BRONZE AGE TRADE ROUTES
2400 BC to 
LITTLE ICE AGE (cAD 1350)

Three million people from the east side of the Atlantic came to North America in at least 200,000 crew-rowed boats to remove over a billion pounds of copper from the Lake Superio region.

  1. Myron,
    My great-grandfather was Lenape (New Jersey). When we were children, we were told of ancestors coming from a frozen land to a land of geese to a land of plenty. After a time, the water went away, suddenly, and they migrated again, south and east to New Jersey. We moved to New York when I was small, and he told us to watch out for the Indians up here because they were cannibals who called the Lenape "The Food People". He talked about being "Turtle Clan" and about talking to anthropologist types who said that the water going away was "proof of Noah's flood". He also talked about the Shawnee "Going South".
    Unfortunately, he passed away 45 years ago, and I only remember a small bit of the things he talked about. I had forgotten about most of it until a woman I know (another N.J. transplant)was telling me her mother (Ramapo) made her break off a relationship with her boyfriend (Seneca) because of "Cannibalism".
    Might be an interesting idea to track Factor V Leiden clotting issues in the Algonquin descendants, specifically in the Lenape, Wendat, Shawnee, Ramapo, and related groups.
