    Hi Laird,

    I look forward to ordering and reading your books. I listened to a program you were on that mentioned that the Dogons early on originated in Early Egypt before splitting off. Does the culture say when they separated?

    Also in South America there are many African features. Is there any mention of ever traveling to South America?

    I can’t wait to read you books to put the peices of the worlds mysteries together.

    Take care.

    Ben – I’m aware of many commonalities of tradition between the Dogon and various cultures of Central and South America, and the possibility of a link is made more likely by the Africanized features of some of the carved Olmec heads. Because the Dogon have no native written language, there are no historical records to consult, and Griaule’s studies make no mention of South America specifically.

    – Laird
