The Micmac (Mi'kmaq) of Canada are Ainu and the Ainu originated in the Nile Valley. Not surprisingly, some of the most sacred symbols of the Micmac correspond to ancient Egyptian symbols.
The Ainu were among the aboriginal peoples of the Nile Valley and the rulers of many of the river shrines. One of their shrines was Annu, the original name for Heliopolis (Biblical On), to which the great pyramids were aligned.
The Ainu were seafarers and had a written language which they introduced to the lands where they traveled and settled. They spread from the Nile to Japan. This explains why the Japanese alphabet is almost identical to the Hebrew alphabet. Both are based on the Ainu writing system.
The Ainu of Japan and the Ainu who crossed into North America through Finland, Greenland and Labrador are in the same haplogroup X. The greatest concentrations are indicated by the darker shade. MtDNA traces lineage by the mitochondria, received from the mothers. The dispersion of haplogroup X is shown below.
Note the small dot in Southern Siberia. This is the only known archaic HgX population in that entire region, indicating that the Ainu did not come to North America across the Bering Strait. The Micmac of Canada report that their ancestors came across the north Atlantic.
If Abraham's Ainu ancestors spread far and wide as Genesis 10 reports, we would expect them to be an early stock from which many other modern peoples come. This has been confirmed by Luigi Cavalli-Sforza's genetic distance chart which places the Ainu at the center.
Ainu people had been living in Hokkaido, the northernmost island of Japan, before Japanese people occupied the island. They had their own culture, language, and religion. Their appearance is less Asian. They tend toward a reddish skin tone and have beards. The distinctive headgear and the decorative motifs on their robes are found among all Ainu men, as seen in these photos:
My Ainu friend Sea’Key tells me that the Ainu of eastern Canada have a red skin tone and are bearded. Some have green eyes. The red skin hue may appear as rosy cheeks or a reddish tone over tanned skin like that of Egyptians who work in the sun (I Sam. 16:12; 17:42). King David was described as having this red skin tone. David had Edomite blood.
The Hebrew word for red/ruddy is edom. Edom is equivalent to the Hausa odum, meaning red-brown and to the word Adam, the first man formed from the red clay which washed down to the Upper Nile Valley from the Ethiopian highlands. These soils have a cambic B horizon. Chromic cambisols have a strong red brown color.
Abraham means “burnt father” and refers to his reddish skin color. In Arabic, the word ham
means burnt. The Nilotic peoples were referred to burnt because they had a reddish skin tone. This included some Nubians, as is evidenced from the drawings of Jean-Francois Champollion who led the French-Tuscan Expedition of 1828. One drawing depicts a scene from the Great Temple at As in which some Nubian captives of Ramesses II are black and others are red.

Genesis 10 speaks of the Kushite dispersion and the Ainu likely were among the Kushites who moved out of Africa. However, it is almost certain that there was an earlier Ainu migration before the time of the Kushites.
