It has always been my belief that the Native Americans were descendants of Japheth,one of the three sons of Noah.
Your article here states that the peoples and nations of Japheth were; Cimmerian (Crimea),Germany and her peoples,Denmark and her peoples,Carpathians,Armenians,Turkey (possibly), Turkestan(possibly), Georgia and her peoples, Russia and the Russian peoples, Thracians, Etruscans(possibly), Persians, Medes, Scythians, Aryans, India and her peoples,founded by the Aryans.
Plus, you say that over the course of the following centuries, Japheth's descendants migrated to the America's, where they encountered the Native Americans, descendants of Ham.
In an article written by Steven Collins entitled, THE ISRAELITE ORIGIN OF THE SCYTHIANS, he states they inhabited, or arrived, in the region of South Russia about 700 B.C., according to THE ENCYCLOPEDIA AMERICANA.
Assyrian documents place their appearance on the shores of Lake Urmia(just south of Armenia)in the time of King Sargon(722-705 B.C.), a date which closely corresponds with that of the first establishment of the first group of Scythians in southern Russia.
It is also known, or believed, that the Mongolians were descendants of the Scythians,who were noted horseman and nomadic people. These Scythians,from my research,were the ancestors of the Alaskan Natives, who crossed the land bridge to America and settled on the shores of the Americas.
These were the first Native Americans, descendants of Japheth, who migrated throughout and settled the U.S. These were the Native Americans who first appeared from this crossing of the land bridge to become the Commanche, Lakota, Sioux, and many northern Native and Canadian Indians and the Native Americans.
From the descendants of Ham, I see no correlation of the people that are listed as peoples, or nations, of Ham's descendants to populate the American Continent, and no link to become the Native American people. The closest in geographical proximity to inhabitants origins of the Native Americans can only have come from the descendants of Japheth, being of Scythian origin.
I am interested in your conclusions on the connections to Japheth's descendants amongst the Native Americans of North America.
