    Yes.  They are basically the same race, although are now different sub-races.

    Yes. There is general agreement among anthropologists that the source populations for the migration into the Americas originated from an area somewhere east of the Yenisei River (Russian Far East). The common occurrence of the mtDNA Haplogroups A, B, C, and D among eastern Asian and Native American populations has long been recognized, along with the presence of haplogroup X. As a whole, the greatest frequency of the four Native American associated haplogroups occurs in the Altai-Baikal region of southern Siberia. Some subclades of C and D closer to the Native American subclades occur among Mongolian, Amur, Japanese, Korean, and Ainu populations. A 2019 study suggested that Native Americans are the closest living relatives to 10,000-year-old fossils found near the Kolyma River in northeastern Siberia.

    According to an autosomal genetic study from 2012, Native Americans descend of at least three main migrant waves from East Asia. Most of it is traced back to a single ancestral population, called 'First Americans'. Genghisids, is traceable primarily in Mongolia, India, China, Russia, Southeast Asia and the Middle East.

    Thus, likely crossover. Go back far enough, we're all related.

    Well native  Americans  are  actually  descended  from  Polynesians! The  Polynesians  are  descended  from the  Australian  aborigine. If the Polynesians  went  to  Easter  island  frequently  and  discovered  Hawai and  all of those places,  having  them  land  and  keep  coming  to  America  is  not  unreasonable?  They  were  amazing  seafarers. Genetically  they  are  related  to  the  American  natives  and  both  are genetically  related  to  the  Australian  aborigine. None of these peoples  are genetically  related  to  any  peoples  from  Africa.Though  African  peoples  carry  some  Australian  Aboriginal  genes.

    The  "Out of  Africa  "theory is full of  genetic  holes, but the  "Out of  Australia : theory is  far more  plausible.

      My personal theory is that the Polynesians made it to SOUTH America and expanded north, while Mongolians crossed over the Alaska land bridge and expanded south - maybe meeting somewhere like in Mexico.

    Yes. A few thousand years ago, Native Americans wandered across the Bering Strait (the space between Alaska and Russia) from modern-day China. Some of the people stayed and went to Mongolia, while other stayed, some moved on, while some moved to neighboring countries.

    Highly possible, given the accepted idea that humans crossed over from Asia on a land bridge to (now) Alaska and then continued on down the west coast (and inland).

    Well since Native Americans are said to have originated from Asia it is likely.

    Ultimately, we all did.
