"... [B]y 10,500 B.P., about the time Folsom points made their appearance in the American Southwest, the Nenana complex, with its bifacial spear points, was abruptly replaced by the bearers of the Denali culture, people who made not bifacial points but true microblades.  So abrupt was the change that some scholars ... believe that the Nenana people were displaced -- basically run off -- by another group.  It may be ... that interior Alaska was 'a region repeatedly reoccupied by different cultural groups.'"  [references omitted]
