Why is ancient history being censured in the Americas?
In the Americas, New Zealand, Australia and Pacific Basin there is a concerted effort to conceal archaeological discoveries that conflict with orthodoxies created in the late 20th century. Look how difficult it has been for those archaeologists, who have found proof that “Clovis People” were not the first humans in America, to be heard in professional journals and get their message across to the public.
Keep in mind that the original name that the Spanish conquistadors called the ancestors of the Creek Indians in Georgia and the indigenous peoples at the southern tip of Argentina was “Los Indios Gigantes” . . . Giant Indians. Stone bolo balls are endemic in the archaeological sites of northern Alabama and Georgia. Why are these facts being concealed?
Some laymen, interviewed in the New Zealand documentary on the indigenous peoples of their islands, got the “chicken and egg situation” backward. The original chickens in New Zealand are descended from Peruvian indigenous chickens, not vice versa. However, the chickens raised by most Polynesians elsewhere in the Pacific are not closely related to Peruvian chickens. Nevertheless, the Maori word for sweet potato, kamera, is the western Peruvian word for sweet potato. Southern Arawaks in South America and the Creeks in the Southeastern United States, use the word, aho, for sweet potato.
Toward the end of the video on the indigenous peoples of New Zealand, a very frustrated New Zealand archaeologist stated, “For reasons that we don’t understand, about thirty years ago the academicians here in New Zealand created a new version of our past. Almost immediately, government bureaucrats jumped into the process and began removing books from the library shelves. When I found a cemetery with hundreds of ancient Indo-European skeletons, the museum in Wellington (capital of New Zealand) seized all of the skeletons and artifacts, placed them in sealed boxes and obtained a court order that the boxes not be opened until 2063.”
The documentary film then flashed onto the court order. The archaeologist was telling the truth.
Curious as to what actually was going on in New Zealand, I watched several other independent documentary films from New Zealand. There is clearly something strange going on Down Under. A team of archaeologists and geneticists didn’t report their discovery of an ancient town built of fieldstone in a remote part of New Zealand until they had time to radiocarbon date the settlement and study the DNA of it human remains. The town dated from around 200 BC and the skeletons were Indo-Europeans, carrying the genes for red hair, blue or gray eyes and light pigmentation.
The same pattern of DNA test markers are concentrated in Peru and certain areas of western Mexico. They have been traced back to the Indus River Valley civilization of Harare. In other words, one of the first civilizations was created by red-haired, light-skinned, blue or gray eyed people, who were NOT the same people, who occupy Europe now. They were also not the same people, who occupy the Middle East and India now. In fact, ancient scripts in India record a great war in which the current people of India killed or drove out the indigenous people of the Indus Valley.
Beneath the stone town was a more primitive village that dated back to around 2300 BC . . . the same time period when there was a great flood in Ireland, which caused the mass exodus of its original inhabitants. Nearby are petroglyphs, megaliths and ceremonial basins in boulders identical to what we find in North Georgia and are also found in northwestern South America and Ireland.
After the archaeologists finally reported their discovery of the ancient fieldstone town, their skeletons and artifacts were also seized by the museum in Wellington and also placed in sealed boxes that could not be legally opened until 2063.
Latin American archaeologists only face external pressures
About three years ago, I was on the cast of a documentary film that included professionals from North America, South America and Europe. It was an analysis of the terrace and mound complexes in North Georgia. The approach was much more comprehensive and technically accurate than the History Channel program on “The Mayas in Georgia.”
I had some very interesting conversations with the Latin American anthropologists during meals and in between filming sessions. Our guests from Canada, Europe and Latin America were astonished that the State of Georgia had not made the Track Rock Terrace Complex and the nearby Nacoochee Valley into international tourist attractions. I told them the whole sordid story about how drug dealers did not want tourism in Union County . . . a cell of Neo-Nazi’s lived in a compound near the Kenimer Mound and Nacoochee Terrace Complex . . . local US Forest Service bureaucrats were in the pockets of organized crime . . . and the Georgia archaeologists wanted to appear to be omniscient gods, when in fact they didn’t know diddlysquat about the Native American cultural history in our region. All parties made sure that the public only was and is exposed to a highly censured version of the present and the past. Now those parties involved are only interested in saving face.
As if on cue, a bleached blond skinhead, appeared while we were filming on county land in the Nacoochee Valley and ordered us to leave or he would call the US Forest Service and have us arrested! After then, the international visitors listened carefully to what I said. Some of them were actually officials of the United Nations.
The Latin Americans said that they are aware of the censorship of archaeologists and historians in North America, plus several other parts of the world, but are not being harassed within their own countries. Their governments view this censorship as another example of “Yankee Imperialism” and so encourage their intellectuals to be independent in all matters except criticism of their own governments. LOL However, their academicians often find it very difficult for their perspectives and scientific studies to be presented in international conferences or in publications originating in the United States.
Latin American scientists have found extensive evidence of the movements of peoples, crops and ideas back and forth across the Americas. This is not a theory. It is scientific fact. However, Gringo academicians have derogatorily labeled these findings “The Diffusion Theory” and labeled Latin American scientists “diffusionists” in the same sense as if they were Marxists. I asked them how did Gringo academicians explain the presence of Peruvian beans, Honduran tobacco and Mexican corn in Illinois? The South Americans laughed, threw up their hands and rolled their eyes.
We didn’t discuss chickens at the dinner table at the German restaurant in Helen, GA . . . only the sausages . . . but it is a good example of what these Latin American scholars are complaining about. For 400 years Peruvian intellectuals have said that the chickens raised by its indigenous peoples were also indigenous. For 250 years, British and North American academicians have insisted that all chickens in the Americas came from Europe . . . even when Peruvian chickens were bred into Italian chickens during the 1800s to increase their size.
When North American and European archaeologists started coming to the Andes, they ignored any art that portrayed chickens. It was assumed that the art post-dated the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors. There are all sorts of Pre-Hispanic artistic portrayals of chickens in South America. You will never see them in an archaeology book published in the United States. You will also seldom see mentioned that there were indigenous peoples in Georgia, Peru and Argentina, who averaged over a foot taller than Europeans. Native Americans are invariably portrayed as being shorter than Europeans. The only exception are sketches and water colors by Jacques le Moyne at Fort Caroline and a German artist, who journeyed to the young colony of Georgia in the 1730s.
When chicken bones were found at village sites on the coast of Peru, the Gringo archaeologists announced that this was proof that Polynesians had visited and probably settled the Americas. At the time, Peruvian scientists said , “Oh no. We had chickens long before them. They were the most important source of protein for our Indios. ” The Gringo archaeologists ignored them as did the North American news media.
When PBS, National Geo, the History Channel and BBC filmed expensive documentaries about the Polynesians, who supposedly settled Peru, Peruvian scientists told them the same thing. Their statements were not shown on the films. When genetic testing, both in Peru and at the University of Michigan, proved that the chicken bones in the seaside caves were not from Polynesia and Peruvian chickens were not descended from Polynesian chickens, the public was not told this because it would negate the expensive TV documentaries.
It seems as if, there is a Grand High Council of Muckity-Mucks that decides what the public believes is history and what is to be concealed. We will have to call that a “conspiracy theory” for the United States, but it is definitely a fact in New Zealand.
