With the release of our new database atDNA 10.2 you can now find out if you have a high match to either admixed or official enrolled Cherokees, along with a total of 50 North American Indian tribes. The two new reference populations called U.S. Cherokee Admixed (n = 62) and U.S. Cherokee Admixed (n=92) were created in house from a combination of participants in our Cherokee DNA Studies who traced their mother’s mitochondrial lineage to a Cherokee woman and a random sample of customers who indicated to us that they identified as Cherokee. Most excitingly, we added the first available tribal data with a new population called U.S. Cherokee Enrolled (n=33) in July 2018. For more information on the Cherokee people see our population page.
Your personal DNA profile is compared with our data for 26 American Indian populations from eight countries in North and South America. In addition to Cherokee, possible matches included Apache, Navajo, Salishan, Inuit, Lumbee, Maya, Huichols and Canadian aboriginal tribes, representing a total of nearly 4,000 subjects who identified as Native American, American Indian, indigenous or aboriginal in forensic studies.
If you receive a positive match your report will include a Special Cherokee Match Certificate. If you do not receive a high Cherokee match your report will include a Deluxe Native American Certificate listing your other Native American matches, depending on your results. You may also order a quality color print of your certificate that is mailed to you.
