Kennewick Man

Recently there was a sensation among scholars in Brazil because a scull found in 1975 turned out to be 11.500 years old and showed Australian traits. According to current theory, the oldest inhabitants of America came from Asia 10,000 years ago across the frozen Bering Strait. But now it is thought in Brazil that Australian aboriginals already came to America by boat 15,000 years ago. In the United States a 9000 years old skeleton has been found, Kennewick Man, which is not of an Indian but of a white man according to some people. According to others its is more like those of the Ainus (the original inhabitants of Japan) or the Polynesians. Again Orientals, therefore. Kennewick is in the west of the United States, near the Pacific Ocean, not near the Atllantic Ocean.

Unfortunately a law has been passed in the US which makes it possible for fundamentalist Indians (sorry - native Americans!) to bury and so destroy objects like the Kennewick Man skeleton. This is similar to the burning of almost all Aztec books by the conquistadors. In the Westfrisian Museum in my home town Hoorn there is a mummy of an Eskimo that was brought back by 17th-century whalers; there is a request that this mummy, too, should be taken back to Greenland. Although this mummy probably has little scientific value, it seems to me that returning it would give a bad example.
