Black Native Americans fact or fiction?
These Black Native Americans are, among others,
* The Yamasee;
* The Olmecs;
* The Darienite;
* The Mandingo indians;
Black people are known as tropically adpated people. There are tropical regions both in North and South America. The indigenous populations from these regions must have been either black or very dark skinned. How come very little is taught or known about these black native americans in the mainstream in North America or South America? Is it part of a cover-up in order to deny indigenous rights to black people or plain indifference? I am certain that many (at least 30%) blacks in America (North and South) did not come on slave ships. They were already in America in tropical and equatorial regions.
As for Mandingo indians, let me cite " The isthmus of Darien in 1852, journal of the expedition of inquiry for the junction of the Atlantic and Pacific Oeans by Lionel Gisborne...... The Mandingo Indians are mentioned several times. There are Mandingo Rivers, Mandingo Bays etc. This is their legacy in Panama.
Here is another quote:
Green et al (2000) also found indigenous natives with African genes in North Central Mexico, including the L1 and L2 clusters. Green et al (2000) observed that the "discovery of a proportion of African haplotypes roughly equivalent to the proportion of European haplotypes [among North Central Mexican Indians] cannot be explained by recent admixture of African Americans for the United States. This is especially the case for the Ojinaga area, which presently is, and historically has been, largely isolated from U.S. African Americans. In the Ojinaga sample set, the frequency of African haplotypes was higher that that of European hyplotypes”. In a discussion of the Mexican and African admixture in Mexic
