Video: Riddle of the Tuareg, OSU Lecture by Bernie Taylor

February 2, 2018

The hero’s journey monomyth is at the core of stories worldwide among indigenous peoples, the ancients, and our modern society, In this video The Riddle of the Tuareg” that is drawn from Bernie Taylor’s book “Before Orion: Finding the Face of the Hero” he explores a deeper root for this mono myth by looking at how hunter-gatherers viewed themselves within the natural and spiritual worlds through Paleolithic cave art from 40,000 years ago.

Author and naturalist Taylor proposes that select cave paintings are fundamental pieces in the human journey to self-realization, the foundation of written language, and a record of biological knowledge that irrevocably impacted some of the artistic styles, religious practices, and stories that are still with us.

Taylor addresses a profound archaeological elephant in the room by opening up an uncharted place in our history, which points to the cultural ancestors of mankind in the Amazigh culture.
