One of the most intriguing Hopi legends involves the Ant People, who were crucial to the survival of the Hopi—not just once but twice. The so-called “First World” (or world-age) was apparently destroyed by fire—possibly some sort of volcanism, asteroid strike, or coronal mass ejection from the sun. The Second World was destroyed by ice—Ice Age glaciers or a pole shift. During these two global cataclysms, the virtuous members of the Hopi tribe were guided by an odd-shaped cloud during the day and a moving star at night that led them to the sky god named Sotuknang, who finally took them to the Ant People—in Hopi, Anu Sinom . The Ant People then escorted the Hopi into subterranean caves where they found refuge and sustenanc ... See MoreSee Less

Keep up the good work
Well done guys your really going to change history 💚
Has any testing been done yet on these skulls? It's safe to say they are much older then anything previously found before in Australia and another species completely different to modern humans. Age and DNA would be awesome on this and maybe contact someone who's dealing with DNA in Africa to come over for a look. It may not be human related but definitely hominid. If the skull is similar to Lucy then Science has a big problem on their hands. I would be going international with this as the Australian government doesn't seem too keen to bother with it.
Gigantopithecus was discovered in a cave in China. There is also a second species, Gigantopithecus giganteus, from India, which (despite its name) is about half the size of Gigantopithecus blacki. A third species, Gigantopithecus bilaspurensis, comes from much older beds (6 to 9 million years old) in India, suggesting that the Gigantopithecus line goes back to at least 9 million years ago and the evolutionary radiation of early apes such as the dryopithecines (Ciochon, 1991). ...

EquinoctialMar 20, 8:00amWatchers TalkAstrology can be defined as the study of how events on earth correspond to the positions and movements of astronomical bodies which are the moon, sun, planets and the stars.
Paganism in general is a term for the ancient and modern religions which identify nature as the body of the divine e.g. Taoism is the paganism of China, Hinduism is the Paganism of India, Shinto the paganism of Japan and Santeria, Voudon & Macumba are the paganisms of the African Diaspora; etc
On the other hand symbolism is the applied use of symbols i.e iconic representations that carry particular conventional meanings. Symbolism also refers to a way of choosing representative symbols that are in line with the abstract rather than literal properties, allowing for the broader interpretation of a carried meaning than more literal concept-representations can allow. A religion can be described as a language of concepts related to human spirituality. Symbolism hence is an important aspect of most religions.
Zodiac is one of the oldest conceptual images in human history. It reflects the sun as it figuratively passes through the 12 major constellations over the course of a year. It also reflects the 12 months of the year, the 4 seasons, and the solstices and equinoxes. The term Zodiac relates to the fact that constellations were anthropomorphized, or personified, as figures, or animals.

Watchers Talk This book will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that mans past and present destructive penetration into planet Earths pyramid's has been the cause of many natural disasters around the world; The below mentioned damaged pyramids were built to prevent and or control, tectonic plate movement, volcanic activity, tidal waves, major earth quakes, land movements and the magnetic field movements here on Earth. If I told you that every large pyramid on Earth has a sister volcano and Island located 180 degrees from said pyramid on the other side of the planet and located at the approximate same latitude of said pyramid would you believe me? This book will prove this up until now, little unknown fact. This book herein will describe a perpetual energy machine that works on gravity. It's a perpetual motion machine that runs on the Moon's Gravity. The ancient pyramid architects refer to gravity as the divine energy source not electricity as some scholars would have you believe. The Egyptian hieroglyphs depict the snake as divine energy gravity, the Sun disc is colored red and the snake's body encompasses the sun disc, the energy that powers the sun is gravity. The Great Pyramid of Giza is a gravitational lense used tocondensed gravity in the center line of the pyramid which lowers the gravitational field opposite side of the planet approximately 180 degrees from said pyramid and roughly at the same latitude. For instance the pyramids in the Nile Valley reduce the gravitational fields in the magma chambers under the Pacific Ocean, under the Hawaiian Islands. In essence the pyramids of the Nile Valley are responsible for volcanic activity in the Hawaiian Islands by lowering the gravitational field thus keeping the Hawaiian hot spot opened. Every major pyramid on the planet has a sister volcanoe on the exact opposite side of the planet and at the approximate same latitude of said pyramid. ... See MoreSee Less

That's so sad Shane Williams. I hope you get expert advice that backs up your instinct and stop these bastards.
Never seen them that high b4???? Go talk to the local mob
Shane where is this?
Hi Shane, can u tell where this is, as an Indigenous woman, and from the photos, I agree with you, looks like authentic scarring.
The local elders need to be consulted, they can authenticate.
Is it private property, or a development site
Is this on the New England highway? Between stanny and wazza?
I did contac the local mob attached Hi _______ shame they pushed the rock .i was told the marks in the tree are nothing but branch breaking .bullshit that is would you mind if i do more work on the tree i can prove its very important with a little reserch also could a meet to show you the circles maybe i would need a computer and intetnet i was told aboriginal didn't climb trees thats why the marks ate so high ss they didn't climb trees goggle aboriginal tree climber any way i will wait for your reply shane
It may be stating the obvious but trees grow. It is possible that when the marks were made the tree was much smaller.
I got this in return attached ....Hi Shane nice 2 hear from you, but our own ______mob can take care of our cultural needs thank you anyway. I would suggest you follow up on your own mob, im sure they would appreciate someone like you take care _____
here i s few things i put together anyway
i have found what i think is a bora ring in the same area using google earth thats is what the reference to a computer and the internet ..any way i dont want to make trouble with the local mob just thought i would finish my own investigation
what ever it is who ever did it they transferred the marks for some reason from the old dead tree to the growing tree . you can see the marks at the same height on the old tree . the cuts are deep enought to be a shield with a backing handle
Hi Shane, thanks for sharing, could be a significant quarry site, sharpening their tools, many things come to mind.l
Hi Shane, as far as the response you received, I think the person who responded to you, is not thinking universally, our first nation ancestors, did climb trees, for seasonal food collection as is shown in this beautiful old photo from the south east Queensland area. Collecting the spikes of the grass tree, for the sweet honey sap. I guess it is fair to say, that depending on the landscape of country of our different first nation ancestors across Australia, was dependant on the different species of flora and fauna.
Just a shame i lost my job after reporting the 3 finds i could see on the job site .i got told to call next Tuesday to see if there was any work knowing there was work there begging for operators
Sorry to hear that.
Barstards...so many ill informed disinterested egg spurts that are consimed it seems in eliminating our nations heritage. Maybe stamp E.R on it and her majesty's representatives will leave iconic structures alone.. Yes.... that was a joke...
The local registered aboriginal corporation or lands council maybe. Rangers and cultural officers/custodians?

sorry pressed before I wrote this is the tessellated pavement on the Tasmanian peninsula .. amazing huh 🙂
Haven't seen this particular site have seen some other similar ones, however this one is rather awesome
the whole substrate is tesselated, not only the surface rock, its sandstone so hasnt been heated, and appears to have mortar in places
quite a few meters visible at this site but might be more - will let you know when i have finished surveying the site
will post more details when i have more data, alan - its hawksbury sandstone

roman road lol
It actually looks like Uran Pacha. If it were standing up it could be like any wall found in Peru. Also, in one of Churchward's books he describes roads of Mu that this fits the description to a tee....
Seriously though....arent these the tops of columnar basaltic deposits?
The pic above lacks the characteristics I have seen of basalt columns. However I am not a geologist. :/
If Boris can do some digging it might answer that question fast though.
Im not either..the question would be..can basaltic formations take a less geometric appearance such as these in differing conditions?
and, if so, were these altered or smoothed out by someone in the distant past?
I seem to be harboring some of those thoughts and questions you present David. And one way to find out is to send Boris a Back Hoe... 🙂 Or a team with a bunch of shovels to see if the depth can be determined.
as the guy from good times said...DY-NO-MITE!
Basalt columns are hexagonal David Goshorn.
the ones Ive seen before are, Geoff, is it possible these are something akin to columnar basalt is what I mainly am pondering...
By it`s size and shape I would guess a rapidly cooled lava flow like under a glacier ?
A variety of implements and weapons at Coranderrk, Victoria, circa. 1877.
There are possum skin cloaks, basketry and walking sticks on the ground.
On the wall can be seen various clubs, boomerangs, shields, more basketry, 2 spears, a stone axe, a pair of tapping sticks, a spear thrower, a weet weet toy, and a neck ornament made of what looks like echinda quills.
I would have guessed the legends were not based upon reality outside of the Spirit World. Might the birds have learned the controlled use of fire from people? Or did people learn controlled use of fire from the birds? .smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/why-science-takes-so-long-catch-up-traditional-knowledge-180968216/?utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=socialmedia ...

That's the second decent smithsonian article I've read today - things are looking up - literally.
The few fire origin stories I know from the Australian aboriginal tradition all have birds central to the story. Often taking it from snakes .
I listened to a program on radio last year about the same research & findings in WA. Investigator's thought they were after arsonists relighting fires as they were put out. It was a fascinating program but I didn't get to listen to the end as I was driving to work when I tuned in. Although the Creation stories I get to hear are the children's stories rather than Lore Ceremony knowledge, this throws a new light on the stories about birds gifting fire knowledge to the Ancestors.
It makes it quite plausable that some dinosaurs might have controlled fire. As oral traditions often tell us, humans learned lot from our animal relatives. I wonder if the birds are setting sticks in place to make better fire brands. It reminds me some of the ancient Greek legend in which fire was stolen from ther Gods for humans, and a terrible retribution was made for our benefactor by the Gods. Or some legends of the Thunder Bird here in North America, a sort of fire bird. Or the Phoenix coming back to life from fire. Many traditions pointing to relationships between fire and birds. Getting a fire brand from a wild fire, advancing or dying out, is not so easy, shows quite a bit of learned culture and intelligence.
I always thought we underestimate how intelligent our birds and animals are (and to be honest overestimate how intelligent we humans are)
Traditional peoples understand we are not fundamentally different from aniuals in any way. Science has lost sight of this, despite science supports we are not fundamentally different from animals. The belief we are fundamentally different does not come from science, it comes from Christian sects that think humans have souls which animals lack. I understand we are not much different than animals, and that we do not have a "soul" which animals lack. Still that birds use fire brands came as a surprise to me! Painting archaic humans as animal like also comes from this Biblical thinking in science. Such as decades ago neandertal being more an ape than human, with no language. Or recently, Homo erectus not having the ability to hunt big game or build shelters or use clothing, just some sort of "scavenger ape" more like animals than us. Much too much has been made of our large brain size. It is indicated that ancestral ARHGAP11A may have enabled Homo floresiensis, with their ape sized brains, to hunt big game, control fire, and make compound tools. It was not anticipated in the literature such a "ptroblematical" hominin could exist, an ape sized brain, with a large suite of "modern human" ability and behavior. Thus no sould the big brain has which the ape sized brain does not have also, or even the bird brain!

Hi Jake, hope this is ok to post and share with the group, as it is about bushcraft.
We are the Woppaburra of the Keppel Islands, off the Central Qld coast, and a few weeks ago, via a magnificent 'team effort' and in only 4 fours, we constructed a traditional hut (durra) of our ancestors, for the first time in 120 years, with only an old photo to guide us, from the archives of our ancestors treasured photos.
We stayed to the original island's natural resources and materials, to collect and build the durra as similar as possible to the build of our ancestors.
We also took a special photo for prosperity, a comparison photo of now and then, all we four descendants and our great grandparents in the old photo. ... See MoreSee Less

It appears the Maori are not alone among Polynesians in having a large Sahulian genetic element. The initial settlement of Pacific Islands was from the region of Taiwan, followed by a heavy influx of genes from Sahul. This lends credibility to claims by some geneticists of gene flow by sea from Sahul to North America within the last 8,000 years (though this does not negate other evidence that the first known settlement of South America was from Australia). The Chumash tribe of California has been established to be of Polynesian origins about 1000 years ago (linguistic material culture racial character states etc.). Polynesians do not look much like original Australians of today, except a few peoples in the South of Australia. In the last several thousands years desert adapted Northerners have dominated among original Australians, this was not the case more than 3,000 years ago. ... See MoreSee Less

Westwind: Djalu's Legacy - Exclusive ScreeningMar 10, 4:00pmACMISee Westwind: Djalu's Legacy exclusive to ACMI with a special Q&A to follow the Saturday screening.
Djalu Gurruwiwi is a Galpu elder, musician and storyteller. As an internationally revered master of the yidaki (or, didgeridoo) he tours the world sharing Yolngu culture, and by doing so, keeps his culture alive.
Featuring live performances by Djalu, Larry and Gotye who makes an appearance partly as a participant, but mostly to learn, music is at the heart of Westwind: Djalu’s Legacy. Incorporating music with interviews and animation, this is a celebration of a musician, but also of Yolngu culture, the very thing at stake as western culture encroaches on tradition.
Forgotten Origin: (The Out of Australia Theory) The aims of this group are to share understandings related to Australia’s rich ancient past with a view to learning how that may be applied now and in the future.
The subject matter of our page sometimes contains culturally sensitive topics related to Original history and we operate under the doctrine of Wirritjin - Black Fella, White Fella Dreaming: In remembrance of Karno W...., spokesperson for the Ramindjeri.
Australia has been visited in the past by the Ancient Egyptians, Phoenicians, Chinese, Spanish and Portuguese and perhaps others.
We are trying to change the worldview of Australian (Ab)Original people and culture positively and help to show their effect upon human development and civilisation.

Women possibly of the Yawijibaya group in dugout canoe, Montgomery Island, Kimberley coast, Western Australia, 1926.
An important photo for two reasons.
First, women being engaged in maritime activity without the assistance of men for navigation or for physical labour shows the strength and independence of this group of women.
Second, the Yawijibaya - reportedly giants up to 7ft tall - mysteriously disappeared without a trace, all 300 of them, not long after this photo was taken. This may be one of the very few images in existence of the Yawijibaya.
