Greetings, all gentlepersons...
Additional info on the Iroquois origins, for those who might like it:
I sent the thread about Iroquois migrations to my brother-mentor in Ontario, Canada.
He is high level, elder status within the Medewiwin Medicine Lodge, and is open to
answering generalistic questions. He had this to say when I asked him about the thread.
[bracketed comments mine...cap]
"All I know about the migration up from South America by the Iroquois was told to me by [one of his Lodge mentors] who passed through the western door a few years back.
He was a good friend and we traded back and forth the old way. [in traditional rites and teaching sessions]
The Iroquois lived in the Florida area for a while after coming up from Olmec territories, a place of their roots. [this origin tradition told by the
Iroquois themselves in Lodge]
They then traveled up north where they swung East across the Allegheny River.
At that point, the [to be] Iroquois became engaged in a war with the people on the eastern side of the river, with a farming people of giant stature .
This war was all through a misunderstanding and it was a bloody one at that.
The Cherokee took in the farmer-tribe's survivors.
They are now Cherokee.
You would know one just to see one as their DNA still carry the magic of huge stature.
I met one who came to one of the gatherings in 1999 in Australia.
He was 6 foot 11 inches tall and he let me try on his silver ring so I could tell the story of our meeting and of his great size.
Just touch your index finger to your ring finger ..... his ring went past the knuckles of all three fingers .... about the size of a big banana.
He was like his people .... Gentle Giants.
The Iroquois traveled east after the war, then north, then back to south central Ontario.
They do have a snow game that was derived from a far older one.
The older one is called mud cat. it is a short stick that they slung down a mud trough.
The winner was the longest distance covered.
The Snow version of it came much later as they moved north.
It is called the Snow Snake.
It looks like a long spear with a bump on the top of the point.
They still have the Snow Snake races here in the wintertime.
Any of this help? "
So there you have the inside story from the Native POV, regardless of what
outside, non-native speculations and theories might generate for chatter.
My bro told me the Mohawk, especially, will quietly claim without fanfare
that they are descendants of the Olmec, and say they 'did so' work stone
before the latest Old World colonists came.
This might add a bit of twist to the "Maya" controversy in Georgia... ha!
How would one tell the difference between Olmec and Mayan stone traditions
and use, when one sprang from the other and co-existed for centuries of
overlap in real-time? mmmmm.....
