Dare to Ask: Do Native Americans have facial and body hair?

Jul 29, 2009 Full story: Florida Times-Union 108

This may seem a silly and ignorant question to those who are Native American , but do Native Americans have facial and body hair? Recently, I met a man who said he was 100 percent Native American but who had heavy beard stubble and very hairy arms.

Most ancestors of today's indians of north america originally came from Asia (genetics [sciency] and language trees [statistics] say so). Since American indians and asians share ancestry, they have similarities like body hair. Sparse.

Really? So then why don't American indians make up the majority demographic segment? Hispanics are soon to become the majority because they are smarter at the PC games so either they are smarter than American whites [liberals] or just better liars and brainwashers.

Personally, no race is any smarter than any other. Some individuals are smarter than most and some are dumber than most.

Native Americans are all different. Geronimo had a mustache, but he was full blooded. I have an old book about the plains tribes, and some full blooded men have beards n mustashes. I'm northern Asian Chukchi, related to Inuit, and caribou herders from my tribe have mustashes, I've seen it very often.!

Either you are an American or your an illegal.
Which is it?
This crap about Mexican American
Asian American
Italian Ameriacn
and so on is nothing but bull crap.
Are you an American or Asian, Indian, Black or what?
But to try and classify yourself as two things is wrong.
And whatever Columbus said was long before you were born.
Now which are you, and American or an Indian?
If your an Indian get the hell off our soil.
Want to make a big thing out of it I can do that.
Remember the so called Native or Indians wanted to become Americans, I have no problem there as long as they have the same laws to follow and obey but when they want it both ways, no way, it is the American way or stay on your reservation and live your life as your ancestors did.
And give up your American citizenship.
You stupid racist. Our people were killed off by you immigrants and now you're trying to get us off :(

Athabaskan (interior Alaska & W Canada) is related to Yeniseyan (central Siberia) but no other Amerindian languages are proven related to Asian ones. Inuit is related to Inupiaq (S Alaska) and distantly related to Aleut. Chukchi is close to Koryak, in fact both are dialects of Luorawetlan. Itelmen (Kamchatka)and Nivx (Saxalin) are not proven related to anything. All the other languages of E Siberia are related to Manchu.
In the Americas, Greenberg claims all the languages (!) are related to each other except Inuit and Athabaskan.

I've always known my great grandmother was Indian and my great grandfather white . Their children (my grandfather) married my grandmother (Mexican decent). I don't I know what tribe my great grandmother was from . I have a very odd color I'm not white nor brown I would say a yellowish tan . I have small eyes long black hair . I'm not skinny or fat I'm just very curvy and I don't grow a lot of leg hair . My question is what am I ????? I look very different from anyone I've ever seen. I'd love too find know what tribe my grandma was from how do I find out .( there's really not anyone in my family I can ask they mostly all have passed away )

Male pattern baldness comes from your mother's side of the family. Look at your mother's brothers and father and that is what you will inherit.
I wish that was true, but it is clearly a myth. My dad's side was bald and NONE of the men on my mom's side lost any hair. But four of us male children were bald early on.

My 1st wife's dad, brothers, and uncles did not lose any head hair. Yet my son inherited MY baldness.

So, lots of exceptions to THAT theory.

Curious about this statement. Is this an opinion with no confirmed basis in fact? OR is it a fact that has plenty of scientific study and proof that there is no IQ differentiation between various races.

If that were true, you'd think that the same would be true of various breeds of non-human animals such as dogs or cats, yet in the dog world certain breeds are supposedly known to be smarter than other breeds.

Not that I care that much, but I hear all kinds of claims and most are not supported by anything other than personal belief or anecdotal evidence, a poor replacement for solid empirical evidence.

The southwestern tribes have more hair.
You are right about the hips. Native women were slender and built like Asian women before they mixed with white people. I somehow inherited the slim build even though I obviously have a lot of white blood in me.
Not so true. There are detailed accountant of the differences in pacific west tribes from the original settlers. Some tribes were slender and thin with fine features, however some were rounder, shorter and had more"primitive" features. This was too far back for then to have mixed yet. Most natives from my tribe have little or no body hair.

OMG the racism on this thread is ridiculous! But anyway, native American or note, everyone could easily get rid of facial and body hair by having it removed through laser hair removal. several skin care centers do that kind of thing. The likes of http://www.tropicalaserlongisland.com/b4-afte... and it won't matter to them what you lineage is. They are fair, level-headed people out there.

I am Mexica that's Me-shee-ca, as in what whites call Aztecs, we never called ourselves Aztec, it would have been ok when we lived in Aztlan, anyhow I'm Native American, America being a continent illegally occupied by European invaders also immigrants here. I have facial hair, slanted eyes, no hair on my chest, only grow facial hair in patches. Most tribes men plucked out facial hair, to say asians Dont grow facial hair is dumb because they do, but that was more of a way of saying we all came from Asia right? How ridiculous.
