With an intriguing thought and plenty to fascinate the student of the metaphysical, "The Kivas of Heaven" is a choice read with plenty to ponder. -Midwest Book Review

So. West Tribes and its relationship to the constellation Orion. The author has done a great deal
of remarkable research, and has posited somefascinating theories. If you are a seeker of
information about the Native American So. West Tribes and the Mayan, you will enjoy this book.
-Comparing Hopi and/or Maya symbolism to that of ancient Egypt and/or India and/or etc etc, and claiming that even the slightest and most tenuous of similarities (including anything remotely close to a "pa"/"ba" syllable in words for stars, or words for anything else really) are "no coincidence". Because the Hopi couldn't have learned how to say "pa" or "ba" without alien help to connect them to other ancient civilizations.
-Hopi flying saucers over Arizona! Yes folks, you hear it in this book first. Because heaven knows the Hopi weren't smart enough to figure anything out for themselves without the help of aliens. (it is this assertion, repeated throughout the book, that I find incredibly insulting to the Pueblo indians).
-The ancient Hopi/Maya supposedly prophesized that we would observe a supernova in Orion in 2012! (the book was written in 2010). Here is is 2015, and still waiting on that one.
-Tibet and Arizona have similar flags! There obviously must be some kind of mystical connection. Canada and Japan both have red and white flags with a red blob like thing in the middle... aliens probably are the reason behind that too.
-The ancient Pueblo people were giants! It's true! But we don't know about it because the State of California refuses to display the skeletons. Oh, and the giants had six toes. Just like the giants in the Bible (and yes, that's what it says in the book).
-Psychic archeology. 'Nuff said.
Anyway, if this is the kind of stuff that floats yer boat because you are "open minded", and because you think that all scientists are just secret operatives for the government in its quest to hide the fact that aliens obviously exist, and because you think the Pueblo indians were/are obviously too stupid to do anything without alien help, then this is the book for you!
