White Indians

Indigenize yourself...
This past summer of 2009 at the Rainbow Gathering in New Mexico, I met
a cool hippie chick who turned me on to a promo copy of a book that
blew my mind, and still does. It somehow seems fitting to have come
into this awakening in New Mexico, because there’s such a strong
indigenous presence there, and the Gathering was really good that
time.
I ingested this literary sunburst in about an hours time, and was
transported into an ancient pre-historic world…not of the Hopi or
Lakota…but of my own European ancestors, far back down the genetic
ladder into a post-Neolithic eden on 7 islands off the coast of
Africa. These cave-dwelling Caucasians were living in the Stone-Age
even during the European Renaissance, in a female-friendly pyramid
building tribal culture, a few thousand years removed from
civilization, as it existed then.
“The White Indians of Nivaria” by Gordon Kennedy, is about the Guanche
Indians, the very last Indo-European tribes to live in the Stone-Age,
all the while mummifying their ancestors, building pyramids and
preserving their ancient religion.
After reading this I believe I have finally found the missing link to
my own indigenous past...a historical connection into a spiritual
lineage, somewhere beyond the western edge of my dreams, on some
tropical Atlantic island paradise inhabited by the children of my
ancestors. It's a piece of hard anthropological science that reads
like an enchanted primal vision, a forgotten chapter in European
pre-history that reveals a rare Western model on an eden-like volcanic
archipelago inhabited by a female friendly indigenous population of
beautiful Troggs.
Oral traditions about the Guanches are very scarce in the English
language, and even rarer in America. Blond natives cast in an
indigenized script, with stone tools, aboriginal language and
primitive innocence in cave homes... eventually at odds with Spanish
conquistadors, resulting in slavery, exploitation, deforestation,
extinction, etc. This is one of a kind because these folks were still
living in the Stone-Age as late as the European Renaissance. A
pre-Christian Western culture with a tropical island native flavor.
Some medieval mariners felt that the Canary Islands must be the
beginning of the Indies, and a lot of maps from that period show many
island chains that never even existed. But this did give Columbus the
curious impulse to explore a bit further, and he launched his voyage
to America from the Canary island of Gomera on September 6, 1492.
Columbus and his crew were sailing under the Spanish monarchy, and
were speaking mostly Spanish on that voyage. There is ample evidence
that the Spanish word "Indios" (Indians) was used on both sides of the
Atlantic, both for the Guanches and the native tribes in the
Caribbean.
Regarding the word "Indios," (Indians) American Indian professor of
history & attorney Robert A. Williams, said this is how the word came
to be used for the native Americans too:
"it's a topic rife with controversy and dissension. I go to the
source, his (Columbus) journals indicate he thought he had discovered
the "Indies" which had been called such since Alexander the Great's
time : "In 33 days I passed from the Canary Islands to the Indies" (en
33 días pasé de las islas de Canaria a las Indias). he then describes
the inhabitants: "To the first [island] which I found I gave the name
San Salvador . . . the Indians call it Guanahaní" (A la primera que yo
hallé puse nombre San Salvador . . . los Indios la llaman Guanahaní).
He makes at least another ten references to either India, the Indies,
and Indios.
for what it's worth."
Such a voice and perspective on indigenous European pre-history
from an innocent and aboriginal source like this provides a healthy
antidote to the modern-day spiritually challenged corporate Cro-Magnon
ideology currently permeating Western civilization. To our modern
world the literary Tarzan (born 1912) and his female companion have
come to be a fictionalized replacement for the memory of the
Guanches....free, wild and at one with nature. But The White Indians
of Nivaria is the original historically accurate account of noble
heroes and beautiful women living wild in their African island eden,
with legends retold for centuries by the Greeks and Romans. I deeply
feel that a lot of the modern-day burners, Rainbows & hippies are
really just dis-inherited Guanches, displaced and disinherited by the
Corporate whores, and our indigenous roots have been erased from the
history books..
There's an ultra-cool you tube under the same title as the book:
