Leif Ericson was born in Iceland, the son of Eric the Red. He moved with his parents to Greenland in 986. In that same year Bjarni Herjolfson, following his father to Greenland, missed that island and sailed in a south-westerly direction and sighted both the Labrador coast and Newfoundland.
Leif, 15 at the time, listened carefully to tales of Bjarni's adventures, probably from Bjarni himself, who was more interested in trade than in discovering new lands. On reaching his majority, and chafing under the patriarchal rule of his father, Leif determined to visit Bjarni's southernmost land. He undoubtedly was motivated by Bjarni's account of large timber stands sighted along the coast, for timber was scarce in Greenland. Bjarni not only furnished the idea for the voyage but also supplied Leif with the very ship that he had used on his own inadvertent exploration.
Leif's voyage was planned and had a forceful, brave, shrewd leader who was careful in all things. His discovery, then, was not an accident, as those who give too little credence to Viking navigational skills intimate. He set sail probably in 995, passed Markland (Labrador), and reached Newfoundland, where his thirsty crewmen drank dew from the grass. Here, in what probably was Leif's Vinland, the men decided to winter, noticing that the days were more equitable in length than at home.

Tribal chief had the duty of hunting food for the tribe to survive.
Men of the tribe of afraid of dying and run away when faced with danger of hunting food.
Witch doctor has convinced the tribal chief to spare him a young maiden virgin to sacrifice to the Gods.
When the young males see that the young maiden is willing to sacrifice her life to serve their God, then it shames the young male as a coward to show fear.
Females have been bewitched not to mate or sleep with any young male who has run away as a coward from danger.
Male must demonstrate his bravery (i.e. pride) to fight to the death to gain honor and respect of the female members.
Tribal chief will honor the young males as braves that stand in battle.
Witch doctor has promised the brave warriors of eternal life for sacrificing his life in battle.
Moral of my story is: Tribal chief and the tribal witch doctor have always been in cahoots to rule the male members of their tribe by bewitching the female members to lust after the brave warriors.
