This link below is to a book published back in 1775 written by James Adair who lived with the Native Americans over 40 yrs as a friend, trader for the English and this is his thesis to the Kings, Lords and Intellectuals of his day as to why the Natives of America had to be related to the tribes of Israel or Hebrew and all his facts, stories, reasoning for such thinking.
You can read on line or down load it for free, the book is also available for purchase at various places.
James Adair is one of my ancestors an where our Cherokee / Irish line comes from, it is a well written book, I place it on this site to support other Posts claims to help fill in the gaps. The fact that a lot of the Old Ancient Native beliefs compare closely to those of Hebrew is very interesting.
At the bottom of this Blog you will see a link to the book for purchase for your convenience and study.
