I have 2 experiences I want to share that I personally feel tie into each other and that recently I can't get off my mind. The first is a UFO that I feel is linked to the Native drumming and singing. After I tell the story I want to go into some background of the life on the farm because after reading some other stories of the same native drumming and singing I feel there is a lot in common besides the out of the normal experience others and my self have had.
As a kid I spent every summer on my grandparents old farm, which is now called Crane Kettle Farms near Stockton Missouri.
One evening as the sun was getting close to the horizon my grandfather, brother, and my self were sitting on the front porch looking out over the farm when beyond the tree line we watched what looked like a star rise up, stop, and then shoot off like a shooting star. We all looked at each other in disbelief. I'm not sure how old I was. I would say from 10 to 12 years old.
The second experience I had took place after the sighting and not sure how many years after, but I know it was after. It was about the same time as the ufo sighting. My brother, cousin, and I were just getting done putting up the chickens, ducks, and geese when we were walking back to the house and started to very faintly hear native drumming and singing. We could see a good ways around us especially in the direction the sound seemed to be coming from. When the sound got closer and closer and louder and louder very quickly. It was right up on us and yet we saw nothing. It seemed like what you would expect if anybody thought of native singing and drumming. I saw my grandmother come out the house on the front porch and I took off running. When I looked back I saw my brother shaking my cousin which had turned completely white and scared stiff.
I have recently looked up the indian tribes in the area and see that it is or was Osage territory so I looked into their beliefs and try to find out about some of their folk lore and came across some stuff I found interesting.
The Osage believe that the star people came down to guide the people of earth from their bad ways. Which makes me think about the star that rose from the tree line and shot off. It makes me feel like maybe there is some truth to that because I know what I saw.
I also came across a story recently about drummers. I forget the story so I'm going to paraphrase like no other. Basically there came a point when the youth were pretty much becoming sissy horn dogs and making fun of the old ways of hard work being a man of courage and so forth. The young ones would drum when when the older ones would drum and make fun of everything the older ones did. Lol kind of like youth today. What I also read is you had to earn your way into the spirit world or when you die your spirit will roam earth. I recently thought maybe the drumming is the spirits of these younger ones that made fun of the ways of the tribe and didn't earn the way into the spirit world. Just a thought. I now know others in different states have experienced the same thing so I'm not sure I can say it retains to the Osage. But many tribes had very similar stories and beliefs.
About the farm and my time up there.
The farm was really kind of in the middle of nowhere. It was always mostly just me and my brother. No other kids, but sometimes other cousins might hang out for a few days and then we didn't see them until next summer. It was close to about 80 acres with cows and chickens and what not that I mentioned earlier. I spent many days roaming the farm by myself hanging out and even sleeping with the cows. There was one I could lay against and she wouldn't get up until I got up. Playing with frogs and fishing in the pond finding clams or oysters in the creeks, catching crawdads, just running around be a curious a boy trying to entertain himself anyway I could find. I can remember being as young as 8 or 9 doing this all by myself.
My mom use to tell us as the sun sets or at night she could hear the drumming and singing sometimes. I didn't believe her but now I know she was not making it up.
Well that's about it. I would really like to hear from others rather its the same type of experience or just your own opinion or insight.
