Barbados is an eastern Caribbean island and an independent British Commonwealth nation. Bridgetown, the capital, is a cruise-ship port with colonial buildings and Nidhe Israel, a synagogue founded in 1654. Around the island are beaches, botanical gardens, the Harrison’s Cave formation, and 17th-century plantation houses like St. Nicholas Abbey. Local traditions include afternoon tea and cricket, the national sport.

AMER'ICAN, noun A native of America; originally applied to the aboriginals, or copper-colored races, found here by the Europeans; but now applied to the descendants of Europeans born in America.

Popol Vuh (also Popol Wuj) is a cultural narrative that recounts the mythology and history of the K'iche' people who inhabit(ed) the Guatemalan highlands northwest of present-day Guatemala City. Popol Vuh is a pre-conquest narrative dating to the Post Classic period, roughly CE 1000-1500. The actual written text, however, is a product of the Spanish colonial period. The title translates as "Book of the Community", "Book of Counsel", or more literally as "Book of the People". Popol Vuh's prominent features are its creation myth, its diluvian suggestion, its epic tales of the Hero Twins Hunahpú and Xbalanqué, and its genealogies. The myth begins with the exploits of anthropomorphic ancestors and concludes with a regnal genealogy, perhaps as an assertion of rule by divine right. As with other texts (Chilam Balam, being one example), a great deal of Popol Vuh's significance lies in the scarcity of early accounts dealing with Mesoamerican mythologies. Popol Vuh's fortuitous survival is attributable to the Spanish 18th century Dominican friar Francisco Ximénez.

    So you deny scientific data and again push the afro-centric nonsense that the american indians were negros. Much like the wrong Egyptian hypothesis sub-Saharans were not indians.

    Yeah. "People painted fairly crude depictions of Native Americans with darker pigments, or at least pigments that look darker after they sat around a few hundred years. Therefore I am justified in stealing other people's cultural heritage. Damn the DNA evidence."
