ANSWERS to WEEK 4, The ECO-DISASTER

THE LENAPE HISTORY OF AMERICA,
AD 1000 TO  1585
The ECO-DISASTER
The discouraged people were worried 
about worn out land (that) they had to abandon.
The priest said, 
 "We Lenape should go somewhere else."
.
Why was the land  “worn out?


 VANG: The land was too crowded with animals, cows, goats and hogs. The season too short to get crops (grass) to grow fast enough or resettle. Trying to feed too many people.


AIDON: Two more reasons the land was worn out could be that the Norse, when they first arrived in Greenland, cleared the woodlands, not realizing that it might take hundreds of years for them to grow back, because of the climate. 

 Once the woodlands were cleared, the land would have silted up in the allies and the topsoil would have been washed away in the uplands, greatly reducing the amount of good agricultural land available. 

This erosion effects would have been compounded by the gradually increasing cold weather, shortening the summer growing season. Finally, the Norse practice of digging up the farmland on the edge of their farms for the repair of their turf cottages (called "flogging the outfield") would have further reduced the amount of available farmland.
.
MYRON:The Norwegians brought European cattle to a fragile grassland.  The cows ate the grass.  The goats ate everything green. The hogs dug up the roots.  The land was “worn out” in a few generations.
.
Why does the pictograph show the priest upside down
 and the lines curve to the right?


VANG: The priests were the leaders and they didn’t know what to do. The strong wind at west Greenland, always coming from southeast. (Called Southeast). 
.

MYRON:The Priest dis not know what to do.  The strong winds come from "here" (on the left) and go to "there." (on the right)
DISCOURAGEMENT and again DISCOURAGEMENT
The common people
in the east stole away.
The brothers abandoned all
with great discouragement
and again discouragement.
.
Why did the common people steal away?
.
VANG: They need to find better land and they knew there were better land at west.

MYRON: Because the land was “worn out.”  
They could reach better living conditions by rowing to the to ghe grass land in the west.
.
Why did the brothers abandon all?


VANG: Too crowded.  They have to move.
.
MYRON: For the same reason.  There was nothing to be gained, except to stave to an early death, at home.
.
What does the circle under the line mean?


VANG: The circle means a man.
.
MYRON: The circle means a man, which it always had for LENAPE since Palestinian days.  Under the line is a symbol for discouraged people.
.
Why the two long tails?


VANG: To make a time line, it happens over time.
.
MYRON: They are there to remind the next historian, who will tell the story to the kids, that the syllables for “discouragement” must be said twice to make the stanza self-verifying.

This difference in answers illustrates why a discussion of evidence is often rewarding.  Vang's viewpoint may be as valid as mine, or, perhaps, the original stanza creator was thinking of both elements.
.
What do the three bent lines mean?


VANG: At the flat land there is growing wild rice and it will automatic come back. 
.
MYRON: They represent a tall reed-like plant, similar to wild rice, that seeds itself in dry weather and sprouts when the waters return.
.
[American folk lore has many stories about people, who migrated  until they found the self-seeding grain.
Minnesota has a Big and a Little RICE river.  The RICE rivers are on the north side of the Minnesota Horst.  Horst means elevated table land.  

The minimum elevation between the Red River and the Mississippi River is only 1188 feet high.

The hunters had discovered that it was possible to pull boats, on water, most of the way up the slope to the north-south divide at Fergus Falls, Minnesota.]


They saved themselves.
In a short while the weeping, weak, dirty,
Needy, (people from) the burnt land
saved themselves and rested on the other side.
.
Why the “fan” in the center?


 VANG: Make a timeline in the story telling.
.
MYRON: The "fan" is to remind the next historian, who will tell the story to the kids, to review the syllables describing needy things so he could get the stanza verification correct.
 .
What does the single spike on the right circle mean?


VANG: (The circle on the left shows) Father, Son and Holy Ghost, the Catholic church. One spike represents the Great spirit, so we see a mix together. 
.
MYRON: This spike appears to be a deliberate attempt to have the next historian, who will tell the story to the kids, to remember to tell them that the people left the "Father, Son, and Holy Spirit behind, but trusted in the GREAT SPIRIT.  

The gospel of JOHN tells us that we can pray directly to the GREAT SPIRIT.   The Gospel of John appears to have been written for, or by, the Americans.  Praying directly to the Holy Spirit is a strong American tradition.
Martin Luther changed the religious world "by faith a

 Four centuries would pass after this episode, before King James ordered a compiled bible, so he could reinforce all the passages that referred to the Divine Right of Kings. 

An American religious man may that returned from America with a version of the Gospel of John.  The Vatican knew the LENAPE were at the Minnesota Horst.
.
Where was the mound on the right?
.
MYRON: A good guess is the Wild Rice Rivers in Minnesota.  “The place names for miles around “Ulen” (O PURE) MN are Old Norse.  I put the LENAPE flag in the circle near the grave yard on the north side of ULEN Minnesota.  The VIKING Sword was found nearby.

To remind you--yet again--how to find the INDEX:

SEARCH for LENAPE LAND

ToC LENAPE HISTORY, 
LENAPE LAND
.
ToC LENAPE LEARNING INDEX
.
ToC RUNESTONRE COUNTRY
 under ARTIFACT/ RUNESTONE
____.____



RUNESTONE COUNTRY
(a.k.a. "The PLEASANT LAND")

Scandinavians came to  
RUNESTONE COUNTY
to save themselves THREE times in 700 years.
.
This episode is the first time, which happened about AD 1150.   

By serendipitous ways (Or was it divine guidance?) the area served by the RUNESTONE Electric approximates the area settled by the first LENAPE, who were Catholics, wo spoke Old Norse.

VANG: In modern time from 1850 and forward, (the THIRD episode)had around 1.6 million Scandinavians emigrated to US. Especial Norwegians and Swedes preferred Minnesota and Wisconsin, one of the reasons for that, the oldest son inherited the farm, and got the best girl in town, so the hunting was a place where there was space for farming, and reason for Minnesota, it looked like home.

But also Native Canadians from tribes in that area have those’d to settle in Minnesota, and all the findings of Rune stones, sword and there are probably lot of artifacts still to find. Names of places is a good indicator because they don’t change much over time.

MYRON: During the first episoded, “Ulen” may have had the first Catholic congregation in North America.  The grove near ULEN, which seems to have a man modified circular water course, might have been a deliberate attempt by the Greenlander Lenape to make a safe camp ground with water accessible throughout  the camp.

VIKING SWORD was found near by.  

[VIKING SWORDS are not compatible with the PRISTINE WILDERNESS paradigm the English wanted to teach.

(By serendipitous ways (Or was it divine guidance?) the people on the Minnesota Horst cheer for a football team called the VIKINGS.)  

Whether Catholics, who spoke Norse, or VIKINGS, or just plain Norse, most Scandinavians believe that the Norse were in North America. 
.
But Norse in North America is subject rarely mentioned in public.
.
The schools do not teach the LENAPE HISTORY.  Grandkids cannot get scholarships by knowing the self-verifying stanzas by memory.

 Contrary individuals, who thrive on winning arguments, can pile on book after book to win the Norse--No Norse argument by weight, if nothing else.
..
But why is the electric service area called RUNESTONE COUNRY? 

FYI:  ToC on FERGUS FALLS in RUNESTONE COUNTRY.  This town lies on the North-South continental divide.  The water on the north side of the south bank of the Otter tail River flows to HUDSON BAY. 

The water on the south side of the south bank flows to the Mississippi and on to the Gulf of Mexico.  A boat can be pulled up river to reach the elevation of 1188 feet.  Then the voyage to the Gulf of Mexico becomes easier.
.
Do you think the grandkids have learned that fact in school?

VANG: NO!
.
MYRON: I KNOW they have NOT been taught this very important HISTORY.! "
.
Do you think the grandkids have been asked to estimate how many boats have been lifted over that bank in the past 1,000 years?
.
MYRON: I am kidding, of course. 

The grandkids would have to do some research, some mathematics, and decided if a few hypotheses are valid like:

The Pristine Wilderness paradigm taught by American schools proves that no Norse were in Minnesota or

ONE Norse artifact found on the MinnesotaHorst proves that the Pristine Eilderness paradigm is not valid,

When the history curriculum was written by the 17th century English,  they clearly wanted us to believe that there was no one in the PRISTINE Wilderness of Ameroca before Columbus. 

In RUNESTONE COUNTRY nformation about these Norse artifacts and the LENAPE History has been suppressed even from the Scandinavians. 

  So, they cannot argue their cause because the information they need to present a compelling case has been suppressed by the academic and media people. 

Yet RUNSTONE COUNTY is the area of the highest percentage of Scandinavians in North America.  

If, we could supply the professors, the media, and even the residual LENAPE tribes with information, which is not suppressed, then we might have a nucleus of Scandinavians, who know—and believe—that Scandinavians came to Minnesota three times in 700 years to save themselves.  They might be able to present a compelling case--IF they had the suppressed information.
Then, despite what the 17th century English wanted to suppress, the RUNESTONE COUNTRY Scandinavians might save their grandkids,  AGAIN!

                 ______PART C________

After rowing away from Greenland and then through the Christian Sea (a.k.a. Hudson Bay), the common people “came to the surface” in Wyoming, Dakotas, or Minnesota.
.
What do those three names mean in the LENAPE (a.k.a. Algonquin) language?













Wyoming means, "Grass Place

[This name may have originally applied from Minnesota to Wyoming.  This grassland may be the original "Vinland."  The Scandinavians have been trying to tell the world for centuries that "VIN" means "GRASS."

Were the English stupid or did they prefer to write that "Vin" meant "wine" so foolish explorers would go to search for berries rather than grass land?  Was the misdirection part of suppression by omission?]

 DAKOTA means "COLD (I grew up in South Dakota,  It is still COLD.).




.
In LENAPE, "Minni" means small or even smaller.
 SIKA = flow out of a river that is almost empty.
.
Minne SIKA (sota) = small flow out of a river that is almost empty.  Because much of central Minnesota is a HORST, which means an elevated tableland, the country side has many river channels with minimum flow out of a channel that is almost empty.  There is no large watershed.
.
The Minnesota State information says the name means "Cloudy water" or "Sky-tinted water." Ponds along a river, which is almost empty, might reflect the sky, so the meanings appear to be compatible.
