The first people to settle in North America were the Solutreans, a shamanic tribal people who crossed the Atlantic from what is now France, on ice shelves during the Ice Age 17,000 years ago. A lot of people don’t know that. It’s all relatively new information…flint clovis points found in Virginia, DNA evidence, etc… not what we were taught in school. It wasn’t until 6000 years later people began to arrive from Asia. Over time, the two peoples mixed, which is why a quarter of the DNA of the Ojibway is European.
A friend who is 100% Chippewa had some blood work done a while back and it was determined through genetic markers that he was part French. He was baffled by this. Mystery solved. He’s part Solutrean! I’m half French.
In the meantime, we’re having record high temperatures here this week and the polar caps are melting at an alarming rate. There’s a strange irony to all of this, I’m sure, once you work out the logic and do the math.
The following is a Discovery Channel video: Ice Age Columbus. It’s cool!
