The Ainu tribe wear traditional native clothing similar to the embroidered patterns of the Pacific Northwest in the totem pole areas.
There are fewer paleo-skeletons from East Asia than there are from America where they are rare. These Asian fossils attest that "the modern morphology of North Asians and most American Indians did not exist in East Asia at the time of the first Americans…the so-called classic Mongoloid morphology migrated to or developed in that region relatively recently". "The Paleo-Americans who had come first had been later replaced by the Ceno-Americans, who like NE Asians had large faces and round braincases." (These quotes are from "Ancient Encounters" by James C. Chatters 2001). The differences between the skull types are very distinct.
The facial model molded onto a cast of the Kennewick Man skull began with the reconstructed musculature of the face. An outer layer like the skin of the face later covered it. This resulted in the famous "Captain Picard" sculpture of the face of Kennewick Man. Professor Vine Deloria compared the likeness to Black Hawk, the great War Chief of the Sauk and Fox tribes. The media painted their own versions, which gave Kennewick Man a cave-man look, but the original model does not appear this way, he looks more intelligent.
In recent years a beautiful cache of Clovis spear points was discovered containing points fashioned out of many types of colorful stone. These blades seem to be for ceremonial rather than hunting purposes and show an appreciation for natural beauty by someone of high intelligence.
For now, the scientists have been allowed further study of the bones while the five tribes, the Umatilla, the Yakima, the Nez Perce, the Wanapum, and the Colville compete for the rights to his reburial. These tribes reside near the Cascade Mountains and the Snake and Columbia Rivers. Kennewick, Washington is in southern Washington two-thirds across the state from the Pacific coast.
Is there any tradition of an ancient Caucasian race residing in North America and an Australian Aboriginal type of race living in South America? Where did the Native and Asian cranial - facial type originate? Did these inhabitants people the islands of the Pacific? It is wise to follow the ocean currents to discover the answers to these questions. In the Rocky Mountains of the American West there are such historical traditions.
