DNA TESTING PROVES NATIVE AMERICAN GENEALOGY TO BE AMONG THE MOST UNIQUE IN THE WORLD

The systematic destruction of the Native Americans, First Nations, Metis and Inuit people and their entire way of life was not only one of recorded history’s greatest tragedies, but, as with the slave trade, deeply spiritually wounding to all involved.

The utter decimation of their culture is one of the most shameful aspects of our history, the extent of the damage still being down-played and denied entry into textbooks and history-lessons to this day.The threads of these ancient cultures – having existed here for tens of thousands of years prior to the arrival of the ‘pioneers’ – no matter how tenuous they may currently be, must be preserved, strengthened and woven back into a quilt that tells the unique story of not only their past, but of their bright future as well.


For two decades, researchers have been using a growing volume of genetic data to debate whether ancestors of Native Americans emigrated to the New World in one wave or successive waves, or from one ancestral Asian population or a number of different populations.“Our work provides strong evidence that, in general, Native Americans are more closely related to each other than to any other existing Asian populations, except those that live at the very edge of the Bering Strait,” said Kari Britt Schroeder, a lecturer at the University of California, Davis, and the first author on the paper describing the study.


“While earlier studies have already supported this conclusion, what’s different about our work is that it provides the first solid data that simply cannot be reconciled with multiple ancestral populations,” said Schroeder, who was a Ph.D. student in anthropology at the university when she did the research.“If natural selection had promoted the spread of a neighboring advantageous allele, we would expect to see longer stretches of DNA than this with a similarly distinct pattern,” Schroeder said.“And we would also have expected to see the pattern in a high frequency even among people who do not carry the 9-repeat allele. So we can now consider the positive selection possibility unlikely.”You have probably heard his name before. He is a true American hero. His name is William Kyle Carpenter. He fought for this country as a United States Marine. At the age of 21, he earned the rank of Lance Corporal. In 2010, he was sent to fight in Afghanistan. During a firefight, Kyle saw a grenade land near where he and another Marine were fighting.
“”Without a second, though, Kyle used his body as a shield and covered the grenade. He was willing to give his life to save the life of a fellow Marine.
The human body was not designed to withstand that kind of explosive force and Kyle’s body had been severely damaged.
“”
Not only did he have shrapnel all over his body the bones in his skull and face were shattered. But, Kyle survived.
“”
Part of his jaw as lost, his lung collapsed, and he was even pronounced P.E.A. when he finally got to Camp Bastion.
“”
P.E.A. means patient expired on arrival. So, technically the enemy grenade did kill him – but he wasn’t done here on earth yet, and he came back.””
He also got the Medal of Honor which was given to him by President Barack Obama.
“”
Today, Kyle is retired from the military and is working on getting his degree in International Studies from the University of South Carolina.
Over the next two years, Kyle had forty different surgeries.
“”
He was awarded the Purple Heart for his act of incredible bravery.
“”
In his spare time, he gives motivational speeches and charity work.

The results also ruled out the multiple mutations hypothesis. If that had been the case, there would have been myriad DNA patterns surrounding the allele rather than the identical characteristic signature the team discovered.“There are a number of really strong papers based on mitochondrial DNA – which is passed from mother to daughter – and Y-chromosome DNA – which is passed from father to son – that have also supported a single ancestral population,” Schroeder said.“But this is the first definitive evidence we have that comes from DNA that is carried by both sexes.”
