Test your DNA to see if you have significant American Indian ancestry.

500 Nations is a familiar phrase. The diversity of New World peoples is large. Our method searches for 15% of that number. It is the only such test on the market.

Most DNA testing companies have data on only about 20 or fewer North or South American Indian populations, of which only a handful are U.S. tribes. None is in the East. We have STR data for over 60 American Indian populations, including 3 Cherokee groups, one of which is Enrolled Cherokee from North Carolina.

Insufficient data on Native Americans long hampered both geneticists and genealogists. Finally, a major study addressed this failing with 29 separate American Indian tribes representing a diverse gene pool containing about 1,000 alleles (variants).  Added to DNA Consultants’ existing American Indian populations, our database now has over 60 American Indian tribes you could possibly match. Included are Cherokee, Apache, Chippewa, and, Lumbee, and Mexican and South American Indians. It is the most complete forensic database for American Indian population study.

Disclaimer: This is a forensic DNA test based in part on publicly available tribal American Indian data published in J. Ng et al, “Native American Population Data Based on the Globalfiler® Autosomal STR loci,” Forensic Science International: Genetics 24:e12-e13. This is a non-chain-of custody test and cannot be used for legal or administrative purposes. It does not yield percentages of ethnicity. Note that no DNA results are accepted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs to claim membership. Your Native American ancestors may be very far removed generationally or their genes are too weak to register statistically. Your results may or may not confirm expected ethnic composition, family history or genealogical determinations. Alone, no DNA ancestry test may be used to prove identity, biological relationships, nationality, citizenship, immigration or tribal enrollment.

I got your Jewish test a couple of years ago that showed I had Jewish alleles. I have a Native American 10th great grandmother who was a member of the Mohawk Tribe. I'm wondering if one of your tests (preferably a cheaper one) would show this ancestry?

I was excited to see the Native American DNA test until I read which ones were included. My husband's brick wall is on his maternal side with his Grandmother's story of 100% Claim of Canadian indigenous connection. Unfortunately his mother died in 2005 and we have no DNA information on her. We have mtDNA which is N1b1b1 from FTDNA. I have also been at RootTech this year and was advised to try 23&Me. Comments would be appreciated. Saundra and Kirk Ashley

Hi, I'm interested in knowing which tribe I come from. I have matched to Powhatan and I don;t know how. I was also told we my family are Creek. Could I be from Hawaii? I heard that once. I'm interested in knowing which tribe of Natives I come from. Which test do you recommend for me? My cousin James Walker has done this test and recommended it. I am not working during Covi, keep that in mind and my DNA data is already on 23&me, Ancestry, and Family Tree . I can be reached at 646-342-6984, please call to help me know more. Thanks! Sibrena
