    Research ties Native Americans to indigenous people in Siberia

    Researchers who analyzed indigenous languages in the U.S., Canada and Russia say their ancestors lived together in the Bering Strait before migrating to their present locations.
    Mark Sicoli of Georgetown University and Gary Holton from the University of Alaska Fairbanks compared 37 languages in the Na-Dene family with two languages in Siberia that belong to the Yeniseian family. Their research indicated that a language spoken by the ancestors of both groups was used in the Bering Strait as long as 14,000 years ago.
