Eden of America: Why we should repeal The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act

Previously I published a very short book called Eden of America by Zophar Roberts which was written between 1800 and 1801.  Within it are the observations of a frontier world that pre-dates all present day politics except for the presumption of the implementation of the American Constitution.  It was a new nation learning about itself and what came before.  During that time there was quite extraordinary interest in the land that America inherited—and the mounds of the Ohio Valley which contained the remains of a giant race of people.  These people appeared to thrive during the Archaic Period of North American history and their descendents appear to have interbred with travelers from the Orient who were sailing all over the world in the days of the Phoenicians, the early Vikings, and of course the Chinese.   Following perfectly the Vico cycle, China after the 1420s closed off to the world and moved into a nation of anarchy then aristocracy abandoning their history at that point and allowing Europe to believe that when Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492, that they had been the first into the new world.  Europe believed the people he discovered were “Indians.”  What he really found were the remains of a people long abandoned to their roots that had devolved into nomadic tribes–(for a modern fictional example think of the Mad Max movies).  In the Ohio Valley they were called Adena and Hopewell Indians and they had lost their vast and sophisticated culture to time.  They occupied the lands that strange burial and ceremonial mounds were built on, but they had no clue as to how they were made or what they signified.  These mounds resembled quite similarly the types of earthen structures seen all over the United Kingdom and Ireland and have a rich history of mythological stories.  Additionally, earthen structures like those found in Ohio were similar to those in China and Siberia.  The Indians in America simply inherited them by default the way a modern-day urban dweller inherits the skyscrapers and architecture of a city.  They played no role in building the city, but they enjoy their construction as generations leave the earth and their memory with them.  That is the case of the “Indian” tribes who have been associated with the culture of pre-Columbian archaeology.

However, prior to the start of the Smithsonian Institute and the rise of the National Geographic society by Alexander Graham Bell—and many others, there was plenty of armchair archaeology going on as farmers settled the Ohio Valley and were finding the bones and relics of an ancient—and advanced culture which appeared to rival the Mesopotamian society in the Middle East—and the Indus Valley–the region of modern-day India and countries to the immediate east.  As many who settled the New World especially after the Civil War had cleared the politics of slavery from contention a strong desire inspired by the churches of Europe had a lot at stake to ensure to themselves that they were the ones on the cutting edge of something new—and fresh.  They were strongly motivated to ensure that America would be a Christian nation so they did as most European conquerors did for really the entire history of their religion—they erased the past and all evidence of it and used established science which the political machine controlled from a central Washington authority to preserve a dialogue which suited the politics of their migration from Europe to America.

Essentially from 1800 to around 1850 it was commonly known in the Ohio Valley and down into Kentucky that very large statured people lived in America and had a thriving culture of mysterious origin.  But for the frontiersman, they had a curious speculation, but little investment to the contrary.  They were free to pick up skulls from their farms and hold them up to their human heads and proclaim their observations freely of which people like Zophar Roberts likely observed.  But with the new nation and its Christian heritage from Europe came the advent of academia shaped by politics to unseat the observations and steer societal consciousness toward religions and government desires which suited the continuing flow of immigrants who wished to make in America a “sister alliance” with the homeland after the brave souls who first fought the Revolution and declared themselves independent—even to the global practice of slavery—had done all the hard work.  They made treaties with the “Indians” then purposely broke them slowly over time building a storyline which would later justify all public attention.  That storyline was maintained by secret societies and conspiracy theory deliberately spread to hide the truth from generation to generation.  After the Spanish-American War, then the Civil War followed by westward expansion and the lust for wealth during the Gold Rush the destruction of those past civilizations was complete and the observations from yesteryear nearly quelled.

To further suppress those early American observations of a species of giants who left behind an advanced culture lost to history laws were created to protect the Indians who were naturally associated with being present before the arrival of Columbus.  Even though archaeology became an established science really at the turn of the 20th century organized under university tutelage seriously between 1910 and 1940 some good work was being done to answer some of these lingering questions.  As momentum began to pick up as to the origins of some unanswered questions regarding “Indians” the political class seeking a preservation of their aristocratic tendencies for control established in 1990 the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act which essentially made it impossible for any archaeologist to obtain permits to conduct a dig into some of these mysterious Ohio Valley mounds to learn more.  Since then, archaeology into those ancient cultures have nearly stopped.  It is clear to a mind that asks questions and makes observations based in reality that the Native American Graves Protection Act was to serve as a similar means of historic scientific editing as the barbarians that burnt down the Library of Alexandria which I think was one of the most epic catastrophes that ever occurred on earth—not in enormity—but in what was lost to history.  By utilizing the Smithsonian Institute interpretation of historical documentation—which has done some fantastic work over the years but is in all actuality—a single source only validated by National Geographic which  also has a Washington D.C. home base—laws were written to protect a line of dialogue that supported a progressive interpretation of Native American occupation supporting a world view using Christopher Columbus as a benchmark in history.   I’m not one to say that those scientific organizations are not valuable, but they are certainly inspired by the climate of politics within the city that they operate.  Thus, they are committed to the progressive outlook shaped by legislation and the dialogue of abused rights attributed to an invented class of citizens called, “Native Americans.” 



As proof, the ancient city of Cahokia was noticed as recently as 1923 while a neighborhood was being constructed upon its ruins.  Builders at the time thought the pyramids on the site were just hills.  By 1966 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Then in 1982 it was listed as only one of twenty-three World Heritage Sites.  It is one of the most archaeologically significant places on earth and standing atop the large mound there, which is the third largest in the known world—you can see downtown St. Louis—that’s how close it is yet so far away from mainstream thought.  Since then there have been excavations but the work has been extremely limited.  It’s a wonderful state park but scientists are no closer to understanding the people of Cahokia than they were in 1982. All the theories were essentially published at that time and the park system of the historic site has maintained that dialogue since.  Because of the Native American Graves Protection Act all science in that area must be given approval by caretakers of Indian tribes as if they had anything to do with the Cahokian site. But because of politics, they have been given authority to limit scientific evaluation—incorrectly. The process is essentially the same as using the EPA to stop business development, or a township zoning commission to prevent healthy new economic growth within a community. The Native American Graves Protection Act keeps the story of the Ohio Valley giants suppressed by authentic science leaving us only to speculate.


When you hear of firsthand accounts such as what was provided by Zophar Roberts, which then was reflected by Abraham Lincoln as he traveled prior to his presidency on the campaign trail and saw many of the same speculations—we get a glimpse into the archaeological world as it should have evolved—with an open mind and a natural human curiosity that could evolve with the facts as they were presented.   Over the last century there have been many political factions tied directly to religion and a global dialogue shaped but a philosophy established on Greek assumptions that whatever happened prior to Christopher Columbus didn’t matter.  All that does matter is from the perspective of a modern interpretation of a reality formed by religious foundations.  These giants which likely reside today in the unexcavated mounds of Miamisburg, Ohio—and many, many other places are part of a history that modern politics wants to forget—and so far they have been allowed to edit the scientific fact toward that reality.  But thanks to stories which crawl out from under unmolested sources—we sometimes get a window into the world before such corruption took place.  And to really understand America and our very lives within a historical context, we must always accept new evidence as it makes itself known.   To that effect, I give a lot of weight to the account of Zophar Roberts.  It at least inspires further excavation in places untouched by science—Miamisburg is the perfect location.  If nothing is within that mound contrary to the Smithsonian account of the Adena and Hopewell Indians—so be it.  But we’ll never know unless we look.  I suggest a repeal of The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act.  Then I suggest funding excavation of these sites without political limits by private sector money and what we will find is more along the lines of Zophar Roberts rather than National Geographic.  We will never know unless we give it an honest shot and so long as the government has its hands in science—we never will.  Science needs to be driven by the private sector—and then the truth will be revealed.
