It appears they have a long history, even before Europeans settled in the US.



Archeologists have unearthed what looks like a cone-shaped alien skull from 1,000 years ago in Mexico.

The skull, which dates from 945 A.D. to 1308 A.D., was discovered accidentally while digging an irrigation system in the northwest state of Sonora in Mexico.

Right skull shape, wrong border.

Do you think after taking the picture, that the archaeologists removed the skull from the spine, and began tossing it around like a football?  Wrap that thing in a pigskin, and you could hurl it 50 yards easy.  :;):

Skull manipulation was quite common back then. Pretty neat nonetheless.

I believe many Native American favored "flattened" heads -- and attached boards to the heads of their babies to achieve the effect.  Quite amazing just how far back a society's customs and traditions can be traced.

Separately, to me, the use of the term "deform" suggests inappropriate judgment.  Yes, it is a wholly artificial process.  OTOH, how many Beverly Hills 'surgeons' would use that term to characterize their own practice?   ???

Or, as told in the book of Enoch, Nephillim or fallen angels came down and bred with human women. Scary either way.
