Most Native Americans,(and when I say Native Americans I mean people from North and South America),normally have square jaw bones that can categorize them with Mongoloids, which may distinguish them from any Caucasoid findings.Even more interesting is that Polynesians have pentagonal shaped heads when looked upon from the backside of the skull and have what is known as the rocker jaw,which distinguishes them from other native races.In The Proceedings of the Indiana Academy of Science , Albert Reagan claims that the cliff dwellers of Arizona, The Aztecs, The Zunyis and Peruvian people all have brachycephalic skulls and also have an extra bone in the back of their skull known as the “Inca Bone”(Reagan,1904). 299 more words
