Nordicists say that the Aryans, the Indo-Europeans, had blonde hair and blue eyes. Though, recent genetic evidence shows that the origin of the Indo-European language is from the Russian steppe, originating from the Yamnaya people. The originators of the Indo-European languages weren’t blonde-haired and blue-eyed, but dark-haired and dark-eyed. Better known as the ‘Kurgan Hypothesis’, this is now the leading theory for the origin of Indo-European people.

Haak et al (2016) showed that at the beginning of the Neolithic period in Europe (approximately 7 to 8 kya) that a closely related group of farmers appeared in Germany, Hungary, and Spain. These ancient populations were different from the indigenous peoples from the Russian steppe, the Yamnaya, who showed high affinity with a 24000-year-old Siberian sample. Approximately 5 to 6 kya, farmers throughout Europe had more hunter-gatherer ancestry than their predecessors from the early Neolithic, but the Yamnaya from the Russian steppe were descended from the Eastern European hunter-gatherers, but also from a population with Near East ancestry (Ancient North Eurasians, ANE). Further, the migration of haplotypes R1b and R1a traveled into Europe 5000 years ago.

The Late Neolithic Corded Ware culture from Germany trace approximately 75 percent of their ancestry to the Yamnaya, which confirms a massive migration from Eastern Europe to the heartland of the continent 4500 years ago. This ancestry from the Yamnaya persisted in all of the Europeans sampled up until approximately 3000 years ago, and is common in all modern-day Europeans. The researchers then conclude that this provides evidence for a steppe origin for some of the Indo-European languages from Europe.

As mentioned above, Haber et al (2016) show how, as I alluded to above, that the Yamnaya people share  distant ancestry with the Siberians, which is probably the source of one of the three ancient populations that contributed to the modern-day European gene pool (Ancient North Eurasians, West European hunter-gatherers, and Early European farmers from Western Asia with the fourth population being the Yamnaya people).

Olade et al (2015) show that since the Basque people speak a pre-Indo-European language that this indicates that the expansion of Indo-European languages is unlikely to have begun during the early Neolithic (7 to 8 kya). They, like Haak et al, conclude that it’s in agreement with the hypothesis of the Indo-European languages coming out of the East, the Russian steppe, around 4500 years ago which is associated with the spread of Indo-European languages into Western Europe.

Finally, it is known that the Yamnaya people had dark skin (relative to today’s Europeans), dark hair, and dark eyes. Knowing what is presented in this article, this directly goes against the Nordicist fantasy of the blue-eyed, blonde-haired Indo-Europeans. Nordicists also like to claim that the Indo-Europeans had blonde hair and blue eyes, when genetic evidence goes directly against this claim:

For rs12913832, a major determinant of blue versus brown eyes in humans, our results indicate the presence of blue eyes already in Mesolithic hunter-gatherers as previously described. We find it at intermediate frequency in Bronze Age Europeans, but it is notably absent from the Pontic-Caspian steppe populations, suggesting a high prevalence of brown eyes in these individuals.

Further, the Yamnaya were a tall population. Since the Yamnaya had a greater genotypic height, it stands to reason that Northern European populations have more Yamnaya ancestry.

The Yamnaya herded cattle and other animals, buried their dead in mounds called kurgans, and may have created some of the world’s first wheeled vehicles. They were a nomadic population that, some linguists say, had a word for wheel. The massive migration into Western Europe from the Russian steppe contributed large amounts of North Asian ancestry in today’s Europeans. The Yamnaya are also shown to be the fourth ancient population that is responsible for modern-day Europeans.

Modern-day genetic testing is shattering all of these myths that are told about the origins of Europeans and Proto-Indo-European peoples and languages. The ACTUAL basis for most PIE languages is from the Russian steppe, from a relatively (to modern Europe) dark-skinned, dark-haired, and dark-eyed people who then spread into Europe 4500 years ago.

The Nordicist fantasies of the Aryans, the originators of Proto-Indo-European languages has been put to rest. It was originally proposed based off of myths and stories, mostly from ancient Indo-European cultures who were situated thousands of miles away from the original Indo-Europeans (the Yamnaya).

The Kurgan Hypothesis is now the theory that’s largely accepted by the scientific community as being the homeland of the Proto-Indo-Europeans. The Yamnaya people now make a fourth founding population for Europeans, with the other three being West European hunter-gatherers, Ancient North Eurasians, and Early European Farmers.

    Light skin brown eyes and second for the same reason – feminine selection. and spead across teh entire eurasian plain from spain to china. From here all indo european cultures seem to split and evolve separately.

    Yamna in the urheimat are pushed west into poland and the baltics by the S tribe, but eventually reclaim their territory.

    (third wave)
    Lighter, varied hair evolved third (it appears) for the same reason – feminine selection. The nordics and the Rus are the least ‘polluted’ european gene pools. so the myth is not false in the sense that they represent our ‘best’ gene pools, and the myth that the ancients were blonde, red, brown, and dark brown, and now rarely black, is merely a consequence of the DESIRABILITY OF PEDOMORPHIC evolution in whites. in other words, lighter, thinner, taller, women are more desirable. And this is what we see in the data.

      No it’s not. Everything I’ve said is scientific.

      Sexual selection was a driver in blue eyes, but blue eyes originated near the Black Sea 10kya.

      You do know that the originators of the proto-Indo-European languages were the Yamnaya, dark-skinned (relative to today’s Europeans) and dark eyes and hair, this came out back in May. When the Yamna moved out of the Russian steppe 6500 ya, THIS is when the modern-day European phenotype coalesced, with the admixture from three populations. Moreover, there is the Anatolian hypothesis in which some of the PIE languages came out of the Middle East. Hell, the Yamnaya went south as well and into India. You know the ‘lost tribe of whites’ that alt-righters like to talk about, like the Nuristani and the Kalash people?

      Wow!! Whites in the ME!! But wait…… They are genetically closer to South Asians and the ONLY reason they look similar to Europeans is because the phenotypes we racially code are recent. Quoting Razib Khan:

      The final issue is that a lot of the phenotypes that we racially code are recent. This probably explains why groups like the Kalash and Nuristanis can look more like Europeans than South Asians, but they’re genetically more like South Asians.

      Also here’s a nice bonus for you since you seem to believe myths:

      i knew the pre-WN richard spencer (we lost touch after his ideological changes ~2010). he’s smart. i have a hard time believing he doesn’t know the latest research, which was evening starting to be evident back then. so i think it’s myth-making.

      p.s. a friend of mine sent me a link to a richard spencer interview with kevin macdonald last year i think, pointing to a specific segment of the podcast talking about ancient genetics. kevin was telling richard how europeans 40,000 years ago were white, and those are the ancestors of europeans. that’s wrong.

      Myth-making.

      Yamna in the urheimat are pushed west into poland and the baltics by the S tribe, but eventually reclaim their territory.

      The Yamna invaded; they were a warrior culture. They were the last population to make up modern-day Europeans.

      The nordics and the Rus are the least ‘polluted’ european gene pools. so the myth is not false in the sense that they represent our ‘best’ gene pools,

      ….I’m convinced that alt-righters are retarded. What do you mean by ‘least polluted European gene pool’? What ‘best gene pools’? You do know that superiority is a retarded notion biologically speaking right? Claiming what you’re claiming means that evolution would be ‘progressive’, it however is NOT progressive.

      the myth that the ancients were blonde, red, brown, and dark brown, and now rarely black, is merely a consequence of the DESIRABILITY OF PEDOMORPHIC evolution in whites.

      Rarely brown, rarely black? Did you even read the Dienekes article I linked:

      For rs12913832, a major determinant of blue versus brown eyes in humans, our results indicate the presence of blue eyes already in Mesolithic hunter-gatherers as previously described. We find it at intermediate frequency in Bronze Age Europeans, but it is notably absent from the Pontic-Caspian steppe populations, suggesting a high prevalence of brown eyes in these individuals.

      The Pontic-Caspian steppe populations=the Yamna.

      lighter, thinner, taller, women are more desirable. And this is what we see in the data.

      Yes sexual selection occurs but this says nothing about the Yamna being the last population to make up modern-day Europeans.

      Give this paper a read. You’re wrong. The Nordic phenotype didn’t appear until ~5kya. As I said, it’s a Nordicist fantasy that Nords were ‘Aryan’. It’s 2016 bro, the data is out there for you to read to see that you’re wrong and not hold on to these fantasies. Moreover, Nordic traits are recent so ancestry is less important than you think. Are you a race-realist or a race-mythist?

    The individual and group that is best suited for the present environment is “superior.”

    • RaceRealist says:

      What you’re talking about is arbitrary. Then when the environment changes, that group is no longer ‘superior’ and it either has to change phenotypically or die. Organisms are either fit or unfit, not ‘superior/inferior’. The fact that environments constantly change and an organism will change based on the environmental changes or die out shows that superiority does not exist between organisms. It’s just organisms surviving, that’s it. And they will survive if and when the environment changes.

      Would you say that ‘best suited’ for the present environment would be biological fitness?

    So, we should look at politics as a debate over whether we should manipulate the social and economic environment, and if true, then a debate over which traits should be favored.

      I agree. Like giving incentives for women to have children would be a good start. Say a tax break? Something along those lines. I believe our environment should be as close as possible to our ancestral environment–while still having the comfort of modernity of course. Though that’d need some delicate balancing.

    Still implying Yamnaya are PIE

    Yamnaya are one of many Indo-European groups. The main scholar on PIE, the Lithuanian broad, suggested PIE was most likely Khvalynsk/Sredny Stog. Yamnaya are simply one of the first mass graves to be studied, they were one of the IE groups who likely had heavy contact with Makyop and Caucasus people, and were not around when significant IE invasions/events may have happened. Look up Bell Beakers, Unetice, Urnfield, Sintashta, Andronovo if you want IE groups that were actually around when European civilizations started forming.

    To the Italian retard. Yamnaya are identified as LATE PIE according to the Kurgan hypothesis. Stredny strog and Khvalynsk are early PIE…they domesticated the horse but they didnt have wheeled vehicles like Yamnaya did. The wheel is ubiquitous in Indo European vocabulary and is considered by linguists to be crucial to late or classical PIE culture. As for proto Italics theyre dated to like 800 BC well more than 2000 years after late Proto Indo European existed. So no one knows their phenotype or ethnic or ancestral composition. But regarding the late proto Indo Europeans we know they were darker eyed and skinned than present southern Europeans, they were genetically tall, and they were roughly a 50/50 ancestral mix of local Eastern European Hunter Gatherers and newly arrived Caucasus Hunter Gatherers.
