Dialogue from Ghostbusters (1984):
Gozer: Are you a god?
Gozer: Then… die! [Lightning flies from her fingers, driving the Ghostbusters to the edge of the roof and almost off]
Winston: Ray, when someone asks you if you’re a god, you say “YES!”
French explorer Jean Nicolet (1598-1642) was the first European to see Wisconsin. Nicolet and seven companions traveled from Quebec, stopping at the shores of what is now Green Bay. Nicolet expected to encounter Asian peoples. He donned a Chinese damask robe to greet them but met, instead, a small group of Menomonee Indians. Believing that Nicolet was a son of the gods, the Menomonee celebrated with a great feast in his honor. (Information from the Wisconsin Historical Society)
What an impression this made on Native Americans. In paintings of this encounter, Nicolet appears to be blazing away with his pistols. How like the next 200 years that was.
