I live in a tiny corner of the world so I only know about the peoples that live near here, but I see many connections to other cultures and countries.
Feel free to add what you might know about the origins of the tribal peoples you might know about and maybe we will see patterns ignored by orthodoxy who believe ancient people did not mix and travel across the ocean and seas.
I also find it interesting that the Syrians claim to be from Sirius.
Many years ago I had a book called the first two million years, it was a Large hardcover book and claimed to have all of the known roots and origins of all the peoples of the world.
Well it didn't and it was badly written and they had nothing in any sort of chronological order.
They had not consulted with many peoples and it was just a lot of old fashioned ideas with some fluff and it was being sold as fact.
I only really know about NZ and the Polynesian peoples who came here and more recently we have uncovered about other cultures living here before the polynesians came 850 years ago.
The Polynesians have been traced back the foot hills of Cambodia and were the Lapita pottery people.
We see they started to go into the sea around 3000 years ago. This it thought the be population pressures.
The Orthodox theory is that tribes of people would live in an area until the population grew too big them they would go expand their boarders until they encountered too much resistance or they found geographical boundaries and that would be the new size of their tribal lands.
Many people would flee large approaching tribes to escape death.
The unorthodox theory is that natural climate change or natural disasters caused these mass migrations or possible out breaks of killer diseases.
More likely combinations of the two are what caused the large mass migrations found in Asia.
The ancient ancestors of the Polynesians left from many points around Thailand, Cambodia and South East China.
They have been traced by Language across the pacific [many of the words used in the Philippines are the same as the words in the Maori language , wai for water for instance] and also by the pottery debris left behind and the Art as well.
We see that they went westward across the Pacific sailing into the wind so they would be blown back if they became lost.
They swept past NZ and did not discover it until 1250AD according the orthodox theories.
At that point we see seven waves of immigration.
Early European explorers and settlers of NZ tell the story of Seven great canoes but this is a misconception aided by their lack of understanding of the language.
The Maori had no written language until the Europeans arrived and started to write it down after their own fashion.
Oral traditions are often told as stories to make them easy to remember, so many of the stories were taken literally instead of figuratively by the early Europeans.
An until recently that was the history as we knew it. But anomalies started to be found and some of the guardians of the Maori tribal knowledge have come forth with the information they have been keeping for centuries.
Much of this was scoffed at by historians and scholars until very recently where indisputable evidence has arisen.
Archaeological excavations have revealed that people were living in NZ as far back as 2000 years ago.
The last wave of Maori immigration [ 650 years ago] contained the most organised and violent of all the previous tribes .
They did not want to live alongside the peoples already there they wanted control and ownership and they set about getting it.
They would kill all the men and incorporate the women and children into the tribe.
Like all conquerors they would take the best things from those they conquered and incorporate them into their culture.
We see the symbols of the Egyptians and possibly Greeks and Romans in their art and designs.
The Haka was originally performed on the bended knee and it was in tribute to Bes an Egyptian figure.[The modern Haka is a perversion pulling the piss]
We see the secrets of working green-stone [Jade] coming into their culture.
The Kumara [Sweet potato] becomes a staple food and is from South America originally.
The art and weaving designs also appear to be adapted from South America but with organic form instead of geometric form.
There are 27 excavations in NZ that are embargoed because they contain non Maori artefacts and with the land claims they worry if it was revealed that they were not the original inhabitants they might not get the deals[ this is just worry over nothing as they have a contract with the crown]
Stone circles in the same design as Stone henge have been found on the Tip of the North Island they are at least 2000 years old.
The questions we ask now are who were these peoples and how and why did they come to NZ in these times.
It is a damn long way away from anywhere.
Why did the Polynesians leave Asia?
Who were they escaping from or was it a natural disaster?
Hopefully by comparing tribal migrations around the world patterns previously discounted will be revealed.
