  It is thought that The Native People of North America came originally from Asia. They were able to go by foot, across the Bering Strait, which separates Asia from America, because at that time huge ice sheets covered much of the northern half of the earth.
The route from Asia to North America

Scientists believe they may have arrived as early as 35,000 years ago and that there were no other people there before them.
Over thousands of years they moved south, and spread out over North America, settling in different parts. Some of their descendants also went as far south as South America.
