The 17th Century WASP HYPOTHESIS

As stanzas of the Lenape History were deciphered and as evidence to verify those stanzas was found, the BIG question was growing:  why is none of the Lenape History taught in the history curriculum?
Slowly, bits of testimony were found that indicated a brutal side of WASP history: 
  • the five  year's war of extermination
  • the rape of the Lenape women,  
  • the ridicule of their children as De La Warr's kids, 
  • The slitting of throats of mothers,
  • the shooting of babies, 
  • the massacres of Lenape in the second Puritan war, 
  • the slaughter of the Lenape in a church, 
  • and the "running down" of Catholics and Lenape over a century after the English invasion started."
hypothesis formed that said: "the 17th century WASPs deliberately exterminated and then suppressed the colonial knowledge that the Lenape were Norse Christians."
The WASPS would have had two good reasons to suppress the knowledge of Norse Christians.
  1. If Norse were in North America before the English then, by the Rights of Discovery, North America belonged to Norway,
  2. the English Charters had a clause that prohibited English settlement wherever Christians were already settled, and               
  3. English should not have settled in North America except at the invitation of the Lenape
If ANYBODY knew that Norse Christians  were living on the land and had been hosts to the English in nearly all colonies, then the WASP dream of their pure religion in a pristine new world would have been null and void.
But even as the evidence and the Lenape History revealed a coherent history, the cause of focused suppression has been missing from the histories of the colonies.
Then my Lenape cohorts found the little read information in the Catholic histories about the "secret voyage" during the colonial period.  In 1612, the WASPs took a fourteen gun ship on a 700 mile trip to attack a CHURCH in Arcadia.  
. The 13th century churches in Boston and NewPort may have been destroyed during the same trip.  
. This overt action was a deliberate attempt to destroy the evidence of Norse Christians rather than obey the "do not settle among Christians" clause of the charter. 
Then In 1614 John Smith was employed to sail along the New England to Newfoundland coast. [Note the emphasis on "New" even if the English had routinely sailed those coasts for nearly a century, 1524 to 1614.]  
In 1616 a map by Clerke removed all the Lenape names from the region including "Norumbega." Norumbega was a Lenape region known for nearly a century.  The name was already recorded on maps and in histories of several countries.  Later, the English map makers tried to convince the world that Norumbega was a"fantasy" island.
Finally, according to Catholic histories, the WASP destruction of Catholic churches and the "running down" of Catholics continued into French Canada in the first three decades of the 18th century.

The hypothesis that the 17th century WASPS deliberately suppressed the colonial knowledge of the Lenape has accumulated much evidence, but even the vicious behavior of the WASPs did not explain the nearly total lack of mention of Norse Christians in the American history curriculum. 
Like, Norumbega, there should have been too many Europeans with too many journals and too many Norse names for too many places, to suppress the knowledge of Norse Christians almost completely.
.   Suppression of the Norse Christian required a focused attempt to remove Norse Catholic evidence and a deliberate attempt to chose false paradigms to advocate.
. Those false paradigms:
  Americans were savages 
       (instead of Norse Catholics.)  
.  Columbus was the first European to
 discover America.
     (instead of those people,
      who were standing on 
    the American shore and 
    who spoke Norse.) and
.American natives walked over the Bering Strait 
   (except those, who
    rowed their boats to America
    and who spoke Norse.)
The advocated paradigms had been created in Europe.  They were accepted dogma by colonial time.  Some colonial men knew the Lenape story from the lips of the Lenape.  But that knowledge was dangerous. 
. Roger Williams was banished to Lenape territory. 
. Thomas Morton was sent back to England in chains--three times.  
. His Lenape friend was beheaded. 
The man, who tried to stop the extermination of the Narraganset tribe, became the only man to be drawn and quartered in America. 
While searching the history of England, I learned about the Dominion of New England in America. I had overlooked the very minor  references to the Dominion in North American sources.

In 1686 a new CATHOLIC King of England created the Dominion of New England, which was a government administration over all of the New England Colonies and New Jersey and New York.  
The imposition of the Dominion occurred only eight years after the WASPs had exterminated the LENAPE in the colony lands.  An official review of those events by Catholic agents would have been troublesome for WASPs. 
Worse yet, the King, James II, already had a son, which implied that Catholic rule would be over the Dominion of New England for another generation at least.  The WASPs believed that knowledge of the extermination of Catholics and Norse Christians had to be suppressed!

The Catholic king was removed in England three years later.  But the suppression of the Catholics and the LENAPE was already at maximum force.  The Puritans had the only viable educational process--their sunday schools, which were fed by publications from the only printing center at Harvard, which was also in Puritan hands.  

By the start of the French and Indian war, which was planned in the English parliament, the profound distortion of early colonial history was already firm in the American  history curriculum.  

A Lenape Leader asked Gen. Burgoyne, "If we fight for you, may we continue to live on our lands?"

Gen, Burgoyne replied, "The British military shall never allow savages to live on British land."
The death of Gen. Burgoyne may have been swift poetic justice, but the long suppression of the Lenape makes a person wonder about American justice.  In a nation where people pledge "...liberty and justice for all" over 16 million people have been waiting for four centuries for justice.
. If past is prolog, the educational system will not restore the missing Lenape history.  If you favor justice, long postponed, as the American pledge,
