Spooky indeed

This is a reply to a comment by k on a previous post HERE:

Those Mayans are spooky little people. heehee. Just kidding.  They are actually amazing.  So amazing!

The aggressive can try to annihilate them but the Mayans never give up.  It's a good thing, too!  We are all richer for their having survived so many waves of invaders, with their stories, intact, of what is real and what is not.  It also helps archaeologists to piece together the migrations described by the Hopi, for instance.

The Hero Twins are also in the Navajo traditions but much later.  This isn't so surprising as Native Americans moved freely around North America even after the borders were established by Americans.  I think of  The Book of Hopi also, where their migrations are described, since the Mayan cities were abandoned no one knows when.  The Hopi verbal traditions also contain Hero Twins.  See Mayan and Hopi Hero Twins

I hope that someone keeps doing DNA studies of all the tribes, too, as well as linguistic studies.  If I were young.....
