TranscriptEdit

When we speak of the history of the New World, we generally begin with the accounts of the Europeans who “discovered” places and named them after themselves – never mind that these places had inhabitants, names, cultures of their own stretching back thousands of years. Such is what passes for our knowledge of the past. One of these Europeans was Father Jacques Marquette, a Jesuit missionary who mapped much of the Mississippi River for his French masters. Marquette teamed up with the explorer Louis Joliet for an expedition down the great river, bestowing names that still are used today.


As the voyage progressed, Marquette kept finding the same image again and again, what he could only describe as a monster: with horns, a scaly body, red eyes and a long tail. As they encountered different native tribes, Marquette inquired with each of them about the strange dragon images. Again and again, he got he same reply - point southward, with a cryptic warning of danger.


As they pushed south down the river, the dragon images got larger and larger, and the native tribes they encountered became fewer and fewer. Eventually, they reached the areas near where St. Louis sits today, where they found a people who called themselves Cahokian. These were not the original Cahokians – these were distantly-related descendents with a vague recollection of the great civilization of the past.


But these false Cahokians were able to explain the dragons to Father Marquette. According to them, the dragons were placed by the original Cahokians as a warning against evil monsters who rose up and destroyed the great city. As you might expect, Marquette ignored these warnings as superstitious nonsense. After all, how could such savages build a city as great as the Cahokia they described. For the rest of his expedition, he looked for signs of such a great city, and did not find it. He did not find anything – there were no natives for hundreds of miles. And yet, he missed the great Cahokian Mounds, perhaps only by a few miles.


Today, we know that Marquette was wrong to disbelieve the stories he was told. Perhaps if he hadn’t, he would have been able to learn more about the dragons, the danger they represented, and what they had to do with the destruction of the Cahokians. Instead, he began a colonization process that systematically obliterated the Truth of the Cahokians. 


Cahokian Students, the mystery of your Line and it's astonishing disappearance from the Earth, is key to understanding not only the Truth of the Great Tribe. Getting to the bottom of this holds the key to the Corruption itself, to the powers behind it, and to the future in store for all of us, if we don't act. Let me know your thoughts. There will be much more soon.
