Anyone know if Native Americans are Asians?
As per my DNA test I am mostly European (65% European), and 25% Native American, plus other races.
However, at some DNA sites my 25% Native American is interpreted as North East Asian (Korean Peninsula) or Siberian too.
So, I guess I am Euro-Asian?

One wave of migration from Siberia populated the Americas, DNA shows

According to you, "anything above 51% is your race" - so you are European, not Euro-Asian.

Y-DNA and mtDNA seem to confirm it.

Native Americans are genetically Mongoloid the same as Siberians and other eastern Asians including

"Mongolian races (northern Mongolian, Chinese and Indo-Chinese, Japanese and Korean, Tibetan, Malayan, Polynesian, Maori, Micronesian, Eskimo, American Indian),"

How many major races are there in the world? - World Mysteries Blog

BTW, Siberia is in Asia therefore Siberians are Asians. Asian is not a race. Mongoloid is a race. There are billions of Asians that are not Mongoloid.

Relationship to Indigenous peoples of the Americas[edit]

Indigenous Siberian Shaman at Kranoyarsk Regional Museum, Russia
Paleo-Indians from modern day Siberia are thought to have crossed into the Americas across the Beringia land bridge between 40,000-13,000 years ago. A Georgetown University study has suggested that migration across the land bridge resulted in the similarity of the North American Na-Dene languages and Siberian Yeniseian languages, uniting as the Den√©–Yeniseian languages family.[21]

"Analysis of genetic markers has also been used to link the two groups of indigenous peoples. Studies focused on looking at markers on the Y chromosome, which is always inherited by sons from their fathers. Haplogroup Q is a unique mutation shared among most indigenous peoples of the Americas. Studies have found that 93.8% of Siberia's Ket people's and 66.4% of Siberia's Selkup people's possess the mutation.[22] The principal-component analysis suggests a close genetic relatedness between some North American Amerindians (the Chipewyan and the Cheyenne) and certain populations of central/southern Siberia (particularly the Kets, Yakuts, Selkups, and Altays), at the resolution of major Y-chromosome haplogroups.[23] This pattern agrees with the distribution of mtDNA haplogroup X, which is found in North America, is absent from eastern Siberia, but is present in the Altais of southern central Siberia.[23] The genetic evidence points to a strong connection between Amerindians being related to indigenous people of the Altai Mountains region of Siberia.[24]"

What if so-called native Americans, or earlier arriving immigrants to the current day USA and Americas, have significantly more West Eurasian origin linked to the Middle East and Europe and less East Asian ancestry than anthropologists and geneticists traditionally believed?

Apparently Native Americans came by boat from Asia, as per this new publication:
https://arstechnica.com/science/2017...icas-by-boat/?

Now scholars are supporting the "kelp highway hypothesis," which holds that people reached the Americas when glaciers withdrew from the coasts of the Pacific Northwest 17,000 years ago, creating "a possible dispersal corridor rich in aquatic and terrestrial resources." Humans were able to boat and hike into the Americas along the coast due to the food-rich ecosystem provided by coastal kelp forests, which attracted fish, crustaceans, and more.

Every few years there's a new theory about when people from Asia began migrating to North America. It didn't happen just once as was previously believed. There were several migrations of different Asian tribes during different periods. I believe but not certain that the earliest thus far has been from about 40,000 years ago confirmed with DNA evidence.
Regardless, "Native Americans" are without a doubt Asian in ancestry. Look at old pictures of some Siberian Natives and you wouldn't be able to hardly tell them apart from Native Americans in how they built their structures, dress and general physical appearance.
