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

In Day of the Fish Dorey associates the symbols found in the Dogon religion with the symbols found in the cultures of Northern Europe, the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Americas. 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. By using Dogon symbols, Dorey has been able to connect these various ancient cultures to a religion that Dorey believes is very close to the Celtic religion, and which once spanned the Earth. This ancient religion also appears at the 12,000 year old Gobekli Tepe in Turkey and in Australia in the image of the Rainbow Serpent. Dorey believes that it is so ancient that it existed in Africa before humans migrated to other areas of the globe.

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 the goddesses Isis and Hathor.
