I do believe you are correct-I’ve read about (and seen on some NatGeo and History channel shows) archaelogical and DNA evidence supporting that the ancestors of many of those tribes in Central and South America came by sea from their homes in what is now Europe, Africa and Asia right to the southern part of our continent-no land bridge, no climate change imperative-more like curiosity and an incentive to find more people to trade with for more neat stuff. Maybe that is why those Olmec ancestors went there from Africa, or how that coca and primitive tobacco got to Egypt-it was traded for some desirable goods the people from Africa brought over with them.
Similarities in the making of and designs on excavated pottery and textiles that resemble those in far places at the same time period, and trade goods from all over a more widely civilized world than anyone imagined until recently are being found in ruins of settlements and burial sites all the time.
Thank you for your comments.
When I studied anthropology and archaeology 20 years ago, we were taught that there were three basic human bone structures and that they were Caucasian, Asian, and African. We were told that the human specimens found might not be perfect examples of one or the other but they could all fall under the three categories.
And if we aren’t too politically correct, visually, most people do too, with definite mixing all around.
I think there may be some truth to the people here previous to the european last wave (a lot of us) having an Asian bone structure and looks. The Indian / native American often has straight black hair, mid brown skin, almond eyes.
If Asians traveled here and took over a previously European people, it would explain the differences between the looks of native Americans and today’s Asians.
I find it all so fascinating.
