Just like the Jews in Israel, it's time for the Native Americans in Kentucky to coalesce around the idea to take back the land that Daniel Boone and his white friends stole from them in one of the most brutal and murderous and savage and barbaric genocides in the history of human beings, and here in Winchester, or at least just outside of it, at Eskippakithiki, or Indian Old Fields, or Little Pict Town, or Kentucky (that's right... the very name of Kentucky comes from this little Shawnee Indian wonderland, that you palefaces burned to the ground!), and since it's the birthplace of the name of this state, and since the Shawnee's claim to this land, since they were here 12,000 years, compared to the white's claim of only 500 years, it's time for Kentucky Indians to man up, and warrior up, and to start collectin some scalps! Justice will be served!

It's on Old Kentucky 15 and where Kiddville road cross, that's Old Indian Fields, which is what the wytes called the land after the "cleared" it of pesky brown civilizations... there's an Arrowhead Lane there, and should be a marker, or a public park, since it is the birthplace of the name of Kentucky... but since wytes have been covering up their crimes against darker skinned colored peoples for years, it's probably going to keep on happening. I hope that Interstate thingy isn't going to land right on top of Kiddville/ Old KY 15... that would be bullpucky.

Eskippakithiki was a 3,500-acre settlement located about 13 miles southeast of Downtown Winchester. The area lies between Lulbegrud Creek and Upper Howard's Creek. It is crossed from west to east by the Mountain Parkway and Ironworks Rd and from north to south by Kiddville Rd and Trapp-Goff's Corner Rd. But the first occurrence of any new settlers wasn’t until early pioneers arrived in this area in search of land. In the summer of 1775, a party of men came from Virginia, and explored the country north of the Kentucky River (Southeast of Winchester) and marked off claims for 5,800 acres of land between Upper Howard's Creek and Lulbegrud. The group included Marquis Calmes Jr. and Sr., Cuthbert Combs, Benjamin Combs and Benjamin Berry.

Eskippakithiki and Lower Shawnee Town are the last Indian settlements in Kentucky. Big Bone Lick. And Jackson's Purchase, there's plenty of arrowheads, and burial mounds, where the souls of the Americans cry out to be discovered, and learned from. Those who do not learn the past are doomed to repeat it.

All roads... All roads led to Eskippakithiki; one came south from Shanoah, the Shawnee town opposite the mouth of the Scioto, and went on to Georgia; an­other went to Big Bone Lick, forking there to Louisville and Shanoah; one led to Big Sandy and Ohio. This commercial capital was the meeting place of the Northern and Southern Indians, and the rendezvous of traders and purchasers.

And unlike 2 outta 5 Kentuckians, who are illiterate, the Lulbegrud Creek was named after a name in Gulliver's Travels, which was being read by Daniel Boone, and John Findley (which oddly show up after all the cabins have been burned to the ground... do Indians usually burn their own homes when they move elsewhere ? Seems like an odd way to peace out... just sayin')...

What do you know about US history ? I bet yo US teacha neva taught u this... if they didn't teach u this, what else didn't they teach u ? Did they teach u about the Weather Underground ?

"Among the early settlers about Indian Fields were the Goff, Combs, Hisle, Wadkins, Landrum, Humstead and Calmes families. The descendants of the Goffs and Hisles still own some of the lands of the Indian Old Fields. General Marquis Calmes, a Revolu­tionary hero, made a patent at Indian Fields for three thousand acres, including Oil Springs. While making a survey of his patent he met an Indian in the woods, both were frightened and fled in opposite directions. It is said that this was the last Indian seen at Indian Old Fields.

The first house built by white men at Indian Old Fields was a block house, ereoted at Jennings' Spring on the farm recently owned by A. B. Hampton. The names of those who built it are now unknown, but tradition says that they were soon captured and beheaded by the Indians.

In 1775, Marquis Calmes raised a crop of corn on the site of the old Indian town."

Actually the Shawnee left Kentucky.There forefathers killed a white race of people in this state many years ago.They were afraid the spirits of these people would cause the Shawnee to have bad luck if they remained here.At the time Daniel Boone showed there were no Indian settlements in Kentucky.Kentucky was used only as a hunting ground.The Shawnee and the Cherokee and many other tribes hunted here.The tribes that were hostile to each other didn't fight one another here.This land was for hunting only.Evan war parties that travelled through here did not bother each other or bother a hunting party from another tribe

Much of what he has stated is true. I was born and raised on Oil Springs Rd. In fact my mother and my grandmother were raised there. I'm not sure that all the settlers he has listed are correct. I do know that Goff and Hisle were in the area very early. The Salley family was in the area shortly after the Goffs and Hisles. Never heard the other names before. I also know that A.B. Hampton lived on Kidville road for sometime and I knew the house as part of it stood when I was a child.

You can research this at the library or the court house. If I am correct there are none of the original people still left. The Shoemakers and the Eastons were in that area very early as well.

The Goff's name is still a very popular name in Winchester as it has been for decades.
This may be a little off topic but the old Winchester High School's sports program and known name was The Shawnees.
The Clark County public library now stands where the high school once stood before becoming Belmont Jr. High.
The cornerstone block still remains on that property and it is very interesting to observe the dates cut into that stones faceside.

R u serious ? You think WHITE people were the ones building the mounds, and other native American artifacts ? That's foolish. That's how brainwashed Kentuckians are. 2 outta 5 can't even read, and lots of apologetic historians pretend like all of the Indians left, and would only visit Kantuk to hunt, like during the afternoons, and then leisurely stroll back into the woods... so this means that white people were just stealing land that nobody was living on... in spite of the millions of dead Indian carcass's that were staining Boone's raccoon hat, and legacy. So first, all of the Indians left, but it didn't even matter, because all of their civilization's accomplishments weren't by the Indians, it was by WHITE people, who I guess happen to have got to the New World before Columbus ? Please...

White people did not build the Indian burial mounds. The Indians did that. And the town of Eskippakithiki was burned down the ground, by white man's hands. Probably something to do with John Finley.

The white man wiped out the Indians, and justice still needs to happen. What was okay for the paleface yesterday is good for them today. Time to reap what you sowed white people!

There's not much on this, I would suspect your local libraries should have some information, or historical archives, or microfilm, or newspapers, or books... shouldn't they ? I mean your town is sitting on the bones of the souls of Indians. Shouldn't you know something about the Holocaust you benefit from today ?

How is the white man gonna declare war on terrorism when he's been the world's main terrorizer since 1492 ? The white man killed the Kentucky Indians, and pretend like he didn't. White man lynced black folks, and pretends like he didn't. White man killing more folks today, in Africa, Middle East... it's not stop. Every where the white man goes, he murders, and kills, and maims, and destroys, and these sick bastards get a hardon to the havoc they have wrought... some of the topix trash from above shows how proud ignorant backward stupid racist rednecks are, he says he "whooped" Indians... genocide isn't a fight. Genocide is a war crime, and justice says those who genocide, should be genocided.

White man is a barbaric terrorist, and that's why none of these topix trash folks have said anything about their Native American roots, because they want to sweep it all under the rug. Your parents have been lying to you kids. White is not right. White means you're a murderer, and you support the murders of Eskippakithiki. I bet you don't even know how to pronounce Eskippakithiki, do ya ?
