Before, it was largely considered that the Native Americans came 13,000 years ago. These First Americans, identified as the “Clovis Point” culture after the spear points found near a town called Clovis, New Mexico, in the 1930’s date between 13,000 to 11,000 years ago and until the last 30 years were considered the oldest archeological finds of Native Americans in the Americas. However, newly identified sites and items left over by Native Americans all over the continent have pushed back the date when they may have first arrived in the Americas.
