'Avatar' also story of deep DNA within many Americansby Steve Hammons
Posted: 17:18 February 14, 2010
The blockbuster movie "Avatar" has triggered interesting discussions and perceptions by a wide range of observers and moviegoers.
However, have we missed some aspects of particularly relevant elements of the film?
There are millions of Americans who carry Native American Indian DNA with them. Yet, many of these people may consider themselves "white," "black" or "brown."
Might they also now be going through a transformation similar to some of the characters in "Avatar?"
James Cameron expands our views of other possibly-inhabited worlds and enhances our perspectives on planet Earth. In the movie, we see a people, the Na’vi, who are similar to Native American Indians.
Three of the main characters, particularly the character Jake Sully (played by Sam Worthington), move their consciousness from their human bodies to hybrid, combined-DNA bodies similar to the Na’vi.
As they visit and live with the Na’vi, they come to appreciate and understand this unique culture, and eventually choose to help them defend their land.
Is Jake’s experience of living within a combined-DNA body similar to the many Americans who have mixed-ethnicity backgrounds – especially those with Native American Indians in their family trees?
WIDESPREAD CHEROKEE DNA
An especially relevant example of this situation is the history of the intermingling of Cherokee and early English, Scottish and Scots-Irish trappers, hunters and explorers in the Appalachian Mountain region, primarily during the 1700s.
The Cherokee culture and civilization had thrived for thousands of years in that mountain area that we now call northern Georgia and Alabama, up through North Carolina, Tennessee and the surrounding region.
The matriarchal society of the Cherokee allowed significant independence and freedom for women. And when lonely European men first made their way into Cherokee lands in the early 1700s, Cherokee women were free to develop relationships with them. Nature took its course and babies of mixed ethnicity were born.
As the decades passed, this mixing of ethnic groups present in the Appalachian region continued. By 1800, there were large numbers of mixed-ethnicity people living there.
