No matter where you look, ancient legends, mythologies and written
accounts mention beings that came down from the heavens and came in
contact with ancient mankind thousands of years ago.
Referred to as the 'star people', these beings are considered by
many mainstream authors and
Astronauts theorists as flesh and
One of the most incredible accounts of star people can be found in
Native American history and folklore.
And while stories of
intelligent beings visiting Earth from a
distant place in
the Cosmos date back as far as history can look
back, spanning across countless cultures and different continents,
mainstream scholars pay little to no attention at all, when dealing
with such subjects.
History before history mentions beings not from Earth, called,
describe the same beings that came down from the heavens...
Taking a look at Native American folklore, legends, and myths, we
find plenty of information about the so-called Star Beings, who were
nothing other than flesh and blood aliens, note Ancient Astronauts
And when it comes to Native American Folklore, and mentions of star
beings, Richard Wagamese, one of Canada's foremost authors
and storytellers from the Wabaseemoong
First Nation in
Northwestern Ontario tells us 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."
Richard asks a number of
interesting questions which we cannot seem to answer.
"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?"
these mysterious beings?
But just as Wagamese, other people who know Native American history
and folklore have fascinating things to say when it comes down to
Stephane Wuttunee, who is a
Plains Cree and French-Canadian
author and storyteller wrote a very interesting piece for UFO Digest
in which he explains his understanding of,
'ET phenomena as a
Native person and its global implications' comes from 'having
been partially raised within the culture itself.'
Wuttunee explains that in
"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
understanding, Wuttunee explains what he thinks of the Star People
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
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
In all honesty, the
only time I was exposed to 'aliens' per se was when I would go
to the outhouse and read the Weekly World News or National
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."
But perhaps what the most
interesting part in all of this is, is the fact that as Wuttunee
explains, the elders never really managed to discern 'aliens' and
the spiritual 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
I had many unanswered
questions, so I guess from a fairly young age I had some
unraveling to do,"
But in addition to
Wuttunee and Wagamese, others too have spoken about the star people.
