Where Did Native Americans Come From?

So, where did the native Americans come from?

Do you have any idea?

If not, then no worries.

Here I am going to explain to you in-depth that you can understand the complete story step by step.

Short Answer: Native American people came from the northern part of Siberia. Nowadays, a part of the Russian Federation.

So history began 27,000 years ago when the land of today’s America was the home of only animals, reptiles, and birds; but without any human beings.

At that time, our earth slowly started being cold and the ice age was about to begin.

Due to some environmental change in the world, the ice age started first in the Northern part of the earth.

During that time, the human population started living in some parts of Asia, Africa, and the European continent.

Today’s Siberia {today a part of Russia} which we know as a super cold place, was once a little warm and compatible for living humans.

During the time, Mongoloid human race people lived in Siberia.

But because of the newly starting ice age, it started being tough for those people to survive in that landmass.

Therefore those people started moving towards the north part.

Let me tell you that Northern Siberia was quite near to America but its landmass was not connected with the American continent.

There was a sea that existed there, which we know today as the Bering Sea.

Because of the ice age, the sea’s water started transforming into hard ice.

And this natural phenomenon made a geographical connection between Siberia’s north and America’s western landmass.

For finding a compatible warm place for living, the Mongolian human race people kept moving forward from Siberia.

And finally, those people entered America’s western part via the road of ice on the Bering Sea.

First, those migrants found that the new place {it was Alaska and Canada} was quite similar to the old one, which was too cold.

Therefore they kept moving to the south.

Finally, in the end, they found something different, something quite warm and compatible for living with so much vegetation.

The destination they got was today’s America, which is the home of us American people.

Centuries after, the ice age ended.

And the connection made via ice on the Bering Sea between Siberia and America got divided again.

The people, who came to the new land, later became its permanent resident.

In 1492, a European Italian explorer, Navigator, and pirate Christopher Columbus discovered this new landmass while finding a sea route to India.

By mistake, he thought that he got succeeded in the discovery of India. And when he met those residents, he considered them Indians.

Seeing their body’s color a little red, Columbus named them ‘Red Indians’.

Yes, you already heard about ‘Red Indians’.


So, today’s Red Indians are the main Native Americans that we are talking about throughout the post.

I hope now your doubt gets cleared on where and how did Native Americans come from.


Why Today We Found Them In Fewer Numbers In America?

The primary reason for this is the immigration and outrages of the European people from the beginning of the 16th century.

As I have mentioned above, in the year 1492, explorer Christopher Columbus discovered the continent of America.

When European expansionists powers, such as Great Britain, Portugal, Spain, France came to know about his discovery, they immediately started sending their people to the new world for establishing colonies.

After arriving on the new continent, these white race people began involving in clashes with its already living natives.

Especially, they began capturing natives for slavery and selling in Europe’s slave markets.

Many times, if they oppose, powerful and smart Europeans executed mass massacres on native people.

From the history of America, we found that more than eight million native people had to lose their lives due to the tyrannies of these immigrants.

Secondly, these migrants also spread many terrible diseases here, caused death in millions.

Day by day, these dominations and deaths kept reducing natives’ population on their own land.

But on the other side, due to the continuous migration of Europeans, their population started increasing every day.

If we look in the 21st century, the number of natives is very small in the American continent; majority of the population here are European origin.
