Ice Age Babies Buried in Alaska Reveals Early Genetic Diversity in North America The findings, published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, add weight to the idea that people settled in the area around the Bering Strait for as long as 10,000 years before moving farther south. This idea is called the Beringian Standstill hypothesis, named for the region, Beringia, where the ancient migration would have paused for thousands of years.

The ruins of Puma Punku are one of four structures in the ancient city of Tiahuanaco. The others three structures are; The Akapana Pyramid, the Kalasasaya Platform, and the Subterranean Temple. Even with modern day technology and information, these structures defy logic, and confound those who seek to solve the mysteries that lie within them. The ruins of Puma Punku are said to be the most fascinating, and most confusing of all.

These carved wooden dolls probably served as playthings for children and date to between 1540 and 1650. Archaeologists found the large doll (top row, center) on the beach near the site. Wooden artifacts at the site were preserved because they were embedded in permafrost, which has begun to melt in recent decades.

An Inupiat Eskimo family from Alaska in 1929, whose ancestors would have crossed Beringia thousands of years previously.

There are 2 theories as to how the first people arrived in the Americas: 1. Hunters followed herds of bison and mammoths across a land bridge between Siberia and Alaska, which is where the Bering Strait is today. After crossing the bridge, they then traveled south through North America and into Central and South America. 2. People migrated along coastal routes by possibly paddling small boats.

This is a power point presentation that talks about the different cultural groups of Native Americans and the early migratory patterns they followed, from the time of the land bridge, Beringia, that disappeared, breaking apart Asia from North America.
