Indigenous means from the Earth. In researching efforts, if something in nature is titled "mysterious" or cannot be explained, then it most likely can be linked to Africa. When researching, become familiar with root words. Topics are disguised and may be hidden within the meaning of words. Pay strict attention to words used like Canaan, Phoenician, Hebrew, Semitic, Sumerians, Ancient Egyptian, Hamites--just to name a few. So it makes things easier if you look up every word using a dictionary or thesaurus. Using books for research is good--especially earlier books with a copyright from 100 - 150 years ago before terms and topics were changed or became outdated. The library catalog is helpful. Researchers recommend databases that link to scholarly journals. The truth hides behind the term "scholarly" or "peer reviewed." One scholar reinforces another scholar's beliefs or research that seems to be the same thing "warmed over" again--instilling fallacies. The following is a great example. Most researchers say during Biblical times Egypt was inhabited by the Caucasian Race. If you do the research, you will find that Egypt was not invaded by Rome until 300 BC. Also, Ethiopia and Egypt are used interchangeably in the Bible. Who were these Caucasians? Most Americans are familiar with the Biblical Creationist Theory and the following verse from Genesis.
"And the Lord FORMED MAN of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being." (Genesis 2:7) In Leviticus, the Bible talks about Leprosy turning the skin White. If a person's skin was already White, how could the disease of leprosy turn skin White? (Leviticus 13:3)
Books published in the 1800's give a clear view of the way things used to be before changing to comply with the political strategy and before PAPER GENOCIDE (William Plecker). "Four Letters On American History. First Letter", By Prof. Samuel Rafinesque to Dr. J.H. M'Culloh of Baltimore. Published by The 'Saturday Evening Post' on June 7, 1828.
The native American Negroes or Black Indians, have been seen in Brazil, Guyana, Caraccas, Popayan, Choco, North California, &c. Some of them, such as the Aroras or Caroras of Cumana, were Black, but with fine features and long hair, like the Jolofs and Gallas of Africa. Others in New California, latitude 32, called Esteros, are like the Hottentots, Numuquas, Tambukis, and many other Nigritian tribes, not black, but dark brown, yet complete Negroes, with large thick lips, broad flat noses, and with hair crisped or curly. The Negro features belong to the form of the head rather than the colour, since [there] are in Africa, Asia, and Polynesia, black, brown, yellow, olive, coppery, (and even white) Negroes.
The American Negroes of Quarenqua, in Choco, (the great level plain 900 miles long, 90 wide, separating the Andes of South America from the mountains of Panama) were black and with woolly heads in 1506. They are mentioned by Dangleria, and all the early accurate writers. The last two travelers who have seen these Negroes, are Stevenson, (20 years travels in South America, London, 1825,) and Mollien, travels in Columbia, Paris, 1824.
Stevenson says that the Indians of Mannabi, comprising the districts of Esmeraldas, Rioverde, and Atacamas, on the sea shore of Popayan, are all Zambos, and produced by a ship full of Negroes who came in the country before the Spaniards, killed the former inhabitants, kept the women and formed a mixed race. They are tall, of a blackish colour, with soft curley hair, large eyes, flat noses, thick lips, &c.; while the true Zambos, or modern offspring of Indians and Negroes are of a deep copper colour, with thick hair not curled, small eyes, sharp noses and good lips.
The field of physical anthropology is a little more than 100 years old. In 1804, the third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson sent Lewis and Clark on expeditions into Missouri and then an overland expedition to the Pacific. Lewis and Clark were accompanied by what history books have titled (enslaved African--Toussaint Charbonneauas) and his wife Sacajawea of the Snake Tribe. In 1805 it is recorded in Lapham's Quarterly (Lewis and Clark Journals)--In some accounts, it is recorded Lewis and Clark needed an interpreter to communicate with the Natives more than they needed somebody to carry their bags. Why did Lewis and Clark need a "Black servant slave" to communicate with the "Indians" (Natives)? The Snake Tribe (1890) looks very black in color if you look closely. The same story is akin to the story of the Egyptian baby Moses who was hidden by his mother Jochabed. She placed the baby in a basket and set him adrift on the Nile River so that he would not be one of the male children ordered by the Pharaoh slaughtered. Apparently baby Moses did not stand out or look any different from other inhabitants of the land. What this says is that the Hebrew and Egyptians must have looked alike because Moses was able to blend in, live in, and grow up in the Pharaoh's castle. Hey, and he was from the era of the 18 Egyptian Dynasty.
What the Lewis and Clark Expeditions revealed were a multitude of mounds in the Ohio Valley and adjoining regions that go hand-in-hand in similarity with mounds found in the Peruvian, Mexican, and Central American countries. The mounds turned out to be "Indian remains." Anthropologists of the day explained: (1) The American Nations, excepting the Polar tribes (Eskimo), were of one Race and one Species, but of two great Families (Toltecan and Barbarous), which resemble each other in physical, but differ in intellectual character”; and (2) “That cranial remains discovered in the Mounds, from Peru to Wisconsin belong to the same race (the Indian), and probably to the Toltecan (Olmec) Family.” Here is what Samuel Morton, J.C. Nott, George R. Gliddon, George Peabody and Jeffries Wyman, the scientists of the day found. The reports: In 1849 cranias from Gabon (A country of west-central Africa on the Atlantic Ocean. Previously inhabited by Pygmy and then Bantu-speaking peoples), Chimpanzees, bones of gorillas, bones of the Hottentot (name for the Khoikhoi people). Irregularities of the dental arch, skulls and long bones existed in the skeletons that were found. The anthropologists called them Fellahs--which is a peasant or cultivator of the soil among the Egyptians and Syrians of the day. The first thing to be asked--Chimpanzees in the United States? Wow!
Pygmies (diminutive people) can still be found in the Congo, South and Central America, Andaman Islands, New Guinea, and the Philippines. Skeletons of diminutive people have been found in Tennessee, Brazil, Tierra del Fuego and Tasmania. What it indicates is that pygmies constituted a major pan global population 75,000 years ago. Diminutive skulls have been found in Tennessee that were 3-4 feet tall and their cranium size was equivalent to a 7 year old child.
In the book The Natural and Aboriginal History of Tennessee, John Haywood describes "very large" bones in stone graves found in Williamson County, Tennessee in 1821. In White County Tennessee, an "ancient fortification" contained skeletons of gigantic stature averaging 7 feet in length. In 1921, large skeletons were found in the Humboldt Lake bed near Lovelock, Nevada. The skeletons measured 8-1/2 feet tall and appeared to have been wrapped in a gum-covered fabric similar to the ancient Egyptians. One skeleton was almost 10 feet Long. George W. Hill, dug out a skeleton in a mount of Ashland County, Ohio, in 1879 that was 9 feet eight inch skeleton near Brewersville, Indiana. In 1875 construction workers uncovered three giant skeletons with strands of reddish hair clinging to the skulls. Read the article "Red Hair" on this website. The ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Sumerians, Semites, Ugaritics and Canaanites used henna to dye the hair and skin red. Presently, African tribes exist with red hair. Also, Australian Aborigines have blonde and reddish hair along with many titled "Black people" in the United States (Indigenous people). A local doctor examined the remains and ascertained the skeletons were approximately 8 feet tall. In fact, giant skeletons were found throughout Ohio and New York--Morrow County, Ohio in 1880, Ashtabula County, Ohio, 1878, Berwerville, Indiana 1879, Zanesville, Ohio, Warren, Minnesota, 1883, Kanawha County, West Virginia, 1884, and Toledo, Ohio 1895. The second thing to be asked--What, mummies found buried in the United States!
Before Columbus arrived, Pyramids Appeared in the Americas!
An Irish tradition recounts that brutal, warlike Fomorians who were described as "blue-black giants" invaded Ireland and other British Isles in ships from Africa, and demanded children at Halloween time. They were finally driven north to the Hebrides Isles off northwest Scotland and to Tory Island off northwest Ireland in the deep Atlantic. From there, they preyed on the people of Ulster. The Formorian giants were supposedly endowed with double-rows of teeth. In the upper Ohio Native traditions tell of "giants," and early settlers claimed they were digging up (from Lake Erie-to the Ohio River) the skeletons of "giants" with massive skulls and double rows of teeth have been found throughout America.
