Mormons and the Natives

One of the beliefs of Mormonism is that natives Americans are the descendants of Israelites.  One of the problems of this is that there have been people in North America since long before these Israelites supposedly arrived.  This article speaks of a 4,600 year old grave in Ontario, Canada.  As someone from Ontario, I found this very interesting.  I understand that Mormons now say that the Israelites are only one ethnic ingredient within the natives.  However, this seems to me like complying with the evidence and not at all in line with early Mormon writers.
