About that Neanderthal DNA

[Not rock pile related] I was enjoying watching this and recommend watching some of it:

Tales of Human History Told by Neandertal and Denisovan DNA That Persist in Modern Humans - YouTube

At around 7:25, he more or less proves that Neanderthals were in the New World.

I realize that I am oversimplifying. But if all new world Neanderthal DNA came from admixture with post-Columbus, non-Native, sources - then the proportions ought to be a little different. I am in no position to do the modeling to back up this statement.
