Actually, considering a prehistoric timescale, it is possible they crossed the Bering Strait, when frozen during the glaciation, from Siberia.


The first American Indians came from Asia to North America between 11-12,000 years ago via a land bridge over the Bering Straits. They made their way through what is now Alaska and then followed an ice-free highway down the continent. Their culture has been named Clovis.
