Approximately 28,000 BC- 23,000 BC: Four different groups of Asians enter the Americas (probably across the Beringia land bridge)

Around 28,000 BC to 23,000 BC four genetically differentiated lines of Asians began entering the Americas.

There were at least two separate migrations across the Bering land bridge in prehistoric times, possibly more. The migrating peoples came from varying regions of Asia.

The first peoples came from eastern Asia, in the south of the vicinity of the Sea of Ohkotsk. This wave consisted of five significantly differentiated groups.

Clues in language point to a large variety of migratory groups, with language differentiation, specialization, and consolidation between these groups in the Americas beginning around 28,000 BC.
