One of the most amazing enigmas of history is the
existence of Whites in North America from at least the year 7,000 BC.
Fairly recently, skeletal remains have been found that show a clear
White racial trait, as opposed to the 'native American Indians'
(Amerinds), which are of a Mongolian stock. It is common knowledge that
there were White migrations to China (where Celts founded the Tocharian
civilization) and Japan (where they intermingled and created the
sub-class Ainu people), it would have been comparatively easy for
advanced groups of Whites to hop across the rest of Asia to the Beiring
Straits (which divides Asia and North America) and then into the North
American continent. That was how the Amerinds got to the American
continent as well. Given the time lines, it is possible that Whites
travelled to America before the Amerinds did. This much-supported fact
would diminish the special position given to American Indians that they
are the true 'Native Americans'. And for reasons of political
correctness, and the racial implications that would result, this fact
has been thoroughly suppressed.
The US federal government claimed in court 9/14/99 that the 1990
Native American Grave Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA)
"identifies" any human remains more than 507 years old
(pre-1492/Columbus) as "Native American" (Amerind), REGARDLESS of what
scientific study and DNA tests might reveal, and allowing Indians to
secretly bury them without any scientific study whatsoever.
The Spirit Cave Mummy
In 1940, a skeleton and a body, which luckily had become mummified
above the waist, were dug-up in a cave called the Spirit Cave in the
state of Nevada, USA. The mummified half of the body was well preserved:
its scalp, back, and hair were all intact. Its hair when exposed to sun
light was reddish-brown. Among other things, knives baskets and 67 other
pieces were found. The mummy was found lying on a blanket and wearing
The style of weaving used in the textiles is of an advanced form,
known as diamond-plaited matting. The complex textiles in Spirit Cave
demonstrate a degree of sophistication in material technology that
rivalled any on the planet at the time, and the preservation of these
textiles exceeds any of comparable age.
Woven bags and other artifacts were found close by. Also the remains
of two people who had been cremated.
The mummy became known as the
Spirit Cave Mummy, and was placed in the Nevada State Museum's storage
facility for decades. In 1994, the mummy was "rediscovered" and the
amazing truth revealed: tests showed that the corpse was 9,400 years
old; a 45-55 year old male; and, most importantly, not an ancestor of
any modern Indian (Amerind) tribe.
The age was determined by radiocarbon-dating tests on samples of bone
and hair as well as other things found.
The Spirit Cave mummy's White racial traits are undeniable: the mummy
has a long, small face and a large cranium, in sharp contrast to the
Mongoloid features of American Indians. The Spirit Cave Mummy represents
some form of White settlement or expedition into North America around
the year 7000 BC.
The Nevada State Museum went public with its findings on the Spirit
Cave Mummy in 1996. Immediately the issue sparked a fury, with the
American Indians demanding that the corpse be reburied in accordance
with tribal custom: falsely claiming the Spirit Cave Mummy as one of
The Amerind tribe involved, the Paiutes, laid claim to the corpse
under an American law, the Native American Graves Protection and
Repatriation Act of 1990, which allows for the return and reburial of
bodies of "Native Americans" [notice the preference to 'native
Americans', the reason they wanted the body reburied was that if it
weren't one of their own, then they would no longer enjoy the advantage
of being 'native Americans']. A long legal dispute arose over the issue
of to whom the corpse actually belongs. As part of the legal wrangling,
the Paiute have consistently refused to allow DNA testing of the corpse.
This is not the only case where American Indians have blocked the
study of obviously non-Amerind remains: another case, that of Kennewick
Man (detailed below) was similarly held up by Indian objections; and in
1993 another skeleton was found near Buhl in the state of Idaho. The
latter remains were some 10,600 years old, making them the oldest ever
found in North America. The skeleton was however turned over to local
Indians, the Shoshone-Bannock tribe, and reburied before any
comprehensive testing could be undertaken (convenient isn't it).
Using this advantage, the Amerinds have buried many unique
anthropological specimens. In Montana, naturally shed human hair was
found by an archaeologist, this prompted an Amerind claim. Although the
hair had not been buried in any kind of ritual, the US federal
government has prevented testing of the hair to commence.
The reasons for the American Indian sensitivity over the issue are
obvious: proof that Whites - even if only in small numbers - walked the
continent of North America before the Amerinds themselves would
undermine the latter's claim to be the original "Native Americans". For
the sake of political correctness, much valuable scientific data is
The Spirit cave mummy has not been the only
specimen uncovered, there have been many others all showing White racial
The Britons first theory
Evidence has been found that Europeans arrived over the frozen areas
of the North Atlantic at the southern edge of the Laurentide Ice Sheet
as long ago as 14,000 BC. The closest human settlements in Europe to
this northerly route would have been the occupants of what are now the
British Isles. The people occupying the British Isles at this time were
the White tribe called the Celts, several Celtic artifacts have been
found at various sites in North America!
This makes it possible that Ancient Britons were the first settlers
of the North American continent.
In the state of Washington in the north western US, on the 28th July
1996, another specimen was discovered. A well preserved skeleton was
found on the Columbia river in Kennewick (given rise to the name
Kennewick man). A near complete skeletal remains, complete with an
arrowhead lodged in the pelvic bone, was so obviously White, that local
police fought it to be that of a 19th century male killed by an Indian
arrowhead. After radiocarbon dating of a finger bone, it was revealed
that it was 9000 years old, putting whoever it was in America, in the
year 7200 BC. The White racial traits of the remains, like the Spirit
cave mummy, have been the focus of much controversy. And as with the
Spirit cave mummy, local Amerinds have filed complaints for possession
of the Kennewick remains. But this time, the scientists won the right to
forensically examine the remains, to be completed by the end of 1999.
Examination of Kennewick man's skull, immediately shows the White
origins that are unlike the Amerind Indians (Mongoloid) skull. Only the
Sternum is missing from the near complete skeleton. All the teeth were
intact at the time of death. The man was of a tall slender build.
Kennewick man bears no apparent characteristics of the classic
Mongolian stock to which the Amerinds originally belonged. Among its
features are a long broad nose, and high, round orbits. Many of
Kennewick man's characteristics are definitive of modern-day White
peoples. The Kennewick man also contains remains of advanced clothing
(When Columbus sailed across the sea he found the Indians with still
barely any cloths on).
In Nevada City, California, USA, the Asatru Folk Assembly (AFA), a
pre-Christian religious organisation that honours its ancient European
ancestors, chose to have a separate hearing on its demands for DNA tests
on the 9,300-year-old skeleton found in 1996 in Kennewick, Washington.
Federal Judge John Jelderks of Oregon's US District Court had asked
the European tribal group to join in a hearing held in Portland on Sept.
14, where attorneys for anthropologists argued for the right to study
Kennewick Man, initially identified by anthropologists as
'Caucasoid', is one of oldest, most complete skeletons ever found in
North America. Shortly after his discovery, carbon dating determined he
had lived 9,300 years ago, calling into question current theories on
prehistoric settlers of North America.
"While we share the belief that the government has no right to keep
anthropologists from studying the Kennewick Man, we continue to seek
mitochondrial DNA testing to determine his genetic links to our European
ancestors," says Stephen McNallen, who heads the California-based Asatru
"We believe we have the right to know if Kennewick Man is our ancient
relative and, if so, to see his remains are passed on to his people for
culturally sensitive and appropriate handling," he added.
Judge Jelderks said he would delay setting a hearing date on the
AFA's motion, filed on September 7, until he issues a ruling on the
scientists' requests later this month.
McNallen's group has hired Emory University's Dr. Michael D. Brown, a
specialist in the genetics of ancient human populations, as an expert
witness in their bid to force the government to allow mitochondrial DNA
testing, which should reveal Kennewick Man's link to modern peoples
within 30 days.
The government has claimed the 1990 Native American Graves Protection
and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) automatically identifies as "Native
American" (Amerind) any inhabitants of America that pre-date Columbus'
arrival in 1492.
Citing that law, the US Army Corps of Engineers announced in 1996 it
would turn Kennewick Man over to American Indian tribes for secret
burial without further study, prompting both the scientists and the
Asatru Folk Assembly to file suits for the right to study the remains.
The Department of the Interior now has the remains.
For three years, the AFA's and scientist's lawsuits have languished
due to governmental delays. At their September 14 hearing, scientists
called the delays "highly unreasonable," and asked the court to find
they constituted a de facto denial by the government of the scientists'
request to study the bones. Such a finding would allow the scientists to
pursue other legal remedies, including a suit claiming NAGPRA is
Federal attorney Allison Rumsey, representing the government at the
hearing, argued that there is "no Constitutional right to study the
bones," insisting that Kennewick Man is "government property." Portland
attorney Paula A. Barran, who represents the scientists in the suit,
challenged the federal government's claim to the bones asking "Who is
the government? The people. We are the government." (We don't think so!)
During the hearing, Judge Jelderks questioned the government's claim
that NAGPRA covered "ancient remains," noting that his own review of the
Congressional Record revealed no such intent when the bill was debated.
He noted that if the government decides NAGPRA justifies American Indian
ownership of all human remains that are more than 507 years old,
refusing all requests to study such remains, the scientists in the
Kennewick Man suit could litigate the constitutionality of that law.
Questioning the government's motives for repeating ageing tests,
Judge Jelderks asked the department's chief archaeologist Frank
McManamon if the government would still identify Kennewick Man as
"Native American" if the tests found Kennewick Man to be one million
years old, and even if he shared virtually no features consistent with
modern-day Native Americans. Judge Jelderks also asked if the government
believed earlier tests that found the remains to be 9,300 years old
could have been off by a factor of 20 times. Rumsey replied that "Native
American" means "an indigenous person."
AFA leader Stephen McNallen later noted that NAGPRA's impact upon
pre-Columbus inhabitants of North America reflect a disturbing "Indians
Rumsey and McManamon confirmed the Department of the Interior's plans
to study Kennewick Man's "cultural affiliations" with American Indian
tribes, a process she said could take an additional two years. NAGPRA
allows individuals or tribes to claim remains if they can show cultural
On September 8, the Department of the Interior took more bone samples
for carbon dating from Kennewick Man, whose remains are now at Burke
Museum in Seattle. Barran told the court that scientists found the
sample size was 120 times greater than the amount necessary for
carbon-14 tests, destroying forever-key skeletal remains. She noted that
the tibia, or shin bone, used for the government's sample, was the only
remaining bone appropriate for critical diagnostic tests. The tibia
could also have revealed Kennewick Man had been purposefully buried or
suffered accidental postmortem trauma.
Barran stated that since the femur (leg) bones -- also used to
identify skeletal characteristics -- had disappeared while in the
federal government's possession, preservation of the tibia should have
been a priority. Requests for high-resolution photography of the tibia
prior to sampling, possibly of value for diagnostic study, were ignored
by the government.
Barran also noted that the government destroyed the site of Kennewick
Man's discovery by dropping 500 tons of dirt and rock on it, calling the
totality of the government's actions "beyond negligent." (Don't the
truth hurt!) After hearing arguments from federal attorneys and lawyers
representing the scientists, Judge Jelderks said that within 10 days, he
would set a firm deadline ordering governmental agencies to answer the
scientists' request to examine Kennewick Man. The Judge affirmed that
the plaintiffs "have the right to have their claims heard within five to
10 years," which he said could be the length of time cases related to
Kennewick Man's remains are in court.
"Regardless of the Court's decision on the scientists' right to study
Kennewick Man's remains, the Asatru Folk Assembly will fight vigorously
to see that state-of-the-art genetic tests -- not an arbitrary and
possibly unconstitutional federal law -- define his relationship to
modern man," says McNallen. McNallen also announced plans to seek
experts who will study possible cultural affiliations of Kennewick Man
to early European peoples -- including the Solutrean culture of ancient
In response to the Asatru Folk Assembly's motion demanding DNA
testing of the remains, Interior Department spokeswoman Stephanie Hanna
last week said there is no chance Kennewick Man is a 9,300-year-old
European. Hanna insisted that any DNA testing would be intended to link
the skeleton to present-day Native tribes.
Fork Rock Cave
In the state of Oregon there is a cave known as the Fork Rock Cave
which has been the centre of a number of significant non-biological
finds. In 1938, seventy pairs of sandals made of sagebrush were
discovered - radio-carbon dating technology dated the sandals at 9000
years old! Charcoal was also found with a radio-carbon date indicating
it was 13,200 years old! 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 the Kennewick Man and
his peers), all of which indicated highly skilled workers. These differ
vastly from Indian artifacts both in ancient North America and in modern
Indian findings. In fact they were very similar to the technology of
European Whites at the time.
A cave near Lovelock, Nevada, has produced several sets of mummies,
bones, and artifacts buried under several layers of bat excrement: the
desiccated bodies belonged to a very tall people - with red hair. Once
again, only White Nordics fit the bill with regard to stature and hair
In fact, red haired enemies feature in local Indian legends - or what
where thought legends until the discovery of the Lovelock mummies. The
locals Indians are the Paiutes, the same ones who object to the
scientific investigation of the Spirit Cave Mummy. According to these
legends, the red haired enemies centred on these tall troublemakers whom
they called the "Si-Te-Cah."
Significantly, the name Si-Te-Cah means "tule eaters" - tule being
the fibrous reed which is the base material of the mats in which the
Spirit Cave Mummy was buried. Tule is no longer found in the region and
was very likely imported along with the people who used it.
According to the Paiute, the red haired peoples were warlike, and a
number of the Indian tribes joined together in a long war against them.
According to the Indian legend - and there is of course no guarantee
that it is completely accurate - after a long struggle, a coalition of
Indian tribes trapped the remaining Si-Te-Cah in what is now called
Lovelock Cave. When they refused to come out, the Indians piled brush
before the cave mouth and set it aflame. The Si-Te-Cah were wiped out.
Sarah Winnemucca Hopkins, daughter of Paiute Chief Winnemucca,
related many stories about the Si-Te-Cah in her book "Life Among the
Paiutes." On page 75, she relates:
"My people say that the tribe we exterminated had reddish hair. I
have some of their hair, which has been handed down from father to son.
I have a dress which has been in our family a great many years, trimmed
with the reddish hair. I am going to wear it some time when I lecture.
It is called a mourning dress, and no one has such a dress but my
These Indians are keeping hair from our ancestors, the ancestors they
exterminated, as souvenirs! Mind you, our Colonists that founded New
England seem to have repaid the compliment, several times over!
1931, further skeletons were discovered in the Humboldt Lake bed. Eight
years later, a mystery skeleton was unearthed on a ranch in the region.
In each case, the skeletons were exceptionally tall - much taller than
the surrounding Amerinds.
There is a small display on the Si-Te-Cah
in the Lovelock museum today, but it ignores the evidence which
indicates that the Si-Te-Cah were not Amerinds. The Nevada State
Historical Society also has some artifacts from the cave.
Wizards Beach Man
Yet another non-Amerind skeleton has been found at a place called
Pyramid Lake, Nevada. The remains are known as Wizards Beach Man. This
skeleton has been dated as being 9225 years old. Once again the skull
shape is distinctly "long" (that is, European) and very different to the
Mongoloid shape of original Amerind racial types (so far do you still
think that Amerinds were the original 'Native Americans').
Lineage X - The Final Link Shown By Genetic Tracking
Similarities between the non-Mongoloid body traits of ancient
skeletal remains in North America and recent genetic studies support a
link of Kennewick Man with ancient White peoples. The genetic findings
were announced in 1998 by Theodore Schurr, a molecular anthropologist
from Emory University in Atlanta, at a meeting of the American
Association of Physical Anthropologists in Salt Lake City.
The new data implies that ancient European peoples who reached North
America after first, presumably, migrating through Asia, still retained
a distinct genetic makeup which then passed into New World populations
through later physical mingling.
According to these Lineage X
findings, White populations from Europe were most likely amongst the
North American continent's earliest settlers.
The "Lineage X" markers and possible source populations have been
studied by Emory researchers Michael Brown and Douglas Wallace, and
Antonio Torroni of the University of Rome and Hans-Jurgen Bandelt of the
University of Hamburg. Lineage X, a site of genetic variation, is found
in mitochondrial DNA (MtDNA) and thus is passed only through the
It is one of five markers or haplogroups in MtDNA now identified in
Native Americans, of which the other four (A-D) are shared by Asians and
Amerinds, in accordance with widely accepted theories of their ancient
links. The fifth genetic marker, Lineage X, occurs at low frequencies in
both modern and ancient remains of Native Americans and in some European
and Near Eastern groups including Italians, Spaniards, Finns, Turks, and
Bulgarians. Crucially, Lineage X does not occur in any Asian population,
including those of Tibet, Mongolia, Southeast Asia, or Northeast Asia.
Brown and his co-workers had expected to find it in Asia - like the
other four Native American markers, and are now pressed to account for
the gap in their data. The only possible scenario that fits well with
the Kennewick Man finding is that a group of Whites migrated from Europe
to North America before 9000 years ago, and mixed with Amerind stocks to
cause this fifth genetic marker to appear in North America.
There is therefore more than enough physical skeletal evidence of an
early White settlement in North America - and the next logical question
is if they left any buildings or structures. Predictably, they did: but
although these structures have been long since known, news of their
existence has been sidelined or even suppressed for the sake of the
political issues mentioned earlier.
The most dramatic of the early structures on the North American
continent is to be found at a site called "Mystery Hill", located near
the town of Salem, in the present day American state of New Hampshire.
There, a 30 acre Megalith site - in many respects identical to those
found in Western Europe, and equally as old - has been open to the
public since 1958.
While diggings at the "America's Stonehenge" site has produced
artifacts from most time periods, the most significant find at the site
has been a Celtic (Indo-European) etching on a rock: a Celtic sun
symbol, which unquestionably puts Whites at the site (knowing that the
Indo-Aryans that migrated to Asia but settled in northern India
worshipped the sun, the symbol of that sun being known as the Swastika).
Iron Working Sites in America
Archeologists and historians are of the unanimous opinion that the
Red Indians did not have smelting or iron casting technology or ability
- yet in a number of areas in North America, remains of iron smelting
furnaces have been found, all following Indo-European designs, the likes
of which had only been found in Europe. The ability to work iron was the
one of the single biggest advances which originated with the
The most famous of these iron furnaces is to be found on Spruce Hill,
a flat top mountain in the Scioto Valley in south central Ohio. The
collapsed walls of a surrounding fort and other buildings - some 200,000
tons of cut rock - are still to be seen on the site, which was first
fully explored by Arlington Mallery in 1948, and detailed in his book
"The Rediscovery of Lost America".
Mallery went on to discover 14
other iron working sites, which clearly were foreign to the Red Indians,
in the Deer Creek Valley, about ten miles from Spruce Hill. A full
record of his work was filed with the Smithsonian Institution of
American Ethnology, and his work was later published by one of his
associates, Mary Roberts Harrison, in the book mentioned above.
makes the iron smelting sites more compelling is the fact that they are
identical to Indo-European sites found in Europe itself: raising the
distinct likelihood that at some stage of pre-history, Indo-Europeans
managed to sail the divide between Europe and North America.
Most likely the route taken would have followed the far north, from
Scandinavia to Greenland, and then possibly hugging the ice pack coast
down into the north eastern seaboard of the North American continent.
More research is however, crucial, before any definite statements can be
made on the issue: nonetheless. all initial indications point to a lost
great White migration to North America as well.
Possible Atlantic crossings
Two eminent archeologists say that North America's first inhabitants
may have been from Europe's Iberian Peninsula. This view is in contrast
to the theory discussed elsewhere in this article that the first
settlers came across a land Bridge from Asia some 13,500 years ago
establishing a culture called "Clovis". The country's first inhabitants
may have crossed the Atlantic some 18,000 years ago from the area which
is now present day Spain, Portugal, and southwestern France. According
to Dennis Stanford and Bruce Bradley, these pre-modern explorers called
Solutreans are believed to have settled the Eastern Seaboard and over
the next six mellenia their culture spread as far as the American
deserts, the Canadian tundra, and perhaps even into South America. The
researchers say the Solutreans may not have been the only
paleo-explorers to reach the Western Hemisphere. Archaeological sites
have been discovered in Pennsylvania, Virginia, South Carolina, as well
as Monte Verde, Chile which had been settled 12,500 to 16,0000 B.C (When
the first (?) Europeans went to South America in the 1500's, the
indigenous people fought that they were the same people who built their
ancient civilisation, they described them as a divine race of bearded
Whites). The projectile points and other artifacts found at these sites
are identical to those found on the other side of the Atlantic.
The Disappearance of the First Whites In America
The case for Whites in pre-Amerind North America therefore appears
credible: all that must be answered is what happened to them. The
evidence indicates that the first Whites in America were either killed
in open warfare with Amerinds (who may have arrived simultaneously or
afterwards); and that the remaining Whites were absorbed into what
became the numerically dominant Amerind groupings. The existence of the
Lineage X gene string supports the latter.
The first Whites in America therefore disappeared, along with their
culture, through a process of racial integration, leaving behind only
tantalising clues such as skeletons and other artifacts as evidence of
their existence. For politically correct reasons these matters would
never receive full-scale adoption in school text-books or the
