THE LENAPE HISTORY OF AMERICA,
After Snow Bird, the Seizer was chief,
and all were friends.
Wtenk chilili sakimanep ayamek weminilluk.
What “hair-do” does Seizer have?
Does his “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, English speaking or LENAPE, ignore the images of the LENAPE history and images maintained by small groups of Americans.
The tall ones,
the men from the pleasing land,
the men with food,
the stone men.
Chikonapi akhonapi makatapi assinapi.
The Historian lists four groups of men,
who are “friends.”
There is not enough data to enable a strong guess of
who are the men.
But the men from the pleasing land may be the ones with the Father-Son-Holy ghost hair do.
The “Tall Men” may be associated with the Norse word “Chik” which means to cast a shadow. The circle with the two horizontal lines may represent them. These may be men from the southern regions of the Mississippi, where the Chickasaw tribe still lives.
\The syllable “MA” can mean food or “evil” as the Moravian priests translated it. The circle with the plus sign may represent the people with the food.
The “Stone” men may be from Pipestone Minnesota, but we do not know which symbol they would be.
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.
