Location of the Mystery Eagle at the "Old" Pilot Mound, Manitoba: Aquila in the Ancient Land Survey of Native America by Astronomy

The hypothetical ancient Native America land survey map that we published in the previous posting had several crossing points for which we had no corresponding ancient rock art, megalithic, petroglyphic or other landmark site.

One of those mystery points was a major potential land survey and multiple Native American Indian trail crossroad -- in southern Manitoba, Canada, as already discussed for the La Reviere location as meeting place of many ancient Indian trails.

That crossing point is shown in the image below by the large yellow circle on an underlying Google Earth Pro map (copyright Google, presented here as fair use -- the text additions and interpretations are of course independently ours, as we not affiliated with Google).

Given that

-- all of our other very general and geographically loose (i.e. may not correspond to modern divisions) previous identifications inter alia of Alberta as Sagittarius, Saskatchewan as Scorpio, Montana as Bo├Âtes, California and Oregon as Virgo, the Southwest as Leo, Texas as Gemini, Mexico as Orion and Taurus, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama as Auriga, Perseus and Pleiades, Florida as Cetus, Georgia as Aries and Pisces, Tennessee as Cassiopeia, Ohio as the Center of Heaven, the Peterborough Glyphs and vast surroundings as Cygnus (a change from Stars Stones and Scholars), Thunder Bay and surroundings, probably including Minnesota, as Hercules, and Cahokia as Ursa Major --

it could only be that
Manitoba by a process of exclusion had to be Aquila, the Eagle.

We thus said to ourselves, that there must be some marker there near that hypothetical land survey point, And so we combed the area via Google Earth Pro -- and, indeed, the missing, splendid EAGLE is exactly what we have found, unexpectedly as it were in the form we found it, as a relief somehow etched into the ground and still reflected by the topography of modern farming, a discovery which led us to issue the Great Google Earth Eagle Mystery Challenge.

The Mystery Eagle is found just North of Pilot Mound, Manitoba, Canada, a town which was relocated from the "Old Mound" found at GPS N49.22472, W98.91239 i.e. 49.224720° (North) and -98.912390° (West). The head of the eagle is located just to the right of the Pilot Mound "old mound" (there is also a second potential head of a bird to its right).

The tailfeathers and talons of the Eagle are virtually right on the Manitoba Highway 3, the Boundary Commission Trail referred to in our previous posting on A First Nations Clue to the Location of the Eagle of The Great Google Earth Eagle Mystery Challenge: The Boundary Commission Trail as the Oldest Highway in the West and the Boundary Between the USA and Canada.

We have our EAGLE.

    Both book volumes contain the following basic book description:
    "Alice Cunningham Fletcher observed in her 1902 publication in the American Anthropologist
    that there is ample evidence that some ancient cultures in Native America, e.g. the Pawnee in Nebraska,
    geographically located their villages according to patterns seen in stars of the heavens.
    See Alice C. Fletcher, Star Cult Among the Pawnee--A Preliminary Report,
    American Anthropologist, 4, 730-736, 1902.
    Ralph N. Buckstaff wrote:
    "These Indians recognized the constellations as we do, also the important stars,
    drawing them according to their magnitude.
    The groups were placed with a great deal of thought and care and show long study.
    ... They were keen observers....
    The Pawnee Indians must have had a knowledge of astronomy comparable to that of the early white men."
    See Ralph N. Buckstaff, Stars and Constellations of a Pawnee Sky Map,
    American Anthropologist, Vol. 29, Nr. 2, April-June 1927, pp. 279-285, 1927.
    In our book, we take these observations one level further
    and show that megalithic sites and petroglyphic rock carving and pictographic rock art in Native America,
    together with mounds and earthworks, were made to represent territorial geographic landmarks
    placed according to the stars of the sky using the ready map of the starry sky
    in the hermetic tradition, "as above, so below".
    That mirror image of the heavens on terrestrial land is the "Sky Earth" of Native America,
    whose "rock stars" are the real stars of the heavens, "immortalized" by rock art petroglyphs, pictographs,
    cave paintings, earthworks and mounds of various kinds (stone, earth, shells) on our Earth.
    These landmarks were placed systematically in North America, Central America (Meso-America) and South America
    and can to a large degree be reconstructed as the Sky Earth of Native America."
