Approximately 43,000 BC- 30,000 BC: People are apparently living in some rock shelters in the region someday to be called Brazil

Pedra Furada is the name of one place, which sports cave art and more.

Could these be Africans who have crossed the Atlantic? Or some of the earliest Australians from across the Pacific, who then went on to explore deep into the interior of South America? Or could they be Iberians (Europeans)?

-- THE 50,000-YEAR-OLD AMERICANS OF PEDRA FURADA From Science Frontiers Digest of Scientific Anomalies ["http://www.knowledge.co.uk/frontiers/"] #87, MAY-JUN 1993 by William R. Corliss, citing Paul G. Bahn; "50,000-Year-Old Americans of Pedra Furada," Nature, 362:114, 1993

Some early migrations into the Americas possibly came across the Arctic, as well as the Pacific and Atlantic. Artifacts suggesting connections to Iberia and France have been found. The genetic diversity in native Americans strongly implies at minimum 30,000 years of development on the continents (under some reasonably plausible scenarios). The 140 language families of native Americans suggests 40,000+ years of development. The entire Pacific Rim shares ancient commonalities in native languages.
