Re: “North America's Oldest Evidence of Man?

In Alaska, in 1993,the skeleton of a ancient man was found in a cave on an island in Southeast Alaska. The information from his DNA has been fascinating and further findings point to him coming from a people who came into Alaska following the coast and NOT the Land Bridge. He is dated to have lived around 10,300 years ago. members of tribes living in the area consented to having their DNA compared to his.
Recently, the body of a baby was discovered at another site further north. The DNA from the child has been compared to other DNA to tell if she was the descendant of people who crossed the Land Bridge and they found the child belonged to a hitherto unknown human lineage, a group that split off from other Native Americans just after or perhaps just before they arrived in North America. Her skeleton was dated at 11,500 years old.
Then there is the Kennewick Man found in 1993 and his DNA revelations.
One thing is for sure, the descendants of the bodies found in Alaska are living in Alaska today, proof that they have been part of the Land for thousands of years.
