"A study published Thursday in the journal Science shows the first people to settle in the Arctic weren't Inuit, but rather 'Paleo-Eskimos' — a Siberian people not genetically related to today's Inuit or First Nations people.

Eske Willerslev is with the Natural History Museum at the University of Copenhagen and one of the study's authors.

"You can say that we are settling a long debate in Arctic archeology about the Paleo-Eskimos. That is: are they actually representing a different indigenous population?"

Archeologists analyzed remains found in the Arctic and compared them with DNA of ancient and present-day Inuit.

There was no match.

The spread of humanity across the global will always be an enduring mystery. We can see glimpses of it, and gain amazing insights, but as to how, where, when and why we and our ancestor spread, I don't think we will ever have the whole story.
