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.
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. She shared a story regarding an elder who told about a ship that crashed on his reservation. There is another elder who shared a story of a petrified alien heart, which he claimed belonged to the Star People. The other stories told by indigenous elders about Star People who are currently, and have been for a long time, living inside of the Earth.
“Sometimes they come for families.” Right off the bat I find this interesting because having been exposed 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. 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.
