Skip to comments.Native Americans descended from three Asian groups: study
Posted on 07/11/2012 11:22:20 AM PDT by Theoria
Native Americans spread out today from Canada to the tip of Chile descended not from one but at least three migrant waves from Siberia between 5,000 and 15,000 years ago, a study said Wednesday.
The finding is controversial among geneticists, archaeologists and linguists -- many of whom have maintained that a single Asian ancestral group populated the Americas.
But the new study, claiming to be the most comprehensive analysis yet of Native American genetics, claims to have found incontrovertible proof that there were three immigration waves -- a theory first put forward in 1986.
Most Native Americans, said the study, descend from a single group known as the "First American" which crossed from Asia via the Beringia land bridge towards the end of the last ice age some 15,000 years ago.
Their modern-day descendants include the Algonquin of Quebec, the Yaghan of Tierra del Fuego and the Kaqchikel Maya of Guatemala.
But two later migrations of people closely related to the Han ethnic Chinese were responsible for creating more groups, according to a paper published in the journal Nature.
"Speakers of Eskimo-Aleut languages from the Arctic inherit almost half their ancestry from a second stream of Asian gene flow, and the Na-Dene-speaking Chipewyan from Canada inherit roughly one-tenth of their ancestry from a third stream," it said.
This indicated interbreeding between later immigrants and the First Americans they encountered.
The second and third waves of migrants may have come to America in boats after the Beringia land bridge disappeared under water at the end of the last ice age, human geneticist Andres Ruiz-Linares of University College London's department of genetics, evolution and environment told AFP.

Well, there’s Dot Indians and Feather Indians.
ping to you...
I usually don’t have much luck with the search but this in one source. There was more but I did not look for it.
The provenance of the petroglyph is in severe doubt...
detail from above
Much like other “proofs” of ancient language from the old world this one is either a mismash of unknown characters or a hoax, see

I couldn’t find the Cherokee DNA article.
AT least I didn't send this to myself this time.
The article you are being pointed to is by Donald N. Yates owner of DNA consultants who is a proponent of the highly dubious if not completely fraudulent theory that the Native Americans are descended from Europe . It was a popular belief in the mid 1800’s *see View of the Hebrews by Ethan Smith 1823. It is also propagated by the Mormon church in varying degrees probably due to many statements by founding members to the effect that Hebrews came to the Americas circa 600 B.C.
“Moroni is really Japanese for,,,uh,,,
“I got a girl named Bony Moroni;
she´s as skinny as a stick of macaronie.
Oughta see her rock n roll with her blue jeans on,”
Really just an argument over who got here biggest and strongest.
And who stays longest.
“well, no need to breed like rats.”
By the way, how did they cross the Panama Canal to go into south America to breed? :)
>> “By the way, how did they cross the Panama Canal to go into south America to breed?” <<
By walking across the tops of the lock gates silly!
It has happened before. See the story of Wrong Way Norris
“...the thing is what to call native Americans then. Theyre not Indians.”
I take my opinion on this issue from my step brother, who also happens to be my best friend and the best man I’ve ever known.
His grand mother was a “res” Cherokee.
According to my brother, he’s American. No hyphen needed. No hyphen required. No hyphen tolerated.
What really happened was this: (I just finished doing some research on this.)
These folks who bred like rats could neither swim nor walk on water. Therefore, they trekked across the locks. This was on the Pacific side of the Canal.
As they got off the locks and some yards away, a few got smacked and mashed by a train going to the Atlantic side.
Some managed to escape this tragedy and continued on in their mission to reproduce as if there were no tomorrow until the Spaniards came and wiped most of them out in parts of South America.
And there. I did my homework.
I thought the Zuni had been established as a Japanese line?
He’s a good man and we need more like him.
