Am I the only one that noticed that traditional Oromo music videos look very similar to native American powwows. From their style of dress to their dancing. I've been reading about the Washitaw de Dugdahmoundyah Muur Empire they were an ancient native american tribe who were mostly made up of black people. Way before slaves arrived in America. I'm not saying that these people were descendants of Ethiopia. I know Ethiopians are very proud of their history and hate to associated with any other cultures. I'm just asking has anyone else ever noticed the similarities or is just me. And does anyone think it's possible that Ethiopians and native Americans ever had any connections centuries ago.
P.S please lets try to keep this thread civil if someone is an obvious angry troll just ignore them. I hate when threads go way off the topic.

ethiopia is the oldest country in the world. oromo people are as old as anyone. all the cushitic tribes in africa, including ancient egyptians came from ethiopia. that means the oromo, just like afar, beja, and others have top blood. try telling that to the neftagnas, and see their responses!

Your ignorant racist comment has nothing to do with an Oromo native american connection. News-flash no one west of the horn of Africa can tell Ethiopian apart so all this hatred is stupid. You all have inter-married over the centuries and you all share the same blood. I've seen tall brown-skin Habasha who look like oroms and I've seen short lighter Oromos who resemble Habasha people. Their is no historic proof that support the theory that the Habasha tribes are descendants of Arabs. It's all just racist nonsense. If you dislike a certain tribe because they mistreated you fine. But don't believe in unfounded nonsense to justify your hate.

Oromo are very influential ppl in history of this world. Oromo live in ancient Ethiopia bordered by Abyssinia and Egypt with other Cushitic speaking ppl and they create civilization in Egypt, Ethiopia (in todays Sudan and some parts of todays Ethiopia), Indus valley, China and Babylon. you can still see some Hindu scripture talking about cush ppl as their border include todays india, australia and most of africa. so you can easily understand as they have developed a civilisation to rule more than quarter of the world. so may be they also moved to america.

i don't see how they can have connections with each other due to the vast distance and also due to the fact that there is an ocean separating the new world to the old! but , who knows i might be wrong! History states that native americans came to america about 14,000 years ago from the asian siberian tundra, during the ice age which connected North america to asia (alaska and russia to be exact) And the other know visitors to america before Columbus were Vikings, who established a small colony which eventually dissapeared. Maybe the similarity between Oromo and native americans is just coincidential.

You guys are all wrong, their is no cultural similarities between native Americans and Oromo's, both in terms of way of dress, and music.

Rather I would focus on comparing Bhuttan and Tibetan culture with many Ethiopian cultures. Listen to their music it sounds like Ethiopian music!

I noticed the similarity between us as well and we share a lot in common with them-both of us were oppressed by colonizers and had our cultures/people oppressed and under educated.

I am an ethiopian and come to think of it it does make sense and they might have some sort of connection.
