  1. As far as I can tell, (referring to the Viking Waterway) Snow Bird’s group most likely rowed up the Nelson River, across Lake Winnipeg, up the Red and Buffalo Rivers, past Moorehead and Stinking Lake, then wintered at Stakke Lake. Next spring they navigated up the Ottertail River and over the great divide at Fergus Falls, eventually settling around Sioux Falls on the Big Sioux River. (We know they were at Kensington, Minnesota in 1362, because the Kensington Runestone incident is recorded in the Maalan Aruum).
    Drought and the invasive Wolf Pack tribe then led them to seek shelter at Niagara and Mystery caves in Minnesota.
    White Beaver went east, perhaps up the Nottoway River, across Lake Matagami up the Bell River, then over the range into the St. Lawrence waterway, settling and exploring throughout the Great Lakes region and ending ending up mainly settling in New England, Virginia and West Virginia. These regions were named “Norumbegue” on early maps, a corruption of Norveca “The Road North:”(Meaning Norway), Further south the Lenape’s Shawnee kin (whom had left Greenland hundreds of years before) settled.
