Who are the first Americans? In the 1920s and 30s, discoveries made near Clovis, NM suggested a prehistoric Paleo-Indian culture that dates back nearly 13,200 years ago. But new evidence may actually point to Texas as a possible origin. Archaeologist Wilson W. "Dub" Crook has found that may just change the way we see history.

Rethinking the First Americans. Presented by Wilson "Dub" Crook | AllenCityTV | Published on May 6, 2015
In nine parts, here's the playlist link:
Yes, of course there may have been other groups of humans in the new world before the land bridge peoples arrived. It is just that the land bridge people were the ones who made a lasting impression on the Americas. Earlier groups may have been from Europe or Asia or Pacific Oceana.
With regards to the land bridge peoples: some of those Asians who crossed over the land bridge into the Americas may have included Indo-Europeans who were a part of the group who walked across the land bridge into what is now Alaska and Canada.
I had watched that vid a few days ago.
One thing that occurred to me. Those “almost Clovis” points and tools, might have been the product of a less skilled individual of the same culture. Maybe someone in a smaller group that didn’t have the benefit of being able to have specialists and didn’t have a deep talent pool to draw from.
a less skilled individual of the same culture
I think he actually said that it was the prevailing speculation, more or less. :^).

Was that in the Q&A part?
I didn’t listen to that part. The first questioner, leaned back in his chair, trying to look all cool and shiznit, droning on trying to sound smart...
Reminded me too much of me in your threads and pissed me off.
Apparently thre are three distinct groups of Denisovians:
* Group One = Siberia
* Group Two = SE Asia
* Group 3 = Pacific Islands
I think the American Indians are related to the Siberian group of Denisovians.
An American is someone with a mindset of personal liberty, not someone on a land mass.
I agree, but personal-liberty-minded-American seemed redundant when I typed it. :^)
They're everywhere, they're everywhere! ;^)
My DNA results showed "<1% Native American" (and quibble -- I was born here, so I am Native American) to which I said, aloud, even though I lived alone, yeah, much less than 1%. The anomaly showed up when I uploaded my raw file to the archaic DNA project -- I was curious about my Neandertal roots -- and the <1% was actually PaleoEskimo.
My guess is, that isn't because I have ancestors among that earlier coat of paint which was wiped out by the Na-Dene and whomever else are Johnny-Come-Relatively-Latelies in the great white north, but because of my 45,000 year old Siberian DNA (from Ust'-Ishim) which is either ancestral to the PaleoE's or has common roots. Oh, just for laughs, I think that's also where the Denisovan DNA hitchhiked into my heritage, and maybe the Neandertals as well.
This isn’t the page I saw a couple years ago, but right track I think:
