1- Tribes


The FineDay story Songbird Astral Adventures was written by David Watkinson, who’s main interest is metaphysics and consciousness research. As a result, the main focus of the story is out of body travel. So the lead character could have been any ethnicity.

David chose to introduce Songbird as a Native American to bring attention to the history and culture of indigenous people. That’s because he believes they have frequently been treated unfairly by more technologically advanced cultures. (His personal reasons to specifically promote the Lenni Lenape are explained below in this video.)

Once the discussion group is ready, the plan is to interview representatives of various tribes about their beliefs and culture. Of course, the first tribe to research is the Lenape:

Here’s why the writer chose to have the lead character be Lenape with the first story about a Lenape issue:
