Default My DNA Results

There was a black Friday deal on DNA tests and I wasn't going to pass on on it. Anyway, I took the test and these are my results.



For the amount of native, I'm not surprised. European side, a lot of shockers for me.

Took about 4 weeks.

I just followed the instructions as it told me. There is no way you can mess it up unless you don't read the pamphlet that comes with it.

Just seems you more into the Native aspect of being a Meztizo and don't embrace the European part of that equation...perhaps I'm wrong?

The way I see it I reflect on my native side than my white side since I know more on my native side than my white side. I have Nahua and Manso roots. The family heirlooms are from the native side.

This is the first time I see Italian/Greek & Great Britain as being that high. I always assumed more Spanish.

Besides, what is wrong embracing your native side when usually it's the side that most people neglect?

Nothing is wrong with it at all, just an observation. But you are right, a lot of people do neglect their Native side.

Do the results influence you into learning more about Italy, Greece and England?

I first want to know where in the family tree they come from first based on what I know.

As I told a friend once, I went to an Italian/Greek restaurant the other day while speaking English while wearing my Native Threads hoodie. Good enough for me. LOL.

It's the one that they use for the show Decoding Our Past Through DNA.

I got it as a black friday deal so I only spent about $60-70. I don't remember, just remember it was cheaper than they usually have it.

I thought you got it through Ancestry.com. I think I remember seeing on their site that they sell one too. Do you know if theirs is worth trying, Tec?

I did get it through ancestry.com, but they're the sponsor to that particular show.

I have friends who told me to use other DNA test, but I haven't seen them at a steal to buy one. I'm not going to spend over $100 on a DNA test. LOL. I will post those that I see as a bargain on soy.

Thanks for the tip! Now I'll know not to bother with the ones over $100.

How accurate is yours by the way?

Very complicated. They give a breakdown on the ranges on each particular piece of finding. Some parts are +/- 1% while others are about +/- 10%.

Do you know the details or the break down of your dna test? As in, it states you are 53% white , does that mean somewhere down the family tree there was just a branch that was all white or white dna mixed into your 35% native side?\\


And what was your purpose behind doing the test, was it strictly psychological ? if you don't mind me asking


Learning nahuat and being into indigenous culture, how did it make you feel when you found out genetically that you are more white than native? does it change your mind set now?
