THE VALLEY OF OWG, By:Robert Alford Darby, Date: 4/6/09
http://www.bbsradio.com/cgi-bin/webbbs/webbbs_config.pl/read/706

THE VALLEY OF OWG

Jesson, son of Rakaooh, married Wepon, daughter of Bakhawughmeiuhowangotobah, and they begat Sto-gil-bak, and he begat Kom, and he begat See, and she married Ban, son of the tribe Rakaooh, and Ban's first-born son's name was La-ban-a-see.

And Labanasee was born in su'is of the second order, and could hear the voice of the Creator, Gitchee, the Great Spirit. And the Voice remained with Labanasee during his life-time, which was one hundred and twenty and five years, when he died. And the Voice descended to Labanasee's son, Hootlabanasee, who lived one hundred and one years, and he died, and the Voice descended to his son, Hatapanagooshhootlabanasee; and thence to his son after him, named Arapanseekasoodativhatapanagooshhootlabanasee.
Thus were represented the eighteen tribes of Gitchee's chosen amongst the I'huans who should become everlasting heirs to the Voice.

And God said unto Ara: Arise and go forth; my hand will steer thee. So Ara rose up and departed by the hand of the Creator, and came to the valley of Owg, broad and sweet-smelling, full of health-giving food and air and water. And there came with Ara into Owg one thousand men, women and children; and they built a city and called it Eftspan, signifying place of beauty.

And these took the name of the tribe of Ara, the which name survived one thousand seven hundred and fifty years. And their people were tens of thousands.

SWEETGRASS & SAGE

FROM ZETATALK (TROUBLED TIMES)
Rare indigenous plants flourish in Canadian nursery
Reuters, September 21, 1998, by Leah Eichler
http://www.zetatalk.com/food/tfood17k.htm

Ken Parker, like many new homeowners, dreamed of a perfect garden. But Parker, a Seneca Indian and former U.S. Marine Corps sax player, knew he would have a problem planting common flowers in his garden on the reserve west of Toronto since it consisted mainly of clay soil and limestone. So he decided to use plants indigenous to the area, ones hardy enough to survive Canada's long, cold winters as well as the poor soil. But to his surprise he could not find any. Thus began his search for the literal roots of his people - a quest that sometimes pitted him against his elders but eventually led to a thriving new business. ''We just wanted a nice yard with a garden ... indigenous plants seemed like the logical choice but I couldn't find it,'' Parker told Reuters at his home on the Six Nations Reserve.

He searched for stores selling indigenous plants but found few that offered what he wanted, so he began traipsing around the continent looking for them in the wild. Now, with his wife Linda, he runs what may be the only nursery owned by Indians and dedicated to reestablishing native North American plants. His garden doubles as a showcase for indigenous plants. But his first commitment is to grow plants important to Indian cultures such as Sweetgrass and Sage, which are burned in religious ceremonies. His Sweet Grass Gardens carries several rare or hard-to-find species such as Canada's Prickly Pear, the Iroquois Potato, Buffalo Grass and Sweetgrass.

Sweetgrass used in Everyday Life

"Sweetgrass is very uncommon now,'' he said. ''Natives used to use it in everyday life ... to clear their minds and spirits and start their day. But no one was managing it and now the populations are relatively few.'' When it first opened, Sweet Grass Gardens carried about 12 varieties of plants. Now it has more than 200 listed in its catalogue as well as many that are not listed, which the Parkers keep in small quantities. Sweet Grass Gardens supplies combinations of plants suitable for different environments and soil conditions. For example, owners of a large piece of land can reproduce ''prairie'' conditions with a mixture of flowers and grasses, while more urban home owners can purchase rock garden plants or cacti native to the area that can survive winter.
Plants indigenous to colder climates develop deep root systems, Parker said. They are hardier but take longer to mature. Sometimes the only maintenance required is to till the land and cut back or burn the plants once a year. Originally, Parker's idea to sell native plants to Indians was received with trepidation since many on the reserve felt that people should not profit from ceremonial plants. ''What got us around that is we told elders that we want to restore the numbers, preserve and maintain them, and then they understood. It wasn't that we were trying to be greedy and sell our natural resources,'' Parker explained.

Scientific Names Used for Plants

Although their mission statement explicitly states their ambition to ''preserve the history of North America and its First Nation people by encouraging the rediscovery and respect for our traditional Mother Earth,'' Parker sticks with the scientific name for all his plants. ''I guess I was pretty naive because even here at Six Nations a single plant will have several names since Six Nations mean six distinct languages. And if I can only find a Seneca word for a plant the Cayuga may get mad and it became overwhelming,'' he explained. The Six Nations Reserve, where Sweet Grass Gardens is located, includes the Mohawk, Seneca, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga and Tuscarora people. It is the only native community in North America that has each of the Iroquois nations represented.
Sweet Grass Gardens has also become an educational center, offering slide and multimedia presentations of native plants from an Indian perspective.

Parker offers one-day workshops of topics ranging from propagation techniques to garden design. Although there is no standardized definition, Parker quickly realized that it would be necessary to differentiate between native plants and aboriginal ones. He defines native plants as those indigenous to North America before European settlement, while aboriginal plants are significant to Indian culture, whether medicinal, ceremonial or edible, and are not necessarily indigenous.

Business for Parker may not be booming yet but gardners and landscapers have shown enough interest in his idea to keep him going. ''When we first started we said, 'If we could sell Sweetgrass and Sage to 5 percent of the aboriginal population in Ontario, our business could be successful,' and that's not a lot if you think about it,'' Parker said. But the business took off in directions the Parkers did not anticipate and most of their sales go to non-Indians. Many environmentally conscious gardeners are attracted by the notion of native gardening, since chemicals are not necessary. ''I hate to say it but it's very trendy now, even with non-natives,'' Parker said. ''They're all interested in growing herbal remedies and stuff.''

TROUBLED TIMES

Nuwaubians, http://www.zetatalk.com/teams/tteax001.htm
Georgia Sect Alarms Neighbors
Associated Press, July 27, 1999

A sect founded by an ex-convict has built two 40-foot pyramids and a giant sphinx amid the pines and red clay of middle Georgia, alarming some with its armed guards and prophecies of deliverance by spaceships from another galaxy. The sheriff and the sect had an armed confrontation in April when he tried to escort a building inspector onto the property, and tensions are running so high that mediators from the U.S. Justice Department were called in earlier this summer. The members call themselves the Yamassee Native American Nuwaubians and claim to have created a utopian society on their 476-acre compound of Egyptian-style architecture.

Many people in and around Eatonton - a rural community that was the birthplace of Alice Walker, author of "The Color Purple," and Joel Chandler Harris, creator of the Uncle Remus tales - fear the Nuwaubians are similar to Heaven's Gate, the cult whose 39 members committed mass suicide in 1997 in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., and the People's Temple followers of Jim Jones. "This group here has a combination of all those schools of thought," Sheriff Howard Sills said. About 100 Nuwaubians live in trailers on the compound. An additional 300 to 400 reside elsewhere in Putnam County. The Nuwaubians, most of whom are black, claim to be descended from the Egyptians and the Yamassees, a tribe of Indians indigenous to this part of Georgia.

Past the armed guards at the compound's entryway, Nile River Road stretches between two rows of statues of Egyptian royalty. A gold pyramid serves as a mini-mall, with a bookstore and clothing store. A labyrinth leads to the black pyramid, which serves as a church. Inside, an Egyptian-like chant hums over speakers 24 hours a day. The group's lodge houses busts of King Tut and Queen Nefertiti and a glass tomb holding an alien-like creature with a huge head and bulging eyes. Members say they pay no dues and are free to come and go. And they insist that suicide is not in their plans. The group's founder, Dwight York, who calls himself Malachi Z. York, served time in New York in the 1960s for assault, resisting arrest and possession of a dangerous weapon

York has claimed to be from a galaxy called Illyuwn and has said that in 2003 spaceships are going to descend from the sky and pick up a chosen 144,000 people for a rebirth. Most recently, York has referred to himself as Chief Black Eagle, a reincarnated leader of the Yamassee Indians. "It's a constantly opportunistic evolving ideology," the sheriff said. "We've gone from an extraterrestrial to a Christian pastor to an Indian leader with willful and wanton resistance to legal authority time and time again." The group's spokeswoman, Renee McDade, and Marshall Chance, who is referred to as the Nuwaubians' leader, distance themselves from the space prophecies of York, who lives on the compound and refuses to give interviews. "We're all awaiting the coming of the real Messiah," Chance said. "We are a biblical people. If it's not in the Bible, then we're not concerned about it."

The group moved to Georgia in 1993 from New York, where it had operated under other names, including the Ansaru Allah Community. A 1993 FBI report linked that group to a myriad of crimes, including arson and extortion. Until recently, the Nuwaubians pretty much kept to themselves. Then last year, the county rejected a request to have the property rezoned from agricultural to commercial. Since then, the Nuwaubians have been at odds with county officials. Shortly after the building inspector was denied access, the sheriff and his deputies tried to enter. "The armed guards literally stood in front of my car," Sills said. "It was obvious to me that this was provocative and they wanted to provoke some sort of armed confrontation, so I decided to leave." When the sheriff returned two months later, "we were served with this cockamamie lawsuit that said we'd be fined $5 million if we went onto the property," Sills said.

The Nuwaubians said they have met all the permit requirements. "We feel they're trying to impede us from our progress here. It feels like they're trying to put us out of our land," Chance said. Mediators from the Justice Department's Community Dispute Resolution unit were asked to get involved after the Nuwaubians leveled charges of racism against officials in Putnam County, which has about 17,000 people, more than one-third of them black. "The Nuwaubians felt they were being harassed, the county officials said they were being harassed," mediator Ernie Stallworth said. "Everyone was pointing a finger and that has lessened, but I still believe we have work to do."

ZetaTalk: Over the Eons
Note: written by Jul 15, 1995. Planet X and the 12th Planet are one and the same.
http://www.zetatalk.com/visitatn/v07.htm

We, the Service-to-Others Zetas, have been involved with humans long before recorded history. Therefore let us refer to what humans call carbon dating, the capture of carbon atoms in an organic remnant that shows the presumed age of the remnant. The theory goes, since carbon in the natural free state in the atmosphere has such a ratio of characteristics, and the carbon in the organic remnant has a different ratio of characteristics, then the remnant has aged. In general this theory is correct, but in practical fact is too flawed to pinpoint with accuracy the exact millennium, much less the exact century or decade. We will refer, therefore, to the stage of human development, as humans understand these stages. This is to say, the human understanding is spotty. They have some of the pieces, but not all. They are still looking for the missing link, for instance, and arguing among themselves as to whether there was one origin, Africa, or numerous origins. There were numerous origins. Each race, and there have been six, has had a different origin. We were involved as observers from the start. We have been around, as visitors, continuously since that time, responding to The Call as it occurred.

The Earth has been visited by many alien groups since mankind's earliest stages, long before mankind was genetically engineered into intelligence, its present form. The marks left on human culture are so extensive as to preclude a list. Some of these influences are well known, in Egyptian and ancient Sumerian culture, or the Vedic writings, where visits from the 3rd Density hominoids from the 12th Planet left their mark, and holy books such as the Bible and Koran, a battleground between the original Service-to-Others authors and later Service-to-Self additions. Less well known are the influences in China, where the geneticists creating China Man influenced the culture left behind. Quiet moments in the garden, respect for wisdom and each other, and appreciation of the little things in life such as the song of the bird, are such marks. Also little known is the American Indian culture, assumed to be self developed by the Indians as they lived, isolated from the greater world. The Indians are not so aware of what they call shape shifting without reason. Their myths of spirit forms met in the woods and their own flights are based on true encounters, where they went Out-Of-Body and afterwards could not forget.

TROUBLED TIMES
Pole Shift, http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfo07b.htm
Excerpts from ZetaTalk on Violent Winds

At the shift, the surface of the Earth will move, in just under an hour, more than a quarter turn. Where massive earthquakes and tidal waves occur when this motion stops, hurricane force winds, world wide, occur during this shift. During the shift, the atmosphere of the Earth does several things, all at once. It drags along with the Earth, to which it is attracted, being primarily more involved with gravity attraction straight down. Do not the waters in your oceans move with the Earth as it turns? The atmosphere is an ocean too, just lighter and therefore more mobile. It moves as a mass, pushing on air in other places and likewise, itself being pushed. Thus, even in those places on the Earth which are not moving, during the shift, being pivot points, the air is turbulent. It swirls, as circular motion in air masses is the response to conflicting forces, as seen in the circular motion of tornadoes and hurricanes.
Excerpts from Worlds in Collision, The Hurricane
by Velikovsky, page 67-69

Manuscript Troano and other documents of the Mayas describe a cosmic catastrophe during which the ocean fell on the continent, and a terrible hurricane swept the earth. The hurricane broke up and carried away all towns and all forests. A wild tornado moved through the debris descending from the sky. The end of the world was brought by Hurakan. From this name is derived hurricane, the word we use for a strong wind.

The theme of the cosmic hurricane is reiterated time and again in the Hindu Vedas and in the Persian Avesta. The 11th tablet of the Epic of Gilgamesh says that 6 days and a night the hurricane, deluge, and tempest continued sweeping the land and mankind perished almost altogether. The Maoris narrate that amid a stupendous catastrophe the mighty winds, the fierce squalls, the clouds, dense, dark, fiery, wildly drifting, wildly bursting, rushed on creation, ... and swept away giant forests and lashed the waters into billows whose crests rose high like mountains.

The Polynesians celebrate a god, Taafanua. In Arabic, Tyfoon is a whirlwind and Tufan is the Deluge; and the same word occurs in Chinese as Ty-fong. It appears as though the noise of the hurricane was .. not unlike the name Typhon.

Excerpts from Worlds in Collision, The Hail of Stones
by Velikovsky, pp 51-53

Following the red dust, a small dust, like ashes of the furnace fell in all the land of Egypt (Exodus 9:18), and then a shower of meteorites flew toward the earth. We are informed by Midrashic and Talmudic sources that the stones which fell on Egypt were hot. Ipuwer wrote: "Trees are destroyed. No fruits, no herbs are found. Grain has perished on every side". In the Book of Exodus (9:25) it is written: "And the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field".

The description of such a catastrophe is found in the Visuddhi-Magga, a Buddhist text on the world cycles. "When a world cycle is destroyed by wind .. there arises .. a wind. First it raises a fine dust, then coarse dust, then fine sand, then coarse sand, then grit, stones, up to boulders as large as trees. The Mexican Annals of Cuauhtitlan describe how a cosmic catastrophe was accompanied by a hail of stones.

Excerpts from ZetaTalk on Firestorms
These fire storms are caused by reactions of atmospheric gasses to the turmoil going on. Petrocarbons are in essence created, due to the flashes of lightning and intense heat due to passage over open volcanoes, and these petrocarbons rain down, afire, at times.
Excertps from Worlds in Collision, Naptha
by Velikovsky, pp 53- 55

Crude petroleum is composed of two elements, carbon and hydrogen. The inorganic theory (of the origin of petroleum states that) hydrogen and carbon were brought together in the rock formations of the earth under great heat and pressure. The tails of comets are composed mainly of carbon and hydrogen gases. Lacking oxygen, they do not burn in flight, but the inflammable gases, passing through an atmosphere containing oxygen, will be set on fire, binding all the oxygen available at the moment. The descent of a sticky fluid which came earthward and blazed with heavy smoke is recalled in the oral and written traditions of the inhabitants of both hemispheres.

Popol-Vuh, the sacred book of the Mayas, narrates "People were drowned in a sticky substance raining from the sky .. and then there was a great din of fire above their heads". The entire population of the land was annihilated. A similar account is preserved in the Annals of Cuauhtitlan. The age which ended in the rain of fire was called "the sun of fire-rain"

In Siberia, the Voguls carried down through the centuries and millennia this memory. "God sent a sea of fire upon the earth. In the East Indies, the aboriginal tribes relate that in the remote past "water of fire" rained from the sky. With very few exceptions, all men died. The (Egyptian) papyrus Ipuwer describes this consuming fire. "Gates, columns, and walls are consumed by fire. The sky is in confusion". The papyrus says that this fire almost exterminated mankind.

Excertps from Worlds in Collision, Boiling Earth and Sea
by Velikovsky, pp 91-92
The Mexican sacred book, Popol-Vuh, the Manuscript Cakchiquel, the Manuscript Troano all record how the mountains in every part of the Western Hemisphere simultaneously gushed lava. .. The rivers steamed, and even the bottom of the sea boiled here and there. The Zend-Avesta says "The sea boiled, all the shores of the ocean boiled, all the middle of it boiled".
The traditions of the Indians (also) retain the memory of this boiling of the water in river and sea. The tribes of British Columbia tell: "Great clouds appeared .. and such a great heat came, that finally the water boiled. People jumped into the streams and lakes to cool themselves, and died". On the North Pacific coast of America the tribes insist that the ocean boiled: "It grew very hot .. many animals jumped into the water to save themselves, but the water began to boil". The Indians of the Southern Ute tribe in Colorado record in their legends that the rivers boiled.

Jewish tradition, as preserved in the rabbinical sources, declares that the mire at the bottom of the Sea of Passage was heated. Hesiod in his Theogony, relating the upheaval caused by a celestial collision, says: "The huge earth groaned .. A great part of the huge earth was scorched by the terrible vapor and melted as tin melts when heated by man's art .. or as iron, which is hardest of all things, is softened by glowing fire in mountain glens".
Excerpts from ZetaTalk on Tidal Wave

Where the Earth, dragged by its core, is shifting into a new, albeit temporary, alignment with the giant comet, its waters resist greatly. Thus the waters slosh over the nearby land, in the direction opposite to the shift. This is lessened by a tendency of the waters directly under the giant comet to rise up to meet the comet. The waters heap up, in what appear to be giant waves. This tends to lessen the sloshing over a shoreline on the comet side, but has no effect on the water's movement on the dark side of the Earth.

Excertps from Worlds in Collision, The Tide
by Velikovsky, pp 70- 75
The slowing down or stasis of the earth in its rotation would cause a tidal recession of water toward the poles, but the celestial body near by would disturb this poleward recession, drawing the water toward itself. The traditions of many peoples persist that seas were torn apart and their water heaped high and thrown upon the continents.

The traditions of the people of Peru tell that for a period of time the sun was not in the sky, and then the ocean left the shore and with a terrible din broke over the continent. The Choctaw Indians of Oklahoma relate: "The earth was plunged in darkness for a long time". Finally a dark light appeared in the north, "but it was mountain-high waves, rapidly coming nearer". According to the Lapland epic, after the sea-wall fell on the continent, gigantic waves continued to roll and dead bodies were dashed about in the dark waters.
The Hebrew story of the passage of the sea (relates that) the bottom of the sea was uncovered, the waters were driven apart and heaped up like walls in a double tide. The Sepuagint translation of the Bible says that the water stood "as a wall", and the Koran, referring to this event, says "like mountains". In the old rabbinical literature it is said that the water was suspended as if it were "Glass, solid and massive".

Excertps from Strangers Among Us, The Shift
by Ruth Montgomery, pp 228-230
The event itself will occur in the twinkling of an eye, as the earth slurps onto its side. In daylight areas, the sun will seem to stand still overhead. Those who are capable of reaching safety will see the earth's surface tremble, shudder, and in some places become a sea of boiling water as the oceans pour upon the land. ... Picture a giant wave, higher than a ten story building, racing toward shore. Ferocious winds will howl across the land. The stars will seem to swing giddily in the heavens. As dawn breaks the sun will seemingly rise from the wrong place on the horizon.

Excertps from Mary's Message to the World, The Coming Changes
by Annie Kirkwood, pp 2-3

As the world turns and changes direction, many natural occurrences will be deemed disasters. Mountains will move, seas will be upturned; new lands will come out of the ocean, some of the land which is now inhabited will be inundated and returned to the ocean floor to be allowed to renew. These natural disasters have already started, but in the future they will occur more often and with increasing violence.

ZetaTalk: Personal Decisions, Note: written Mar 15, 2002, http://www.zetatalk.com/transfor/t122.htm

We have predicted that mankind in the main will go into the pole shift unaware. Most of the world has no access to the media, or the Internet, and relies on the senses of seers within their culture or their own intuition. As prophets have emerged over the years, warning of the coming earth changes, other cultures such as Africa have also been rich in their own folklore, though the West has been unaware of this. The indians of South American, the tribes of Borneo, the Australian Aborigines, all have their seers and prophets of old. You are aware of the Hopi warnings, the Red Sky story, but this is just a small part of the underground lore among the American Indian. Most hearing at this time, or even in the recent past, about the coming changes are not planning any action at all. As astonishing as this may seem, this is because of a predictable set of steps the thinking process goes through.

1. The first thought is that action should be taken. This requires health, resources, and teammates. Should the individuals have this, in youth, energy, the ability to travel, and others of like mind, they make plans. Should the individual not have this, in that they are in poor health, old and tired, or blocked from travel due to finances or responsibilities, they move to the next step.

2. The next thought is what to do in the event the warnings are true. For those trapped, by either inability to move or finances, the conclusion is either death or slow debility. Should the individual be strong enough to consider the warnings affecting their immediate locale, and concluding that life would be horrendous afterwards, they subconsciously decide to allow death to overtake them and their loved ones. This is no different than the decision that those beset with cancer or the final stages of a debilitating disease make - they go with the flow. Should the individual be weak, frightened at the thought, they move to the next step.

3. The next step is denial, and this takes many forms. Denial is usually loudly shouting down the offending message, or ignoring it. In any case, it is put aside. Once put aside, the individual moves to the next step.

4. Distraction is the final and lingering step that those in denial take. Work, play, overeating, overexercising, or getting drunk or dopey. Taking up religions, deciding that saving the local song-birds is the most important thing that one could be involved in, whatever can consume the consciousness.
If a quiet resignation to death is not taken, will a frantic running about after false promises occur? This is unlikely to happen, in spite of the plans of the Hazelwood crowd who hoped to reap millions if not billions from the public due to their panic. Those in step 1 who have funds will make their own plans, and if they have no funds, will be of no interest to the ilk of Hazelwood. Those in step 2, who have decided that nothing much can be done and they must resign themselves to the inevitable, will not send Hazelwood funds. Nor will they run into the arms of strangers. They will, if they have religion or poetry in their lives, rely on this heavily. Music and poetry may have a renaissance, an upsurge, as adoption of orphans and the underprivileged. Love may have a blooming going into the shift, as it ought, those with great love in their hearts responding to the realization that little else matters.

ZetaTalk: Melting Pot, Note: written May 15, 1997. http://www.zetatalk.com/transfor/t65.htm

Early on after its discovery as a large land mass relatively un-populated and rich in resources, the Americas became the target of hungry immigrants. Protected from discovery earlier by the vast oceans on either side, the Americas had remained the land of the American Indian with only an occasional lost straggler arriving by boat from other lands. Unlike the acquisitive values forming the base of European society, the American Indian did not plunder the land and its resources, but lived in great harmony with nature and considered themselves the guests of nature rather than the owners of nature. Thus, to the Europeans, the Americas looked like land and resources for the taking. The rush was on, and has not stopped, and the general notion of immigrating to America, to the land of opportunity, has spread around the world so that all countries have this impression of the Americas - go there and get rich!
Immigrants are characterized primarily by their ability to initiate action, to be activists rather than pacifists. In their native country, all experience food shortages or repression, but not all pick up and leave home, friends, family, and familiarity! During the early years when the great melting pot was forming, many immigrants could anticipate never seeing family and friends again, or even hearing from them by the rare letter that made the distance without being lost or destroyed. Thus the early immigrants were courageous as well as activists, and were capable of operating independently. America is the nation that involves itself in other nation’s affairs because of the genetic makeup of its immigrants. Because of the initial rush toward riches, the attitude of most Americans is that nothing is impossible but only requires action.

Differences, rather than conformity, are the rule in America, due to the vast mixture of races and cultures in American cities. Most cultural mixing can result in explosive confrontations, synergy of ideas, or both. In the case of Arabs and Israelis, explosive confrontations are the result. In the case of cultural and racial mixing in America - both results have occurred. America is the land of violence, statistically holding some of the highest rates in violent crimes. America holds its lead as the nation where the vast majority of patents issue from in great part because of the attitude of its immigrants, who are by their genetic nature exploratory and persistent, but also because the cultural mix encourages tolerance of new ideas! Thus the great melting pot has fostered a result few anticipated, a synergy that is by its nature a leader in ideas and a champion for democratic rule. For mankind, the melting pot has proved to be a success.

Guns, http://www.zetatalk.com/info/tinfo13k.htm

First, there is nothing wrong with defending yourself, your loved ones, or other innocents, against real threats to life and property. We should all "give until it hurts" in so far as sharing our resources goes, but that does not mean that we ought to lay down like lambs and let marauding criminals take what ever they please - including our lives. Next, let me say that as a military historian of the Cheyenne Indians, I can tell you that even these skilled warriors made the cardinal error of depending on their animals (in this case dogs) to warn them of intrusions into their camps. This, in spite of the fact that they knew that on their own raids, they were able to get past the dogs and steal horses (the usual object of Plains Indian raiding).

The idea of using geese as sentries is hopelessly inadequate. And when the geese begin to raise the alarm, then what? Lock the door? Yell "please go away"? I suggest that guns in the home be kept in a gun safe, with trigger locks as well. I suggest that every adult be proficient with a battle rifle and pistol. We talk about skills. Here's one: I can put a round of .30-06 tracer about a foot from someone's head at 300 meters. That will get his attention. Showing an aggressor that you have the capability and willingness to kill him may well spare you from having to do so. Do I value the lives and well-being of my family more than that of strangers with criminal intentions? You bet I do. A dead man can't be of much service to others.

FROM OAHSPE
OAHSPE, FIRST BOOK OF GOD, BEGINNING IN CHAPTER XXIV
THE FIRST BIBLE OF GUATAMA (AMERICA).--BEING OF EAWAHTAH, A MAN CHOSEN BY GOD FOR THE CHILDREN OF GUATAMA.

IN Guatama, in the Middle Kingdom, by the sea of So-ci-a-pan, came down from heaven, Gitchee, the Creator, the World-Maker, Manito! With silence, speaking in the soul of things. He said: Speak, O earth! Have eyes, O earth! Have ears, O earth! Behold Me, your Maker!

Man said: Here am I, O Gitchee! The Creator looked, and lo and behold, the I'hins of Guatama stood before Him, the little people, white and yellow. Gitchee (God) said: Because thou hast answered Me in faith, O earth, thy ong-wee (talking animals) shall be called I'hin. Thus was named the first talkers; men with mouths for words; ears for words.
Then Gitchee (God) called the I'hins together, and said they were good; even the handsomest of all created creations. And He commanded them to marry, male and female, and beget heirs.

And they obeyed God's commands; but the dumb earth cast clouds upward, and blinded the ways of the I'hins, and they strayed away from the mounds, and came to black druks, which speak not; have no words; being dumb like the black mud of the earth where they burrowed.

In the darkness of the earth the I'hins mingled with the druks, and lo and behold, a second born speaking animal (ong'wee, or Indian) stood upon the earth, tall, and red, and strong, swift and handsome. Gitchee (God) said: I blame thee not, O I'hin! I saw the darkness; saw thy straits! But never more shalt thou dwell with druks, nor with the new red-born, those with faces like new copper. Call them I'hua; for they shall be protectors over My chosen, the I'hins, forever. The I'hua shall drive away the baugh and mieu and great serpents, and all man-slaying beasts; for I will make mighty nations out of the seed of the I'huans.

The first I'huan's name was O-e-du, and his wife's name was Uh-na; and they begat Owena and Dan and Shu-sa, but they had no more heirs. At a time soon after, the second man, whose name was Ka-Ka-och and whose wife's name was Wees, begat Somma, and Pan-ah, and And these were the first tribes of I'huans in the land of Guatama (after the flood), and they dwelt together, marrying and begetting offspring, dwelling in peace. And the I'hins taught them in all things, so they became an honor on the earth and a glory unto the Creator; but they were mixed so together that one tribe had no preference over another. So, by commandment of God, they were called the tribe of Oedukakaooh, of the middle kingdom, Waneopanganosah (Central America).
In the valley of Owak, by the river Ho-e-jon-wan, Gitchee (Jehovih) created another tribe called Bak-Haw-ugh, and to the north of them, in the mountains Mein-how-an-go-to-bah; and their tribes commingled, and Gitchee (God) named them, Jesson, son of Rakaooh, married Wepon, daughter of Bakhawughmeiuhowangotobah, and they begat Sto-gil-bak, and he begat Kom, and he begat See, and she married Ban, son of the tribe Rakaooh, and Ban's first-born son's name was La-ban-a-see.

And Labanasee was born in su'is of the second order, and could hear the voice of the Creator, Gitchee, the Great Spirit. And the Voice remained with Labanasee during his life-time, which was one hundred and twenty and five years, when he died. And the Voice descended to Labanasee's son, Hootlabanasee, who lived one hundred and one years, and he died, and the Voice descended to his son, Thus were represented the eighteen tribes of Gitchee's chosen amongst the I'huans who should become everlasting heirs to the Voice.

And God said unto Ara: Arise and go forth; my hand will steer thee. So Ara rose up and departed by the hand of the Creator, and came to the valley of Owg, broad and sweet-smelling, full of health-giving food and air and water. And there came with Ara into Owg one thousand men, women and children; and they built a city and called it Eftspan, signifying place of beauty.
And these took the name of the tribe of Ara, the which name survived one thousand seven hundred and fifty years. And their people were tens of thousands.

After the tribe of Ara lost the Voice, there was raised up Sho-shone, of the tribes of Sto-gil-bak. And Gitchee raised His hand before Sho-shone and pointed the way, and Sho-shone departed out of the country of Tabachoozehbakkankan and came to Owg, and took to wife Hisam, daughter of Ooeguffanauha, and they begat E-a-ron-a-ki-mutz, a son of great beauty and strength, a swift runner.

And the voice of Gitcheemonihtee (Son of Jehovih) came to Earonakimutz and remained with him during his natural lifetime, which was ninety years. And to his son, Fassawanhootaganganearonakimutz, and thence to his son, Monagoamyazazhufassawan-hootaganganearonakimutz.

And Monag inhabited the regions of the plains of Yiteatuazow (Arkansas), and his people became mighty in cities and agriculture. For four thousand years the Voice of the All Father remained with the regular succession of the heirs of Monag, but their names and their cities' names became so long that no man could speak them or write them.

So Gitchee (Jehovih) raised up Honga, son of Ab, of the tribe of Oedu, of the land of the Middle Kingdom. And Honga went into the mountains of Ghiee (Rocky or Eagle Mountains), sloping to the east.

Gitchee (God) spake to Honga, saying: Thou shalt take Oebe for thy wife; out of thy seed will I raise up a greater tribe than all other tribes; and thy first-born son shall have thy name; and thy son's son shall be called Honga also; and thy son's son's son, and so on forever. Then asked Honga, saying: What if I have no son, but only daughters? Or of my son or my son's son, they cease to have a son, but only Then spake Gitchee, saying: The wife's first daughter. So it came to pass, in course of time, Honga married and begat heirs; and the Voice of the Great Spirit remained with the tribes of Honga, and it came to pass that he who heard the Voice, who was always the chief high prophet for the tribe, was called Hoanga; but the peoples themselves were called ong'wee, the same that hath endured to this day, and is called Indian.
And the generations of Honga were called, --first, Honga; second, Honga; third, Honga; and so on. And this was the beginning of the And the land became full of cities, from the east to the west, and from the north to the south, and the people dwelt in peace, tribe with tribe, the world over. Then came the of evil, I'tura (Ahura), sowing evil in the temples and on the altars. Yea, with a false tongue and cunning came he, before the prophets, stealing their eyes away, stealing their ears away, holding up his hand, saying: It is the Great Spirit's hand.

And I'tura obsessed the nations and tribes of men to worship him; infatuating them with the stories of far-off countries, and the glory of kings and queens. And he set on foot a war of plunder; brought ten thousand times ten thousand evil spirits to aid and abet mortals in war.
And I'tura, the God of evil, taught mortals to flatten the head, to make prophets, and, lo and behold, the land of Guatama became a land of seers and prophets and conjurers, seeking evil for sake of evil; consulting the spirits of the dead for war and for earthly glory in blood and death.
Chapter XXV
THESE, then, were the principal kings of that day: Lanoughl, king of Eboostakagan, a city of tens of thousands, in the valley of Aragaiyistan. Lanoughl was the son of Toogaoogahaha, who was the son of Eviphraiganakukuwonpan, who was the son of Oyoyughstuhaipawehaha, who built the canal (oseowa) of Papaeunugheutowa, which extended from the sea of Hoola'hoola'pan (Lake Superior) to the plains of Aigonquehanelachahoba (Texas), near the sea of Sociapan, where dwelt Heothahoga, king of kings, whose temple was roofed with copper and silver. Of ten thousand boats (canoes) was the canal, extending along, carrying copper and silver from the north regions to the cities of the valley of Hapembapanpan, and to the cities of the mountains of Oaramgallachacha, and to Ghiee, home of Honga the first, the mightiest of red men.

Next in power to Lanoughl was Tee-see-gam-ba-o-rakaxax, king of the city of Chusanimbapan, in the plains of Erezehoegammas (Central America), with twelve tributary cities extending along the river Akaistaazachahaustomakmak, to the mountains of Nefsaidawowotchachaeengamma.

And the third king in power was Chiawassaibakanaizhoo, of the city of Inuistahahahacromcromahoesuthaha, and to him were tributary seven and twenty cities and their kings.

Chiawassaibakanalszhoo was the son of Tenehamgameralhuchsukzhaistomaipowwassaa, who was son of Thusaiganganenosatamakka, who built the great east canal, the Oseowagallaxacola, in the rich valley of Tiedaswonoghassie, and through the land of Seganeogalgalyaluciahomaahomhom *, where dwelt the large men and women, the Ongewahapackaka-ganganecolabazkoaxax.

The fourth great king of Guatama was Hoogalomarakkadanapanwowwow, king of the city of Itussakegollahamganseocolabah, which had seventeen tributary cities of tens of thousands of people. And his kingdom extended from sea to sea in the Middle Kingdom (Panama). Here was the temple of Giloff, with a thousand columns of polished mahogany, and with a dome of copper and silver. And within Giloff dwelt the Osheowena, the oracle of the Creator, for two thousand years.

The fifth great king was Penambatta, king of the city of Liscararzakyatasagangan, on the High Heogula Ophat (Tennessee), with thirty tributary cities of tens of thousands of inhabitants. Here was situate the school and college of great learning, the Ahazahohoputan, where were taught tens of thousands of students. Penambatta was learned, and had traveled far, devoting his life to imparting knowledge. He had six thousand attendants, besides six hundred and forty officers.

The sixth great king was Hoajab, son of Teutsangtusicgammooghsapanpan, founder of the kilns of Wooboohakhak. Hoajab's capital city was Farejonkahomah, with thirty-three tributary cities, of tens of thousands of inhabitants, of the plains of He'gow (South-eastern Ohio).
The seventh great king was Hiroughskahogamsoghtabakbak, and his capital city was Hoesughsoosiamcholabengancobanzhohahhah, situate in the plains of Messogowanchoola, and extending eastward to the mountains of Gonzhoowassicmachababdohuyapiasondrythoajaj, including the valleys of the river Onepagassathalalanganchoochoo, even to the sea, Poerthawowitcheothunacalclachaxzhloschistacombia (Lake Erie). Hiro had forty and seven tributary cities of tens of thousands of inhabitants.

Betwixt the great kings and their great capitals were a thousand canals, crossing the country in every way, from east to west and from north to south, so that the seas of the north were connected with the seas of the south. In kanoos the people traveled and carried the productions of the land in every way. Besides the canals mentioned, there were seven other great canals, named after the kings who built them, and they extended across the plains in many directions, but chiefly east and west.

These were: Oosgaloomaigovolobanazhooegollopan, and Halagazhapanpanegoochoo, and Fillioistagovonchobiassoso, and Anetiabolalachooesanggomacoalobonbakkak, and Ehabadangonzhooeportalicha-boggasa-megitcheepapa, and Onepapollagassayamganshuniatedoegonachoogangitiavatoo somchooibalgadgad, and Hachooaolagobwotchachabakaraxexganhammazhooelapanpan.

In those days the kings and learned men put their hearts to work building canals and finding places and roadways for them, and herein laid the great glory and honor of man at that time.

And God (Gitchee) perceiving the virtue and wisdom of men, sent His angels to teach man the mystery of canal-making; to teach man to compound clay with lime and sand, to hold water; to teach man to find the gau, the level, and the force of water. The angels also taught man to make pots and kettles; to burn the clay in suitable shape; to find copper ore and silver ore, and gold and lead for the floors of the oracle chambers, clean and white shining, suitable for angels.

And they taught man how to soften copper like dough; how to harden copper like flint rock, for axes and mattocks for building canals; taught man how to work the ore in the fire and melt it; and how to make lead into sheets, like cloth.

Taught man to till the soil and grow wheat and corn; taught the women how to grind it and make bread. Taught the hunters how to slay the lion and the tiger and the mastodon, the HOGAWATHA, THE ROOTING ANIMAL OF WISDOM.
Besides all these inhabited regions there lay another country to the far west, fifty days' journey, the land of Goeshallobok, a place of sand and salt, and hot, boiling waters. And this region was a twenty days' journey broad, east and west, and fifty days' journey broad, north and south.
In the High North lay the kingdom of Olegalla, the land of giants, the place of yellow rocks and high spouting waters. Olegalla it was who gave away his kingdom, the great city of Powafuchawowitchahavagganeabba, with the four and twenty tributary cities spread along the valley of Anemoosagoochakakfuela; gave his kingdom to his queen Minneganewashaka, with the yellow hair, long, hanging down. And the queen built temples, two hundred and seventy, and two adjacent to the spouting waters, where her people went every morning at sunrise, singing praise to Gitchee, Monihtee, the Creator.

South of Olegalla lay the kingdom of Onewagga, around about the sea of Chusamangaobe hassahgana-wowitchee, in the valley of Mauegobah, which is to say, CONSECRATED PLACE OF THE VOICE, a kingdom of forty cities. Here reigned for twenty generations the line of kings called Wineohgushagusha, most holy and wise, full of manliness and strong limbed. On the eastward of the lake lay the Woohootaughnee, the ground of games and tournaments, where came tens of thousands every autumn to exhibit their strength, carrying horses and oxen, and running and leaping, running races with the trained aegamma. And to the strongest and the swiftest, the king gave prizes of handsome damsels, with straight limbs and shapely necks, proud, who loved to be awarded handsome, mighty husbands.

Next south lay the kingdom of Himallawowoaganapapa, rich in legends of the people who lived here before the flood; a kingdom of seventy cities and six great canals coursing east and west, and north and south, from the Ghiee Mountain, in the east, to the west mountain, the Yublahahcolaesavaganawakka, the place of the king of bears, the Eeughohabakax (grizzly). And to the south, to the Middle Kingdom, on the deserts of Geobiathaganeganewohwoh, where the rivers empty not into the sea, but sink in the sand, the Sonagallakaxax, creating prickly Thuazhoogallakhoomma, shaped like a pear.

Chapter XXVI
1. I'TURA, God of evil, dweller in hell, looked over the broad earth; saw the land of Guatama, the mighty races of I'huans. And his mouth watered, like a lion's when a lamb standeth before him. I'tura called his legions, tens of thousands of drujas, devils from the regions of hell: Come, he said, I have found a rich feeding place. Behold, I will make my kingdoms wider; spread out the walls of hell and gather in this great harvest of innocent souls.
Then came I'tura's hosts of evil, ten times tens of thousands, for such is the nature of spirits and men; call for ten thousand to do a righteous work, and only a hundred come; call for ten thousand to do an unholy work, and behold, ten times ten thousand come. They said to I'tura:
How shall we do? Where strike in? And I'tura, wise in wickedness, said: Go to the temples, the places of shining copper and silver, to the oracles, and obsess them, every one. And when the kings and the learned men come to consult Gitchee, my deadly enemy, assume ye to be Him, and answer them with lies and all manner of unprofitable speculation; turn them upside down; make them curse Gitchee; make them ask for I'tura. And when madness cometh on them, follow ye them to their sleeping couches and whisper in their souls that their neighbors are their deadly enemies. Incite them to war and to all manner of deeds of death; and when they overturn each other's kingdoms and houses, and their dead lie like ashes over all the land, gather ye in their distracted spirits to fill my mighty kingdom with Gitchee's harvest!
Then answered the hosts of I'tura (who was known in heaven as Most mighty God, what are thy prizes, for the souls of men, for souls to extend thy heavenly kingdom?
I'tura answered, saying: According to the number of subjects any angel bringeth me, so will I exalt him to be a captain, or a general, or a Lord, or a God, and he shall have a sub-kingdom in my heavenly regions, with thousands of servants to do his bidding.
With that the evil God and his evil spirits fell to work, night and day; and lo and behold, the fair land of Guatama was overspread with human blood. Fell war spread along throughout all the mighty kingdoms; kingdom against kingdom; city against city; man against man.
And the holy temples were pulled down or burnt; and the canals broken and wasted; the cities on fire, and the fields laid desolate. Neither grew there any grain; the grinding mills of the women were silent, like the dead stretched over all the fields!
Into the forest, afar off, fled the women with the children, hungry, weeping, starving. And the cities went down; the nations went down; the tribes of men were broken up; only remnants here and there remained. And where had been great and mighty peoples, lay only heaps of ruins, past the power of man to rebuild.
Then looked down from the highest heaven, the Creator, the Great Spirit; saw the work of desolation; saw I'tura at his bloody work.
And the Great Spirit cried out with a loud voice, so that the earth and heaven shook with the power of His voice; sifted all things, as a woman sifteth meal. And He found one grain of corn not ground by the God of evil, found Honga! The tribes so fast sworn to the Great Spirit that the evil Gods' and evil spirits' words rolled off and took no hold on them.
The Great Spirit saw the tribes of Honga, they that stuck most to the I'hins, the sacred little people, white and yellow, oft marrying with them, thus preserving the stock to the Hand and Voice. And He called loud and long:
Honga! Honga! Honga! The Creator would not be put off with silence; called again: Honga! Honga! But He heard only His Own Voice resounding far; knew His mighty Power! Again He called: Honga! Honga! Honga!
In the first call, I'tura and his evil hosts ran away. In His second call, it was like spring-time, after heavy winter. And in the third call, it was like budding summer. And there came up a sprout of the seed of Honga, an I'huan; taller than any other man with a bright shining face of copper; shining as if all the destroyed temples glistened in his broad head.
And he spake, saying: Here, O Great Spirit, here am I! And the Great Spirit said: Who art thou, My Son? And he answered: I am Son of the Creator. Then asked the Great Spirit: Of what tribe? And he answered: My flesh is nothing; my genealogy is of the spirit. Of the I'hin my mother; of the I'huan my father.
Then said the Creator: For which reason, I name thee Eawahtah, spirit and flesh even balanced, best of men. Come thou with Me; walk along with Me; thou shalt re-instate the tribes of men; deliver them out of darkness; make them worshipful.
Eawahtah said: I am Thy servant, O Great Spirit. What shall call Thee, that the tribes of men be no longer distrustful? Then answered the Creator: Call Me after the wind, O Eawahtah!
Eawahtah said: How after the wind? The Great Spirit said: Come with Me, My Son. Then Eawahtah walked along and came to a place where the wind blew in the leaves.
The Creator said: Tell Me, My Son, what saith the wind in the leaves? And answered Eawahtah: E! Then the Creator took Eawahtah to the big sea water, and asked: What saith the wind in the water, My Son?
And Eawahtah answered: Go! Then took the Creator Eawahtah to the high crags, the rocks above the clouds, piercing, where the wind whistled; and He said: What saith the wind, My Son? And Eawahtah answered: Quim!
And the Great Spirit said: Call Me Egoquim, O My Son. I am three in One; the earth, and all that is in the earth and on the earth, and all the stars and moon and sun; they are one of My members. And the air above the earth, the Atontea, is another member of My Person. And higher yet; in the high place above the air, is the ether; the great penetrator; and that is the third member of My Person. I am everywhere, far and near; all things thine eye seeth; all things thine ear heareth are of Me and in Me.
Whatsoever is one with Me hath no hard labor. Behold the flowers of the field; I color them. Behold the ant and the honeybee; I lead them; the bird I teach how to build.
Man alone is stubborn, setting up ways of his own. O that he could learn to be one with Me! To move and labor with Me! Then spake Eawahtah, saying: Holy Egoquim! I will go and teach man, give him Thy words; make him understand.
Egoquim said: For that labor called I thee forth, made thee tall and handsome, with strong limbs, and broad shoulders. Come, then, My Son, I will go with thee; into all the lands; amongst all the scattered tribes; thy voice shall be My Voice. So near thee will I stand, when thou openest thy mouth to speak, fear not, I will give thee words; thou shalt not err.
Eawahtah inquired: What shall I say; how teach the sons and daughters of men; give me a synopsis?
Egoquim answered Eawahtah, saying:
Chapter XXVII
ONE Great Person, even Egoquim, Creator and Ruler over all in heaven and earth.
Him shalt thou have and no other God, nor Lord, nor idol, nor man, nor angel, to worship, forever!
Him shalt thou love above all things in heaven above, or on the earth, or in the waters of the earth!
And thou shalt teach him to thy children, and command them to teach Him to their children, and so on forever!
And thou shalt swear against all other Gods, and Lords, and idols, to serve them not forever! And the same to thy children, and to their children after them, forever!
And this is the first Egoquim law.
And thou shalt deal unto all men, and women and children, as justly and as kindly as to thine own mother, out of whose breast thou wert fed when thou wert helpless and of no strength.
Teaching this to thy children, and to their children after them, forever.
And this is the second Egoquim law.
And to the sick and helpless; to the stranger and the man that cometh afar; to the widow who is destitute; to the child that hath no father; thou shalt be both father and mother to them; and take them into thy house and feed them; and give them skins and cloth to wear; and if they be lost, thou shalt go with them and show them the way.
Commanding these things unto thy children, and to their children after them, forever!
And this is the third Egoquim law.
And thou shalt not tell lies; nor speak falsely against any man, nor woman, nor child; nor break thy word of promise, even though death come upon thee to induce thee otherwise. Unchangeable as the setting and rising sun shall be the word of thy mouth!
And thou shalt command this to thy children, and to their children after them, forever!
And this is the fourth Egoquim law.
And thou shalt not take and possess that which is another's; nor suffer thy children to do so, nor their children after them, forever.
Which is the fifth Egoquim law.
And thou shalt respect the times of woman; and when she is bearing unto thee, thou shalt not lie with her; nor give her heavy labor, nor angry words, nor fret her; but be obedient to her, doing whatsoever she asketh thee to do, for it is her time, and she is thy queen.
Teaching this to thy young men and to thy young women, and to theirs that come after them, forever; for their young are begotten of Me, and I will have them shapely, and strong, and brave!
Which is the sixth Egoquim law.
Thou shalt labor six days, but on the seventh day it is the moon's day, and thou shalt not labor, nor hunt, nor fish, but go to the altar of thy Creator and dance and sing before Me; and sit in silence to hear My words, which I speak into the souls of men, and of women and children.
Teaching this to thy children, and to their children that come after them, forever.
Which is the seventh Egoquim law.
Thou shalt restore the rites and ceremonies of and on the part I swear thee which thou shalt not restore; which is: Thou shalt not flatten the head to make a seer, a Haonga, to drive the judgment of the brain away to the prophetic regions.
Teaching Which is the eighth Egoquim law.
Then rose up Eawahtah, Son of Egoquim, saying: I am Thy servant! Lead Thou me, for I am going in Thy name, even to the end of the world!
When thus spake Eawahtah, Son of the Great Spirit, a Light came over him, dazzling, brilliant, lighting the way, showing him the way.
And so great was the spirit on Eawahtah, that when he came to the river, he rose up like an angel, sailed over and landed safely on the Neither knew he whither he was going; knew not the places of the scattered, destroyed peoples.
And the angels of Egoquim went before him; went into the forests and valleys, calling to the souls of the suffering, starving, dying, saying to them in their despair:
Egoquim, the Mighty, is coming! His Son! Behold Him! He holdeth the keys of Yaton'te, the heavenly hunting ground. Come forth from your hiding! Come forth, O My beloved! It is your Heavenly Father calling.
And the women heard! The little children, with sore, bleeding feet! The proud, brave men gave ear! They said: Why do we fight? Why Then came Eawahtah; came first to the kingdom of Took-shein, and to his queen, Che-guh, in the land Anagoomahaha, the flat-heads. Then spake Took-shein, saying: To me the Great Spirit hath spoken; told me all the words thou hast. I know all thou hast said is true. Then spake Che-guh, saying: To me spake Gitchee, the Great Spirit. True are all thy words, O Eawahtah. By thee will all the scattered tribes be gathered together. Many tribes will there be of the red man; Egoquim will be the centre, the Mighty Spirit!
Then spake Eawahtah, saying to his good host and hostess: Your place shall be the centre; from your place I will shoot out around about, always returning, bringing in followers.
Whilst they thus talked, a Light came above them. Look, said Took-shein: It is the hand of Egoquim! Look, said Che-guh: It is the Voice of Gitchee! Then spake Eawahtah, seeing more clearly, raised up expressly: It is a ship of fire coming down from heaven! I hear the voices of the angel of Egoquim, the Mighty!
3Then Eawahtah went and stood betwixt Took-shein and Che-guh, holding their hands, so the Voice of Egoquim could speak plainly; so he could hear.
Yea, My beloved! I am with you! Behold, My worlds are wide and many. When My back is turned, evil Gods come to steal My children; tell them lies to win them; tell them they are My Sons come to save them!
Hard is the fate of those that worship one God only; but they are Mine. I look around at times; I set the evil Gods flying. Be of strong heart, O My beloved! Many races will come and go on these lands. But the red man shall possess it: inhabit it far and near. Then shall come another evil God *, to flay and destroy My sons and daughters, to cover all the lands over with pure blood. Then will I come again and rout the evil God, raise up My sons and daughters, full of glory.
From far over the water will I bring their kindred (Jews), who worship none born of woman; a wise speaking people. A people that war not; who kill not off weaker nations. I will come in the Mohawk (Tenonachi), and the Mohegan (Hoochiquis); My hand shall reach around the earth in that day. I will chase away all Gods and Saviors born of woman. Only the Great Spirit shall all men worship.
Go forth, My son; build wide My foundation; in this land will I found My earthly kingdom.

Then upward rose the ship of heaven; and Eawahtah buckled on his traveling slippers; bade good-by to Took-shein; filled his pockets with the bread of Che-guh; kissed her hand good-by, and started.

For many years traveled Eawahtah, over all the regions of Guatama; teaching, gathering together, swearing the people ever after to be firm to the Great Spirit: made them swear solemn oaths that never more would they listen to any God save the Creator; made them swear they would never be caught by another cunning Savior, like I'tura, whose people delight in war.

Into villages gathered Eawahtah the frightened tribes, and taught them writing and engraving; taught them the secret name of the Great The Creator saw the great work of Eawahtah; saw the people gathered together in tens of thousands of places. Then spake the Creator Forty mighty nations shalt thou found, O My son; and every nation shall be an independent nation; but all the nations shall be united into a brotherhood of nations, as ONE mighty people, and that one shall be called O-pah-E-go-quim, signifying ONE. For when I come in kosmon, My people shall have many states, like unto thine, and their combination shall be called UNION, signifying ONE. Build thou a model for them, O Eawahtah. For, though when they come they shall overthrow thy people in the earth, the angels of thy holy ones shall come and purge them of their Savior, and make them clean in My sight.

Then Eawahtah made the nations; united them into one mighty people, and called them the nations of Opahegoquim. And they planted the country over with corn-fields, and dwelt in peace.

END OF EAWAHTAH'S HISTORY.

Chapter XXVIII

God said: Be wise, O man, in the words of thy God. My records come not up out of the ground, nor from the books of mortals.
I open my heavenly libraries, and find my living sons and daughters who once trod the earth.
Their light I recast down again to mortals in a stream of fire, and lo, my words are rewritten.
Search thou for the evidence of my footsteps on the earth; find the people who stand by the Creator, the All One, God of All! Who can shake their faith, or feed them with thy story of a Savior born of woman?
Hearken to the voice of the millions of Chine'ya and Vind'yu, and the remnants of the Algonquins! Their bibles are a power to this day. They will not fall down and worship as thou decreest; they know that Jehovih is mightier than thou.
Be thou considerate of all the races of men, and their doctrines and rites and ceremonies.
Behold, I raise up the nations of the earth in mine own way. According to the times and conditions of mortals, so do I deal unto them from my heavenly kingdoms.

Thou hast tried on all my people, to convert them, but hast failed utterly. Behold, I come now with a new book; and they will accept it from my hand.
Herein do I prophesy to thee, beforehand, that thou shalt witness in time to come, that I, God of heaven and earth, have spoken.
Nor shalt thou say: Man of himself progresseth; and that such and such would come of a natural order.
In testimony of which I have left many peoples before thee, for hundreds of years. Thy natural order is laziness and uncleanness. Wherein thou art quickened in spirit, behold, it is the heavens upon thee that stirreth thee up.
Thou shalt not mistake the teaching of thy God; which was manifested the same in the ancient days as in this day: Which is, to worship thy Creator only; to bow not down to any other God nor Lord; to love thy neighbor, and to do good unto others with all thy wisdom and strength, having faith in the Almighty!
