"Popular television shows, such as Finding Your Roots and Who Do You Think You Are?, have ignited a renewed passion for traditional genealogical research and thrown genetic ancestry testing into the spotlight. Once a tool only for historians and forensic scientists, DNA testing is now available directly to the consumer. Supporting the Next Generation Science Standards on heredity and inheritance of traits, this title uses simple language and detailed images and charts to explain how genetic ancestry testing is done, what it can--and cannot--reveal about a family tree, and the potential unintended consequences of being tested. Furthermore, sidebars offer information about related topics, such as the Human Genome Project, mitochondrial Eve, and genetic genealogy careers" -- Provided by publisher.

Native American DNA : tribal belonging and the false promise of genetic science

November 30, 2018
TallBear, Kimberly.
xi, 252 pages ; 23 cm

The Genographic Project: The Business of Research and Representation 143 -- Conclusion: Indigenous and genetic governance and knowledge.
Because today's DNA testing seems so compelling and powerful, increasing numbers of Native Americans have begun to believe their own metaphors: "in our blood" is giving way to "in our DNA." In Native American DNA, Kim TallBear shows how Native American claims to land, resources, and sovereignty that have taken generations to ratify may be seriously-and permanently-undermined.
