Regional summit tries to take out the trash

Counties see value in cooperation on garbage issue, but political difficulty

Ever get the feeling that while talking to some people you are better off talking to a cockroach?

Officials from across North Central Florida appeared open Thursday to the possibility of greater cooperation on confronting a problem common to most of them, garbage and no place to put it. http://www.ocala.com/article/20091030/articles/910301010

Open your eyes North Central Florida, look around, we have this thing now, called the internet?

Maybe we can just start using our trash for fuel?

O. K.

I understand, who I am talking to, government officials in Florida, you are not good at computers so I have a few to click on just to get you started.

Seattle Washington

Having a little problem finding Unkas.com?

Welcome to my visitor from

Seattle Washington

http://www.seattle.gov/default.aspx

Sorry to see that you did not make it to one of the correct sites? https://sachemspeaks.wordpress.com/who-is-sachem-uncas/

Looking for Unkas

You ended up at this one?

http://mysmudgingblog.blogspot.com/

I can see why one would have a problem finding anything about the greatest Native American Sachem of recorded time, my opinion my blog, one must go through so much junk uncas’s and/or junk sachem‘s and still may not find the truth?

I just wrote about this the other day.

( She-Chaim Unkas)

https://sachemspeaks.wordpress.com/who-is-sachem-uncas/

If you think that it was hard for you, think about how all of the ancestors feel.

For instance, a school named for him and his kindness to the area for years was changed to a green lizard soon after the casino Indians came to town!

For years it was our true tribal flag!

Many of his royal family came for a teaching social gathering with the children, dear I ask how many times lately?

Flag2

The link

http://www.unkas.com

will no longer take you any place helpful unless you are extremely tenacious?

Why you may ask?

Can’t have any Sachems or Uncas around that area for long.

Shechaim

Because of so many people, places, and things using an ancient Algonquian word and using it incorrectly, and after many months of prayer I must now violate a long standing commitment to the elders only with permission of the ancestors, the correct spelling of a royal name well known as Sachem Uncas is better known to my people as ( She-Chaim Unkas). https://sachemspeaks.wordpress.com/who-is-sachem-uncas/

sachem on Line, sachem school, sagamore, sachem Inc, chief, sachem ny patch, narragansett sachem, sachem yacht club, sachem east, sachem community and on and on?

Many of you have seen or heard about a fictional film from a fictional book written about the so called French/Indian War, written by one of my relations and the grandson of a royal family member, “The Last of the Mohicans“?

As you know I have slammed this book/movie/ many times because of the many inaccurate insinuations and liberties taken throughout the book and the film.

What you do not know is a little known fact conveniently placed toward the ending, as in the real name for our royal leaders throughout the Eastern parts of Indian country?

Sachem or correctly pronounced as ( She-Chaim) Tamenund, the Delaware Tribal Supreme Leader at the time of the French/Indian War (correctly known to my people as the English/French War on our land).

Every known true traditional tribe throughout the east side of the Mississippi should have known about this inaccurate spelling by the English and my ancestors have grown tired of the wait for their correction?

Also of interest in today’s society is the right and left hands of this She-Chaim.

Sa´chem`dum~ The jurisdiction of a Sachem ( She-Chaim) in other words any counsel such as Clans, Chiefs, Warrior, and Elders.

Side note of interest, the first time a friend (Shawnee mixed) asked for me to sit to watch this film on TV, when it came to the leader of the great tribe of the Delaware, she stopped, reversed the film and questioned the pronunciation, why couldn’t the leaders of so many modern ‘nations’ do the same?

Wiashguagwumsuck rock

THE ROCK

It was once the divide of the Podunk tribal hunting lands west to the Connecticut River and the Mohegan hunting lands to the north and east. The Indians called the area “Saqumsketuck,” meaning a land or place of hard rock. An enormous sacred flat prayer rock was known as Wiashguagwumsuck. There once existed a thriving quarrying operation in the notch. For a time the area was known as Notch Hollow or Quarryville.

Welcome to the person from the city of North Windham Connecticut looking for information on the Wiashguagwumsuck rock in Bolton, CT at one of my older websites

Uncas and his Bolton friendship Uncas & Miantinomo – Uncasvillage

http://walkingfox.tripod.com/id2.html

This, as you can see is a tripod site no longer in use by my people however, it does still hold important information. My brother and sister Bolton Mohegan people still hold to the culture, ceremonies and beliefs of our first Sachem and if or when this, my last operation, does as the doctors expect, I am planning on a visit sometime this or next year to my old homestead and my family in Bolton .Why it was/is so easy for Matriarch tribes in New York/New England to believe in the same Supreme Being that the Christians believe in? Most of the people especially the Connecticut Native Americans believed in one Supreme Being, who was known in the different tribes as Kiehtan (Creator), Woonand (Father Sky) and Cantantowit (Great Spirit). They placed the dwelling of Kiehtan in the southwest because the wind from that quarter is the warmest that blows in Connecticut and usually brings fair weather. They also believed that the soul existed after death and that the spirits of the good would go to the house of Kiehtan. There they would be delivered from pain and sorrow and enjoy an afterlife similar to that which they had here, only in abundance and in perfection. They believed that when the wicked went to the door of Kiehtan he would tell them to go away and they were obliged to wander alone and lost forever. http://www.boltoncthistory.org/uncas.html

Pequot Prayers

Welcome to the person from the city of San Juan Puerto Rico

To a few of my websites and blog looking for a prayer?

Pequot Prayers

https://sachemspeaks.wordpress.com/2012/08/15/pequins-pequot-mohiingan-mohegan-prayers-at-our-ceremonies/

https://sachemspeaks.wordpress.com/

I feel the I should be saying welcome to my brother or sister the indigenous native American from Puerto Rico?

Because as far as I know, Puerto Rico is in America?

Now, as far as our prayers go, I do not believe that we differ all that much in prayer either?

Maybe in a little different language but about the same.

By the way allow me to take this opportunity to say that your language is beautiful.

The tripod site is no longer, the Google site is close to being up to date however, I have many friends on the WordPress blog and feel very comfortable writing there often.

Our prayers are very sacred as I am sure that your are also.

This would be a little taste of our prayers, hope that you enjoy?

A Delaware girl called stay

Part of a fiction filmThe last of the Mohicans

is a statement about a Mohican, not the same as Sachem Uncas a Mohegan.

P.S.

I can do no updating, editing, correcting or adding on the old useless tripod website?

This is a stagnated, defunct old website from Tripod!

This is what always happens when a company outsources, they die or the new company cuts corners then they die.

My blog from WordPress is up to date.

As long as this old tripod website is being used to sell advertising, I might as well use them and follow you on the tracker?

Connecticut’s First Peoples

When Connecticut was Quinnetukut (Quinatucquet)

While we read this article and we should if we wish to learn more about my people.

Always remember that anything written after a casino, might be a little slanted.

Also check on how many writers are actually Connecticut natives or native at all?

As with a few past writings, I like this information.

https://sachemspeaks.wordpress.com/2013/05/02/connecticut-native-americans/ https://sachemspeaks.wordpress.com/2013/07/19/mohegans-came-from-the-bering-strait-bridge-and-iceland/ https://sachemspeaks.wordpress.com/2013/07/09/archaeologist-dr-lucianne-lavins-follow-up/

It is understandably light on our past homeland, light on how we got to the land , has a different spelling then the name I learned from my Grandfather and the elders and is a plug towards selling tickets to the museum.

All of that aside not bad reading?

If I ever go back to the land, I would go for a visit.

We also know that it takes a lot of time and money to gather all of this information clean and preserve it to show at live museums so who are the sponsors?

Please remember, if you ever have questions, ask?

Pathfinder

Said to be filmed around the Great Lakes Area.

My guess would be Hollywood, Simi Valley?

I hate to be always complaining about films said to be about our people however, this is why we always get a bum rap and people in other countries are shocked to find out that we are still very much alive.

You want to talk about Déjà vu, let’s talk.

Bill Murray, Ground Hog Day, has nothing on me.

You must understand that we tape movies 24/7 so that after diner we can just relax without watching the massive crime wave of the day, now called the evening news.

It would seem, unknown to me, that my ancestor wrote another book of, what he called, Indians?

In 1952 it was turned into a ‘movie’.

I do not know James Fenimore Cooper, (1789-1851) however, you can bet that one of our ancestors Sachem Cooper, is still turning in her grave every time someone watches movies using her ancestor (Sachem Uncas) as an actor.

As you might expect, I still have not been able to get over that last ‘movie’ The last of the Mohicans’s

https://sachemspeaks.wordpress.com/2012/11/14/i-was-trapped-last-night-watching-the-last-of-the-mohicans-once-again/

Only to find out that we now must sit through another, only this time Uncas is a child and the only person left alive after their arch Mohican hater enemy’s attacked and killed everyone else, then just walked away?

No Mohicans, Mohegan’s were used in the film however, there at least there were Indians used this time.

Mohiigan (Mohegan) came from the Bering strait bridge and Iceland

A vote is coming, look for it?
Yes, I have written about this subject a few times however, as time goes by this seems to get lost in all of the fog from new writers looking to change our past?
Our ancestors would not allow small changes in our culture like our word Squarw, beautiful one, changed to Squaw, pigs, by Europeans.
We, the true Traditionalist should not allow small changes like our real name and very large changes like Sachem, chief, Head Clan Mother, warrior for European words like president, counselor, committee, chairman? Let’s not forget, Adoption for blood quotes, Village to reservation (jail)!
The story of Sachem Uncas and the Mohegan people, the native name of  (Mohiingans) the sources for some of this information was handed down by my Grandfather and other Elders and some was from other sources like while writing that book report in high school.
All of these teachings by my Mohegan Elders, took place at our monthly meetings, while I was growing up in and around Uncasvillage, New England.
As computers, telephones or libraries did not exist in the time of Sachem Uncas, it would be nearly impossible to say that there is any source about him that is perfect.
That said, It is very disturbing to me and my family and for that matter all traditionalist, to read all of the so-called true stories about not only Sachem Uncas, but the Mohegan people as well, written by those who are neither Mohegan, most not even Native.
How can one be an expert without living the life?
Uncas the first Sachem of the Mohiingans (Mohegan) People was a descendant of Royal Pequot Blood, really also from the true name of (Mohiingans).
His mother was Mekunump and his father was Oweneco, they were both Pequot’s.
Uncas was born near what is today Norwichtown, the historical Pequot Village in Connecticut in 1588-1683/84.
Europeans like the Vikings came from the east over Iceland, Greenland, Canada and down into our tribe. Little is known about those visitors except they seem to have been friendly towards our people.
Most people believe that American Natives ( our people) chased their food source, mainly the Woolly Mammoth, through the Bering Straits Land Bridge and that our people then came across and down into what are now the Great Lakes and the Hudson River Valley.
One of these groups of people became farmers (called land diggers, my people), however, most of the tribes in that area were warring tribes which over time, forced this group of Monheag (Mohiingans) People East.
After some time and many forced movements, this group of Monheags ended up along the  Quinatucquet River, which later became known as the Connecticut River in what is now Connecticut and on to the Pequot (Thames) river area, just short of the ocean.
The many years of battles and losing their farms, taught this tribe how to fight, so that when the Mashantuckets, Missituks, Niantic’s came to fight and to destroy them and take their farms, as the Mohawks, Mohicans and others had so long ago, the Monheags were ready for them, waging war first on them, then the Dutch and then the French.
After this, the Dutch called them the Pequins (destroyers), later the French changed their name to Pequods and the English changed it to Pequot’s.
When the English showed up on the Quinatucquet and Pequot Rivers, Sachem Wopigwooit was the leader of the tribe.
After his passing, the next in line was Sassacus as leader, instead of Chief Poquiam (Unkas, Uncas). Sachem Sassacus was hoping that he would force the English back into the ocean so the people sided with him.
Sassacus like the Niantic’s and the Narragansett’s hated the English and was at war with them constantly.
War chief Poquiam (Unkas), Sassacus son in law, tried to reason with Sassacus and the people, but they would not listen to him.
So he (chief Poquiam) took all who wished to go with him, across the Pequot River, to the Cauchegan Village, gave them back their old name Mohiingans (Monheags) and became their Sachem. Once again with non natives, the English misspelled the name and we now have the name  Mohegan’s. All of those still proud of your ancestors, I vote to take back our original name once and for all?
