Robert Morning Sky’s Grandfather helped rescue an extraterrestrial from a crashed UFO in 1947 (shortly after the famous Roswell incident).


After the six young Native Americans found and pulled Star Elder from the crash, they hid him for several months in their desert camp while they nursed him back to health. Star Elder later told them about alien visitations to the earth over countless centuries.

Star Elder told them about the different races of star beings and the wars they had fought with one another. He told them of genetic scientists who created human life on earth by using their own DNA.


He related to them the ongoing power struggle between the descendants of these star beings who have ruled earth since before humans became civilized.

"I heard these stories as I grew up, never once disbelieving," he says. "In college, however, I found myself questioning the possibility that perhaps these stories might not be true. I thus enrolled in Religious Studies, an independent study program that would allow me an opportunity to research ancient records to try to prove or disprove the many stories of the Star Elder.

"In the late 1960’s, I submitted a thesis to my Religious Studies professor that summed up the three years of research on my part. I entitled it Terra: A Hidden History of Planet Earth. Within days, he had labeled it ’a work of blasphemy and outrage!’

"Having had no success in the academic field, I decided to contact UFO organizations and researchers. Their general response was to label the work ’the stuff of myth and legend of Native Americans, not suitable to the serious study of a scientific phenomena.’

"Circumstances have changed. My grandfather is gone, but not before he had elicited a promise from me to try once more to tell the story,"

Morning Sky says. His promise was to try for one year, and one year only.


Since February of 1995, Morning Sky has traveled almost constantly, mesmerizing audiences large and small from coast to coast with the information he painstakingly uncovered from ancient records. He speaks in living rooms, theaters, and in school auditoriums; on radio and TV shows, and in personal interviews: anywhere people will listen to him. He has quickly become a favorite speaker at expos and UFO conferences. His words resonate with truth, and people receive answers to far more questions than they could ever think to ask.

In light of his rapidly increasing acceptance and popularity, will he continue? Even he does not know.

"Do I want to continue? No. Will I keep on? I can honestly say that I do not know. But people are finally listening, and they may not allow me to quit. I just do not know.


"This one year has cost me my past life, it has cost me people that I care about. It ripped my heart out. Except for my wife and my daughter, the rest of my family has been ripped away from me. There is not a whole lot more they can do to me. I have lost everybody. I have lost my granddad. And that is why the people who are stepping forwarded to give me a hand are a blessing to me.

"What I am to show with all the information included in Terra Papers I and II, the Terra Documents, and in lectures and workshops is just what really is happening. I am saying, ’Look guys, here is the truth without our prejudice, without our experiences, without our beliefs. If you don’t know the truth, you can’t deal with your own destiny, your own free will. We need to know that we are being programmed and controlled.

I will be very honest. What I am talking about in the open is not even the tip of the iceberg. People say, ’ What are we going to do, what if there are extraterrestrials out there, and what do they want?’


My suggestion is always essentially,

’If you really want to do something, then you are going to have to assume responsibility for your life in toto—completely.’

That is scary. To grab hold of every single facet of your life is one of the scariest things there is.

"My grandfather found himself in the same situation that I do. He tried to tell people what is going on, but he couldn’t get them to listen. I tried, right after college, but I couldn’t get anyone to listen, either. I guess the time is now.

"Since 1947 we have been trying to talk about this and here is it almost 50 years later and I am now finally getting some measure of success. My granddad was very proud of that. He was in tears, and said, ’You know, somebody’s listening and you can’t turn away.’ And I said, ’Screw you! I’m the one who has to go out there and paint the target on his forehead!’ But I understand what he was saying.

"My Apache grandfather’s nickname was Dare-any [pronounced Dare-ah’-nee]. It means ’He is not afraid of anybody or anything.’ He is the one who helped rescue Star Elder. He had the passion; he had the guile; he had the endurance, the stamina, the ability, and he was afraid of no man and no thing. I was so proud of him. He was nuts. He was crazy. He was insane. I loved the guy. He had a ranch where any Indian could come and stay, anybody who needed a haven, a sanctuary, a time out.


To this day I believe my philosophy, my way of life is Hopi, and the spiritual is Hopi. But the living, the drama, the intensity, and the passion is very, very, Apache.

"Neither my grandfather nor I have ever wanted to stay ’in contact’ with the Star Elder. If we know where the Star Elder is, that obviously puts him in jeopardy. When it is necessary, he lets us know and he will appear at the right time and place. If I need to talk to him, I simply leave a sign and he contacts me. But the originator of the contact is always the Star Elder.

"If you were walking in the mall and Star Elder walked by you, you would not know he is an extraterrestrial. It is the Indian trick of you are out there, you are in the open, but they don’t see you. Yes, he’s made appearances. Yes, he has walked in the Canyonlands. He has walked in some of the big cities here. He has gotten around. He is out in the open, though, and he is very skillful at not being seen. Very skillful.

"His head is very large; out of proportion. You would probably look at him and think, ’What a queer little man,’ or ’Gee, he’s odd.’ But he is very, very humanoid.

"He probably thinks we are real beasts. We’ve got no class, we have no style. We’re monkeys with potential. Sometimes we are very cute; sometimes we are belligerent. We are as difficult for him to understand as he is for us. We have a lot of questions about him. He has the same curiosity, but his questions are obviously on a more galactic scale.

’Do you ever go to Mars?’ ’Does anyone do any dimensional shifting?’ ’Do you guys know how to shapeshift?’

"He interacts minimally with human beings because we are our own worst enemy. We are programmed to self-destruct. We are really not programmed to be open, to be aware; we are not taught to think. That is why I am doing all these things. I am trying to wake us up, trying to give us a chance. Star Elder’s primary mission is to undo the enemy system. And if in so doing he also creates or provides an opportunity for the beast to become wiser, to become aware, to become evolved, to become enhanced, that is icing on the cake; that is a secondary benefit.

I grew up with the stories, I have done the research, and I have paid my price. I am very proud of what I have done and, in his own way, Star Elder has said he is very proud of what I have done. I have exceeded expectations.

"However, one of the things that is most impressive to him is that I can go out there and say things that are sacrilegious, blasphemous, completely against the grain, and we have people stand up and say, ’I want to help.’


You guys don’t have contact with the Elder, you haven’t had the experience, but somehow, some way, you recognize the truth in what I am saying or you see the merit in what we are trying to do. To the Star Elder, that is impressive.

"This is not about me, it is about the fact that you guys - the rest of the planet - are doing things to help ourselves. That is the most impressive aspect of all this to the Star Elder and why he is encouraging me to continue.

"I am so proud of the overwhelming support I am receiving because it has nothing to do with me. It has to do with the fact that what I am saying others have thought. I think maybe the most common compliment I hear is, ’You know, I’ve been thinking that, I just didn’t know how to say it.’ It has to do with the fact that to people it’s making sense.

"We are getting phone calls from Germany, Japan, Australia, all over. We have been contacted by the TV programs Sightings and Unsolved Mysteries. We have been asked to do a tour in Europe. I am astounded at the response, that it is finally happening.

"I am sure the Star Elder is doing his own part, his own way, helping to make things happen. At the same time, whatever happens has to come from us. It can’t just be my effort, it has to be all of us.

"I am very fortunate that I have people helping me. But more than anything, having Dare-any for my Grandfather, having my wife and my daughter, being in contact with the Elder... I am very thankful. I am the luckiest man that ever lived.


The rewards are incredible and the lows are [laughs] on the other end of the scale."
