In the present case, ?E. 3 centuries after Polynesians settled the island also known as Rapa Nui famous for its massive stone statues Although circumstantial evidence had hinted at such contact this is the first direct human genetic evidence for it In the genomes of 27 living Rapa Nui islanders the team found dashes of European and Native American genetic patterns The European genetic material made up 16% of the genomes; it was relatively intact and was unevenly spread among the Rapa Nui population suggesting that genetic recombination which breaks up segments of DNA has not been at work for long Europeans may have introduced their genes in the 19th century when they settled on the island Native American DNA accounted for about 8% of the genomes Islanders enslaved by Europeans in the 19th century and sent to work in South America could have carried some Native American genes back home but this genetic legacy appeared much older The segments were more broken and widely scattered suggesting a much earlier encounter—between 1300 CE and 1500 CE But did Polynesians land on South American beaches or did Native Americans sail 3500 kilometers into the Pacific to reach Rapa Nui “Our studies strongly suggest that Native Americans most probably arrived [on Rapa Nui] shortly after the Polynesians” says team member Erik Thorsby an immunologist at the University of Oslo He thinks that could support the controversial theory posited by Norwegian adventurer Thor Heyerdahl more than a half-century ago that Native Americans had the skills to move west across the Pacific But many scientists say that Pacific currents and Polynesian mastery of the waves make it more likely that the Polynesians were the voyagers They may have sailed to South America swapped goods for sweet potatoes and other novelties—and returned to their island with South American women Sweet potato was domesticated in the Andean highlands and researchers recently determined that the crop spread west across Polynesia before Europeans arrived Another hint of trans-Pacific exchange comes from chicken bones—unknown in the Americas before 1500 CE—excavated on a Chilean beach which some believe predate Christopher Columbus Skeptics say that genetic evidence from modern human populations is not enough to prove ancient contact The genetic clock is often uncertain says anthropologist Carl Lipo of California State University Long Beach “We need ancient DNA from skeletal evidence—not modern evidence—to resolve this question” *Clarification 27 October 11:50 am: Erik Thorsby is described as supporting the hypothesis that Native Americans voyaged on their own to Easter Island Thorsby like most scientists believes it much more likely that Polynesians brought Native Americans to the islandWritten by Mrinal Pande | Published: May 6 2017 3:52 am Empire in The Hills by Queeny Pradhan Top News Rudyard Kipling had once asked an interesting question: “What do they know of England who only England know” After reading Queeny Pradhan’s well-researched and documented narrative on the hows and whys of the creation of hill stations (Shimla Ooty Darjeeling and Mount Abu) by the British the likely answer would be: “Maybe not nearly enough” To most of us England today looks so small and isolated that we need to be reminded how vast the British empire was in the period 1820-1920 when the British built these hill stations in India to service their own needs for the rest and recuperation of white British civil and military officials exhausted after guarding the Raj and ruling the natives of the vast dusty plains Today many Indians who visit these “hill stations” to escape the heat and dust of the plains and have a nice little holiday grow all dewy-eyed over the great legacy of sprawling bungalows churches and other stately buildings the British left behind for India in 1947 After 70 years few realise that there is a whole history of a steady and well thought-out erasure of local histories and forests and the brutal subjugation of the indigenous people that the exercise entailed Using the epistemological stance of the natives Pradhan painstakingly presents a vast and rare treasure culled from oral sources and various kinds of archival material By adding to these facts located through her numerous field trips she manages to connect several dots between empire space and culture The matrix thus created offers many rare and insightful stories that take us beyond the usual analysis limited to rural-urban and hill-plains divides and record the lopsided socio-economic development of India’s permanently scarred socially reoriented and frequently deforested hill stations Over a century that created the basic template (followed even by the government of India) for “development” in the hilly areas The colonisers to be sure were not a monolithic category There were several who cared deeply about the flora and fauna and the human beings who had lived in harmony with each other for centuries But colonial rule was a complex matrix ruled by the money ethic And even when local papers and journals began regularly to carry articles questioning some exceedingly questionable steps taken in the name of development and containing native protesters the overarching colonial aim remained unwavering The hills cool scenically soothing and picturesque spaces that they were urgently required to be recreated into a sort of gated community for the white colonisers to retire into after long hot stints in the plains Here as they shed their fatigue and enjoyed a bit of fishing and a bit of shikar and horse-riding they would plan and develop clever strategies to maintain and mine this vast land through the next century From amongst a long list of such hill stations Pradhan has selected only four: Shimla Ooty Mount Abu and Darjeeling They were selected we are told by the author because they were all summer capitals in colonial India and as such they offer precious “insights into the workings of the policies of the Empire and the strategic position of these hill stations in the imperial scheme of things” She could one feels have considered selecting at least one more hill station from Uttarakhand which housed the summer capital of the vast United Provinces and was also the largest hill camp for the Queen’s armies Be that as it may Pradhan has done well to also include the colourful and intrigue-laden social whirl these stations enjoyed during the busy summer season which became the less serious (but important nevertheless) aspect of running the empire in the plains from the hills The work on developing these hill capitals began early in the 19th century and there seems to be a direct connection between the urbanistaion of hills through “creative destruction” and capital accumulation by the imperial government through rents taxes private property development and chains of banks post and telegraph centres and coversion of the population into wage labour to feed the vast British political and military system Pradhan is quick to point out with solid evidence how the present ecological crisis in our hills may basically be due to a deeply flawed development paradigm followed by the colonial masters who encouraged extensive use of timber even for infrastructure development in the plains Thus the irreversible destruction of pristine forests began Their pretty summer capitals also necessitated the heartless displacement of indigenous tribes and the rural economy This and a total destruction of traditional methods of managing forests and water resources were to have distrous consequences later It is to Pradhan’s credit that she has also taken care to meticulously record the complexities tensions conflicts and resistance that arose around issues of providing proper health care and sanitation for the inhabitants along clearly demarcated racial lines The core of the book lies in the realisation that the British colonial power all through the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century bulldozed its way into the hill areas without so much as by your leave In the process it reconstituted and reorganised both the topography and also the lives of original inhabitants as required by the imperial template for development forged by men far removed from the daily lives of the natives It ejected the locals from ownership of land and forests to create urban structures that suited the British mode of life An ecologically sensitive region was thus overburdened with motorable roads that delivered the colonial masters’ families to a life of leisure with sports institutions health resorts and large bungalows run by a host of natives employed as menials As the officials carried out their brainstormings in the salubrious climate from vast buildings that housed the government secretariats they also created permanent binaries between the rulers and the ruled between leisure and work development and ecological degradation and the first socio-cultural chasms between those who have the power to buy out the locals demolish their humble lifestyles and then use them as daily wage labour These socio-cultural divides still remain Only the colonial masters have now been replaced by the idle Indian rich who are again displacing the natives and driving them to seek employment in the plains while they enjoy their summer sojourn in the hill estates they have acquired Empire in The Hills is a sombre chronicle of spoliation of the degradation of an immense habitat and of how those that do the despoiling may believe that they are developing a backward area We Indians would do well to remember that our hills forests and rivers are neither infinite nor eternal and colonising them in the name of development urbanisation or tourism is killing them with fake kindness The writer is a Delhi-based journalist and former chairperson of Prasar Bharati For
