There is no way to know. Ancient explorers migrated from Asia and Africa to North America the route from Asia probably by what is now the Bering Strait that separates Asia from Alaska and the route from Africa probably from the trading posts on the Niger, probably 40,000 years or more ago. The North… American continent was populated sparsely at the time of the Younger Dryas, a sudden cooling of the Earth that may have been caused by a comet or asteroid impact in what is now Canada. The impact and climate change caused the extinction of many large mammals including the Saber-Tooth Tiger and the Wooly Mammoth, and the demise of the "Clovis People", one of the earliest-known human settlers in the Americas until the arival of the "Olmecs". However, by the time that Leif Erickson and Columbus arrived in the north American continent less than 1000 years ago, the continent had been pretty well re-populated. ( Full Answer )
