My mom found this book in the snail mail catalog of her favorite bookseller. She could not resist ordering, and after she read it she handed it over to me. I was a bit leery since this is not the type of book I generally read. But I must say I enjoyed every page, even the ones that made me think 'oh, yeah, right'. (My husband says that here in Mexico if you want to express that thought when someone is telling you what sounds like a tall tale, you say 'Si, Chucha!'.....which is great fun to play ...more

Dr. Clarke’s writing style is a delight. The stories she shares in Sky People are fantastic. Each chapter is intriguing with unique tales of UFO encounters and descriptions of bizarre creatures. These accounts provide a middle American perspective on what’s going on in the realm of the little known. I am so pleased and thankful to have discovered this book. I will definitely be reading her other books.

"Silver Sombrero" off to the author! Goodness...what a joy-ride!

Not only did I learn about the Maya UFO/alien experiences, but I also felt I was traveling with the author to the places she went to and interacted with the beautiful sincere souls she came face to face with.

The indigenous experiences are parallel and consistent with many other non-mesoamerica accounts that I have read in other books, or listened to on youtube.

I'm proud of Ardy for her bold solo adventure as a woman. I'm a woman and

Sky People is another superbly crafted book by Ardy Sixkiller Clarke following on her excellent book Encounters with Star People. In this one , the author details exploration of Mesoamerica especially in the Mayan regions following in the footsteps Stephens and Catherwood's early 20th century expedition. However unlike them, she seeks stories of contact between extraterrestrials and humans. Because of her Amerindian heritage she gets a unique access to people who are normally extremely reticent ...more

I loved this book! A smooth and fun read.

I loved this book so much that I want to read it and her first one over again. She writes with such passion for the subject but allows her interviewees to really narrate the story. Though some of the lines I read seemed a bit far-fetched, I believe that it's more of a translation issue, and not a subject issue. Such a great book.

Wonderfully done!!!

I was very impressed with the quality of the research and information gathered. What an honor to have been "living history" and even prophesied by Elders that knew of her arrival. I for one am convinced of her findings, and believe the accounts given. Thanks for enlightening us all.

So we'll written

The research style Ardy conducts pushes no agenda and let's her subjects tell their story without prejudice. Whenever asked what her opinion is she always replies "well what do you think?"

The stories she presents are truly remarkable and awe inspiring. And the way she details her travels makes it feel like you are by her side. Very well done!

The author comes across as earnest, sincere and honest, so I want to believe in the stories she has gathered first hand from Maya people. It's an enjoyable stretch of the imagination and of the possible, in a world, a universe, a cosmos we cannot really claim to fully understand.

A winner!

You feel right at home with the author. The stories told by the indigenous people of their observations and encounters make the Maya unique in the world. A very thought provoking book!

This series is nothing less than the most important work to hit ufo research since Jacques Vallee's "Wonders In The Sky."

“Chinkultic is a moderate-sized archeological ruin in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. It is part of Lagunas de Montebello National Park. When Stephens and Catherwood crossed into Mexico, they camped in the village of Comitan, which was called Balun Canan, the Place of Nine Stars, by the Maya prior to the Spanish invasion. Chinkultic is about thirty-five miles from Comitan; however, Stephens and Catherwood never passed that way. The” 0 likes
