ANSWERS to WEEK 9, WALKING to MER RICKA

THE LENAPE HISTORY OF AMERICA,
AD 1346
WALKING to Mer Rika
On the wonderful
 slippery water,
On the stone hard water,
ALL WENT!
On the great tidal sea,
Over the [puckered
 pack ice]
,
What do the four circles with spikes represent?
Largo: These could be the people traveling in groups or separate bands over the ice ( “on the stone hard water”), and the lines over their heads are leaning toward the direction of travel.


,
VANG: They must represent people. Could represent 2 x 2 separated groups.
,
Myron: The circles normally represent people.  The spikes usually represent Americans, who prayed to the Great Spirit.  In this configuration of two groups of two the LENAPE historian my have been trying to tell us more. 


GRANARIES on CAIRNS
on UNGAVA PENNINSULA
See RED triangles.

,
What we do know by the evidence of shelters on the western Ungava coast is that there was only enough shelter for 500 people who may have walked off the ice from Greenland. 
,
Those shelters may have enabled two churches of about 250 people each to recover, rest, recurperate, reoganize and then move on.  The shelters were about half-way to James Bay.  But the shelters were not a spot that encouraged settling.  The better strategy was to keep moving.
,
So the first group of two churches may have been back on the trail, when the followup group of two churches reached the shelters.
,
After a period of R & R the second group of two congregations would have moved on too.
,
What does the circle with the open top represent?
LARGO: Maybe this shows that halfway through their travel, there was starting to be partial light. 

Or is this representative of people met at midway, or a place where people rested half way through? That it is open at the top is intriguing. Were some people left behind there, either because they could not make it, or they were set there to help (or guide) the others that were headed their way? 
,
Vang: Could be other people, not members of the groups.
,
Myron: Perhaps there were other arctic people, who wanted to make the ocean crossing with a group.  These people might have found their own shelters somewhere in America.  
.
The LENAPE historian may have represented this group of people as the circle with an unknown set of beliefs.  
.
The location between the two groups of churches might have benefitted both the churches and the other people.  The other people may have been more knowledgable about the ways to survive on frozen seas.   They could have helped to keep the trail safe to use.
,
What do the two horizontal lines between Greenland (left)and America (right) represent?
.
LARGO:  I remember seeing these two horizontal lines in an earlier image from 3.16- “Those of the north agreed. Those of the east agreed. Over the waters, over the frozen sea. They went to enjoy it.” The double lines represent “the frozen sea” (Davis Strait), which had iced over at approximately 1300 AD, when the Little Ice Age began.


,
Vang: The travel route flat, must be frozen seawater. Frozen David Strait.
,
Myron: The ice over Davis Strait.
,_____________
The SCORE
[I tell you it was a big mob]
In the darkness,
all in one darkness
To Akomen, to the [west], In the darkness
They walk and walk,
 all of them
___________________
What do the five vertical lines with the circle on one mean?
.
LARG:The vertical lines might represent the groups in the “big mob” of people traversing the ice during that period.


,
Vang: Could be 5 groups of people traveled.
,
Myron: This pictograph may be a "score card" after five groups of about 800 LENAPE each have walked across Davis Strait from Greenland to America in about AD 1346-51.
.
 Four thousand LENAPE is the same number of LENAPE, who vanished from Greenland.
,
What do the three sagging curves mean?
.
LARGO: They remind me of cloud cover; darkness. Perhaps they mean there were three legs of the journey.


,
Vang: Travel time, 3 times full Moon.
,
Myron: They probably mean three moons of travel time near the winter solstice. In the Arctic the sun is often below the horizon, but the sky is not pitch black. Ninety days at ten miles per day would have enabled the group to reach James Bay, Canada.  Food may have been the primary objective.  Birds,  animals, and fish in James Bay may have been the best hope for survival.
,
On the left on the top line are five marks.  
On the right are three marks. 
What might they mean?
.
LARGO: “The Score” provides a hint. Maybe these lines represent the number of people (or complete groups) that were there at the journey’s onset, compared to those at the journeys end. Did two of five groups suffer significant losses?  Or do they show death and birth?
,
Vang: Maybe 5 people died, and 3 where born.
,
Myron: Probably they indicate thst five people died and three babies were born on the crossings.

STONE GRAVES
,
 I first time I met FEDIA, THE SHAWNEE,  was at these graves.
,
She taught me a good lesson: "What you think is SO, is NOT! “
,
,
Why would a man punch runes as an ancient
 grave marker?
.
LARGO: According to the linked “A Trip to Five Arkansas Rocks” page, “This stone Ari cut for son Nicholas” and it represents a Christian burial. Ari was commemorating the life of his son who had passed away. The people at that time would have spoken that language.
.
Myron: Because many people along the rivers were speaking Norse.
,
Check out the NORSE NAMES along the rivers.

,
A man would punch runes as a grave marker if he thought that people, who will come to the graveyard, could read runes?
,In 12th century America, most Americans spoke Norse.  Many of them could understand runes.

Why do the educational systems STILL teach nearly every student about the PRISTINE WILDERNESS until the paradigm becomes "rock hard" in nearly everybody's head?
.

LARGO:This grave marker would be left out for the same reason as that of other evidence addressed in previous weeks. In short, anti-Catholic bias, but as per our study, there would be more to that, regarding the requirement that a wilderness must be pristine in order to...
.
Ari’s son, Nickolas, would be long remembered.
.
Until the English suppressed the knowledge of the Catholics, who spoke Norse, by omitting them from the educational curriculum.

What does OHIO mean?
,
[Use the same old method: [LENAPE LAND  >
  LENAPE LAND INDEX > LINGUISTIC >
MEANING > 
follow the hints for OHIO.]

.You should have found this text.






LARGO: This time, I am starting by consulting the page I found last week: “HOW TO FIND THE MEANING OF MOST ALGONQUIN WORDS.”  I downloaded the complete Viking and the Red Man last week, and will search through it, but others might go to the dropbox, and find the same answer there.

For “Oo” I am in Volume 4 at the top of page 100. I found “OO”= he possesses  and “O”= possessive, his (or hers)

For “Hio” I found a smaller cut-out of a page HILV4039, showing “-Hilleu”= it is true

Does Ohio then mean, (out of context, in modern terms) “He’s got this”? 
If they were navigating the river, would it mean that someone was taking control of where he was heading, and something else, like “Aye, aye, Captain”?

Myron: Envision two boats on the OHIO River passing in the stiller water near the a bank.  The captain of one boat, probably rowing upstream, calls out “OO,” which means,“I have the river,” which implies that his boat has the right of way.  
[By later naval convention, that might have been the slower boat rowing up stream.]
.
The second captain responds with, “Hilleu.” which means, “It is true,”  Which means, “I see you and I am maneuvering to pass by safely. 
[A down stream boat, Which is moving faster. can maneuver around a slower boat, which the current might catch the bow and swing the boat further out into faster water and then, maybe, down stream in a fast moving river.]
,
So “OO-HIO” may have evolved into a standard greeting that meant “Hey, I am here and I intend to go straight,” followed by the other boat captain saying, “I see you, and I will maneuver to pass by.”
,
The river became the OO-HIO River.
