JULY 2013 Breaking new discovery:
Wayne Herschel makes a series of dramatic new findings on the Dogon tribes in Mali in northwest Africa (ref) that completely overturn an already well established theory. He does so revisiting the 1930 collection of sketches and Dogon quotations and astronomical data references from the earliest explorers that tell a completely different story and blatently contradict the general readers text in the book they published.
The Dogon revered their forefathers’ knowledge of their star ancestor heritage. They had a special way to find their ancestors’ star position in the heavens. They showed in their ancient artworks how it was done using symbols and diagrams.
Sadly, many of the original rock pictoglyphs are strangely missing... all but one. Were they destroyed by vandals or intentionally hidden, one will never know.
The revived secret will place the star map theory on solid ground. The revisited records of the amazing detailed pictoglyph sketches will no longer be hidden, they will be revived and revisited right here. Below we see a preview of the grand unified legend, a combination of all the detail revived... all as one... as the Dogon clearly explained: The Kanaga shows the way to Sigui and Digiteria the place of their ancestors, a depiction that mirrors something once rumoured to be the record of the legendary Hiram Abiff, murdered for holding something secret he was in possession of. Something a few might insist founded the Freemason Blazing Star tradition who coincidently also had many of their own scholars confuse their Blazing Star with Sirius (ref). All will be explored here.
For years Wayne couldn’t quite accept how the so-called Sirius human origin mystery had any solid foundation. Firstly because Sirius had already been proven as non sun-like and confirmed without any planets, and secondly he had found all other ancient civilisations chose another defined star as important. ALL ancient megalithic civilisations according to Wayne’s globally occurring findings held records of their ancestor genesis depicted in many different ways, but all show that their ancestors’ place of origin was the same single 'solar' star in Taurus.
In all the other recurring star maps revealed in Wayne’s book, the Orion’s Belt alignment to find the special star in Taurus was repeatedly used. What were the odds against chance ‘The Sirius Mystery’ (a publication by author Robert Temple repeating the 1930 explorers claims) also used Orion’s belt to find another special star… but using Orion's Belt aligning in the opposite direction!
It’s a billion to one chance against the odds that the 1930's alignment claim occurring also with Orion’s Belt, although opposite direction. Especially when considering all the millions of other stars to choose in the night sky, the researchers select the only other star also fitting such a unique Orion’s Belt alignment.
That’s just one of the obvious glaring clues the previous claim was mistaken.
Yes… any professional astronomer will tell an amateur astronomer that to confirm you are looking at Sirius simply look for Orion nearby having its three belt stars aligned with it. So here’s the thing: is it coincidence the 1930s researchers chose one out of a billion stars that fits an 'Orion secret' template? Is it possible the researchers saw and heard the obvious true alignment knowledge of the star secret in depictions and especially when speaking to the Dogon… then perhaps not sure which way to follow in the sky… looked heavenwards and shouted Eureka… it has to be Sirius.
If you could piece back the hidden records of the Dogon and go back in time before western explorers made their claim on what stars they obsessed in, while pointing to their original real stone artwork petroglyphs. This is how you would hear it being told by their wise elders. The wording chosen here is covered in the two explorer's publication who 'secretly' solved the mystery with their precise astronomical data presentation. They were obviously under some sort of orders and conditions for their publication saying one thing then placing the illustration notes with contradicting wording. Compare to the image above:
“Follow the three bright stars in a row
from the Kanaga constellation
and through a little further
near a small cluster of stars
Here lies the Sigu Tolo star
later known as the Sigui star
It is one the eye cannot see
The star of our ancestors
It is one star amongst three
The star celebrated in our rituals
It has a small companion Digiteria
that travels in an oval path around it
This is the place of the great Nommo
our ancestors of the heavens”.
The wording here is obviously quite different to what the 1930 researchers insisted was veneration of the star Sirius.
You will be able to revisit the revived history here on this web page and see the obvious. Each of the clues that reference the major detail shown in bold print in the Dogon ‘quotation’ above will be pieced back together.
How did researchers confuse this story with Sirius?
Yes, one can mistakenly follow three stars of Orion’s belt to find Sirius…
But that would be following the alignment the wrong way!
According to all the other star maps Wayne presents, one needs to follow Orion’s Belt the opposite direction like all the other ancient civilisations who followed through towards Taurus, to the real Dogon star that they said was not visible to the naked eye, yet it is known to be part of a group of three and near a cluster of seven stars in this large portion of night sky.
The mistaken Sirius interpretation occurred as a result of the reports of the first two researchers to publish studies on the Dogon in the 1930’s. They were researchers Marcel Griaule …
and his student Germaine Dieterlen …
We will revisit a record of their works here that was later duplicated and expanded upon by author Robert Temple who repeated their Sirius claim and made their story famous. There have aslo been a few other claims for the Dogon mystery who proposed other 'interesting' star correlations for the Dogon star.
Wayne Herschel’s interests lie not in who made what error where and when so let’s move on to what evidence stands in revealing exactly what stars the Dogon venerated. We will look at the Dogon stone artwork records documented by Griaule and Dieterlen…
Also the research article made available on line by a foreign researcher on additional original Dogon artwork found at Jabbaren area near Tassili researched by Douglas Mazonowicz...
Wayne has spent years trying to find original photographic record for some of the original stone artwork which would allow him to disprove this Sirius claim with tangible evidence, but sadly we will have to refer to the 1930’s researcher’s meticulous sketch records for all except one that was possible to prove.
Consider this in what you will personally conclude after seeing the revived details emerging: All previous researchers have jump to extreme conclusions believing it was Sirius or Canopus or all sorts of things, with just a few loose threads here and there but no proposal to date other than this account here fits a grand unified global collection where the exact star map detail is repeated not once or twice... but over 30 times.
The collection of sketches alone has inspired Wayne to believe in the reality of the accuracy of the sketches because they tell a different story in spite of their off track conclusion. So it is worth the work to reproduce the lost images because the detail speaks for itself… something tied into a global human origin ancient secret.
Through the magic of digital rendering on stone, the detail on the 1930’s researcher’s original claims will re-emerge while being discussed. The researcher’s sketches will be brought back to life so to speak rather than displaying messy uninspiring sketches.
Before seeing the amazing stone artwork patterns emerging and retrace what the elders of the Dogon said, let’s begin with some crucial scientific evidence and recap on some of Wayne’s research why the Dogon ancestor star is unlikely to be Sirius:
1) Sirius is not sun-like and too harsh for life as we know it... (ref)
2) Sirius has been studied by NASA and has a binary companion and no planets.(ref)
3) Only ‘recent’ Masonic tradition ever proposed Sirius as an important star system as its sacred ‘Blazing Star’ and Wayne has shown how this claim too was what appears to be either intentional or unintentional mistaken identity… (ref)
4) Almost all megalithic civilisations use the Orion’s Belt alignment in the opposite direction i.e. towards Taurus to locate the position of a claimed ancestor star...(ref)
Let’s revisit the shaman’s words as to how according to Wayne a Dogon elder would have explained the story of the place of their ancestors to the first western researchers. The first line speaks of the Kanaga symbol.
The Dogon are more familiar to the world as the figures portrayed in the image on top of this page. They are celebrating their star ancestors wearing ‘Kanaga’ masks and bull masks. Yes, bull masks too… another detail that was over looked. The Kanaga symbol is actually a very strangely recurring symbol found all over the world. In its earliest form it was often presented with two dots on either side of the symbol.
The “H” symbol appearance of the Kanaga seems to appear very similar to what is claimed the oldest civilisation of all... Gobekli Tepe (ref). Not only that, its meaning appears to be linked globally also.
The Kanaga symbol is one found in the earliest depictions of ancient civilisations all over the world. The image below shows the Kanaga symbol most frequently found with the Dogon tribe in north west Africa.
The examples below are of the research of Anthony Peratt who recognised this strange globally common symbol. He interprets it quite differently to what Wayne is about to reveal here. But one has to ask initially is it possible if history insists we were hunters and gatherers and people of primitive civilisations that this symbol appeared by chance all over the world, in separate countries separated by seas? ...
Wayne is convinced that the Kanaga symbol represents Orion. The two dots seem to be Orion’s belt. Some show it more like a lizard with a tail and others more like a man. The latter seems more fitting since myth has Orion as a hunter… either hunting a bull or more logically for Wayne… showing the way with his arrow or three belt stars something sacred near the bull.
A colleague researcher Márton Molnár-Göb in Hungary was the first to spot the Kanaga symbol as being a possible interpretation of Orion. He noticed each mask effigy also had at its centre the typical hourglass symbol of Orion depicted in modern astronomy, almost as if to give it a title. After all this hourglass symbol is used to depict Orion in modern times (see below). Bull masks were common too in ceremony.
He was inspired to look at the Dogon while researching another ‘H’ style symbol account of it from ancient records of the Baha’i faith who show a symbol associated in finding their special star which is close to being concluded as yet another substantial case of the star map…
Tradition has always presented the stars of Orion personified as a deity traditionally known as a hunter for him being represented with a bow and arrow. But Wayne insists he was shown with a bow and arrow because he is showing the way to the most sacred place of the sky. Maybe the deity was not hunting but simply showing the way to a sacred star in tune with a forgotten teaching thousands of years old.
Some ancient civilisations around 6000BC are seen here in the most famous ancient astronaut petroglyph at Valcamonica Italy. It traced out the Orion constellation as a cross and aligned it with what many believe are ancient astronauts. Note the bent knees and pointed toes as if in the air. The Orion cosmic signpost secret is compared to an ancient Christian manuscript that also shows how the cross of the churches was that seen by Emperor Constantine who confirmed… it was of the sky.
This "H" symbol here celebrated as an "X" symbol is the enigmatic biblical icon that had a connection with the Cross of Christianity, not the one Christ was crucified on but the one of the sky according to Emperor Constantine who launched Christianity. This very cross is also the Hebrew foundation key of King Solomon, a claim that is so vastly referenced and studied it deserves a website of its own...
The Orion cross of Christianity is also the Hebrew Solomon Key symbol in the famous Hebrew key of Solomon cipher (seen in a manuscript from the British Library). Wayne claims to have deciphered it by solving the puzzle and identifying Orion and the Pleiades (through assembling the puzzle pieces in its outer ring) showing the way to the Star of David, which is the star of Bethlehem. Both are the same as the Kanaga symbol.
Not many realise for example that in the Biblical Matthew text, the Orion secret is partly encoded but to hide. However, it stands out clearly when one knows the meaning of Magi – teachers of sacred cosmic knowledge…
The 3 magi/kings
follow (align) from the East (horizon) to find the star associated with the birth of The Christ: the star of Bethlehem i.e. the star Of David”
All fully explored on its own special website…
The so-called ground zero beginnings of civilisation itself, the site of Gobekli Tepe in Turkey in the image below also chose to revere the knowledge with an ‘H’ symbol interpretation showing the way to stars in Taurus.
Modern astronomy choses the hourglass symbol as seen on the Dogon mask decoration, which is a variation of the ‘H’ cross.
The next landmark and very true clue is that the Dogon’s ultimate star is not even visible at all. This is another fact that would match the star maps recurring globally. Wayne was certain initially that the Dogon like other ancient civilisations used Orion’s belt as a cosmic signpost to locate their ancestor star called the Sigui Star as we shall both see and reason.
First consider the obvious: why did the 1930 researchers argue over the importance of the Dogon’s invisibility claim? It is obvious. Because they needed a solid measurable object to prove their hypothesis. They chose to follow Orion’s belt the other direction blatantly ignoring a very important piece of evidence: the star of the Dogon cannot be seen with the naked eye. It is too tiny and of magnitude 14. Here is the text reference where the scholars argued as to whether the star was invisible or not and that there were 3 Dogon stars as a trinity so to speak.
(crucial ref - words highlighted)
Another allusion to the Dogon special star or Sigui star being invisible according to the Dogon can be found in this easily referenced quote:
"the first researchers on the Dogon disagree completely with each other as to which star is the Dogon Sigui star; for some scholars it is an invisible star”. The probability is the Dogon said verbatim it was invisible yet the two 1930 scholars preferred to ignore that claim.
(crucial ref - words highlighted)
This line alone is the strongest evidence in support of Wayne’s star map theory because the ‘x’ sun-like star that marks the spot in all his star map interpretations is magnitude 14 and invisible to the naked eye. The words here referenced just shows how much confusion there was especially because the primitive uneducated Dogon evolved quite a lot of ritual into their star knowledge.
In this first image of ancient Dogon documented evidence (above) from the 1930 sketches and testimony of the Dogon, note the position of a cross placed above a circle of seven stars thought to be the cluster referred to in the Dogon explanation discussed in the previous paragraph. The cross symbol Wayne found is the symbol adapted by the churches for Orion...
clearly here as a cosmic pointer in alignment. It has as the Dogon say, a group of three Sigui stars at its centre.
A combination here (image below) of a few Dogon images being revisited and carefully recreated, there is firstly a very common reoccurrence in many sites of three dots depicted in a row. Given the association Wayne makes as to their importance as stars, Wayne believes they show the way to what the Dogon called the Sigui star.
Image source ref
This depiction has what the Dogon describe as their ultimate sacred star, the Sigui star that has a body in orbit around it called Digiteria.
The 1930’s researchers’ omission of the cluster in their writings now becomes obvious. The cluster would completely contradict the Sirius claim. The researchers subsequently compared it with tribal ritual pertaining to millet and sorghum harvesting and circumcision ceremonies, perhaps intentionally disguising the oddity of some detail not fitting the Sirius model.
The researchers figured the orbital path that was passed down by tradition was proof they were visited by extra-terrestrial beings. Wayne completely concurs, BUT the meaning of the out of place, advanced data in an ancient story needs to incorporate an Earth-like planet if the Dogon ‘ancestor’ lineage theory is to fit.
The researchers showed the cluster of stars the Dogon depicted in their sketches
but the author that followed who made the theory famous chose to omit the cluster completely as it didn’t fit the Sirius model at all.
Yes, this orbital sketch alone as seen here is what gave credence to the ancient alien theory for many years… until recently. Now scholars have realised the whole Sirius theory is so completely off track. Its proponents chose to mock the star visitor knowledge aspect too saying the orbit claim was probably a fabrication.
Image source ref
This is the only original rock painting image (below) the match to the earliest Church renditions of the cross of Orion showing the way in alignment to the three Sigui stars coloured red to show they are different... suggesting perhaps they are sun-like, as a Trinity is absolutely awe inspiring. It also shows the crescent Digiteria world linked to the Sigui star that by the way uses a Ra symbol in red like in Egypt. Compare the crescent knowledge detail to the next image that follows which carries the explanation. If you look close at the image note the man standing on Earth bottom left and bottom right... is that a human sitting on a world associated with another Sigui star?

This is a complicated depiction and one encoded in detail just like the latest Kabbalah star maps that Wayne has been able to decipher. (Discovery to launch soon... watch this space for the link)
Some researchers noted there was extra detail shown inside the Orion star mural on a stone wall speaking of the ancestors in almost and Adam and Eve genesis tone and hence the adaption of it into their sacred rituals and dance ceremonies.

Below is the grand finale sketch reproduction of the three Sigui stars. It incorporates what the Dogon spoke of explaining this detail with their assurance one Sigui star has close proximity to the star cluster and contains its orbital path of its planet Digiteria.
The confusion sets in when the Dogon add their circumcision ritual with celebration of the knowledge. They liken various aspects of the star knowledge to the ceremony thus creating chaos for any reader trying to focus only on the star history. The Southern African tribe of the Chokwe over a 1000 miles away from the Dogon claim to have the same ceremony and star ancestor celebration seen here. Historians believe each had its own independent beginnings. If this is indeed so, then how is it possible that both hold similar symbols, both also use the Ra symbol?
In the image below Wayne recognised the solar trinity pattern
that is also found on the earliest historical Freemason First Degree Tracing Board…
and in the Senmut tomb in Egypt.
And it is also found in the Hebrew Solomon Key cipher
Yes, Wayne has pieced the puzzle together making it fit because that is what puzzles are meant to be there for. There simply is no other way to reason the interpretation in another logical fashion. The addition of a beam of light or cosmic ladder is the final piece of the puzzle that speaks the secret. The connection between the Nommo deities of the heavens to Earth is all the depiction needed.
There is inclusion of more detail here thanks to the research of Márton Molnár-Göb. Repeated in more than three sketches we have explored already the Dogon insist the orbital path is symbolic of the egg of creation, since its oval. They also insist there was another secondary heavenly body in orbit in all other depictions.
So where is it in the image below? Its right here in the image! In the records of the 1930 researchers in the book Le Renard Pale (The Pale Fox), 1965 - page 252, figure 86… the Dogon speak of the sickle here in the depiction below… a crescent shaped knife used in ritual of circumcision which they celebrate with ancestor star knowledge. This word alone speaks volumes.
The planet Digiteria is right here. A world in crescent perhaps? A second use of the Dogon wording on record and expressed with more logic is in the ‘movement’ between the heavenly bodies. Here Márton was quick to recognise that one needs star travel for this story to gel and he is absolutely right. The lines here are movement journeys of their star ancestors reproduced in the ritual of the movement of cutting in the circumcision ceremony. Again here is exactly what occurs in the Southern African circumcision ceremony of the Chokwe… celebrating star knowledge on ancient wooden tablets carved with the same star knowledge seen here...
Was this the sketch that 1930s researchers Griaule and Dieterlen saw and was it possible they were already biased in their research? Is there a chance the two were members of the Masonic fraternity that followed another confused tradition that the Blazing star of the First Degree was Sirius? Wild speculation perhaps but it would make sense that they would conclude with Sirius. But if they were members they would be sworn by oath of confidentiality keeping their knowledge secret so there would be no comparison of the stunning detail shown here sourced from the UK Bradford University…
Lets not speculate any further... there is now available evidence in a book publication documenting the wealthy powerful society who generated the funds for the explorers...
If the link above does not work... google search these words:
Pathways of Power Rockefeller funded Marcel Griaule expedition
Chose the google books option... The book that shows the evidence is a book called Pathways of Power by Eric Robert Wolf page 72 first two paragraphs.
This is what you will see....
This is the very same organisation who is funding another modern day UFO disclosure project, one also titled Sirius, (not a coincidence) that just launched a multimillion dollar profit maker movie promising proof of an alien body proof and free energy device. It all amounted to false promises and hearsay with no scholar papers or academic documents as coonclusive proof that the Rockefeller funding could have made possible. Proof of the elite funding is on wikipedia. Scroll down on the Rockefeller paper where it has the title UFO, last line.
But this 1920's researchers 'altered' presentation is not what made the Dogon 'Sirius' claim become famous. There was another member of the same gentlemans society who published the best selling book "The Sirius Mystery" ... Robert Temple who would no doubt also have been sworn to the same oath of tradition to honor traditional interpretation of the ultimate star as Sirius. Temple has said he was brought up in a very influential historical masonic family and some unproven accounts say he is a 33 degree Grand Master.
One can imagine most reading this will shout out cover up!... they intentionally lied! But perhaps its a little more simple than that to conclude it was Sirius. Many masons have told Wayne that this Sun star secret near Pleiades has been obviously hidden or forgotten some time very early in Freemasonry. Far back in history some high orders perhaps from the monarchy highest orders decided it was important to make the star map secret. Since this star near the Pleiades is venerated by virtually ancient people of all race and tradition by revealing our ancestors equal sacred connection with all bloodline could mean something terrible for their great empire.
It will show all race are equal and sacred and the profits of war and chaos over a long period of time will end. So the Monarchy ancients perhaps chose to turn Orion's Belt alignment in the opposite direction to the brightest star in the sky... that will fool them... and it fooled the world too. Since most Freemason societies are more gentleman fraternities involved with charity and goodwill among a brotherhood membership, one has to believe this hiding of truth inspired not just Rockefeller who sponsored the first expedition to 'hit gold' and find proof his long period of Sirius ancestor star belief was real, but also the author that made it famous. Robert Temple was probably just like Rockefeller and more inclined to believe the claims of his historical own family and lodge brothers conclusions it was Sirius too. So rather than it be the case of continuing some strict plan by those who presented this Sirius error, it probably all amounts to limited access to records and their deep passionate belief in Sirius was how the truth became hidden.

This story here on its own without the references taken into account will read like a worthless hard-to-follow crazy story, which is why all the links have been incorporated for you to do your own all-important cross-referencing.
As far as reasoning the old theory of Sirius fitting the strange records, one has to accept that our technology has now reached a level of development where we can detect Earth-like planets as far away as 20 times the distance of Sirius. But especially because Sirius is so close to us as one of our closest next door neighbours.
The star shows a tiny wobble typical for its visible tiny binary companion and nothing extra.
There is one more really shocking but quite hilarious last piece of the puzzle that buries the failed Sirius claim once and for all. When I first read the words that Márton Molnár-Göb kindly translated from his Hungarian version of the book for me of the Dogon explaining one tiny little forgotten thing… I nearly fell of my chair.
It was in the book by Marcel Griaule and his student Germaine Dieterlen, Le Renard Pale (The Pale Fox), 1965 - page 326, figure 109.
It must have been a forgotten piece of their research documenting one of the biggest ceremonies of the Dogon.
“This ceremony (Sigo Tolo star ceremony) signifies the conjunction of the Sun and Sirius”.
“There is a sacred moment on an early morning where the Sigui star is above the Eastern Horizon just above the sunrise”
The researchers made a massive error forgetting about erasing these words conveyed by the Dogon when concluding the Sirius hypothesis for the Sigui star. It concludes firstly Sirius is not the Sigo Tolo (Sigui star). By definition firstly Sirius is so far from the path of the sun that it is impossible any time in history to be near sunrise. Sirius is a full 40 degrees of arc away from the closest crossing of the sun on the ecliptic.
Fact is this claim only fits with the sun-like star proposed by Wayne and as seen here in this star program with sun rising between the Bull’s horns like at Gobekli Tepe…
(ref) close to the Summer Solstice (for graphic clarity depiction is of 1st June but 21st June applicable too) ... like at Stonehenge. (ref)
The sun is between the horns of the bull on the horizon and the whole group of three sun-like stars are visible in correct orientation here.
(ref astronomical data)
The Dogon history is just one star map hypothesis here among over 30 others repeating this very same ancient knowledge...
