WEEK 16, The PLEASANT LAND

[For the next hundred years the LENAPE historianS appear to have made one stanza and pictograph for each year.  That tactic enabled future historians to keep track of the years, when big evenrs occurred.

The words “Maalan aarum” mean “engraved (maalan) years (aarum).”  In the 19th century, the Moravain priests copied the sounds of “Maalan aarum” as “Walam Olum.”]

A discussion question is “Do we refer to the LENAPE history as the “WALAM OLUM,” which many authoritives have declared a “hoax,” or do we refer to the LENAPE history as “Maalan aarum,’ which is the correct name if the LENAPE historian was speaking Norse?

AD 1358

ANSWERS to WEEK 15, SCATTERING

THE LENAPE HISTORY OF AMERICA,
AD 1355

After him, Snow Bird was chief.
He spoke of the south.

Wtenk nekama sakimanep chilili shawaniluen.
 ___________________________________
Which of the original sounds might describe “Snowbird.”

“Chilili shawaniluen,” with “Chilili” being the bird song and  “shawaniluen’ being the “South-something.”

Where do Snow Birds spend the winter?

Snowbirds spend the winter in the warmer climates
 in the south.

What type of “HAIR DO”  does this Snow Bird have?

The HAIR DO appears to indicate the GREAT SPIRIT,
but with more variations of belief.   Perhaps those variations developed during the visits with people in the south.

What is the pictograph trying to tell us?

Maybe  that the hunters who went south in winter returned to be the leaders of the LENAPE  during the summer.


AD 1356

That our fathers should possess it
by scattering abroad.

Wokenapi nitaton wullaton apakchikton.

____________________________________________
What HAIR DOs do the heads wear?

The heads are wearing the “Father, Son,
and Holy Ghost HAIR Dos.

What might those HAIR Dos mean?

Those HAIR Dos might mean that the LENAPE had
resumed Catholic beliefs and maybe some traditions.

Why would thousands of LENAPE have to divide?
Why couldn’t they push through the people south of them?

The cold of the Little Ice Age caused misery for everyone, including the Christian tribes to the south.  Moving thousands of LENAPE into that area might have caused stavation for all.  Certainly there would have been violent resistance to protect hunting areas.


AD 1537

Snow Bird went south,
White Beaver went east.

Shawaniwaen chilili, wapaniwaen tamakwi.

__________________________________
Where, exactly, did Snow Bird’s group go?
The route of SNOWBIRD'S GROUP of LENAPE
Snowbird may have lea the LENAPE to the mouth of the Nelson River, up (south) the Nelson River, south across Lake Winnepeg, up (south) the Red River , then up the Red River to Big Stone Lake and a settlement on the Whitestone River.

What might White Beaver mean?

White Beaver may have been a leader of the Scandinavians, who came to rescue the LENAPE, but stayed to help in the migration.

Where, exactly, did White Beaver’s group go?


WHITE BEAVER led his group of LENAPE to
Norumbega (Norway in America) 
Up (east) the Eastmain River.  south to the Saguenay River, south into the St. Lawrence Sea Way, south-west to Lake Champlain, south to the cross over to the Connecticut river and settlement in Norumbegaa (Norway aka New England.)

How do we know; exactly,  where the groups went?

Snow Bird's route is part of the LENAPE History.   We shall  see where the history was recorded next week.

 White Beaver’s route is detailed in the CHILDREN of the MORNING LIGHT book by Medicine Story.


The route of WHITE BEAVER'S group is the last segment of the migration of the Wapamnaog as described in this book, the Children of the Morning Light.  "Wapamnaog means "White folks."
The Wapamnaog were the people the Pilgrims met.  The Pilgrims recorded in their journals that they saw "crosses and other antiques," which were symbols of Catholics.  The Pilgrims also knew the Wapamnaog spoke Norse.

The Pilgrims started a vicious religious war called King Phillips war to eliminate the Wapamnaog and other Catholic tribes, who spoke Norse.

Then the Pilgrims and the Puritans suppressed all information that mentioned "Norse," "Catholics" and "LENAPE."  The suppression was institutionalised a century later (AD 1776) when the Puritan Sunday School classes were used as the model for the United States schools.

The resulting paradigms that:
there were NO Norse in North America,
there were  NO Catholics in North America, and there were NO Lenape in New England have created a dark hole in American history.

Even today most mentions of Norse, Catholics, and Lenape are suppressed.

The Lanse Aux Meadow site in Newfoundland is the major exception.  But the site enables the English in Canada to say "We DO have a site about the Norse, but the Norse made NO impact on North America."
Thousands of artifacts and the Norse language are suppressed by the "NO impact" phrase.  Those items are not seen by school kids because the suppression contines after four centuries.
An educator Francis Jennings, who wrote in his book, Invasion of America, that "The English did not find savages, they made them," COULD NOT find employment at an university.


Part C


The destination that Snowbird advocated would have looked like this on a google map.

OGEMA LAND
What does Ogema (or Ogima) mean?

"Honored High Man."

“Look at a magnified segment of the Eastern Omega’s Land.

MINNESOTA OGEMA REGION
Do you think that this village may have been a campground for thousands of the Greenland Catholics, who spoke Old Norse?

The many Norse place names surrounding Ulen may indicate that the LENAPE lived in the area for an extended period of time.

The “Dal” of the village called “HITTEDAL” means “valley” (Like “Kanal Dal,” which became “Canada.”)

What does “Hitte” mean? [Hint: look for “hetta”.]

"Hetta" means, "It might be called- .  As in "It might be called a valley"  Hittedal is on the edge of what might be called a valley.  This correlation may be even more evidence of Norse Place names.

ANSWERS to WEEK 14, KEEPING GUARD


AD 1353,



After Beautiful Head,
White Owl was chief at
Abundance of Rivers.

Why does the narrative return to the “Abundance of Rivers?”

Because the boat wreck on the rocks caused a retreat to the place where food in the form of geese and whales still existed.  The wreck demonstrated that the “short cut” to Minnesota was too risky to attempt again.

Why does the “Father, Son, and Holy Ghost” hair-do, with perhaps a strong Holy Ghost component return to the pictograph?

The “Bishop” was, perhaps, a man, who was a stronger religious person. He may have come from the east with the rescue team.  Yet he was depending on the Great Spirit to guide himself and the LENAPE through an apparent dismal future of being trapped at the "Abundance of Rivers. “

The word “chief” was the translation of the Monrovian priests for the sound “Sakimanep” they recorded.  “Sakimanep” means “Judge.”  Sometimes “Sakimanep” appears to mean “an activity to recall the year by.”

What activity might White Owl have done to deserve mention in the yearly stanza and pictograph?

White Owl may have performed his important role as pastor of the discouraged LENAPE, who needed a sense of direction out of what may have appeared to be a hopeless situation.  He may have overcome helplessness and created hope.


_____Part C_____

What does WAPA mean?

You should have found this page.

Wap means "White" 
Wapan means "easterly"

Perhaps the LENAPE historian chose a word that meant two things.  White Owl may have come from the east with the Scandinavian rescue team.

Do you think “go-khos” sounds like an owl?

As a boy on the farm, I heard “go-khos” sounds.  The owls in the area of the LENAPE six centuries ago may have made slightly different sounds than the owls in our tree strip, so I a willing to accept “go-khos” as the sound an owl made.

Do you think the name is for a bird?

No, I think the LENAPE Historian chose a bird that came closest to representing the man.  “Big Bird” was the Bishop at the start of the migration.  “White Owl” seems like a natural choice of a bird for the next Bishop.

Or do you think the name describes a man with the attributes of the bird?

Yes,

If so, what are some attributes the man might have had?

He may have been vigilant and a steady influence on the LENAPE.  An Owl will fly quietly and usually swiftly strike his prey.  The man may have been one, who succeeded in leading hunters to find food.
AD 1354


Then Keeping Guard was the sachem.

Why has “Keeping guard” become an important activity?

The Little Ice Age was still growing colder.  Food in the form of the geese and Whales was becoming less.  The people surrounding the LENAPE were running out of food also.  Those people began to take food from LENAPE.  The food supply had to be guarded.

What is on the back of the man in the pictograph?

The man has a tomahawk in his hand.  I think the LENAPE Historian drew a shield on the back of the guard to show that the guard is dressed to fight if necessary, but he is not pro-actively seeking combat.

The LENAPE appear to be depending on the guards to discourage others from taking their food, but the LENAPE were not actively fighting to take food that others had.

What does the “Great Spirit” hair-do imply?

The implications are that a belief in the Great Spirit had become more sustaining than the “Father-Son-Holy Ghost.” Maybe because there were no “Father-Son-Holy Ghost institutions to sustain the Catholic beliefs. 

The letter of First John may have encouraged direct communication with God, the Great Spirit.  The LENAPE were keeping their faith alive by using the direct communications to the Great Spirit.  Most LENAPE had “freedom of religion.”
The American reformation was created by climate, although Catholic traditions would endure to become visible in the form of churches. temples, crosses, and "other antiques".

Three centuries later in AD 1657, the English Protestants did NOT have “freedom of religion.”  They were obligated to believe what the Preacher of their church preached.  They were punished if they did not conform.

The irony of the Protestant invasion of America is that the Protestants destroyed the major LENAPE churches and temples to the Mother of Jesus, which were visible indications of Catholics.

But then the Protestants called the direct worship of the Great Spirit a “savage” practice.

Yet “freedom or religion” prevailed, enabling the Catholic Church to re-establish Catholic congregations after the constitution was passed.
_______________Part B____________________
The major Copper Haulers route was south, out of the Christian Sea, up the Nelson River and across Lake Winnipeg.  At the south end of Lake Winnipeg the route went three ways: To Thunder Bay, north of Lake Superior, south, going up the Red River, and west toward Minot, ND then south to reach the northern bend of the Missouri.

If Norse had followed the Copper Route into North America, there should have been whetstones found along the routes.

Were there any whetstones found in the Dakotas?

The answer is, “None that we know about.”  

But South Dakota does have two Whetstone waterways.


The overview shows where they are.  The Whetstone River near Big Stone Lake (north east corner) would have been a place where Norse may have lived for extended periods.  It is a site with woods, water, a large body of water near-by would have been the watering place for herds of buffalo.


In the NORSE/LENAPE language Sissiton SD means "Buffalo town."



The Whetstone Creek near Geddes, SD, has similar terrain adjacent to a major water source, which may have been a buffalo watering place.

Both Whetstone areas may have been the location of Norse people, who had “discreetly slipped away” and populated eastern North America during the two hundred years before the Little Ice Age.

Compare the 200 year span to the 240 years the United States has existed.  There was adequate timwWe for the Norse to populate eastern Norse America before the LENAPE historian created a history.  The Whetstone River and Creek evidence shows that the did.

When “No one turned back,” the LENAPE may have known their relatives were living in better conditions in areas to the west.

Return to the overview.  

Notice "Minnihaha, which means "Little Waterfall."  There is a little waterfall at Sioux Falls" SD.  The LENAPE named the place in the 14th century.  The Sioux moved into the area later.
Sioux Falls is located in Minnihaha county and has a waterfall park named "Minnihaha."

Notice also, "Crow Creek" a site of a massacre of 486 people sometime between AD 1300 and 1400.  

Also the "Mound of the Little People," which may be associated with a Chinese boat on the Mississippi-Missouri about AD 1425.

These events may be related to episodes in the LENAPE history that we will NOT discuss in this 18 week semester.

The paradigms to remember are:

1.  The copper route was a rowboat (or canoe) route entering eastern North America via the Christian Sea (a.k.a. Hudson Bay) for over 3550 years.  Lake Winnipeg was a major outlet into Minnesota and Dakota.

2. The Norse came into America via the copper route by AD 800.  The Norse objective was to reach and live in the Mississippi Basin.  [The Mississippi Culture.]

3.  The LENAPE were Greenland Christians, who followed the Norse into America to escape the Little Ice Age.  They were entering Norse cultures already in place in Minnesota and Dakotas.

WEEK 14, Part C, WHITE OWL



White Owl at the Abundance of Rivers.

Was the person shown in the pictograph really called “White owl?”

 Perhaps the original Historian meant something else.

Let us check.

The original sounds recorded by the Moravian priests in AD 1831 were “wapagokhos.”

Look up “Wapa” in the VIKING and the REDMAN.  [Hint, the best page is in Vol. 5, general vocabulary.]

What does WAPA mean?

The LENAPE named birds and animals by the sounds they made.

Do you think “go-khos” sounds like an owl?

Do you think the name is for a bird?

Or do you think the name describes a man with the attributes of the bird.  If so, what are some attributes the man might have had?

ANSWERS to LENAPE HISTORY, WEEK 13,NO ONE TURNED BACK

THE LENAPE HISTORY OF AMERICA,
AD 1351

King Magnus appointed Paul Knutson to captain a rescue mission, which 
would row beyond Greenland to recover the Christians that abandoned Greenland

           
No one went from
Here to there
No DESERTER
 went off yonder
        

What do the curved lines on the top of the circle represent?

They represent feathers.  In the time of the Little Ice Age, Norwegian men wore feathers on their hats and helmets to signify that they were Christians.

[This is a topic that should have more research.  Early sketches and photos show American men with two or three feathers held in place by a headband.  The American use of feather may have been inspired by the feathers the Norse men wore.]

What do the two mounds and lines from each mound to the circle represent.

The mounds represent Norway on the left (from there) and America on the right (to here).  The two lines between the right leg and the “ground” may represent Iceland and Greenland.

King Magnus' letter is Online 

Note:  There is a three year difference between the American and Norway records.  This difference might make a good thesis project.  

We will continue to follow the American timeline, because other known events fit that time line better.

What does the stanza say about the  LAENAPE answer ?

No one turned back
 from here to there.

______PART B_______

The word "ORINDA" appeared in southern Alabama, in New York, and in California.

WHAT DOES ORINDA MEAN?

I suggest you divide the word into
“O”  “RIN (REN)” “DA

"OO" shows possession of noun.  (I see it.)
REN = PURE
DA = Exclamation, Look!

ORINDA = I have (see) purity, Look!
1352  
        
      Most, but not all, survived a boat wreck on the rocks.,

What does the triangle with a line near the top represent?

The LENAPE historian used the triangle to represent a selection of a few out of a population.  “Most. (at the bottom of the triangle) but not all (empty space at the top)

What does the circle with curved lines below the line represent?

The head with the feathers (Norwegian Prince Paul Knudson) died.

Do we have any evidence of the “wreck on the rocks?”

We DO have the evidence of the boat wreck near Lake Nipigon, Ca, in about AD 1352.   Look at this link: BEARDMORE

Why are school kids taught that Columbus was the first person from the east side of the Atlantic to discover America?

 One reason may be that the 17th century English wanted to cover up their massacres of Catholics, who spoke Norse.  Those Catholics called themselves LENAPE.

Those Englishmen chose to advocate that Columbus found a ‘PRISTINE WILDERNESS.”  Thus, according to the English, there could NOT be Catholics, who spoke Old Norse in America.

  Censorship of the information printed by the only two printing presses in America was a simple task.  “Catholic,” “Norse,” and “LENAPE” were omitted in NEW ENLAND and JAMESTOWN.  

That censorship prevailed a century later, when the Sunday School curriculum became the model for the United States school system.

The “LENAPE” name did survive in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, primarily because the LENAPE went to church often and European fundamentalist settlers out numbered the English in the area.  The fundamentalist desire for freedom of religion for everybody, even Catholics, enabled the LENAPE to survive.


The LENAPE standard of Christian conduct is now embodied in the Boy Scouts honor society, the Order of the Arrow.


_____COMMENTS_____


You have encountered links to two objects from about 685 years ago, which are saved in national history achives or museums.  Those artifacts support the concise, coherent, and compelling LENAPE history.

 There is sufficient evidence to demonstrate that the 17th century English knew they were surrounded by Catholics, who spoke Norse.  But the history taught to your Grandkids may ignore all that.

The English committed a series of massacres and prolonged oppressive campaigns in an attempt to rid America of Catholics, who spoke Norse. 

The English advocated the PRISTINE WILDERNESS paradigm, COLUMBUS, the BERING STRAIT hypothesis, the "ALGONGUIN" language,  and the DELAWARE tribal name to profoundly distort 17th century American history.

The existing difficulty for modern reseachers to understand the American situation before AD 1600 is caused by the suppression by omission imposed by the 17th century English.

But archeologists, linguists, and historians are not aware that the omission has occurred.  They continue to resolve the American past through the PRISTINE WILDERNESS paradigm.  They teach what they have been taught.  They ignore researchers, who write that the history does not account for the artifacts.  They ignore conflicting evidence.

Columbus has been enshrined as a national holiday, by names, and by statues defended by Italian people, whose ancestors were not in America in AD 1600,  Columbus is an effective "blind" to discourage academic people from looking into the past.

Scientists continue to search for the evidence to "prove" the BERING STRAIT paradigm, when four different blood and DNA factors show the Americans came from the east side of the Atlantic.

They continue to "help" tribes resolve the ALGONGUIN language.  [Despite the conclusion of Reider T. Sherwin, some tribal linguists, begin their language lessons with a declaration that "ALGONGUIN" is NOT Norse, when, in fact, they are teaching Norse words.]

"DELAWARE" is a state name.  The English applied the NAME DELAWARE to many LENAPE tribes to cover up the "LEN = PURE" syllable, which was well known on both sides of the Atlantic. Lord De La WARR III's men killed men and raped women along 40 miles of the James River and throughout the Delaware Peninsula.  But the most damage is that the name covers people and territory that should be known for being PURE, as in LENAPE, Catholics, who spoke Norse.

The worst part of this discussion if that I do not know how to "rattle the cages" of the academics, who should be researching LENAPE and ENGLISH versions of history.

DO YOU?
