The Original People of North America
Sage: Read what the Urantia Book says about my people
From The Urantia Book:
Part II - The Local Universe; Paper 51 - The Planetary Adams
The race of dominance during the early ages of the inhabited worlds is the
red man, who ordinarily is the first to attain human levels of
development. But while the red man is the senior race of the planets, the
succeeding colored peoples begin to make their appearances very early in
the age of mortal emergence.
The earlier races are somewhat superior to the later. The Life Carriers
impart the full bestowal of the living energies to the initial or red race, and
each succeeding evolutionary manifestation of a distinct group of mortals
represents variation at the expense of the original endowment.
Part III - The History of Urantia; Paper 64 - The Evolutionary Races of Color
The Red Man: These peoples were remarkable specimens of the human
race. They were a most intelligent group and were the first to develop a
tribal civilization and government. They were always monogamous.
About 85 thousand years ago, the comparatively pure remnants of the red
race went en masse across to North America, and shortly thereafter the
Bering land isthmus sank, thus isolating them. No red man ever returned
When the red man crossed over into America, he brought along much of
the teachings and traditions of his early origin. But in a short time after
reaching the Americas, the red men began to lose sight of these
teachings, and there occurred a great decline in intellectual and spiritual
culture. Very soon these people again fell to fighting so fiercely among
themselves that it appeared that these tribal wars would result in the
speedy extinction of this remnant of the comparatively pure red race.
Because of this retrogression the red men seemed doomed when, about
65 thousand years ago, Onamonalonton appeared as their leader and
spiritual deliverer. He brought temporary Peace among the American red
men and revived their worship of the Great Spirit. Onamonalonton lived to
be 96 years of age and maintained his headquarters among the great
redwood trees of California. Many of his later descendants have come
down to modern times among the Blackfoot Indians.
