Native American Legends and DNA
The legend of the ruby-eyed serpent idol
Native American legends cannot normally be accepted as completely factual history. Too many mouths have passed these stories from generation to generation. However, a Cherokee legend and the “Migration Legend of the Creek Indians” provide important information that can assist researchers in a particularly controversial archaeological site.
DNA scientists claim that Cherokees are from the Middle East
DNA Consulting Inc. is near completion of a comprehensive genetic study of the North Carolina Cherokee Reservation. The project’s original goal was to finally create a DNA test marker for the Cherokees. However, its shocking conclusion is that the Cherokees are a Middle Eastern – North African population. Their primary ancestors were the Iberian Sephardic Jews, who colonized the Southern Highlands in the 1600s. The discovery will invalidate almost everything that North Carolina archaeologists have written about settlement sites in the western part of that state, dating before the late 1600s.
