New Find Shows Two Peoples In Americas

Ancient fishing tackle recently found

A cache of 12,000-year-old fishing tackle found in southern California shows that two distinct, pre-historic groups of people once lived in the Americas.

The evidence, uncovered by University of Oregon archeological professor Jon Erlandson alongside a stash of discarded seashells and bones, might help scientists learn more about how North America became populated.

“They are a clue to the lifestyles of some of the earliest American settlers, and suggest that two separate cultures lived in North America at the time: one, the well-known Clovis culture, lived inland and feasted on mammoths, mastodons and other mammals; the other was a coastal culture with a taste for seafood,” writes New Scientist about the amazing discovery.

Location of the new find.

The fishing tackle, found at Santa Rosa and San Miguel islands off Southern California, “are ultra thin, serrated and have incredible barbs on them,” Erlandson told Science Daily. “It’s a very sophisticated chipped-stone technology.”

“Most of the tools were different from those unearthed at inland Clovis sites on the North American mainland, but some of the spearheads were similar, perhaps implying that trade existed between the cultures,” notes Grind TV.

While it is widely believed that people arrived via the Bering Straits to become the so-called “Native” Americans, or Beringians, another theory posits that an earlier group migrated across the North Atlantic via small, portable boats. That theory, known as the Solutrean Hypothesis, says these immigrants used Clovis spearhead technology, which was first uncovered in an area of Western Europe that includes Spain and France.

  • This is the traditional territory of the Chumash Indians, Santa Rosa Island, San Miguel Island, Santa Cruz Island, Anacapa island. They were the only seafaring Native People who regularly traveled the oceans in this area. They also constructed large planked boats used for trade goods up to 1 ton, and deep sea fishing of Swordfish, Sea Bass, Abalone, whale hunting, great white Shark, tiger and mako, among other things. The Chumash people were also the only people to have a true currency system. They have a solid occupancy on the Mainland as well as on all Islands mentioned. The archeological record for them goes back for at least 14,000 years, and are genetically related to Arlington springs woman found on Santa Rosa Island at 13,000 years old, they are the oldest set of remains found in North America, probably for all the Americas. They speak a language isolate that is not related to any other surrounding languages. Dr. John Johnson from the Santa Barbara museum of Natural History has confirmed they are from the first wave of the Pacific Ocean corridor that came by boat and are related more closely to the South American tribes like the Cayapa from Ecuador, the remains found in the Klunk Mounds, the Pericue Indians, and the Patagonian-Fuegans all Canoe people found mostly on the Pacific Coast, except the Klunk Mounds remains who were found in Illinois. These tools found on Santa Rosa were Chumash Indian seafarer tool kit and have nothing to do with Solutrians. Ate you saying that the Chumash Natives were really Solutreans who somehow reached Southern California? How could they when your whole premise that the Solutreans were Mammoth hunters who came to America and made the Clovis tool kit, to hunt Mastodon in America.? They didn’t, they were not seafarers, they were landlocked in Europe, then died out when the Magdalena Culture invaded the area, they have no modern descendants.

  • The Pacific Ocean corridor migration were of the mtdna Haplogroup D4h3a, just like ” On your Knees Cave Man” 10,000 yrs. in Alaska, the “Anzick-1 child” at 12,600 yrs. and Modern Chumash People.
