The Primitive Culture of Dogons is a most fascinating discovery for modern man. For this culture of simplicity , untouched and unknown until recently, might hold the keys to unlock the
mysteries of modern day man ..his roots and  religions. Sometimes, if you can't solve the mystery on one end of the spectrum, it is suggested to try it from the other end. And the
Dogons is definately the opposite end of the spectrum of Modern Day Man.  Taking this into account let's take a look at the Dogons and their beliefs.

The DOGON Culture , untouched by the influence of modern religion , still live by the words of their ancient ancestors, abiding by a tradition that has been past down to them by spiritual
guides and teachers  that came from the stars, called NOMMOS.

Although modern day theologians would like to sweep this under the rug, the story is out and is here to stay. Unfortunately there are only few that are  'aware' enough  to believe and
understand the significance of this ancient and primitive tradition. But for those of you that want to hear, the Dogons have a story to tell:

The Dogons believe that in ancient times, an aquatic culture came to them from out of the sky. Human looking beings, acting as saviors and spiritual guardians, landed close to their
village in a space ship described to have 3 triangular legs. Being that they were amphibious, upon landing, they filled a reservoir of water onto the land. Exiting their ship was done by
diving into this reservoir.  How strange and frightening this must have been to the Dogon of this time! After the initial arrival, the Dogons realized that much like our amphibious
creatures today, the NOMMOS were able to adapt to both environments, thus although their primary home would be water, they were still able to walk , talk and live on land. Another
thing that was so amazing about these star people was in the fact they had shapeshifting abilities. Whether it was done by mersmerization or not is unknown to me.

As Dogon legend has it, the Nommo divided his body among men to feed them, thus giving them  Nommo's  life principles.
"As the Universe had drunk of his body; the Nommo also made men drink"
I find an interesting similarity here with the body and blood of Christ used our Christian Religions.

The Nommo was crucified  and resurrected, again to visit the Earth, this time in the form of a human.
Later he will assume his amphibious form and will rule the world from the waters.
Here again we see another similarity in the Christian Faith of Christ's crucification, resurrection and return.

Although primitive in today's standards and completely cut off from the world, the Dogon Tribe has advanced knowledge of our solar system. What the Dogons knew thousands of  
years ago our scientists only came to discover  in 1978, which was the dwarf star Sirius B. They not only knew about it but could point to its locality.  Their claim to this knowledge came
from  the Nommo.
The knew, that Sirius A, the brightest sky in our sky is next to a small white dwarf called Sirius B.

Reports of the Fish Gods are found all over the world , whether it be in our research of ancient history or in the study of modern day theology. Interestingly, even though these cultures
are seperated by time and space, their descriptions of the Fish Gods are remarkably similar . The priests try to honor the fish gods by dressing with a fish robe and headset. even today,
our Christian tradition symbolizes Christ with the sign of the 'fish'.  The Dogon tradition claims that these alien visitors came from Sirius, the Constellation of the Dog. Southwest Indians
still today, look to the Dog Star as their home and seek psychic guidance from it. We have taught our children to look at the Dog Star and make a wish '
When you wish upon a star...
makes no difference where you are...."
Disney . The sailors have always carried the tales of the mythical sireens or mermaids.

Examples of other cultures who worshiped Amphibian Deities and Gods

Babylon :  The Babylonians history tells of the fish gods who brought civilization to their people. OANNES or OE was the  principal god, who came from the GREAT EGG.  During the day
he stayed with the people on land, but at night   he returned to the Sea. The Babylonians called his kind ANNEDOTUS.

Sumerian: The Sumerians called the Fish God, "Enki" or "Ea"- It was in Sumer where their kingship first descended from   heaven. EA was thought to live in the 'APSU' or submarine

Phillistines: The Phillistines worshiped two amphibian dieties, DAGON and ATARGIS . They described them as human  type beings with tails of fish.

Egyptian:  Pharos,  in northern Egypt , was said to be the home of 'THE OLD MAN OF THE SEA., a shape-shifting    amphibious deity known as PROTEUS, , son of OCEANUS and
renowned among ancient  Greeks as an oracle. Traditional legends specifically claimed that he often sheltered in a cave to avoid the heat of Sirius.

Greek Culture Poseidon, God from the sea.

Zulu Tribes of Africa

     have an account of the star people as well. Supporting the account of the Zulu Tribe is the evidence of their
            remarkable cave drawings and objects. The spiritual leader , Credo Mutwa, of the Zulu tribe in Africa once said
         that the Zulus had  similar experiences and knowledge of the NOMMO.    His story is quite similiar as to the
            Dogon account, except that instead of building a reservoir by making a whole in the ground and filling it with
           water, the Nommo landed in a valley and caused it to rain, thus filling the valley with water. But just like the
             Dogons, the Nommo came to them and told them that they were from the Star Sirius.
There has been at least one documentary movie on this subject. It shows the inside of the cave, and the drawings.
The spacecraft in references can be clearly seen in these drawings.

Dogon People and their Beliefs (Amman and Lebe)

To the Dogon People, the story of the Creator is quite simple and hopefully I can relate it just as simply.

Here are the Primaries:

In the Beginning:
Amman was the Creator.
He soon multiplied to become six pairs of twins, which is a metaphor for our original 12 strand DNA.
Our present physical DNA  contains 2 strands which hold the genetic codes for our
physical evolvement
Amman created an egg (universe) from which all things would come.
He balanced this universe with equal but opposite pairs ie, good and bad, male and female, spiritual, physical . All things created came in pairs (dual, binary)
Note the similarity here
with the 2's and pairs in Noah's Ark replenishing the earth with pairs, everything came in binary.
Could binary numbers then be part of  the universal code for creation???
The creation of duality held no exception, including Amman. He would become creator/god on one side of the coin and the universe on the other side, thus spiritual and physical, female
and masculine.

Amman's Egg was full of Nommos.
The Nommos (in pairs) are the primeval life giving forces (Christian version of creation angels)
Nommos were given a 'free hand in creating life'

TWINS (The twin analogy, YIN /YANG can be found in most religious traditions all around the world)
This is a metaphor for one source/soul splitting into two polarities...the yin/yang, when it enters into the electro-magnetic energies of third dimensions.

They created YURUGUA
The Nommos made a mistake in the creation process.
Not taking into consideration their dual personality, they mistakenly allowed their darker side to manifest itself in the manly form of the unpredictable YURUGA.
This twin rebelled against the order established by Amma, thereby destabelizing it, creating CHAOS.. (Chaos Theory).

Undoing the Damage:
In order to purify the cosmos and restore its order, the Nommo created LEBE.
Lebe was absolutely PERFECT.  

The First Sacrifice:

Lebe and Yuruga had to have a show down of which they both had to suffer an early and violent death. The sacrificed body of Lebe was then cut up and scattered throughout the

New Plan for Creation:
Eliminating the first mistake in creation, Amman and the Nommo went back to the work of creating the rest of the world and  all things, keeping with the original binary design of two's.
(everything even today in the Dogon world is made divided, multiplied or in some way calculated using two, four , six, eight,..If it worked for Amman and the Nommo , it was definatly a
working plan for the Dogons. We need not laugh at the simplicity of the Dogon here, because think about how our computer language is set up...binary).

New Plan Worked and Time to Go Home:
With creation out of the way and Earth seeded with man it was time to go home. With regret the nearly formed Dogons watched with sadness as their gods left them .
(Here again we
can see that  the Christian traditions agreed with their tradition in Genesis ..'When the angels walked with man..."

The Dogons spiritual leader is called a Hogan. It is his job to remember the history and number system that governs their lives, which he passes down to his successor which again
will do the same. The Hogon, and everyone else, are fully aware that there is both good and bad in everything so everyone is watched very closely by everyone else in case some
horrible imbalance occurs. Villages are built in pairs, houses and stores are built with eight rooms, and there are sixteen special stones in the Hogon's house - eight for Hogons past
and eight for the future successors. There is no real government and although the country has a 'Supreme Hogon' the ordinary villages consist of extended families with the eldest and
most respected male taking on the spiritual leadership role.
The religious beliefs of the Dogon, although simple,  are in again enormously complex and knowledge of them varies greatly within Dogon society.
Dogon religion is defined primarily through the worship of the ancestors and the spirits whom they encountered as they slowly migrated from their obscure ancestral homelands to the
Bandiagara cliffs.

There are three principal cults among the Dogon; the Awa, Lebe and Binu.

The Awa is a cult of the dead, whose purpose is to reorder the spiritual forces disturbed by the death of the Nommo life force.
Members of the Awa cult dance with ornate carved and painted masks during both funeral and death anniversary ceremonies. There are 78 different types of ritual masks among the
Dogon and their iconographic messages go beyond the aesthetic, into the realm of religion and philosophy. The primary purpose of Awa dance ceremonies is to lead souls of the
deceased to their final resting place in the family altars and to consecrate their passage to the ranks of the ancestors.
*The 78 ritual masks can also be represented by the 78 cards in the Torah deck

The Dogon say that their astronomical knowledge was given to them by the Nommo. The Dogon elder, Ogotemelli, describes them variously as having the upper part as a man and the
lower portion as snake; or as having a ram's head with serpent body

The cult of Lebe, the Earth God, is primarily concerned with the agricultural cycle and its chief priest is called a Hogon. All Dogon villages have a Lebe shrine whose altars have bits of
earth incorporated into them to encourage the continued fertility of the land. . According to Dogon beliefs, the god Lebe visits the hogons every night in the form of a serpent and licks
their skins in order to purify them and infuse them with life force. The hogons are responsible for guarding the purity of the soil and therefore officiate at many agricultural ceremonies.

The cult of Binu is a totemic practice and it has complex associations with the Dogon’s sacred places used for ancestor worship, spirit communication and agricultural sacrifices.

Binu shrines house spirits of mythic ancestors who lived in the legendary era before the appearance of death among mankind. Binu spirits often make themselves known to their
descendants in the form of an animal that interceded on behalf of the clan during its founding or migration, thus becoming the clan’s totem. The priests of each Binu maintain the
sanctuaries whose facades are often painted with graphic signs and mystic symbols. Sacrifices of blood and millet porridge (the primary crop of the Dogon) are made at the Binu
shrines at sowing time and whenever the intercession of the immortal ancestor is desired. Through such rituals, the Dogon believe asks a question hat the benevolent force of the
ancestor is transmitted to the
Amaguime Dolu, a diviner in the village of Bongo, performs a ritual. He derives meaning
and makes predictions from grids and symbols in the sand. At dusk, he draws a questions
in the sand for the sacred fox to answer. Believing the fox to have supernatural powers, the
Dogon leaves an offering  of millet, milk and peanuts, asks a question and returns in the
morning to interpret the answer from the fox's footprints left behind the night before.

Comments from Judith Hedden of the Sand Grid Divination
Translation thru Sacred Geometry
Am so impressed with this that I  must comment on the picture of
the sand grid divination. First that the Egyptian culture is the only
one who used squares to depict astrological houses based on
the pyramid inch of 120. Cause 4 X 30 = 120.
In the picture. of the Dogon sand grid note the
squares, a couple show the Mayan five bar, where 1 clealy
depicts the count of 8 with its 3 circles on the bars left.

Even more interesting to me is the fox divination. Translate the
word fox to #'s in the English alphabet giving the #'s 6-15-24 . To
an example base pair 14 , add each of the above to it separately
= 20-29-38. Now add these last three #'s together = 87. 87 reads
from right is 78, which is # of cards in the Torah deck. The word
Fox translates to the # 41 . Subtract the base # 14 from the # 41 =
27. The zero count of 27 (1 more ) = 28, being the Egyptian small
cubic which is half (1/2) of our mathematics base. (1/2) read from
right is the cubic
inch. Amazing ! Coincidence, I don't think so.
Could the Dogons hold the clue to the Mysteries of our Ancient Ancestors. Although a primitive culture, it seems that visitors from Space contacted them eons ago with the very mysteries of
the universe. The information the Dogons have  has remained intact all these years, untouched and not influenced by outside cultures.
Listen to Mary Sutherland Interview Laird Scranton on the valuable clues that the Dogons give us on the mysteries of how the Universe and Man was really created.

The Egyptians focused on the star Sirius. The Dogan tradition was involved with the Sirius
star system - Sirius, and Sirius B and Sirius C (B & C, are definitions used by later
researchers, used now, for the sake of Brevity). ...... The three Sirius suns collectively
make up a solar system unique in the universe ..... The full Sirius system is important to
the Dogon. Ironically it is the unseen portion of the system that is linked to the essence of
their religion. . Sirius C , translated from the Dogon language (and then into English) is
called the "Sun of Women"

Sirius C ( the Sun of Women ) is described by the Dogan as "the seat of the female souls
of living or future beings" . Its symbol contains two pair of lines that are relevant features of
a Dogan legend. They believe that Sirius C "sends out two pairs of beams" - and that the
beams represent "a feminine figure " . The legend has an addenda that seems to
underline the fact that the subject at hand is not astronomy - "It is the only star which emits
these beams" ... I must step out of context to share some most relevant examples. A great
many of the most ancient of Egyptian temples , such as the temple of Isis at Denerah,
were created so that the light of the helical rising of Sirius would travel down the main
corridor to place its red glow upon the altar in the inner sanctum of the temple - when that
light reached the altar, the beam of light from Sirius was transformed into Sothis , the Star
Goddess. In a manner of speaking, the same belief system was involved in the Greek
Temples, such as the Parthenon, which were oriented to receive the beams of light from
the Pleiades into their inner sanctums, where the beams were then transformed into
seven women ... Research is currently in progress , to validate a similar transformation.
As the beams from the Pleiades entered Egyptian temples of Hathor , and became the 7
Hathors/Kittikas, female judges of mankind. All of this was researched and recorded
(from Mali, to Egypt, to Greece) decades, even centuries, prior to the first utterance of that
classic phrase, "Beam me up Scotty".

Within the Dogon tradition, those pairs of feminine figures beamed down from the
star/sun/planet of Women to their original home near the Hoggar mountains , bringing
many aspects of civilization to the ancestors of their tribes
Dogons Could Hold the Answer to the Mysteries of Our Past
Dogons were visited by the ancient astronauts, Noomos. This aquatic civilization came from the Srius Constellation , landing in the land of the Dogons where they taught the people the
knowledge of Creation and Life Forces

Clif High of the Webbot Project who lives in the Seatle area makes
much of the similarities he sees between the stories of the Salish
peoples of the Northwest and the Dogan beliefs.

Clif High believes the Nommo are the original parents of the
Human race while the Anunnaki are a much more recent and less
advanced race. Some of his Webbot predictions involve the return
of the Nommo - NOW.  

Referred to me by  Michael Rosenthal

The information on the Nommo's That I have seen is that they are
a reptilian race of beings. There is a Time life book out
Unexplained Mysteries from the 80's that describe the Dogon Tribe
and the Nommo's,also there are other articles out describing them
as Reptilian!
The Merepeople  refer to Dogon and Nommos
