Montana Boy: Bones Show Ancestral Links to Europe
DER SPIEGEL ^ | February 20, 2014 | Rex Dalton

Posted on 02/24/2014 1:46:52 AM PST by Berlin_Freeper

Despite general resistence, representatives of tribes in the US recently gave their blessing for DNA analysis of the remains of a Stone Age child. Research conducted on the boy's genes indicate that Native Americans have European roots.

It must have been a pretty special child, otherwise the two-year old wouldn't have been buried in such a ceremonious manner. The boy was sprinkled with celebratory red dust and given distinctive stone artifacts for his last journey.

The characteristic fluting of the stone weapons serve as archeological evidence that the boy, who died some 12,600 years ago, came from the Clovis culture. It was one of the earliest New World groups, disappearing mysteriously a few centuries after the child's burial in present day Montana. From the summit of a hill towering over the burial site near the Yellowstone River, the boy's Ice Age contemporaries could monitor their hunting grounds for mammoth and bison.

Now a team of scientists led by the Danish geneticist Eske Willerslev has analyzed the boy's origins and discovered that he descends from a Siberian tribe with roots tracing back to Europe. Some of the boy's ancestors are likely even to have lived in present-day Germany.

Their findings go even further: More than 80 percent of all native peoples in the Americas -- from the Alaska's Aleuts to the Maya of Yucatan to the Aymaras along the Andes -- are descended from Montana boy's lineage.

I have difficulty with the fluting. While I know there are differences in culture, there is also sameness. As far as being linked to Europe...that’s likely a duh...What are the choices??

To summarize many dialogues I had in school, some years ago:

Leftist: We stole the land from the Native Americans!
Me: Who did they steal it from?

I just keep my house clean and don’t steal horses.

Our local church has a mission involvement with a Church near Cuba, NM. The members are outcasts group among the Navajo Indians. Very very poor. I have seen videos and what you say about keeping the house clean, is not misplaced. The family who put the church together were Navajos who moved back to help. Wonderful effort. And their church is Spartan, but very clean. A true act of love.

The native americans believed in "conquering" just like the rest of the world at the time. They did it all the time amongst their own....killing off and sucking up other tribes.

They sided with the British during the Revolutionary War.

We were more than decent to them.

Casinos and casinos...What a legacy.

They have done themselves wrong.

My response is, “Well that’s what they get allowing their country to be flooded by illegal immigrants.”

His genes are linked to Europe. The Clovis points show a cultural link to an early and widespread group of native Americans, who used distinctively carved spear points.

In pre-perpetually-offended America, a majority of the population would have found that LOL funny, and no lawsuit would have resulted from the remainder.

LOL   (so sue me)

University of California archeologists are fighting for the right to conduct DNA analysis on a pair of 9,300 year-old skeletons found on the San Diego campus.

... The University has finished calculating the tuition and fees for 18,600 semesters for these two students and wants to present them with the bill.

I consider myself Native American. I have not done the root trace thing. However all my great and great, great and great, great, great grandparents have been in this country from at least 1800. Before that I do not know.

What about those remains they found in Washington that they said pre dated native things and it wasn’t a native skeleton?

If I recall correctly, they were doing a dig, found those remains, then the Indians closed it down on some argument. I guess they don’t want the gravy train to stop. It pointed out that they weren’t the first here.
