United States, Facebook, American Eugenics Society discussed on Coast to Coast AM


Creek and other indigenous peoples from the eastern United States now we're not talking about twelve foot giants who are anything extraordinary like that. Which about what on the order of seven foot, seven and a half feet. Well, that's that's a a really excellent point. And that's why I refer to them myself as the tall ones. It's not only a much more appropriate descriptive term. But it is also the term which was used for them by the tribal elders consulted by the great native, American scholar. Vying? Loria who published about this in his book red earth white lies in nineteen ninety seven. The actual reports of archaeologists that acknowledge the larger remains going back to the excavations of the Smithsonian in the eighteen eighties. Are describing people who range between seven and eight feet in height with very powerful musculature is evidenced by the attachments, which are detectable in servicable on the bones. Very thick skulls who practice. Started facial cranial deformation their facial skeleton was also very pronounced in powerful. They had large brow ridges, but it's been well known since the mid twentieth century that these people did not have any type of disease that caused these trade they were studied by numerous physical anthropologists from Ohio, and Illinois, and other places these bones. So there was a genetic component to this. It just happens to be a very widespread genetic component. So why the controversy why for example, do we not see the remains of these tall ones in the Smithsonian or other museums? Why some researchers claim has it been suppressed? Well, first of all you're not seeing remains because the burial law the laws regarding the respect for native American human remains at this point strongly. Discourages the display of any room remains from prehistoric tunes that that are in the ancestry of native Americans, but in terms of the policy of denial. The reason why this subject became blacklisted in the first place really has nothing to do with modern archaeology whatsoever. It goes back to the beginning of the twentieth century when you Genesis and scientific racialist took over the hierarchy of the department of anthropology at the Smithsonian and a man named alias heard lich initiated a policy of denial. By which the Smithsonian would refuse to acknowledge the large skeletons in their own reports. And the reason for this was that at that time the American eugenics society had targeted native Americans in the United States for complete extermination, and they believed that the existence of these anthropologically superior people in native American ancestry would contradict their own racist dogmas. So in other words, the tall ones. Had physical characteristics which were just based on their size superior in that way. That's what you're referring to their physicality didn't fit the narrative didn't fit the narrative of European superiority. Yes, what people need to understand. Is. That the generics. Movement worldwide in the late eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds based a person's genetic quality solely on the types of bones. Their ancestors left behind if you go and research, the writings of all the major eugenicist, including American eugenicist such as Madison grant or the English eugenicist Houston, Stewart Chamberlain who inspired Hitler. You'll find that all of them referred back to the massive stature of their own ancestors as evidence of their area and supremacy so here in native America, we had a competing gene pool of very large individuals recorded in the Smithsonian. Phone reports. And it was very well known up to the point that the policy of denial was instituted. Well, that explains the suppression let's say one hundred years ago sixty years ago, maybe even fifty years ago, but why why is our is the existence of these tall ones still being suppressed in two thousand nineteen. Well, I think there are a number of reasons for it. First of all, it's important. It's important that we reflect on the field of research as a whole this information was largely forgotten until just several decades ago, and immediately there were all sorts of sensational ideas and topics attached to it by people who started investigating it and sort of rediscovering it, and this probably caused a knee jerk reaction among mainstream archaeologists sedan apologised send in some ways. I can understand why. But in terms of simply acknowledging that they exist, I believe that that is actually going to happen. And I don't believe it's going to be very long before it does. There are simply too many of the large skeletons on record we know of at least three places where they're still being stored. None of which is the Smithsonian. So if there are any enterprising anthropologists out there. That would like to double check this mystery. I can actually help you to do it by pointing you in the right direction. How would they get a hold of you Jason? You can reach me on Facebook Jason Gerald or you can come to paradigm collision dot com, which is our website and contacted me through that. And again jaryl is J A R R E L L Jason Giral, you can find him on Facebook or the website paradigm. Collision dot com. We're gonna break your bottom of the hour here. We'll take some calls after the break before that though. I'd like to circle back into some. Some native American legends and myths, and we have to talk about the skin walkers where do these shape Shifter's fit into native American cosmology? Well, in terms of shape Shifter's, I would really like for people to understand that shape shifting at least in this part of the country in the northeast as as a native, American belief. It's attached literally to everything. It's a cosmos was fluid and continuous. It's a parent by reading the native American oral traditions as they were documented by the S nog refers in the eighteen hundreds that shape shifting was a power attributed to any being with spiritual abilities, including human beings. If we go back to the earliest cultures. We see that the three realms of the native American cosmos are connected by sacred tree or a great mountain referred to as an axis Monday. The shamans in this layer cosmos, going back, at least three thousand years the role of the shaman is to travel to the world's above and below usually aided by altered states of consciousness and in order to do. So they would wear the regalia or the bones of certain types of animals because it was believed that by doing. So they could adopt certain aspects are traits of the animals which could facilitate their journey between worlds. It's for this reason that we see many ancient Adena mound. Builder. Variables with parts of folds Panthers. Birds and bears buried with them. During the era of the Hopewell mound builders, there became even more important than they've found figure a figurine at the Newark, earthworks depicting, a priest or shaman wearing the skin of a bear holding a severed human head. So they concept of shape shifting became bound up with every form of native American perspective of the supernatural, even.
