I joined the CE team in 2010 shortly after finishing university and have been grateful for the fact that I have been able to do this ever since :) There are many things happening on the planet that don't resonate with me, and I wanted to do what I could to play a role in creating change. It's been great making changes in my own life and creating awareness and I look forward to more projects that move beyond awareness and into action and implementation.
- The Facts:
Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, a Professor Emeritus at Montana State University who is Cherokee/Choctaw has been researching the Star People, and collecting encounters between them and Native Indians for many years. This article shares one of many. Reflect On:
Are we alone? If not, what are the implications when the public becomes fully aware of this? How will it change the way we look at reality? Science? Technology? History?
Despite the fact that this topic has been considered a “conspiracy theory” for years, any intelligent person who actually decides to take a gander at the evidence cannot really deny the existence of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) as well as the idea that some of them may actually be piloted by extraterrestrial beings from somewhere else in the multiverse. As far as UFOs go, there is physical evidence in the form of materials from downed crafts, radar trackings, pictures and videos. When it comes to the extraterrestrial hypothesis, there are witness testimonies from generals, other high ranking government officials, whistleblowers, and astronauts from all over the world. The fact that these crafts perform maneuvers no known man-made aircraft can also contributes to the extraterrestrial hypothesis.
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.(A published author with 13 titles published by major Canadian publishers.)
I’m a science buff and I try to keep up on anything new and startling and interesting. So it was fascinating for me to read that they’ve discovered evidence of water on Mars. As a stargazer that kind of news got my attention.
All of us, I suppose, who’ve ever been affected by popular science fiction, have wondered about the possibility of Martians – and the fact that there night once have been water there only lends strength to the mystery. The Red Planet. Aliens. Ray guns. The stuff of wonder.
Now, I’m not saying the Star People of legend were Martians but I am saying that the fascination with the heavens and the awesome possibilities that exist out there, lives throughout cultures across the globe. Mars, our closest neighbour, has always been a magnet for our attention.
All those possible worlds. That’s what I think when I stare up at a blanket of stars. Maybe there’s a part of that old Ojibway legend alive within me. Or maybe it’s just a latent wish for more, for a bigger experience than this earthbound reality. But water on Mars gets me thinking.
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?
Sure, that sort of thinking doesn’t pay the rent or solve any legitimate earthly problems but it does make the head and spirit swell with possibility and maybe, in the end, that’s the role of science – the aboriginal kind and the western kind – to invite us again into the world of the possible, to make us wonder again.
So I’ll keep on looking up into the heavens. Just as I’ll continue to look at the world around me with fascination and wonder. Because that’s the biggest gift the Star People likely left behind them – a sense of awe at the splendor and the magnificence of the universe.
