National Geo Video: Oldest known American skeleton found in Yucatan

National Geo Video:   Oldest known American skeleton found in Yucatan

An intact, 13,000 year old skeleton of a teenage girl was found in a cave in Northern Yucatan, Mexico in 2007.  These underwater videos are incredibly clear.  You will be amazed. There is one problem though.  This film is relatively new, but in 2008 a 13,600 year old skeleton with different ethnic characteristics was found by the same archaeologists in a nearby cave.  The viewers are never told that.

Comments on the website should be viewed with skepticism.   The attached text said that the skull had the same DNA as modern Native Americans.  Okay  which modern Native Americans?   Ninety to ninety-five percent of all indigenous Americans died in the European Holocaust.  No DNA test markers exist for many major indigenous ethnic groups in the Americas, such as the Muskogeans.

The text then says that this discovery proves that all Native Americans came over the Bering Strait land bridge at the same time.   No, it only means that ancestors of modern Native Americans lived in Yucatan 13,000 years ago.

The release of this film was in 2015, yet in 2008 a woman’s skeleton was found by the same archaeologists, which was 600 years older.  Her reconstruction is pictured above.  Those same archeologists made this statement  in 2009:

According to Arturo González, the director of the Desert Museum in Saltillo, Mexico, and the lead archaeologist of this project, the bone structure of the skeleton is more consistent with that of people from Southeast Asia than that of people from Northeast Asia. This similarity with Southern Asian skeletal types has called into question the timeline and geographic origin in the current theory of New World settlement by peoples from Northern Asia. This implies that people may not have come to America from North Asia through a land-bridge which is now underwater as previously thought.

In other words,  the very same archaeologist, quoted in this video, made an opposite statement several years before this video was created for National Geo TV.

These types of things  are what drives me up the wall about the current crop of archaeologists.  They present themselves as scientists, but in “educational films” aimed at the general public, will say totally illogical statements or do deceptive things without hesitation to make “their side” seem to be right.   What if no modern Native Americans came over the land bridge?   What if they came by boat or across the Arctic region from where they evolved in central Russia?  What if they came via many routes?  Do you get my gist?

Richard Thornton is a professional architect, city planner, author and museum exhibit designer-builder. He is today considered one of the nation’s leading experts on the Southeastern Indians. However, that was not always the case. While at Georgia Tech Richard was the first winner of the Barrett Fellowship, which enabled him to study Mesoamerican architecture and culture in Mexico under the auspices of the Institutio Nacional de Antropoligia e Historia. Dr. Roman Piňa-Chan, the famous archaeologist and director of the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, was his fellowship coordinator. For decades afterward, he lectured at universities and professional societies around the Southeast on Mesoamerican architecture, while knowing very little about his own Creek heritage. Then he was hired to carry out projects for the Muscogee-Creek Nation in Oklahoma. The rest is history. Richard is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the KVWETV (Coweta) Creek Tribe and a member of the Perdido Bay Creek Tribe. In 2009 he was the architect for Oklahoma’s Trail of Tears Memorial at Council Oak Park in Tulsa. He is the president of the Apalache Foundation, which is sponsoring research into the advanced indigenous societies of the Lower Southeast.

    Richard, I get your gist. Many people most likely arrived by boats from all 3 directions to this land… that we call “our land” on some accounts. Many of our elders stated we arrived by boats and not over some unproven Ice bridge” thesis”. P.s I will order the second book from your works this weekend. Thank You for sharing your wisdom.

    • Mark,

      Did you see what they did? Some faction with National Geo sponsored the film and left out the info about the other skeleton.

    • The Guide to the Nacoochee Valley is just a section of the Nacoochee Valley crossroads book. If you bought the $39 book, it would be a waste of money to buy the second one, unless you want to give it to someone.

    I like how a South American tribe is only 70 years off of the biblical account of how old the world is and there is 300 flood myths worldwide describing a family escaping the flood I descend from Moytoy of Tellico and also James Adair the author… early in life I believe in the Bible and then went 100% Evolution and Science and then saw videos and many evidences of a flooded world hence a young Earth we all came from Babel..

    “According to Arturo González, the director of the Desert Museum in Saltillo, Mexico, and the lead archaeologist of this project, the bone structure of the skeleton is more consistent with that of people from Southeast Asia than that of people from Northeast Asia.”

    Wonder if that’s why various similar Malayo-Polynesian (Austronesian) and Oceanic (including Papuan?) words are found in native languages / dialects on the American continent.
    Note: officially it is believed that Malayo-Polynesian languages are an offshoot of Formosan (Taiwanese / Austronesian) languages; Taiwanese aboriginals are believed to be the ancestors of the Polynesians. This would be in conflict with the 13,600 year timeline since Austronesians are believed only to have set sail towards and into Island Southeast Asia and the Pacific Ocean about 3,000 BCE (Before Common/Current Era).
    Either the timeline of the arrival of Island Southeast Asians (Malayo-Polynesians and Oceanians) on the American continent must be pushed back thousands of years or they were relatively latecomers (between 5,000 and 1,000 years ago)

    Richard, it sounds like you are implying that the academicians at our nation’s esteemed institutions might be less than honest with us…. lol! Be well Brother!

    • Robin, I had some great professors, both at Georgia Tech and Georgia State . . . but it is a different world now.
