Emergence of the Anusazi
There are clues not only to the disappearance, but also to the origins of the Anusazi in the legends of the Navajo. But the White man has his science and claims they must have come from Asia across a land bridge that has become the Bering Strait. They now accept DNA evidence as revealing not only Asian progenitors, but European as well:
Native Americans carry about one-third European genes and two-thirds East Asian. This reveals a meeting between two branches of modern man: one branch that followed the east coast of Asia, and one that travelled east from Europe to the steppes of Asia.
The researchers cannot at this point say with any certainty exactly where the two branches coverged, but they estimate that they met … in the vast land area between Siberia and Alaska, known as Beringia. Here, it is conceivable that there has been some sort of a nesting box from which various genetic lineages of Native Americans originate. (DNA links Native Americans with Europeans)
But it is still insisted that this race, once formed, crossed the Bering land bridge into what is now Alaska, and from there populated America. Western archaeological scholarship is very conservative and does not consider the preponderance of evidence for an ancient globally seafaring people.
Given the myths of the Navajo and the Hopi, perhaps they should. The Navajo say that the Anusazi, or their ancestors, had emerged from underground worlds. And the circumstances of this emergence point to a seafaring route to the far east.
The Navajo were given the name Niihookaa Diyan DinE by their creators. It means ‘Holy Earth People’ or ‘Lords of the Earth’. Navajos today simply call themselves “DinE”, meaning “The People”. … (Myth 1)
According to the DinE, they emerged from three previous underworlds into this, the fourth [sometimes called a fifth], or “Glittering World”, through a magic reed. The first [was the] Black World. … (Myth 1)
[I]n the different three lower worlds [all] things were spiritually created in the time before the earth existed and the physical aspect of man did not exist yet, but the spiritual did. In [each] world the … people started fighting with one another and were instructed by the Holy People to depart. (Myth 2)
The first three worlds were regarded as being subterranean, and it was from these that the ancestors emerged onto the surface of the earth. On the surface their diet changed, which seems to have changed their appearance.
In the fourth world, they found the Hopi living there and succeeded in not fighting with one another or their neighbors, and their bodies were transformed from the insect forms to human forms … being formed from ears of white and yellow corn … . (Myth 2)
Coyote, the trickster, also appears and steals the baby of water monster, who brings a great flood in the third world which primarily forces the humans as well as Holy People to journey to the surface of the fifth world through a hollow reed. (Myth 2)
Thus the Navajo describe their ancestors as intermingling with sacred beings both before and after a great flood. This parallels the biblical description of sacred beings and giants living among mankind both before and after the flood of Noah (Gen. 6:4) . In that story all flesh was destroyed in the flood except Noah and his family, but after this the entities returned – only to be subdued by Nimrod and the kings with him (Gen. 6, 10, and 14).
Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Ham led Japheth in a rebellion against Noah and Shem. Kush, the son of Ham traveled the world evangelizing for the new religion and regime. The dragon king, Nimrod, the son and/or grandson of Kush, united all people under his power, rid the world of monsters, and attempted to build a tower at Babylon in Mesopotamia that would reach into heaven, by “making a name” (Gen. 11:4). The tower was destroyed, along with the single understanding of language, and the people were dispersed.
The tradition of Kush was then carried forward by the sun god, Asshur, deified as the founding father of Assyria. He is depicted at the right with a bird’s head and wings, holding a bucket and pointing a cone as if to project some kind of energy – not entirely human. Asshur may have been in the lineal descent of Shem, Ham, or Japheth, or partly so, and/or may not have been entirely of human origin. His birth would have been through a magickal working: a ritualized sex act intended to invoke the participation of a god to sire a hybrid offspring intended to become a powerful king. Asshur may have been in the lineal descent of Shem, Ham, or Japheth, or partly so, or may have simply been of non-human origin. Dr. Randall Price demonstrates that Asshur is Nimrod, so he is a practitioner of the Kush-ite sciences. The history of Assyria (or more probably a proto-Assyria) in these early years is unknown (A History of Babylonia and Assyria), but in myth, Asshur takes over the mantle of the Babylonian Marduk (Nimrod). In the biblical record Asshur emerges from Mesopotamia to build the city Ninevah to the north, and then other cities.
If we associate Asshur with the Hindu sun-god Ashur, he also ruled over centers in what is now Afghanistan and possibly Georgia, and like Kush, his travels were worldwide. This led to he and his family being deified under many names all over the world. As will be seen in Part Three, Ashur probably equates to the Greek deity, Zeus, who established the Olympian gods when he overthrew the Titans (themselves regarded as giants). The Navajo parallel to this thread continues in Part 3 as their ancestors emerge from a flood to live on the surface of the earth, but monsters appear and threaten them with annihilation.
