      On that theme of Universal, interconnecting worldviews of the global, original indigenese populations (and there are a lot of interconnecting views going on now and all thru history/HERstory) i would invite the lot of you to read a most mind-opening book.
      "Voices Of the First Day" by Robert Lawlor   1991.
      It focuses on the primal Australian model of Aboriginal traditions, as the framework for the great majority of archaic cultures that can be seen mirrored in that Ozzy matrix. A must read in order to understand where the Traditional mind is peering from and why there are so many misunderstandings between First Peoples of almost any continent and the Euro-western psychology or philosophy.
      Perhaps there are some among you who are already familiar with those pages. That book alone, being so rich and full of information, could be the basis of a whole 'nuther Yahoogroup by itself!

      Hello all,
      The majority of oral traditions all support the diffusion as the fact, with the land bridge as the fantasy of scientists twisted to the theft of land and resources. I am glad to be in the company of elements where their guiding lights are filled with the real humanity springing from the peaceful souls of our shared divine evolution.
      Even our cousins who originated from the Pliades and travelled in stone boats or on the wings of chickadees all interwove their trade and benefits with the other families of nations on the back of turtle island. You will find that there are many prehistoric artifacts and other primal sites still hidden and buried behind natural barriers that our elders still speak of and instill hope with in the young minds and hearts of today.
      I am extremely glad to be here,
      Good wishes to all,
      Martin Carriere

      Not wanting to stray too far from Vince's weekend Mayan conference, I am interested in knowing more about the oral traditions of some HoChuck tribal groups connecting their ancestry to Mexico...whether it was trade and/or origins, that would mean interrelationships, trade, diffusion.   And be an alternative to the academically accepted NW land bridge theories. 
      Perhaps members Larry Johns, Jim Scherz, viewer Ritchie Brown and others here might want to add further information.  Following the link Steve Steigerwald sent, I was interested in the name HoChunk as did not recall  its more common use a few decades ago.
      I  am personally very interested in the Tisch Mills area of Wisconsin (some of you may recall recent posts, news articles).  I have also considerable time exploring the Door Peninsula SE of Green Bay, WI,   am aware of visible remains of countless numbers of ancient peoples who lived there...very apparently for thousands of years.  Hopefully these Wikepedia references are accurate:  http://en.wikipedia .org/wiki/ Ho-Chunk
