The famous Maya people were partly Black

Beforehand, it must be said that this article is absolutely not meant for Africans to monopolize in the civilizational legacy of the Native Americans. But we should state and let everyone know that the ancestors of Amerindians, the people who built the most famous and certainly the most brilliant civilization of pre-Columbian America have a black ancestry. Moreover, we will understand that Mayas were obviously sharing some common cultural features with Africa.

In 1946, westerners disclosed the murals of Bonampak city, in the south of Mexico. Ancient Mayan city, Bonampak has the peculiarity to possess a chapel on which Mayan murals were left around 5000 of the African era (800 BC). The daily life of that legendary people is displayed in the murals and we can notice that they were – at least partly – Blacks. We recall the fact that Mexico had 26 million inhabitants as the Europeans arrived there. It was left with only 1 million a century later. All the others including the vast majority of Mayas have been exterminated. The Maya kingdom itself perished under the assaults of Europeans [1].

The following pictures are paintings from Bonampak. We took the pictures that we found credible and we authenticated almost all of them by university sources :

Mayans used to cover their body with felines’ skin like Kamits to catch the vital energy of the animal. Pay attention to the African hairstyle and the weird head shape again.

Therefore, again we ask: why Mayans were black with kinky hair? Finally where are they coming from? Today, we have enough information to answer these questions. The site of Pedra Furada in the upper-east of Brazil is the first place inhabited by the human being in the history of America. The paintings prove it. According to the dating, the site is 65,000 years old [2] and geographically, it clearly points at Africa. All other objects testifying the human presence in America are posteriorly dated in other places in the southern part of the continent.

The oldest skeleton of America, Luzia is 12,000 years old and is a Negro skeleton [3]. Today, we therefore agree in saying that America was populated from West Africa in Ancient times. The populating process started from the upper-east of Latin America to the rest of Latin America, and from South America to North America. Blacks from Africa were therefore living on that continent until Asians arrived 5000 years ago [4]. The fusion of both races gave birth to Amerindians. With this knowledge, having a Mayan with frizzy hair in America is not a surprise.

But the other question we must ask is: where is that bizarre head shape of Mayans coming from? The answer is hypothetical but it seems that it roots in the African tradition.

This strange shape can be seen on the daughter of Pharaoh Akhenaten and the Mangbetu children from Congo. It is a cultural trait of Black Africa. The head of the infant is tied up to get this shape. That is probably the reason of the Mayans’ weird head shape.

So if Mayans have cultural African traits, the question we ask is to know how they got it. From our point of view either Ancient Africans from America used to tie their heads already ten or so thousand years ago and that practice subsisted with Mayas or it was due to the contact with Egyptians. Tobacco is an indigenous plant of America. It was found in the digestive system of Ramesu Maryimana (Ramses II) [5]. This allows us to maintain a contact between Egyptians and the peoples of America, going back to 1300 BC at least. Thus, as they came into contact with the Blacks from Africa, Mayas would have started tying their infants’ heads. Or again last hypothesis, the Maya people themselves would be descendants of Egyptians. Discussions and research are open.
