    Grin Sieg Heil, Cherokee Style

    : Does anybody know the story behind these funny statues?
    Was the fascist salute taken from the Native Americans?

    He who knows, and knows that he knows, is wise - follow him.

    Probably just a coincidence. Humans have existed for so long it wouldnt be strange if it has been invented twice.(it does look pretty awesome)

    Recap on your history, mate! eyes:

    This salute was a salute used among the Romans, especially to greet leaders of armies and leaders of countries.

    As well, it is used in most Indo-European religions to hail the sun. Or at least was those days.
    It may not have been much different with Native Americans, maybe the salute is even as old as mankind. I believe they would be using it to greet the sun as well.

    Greeting the leader will have been the main reason for its use in Reich #3.

    It was NOT invented by NS.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Ah I get it, It was incorporated for the revival of the solar religion.

    But it still looks funny, especially in PC America.

    BTW I thought the roman salute was more bent at the elbow?

    I thought the Roman salute was conciderably different than that. I could be wrong though.

    I read that Greeks used to do this great salute during the olympiads as well.

    Well, of course the Roman one was slightly different, but the idea was kind of the same.

    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    This Native American one is eerily the same though. I don't recall ever seeing it in portraits, photographs, or movies, just statues. :

    Some information on Native American sign language would help.
    I wonder if it might be related to those "how many legs the horse of a mounted statue has touching the ground" myths...

    Yes, the Romans got it from the Greeks.
