American Indian DNA mixed with ancient Caucasian DNA
The evidence is boiling over and can not be contained any more. Caucasians were among the earliest inhabitants of North America. Leading experts now strongly believe that Caucasians probably arrived hundreds of years before the first Asiatic people crossed the Bearing Straight. This has been covered in documentaries for the BBC, National Geographic, the Learning Channel, and more.
A genetic analysis has shown that Northern European people are a mixture of two very different ancestral populations – and one of these populations is related to Native Americans.
The discovery applies to the British, Scandinavians, French and some Eastern Europeans, and explains some genetic similarities among what would otherwise seem to be very divergent groups.
“There is a genetic link between the paleolithic population of Europe and modern Native Americans,” says Nick Patterson of the Genetic Society of America.
“The evidence is that the population that crossed the Bering Strait from Siberia into the Americas more than 15,000 years ago was likely related to the ancient population of Europe.”
By examining DNA, his team found that one of these ancestral populations was the first farming population of Europe, whose DNA lives on today in relatively unmixed form in Sardinians and the people of the Basque Country, as well as the Druze population in the Middle East.
