Now it is scientifically proven that there are already 1200 years before our era has been travelling from the south american mainland and the eastern Polynesia. Long before europeans came to.
It writes the BBC.
Back in 1947 tried the Norwegian adventurer Thor Heyerdahl to prove that the journey has been possible with a primitive boat, long before what you might otherwise have thought. And now the hills research him up.
- We have found segments of DNA from native americans across several polynesian islands, says Alexander Ioannidis from the Stanford University in California. He has been to see the 800 persons DNA to find the essential results.
- It is a concluding evidence that there has been contact.
In other words, there has been contact between the natives of the americas and the polynesian people, which have given rise to the genes have been mixed.
Simulations of the winds and currents shows that the one with the largest probability is raised from Ecuador or Colombia, then you have encountered Marquesaøerne and then the Tuamotu islands, which belong to what we know today as French Polynesia. Travel, which extends over about 8000 kilomter.
How it looked, as Thor Heyerdahl tried to prove that the trip was possible in 1947. A journey that has been filmed in the movie named after the primitive skudes name, Kontiki:
