Homo Sapiens originate from Africa, Europe, and Asia. They

spread to Australia and then North America during the Ice Age. This

was due to land bridges being formed during this time period. South

America was only connected to North America, so to reach this

continent the Homo Sapiens had to first pass through North America

(which is what they did).
