In my book
I recently identified the mound builders star obsession of the American Indian tribes of Cahokia in St. Louis in North america
ref . It inspired me to look for common ground with other ancient sites in this part of the world as my journey continued.
In Wisconsin many of these mounds are in the form of gigantic animals. The builders celebrated the long extinct mastodon a type of elephant more like a Mammoth. It is 135 feet long and located a few miles below the mouth of the Wisconsin River In Ohio a serpent 1000 feet long with its open jaws about to swallow a figure shaped like an egg which I believe is representation of the beginnings of humanity, in this case a sperm, the male human seed. There are even mounds in geometric patterns of the square, the circle, the octagon, and the rhombus.
Since my book a lot more on the Cherokee and Hopi tribes have emerged to run parallel with the Pawnee star secret as seen in the home page carousel link.
The image below is of a carving made on a large tree on the banks of the Muskingum River, in Delaware Ohio. It was recorded with charcoal and bear's oil onto a piece of leather by one of the Muskingum tribe, under the historical chief Wingemund at the time of a great battle with the invasion of the colonists set on taking their land. Over generations its meaning has been confused with the military history of the time and is thought by one of their descendants who have referenced it on the internet incorrectly as a military map.
The image below I offer a solution deciphered in 2004 with my version below it, then compare it to the star image. The original image is referenced here, a military history of the American Indian by one of their own.
