This gives you the Native American update/upgrade to our exclusive, best-selling DNA Fingerprint Test, based on the atDNA 10.3 database after you have ordered any of our other tests. There is no need to send another sample or retest. 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 megapopulation frequency index confirm, within the limitations of our data:
Our database contains over 60 North and South 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. These matches are available nowhere else.
The test and ethnic panel also detail any European, Middle Eastern, Jewish, African or Asian ancestry. You receive your top twenty matches from different European countries or parts of countries, plus two charts and a map illustrating your ancestry.

On the basis of your existing test results from the simple product, your sample is analyzed against 15 standard STR markers, also called CODIS markers. Your values for these genetic systems are compared with the database of STR frequencies known as atDNA 10.3.
This report takes about two weeks once we receive your order. It will be uploaded to your online account as a pdf and can be downloaded, printed and shared.
The 18 Marker Ethnic Panel checks your lab report for 18 distinctive numerical values scattered through your genetic material. These markers were discovered by DNA Consultants. They have been linked to early human migrations branching out of Africa into Asia, Native America and Europe as shown on our map. Two are Native American.
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 if you only receive one variant, but two are an indication of ancestry of that ethnicity on both mother’s and father’s side. Read about autosomal markers.
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.
