There is definitely a Native American connection. Haplogroup A originated in Central Asia approximately 60,000 years ago. It is through I2 subgroup that—along with haplogroups B, C, D and X—the first Native American populations emerged some 15 to 20,000 years ago. Haplogroup A is currently established in parts of Asia -- Japan, Korea, and some areas in China-- and in in North and South America. It is said that Haplogroup A is heavily represented among Eskimos in Alaska.
