Remember how Kim said the dogs of the Navajo / pueblo people had the same dogs as the Tahltan? The DNA and language map should give you chills in the you tube video below. I wonder if there are still the forebearer dogs living with the Ket and other ethnic Siberians.

Somewhere I read that Siberia, in the old days, hundreds of years ago, perhaps thousands, went as far south as Nepal....

Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood and probably will not themselves be realized.

Then there is Alti Dog @33000 years ago - more closely related by DNA to dogs of the americas...http://www.wikiwand....he_domestic_dog

What we "know" through modern genetics is still very fluid. There is a project out there to pull together as many samples of modern and ancient dog across the world for comparison lead by a Brit. Hope to hear more in the near future. http://www.sciencema...g-domestication
This to me meshes nicely with the human findings in the Americas and the ice corridor / melt corridor that people had to move around during the ice age and ice age migration. I also like the great Kelp road theory for earlier boat/ shore line migration.

When I have a moment, I will read the links to your latest posts, Sherab. Also, I don't know if this has been discussed or not, but I feel that our dogs would somehow share DNA with The Dingo, The Canaan Dog (aka Jerusalem Dog) and even the Kelpie (which is believed to have come from the Dingo). After doing just a quick Google Image search, the appearances are very similar. I wonder if the Dingo or Canaan dog are the ones to have crossed the Bering Strait.
Sidenote: Ranger Komi is actually friends with a beautiful Canaan dog (Neve) .. they are about the same size, have the same antics, and are so similar to each other (only Neve is much lighter in color).
This is fascinating stuff, Sherab. Thank you for sharing all of this with us.

I still wonder if people didn't cross the land bridge from North America to Siberia also!

https://news.illinoi...iew/6367/204444 Interesting choice of picture.
1. I wonder how Kim's dogs would help the researchers to further understand single or multiple points of domestication
2. It seems from this article that even dogs have a missing link like people do - in archeology studies!
3. Most of us can confirm our dogs eat grass and twigs a lot!
I also liked the question that was asked at the end of the first link - long lecture; and that the lecturer agreed there should be more discovery and focus on the dogs history.

All they had to do was ask Kim and he'd let them know there was an acient not modern ancestor our dogs come from. (that is paraphrasing a lot - but gets the point).
Of course science is always catching up with the original native knowledge.
Glad it is coming about!

Like so much information, it takes scientific proof to make what we have known as truth to become FACT. Go figure. Sometimes science lags behind what I would call "elder knowledge."
Thanks for sharing this Sherab.....more to ponder.
