Day of the Fish by Shannon Dorey
The Dogon and Shannon Dorey are on Facebook.

In Day of the Fish Dorey's research associates Dogon symbols with the symbols found in the goddess religion of the Celtic cultures of Northern Europe and the United Kingdom. Dorey also compares the Dogon religion with what is known of the religion of the Jomon people of Japan, who were Mesolithic-Neolithic hunters and gatherers in about 14,000 to 300 BCE. She also refers to the Australian Rainbow Serpent as relating to the Nummo, since the Nummo were described by the Dogon as being Rainbow Serpents.

Although the Nummo were self-fertilizing hermaphrodites, they were identified with the sacred feminine. They were symbolized by a cow and the sun, both symbols which appear in ancient Egyptian mythology in association with Isis and Hathor. By using the Dogon religion, Dorey has been able to connect these various ancient cultures to a religion that Dorey believes once spanned the Earth. It is a very old religion that appears at the 12,000 year old Gobekli Tepe in Turkey. Dorey believes that it existed in Africa before humans migrated to other areas of the globe.
