On vacation last year, I paid a brief visit to the Hopi Indian reservation in Arizona. While there, I saw an intriguing reference in a museum to a Hopi legend about the coming of the "white man"—which was one of the reasons they initially welcomed Europeans, until it became apparent that we were not the fulfillment of the legend. I asked a couple of people while I was there, but I couldn't get a simple answer as to the origin of this legend. Would someone be able to point me in the right direction for more information?

I was watching part of a documentary on either the Aztec or Mayan cultures (I think it was the latter)  sometime in the last week or two and heard something strikingly similar about their god, who promised one day to return.  Apparently they initially mistook the conquistadors as being representatives of him since they were white, or something similar.  Talk about a bummer of a mistake... Lips sealed

Maybe there is a correlation?

EDIT:  Knew I heard this, check out this link.  Apparently it's more Aztec than Maya but there is some overlap:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quetzalcoatl

scroll down to "Moctezuma controversy" and the idea that the king thought that Hernán Cortés was the god.
