Indeed, this is a great example of a very complex—and culturally mediated—human behavior that can’t be reduced to genetics.

Scientists claim that a genetic analysis of the 11,500-year-old remains of an infant girl from Alaska has shed new light on the populating of the Americas.

The new finds suggest that the “Last Frontier” was inhabited way earlier than what we have thought until now.

In what may be one of the greatest discoveries in Alaska’s history, an international team of researchers led by scientists from the University of Cambridge and the University of Copenhagen claims to have discovered the first direct genetic evidence of the earliest Native Americans.

The genetic analysis of the ancient remains of an infant girl from Alaska not only reveals a previously unknown indigenous population, but also indicates that humans traveled across the Beringia land bridge to reach the North American continent in a single migratory wave from Siberia over 20,000 years ago. Eske Willerslev and his colleagues suggest that the pioneering settlers became the ancestors of all contemporary Native Americans.

The scientists successfully sequenced the genome of a six-week-old female infant unearthed at the Upward Sun River site in Alaska and discovered that she’d lived around 11,500 years ago.According to The New York Times , the remains of the girl represent the second-oldest human genome ever discovered in North America.The local Native American community named her Xach'itee'aanenh t'eede gay, which translates to the “Sunrise Child-girl.” The science team refers to her simply as USR1.Curiously, her genetic code didn’t match with any of the two native populations known to exist during that period."These are the oldest human remains ever found in Alaska, but what is particularly interesting here is that this individual belonged to a population of humans that we have never seen before," Dr.Willerslev told The genetic analysis of the girl’s remains pinpoints towards a separation of all ancient Native Americans from a single east Asian source population somewhere between 36,000 to 25,000 years ago, way before humans crossed into Beringia, an area that includes the land bridge connecting Siberia and Alaska at the end of the last ice age.
