Hi! Thank you very much for your question! Settlement in America is indeed a very complex issue!
As you may already know, the Earth has undergone significant temperature variations over the millennia. These variations had an impact on the territories and some submerged lands were able to rise to the surface when the water froze. What interests us today is the last ice age (around -18,000)!
In short, the first "discovery" would have actually been made by the Asian tribes in Beringia several centuries BC! However, the Vikings would have been the first to come to the continent after the Indigenous. Christopher Columbus, for his part, was the first “great explorer” to set foot in America, making him a very important figure in European colonial history. :)
I hope I answered your question and encourage you to ask yourself many more of the same kind :)
