Where do Americans originate from?

Native Americans, often erroneously called "Indians," are believed to originate from Asia (which is EXTREMELY theoretical). Some people think that their "ancestors" crossed over the land bridge between Russia and the Americas many millenia ago (even though the terrain would have been extremely horrendous and barren and no animals for hunting migrate from west to east in that area).

Non-native Americans come from all over the world. The majority have European ancestry, meaning at some point a distant relative came to the US from Europe. But America is called a "melting pot" because there are people here from every nation on earth.
