Hey, I know nothing about this topic, but . . . Yucatan is in the swim, according to this article from Smithsonian Magazine. ¬†Apparently a very important 12,000-year old skeletal find turned up in a cave near a cenote (sinkhole), which is helping rewrite the history of ancient peoples in the hemisphere. Here’s a photo from that article, which is pressing the question, who were the first Native Americans?
