Upon researching the indigenous peoples of the Canary Islands located of the coast of West coast of Africa in the Atlantic I was intrigued that the Islands inhabitants are surrounded in mystery and rich in culture. They practiced mummification as well as other rituals.

The odd thing that strikes me is their appearance and the statues that were left in their rememberance.

Who are these peoples? Why do they look like Caucasion?
How and why are they there?

arly European accounts differed in their descriptions of native Canary Islanders. Chroniclers described one group as tall, blonde and blue-eyed, another as being of medium height and a darker complexion, and a third group was said to be of smaller stature. The Guanche population of Tenerife were, according to accounts from the 15th century, tall, powerfully built, with some having blond hair and blue eyes.

Its the tall powerfully built ones that didnt belong in the pre 1500's
