A DNA test cannot tell Native American Roots

In my 75 years traveling

around Mother Earth

to native gathering

in New York, New England, Pennsylvania,

New Jersey, Delaware and parts of Northeast Canada.

There was no problem

believing that the people

we met were in fact,

(Native Americans),

No DNA test 

or proof

of blood percentage

from anyone.

By the way,

did you know that,

Half-Breed is an English word

and

Mixed-Breed is a United States of America word,

If you use them,

Guess What You Are?

PHONY-INJUN!

both are now used in movies

and

as a way to eliminate

our people from Mother Earth!

Sometime around the middle 1980’s!”

Non-native politicians stepped in,

to change the laws and

resolve our ‘land claims’ again.

In other words,

to abolish our land claims.

One might tend to guess, that the speed of the internet

had a little to do with it?

I tend to believe that the

“Government Controlled Indian Appointment to a Casino Indian Reservations,”

and their

Money

was the reason!

(Indians)? From way across the Mississippi River

started showing up at our gathering

and

bullying elders

and

pushing what did not work, with their elders,

at these Eastern Gatherings.

Not my grandfathers gatherings!

“Never allowed at mine, my fathers, or my grandfathers gatherings”!!!!!

((( NEVER ! )))

Well, now that most of the elders

have crossed

or retired,

they seem to be back like

the greedy vultures

that they are!

O.K.

Now on the this article

Sorry,

Scott Brown

A DNA test can’t tell us if Elizabeth Warren

has Native American roots

To which my response was:

Can she?

Would a DNA test actually answer that question?

No.

Nanibaa’ Garrison is a bioethicist and assistant professor of pediatrics at Seattle Children’s Hospital. A Native American, she earned a PhD in the Department of Genetics at Stanford, with a dissertation focused on ancestry. In a phone call Tuesday afternoon, she explained why Brown’s suggestion — and the Republican National Committee insisted on Tuesday that it was only that, a suggestion — wouldn’t do any good.

“It’s really difficult to say that a DNA test would be able to identify how much Native American ancestry a person has,” Garrison said.

That’s because determinations of ancestry are based on “ancestry-informative markers” — genetic flags that offer probabilities of the likelihood of certain ancestries. Most of those markers, AIMs, are “based on global populations that are outside of the U.S.,” she said, “primarily people of European descent, people of Asian descent and people of African descent.

So, should a Warren apologize to Native Americans?

Answer—NO!
