    Did Northern American native the same tribe or race as those from Mexico?

    What I do know is all northern native American are original from East Asia, here is my question: Are the Mexican group the same race as the American and Canada group or are they speaking different languages? Please is there any professor around who can answer my question, I am from the far east so it will be great if someone can answer my question, thank you very very much, dear...

    YES!  Yes they are!  This is where the history written in the Book of Mormon comes into play (Hear me out before making any judgements)

    Indeed, those original inhabitants of northern/southern Americas did come from Asia, but actually Jerusalem.  About 600 BC, Lehi, a prophet preaching in Jerusalem, was told by God to take his family, and flee into the wilderness as Jerusalem would be destroyed (ultimately the scattering of the 12 tribes)  He and his wife, four sons, and his friend Ishmael and his family, plus another member(Zoram), traveled to a "promised land", where they landed in what I believe is South America.  They begin to multiply and populate, shortly afterward finding another group of people that far exceeded their numbers, known as Mulekites.  They are remnants of Mulek and some other members, of one of the twelve tribes taken captive.  They'd managed to break free and were also guided to this land.

    Its recorded about 49-39 BC: "And it came to pass that they did multiply and spread, and did go forth from the land southward to the land northward, and did spread insomuch that they began to cover the face of the whole earth, from the sea south to the sea north, from the sea west to the sea east.".  I did calculations once on the population of people (JUST Lehi and those that came with him) if they doubled every generation from 600 BC to about this time frame, we have 6,710,886,400 people.  EASILY could cover both continents.

    The difference in languages is mostly from conquests/raids/other nations claiming the land.  Mexico and below is mostly Spanish and some Portuguese, due to Cortez/Christopher and other such people from Spain/Europe.  Canada is mostly France and England, the US England...

    Now, people might argue Native American decent doesn't come from Jews, which may be true, but does not disclaim that they came from Israel:  "It has become customary to use the word Jew to refer to all the descendants of Jacob, but this is a mistake. It would be limited to those of the kingdom of Judah or, more especially today, those of the tribe of Judah and his associates. Thus all Jews are Israelites, but not all Israelites are Jews, because there are descendants of the other tribes of Israel also upon the earth"  Lehi is a descendant of Manasseh, and so his family would be also.  The tribes of Zoram, Ishmael and his family, as well as the Mulekites, are not known (or at least not any that I recall)

    So far, I've written over 50 Hubs on Native North Americans and studied the subject for 40 years; and most simply stated, it looks to scientists generally, based on DNA tracking, that people in the Circumpolar Region (the wide circle below the North Pole) migrated around that circle (the peoples around the circle share some DNA); and groups in Siberia and Asia migrated to what is now Canada in North America, traveled down to the southernmost part of South America, and back up to the Ohio Valley and other nearby places around the Midwest. There, they were joined by Peoples that had migrated West to East across Canada over a frew thousand years.

    Pacific Islanders and certain groups from Oceana (New Zealand, Polnesia, etc.) may or may not have crossed the ocean and joined the Indigenous Peoples already in North America. A lot more work must be done to fill out the migration patterns, but several language groups of related languages among Native North Americans are published on the Internet. You can look them up with a search for "Native American language groups." GOOGLE runs a project to save languages that gave few speakers, so we hope no more Indigenous North American languages will become extinct.

    Many generations back, the Native Mexican Peoples and the other Native North Americans are related. You might look for a university that has a language department for Mayan and Aztec languages and read their findings on th topic.

    Interestingly, I am related to the Mohawk, whose Iroquois nations were traced in 1996 by linguists to the Zulu Nation in Africa through language similarities, like the same word for "cousin"  -- It's similar to the Hungarian language being related to Finnish.

    Studies in Anthropology and Archeaology seem to line up with DNA and human migration research done by the partnership of the Smithsonian Institution, National Geographic, and IBM. However, that project seems to be limiting progress now to only what researchers can find from the DNA test kits that the general public is purchasing and returning to the partnership. It is very slow going and we are not seeing any reports.
