... of transmitting to us correct or satisfactory information respecting the nations with which they were acquainted. The ecclesiastics who followed in their train, and from whom more might have been expected, actuated by a fierce bigotry, and eager only to elevate the symbol of their intolerance over the emblems of a rival priesthood, misrepresented the religious conceptions of the Indians, and exaggerated the bloody observances of the aboriginal ritual, as an apology, if not a justification, for their own barbarism and cruelty. They threw down the high altars of Aztec superstition, and consecrated to their own mummeries the solar symbols of the Peruvian temples. They burned the, pictured historical and mythological records of the, ...

The student of Chinese and Japanese religion and folklore soon discovers the mighty influence of Indian thought upon the Far-Eastern mind.

... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Venus In The Folklore Of The Indians Primitive peoples often are bound by inflexible customs and beliefs that date back hundreds of generations. The traditions of many primitive peoples speak of a "lower sky" in the past, a "larger sun," a swifter movement of the sun across the firmament, a shorter day that became longer after the sun was arrested on its path. World conflagration is a frequent motif in folklore. According to the Indians of the Pacific coast of North America the "shooting star" and the "fire drill" set the world aflame. In the ...

5. Casa Grande-Another Indian Astronomical Site [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History II:2 (Jun 1980) Home | Issue Contents Casa Grande-Another Indian Astronomical Site Ron Anjard The astronomical expertise of the ancient American Indian is becoming more understood. The most obvious evidence are the Medicine Wheels, best typified by the Wyoming Medicine Wheel and the Kivas of the southwestern United States, particularly of Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. Recently a very unusual marker- a pictography system for the noon summer solstice- was also found in Chaco Canyon. While visiting the Casa Grande ruins in southern Arizona in November 1978 I found another interesting example of Tamarind "megalithic astronomy." In all my research I had never seen this specific site ...

... Northwest Indian Myths of Catastrophe Vine Deloria I'd like to thank Richard Heinberg, the previous speaker, for proving that Western Civilization is composed of schizoid, paranoid, psychopathic killers! (Laughter) That saved me half an hour in my speech right there. Let's accept that premise and then we can talk about the wisdom of the gentle hunter-gathers in peace. I encountered Velikovsky's work shortly after Worlds in Collision and Ages in Chaos came out. I was then a geology students at the Colorado School of Mines and I would spend some class periods looking out the window at the hogback and Flatirons of the Front Range and half-heartedly listen to my professor explaining that these formations had risen ...

... Men living farther to the north and south saw the more or less distant fire-rain without experiencing much of it themselves. It is the American aborigines who supply the greater number these tales. At the time of the breakdown of the Tertiary satellite their forefathers lived in the northern and southern subtropical places of refuge. The Ntlakapamuk, or Thompson River Indians, a tribe of Salishan stock, now settling in the Thompson River region of British Columbia, say that in the time of their forefathers the waters rose to quench a Great Fire which raged in the world. The Muskwaki Indians, settling in Western Canada, have a myth that Kitche Manitou destroyed the world twice, first through a ...
