    Roy,

    According to the article, "Meadowcroft Rockshelter has yielded the largest collection of flora and fauna materials ever recovered from a location in eastern North America.[16] The arid...

    Roy,

    You wrote: "those ancient humans were not hunting anything larger than deer!"

    I believe you are mistaken here, as there are many sites where mammoth, bear and horse, together with...

    Wrm.,

    Like I stated, "As told, I don't think it's possible." Many others have a different opinion, and their theories are no more provable than mine.

    Good luck,

    Joe Ribaudo
  4. Hi Roy, Actually, I believe there were many...

    Hi Roy,

    Actually, I believe there were many sources for the first Americans. I don't discount the possibility of Europeans, Africans, Asians nor island peoples. I think some of the...
  5. Roy, From what I have read, it's believed the...

    Roy,

    From what I have read, it's believed the "Land Bridge" was open many times over long periods of time. As the ice ebbed and flowed over the centuries, the land bridge was exposed and covered...
  6. Roy, IMHO, the evidence you seek is no longer...

    Roy,

    IMHO, the evidence you seek is no longer above the surface of the Bering Sea. There were many periods when the Continental Shelf was dry land and its surface extended far beyond the shore...

    Roy,

    I only picked out four books to recommend:

    "Bones Boats & Bison" by James Dixon, "The Bering Land Bridge" by David Hopkins, "The Settlement of the Americas: A New Prehistory" by Thomas...
  8. Wrm., Injunbro did not say Pine Ridge...

    Wrm.,

    Injunbro did not say Pine Ridge Reservation was in North Dakota. I believe he was saying you could visit it easily in South Dakota from your location.

    Good luck,

    Joe Ribaudo

    Roy and Beth,

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the new year.

    I have always been partial to the Ice Free Corridor story, it just sounds neat and answers a lot of...

    Earnie,

    I have a number of books that discuss this point, no pun intended, along with an Asian connection, but here is another Internet site:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clovis_point

    Take...
  11. Injunbro, Thank you for your reply. I...

    Injunbro,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I happen to like Menzies' theories but don't see "boats" as the only answer as to how the Asians got here. Following mammoths, who were probably under...
  12. Injunbro, I believe the DNA research supports...

    Injunbro,

    I believe the DNA research supports the theory that the Apache/Navajo originated in China and Mongolia. It is likely that mankind evolved from Africa and spread into Europe and Asia...
  13. Roy, I agree with you concerning the book, and...

    Roy,

    I agree with you concerning the book, and the fact that you are enjoying it gives me a great start on the Christmas spirit.

    I believe the Apache separated from the people who became...

    Guys,

    Here is a very short list of the books I have:

    Chiricahua Apache Prisoners of War, Living Life's Circle; Mescalero Apache Cosmovision, In the Days of Victorio Recollections..., Cochise :...
  15. Roy and IPUK, I have been reading about Apache...

    Roy and IPUK,

    I have been reading about Apache history and pre-history for many decades now. I know what the general consensus is for their origin and history, but would be hard pressed to...
  16. Dave, The theory is not original, although I...

    Dave,

    The theory is not original, although I do agree with it. I believe it was first proposed by Helge Ingstad in "The Apache Indians: In Search of the Missing Tribe". The theory may have come...
  17. IPUK, When the Apache were chased into the...

    IPUK,

    When the Apache were chased into the Southwest, they raided and harassed the peaceful pueblo dwellers. Eventually they abandoned their cliff homes and moved away. Some of the Apache liked...

    Lynda,

    As I recall, the best cat tacos were sold on the bridge leaving TJ.:cat:

    Good luck,

  19. Roy, Capturing the families of the warriors...

    Roy,

    Capturing the families of the warriors was a big part of Custer's strategy at the Little Big Horn. That was what he was trying to do when he attempted to cross the LBH into the village. ...

    Roy,

    Here are copies of the book you are seeking:

    https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/SearchResults?sortby=2&tn=al+sieber+chief+of+scouts&x=55&y=16

    They are available for under $5.00 to over...
  21. Lynda, There have been a few others here who...

    Lynda,

    There have been a few others here who feel they were viciously attacked. My own interaction with Ryan, showed him to be very thin skinned and quick to fly off the handle when I had a...
  22. Roy, Hope all is well with you and Beth. ...

    Roy,

    Hope all is well with you and Beth.

    Very good post, except for the portion I highlighted. I believe it is still being taught that to take a defensive position, even a machine gun...
  23. Earnie, Dave is dead on in many peoples...

    Earnie,

    Dave is dead on in many peoples opinions. You have, obviously, missed some really ridiculous posts.

    Good luck,

    Joe Ribaudo
  24. IPUK, You can't beat Mother Nature's survival...

    IPUK,

    You can't beat Mother Nature's survival of the fittest to weed out and strengthen the earth's population. It's what keeps us all from having to huddle around a giant campfire to keep from...
  25. IPUK, It's true that no one treated the Apache...

    IPUK,

    It's true that no one treated the Apache as equals, and that did cause a lot of unrest and a great deal of paranoia amongst them. They, like all Indians relegated to reservations were...
  26. Steve, Much of that "media" bolstering,...

    Steve,

    Much of that "media" bolstering, misidentified the Apache as the perp's of......everything. Their "timing in history" was also their downfall. Had they been able to read, and understand...
  27. IPUK, What do you consider "the bitter end"? ...

    IPUK,

    What do you consider "the bitter end"?

    Good luck,

    Joe Ribaudo
  28. The Apache were definitely an interesting people....

    The Apache were definitely an interesting people. Among the other Indian tribes, I would guess they were not as dominating as some think. Just because they avoided capture while being hunted by the...
  29. Per, The Athabascan speaking people were the...

    Per,

    The Athabascan speaking people were the last to come over the Bearing Land Bridge and settled in Alaska. There are many tribes that belong to that language family. Eventually, the...
  30. Not so bold really. You can still get up and...

    Not so bold really. You can still get up and walk away from the campfire without assistance. :walk:

    Take care,

    Joe
  31. Paul, I have the exact same problem.....not...

    Paul,

    I have the exact same problem.....not enough room. I have started a list, with the prices I paid, to make it easier to sell my collection when I'm gone. Between the books and the guns,...
  32. Paul, Ah....my friend, You are deep in the...

    Paul,

    Ah....my friend,

    You are deep in the clutches of history. I can assure you she will make every effort to drain you (your bank account) dry.:laughing7: Fascinating, isn't it?

    Take...
  33. Injunbro, I know I have told this story...

    Injunbro,

    I know I have told this story before.......somewhere.:dontknow:

    We made a trip into Mexico with the Neptune Dive Club once. They camped in a gated private campground on the beach. ...
  34. Injunbro, Agree with everything you have said....

    Injunbro,

    Agree with everything you have said. Almost everyone here knows who I am talking about, no need to name him. I believe he hangs out here almost every day, under a different name. I...
  35. Marius, It's turkey, just like the guy who...

    Marius,

    It's turkey, just like the guy who gave it to me. I knew the meaning of the "gift", just didn't know he didn't mean it.....maybe he did, just couldn't chance it. We all change over time,...
  36. Roy, "Anyway thank you for the reply, have...

    Roy,

    "Anyway thank you for the reply, have been suspicious of this modern aura being assigned to the Superstition mountains as an Apache holy burial grounds etc."

    As I understand it, the Apache...
  37. Roy, "The Diaries Of John Gregory Bourke"...

    Roy,

    "The Diaries Of John Gregory Bourke" contain notes of their travels through the Superstitions and close to "Weaver's Needle". I don't believe he ever mentions finding ceremonial sites or,...
  38. Injunbro, That is how I understand things to...

    Injunbro,

    That is how I understand things to be as well. Do the people at Fort Apache/White Mountain differentiate themselves by the different bands that live there, or have they just adopted the...
  39. Marius, According to the elders at San Carlos,...

    Marius,

    According to the elders at San Carlos, no such ceremonies take place in the Superstitions. On the other hand, there is a wanabe Apache who likes to make that false claim. He has even...
  40. Marius, We sell durable medical equipment in...

    Marius,

    We sell durable medical equipment in the store behind me. I am sitting in one of the more comfortable power wheelchairs. I am still able to walk, but not very far.

    Take care,

    Joe

    Don Jose,

    The army hired the Apache scouts. They were paid the same as cavalry soldiers.

    Take care,

  43. IPUK, Living free to the Apache with Geronimo...

    IPUK,

    Living free to the Apache with Geronimo meant killing and raiding Mexican villages. Their life style did not allow for living peacefully with.....anyone.

    Apache history is out...
  44. Injunbro, I was enjoying your posts, until you...

    Injunbro,

    I was enjoying your posts, until you decided to be led away from the subject. I would be more than happy to discuss the Apache of the Southwest.

    Please continue,

    Joe
  45. Injunbro, He did wait until she was 17 to...

    Injunbro,

    He did wait until she was 17 to marry her. I wouldn't be so quick to judge when you don't really know what took place. Things are different in Mexico. My grandmother was an "arranged"...
  46. Paul, Hope all is well with you folks. ...

    Paul,

    Hope all is well with you folks.

    Couldn't agree with you more.:icon_thumright: Fascinating bit of history with lots of research material out there. I've spent a great deal of money...
  47. Roy, Both of your examples had the Indians...

    Roy,

    Both of your examples had the Indians running or hiding......Not living at either place. Skull cave had nothing to do with the Apache, other than the army being led there by an Apache scout...
  48. IPUK, It could be that the Apache simply loved...

    IPUK,

    It could be that the Apache simply loved killing, torture and raiding. The history you are getting over there is not necessarily how things really were. You do seem to have a slight bias...
  49. Injunbro, Most of the Apache started giving up...

    Injunbro,

    Most of the Apache started giving up long before Geronimo went on the run. He had to come back to the reservations and "kidnap" Apache to keep his numbers up. The numbers of those on...
  50. Injunbro, I would not be so quick to judge the...

    Injunbro,

    I would not be so quick to judge the Yaqui's. Father Perez de Ribas, S.J., who lived among the Yaqui from 1606 to 1617 wrote this:

    "They were considered by the Spaniards to be the...
