Proof has been found to suggest that native Puerto Ricans and Cubans once lived in North America.

Ancient rock paintings once thought to be of Native American origin have been determined to be from a much older people. Rock art specialists have determined that a painting on a slab of rock in northern Georgia is proof that ancient Puerto Ricans and Cubans once lived in the Southeastern United States.

"One day, long before Christopher Columbus claimed to have landed on the eastern edge of Asia, a forgotten people cut steps in the rocks leading up a steep bluff near the Chattahoochee River in the northwest section of the State of Georgia."

Seriously? I went to sweetwater park like every week! I've never even heard of this! Why did my teachers not tell us about this? That would've been decently cool to learn about.

Uh??? Where else might they have come from? Didn't all Native Americans come in through North America? Is there a competing theory they came up from the South?

Humans migrated from east to west, and outward from the equator, not such a big suprise.

Cool. But I think most people could assume this. Theres no way humans could have gotten to Cuba except through North America and the glacial land bridge between Russia and Alaska

I'm a little confused here. Is that stone the actual artifact or simply stock photography? Those images are clearly southwestern. Not southeastern. Nowhere in the southeast do you see depictions of Kokopelli. not to mention the bear fetish which is of pueblo origin.

Kokopelli was the mythical humpbacked flute player of the Hopi???

The generally accpted theory is indeed that the Native Americans came from the north, some 14 or many more thousands of years ago. But that doesn't mean that when they arrived in the countries in middle and southern America that they stayed there for millennnia without moving on in different directions. That means that Caribbean peoples have migrated back to the north again. As far as we know now, they started in South America (the Araw... [More]
