Africans were 1st American’s?

Book that knocks on the Clovis theory, however. The Clovis theory still holds to be true with recent discoveries of 12,000+ year old remains as listed in my other posts.

Instead, I do believe that around the same time the Clovis ancestors were arriving, we also had African’s arriving in South America, which may have contributed to the Olmec civilization.

Ancestral DNA of US who identify as African, European, Asian, or Hispanic

My kids are of Mexican and Caucasian descent, and I was thinking about how native American’s are allowed to call themselves native to the US, but Mexican’s are not considered as part of Native American ancestry (at least for benefit’s derived from being a part of a native US tribe), so I wanted to see how much of their DNA was Native American (defined outside of state lines).
