AWKWARD: New DNA Analysis Reveals Original Native Americans Were White

It makes sense that any who actually came through by the northern route would share genetics across the whole sub arctic. That same mix surely filled the Northern woodlands  As can easily be demonstrated by comparing photos of a typical Tibetan crowd shot and similar shots of many native groups.

Then you add in a continuing influx across the Atlantic since at least 2500 BC that was never interrupted at all and all present claims are complete nonsense. only massive DNA meta statisitics will be able to sort it all out and the skills are still in infancy.

Additional movement also took place along the Pacific Rim from Japan at the least back though thousands of years which also support much earlier dates for movement across the Atlantic.. 

AWKWARD: New DNA Analysis Reveals Original Native Americans Were White 

Posted on January 15, 2018

Comments An infant who lived at the end of the last ice age in present day Alaska belonged to a previously unknown group of ancient humans most closely related to modern day white Europeans.

In 2013, during excavations of an 11,500-year-old residential camp in Central Alaska, researchers discovered the remains of a six week old girl, but full DNA testing only now became available.

The results revealed the child had a distinct genetic makeup from northern and southern Native Americans and was part of a group of early humans called the Beringians, according to a study published in the journal Nature.

The Beringians split from Europeans around 20,000 years ago and came to North America over an ice bridge connecting Eurasia to Alaska via the Bering Strait. As the ice caps melted at the end of the last ice age, the Beringians moved southward and mixed with other Native American populations, according to researchers.

According to the University of Copenhagen’s Eske Willerslev, who worked with scientists at the University of Alaska, nearly half of the ancient girl’s DNA came from the north Europeans who lived in present day Scandinavia. The rest of her genetic makeup was an even mix of that carried by the northern and southern Native Americans.

Using evolutionary models, the researchers showed that the ancestors of the first Native Americans started to emerge as a distinct population about 35,000 years ago. About 25,000 years ago, this group mixed and bred with ancient north Asians in the region, the descendants of whom went on to become the first white Europeans to settle the New World.

One theory, supported by Willerslev, states white Europeans traveled to North America in a single wave of migration 20,000 years ago. While those who settled in the north became the Beringians, others moved south some 15,700 years ago and split into the northern and southern Native Americans.

Another theory states that white Europeans mixed with Asians before crossing the Bering Strait over the frozen land bridge.

The remains of the girl, named Xach’itee’aanenh t’eede gaay or “sunrise child-girl” by locals, were found alongside two other children, a younger child whose DNA could not be tested and a third who had been cremated. At the burial site at least three tent structures were found and an ancient hearth probably used for cooking salmon caught in a nearby river.
