23AndMe:

https://customercare.23andme.com/hc/...ative_American

The first humans to reach the New World populated much of North, Central, and South America within just a few thousand years following their arrival from northeast Asia around 15,000 years ago. Despite drastic population losses over the past 500 years as a result of exposure to Old World diseases and genocide at the hands of European colonizers, the genetic legacy of these early American trailblazers persists to this day, primarily in Central and South America.

Recent Ancestor locations for Native American:

Argentina
Aruba
Belize
Bolivia
Brazil
Chile
Colombia
Costa Rica
Cuba
Dominican Republic
Ecuador
El Salvador
Guatemala
Honduras
Mexico
Nicaragua
Panama
Paraguay
Peru
Puerto Rico
Uruguay
Venezuela

Native American—North, Central, South
Native American—Andean

FTDNA:

https://www.familytreedna.com/learn/...tion-clusters/

The North and Central America cluster consists of present day Native American populations that span from southeastern Alaska down through the western half of the United States and end at the top of Nicaragua. Populations within this cluster are descendants of the first migrations from Siberia that moved into the Americas via the Bering Land Bridge roughly 15,000–23,000 years ago. These migrating populations split roughly 13,000 years ago as one group migrated east and south to populate areas of North and Central America and a second group spread down into South America.

The South America cluster is found in present day Native populations who inhabit Cuba, the Caribbean islands, the regions south of Nicaragua, and as far south as Argentina and Chile.

Great to see people discovering their heritages.

I don't have time to explain it in detail this is how Ancestry came up with their reference populations. This is a good place to start to learn the very basics. I get the sense though your more interested in finding little scraps of out of context data that support your outlier beliefs.
