Are Native American “Star People” Really Just Ancient Aliens?
While driving through the great southwest region states, you will see a vast open land area that separates cities, towns, and villages. West Texas, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, and Arizona are where many Native American tribes make their home since 15,000 years ago.
The year is based on sites where archeologist have found fire pits, burned bones and work stones that were made into scrapers, hammers and spear points.
CORONADO A LATE COMMER TO THE SOUTHWEST
Little did Francisco Vasquez de Coronado in 1540; know that he was not the first foreign visitor setting foot in the southwest. Coronado fought Zuni warriors defending Hawikah whom the conquistadores thought to be one of the seven cities of gold. Pre-history artifacts and modern discoveries will show that perhaps, the Native American may have a beginning out of this world.
According to Native Americans, the Star People were visitors from the stars who arrived first. Depictions of Star People can be found in many Native American artifacts and rock art. For example, in a rock painting at Cayuse Creek, Idaho, a cone-shaped rocket with smoke or flames trailing behind it is depicted. In the cone is a humanoid figure possibly holding on to the inner walls.
The Native American Hopi and Dakota tribes believe their ancestors came from the constellation Pleiades. The Zuni tribe also believes that their ancestors came from the sky. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, a former Assistant Professor of Education Leadership at Montana State University, whose native heritage is Cherokee and Choctaw believes in Star People. In Clarke’s published work, she writes accounts about Native Americans encounters with Star People.
STAR PEOPLE ARE CONSIDERED FAMILY
Native Americans talk about Star People as ancestors who arrived from the stars. Richard Wagamese of the Wabaseemoong First People writes, “My people tell of Star People who came to us many generations ago, the Star People brought spiritual teachings and stories and maps of the cosmos and they offered these freely. They were kind, loving and set a great example. When they left us, my people say there was a loneliness like no other.”
Stephane Wuttunee explains that Star People are viewed as ‘Space Aliens’ by the dominant culture. He said, “Far from being anything to be feared, Star People was just another term I grew up around. I remember listening in awe and fascination at the thought of us having relations that lived off and outside our world…it wasn’t until I was in my later teen years that I discovered that people from the dominant cultures were talking about the same ‘people’ as my elders…”
North Native Americans religious beliefs vary from tribe to tribe, yet their widespread belief is in the Great Spirit who created the earth, and who pervaded everything. This panentheist belief is linked to animism, which relates to spirits (soul) in all animals, plants, natural objects, and the universe itself.
Can it be said that Native Americans believe that the Great Spirit is identified as a god that made all things on earth and the universe? This Great Spirit has caused fundamental change as new experiences and knowledge occur in the universe. Perhaps this description of the Great Spirit was of extraterrestrials known to them as s Star People who can experience change.
STORIES ABOUT ‘STAR PEOPLE’
Dr. Richard Boylan (1996) wrote that Spiritual shamans from the Plains, Eastern, and Southwest tribes, related stories about the Star Nations and Star People.
Stories such as these were shared by the Spiritual shamans:
Star Governments had no monetary systems within their governing structures; the Star Visitors system was based on the mental, spiritual and universal laws with which they were too mentally and spiritually intelligent to break; and some of the Star Visitors resemble ants, with big, black eyes and long fingers and toes.
Native Americans, believe that Star Visitors, reside in the cosmos and on the other side of the Moon as well. Native Americans also believe that Star People are frequent visitors to their tribal land. Standing Elk points out that Star People are included as honored Elders and see them as, “Mitakuye oyasin!” (All [are] my relations).
Frequent Star People visitations are frequent in the Native American community who view Star People visitors as spiritual guides. Native Americans view of UFOs sightings is very different from that of the Western culture. In the western culture, extraterrestrials are mostly viewed with fear, suspicion and an immense distrust while Native Americans see Star People as celestial beings who teach love, kindness, and come to Earth in a spirit form and then turned into humans when on Earth. Perhaps Native Americans have a better handle on Star People then most cultures, which enable them to believe in the concept of living in harmony with the earth and the universe.
