Before Columbus sailed,
AMERICANS had already built CHURCHES
and had TEMPLES for their mobile lifestyle.
The ENGLISH destroyed the CHURCHES and
attempted to suppress the NORSE LANGUAGE.


Jacques Le Moyne painted a picture of the remains of a Churh in FLORIDA about 1564-5

This data is a half century before the ENGLISH invasion.  A Catholic Church had stood on the place where the artifacts remained.

The painting gives clues that the church may have been there a century and a half before Columbus sailed.

The picture shows the remains of what could be a Catholic church.  Some other paintings of the congretion show behavior that might have been practiced by a Catholic congregation, which had their church destroyed about a half century before Le Moyne saw them.

A few details establish this painting as authentic:

 1) the hats seen on the congregation are the same style as the hats worn by the Normans, who invaded England in 1066.

2) Those are southern European shields hanging on the pillar.  (Norse men usually carried round shields.)

3). The insignia on the shields may indicate an European clan. and, 

4). The tall man in the foreground would be typical of a Norse man.

This painting, in Florida, was made  a century and a half after the Templar Knights vanished from Europe.  They may have found an existing Catholic Church, where the people spoke Norse, and then joined the congregation. 

The painting is a half century after the Spanish Conquistadors began to ravage Florida.  The sadistic actions of the Conquistadors is well documented. So the destruction of the Church was probably by deliberate destruction  by men interested in land and wealth.  


BISHOP ERIC GNUPPSON was nicknamed “HENRICUS.”  HENRICUS LEFT GREENLAND IN 1121 to visit his flock of Catholics, who spoke Norse.  He chose to guide his boat load of rowing men down the Atlantic Coast.  

He chose a central location to build a church.  The Catholics in the area called it the HENRICUS' church. 

Five Centuries later, 300 heavily armored men under the command of Thomas Dale marched 80 miles up the south shore of the James River.  

They destroyed villages and crops as they went.  They used the latest flintlock rifles to kill the men and some women.  They drug the good looking women along for night recreation.

At Henricus they took over a “Magnificant Church.”
Thomas Dale moved in.

In that chruch He “possessed” Pocahontas for nine months.

Pocahontas married John Rolfe, but she named her son after the father: “Thomas”

The English have a differenct version of the Henricus settlement.  (Scroll down to “Imagine its 1611”).

Now you have two versions of HENRICUS.


In the 19th century, when Horsford found the stones of a destroyed church, no one even suspectedd that English Protestants of the 17th century would deliberately tear a Catholic Church apart.

 But back in the 17th century the BIG issue was who would claim America.  If anybody knew the Catholics were on the shore, then the English Protestants could NOT claim to be first.  Then the Pope would proclaim that the land belonged to the Catholics, who spoke Norse.

  So the English apparently decided to destroy the Churches and suppress the Catholics, who spoke Norse.

Educators have been suppressing information about the Catholics, who spoke Norse ever since.

The link explains the Catholic Church, which was built in 1688.  I could no longer find St. ANN.  But I did find this "Catholic History of New England," which tells of many groups of Catholics coming to America from 1,000 onward.

But the more interesting detail is the Protestant attacks across international boundries to destroy Catholics up to the 1720s.

We never learned about those details, did we?

The churches attacked by Argil may represent old congegations of Catholics, who spoke Norse.  They may have found new pastors when the French Jesuits arrived in the 1630-40s.  

Notice the "conversions by the thousands."  A conversion rate that high might mean the Norse speaking people were already Catholics.  They recognized the same message in a different language.

The Jesuits Relations begins with the first attempt of the Jesuits to preach the gospel story.  The old man in the back stood up and said "We have one of those." 


Early  in my research I made a survey of things that may have been connected to Norse.  One of those things is repeated below:

          MN, Sauk Lake,                       Holand, 1956, p. 193.

"They ..added ..details to make .. rock seem like ..a church"

Now that we know the Catholics, who spoke Norse were moving their boats over the Minnesota Horst by about 1,000, we can easily believe the large rock had been part of a church.

The location is just before boat crews could launch into the waterways leading to the Mississippi River.  The difficult traverses were behind them.  The Church would have been at the right spot to give thanks for surviving and to pray for smooth travel ahead.


The Catholics, who spoke Norse had developed a life style where they moved their shelters often.  They lived outdoors most of the time and used the shelters only for sleeping.

The altar shown in the link was typical of altars through out the Potomac and James Rivers.  John White painted one in 1585.  One of the 300 heavily armored men recorded standing in awe before they destroyed one in 1611.
Seven churches, or Catholic congregations.\, and many temples of the Mother of Jesus existed in America before Columbus sailed.

The evidence is that the English deliberately tried to destroy the chuches and kill the catholic congregations.  Then they suppressed the knowledge by omitting the "Catholic." "Norse," and "Lenape" from published documents.

Then the suppression became institutionalized a century later when the Protestant Sunday schools became the model for the United States Educational System.

The results are interesting:
1) Most Americans will not believe their ancestors were Catholics, who spoke Norse.

The PATAWOMECK remember episodes from the time of the ENGLISH invasion.
They also remember the PROTESTANTS killing most of the CATHOLIC MEN in the PATAWOMECK tribe in 1666.

Thus, the PATAWOMECK were there when the ENGLISH invaded.

The name PATAWOMECK implies that they were Catholics.

ANDI L: ... The combined syllables Pata (pray), 

Wom/Wunne (good),

and Ikk (woman)

become “pray [to the] good woman.” 

... To Catholics, that Good Woman could be “Our Lady,” who has been represented in traditional novenas as, 
“Our Lady of Good Council,” 
“Our Lady of Good Remedy,” 
“Our Lady of Good Hope,” and so many other good, beautiful, comforting things.
Temples like this one of the MOTHER [of Jesus] existed in the James and Potomac river basins, when the English invaded.
Painted in Virginia by John White, 1585

Thus, the original PATAWOMECK 
were most likely CATHOLIC.

As shown in the video, the modern PATAWOMECK still speak NORSE.

THUS, the statement that when the English invaded, most Americans were Catholics, who spoke NORSE is VALID.

There is other VALID evidence.
showed evidence that the Shawnee were Scandinavians.

There is much more evidence in:
 the LENAPE LAND blogs and
 FROZEN TRAIL web site.

The kids SHOULD KNOW  that
. When the English invaded, most AMERICANS were CATHOLICS, who spoke NORSE.
YOU SHOULD TAKE ACTION to make sure ALL your contacts KNOW.

FRANK IN GERMANY FOUND this LINK and sent it to me.
I listened and realized I could hear NORSE WORDS!
These people are connected by memory to a couple of episodes in history that happened four hundred years ago.  Yet they are still speaking NORSE!
They may not remember their Catholic heritage, but the fact that they can speak NORSE is a strong indicator that the original people in the tribe were Catholics,who spoke Norse.
LOOK at their faces.  I think these people, who have lived in America for four centuries  are more closely related to 
Another serendipity is our current effort to learn how to look up LENAPE words.
The most recognizable Norse word is "NOKOMIS."  
What does "NOKOMIS" mean?

ANDI L:  Noko’mis = a grandmother or aunt. The Sherman definition has divided the syllables to mean: A “closely related female” that “I am descended from.”

Myron: Here is the page where Sherwin defined NOKOMIS..

Just for the record, Sherwin showed that most of Longfellow's words were LENAPE-Old Norse words.
What does PATAWOMECK mean?

ANDI L:  Per the text, the combined syllables Pata (pray), Wom/Wunne (good), and Ikk (woman) become “pray good woman.”  In the context of a comment, it could mean that a “good woman prays,” or “good women pray.” In the context of a warning, it could mean “Pray, good woman!”  In a religious context, it would could mean “Pray to the Good Woman.”  To Catholics, that Good Woman could be “Our Lady,” who has been represented in traditional novenas as, “Our Lady of Good Council,” “Our Lady of Good Remedy,” “Our Lady of Good Hope,” and so many other good, beautiful, comforting things.
.PATA is in img485 under P_VKRM
              in VOL 8.

WOM is in img237 W_VKRM IN VOL 5.
        "O" could be "O" or "U"
        "M" could be "NN" or "M"
ECK is in img048 under I_VKRM  in VOL 4

The creation of the PATAWOMECK video with tribal voices was a serendipitous event.
FRANK'S action of sending me the PATAWOMECK link was a serendipitous event.
My action to listen to a secondary video was another serendipitous event.
My understanding the Norse words was the result of many years of searching through the words of the VIKING and the RED MAN.

Myron: The tribal name may mean that the original people of the tribal did:
PARY [to the] GOOD WOMAN, who was Mary, the Mother of Jesus.
Painted by John White, 1585
These serendipitous events provide strong evidence that,
When the English invaded, the AMERICANS were CATHOLICS, who spoke NORSE.

YOU watched these serendipitous events happen during your observation of this on-line semester.
So when the academic authorities put you on the witness stand, you should say:
"Yes, I watched it all happen. 
I believe that when the English invaded, the AmericDSans were CATHOLICS, who spoke NORSE

"MA" = "MI = "MY"
"YA = Yeu" = (see Sherwin's compilation)  

How many linguists must you defend to avoid thinking that "MAYA" means "My place" in the Old Norse language? 
None! If you believe that the people speaking Old Norse rowed boats on rivers and along the coasts of North, Central, and South America.  And if you believe that the bad Spanish and WASPs guys covered up their slaughter of Norse Christians..

Take a good look and think about it.

Evidence of Viking/Norse metalworking in Arctic Canada


I do wish I had all of Sherwin’s books and also had the time-energy to re-list all the Norse-Algonquian shared words and phrases in an alphabetical file. Maybe someday.
Myron Paine replied.
Richard Starling shared a section of his DROPBOX with me.  We uploaded all the pages of Sherwin's book.  You can see every page by clicking through VIKING AND REDMAN .
You can go to HOW to FIND the MEANING of MOST ALGONQUIN WORDS for advice on how to navigate the DROPBOX.  All of Sherwin's pages are there.  You can search them like reading a book.
NOTE:  Most of the states along the Mississippi have Old Norse Names.  Alabama does too.  Saskatchewan and Quebec are Old Norse Namees.  So the route from Hudson Bay to the Gulf of Mexico was named by people speaking Old Norse. Think of men is 20-oar Knarrs towing from Northern Europe to Hudson Bay, rowing or pulling up the Nelson and Red Rivers, floating their boats over the Lenape Waterway in Minnesota to the Mississippi.
The linguists believe their elementary school teachers, who told them that the Vikings stayed at L'anse aux Meadows only a few years and left no impact on North America.  Only one university has faculty that think different. The evidence is being suppressed by omission.  School kids are not learning that more than 10 states have Old Norse Names.
So we need to get wide discussion going.  If the Norse had no impact, why do more than ten states and two provinces of Canada have Old Norse names?
 Now a question for you!

Do you have all the pictoglyphs from the Walum Olum in a file that can be emailed?

I am hot on the trail of an engraved cave that allegedly has the history of some Native people of this area from the creation to sometime near or during colonization.

If I had a good syllabary of Algonquian glyphs to compare to that it might speed up the process of deciphering that engraved story

Hang in there my honored brother

Well Put, Grandfather!  This is a great way to gather new insights for the next book about the Old Norse ~ Lenape Diaspora (this is the first time I have called it that.  Do you like the name?) Where will our virtual collection be housed? Can we fund a traveling team to document some of the sources into one video?  I am so eager to hear response to your request!  May the Solstice bring new clarity as we come out of the dark, Ankuntuwakan, ~RuthAnn

Telephone conversation with Karl Hoenke, 1:45 PM PST Tuesday Dec. 19 2014.  
NOTE: This conversation was recorded after the phone call.  The text is not verbatim but does convey the gist of the conversation.

“Did you see my blog where I suggest that Miami, OH and Miami, FL were Old Norse words.”

“I do not think you are wise to debate South East words with Richard.  He has lots of knowledge about their derivation.  You might string together a bunch of Chinese syllables that sound the same but have no meaning in the Southeast context.”

“You could be right.  I remember our experiment on the Tingling Language on the west coast.  There I found reasonable sounding Old Norse syllables, but my guess of the meaning proved that the words were not the Tingling language.

ADDITIONAL EXPLANATION (Things I wish I had said in the phone call.)
"Still Sherwin gives Okmulgee and Muskogee the same meaning Richard records.  [Muskogee, in fact, is also found near the mouth of the Nelson River and in Georgia.  the word means creek or swampy land in both places.  That is why the Muskogee are also called the “Creek” and the people in Canada are called “swampy” Cree."

Before contact with Richard, I had read a book entitled “Creeks.”  Then, I thought I recognized a few Muskogee words, which had the same sounds and meanings as Sherwin’s words.  So I began to look up more Muskogee words.  I was surprized that nearly all the words had similar meanings in the Creeks book and in Sherwin.  Eventually, I concluded that the Muskogee were speaking Old Norse and, therefore, Algonquin.  Since then I have learned that linguists  belive tha tthe Muskogee spoke Algonquin.  So I could use Sherwin's 30,000 comparisons between Algonquin and Old Norse to decipher words in southeastern United States, which were spoken by people well outside Sherwin's study area.

That successful experience with using Sherwin to translate Muskogee words caused us to consider if I were fooling myself by finding similar meanings and then accepting the sounds recorded by Sherwin.  So then we tried the Tingling test where you [Karl] kept the meanings obscured until I had guessed what the Tingling syllables meant.

The fact that I did NOt get the Tingling meanings correct did indicate that the language was different than Old Norse, but, more important, proved that I was retaining Sherwin's meanings correctly.  While those meanings did not match written Tingling, they did match Muskogee.  Thus Muskogee was a language created by people who spoke Old Norse and Tinling is a language created by people who did not speak Old Norse.

But Richard is not interested in thinking that the Muskogee spoke Algonquin and that, therefore, I can find Muskogee words in Sherwin’s eight volumes.

Richard is fascinated by the Muskogee-Maya relationship.  Every Muskogee-Maya word relationship he makes is additional evidence that the Maya were speaking Algonquin and therefore Old Norse.

That relationship takes Sherwin's database far beyond the land of the original twenty five tribes he studied.  But my ability to find Old Norse words in Sherwin with the same meaning as the Muskogee means, to me, that Sherwin’s syllables are the correct sounds and meanings for the Muskogee and the Maya languages.

Sherwin has over 30,000 words of evidence that the Algonquian language is Old Norse.  If Muskogee is Algonquin, as some linguists now think, then Maya words similar to Muskogee are Old Norse.

Richard’s knowledge of Muskogee language and his extensive study of that language to Maya have opened a field of study that few anthropologists knew existed.  

The Maya spoke Old Norse.  Thus, the Norse were in North America and IN CENTRAL AMERICA.  The knowledge that the American peoples spoke Old Norse from the Hudson Bay to the Panama ismas is fundamental to the correct paradigm of America when the European invasion began. 

The two sailors in the mural are more evidence to the the power of the Eurocentric paradigm to profoundly history.

The best way to understand the profoundly distorted history of early America is to  accept the evidence that the Europeans exterminated Norse speaking people in order to conquer America.  Since the invasion, Europeans and Eurocentric faculties in North American Universities have been suppressing the knowledge that those original Americans spoke Old Norse. 

Thus a fundamental piece of knowledge has been suppressed each year from the 3 million school kids, who believe that their teachers are telling them the truth--the whole truth and nothing but the truth.


This map of American Languages before the invasion of the Europeans show that the Algonquin and Muskogee occupied land from the Hudson bay to the Gulf of Mexico. These people spoke Old Norse.

The Norse may have occupied the land now known as Maya in 1400 AD. 

The Norse were people of the sea.  One of their main boats was the 20-oar Knarr.  The Norse could have easily rowed from Greenland to the Ismas of Panama in two summers.  Most of the Norse artifacts found in North America, including the Viking Sword,  the armor of Paul Knudson, the hundreds of stones with holes in them, the man-modified terrain in Minnesota, the Norse artifacts found in Minnesota, the 44 rune stones and others all lie along the two Norse routes.

Hi, in this assignment we will  examine how words are both persistant and misleading.

First, go to VINLAND and spend an imaginary summer as a Captain on a boat full of Norse rowers.

Then find your way to the INDEX.
Search for LENAPE LAND

“Mis” evolved from Old Norse “Mestr,” which means “Mighty.” “sippi” evolved from Old Norse “Sipi.” which means “flowing water.”  “Sip” and” Seeping” came from the same source.
So “Mississippi” means mighty flowing water.”
During the time the cousins discreetly left to separate through out the land, their first objective may have been to get to the Mississippi.  One way to get there, was to go west. then south to get to the Missouri.
The rowboat routes going south from Lake Winnipeg.
The way to the "Island in the Ocean" was to row out of the Christian Sea, then through Lake Winnipeg.   At the south end of Lake Winnipeg, travelers could go three ways.

The major highways south of Winnipeg appear to be built along the old canoe routes that were in existence before the Little Ice Age.

VINLAND may be a misleading paradigm.  

 explorers and writers are looking for "Wine grapes" they may not find (and haven't found) any place in North America that could be Vinland,  If Scandinavians use "wyn" every day to describe a fine, smooth place, they can see Vinland every day in the middle of the United States.

Surely the English knew Scandinavian words.

Did the English deliberately purge Scandinavian meanings and promote southern European meanings to make the Vinland Sagas appear bogus?

When the waves were calm
in the land they left,
the Lenape lived together there
in strong hollow houses with thick roofs.
Let us look up "LENAPE" in the VIKING AND THE RED MAN.
There are 15,000 LENAPE (a.k.a. Algonquin) words in a DROPBOX that contains ALL of Reider T. Sherwin's comparisons to prove that the LENAPE lanuguage is Old Norse.  Old Norse is still spoken in Iceland and in most of the tribes in North America east of the Rocky Mountains.
This assignment is an exercise for you to look up LENAPE words.  If you have a LENAPE word, you should be able to look up the original meaning.
Can't think of a LENAPE word?
Pick up map and start looking at place names:  Wilmington, Wyoming, Coney Island ...

You should start with a browser to search for LENAPE LAND.
ToC = "Touch or Click"
                                    V= screen change

NOTE: the LENAPE had an L-R speech difficulty.  West of Greenland they said "L," whereas east of Greenland they said "R" in place of "L.  The Norwegians take pride in rolling their "Rs."  There are over half a million LENAPE lists in the Google search pages.

Sherwin began to compile words using "R" words from NORSE speakers, who rowed directly to North America from Iceland and by-passed Greenland.

So search For "RENAPE."  look for files RENVI168 and RENV1169.

NOTICE THAT THE "VI" tells us that the word is in volume 1.

The page numbers are a hint that we need to look in "GENERAL VOCABULARY"  

What does "LENAPE" mean?

NOTE to viewers.  
This procedure of starting with a browser search and finding the page in the VIKING and the RED MAN has many opportunities for a new viewer to go astray.

I would like feedback from you.

Do I need to give you more or less instructions. 

 How difficult did you find the procedure?

Please cite trouble places.

 Could you, would you use the procedure to find the meaning of another LENAPE word?
