Native Americans and US presidents: The mystery lives on
This is not the only mysterious connection between Native Americans and American presidents that had many Franco-masons among them. Many mentioned not only the similarity between the Native American and Masonic rituals, but also the presence of Masonic symbolism and Masonic legend in Native American culture
On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, during a performance, actor John Wilkes Booth entered the presidential box and shot Abraham Lincoln in the head. The next morning, the 16th U.S. president died. He was not the first and, alas, not the last president who died as a result of the so-called "presidential curse." What other mystical bonds linked the presidents with the Indian chiefs? The first in the series of "cursed presidents" was William Henry Harrison, who died exactly a month after his inauguration.
The ninth president of the United States (March 4 to April 4, 1841) was the first in many respects. The 68-year-old Harrison became the first oldest president of the country. Only 140 years later, this position will be taken by an even more elderly Ronald Reagan. The death of William Henry Harrison from cold - the first U.S. president who died during his office - is mystically connected with the Presidential Curse.
Another name used is the Curse of Tippecanoe The then governor of Indiana Territory Harrison became famous as a national hero by defeating the Indians in 1811 at the battle of Tippecanoe that earned him the nickname Old Tippecanoe.
As the head of his opponents was the leader of the Shawnee tribe, Tecumseh, the curse was given his name - Tecumseh's Curse. During the Battle of Tippecanoe his brother Shaman Tenskwatawa was killed. The other names used to indicate the "presidential epidemic" include Zero-Year Curse, the Twenty-Year Curse, or the Twenty-Year Presidential Jinx - are directly related to the content of the message sent by Tecumseh Harrison.
It said that Harrison will not complete his rule and before his death he will remember the strong shaman Tenskwatawa. "And after him, every Great Chief chosen every 20 years will die. Every time the leader is dead, let everyone remember the death of our people."
According to another theory,
In 1813 Tekumze fell from the hand of the future U.S. vice-president, Colonel Richard Johnson. His tribe was doomed to slow extinction at the reservation.
And then the supreme shaman turned to magical powers. The curse was effective until 1963, when President John F. Kennedy, elected in 1960, was shot in Dallas. However, the U.S.
presidents Ronald Reagan and Bush Sr. have managed to avoid such a fate. If the attempt on Bush in Tbilisi was merely an attempt, Reagan was wounded seriously.
A bullet reached his lungs, and such injury at the time could have ended in death. American presidents did not die while ruling any more, which led to the conclusion that the curse of the Indian chief or a shaman is no longer in effect. This is not the only mysterious connection between Native Americans and American presidents that had many Franco-masons among them. In oral tales, many of which are not trusted by modern scholars, it was said that when some Freemason got into serious trouble, at the last moment they were saved by an Indian chief, noting the gesture of Masons. There are stories of the dedication of an Indian chief in the "masons." During the ceremony he acted as if he were familiar or at least present at such a ritual before. After the end of the ceremony the chief offered to make GM a shaman, which was considered the highest honor.
Many ethnographers argue that for the North American Indians shaman's position is not hereditary, but elective, and may be taken by any outstanding person. Surprisingly, many mentioned not only the similarity between the Native American and Masonic rituals, but also the presence of Masonic symbolism and Masonic legend in Native American culture. Some historians are inclined to think this similarity is not accidental. The arrival to the pre-Columbian America of Templars or the Rosicrucians is mentioned as a theory.
In 1832 at Yale University a secret student society Skull & Bones was established. It is interesting if only because it included three generations of the Bush family, the latter two of which were in different years the presidents of the United States. The first was Prescott Bush, U.S. Senator from Connecticut, the father of the 41st U.S.
President George HW Bush and grandfather of the 43rd U.S. President George W. Bush. Could the membership in this secret society in some way affect the fate of George W. Bush and protect him from the Indian curse? Such popular American publications as "Time" or "Newsweek" from time to time mention this society, existing solely for its own purposes.
Its specific purpose is to promote its adherents to influential and key positions in the country. According to a legend, the corporation "Skull and Bones" was founded by William Huntington Russell (1809-1885) and Alfonso Taft (1810-1891) in conjunction with 12 or 13 other students at Yale University. Upon his return from Berlin after graduating, Russell found that the national student society Phi Beta Kappa as a result of anti-Masonic campaign lost its secret status.
In 1832 it was decided to establish a U.S. branch of the German secret society. It is assumed that originally the society was called The Order of Death or Lodge 322. There is evidence that there were other names. According to some reports, the society was funded by Russell's cousin, probably with the money received from opium smuggling.
