Up Science Is Catching
These knowledge systems, developed over countless generations, are based on individual and collectively learned experiences and explanations of the world, verified by elders, and conveyed and guided experiential learning, and by oral traditions and other means of record keeping.
Traditional Knowledge has today become a highly valued source of information for archaeologists, ecologists, biologists, ethnobotanists, climatologists, and others. This information ranges from medicinal properties of plants and insights into the value of biological diversity to caribou migration patterns and the effects of intentional burning of the landscape to manage particular resources. For example, some climatology studies have incorporated Qaujimajatuqangit Inuit traditional knowledge to explain changes in sea ice conditions observed over many generations.
Despite the wide acknowledgement of their demonstrated value, many scientists continue to have had an uneasy alliance with TK and Indigenous oral histories. On the one hand, TK and other types of local knowledge are valued when they support or supplements archaeological, or other scientific evidence. Are Indigenous and Western systems of knowledge categorically antithetical?
Or do they offer multiple points of entry into knowledge of the world, past and present? In many cases, science and history are catching up with what Indigenous peoples have long known. In the past two decades, archaeologists and environmental scientists working in coastal British Columbia have come to recognize evidence of mariculture—the intentional management of marine resources—that pre-dates European settlement.
To the Kwakwaka'wakw, these were known as loxiwey , according to Clan Chief Adam Dick Kwaxsistalla who has shared this term and his knowledge of the practice with researchers.
As marine ecologist Amy Groesbeck and colleagues have demonstrated , these structures increase shellfish productivity and resource security significantly. This resource management strategy reflects a sophisticated body of ecological understanding and practice that predates modern management systems by millennia.
These published research studies now prove that Indigenous communities knew about mariculture for generations, but Western scientists never asked them about it before. Once tangible remains were detected, it was clear that mariculture management was in use for thousands of years. A move is underway by various Indigenous communities in the region to restore and recreate clam gardens and put them back into use.
A second example demonstrates how Indigenous oral histories correct inaccurate or incomplete historical accounts. There are significant differences between Lakota and Cheyenne accounts of what transpired at the Battle of Greasy Grass Little Big Horn in , and the historical accounts that appeared soon after the battle by white commentators. The Lakota and Cheyenne can be considered more objective than white accounts of the battle that are tainted by Eurocentric bias.
In , a fire at the battleground revealed military artifacts and human remains that prompted archaeological excavations. What this work revealed was a new, more accurate history of the battle that validated many elements of the Native American oral histories and accompanying pictographs and drawings of the events. However, without the archaeological evidence, many historians gave limited credence to the accounts obtained from the participating Native American warriors.
These examples, along with the firehawks study, demonstrate the reliability of Indigenous knowledge. As ways of knowing, Western and Indigenous Knowledge share several important and fundamental attributes. Both are constantly verified through repetition and verification, inference and prediction, empirical observations, and recognition of pattern events.

I am an avid reader, that said I love the books he writes, the concept anyways. However, I find them incredibly repetitive, and I want to yell at the book 'yes, I believe what you are trying to get across, stop selling it to me!
If you are interested in theories of where we came from get these books. I believe in God but not the Christian God because Christianity is not at all old and is so ridiculous Open your eyes, don't be scared!
You won't be punished for seeking knowledge! I grew up baptist so I know the bible but as I've grown older I research everything before buying it from dog food to lotion, so for my soul Shouldn't need faith if it's real. It's cool if your Christian, awesome in fact, just not for me. And make sure you learn where Christianity came from I have ALL the Sitchin books.
The print is small, and the print quality varies from page to page. Order the bound books. If you are prepared to accept that everything you have been told to believe MAY NOT be the whole truth, and that the answers to the questions about creation as explained by Sitchin actually do make ALOT of sense in light of what we now know about our ancient ancestors We haven't even begun to grasp the potential of our own divine creation, and his books will open your "eye" to the present current change in the human dynamic and the shift in our cosmic consciousness.
This has been going on all around us for decades, and once you're aware of it, you'll never see things the same again. I can't read these fast enough!! We have so much catching up to do! I would recommend this book those that are open minded and that are ok with taking the time to look at things in different ways. I am not one to believe any little thing but Mr. Sitchin makes a very valid argument and he backs everything up with physical evidence this is want I like the most I but him.
Sitchin shows how the bible and the ancient text work together to explain our origins. We must remember that to the ancients this was their reality. Just because some archeologist decided that this was to crazy to be true or that it could not be true because we, in modern times, have not witness it, does not mean that its did not happen, specially when more then one culture is talking about the same thing.

Zecharia Sitchin's books are all very readable and well-written and he refers to sources that can easily be checked. Since his death in , more and more facts are uncovered that Sitchin has explained - water on the moon, water on Mars, strange images in Mars photographs especially on one of its two moons Phobos.
Here on Earth we have to come to some understanding of why the oldest stone structures were built with massive stonework that we would have difficulty moving with the biggest cranes we have today.
We cannot pretend any longer that our ancestors built these massive structures with copper chisels and stone hammers. Sitchin has the answers, and it seems nobody else has.
Every book in the Earth Chronicles series is a delight to read. You may not agree with all of Sitchin's theories regarding Nibiru and the Anunnaki, but his chronology of ancient history and global events is spot-on, and his understanding of Sumerian mythology and language is impeccable.
Regardless of the personal conclusions you arrive at after reading his work, I can certainly guarantee that you will also come away with a much greater sense of possibility for our ancient past, and the realization that there is much, much more to our history than we've ever been led to believe. In my opinion, it is the great work of researchers like Zecharia Sitchin and others that will ultimately bridge the gap between evolution and creationism, and finally reveal to us the long-hidden truths about our celestial origins.
One person found this helpful. Enjoyed and gained an understanding of the direct connection of Sumerian history to what is occurring now in our exploration of space. It would seem irrational to ignore the parallels and not see the connection. I would recommend this book to those with an open mind who know there's more to the story. But, for the sake of eternity, trust the Bible. The creator God created even these and will return some day.
