More likely, Smithsonian Institution anthropologist Douglas Owsley said, he came from the coast, not the inland valley where his remains were found
The long-running detective saga involving one of North America’s earliest inhabitants has taken a new twist, with the discovery that Kennewick Man — the 9,300-year-old skeleton unearthed in 1996 on the banks of the Columbia River — probably was a visitor to central Washington, not a longtime resident.
The new book goes on to document how scientists reached the conclusion from Kennewick Man’s skull size and shape that he wasn’t directly related to modern-day Native Americans. He was most similar to the Moriori, a Polynesian people in the Chatham Islands, near New Zealand. He is also like the Moriori’s ancestors, the Ainu, who lived in coastal areas of mainland Asia 15,000 years ago.
“Did they leave their homeland when people from central Asia migrated to the coast?” Owsley and Walker ask. “Over many generations, had they paddled to new homes, some traveling south toward New Zealand, while others coast-hopped in boats northward and finally east to North America? Their skulls and those of the earliest Paleoamericans seem to support this.”
What if, In prehistoric history the Pacific was explored and colonized by these possible ancient hybrids? We do find megalithic structures throughout the Pacific island chains. Yet, often times the Islander themselves clearly state that they were built by some previous ancient people from long ago. Now I'm going to stop right here and clearly state. Many of the ancient monuments were in fact built by very well known cultures and people in recorded history.
But, Were they all?"
Caucasoid...important difference. This dude may look like Picard, but wasn't 'white'. Still one hell of a yarn as it unfolds. Mind you, the politics attached are quite something as well.

15,000 years ago or earlier seems to be an interesting period in human activity in the Pacific. Are we seeing clues of a long forgotten period of in prehistory?
I ask again as I always do, Is there a possible lost past of say an Island chain now submerged grouped cultures and civilizations that have been washed away as the oceans rose around the last of the ice age melt off?
