    all of whom can now be positively identified and that they describe incidents for which there is now supporting historical documentation In my judgement the information in these twenty verses could only have been obtained from native sources the twenty additional verses are patently authentic Another criticism that has been offered is that the Delaware words in the native verses may be found in spelling books dictionaries and other works

    split Over an over Old Norse phrases were written as one Walam Olum word Yet Walam Olum words having comparable Algonquin words were divided making their recognition more difficult to a later Algonquin reader The meanings of some words must have changed during the generations of memory recitation Some syllables of the original words slipped away Some of the ancient words appear to have been memorized with unknown syllables retained The original Old Norse words contain the unknown syllables which were not used in Algonquin speech of the 1800s The Historian gave the meaning based on similar concurrent words in his 1800s language A few of the words may have been explained incorrectly But the Editor who did not speak the Algonquin language may have messed with the original English translation to make the history conform more to his the Editor s viewpoint The Editor had learned of the Turtle myths of several tribes He impressed the turtle name unto a word meaning deserted or solitude In two verses the Editor apparently changed the Algonquin word west to east so the Walam Olum matched the Editor s very strong belief that the Algonquins migrated from the west to the east Directions cited in a subsequent verse indicate that the Walam Olum people left the North East and South to travel to the West A major Editorial substitution was for the word Akomen The Editor apparently chose to compare Ako with the askook word used by Algonquins to describe snakes The Old Norse word skakk means slanted compare to modern English askew The Algonquins speaking Old Norse often named animals for their behavior Snakes traveled askew So snakes were named called askook The Editor used the askook association to write in English Snake land for the Akomen word But in the

    sources of Lenape words Brinton 1885 Some of the Lenape accept the Walam Olum Other Delaware tribes are adamant that the Walam Olum is a white man s hoax Oestreicher 1994 The Walam Olum has six chapters The first chapter is a creation story The second chapter is a story of a flood The third chapter is a story of migration across ice The fourth and fifth chapters are genealogies of the leading chiefs with an occasional mention of a place or event Many people including those claiming the Walam Olum is a hoax assume the fourth and fifth chapters represent a serial progression of chiefs But chapters four and five start at similar times and progress through similar major events in the same order So people in two different tribes of Lenape may have composed separate pictograms and verses for chapters four and five The pictographs for the sixth chapter were retained by other Lenape historians The sixth chapter chronicals the events of the Lenape from the time of the European arrival until they went through the chaos time in Indiana about 1820 A few writers who have studied the sixth chapter have the opinion that the recorded events are authentic Critics wrote that any school boy who had history books available could have created the sixth chapter of the Walam Olum Still the pictographs and associated verses are difficult to create from imagination alone One thing is impressive Based on the pictographs and their accompanying verses the creator of chapter 3 knew about events in Greenland from 1000 to 1348 In chapter 3 verses 1 6 describe the houses of Greenland and the division of the men into either homebuilders or hunters Verses 7 10 describe the flight of the Greenland Odin followers from the imposed Christian religion
