WEEK 17, ALL WERE FRIENDS

THE LENAPE HISTORY OF AMERICA,
AD 1360

After Snow Bird,
the Seizer was chief,
and all were friends.

What “hair-do” does Seizer have?
.
Does his pictograhp “body Language” fit with the Historian’s phrase that 
“All were Friends?
.
NOTE; The prominent long straight nose and the  lines for the eyes and mouth.  The same face was carved on the posts guarding the  Big House at the last LENAPE gathering in Oklahoma in AD 1928.
.
The time span between the LENAPE history stanza and the last BIG House is 558 years.  
.
Can simple images endure to define a people for over five centuries?  
.
Or is the face a common occurrence anywhere at any time?
.
Why do historians ignore the images maintained by small groups of Americans.

The Historian lists four groups of men,
who are “friends.”
.
The “Tall Men” may be associated with the Norse word “Chik” which means to cast a shadow.  The circle with the two vertical lines may represent them.  These may be men from the southern regions of the Mississippi, where the Chickasaw tribe still lives.

The Tall Men had apparently forgotten one of the Father-Son-Holy Spiritt concepts.  We do not know which one is missing. 
.
Fhe "men from the pleasing land" may be represented by the circle with the horizonal lines.
.
\The syllable “MA” can mean food.   The circle with the plus sign may represent the people with the food.  Omaha, NB, means "Look, food!"
.
The “Stone” men may be from Pipestone Minnesota, where stone pipes and other useful artifacts were made.  The blank circle may represent stone.  The syllable "assin" means "stone."
.
What are your thoughts about the symbols?
.
The LENAPE Historian took two stanzas to tell us that the LENAPE had made friends with most of the people in the Red River and  Whetstone River valleys.  The settlement of 1housands of LENAPE might have taken two years or more.
.
Every thing was getting better.  All the surrounding people were friendly.
