Is the multiple wave theory dead?
A recent genetic study claims that native Americans are all descendants of a single group from Siberia. While this in itself would seem plausible, I don't see how it can be sqaured with the linguistic evidence of multiple migrations. Native American languages are famous for being so different from one another--differences that are hard to account for within a 10,000 year time frame.
