The ECO-DISASTER

THE 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.
______________PART B___________________
.
Scandinavians came to RUNESTONE County to save themselves three times in 700 years. 
.
This episode is the FIRST time.  
.
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.


So get your smart phone out of your pocket or purse.

DISCUSSION

This site is the service area of the RUNESTONE electric co.  The area served is the “Pleasant Land” sought by the Norse, who escaped the Eco-disaster of an overgrazed Greenland.
.
ToC on a few towns, counties, or other things.  Read or scan to get knowledge of what is there now.
.
Today there are 1.6 million Scandinavians living in Minnesota.  That number is more than double 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 that spoke Old Norse, VIKINGS, or just plain Norse, most Scandinavians believe Norse ancestors were in Minnesota like they believe in Easter.  

But ancient Norse, religion, and politics are subjects rarely talked about in public.  Friendships are better maintained if Norse in Minnesota, like the events of Easter, are not discussed in public.
.
The schools do not teach the LENAPE HISTORY.  

Grandkids cannot get scholarships by insisting Columbus was NOT the first white man in America.
 Individuals, who thrive on winning arguments, can pile on 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 artifacts than any other state? 
.
FYI, there is a VIKING sword in Minnesota.  

FYI:  ToC 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?

    What does the spike represent?

    The three spikes represent: Father, Son and Holy Ghost, the Catholic church.
    One spike represents the Great spirit, so we see a mix together.

    DISCUSSION

    In modern time from 1850 and forward, 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 art effects still to find.
    Names of places is a good indicator because they don’t change much over time.

    Do you think the grandkids have learned those facts in school?

    NO.
