Kennewick Man bones not from Columbia Valley, scientist tells tribes
The Seattle Times ^ | 10 October 2012 | Lynda V. Mapes

Posted on 10/10/2012 8:02:02 AM PDT by oh8eleven

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.

Sooo, despite all the evidence, Native Americans still won't accept the fact he's not one of them.

You know how those immigrant types are ~ they come down off the ramp from the Boing and they're asking for Congress to tighten up the rules!

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.

It is fairly obvious to anyone who takes the time to look at the “clay model” of the “Kennewick Man” that he was actually the captain of the Enterprise, Jean Lus Picard. He most likely was “transported” to the Columbia Plateau sometime after the Enterprise accidentally passed through a “temporal” “rift” or “distortion”. The same type of thing happened at least a dozen times to the Enterprise.

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.

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.

That's why they want the evidence buried.

However, just like with Kennewick Man, it won't stop them from trying.

He must have been wearing a red shirt that day.

Vintage Skulls

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?

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.
