You will find highlighted in red on page 2 of the report under World Population Matches modern-day tribal matches. Also, in the analysis and conclusion section that starts on page 5 you will find a listing in the paragraph that begins "Remember: results do not equal ..." listing of any further tribal connections.

If you want additional help, please call DNA Consultant's office 888-806-2588 toll free Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mountain Time to talk with someone who can help you interpret your report.

Hope you enjoy the explorations,

Hi, I found this rent blog
Mary Martin, the grand daughter of Ka-Okee, who was, in turn, the daughter of Pocahontas and Kocoum, the brother of Chief Japasaw. Kocoum was murdered by the Jamestown settlers in 1613 when Pocahontas was kidnapped. Ka-Okee, who was two years old, stayed with the tribe. In 1645, when Ka-Okee was 34 she married Theodore Pettus, they called her Jane. In 1636 they had a female child, Christian Pettus. We don't know the date of Ka-Okee's dea

Interesting DNA match, family.

Ariana, unfortunately we are not able to give you any more definitive information than what you have. Your Native American matches were all in South America and you should be able to look them up on the internet. If another member of your family were to be tested, it's possible that more information could be gained, since family members inherit different markers from parents.
