Cherokee DNA leaves everything up in the air. Hosted by Pete Ferrand, the premier episode of “The Time Traveler’s Suitcase” features three stories from a publication by DNA Consultants suggesting Cherokee Indians are genetically related to ancient Egyptians, Greeks and other Mediterranean peoples, including Jews. The first story of the podcast, “Maybe My Great-Grandmother Really Was a Cherokee Princess,” explodes the myth that American Indian ancestry was adopted by many Southerners out of racial guilt. The second, “Trail of Fears,” discusses who is and who is not Indian. The third is about the textbook case of Nancy Cooper v. The Choctaw Nation, which stretches back to the 1890s, and the billion-dollar Individual Indian Monies scandal, which closed the Bureau of Indian Affairs for eight years.
