Unusual media article
« on: February 12, 2010, 12:10:27 am »
Here's a newspaper which claims the Inuit came directly from Siberia, not from North American Natives. Yet the finding describes a brown-haired individual, despite the artist's black-haired reconstruction of the guy - last I checked brown hair was a Caucasian trait not an Asian one:-

    Are there not some light skinned people from Japan and maybe around ancient Persia or India?

The Ainu in Japan have blue eyes and pale skin.  Some South Pacific islanders are blue-eyed and pale-skinned. The northern Chinese are often very pale-skinned. Also, yes, there are some people from very Northern India who are pretty pale.

Actually, the article says "Inuk" is not related to the Inuit. Instead...

"...analysis also showed that the man was most closely related to three Old World Arctic populations – the Nganasans, Koryaks and Chukchis of the Siberian far east rather than American eskimos.

...movement that was independent of other migrations that gave rise to the modern Native American and Inuit communities."
