The Swastika (卐) symbol was revered in the ancient Mississippian culture of the Mound Builders in North America. To these deeply spiritual people, it was a symbol of the sun, the four directions, and the four seasons (and other peaceful meanings). During WW2, Native American tribes (Navajos, Papagos, Apaches and Hopis) were “persuaded” by the US government to formally outlaw the Swastika symbol from designs in art, such as basket and blanket weaving, or risk losing their tax exempt status. While some feel this ban was justified at the time, the war ended 70 years ago and any contemporary display of a Swastika is still prohibited.
Is there a legitimate threat of a neo-NAZI uprising in 2016, or could this ongoing academic censorship be part of a covert effort to suppress history, or even alter it?
‘Swastika’ in India, ‘Fylfot’ in England, ‘Hakenkreuz’ in Germany, ‘Tetra Gammadion’ in Greece, ‘Wan’ in China, ‘Manji’ in Japan. In his 1896 book, ‘The Swastika: The Earliest Known Symbol and its Migrations’, Thomas Wilson, former curator of the Department of Prehistoric Anthropology in the U.S. National Museum, wrote of the Swastika: “An Aryan symbol used by the Aryan peoples before their dispersion.. an explanation how, as a sacred symbol, the Swastika might have been carried to the different peoples and countries in which we now find it”. The earliest known object with swastika-motifs is a bird made from the tusk of a mammoth from the paleolithic settlement of Mezine, Ukraine dated to about 12,000 years ago.
New archaeological evidence suggests that America was first discovered by Solutrean people (Haplogroup X) – 10,000 years before the Siberian-originating ancestors of the American Indians set foot in the New World. A remarkable series of several dozen European-style stone tools, dating back between 19,000 and 26,000 years, have been discovered at six locations along the US east coast. http://atlanteangardens.blogspot.com/2014/03/19000-year-old-virginia-flint-knife.html
