    Is New York Considered Vinland? "Aus NYC"

    Hello all! I am Gregor in New York City. My heritage is German and Iberian from the NW coast of the Iberian peninsula known as Galizia and Asturias.

    I had no Idea such a large and wonderful forum existed, it is like standing under a cool waterfall after being in the desert. Especially encouraging
    is seeing all the young alert and awake people here from the Germanic lands
    all interested in our positive and healthy culture. I thank the founders and operators of this forum for creating it.

    I see that some people have "Vinland' as their country and I wonder if by Vinland is meant the land called the USA. Does anyone have this answer? I love the Atlantic Ocean near which my ancestors and myself have always lived.And I love nature and the lanscapes of Northern Europe, and all nature in general.

    I am very interested in the roots of Indo-European religions before the advent of "Christianity", or other foreign belief systems entereng into our lands. I understand that many people here consider themselves "Christian" and I will be respectful of individuals always as the rules of the Forum dictate.

    I do Migration Era reenactment as a Saxon Kampfer and travel to Europe for large festivals as well as participate in festivals in the USA. My next project is to make an 8th Century Sachsen concave shield. (Easier said than done, lol).

    Also I make music that has been classified as Industrial and or Volkisch by people.
    I would just say that I compose music and would not put labels on it.

    As far as my Avatar well, Nauthiz happens.

    Welcome aboard Gregor. It looks like your interests will fit in nicely here. It's very interesting to hear that part of your ancestry is Asturian. My wife is partially of Asturian ancestry as well, and that seems to be a rather uncommon thing here in the states. Anyway, enjoy the boards!

    I like the "cool waterfall" analogy - very much my impression when I first joined here (well, The Althing) as well.

    Welcome; see you around.

    Is your Iberian ancestry maternal or paternal?

    Welcome & yes if they haven't already left you a rep to tell you, Vinland is an option some here use for America.

    Happy Posting!

    Germanic Asturias in olden times.

    Thank you. My father is Asturian-Gallician (mostly Asturian actually, and you may be interested to know that the Asturians are the Spanish that have the most Germanic blood of any group in Spain. Goths, Teutons and Cimbri. I will look it up as it has been a long time since I read about it. One thing that is very well known about the Asturians).

    There are tremendous differences between the South Spanish and the North Spanish. The Arabs *never* conquered Asturias nor Galicia. The Bauerhoffen
    in Schwlessig-Holstein with their Thatched roffs are the same as in the Atlantic Coast of Asturias. Very interestingly the Celtic tradition and conciousness also has the White Mare or White Horse. Epona, the Horse Goddess was a Celtic Goddess of the Atlantic. This was the Goddess of the Iceni that Queen Boudicea invoked fighting the Romans in England. The Romans adopted her, not the other way around. And as you may have seen in other posts here, the White Horse is an important Saxon Icon . This is the kind of thing that I research, and it is hard work as there are precious few written acounts, so we have to go by what little is written and most importantly archeology in order to discover these connections.
    (Not that Everything has to be german, lol).

    If anyone wants a laugh see youtube.com = " mundstuhl were german" It's funny.

    What do you mean exactly, I am perplexed, there are a zillion.
    I sent my kids to Rudolf Steiner School for the first few grades, and most of my friends are German expats, Danes, Swedes or American Anglo-saxons. Right now there is an influx of young Danes into Williamsburg Brooklyn. Some of my German friends are heavy into "multiculturalism" but you can't take the bergzieger from the berg. ( mountain goat from the mountain) so when they stop banging the bongoes they are themselves again.
