The Diamond's Ace: Scotland and the Native Americans

During 1999 a major story in the news was the 'Orkney Homecoming'. The Orkney Homecoming was a celebration in Scotland which attracted a large number of visitors from all over the world, with a powerful contingent from the First Nations of northern Canada, claiming descent from Hudson Bay Company employees recruited in the Orkneys. Unfamiliar faces, but with incongruously familiar last names. A new bond of friendship between two very different peoples has clearly been forged. This event is merely the latest manifestation of a more ancient bond between two kindred peoples - the Scots and the Native Americans - linked forever by parallel histories (in which a bitter legacy of massacres, subjugation, forced removals and enforced acculteration have all had their part), an affinity of spirits, and a unique coincidence of destinies. This book seeks out to catalogue the many links which exist between the Scots and the Native Americans, placing special emphasis upon those interactions which have taken place on Scottish soil, and on those Native Americans who, swimming against the tide of mass emigrations in the opposite direction, have in the course of several centuries made their way to Scotland, for different reasons.… (mais)

This text advances the thesis that there is an ancient bond between two kindred peoples - the Scottish and the Native Americans. It considers a wealth of documented cases of contact between these seemingly disparate and unrelated societies, presenting them as instances of a unique coincidence of destinies. Extraordinary stories, such as that of the Lakota encampment in the east end of Glasgow, or of buffaloes on the banks of the Tay are revealed as strangely solid, corroborated to some degree by external sources. In writing this, the author seeks to echo the spiritual traditions of the Native Americans: that there is an essential unity in all of creation.
