The History Channel cites experts from the Joseph Campbell Museum, or experts in religion from this university or that one; and they interview authors of books like Jim Marrs’ “Alien Agenda,” J. Allan Danelek’s “The Great Airship of 1897,” Phillip Coppens’ web site called phillipcoppens.com, David Childress’ “Technology of the Gods,” Thomas Johnson’s “House of Phacops,” Ross Hamilton’s “Mystery of the Serpent Mound,” Nancy Red Star’s “Star Ancestors,” Giorgio A. Tsoukalos’ “Legendary Times” Magazine, and interviews with Zuni Tribal Elder Clifford Mahooty.
In 1865, “The Missouri Democrat” reported that a trapper saw a light travel through the forest and crash. The next morning, according to the news, this trapper tracked it down; The light had crashed, and the artifact was of metallic construction, had chambers, and a mysterious liquid around it; there were hieroglyphic-like markings on it as well. The sighting was along the upper Missouri river, and the home of Blackfoot Indians. Their legends and stories included stories of star beings from long ago.
Chief Standing Elk of the Yankton Dakota Tribe said in his interview, “A lot of our relatives that come to us from the stars speak in a telepathic means. And I understood them very well. They came to me with a bar with symbols from the light ships. They represent Star people and these are universal laws.”
