The Amerind

 

 

This Native American ancestry marker has footprints in Mongol/Turkic populations but hardly reached Europe. It is sporadic in Southeast Asia and China or Japan. In the New World, it runs stronger in Central and South America than North America. It has a frequency of 27% in Bolivians and is as high as 16% in Central Asian Turkic (Altai) peoples. Oddly, 11% of Jews and Scotsmen have it. 23% of Arizona Apaches have it.
