    This doesn't mean that the BST isn't well documented and accepted. However, there are definitely some issues within and alternative anthropological theories to the BST.

    Have you heard of the theory regarding migrations from the Oceania to South America?
    Are you referring to who populated places like Easter Island? If so, then yes.

        Very true. Most Oceania tested show small amounts of Indigenous Amazonian. Where most Indigenous Amazonian show small amounts of Oceania.

          When I was a kid, I was talking to my mom about this family (in our tribe) & how it seemed like everyone in this family was mean. I was giving her examples of how they acted/what they had done.

          She told me, "It's in their blood." She said that it's one of our old beliefs that personalities & character traits, just like physical traits like hair & eye color, that that is passed down through the blood. So then we talked about this other family where all the girls are really sweet & lovely. It was just their nature.

          I think everybody can still choose how they want to behave & act/react in any situation, but I think what's in someone's blood plays a part too.
          You are right. Some of it is environmental and depends on upbringing but they have also identified genes that will determine someone's core personality. They can predict anxiety, temperament etc. it is definitely "In their blood" but that can be both genetically speaking and because their familial temperament/personality can be absorbed environmentally.

            A few of my friends are amateur genealogists and they encouraged me to start building a family tree as a hobby and confirming through dna testing so I recently did a 23 and Me dna test earlier this month (they're having holiday sales!) and they labeled part of my results under their "East Asian & Native American" combined category. I also did an Ancestry last month because it was on sale as well and they labeled part of my results under the "Native American - North, Central, South" category. I think they're both good dna tests, but Ancestry's results were more accurate because they have a larger sample population than 23 and me plus if you opt-in they have dna matching with relatives. I think they can be helpful if you're using them for things like building family trees as a hobby.

              This is under environment too, but position inline of birth of siblings seems to influence personality. They used to write books about the “middle child”.

                DNA Disappointment

                I took a DNA test and I am disappointed with what I found out I wanted to know if I had Native Blood in me or not and The Test I took on my heritage came back with no Native American Blood and I was like what no native blood that's crazy cause My Aunt told me for years after doing research on our Family Heritage and Ancestry Indian blood is in our Family bit it didn't show on my Dna Test Now I am feeling confused lost and I had a connection now that's all gone now.Having that DNA test ruined the connection I once had now that's broken and I don't know who or what I am anymore. I guess blood isn't everything but still it would of been nice to have a blood connection instead of a spiritual connection oh well it is what is.

                  Sorry , did I miss something ? You said you took a DNA test ? So you know exactly who you are , you're just NOT NATIVE ! Seems simple to me !
                  I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !


                  They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

                  There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

                  Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
                  It's not me....I think you're an idiot !

                  There's a chance you might not like me ,

                  but there's a bigger

                  chance I won't care

                    Hi there
                    by ghostwoman
                    I've just joined this forum after googling for info on fan handles. I'm from the UK and we don't have the suppliers of all the stuff for making native crafts here.

                    I'm white by the way, so I hope I'm not doing anything wrong by making native style crafts, I'd sooner die than cause...

                    Sample Chapter
                    by CaudwellianDialect
                    Okay so thus far chapter 3 is one of my strongest, though it is an action chapter, and I am trying to avoid too many of those because I don't want to portray the Anowarkowans as violent people, but more, it is hard to say, they are enlightenment era almost technologically, but different then Europeans,...

                    Adopted and seeking my ancestry
                    by ndnchickasawgrl
                    Hi
                    I'm half Chickasaw. I have been adopted at birth and was put through the DHS in the state of Oklahoma. It's been so long ago that I can't really remember how I even really got my card for membership, but now wondering how to go about getting the rest of my ancestry figured out. I have little...

                    Eclipse Plans? ...Stories? ...Customs?
                    by eagleclanriverband
                    Just wondering what you're planning on doing?

                    I saw a couple of news stories regarding the customs that some tribes have or stories that have been handed down. I've never heard of any stories in my tribe.

                    The sound of tom-toms are played on the big bass drums as the marching band stands at the ready position, their heads going back and forth as if to simulate the tomahawk chop. The pace picks up, the drums played faster and faster, reaching a frenzied crescendo as the band lets out a whoop and assorted...
