|Cast of the
Kennewick Man's skull>
(Star Trek's "Captain Picard")
Spitting image of the Kennewick Man
On July 28,1996 Will Thomas and Dave Deacy found a skeleton, later to be called the Kennewick Man, on the banks of the Columbia River in Washington State. They called the Benton County coroner's office, which then turned it over to Dr. Jim Chatters, a professor at Central Washington University, owner of Applied Paleoscience in Richland, Washington, and a local specialist in ancient bones who also happens to be married to an Indian woman. Immediately Dr. Chatters recognized the skull as Caucasoid and at first thought it might be that of an early 19th-century White pioneer, so he sent samples of the bones to an appropriate laboratory to be dated. Through advanced methods in radio carbon dating the Kennewick Man was found to be about 9,300 years old. The remains are the best preserved and fullest skeleton of the seven similar ones that have been discovered in North America. After many anthropologists and other scientists did further testing on these skeletons, they found out that, in one way or another, they all had Caucasoid features.1 Since 1938 archeologists throughout Western North America have been digging up artifacts from the later glacial era (approximately fourteen thousand to ten thousand years ago). Most of the skeletons and artifacts were found in the west; because the Eastern side of the continent is much more humid and acidic, which makes the long-term preservation of bones unlikely. The traits of most of these ancient artifacts differ from those of the artifacts we find in "Native American" cultures. Scientists have thus concluded that there was a large group of people who hunted large game, like mammoths and giant bison. They are called the Clovis people,2 named after discoveries at the Blackwater Draw site near Clovis, New Mexico.3 As I began to research the Caucasoid skeletons and other recent archeological findings, I found they had tools very similar to those of ancient European tribes, namely the Old World Solutrean people who also hunted large game. I then asked myself, who were the Clovis people and what happened to them?
The validity of these facts and their relation to the time period during which the Clovis people roamed on the North American continent are well supported by advances in radio-carbon dating methods. In the past, scientists were often unable to date closely the artifacts and skeletons that were found. For a long time, this inablity hindered analysis, findings and conclusions. Finally, for political reasons the skeletons were proclaimed to be Indian, and they were just re-buried, in accordance with the Civil Rights Act of 1966.
Since 1938, when archaeologists started discovering artifacts related to the Clovis people, scientific proof has been difficult to establish. Recently radio-carbon dating has improved so much that we can easily find out how old an artifact such as the Kennewick man really is. As a result, we know that the Clovis people were among the first humans in North America.
Isotopic-carbon testing continues to reveal ever more. Studies of the Kennewick Man's bones indicate a high diet of marine food.4 Other nearby finds of bone needles close to the Kennewick Man's remains indicate that the Kennewick man may possibly have worn tailored clothing5. (This was much further advanced than the "Native American" technology; even after the Spanish had arrived in North America the Indians still wore little clothing.) These astonishing finds further tell us that the Kennewick man was not alone, but that he lived in a community of some sort; and he was very different from the Paleo-Indians and Archaic Indians. (In Spirit Cave, Nevada, for instance, anthropologists Douglas Owsley and Richard Jante studied ancient remains that were contemporary with those of the Kennewick man; they found other artifacts were "very different" from those that have any resemblance to the implements of recent "Native" Americans).6
Similarities with the Old World Solutrean People
In addition to scientific proof, there is the unexplained and unexplainable. The Clovis people came (either from across the Atlantic or - just possibly - across the steppes from Russia to Alaska and then down along the northwestern coast) as mysteriously as they disappeared, hunted mammoths, mastodon, giant bison, antelope, and other creatures which are now all extinct -- (just as the Clovis people did).7 There are remarkable similarities to the Old World Solutrean people, who lived in western and southern ice age Europe, and who also hunted large game from twenty-two to eighteen thousand years before the present. The Solutrean people (most likely, their shamans) drew many pictures of giant bison, mammoths and horses in caves discovered by archeologists and others.
Horses too were on the North American continent during the reign of the Clovis people, but scientists cannot explain what happened to them. Could the horses have been used by the Clovis people to hunt their game as they brought them from Europe, and did they die with the Clovis people? Did they get used as food just as the large game that the Clovis people hunted? Was that how the horses became extinct as the late glacial era came to an end? These questions are still unexplained and are currently being investigated.
While examining the tools or weapons used by the Solutrean people of the Old World and the Clovis people of ancient North America, I found striking similarities. The flint tips used to kill game appear almost identical. It is almost as if the Clovis people were either descendants or students of the Solutrean people. (Compare pictures of their arrowheads, above.)
Caucasoid Life in North America
Caucasoid traits in the Kennewick Man -- with his long narrow face, slight overbite, prominent chin, and an ancient spear point in his hip (possibly from an enemy tribe), he looked much like Patrick Stewart, the Captain John Luke Picard of the Television series 'Star Trek'10 -- and other recent finds (revealed throughout the rest my research) challenge the conventional view that the first settlers of the Americas were Asian predecessors of Indians (the Beringian Bridge theory). The Fork Rock Cave in Oregon has been in the middle of ongoing new discoveries. The cave itself is small -- only thirty-five feet wide and sixty-five feet long. It was here in 1938 that about seventy pairs of sandals made of sagebrush were discovered by Luther S. Cressman.11 Radio-carbon dating technology dated the sandals at nine thousand years old (fortunately, the sandals were preserved until radio-carbon dating was invented). Charcoal was also found with a radio-carbon date indicating it was thirteen thousand two-hundred years old.12 The sagebrush sandals were intricately woven, and the other items found in the cave included projectile points, scrapers, drills, a wooden trigger for a trap, small pieces of basketry and awls to make leather (or tailored clothing for kinfolk of the Kennewick man), all of which indicated skilled workers.13 These differ vastly from Indian artifacts both in ancient North America and in modern Indian findings.
Douglas Owsley, Division Head of Physical Anthropology at the National Museum of Natural History (Smithsonian Institution) in Washington D.C., has examined all of the seven well-preserved skeletons found in North America and found that they all have Caucasoid features in common. These seven different skeletons with Caucasoid features were found at seven different sites and at different periods of time. The Kennewick man, one of the seven, has an ancient Indian spearhead wound in his hip.14 All found came from the period near the end of the later glacial era, during which the Clovis people disappeared - a fact which strengthens the argument that these Caucasoid skeletons were related to the Clovis people.
How the Clovis People Came to North America
The Beringian Bridge theory holds that large bands of Proto-Mongoloids (or those whom the politically correct romanticize as "Native Americans") migrated over a land bridge connecting the two continents twelve to fourteen thousand years ago. The Kennewick Man, the above-mentioned sandals, and other objects (or tools) -- all unrelated to Indian findings -- suggest that "Native Americans" were not alone in the mass migration. Is it possible to say that people came from both Asia and Europe and met? Or even that the Caucasoids, who evolved in the far north along the glacial fronts, were actually the first to cross the land bridge or the (then) short water distances to North America? I think so. At a professional conference at the end of October 1999, two prominent archeologists, Dennis Stanford and Bruce Bradley, suggested that the Solutrean people crossed the Atlantic from what is now northern Spain and southern France about 18,000 years ago and settled in North America, establishing what is now called the "Clovis" culture. This construction of the evidence is strongly supported by projectile points and other correspondences between the two cultures. We know that humans had been sailing around the Pacific for thousands of years prior to the appearance of the Clovis culture, so it is no great stretch of the imagination to suppose that the Solutreans used skin boats to cross the much smaller Atlantic in perhaps as little as three weeks. The fact that the shared Solutrean-Clovis technology appears at the same time in both Solutrea and Clovis - and nowhere else - strongly bolsters the idea that we are looking at two branches of the same people: a Caucasoid people.
Another discovery in Central Asia also shows some Clovis burial traits. This eighteen-thousand-year-old grave, the burial site of two children near Lake Baikal in Siberia on what could have been a route to North America, is very similar to what appears to be the grave of two cremated children found in a Montana excavation; both interments also had evidence of mammoth bones surrounding the bodies (a cult practice of the Clovis people).15
Evolutionary BranchingAt this point it would be helpful to give some idea of the general outlines of human evolution, to be able to see the peopling of the Americas in its larger context. The prehistory of our species follows the general evolutionary pattern: there was not simply one, but many different branches of the higher primate category. Diversification of types was the norm and, contrary to liberal wish-dreams, they did not cross-breed. Homo Erectus of eastern Asia a million years ago, for example, is not an ancestor of modern man, no matter what the anti-evolutionary miscegenationists would like to believe. It is most unlikely that even the closely-related Homo Neanderthalensis interbred with early Homo Sapiens, despite what some recent Portuguese anthropologists have claimed. The following table shows some of the continuous, seemingly haphazard branching (speciation) which led to our emergence.

In recent months, the unrelenting media and political pressure to construct a "multi-racial" Kennewick Man has begun to affect even Dr. Jim Chatters. He has reacted like the countless Christian biblical researchers who disbelieve in the resurrection of Christ. When asked whether they believe in it or not, they quickly change the topic to the "real" meaning of Jesus (which somehow always turns out to be politically correct). Similarly, Dr. Chatters is now claiming that Kennewick Man is "an ancestor of all of us." In contradiction to his own findings about the bones, he has even gone to the extreme of inventing a new face for Kennewick Man with an "Indian" nose in order to please the media and the propaganda masters.
Despite such obscurantist, liberaloid blather and contortions, it is ridiculous to view the branch represented by Kennewick Man as somehow belonging to American Indians or not being Caucasoid. And it is impossible for Kennewick Man to have been an "ancestor of all of us," since he and eventually his tribe were exterminated by the Indians. (Of course, facts have never been important to the anti-White racial miscegenationists dominating modern American culture; only propaganda matters.)
Pragmatic reasoning vs. Oral History Telling
Today, with new archaeological findings and scientific research, it does seem evident that both a European People (the Clovis People) and Proto-Mongoloids (Indians) migrated to the Americas in similar movements (and time). But what happened to the Clovis people? Were they pushed out by the Proto-Mongoloids?
These questions have spawned much controversy, mainly because it may impact "Native American" rights and, above all, government money from non-"Native American" taxpayers. The "Native (?) Americans" argue that the Kennewick man and other skeletons should be buried under the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act of 1990. But with the new evidence, it is now clear that the Kennewick Man cannot belong to any existing tribe, and scientists should be allowed to study the skeleton under the Archaeological Resources Protection Act of 1979. Scientists and "Native American" tribes are continuing their battle in court, but regardless of the legal outcome (which depends on politics, not truth) we can start rethinking and rewriting ancient North American history as to who the first settlers on the continent were and what happened to some of them.
North American Indians believe in storytelling as not only a traditional but an accurate method of transmitting their history. Armand Minthorn, a tribal religious leader for the Umatillas tribe, stated that "from our oral histories we know that we have been a part of this land since the beginning of time ... Our elders have told us that Indian people did not always look the way we look today ... We already know our history. It is passed on to us through our elders and through our religious practices."16 Given this interpretation of knowledge and truth, it is no wonder that the cultures of Mr. Minthorn's ancestors and of other Native Americans remain at such a pitiably low level even after having been exposed to White civilization for centuries.
According to the logic and scientific findings of the White man, the oral transmission of history can be distorted and much of it forgotten if it is not written. (This is so regardless of the obvious fears Indians have about their mythology being labeled as fantasy and about the possibility -- some would say probability -- of their ancestors having committed genocide against Whites.) We must find out the truth of human history; the past holds the records of many problems that plague us now and that may plague us in the future. It may be immoral to some to study the bones of the dead. But the same "Native American" people who have called this "immoral," for religious or other reasons, also put cedar chips and leaves into the wooden box which held the Kennewick Man's remains; they thereby introduced matter which could damage the ancient relics. They also put other bones into the Kennewick Man's box to make others believe that this discovery was a hoax.17 Not only this, but several of the bones in the care of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Batelle Institute, Building S-5 ("Sigma Five") in Richland, Washington, mysteriously disappeared. Naturally, the Corps blamed it on Dr. Chatters, in spite of the fact that all the evidence clearly indicates that the bones' disappearance was due to the anti-White attitude of the Corps in letting the Indians physically handle the bones. (The Corps did not, of course, show this same deference to the Whites of the Asatru religion, who believe the Kennewick Man to have been an early Caucasoid). Such acts of vandalism are now hopefully being prevented and proper methods of storing the bones are finally being used. As far as Indians' assertions about (White) scientists' "immorality," are concerned, we may say that scientific study of these antique bones is moral if it can be used for the good of man.
Under the orders of U.S. Magistrate John Jelderks in Portland, on Friday, October 30, 1998, the Kennewick Man's bones were finally removed from the jurisdiction of the anti-White U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and transferred to the Burke Museum in Seattle. (This was done even though a Burke curator had sent the concerned scientists an offensive e-mail “that was replete with insult, misinformation and accusation,” according to the scientists.) Located on the campus of the ultra-liberal and extremely anti-White University of Washington, the Burke Museum is nonetheless a major national resource for information on the natural and cultural history of the Pacific Northwest.
Finally the scientists got a chance to study the remains. Dr. Jane Richards concluded that the Kennewick Man appears to have the same skull structure found in the remains of Marmes Man (found at the Marmes cave site on the Snake River in Washington state). If this is borne out by forensic pathologists, then a pre-Indian migration of non-Mongoloid peoples can be demonstrated. This would certainly not answer all the questions, but it would be a start and maybe an impetus to archaeologists to continue the much needed study and excavations in both eastern Washington state and eastern Oregon (providing financial blocks to applications for rescue archaeology are removed).
From the beginning, some scientists were of the view that Kennewick Man and the Marmes relics most closely resemble the Ainu of Japan - an early Caucasoid people which was the original race of Japan, pre-dating the Mongoloid types now predominant in that land. After much delay, the government agents from Seattle's Burke Museum admitted that the Kennewick Man was indeed closest to the Ainu -- but they hastened to say that his traits were also shared to some extent by the Polynesians of the South Pacific. (This latter would have come about as a result of later racial miscegenation between Ainu and Polynesians.) The truth-hating mass media claimed that the Burke investigators had found the Kennewick Man to be "Asian," thereby suggesting to the uninformed that he was Mongoloid rather than Caucasoid. After all, the people (and specifically Whites) have to be protected from the truth. Nonetheless, it did slip out that Kennewick Man was -- and is -- totally unrelated to any modern American Indian type. So much for the American Indian Movement's mythology about the ancestors of the Indians springing up out of the ground like mushrooms and the Kennewick Man being one of them. Of course, the subspecies of White neurotics known euphemistically as "liberals" is riven by cognitive dissonance over these findings. Such a thing cannot, in the dominant anti-White view they espouse, be true. It will have to be suppressed. Unfortunately, the liberals and their many corporate supporters may have the power to do this, since they control such organizations as the Army Corps of Engineers and, apparently, the Burke Museum in Seattle.
At the beginning of December 1999, the Associated Press reported that the federal government and the Burke Museum were confessing to yet another delay in the release of investigatory results about the Kennewick Man. This time it was a delay in releasing dating-test results on the specious ground that the bones didn't have enough protein for good testing. In response, a Portland lawyer, Alan Schneider, representing eight anthropologists suing the government over the remains, pointed out that the government's agents should have done chemical analyses to determine which fragments were best for testing. The anthropologists also charged that the federal hirees took as much as 100 times as much bone as they need for testing. In other words, we can be sure the government has done its best to bias the results in favor of its pre-drawn conclusions. It is difficult to guess exactly what tack the government was trying to take here. Possibly they were trying to taint the bones in some way which would make it impossible to determine anything at all, so they could then give the "benefit of the doubt" to the Proto-Mongoloids. More likely, "our" government might also have been attempting to drag out and play down the whole issue of the Kennewick Man in the hope that Whites would forget all about this momentous discovery and the bones could be quietly buried with animal remains on some tribal reservation in Washington State. Your tax dollars at work.
In the second week of January, 2000, the results of yet more radio-carbon testing were finally allowed to seep out to the newspapers, TV and radio. The tests indicated an age of about 9,200 years before the present. In other words, no real difference from what had originally been determined three years previously. Or rather, the difference was in the government's obscuring of the truth through delays. The regime's lawyers then proceeded to argue that the skeleton should be betrayed to the Indians because it belonged "to a culture that predated the arrival of Columbus." In others words, since the perverse Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act ("NAGPRA") of 1990 claims that any remains dating to before Columbus' discovery of the New World are "Indian," the evidence that non-Indians inhabited the continent before 1492 must be destroyed.
So there you have it. The twisted logic of the regime now enables its psychobabbling functionaries to take the bones of, say, ancient Vikings found on Long Island and give them "back" to Redskins on the absurd basis that the Vikings were in North America before Columbus and therefore "must" be Indians. After this perversion of justice the financially weak Asatru Folk Assembly withdrew from the litigation, recognizing that the power of governmentally enforced lie can defeat all truth. The scientists continue to fight doggedly on. In early January, 2001, they claimed that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers violated the National Historic Preservation Act by plowing over the burial site where the 9,300-year-old skeleton had been found. In response, Corps officials lied that they had simply been "trying to keep looters away" from the site when they covered it with 500 tons of rocks and soil in 1998. The scientists pointed out that the Corps violated laws governing preservation of historical artifacts and risked ruining the original burial site. Of course, since the anti-White U.S. Government has all the money and power in the world, it doesn't take much insight to see what the outcome is going to be.
The scientists' persistence is all the more admirable in the face of the grotesque fraud perpetrated on Monday, September 25, 2000 by Bruce Babbit, the Secretary of the U.S. Interior Department. This spin artist meowed that "Although ambiguities in the data made this a close call, I was persuaded by the geographic data and oral histories of the five tribes that collectively assert they are descendants of people who have been in the region of the Upper Columbia Plateau for a very long time," according to the Associated Press. And with that pretext, he decided that Kennewick Man was to be given to five American Indian tribes who claim him as an ancestor. Luckily for the scientists, however, the haughty Babbit will not determine the fate of the skeleton; instead, they have continued to prosecute their lawsuit and, after the end of the corrupt Clinton administration and its lackeys, may just possibly win it.
On January 20, 2001, William Jefferson Clinton left office under much shame and disgrace, and the scientists were able to pursue their case without as much governmental harassment and obstruction as thitherto. On April 19, 2001 the Associated Press reported that they had filed documents in federal court showing that the Clinton regime, seeking to avoid a "messy" debate over just who the first human inhabitants of North America really were, had inexcusably and improperly allowed contacts between White House staff and members of a coalition of five American Indian tribes seeking to bury the skeleton. Further, the federal officials "coached the coalition on how to plead its case." These documents make even more manifest the criminality of the genosuicidal Left masterminded by the fatherless Clinton.
In the face of these political attempts to suppress truth, science marched on. On Tuesday, July 31, 2001, the news media carried a report by Guy Gugliotta of the Washington Post, "Evidence suggests earlier migration to America," with the subtitle, "STUDY: A more genetically diverse population is found," about the results of a new study on the early peopling of the Americas. It said the following:
|Ancient peoples only loosely related to modern Asians crossed the Arctic land bridge to settle America some 15,000 years ago, according to a study offering new evidence that the Western Hemisphere hosted a more genetically diverse population at a much earlier time than previously thought.|
|The early immigrants most closely resembled the prehistoric Jomon people of Japan and their closest modern descendants, the Ainu, from the Japanese island of Hokkaido, the study said. Both the Jomon and Ainu have skull and facial characteristics more genetically similar to those of Europeans than to mainland Asians.|
|The immigrants settled throughout the hemisphere, and were in place when a second migration - from mainland Asia - came across the Bering Strait beginning 5,000 years ago and swept southward as far as modern-day Arizona and New Mexico, the study said. The second migration is the genetic origin of today's Eskimos, Aleuts and the Navajo of the U.S. southwest. The study in today's edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences adds new evidence to help settle one of anthropology's most contentious debates: Who were the first Americans? And when did they come?|
|"When this has been done before, it's been done from one point of view," said University of Michigan physical anthropologist C. Loring Brace, who led the team of researchers from the United States, China and Mongolia that wrote the new report. "We try to put together more dimensions."|
|For decades, anthropologists' dogma held that the Americas were populated by a single migration from Asia around 11,200 years ago - the supposed age of the earliest of the elegantly crafted, grooved arrowheads first found in the 1930s at Clovis, N.M.|
|By the end of the 1990s, however, the weight of evidence had pushed the date of the first arrivals back several thousand years. But as the migration timetable slipped, additional questions and controversies have arisen. The 1996 discovery in Kennewick of the nearly complete skeleton of a 9,300-year-old man with "apparently Caucasoid" features stimulated interest in the possibility of two or more migrations - including a possible influx from Europe.|
|The new study attempted to answer this question by comparing 21 different skull and facial characteristics from more than 10,000 ancient and modern populations in both the Western Hemisphere and the old World.|
|The findings provide strong new evidence supporting earlier work suggesting that ancient Americans, like Kennewick Man, were descended from the Jomon, who walked from Japan to the Asian mainland and eventually to the Western Hemisphere on land bridges as the Earth began to warm up about 15,000 years ago at the end of the last Ice Age.|
Kennewick Man, in short, is not an Amerind, but a representative of the eastern branch of the White or Caucasoid race.
Finally, a word about the federal government itself. In the last decade or so, business and financial writers have talked a great deal about the "culture" of business organizations and how to change it. This topic should also be applied today to the "culture" of the American government. As is the case also with the major religions, the central psychodynamic of this organization is never mentioned in polite company. That psychodynamic is the insensate drive to push the White race to suicide through racial miscegenation while the U.S.-based oligarchy attains socio-economic domination of the entire globe. All kinds of irrelevant peripheral matters are raised to block any discussion thereof. And vituperation - the old ad hominem logical error - is the normal response to those who object to racial suicide. Since the unprecedented rise of the global economy masks the biological (to say nothing of the moral) destruction of the Caucasoid peoples, the majority of Whites is easily persuaded to go quietly into the eternal night. The inner circles of American power are keenly conscious of this reality. For they are the forces most eagerly seeking the Brave New World Order of mulattoism. Their strongest ally is the sick religion: Christianity. This creed, in all its denominations, claims that all Whites are "guilty" by virtue of their white skins. Non-Whites (the darker the better) must be "understood" if they act like animals. This, then, is the all-pervasive, government-led irrationality which seeks to turn the Caucasoid skeleton called the Kennewick Man over to Proto-Mongoloids.
Possible Causes of the Disappearance of the Clovis People
The ancient Indian spearhead wound in the Kennewick Mans' hip, and he himself, support the idea that his people as well as the Clovis people (assuming they were not the same) were European-type peoples who descended from the same eastern Caucasoid branch which gave rise to the indigenous Ainu of Japan and who coexisted in conflict with the Archaic Indians and/or the Paleo-Indians in North America during the later glacial era. The fact that the Ainu are in fact indigenous in Japan is another way of saying that they preceded the Mongoloids in inhabiting that island nation. Similarly, they are quite likely to have preceded the Mongoloids not only to Japan but also to North America using the same means of transportation in both cases: boats.18
Early man's hunt to extinction of large mammals
As the Kennewick and Clovis peoples ran out of large game in North America, the pressure to survive forced them to look to other strategies to cover their needs, one of them being territorial defense and offense. In conclusion, I propose three possibilities about why the these peoples vanished as mysteriously as they appeared: the first, which is the least likely, is that they starved with the inability to adjust to new methods of hunting; the second is a war with neighboring Indian tribes in which they were annihilated, which is probably the most common theory based on the historically high frequency of genocide;19 finally, the third possibility has them assimilating with coexisting North American Indian Tribes.
The possibility that the Caucasoids were starved out of existence is not really supported. There are plenty of food resources in the Pacific Northwest and in all of North America as well. Since the scientific testing already done on the Kennewick man shows he had a high marine diet (possibly salmon), together with the lush vegetation, buffaloes, caribou, elk, and deer, it seems improbable that his people could starve.
But the competition for food and land that arose with neighboring non-Caucasoids could have ignited hostilities that lasted several hundred years. As the extinction of big game forced all early Americans to develop new methods of hunting and gathering, the Caucasoids began to invade the territories of other peoples or found their territories invaded by them - invasions which prompted violent confrontations. Rising tensions between peoples led to wars. It is quite possible that the larger number of Indians, being different tribes themselves and often at war even with each other, more readily attacked the Caucasoids because they were easily identified as an enemy by their physical and racial differences. And thus the Red Man exterminated the White Man utterly.
To combat the serious research in recent years by various scientists now documenting the genetically based, great behavioral differences between races, liberal anti-White academics are now taking a new tack. There is, they assert, no such thing as race. They claim that the momentous racial differences in such areas as intelligence, brainwave frequency, mental endurance, law-abidingness, ability to defer gratification, and many other "mental" or even "spiritual" traits have sprung up in the last few thousand years of prehistory and cannot be considered "racial" differences. Therefore, on this view, behold! there are no races (except for purposes of affirmative action) at all.
This, of course, is little more than defining the issue of biological differences out of existence. A neat trick on the part of the academics. They get to have their cake and eat it, too. Racial differences are explained away as "cultural." Whites are defined as merely having (or being) cultures of evil, while non-Whites and mulattoes are romanticized as "victims" of the monstrous Whites. This interpretation has of course found a great deal of support among the race-suicidal components of the White population, which are concentrated in the media and academe. Redefinition of the facts allows them to obscure reality and justify their war on evolution.
As far as Indian "culture" is concerned. we may look at the earliest forms of civilization (city-systems) in the Americas, the Mayas and the Aztecs, for an example of the institutionalized violence and elaborate forms of human sacrifice already in the New World long before the Europeans arrived. The Aztecs, whose ancestors originally came from what is now the U.S. southwest (their language is related to that of the Navajos, and their own myths tell of their migration from the north), were savage warriors who wiped out many lesser tribes, sacrificing and eating many thousands of people at a time. The violent measures that were used by them did not just happen. Their cruel methods were taught, advanced and promoted through an elaborately constructed mythology.
Thirdly, we come to assimilation. This theory has its pros and cons. For assimilation, one can look to Indian oral history. Older Indians say that their ancestors looked physically much different than they look today. Assimilation would change their physical appearance and support their theory. Then there is the U.S. melting-pot ideology which holds that assimilation and the termination of evolution are inevitable, just and wonderful for everybody. But besides the decline of technology following the disappearance of the early American Caucasoids, there is still not very much evidence that Indian tribes, before the "melting pot" situation of modern America, had anything but Proto-Mongoloid genes. So if there was any Caucasoid admixture, it was quite small.
The Clovis people (whether or not they are related to the Kennewick Man) had advanced weaponry for hunting and most likely wore sandals and tailored clothes. David Owsley and other archaeologists and anthropologists have concluded that these technological achievements are completely unrelated to anything developed by Proto-Mongoloids.
We are left, it seems to me, with the scenario of genocidal wars. This was the cause of the disappearance of the Clovis people which anthropologists were at a loss to explain until three years ago. But with the incredible discovery of the Kennewick Man, history on the North American continent can now be rethought and rewritten.
Appendix: Paranormal Experiences of Dr. James Chatters in Connection with Kennewick ManAlthough anything called "paranormal" has been anathema to the official scientific establishment in modern times, Dr. Chatters has had some experiences involving the Kennewick Man which can only be described as uncanny.
To begin with, it must be remarked that among scientists, forensic specialists and others who work with the bones of the dead, it is not at all unusual to get a "feel" for the personality of the former owner of those bones. Those who experience this phenomenon are quite aware of the fact that they are encountering the spiritual essence of another person. Thus it was with Dr. Chatters. He came to "know" the Kennewick Man as a human being, not just as a pile of bones. This knowledge is normally sensed through the slow-brainwave faculty of memory, which captures much more than merely personal experiences. That is to say, our memory not only takes in information from our daily life experiences, but also from the "mental" infrastructure of existence, which remembers all events.
In addition, one day when Dr. Chatters was handling the Kennewick Man skull, he was looking at it from the rear. Now it so happens that the back of the skull is missing, so that when you view it from behind, you can see through the skull and the eye sockets to the other side. As he was doing this, he suddenly found himself looking at the room with the Kennewick Man's own eyes! He had become momentarily "identified" with the Kennewick Man.
Afterwards, when he would drive along the highways through the semi-arid landscape of Eastern Washington in his car, he found himself inexplicably feeling a mysterious attraction to that landscape, as though he needed to be out there doing something. Just as the Kennewick Man had done so many thousands of years before.
When the politicized Army Corps of Engineers demanded possession of the bones, it was a sad day for Dr. Chatters. However, when he learned that the Indians were demanding to bury the bones with their own kind, he felt something far worse: sheer, inexplicable panic. This feeling of panic was not something that came from Dr. Chatters himself. It flooded him from a dimension beyond our world. He was feeling the terror of the Kennewick Man himself when faced with the prospect of being confined with his ancient mortal enemies, the Indians. Irrational? Yes. Like the irrational terror felt when suddenly faced by a murderer aiming a lethal weapon at you.
Finally, Dr. Chatters admits to having other paranormal experiences related to Kennewick Man. He will not say what these experiences are, so that others can only guess. One guess is that he has actually experienced apparitions of this ancient representative of the Caucasoid race, apparitions which made clear to him that the truth about the early peopling of the Americas must be made known, and that the suppression of reality in favor of some romantic notion of Redskin "noble savages" must be ended.
