fellow antiquarians, may like a
chance to muse about the relative arrival times of the tribes. all we can
offer is conjecture, and reasons why we adopt certain views, on this
topic. its an important thing to know. the earliest tribes,
regardless of any retrograde from former high culture, may contain kernels of
wisdom from the distant great cultures.
unlike the mainstream, i dont believe
that our continent was without humanity, until migrations came asia. that
is absurd. north america was a cradle of humanity, and had a dense high
culture long before east asia. american culture had been in decline for
thousands of years, before tribes came north from the andean region.
the earth signs of multiple previous
disasters, are in plain sight. horrible floods swept thru the southwest,
leaving it swept clean, sometimes stripping away soil from the deposits of the
last 120 mya, hundreds of feet. the former surface is seen on the mesa
tops. we must assume the mighty cause to have been poleshift, or stellar
impact. normally, we might expect that poleshift was the likely cause, but
there have been large impacts, and a possible glancing blow in the gulf and
these events could have destroyed all
life in their path. the trees of the great plains, and layers of its soil,
were swept away by miles high waves, sweeping north, and depositing the broken
remains in alaska and siberia. this is my take on it.
we ask, when did it happen? our
lads would deny it, or say mya. yet, the explorer club ate roasted mammoth
flesh from siberia. i doubt that the steaks were that old. the last
major event had to have been mere thousands of years ago. perhaps, only
5,000 years ago.
it appeared to me, that there has
been little accumulation of space dirt layers, atop the current surface, since
the last event. up to one foot of space dirt falls to earth per
the usa west, and midwest, has been
stripped of life, in the not too distant past. portions had been swept by
waves, leaving salt pools and flats, in the west. the midwest was likely
seabed more recently than thought, and in separate events. the records in
the earth, will have many blank pages, with old high cultures, separated by
marine deposits, before man again established himself. in those two-thirds
of the country, the human deposits will be separated by disaster layers. a
finely wrought, gold chain was found in a lump of coal in oklahoma.
peru had been densely populated from
the earliest time. several factors caused them to migrate north. the
populations thrived there, and growth beyond the production of food, sent tribes
north. every time a cordillera uplifted, it cut food production, sending
more tribes north. inca expansion may have sent the last wave of migrants
we might expect that some of the
aborigine tribes, native to north america, not destroyed by the disaster events,
have persisted from mya. perhaps some races of mexico, the eskimoes, and
the old tribe living in a desert within the grand canyon, may be among the
oldest cultures, now extant. the flat head tribe could be among the
earliest. more came north, than from asia, in my opinion. in fact, i
think most traffic thru bering, was from america to asia.
the native american tribes, do
recognize certain other tribes, as being among the first nations in north
america. the hopi and lenapes, likely are in that group. i need to
read more from the tribes, to see what they have written.
our continent has obvious proofs of
multiple disaster events. there were many glacial advances, that wiped the
record of life clean off the surface. total destruction erased cultures,
after a time, the ice and seas left the land, and men out of necessity moved
back in, no doubt with trepidation, and fear of another event.
there is reason to think that most
arrived thru mexico into our southwest. branching out north and east,
after better watered lands. the cherokee, seemed to have arrived in our
southeast. they still used the blowgun upon arrival in usa. maybe
the chirique of panama, are remnants of that migration north, who stayed there,
when others continued north into the carolinas.
thru discussion we might expand upon
these thoughts ...
