Isolated hunter-gatherer tribes are often viewed in the West as being primitive (pre-agriculture), not-yet-fully-evolved relics of the Stone Age.[1,2] Such people are frequently dubbed The People That Time Forgota concept widely recognized, even by those unfamiliar with Edgar Rice Burroughs classic 1924 novel (or the 1977 Hollywood movie).
However, faced with intriguing new evidence, anthropologists are having to completely rethink the Primitive Worlds: People Lost in Time stereotype...

Is this about Berkeley, California?
Actually, the might fit into the paradigm!
Poor dreamer...you pictures speak volumes about your comic book mentality.
That you have no appreciation for it shows what an unimaginative kill joy you are.
And notice please that the cited article takes no issue with the utility of evolutionary theory to determine if the hunter gatherer population was descended from a small offshoot of the agricultural population. Amazingly useful that evolutionary theory in determining patterns of common descent.
Talk about a kill joy...LOL! Reread what you just wrote, mr. spock. Are you trying to use Capt. Kirk’s comic book images to seem more human again? The juxtaposition couldn’t be better...LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!
Glad you find yourself amusing.
I notice you took no exception to the utility of evolutionary theory in making a determination of common ancestry.
But maybe concepts that Edgar Rice Burroughs dwelt upon, the basic concept of human dignity and nobility possible in all people, are lost to someone like you; you think of it as a “comic book mentality”.
Wrong picture. Some Pakunis just don’t know when to call it quits!
Thanks for the ping!

Nice Land of the Lost imagry. However, in context of this article, it was the Sleestack, and not the Paku, who had culturally devolved.
So archeo-lingusitics and genetic studies *CAN* be used to establish elements of a people’s history. I’m amazed!!
Did you read the article? Sounds like reverse evolution to me.
Ooooooo.....so they found a small society derived from a few cast-offs of another society....and these cast-offs have a different type of society.....and that means something to someone?
What it means to me is that you have a bunch of farmers.....who cast off a couple onto a raft down a river.....and these 2 people couldn’t farm for themselves because as any farm family knows.....you need more than 2 kids with no equipment to do the farming.
......so these couple of kids got food the way they could and eventually founded a small clan of 300 that practice the same behaviors as their 500-800 years ago ancestors did.
That sure means something.
I suppose the descendents of the original two also married outside of the tribe. Otherwise, their descendents (now 300) would be highly inbred.
