Where did the native Americans come from via the great land bridge of the ice age? I’m sure there are other theories.
That’s the “theory” they taught me when I was a kid.
I think it’s bunk. I subscribe to the idea most came up from South America and those folks came from Asia across the ocean.
I didn't come here though; I was born here.
There are other theories and compelling evidence to make the claim that the first people here didn’t originate from the steppes of central Asia but from the Scandinavian countries, skirting Greenland and down along the eastern seaboard of present day Nova Scotia and Maine in ships. Most likely Vikings or other Europeans.
And as the newer arrivals came, they pushed the weaker ones out of their homes or killed them.
How else can you explain people in South America living up in the mountains rather than in Acapulco. Did they say, wow, that looks like a nice cold, desolate mountain to live on compared to this sunny, warm place!
Native Americans from the West Coast came from Asia, from the East Coast they came from Europe.
