Encounters with Star People
Untold Stories of American Indians

by Ardy Sixkiller Clarke

Trade Paperback, 204 Pages

$15.95, ISBN: 1933665726

Genre(s): UFOs


A noted American Indian researcher offers up a collection of intimate narratives of encounters between contemporary American Indians and the Star People. The first person accounts, described as conscious experiences and recalled without the aid of hypnosis, reveal a worldview that unquestionably accepts the reality of the Star People. The stories also reveal cultures that almost universally regard Star People as ancestors, which allows for interactions that take place without fear and helps explain the uniqueness of the encounters and experiences.

The stories are told by people from all walks of life. Some had graduate degrees; others had never attended school. Some were adept at technology; others had never used a cell phone, owned a computer or a television set. A few of the stories are about events that occurred before the 1947 Roswell incident, however, the majority of the events took place between 1990 and 2010. This book significantly contributes to the knowledge about UFOs from a group that until now have mostly remained silent. For readers, it is likely they will never look at the UFO phenomenon in the same way again

What they're saying:

"Probably no one else [other than the author] can lay claim to the particular constellation of contacts, skills, and knowledge that make possible Encounters With Star People. Indian communities tend to be closed to outsiders, but over more than two decades, Clarke’s cross-tribal ties and sympathetic personality led her to a thousand informants willing to relate their sometimes highly strange UFO experiences…Whatever you make of these accounts, you’re likely to enjoy this unusual book…" — Jerome Clark, Fortean Times 

"It is very interesting to see a thorough study of American Indian tales as they relate to the stories of Star People and related phenomenon, but not entirely having to do with the conventional notions of “Native American mythology” associated with legends that may, in truth, only bear some relation to UFOs today (keeping in mind, all the while, that many modern tribes still maintain the view that present day UFO phenomenon actually is a manifestation or, perhaps even a continuation of known visitations that occurred in the ancient past). Whether the mythos surrounding UFOs necessarily plays into a more complex, modern counterpart involving actual visitation by extraterrestrials is anyone’s guess; but the stories Clarke relates in her Encounters With Star People nonetheless inspire a lot of questions about the present day phenomenon. It is a field of study which, if anything, remains rife amidst the Native cultures in modern day America, and certainly points to some pervasive element underlying our legends and folklore that could, at very least, have some strange physical counterpart." — Micah Hanks, Mysterious Universe
