Lost White America

By: Paul Golding

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 shoes.

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 their own!!!

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 being suppressed.
The Spirit cave mummy has not been the only specimen uncovered, there have been many others all showing White racial traits.

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.

Kennewick Man

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 the skeleton.

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 Folk Assembly.

"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 unconstitutional.

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 only" policy.

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 affiliation.

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 Europe.

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.

The Si-Te-Cah

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 color.

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 family."

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!
In 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 maternal line.

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.

"America's Stonehenge"

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 Indo-Europeans.

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.
What 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 curriculum.
