Author Biography

Known as the1492guy, Dave Patterson always leaves his audiences inspired to take action about the "Myths of 1492." Through extensive research he has compiled and organized the real truths of 1492 in a way that is unforgettable to his readers. Dave takes you on a fascinating journey delivered with passion - the same type of conviction that caught his attention in 1999 after first hearing Ray Fadden's message. Dave was driving his car listening to the radio and it was during that moment listening to Ray when something changed in Dave. Since then, his attitude has never been the same. Dave Patterson is convinced if an immediate transformation could happen to him, it could happen to others. He loves and cares for his subject, as well as the people he writes for; that's why his communication is clear, fun, and practical. Get ready to go back in time and gain new perspectives on today's civilization. The experience will have you looking at the amazing pre-Columbian narratives from a positive point of view, as Dave fills in critical knowledge gaps left by our mainstream education. Without going back to a point of origin and correcting many misconceptions, the problem solving and complaint processes of today may be doomed to keep repeating the same errors and flawed solutions. The extra ingredient of de-coding which Dave adds is understanding we as Westerners typically react with guilt and pity. But to this date those feelings haven't worked in bringing about useful change in our societies. Are you prepared to go beyond guilt and pity? When you are ready for a deeper understanding, learn why our approaches haven't worked. Realize exciting new truths awaiting you in the1492guy, Dave Patterson's book, "500 Years of Lies: Discover the Extraordinary Number of Native Indian Gifts to the World."
