I just had a feeling in my gut, that somewhere in this article, was something of import.

What do you think of this?

The museum’s archeological collection had frescoes from Pompeii, and hundreds of Egyptian artifacts, including a 2,700-year-old painted sarcophagus. It housed art and ceramics from indigenous Brazilian cultures, some of whose populations number only in their thousands. It contained audio recordings of indigenous languages, some of which are no longer spoken; entire tongues went up in flames. It carried about 1,800 South American artifacts that dated back to precolonial times, including urns, statues, weapons, and a Chilean mummy that was at least 3,500 years old.

Sounds pretty bad, but THIS line REALLY stood out to me:

It harbored some of the oldest human remains in the Americas: the 11,500-year-old skull and pelvis of a woman who was unearthed in 1975 and nicknamed Luzia. “The skull is very fragile,” the artist Maurilio Oliveira told The New York Times. “The only thing that could have saved it is if a piece of wood or something fell and protected it.”

What, the, fuck?

"Native Americans" only arrived in North America when the Cordilleran and Laurentide Ice Sheets separated.

So what, it separated and the new natives walked all the way to Brazil right away?

Sounds like another Younger-Dryas cover up.
