MXODUS Tours travels from Olmec Cultural Centers to Mayan and shrines in Chiapas
More colmuns by Mother Tynnetta Muhammad
“I, Allah, am the Best Knower, the Seer. These are verses of the Book. And that which is revealed to thee from thy Lord is the Truth, but most people believe not. Allah is He who raised the heavens without any pillars that you can see, and He is established on the Throne of Power, and He made the sun and the moon subservient (to you). Each one runs to an appointed term. He regulates the affair, making clear the messages that you may be certain of the meeting with your Lord.”
–Holy Qur’an, Surah 13, verses 1- 2
As we continued our journey crisscrossing the states of Vera Cruz into Tabasco and finally Chiapas, we were amazed to discover how the images and faces of the Black African presence co-mingled with sculptured images reflecting Oriental as well as Semitic and Asian characteristics. As we entered the mysterious land of the Maya, it has become evident that various migrations of Original peoples and tribes entered this area in the southern sphere of Mexico and Central America producing different types of physical characteristics as well as lending many cultural affinities. To better understand how this came to be we must trace these origins back to the history of the Black man’s presence on our planet from remote times. This knowledge takes us into thousands, millions and even trillions of years of recorded lifetimes.
In our previous article we traced the writing of our scientists who wrote in periods of 25,000-year histories, tracing back to the making of moon, 66 trillion years ago. In this number 6, we come all the way down to the last 6,000 years of history on our planet in the making of the White race and their dispersements throughout the planet to take up the dominant rule and identity among us as the Caucasian people of European origin. This people are often referred to as the people of the Caucasus Mountains or of Eurasian origin located in Central Asia. Traveling through Mexico, we come face to face with the Original man and the birth of other family members akin to Asiatic and Semitic origins. How did this come to be? The Honorable Elijah Muhammad gave to the world a stunning view of a history that has been hidden from the majority of the world peoples and nations until today. This startling history of the making of the White race has been so controversial that it has been converted in the media and in some societies as being racist or “hate teachings.” But let us examine what he taught and see how it fits in with the evolution of knowledge that is represented in the present world order. Even more amazing, we may have stumbled into this reality deep within the jungle regions of the Lacandone Forest area of Mexico in the state of Chiapas. In the archeological zone of the famous Mayan site of Palenque, surrounded by the awesome beauty of natural rain forest, fauna and tropical plants and waterfalls and mammals ranging from crocodiles to jaguars, and distant mountain lions to other types of reptiles, tropical birds and monkeys, lies buried in the exact site of Palenque the world famous tomb of a noble man named Pacal Votan.
In our first tour in August 2006, our group had the opportunity granted by the officials at the museum site to enter the tomb with our famous guide of 42 years of service named Victor. With our guide, we descended the steps of the Temple of the Inscriptions to view this marvelous and breathtaking sarcophagus buried deep within the Temple itself. This fabulous tomb was discovered by Mexican archeologist, Alberto Ruz, in 1952. In the early 1990s, another tomb was discovered to the right of this Temple of the Inscriptions, which also held the skeletal remains and jade jewelry and mask inside of another tomb called the Red Queen. It is still under investigation whether or not the remains are male or female. All of these discoveries raised questions about the link between Meso-America and Egypt in the past. It has only been known historically that the ancient Egyptians buried their Pharaohs or Kings in tombs in elegant sarcophagus as is characterized in this unique crypt discovered in Mexico at the site of Palenque, Chiapas. Using the methodology of a scripted language and code made up of numbers, letters and words, we find relationships between the two separate cultures, the one in Africa and the other in Mexico. I began retracing the sound values and the following is what I discovered: the name of the state is Chiapas; in the conversion of sound value to letters, we get Cheops, the name give by the Greeks to the Great Pyramid in Egypt. The next interesting discovery using the same method, was found in the name of the site, Palenque. Using syllables, we pronounce first Palen and then (que) key. When these sounds are decoded we see to our amazement in the first syllable Pelen, the name of the Island Pelan (Patmos), where Yacob, the father of the White race, performed his experiments in the grafting of the White race. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that Yacob began this process with a small handful of followers of the Original Nation numbering 59,999 with himself included, making 60,000, who were taken to this island for this purpose in the Aegean Sea. As each color or race was produced through a special method of birth control, the color Brown was produced and then Yellow and then White. Out of each color that was produced some fled the island to occupy specifically designated geographical areas where they mixed with the Original people they found already located there. In many interesting sculptures and shrines carved by the early Olmec people in Mexico, they often appear to be giving birth to babies with jaguar or felin features with elongated skulls, which had an amazing similarity to tribal life on the African continent. One of these sculpture reliefs was found in the state of Tabasco at the outdoor archeological park at La Venta. The motif shows a jaguar priest bringing forth a child and there is an umbilical cord that stretches to the side of this altar that connects to a Mayan figure, which tells the story of the Olmecs giving birth to the Mayan civilization. Other similar reliefs found throughout the Olmec regions tell the same story. I close this article with food for thought and a quote from Dr. Toni-Mokjaetji Humber, our extraordinary tour guide in her scholarly book given to all participants on the Olmecs and their African connections.
“The ancient Olmecs formed the premier civilization of the Americas and are referred to as the mother culture by many historians. They were part of a long and influential past that spanned from 1300BCE to 300BCE along the Gulf of Mexico. Many historians disagree whether Africans influenced and were among the Olmec people. In “They Came Before Columbus” (1976) and in “Early America Revisited” (1998), Ivan Van Sertima presents information that supports the thesis that Africans traveled to the Americas and lived among and influenced peoples of the western hemisphere. He identifies 12 bodies of evidence to support his thesis. Alexander Von Wuthenau, Runoko Rashidi and Clyde Winters have presented evidence that clearly shows the Olmecs were not Indians “with baby faces” nor Indians who looked like Africans (although a few Olmecs did mix with the Native Americans). They were Africans who were no different from Africans found in the Mende regions of West Africa. And we can also conclude that the Africans of the Mende region are also linked to the African civilizations of the Nile valley, which includes Egypt. To be continued.
“And He it is who spread the earth, and made in it firm mountains and rivers. And of all fruits He has made in it pairs, two (of every kind). He makes the night cover the day. Surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect. And in the earth are tracts side by side, and gardens of vines, and corn, and palm-trees growing from one root and distinct roots–they are watered with one water; and We make some of them to excel others in fruit. Surely there are signs in this for a people who understand.”
