At the end of the twentieth century, a new idea found favor. Scientists realized that the water level was much lower along the coast during the last ice age. Evidence of early southward migrations, they reasoned, would likely be found at ancient sites now lying dozens of feet underwater. Preliminary excavations and further analysis provided additional support for the argument that the early inhabitants of North America made their way south along the coast. Having reached an area south of the ice sheet, the argument goes, they then headed further south and east, eventually peopling the entire continent.

New social groups formed in what had initially been seen as harsh and unfriendly areas. These societies, the ancestors of the tribal peoples of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, adapted their harvesting activities, seasonal movements and lifeways to the realities of cold/hot, dry/Wet, rocky/sandy environments. They soon differed in values, customs, and activities from those peoples inhabiting richer ecological niches, where experiments in agriculture eventually produced subsistence and later surplus agriculture.

Other observers point to the decline of traditional harvesting, intermarriage with other cultures, social and economic crises, government intervention, and many other forces as representing both cause and symbol of the ongoing destruction of indigenous cultures. Across the continents, in political, cultural, and social meetings, the arguments continue. Will indigenous societies survive, in the face of all manner of human, biological, economic, and cultural domination? Can the remaining small, isolated, indigenous peoples, often inhabitants of the most remote and difficult terrain in the world but now found in densely populated urban environments, flourish in an age of globalization, resource development, and ecological change?
