Are Native Americans descended from any race other than Asian?  The answer is
not simple.  Even if there is evidence for more than one racial input, this can be ex-
plained by postulating successive waves of migration over the Bering Strait.  Some
of these migrations may have included ancestors of modern Caucasians who crossed Asia.

Cayce himself brings up one of the other problems with finding the Atlantean influence in Native American races: later transatlantic migration.  The readings refer to the "Lost Tribes".  One of the popular theories, not taken seriously by most anthropologists, was that Native Americans were the descendants of the "lost  tribes of Israel" captured in the eighth century BC by the king of Assyria.  A related theory comes from the Book of Mormon.  The Mormons believe in two other migrations of Jews to America.

Cayce was not specific as to what he meant by the Lost Tribes.  Although no scientists today believe that the Jews were literally the major ancestors of the Native Americans, there is some evidence for transatlantic contact.  Scientists con-
tinue to debate how important that contact was, or whether it was necessary to
account for cultural parallels.

Thor Heyerdahl is one of the major proponents of transatlantic diffusion.  Heyerdahl is a Norwegian explorer who has sailed primitive craft across the oceans to prove that ancient people could have done it as well.  In 1970, he sailed the RaII from
North Africa to the Caribbean.  RaII was a reed boat, similar to those used both in Africa and Lake Titicaca in South America.  In EARLY MAN AND THE OCEANS, Heyerdahl chronicles the history of diffusionist thinking, and lists a variety of cultural traits that he feels are best explained by diffusion.  These include some of Donnelly's parallels; but Heyerdahl feels that they are due to contact across the ocean, not to Atlantis.  They are consistent with the Cayce readings, however, which describe a time

.....during that period as would be called 3,000 years before the Prince of Peace came, those peoples that were of the Lost Tribes, a portion came into the land.

[Q-1.]  How did the Lost Tribe reach this country?
[A-1]  In boats. (no.5750-1, November 12, 1933)
