Noble Savage is a Jewish myth.

For thoroughness: Under the pre-history link on the Noble Savage myth in Wikipedia it links to Michel de Montaigne as a primary source of the idea. From his section on early life: his father's family is thought to have had some degree of Marrano (Spanish and Portuguese Jewish) origins,[9] while his mother, Antoinette López de Villanueva, was a convert to Protestantism.[10] His maternal grandfather, Pedro Lopez,[11] from Zaragoza, was from a wealthy Marrano (Sephardic Jewish) family who had converted to Catholicism
