Discovering Native American Ancestry through DNA


The purpose of this class is to review the scientific and anthropological evidence regarding Indigenous peoples of the Americas and the genetic markers that have been associated with their ancestry. Through Y chromosome, mitochondrial DNA, and autosomal DNA testing, individuals can learn if they have ancestors that were indigenous to the American continent, regardless if they have a paper trail to demonstrate it.

In this Discovering Native American Ancestry through DNA video, we’ll cover the basics of DNA as it relates to Native American ancestry and the history behind it all.
