      Most interesting. The genetic evidence we have indicates that the founding population(s) for Native Americans (not necessarily the 'first arrivers') separated from their original East Asian/Eurasian communities sometime between 25,000 and 15,000 years ago, but we don't know where they travelled to or resided between then and first arrival in America. This tooth fills in some of that uncertainty. I've long been a believer in the 'Beringian Standstill' hypothesis which theorises that they were 'stuck' in an area where the ice sheets didn't allow them to proceed until an ice-free corridor existed at the end of that period of isolation.
