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.
