Gary A. David is an author and independent researcher who has been intrigued by the American Southwest since his initial trip there in 1987. The following year he lived for about six months in northern New Mexico, where he studied archaeological ruins and rock art. In 1994 he moved to Arizona and began an intensive study of the ancestral Pueblo People (sometimes incorrectly referred to as the Anasazi) and their descendants the Hopi.

In 2006 after more than a decade of fieldwork and scholarly inquiry, his nonfiction book The Orion Zone: Ancient Star Cites of the American Southwest was published. This volume describes a pattern of Hopi villages and ruin sites that precisely mirrors Orion, with an ancient site corresponding to each major star in the constellation.

The sequel released in 2008 is titled Eye of the Phoenix: Mysterious Visions and Secrets of the American Southwest. In 2010 the third book in the series called The Kivas of Heaven: Ancient Hopi Starlore was published. In November 2012 the next in the series titled Star Shrines and Earthworks of the Desert Southwest was released. All four books are available from Adventures Unlimited Press, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, and fine bookstores everywhere. Some available in Kindle edition. His book Mirrors of Orion: Star Knowledge of the Ancient World was published in 2014, and his new book Journey of the Serpent People was released in November of 2017. Both are available on Amazon.

His articles or interviews have appeared in Ancient American, Atlantis Rising, Fate, Four Corners, Sagenhafte Zeiten (Erich von Däniken’s “Legendary Times”), World Explorer, and UFO magazines. One of Gary’s essays were also published in Lost Knowledge of the Ancients: a Graham Hancock Reader and Mysteries of the Ancient Past: a Graham Hancock Reader. Gary continues to give lectures and international radio interviews, including Coast to Coast AM, Dreamland, Jeff Rense, the Paracast, Capricorn Radio and others. He recently appeared on the History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens,” Travel Channel’s “Mysteries of the National Parks,” Brad Meltzer’s Decoded,” “2012: The Coming Apocalypse,” as well as the Japanese program “Cosmo Space of America,”
and Russian TV.

Mr. David earned a bachelors degree in Arts from Kent State University and a Master of Arts in the literature of the American West and creative writing from the University of Colorado.

He has worked as a adjunct professor of English and creative writing, a traveling ambassador for the South Dakota Arts Council, and a professional lead guitarist/vocalist.

Gary is also the author of a number of poetry books, including A Log of Deadwood: a Postmodern Epic of the South Dakota Gold Rush (North Atlantic Books, Berkeley, 1993) and Tierra Zia: Poems and Petroglyphs from New Mexico (Nine Muses Books, Winston, Oregon, 1996), both available from  In addition, he is editor and webmaster of Island Hills Books, an online publishing house, distribution center, and showcase for literature that focuses on the spirit of place.

The Orion Zone - Ancient Star Cities of the American Southwest

The Orion Zone: Ancient Star Cities of the American Southwest

Ancient star lore exploring the mysterious location of Pueblos in the American Southwest, circa 1100 AD, that appear to be a mirror image of the major stars of the Orion constellation. Many readers are familiar with the correlation between the pyramids of Egypt and the stars of Orion. Beginning in 1100 A.D. on the Arizona desert, the Hopi constructed a similar pattern of villages that mirrors all the major stars in the constellation. “As Above, so Below.” The Orion Zone explores this ground-sky relationship and its astounding global significance. Packed with diagrams, maps, astronomical charts, and photos of ruins and rock art, this useful guidebook decodes the ancient mysteries of the Pueblo Indian world.


Star Shrines and Earthworks of the Desert Southwest

Star Shrines and Earthworks of the Desert Southwest

Over a period of centuries the Ancient Ones of the American Southwest constructed a pattern of sandstone villages that precisely matches key constellations in the sky. This book plunges you into the mysteries of these unified star correlations.

Other fascinating topics include: Orion’s global stargate shrines, Arizona earth chakras, crypto-creatures and star ancestors. Encounter a pre-Columbian counterculture in New Mexico, a prehistoric Mexican city obsessed with macaws, and the lost empire of Aztlán. Read compelling evidence of transoceanic migrations to the Southwest in early epochs. Find out why an extensive road system was built by a people who did not use the wheel. Learn the purpose of massive pyramids and canals made by those who once lived on the site of modern-day Phoenix. Time-travel back to the Age of Taurus for the current significance of the Crab Nebula supernova. Then return to explore the subterranean origin of the Anasazi, the cave conundrum of Grand Canyon, the Hopi Mystery Egg and prophecies of the Fifth World.

Richly illustrated with satellite maps, star charts, historic photos, and diagrams, this guidebook to native cultures of the celestial desert elegantly elucidates the motto “As above, so below.”

Eye of the Phoenix - Mysterious Visions and Secrets in the American Southwest

Eye of the Phoenix: Mysterious Visions and Secrets in the American Southwest

Eye of the Phoenix explores enigmas and anomalies in the vast American Southwest. The high desert boggles the mind and enchants the soul of anyone who enters its strangle dimensions. Having witnessed sacred Hopi ceremonies and rock art, Mr. David discusses little known aspects of the indigenous people of the Four Corners region.

He also believes that a global culture existing in pre-Columbian times profoundly influenced the dynamics of daily life there. In other words, ancient people got around much more than traditional historians are willing to acknowledge. This book provides evidence of this.

Read about: Ant People, Snake People, Dog Star People, Sedona Sanskrit, Arizona Knights Templar Crosses, Reptilian Round Towers, Frontier Freemasonry, Meteor Crater, Hopi Kachinas, Golden Mean Spirals, Stone Tablets and End Times.

The Kivas of Heaven: Ancient Hopi Starlore

Orion dominates the winter sky, flanked by Taurus the Bull on one side and Canis the Great Dog on the other-three key constellations for the Hopi and prehistoric Pueblo People of the American Southwest. When these stars appear in the entryway of the kiva roof, they synchronize the sacred rituals being performed below. Here we see how a complex ceremonial cycle mirrors the turning of the heavens.

Join Arizona author and independent investigator Gary A. David as he explores the native “legacy of prophecy” related to Earth changes and 2012.

Stargates, UFOs, Indian Mothman, natural psychedelics, cannibal giants, psychic archaeology, earth chakra lines, and the Hopi-Egyptian connection-this book is packed with fascinating and little-known facts about one of the most mysterious and secretive tribes on the North American continent. You will come away with a deep appreciation of the way the Ancient Ones viewed the world above.


Mirrors of Orion - Star Knowledge of the Ancient World.jpg

Mirrors of Orion: Star Knowledge of the Ancient World

The phrase “As above, so below” is attributed to the Egyptian god of wisdom named Thoth. This echoes the biblical expression “on earth as it is in heaven.” Many diverse ancient cultures have erected sacred cities, pyramids, standing stones, or temples in order to mirror the stars. In particular the constellation Orion has been repeatedly projected as a talismanic pattern on numerous landscapes around the world. This book describes the sky-ground templates of Egypt, the American Southwest, Mexico, Nazca, the UK, Europe, Syria, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, and other regions. It also discusses the celestial rituals of the Mithras cult, the Age of Taurus, the Sirius cosmology of the Dogon, and South African rock art. This essential archaeo-astronomy primer expands the star correlation theory to encompass the entire globe. Packed with nearly 225 photos, drawings, diagrams, maps, and star charts.

“As above, so below. The parallels Gary David has found between the ancient Egyptian sky-ground system involving the pyramids of Giza and the constellation of Orion, and a similar project to build heaven on earth by the Hopi of Arizona, are eerie, compelling and deeply thought-provoking.” –Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods

“Gary David’s work is a treasure of enormous importance.” –William Henry, author of Lost Secrets of the Watchers

“The correlation Mr. David makes between the Hopi and Egyptian ‘sky-view’ is most interesting.” –Robert Bauval, author of The Orion Mystery

“…a must-read for pre-Columbian aficionados and aspiring anthropologists alike.” –Ross Hamilton, author of Star Mounds

From the INTRODUCTION: This book is a survey of the archaeo-astronomy of various cultures around the globe. How did ancient people conceptualize the heavens? What was their notion of the cosmos? How did their sacred ceremonies or ritual enactments bring them closer to the omnipotent or at least very powerful celestial beings? What structures, temples, or standing stones did they erect to create models of the sky realm? By its very nature this book is extensive rather than intensive, allowing the reader to pursue further areas of special cultural interest. In essence, it is a primer for the concept of sky-ground mirrors—the terra firmament, so to speak. Well-known constellation correlations, such as the Orion-Giza schema, join newly discovered sidereal correspondences, such as those in Syria and Nigeria. Ancient people comprehended the language of the stars much better than we do today, despite our Hubble Space Telescope and Very Large Array. If we can translate the encoded messages from the celestial dimension to understand what these time-traveling pinpoints of light are endeavoring to tell us, then we will realize the complexity and depths of our past knowledge of a truly living cosmos. We will ultimately find that spirit and matter are a single continuum extending far into our future—mirror reflecting mirror down the sacred portal that leads to Orion.


Journey of the Serpent People - Hopi Migrations and Star Correlations.jpg

Journey of the Serpent People: Hopi Migrations and Star Correlations

According to their mythological traditions, the Hopi of northern Arizona have survived three world-ages—each created and then destroyed because of social or spiritual chaos. We are now at the end of the Fourth World, and soon going into the Fifth. Migration legends tell of Serpent People, the Nagas, who sailed on reed rafts across the Pacific from the continent of Mu to America in order to escape a deluge that wiped out the Third World. In antiquity the Hopi performed the Snake Dance in order to bring rain. This ritual still forms a crucial part of their sacred ceremonial cycle, in which the Antelope People equally participate.

Some of the main points presented in this book are:

•Ancestral Hopi mariners floated eastward with the equatorial countercurrents, landed on the west coast of North America, and gradually worked their way northward to arrive in the Four Corners region of the U.S.

•The Hopi emerged from Grand Canyon, transitioning from the Third World into the current Fourth World.

•Starting about 2500 BC, the Hopi Snake Clan made migrations north into Canada, south to Central America, west to the Pacific Ocean, and east to the Atlantic Ocean. They perhaps even helped to build Ohio’s Great Serpent Mound, which is oriented to the Pole Star and Sirius.

•There the Snake Clan and the Horn Clan met with a race of giants called the Allegewi, who built astounding earthworks and possibly even created the Serpent effigy itself. The book provides evidence of the latter group’s origin in North Africa.

•In their 1994 bestseller The Orion Mystery, Robert Bauval and Adrian Gilbert proposed what is known as the Orion Correlation Theory. They had discovered an ancient “unified ground plan” in which the pyramids at Giza form the pattern of Orion’s Belt. According to their entire configuration, the Great Pyramid (Khufu) represents Alnitak, the middle pyramid (Khafra) represents Alnilam, and the slightly offset smaller pyramid (Menkaura) represents Mintaka.

•On the other side of the globe I have discovered another Orion template. The Hopi tribe had migrated around the American Southwest for millennia, finally settling in northern Arizona in about the early 12th century AD. They built huge stone “apartment” complexes called pueblos, and subsisted as farmers on the harsh high desert. In Hopi cosmology the region that corresponds to the Duat–Egyptian afterlife–is called Tuuwanasavi (literally, “Center of the World”), located near the three Hopi Mesas. Similar to the ground-sky dualism of the three primary structures at Giza, these natural “pyramids” closely reflect the belt stars of Orion.

This bold but rigorously researched book reveals the genetic and cultural connections between diverse peoples, including the Hopi, Hohokam, Mimbres, Navajo, Ojibwa, and Lenni Lenape of North America, as well as the Egyptians and Berbers of North Africa. This 560-page book is packed with 900 endnotes and 265 photos, drawings, maps, and sky charts.




Who were they?… Why did they come?… What did they leave behind?… Where did they go?… Will they return?…
