Discoveries could be ‘missing link’ to understanding Native American ancestry

Two 31,000-year-old milk teeth have led to the discovery of an ancient group of people who once lived in northern Siberia — and, along with a 10,000-year-old skull, could offer a better understanding of who the ancestors of Native Americans were, scientists say.

In a study published in the journal Nature, an international team of evolutionary geneticists revealed the existence of a hardy, mobile group of hunters they termed the Ancient North Siberians. This group was not made up of direct ancestors of Native Americans, as the scientists initially anticipated.
They identified the lost group of people from DNA extracted from two tiny teeth belonging to two unrelated boys, found near the Yana River in Russia.
“These people were a significant part of human history,” study leader Eske Willerslev, a professor at the University of Cambridge and director of the University of Copenhagen’s Lundbeck Foundation Centre for GeoGenetics, said in a press release.
