The First Americans - Kennewick Man

Kennewick Man
Contrary to popular belief, the first Americans were not Indians who migrated to the Americas across a land bridge from Asia, the first Americans were the Solutrians, a European people who migrated to the Americas roughly 25,000 years ago.

Kennewick Man is the name for the remains of a prehistoric man found on a bank of the Columbia River near Kennewick, Washington, on July 28, 1996. The discovery of Kennewick Man was accidental; a pair of spectators at the yearly hydroplane races found his skull while swimming in the Columbia River.
