The history tells about 585 years of LENAPE history before the English Invasion.

The history tells of a 4,000 mile, 150 year migration from Greenland to the Atlantic Coast via western Minnesota.

The historical facts are in the LENAPE HISTORY.

Tell all the kids to read a VALID American story.

We MUST rebut this Post with valid evidence.  Otherwise we will be left with another faulty interpretation of the LENAPE History.

Viewers, who do not take the time to look at the evidence, may conclude that the LAST VIKING, VIKING VISITORS to NORTH AMERICA, and LENAPE LAND are all of the same quality—suspicious  and not worth believing or reading carefully.

This is another case of a bad article spoiling the accumulated understanding of the LENAPE history.

The LAST VIKING states:

that we do NOT know where the people of Greenland went.

         That statement is NOT valid.  We have the LENAPE HISTORY of their migration in America until AD 1585.

that the Norse reached the Pacific Coast via the free [melted ice] water in the Arctic passage.

The LENAPE history said that they “went everywhere”  Lenape words like “Kennewick" and "Yakama" in Washington state are evidence that they did.  But they probably pioneered the Lewis and Clark trail centuries before Lewis and Clark did.  That route is mostly a water route.  The LENAPE were at home on the water.

Those are a couple of the “Biggies.”  There appear to be more.

See if you can find them and write something in the comments.



The entrance to North America was by men
 in row boats via Hudson Bay.
First came the copper haulers, 4,200 to 3,200 years ago.

Then came the Ancient Norse, who built the Manitoba Mounds.
Then came the LENAPE (a.k.a. Norse Christians or Vikings) about 1,000 years ago.
[The route is approximate, but the climate has shifted North by 30 degrees F.
Where ice was used for migration, boats may be necessary. Where boats were used, boats may now be in a swamp.]
There is much evidence found along the route. West of Hudson Bay the terrain modifications of the Copper haulers, 4200 to 3200 BC, lie in plain sight.


The Norway House was the northern passage to Lake Winnipeg
The Norway House was built by Norwegians in the 19th century.  But they chose to build the house at the best, and maybe the only, passage from the Nelson River watershed to Lake Winnipeg.
The Norway House passage separates two water levels.  To the north is Cross Lake, with most of the waters at 208 meters.  To the south are waters leading to Lake Winnipeg.  All these waters are at 216-219 m.  Some of the terrain appears to have been man-modified.
The man-modification of the terrain may have occurred between 4200 and 3200 BC, when calculations based on the copper removed from Lake Superior estimates that 200 boats and over 3,400 men PER YEAR for a THOUSAND YEARS had to have passed through the passage at Norway House. 
The LENAPE passed through the Norway House passage about 1,000 AD.  "LENAPE"means to "Abide with the pure."  In modern Eurocentric words, the LENAPE were Norse.  The English PR turned the Norse sea people into "Vikings."
The French called the LENAPE language "Algonquin."  The French translators based their name on the words of a group of men in one village.  Those men said they were "Algonquin."  What the men meant was that they "all were descendants of the (same) chief."
The words on this the Winnipeg map (above) from a 1708 French map confirm that the language of the LENAPE, who passed, as traders, through the Norway House passage 1000 years ago was OLD NORSE.
"Asleniposils" means in Old Norse, "Our Pure father of Light."  The Lenape were Christians.
They knew that Christ had said "I am the light of the world."
In 1708 the French knew the Lenape were Christians.  The word "Christinaux" is prominent
throughout the rest of the map.  French maps from the middle of the 17th century show the label "Christian Sea" in Hudson Bay near the mouth of the Nelson River.
You did not learn any of this knowage in school.
Why not?
The French lost the "French and Indian war," which was planned in the English parliament.  The English did not want the world to know there were Norse Christians in Norh America. 
The 17th century White Anglo Saxon Protestants (WASP)s suppressed that knowledge by omitting it from their classrooms.   The suppression became institutionalied.  Early American History has been suppressed by institutionalized omission of the real facts ever since.



The 17th century WASP and Catholic hatred resulted in three poisonous paradigms that changed the paradigms for the"winning of the west."

"Savages" was in the minds of all men who pulled the triggers on the guns that won the west.  But many of those "savages" were Christians.

The WASPs wrote that "The Vikings came to L'anse Aux Meadow, stayed a few years and had no impact on America." In fact, the Americans in the eastern one half of North America speak Old Norse and have Northern European DNA.

The WASPs also wrote, without evidence, that"All of the original natives walked over the Bering Strait tens of thousands of years ago."  In fact, the Norse rowed in from the east 1,000 years ago.  Most of the Cherokees came to America from the Mediterranean  after 1615.

All of the orthodox history statements have not been supported by valid evidence.  Evidence continues to be found to support the hypothesis that the Americans in the eastern North America came from the east, spoke, old Norse, and carry Northern European DNA.


The 17th centuryWASPs exterminated the Catholics, Norse Christians and Cherokees. Then, when the new Catholic King of England, James II, created the Dominion of New Englang, the WASPs resorted to the poisonous paradigms to hide their evil actions.  Further they began a suppression of history by omitting evidence of Norse in America.

The paradigms swiftly became institutionalized. The WASPs had the only printing center in North America. The classrooms of each WASP church eventually became the model for the U.S. educational system.

Paradigms are a mental model of the world.  But a set of poisonous paradigms still exist.  These paradigms are used by the schools to teach 13 million school kids/per year that:

there were no Norse in America,

all "Native" Americans came over the Bering Strait, 

all "Native" Americans were "Savages,"and

even today all "Native" Americans are less civilized than Europeans.

Critics of the WASP suppression hypothesis say:

"Maintenance of catholicism is much more problematic and should have been well noted by the French who introduced Catholicism into just this country at the same time as the English were setting up their colonies. Whatever was maintained it had to survive 500 years of separation without the benefit of trained clergy. It will be interesting to piece together."






I was scanning the many, many images that google's bots had found for LENAPE, when I spied the image above.  I noticed immediately the Lenape pictographs and the Norse runes.

For about a decade I have been looking for more positive evidence that the Lenape had Norse ancestors.   This image appeared to offer the most positive evidence without convolutions and serious study.  I believed I had "hit the jackpot."

In the past I had deciphered about 14 stanzas of the Maalan Aarum (Walam Olum).  Craig Judge of Kean university had deciphered about six stanzas.  We had found the word "Norsk" in stanza 4.3.  This find connecting the Maalan Aarum to the Norse language that was used by the creators of the Lenape history.

But the deciphering procedure is convoluted.  A person deciphering the Maalan Aarum needs months of serious study before they are willing to accept Rieder T. Sherwin's conclusion that "the Algonquin Indian Language is Old NOrse."  

There are two styles of Norse runes, and some variance. The Norse runes found in America are of the older version which was replaced, in Sweden, with a newer version in the ninth century.

The "For to Fish--Ten Men Dead" stanza has a message that is also punched into the Kensington Rune stone.  But for an observer to believe that the two messages are the same requires the acceptance that the Algonquin Indian Language is Old Norse and the willingness to overlook the knee jerk reaction quoted in most historic texts that the Kensington Rune Stone is a "hoax." The Kensington Rune Stone has the newer version of runes and the date of "1362." Most historians think that the date must be a hoax because they KNOW Columbus sailed in AD 1492,

Few people, especially those repeating the pre-colonial myths, consider that Norse, many of whom speant their lives at sea, could ROW to America in 20 days.  No stage from land to land was longer than six days.  They lived off fish and birds.  The fresh water supply needed for six days fit into the water barrel in the rear of a Norse boat.  Scurvy, the curse of colonial SAILING ships, was minimized by the green plants found on the lands only six days apart.

Yet, solid evidence, punched into stone, has not been considered worthy of print in history books. The paradigm of the history books is that the WASPs arrived at a pristine wilderness.

I find it reassuring that the name "Kensington" means in Old Norse "Kins' place town."  The town in western Minnesota is still known by that name. The town's location between the former Lake Alexandrina and the Chippewa (ship way) River is on a high, dry location where the Lenape--Norse Christians-- may have laid the bones of their kin to rest.

But to return to the document discussion, I thought someone in the past must  have put pictographs and the runes in the same document for a reason.  I was correct. 

Troy Swain wrote to me: "I drew it based on Lenape pictographs. Originally, I wanted the players who had characters who spoke Lenape to decipher it."

The comments below are keyed to the numbers on the image above.
1.  Eve and the serpent.  Most of you know that story.  The Lenape in America knew it by memory 1,000 years ago.
17 THINGS2.  
God drove Adam, Eve, and the Serpent from the Garden of Eden.  The long tongue hanging down from God to earth had seventeen marks across it.  Those lines were to remind the storyteller of the seventeen bad things that humans would have to suffer in life.
Things like:  to woman. I will greatly multiply your sorrows.  Those sorrows included pain at childbirth and serving men.
3. The Ark lands: The water ran off, the earth dried, the lakes were at rest, all was silent, and the mighty snake departed.

4 & 5:  These two pictographs are not in the Walam Olum, which implies that Troy was using a different source of pictographs.  He called them “Lenape pictographs” when the rest of the world knew the pictographs as the Walam Olum.
6. The first Lenape come to America:  This pictograph is a key pictograph.  The Lenape rowed to western Minnesota and saved themselves from an environmental disaster in Greenland.

Troy left out a most important pictograph.  That pictograph shows Bishop Erik Gnuppson coming to America.  The pictograph uses a pun to indicate the Bishop was the “Light of the world.   The canoe in the pictograph is shown above the water.  In Lenape “above” and “light” sound nearly the same.  The man who made the pictograph deliberately drew the canoe above the water to indicate that the man in the canoe carried the “light.”

Bishop Erik Gnuppson was a man used to motivating other men.  His friends, who were many, called him “Henrico.”  Based upon Bishop Gnuppson’s performance in Greenland, he almost surely built a church somewhere in America.  His followers almost surely named the church “Henrico.”

7.  The Big Bird and the Beaver Head:  These two leaders decide that the Lenape should go to the other side—America.  But they are not dictators.  They had to convince the “Althing.”  Then the leaders had to convince the churches.  Twelve of the eighteen churches agreed to go to the other side.

8. Paul Knudson from Norway: The head with feathers was a symbol of a Norse Prince.  Norse princes were Christians.  They wore feathers not horns.  Do you know any other people who wore feathers?

When Knudson and his boats reached the people migrating from Greenland, the record says “No one turned back from here to there.  No deserter went off yonder.”  The Lenape syllables for “yonder” might be understood as the Norse word for Valhalla.

9. Death of Paul Knudson:  “Most but not all survived” a boat reek on submerged rock.  Knutson’s sword, axe head, and fire steel are in the Lake Nipigon museum in Canada.  The broken sword is the evidence of the water pressure that jammed Knudson’s body against the sword caught between the rocks. 

This episode happened about 1360.  Both Lenape histories record the episode.  The original letter sending Knudson on a rescue mission to the Greenland people still exists—online eve n.   The three physical items of evidence are still seen in the museum.  So why do not the histories books at least record the “Norwegian Prince Knudson died in a boat wreck near Lake Nipigon in 1359?

The fact that there is no record of Knudson’s death in the history books has nothing to do with the evidence or the testimony.  The episode does not support the myth that Columbus was first and that America was a pristine wilderness when the English came.  Therefore the historians continue to ignore the evidence and teach the myth.

This is one place were Troy led me astray.  I know, from deciphering the Lenape history, that, soon after Prince Knudson died, Snow Bird took a group of Norse west to the Nelson River.  Then they went south to western Minnesota, where the Kensington Rune stone still sits in a museum.  The Kensington Rune stone is more evidence not in history books.

White Beaver took a group of Lenape and went east and then south.  Medicine Man reports that journey in his book, The children of the Morning Sun.  The round lake at #10 is probably lake St. Jean.  There are 18 dots, probably representing tribes around the lake. 

In my book , the Frozen Trail to Merica, I wrote a fictional account of my character visiting Lake St. Jean.  He saw the canoes from 17 tribes.  I think Troy’s pictograph and my story refer to the historic fact that the Lake St. Jean was a tribal meeting place. 

 The boat at #11 would have fit into the history that the White Beaver group made a migration to the east and then south.  A large boat operated by non-Lenape, the triangle, may have provided the transportation via the St. Lawrence River, Lake Champlain, and the long Connecticut River.  The following pictograph is compatible with a people who believed they were the people of the morning sun.

But the migration of the Lenape historian apparently continued.  I have little knowledge of that migration or the meaning of the pictographs.  Except #12 is interesting.  The pictograph shows what appears to be a man smoking.   But a closer look indicates that a land area was the intent of the pictograph.  It could be Florida with the Mississippi River shown to the left.  Six streams flow north to south above the land area.  There are six observable rivers north of Florida that flow from the North to the south.

Either way, a smoking man or Florida the pictographs may indicate the Lenape migrated to Virginia where the English found them.

The English also found a “magnificent Church” in Virginia at a place called “Henrico.”  Henrico still exists.

Finally, we have a connection with the history you learned.  Most of you know about Pocahontas.  She was imprisoned in the “magnificent Church” for nine months so commander Thomas Dale could have sex on demand.  You were not taught that fact in school, because the 17th century English did not want you to learn the details.

I do not know where Troy got the runes at #13.  We have to assume they were merged onto the pictograph page in 2009.   Troy’s story needed pictographs and ancient script.  The value of the runes is that they caught my attention.  Because of that interest, I have taken better look at the pictographs.  The pictographs for the Atlantic Coast migration are the items of value to be studied more.

Some of the pictographs of the Atlantic coast migration are coherent with the known evidence and testimony of the Lenape History.  So we have added another bit of coherent evidence to the Lenape history, which will be useful when American history is written by Social Scientist faculty, who are truly scientists.



This data is for a FACTUAL story, Fourteen Norse Ships lie along the Viking Waterway.
On August 14 ff, 2014 I saw the pageview spike (above) and, later, the extended pageview activity for my FACTUAL post, Fourteen Norse Ships lie along the Viking Waterway.
In the time span shown, I had 1682 pageviews to the Fourteen Norse Ships... .
Notice the viewer activity to the left.
You should be able to discern my concern that a factual post gets so little viewer activity until a fake news story creates interested viewers.
Did the fake story taint all posts about Norse Christians?  
Did anybody pause to ponder over the reason why valid evidence has so little interest and an erroneous paradigm, learned in school, have so much response.
The fake story of the Vikings in the Mississippi attracted viewers because the story challenged the accepted paradigm.  The fake story might have been just one more minor piece of probable evidence to a documented, well known history. 
The previously known valid evidence is convincing that the Vikings (Norse Christians) were in the Mississippi for more than 500 years.
The fake story did not change the valid Norse Christian history.  So viewers may not have responded like they did. 

But the fake story may have entrenched the Columbus was first paradigm, especially when the viewer discovered the evidence was fake.
The evidence of the Viking Waterway (below) is compelling factual information that should convince most viewers that the Norse Christians floated over the Viking Waterway to reach the Mississippi long before Columbus sailed.

Most of your students are carrying Smart Phones into class.
The factual history about the Norse Christians in America is in LENAPE LAND, formatted for smartphones.
If you truly teach the plausible histories of America, the small spike I show above will be overwhelmed by 3 million student pageviews.  I look forward to seeing millions of pageviews.
The kids are smart enough to separate fact from fiction.  But first they need to know where the factual evidence is. 
That is where you, the educator, become involved. Do not teach the kids one irrefutable, but erroneous, paradigm, guide them to the valid data of many plausible histories.

           and so little about 
                          NORSE Christians?



Norse Christians have been in North America since AD 1050  AD.
They were formerly Catholics who were stripped of Catholic administration during their migration in the Little Ice Age.
Nature [in the role of the Ice Age climate] separated Church and State.
The "Church" became the local congregation with a local medicine man/shaman, who taught the bible stories, treated illness, was a spiritual advisor, and presided over the life changing episodes like birth, naming,  marriage, and death.

The "State" was developed from the Nordic Althing.  
Norsemen were accustomed to independent action including the right to speak.
The "Thing"was a meeting of the multitudes, where the men discussed the way society should be.  The Norsemen were expected to live up to the agreements made at the "Thing."  Norsemen were each expected to be enforcers of the agreements.
.Usually, if there was a disagreement, a local Judge, who was called a "Sakkym," would make the final decision.

[Iceland became Christian when  a Judge decided the religion of Iceland should be Christian.]

Norse Christians were along the Atlantic coast, when the WASPs nvaded.
The Norse Christians wore crosses and had beliefs similar to Catholics.  

[The Norse Catholics had a "Mother" (of Jesus) in every temple, similar to the Virgin Mary in every church.]

The WASPS knew about the Mother of Jesus but they called her a “Monster.”  They destroyed the temple, burned the history sticks, and wrote that the "natives were pagan."

But the Norse Christians knew the ten commandments, the Golden Rule, the Lazarus story, the Jesus story, about life everlasting, and they had a "mother" in every temple. They DID have temples.

The Wasps mistook Norse Christians for recent French Catholic converts, who they also exterminated and suppressed.  See below.


The WASPs exterminated Catholics and Norse Christians from  AD 1612 to later than 1720.

The WASPs purged most of the evidence of Catholics, including Norse Catholics during the 17th century of American history.


This lack of evidence of Norse Christians has profoundly distorted North American history.


We are all involved. 

We all learned early American history without being told that the Norse Catholic and other plausible histories were suppressed.  We do not really know what knowledge was suppressed centuries ago.  We now have enough evidence to conclude that much was suppressed.

We cannot continue to accept the WASP version of early American history as the only valid history.
Some of us write the early American history curriculum.  The only history in the curriculum is a myth created by 17th century WASPs.  We do wrong by not publishing evidence that reveals the suppressed knowledge.  If we do not publish the evidence, we are promulgating the myth.  

We should be involved in recovery of repressed knowledge.  

Truth is one attribute many people treasure.  
I.e. "The truth will set us free."

The students of today, who seek the truth, should be empowered with all the knowledge.

We are all involved.
Let us do SOMETHING!
