Well, hmmm ... The most accepted theory was that the Clovis people slowly died out as they migrated south, and the First Nations or aboriginal peoples we know in North America came from northern Asia in a subsequent wave of migration: now we know that is only true for the Northern Canadian peoples. Very interesting!

Thanks, Marty.
