1917 tale recounts ancient 'Skyman' legend

Colonel G.E. Laidlaw recorded an intriguing tale told by the First Nations people of central Ontario.

500 years ago two natives from an Ojibwa village in the region were said to have come across a strange man sitting alone in a field who they described as 'clean and shining bright'. When asked what he was doing the stranger responded by claiming that he had "dropped down from above" and that he didn't belong there.

The Ojibwa invited the man back to their village and there he stayed for a short time, however he appeared mostly restless and would regularly watch the skies on the basis that he expected something to come and take him back. One afternoon something did indeed arrive, a bright star-like object which descended from above and landed nearby. The story ended with the 'Skyman' entering the object and ascending in to the heavens.

Could it be that the Ojibwa were visited by someone from another world or was it just a myth ? The truth behind the story may never be known.

"500 years ago there was a large Ojibwa village about 550 native people living somewhere in our region."

Maybe Time Traveler from the future. Nothing mentioned about a little grey alien. Just a man.

Alternatively, as it's GOD we're talking about, him moving a star to say "hey, look here!" is well within his ability. I really don't understand why people have to look at the Bible and say "nah, that's impossible/unproven, must be this unproven thing instead!" rather then "that's impossible, it didn't happen at all".

I really dig the idea of time travel being a good possiblity for some of these stories.

I've just been reading through this thread, MacG, and there are quite a few similar stories about sky objects, particularly over North America. The one I'm particularly thinking of is the cigar shaped phenomenon of the late 1890's. Such as the Aurora incident of 1897.

Excellent post by . It seems more and more cases of close encounters and UFOs that pre-date the Modern era in Ufology (1947) are surfacing. Towards the end of this YouTube video (23:37) it states that beings were observed in Ilkley Moor, UK during the 19th Century way before the famous "The Ilkley Moor Alien" sighting and controversial photograph.
