This is an important item because it shares cultural information we were lacking. These giants were white and that nails them as part of the Irish tribe of giants that had specimans as late as the eighteenth century as reported by Samual Pepys.
We already knew they were part and parcel of the Atlantean global disaporia that operated from 2400 BC through 1159 BC. We knew about Ireland and understood the relationship. Now we can be sure that Ireland is the likely origin of these peoples.
The irish giant appears to be a genetic anomaly but that needs to be rethought as well. there are too many of them.
Cushman then recounts the discovery in 1880 at a burial mound site near Plano, Texas, of human bones “of enormous size... the femoral bones being five inches longer than the ordinary length, and the jaw bones... so large as to slip over the face of a man with ease.”
As for the Chickasaw, Cushman notes that they have no record of their history before the colonial period, although it is assuredly "the same as the Choctaws, being one tribe and people until the division made by their two chiefs Chikasah and Chahtah many years after their arrival and location east of the Mississippi River" (p 358).
Of the Natchez, Cushman records that they, "if tradition may be believed, also came from Mexico where they had lived for centuries" (p 440).
The word Nahoolo or Nahullo “is now emphatically applied to the white race and no other... The Nahullo were of white complexion, according to Choctaw tradition, and were still an existing people at the time of the advent of the Choctaws to Mississippi,” concludes Cushman (p 153).
