The Canadian Indian: R32-47/1980E-PDF

the Prairie Provinces.

"Archaeologists and geologists generally agree that man came into the prairie region during the last Ice Age when much of Canada was buried under two giant glaciers — the Cordilleran and the Laurentian. An ice-free corridor separated these ice sheets and people entered America from the continent of Asia over a 1 200 mile stretch of land. Today, the area which once formed this land bridge is known as the Bering Strait."--p. 1.
