They even make DNA tests to claim indigineous people of America, thus US belongs to Turks… They are working hard ,aren’t they?
NEW YORK (A.A) – 27.01.2008 – A panel discussion on “Common Roots between Native Americans and Turks” was held in New York, on Saturday.
The similarities between Native Americans in history, culture, language, shamanistic religions and hand crafts was discussed under the chairing of George Washington University Professor Turker Ozdogan at the Panel discussion organised by the Istanbul University Alumni Association of USA (IUMEZUSA) in the Turkish House in New York.
Prof. Ozdogan said that in recent years the common roots between Turks and Native Americans was clearly revealed by DNA tests. He noted that the DNA samples from Native Americans and Turks of Central Asia and Siberia matched.
Ozdogan explained the cultural and spiritual connections between the two peoples with examples: Ozdogan said he was astonished to learn that “Havasu” –a city in Arizona inhabited by a Native Americans– meant air-water, (same with the Turkish word combination) when he asked the meaning of it to Native Americans who lived there. Ozdogan asserted that it was hard to tell apart Native American carpet motifs from Turkish ones and emphasized that there were great similarities in language, music, sculpture, accessories and other hand crafts.
