Rain and Native American Flute Music for Dreaming, Sleep, Relaxing

I realized before I decided to write this post that I will probably get some nasty comments because of my views and wording but that is fine with me as everyone has the right to voice their opinion. All I ask is you do it in a respectful manner without using foul language. Thank you.

On a day in the USA where most people are thrilled to have a day off of work to celebrate Christopher Colombus “discovering” America I feel it is important to remind everyone that he was not the first to discover this land. The first people to set foot on this land BCE are the real discovers of the USA, Central, and South America. Today we refer to these people in the USA as NAtive Americans to be “politically correct.” I know first hand that most would rather be referred to as American Indians. I feel…

  1. It is a day to honor the Native Americas, since no one discovered first by the name of Christopher Colobus, since others before him discovered it. I never understood the holiday myself, since our forefathers of the great land was native Americans that should be honored above Radical European descendant ways of 406 years ago.

    1. If we really want to get technical, then we can go way, way back in history. Let’s start back in the Sixth Century — Irish Monks: This “theory” is actually more of a legend. A sixth-century Irish monk named Saint Brendan supposedly sailed to North America on a currach — a wood-framed boat covered with animal skin. His alleged journey is detailed in the ancient annals of Ireland. Brendan was a real historical figure who traveled extensively in Europe. But there is no evidence that he ever made landfall in North America. Now let’s move forward a little bit, 10th Century — The Vikings(my ancestors had good sense): The Vikings’ early expeditions to North America are well documented and accepted as historical fact by most scholars. Around the year 1000 A.D., the Viking explorer Leif Erikson, son of Erik the Red, sailed to a place he called “Vinland,” in what is now the Canadian province of Newfoundland. Erikson and his crew didn’t stay long — only a few years — before returning to Greenland. Relations with native North Americans were described as hostile. 15th Century — The Chinese: This theory is espoused by a small group of scholars and amateur historians led by Gavin Menzies, a retired British Naval officer. It asserts that a Muslim-Chinese eunuch-mariner from the Ming Dynasty discovered America — 71 years before Columbus. Zheng He was a real historical figure, who commanded a huge armada of wooden sailing vessels in the early 15th century. He explored Southeast Asia, India and the east coast of Africa using navigational techniques that were, at the time, cutting edge.

      So who can say who really first discovered America? I was taught that the Vikings were the first to set foot in the Americas. There is documented evidence that the Indians or Native Americans were not the first here. They had to take the land from someone. The question is, who did they take the land from? Perhaps the answers are in each of our own personal beliefs. This is just my own opinion, since it is now proven and we have proof that Columbus did not discover America nor were the Native Americans the first here, maybe we need to celebrate, “Happy Chinese Day,” “Happy Irish Monk Day,” or even “Happy Vikings’ Day,” just my opinion though. Anymore thoughts?

  2. It is a proven fact that people’s from Asia crossed the Bearing Straight to North America and became the first people to walk this land and became what is now referred to as Native Americans. So far an exact year is not given as it was many thousands of years ago. If they fought anyone for the land this has been lost in history. But I agree Lady A there are many nationalities that were here way before Colombus and that there should be a day to honor them.
