Kennewick Man Skeletal Find May Revolutionalize Continent's History





What the experts were able to ascertain from their brief encounter with Kennewick is that he did not look like a Native American. In fact, Dr. Hugh Berryman says Kennewick’s facial features are most similar to those of a Japanese group called the Ainu, who have a different physical makeup and cultural background from the ethnic Japanese.

Some Ainu’s facial features appear European. Their eyes may lack the Asian almond-shaped appearance, and their hair may be light and curly in color. However, this does not mean that Kennewick Man necessarily was European in origin. His features more closely resemble those of the natives of the Pacific Rim than those of Native Americans.
