Smithsonian Scientist Claims Native American Skulls Identical to Egyptians

Smithsonian Scientist Claims Native American Skulls Identical to Egyptians

Guanches of the Canary Islands were a Caucasian People, who according the Smithsonian spread to North and South America

Professor Retzius, in his Smithsonian Report, considers that the primitive dolichocephalæ of America are nearly related to the Guanches of the Canary Islands, and to the population on the Atlantic seaboard of Africa, which Latham comprises under the name of an Egyptian-Atlantidæ. The same form of the skull is found in the Canary Islands off the African coast and the Carib Islands off the American coast, while the color of the skin in both is that of a reddish-brown.
     The ancient Egyptians depicted themselves as red men of much the same complexion as exists to-day among some tribes of American Indians.
        "The ancient Peruvians," says Short, "appear from numerous examples of hair found in their tombs to have been an auburn-haired race."

       A remarkable fact about the American Indians, and one which is a standing puzzle to ethnologists, is the wide range of colour and complexion to be found among them. From the white tint of the Menominee, Dakota, Mandan and Zuni tribes, many of whom have auburn hair and blue eyes, to the almost negro blackness of the Karos of Kansas and the now extinct tribes of California, the Indian races run through every shade of red-brown, copper, olive, cinnamon, and bronze. (See Short's North Americans of Antiquity, Winchell's Pre-Adamites, and Catlin's Indians of North America; see also Atlantis, by Ignatius Donnelly who has collected a great mass of evidence under this and other heads.) We shall see by and by how the diversity of complexion on the American continent is accounted for by the original race-tints on the parent continent of Atlantis.
