You will see claims here and there about who were the first Americans. I didn't bother looking into it until they keep bring it up over and over .

Build that continental wall 10 ft higher!



Yeah they keep pushing back the date when they "think" humans spread out every few years. There are still tons of odd structures that were built by humans and completely forgotten.

It's called the scientific method. You should look it up some day.

Trump already knows what would happen if he did that.

Who came first is of no consequence, except bragging rights. We are where we are now, what is important is what you are doing now and planning for the future. You cannot undue the past, contrary to what idiots say, you can only make change in the present that will effect the future.

And there is Kennewick Man from Washington state, from pre-Polynesian stock, possibly Ainu.

We are technically all immigrants if you think hard enough. We all originated from Africa.

I notice we keep pushing when real Americans got here
Friendly reminder native Americans deserve respect

Seriously though I human colonization is strange like Europeans colonized almost nothing in terms of Terra fima and no one inhabited New Zealand until the 1300s. Weirdest thing imo we got to Spain and then stopped Portugal wasn't colonized for centuries. Long after we crossed the bridge

That's the current accepted theory. There's been recent discoveries that suggest otherwise though.

i guess a certain group will not shut up about being first now...

is it just me or both look pretty similar ?

also, you can tell which skin color or hair style form the bones ?

Pictured is the 3D facial reconstruction of Apiuna the African Austro-Melanesian skull. The relic was discovered deep inside a cave during an archaeological dig in Lagoa Santa, south east Brazil, some 50 years ago


This shows the stages of facial reconstruction of Diarum, the Siberian Asian man's skull. The Siberian Asian whose face was unveiled by Moraes in May this year, probably trekked across in the second flow

I wonder what the "final" concept will wind up being. Every day that passes is a day further removed from our past. Why just look what ISIS did to precious old monuments. Exploring our past is to explore ourselves, so i hope these findings continue.

I dig some research into this: the facial structure of the Kennewick Man do not resemble the comtemporary Native Americans likely because he retain some old traits that are unsuitable in agirculture.

I agree with your last sentence especially when new discoveries can overturn old beliefs that are accpeted without doubt.
