Now you know why De Soto observed mustaches and beards in Georgia!
When the De Soto Expedition entered the region that is now considered the Creek Homeland, he immediately observed that the towns were much larger and formally planned . . . the architecture was much more sophisticated . . . the men were at least a foot taller than the Spaniards . . . and all the adult men wore mustaches. The leaders wore beards. The De Soto Chronicles stated that the king of Ocute (Okvte in Itsate Creek) had a beard that reached his belly button. Yet . . . like other indigenous peoples in the Americas, these Uchees and Proto-Creeks had very little, if any, body hair.
Remember Okvte means “Water People.” This large powerful province on the Oconee River in Northeast Georgia was a Uchee Province with probably a mixed Uchee-Itza Maya-Muskogean elite.
During the past 15 years, I have had several “intensive” discussions with Native Americans from other parts of the United States, concerning these statements. They said that it was impossible for full-blooded Native Americans to have mustaches and beards. The Spanish chroniclers fabricated the description to please the King of Spain. Actually, the leaders of both the Northwest Pacific Coast tribes and the Aztecs wore mustaches and goatees . . . but there is no mention of beards going down to the belly button.
What we are saying in these series of articles is that the Uchees and the Proto-Creeks were NEVER full-blooded Siberian Asians, like most other tribes in North America. We also carry ancient DNA from northern Europe and western Asia. Any DNA lab that does not take this genetic fact into consideration, will greatly underestimate your indigenous American ancestry.
There is no way that numerous, abstract glyphs can simultaneously appear on a 4,000 year old rock face in Nyköping, Sweden and on the Track Rock petroglyphs in the Georgia Mountains, unless humans carried that sophisticated concept with them. There is no way that the complex symbol for a High King can be found at Bronze Age sites throughout southern Scandinavia, the Creek Homeland and the Maya Homeland unless humans brought that concept with them. As Sherlock Holmes often stated, “Dr. Watson . . . it is intuitively obvious!“
Did these symbols first exist in North America and then were transported to Scandinavia? . . . or vice-versa? That is a question, which has not been answered.
Taks så mycket . . . That’s mvto in Swedish.
