Update Paracas "elongated skulls" (not Alien but Siberian)

This article: "Russian origin of Peruvian elongated skulls?" by Will Hart, concludes that "the skulls probably originated in the Altai region of southern Siberia" it cites his investigations with Brien Foerster.

The article is interesting, but I disagree with the following point:

"There are other controversial issues that the Paracas skulls have raised. Without a doubt the individuals that had these skulls were not members of any native tribe. No Peruvian groups have red hair. We have also analyzed the results of ABO blood group studies and found they have blood groups A and B.
The Inca and other tribes were 100% type O+ positive, a fact that has long been known by anthropologists. They simple do not the prevailing theory and so have been dismissed for decades as genetic anomalies.

Because, there also are A blood group mummies in Peru according to: Am J Phys Anthropol. 1978 Jul;49(1):139-42. ABO blood groups in Chilean and Peruvian mummies. II. Results of agglutination-inhibition technique. by Allison MJ, Hossaini AA, Munizaga J, Fung R.

So it is not a 100% O blood group region.

The article mentions Huns, Denisovans and the fact that Paracas skulls have red hair (do they or is it merely bleaching as time goes by? or probably other factors... read this article for more on the hair of Paracas mummies (from - the hair in the photos looks dark or even black to me.

Furthermore, head binding was practiced not only by huns and Paracas people, it was quite common all over the globe: in Asia, Australia, Africa and also in other parts of America (see this great article with photos).

At least Hart and Foerster don't believe that these are alien skulls!
