For many years, Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, a Cherokee/Choctaw and Professor Emeritus at Montana State University, has been collecting encounters between Native Americans and “Star People.” Her fascination with Star People stemmed from stories told to her by older relatives, such as her grandmother, when she was a child, according to her book “Encounters With Star People, Untold Stories of American Indians.”
Clarke describes a story told to her by an Alaskan Native named Ross in one of the chapters. Ross worked as a snowplow driver, and one night he was plow-ing a 50-mile stretch of highway during a terrible snowstorm with near-zero visibility. Ross received a call from another driver, Bill, about an hour into his shift, informing him that there was a strange glow up ahead on the highway. Before Ross could respond, he noticed a round disk in the middle of the highway, covering two lanes, with bright orange lights around the bottom. Ross came to a halt about 20 feet away, flipped his lights on and off, and attempted to call Bill, but his radio was dead.
The disk emitted blinding white lights all of a sudden. The craft ascended and then vanished. Ross sat for a moment, speechless at what he had just witnessed. Ross noticed his truck engine was turned off, despite the fact that he had not turned it off. The snowplow’s engine started when he turned the key in the ignition. When he put the truck in gear and started moving forward, he felt a bump near the front right tire of the truck.
Ross came to a halt and was about to go outside to see what had happened to his truck when he noticed a hand reaching upward and pounding on the side window. Then came the appearance of a second hand. “It was the most terrifying thing I’d ever seen. To you, I swear. Ross exclaimed, “Those hands only had four digits!” “A face appeared and stared at me as I turned on the light inside the cab. It abruptly turned and dashed across the road, disappearing in a grove of trees.”
The animal dashed across the road and into the woods. Ross decided not to brave the minus 70-degree weather and assumed that was the end of it. But it wasn’t the case. The creature reappeared ahead of him in the middle of the road. He intuited that the creature was cold and in need of protection. Ross offered him telepathically to come inside the truck, but the alien creature declined. He stood in the middle of the road, accusing Ross of being the cause of the cold.
The creature explained to Ross telepathically that he was outside in the snow when Ross’ truck came across the craft. In their haste to leave, the alien crew left him behind. Ross invited him back inside the snowplow, saying he “could not leave him out in the cold.” The creature reluctantly entered, but not in the way one would normally enter a truck. He just showed up. He was standing in the middle of the road one minute and then inside the cab with Ross the next.
The alien was short and slender. He appeared to be human, but he wasn’t. From a distance, he could have been mistaken for a ten-year-old child. When Ross inquired about how he could simply appear in the cab, the alien explained that anyone from his world could do so. Ross, he said, could do it as well. “All I had to do was learn how to use my brain properly,” the creature explained. “I had no idea what he was talking about.”
Ross was informed by the humanoid alien that his spacecraft had malfunctioned and that they would be landing soon for repairs. Because of the storm, the crew had no idea they were stuck on a highway. The small alien was curious and had ventured outside the craft to conduct some snow testing. When Ross’ snowplow truck arrived, the crew was taken aback and rushed to leave. They took off without him in their confusion. The alien crew was not allowed to make human contact as a rule. They had already violated several rules of their travel. The alien explained that they were a young crew and that if their superiors discovered their mistake, they would most likely lose their rights as explorers.
The alien was enthralled by the snowplow’s operation. He thought it was a rather primitive machine, and remarked that humans rely on oil-based machines far too much. He suggested that they focus their efforts on researching the use of magnetic propulsion for travel. He claimed that the weather on his planet never changed. In his entire life, he had never experienced snow or extreme cold, and he hoped to never do so again.
Ross remarked, “That was the longest night of my life.” Ross and the creature rode along quietly as Ross continued his snowplowing rounds, not knowing what to ask an alien. They turned around and began the journey back once he reached the 50-mile mark. It was snowing heavily, and the roads had another four inches of snow on them. On the way back, the spacecraft appeared in the same spot in the middle of the road as before. The alien vanished without a trace. Ross noticed him in front of the spacecraft in a matter of seconds. In the dim light, the pulsating lights outlined his shape, and Ross detected a brief and simple salute or wave. The craft then vanished.
Two military officers showed up at Ross’ workplace the day after the encounter, asking if anyone had seen strange lights or UFOs the night before. There were no reports, according to his boss. Both Ross and the other driver, Ed, decided it was best to remain silent. They didn’t want to lose their jobs as a result of an investigation by the government.
The ET phenomenon affects every aspect of humanity. It has a significant impact on our human consciousness, as well as our perceptions of ourselves, the cosmos, and the nature of reality. Consider how much will change if we consider not only the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations, but also the technology they use to get here. We Earth humans are born explorers, destined to travel the universe in search of new worlds and other forms of life. Maybe that’s what these extraterrestrials were up to.
The topic of UFOs appears to be receiving a lot of attention in the mainstream media these days. However, ‘powerful interests’ will almost certainly try to steer the narrative. How will we finally be able to realize our full potential? We must examine what is preventing us from progressing. Do our ideas, beliefs, and worldviews stand up to the evidence available? We now have proof of something that has been denied for decades: UFOs exist.
The mainstream media seems to be obsessed with UFOs these days, which is a far cry from the decades-long mockery campaign that preceded it. The New York Times recently published a story about Eric W. Davis, a renowned astrophysicist who worked on the Pentagon’s UFO program, claiming that he gave a classified briefing to a Defense Department Agency about retrievals from “off-world vehicles not made on this Earth” as recently as March.
