By Sue Chehrenegar
the last decade of the 20th
to a close, and the
world welcomed the 21st
Century, one elementary school teacher
in LA County shared with
her students a series of facts
about the people and animals in the rain forests of South America.
She didn’t realize that the focus of her classroom presentation
allowed her students to learn about a group in which the elders

interesting prophecy, one that concerned
the period of history in which they were living. That group included
all of the indigenous people of the South American Rain Forest.
calendar used by those forest-dwelling men and women features more
than months, years, decades and centuries. It also
includes something called a
Pachakuri, a period of 500 years.
According to that calendar, mankind currently lives at the start of
the fifth Pachakuri. A prophecy familiar to the same indigenous
people has foretold the significance of this time in history. It has
made reference to a meeting between two different groups.
