I think that both are consider andid, but I see diferences Aymaras looks more round headed, bigger cheekbones, more robuste and less tendency to dinarisation/armenisation if are compared them with Quechuas. What do you think?

Aymaras

Maybe...

They look like the typical Bolivian and Peruvians immigrants coming to Argentina, if i take a pic in the Bolivian/Peruvian town we will get the same result LOL. Anyway, what is exactly the difference between the amerindians of these coutries, and the ones from Mexico???



on the other hand, Amerindiand in the extremes parts of the Americas like Argentine and American indians like Cherokees and Onas tend to be taller right.
Is it because the lived in colder weathers and in places with more plains?

Reduction is usually the result of a lack of energetic input and group selection. This can be clearly seen in the Istmid Zentralids of Guatemala which lived under very poor conditions, whereas the progressive-mature Silvids had a good nutrition and strong group selection in which just the more versatile forms could survive.

Peru mostly quechua, the aymaras are around Titicaca lake besides bolivia, and there are many tribes in the jungle with their own characteristic. Bolivia is mostly aymara.

Itīs true, sadly that kind of people are the more visible examples. Where my family live in Lima, you can hardly see that people, only the maids and the gardeners (the rest of Peru is pretty different)

That's absolutely right! It's unusual to see that kind of people around Lima and the coast, and the north of the country in general. Peru is not that people. I really sorry indians are invading Argentina.

BTW, I find really interesting the diferences between american indians about their geographical location.

Now look at this (pure blood indians in all cases):

Some caucasian features in northern indians are very common to see:

When spaniards come to this lands on 16th century, described the inhabitans from north of Peru as "whites", "beautiful ladies with brown hair and no diferences between them and ladies of the Madrid Court (...) These white indians, whose eyes were blue, were whiter than spaniards (...) This people is the most white and beautiful of all the inhabitants of Peru"- Cronica del Peru - Pedro Cieza de León (1545)

These "white" indians, through centuries, have suffered the systematic mix with quechuas, but still keeping some "unusual" features of the amerind type.

Jacques de Mahieu had some theory about old viking establishments that agree with the legend on white blond Gods with blue eyes that the Indians speak since centuries to the present time. Arqueological evidence endorses this theory.

Thanks to my sister-in-law (who is anthropologist) to give me to the photos and the data :thumbup

Yes, in a way. The limb proportions of Patagonians/Fuegians resemble those of EUP Europeans. Its a morphotype suited to hunting.

Has anyone tested the Chachapoyas (supposed White Indians) for pigmentation genes? It was ruled out that they were Caucasian but I remembered nothing about pigmentation. If blondes evolved at least twice, why not blue eyes?

The blod haircolour is not contact with the blue eyecolour. F.e. what is Hungary is rare and weird, the blond hair with blue eye, that is common among slaves. Among Gergmanics the pigmentation is always balanced or the hair use to be darker with lighter eyes.
