Not exactly. For them there was no difference between the lands they left behind (modern Asia) and the lands they moved into, since they were all one continuous land mass.

Imagine yourself 20,000 years ago living in a hunting band in the area that is now Panama. Your hunting band moves south-east to follow the animals you are hunting; you keep following those animals, making new camps and finding fresh water sources as you go. Eventually you will be in South America - but nothing is any different to the place you started from, so it would not seem like you have discovered new land. There's just a lot of it - and no humans are there already.

That's exactly how it was for those Neolithic hunters following game animals into the Americas.

around 10,000 bc an ice bridge formed connecting modern day Alaska to Russia, some Native Americans came over that way. As for the Native people in South America, they could have traveled as part of the same group OR could have sailed from Polynesia

There are a number of things that the native Americans discovered. The most important was the discovery of America itself where they first settled.

Do native Americans exist?

Native Americans exist in the sense that at the time when European explorers first came to the western hemisphere, there were already people living there. Those people were also immigrants to the western hemisphere, having come over from Asia perhaps 30,000 years previously, but from the European perspective, they were native, and their descendants still exist today and consider themselves to be native Americans. As far as the paleontological record shows, the human race evolved in Africa originally, therefore in an absolute sense, Africa is the only continent to which human beings are truly native.
