Walum Olum Describes Epic Battle To Exterminate the Mound Builders in the Ohio Valley

Walum Olum Describes Epic Battle to Exterminate the Mound Builders in the Ohio Valley

 The Walam Olum is a part of Indiana, Michigan and Ohio history that has long been ignored. Why? It chronicles the Algonquin peoples entering the present states of Indiana, Michigan and Ohio from their original homes in Canada. It tells of the great battles fought with the Alligewi for possession of this land, that would last almost 2,000 years.  The Algonquin legends say that there were giants who were living in the Ohio valley and that they had red hair. : Algonquin Indian Legend of a Red Bearded Race of Giants

"Walam Olum," What does it mean?

Isis Unveiled: A master key to the mysteries of the ancient and modern science and theology by H.P. Blavatsky

"Shem, in the tenth chapter of Genesis is made the father of all the children of Eber, or Elam (Oulam or Eilam), and Ashur (Assur or Assyria). The "nephelim," or fallen men, Gebers, mighty men spoken of in Genesis (v1. 4), come from Oulam, "men of Shem."...

"Elam, another of the sons of Shem, is Oulam and refers to an order or cycle of events. In Ecclesiates iii. 11, it is termed "world." In Exekiel xxxvi. 20 "of old time." In Genesis 111. 22, the word stands as "forever"; and in chapter ix. 4, in the following words: "there were nephelim (giants, fallen men, or Titans) on the earth." The word is synonymous with AEon. In Proverbs viii. 23, it reads: "I was effused from Oulam, from Ras (wisdom). By this sentence, the wise king-kabalist refers to one of the mysteries of the human spirit-- the immortal crown of the man-trinity."

History, Manners and Customs of Indian Nations
Who Once Inhabited Pennsylvania and the Neighboring States by John Heckwelder 1876

      The Lenni Lenape (according to the traditions handed down to them by their ancestors) resided many hundred years ago, in a very distant country in the western part of the American continent. For some reason, which I do not find accounted for, they determined on migrating to the eastward, and accordingly set out together in a body. After a very long journey, and many nights encampments by the way, they at length arrived on the Namaesi Sipu (fish river), where they fell in with the Mengwe (Iroquois), who had likewise emigrated from a distant country, and had struck upon the river somewhat higher up. Their object was the same with that of the Delawares; they were procceding on to the eastward, until they should find a country that pleased them. The spies which the Lenape had sent forward for the purpose of reconnoitring, had long before their arrival discovered that the country east of the Mississippi was inhabited by a very powerful nation, who had many large towns built on the great rivers flowing through their land. These people (as I was told) called themselves Talligeu or Talligewi. Colonel John Gibson however, a gentleman who has a thorough knowledge of the Indians, and speaks several of their languages, is of opinion that they were not called Talligewi, but Alligewi, and it would seem that he is right, from the traces of their name which still remain in the the country, the Allegheny river and mountauns having indubitably been named after them. The Delewares still call the former Alligewi Sipu, the River of the Alligewi. We have adopted, I know not for what reason, its Iroquois name, Ohio, which the French had literally translated into La Belle Riviere, The Beautiful River. A branch of it, however, still retains the ancient name Allegheny.
Many wonderful things are told of this famous people. They are said to have been remarkably tall and stout, and there is a tradition that there were giants among them, people of a much larger size than the tallest of the Lenape.

They settled again on the Yellow River and had much corn on stoneless soil

The Strong-Good-One was Cheif, he fought against the northeners

They are many: let us go together to the east to the sunrise
Cabin man was cheif; the Allegewi possessed the east
Some passed on east; the Allegewi ruler killed some of them
The Talmatan (Huron) friends from the north, come, and all go together
Stirrer was chief Allegewi towns were to strong
Firebuilder was cheif they gave to him many towns
Breaker-In- Pieces was cheif all the Allegewi go south
South of the lakes, the Talamatan friends north of the lakes
