Will DNA link Alaska Indians to 10,300-year-old man?

Haida and Tsimshian Indians gathering in Juneau on Friday will get a chance to prove they're directly related to one of the very first Alaskans — a 10,300-year-old mariner whose bear-chewed bones were discovered a decade ago in a cave on Prince of Wales Island.

Most importantly, however, the evidence indicated that On Your Knees Cave man was a prime example of a relatively new theory about how the first people may have spread across the Americas, even before the last ice age ended.

A very cool find. I like how this find could possibly rest current ideas of how humans spread into the western part of the earth. ?I also think it is cool that this man provided the oldest sample of DNA in the world as well. All around an interesting story and find. Enjoy.

Great find Animal! Hopefully the testing they're conducting will provide a few clues as to his ancestry.
