Skip to comments.Kennewick Man bones not from Columbia Valley, scientist tells tribes

Owsley says study shows that not only wasn't Kennewick Man Indian, he wasn't even from the Columbia Valley, which was inhabited by prehistoric Plateau tribes.
Tribal members listened for hours to Owsley's highly detailed presentation, but it did not budge their conviction that Kennewick Man is a part of their people's past and needs to be reburied.

It just never changes.
Eventually those Indians are going to have to show us their passports and visas though. Ever since they found out the Sa'ami were FIRST, none of these guys should be cut any slack at all.
If there was an ancient casino also uncovered, that would explain how the coastal Indian ended up there.
Well they have their oral traditions and that’s all that counts. It is the truth because they say so, silly little scientific data means nothing. Ask Elizabeth Warren, she’s a Cherokee because she says so, and therefore entitled to special treatment and undeserved tenure.
This issue, of course, is not about these bones. It’s about money and power and the tribe wants more money from the Federal Government and they want more power.
They have a pretty good racket going, and it would be bad for business if it turned out the first “native Americans” weren’t Injuns.
Plateau Tribal Members are obviously aware through stories passed from generation to generation that their ancestors brutally murdered the peace loving and always politically correct Captain Picard. They want to keep this brutal and shameful crime covered up.
You bet the Indians want to bury this.
Good article and pages of comments on the Seattle Times website.
We have some, appears to be, according to NY State archeologists leaker, Viking timbers and remains on old Mohican land but the Mohicans can`t claim it coz they ain`t Celts.- yup
Also some evidence found next to my farm in 2008 by NY State archaeologists that date back 5,000+ years but since the native tribes only used the area as a battleground for almost killing each other off for thousands of years, they can`t claim it neither.
If it turned out that people from prehistoric Europe were here before the "native" Americans, and the "native" Americans from Asia exterminated them, it would severely disrupt their narrative.
Funny how science isn’t the be all to end all. The earth is flat. No, it’s round. No, it’s flat.
Maybe Kennewick Man was on vacation.

Thank goodness I am not the only one who has recognized this!

He must have been wearing a red shirt that day.
The oldest human remains found in the Americas were recently "discovered" in the storeroom of Mexico's National Museum of Anthropology. Found in central Mexico in 1959, the five skulls were radiocarbon dated by a team of researchers from the United Kingdom and Mexico and found to be 13,000 years old. They pre-date the Clovis culture by a couple thousand years, adding to the growing evidence against the Clovis-first model for the first peopling of the Americas."
"Of additional significance is the shape of the skulls, which are described as long and narrow, very unlike those of modern Native Americans.

So true. So true. There is video evidence available on YouTube. You can see what happened when a Native American looking fellow tried to cause trouble on the Enterprise.
Contrast these two videos and it will be obvious why Picard did not make it and Kirk was able to kick their butts:

The Indian tribes have too much to lose with out having the distinction of being the first inhabitants of the NW. I remember the fight they put up several years ago at the mere suggestion that Kennewick Man was not American Indian. It is a political issue to them.
They deny the land bridge that existed before they did.
The article mentions that he was deliberately buried. My conjecture is that he was a costal person traveling/trading up the river where he dies or was killed and buried. Have they established cause of death?

if it looks like an Egyptian, walks like an Egyptian ...
In consideration of the Tarim Basin folks, perhaps those possible people from “Europe” were from Asia after all. All of the European groups seem to have come out of Central Asia in waves over the millennia.
