ANSWERS to WEEK 14, KEEPING GUARD


AD 1353,

After Beautiful Head,
White Owl was chief at
Abundance of Rivers.
.
Why does the narrative return to the “Abundance of Rivers?”
.
VANG: After the wreak they know that there were food, geese and whales and the “short cut” was to risky. 

MYRON: Because the boat wreck on the rocks caused a retreat to the place where food in the form of geese and whales still existed.  The wreck demonstrated that the “short cut” to Minnesota was too risky to attempt again.
.
Why does the “Father, Son, and Holy Ghost” hair-do, with perhaps a strong Holy Ghost component return to the pictograph?
.
VANG: There most have been a stronger religious person then a Priest, a Bishop. 

MYRON: The “Bishop” was, perhaps, a man, who was a stronger religious person. He may have come from the east with the rescue team.  Yet he was depending on the Great Spirit to guide himself and the LENAPE through an apparent dismal future of being trapped at the "Abundance of Rivers. “
.
The word “chief” was the translation of the Monrovian priests for the sound “Sakimanep” they recorded.  “Sakimanep” means “Judge.”  Sometimes “Sakimanep” appears to mean “an activity to recall the year by.”
.
What activity might White Owl have done to deserve mention in the yearly stanza and pictograph?
.
AIDON: White Owl may have had the ability to silently and stealthily move like an owl in the night, intercepting, ambushing and killing raiding parties from the Red Man, who might have objected to those happy go lucky Lenape (Vikings by another name) invading their lands and stealing their hunting grounds.

VANG: He must have lead them out of a hopeless situation.

MYRON: White Owl may have performed his important role as pastor of the discouraged LENAPE, who needed a sense of direction out of what may have appeared to be a hopeless situation.  He may have overcome helplessness and created hope.

The pictograph implies he was a "bird" spreading his wings over the flock.  A bird had been used to symbolize a bishop before.
.
AD 1354
Then Keeping Guard was the sachem.
.
Why has “Keeping guard” become an important activity?
.
VANG: The food supply ran out when it was getting colder so the have to guard the food supply they had left.

MYRON: The Little Ice Age was still growing colder.  Food in the form of the geese and Whales was becoming less.  The people surrounding the LENAPE were running out of food also.  Those people began to take food from LENAPE.  The food supply had to be guarded.
.
What is on the back of the man in the pictograph?
.
VANG: He has a tomahawk, ready to fight if necessary.

MYRON: The man has a tomahawk in his hand.  I think the LENAPE Historian drew a shield on the back of the guard to show that the guard is dressed to fight if necessary, but he is not pro-actively seeking combat.
.
The LENAPE appear to be depending on the guards to discourage others from taking their food, but the LENAPE were not actively fighting to take food that others had.
.
What does the “Great Spirit” hair-do imply?
.
VANG: The belief in the Great Spirit.

MYRON: The implications are that a belief in the Great Spirit had become more sustaining than the “Father-Son-Holy Ghost.” Maybe because there were no “Father-Son-Holy Ghost institutions to sustain the Catholic beliefs. 
.
The letter of First John may have encouraged direct communication with God, the Great Spirit.  The LENAPE were keeping their faith alive by using the direct communications to the Great Spirit.  Most LENAPE had “freedom of religion.”
The American reformation was created by climate, although Catholic traditions would endure to become visible in the form of churches. temples, crosses, and "other antiques".
.
Three centuries later in AD 1657, the English Protestants did NOT have “freedom of religion.”  They were obligated to believe what the Preacher of their church preached.  They were punished if they did not conform.
.
The irony of the Protestant invasion of America is that the Protestants destroyed the major LENAPE churches and temples to the Mother of Jesus, which were visible indications of Catholics.
.
But then the Protestants called the direct worship of the Great Spirit a “savage” practice.
..
Yet “freedom or religion” prevailed, enabling the Catholic Church to re-establish Catholic congregations after the Bill of Rights attached to the constitution was passed.

The major Copper Haulers route was south, out of the Christian Sea, up the Nelson River and across Lake Winnipeg.  At the south end of Lake Winnipeg the route went three ways: To Thunder Bay, north of Lake Superior, south, going up the Red River, and west toward Minot, ND then south to reach the northern bend of the Missouri.
.
If Norse had followed the Copper Route into North America, there should have been whetstones found along the routes.
.
Were there any whetstones found in the Dakotas?
.
The answer is, “None that we know about.”  
.
But South Dakota does have two Whetstone waterways.
The overview shows where they are.  The Whetstone River near Big Stone Lake (north east corner) would have been a place where Norse may have lived for extended periods.  It is a site with woods, water, a large body of water near-by would have been the watering place for herds of buffalo.
In the NORSE=LENAPE language Sissiton SD means "Buffalo town."
.
The Whetstone Creek near Geddes, SD, has similar terrain adjacent to a major water source, which may have been a buffalo watering place.
Both Whetstone areas may have been the location of Norse people, who had “discreetly slipped away” and populated eastern North America during the two hundred years before the Little Ice Age.
.
Compare the 200 year span to the 240 years the United States has existed.  There was adequate time for the Norse to populate eastern Norse America before the LENAPE historian created a history.  The Whetstone River and Creek evidence shows that they did.
.
When “No one turned back,” the LENAPE may have known their relatives were living in better conditions in areas to the west.
. Return to the overview.  
. Notice "Minnehaha, which means "Little Waterfall."  There is a little waterfall at Sioux Falls" SD.  The LENAPE named the place in the 14th century.  The Sioux moved into the area later.
Sioux Falls is located in Minnehaha county and has a park, which has a waterfall named "Minnehaha."
.
Notice also, "Crow Creek" a site of a massacre of 486 people sometime between AD 1300 and 1400.  
.
Also the "Mound of the Little People," which may be associated with a Chinese boat on the Mississippi-Missouri about AD 1425.
.
These last two events may be related to a coming episode in the LENAPE history.
.
The paradigms to remember are:
.
1.  The copper route was a rowboat (or canoe) route entering eastern North America via the Christian Sea (a.k.a. Hudson Bay) for over 3550 years.  Lake Winnipeg was a major outlet into Minnesota and Dakota.
.
2. The Norse paddlled into America via the copper route by AD 800.  The Norse objective was to reach and live in the Mississippi Basin.  [The Norse called the land, "The Pleasant Land.  The archaeologists call the era, "The Mississippi Culture."]
.
3.  The LENAPE were Greenland Catholics, who followed the Norse into America to escape the lowering temperatures of the Little Ice Age.  They were entering Norse  Christian cultures already in place in Minnesota, the Dakotas, and throughout the Mississippi basin.
.
