ð Origin of the First Settlers
On foot, the first settlers into the Americas arrived from Siberia via the Bering Land Bridge, also known as, Beringia. â°
At the time, over 10,000 years ago, this bridge was identified as a frozen mass of land which connected Alaska and Eurasia (the combined continents of Europe and Asia) *This theory is currently debateable "Indigenous Peoples are the descendants of the original habitants of a region prior to colonization.
These groups have maintained some or all of their linguistic, cultural and organizational characteristics and consider themselves distinct from the societies currently governing those territories.
Throughout the world, Indigenous Peoples have struggled to co-exist with immigrant peoples who have established settlements in their territories.
History reflects that in many instances, non-Indigenous Peoples (settler populations and their governments) have not adequately respected or supported the sovereignty or cultural values of Indigenous Peoples, which has threatened the survival of these groups." - indigenouspeople.net
