Black Olmec Of Mexico
The First People in The Americas Were Black Africans
We've been told for hundreds of years that, basically, all black people on the North and South American continents, arrived as, non-voluntary captive passengers, on slave ships. But, that history may have to be rewritten, after what, archeologists found, deep in the jungles of Brazil.
In The Jungles Of Brazil
In the jungles of Brazil an important and surprising site was found, a prehistoric rock shelter with thousands of strange pictographs and paintings. Human skeletons that aren’t European or Indian were also found. Archeologist dated the remains to the ice age. These people were in the Americas before the “native” Americans. Archeologists found fragments of bone and charcoal that were 50000 years old. Next to the charcoal they found the remains of animals these people had eaten.
So it seems the “new” world was populated thousands of years before the arrival of the Indians. Shocking!
Human skulls were found that were 9-12000 years old, the oldest skulls in the Americas. Computer analyses by established scientific measurement on the oldest of the skulls, to determine the race of skull, revealed the skull was anything but Indian (Native American). It was the skull of female dubbed, Lucia
So are native Americans the first Americans?
According to a 1999 BBC documentary on the program “Ancient Voices” the answer is no. The show focused on the oldest skull of a woman, they dubbed, Lucia, they found at Serra Da Capivara, in remote northeast Brazil,dating between 9000 to 12000 years ago, although stone tools and charcoal from the site, show evidence of human habitation as long ago, as 50,000 years ago.
The shape and dimensions of skull, and the face that was reconstructed from it, show it to be the face of a black woman, descended from Australian aborigines. Forensic artist, Richard Neave, from the University of Manchester, UK, who performed the facial reconstruction for the skull, he named it Lucia, stated that the result was surprising: "It has all the features of a negroid face," said Dr Neave.
Just so there no confusion about what negroid means. Here's the definition of negroid, "negroid of, pertaining to, or characteristic of the peoples traditionally classified as the Negro race" (Dictionary.com). In other words, Black people.
"Lucia's" skull, even trumps the age of the skull found in North America, dubbed, the "Kennewick Man", which was dated to be around, 9000 years old.
I guess at this point, (unless further evidence comes in), this answers the question are Native Americans the first Americans, in the negative. People considered to be of the so-called, "black" race, are the first Americans
I’ll end by saying that, in relation to the term Native American, anyone born in the United States or the Americas, is by definition, a Native American.

DNA test’s prove that aboriginal from Australia are not connected to African Black aboriginals they are two different people’s completely. The Olmec’s are related to the Australian Aboriginal’s. It is interesting that they were here in America first. I wonder if anyone has done a comparison of NA DNA to A A?
Doris James MizBejabbers from Beautiful South on February 20, 2019:
I owe you an apology. On a previous hub mentioning Lucia, I suggested that you look up the Olmecs. Then I found this one. I'm so glad that my suggestion is superfluous. The Olmecs fascinate me, but you are the first one I've read to mention that they were Australian aborigines. The articles I read previously supposed them to be of African origin. People just can't let go that life may have spontaneously originated elsewhere than Africa.

Thanks for your interesting input Truth!
That skull was around 12000 years old but,
"According to a 1999 BBC documentary on the program “Ancient Voices” the answer is no.

So this skull was just old as one you brought attention too, But people had been using the cave in Brazil for 50,000 years.
"Chatters dismisses this idea, noting that in the current study, “We’re not looking at an ancestor-descendent relationship here necessarily. We’re simply looking at a common heritage.”
The researchers were looking at common heritage, not, trying to prove who were the first inhabitants of the Americas.
Truth on May 21, 2016:
It would be unfair for me to not also share this. When the DNA of various modern Indigenous American tribes were analyzed there were three in the study that were found to be of Australian aboriginal decent.
Truth on May 21, 2016:
While the earliest skulls found in America do appear similar to modern Africans, the DNA evidence extracted from them shows otherwise.
You're right about the term Native American though; which is why many prefer Indigenous Americans or Indigenous People of America.

The truth always hurts, I guess that's why we have for thousands of years been feed misinformation.

Very interesting. One thing I do not get is why they have to come from anywhere else. Seems like with 50,000 years being understood that it would not necessarily show that they did not evolve right there in Brazil.
Thanks for a great read.
