When the iron bird flies and horses run on wheels, the Tibetan people will be scattered like ants across the face of the earth, and the Dharma will come to the land of the red men.
- Padmasambhava, Indian Buddhist Guru who helped to spread Buddhism in Tibet in the 8th century, A.D.

When the iron bird flies, the red-robed people of the East who have lost their land will appear, and the two brothers from across the great ocean will be reunited.
- from the Book of Hopi
