    The first Americans may have been Japanese?

    There has been suggestions that the first Americans may have been from Europe,Siberia,Australia but there was a discovery of a spearhead in 1933 near Clovis in New Mexico next to the remains of a wooly mammoth. The (Clovis people) spread may have coincided with the extinction of species such as the giant Armadillo, the great black bear and the giant sloth.

    The Clovis spearhead has been the starting point for many debates about the first Americans and has been said that they likely reached their by 10,000 BC. Did anyone get their sooner?

    There was a long standing belief that the first people came from Siberia but there is a possibility that they came by sea from Japan after comparing modern and prehistoric skulls.

    Luzia Woman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This supports your assertion that the first peoples may have been Native Ainu how?

    The Jomon have been seen to have similar skulls etc to established North Americans. The only Link for Luiza could be had in the debate as to which route they came from. A study published in 2001 put the focus back on the Northern route. The Jomon and the Ainu who are the American cousins of the Sioux the Blackfoot and the Cherokee. There is also mention of them passing in waves and not leaving any archeological evidence on record as such.
