...the Vikings didn’t mix much with the local population.
...geneticists from Norway and Sweden have provided a picture of the Viking world that reveals women traveled to settle in far-off places. This appears to be true of born-and-bred Norsewomen as well as those from the lands where vikings traveled.

Its pretty much an established fact (by the sane) that the "Vikings" and the Phoenicians came to the Americas way before the later Europeans did (who are actually descended from them btw; go figure). But for some reason the establishment does not want you to know that.
Proof in the form of an inscription, like the celebrated Phoenician text allegedly found in Paraíba in northern Brazil, remains unlikely. The latter, which recounts the landing of a storm-driven party from Sidon, has long been recognized as a clever forgery. If such a fateful expedition had actually occurred, the proof is more likely to be found in a handful of Phoenician pottery shards

No , the Inuit do not carry haplogroup C
See my previous post, it explains that HgC in Europe is very ancient, it in fact predates most modern Europeans.
In 2010, Icelandic researchers discovered a C1 lineage in their home country, estimating an introduction date of 1700 or earlier, indicating a possible introduction during the Viking expeditions to the Americas. A Native American origin for this C1e lineage is likely, but the researchers note that a European or Asian one cannot be ruled out

Yeah, my first thought was that an american football team had kidnapped a girl from India... lol.
Both Indians and Vikings are wrong words to use today.
Should read: Native American DNA found among 1000AD Norse.
Nothing says she was kidnapped, bought as a slave, was someones wife or just a curiouse female following a "new" people. The possibility exists, but the evidence does not.
