The so-called “Native Indians” of North America and Canada.
If you’ve ever wondered why many of the states in the US contain Native Indian names (Utah, Ohio, Dakota, Kansas,etc.) this is because the original inhabitants of these states were the children of Gad. Why is it that the Native Americans, therefore, don’t own America? Jacob informed his son Gad that a troop shall overcome him; the troop being the U.S. Calvary (Psa. 50:20-21). Many atrocities have been committed against Gad, similar to that of the Native Indians of Central and South America. Israelite customs such as booths (Lev. 23:42), smoke signals (Jdg. 20:38-40), and fringes (Num. 15:38-39) are preserved in Native American culture. The Bible even describes the physical facial features of Gad, stating that their “faces were like the faces of lions” (1 Chron. 12:8). Deut. 33:20 makes mention of how Gad would tear “the arm with the crown of the head”, displaying custom of how the Native Americans would sign blood pacts using a feather from their crown, to tear a cut in their arm.
“Gad: he dwelleth as a lion, and teareth the arm with the crown of the head.”
“Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.” (Gen. 49:19)
