Abstract: The origin and history of indigenous populations before their supposed ‘discovery’ by exploring civilizations the world over, largely remain unknown. Indigenous cultures believe in totemistic tales of creation that are verbally passed down across generations. Moreover, written languages are non-existent for most of these populations. Their history is, therefore, often subject to conjecture, on the one hand, and scientific debate, on the other.
