Re: Lumbee Indians, DNA testing
In Response To: Re: Lumbee Indians, DNA testing ()
I've been told by DNA specialists that Native American DNA is so filtered through the generations that it is rare to find traceable DNA. I am just curious. Why is it so important to find Native American DNA in you or your family? I feel African Americans put too much emphasis in proving they have Native American ancestry and they become disappointed when they don't find it.
