News: Science Magazine now supports belief that most Native Americans came by boat
For 15 years, People of One Fire founding member and our expert on DNA, Ric Edwards, has been saying this. Edwards is also convinced that many of the immigrants came by boat from northwestern Siberia and northern Scandinavia. It is just as easy or easier to cross to the Americas from that direction.
Now people in the scientific community are listening. An article in Science Magazine states, “Most archaeologists now believe that the majority of the ancestors of Native Americans came by boat and much earlier than 12,000 BC.” What few academicians considered for many decades was that the ocean levels were MUCH lower during the last Ice Age. Evidence for the first humans in the Americas can be as much as 100 miles out from the current coastline. This is certainly the case along the South Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coast line.
