Native Americans' early history

The research on native American origins is getting interesting as new genetic analyses appear. There's now greater clarification regarding northern and southern branches. More is now known about the landscape of Beringia, where the ancestral populations are thought to have resided for thousands of years. At the same time, the dates for a migration along the coast keep getting pushed back. Another study of genetics, hypothesizes that there were three major populations that pushed into South America and another one that headed into eastern North America.
