There was a asteroid/comet strike in the Great Lakes region. National Geographic had an excellent article on it. Maybe try their website. My father used to observe and be able to point out the exact location of the sunset over the Sierras throughout the year.

I never read anything about the migrations within the Americas or the comet event, but I should...any good books on the subject?

There is an excellent article on the theoretical "Clovis Comet" here.

Eastern tribes relied a great deal on agriculture and that meant being tuned in the seasons. If this is a thread about Native Americans then you have to go deeper than simply an interest in astronomy.

Here is a link that is a good starting point for understanding the eastern tribes. I spent most of the afternoon reading this website. This site is illuminating.
