A group of Canadian researchers are conducting an underwater excavasian off the Queen Charlotte islands in British Columbia to find evidence of the first North American settlers. These scientists believe that the first people to touch down in these here parts weren’t Siberian big-game hunters but Asian seafarers.
(Their theory) holds that ancient Asian seafarers, drawn on by food-rich kelp beds ringing the Pacific coasts of present-day Russia, Alaska and British Columbia, began populating this hemisphere thousands of years before the migration of Siberian big-game hunters – who are known to have travelled across the dried up Bering Strait and down an ice-free corridor east of the Rockies as the last glaciers began retreating about 13,000 years ago.
That’s, like, totally cool, because either way is a win for us. Yaysian!
