In the far reaches of northern Canada, where there is not much sun, there are several Inuit villages that trace their ancestry to one woman. She was born in the 1920’s but her story really began when she was a young girl. She was always very sensitive, and began having visions, mostly about what the world would look like in the far future. Her mother and father said the Creator had given her a great gift.
Her life changed dramatically though in the 1930’s when some white explorers arrived looking for oil. The Captain was a mean man, and the people described him as “having a bad spirit.” He would get drunk often, and yell at everyone.
Unfortunately the explorers also had guns, and one night they went into several of the people’s homes, and took young women to their cabin. The Captain chose the sensitive young girl, and raped her and beat her badly, including her face. For the rest of her life, she could not see well out of her left eye.
The young women were held for several nights, and the men of the village were going to make war, to kill all of the whites for what they had done. But anger burned in the young woman, so much so, that she wanted to be the one to kill this white man, the Captain, who was so mean. She planned it out.
The very night that she planned to plunge a hunting knife into the Captain’s heart, a bright light appeared in the room, and suddenly a woman dressed in white appeared, floating, never touching the ground. The woman spoke to her gently…….telling her to release the anger…….and she also gave her a plan……. to escape.
To be continued.
Note: This is fiction, but from my reading of history, it is not far from the truth.
