A wonderful vintage Dreamland from November 11, 2000 about Native American Prophecies. Nancy Red Star crossed the country discovering what various traditions had to say about the star ancestors. Whitley tells about what happened when he sent researchers to the Jicarilla Apache reservation in New Mexico to find out if stories about an underground UFO base there were true.
