A team of geneticists are claiming they have found DNA evidence which proves the existence of a previously unknown mystery species that lived and interbred with the ancestors of modern humans. A species that may have "lingered in Africa" until about 25,000 years ago. Interesting stuff, especially when another team claims to have similar evidence that Neanderthals reached Asia.
Of course, paleoanthropologists are poo-pooing the whole thing because they haven't found any, well, poo-poo in the fossil record that would indicate such a species.

Lakota tribe members gather to name rare white bison
I still remember watching Charles Bronson in The White Buffalo
when I was a kid. Bronson played Wild Bill Hickok
(he's completely miscast but come on, it's Charles Bronson) and Will Samson played Crazy Horse.
It's one of those films that has a ton of famous names: Kim Novak, Jack Warden, Clint Walker, Slim Pickens, and John Carradine as an undertaker, the role he was born to play.
