New Light On Ancient White Migrations

The European Connection

Is there a connection between ancient Europe and the earliest inhabitants of America? A new well-researched three-part documentary film series has been prepared by archaeologists which provides very convincing factual evidence to prove this.

Entitled, The First Americans: Ancient White Migrations, it presents the scholarly findings of leading archaeologists and anthropologists, and includes an impressive amount of actual onsite slides and film footage of ancient mummies, skeletons, tools, and artwork. The publishers are apparently never named, leading one to suspect that they may be high-level archaeologists or curators who may suffer career harm from exposure; it is frankly presented as politically-incorrect information "suppressed by the mainstream media."

Yet this is information which has long been hinted at in bits and pieces by "establishment" media sources. For example, many years ago I read a book in the local public library which in a short sentence or two spoke of pre-Columbian "red-haired skeletons" being found in South America, but curiously enough there were no further details or documentation given by the author. Until recently, the only source for more detailed information on this has been the excellent books by Anglo-Israel author, Steven M. Collins.

The evidence from scholars indicates that there may have been several waves of European settlement of North America. The first occurred in early Paleolithic times, with European colonists providing the earliest inhabitants of the Americas. This is documented very well in the new Ancient White Migrations film series, which postulates both an "ice age" land bridge across Iceland and Greenland, as well as sailing ships across the Atlantic in very early times. Another migration from Europe occurred as well, possibly at the time of Kings David and Solomon, of which Steven Collins' books provide evidence. The depth of the accumulated data on early white migrations to America is remarkable.

In the San Francisco Chronicle Newspaper, Friday, July 25, 2003, a headline stated: "New questions about migration of the first Americans: Doubts surface about land routes through Siberia" The article stated, "...It is difficult to substantiate a north to south population movement. Smithsonian archaeologist Dennis Stanford was looking in a different direction for the origin of the first people that entered America. He was looking not west to Asia, but east to Europe." Until now, the most ancient bones and tools found in North America have nearly always been assumed to be "Indian," but the evidence proves otherwise.

These American ancient archaeological sites have in fact been identified as "Solutrean," which is a designation for early European culture. The term relates to the style of early Paleolithic-era implements found in the Solutre Cave in France. Not only similar tools but also the same method of making tools is found in early American sites as in Solutrean sites in Europe. "Nothing similar in eastern Asia has been found...the closest association is Western Europe...They don't show up anywhere else," says Dr. James Chatters, Forensic Anthropologist, Washington State. These tools include end scrapers, burins, antler harpoons, bone points, and bifaces. Archaeologist Dr. Albert C. Goodyear III of the University of South Carolina, stated, "The Solutrean [European-style] toolkit is, with a few exceptions, nearly identical to that of Clovis." (Discovering Archaeology Journal, Feb. 2000) The Clovis, New Mexico site of ancient human bones is quite famous, yet few people besides archaeologists realize that the remains are not "Indian" but European!

"When I look at Clovis and ask myself where in the world the culture was derived from, I would say Europe," reports C. Vance Haynes, U.S. Paleo-Indian Geochronologist in the New Yorker Magazine, June 16, 1997, p.77.

The Handbook of Middle American Indians, by Morris Swadesh states that the Nadene or Athabascan linguistic family of the American Great Lakes region is related to the Basque language of Europe. He identified at least 36 words which were identical, including words meaning "birch bark," "elbow," "foot," "hand," "breast," and "shoulder." Other scholars also find links between Europe and the languages of the northeastern quadrant of North America. How could an American Indian language be related to European languages unless there was some kind of pre-Columbian visit of Europeans to America?

It is interesting that these "commonalities" are centered in the northeastern United States, facing Europe, rather than in the Pacific Northwest. Even more significant, the oldest skeletal remains have also been found in the northeastern U.S. rather than the west coast. This is an exact contradiction of the popular belief that the earliest inhabitants of America came across a Bering Strait land bridge from Asia, and later spread eastward across the continent. The Bering Strait theory will therefore have to be revised to admit that the Paleolithic-era migration from Europe to America came much earlier.

Red-Haired Indians?

In Aku Aku: The Secret of Easter Island, Thor Heyerdahl (bestselling author of Kon Tiki) stated,

"Incan legend repeatedly refers to red haired bearded white men of a civilization which existed in South America before the Incas themselves."

These white people were called by the Indians, the "Vira Cocha." In support of these legends is the discovery in the Chaucilla Paracas burial grounds in Paracas, Peru, of ancient mummies with tall long faces and red, wavy hair.

"Their god, Quetzalcoatl, had light eyes and hair color, and a beard [which is never found among Indians themselves.] Legend has it that this god came from over the sea and taught the Indians how to raise corn and build structures."

More of these White mummies are found at the Museo National de Anthropologia y Arqueologia, Lima, Peru, with auburn hair and Caucasoid-shaped skulls. Archaeologists estimate that these mummies are approximately 2,000 years old, dating to about the time of the Messiah.

It was perhaps these people who established what is known as the Chachapoyas Empire of Peru, which existed until 1470 A.D. They were also known as the "Cloud People," and built giant statues, aqueducts, roads, and "twenty thousand bridges." The imposing Culeap Fortress high in the Andes was also their work.

Heyerdahl tells us that Pedro Pizzaro, the famed Spanish Conquistador, found that "the Inca elite classes had reddish hair, were tall, and were actually Whiter than the Spaniards themselves." (Aku Aku, p. 351) In fact, the Indians thought that the arriving Spaniards were the return of the Vira Cocha people.

Further north in Chichen Itza, Mexico, is a pre-Columbian wall painting in the Temple of the Warriors which depicts white-skinned captives being led away as prisoners by dark-skinned guards.

Anglo-Israel author Steven Collins, in his book, Israel's Tribes Today, tells the fascinating story of Thomas Jefferson's research into the Hebrew origins of some of the Indians on the American eastern seaboard, and in particular of the Hebrew connection with the Mandan tribe. In Collins' book, The Origins and Empire of Ancient Israel, the Hebrew connection with early America is also documented along with illustrations of the Long Island Stone, the Decalogue Stone of New Mexico, the Decalogue Tablet of Ohio, and other evidence from ancient times. In addition to being a good read, Collins' books are profusely illustrated throughout.
