~  America's Ancient Skraelings  ~

First People to Inhabit the Eastern Seaboard of USA & Canada

Myth of the Bering Land Bridge

On Viking Lief Erikson's explortory trip to America he painted a detailed picture of a young Skraeling boy, that showed him wearing brown knickers, and brown vest, a long-sleeved white shirt, white knee-socks and dark shoes. Erikson's American Skraelings "type" shown below.

The Skraelings, whom, the Vikings already seemed to know about, and according to Erikson were the only people living in the eastern areas of America they explored, must have been friendly, because Erikson not only took the time to paint the boy's picture in detail, but he and his crew explored eastern parts of Canada as well; and before leaving felled trees, sailing home with a shipload of timber.

Erikson did not paint the Skraeling as an Inuit, nor an "Indian", but what we recognize as a European-type, with nicely made clothes and haircut. The Skraelings did not dress like the Vikings who wore belted tunics over long full britches tucked into high boots. Viking women dressed the same as the men, because everyone farmed the land -- except on Sundays when they feasted. Then the Viking ladies wore long dresses.

"Skraelings" in old language is described as "writers", "writers on rock", "makes lists" -- (enscribers); and "yelling". Linguists and philologists know the Celts -- Basques had inhabited the Americas because of the stone graffiti they left for others to read. Could the Skraelings' writing have been Ogham or Runes, along with yodels; or perhaps "dog-type" howls/yelps?

British history records that Prince Murdock of Wales also brought his family and multitudinous colonists to America, settling in New England and elsewhere prior to A.D. 1170. Lief Erikson's Vikings had already explored the land nearly two centuries earlier in A.D. 1000, and appeared to know of the Skraelings, calling them "the Enscribers," and the only people inhabiting the areas -- obviously having colonized the areas before Erikson's visit, and well before Prince Murdock's colonists, although the continent had already been well known to the Celts.

Another ancient visitor to the hinterlands of eastern America wrote that the people living there wore white clothes and had blond hair.

The early English settlers, when describing the Shawnees wrote, that because of their keen resemblance to those a man would find on a high-class street in London, or in a Duke's place; and that they also kept the rites of Moons, offered their first fruits, celebrated a feast like the feast of tabernacles, laid their alter on twelve stones, mourned for a year, and kept the same women's customs.

Below are three 1800s, Ohio Shawnees -- Tecumseh on left showing his light grey or bluish eyes; and on the right, a photograph of Tecumseh's exact, spittin'-image grandson wearing deceased Tecumseh's big medal. Next to him is his mother wearing a tiarra-type cap. The Shawnees preferred wearing the same clothes as the Americans, and were also farmers, and hunted -- basically similar culture. Tecumseh had fought heroically in the civil war in the Union Army right alongside the generals and soldiers.

The Shawnee Elders kept a close watch on Tecumseh's exact, spittin'-image grandson, because Tecumseh had stated before he died (in the war), that he would return. The Elders thought Tecumseh might have returned as his grandson, but no such luck, his grandson did not turn-out to have the same personality traits and temperament as Tecumseh.

When the Pilgrims -- English settlers, arrived in New England two centuries earlier in 1620, they had settled on a vacant area of land that looked good for farming, which they named Plymouth. The people, Pauquunaukit, "Pokanoket" at first had stayed back -- because of previous problems with English seamen -- and watched the settlers from a distance, but when they discovered that many, to half of them had died from starvation because of the failure of their crops, they intervened. A Pokanoket man named Samoset came to see them.

To their complete surprise, Samoset spoke broken English, which he said he'd learned from English seamen fishing along the coast of Maine. As it turns out back in the early 1500s, before the Pilgrims' arrival, English seamen plying the ocean there, fishing and trading for furs, hauling timber on their ships, had taken many of them on board, and very serious trouble had ensued. The Pilgrims knew all about the Pokanoket and their extensive territory before they had arrived, which also had rich soil with which to farm. The Celts had been making the long sea journies back and forth since pre-neolithic/Bronze age. The Pokanoket were also considered the most beautiful people, with very civil customs, along that sea route by an Italian sea captain.

Native American Squanto The next day Samoset arrived with another man from nearby Patuxet, Tisquantum,"Squanto" for short, who could speak even better English. Squanto/Tisquantum told the settlers that seven years earlier (in 1613), an English sea captain (Thomas Hunt) had picked him up, and sailed off with him to Spain/Portugal. From there, he'd made his way to France, and to England.

Afterward he took a trip with a French sea captain to Newfoundland, sailing back again and to England, which he described to his related tribesman as a very awesome place. While traveling with the sea captains, he'd learned to pilot ships, in which he was quite good at, and guided the Pilgrim's ships through the shallow shoals near shore when needed. A sketch of Squanto, at upper left.

Native American Squanto Squanto had lived in London until he finally returned home to Patuxet on another English sea expedition for furs, fish and timber, only to find that his entire Patuxet tribe had been wiped out by a rat-urine virus. The Pilgrims were now living at Plymouth on the vacant area where Squanto's tribal home had once been before the virus. One wonders if the prior viral contamination of the area might have caused some of the settler's own deaths beside starvation?

Squanto told the Pilgrims he'd sailed across the Alantic Ocean four times. He personally showed the Pilgrims the complete, detailed ropes of his Native Patuxet farming, and stayed with them for 20 months until he too, died from the same rat virus, or poisoning by a rival tribesman. Possibly even a sad heart from loosing his entire family and relatives. He left his personal things to special settler friends. Noting also, that some of Squanto's neighboring, related tribesmen had ancient "Egypto-type" names, but were spelled in unknowing English-style.

It is also ancient history that the Celts had sailed back and forth to the Americas because they were mining and smelting copper ore in Michigan and the Great Lakes' areas during the Neolithic age, and continued coming and going right-up to 55 BCE, when Rome's small, slave-oared galleys' sent by Gaius Caesar to Britain, surrounded and captured their ocean going fleets when the winds suddenly died. The Celts' large ships used sails only, and having no oars were captured. Other battles arose on the island as the Celts attempted to protect themselves from the Roman invaders, but to no avail. Romans then occupied Britain for some 400 years.

The Shang Dynasty Chinese, 1600-1046 BCE, who were also seasoned mariners, at some time sailed to Mexico, built a settlement along the area where the Panama Canal is now, mapped North America up to the Mississippi River and sailed back to China with the maps, which were found in the Shang Ruler's tomb. Their settlement was later destroyed by an earthquake, but uncovered and dug-up by the canal builders. One such find was a goldsmith's shop with a mural painted on the wall showing the Chinese wearing quilted jackets.

This information was published, but swept under the rug and forgotten, as were the Celts-Basques still abiding in the Americas. Other dynasties followed the Shang, bringing their jade burial suits. Much Later the South American cousins of the Basque-Celts were massacred by later-come Chinese who had climbed up the Peruvian mountain, freed the black slaves there and took over -- since named Ching Ching.

Cherokees/Creeks -- more knickers and vests, above.

Ancient-style Greeks/Creeks/Algonquins, etc. Original Native American dances were danced and sung in ancient "Greek/Slavic," et al. Later, more pot pourri, integrating arrivals were the Shang Chinese, and mixed-races up from South America, Mexico, Balkans, Mideast, Egypt, India, Japan, African slaves and many more were brought over in the great ships, bringing along with them territorial wars.

Who would hike with dogs over hundreds to thousands of miles of enormous, dangerous Arctic glaciers, ice, and snow from a frozen Siberia -- to what? More frozen, dangerous Arctic glaciers, ice and snow? Who would sail their ships or boats through the large, dangerous ice bergs, or the opening and closing frozen waters and ice flows until the global-warming melt-downs permitted? Even sailors with fairly modern ships and heaters froze to death while attempting to cross the North-West passage.

Very precariously, Russion ships brought Russian, Basque and Mongolian fishermen and trappers. Japanese and Ainu whalers and fishermen also made trips in their ships -- later they were called "Eskimos" of Alaska and the far North-West coasts of America.

Vikings were originally Ionian Greeks/Phoenicians, and had been sailing to and from the Americas including Mexico and South America for thousands of years, bringing many people with them as did the Achians/Achaeans. "Apalachians" means "Place of Achians/Achaeans." Achaeans and Phoenicians sailed from Phoenicia's Tyre and Sidon, and colonized the globe.

And nearly 500 years after Lief Erikson, knowing they were heading for the Americas -- not the west Indies as the story given, Columbus had a Basque navigator bring his ships to South America, but because of hardships they made it only to San Salvador Island and back. When Cortez arrived, he wrote that some ("white-people"--Celts/Basques, etc.,) were still there. The Americas were the ancient mariners' (Phoenicians) very well-kept secret. They called it, "God's Country."

The Celts-Basques living in north America eventually amalgamated with the later new-comers coming-up from Mexico, South America, the Chinese, etc., ad infinitum, along with all the territorial wars faded out of history -- although remnants of their structures (that haven't been plowed-up), along with place names and rock-writing are still found across the country.
