Most people living outside of the mountains and valleys of Idaho, Nevada and Utah have never heard of one of the more flamboyant UFO contactees of the late 1960s and early 1970s, the Mormon prophet and friend of the Native Americans Paul Solem of Howe, Bingham County, Idaho. At the height of his ministry in 1969 and 1970, Solem together with a contingent of Native American elders and chiefs, consistently called down flying saucers in the presence of massive crowds and issued prophetic proclamations of startling events that would come to pass on the Earth, especially the United States, well into the middle of the twenty-first century.

Paul Solem, a rancher by trade and Scandinavian by ancestry, was born at West Springs, Cook County, Illinois, on 28 January 1921. He lived for 91 years, passing away on 11 February 2012. Solem’s spouse, Ada (1914-1989), was seven years his senior and they were both members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. They were married in 1943 and had one child, a daughter Sylvia, who was born in 1944 and lived through 1975.[1]

First Encounter with Extraterrestrials

Paul Solem’s first encounter with UFOs and extraterrestrials took place back in June 1948. He and Ada invited his brother-in-law, who lived nearby in Howe, over for dinner. After finishing their meal, the three went out onto the front porch of the ranch house. That’s when Paul took note of three round, glowing objects speeding toward them over the field where he grazed his cattle. When the UFOs were about 500 feet from his home, two of them veered away, passing over Saddle Mountain to the north. The other object was left to hover directly in front of the witnesses.[2]

All three being Mormons, they could not help but attach spiritual significance to the appearance of these mysterious objects. Paul remembered from the Priesthood Quorum lessons that the prophet Brigham Young once taught that, “Adam was the person who brought the animals and the seeds from other planets to this world. He brought a wife with him and stayed here.”[3] When Young made this statement, he was providing his interpretation to one of the Latter-Day Saints’ scriptures, Chapter 5 of The Book of Abraham, which describes conditions existing on other inhabited worlds, more advanced than our own.

For Paul Solem, he held no qualms about the existence of intelligent beings existing beyond the Earth, nor having developed advanced vehicles that could transport them from their planet to ours. He believed that there were probably beings inside those objects, piloting them, and that perhaps they were angelic, coming from one of the higher degrees of the Celestial Kingdom. If there were angels onboard, Paul reasoned that they could probably read the intentions of his heart, a psychic ability that we now refer to as “mental telepathy.”

“Maybe I can communicate with the pilot or some of the crew of that spaceship if I can frame a question in my mind for someone onboard to answer,” the rancher reasoned. Concentrating, Paul Solem thought hard, formulating pertinent questions for any beings that might be tuning in to his thought process.

He could only come up with two. “Who are you?” and “Where are you from?”

No sooner did he come up with these questions than he heard a voice inside his head, replying, “We are from another planet. You can be sure that you will hear from us later.”

Second Encounter

It was not until the fall of 1952 that Paul Solem got to see another UFO. This time there was a multi-colored light, hovering in the sky directly over his ranch. As it started to move, Paul got in his car, turned the ignition and revved up the motor. He was bound and determined to follow the object in his car for as long as he possibly could. He kept the UFO in sight, following it in his car for three miles until it landed in the Lost River Sinks. Once it came to full rest on the ground, the lights on the object dimmed and went out. In the full light of the Moon, Paul observed a metallic disc, like one of those “flying saucers” that the fellow Idahoan and civilian pilot, Kenneth Arnold, had seen speeding over the tops of Mt. Rainier in neighboring Washington State, the ones he described to the news reporters in the summer of 1947.

An Alien Being

In this encounter with the unknown, there was a tremendous difference. Instead of a disembodied voice speaking in his head, there was a splendid being standing next to the flying saucer. At first glance, Paul Solem took this entity to be a slender woman of above average height, about six feet in stature with long blond hair and clothed in a white uniform, something akin to a jump suit with gold trim. Upon closer examination, however, Paul determined that this rather tapered individual was not a woman, but a man, quite androgenous in his overall appearance. “So, this is what an angel looks like,” the contactee mused to himself.

The alien being was the first to broach the silence, speaking orally instead of telepathically. “Greetings, Paul. As you surmised, I am, indeed, the one you communicated with back in 1948. The planet I come from is Venus, the second one out from the Sun in its orbit. In a sense, our souls have been linked throughout the eternities. You are a physical aspect of myself, while I am a sort of guardian angel, watching over you. I am simultaneously keeping my eye on many other aspects, incarnations in other timelines and physical dimensions. You might say that I understand you better than you can understand yourself.”

“I’m stunned,” replied Paul Solem. “But tell me, please, what is your name? How should I call you?”

“For the time being, since we have so much in common, let’s just say that I am Paul Two.

“Before you arrived on Earth,” he added, “we lived on Venus and served the Collective there as a spiritual teacher. I want you to know that I was ever at your side in the past four years.[4] I know that you were discouraged when your bishop and priesthood authorities in your ward failed to take your report of the flying saucer seriously. Even your community at large, despite being mostly Mormon, failed to grasp the gravity of you and your kin’s experience with us. But I and others within the Collective value your insight and believe that you can still help us with our informative mission here on Earth.”

“What do you want me to do?” Paul inquired.

“In your current incarnation, you are to direct your attention and work toward the Indians of North, Central and South America. You will strive mightily with them in the coming gathering, preparing them for the building of the City of Zion, a postapocalyptic utopian social order in which money will be outlawed and all people will live communally, and in harmony one with another.”

(Editor’s note: In Part II, “Cosmic Ray” enlightens us on rancher Paul Solem’s mission as a Venusian lightworker sent among the Indians of the Western Hemisphere, preparing them for the tribulations to come and the ultimate establishment of a paradisical world of Earth in the times to come later. – Lon Strickler[5]).

Venus contactee Paul Solem of Howe, Idaho, felt it was his duty to continue the mission of the Mormon prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., in bringing gospel light to the First Nations people of the Americas. According to Smith’s understanding of The Book of Mormon, “Before the great day of the Lord shall come, Jacob shall flourish in the wilderness, and the Lamanites (Native Americans) shall blossom as the rose.” See Doctrine and Covenants 49:24 (Kirtland, Ohio: LDS Church, 1835). Solem also believed that this prophecy must needs be fulfilled in order for our planet to become part of a greater galactic community. Painting by Edward Williams Clay and Henry R. Robinson (1844), source: Smithsonian Natural Museum of American History. Behring Center, Washington, D.C.

Since Paul Solem’s encounter with the Venusian angel in 1952 until 1969, there were many clandestine contacts with numerous Venusians and celestial beings from some of the other planets in our solar system and beyond. These exalted beings would direct Paul to the leaders of various Native American tribes throughout the Western states, as well as to other contactees like George Adamski, Truman Bethurum and Daniel Fry for timely advice. These ones could provide Paul with the assistance he needed in the fulfillment of his mission to bring the Venus message to the masses of the First Nations peoples. Paul would also appear at many small assemblies of Native Americans or others interested in finding out more about the visiting Star People, such as the members of UFO clubs.

For Paul, during this seventeen-year period, he tried to avoid the limelight in which the other contactees were basking in order to more fully empower Native American leaders to step up as more acceptable representatives for the extraterrestrials and their message to be faithfully transmitted to the members of their respective tribes.  The Idaho contactee felt that the Mormon Church had failed in this regard insofar as the Indians of the Americas, at least in his estimation, were not being treated on the basis of equality by the elders sent to them from the Mission Training Center at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

This was unfortunate, because when the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was established at Fayette, New York, and The Book of Mormon was first published, both of these events taking place in 1830, one of the first tasks to be carried out by that then small church’s president, Joseph Smith, Jr., was to send missionaries to the First Nations peoples in the areas surrounding upstate New York. These included the Seneca in the vicinity of Buffalo, New York, as well as the Wyandot near Sandusky, Ohio. The prophet Joseph Smith emphasized to the membership that the Native Americans, called the “Lamanites” in The Book of Mormon, were descendants of a lost tribe of Israel and that they needed to be brought into the church organization on the basis of full equality. Byron R. Merrill of the Brigham Young University Religious Studies Center in Provo, Utah, recently wrote that, “According to The Book of Mormon, Indians, or Lamanites as they are called therein, stand on a level of equality with all others in the eyes of God, who is ‘no respecter of persons.’[1] They enjoy a heritage as descendants of a chosen lineage; they are a people of promise.”[2]

The Call is Given

It was time for Paul Solem to extend his outreach. His oversoul, the Venusian spaceman calling himself “Paul 2,” communicated with Paul via mental telepathy in late June of 1969. It was around 2 o’clock on a night towards the end of that month when Paul woke up from a deep sleep. The contactee was startled because he left his radio on and it began making strange, crackling noises. This static, he would later learn, was induced by Paul 2’s generation of radio interference aboard his Venusian scout ship, which had been hovering overhead, purposely kept unlit in the darkness to avoid observation.

Paul Solem could not get back to sleep. Once out of that brief phase between sleep and being awake, known as “hypnogogic transition,” Paul was fully aware of his surroundings and heard his oversoul’s familiar voice once again in his head. On this occasion, Paul 2 was directing him to contact his friend, the Shoshone Indian Chief Don Ingop from the Fort Hall Indian Reservation, situated off State Route 91 about halfway between the Idaho cities of Pocatello and Blackfoot, approximately 13 miles due north of Pocatello on State Route 91. Today, Interstate 15 runs between Pocatello and Blackfoot, passing by the Fort Hall Indian Reservation, so there is not so much traffic along the state route as there used to be. Howe, on the other hand, is about 90 miles northwest of Pocatello and 78 miles northwest of the “Rez,” as the local Native Americans like to refer to the Ft. Hall Indian Reservation.

The Idaho contactee therefore picked up his bedside telephone and dialed Chief Ingop. After about seven rings, the chief picked up the phone, still in need of a little rest. Paul excitedly exclaimed, “Dear friend Don, the time has come. Our Space Friends have agreed to put on a UFO show for the benefit of all those scoffers out there making fun of us. What say we get together at your place as soon as possible to plan a big UFO disclosure event?”

“I’m game,” said the chief, but interjected, “Why don’t you come by tomorrow at noon. We can plan this and then drive over to the Journal in Pocatello before their offices close to put a notice in the paper.”

“OK, that’s our plan then. See you tomorrow.”
