This is the Native American version of our exclusive, best-selling DNA Fingerprint Test. It examines all your ancestral lines at once, Native and non-Native, including European, to tell you which countries and ethnic groups your ancestors came from. The Native American tribes and population matches, markers and metapopulation frequency index confirm, within the limitations of our data:
- What Indian tribes you have the most affinity with
- Which Native American markers you have and how many of them
- How common or rare your DNA profile is in American Indians
The test and ethnic panel also detail any European, Middle Eastern, African or Asian ancestry. You receive your top matches from different European countries or parts of countries, as well.
Once you order, we send you a package with a collection kit and instructions by Priority Mail. You will collect a sample with a cheek swab, and return the kit via a stamped business reply envelope. Your sample will be analyzed against standard STR markers, also called CODIS markers. Your values for 15 of these genetic systems are compared with database known as atDNA 10.1 developed by our population experts.
Total turn-around time: about three weeks.
Our database contains over 60 North American indigenous populations explicitly defined as Native American, some labeled with tribal names, some not, plus Melungeon, Hispanic and other related populations. The populations U.S. Cherokee Admixed (n=62) and (n=92) were added in 2014 and 2017, and U.S. Cherokee Enrolled (n=33) in 2018, respectively, and are available nowhere else. Your complete report with map and certificate is delivered by email as a pdf file. You can also choose to purchase a high-quality color print-out to be mailed to you.

Native American DNA Fingerprint Plus Test
Native American version of our most popular, gives you all your ancestry and highlights the Native American.
In the marker section, your report tells you if you have a Native American marker from one parent, from both, or from neither. It is not possible to say which parent you get a marker from–that is up to you to decide! And the fact that you do not have a marker does not mean that you lack that ancestry. Read about autosomal markers.
Order a deluxe certificate specifying your American Indian matches or markers after you have received your results. A wide selection of styles available.
