Anthropological Genetic History: The Athabascan (Navajo/Apache) Connection to New Mexican Families

ID : 84765   
« back to classes page
The Athabascans, which are spread farther east across Canada. "The People" - Dine'e - (now Navajo) diverged from this group about 700-1000 years ago. The first Athabascans arrived about 1350 CE in the Southwest. These Native-American societies flourished before the Spanish colonization of the Americas in the 16th century. We will explore the connection between certain New Mexican families and the Navajo and Apache. A short film will be shown that traces the history of these people. We will also discuss which families show the markers that are most identified with this ancient civilization.
