"Some anthropologists have suggested (Neves & Pucciarelli 1991; Neves et al. 1996) that Paleoindians must have come across the sea from the Pacific Islands because their crainia are more like those from the Pacific Islands than they are like present northeastern Asian populations or Amerindians (Roosevelt 2002)."

By 1999 Neves had clearly changed his mind about sea crossings (or Roosevelt misquoted him, either way everyone is free to look up her 1991 and 1996 references):
[www.nytimes.com]
Luzia's Negroid features notwithstanding, Dr. Neves is not arguing that her ancestors came to Brazil from Africa in an early trans-Atlantic migration. Instead, he believes they originated in Southeast Asia, "migrating from there in two directions, south to Australia, where today's aboriginal peoples may be their descendants, and navigating northward along the coast and across the Bering Straits until they reached the Americas."

The fact remains Neves had it wrong (contradicted by the latest DNA studies):
"The finds, along with recent discoveries in North America like those of the so-called Kennewick Man and Spirit Cave Man, are forcing a reassessment of long-established theories as to the settling of the Americas. Based on such evidence, Dr. Neves suggests that Luzia belonged to a nomadic people who began arriving in the New World as early as 15,000 years ago."

So when he lumped Kennewick Man into his bogus skull metrics scheme he proved the value of his work...valueless.
