Native American Woman in Europe

Native American woman may have voyaged to Europe with Vikings, according to a new genetic study.
This is by no means new news.
I have posted about this before to help to explain another reason why New England, New York and their surrounding neighbor Native Americans have light skin.
About 80 people living in Iceland possess a genetic variation found mostly in Native Americans, genetic signature likely entered into Icelandic bloodlines around 1000 AD the same time the first Vikings sailed from Iceland to Greenland and on to Canada then down to this country.
Raiders or Traders?
American Indian Sailed to Europe With Vikings?
The Viking people were brutal to countries that attacked them however, I have not found information from my ancestors or history books stating more than visiting traders and as with other countries coming to our shores they sometimes traded for young men and women.
