Not ancient but as a Mormon (born from the Freemasons) we were taught that we are from Kolob. Interesting Sci-fi fact the writer and director of Battlestar Galactica is a Mormon (humanoid population battling AI and seeking planet Earth for settlement)

I heard that the Native Americans got the idea of Aliens from the Hippies in the 1960’s and 1970’s and the elders humoured them


Absolutely not,
This particular collection of mythologies was collected in the late 19th century and published in 1912 .
Almost all of the collections I sourced in the link were collected by professional enthnologists and linguists, in the 19th century.
Many of the tellers of the stories learned them in precontact days and before christianisation and were only native speakers.


I wasn't referring to your native stories, but the claims made for extra terrestrial visitation, much more recently.
The fact that the story you posted claims that the girls could get back to earth from a star by making a rope of sinew and also that they could live on a star, clearly demonstrates that its just a story.

Ah yes, Joseph Smiths famous story of Abraham, which he personally translated from an Egyptian papyrus before Hieroglyphs could be translated



The Book of Abraham papyri were thought lost in the 1871 Great Chicago Fire. However, in 1966 several fragments of the papyri were found in the archives of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and in the LDS Church archives. They are now referred to as the Joseph Smith Papyri. Upon examination by professional Mormon and non-Mormon Egyptologists, these fragments were found to bear no resemblance to Smith's interpretation, and were identified as common Egyptian funerary texts, dating to about the first century BC.

the only one I can think of now is the ancient Egyptians
probably other Sun-worshipping groups besides them but not able to think of any

The Egyptians didn't believe any of their gods came from the stars.

The Egyptian Gods were all masturbated out by the god Atum while he was sitting on a mountaintop
The reason you are not able to think of any is because you don't know what you're talking about

Author Wayne Herschel (Author of the Hidden Recors) lists a number of ancient star maps on his website, belonging to different cultures from across the world and different time periods. www.thehiddenrecords.com...

There are some hints at the Pleiades constellation that you might find of interest; even though Herschel's theories often lack factual basis or are purely based on speculation.

My favourite part of Waynes nonsense was his rant where he claimed that ATS is a "large psy-ops website" who's mission is to show that he's an idiot.

The Dine or Navajo have a creation myth but didn't exactly come from another star system but rather a Dark World that they emerged from. A small floating island and people and animals where but mists of themselves until they emerged in the new world. No star though, sorry.

If memory serves there was a star in the sky when Jesus was born regarding the Bible. Then there is the Dogon people of Mali connection to the star Sirius and the fact that they somehow knew about a third star the has been proven to exist but that you cannot see with the naked eye. To be honest there are 1000s of references throughout recorded history pertaining to creatures from the stars, the veracity of said legends is however up for debate.

Jesus is a little questionable as its been proven that
1. He wasn't born when the bible says he was
2. He came from Mary, not outer space, his dad (not Joseph, the other one) by definition was an extra terrestrial, but then religious texts are not history books.

The Dogon myth has been completely debunked. They themselves say that the original claim from made for their knowledge came from the anthropologist who reported it

I was not aware the Dogon myth has been debunked, thanks for bringing that to my attention.

As to where Jesus came from, and/or who his father was i imagine that's open to interpretation. The Bible after all being a book written by Man with all his fears and fallibility at play. Possibly worth keeping in mind that sometimes our history books never mind our religious texts have there own agendas rather than the verbatim truth.

The Op did ask for ancient myths.

Stichen, Sumerian tablets?

Zecharia Sitchin, The Sumerians and The Anunnaki


According to the research by Zecharia Sitchin, some of the Sumerian clay tablets, which are over 6000 old, tell the story of the creation of the human species as the result of an experiment by an alien race called the “Anunnaki”.

We, The Divulgers have decided to devote a space to the work of Dr. Zecharia Sitchin, who dedicated his life to studying the Sumerian tablets and stated that some of them tell the story of the creation of the human species from an experiment made by an alien race called the “Anunnaki”, from planet Nibiru.

We, The Divulgers are convinced that Dr. Sitchin’s theories are somehow true. We don’t know if all his statements are right but we do know that some of them raise disturbing questions that still don’t have a scientific answer.

I have not seen anything credible that debunks Sitchin interpretations yet. Yes, I have seen some debunking websites about Sitchin, however what I have read is mostly someone's "opinions".
