Beringia

 

When and how did the First Peoples arrive in the Western Hemisphere? While conflicting theories embattle academia, the most widely accepted theory is that the Paleo-Indians in the Americas made the great migration on foot across Beringia – the Bering Strait between Siberia and Alaska – over 20,000 years ago. However, various theories argue they came via boat from the Iberian Peninsula in modern-day Europe, or possibly from Japan or Australasia.

In this documentary, we explore the Beringia Land Bridge Theory. Additionally, we discuss what some experts say are the First Peoples to make it south of the Canadian ice caps during the Last Ice Age, the Clovis People.
