language links between Siberians and some Native Americans

Interesting discussion on evidence for connection

the Nez Perce is trying to recover its original
appaloosa horse, by crossing Akhal Tekes with
fairly high percentage Ameridian derivation appys,
calling this the Nez Perce Horse, reminiscent of
the high quality animals that Lewis and Clark
reported among the Nez Perce, Shoshone and
