Tocharians - the eastern Indo-Europeans

In my last post we got a first look at pre-Columbian Europoid presence in America. We're certainly not talking about Indo-Europeans in America, but about earlier Caucasoid groups. But our ancestors, the Indo-Europeans, or the Aryans as they were also called, were also a very expansive and adventurous group. We already know that they invaded India and introduced the caste system, we strongly suspect that they explored the Middle East and Egypt under names like "sea peoples" and Hittites, we know that they created high cultures in today's Iran, and we know that they also spread their culture to today's Europe. The fact is that a longer description of the achievements and adventures of the Indo-Europeans over the last 2-3000 years should almost be avoided under normal circumstances, as it can create hubris. But under present conditions, where the Indo-European youth are exposed to ethno-masochistic brainwashing and propaganda on a daily basis, a description of the achievements of our ancestors is a necessary counterbalance to the attempts of the powers that be to give our people a bad self-confidence through falsified history and concealment.

This post will serve as a short introduction to the Tocharians, the eastern Indo-Europeans. This Indo-Aryan branch reached the regions of inland China (Taklamakan), where they founded a civilisation that is today being gradually rediscovered through findings of blonde and red-haired mummies, among other things.

DNA-tests also indicate that the population of these regions have both Europoid and Mongoloid genes. Nordicists like to see the Tocharians as the bringers of all culture to China, and thus trace the present Chinese culture back to a Indo-European origin. This is of course hard to prove or disprove, and personally I'm content with just finding the Tocharian mummies interesting.

  1. Key point on the Indo-Aryans; Where did they come from? How did they develop? Why did the leave the North and travel to the corners of Eurasia? So many unknowns regarding this very prolific people.

    Finally, what is their relationship to the Basques, the first people of Europe? So many questions.
