STANZA 9. THEY "SAVED THEMSELVES"

LENAPE HISTORY
OF AMERICA,
AD 1000 TO  1363
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.
_____________
.
Scandinavians came to RUNESTONE County to save themselves three times in 700 years. 
.
This episode is the FIRST time.  
.
Notice that the hair-do changed from the "Father, Son, and Holy Ghost to the spike.  
.
What does the spike represent?
.
By serendipitous ways, or was it divine guidance,
 the area served by the RUNESTONE Electric Service approximates the area settled by the FIRST group of Norse speaking people in North America.
. NOTE TO VIEWERS:
.
I could give you the direct link to RUNESTONE COUNTY, but my goal is to teach you HOW to FIND RUNESTONE COUNTRY WITHOUT KNOWING THE URL.

.
So get your smart phone out of your pocket or purse.  Or use any other mobile device or your computer.

.
We will find Rune Stone country starting "from scratch."

DISCUSSION
.
This site is the headquaters for the service area of the RUNESTONE 
Electric Association.
.
The Runestone is the Kensington Rune stone, which the LENAPE HISTORY mentions in Stanza 38. 
.
The area served is the Pleasant Land” sought by the Norse, who escaped the Eco-disaster of an overgrazed Greenland.
..
Today there are 
1.6 million Scandinavians living in Minnesota.  That number is more than double the number of Scandinavians in any other state.  Scandinavians make up 29% of the Minnesota population.
.
By serendipitous ways, or is it divine guidance, they cheer for a football team called the VIKINGS.
.
Whether discussing Catholics, who spoke Old Norse, VIKINGS, or just plain Norse, most Scandinavians believe Norse ancestors were in Minnesota.  
. But ancient Norse, religion, and politics are subjects rarely talked about in public.
. Friendships are better maintained if Norse in Minnesota, are not discussed in public.
.
The schools do not teach the Norse history.  
. Grandkids cannot get scholarships by insisting Columbus was NOT the first white man in America.
.
 Individuals, who thrive on winning arguments, can pile up book after book to win the NO Norse" argument by weight, if nothing else.
.
But why is the electric service called RUNESTONE?
.
Why are Minnesota people accused of creating more fake Norse artifacts than any other state? 
.
FYI, there IS a VIKING sword in Minnesota.  
.
FYI:   In Runestone CountryTap on FERGUS FALLS.  
. In Old Norse Fergus means "worthy of being a ..." 
.
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 off the south side of the south bank flows to the Mississippi and on to the Gulf of Mexico.
. The elevation of the south bank is only 1188 feet above sea level.
.  This part of Minnesota is an elevated table land.  An elevated table land is called a "Horst."  There are low hills, but no mountains.
. The Norse were following the route of the Copper Traders, who had figured out the best way to drag boats up to the south bank of the Otter Tail.  The boats could be pulled on water most of the way.  
. The Norse were NOT interested in copper.  They just wanted a place to live that had fish, birds, animals, wood, some grapes, and self-seeding grain.  The rice on the two rice rivers in Runestone country was self seeding.
.
Do you think the grandkids have learned those facts in school?
.
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?
