    No, however there is no evidence suggesting that they WERE hunting and consuming mammoths, since nothing was found.

    Most mammoth hunters butchered the kill at the site where it was killed, only...

    Do you know what these people were eating? Thanks in advance,

    :coffee2: :coffee2:
  3. Well I see that we have to disagree on several...

    Well I see that we have to disagree on several points here, and there MAY be some misunderstanding as well.

    Do you agree that the OLDEST human remains, would precede any humans that followed...
  4. To address this first, it would be a mistake to...

    To address this first, it would be a mistake to think of the end of the last Ice Age as gradual melting of the ice pack. It did melt slowly much of the time but also at times rather quickly, and this...
  5. I would propose to you, that the evidence for the...

    I would propose to you, that the evidence for the alternative theory, over the sea (following the coasts and edges of the ice pack, thus being able to exploit the abundant aquatic mammals like seals,...

    Thanks Joe, but perhaps there is some misunderstanding here. I am not saying that NO cross migration occurred across the Bering land bridge. I have no doubt that many animals did indeed cross,...
  7. Thanks Joe, however it will take some time before...

    Thanks Joe, however it will take some time before I can get to all of those four; that said, I rather doubt that any argument is going to work to convince me that the Bering land bridge idea is "The"...
  8. PS - further evidence against the land bridge...

    PS - further evidence against the land bridge idea, is that with those oldest human remains found in Chile, there were NO bones or other traces that they ever hunted any of the large animals (mega...
  9. IPUK just a side note here but 'Don' Jose, Real...

    IPUK just a side note here but 'Don' Jose, Real de Tayopa is not his name; the 'Don' is an honorary sort of 'title' as was bestowed on wealthy Spanish landowners. As he qualifies in the land...
  10. Not sure how this topic (Apaches of the...

    Not sure how this topic (Apaches of the Southwest) ties in with whom or which group of humans arrived in the Americas "first", but like everything that IS related, it is COMPLICATED.
    The land bridge...
  11. Not to take issue with anything here, but the...

    Not to take issue with anything here, but the Navajo-Apache relationship has a complicated history. At times they were allies, at other times enemies. Also this ally-enemy relationship could be...
  12. I agree with Cactusjumper's theory, sounds...

    I agree with Cactusjumper's theory, sounds plausible, and there are similarities in their language even in what they called themselves - Di-ne and Ni-de. Early references to the Navajos often call...

    IPUK thank you for the very kind words, even if undeserved. This topic is very complicated, and many folks have opinions which are based on an incomplete understanding of the facts, one can hardly...
  14. Well in defense of horses, I have never had a...

    Well in defense of horses, I have never had a horse kill one of my own dogs, while on the other hand one of the mules we had, managed to kill two of them in short order. Which to tie in with our...

    PS sorry but I missed this part, IPUK wrote


    Yes, fairly recent history has shown when that view point about the "pure race" purebloods became very popular, and included taking steps to ensure...
  16. Well have to agree in part, and respectfully...

    Well have to agree in part, and respectfully disagree a bit. In my own research on the Indian wars, which includes the numerous conflicts in the southwest, there are indeed cases of that...
  17. Well I had intended to drop out of this. ...

    Well I had intended to drop out of this. However, as you are now calling me a liar, I will point to your post in reply to my first one, in which you were defending that post which has now...
  18. Well I am in the dark as to what ever "trend" or...

    Well I am in the dark as to what ever "trend" or parallel you are referring to here. I had responded to a post you had made, which is NOW apparently vanished. In future I will make it a point to...

    Old I only posted about your defense posts ONE time. I have not "immediately" attributed all context and motive to Ryan's project concerning your posts. You brought up Ryan in an earlier post,...

    Old, I can say the exact same thing, as I have very much enjoyed your posts (most anyway) and found you to be an excellent researcher. You have posted (in several threads not just this one singular)...
  21. OK I re-read the first few pages and it appears...

    OK I re-read the first few pages and it appears that PERHAPS you have misunderstood some of what that "vicious exchange" was. It was a misunderstanding, some barbs were tossed NOT intended as real...
  22. Well you are talking about a strong point...

    Well you are talking about a strong point defense, which is not the same as having massed lines of infantry charging across open fields into machine guns, as was practiced in the European method...
  23. Not to take issue with any of the posts, just...

    Not to take issue with any of the posts, just something to consider.

    A good case could be made that the Amerindians actually WON the war of conquest. That may sound strange to you, however...

    IPUK I would suggest to read that book posted earlier, concerning the slave trade in the American southwest. True the Spaniards did introduce slavery into the Americas, yet slavery was a thriving...

    Interesting posts, have to agree with much, and respectfully disagree in PART.

    There is strong evidence that the famous Apaches of the southwest, were...

    Thanks Joe - I do not own a set of Bourke's diaries, which as you know are quite voluminous and spendy ($50 starting prices for used copies) and even these do not cover the entire collection. I do...

    Democrats are savages? What gave this impression? Was it my scalp-shirt or the scalps decorating our lodge? The arm-bone breastplate, perhaps? The ear necklace? Certainly not my skull-cup, which...

    PS ditto to the words of my friend Cactusjumper, HAPPY VETERANS DAY!
  30. I am not sure which scouts deserve so much...

    I am not sure which scouts deserve so much credit, especially since there were also 'white' scouts like Tom Horn and Al Sieber, plus Miles had hired additional Indian scouts from "other tribes not...

    Not to derail this further, but just wanted to point out that Geronimo stated in his autobiography how relentless the US troops were in pursuing him and capturing his camp repeatedly, after Miles...

    Nothing to disagree with in either post, just for our members here that do NOT have access to a good library (or a great personal library like Joe has) what we are discussing is available to you. I...

    I understand - much the same reasons why I prefer to stick to primary sources when possible, rather than modern authors. A person writing their own story will not have an unbiased...

    Great post Paul, thank you for taking the time to write it. I would suggest to read Mile's own version of events, in his autobiography, which may not change your views whatsoever but does shed light...

    Well I would point out some specifics here. For one, the Yavapais were not discerned as being a separate, different people by the Americans at the time. Also, in both cases which I cited, the...

    Interesting discussion. A study of general Miles campaign which successfully ended the Apache wars (for good) by an endless 'hunt' of the hostiles rather than any large victory/battle is...
