The World Just Keeps Getting Murkier And Murkier...

Native American Woman May Have Made It to Europe 500 Years Before Columbus Was Born

American Indian Sailed to Europe With Vikings?
"Five hundred years before Columbus sailed the ocean blue, a Native American woman may have voyaged to Europe with Vikings, according to a provocative new DNA study.

Analyzing a type of DNA passed only from mother to child, scientists found more than 80 living Icelanders with a genetic variation similar to one found mostly in Native Americans.

This signature probably entered Icelandic bloodlines around A.D. 1000, when the first Viking-American Indian child was born, the study authors theorize."
Oops. (Makes sense to me. It's perfectly possible.)
