Did you take a close look at the Zuni petroglyphs?
The PBS team, which produced this magnificent series, “Native America,” did not notice something . . . but of course, they don’t have the smarts of we-uns Southeastern Natives. LOL Are you sitting down? Many, if not most of the Zuni sacred symbols can be found on Scandinavian Bronze petroglyph sites and the Track Rock Gap petroglyphs in Georgia. Now, the sacred symbols do not include portrayals of animals and people, but when those Zuni elders sat down at Chaco Canyon for a ceremony, the leader drew in the sand this symbol, which appears on the Nyköping Petroglyphs on the Baltic Coast of Sweden and has been firmly dated to 2000 BC. I was astounded. This sacred symbol also appears several times on the Track Rock Petroglyphs in the Georgia Mountains and became the Maya glyph for “High King.” It was the first Maya glyph to be translated by archaeologist David Stuart.
The spiral glyph that dominates Zuni religion today is the same symbol used in Bronze Age Europe and the Apalache of Georgia for the sun goddess, Amana. In some European cultures, she was just known as the “Spiral Goddess.”
The current revised theory that says all Native Americans came across the Bering Strait is hogwash. All of the Pacific Coast tribes in Canada and the NW United States state that their ancestors CROSSED the Pacific by boat. The Uchee say that their ancestors CROSSED the Atlantic by boat. The Algonquians use several key words, which mean the same in Archaic Irish. There were definitely Australoids in the Amazon Basin of South America before there were AmerIndians. The people, living in the southern tip of South America have been found to be Australoid . . . so the statement in the program, which says, “All Native Americans are descended from a population that were trapped in Beringea for awhile” is absolutely false.
Yes, these peoples later mixed some with those, who came across from NE Siberia, but it appears that geneticists are looking only for certain Asiatic DNA test markers, associated with the ancestors of American Indians in Siberia, and discounting others, which they assume are later admixtures. Whenever a TV documentary makes a profound statement about American DNA, keep in mind that there are NO DNA test markers for most of the tribes in the United States, plus there are none for many other tribes in South America.
