Scholars have estimated that, prior to the ‘discovery’ of the Americas by Europeans, the pre-contact era population could have been as high as 100 million, you can read more about that here. The people that roamed these lands comprised of extremely intelligent beings full of knowledge and teachings that were, unfortunately forgotten by most, but carried on by a few. It’s these teachings that can play a big part in guiding us back to a human experience where all life can thrive. Yes, it is possible, our potential as a human race is greater than we know.
Another aspect of this society might have also dealt with extraterrestrial contact. I am not Native American, so when it comes to the topic of sharing beliefs from our very recent past from this culture, it’s best to leave it up to those who are direct descendants from where these stories permeated, and those who grew up around the Elders sharing them.
Stories of intelligent beings visiting our planet from the cosmos date back to the beginning of time, and span throughout several different cultures at various points in human history. Antiquity is filled with stories of beings, materials and flying objects that, according to modern day thinking, should not have existed.
When it comes to Native American ‘lore’ and extraterrestrials, they were commonly referred to as ‘Star Beings.’
For example, Richard Wagamese, One of Canada’s foremost authors and storytellers from the Wabaseemoong First Nation in Northwestern Ontario writes how:
“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.” (source)
He goes on to write, “If Star People did come to the Ojibway, where did they go? Where did they come from? Who brought teachings to them? What scientific magic did they own that allowed them to make such an incredible journey – and is it possible for us?”
Well, if you’re reading this Richard, based on my research, I believe they left because of the path the human race was on, one of destruction and, if we are able to restore balance and peace as well as create an experience where all living beings can thrive in harmony, I believe they would return, at least the spiritual beings you speak of in your writing. But that’s just my opinion, one that’s based on years of research and intuitive feelings.
Another example comes from Stephane Wuttunee, who is a Plains Cree and French Canadian author and storyteller. He wrote a piece for UFO digest in 2008, explaining that his perception and understanding “of the ET phenomena as a Native person and its global implications” comes from “having been partially raised within the culture itself.”
In his article, he makes a clear point to mention that, in his culture, they “give far greater attention to the seeking of the spiritual understanding of things rather than going after “the truth” as people from dominant cultures do. This is part of the reason why we tend to stand back and view or listen at first rather than bare in with questions or take the hard, direct approach.” (source)
I think it’s important to mention the spiritual understanding and implications are connected to this topic, especially with all of the fear propaganda that is continuously pumped out into the mainstream. Yes, it’s going to ruffle a lot of feathers and interfere with the belief systems of many, but sometimes it’s ok to put those aside to at least entertain another idea.
Wuttunee, like Wagamese, mentions the “Star People.” Stating that, while growing up, he heard of “distant relations and Star People living amongst the stars many times, mainly around campfires and during traditional ceremonies. 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, and sometimes spoke to them in my silent moments at night. I wanted to know who they were and what they looked like, if they had families like us etc. In all honesty, the only time I was exposed to “aliens” per se was when I would goto the outhouse and read the Weekly World News or National Enquirer. It wasn’t until my later teens that I discovered that people from the dominant cultures were talking about the same “people” as my elders did, though each side’s sense of perception of these people seemed radically different from one another.”
He goes on two write about how his elders never really made any clear distinctions between extraterrestrials and the spirit world.
“In fact, at times I heard Aboriginal elders blend the two together and treat them as one, which I have to admit did kind of take me for a spin when I was young. Were our distant relations physical like us? Did they also exist amongst us in spirit? I had many unanswered questions, so I guess from a fairly young age I had some unraveling to do.”
He also points out how stories of abductions were not really spoken of, but rather stories of interactions with beings from other worlds and realms, mostly using telepathic communication and, sometimes, full on physical and friendly encounters.
“To this day, I’ve often wondered for instance, if White Buffalo Calf Woman, the teacher who brought Native people the four traditional medicines of sweetgrass, sage, cedar and tobacco might have been one of these otherworldly visitors.”
He ends his article by making the an important point (to him), that in his culture, there is no reason to be fearful, and that the Star People come from far away and visited us quite often in the past, and will do so again in the future.
In light of the way things are in the world, I’d have to say it’s about time someone dropped in again for some tea and bannock, in any case, the fire is lit and the door is open.”
Blow is a video of Sioux Chief Golden Light Eagle speaking about the Star People. One thing that really resonated with me was the fact that he mentioned modern day terms like “extraterrestrial” and “EBE, and how they create separation and judgements. It reminded me of a video where the Dalai Lama urged us to look upon them as we look upon ourselves — another equal form of life. You can watch that video and read more about that here.
Modern Day Knowledge & The ‘Spiritual Implications’ of Extraterrestrial Contact
It’s always interesting to listen to the stories regarding beings from another world or realm, especially when it comes from Native American culture because we already know how much wisdom, knowledge and truth comes from them.
When it comes to the topic of ET’s, as one of the authors above pointed out in his article, the lore surrounding the subject propelled him to do further research.
It’s especially interesting to contemplate contact with native cultures because today, as former NASA astronaut and Princeton physics professor Brian O’Leary states, “there is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time.” The fact that people with backgrounds like O’learys’ now number in the hundreds are coming forward and sharing what they know has people all over the world interested in this subject. (source)
“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations. That it behooves us, in case some of these people in the future or now should turn hostile, to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want. This should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not the subject of ‘rubbishing’ by tabloid newspapers.” (source)
The quote above comes Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, the former Chief of the Defence Staff and 5 star Admiral of the Royal Navy. That’s the highest possible rank of the British Royal Navy, similar to General Dwight Eisenhower’s 5 star rank in the United States. He was also Chairman of the NATO Military Committee.
Apart from all of these comments and witness testimony that’s surfaced, we have a number of documents that have been released into the public domain that corroborate these stories.
Given this evidence, the possibility that this is happening is very real and if you’d like to read/learn more about this topic, you can start off by visiting the exopolitics section of our website. There you will find our most recent articles on the subject, dated back to the very first one we ever wrote. It’s just too deep of a subject to show all of the evidence I’ve shown in previous articles, so please do take a look if you’re curious. Another great place to get started if you’re interested is at richarddolanpress.com, some good books available there.
But what does all of this mean? If we aren’t alone, and we indeed have been and are being visited, what are the implications?
The spiritual aspect of the Native American lore is very appealing to me, especially because after all of my years of research into this topic, there are stories from both ‘insiders’ and experiencers a like regarding the spiritual nature of some extraterrestrial beings, the well being of this planet and the current path the human race is on.
That being said, there is also information that can be scary to contemplate as well. But for the most part, these stories are lathered with the idea that may of these beings, whoever they are and wherever they come from, do not claim to be gods, but are aware of the fact that we are indeed ‘spiritual’ beings, and that the ‘spirit’ world many of our previous cultures spoke of is indeed real. The existence of the soul is commonplace within the realm of UFO/ET research and, unfortunately, has made the field subject to labels and other criticisms that come from the mainstream. As mentioned above, the beings that were in contact with Native American ancestors were very spiritual in nature.
Perhaps this is the main lesson in what is happening today? That humanity has become lost, but may are now awakening, helping humanity to return to it’s roots. We are a species that has forgotten our own history, there is much mystery there, and our connection to all life in this planet is not what it once was. We now destroy our home, and have lost sight of our interconnectedness with everything. Maybe the entire UFO/ET topic is related to this in some sense? Perhaps the closer we return to restoring our Earth, the closer we return to meeting these beings again. Perhaps knowing that we are not alone, can help us remember who we are.
When it comes to the mainstream perception of extraterrestrials, there is no shortage influence from the mainstream. We are constantly bombarded with the idea of alien invasions, and we might not realize it, but a lot of fear is pumped into us. For the masses to seriously contemplate this topic and start to accept that yes, there really is a high probability we are being visited, and have been visited, is not an easy thing.
Sure, there might be some malevolent beings out there, just as we see inside the human race, but there must also be the complete opposite. It’s a topic that goes into many different areas of human civilization, and effects what we know about science, technology, the nature of reality and more. Again, I urge you to check out the exopolitics section of our website if you want to go deeper into that type of thing.
I’ll leave you with this message below. In late September of 2014, Indigenous Elders and Medicine People of North and South America united for four days in sacred ceremony in Green Grass, South Dakota. The significance of this meeting is profound. Its outcome is the Statement which Chief Looking Horse delivers in his native Lakota language, at the United Nations Tillman Chapel. It is the embodiment of a confluence of prophecies which speak to the necessity to activate a new level of consciousness for the benefit of humanity and the earth. Although their statement illuminates the nuclear crisis at Fukushima, the fundamental message is for humanity to spiritually awaken to protect and restore the sacred.
It’s interesting, because according to various account, this is the message of many ‘contactee’s’ who are currently experiencing contact.
“We are part of Creation, thus, if we break the laws of Creation we destroy ourselves. We, the Original Caretakers of Mother Earth, have no choice but to follow and uphold the Original Instructions, which sustains the continuity of Life. We recognize our umbilical connection to Mother Earth and understand that she is the source of life, not a resource to be exploited. We speak on behalf of all Creation today, to communicate an urgent message that man has gone too far, placing us in the state of survival. We warned that one day you would not be able to control what you have created. That day is here. Not heeding warnings from both Nature and the People of the Earth keeps us on the path of self destruction. This self destructive path has led to the Fukushima nuclear crisis, Gulf oil spill, tar sands devastation, pipeline failures, impacts of carbon dioxide emissions and the destruction of ground water through hydraulic fracking, just to name a few. In addition, these activities and development continue to cause the deterioration and destruction of sacred places and sacred waters that are vital for Life.” (source)
