[For the next hundred years the LENAPE historians appear to have made one stanza and pictograph for each year.  

That strategy  enabled future historians to keep track of the years,  so they could tell the people when big events occurred in the past.

The words “Maalan aarum” mean “engraved (maalan) years (aarum).”  

In the 19th century, the Moravain priests copied the sounds of “Maalan aarum” as “Walam Olum.”]

A discussion question is:
 “Should we refer to the LENAPE history as the “WALAM OLUM,” which many authorities have declared a “hoax,” or do we refer to the LENAPE history as “Maalan aarum,’ which is the correct name if the LENAPE historian was speaking Norse?

AD 1358

The pleasing land
 was at the south,
the abundance of rivers was toward the shore;

Akolaki shawanaki, 
kitshinaki shabiyaki.

The next Lenape historian reported where Snow Bird’s group were camped at the end of the first year of migration.

Where were they?

What is the waterway?

Why is the “abundance of Rivers” shown on top of a slope?

AD 1359
To the east was
 the Fish land,
toward the lakes
 was the buffalo land

Wapanaki namesaki,
pemapaki sisilaki.

The Lenape historian reported where Snow Bird’s group was at the end of the second year.

Where is Fish land?

What are the
 two lakes that touch?

How do we know the Historian was on the same latitude as the spot where the two lakes touch?

We have two weeks of the semester left. It is time to debate a hypothesis.

The hypothesis is:
when the ENGLISH Invaded,
the Americans were CATHOLICS,

 Nearly ALL of you have been taught the PRISTINE WILDERNESS paradigm.
So you are assumed to be against the hypohesis unless you declare otherwise.
 Your comments will be reported in the "Against" register.

Aidon Aakelas, Australia
Vang Bach, Dane, Arkansas
Sally Watkins, New Mexico.

If you want to be listed FOR the hypothesis, please respond with your name and location in the comments section.  

If you respond in favor of the hypothesis and also make a statement.  I will try to find someone in the"Against" group to debate with you.

Let us have an interesting debate.

Bob Knight: I do support the basic hypothesis for two reasons.  
1) A sufficient population existed with the opportunity.  And 
2). that a real presence existed on Vancouver Island independently recognized which easily adds to the James Bay black hills scenario.  That makes New England inevitable.  Better yet the climate made it all possible as present day arctic climate has confirmed.  What we now have is some memories and other echos of what was a major effort also duplicated by other populations in the South East possibly contemporaneous.

Add in the Templar use of the Great Circle route for two centuries before Columbus and the time and space vacuum is filled as well.

  1. Algonquin legends tell that the Greenland Norse/Leni Lenape walked across the ice to America. Here are a few brief points to support the contention that these legends are true, based on several historical documents.
    Firstly, in about 1350 Ivar Bardsen found a message left at the abandoned western settlement: "Ad Americae populose se converterunt," (We have turned to the people of America).
    Secondly, Nicholas of Lynne, in about 1360 wrote in his "Inventio Fortunata" 4,000 Norse walked into the Indrawing sea (Hudson Bay) and never returned."
    Thirdly, we have the 1354 document from King Magnus of Norway and Sweden, ordering the Paul Knutsson rescue mission. (The 1537 Gemma Frisius globe showing only the Nelson River (as only one of two rivers shown flowing into Hudson Bay) proves that Knutsson followed or joined with the Lenape migration up the Nelson River).
    Most importantly, Bishop Thorstein of Iceland wrote in 1360: "The Greenland Norse, of their own free will, have...abandoned the True Faith and gone to join with the folk of America." This rendered the Norse as heretics in the eyes of the Catholic Church. This explains why they seem to have kept their presence in America a secret.
    Finally, several early maps, including the Lok map of 1472 clearly show the name Norunbegue (a Portuguese corruption of the name Norveca, meaning "The road north," in other words: "Norway.") marking the region now known as New England."
    Reider T Shirwin, in "The Viking and the Red Man," makes a compelling case that the Algonquin languages are a dialect of Old Norse.
    The message stick history of the Lenape, the Maarlan Aruum, also charts the journey of the Lenape from Greenland through the American mid west, to the Atlantic coast.
    In 1364 Ivar Bardsen paid a Vatican Cardinal visiting Bergen the church tithes he collected for two diocese in Vinland ( America)
    European haplogroup x is found in tribes south of Hudson Bay.
    An arrowhead from America has been found in Greenland, as well as buffalo fur in Greenland garments. Soapstone cooking pots have been found in Greenland and the Canadian Ungava peninsula. The only known source for soapstone is in New York State. Butternuts found at L'Anse au Meadows in Newfoundland could only have come from south of the St. Lawrence River.
    There is also a wealth of evidence, held in Norwegian archives (including irrefutable shipping records from Bergen and Copenhagen) that trading ships journeyed to Vinland in America and back to Scandinavia.
    As for the earlier Norse, pre BC copper trading civilisation in America, this quote from Myron Paine ( serves admirably: " [Europe and the Middle East, where great bronze age civilizations thrived, had scarce natural resources of copper to mine (which was a vital ingredient. It takes nine parts copper, to one part lead, to make bronze). This copper, mined on the banks of Lake Superior, powered the European and Middle Eastern bronze age.

    Isle Royale in Lake Superior or along the Trap Range of the Upper Peninsula where approximately 500,000 tons of pure copper were mined out sometime between 1800 and 1200 B.C.
    Palden Jenkins, a historian from Glastonbury, writes, “I met the farmer who owns the land on which a megalithic stone circle is, called Merry Maidens, in far west Cornwall. While clearing hedges, he discovered an arrowhead, which was sent to the British Museum for identification. The answer returned: ‘5,000 years old; source, Michigan, USA’
