MitochondrialDNA (mtDNA) haplogroup testing led to the surprising hypothesis that some of the first Americans came from Europe thousands of years ago.
Fascinating! We are ALL related. LOL The Scots-Irish had Viking/Norse ancestors as well.
thanks for posting. very interesting
Fascinating. Thanks for the interesting post.
I am one of those, yDNA R1b and mtDNA 'V'.
I could have been a Viking who went to Ireland and stayed.
My grandmother is related (U5a DNA) to 9,000 year old Cheddar Man
Maybe how the blue eye gene came to be in Native Americans?
I've read that Thomas Jefferson ordered Lewis & Clark not to mention one word about light-skinned, blue eyed Indians in their written scouting report to him.
His concern was that some other European power would use that 'hook' to claim those areas that were not yet part of the USA. So....
Very interesting ! Thanks.
Wisconsin must be Algonquin/Old Norse for "land of no wampum"...
Additional evidence supporting this theory was found in a recently translated Walam Olum text which read, in part, "What's in your wallet?"
Wonder how The Orthodoxy in science are taking this?
Maybe they walked west looking for Romans to kill.
There’s record of blue eyed Natives east of the Cherokee regions. The largest tribe in the Piedmont spoke Algonquin. There is some speculation that the failed colony at Roanoke Island provided a blue eyed gene.
There is no mention of the Injuns chowing down on Lutefisk and washing it down with akvavit, so I am not believing this Norvegian ancestry ting. Could be a ploy to get a casino in Oslo.
I didn't know this guy had done an 8 volume piece on it, but he undoubtedly brought in all the related materials he could find.
I have a single volume of a book written by a fellow who knew the writer, and probably Myron Payne ~ and I know that Mr. Cline, a family friend, was probably also in that circle (he worked with Indians in various places to reclaim their cultural heritage/baggage).
The little bit of the material I've ever seen is fairly readable ~ provided you have a guide to American Indian sign language (which shows up in it as well) and some experience with Old West Gothic (including that quaint language used in England before the Normans conquered the place in 1066).
So Frode Th. Omdahl, from Stavanger, the Viking's very jumping off place cracked the code.
I wonder if he also earlier studied American Indian Sign Language and if the pictographs matched those standards for ideographic representations.
BTW, the Walum Olem has been considered made-up BS since it was discovered ~ a genuine fake ~ but yet, it was always pretty obvious that it was trying to convey meaning and information. The imprint of actual language is in there. It's not just an apparent jumble of clan structures and totems.
Didn’t some of them also have red hair?
No proof as of yet any American Indian in my family but my ancestors look like American Indian. All my granddads brothers and sisters had dark skin and dark eyes. My granddad has light skin and blue eyes. He had 12 brothers and sisters. So 1 in 13 ended up with blue eyes light skin in his family. Interesting.....
