WORN OUT LAND

was left for the young Lenape hunters and their families.
.
Trees can send roots deep for water.   The roots may grow  through cracks in rocks to find water.   But  water must be there.  If there is no water a tree dies.  
.
When a tree dies it usually does not grow again.  A dead tree is difficult for humans and most animals to eat. 
.
Grass behaves differently.  The roots go down only so far.  If there is no water. The grass goes dormant.  Grass waits until water comes from the sky.  Then grass grows again.  
.
The standing dormant grass on a treeless plain catches some of the snow that blows by,  When the snow melts in the spring there is water so the grass can grow again.
.
Dormant grass can be eaten by cows because their digestive system was developed so cows could live on grass--growing or dormant.  Humans live by eating cows.
.
So what happened,
.
when the Lenape and European livestock came ashore in a land of grass?
.
Maybe the cows lived through the winters because the cows  ate the dormant grass. Then the humans ate a few of the cows.
.
But less grass was left to catch the snow.  In the spring there may have been less snow melt.  That would have resulted in less growing grass. The cows would have eatem all they could find.  The Lenape would gather hay for the cows in winter.
.
Do you think that 
.
there was more or less
grass each year?
.
the Lenape may have
believed, each year,
  that the winds were blowing
 DRY dirt at them?
.
the priest was so harried 
that he may have believed 
he was trapped in a place 
where he was upside down?
.
Do you have any doubt
the priest may have told 
the young Lenape that they
should go to a better place?
.
What would you do
if your big brother
gave you the worn out land?
.

WOULD YOU LOOK

CAMPING

went the hunters.
.
Where?  
How far?
.
Kennebec, MA, and Kennewick, WA, have the same first syllable.  "Kenne" means "wide."  "Bec" means "brook."  "Wick," means "valley."
.
How far east and west 
did the hunters go?
.
(Google earth can tell you.)
.
Winnipeg Lake, Manitoba, and Winnimucca, NM, have the same first syllable.  "Winni" means "foul smell."  "Peg" means "bay."  "Mucca" means "lots of muck."
.
How far north and south
did the hunters go?
.
The modern paraphrase for a sleeping place for hunters is "camp."  The Norse Christian Lenape used a different idiom to mean "camp."
.
What was the Lenape idiom?
(hint: Look at the decipherment.)

SEPERATED … LIKE BREASTS

Can you pick better words to describe the loneliness of a hunter, who is hunting in the Ocean Lands and yet who thinks about home?
.
NOTE THE PADDLE.
.
The image is found in even older drawings in America and in Europe.  Some people believe they are for Thor, the Norse god of Thunder.
.
America or Europe?
Who drew the images first?
.
Who cares?
.
They are evidence of an ancient world connected by boats.
.
Note the three hair on the head.
.
"Father, Son, and Holy Ghost?"
.
The composers may have used the three marks to show who were Catholics. The concept seems valid.  In all pictographs the composers appear to be precise to show, who was who, by the "hair" on the head.

HUNTERS


The Lenape in Greenland in 1000 AD lived in large sod houses with sod roofs.
.
There were about 280 houses with fourteen (14) people in each house.  This number per house might imply that there were two families in each house.
.
How many people in a family?
.
How many people in Greenland?
.
There was one family to tend the European livestock: the goats, geese, pigs, ponies, and cattle.  The Christian Lenape had an almost religious behavior toward cows.
.
In their old religion, the Odin religion, one of the first supernatural creatures was a cow licking a frozen giant form.
.
But, by 1,000, the glaciers had receded long ago.  No Christian Lenape remembered the other glaciers or the grass that grew in the moist earth left by glaciers.  
.
Yet that was where
 they chose to live--
on grass lands near a glacier.
.
The Lenape behavior may have been engrained in their residual memory of ancient cows that grazed the grass to provide the protein for the life of their ancestors.


Can you visualize cows 
licking a glacier?
.
The second family was, perhaps, the fishermen and seal hunters. Eighty percent of the Lenape diet came from the sea.
.
But only the eldest son and his family could expect to inherit the father's share of the house.
.
The other brothers had to HUNT for a new place to live.  They were loved, but not wanted, at home.  They grew to be the

CHICAGO

STICK and BARS
.
The stick with the three cross arms is a representation of the Lenape navigation device.
.
Thongs around the head held the slit in wood, stone, or ivory about 3 inches from the eyeball.  
.
Those of you, who have finished TRIG, should know that if the eye ball is in the corner of equal triangles, then the angle from the horizon to a star in the heavens is the same as the angle between the top and bottom marks beside the slit.
.
[If you have not had TRIG yet, think of how much more useful information you will have when you finish the course.]
.
In this case the three cross bars indicate that the "warm weather"might have been in "MILD AKI" or "MILD LAND." 
If so, the composer knew Mild Aki was twenty degrees lower latitude than the his former home in the cold land they left behind.
.
Here is something to check.
.
What is the difference in latitude between Milwaukee and the Northern Settlement in Greenland?
.
How did a Lenape know THAT in 1350?
.
Was the composer trying 
to tell us that he knew 
Navigation and Geography?
Milwaukee and Greenland?
Animals in Milwaukee?
All of the Above?
.
He did it with 19 syllables
with alliterations and rhymes.
.
FLAT LAND
.
What does the flat line 
in the pictograph mean?
.
If you fly into Milwaukee from the west you travel over miles of flat land.  The flat line might indicate flat land.
.
.
.
The land is so flat that the rivers slow down and become wide marshes with reeds.  Old reeds decay.  The water smells.  Sometimes the water smells almost like skunks.  That may be why the Lenape called  the area south of Milwaukee,
.
Five centuries is a long time.  
.
Do you think officials of Chicago
know what the name means?
.
Milwaukee. Chicago.  
How old are names anyway?
.
BLIPS
.
The Blips were to remind the person reciting the stanza to name two animals. Those two blips sure do NOT look like "deer and foxes." 
.
You can see in the decipherment that the old Lenape in 1820 spoke the words "deer and buffalo."
.
Which is correct?
.
The Lenape word for Buffalo is "Sesel."  So, the blips originally meant "deer and foxes," but the time between 1350 and 1820 is nearly five centuries.  
.
Do the arithmetic. 
.
Things change. People forget.  
The old Lenape was in Indiana, not Wisconsin.  He knew the two blips meant two animals.  He guessed "deer and buffalo."
.
HART
.
In the decipherment you can see that the Lenape word for deer was "hartoo."
.
Look up HART.
.
Today there is a county and district in England named "hart"  
Is there a relationship?
.
Think about THAT.

MYTH>PARADIGM=PROFOUND DISTORTION

The 17th century English Protestants created a profoundly distorted American history.

The 18th century English Protestants turned the distorted history into a paradigm. 

The history paradigm implies there was only one American history.

Read, LET NONE DARE CALL IT LIBERTY’ to learn that the paradigm was not valid.

The Catholic Histories report an aggressive Protestant persecution in colonial America.

The LENAPE HISTORY, LENAPE LAND accurately reports Norse Catholic history of America.
________________________________

Histories become paradigms, when they are repeatedly taught.

Over half a billion people have studied 17th century American history.   Nearly all educational institutions teach only the 17th century Protestant American history.

But only about 70 people may have read the first 38 stanzas of LENAPE HISTORY, LENAPE LAND.  There is no known educational institution teaching LENAPE history.  So the LENAPE history does not become a paradigm.


The focus for 2016 will be to encourage educational Institutions to teach LENAPE HISTORY, LENAPE LAND.


LENAPE LAND MAP




Boats, not ships, came to America first-- from the north. 

Boats traveled throughout Mer Rika for thousands of years before the Lenape arrived.

What is the difference between a boat and a ship?

OARS

Boats have oars or paddles.  Sometimes a boat with oars has a sail, but oars are the expected means of propulsion.  
.
A VIKING boat, with a crew of 16 men men, may have rowed on the Viking Waterway.
If the boat is rowed by a crew, part of the crew may rest while the rest of the crew is still rowing.  Thus, a crew rowed boat can move over the water day and night.
.
Boats may operate on the ocean, but they do not usually go too many days from shore.  Boats can go up rivers.  
.
Boats are light, maneuverable, and can be taken out of the water if necessary. Boats can be used for shelter.  
.
The boats that rowed on the Vinland Waterway may have been similar to the narrow Knarr in the picture above.  When portages were expected, the mast and the boom may have rested on the yoke seen in front of the man in the bow.  
.
Mast, boom, oars, and load may have been portaged in a separate carry.  Then, if necessary, the 16 man crew may have lifted the empty boat and carried it overland.
.
Ships usually have few oars.  In olden times, they depended only on sails for propulsion.  Ships are designed to cross oceans, but they sail only into the deepest rivers.  Ships require capital, many manufacturing skills, and harbors at both ends of the voyage.
.
Ice may sink ships, while people with boats can survive until the ice melts or row along the edge of the ice. Thus the preferred method of travel in the cold north of America was by boat.
.
Ocean shores, lakes, and rivers were an efficient, renewable travel-way for America.  Boats were much more important than having wheels.
