Thats What the Old Ones Say: Pre-Colonial Revelations of God to Native America
Updated: Jul 19, 2019
L. A. Marzulli sits down with Chief Joseph Riverwind to discuss his ground-breaking book; That's What the Old Ones Say. Chief Joseph brings stories, that are in some cases, thousands of years old. These stories were handed down from one generation to the next, with great care not to add a word or subtract a word of the stories.
Thats What the Old Ones Say: Pre-Colonial Revelations of God to Native America is a revealing book of intriguing stories told by elders from different First Nations Tribes about The Creator, His Son, Native End-Times Prophecies, Revelations & more. Many of these traditional stories have been told for generations at Ceremonial Grounds, Stomp Arbors, Powwow Grounds, and private family gatherings tucked away deep on tribal lands. I was honored and humbled to be able to sit and learn these old stories from elders hailing from many First Nations tribes. Comanche, Dineh, Apache, Anishinabe, Aztec, Cherokee, Creek, Cheyenne, Lakota, and Mohawk are a few of the tribes whose elders shared their beautiful stories with me. I listened eagerly to these accounts that were passed down from generation to generation while understanding filled my spirit and I was asked to pass these stories along to the next generation.
These are stories that were told before missionary contact and I realized with each story that I listened to I had heard them before…not from my tribe but from another ancient tribe who has left an impacting legacy on the earth called The Bible. The Creator planted the seed in my heart to write this book as a way to help build the bridge of reconciliation between the nations. You might laugh, cry, sing for joy or wail from the deepest parts of your soul.
Betrayal, love, reconciliation, unity, sacrifice, joy, peace, history, archaeology, science, the perseverance of the human spirit and the longing for Creator to heal our land and broken hearts. A longing for our spirit to be uplifted from the only One who can give us Hope in the face of utter defeat and despair.
I was humbled being entrusted with hearing these stories and was given permission to retell them so they can be shared with the world.
