- The Facts: Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, a Professor Emeritus at Montana State University who is Cherokee/Choctaw has been researching the Star People, and collecting encounters between them and Native Indians for many years. This article shares one of many.
- Reflect On: Are we alone? If not, what are the implications when the public becomes fully aware of this? How will it change the way we look at reality? Science? Technology? History?
Despite the fact that this topic has been considered a “conspiracy theory” for years, any intelligent person who actually decides to take a gander at the evidence cannot really deny the existence of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) as well as the idea that some of them may actually be piloted by extraterrestrial beings from somewhere else in the multiverse. As far as UFOs go, there is physical evidence in the form of materials from downed crafts, radar trackings, pictures and videos. When it comes to the extraterrestrial hypothesis, there are witness testimonies from generals, other high ranking government officials, whistleblowers, and astronauts from all over the world. The fact that these crafts perform maneuvers no known man-made aircraft can also contributes to the extraterrestrial hypothesis.
Another factor to consider is the vast amount of stories that date back thousands of years told by several cultures all over the world, from ancient lore all the way to modern day lore. Indigenous cultures from North America are a great example.
My people tell of Star People who came to us many generations ago. The Star people brought spiritual teachings and stories and maps of the cosmos and they offered these freely. They were kind, loving and set a great example. When they left us, my people say there was a loneliness like no other. (source)
For the past few months, I’ve been sharing the work of Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, a Professor Emeritus at Montana State University who is Cherokee/Choctaw and has been researching the Star People and collecting encounters between them and Native Indians for many years. She first learned about the “Star People” when her grandmother told her the ancient legends of her people. I’ve written about a story she shared regarding an elder who told a story about a ship that crashed on his reservation. You can read that story here. I wrote about another elder who shared a story of a petrified alien heart, which he claimed belonged to the Star People, and you can read that one here. My last one was about the stories told by indigenous elders about Star People who are currently, and have been for a long time, living inside of the Earth. You can read that one here.
This will be my fourth article sharing the stories Dr. Clarke compiled in her book, Encounters With Star People, Untold Stories of American Indians.
Chapter three is titled “Sometimes they come for families.” Right off the bat I find this interesting because having been a researcher into the phenomena myself for a very long time, I know that the idea that some of these beings are ‘taking’ people, families, and in some cases large communities is not uncommon.
It might sound scary, but the truth is that within the lore, many of these beings don’t have much interest in hurting or harming us. That being said, there are stories of both malevolent and benevolent types of beings, but for the most part it does not seem that the various groups visiting us mean us any harm. There are things happening that we don’t understand, or perhaps we’re not capable of understanding, yet some of these events we might perceive in a fearful, harmful way. When it comes to supposed abduction stories and the claims made by tens of thousands of people, there are many consistencies in their stories. It’s truly a very interesting issue to look into, but that’s a different story.
One example Dr. Clarke shares in her book is as follows:
In 1930, a fur trapper named Arnaud Laurent and his son saw a strange light and an unusual aircraft crossing the northern sky toward Lake Anjikuni in northern Canada.
