  • One of the oldest skeletons in the Americas found in flooded cave ..Mexico..

    Dr. James Chatters, the scientist (who also first documented the US famed Kennewick Man (found at Kennewick, Washington state)) worked on this find of the 15 yr old girl skeleton named Naia by the scientific team.

    Based on an analysis of her teeth, Chatters found that Naia was malnourished and that her diet was based mostly on hunting big game. Chatters couldn't find any indication that Naia had feasted on marine life.

    That's interesting. They earlier thought she lived on lots of sea food because of high collagen. The place of lots of collagen is gristle in animals.
    Those shows on discovery etc of near arctic circle lifestyles. They mainly hunt game for food.
    Real hunter gatherers , not those survivor ones...have the lowest energy output for return of any human existence. Yes even less than our fossil fuel and supposedly efficient.. get it from the super market.

      thank you Sir, did not know any of that. I had not read of this skeleton before but have read several books on Kennewick man which is near that age, but was found washed out of the river bank so had been in the ground for thousands of years.

          as a sidebar note, one "native American" (Indian) campfire hearth myself and my brother excavated here on the river bank in Fort Worth about the year 1971-74 era,..... was near about 2 or three meters under the surface of the ground, and we think dated near 8 thousand years ago......besides the charcoal and limestone rocks that were in the hearth.....contained: a Bison (buffalo) leg bone, hundreds of fresh water mussel shells (they ate them after cooking we think), and white tail deer bones. the largest surviving animal remains were the fresh water mussel shells. There likely were smaller remains like turtle, plant and nut remains (i.e. acorns, as we found "grinding stones' or "manos" there also).
