NEZ PERCE TRIBE
Many tribes originating in Canada migrated down the East Coast of what is now the United States. They were involved in all the wars of Canada, Holland, Spain, France, and Britain. Norse sailors explored and settled limited areas on the shores of Greenland and Canada. According to Norse folklore, violent conflicts with the indigenous population ultimately made the Norse abandon those settlements. France also started colonies in the coastal areas of Canada and in eastern America.
After Ponce de Leon of Spain sailed to Punta Gguada, Puerto Rico in 1513 with a crew of 200, including women and free blacks, he visited the area of what would be Florida. He later named it La Florida due to the flowers being in bloom, and it was also in the time period of the Christian “festival of flowers” at Easter. His first thought was that it was an island. The Spaniards introduced to the area cattle, horses, sheep, the Spanish language, and more. The horse, which the Indians had eaten into extinction 10,000 years before, was reintroduced into North America with the European explorers and into Florida in 1538.
One of the many paintings by Jacques le Moyne who accompanied the French to eastern North America in 1564. The name of La Florida was given to most eastern North America not just the present State of Florida. He also painted many beautiful flowers; such as “Poppies”:
The Seminole Indian Tribe is a good basic example for all the mingling and intermingling of the American Indian Tribes. The Seminole people are the descendants of the Creek people, and the Creek people are the descendants of the Cherokees and Comanche that the third president of the Republic of Texas, Mirabeau B. Lamar, wanted to remove. . . basically, the Cherokees. The Creek culture encompassed parts of Alabama, Georgia (Lamar’s home state), Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. The descendants of the Lamar era became the historic nations known as the Creeks, Cherokees, and also the Comanche.

The Creek Nation was created through a gradual process of assimilation. Remnants of the Yuchi, Apalachee, and Yemassee Tribes were absorbed by the Creeks after their defeats by the English. In the Southeast, there were the Chickasaw, the Cherokee, and the Choctaw, and everyone else was a Creek. The Creek Nation was a confederation of dozens of towns. The diversity of the tribe is reflected in the fact that it’s members spoke seven languages that were Muscogee, Hitchiti, Koasat, Alabama, Natchez, Yuchi, and Shawnee . . .the first five are dialects of Muskogean. The Seminole name is derived from the Creek word “simano-li” meaning “separating from” or “runaway”. When the Creeks came to Florida they were of Creeks or Muskogee derivation. In 1775, they were known as Seminole. See the following link to learn more about the Seminoles and their subsequent migrations which led to their becoming one nation.
SEMINOLES WEARING THE PATCHWORK FABRIC THEY DESIGNED
Black Legend Chief Billy Bowlegs-Leader of Florida Seminole Indian Wars
As early as 1689, African slaves fled from the South Carolina Low Country to Spanish Florida seeking freedom. Many black slaves would escape into swamps and join the Seminole Tribe and intermingle and intermarry with the Seminole. They were referred to as maroons. Historically, the Black Seminoles lived in distinct bands. Some were slaves of particular Seminole leaders, but they experienced more freedom than in white society, including the right to bear arms. They defended the Spanish settlers at St. Augustine. Spain ceded Florida to the United States in 1819. Later, the American Indians became slaves for cotton plantations while Indians also took slaves from other tribes.
Not all slaves escaping to the South found military service in St. Augustine to their liking. More escaped slaves sought refuge in wilderness areas in northern Florida where their knowledge of tropical agriculture – and resistance to tropical diseases – served them well. Most of the blacks who pioneered Florida were Gullah people who escaped from the rice plantations of South Carolina (and later from Georgia). As Gullah, they had developed an Afro-English based Creole language. They also retained an ethnic tradition from East Africa since the mid-1700’s.

The history of the 13,000,000 captured African slaves brought to North America to work on the plantations began long before the situation occurred. From the beginning of the European discovery of the American continents, Europeans were involved with slavery. . . not African slaves, but American Indian slaves. In addition to gold and silver, the Europeans found wealth in the slave trade. By the 15th Century, the slave trade was well established in Europe. Columbus captured and exported to Spain more American Indian slaves (about 5,000) than any other single individual. In the 17th Century, England became active in North America. While the English were more focused on obtaining land for colonists, they also engaged in the slave trade. In 1614, for example, English Captain Thomas Hunt captured 26 Wampanoag in what is now Massachusetts. The captives were then taken to Spain where they were sold as slaves. John Smith, the Commander at Jamestown, led slave raids into New England where he captured Wampanoag and Nauset who were then sold into slavery.
The American Indian in Europe died from disease and from the stress of being in a strange land. There are a few who made it back to North America. Some of these were reincorporated with their tribes. It is astonishing how vulnerable the American Indians were to diseases. . . perhaps it was because they wanted to stay within their own tribes and not mingle outside their tribes that this occurred. Time and time again, the American Indian’s health and immune systems were vulnerable to European diseases, and tribes became extinct or merged with other tribes and lost their identity.

One by one, the American Indian Nations were defeated. Tribes fought each other for buffalo and other territorial reasons. In the regions of present day southern Canada and the United States, survivors were gathered together and moved to specific areas called reservations. The ten largest U. S. Indian reservations are listed below according to a recent census.
RESERVATION POPULATION TRIBE STATE
Navajo Nation 300,500 Navajo Arizona/New Mexico/Utah
Osage 44,437 Osage Oklahoma
Yakama 3l,437 Yakima or Yakama Washington
Flathead 26,172 Bitterroot, Selish,Kooena & Montana
Wind River 23,250 Shoshone(Ute) & Arapaho Wyoming
Rosebud 20,762 Sicangu, Sioux or Oyate S Dakota/Tribes of Lakotas
Uintah & Ouray 19,182 Ute Utah & some in Colorado
Nez Perce * 17,959 More Nose Pendants * Idaho
Eastern Cherokee 16,000+ Cherokee N Carolina & a few in Oklahoma
Pine Ridge 15,510 Lakota N Dakota/S Dakota
Note: The Cheyenne were overpowered by the Pine Ridge Reservation.
* – Means “pierced nose” in French. They are pictured in the beginning of this article.
A Creek chief named Doublehead quoted this: “We are afraid if we part with any more of our lands the white people will not let us keep as much as will be sufficient to bury our dead”. More quotes can be found on

The many North American Tribes of Canada can be viewed on http://nations.com/canada/index.htm (use control + click). Some of these tribes are also in the United States; such as, the Moravians. They are a Christian tribe, and at one point in time, they hoped to make an Indian State situate in the area of the State of Ohio.
The Articles of Confederation and the Constitution were influenced, through Benjamin Franklin, by the American Indian, specifically the Iroquois Nation, including the Delaware and Susquehanna Tribes. Mr. Franklin noted that the political system of the Iroquois Nation was governed by a Council or advice from the sages, and there was no force. He stated there are no prisons, no officers to compel obedience, or inflict punishment. Hence, they study oratory and the best speaker has the most influence. Mr. Franklin also elaborated on their sense of courtesy in Council meetings and compared them to the raucous nature of the British House of Commons. Ironically, the Constitution’s future would follow the very pattern of British centralization that the colonists rebelled against despite the lessons they learned from the Iroquois. The Iroquois Nation consisted of six tribes . . . Seneca, Cayoga, Onendago, Oneida, Mohawk, and Huron.
It has been reported in “Antiquity Publications” that prehistoric and ancient religious artifacts were found in a Tennessee USA cave dating back to 6,000 BC. The article also suggests the source was American Indian. There are drawings in open air painted red (as were found in Easter Island). Also depicted are ancient birds which could reflect on the “bird-men” of South America and Easter Island. In the research for the treatise I authored “The Larger Spiritual Order & Universal Scheme of Things-Simplified“, I found that there was a migratory connection between South America and Easter Island. These cave drawings may also suggest a connection of an onward migration to the eastern part of North America by these same people.
In a previous post of this blog, it was stated that the Aryans migrated back and forth from South and Central America to the western part of what would be the United States. The drawings within these caves appear to be more scientific and, therefore, I would postulate that the Aryans had also migrated to the eastern part of southeast North America. They may have been the first migration of people to the North American continent.
In this cave, in addition to drawings of animals, etc., there is a visionary art drawing that forms a nebula of gas or cosmic energy that could be a cell formation, as shown below. There was also a mummified female with auburn hair found, also shown below. In Part IV, it was stated the Neandertal or Neanderthal had red hair. There are similar cave paintings in other countries which suggest the wanderings of the same humans. Please also see http://www.slate.com/articles/arats//…/2011…/americas_ancient_cave_art.html (use Control and click) for more of the cave drawings.
TWO DIFFERENT IMPRESSIONS OF A SUGGESTED CELL FORMATION
Today, American Indian populations across both continents are once again on the rise. Indian leaders are beginning to achieve greater political success in fighting for the rights of their people. In addition, recent widespread concern over human rights has prompted governments and others to respect American Indian cultures and traditions when responding to their needs.
Over many years, the American Indian has developed many characteristics, appearances, languages, and customs while still holding on to their belief systems. Due to the many, many American Indian tribes, I ask your pardon for not mentioning all of them in this post.
Just as people look different from one another today, so did early humans look different from one another as they progressed into different eras. The dissimilarity of the bones they left behind may have fooled scientists into thinking they came from different species. Different environments create different human types. As land masses changed, so did the migrations and the people. Genes also change due to climate and modes of living due to migrations which change the DNA.
It has been shown in this blog that there were human migrations throughout the entire planet Earth over millions and millions of years, and there are migrations still taking place mainly to the United States. Spiritually, it was ordained to be this way due to the United States being the first known democracy of a country which primarily was spiritually destined to propagate or spread peace.
The time period for the Homo-sapien to elevate into another era is now. Mankind is destined to now grow into a higher frequency vibrational being and has created longer wavelengths with the knowledge of meditative thought. Mankind is receiving knowledge and is able to transmit this knowledge worldwide due to the Communication Age. The process is ongoing. May we, perhaps, call this newly elevated mankind “Homo-luminous”. Wow!
We have journeyed through the Evolution of Mankind in the last few posts. Can we now state “We are truly ALL ONE”!? E PLURIBUS UNUM
The next post shall be on the Pineal Gland located in the Brain or Mind area or it also may be called the Crown Chakra.
