Genetic Proof for First Americans Disproves any Trans-Atlantic Migrations.
Professors Jennifer Raff and Deborah Bolnick has written report for the journal PaleoAmerica on the First Americans. She points out that all of the genetic data from mitochondrial and genomic material gathered thus far on who they were points to migrations from Siberia, and does not show evidence of any Trans-Atlantic migrations. The Solutrean hypothesis about early migrations from Europe are not supported by any solid genetic data. The argument made about the X2a haplogroup found in Kennewick Man being of European origin is put to rest by the recent more complete study showing Kennewick Man had no proof of any European ancestry through his entire genome.
(My note; The haplogroup referred to is found in the Altaic region of Siberia as well as Europe. The rest of the genomes in any study like this will tell the origins of the First Americans. And all of that evidence shows an Asiatic origin, coming right down to the genetic studies of modern Native Americans).
