    you’re only a third Right.
    Only about 33% of the “Native American” Peoples have a link to Asia.

    The main thinking about the Native Americans is that there are at least 3 distinct peoples, not all from Asia.

    Evidentally the brethren don’t agree with that. They’ve already punted on this topic and have re-worded the BOM intro as a result.

    “Nearly all of today’s Native Americans in North, Central, and South America can trace part of their ancestry to six women whose descendants immigrated around 20,000 years ago, a DNA study suggests.”
