"It is refreshing to see an honest effort to tap UFO reports from an older society not nearly so influenced by movies, TV, hoaxers, etc. as ours. I am not surprised that Ardy, with considerable effort, was able to dig out reports from Mayans. I hope she will continue her work and share it with those of us serious about such matters."
--Stanton T. Friedman, MSc., author of Flying Saucers and Science
"Commendations are due to Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke. She shares her unique understanding of American Indian cultures and traditions. And now, as a story-teller, she honors thousands of participants and their families by collecting and reporting their extraterrestrial encounters. The UFO community--and all of humanity--is blessed by her heritage, training and professional effort to combine Science and Spirit."
--R. Leo Sprinkle, PhD, professor emeritus, University of Wyoming
"Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke has for more than 20 years done a tremendous amount of field work and has carefully and with spiritual sensitivity collected these stories from the original witnesses. This book is an impressive documentation of the scope and depth of the UFO enigma."
--Hakan Blomqvist, Cofounder and Chairman, Archives for UFO Research (AFU), Sweden
"From the beginning, American Indians have told stories about their ancestors who came from the stars. There is now a growing realization that those ancient star civilizations have not forgotten this world. Through the diligent work of the author, Dr. Clarke, and her hundreds of interviews with Indian people throughout the Americas, we can all learn of remarkable, present-day close encounters with Star People."
--Richard O'Connor, MD, executive director, The Jesse A. Marcel Library

If you are interested in the UFO Phenomenon then this is the books for you. Sky People is a collection of interviews with the indigenous people of Belize, Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico about encounters with UFOs. After being influenced at an early age by explorers John L. Stephens and Frederick Catherwood who documented the existence of ancient cities in the jungles of Mesoamerica. My favorite part about this book is that it has dozens of stories that I have never heard of before. Some of the people who told these stories are now dead. Old farmers living in very remote areas would have no reason to make some of these things up.
Many of the stories tell about those who willingly and happily travel with the star people in order to learn, and sometimes to teach, to those who feel used or abused. It seems that fear of the visitors is a common reaction. There are a surprising number of UFO abduction stories, with missing memories and missing time, and while almost all are returned unharmed, there is one boy who went missing, and some where a woman became pregnant, but only for a few months. All in all I think it is a great book for anyone interested in UFOs.
Many of the stories collected had only been told once or a few times to close family and friends. Family and the local community were often not open to hearing about these strange events, so the stories remained untold. Being indigenous herself helped to open doors, but Dr. Clarke also always treated the people she interviewed with the utmost kindness and respect, and she observed all the appropriate social graces. People just seemed to like her a lot! It is unlikely that anyone else could have collected these stories, and they are incredible stories.
The stories cover a wide range of experiences, from those who willingly and happily travel with the star people in order to learn, and sometimes to teach, to those who feel used or abused. It seems that fear of the visitors is a common reaction. There are a surprising number of UFO abduction stories, with missing memories and missing time, and while almost all are returned unharmed, there is one boy who went missing, and some where a woman became pregnant, but only for a few months. Unlike cases where hypnosis was used in attempt to recover memories (a process which may not be reliable), no hypnosis is used, and the witnesses are highly believable.
The scene setting and background information on Dr. Clarke’s travels and encounters, and on the historical journeys of Stephens and Catherwood, provided cultural and emotional context for the stories and was also quite interesting in itself. It’s an easy, fun read. Anyone with a serious interest in the extraterrestrial presence on Earth will want to get this book and read it!
How clever that we non Mayas were so intensely focused on the 2012 calendar date yet when the Earth kept revolving like normal on Dec. 22 we believed that 'as always' nothing really changes and fell back into our distracted electronic existence. Which is exactly why the Maya will be here afterwards and we won't. As it should be. A friend of mine once said "I would die so the Earth could live." I thought it an extreme viewpoint when I first heard him say it. Now I agree.
My family is the beneficiary of the George Van Tassel (Giant Rock 1950s) UFO library. He speaks of this time as the 'Father's housecleaning amongst his planets. If the fleas ever needed being shook off the dog, the time is now. Thank you Ms. Clarke for documenting the beliefs and experiences of this ancient and wise race so that if we do have to go at least we know that love remains. The Dark and the Negative should not inherit the Earth.
