ANSWERS to LENAPE HISTORY, WEEK 12, A small MEETING.

THE LENAPE HISTORY OF AMERICA,
AD 1348
           
The Norse on the opposite side of
 that near, great and ample  mainland
___________________________________
.
What was the LENAPE historian trying to 
illustrate?
.
The LENAPE historian might have been trying to illustrate a sun on the horizon of a "near, great and ample  mainland"
.
If the historian is in James Bay, where is the other side?
.
The "other side" might have been in Lake Winnepeg and the rivers, Nelson and Red, that are in the same valley. An alternate might be that he may have been referring to Norumbega, which is now called New England.  
. Because of the cold climate, which froze all the water to the North and East most of the ime, the Norsk most likely walked (or paddled) into the LENAPE group from the west.
.
The word Norse was “Norsk” in the original words.
What is the significance of the LENAPE historian talking about the NORSK “on the other side?”
.
The LENAPE historian was from Greenland. He may have described people speaking Norsk who came from the west of Jame bay, i.e. Minnesota.
. The importance of this stanza is that the LENAPE historian of about AD 1350 incorporated "Norsk" into a self-validating stanza.
. From AD 1585 to today, English historians, except for Roger Williams, have not written that "Norsk" were on American shores.
.
_____PART B_____
.
What and when did ROGER WILLIAMS know?

 Both Roger Williams and the Dutch Governor of New York agreed about the same word.
.
SAGKIMAN

What does the name mean?


Which nationality used the name?

"Norsemen were the chiefs, because they were all sailors."
AD 1349
A few hunters
put together
 a small meeting.
.
[A small stanza—big implications.]
.
What may the triangle represent?
.
The triangle appears to represent "others."  In this case, perhaps, the local Ojibway leader.  The LENAPE held a small, but crucial meeting and INVITED the local chief to attend.
.
What does the circle represent?

The circle represents a meeting where all are equal.

What style of government is represented?

The style of government is  government by council.


Which American Government has the same style?
.
The United States government is basically a government by council.
.
The English woulld like to have us believe we have a government like their paramentary system.  We do NOT.  The founding fathers, especially Benjamin Franklin, created our government based on the American people and our Bill of Rights based on Rhode Island's charter, which was based on the examples of the American people.
.
The United States Government was based more on American concpts than English.  Most Americans spoke Norse.
1350
The properly selected judge had red hair.

What does the “fancy” hair-do mean?

The LENAPE historian may have been trying to illustrate that, although the judge believed in the Great Spirit, the judge also believed many other religious thoughts.
.
What does the triangle under the “table” mean?
. The triangle under the table" implies that the "others" became one of the LENAPE.
. Think about the situation.  You represent thousands of starvingg people, who are walking into a land where people are starving, too.  You hold a meeting.  You invite their leaders to the meeting.  Your tradition expects a Judge to make the final decision.  
.
You elect the leader of the local people to be the judge.  You have made a very wise choice.  Every body is still starving, but by working together the "children will eventually expand."
.
Why did the Historian think that we should know the judge had red hair?”
.
The reason will become more apparent in later stanzas.
.
The situation was perhaps like this:
.
The Ojibway, who spoke a dialect of Norse, were descendaned from Albans, who came from Scotland, and who mostly had curly RED HAIR.
.
The LENAPE, at that time, were mostly straight blond hair.  But those Americans, who had been in Minnesota for nearly three and a half centuries had mostly black hair and black or brown eyes.
.
I do not know what emotion, if any, was involved.  But by the time the LENAPE migrated to South Dakota, the historians were sensitive to hair color.  One leader was noted because he was "Not Black."
.
So the LENAPE Historian , who created this stanza from somewhere in or near South Dakota may have wanted us to know that, at one time, Red Haired people lived around the Christian Sea.
.
______ PART C______

The HANNO STONE

.
Did you learn what message might have been carved on the HANNO stone?
.
Did you ever know about the HANNO stone?
.
In AD 1348 The LENAPE huddling in James Bay KNEW. 
They knew how to get to the vicinity of the HANNO stone.  
.
Do you know that?
.
When we search for the HANNO stone, we find find Chinese Symbols on top of the list.  Huh?  Did the people with the PRISTINE WILDERNESS paradigm do THAT deliberately?
.
The third listing is:
.
Bourne Stone continues to baffle the experts
.
 Who would even investigate a "BOURNE" Stone?  
.
Well, I was desperate enough to try.
.Six paragraphs down I found:

"The Hanno theory, courtesy of Howard Barraclough "Barry" Fell, the late Harvard University biology professor who gained widespread notoriety in the 1970s with his theories about pre-Columbus visits to the Americas by folks from the Old World. In Fell's book, "America B.C.," Fell translated the Bourne Stone thusly: "A proclamation of annexation. Do not deface. By this Hanno takes possession."

.
NOTE:  The author with the PRISTINE WILDERNESS paradigm in his head labeled Barry Fell with the adjectives "widespread notoriety."  Fell was tried and convicted by someone with the PRISTINE WILDERNESS  paradigm in his head, but not the lifelong experience Fell had gained studying his passion in Europe and the South Pacific.  Fell was NOT tried by his peers!

Fell's conviction should be properly labeled.  Fell had violated the PRISTINE WILDERNESS paradigm.


So let us search for the HANNO stone using the masking alias, BOURNE stone.

But, even if the web site is by a “Historical Society,” something is missing.  We are NOT told what was “punched in stone.”  People with the PRISTINE WILDERNESS paradigm are more comforable that way.
.
The Wikipedia item comes closer:
.
.
The result of whoever created the modern name for the stone--Bourne--is to obscure the HANNO name and the historical importance of the artifact.  
.Why is the HANNO stone "hidden away" under the windows of an obscure museum in New England?

Perhaps people with the PRISTINE WILDERNESS paradigm in their heads do NOT want other people to find or understand an artifact that exposes the PRISTINE WILDERNESS paradigm.

I think the stone is a sure indicator that ancient boats from Spain and North Africa rowed to America hundreds of years before the English Invaded.  

.
The LENAPE in AD 1350 were following the route pioneered by millions of people people from the east side of the Atlantic.
.
But then the Wikipedia Author muddies things up by citing other researchers he implies that Fell did NOT have the correct translation.  The people with the PRISTINE WILDERNESS paradigm in their heads cannot accept Fell's conclusion.  The problem is NOT Fell's training, experience or conclusion.  The problem is the paradigm in the heads of people, who did NOT get Fell's training or had his experience.
.
The WICKED YANKEE uses his blog to get closer:
.
.
If you were on the thesis committee for a student reporting on the HANNO stone, which hypothesis would you choose to put into a schoolbook for kids?
