A friend who is Hopi/Paiute and a tribal elder says they came west from Florida not south from the Bering Strait.

And where did he think those Floridians came from?
Interesting. The Piute, as you probably know, are a branch of the Ute whereas the Hopi are related to the Pueblo group (including Zuni). Both consider themselves as a more advanced civilization than their neighbors such as the Apache or Navajo, who likely were driven to survive by raiding their neighbors after being driven out of their ancestral homelands to the south and east, probably by tribes escaping the advance of the Aztec.
First I have heard about the Florida route, though I would not utterly discount it. What a lot of people fail to realize is that oceanic navigation skills will be quickly lost after a couple of generations on non-use by migrating civilizations.
