I have read many scientific books about world history...
According some HISTORIANS, the American Natives were Turks..
According to a historical study, The Turks existance begins in Central Asia in 300 BC.The Turks establishes 29 nations until Turkish Republic.There are not many culture which has to the ability of establishing nations as Turks.
The Turks, continuously moved from Central Asia from 7 branches and 24 clans.
The Turks have a national tradition on Anatolian Land about 1000 years.
On the other hand, A Turk Branch had immigrated to the America from Mongolia, Siberia and North Pacific Ocean...
This is a historical moving in the ancient time.
If you really want to learn Turkish Language, first of all, you should know the history.
According to some HISTORIANS, the American Natives were Turks

I find this very interesting. My sister happens to be dating a Native American (he is from the Ohlone tribe). It would be greatly appreciated if you had some links that you could pass on for more reading on this topic.

çok teşekkür ederim,

Wendy

I have heard that too. But I just think that they are extremists.
There are some points that may be right too..??..

1-Some motifs of American Natives'(Indians) rugs are similar to Turkic ones. This is the main idea for the relationship.
Don't remember much but they say that the meaning of those motifs are similar to Turkic ones.
2-Some words of some native languages looks like Turkic words.
Japanese has some similar words(same origin) with Turkish. So it is thought that in very very very very old times, some Turkish people went to Japan-Land and established Japan, and the remaining part moved to America.

They maybe right, but I don't think so.

3-Some people tracked Turks back to Mu. Another mysterious continent like Atlantis, but older than Atlantis I think.
Turks were living on a huge island in the middle of Pacific Ocean with some other tribes or cultures. When the island had sunk some old Turks had moved to Asia and some has moved to America.
They have some evidences of writings, some old pictures etc supposed to be Turkic origin from Mu continent.

This is also a possibility. Since the evidences cannot be approved, you can choose to believe whatever you want.

IMHO: NO

Addition:
According to most of the people in the world American Natives are not Turks, they are Indians.(From India)

No, they are not Turks. The nation Turk formed much later than the migration of the Amerindians from the central Asia to America. However, Turks, Indoeuropeans and Amerindians share a common genetic marker P which originated in central asia, and had derived as R and Q respectively. This should indicate the relation, a common ancestor in central asia. Language seperation developed quite late comparing to the genetic seperation, so Turks mainly with language and cultural mark can not be related to Amerindian. All human are related, only difference is the time scale.

Thank you lovebug – Wendy- and SunFlowerSeed for your valuable contributions..
In my opinion, the AMERICAN NATIVES and AMERICAN INDIANS are very different things according to a scientific study.
In my opinion, American Indian is a wrong concept or a phenomenon.
It is called "AMERICAN NATIVES".
This is a true definition.
And, according to some Historians, American Natives were Turks.
I study this thesis….

Yes, I agree with korshad …”All humans are related, only difference is the time scale”.There is only one ethnical group in this planet, it is humanity.I study this thesis as a humanity family.

I love that Korshad said all humans were related, only difference was timming. I believe this. I wish more people would study other cultures, and they would see so many similarities. This is why I love travel, cultures, and languages. It shows you that in some way, no matter how small, there are similarties that connect us.
