| Some people claim that the Native Americans did not originally come across the Bering strait. (not sure if I should post this here or the political forum)
The Bering Strait Myth is not so much science as it is politics.
Much objective modern science in the past several decades
has even suggested that it is highly questionable if there ever
was a so-called 'ice-bridge'. Yes, that's right, from an in-depth,
intensive and non-politically affected scientific study of earth
history, countless scientists (mostly non-American) have
concluded that there most likely never was an 'ice-bridge'!
When I was young, it was '12,000 years ago' when Indians
supposedly migrated over the 'ice-bridge' into this continent.
Over the years, I have watched this number go up from
12,000 years, to 20,000 years, and now in recent print, I
have begun to see the number placed at 30,000 years!
It seems that scientists just move the number back whenever
something Indian is discovered that pre-dates their Bering
Strait migration figure! I can tell you this, science does
not have the market cornered on fact, nor on truth.......
First.... Many Indigenous Nations have calendars which have
been counting the years for a very long time. I am aware that
the calendar of the Mohawk Indian Nation has been counting
the winters for over 33,120 years. This pre-dates the so-called
'ice-bridge' of the Bering Strait theory, unless, of course, the
Bering Strait scientists decide to move the interestingly illusive
time period of our early migration back to 40,000 years!
Many American Indian early histories tell of events that took
place on this Turtle continent (North America) long before any
so-called ice age. But, for political reasons, our histories
have been mostly ignored. You see, the Bering Strait, in truth,
is a theory that was born of the politics and propaganda of
early America. In the midst of the American 'Manifest Destiny'
social climate, the Bering Strait theory provided a 'scientific'
means to justify the taking of ancestral Indian lands. In short,
the mythical theory eased the conscience, as it was a way for
land hungry immigrants to believe that, because Indian people
were only 'recent inhabitants' of this land that it was not our
'homeland'. Therefore we were, in their minds, not any more
the 'original people' in this land than they were. This was, and
still is, the political power of the infamous 'Bering Strait theory'
