A work in progress
Sorry to remind you once again however, many of the pictures were lost
when the old computer was stolen, still, this is a good posting?
Our travels across Mother Earth
Pictures are in no particular order so few dates attached.
Shechaim Ohjieshan (Sachem Walkingfox) of the Mohiigan/Pequot/Mohegan/ People.
Kiehtan is the ancestors word for our Supreme being, some tribe use the words
Creator, Grandfather, Great Spirit and so on.
Let’s start out with an old map of the Uncasvillage
now you will find that it is called Casino Alley or Uncasville?
This is also an old map, this is land of the Algonquian speaking people
a language being lost often with the crossing of our elders.
A good place to start, I believe, would be with Jeff Benedicts book Without Reservation
because it is based on fact plus a good time to remind you that at no time were
Natives East of the Mississippi river on a reservation, we live in villages!
