    Post Kusunda: an Indo-Pacific Language in Nepal

    Kusunda: an Indo-Pacific language in Nepal.

    Whitehouse P, Usher T, Ruhlen M, Wang WS.

    Santa Fe Institute, Santa Fe, NM 87501, USA.

    The Kusunda people of central Nepal have long been regarded as a relic tribe of South Asia. They are, or were until recently, seminomadic hunter-gatherers, living in jungles and forests, with a language that shows no similarities to surrounding languages. They are often described as shorter and darker than neighboring tribes. Our research indicates that the Kusunda language is a member of the Indo-Pacific family. This is a surprising finding inasmuch as the Indo-Pacific family is located on New Guinea and surrounding islands. The possibility that Kusunda is a remnant of the migration that led to the initial peopling of New Guinea and Australia warrants additional investigation from both a linguistic and genetic perspective.

    If my theory is right this people must be genetically, at least partially (mixture must be considered) Weddid and in physical characteristics Weddid-Australoid.

    Another proof for the idea that originally Australoid populated SE Asia and were subsequentely displaced, mixed or extinct by more progressive Europids and Mongolids from the North in the dynamic processes of South and SE Asia.

    Like the Negritids small survivors still exist in a relatively pure form even in the SE Asian islands.
