Here's an article from an Arizona paper which is a good summary of the
current state of science. But note the tradition of the Apache, Franklin
Stanley. [thanks to David H. Bailey on Eyring-L for drawing my attention
to this]

Also, the article's a bit provincial and makes one mistake. The
Athapaskans are also known as the Dene, and the Apache and Navajo are,
along with the Tsuu Tina (Sarcee) of Calgary, mere exclaves of the main
Athapaskan area, which stretches from northern Saskatchewan into the
Yukon and up to Great Bear Lake and the Mackenzie Delta. Also, while the
Aleuts settled only in Alaska, it's very limiting to say that the Eskimo
settled in Alaska without any further comment; fact is there are far
more Inuit (as we call them) in Canada and Greenland than in Alaska.

The mistake he makes is about Clovis. It is no longer considered to be
the oldest remains -- Monte Verde in Chile now has that distinction. And
we also have remains of human (or whatever) activity in the Cardston
area which date back to the very end of the last ice age. In fact the
Eastern Slopes of the Rockies was an important migration route.
