Colonel G.E. Laidlaw recorded an intriguing tale told by the First Nations people of central Ontario.
500 years ago there was a large Ojibwa village about 550 native people living somewhere in our region. One day, a pair of them stumbled upon a stranger sitting on the grass in a field. This figure, a male, was notably “clean and shining bright. ”
These people also believe in Turtle Island.. and here's an exert of their history/beliefs:
According to the oral history, seven great miigis (radiant/iridescent) beings appeared to the peoples in the Waabanakiing (Land of the Dawn, i.e., Eastern Land) to teach them the mide way of life. One of the seven great miigis beings was too spiritually powerful and killed the peoples in the Waabanakiing when they were in its presence.
So I guess this is the first known case of alien genocide too? People believe the most ridiculous of things.

quote " But these weren’t the first accounts of alien spacecraft on record. Legends of god-like beings coming from the heavens exist in many cultures. Throughout North America, there are numerous caves that date back thousands of years. These paintings figures and objects much like the modern imagery of aliens and flying saucers. "
I find this information very true, there is lost of drawings of flying things in age when flying was impossible, yet they drew all that without even knowning what it was... But one thing is for sure " ANY ALIEN VISITOR " would have a mask of some kind, breathing athmospheric mask, i highly doubt they could breathe our bacterias i mean our air...
Last night i watched " battleship " movie again, and even if it is Sci-fi it makes a damn good case about how our contact might look like... We are probing planets much like our earth, we are sending transmission's in to space which is filled with life, primite or evolved, what if someone will pick up those signals... what then?
Like in the movie the scientist who was in charged of that transmission station, said this can't be nothing good if they succeed. But the point was that when those alien figures arrived they had mask on because they couldn't stand the proximity of our sun...
So any " alien visitor " without any sort of mask is nothing but BS to me...Maybe similar planet but not the same composition of athmosphere..
I bet if we went to one of those earthlike planets we would probably breath just fine... but people would get sick pretty fast from unknown bacterias and virus infections..
Fun story, and if true, is pretty good proof of such things.
Everything in the story points at something outside the time and knowledge of the people. A man asking for a place to be cleaned, specifically. If you've just been offered help the last thing you'd want to do is annoy your rescuers with demands. The "Skyman" would not of done it without reason. The rest of the stuff is pretty 'normal' for First Contact, but what I find most interesting about this is the fact he was described as "a man". So, in effect, he looked like a human... Apart from the glowing.
He also knew somebody would arrive in two days. Perhaps he sent out a mayday before he crashed or had a prearranged meet up if he went silent for some time. The fact this was also recorded in 1917, way before the "UFO" was a well known topic...
Regardless, it's an interesting story, shame we'll probably never find out the truth.
In 1790 at Alencon, France, farmers were out working in their fields when a fiery orb streaked through the sky. At first they thought it was a hot air balloon that had caught fire but as it got closer to the earth they could see it was a large metal sphere that slowed somewhat but continued to travel with a rocking motion as it crashed upon a hilltop, violently uprooting soil and plants which then showered back down upon the hillside.
The heat of the vessel caused fire to erupt in the dry grass where it sat. Small trees and nearby vegetation burst into flames. Pails of water were rushed up the hill by the dozens of peasants now in attendance, soon extinguished the flames. Adventuresome residents crowded around the craft, noting it remained warm to the touch into the evening.
What happened next was documented by The Committee of Public Safety in Paris, 100 miles to the northeast. They sent Inspector Liabeuf, an agent of their secret police was sent out to investigate. Many eyewitnesses were interviewed including two mayors from nearby towns, a physician and other local authorities who had turned up to see what had fallen from the sky. Liabeuf’s report was confirmed by all. It is one of the best documentations of a probable visitation of a being from another place or another time.
It stated that: “All of a sudden a kind of door opened and there is the interesting thing, a person like us came out of it, but this person was dressed in a strange way, in clothes adhering completely to the body...” Apparently a hatch had slide open in the lower part of the sphere and the emerging occupant uncertainly surveyed the crowd. He began speaking in an unknown language, gesturing for everyone to move away from him and his craft. As a few people moved away, he then broke free and ran into the woods.
A sense of danger was communicated and everyone else quickly moved back from the vessel which immediately exploded with a muffled silence. A miniature mushroom-cloud formed in it place as debris from the globe hissed into the grass and turned to powder. Searches were organized to search for the weirdly dressed man. He was never found, apparently dissolving as thoroughly as his ship.
Reporting to his superiors, Inspector Liabeuf suggested that the man in the globe may have been “a being from another world” but the commanders in Paris ridiculed the “ludicrous idea”.
Given the monumental probabilities and conditions that have allowed us to evolve to our current form on Earth, I find the idea that an alien being completely humanoid in appearance to be a deal breaker in most of these encounter stories. One might argue that an advanced civilization could surgically alter itself to adapt and blend, but if that were the case, then would they not also want to alter something as simple as their clothing to further blend. Nice story though, that certainly has a lot of parallels in other cultures, such as Greek and Roman mythology.
