Two Delaware Chiefs with Undressed Hair Painted by Gustavus Hesselius

Examining the paintings of the two Delaware Chieftains provided and discussed here, Lapowinsa looks part Irish and mostly Amerindian and Tishcohan looks to be all or mostly Irish. As for skin tone, these men merely have a tan, and proof that Hesselius worked as a realist can be seen by viewing his monstrous self-portrait further down the page. The fact that these chiefs have uncropped and undressed hair is strange, unless one considers that they were treaty chiefs, not war chiefs and that the hair style depicted is that of young English colonists not yet wearing a wig do to male pattern baldness, which did not much afflict natives. The shoulder-length hair tied at the nape was the English and Dutch style at this time in North America.

The dressed and cropped hair of Eastern Woodland Indians warriors served as a ready-made war trophy, marking these tribes as far more violent than the Western tribes of the long hair beyond the Mississippi.

Why did they adopt this contemporary Euro-American hairstyle?

Was it due to their participation in the peace treaty?

Had they renounced war and devoted themselves to peace?

Was it at the request of the painter or of the patron, Mister Penn?

Was it an attempt to assimilate with the German Quakers and their Gaelic slaves?

In any case, the wearing of cloth rather than skins marks these men as partially assimilated just as their pipe and pouches mark them as still holding to their ancient traditions. Tishcohan looks almost exactly like a coworker of mine from two decades ago named Jimmy Ritz, down to the tan. It is of further interest that the younger Tishcohan shows predominantly Caucasian parentage in his features while the elder chief is obviously at least half native, with darker skin, though light compared to Western Indians.

‘His Own Red Fear’

Flight by Robert E. Howard, a review by James LaFond
Reading from pages 66-67 of A Word from the Outer Dark


These three savage, 16 line verses are about Cain, Adam’s son, who is fleeing the fallout from his brother-slaying crime.  Howard has an unsettling knack for infusing Biblical narrative with his passion for the poetry of vengeance, a passion that transfigures the reader and transcends mere human notions of revenge.

A jackal mocks Cain on his flight, vines trip him up on the trail, shadows haunt him close, stalked by his own footfalls, harried by the sound of his own breath, judged by mountains, indicted by valleys and worried by the bones of dead men—the killer casts the reflection of his sin wherever in the natural world he wanders. Cain, forsaken by men, meets not another soul on his lonely road. Eventually, fleeing the silence of the dead and the wrath of God, Cain comes to a lonely sea, in search of the only refuge left to him and comes face-to-face with a “monstrous thing of gloom” taken shape from the very deep, and it speaks:

The foremost killer of the earth comes not into my land!
Down all the drifting years to come your fate mankind shall tell
That ye roam the world for the rest of time, disowned by earth and Hell!

On reading this poem I am reminded of one of Howard’s earliest letters to a friend in which he wrote enthusiastically about promoting a local teacher’s discussion on Biblical matters. It has been a few years and I am forbidden from quoting these letters, but I believe—though might be mistaken, that he had also recently read Ben-Hur and an essay on that novel. Having read all of Howard’s Solomon Kane stories at least three times, as the Puritan avenger monstrously roamed the earth righting wrongs with terrible prejudice, I cannot but think that there was some link between this poem and that character in the narrative precincts of Robert E. Howard’s mind.

Good Listens

I bet you've been wondering about the sporadic posting over at HQ

James has been on a secret mission inspecting ice age ready bunkers in the North East.  While there he appeared on a serious video podcast, with expensive equipment and professional microphone persons and everything, the NYC Crime Report with Pat Dixon, Ep 139.  All that nice furniture costs money, so it's behind a paywall.

I also wanted to share a few tracks from Citizens Noise Exchange, a pop-folk trio featuring a friend of the LaFondiverse but currently on hiatus.

More good stuff is on the way as James is scheduled to join Myth of the 20th Century and Luke Ford in the coming days.

Wedded bleakness.

James LaFond on E. Michael Jones.

Evola's warrior discipline is at fatal odds with materialist modernity.

Eirik Bloodaxe joins the Barbarian chorus encouraging Clued to embrace the savage life.

Boxing analysis: George Foreman

The suburban Crime Surfer instructs you on The Scout.

Most of us are slaves.  It's good to understand this, and our options relative to the slaves who came before us.

The drug war makes good TV.

USA! USA! USA! -- I have to respond to Sam J.  Sam J., the top rank for the US is absurd, may be farcical, but it is, in fact, correct.  Cultural erasure: how about American "NGOs" working to bring abortion and gay marriage to the last vestiges of Christendom?  By the way, how do you like your tax dollars funding Planned Parenthood, to the tune of millions of dead babies, their body parts trafficked for cosmetic procedures?  How about Madeleine Albright and her half-million dead Iraqi children?  How many dead, white Americans due to the CIA running heroin from Afghanistan, and how many broken lives?

To Jeremy's point, yes, America provides the greatest material advantage, and apparent freedom from government oppression, but you don't have to scratch very far to see the illusion there, do you?  America's greatness comes from its people in spite of its government.  Other places have lower quality people and equal or worse--but less powerful--government.

These are the women you want with you at the apocalypse!

James is reading and annotating Up From Slavery for the Plantation America Project, comparing and contrasting slavery of the descendants of Europe and Africa in North America.

I can't honestly recommend this, but if you'd like to be a character in James' 2018 fiction book, go sigh up here.

Masculine Authority - Crackpot Podcast 30

James and Lynn are back to discuss the desire for conformity and the need to respect masculine authority.

This was taped long before Ricky Vaughn was doxxed last week by Paul Nehlen and Chris Cantwell working with HuffPo.  Ricky operated a twitter account during the election and some claim he was more influential than ABC News.  Ricky was more effective, by himself, 140 characters at a time, than all the tiki torch parades in the world.  Be like Ricky.

The Crackpot Podcast features masculinist and writer James LaFond, and sleep deprived mother slave Lynn Lockhart.

Pre-show notes for posterity:
You wrote disdainfully about YouTubers complaining about the Black Panther movie and it got me thinking about the need for ideological conformity and mainstream validation observed in certain members in the dissident right.

Jordan B. Peterson, a Canadian university professor, has been gaining notoriety for saying things which are quite obvious, though they are forbidden, such as that boys and girls are different. He still draws ire because he doesn't go far enough to please the true believers, while still enjoying a high profile and earning a good living.

James, how can people deal with this desire for validation from the mainstream?

What is the masculine approach to a difference of opinion among men who are seeking truth?

Is it realistic to expect to influence others, to change their thoughts and opinions?

Is it desirable? I personally feel self doubt in this area, do I really have any business speaking publicly about anything?

To me, the central pillar of these topics is truth. If something is true, you should believe it, and you shouldn't care much whether anyone else does or doesn't. Of course, it's vexing when those in power are violently enforcing lies, but that's life as a slave.

‘Silver Bridge in a Broken Sky’

Dreams of Nineveh by Robert E. Howard

Reading from a Word from the Outer Dark, pages 61-63

Dreams of Nineveh is my favorite Robert E. Howard poem, focusing as it does on one of my favorite ancient empires, the Assyrian, which rose twice, once from dust and once from ruin, as a hero empire, led by absolute hero kings who have much in common with Howard’s Kull and Conan, overwrought dynamos at the helms of overextended polities.

I don’t understand poetics, so in my gropings crudely quantify the verses of this panoramic poem:

Five four-line verses in the ABAB rhyming pattern comprise the opening of the poem; verse four follows:

Death fires rise in the desert sky
Where the armies of Sargon reeled;
And though her people still sell and buy,
Nineveh’s doom is still set and sealed.

Prior to this the reader is treated to the scope of civilized life, from the “Red-lipped slaves that the ancients buy,” that herald the high point of a civilization, when those people at its margins are sucked in and devoured, used, savored and discarded, to, “Hawk-eyed tribes on the desert trail,” a sign of human nature, earthly rhythm and the godly cosmos converging to bring the curtain down on another of man’s arrogant strands of hubris named civilizations, those ghastly experiments in converting humans to resources which herald man’s attempt to become God, all of which fail in cycles so timely as to suggest that our planet breathes civilizations according to some orbital design.

The sixth and seven verses are closer to epic, rising in timbre and lowering in gravity, each of seven lines, with the last four lines of the first epic verse standing out:

And starred our throne with silver nails of pride,
Our horses’ hoofs were shod with brazen fears:
We laved our hands in blood and iron tears,
And laughed to hear how shackled kings had died.

Howard builds his panorama of empire extinguished with an apex verse of eight lines, and then finished with a couplet of faded finality.

It is this reader’s sense that the deep sense of gulfs in time, space, consciousness and malevolence which shadow, shroud and veil his many weirdly heroic tales in a sense of the ironic iconic, bluing his protagonists with the chaff of shattered civilizations serving as the yarn-spinners brazier, has managed to impart a greater mythic sense to otherwise myopic tales of gritty daring with a higher purpose, unspoken, but uncluttered, there for the seeking.

Lockhart's Top LaFonds Volume 18

The first three Rocky films as an Hellenic Epic.

Canine problems in Europe and traditional solutions, from Teutonic Fist.  Big Ron is trying to tell me that ancient man didn't lure proto-Fido with kibble, come on!  The Woodsman has hunted many a wild canine.  Dog news round-up from Bentham.  That closes out Dog Week for now, what animal shall we do next?

Take real estate advice from the Baltimore perambulator and crime surfer.

The Alien Anthropologist is still at it, observing the courting habits of suburban Yute and tampering with evidence.

Baltimore City and County crime report.  The rampant murder of unidentifiable aliens has abated under the new commissioner.

Instructions on the use of asps in corporate security.

Baltimore lost one of the good ones.  Everyone will die, but not everyone will be eulogized by James LaFond.

James explores the topic of regression to the mean.

Learning about the warrior spirit with Evola (and podcasts to come).

It's not quite hate mail, but it's not a love letter either, and it's all we got.

Long live ancient boxing!

An interesting comparison of Aztec and English slave laws.

Women in MMA, a sign of the times.

There are a lot of things wrong in this story, but only one can be fixed:  Daughter needs to be out of college.  Community college courses are acceptable if they impart skills, accounting, sewing, lab work, whatever.  She needs to find a line of work that agrees with her and advance her skills in that area.  The rest is paying people to harm your mind and waste your time.  Stop it now.

I feel the same way about Disneyland as Tony's kids do.

Yes, there is a reverse Reformation under way.
