The Tribe of Dann and the Lost Tribe of Israel
Mary Sutherland 2004
Language points to Native American Indian Contacts with the Tribe of Dann


Dene tribes (the name used for themselves by the Apache and other Athabaskans, i.e., Navajo) are derived from the Han tribe in China, thereby fitting in with traditional scholarship explaining the
origin of many of the cultures in the western portion of America.

Research has shown a Celtic element in Dene, presumably via the Italic-Celtic of the Tokharian B dialect of the northern Tarim Oases and the Sino-Tibetan border of Kan-su, or else via more
recent incursions of Celtic culture across the Atlantic.

Apache (Dene (Dine) from Dan meaning people (also includes Navajo) comes from apachu which is a derivitive of Ponchteca, a  Mayan name for trading people, which is a Zuni word for enemy.
Apaches also called themselves Tinde or lnde (a.k.a. Dene). They were late comers to America from Asia, from the time of Ghengis Khan's Mongol escapades (1233- 1300) up to the 1400's and
even later. They were excellent horsemen. The same area of China where the red-headed and white people are buried is a high plateau and mountainous area containing a people (today) who
are the best horsemen in Asia and who spend much of their lives on horses. Is there a possibility these Apache and Navajo (Dene) peoples were influenced so much by Danites (who drifted
eastward from their captivity in Assyria before turning and heading west) that they called themselves after that name?

Alibamu Indians similarity to the Hebrew word, Oholibamah, meaning tent-dweller.

Mandan is a Siouan word. Mandans called themselves Numakik,meaning people.
There is some evidence that the Sioux red people were seeded by the Danites Ireland and Scandinavia. Many similarities exist, including their tall statures and their same sweat lodges. Ref: The
Kensington Rune Stone

The Arikara were Tanish, meaning original people. Dan (people) and ish  which is the Semitic morpheme for human being.

Rok means crow of bird people. Absaroke is  is the Crow Indian name for themselves. Rok is a morpheme and is also the snake totem (same as Tribe of Dan). Note also Tanith is the Patron saint
of Carthaginian sailors. (Note Dan (Tan) and Esau/ Phoenicia)

Hopi(u) - means peaceful ones . note similarity to Habiru - Hebrew i.e., moqui

Ojibwa (Anishinabe) means the first people. Note ish is aSemitic for human being. The Chippewa (Ojibwas) and Chippenham are probably variations of the same morpheme seen in Kjobnhann
(Copenhagen), which is pronounced almost identically to Chippenham by the Danes.

Cherokee have said they have been told they are the lost children of Israel.

Early reports from North America include reference to Samoset, the Wampanoag chief who walked out of the woods to greet the Pilgrims in almost perfect English.

There are many references to Gaelic (Welsh) and Hebrew speakers who claimed to be able to communicate with the North American natives in their mother tongue.

The Salishan (Flathead) tribes of the Northwest called themselves Se-lic, a name reminiscent of the Salic Franks of the time before Charlemagne, a time known as the Migration of the
Peoples.What is even more interesting is that a sub-tribe of these Flatheads called themselves Tuadhu (pronounced thingyhu). This is the exact same name as the general proper name for
Franks and other Teutonic tribes, all meaning, The People.  Note also the connection to the red headed Tuatha de Danaan.

Ida Jane Gallagher, in some interesting research, found that whites in Connecticut wanted Indian land for themselves and on April 24, 1729, negotiated with Chief Squantz of the Schaghticoke, a
tribe of Algonquin lineage, for it. The deed was recorded on May 9,1729, and is deposited in the archives of the State Capitol in Hartford, Connecticut, today. The signatures (marks) of the thirteen
chiefs appeared to be a syllabary or alphabet. Dr. Barry Fell has linked them to Basque and Ogam, the Indian deed signatures being the first or first and second syllables of the chiefs names. Fell
earlier had deciphered the Cypro-Minoan signatures of Abenaki chiefs on a 1729 treaty with the British in Nova Scotia, Algonkian signatures on the Nipomuck Indian deed to Sutton,
Massachusetts, (1681), and others. Dr. Fell says that the Cree/Objibwa syllabary used today has many matches with ancient Basque inscriptions. Epigraphers and linguists are learning that
Amerindians had writing systems long before Colonial times.

The Cherokee tell of a 'white god' that appeared and gave them the knowledge of the written language. Later they were tricked by another white man and the knowledge of writing was taken away
from them.

All these (above) have been possibilities of Dan and/or other Israelite tribes mixed in with (or having direct influence on) Amerindians. Briefly, can we find possible Esau-ites (Phoenicians) in
America in Indian tribal names?

Chitimacha (man altogether red) inhabited the Louisiana gulf Coast since 600 B.C.E.

Fox (Sauk-Fox) Meskwakihug or Meskwakie  neabs Red Earth People which refers to Atlantis  - These are Muskogean.

Catawba (also Muskogean) called themselves Esaw , meaning people .  Muskogean is of the Sioux linguistic stock.

Barry Fell said the alphabets in ancient America include Arabic, Berber, Carthaginian, Celtic, Cree, Cypriot, Greek, Hebrew, Hiragana, Iberian, Kufi, Latin, Libyan, Minoan, Nashki, Norse, Punic,
Tifinag. Tifinag, remember, is an alphabet, not a language. Any language can be made using Tifinag. Pima is Arabic or Semitic derived from Iberian Punic. Zuni is North African (Libyan).

Fell thinks of the Pima Indians as descendants of some Celt-Iberian tribe that had been converted to the use of the Punic language by Phoenician colonists in Spain, and whose more
adventurous members migrated to the Lands Beyond the Sunset under Phoenician leadership.(West)

His first attention was to a white leather sun-disk in the Pueblo materials in the Peabody Museum of Archaeology at Harvard University, which had been obtained from New Mexico after a religious
ceremony of the Shiwi (Zuni) in 1891. On it was painted the Libyan letters T-M, a formula adopted in Egypt as the phonetic rendering of Atum

ShupShe, a learned Indian scholar of high rank in the Mide Grand Medicine Lodge of the Miami-Potawatomi of Indiana, suggested that both the story-content and the actual vocabulary of these
North African tales may have reached the Pima from visiting Arab-Berber traders in pre-Columbian times or even later. Koranic influence is apparent in the story of the Flood of Noah. Greek
influence appears in the myth of Persephone and the Fables of Aesop. Many of the petroglyphs in the deserts of Nevada, California, and Idaho (Wees Bar) are similar to those of North Africa,
including the name Mohammed and Koranic religious expressions.

Balboa and other early explorers referred to scattered groups of white Indians, black Indians, and traditions of pygmies .. white, North African tribes in the American Southwest that the Hopi, Zuni,
Papago, Pueblo, etc. called the ancient ones,and whom we call Anasazi, Hohokam, and Mogollion. The big question, besides who were they originally, is where did they disappear to between

Dr. James L. Guthrie wrote in his Comparison of Gene Frequency Distributions about the Melungeons, one of about 200 isolate populations of the Eastern U.S. who seem to be a union of
Europeans, Amerindians, and Blacks.
The Melungians of Tennessee, Virginia, and North Carolina, including the Lumbee Indians, are unique. His studies conclude that the Black portion turns out
to be Portuguese; also, none of them are Indians. Rollin Gillespie (a member of the Epigraphic Society) postulates that these Melungeons descended from Milesians, the founders of Milan, who
fled their Anatolian homeland in 494 B.C.E. Most went to Ireland and Iceland by way of Cadiz. Gillespie relates Caesar's difficulty in driving the Melungeons from their island stronghold in 52 B.C.E.,
and suggests that some escaped to America. A portion of the story tells that they were the friendly White Indians who absorbed the ost Colony of Roanoke in 1587, an idea supported by the
appearance among the Melungeons of family names that were present In the Roanoke colony.

Henriette Mertz, in Atlantis, Dwelling Place of the Gods, presents the case for immigration by Christian Portuguese to Florida in 734 to escape the Moors. Anthropologists studied a sample, 177
people from Hanthingy County, Tennessee, and Lee County, Virginia, and the results showed the Melungeons to be Caucasian: more like Portuguese than English, with negligible input from
Blacks or Indians. Briefly, all the data shows no distinguishing differences between Melungeons and certain people of Libya, the Canary Islands, Malta, Italy, Portugal, and Spain. This distribution
generates a map, almost, of the Phoenician, or Sea-People settlements. Nearly as close were certain populations of Ireland, Sweden, France, Britain, Germany, and the Netherlands. Again, where
we find Phoenicians being traced anywhere, Dan was among them.

To conclude this, to this day the Portuguese laugh at the traditional story of Columbus. They themselves had mapped Newfoundland and Nova Scotia by 1424 and their knowledge seems to have
been based on centuries of transatlantic navigation. Note, too, that some of the Mediterranean people (Phoenicians and Danites) were called Phoinikes, meaning redskins.

To return briefly to Dan and Phoenicia in America, there was the legend of St. Brendan,(Tribe of Dan) who, with a party of 17 monks, made a voyage to America in a leather ship 400 years before
the Vikings and 1,000 years before Columbus (all documented in Latin texts dating back at least to 800 C.E.). The round-trip voyage took seven years. He reported things like pillars of crystal
floating in the sea (icebergs). The boat was made of 49 ox hides stitched over a wooden frame like a patchwork quilt. Tim Severn tells about finding in Ari, the Learned Book of the Icelanders,
dated 1133, a report that Vikings found books, bells, and croziers left by Irish priests on Iceland. In Greenland, the first Norse reported finding stone huts and fragments of skin boats. These were
not Eskimo boats, different completely from their kayaks.


Another voyage by an Irishman (Danite) across the Atlantic was that of Cuchulainn. The two best known figures of South America are Quetzalcoatl and Kukulcan, both reputed to be white men who
arrived from and departed to the east. According to Mayan records, Kukulcan arrived in 987 A.D. The Mayan hieroglyphic dates have been verified by radiocarbon dating. I will skip the original and
lengthy story, but the conclusion is that an Irish oral history has an Irishman named Cuchulainn traveling westward to a new land and retuming...and also accounts written in South America told that
a white man  named Kukulcan arrived from the east, stayed awhile, then returned to his home. My interest in this is, of course, that we have just another record (of many) of Dan sailing all over the
world and especially of his coming to the Americas.

...and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

Jean Hunt tells how she read Lewis Spences Atlantis in America and of her finding in it an explanation of who the Cabiri were. Spence apparently quoted Sanconiathon as saying that the cult of the
Cabiri was of Carthaginian origin and of its being associated with Osiris. The cult of the Cabiri appears to have been brought from North Africa to Egypt and Greece. What is interesting about these
Cabiri is that they are said to have been the inventors of boats, of the arts of hunting and fishing, and of building and husbandry. They also invented the art of writing and the use of salt and of
Ref: Blessing given to Esau and Jacob ie. Phoenicia and Israel

Ignatius Donnelly in his Atlantis: The Antediluvian World. Among the ancient nations, there was a general belief that the art of writing was known to the antediluvians. The Druids, for example,
believed in books more ancient than the Flood. They styled them "the books of Pheryllt, and the writings of Pridian or Hu"  Berosus, speaking of the time before the Deluge, says:Oannes (Noah)
wrote concerning the generations of mankind and their civil polity   Noah would have lived during the time of the Anunnaki influence. )

If you can put Noah as Oannes, than you can then make the connection as well to the Dogans, which has the purest record of history of the time when the people came from the sky and taught
them the secrets of the universe.

The Little People , Esau and Druidism

Continuing with Jean Hunt, the Hebrews preserved a tradition that the Ad-ami, the people of Ad, or Adlantis, possessed, while yet dwelling in Paradise, the art of writing.
Jean Hunt attempted to prove that the little people found in most of the coastal regions of the world were survivors of the flood of Atlantis. Most if not all these people were found on coastal areas
of earth, and were red people.

Could these people been (Esau-ites) , which would have fit with the blessings given Esau by his father Isaac.
Further conjecture would make creditable our belief that the Gods themselves taught Adam and Eve in the Garden how to do many things, writing perhaps being one of them. Shem could have
brought books across the Flood with him and given them to Abraham, who passed them on down his own line. Shem, may have been also whom Genesis refers to as Melchizedek. BUT Shem also
means...those that came down from the Sky. Which again fits right in with the Dogon History .

Where, then, are these books today? Probably not in existence now, although some might have crossed over the Flood only to disappear later, but not before parts of them had been copied or
memorized then written later. Again, the only complete reference to this period of time is found in the Dogon tradition.

Several Christian writers allude to the existence of a Druidic literature in ancient Ireland. We are told that St. Patrick, in his Roman Catholic religious zeal, burnt 180 books belonging to the Irish
Druids. Also St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland...Snakes referring to the Dan Tribe?

Druids knew and used Ogam (.the Ancient written language of the Celtic nations )Reading and writing were against the law during that time. The Druids also had available to them the Mysteries of
Alchemy which were found in their ancient books later to be destroyed.

Fferyllt remains in modern Welsh as "fferyllydd" for chemist or pharmacist. Fferyllt is referred to as "Druid Alchemists" ..."Books of Merlyn"
Lay persons illegally learning and using Ogam were given the geasa, the Druid death curse. With both Caesar's (Tribe of Dan) and later the Christian persecutions, Druidism disappeared from
public view. A 14th century Irish monk prevented its total loss when he copied some 70 versions of it from older manuscripts into the Ogam Tract of the Book of Ballymote, now in the Irish Museum
in Dublin, Ireland. Robert Graves and Barry Fell both discovered and reported it (both independently) in modern books, The White Goddess by Graves and America B. C. by Fell.(23)

It is these (alphabets and written languages) that Fell and others have found engraved in rocks all over the North and South American continents, Europe, North Africa, and other places. That
Europeans, Asians, and Africans had no contact with this land before Columbus is a fantasy, still held, unfortunately, by some die hard professionals who stick to their own pet theories and refuse
to look at, or seriously consider, the facts.

According to the Wikipedia the term “Reaching Heaven” is a
common description in temple tower inscriptions. The name Babylon
derives from the native Akkadian ‘Bab-ilu’, which means ‘Gate or
Gateways of the Gods’.

Based off these descriptions, the purpose of the ziggurats or great
temple towers, such as Babylon, may have included “Heavenly
Gateways” or “Transport Stations” for the gods.
