White Indians in South America

Over the years we have received several inquiries regarding the dark Lamanites and fair Naphites and if there are any evidences of the white Nephites at the time of the Spanish arrival.
Scattered among the black Indians in some South and Central American tribes are white children recorded in Pre-Columbian periods; there are also records of White Gauche Indians of the Canaries, White Indians in early Polynesia, and White Indians on Easter Island
    While this is not suggesting there were Nephite survivors of the last, great battle at Cumorah (though Nephites left the homeland Land of Promise in Hagoth’s ships in the last century B.C., over 400 years before the Nephite Nation was annihilated at Cumorah), it is obvious that with so many Nephites that defected over to the Lamanites over the many hundreds of years of their co-existence in the Land of Promise, that the “white” gene might show up, and would be expected to show up, in subsequent generations. And such we find in South America.
    Besides the predominantly dark-skinned natives in the Caribbean islands and the Americas, there were also many very white and some quite black inhabitants in the New World.  David Abulafia, Professor of Mediterranean History at the University of Cambridge, in his book The Discovery of Mankind, (2008) noted of this first voyage:
    "What Columbus wanted to find was people who were fully clothed, preferably in rich silks (as Marco Polo had described the Japanese). So it was very exciting when one of his men who had gone a short distance into the jungle stumbled upon a troop of thirty Indians among whom were three men in tunics, one with a tunic right down to his feet which made the Spaniards think he was a Christian friar, all the more so since they were 'as white as us'. The Spaniard was in fact so alarmed that he turned and fled, but the man in the long tunic tried to catch up with him. Columbus finally decided that this man must have been the local cacique (chief). But the admiral was becoming tired and ill, and, aware that he could easily become stuck without provisions, he turned back to Hispaniola."

This painting shows that even nearly 100 years after the conquest, there were still a few of the old Guanches left, and they looked just like the chroniclers had described them; large, blond, bearded and powerful
    The concept of light-skinned Indians may seem like an anomaly, but it is not so rare as one might believe. Within academic circles the pre-Spanish inhabitants of the Caribbean islands are generally classified as Native Americans, but they also fall under the category of "Atlantic Islanders", along with the light-skinned Guanche Indians of the Canary archepelago. There are even linguistic ties such as the use of the root word "Guan", used all over the Canaries in Guanche place names, and in the Caribbean on the first island Columbus landed on in the Bahamas, "Guanahani," as well as Cuban place names like Guantanamo and Guanabacoa.
Pre-Columbian Mayan wall-painting in the temple at Chitzen-Itza. The caption 'depict a series of relating episodes concerning a fair-skinned people with flowing yellow hair, defeated in battle and subsequently sacrificed by conventionally equipped black-skinned warriors'
    Priests or artists decorated Chichen-Itza walls long before the arrival of Columbus (pictures first published by Morris, Charlot and Morris in 1931, Vol. II, plate 146) were obviously well acquainted with the fact that there existed people with race traits different from their own. Further, Morris et al notes: “Just what this unusual disparity of type may mean is purely a matter of conjecture, but it can not help but bring to mind legends rife throughout the American continent concerning the fair skin and golden hair of a mythical race.”
    In the 1920's Richard Oglesby Marsh, a civil engineer working for an American rubber company, was exploring the jungles in Panama south of the canal zone, and discovered an entire tribe of white Indians numbering around 2000, who spoke a language with a proto-Indo-European structure, built stepped-pyramids and even had a whistling language similar to the silbo used in the Canary Islands to this day. He very aptly described his findings in the suppressed book "White Indians of Darien," (G.P. Putnam's Sons, N.Y. 1934), which included photos, maps and vivid details of him introducing three of these young natives to the United States to be examined by some of the leading scientists of the day.
    In his 1934 36-chapter book, Marsh wrote and illustrated the story of the Chepu Tule Indian tribe near San Blas, Panama. In 1924-1925 he organized a scientific expedition with a party of 24, including an anthropologist, biologist, naturalist, geologist, botanist and topographer. Many of the 400 natives he met on this adventure were light-skinned and blond with hazel colored eyes (though not albinos), who lived primitively in the surrounding jungles for untold generations, built terraced pyramid mounds, and spoke a language with a Sanskrit structure.
This 16 year old girl Mimi and two boys from her tribe, Olo-ni-pi-guina age 14 and Chepu age 10, were brought to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in America to help unravel the mystery of their culture, which originated centuries earlier among the coastal culturers of Peru, the Yuncas and Chimu, and according to leading scientists and geneticists of the 1930s, more recently as practically pure-blooded Mayans
    Besides Columbus, Cortez found white Indians imprisoned in Montezuma's palace in Mexico City, George Vancouver saw them on Vancouver Island in 1792, and commander Stiles of the American Navy claimed to have seen the same group in 1848. Humboldt saw about 100 White Indians in Columbia in 1801. White Indians have been reported among the Mandan tribe along the banks of the Mississippi River, and in one of the first books ever published by a Native American woman, "To The American Indian; Reminiscences of a Yurok Woman" by Lucy Thompson (1916), she devoted an entire chapter of her work titled:  "Traditions of the Ancient White People," where she gives vivid descriptions of the indigenous Caucasian tribe called "Wa-gas," who had inhabited the northwest region of California prior to her Yukon people.
    She describes the Wa-gas as moral and civilized, and says that they taught her people all of their arts and sciences, including the fish traps still in use in the 20th century, and says these Wa-gas were all over the continent. These same early white indigenous tribes were also described by another native American woman named Sarah Winnemucca Hopkins in her 1883 book titled "Life Among The Piutes; Their Wrongs and Claims," who said that her tribe wiped out an entire tribe of 2600 reddish-haired people who lived along the Humboldt River, and this war lasted 3 years, finally trapping the last of them in a cave and burning them out with a large fire.
Even the Book of the Hopi mentions the Pahana (Bahana), described as the Hopi's lost white brother who will return again and at his coming the wicked will be destroyed and a new age of peace will reign, ubiquitous as legends of Quetzalcoatl, Kululcan, Viracocha and many other bearded, light-skinned inhabitants of ancient pre-Columbian America. Pedro Pizarro, a Spaniard chronicler who took part in most of the events of the conquest of Peru in 1571, stated: "I saw in this land an Indian woman and a child who did not differ from those who are white and blond. These people say that the latter were the children of the heathen gods."
    Although stories from credible witnesses dating to the Conquest state over and over again that white natives were found throughout the Americas, why is this part of American history considered taboo in bookstores, universities and throughout most of the scientific community?
    It seems as if these white aboriginal cultures in our politically correct world are "on probation" because of the transgressions of their European cousins. However the answer lies in the politically incorrect fact that the higher cultures in the Americas...the Mayan, Aztec and Incan, were not created by American Indians from Asiatic origin, but were imported from the Fertile Crescent at the dawn of history by these aforementioned light-skinned mariners, who crossed the Ocean in some type of seaworthy vessels and introduced to the Western Hemisphere the science and technology that already existed in their homelands of Mesopotamia and Egypt and the eastern Mediterranean cultures. The Canary Island Guanche culture was part of this pyramid-building/mummy complex expansion, and the similarities are uncanny.
Six Guanche stepped-pyramids 40-feet high were discovered in 1998 and are a mystery to archaeologists. They were astronomically-oriented with the sunset of the summer solstice
    The European colonization of the Americas and Polynesia after 1492 was just a replay of a very similar colonization that occurred approximately 2500 and 4000 years ago.
    Ultimately the higher cultures or empires on both sides of the Atlantic collapsed, and all that was left of the original populations of colonizers were many scattered tribes of white Indians who returned to a more primitive existence, frequently involved in conflicts resembling racial civil wars with other tribes.

  1. New discoveries shatter old myths of political correctness. Great information.
