LOK MAP

The Lok Map is evidence that thousands of Norse Catholics walked and several ships sailed to Norumbega before Columbus!

LOK MAP, 1582
This map shows the date, 1497, when John Cabuchi (Cabot) was in Norumbega.  

The Lok map is VERY IMPORTANT.

The "Island" matches modern New England's terrain, with the Connecticut River shown as connecting to the modern St. Lawrence River.  The Montre Johannis refers to the Norwegian navigator, who sailed into the area in 1476 to convince the Portuguese observers, including  Columbus, that there was no way through to the western sea.  On the full map the word "Nauis" is shown on the list of explorers 
.
The map is evidence that the English KNEW that the Norse had been to America before them.  They also knew WHERE Johannis, the Norse Navigator explored.  The Norse, English, and the Portuguese KNEW there was no way to sail to the western sea through North or Central America.
.
Sailors of all three nations, including Columbus, may have had the map used by Johannis, which was prepared by Norwegian Captains Pinning & Pothorst  in 1472-73 when they surveyed America's Eastern coast from Newfoundland to the Gulf of Mexico.  
.
The name of Joan Vas Corte-Real is shown north of the St. Lawrence river.  He sailed with Pinning & Pothorst in AD 1472.

For sure, the English DID have the Lok map with the evidence of the Norse explorations and the region labeled Norumbege (Norway).  And yet the English wrote history as though Columbus was the first explorer to get close to North America.
.
WHY?
.
Hypothesis:  In the beginning the prize that the explorer's were seeking would have been a waterway to the Orient.  They may have thought that the unknown terrain in the way was inhabited by barbarians.  Barbarians were not Christians.
.
Except there were those Norse Catholics living in Norumbega, who would have told Pinning and Pothorst that there was no way to sail through North America.  No one seems to have known how the Norse-Catholics got there.
.
The Maalan Aarum, America's oldest history, indicates that the Norse Catholics could have descended from "White Beaver, who went east" [to go south.]  White Beaver may have been a tireless leader of the Paul Knudson's rescue mission of 1354 ff.
After him, Snow Bird
was chief, he spoke
of the south.
that our fathers 
should possess it
by scattering abroad. 
Snow Bird went south
White Beaver went east.
.
Their route may have been up East Man's river, down the Saginaw (Slow Water) River to the St. Lawrence River to Lake Champlain to the Connecticut River. Then the Norse Catholics, who called themselves "Lenape," spread out to live in Norumbega.  The Lenape would have been in Norumbega for a century, when the other pale skinned people arrived.
.
A similar migration is described in a Wampanoag (White Folks) book, "the Children of the Morning Sun."
.
The Maalan Aarum stanzas follow Snow Bird's group of Lenape-Norse Catholics, who went west to Minnesota.  So we lose track of White Beaver's route.  Assuming similar rates of migration, the White Beaver Lenape group could have been in Norumbega by 1400.  A few stanzas in the Maalan Aarum hint at repeated communications between the east and west Lenape groups.  Young Lenape on their quests routinely traveled that far.   
.
Modern Linguists tell us that the Lenape-Norse Catholics from the west and the Lenape from the East met on Long Island. The dialect of west Long Island was different than the dialect of east long Island.  Most Lenape words, old or modern, can be deciphered using Old Norse.
.
Columbus, with his knowledge, the Pinning and Pothorst map, and his Jewish background, schemed to find a place where Jews could go when the Spanish inquisition started. He sailed, with mostly Jews on board, the day before the Inquisition began.  
.
Columbus had little intention of sailing to the Orient.  As things developed, the Island of Jamaica eventually became a Jewish Island for 150 years.  Some of those Jews made their way into the north Georgia mountains for a century, c1615 to 1715.  These Jews became another issue for the English to cover up after the English slave trade devastated the Jews.
.
The brutal Spanish invasion of America produced wealth, for them, that upset the balance of power in Europe.  Then, the English, who were eager to share the wealth, used the record of Cabuchi's voyage to lay a "first discovery" claim on the North American continent.  But there was that pesky Norse evidence on the Lok Map.  
.
The English wrote in history books that they did not know exactly were Cabuchi explored.  The Lok map was not made public.  The English authors made sure the Pinning - Pothorst sailed into oblivion.  A Wikipedia quote says "Some of the claims concerning Pining are controversial because information about him is, in general, relatively sparse and partially contradictory.

In early 1614 Pocahontas, who had been imprisoned for nine months by Thomas Dale for sexual purposes, had learnt enough English to be able to tell Dale that his 300 fully armored men were exterminating Lenape-Norse Christians.  She also told him that the Lenape lands included Norumbega.

What about the name "Norumbega, the Portuguese name for Norway?"

.
Thomas Dale may have written a message that reached King James via a few close confidants.  The war of extermination reduced.  Dale attempted to secure a treaty.  Only a few Englishmen in England knew about the Lenape-Norse Christians in Norumbega.  Norse in America, Catholic or not, would have upset the English claim to the "Rights of First Discovery." That knowledge, if everybody knew, would have bankrupted the Virginia Company.


Normally, England would have had to fight Norway to control Norumbega.  But the beginning of the Little Ice Age, the plauge, which came later, longer and more severe than Europe's, and then the agricultural black mail of the Hanseatic leauge, which saved a staving Norway, but drastically reduced the navel skills, essentially took Norway out of the game.


Captain John Smith was offered 1500 pounds to take a voyage from Norumbega to Newfoundland.  Prince Charles changed the names on Robert Clerke's map of Smith's voyage.  Smith was not comfortable with a wholesale name change.  He lists the old names, which were familiar with other explorers, in an "Old-New" table.  Norumbega is on Smith's list.


Thus Prince Charles was able to  cover up the existence of Norumbega.  He was aided because the printing press enabled English maps to appear in larger quantities than John Smith's book on New England.  Most readers did not know that there had been a century and a half of explorers, who knew where Norumbega was.  The English maps introduced New England to readers in Europe, who did not know that Norumbega, the Portuguese name for Norway, was being overwritten. 

.
When Clerke drew the map of John Smith's voyage, he left off the two most prominent names, which had been known to map makers for 144 years:  Canada and Norumbega.
.
The French remained in Canada fifty-seven more years, so the name Canada returned to English maps.  But Norumbega never appeared on another English map.
.
Norumbega began to disappear from copies of old maps. Eventually Norumbega became a mystical location.  The English encouraged the mystical location.  
.
But what about those Norse Catholics, which were still there? 


Even if they, like Pocahontas, were serving under an Englishman, they might NOT say something incriminating to a king's agent for fear of death.
.
So suppression by omisssion was simple.  The English proclaimed that Columbus was the first explorer to North America.  Then they proclaimed that if Columbus was first, then those "savages" in New England and Virginia surely could not be Norse--could they?  The language they spoke could NOT be Old Norse--could it?
.
But those Norse in Norumbega were also Catholics. Then there were those messy English charters, which said that English could not settle, where Christians lived.    The Puritans originally considered that Catholics were no longer Christians. That was part of the reason the English beheaded their Catholic King during the Puritan revolution.  
.
To the dismay of the Puritans, the next English Kings favored or became Catholics again.  Those kings thought Catholics were Christians.  If anyone found out that Norse Catholics had been exterminated in Norumbega, the Pilgrims would never had gotten their charter and the Puritans might have lost their charter.
.
So suppression by omission was not so simple!  But extermination of the Narraganset and Wampanoag tribes, and coercion, like selling many of the Norse ex-catholics into slavery, prevented the Norse ex-Catholics in the 14 praying towns from mentioning "Norse" to the king's agents.  
.
Still some people knew. Roger Williams, who knew, was banished.  Thomas Morton, who knew, was sent back to England in chains--three times. 
.
The Puritans used extreme terror as a motivator to keep mouths shut. An English officer, who tried to stop the Narraganset extermination, was the only man to be drawn and quartered in North America. His messy death was a vivid warning to anyone, who might "spill the beans" to a king's agent.  
.
The head of Metacom, the sachem of the Wampanoag,  was exhibited on a stake outside the gate of the Pilgrim compound for EIGHTEEN years.  These are abnormal acts in response to Norse Catholic attempts to avoid violence.  The terror caused by the actions indicate the need to suppress knowledge more than to establish civil control of a locality.
.
The Puritans, who had control of the only printing presses in North America and who started church schools that developed into the U.S. public school system, used their censorship to advocate that Columbus was first. That advocacy implied that Norse Catholics could not possibly have been in New England before Columbus sailed. .
.
The colonial English also tried to make sure there was no mention of Catholics, who spoke Norse in any written book.
.
Their tactics worked.  
.
Have you ever read about Norse Catholics in history books?  
.
You can protest that you have never heard of Hungarian Catholics either.  
.
Ah, but IS there a region named for Hungarians on the LOK map?  ARE Hungarians listed among the explorers on the map?
.
That is why the Lok Map is so very important.  The map  shows evidence that 2,000 Lenape-Catholics, who spoke Norse, were in Norumbega before AD 1472.   Two centuries later the ENGLISH conducted a few little exterminations to make the Norse of Norumbega disappear!
.
Early American history, as taught to four million kids every year, is a myth!  The myth enters heads a a false paradigm.  

A false paradigm in every body's head suppresses hard data like pictographs, self-validating stanzas, place names, and artifacts.  All an average history has to do is to proclaim "It is a fraud." and those heads with the false paradigm will nod in agreement.
.
Do you want kids to learn the myth,
Then DO NOTHING.


* Here is how suppression works.  A Norwegian publisher, believed so much that Columbus was first that he forced the author, Johannes Kristoffer Tornøe, to delete a section called Columbus in the Arctic from his book.  Tornøe financed the printing  of the deleted material himself.  

The suppression mechanism of the publishing environment is such that an author, who is not willing to pay the extortion price of an agent, will not benefit by having his material distributed for public access.  Columbus in the Arctic? is not in libraries.  The book cannot be purchased from Amazon.com or ABE books.com.

To the world, the book, which I received from the son of the author, does not exist.  Supporters of the Columbus was first myth will insist that the book cannot be used for a valid reference.

Yet this is the ONLY book, where I have seen the word "Johannis."  This knowledge enabled me to understand the Lok map of 1585.

Suppression by omission is powerful propaganda.   The technique has profoundly distorted North American history for four centuries.
(You have the same false paradigm of Early American History in your head as every body else.)

The Lenape History has survived four centuries by an amazing string of serendipitous events.

(The Lenape History can account for pictographs, self-verifying stanzas, many artigacts, and many North American place names.)

Which do you want your Grand kids to believe?
