is a Rainbow Warrior and it has nothing to do with sex, sexual preferences, what you wear or don't wear, pray or don't pray to, how you vote or anything else other than being a descent person.  So many people have fought long and hard for not only their own basic human rights to be respected and acknowledged but also for the rights of many if not all.  They have a warrior way of life - whether that means strictly on a personal level all the way to dealing with politics and legislation, laws, religion, rights and every other aspect of life and society.  In standing up for what is right for themselves they also shine a light on what is right and just for all equally.  Just as the rainbow incorporates and includes ALL of the visible light spectrum and does not exclude any one particular color/frequency/vibration, we as humankind must include all and exclude no one.  Everyone is beautiful, equal, free and this human spirit that connects us all is all that matters.  Live and let live.  Love and let love. 

Know that the Rainbow Warriors are here.  

They fight for us all.  

I am happy and humbled to consider myself one of the many Rainbow Warriors.

As another personal note:  I find it so strange, utterly rude, completely idiotic as well as totally perverted, voyeuristic and just plain creepy that strangers are interested and get themselves involved in what other strangers are doing in the privacy of their own home and with their families, jobs and lives.  

Let us all first focus on our own life, take care of our own business and then focus on helping and loving everyone else.

Warriors of the Rainbow


There was an old lady, from the "Cree" tribe, named "Eyes of Fire", who prophesied that one day, because of the white mans' or Yo-ne-gis' greed, there would come a time, when the fish would die in the streams, the birds would fall from the air, the waters would be blackened, and the trees would no longer be, mankind as we would know it would all but cease to exist.

There would come a time when the "keepers of the legend, stories, culture rituals, and myths, and all the Ancient Tribal Customs" would be needed to restore us to health. They would be mankinds’ key to survival, they were the "Warriors of the Rainbow". There would come a day of awakening when all the peoples of all the tribes would form a New World of Justice, Peace, Freedom and recognition of the Great Spirit.

The "Warriors of the Rainbow" would spread these messages and teach all peoples of the Earth or "Elohi". They would teach them how to live the "Way of the Great Spirit". They would tell them of how the world today has turned away from the Great Spirit and that is why our Earth is "Sick".

The "Warriors of the Rainbow" would show the peoples that this "Ancient Being" (the Great Spirit), is full of love and understanding, and teach them how to make the "Earth or Elohi" beautiful again. These Warriors would give the people principles or rules to follow to make their path right with the world. These principles would be those of the Ancient Tribes. The Warriors of the Rainbow would teach the people of the ancient practices of Unity, Love and Understanding. They would teach of Harmony among people in all four comers of the Earth.

Like the Ancient Tribes, they would teach the peoples how to pray to the Great Spirit with love that flows like the beautiful mountain stream, and flows along the path to the ocean of life. Once again, they would be able to feel joy in solitude and in councils. They would be free of petty jealousies and love all mankind as their brothers, regardless of color, race or religion. They would feel happiness enter their hearts, and become as one with the entire human race. Their hearts would be pure and radiate warmth, understanding and respect for all mankind, Nature, and the Great Spirit. They would once again fill their minds, hearts, souls, and deeds with the purest of thoughts. They would seek the beauty of the Master of Life - the Great Spirit! They would find strength and beauty in prayer and the solitudes of life.

Their children would once again be able to run free and enjoy the treasures of Nature and Mother Earth. Free from the fears of toxins and destruction, wrought by the Yo-ne-gi and his practices of greed. The rivers would again run clear, the forests be abundant and beautiful, the animals and birds would be replenished. The powers of the plants and animals would again be respected and conservation of all that is beautiful would become a way of life.

The poor, sick and needy would be cared for by their brothers and sisters of the Earth. These practices would again become a part of their daily lives.

The leaders of the people would be chosen in the old way - not by their political party, or who could speak the loudest, boast the most, or by name calling or mud slinging, but by those whose actions spoke the loudest. Those who demonstrated their love, wisdom, and courage and those who showed that they could and did work for the good of all, would be chosen as the leaders or Chiefs. They would be chosen by their "quality" and not the amount of money they had obtained. Like the thoughtful and devoted "Ancient Chiefs", they would understand the people with love, and see that their young were educated with the love and wisdom of their surroundings. They would show them that miracles can be accomplished to heal this world of its ills, and restore it to health and beauty.

The tasks of these "Warriors of the Rainbow" are many and great. There will be terrifying mountains of ignorance to conquer and they shall find prejudice and hatred. They must be dedicated, unwavering in their strength, and strong of heart. They will find willing hearts and minds that will follow them on this road of returning "Mother Earth" to beauty and plenty - once more.

The day will come, it is not far away. The day that we shall see how we owe our very existence to the people of all tribes that have maintained their culture and heritage. Those that have kept the rituals, stories, legends, and myths alive. It will be with this knowledge, the knowledge that they have preserved, that we shall once again return to "harmony" with Nature, Mother Earth, and mankind. It will be with this knowledge that we shall find our "Key to our Survival".

This is the story of the "Warriors of the Rainbow" and this is my reason for protecting the culture, heritage, and knowledge of my ancestors. I know that the day "Eyes of Fire" spoke of - will come! I want my children and grandchildren to be prepared to accept this task.The task of being one of the........"Warriors of the Rainbow".
