krsnaheru : @native_faces I just seen an episode of Unearthing America on The History Channel 2 where they made a connection between mounds and mining done in Macon Georgia to the Mayans. They found elongated skulls as well as artwork in the area that was clearly Mayan. Also the chemical makeup of Maya blue matched the clay mined in the area of Georgia where the Mayan artifacts were found, matching at a 99.9%. If u can find the episode it was definitely a good watch.
mayanengr : Yes more native/indigenous people need to get involved STEM it's good for protecting Mother Earth!
native_faces : @krsnaheru thanks! I've heard of that only having read an news article somewhere, and i havent investigated the arguments, if there are any, and I am a bit skeptical, but I will look for it and maybe later post something about it.
native_faces : @mayanengr YES!

Old example of a required reading list from the University of Arizona. This was sent to me years ago by ex Youtuber "Salsassin," who was one of the first to refute not only Eurocentric claims of the Americas, but also Afrocentric claims. Here, concerning the claims made by Van Sertima and Afrocentrism, when I was first exposed to all of this, I asked Salsassin if it was true that this stuff was taught at some schools and he sent me a few required reading examples.
nublakjay : Makes sense, I don't understand how a group of people could on the eastern edge of Afrika end up on the eastern edge of Central America etc, without become sick, or die from such a long journey.....
native_faces : @nublakjay yes.
nublakjay : My explanation is as basic as it gets with common sense, now I have question that you've probably answered millions of times but where do your people originate from, how many years back, the region.....? Just trying to get some clarification.
toots_ee : Purely for arguments' sake, I would posit that the reverse is also a possibility - that perhaps the Olmec people influenced African culture and not the other way around. Perhaps what we consider African culture was originally Olmec but we now consider it African culture. If it's possible that Africans reached ancient Olmec civilizations, then it's also possible that Olmec people reached ancient African civilizations first and influenced them and that this is the true reason Olmec art, religion etc. is considered to have African influence. Again, purely for argument sake. When it comes to theories, many scenarios are possible.
native_faces : @nublakjay well first I am mixed-race, so I am from all over. But I can trace my Native Mexican ancestry to an old pueblo in Mexico City. These people I descend from were descendants of the Aztec chinampa farmers along the edge of the old lake.
native_faces : @toots_ee yes for arguments sake this was actually considered in some forums and specifically a Olmec influencing Egyptian civilization rather than reverse.
nublakjay : Oh ok, I see you have such passion...hopefully one day your message will reach the masses
native_faces : @nublakjay hopefully and yes thanks. As frustrating as all this is, it's also interesting on all levels and so much to learn.

valhalla_calling : I've looked over your page. I just wanted to say; you have a lot of really important information available here. You're obviously very informed and passionate about maintaining reality of your unique and respectable and very diverse history. As a third party I just needed to let you know one human to another that I admire what you've done here. Keep up the good work. I have seen so many memes and things online from American Africans describing themselves as native to the Americas. While I do not doubt the obvious truth that many nations all over the world had trade routes and vast empires that would have people going from one side of the globe to another. (A point conveniently *cough cough* left out of descriptions of ALL prechristian contact.) It's ethically wrong to deny reality. We are all one species, within that we have such a wide variety of races and cultures. It should be celebrated, which does not include erasing our own cultures or adoption of others (unless it works for you. ) The worst crime we could commit against our children is to further cloud what little is left of our natural ways. People need a good strong foundation for who they are, that comes with a respect for your ancestors. An important part is simply knowing who those ansestors are. Your providing that information for your people, and you've offered a lot to learn on my part so I simply thank you.
native_faces : @valhalla_calling thank you! I appreciate the kind words and comments. I must express I am mixed-race with some native Mexican ancestry. In addition to all this, in the near future i will have a blog or website.
valhalla_calling : @native_faces well when your blog or site is up definitely let me know. As far as being mixed EVERYONE IS! Especially if we're taking it down to prechristian tribes. One of the basic tatics used against native people of Europe and America (well everywhere) was relocation obviously they took a cue from their war god and wanted to "confuse the tounges" this obviously leads to mixing. Just look at it this way if Christianity did anything good it was tearing down our tribal walls thus unifying the original natural people. It's maybe the only thing all people have in common we all came from a tribe or people probably multiple tribes and places and all of our collective history was ripped from us. Its a strong unifying factor. I'm a mix of various gaul/germanic tribes. I have name for a few but im sure there are so many unknown. As we traded and moved a lot as people before we were forced into slavery. Our tribes and lore talk about Vineland (modern north east coast Canada and America). And of course the people that lived here naturally. The church knew America's were here, I cant believe that sonething so well known and went to. Trade routes and everything were pretty well established as Christianity moved into our northern territory. I mean some of us fled to Vineland to escape. You can look up runestones in America as proof that some or at least one white tribe excisted on this land for at least some time before being killed or absorbed. Viking ships have also been found in America.
native_faces : @valhalla_calling yes. The Vikings were in the north in Newfoundland and Greenland something like 900 yrs ago. This was debated for a long time but there is actual archaeological evidence. : I just love your page so much! Makes me so proud of the rich blood within me! Thanks for spreading the truth brother!
native_faces : thank you! I appreciate that!

Couple things: 1. I strongly believe "Columbus Day" should be abolished. No counter-argument needed. Such a holiday or observance is a slap on the face to Native people. 2. Here on this channel are unpopular views, but I am not here to entertain popular opinion. So, with that, there is evidence that while there were enslaved Black Africans arriving on European ships since 1492, there is also evidence of Free Armed Black Africans who also arrived here after 1492. But zero evidence they arrived earlier. 3. Dentition alone does not prove they were Free Blacks. There are other sources that gives supporting evidence. 4. In no way does this image, nor does my views say, imply, suggest, or argue to start blaming black people for the Conquest. That would be your projection, not mine. This would be like portraying all Italians as murderers. Happy Indigenous Day but every day is Indigenous Day!
half_mexican_me : ve a Hitler Day? Maybe that comparison is not accurate; however, the fact of the matter is that columbus day should just be renamed Genocide Day.
native_faces : @half_mexican_me I think your comparison is good and I agree! If the government was to truly make some kind of amends, then they could start with treating "Columbus Day" differently and then deal with the "Redskins" issue.
half_mexican_me : And a host of other things too. Thanks for posting, love your feed, as usual😊
hazardousforya : Honestly it should be left to the descendants of such respected nations to observe such days as a day of mourning to honor their ancestors and not for the majority to decide. It will certainly take a few generations for this concept to take ahold due to the self-centered nature of the majority. The same can be said for the terms used such as "redskin," which entered used after the 15th century when the Spaniards and later the English observed the "Taino" spreading bixa/achiotl all over ones body. Terms such as red devils and such were common and are still in use for schools throughout the U.S. Now it is only a trend to cease from using such terms, to abolish the usage in schools and sports franchises, simply because it has its politic gains. Where was the majority then? Where have they been, those crusaders of all that is politically correct? It's 522 years to late for that. I don't fall for any of that crockery, as noble (of a cause) as any of it may seem.
native_faces : @hazardousforya first I must say, I haven't put too much thought into this subject so I will tend to agree with any view that makes sense whether they are opposing views or not.
native_faces : @hazardousforya however, many natives and native Mexicans do want to abolish Columbus Day and/or change it into "Indigenous Day," or whatever the case or name or what have you.
native_faces : @hazardousforya as far as the "majority" is concerned, and from my personal view at this time, I would say if such a gesture were to occur to abolish CD or resolve the Redskins issue, then it should be from a genuine place and not from the pressures of racial politics but from education and sincerity.
native_faces : @hazardousforya side note: there are some tribal leaders/members that are ok with "Redskins," but are not okay with the "Braves." So there are differing views within N.America just on that alone.

Some of the racists love to say, "Natives and Africans are one people." This is incorrect. And contrary to what the racists regularly spew- ALL humans are one human race.
native_faces : @jamiesandoval I am but never on there.
cresjr : @everyday_evolver indigenous American face
bayareaonly : Africans and natives aren't one but all humans are the same lol ?
lxjay201 : They both kinda look the same. Lol both chubby faces. Maybe the statue is mixed. Lol
native_faces : @bayareaonly LOL culturally, physically, linguistically etc. - and all variations, all tribes of the Americas differ from anything African - they are NOT "one people." And contrary to what you racists spew, ALL humans are one human race, which is waaay different than trying to lump NAmericans into your fantasy "one people." LOL
native_faces : @lxjay201 lol nah, not mixed at all. He's made of basalt.
bayareaonly : Racist ? Lol u said a African and a native aren't the same but all humans are one race ? Rest ur pride lol ull see
lxjay201 : @native_faces it's fluffy's ancestors

Go to Youtube and search "REVIEW: Black in Latin America, Mexico & Peru: The Black Grandma in the Closet, P1, Mexico. The REVIEW version addresses some of the falsehoods presented by Henry Gates. I happen to have a great deal of respect for Mr. Gates and to be very clear, Henry Gates is no Afrocentric. However, he is not exempt from criticism and this REVIEW film challenges some of those common American misinterpretations of colonial Mexico.
jaylumbee : He's a smart man. He gives people the truth, supported by research and documentation--not just hearsay.
native_faces : @yessi_xitlalic you are correct. I wish they would have included admix studies.
native_faces : @jaylumbee he's definitely a intellectual giant imo.
krsnaheru : There's afrocentrics that can't stand Dr Gates. He's one of the people who talks about Africans helping to enslave other Africans, which isn't hard for me to understand since there are generational disputes with neighboring nations for centuries.
native_faces : @krsnaheru that's true. On youtube I think the only time he's referenced is when they were trying to ridicule him.
yungflor : I respect his work he definitely has a greater lens than most folks. A true historian. He doesn't sit there and make up shit that's for sure.

Quote from Steven Hassan and my response to all this "meme-logic" going-on on social media, particularly aimed at all of these so-called truthers i.e. fake enlighteners, pseudohistorians, ethnocentrics, conspiracy theorists etc.
jordy_81012 : Those new agers tick me off the most
native_faces : @jordy_81012 yeah they are really annoying
jordy_81012 : Memes are pretty fun though

Pulque pouring from the breasts of am earth goddess, detail of Bilimek Pulque Vessel, Late Postclassic Aztec (Mexica).
jordy_81012 : I read about a Mexican archaologist that claims some artifacts are from 30,000 BC
native_faces : @jordy_81012 as far as the Bering Land Bridge theory something I will work on in future posts. There is also a Hypothesis of a "Bering Standstill," where supposedly natives had occupied for 5, 000yrs, before traveling the coasts southward. So there are a few things I need to revisit before I can accept that theory or not.
native_faces : @jordy_81012 anything past 20,000 yrs is speculative. It all depends on artifact, how it was found, condition of land it was found...for example, artifacts have been found in the past where if the land has shifted or moved due earthquakes, landslides or construction etc. then those things can make such a find appear to be older than actually is.
jordy_81012 : Tru tru. I just like to think that we originated here as a species.
native_faces : @jordy_81012 yes there is that too. In fact it is called "out of America." I occasionally look into that too because there are some very interesting arguments made but I don't know all there is about it completely, yet.
jordy_81012 : Where are you from? And are you full native? I hate having my blood diluted .__.
native_faces : @jordy_81012 my ancestry is from all over so I am mixed-race, half European American; Irish/German, and half browns; native Hawaiian, native Mexica, Okinawan, and some Gypsy. But i dentify closer to my Pacific Islander Hawaiian/Mexica cultural heritage because of my upbringing. Yeah I know what you mean, sometimes I wish I was more of one thing than being all mixed up.
