Best Answer

White myths and lore say that the American Indians came across the Bering strait from Russia or perhaps, they came from Asia, or perhaps parts of Africa. Next year some other country will lay claim to the American Indian. So far there has been no evidence that the American Indian came from any other country.

American Indians believe that the Creator put them on these lands since time began. This is a far more logical answer since they have dug up pottery that predates the Ice Age by several thousands of years right on these lands.
