This Sunday, at 5:00 p.m. PT on Zoom, our fireside speaker Roman Orona, an Apache, Pueblo, and Yaqui artist, will discuss how the Baha’i Faith has fulfilled so many Indigenous prophecies

“As an Indigenous person, prophecy is the guiding light. It’s the foundation [on] which we live. It’s everything,” Roman says. “All of those prophecies were given to us — to lead and to be good people. …It gives the roadmap for not only Indigenous people but for humans period.”

Baha’is understand how significant these Indigenous messengers of God were and honor their contributions to humanity. In a letter from the Universal House of Justice, the global governing body of the Baha’i Faith, to the 1972 Baha’i Unity Conference on the Navajo Nation, they wrote:

The All-Wise Creator of earth and heaven has from the beginning which has no beginning sent to His peoples Divine Messengers to guide them to the Straight Path. These Wise Ones have come to establish the unity of the Kingdom in human hearts.

This great evolutionary process of building the organic unity of the human race has entered a new stage with this mighty message of Baha’u’llah. His voice is the voice of the Great Spirit. His love for humankind is the force of the New Age.

Roman hopes that those who attend this fireside chat will “understand the validity of Indigenous peoples — and their prophecies” and that they “are not a people of the past.”

“We’re here and we’re living in your neighborhoods and we’re humans, first and foremost. We’re not mascots. We’re not anything else other than Indigenous people, trying to live the best life we can and trying to get over colonialism.”
