Leif Eriksson



Personnel: Cubmaster dressed as Leif Eriksson comes out.

Props: American flag

LEIF ERIKSSON: I am Leif Eriksson, son of Eric the Red and a mighty Viking. In 999 A.D. I went to King Olaf of Norway who commissioned me to spread Christianity to Greenland. As I was returning, my ship as blown off course to the land you call America. It was a land of which I had previously had no knowledge. I called it Vinland because of the wild grapes I found growing there. I also found wild wheat and 'mosur' wood. I spent the winter there with my crew of 35 men. Then we loaded our shop with wood and sailed back to Greenland. So you can see that your land was not first discovered by Columbus but by brave Vikings. In fact, I was not the first Viking to discover America. Fourteen years before my voyage Bharni Herjolfsson was also blown off course and reached America. He did not explore it though. So, you see, your heritage also includes the Vikings. Join with me now in pledging allegiance to the flag which now flies over this great land.
