Robert Cavelier De La Salle was both famous and infamous. He was bold, eccentric, brilliant, and a very controversial explorer of the Canadian and North American Wilderness. In 1682 he explored the Mississippi River from Illinois to the Gulf of Mexico, promptly claiming all of that terrain for King Louis XIV and France; and he thus became responsible for the French naming and claiming of the "Louisiana Territory." 

In 1684-1685 he sailed from France with some 200 other French, Normandy French, and French Canadian colonists. His purpose was to establish a French Settlement SUPPOSEDLY NEAR THE GULF COAST MOUTH OF MISSISSIPPI RIVER. Instead, whether by Accident or by his own plan, he landed his soldiers, sailors, and colonists within Spanish Territory at Matagorda Bay in what is now Texas.

Tragic loss of supply ships (and even his personal Sailing Craft, La Belle), diseases, deaths and defections made it necessary to undertake an overland trip from Gulf Coast Matagorda Bay to French Illinois and Canada for critically needed additional recruits, supplies, and munitions. 

After 72-73 days of marching toward Illinois through Southern native American wilderness, he was ambushed and shot to death by his own men.  Where?  Why?  Was his Death Location really unmarked and unremembered?  Was that death place only about 125 miles inland from Brazos and Navasota Rivers Juncture, as modern historians have previously speculated?

Dr. Lee W. Woodard— while living in Heavener, Oklahoma—made a fantastic discovery. The so-called Heavener, Oklahoma Rune Stone was crafted by Gemme Hiens, a German-English linguistic and artistic genius. He had been a companion of La Salle in 1684-1687.  That companion was an accused accessory to the murders of La Salle and of his nephew, Moranget. He remained in the region of the assassination.  

Gemme Hiens ("Jimmy Hiens") made the  NORMANDY FRENCH Runic Riddle and Symbolic Art, a twelve-foot-tall stone monument and historical marker, to memorialize La Salle and six others who were murdered during a horrendous bloodbath during March-May of 1687. 

Hiens used Normandy French Runes because La Salle was known as "an old fashioned Norman," deriving of Norman Vikings who had settled in Rouen Normandy. 

Hiens also uses Runes and other artistic data to tell three separate death locations along nearby Poteau River. A total of seven 1687 Expedition Members were murdered at those three separate Poteau River Sites. Hiens also mapped directions to those three Poteau river death-burial places.  

Dr. Woodard says, "Gemme Hiens would never have dreamed that it would have taken more than 300 years for someone to figure out what his Memorial Monument for La Salle and six other tragic murder victims said!"  

This is a major, scientifically verifiable discovery about La Salle and his Tragic 1686-1687 expeditions into the American wilderness. It also involves the original "Coenis" and "Assoenis," Caddoan related native Americans of Eastern Oklahoma, and is a fascinating story about that discovery.  

This is new and original information.  This is must reading for anyone interested in French Colonial America, La Salle, Native Americans, Rune Writing, and dramatically presented real life-death drama!

 

 

Introduction
Ecrite par l'auteur : Dr. Lee W. Woodard

    La Salle, homme brillant, audacieux et excentrique, célèbre pour ses explorations des déserts canadiens et nord américains, implanta une colonie française à l'intérieur du territoire espagnol de la Baie de Matagorda au Texas. C'est la perte tragique des navires qui devaient l'approvisionner, la mort de certains de ses compagnons et les démissions de certains autres, qui vont le forcer à entreprendre une expédition vers l'Illinois et le Canada pour trouver de nouvelles recrues ainsi que les provisions dont il avait un besoin critique. Après soixante-douze jours de marche à travers le désert indien vers l'Illinois, il fût victime d'une embuscade et fût abattu par ses propres hommes. Où ? Pourquoi ? Existe-t-il des traces ou des vestiges qui marqueraient l'endroit de sa mort ?  

    Le Dr. Lee W. Woodard, qui pendant un temps résida à Heavener dans l'Oklahoma, a fait une découverte fantastique selon laquelle Heavener, la soit-disante pierre runique d'Oklahoma, fût, en fait, gravée par un Anglo-Allemand, linguiste et artiste de génie, qui fût aussi un des compagnons de La Salle entre les années 1684 et 1687. Ce même compagnon, accusé de complicité dans les meurtres de La Salle et de son neuveu, Moranget, demeura dans la région de l'assassinat.  

Gemme Hiens ("Jimmy Hens") grava une énigme composée de symboles runiques et d'emblèmes d'art symbolique sur une pierre de douze pieds de hauts pour la convertir en un momument dédié à La Salle, un repère historique décrivant l'accès à l'endroit où La Salle serait mort, près de la rivière Poteau. Selon le Dr. Woodard, "Gemme Hiens n'aurait jamais pensé qu'il aura fallu plus de 300 ans pour que son momunent soit reconnu comme celui de La Salle ! "  

Cette découverte majeure, scientifiquement vérifiable, ne concerne pas seulement La Salle, mais aussi les Amérindiens de l'Est de l'Oklahoma. Cette découverte est tout à fait originale. Tout ceux qui sont intéressés par l'histoire des colonies françaises en Amérique, La Salle, les Amérindiens ou les écritures runiques ne manqueront pas d'être fascinés par cet ouvrage.
