    Nope. The Inuit came last, separate latter migration from the first NA.

    Genesis chapt 11 tell us when the Arch survivors landed they alll spoke one language but because they refused to spread out God confused their language so they had to move on Today He is uniting some (Zeph 3;9 Revelation 7:9) by the Pure Language of truth

    Firstly, the Inuit are NOT Native Americans.  They aren't native, and as most live in Canada, they are not Americans.

    Second, they came MUCH later than the natives did.  The Dorset culture was first, but even they were only a few thousand years ago.  The Thule culture (the current Inuit) arrived much later.  In fact, in eastern parts of the Canadian arctic, and Greenland, they arrived at the same time (approximately) as the Vikings did.

    Short answer, no.

    Native American is simply a US government management term for it's indigenous people. That is, the people who were on the land before the modern nation was formed.

    They replaced the word Indian because English speakers couldn't tell the difference between Indo (Endo) and Bhārat (India).

    But still, most people don't like being thought of as indigenous anyway.
