Indigo Children or (star seeds) is a pseudo-scientific claim that some people have unique "auras" or "abilities" that regular people don't posses naturally. the conspiracy sometimes hints at the existence of a bloodline that is tied to extra-terrestrial beings.


The term "indigo children" originated with parapsychologist and self-described psychic Nancy Ann Tappe, who developed the concept in the 1970s. In 1982 Tappe published a comb-bound which she expanded and republished in paperback in 1986 as Understanding Your Life Thru Color. In these works Tappe introduced the concept of "life colors", defined in Understanding Your Life Thru Color as "the single color of the aura that remains constant in most people from the cradle to the grave". The concept of "life colors" was popularized nationally by Tappe's student Barbara Bowers, who published What Color Is Your Aura?: Personality Spectrum's for Understanding and Growth in 1989, and by Bowers' student Pamala Oslie, who published Life Colors: What the Colors in Your Aura Reveal in 1991.

Tappe stated that during the late 1960s and early 1970s she began noticing that many children were being born with indigo auras (or, in her terminology, with indigo as their "life color"). The idea was later popularized by the 1998 book The Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived, written by husband and wife self-help lecturers Lee Carroll and Jan Tober.

In Popular Culture[edit]

In 2002, the first international conference on indigo children was held in Hawaii, drawing 600 attendees, and there have been subsequent conferences in Florida, Oregon, and elsewhere. Several films have been produced on the subject, including two films by New Age writer James Twyman: a 2003 feature film Indigo and a 2006 documentary The Indigo Evolution.
