Historic photo - White Indians of Darien, Panama 1920

"There is evidence that some pre-Columbian American Indians had white skin and blond hair. This photograph taken in the 1920s shows a white Indian child in native dress from the Chepu Tule tribe in Panama. Besides Columbus, Cortez found white Indians imprisoned in Montezuma's palace in Mexico City, George Vancouver saw them on Vancouver Island in 1792, and commander Stiles of the American Navy claimed to have seen the same group in 1848. Humboldt saw about 100 of them in Columbia in 1801."
