Ojibwe Chief Con-nos-semitig (aka Robert TallTree) and his 83-year-old young mother Akwa-gish-nuquay visited the Aadheenam today. The Ojibwe (Chippewa) Indians originally hailed from the Great Lakes area around Lake Superior and are are split across USA and Canada. They are the fourth largest First Indian nation in the US with over 56,000 members. Another 77,000 live in Canada. The priests of their Ojibwe, initiated medicine men of Midewiwin religion of of the Ojibwe, were well respected as the keepers of detailed and complex scrolls of events, history, songs, maps, memories, stories, geometry, and mathematics. Chief Con-nos-semitig and his mother now live near Colorado Springs, Colorado.
When touring Iraivan Temple Con-nos-semitig was very happy to see many symbols carved on the pillars that he grew up with as part of his tradition. The Chipowa are known for their birch bark scrolls that are carved with hieroglyphics. When Sivanathaswami explained about the significance of Lord Kartikeya in Kadavul, Chief Robert excitedly said the Pleiades was also important in his tradition and that his tribal history speaks of arriving here in a shell shaped saucer.
