Giant Underwater Cave Was Hiding Oldest Human Skeleton in the Americas | Expedition Raw


>>ALBERTO NAVA: I mean, you’re always looking
for something new to discover, but we didn’t know what we were going to find when
we started on that day. Most of our dives are pretty routine, you
know, you just keep finding more tunnels and more tunnels. But every so often you get lucky and you run
into these discoveries that have been trapped there for thousands of years. We just pop up into this huge void. It’s like if you entered the Grand Canyon
from the side at night. Everywhere you point your light, there were
animal remains, there were human remains. It was just a pretty good day. Eventually my friend points his light toward
this cranium, and all of a sudden we discover the most complete and the oldest human remains
found in the Americas. Imagine the pressure if somebody says, “Okay,
you go pick up the cranium of the oldest human remains in America.” Your hands start shaking. You know, what happens if you drop it? You know, you’re underwater and you’re
looking at this cranium and you see these dark eye sockets. I have this feeling these eyes have not seen
anything since thousands of years ago. You’re kind of traveling back in time. In the case of Naia, we have most of her skeleton. The more amazing thing is that you still have
intact DNA that researchers can extract from. So that helps you figure out the migration
history from humans into the Americas. When we go into this cave, we think that we’re
doing this great exploration, but in reality, the original explorers of this cave were Naia
and her people. When I have a bad day, either in the jungle
or at home, I compare it with what they struggle. . . to go and find water, and food, and shelter,
every day. And they have to fight animals. You know, they have the saber-toothed cat. So for me it’s easy—if I have a problem,
I just think about them and I’m like, oh, my problem, it’s not very big. [laughs] Hoyo Negro and Naia are the stars of this
project, and we all work to bring their stories light so we understand a little bit better
about where do we come from.

  1. imagine you die in a cave and sometime in the future like 13000 years later humans find this cave underwater thats just so amazing

  2. Native Americans came from Siberia. How's that a secret. Modern Siberians and modern Native Americans share similar haplogroup.

  3. WHO BELIEVE YOU CAN USE THE WORD "Oldest", and NOT BE SPEAKING OF SO-CALLED BLACK PEOPLE???? SEE..THIS IS THAT BRAINWASHING RACIST BS! LOOK HOW THEY DID THAT " Black Pharaohs". BLACK PHARAOHS?? LIKE THOSE PEOPLE WEREN'T BLACK, LONG BEFORE ANY OUTSIDE INVASIONS. I DON'T BUY THIS BS AT ALL. NO DAMN SO-CALLED ASIAN CAME HERE BEFORE BLACK PEOPLE, SO THEY CAN SAVE THIS DISTORTED LIE! #GTFOH

  4. Is this not the same area where the giant asteroid hit, that wiped out the dinosaurs, 65 million years ago? Perhaps Naia was looking for fossils before she became one?

  5. anyone else thing its weird that they had a case that seemed to already but fit to the size of the bones? that they supposedly are just discovering? ++++++++++++++++ FAKE ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  6. Notice they dont show the face right side up. The show it upside down with the Mandible (bottom jaw) missing.

  7. She lost her light looking for water…and then in the darkness got lost and plunged to her death…I believe they said she had busted her pelvis ..pretty sure she either struck the side of the cave or something in the water when she fell over 100 feet..

  8. How is it that the bones fit into the suitcases so perfectly? There were indention marks that the pieces fit into exactly. 1:49 to 1:59

  9. So this tunnel was a dark trap for many iceage animals?
    They all plunged to their deaths? Incredible what bones say about the past. This discovery alone, in the least, says that the terrain looked different as it was not underwater.

  10. Holy Micro Underwater Labs Batman!! They just happened to take along a research table all the way down at the bottom of the ocean, and not to mention, A duster, one should never go diving without it.
