DNA Expert: Trace Amounts of Native American DNA Could Actually Be Asian

Elizabeth Warren Asian Ancestor

A recently resurfaced article written by a prominent genealogist explains how Europeans and Americans who have trace amounts of Native American DNA could have Asian ancestors.

In a thorough 2014 article on her website DNA Explained, genealogist Roberta Estes explains that through ancient migrations and more recent Asian invasions of Europe, many North Americans and Europeans who take popular DNA tests may register trace amounts of Native American DNA due to common genes between the two long separated populations.

Estes explains that the Huns arrived in Europe and conquered great swaths of it in starting in 370 AD. They were eventually followed to Europe from Asia by the Maygars in the 800s and 900s, another Asian population that would eventually settle in modern day Hungary.

Much earlier in history, it is widely accepted by experts that most Native American populations came to North America through three ancient migrations from Asia and Eastern Europe.

She explained that a hypothetical person of Hungarian or German descent could be a good candidate for this occurrence.

“Since both the Hungarians and some Germanic people descend from Asian populations, as do Native Americans,” she wrote, “It’s not unrealistic to expect that, as populations, they share a genetic connection.”

After running tests on her hypothetical half German, half Hungarian candidate, Estes received results suggesting that the person could be as much as 0.27 per cent Native American according to at least one publicly available DNA test, in genes Estes says would likely have belonged to a Hunnic or Maygar ancestor.

Meanwhile, Senator Elizabeth Warren’s controversial DNA test suggests she may only be 1/1024, or 0.097 per cent, Native American.

In other words, Sen. Warren may have less theoretically Native American DNA than the hypothetical half Hungarian, half German man from Europe in Estes’ article, and that DNA could have originated in Asia, not North America.

At Least 40 Americans Infected With Coronavirus Aboard Quarantined Cruise Ship

They will be treated in hospitals in Japan.

Published

At least 40 Americans aboard a cruise ship have been infected with the coronavirus, in a development that suggest the dangerous disease may transmit more rapidly than the public in the western world realizes.

Immunologist Anthony Fauci, an official with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, confirmed that 40 Americans had been diagnosed with the disease in an appearance on 60 Minutes Sunday.

Some reporting indicates that even more people have been infected with the disease, with figures ranging up to 355. These estimates include passengers of all nationalities. Those afflicted with coronavirus are being taken to Japanese hospitals to receive medical treatment.

The Americans were on board the cruise ship Diamond Princess, which is currently quarantined in Yokohama, Japan. The ship is host to the most pervasive outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic outside of China, where it originated. American passengers who tested negative of the disease have been evacuated from the ship and brought back to the United States on charter planes. Those infected with the virus will be treated in Japanese hospitals.

At least one American passenger who was traveling on board the Diamond Princess is refusing to take a U.S government charter plane back to the country, stating his belief to USA Today that the evacuation process the government is using to retrieve its citizens is not safe.

There’s considerable cause to believe the global public is being largely kept in the dark by the authoritarian Chinese government on the dangers posed by the quickly spreading virus. Estimates of the total count of people infected by the disease are largely unclear, with the Chinese government suspected of releasing deflated statistics in an effort to blunt criticism of their response to the epidemic.
