Read the quite detailed physical description about the Eskimo and Indian.

What's "Alougolo-Malay"? This is a new description to me.

"The Indian, in many of his anatomical characters, stands between the white and the negro. His skin is of various shades of brown, tinged in youth, particularly in the cheeks, with the red of the circulating blood. The term "red Indian" is a misnomer. Very dark individuals of a hue approaching chocolate or even the color of some negroes are found in more primitive tribes, especially in the south and among the old men, who often went nearly naked."

It's interesting how skin pigmentation often relates to the advancement (technological?) in different races or sub-races (don't get me wrong, I mean this very loosely). The "trend" is similar on an entirely different continent. o_o

In school, I had the opportunity to look at and study hundreds of complete skeletons of American Indians. They were kept in "body boxes", cardboard boxes about four feet long. They were mostly Central California "Digger" Indians. All ages were represented. As a whole and in comparison to whites I can say that much of this article is true. The skulls are smaller and 'smoother" than whites. There is a high percentage of Inca bones and incisor shoveling. They are generally long-headed but not exclusively so. The long bones, generally, have less strong muscular markings. The body proportions are about the same. Where I live, I see their living descendents swimming along the river and I can say things haven't changed much. These people think of themselves as Mexicans but this is more of a historical or political connection rather than a history of population movement. These people have been here since Pre-Columbian times and have only recently adopted Spanish names and culture. Basically, they are Indians and look like Indians.

People always stereotype American Indians they are diverse
the reason why American Indians are diverse is because of pre-columbian Migrations and people in america not just migrated from beringia

If this is directed at me, all I can say is what I said. My conclusions are based on one group of Indians which I saw myself.

The Northern American Indians have later-more modern Mongoloid and stronger Europoid influence than many other Indians.

The North American Indians are quite progressive, Silvids are in my opinion one of the more progressive subraces of the world (roughly woodland Indians/NE of USA) and not comparable with Brasilids or Fuegids of the South which are quite primitive.

Unfortunately, they were wiped out with a few survivors scattered to the north (in Canada) and in reservations in the West - and as minor admixture in Scots-Irish "Rednecks."

The American Indians I've meet were Lakota or Sioux, their skin color is red the same color as the stone of their peace pipes. This is the skin tone they value most, when combined with long straight black hair that shows a purple like tone in the sunlight. They are a tall people over 6 feet tall and very intelligent. Like us they are a proud people and look after the purity of their race.

to be right, "These people have only recently adopted Spanish names and culture. Basically, they are Indians and look like Indians". Why?

Because, there was a colonialism in south america from 1942 (mainly Spaniards). Cause of the racial and cultural mixture.

I thought this information "informative" enough to post. Came across it recently when I tried to find out more about the Cherokee Indians. Most people that I have met who have some Cherokee blood all look more Nordid than most Nordids I know. I often wondered about that. Just look at Kim Basinger (born as Kimila Ann Basinger) from Athens, Georgia. Most of the information I have ever read about her always states that she is of German, Swedish and Cherokee Indian ancestry.
