Who Bubba Mountain Lion thinks the Olmec heads represent
Fact 1 – There are people in western Polynesia, northwestern Mexico, southern Mexico, the Thlopthlokko Creek Tribal Town and the Snowbird Cherokees, who look EXACTLY like the “Olmec” heads. The key physical feature are the “feline” lips like that of a jaguar.
Fact 2 – There are four ethnic groups in the world, who used ornate wooden paddles to both make tattoos and stamp pottery . . . the Lapita-Proto-Polynesian Culture (1600 BC – 500 BC) . . .The Pre-Moche peoples of northern and eastern Peru (500 BC -100 AD) and all Panoan peoples of Satipo Province Peru . . . The ancestors of some branches of the Creek and Soque Indians in the Southeast. Lapita stamped pottery was very similar to the Napier style stamped pottery of northern and central Georgia. (600 AD – 900 AD).
Fact 3 – Panoan and Creek tattoos are very similar to Polynesian tatoos and virtually identical to Lapita tatoos.
Fact 4 – The last phase of Lapitaa pottery was not stamped, but rather consisted of extremely complex painted geometric motifs. Purepecha from Michoacan State on the Pacific Coast of Mexico is virtually identical to the last stage of Lapita pottery.
Fact 5 – Creek and Uchee descendants in eastern Georgia and western South Carolina are showing up in DNA tests to have substantial levels of Polneisian DNA markers.
Fact 6 – The Lapita men until recently wore mustaches and goatee beards like the Olmec figure in the middle above.
Fact 7 – Olmec sculptures portrayed individuals with several distinct physical features, suggesting that they were produced by a multi-ethnic society.
The following Youtube video is from a very popular TV series in New Zealand, which focuses on the culture of the Polynesian peoples.
