I'm looking for primary sources in which the author(s) commit scientistic fallacies when speaking about Native Americans.

I'm working my way through S.G. Morton's Crania Americana, which is close, but the appendix in this, regarding physiognomy, by George Combe is even closer.

Could anyone tell me any more examples of where a border-crossing violation (Peterson, Demarcation and the Scientistic Fallacy), that is to say when someone tries to expand their field of science onto something that isn't actually covered by it, occurs.

Thanks :)
