Ancient Words In Ethel Stewart’s ‘Last King Of The Hsi-Hsia Empire’

The “Last King of the Hsi-Hsia Empire” by Ethel Stewart (previous article) discusses several aspects of Tibetan Buddhism in order to explain the Dene version of this history. There is little unity in this current piece. It is simply a chance to point out that Medieval Asian history retained many names that were ancient and EMSL-like. The near universal occurrence of EMSL names came to an end in Asia with the development of modern Chinese culture that has a new name for most peoples and locations.

My current view of Tibetan Buddhism is that it emerged ca 500 BCE as an attempt to add new ideas to a combination of Hinduism + Sun/Light religion. We can find remnants of this new religion in Native American culture, but it is often quite dilute and modified by genuine American ideas. The principal mechanism for such change was the requirement to give up many remnants of Neolithic/Copper Age culture in favor of the Paleolithic/Neolithic culture adopted for American survival. And we surely understand that this older culture was the Earth Mother Culture (EMC) that we have investigated thoroughly.

Where Did The 4,000 Lenape Go?

By,

The Lenape walked over a frozen ocean to a land, where nothing was growing.

Then God delivered geese and whales. This action was an experience similar to God delivering manna in a desert.

 

The Lenape history says that the number of Lenape actually multiplied! The Lenape History tells of the Lenape holding a meeting soon after they came to America.

                       The Lenape invited

people, who were in America, to attend the meeting. That meeting was the first of many meetings of government by council in America. The U.S. government is, basically, a government by council.
At the meeting The Lenape immigrants elected an American to be Judge. The judge had red hair!

           The Norwegians sent a rescue mission. 
The Lenape recorded that “No one went from here to there.”

God was not providing enough food for both the local Christians and the 4,000 Lenape.
             The Lenape divided to make the journey

around the southern Christian tribes. White Beaver took his band east and then south to Connecticut. 

Snow Bird took his band northeast and then south, up the Nelson and Reds Rivers to Minnesota, “the pleasant land.”

When they were at Lake Winnipeg,
The meeting of many rivers was to the east. The pleasant land was to the south.

The relentless Little Ice Age weather forced both groups, and the local Lenape, to move further south. White Beaver’s group rowed down the coast. They found a Miami (heartland) in Florida. Snow Bird’s group began a 3,000-mile, 150-year migration to New York via the Dakotas. (Dakota means “cold.”)
