Confirm your American Indian ancestry with this “report only” version of our best seller. If you already have your STR lab profile from previous testing you just need to tell us your customer number and we will prepare a full report for you. Does not include DNA test.
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 of 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, Lumbee and Mexican and South American Indians. It is the most complete forensic database for American Indian population study.
If you receive a high match to one or more of these your report will include a certificate listing your tribal affinities in ranked order. You also receive a result showing where American Indian appears in your top megapopulations, plus an ethnic analysis panel revealing whether your parents passed to you any of the markers known as Native American I and Native American II. You may also order a Deluxe Native American Certificate to be printed on fine paper and mailed to you.
