I hear ya. There are chit loads of neanderthals here in Australia trying to pass themselves off as civilised also. Scary thinking what these people would be like with out the moderating influence of religion or even police forensics. :D 

I wish I could take you out drinking with my SAS mates. I'm the "reserved" one. :lol:

I wish you'd speak English. Hell i'd even settle for Latin. 

I once, with the aid of my phone and a grounding in school boy Italian, got up in front of my students and demonstrated a High Church Mass in Latin.

Good for you. I hope you threw in a couple of swear words into the sermon. Just to add a bit of authenticity.

WWEELL my boss was watching as well, and he DOES speak Latin because he used to be a priest before becoming a principal.

Piney whether you like it or not you are the sum total of a Christian society based on Greco-Roman thought. Cal yourself Thunderheart and scalp as any white men as you like you, will never get rid of it. Effectively you have been exposed to a greater thinking and technology than your native american roots.

Here is a thought from me. Maybe Christianity was infiltrated by giants. By that I mean people lusting for power and gold. Described in the book of Enoch as consumers of animals and humans, and the enemy of the thunder God. Like Gilgamesh they wanted to be like the Gods. One can wonder what kind of inherence they would leave us with?

Maybe a world made by human mind instead of a natural developed world where human live in harmony with nature. Then we can look at our world today. Insects and animal dies rapidly while the temperature are increasing soon to be irreversible as the scientists say.

Maybe we should listen to Jonas sign and turn around. And let the God of thunder kill the Giants between our ears. I think we can all mature like the God of thunder did, and turn natural. hehe  :-)

An interesting thing - granted this is concerning Viking myths about natives, but still;

"Of particular interest may be the claim that Arthur encountered ‘people 23 feet tall’ in the Arctic Grocland (?Greenland), as early Greenland sources apparently tell tales of natives from there who are 23 feet tall."

Possibly total fiction, or maybe a memory of the Dorset, who the Inuiit recall being giants?

It was once thought that my people were "tethered nomads" in which we just collected the local resources that were already here. Then Anthropologists and archaeologists like @Kenemet and @Swede discovered we were agro-foresters to the 9th degree who manipulated the "wilderness" and literally created our own "Garden of Eden". Maintaining it's own cycle of life, renewing itself and providing us with what we needed without working too hard.

The problem is we lost much of that knowledge and places like Rutgers Forestry School and Paul Smith College are still trying to figure it out.

I always wondered if the Dorset were "multi-cultural" and both Algonquian and Athapaskan.

Similar to the Hopewell Horizon which was both Siouian and Algonquian with Muskogeans on the lower edge. 

But both did towered over the Inuit.

I am fairly certain the Dorset were not Algonquian. They lacked the bow and arrow, they did not seem to associate with the Innu (a certainly Algonquian people), and they were pacifistic to a fault. The Algonquians certainly did not take the actions of the Europeans lying down like the Dorset seem to have taken the actions of the Thule.

The Athapaskans brought in the bow and arrow.  

Were they possibly the Thule?

I'm not familar with anything other than the Coastal and Central Algonquians and Siouians .

Possibly they were the ancestors of the Thule, yes. That's most probable.

I've just looked at the artifacts. Never studied the interactions. I'm not to popular with the Dine' at NMAI. I called them out on their "we were always in the Southwest" woocrap.

Being that you are familiar with my people and our state. I was Alan Carman's "Token Indian", one of his dig assistants and co-curators. Although I did bounce around with Bonofiglio. 

I  also called Cara Blume a moron which made me unpopular in Delaware. But that's what most archaeologists in the Northeast think. My tribe should of hired Jay Custer or Ed Lenik.
