Indian philosophy denotes the philosophical speculations of all Indian thinkers, ancient or modern, Hindus or non-Hindus, theists or atheists. Even in the ancient writings of the orthodox Hindu philosophers, like the Sarva-darsana-sangraha of Madhavacarya which tries to present in one place the views of all sarva schools of philosophy.
The Indian name for the region was Wingandacoa, and Winginia was king. Grapes and fruit appeared in such abundance, growing to the very borders of the sea, even covering shrubs and trees, that the adventurers were enraptured at the sight and landed upon the island of Wococan, thinking themselves upon the mainland.
This island was not far from Roanoke, where was seated Granganameo, brother of the king.
On a second visit, several days afterwards, his wife and children accompanied him. It is related that the woman who was "very bashful and modest," had a hand of white coral about her forehead and from her ears extended a string of pearls of the "bigness of peas," that hung down below- her waist. Other members of the company were "decked in red copper and such ornaments" as -were then in fashion among the Indians.
Granganameo, "eat and drank very merrily," and traded "leather, coral, and divers kinds of dyes" with his hosts.
He sent daily- supplies of game, fish, fruit and vegetables, and such friendly relations were thus established that Captain Amidas and seven others of the adventurers paid a visit to Granganameo at Roanoke.
Arriving at the town, found to consist of nine houses,-the Indian prince being absent,-his wife received them with great courtesy and kindness. That the reader may realize the real character of the Indian, when treated with friendly consideration and respect, I quote Stith's account of this first reception of the English adventurers in the home of this hospitable family.
When they came into the House, she took off their cloaths and stockings, and washed them, as likewise their feet, in warm water. The first expedition had returned to England in September of the same year, taking with it Manteo and Wanchese, two Indian subjects of Granganameo.
They were welcomed with great acclaim. Elizabeth bestowed her name upon the region and knighted Raleigh. The advantageous accounts given by the adventurers, and the two Indians, caused Sir.
Edward Greenville to head a second expedition. He set out the following April with seven ships and a full supply of risen and necessary equipment. Greenville landed at the island formerly- occupied by the first expedition Wococonbut soon selected a party to explore the mainland, under his personal command.
Here occurred the tragedy, of which mention has been previously made. The Indians had regarded the English as a superior race of beings, even considering them as direct descendants from the gods; and, there being no women with them, they at first thought all of the white race to be masculine.
What a trifling excuse was seized upon by this bully to wreak vengeance upon a defenseless village and trusting people. How out of proportion the offense, if it occurred, was the exaction of the penalty.
Here was first sown the dragon's teeth that changed a confiding King and subjects from open-hearted friendship to secret enmity. Can we he surprised that the native began to lose confidence in this strange white race from across the sea; that they began matching their wits in endeavor to prevent successful colonization; that two years later the colony at Roanoke, having taken possession of the island on which the Indians had given the first expedition such a hospitable reception-should disappear?
When Greenville returned to England he left persons as a colony, and they, deserting Wococan, chose Roanoke as their place of habitation.It is imperative to ask why and how this obscure Canadian academic, who insists that gender and class hierarchies are ordained by nature and validated by science, has suddenly come to be hailed as the West’s most influential public intellectual.
Peterson rails against “softness,” arguing that men have been “pushed too hard to feminize,” like other hyper-masculinist thinkers before.
