What do you all think they were referring to with mentioning "The Ant People" , a form of Insectoid Alien Species? Maybe The Greys? The end of the last world was the global Flood. Before that, The Pleistocene Ice Age, and in-between the ice age and flood. The destruction of Atlantis, and MU. Was it by the deluge of asteroids in the bi-annual meteor showers? The earth falling over and spinning all weird, either a physical or geomagnetic pole shift or both.

And I think a magnetic pole shift could have taken place because there seems to be evidence of that type of event in science.
I have always just understood the Ant People to refer to people who live underground, but that raises the question of who could have already been living underground and why?
If these myths have any basis in fact then the history of civilisation sure is an interesting one. However, I also wonder if this could be a North American history. That area has seen some huge disasters in relatively recent times, such as glacial lakes bursting and enormous floods. But, to me, the description of moving east from island to island until they reach the backbone of the earth sounds like a trip across the Pacific and reaching the Rockies/Andies.
This wikipedia page states the last magnetic pole reversal was 780 000 years ago, by the way:

It doesn't mean they are humans. Natives believe that all creatures on earth are equal. Humans are not above the animals so when they must kill an animal to eat, they apologize to it for killing it and raise it's head on a pike to help it's soul travel to the after life. They respect all living things so, saying ant people doesn't necessarily mean they are talking about other humanoid creatures that look like ants. It's more likely they just mean "ants".
