Anthropologists have collected evidence showing that native American people are related to Russia’s indigenous Siberians – they share many similar features related to appearance, religion, and language.
Russian scientists have uncovered the most important proof after carrying out a genetic study of a 24,000-year-old human skeleton found in Siberia, which is now housed in St.Petersburg’s famous Hermitage Museum. They discovered that the DNA of the boy’s remains has genetic ties to the DNA of modern Native Americans. That means Paleoamericans had migrated through Bering Strait thousands of years ago.
