Hello, Yes, this is possible especially if it is a small tribe or a tribe like Blackfoot that has no published data on it. We have all data that is published in academic and forensic science.

Re: I found Chamorro in my DNA test. What does this mean if I'm unaware of it in my family?

That seems likely using an educated guess only as these are areas where Sephardic Jews live/d; however, this is not a direct Sephardic Jewish match to a specific population in our database.
