    Default Origins of the Tutsi

    What is your opinion on the origin of the Tutsis? While a significant portion of the Tutsis are inseparable from their Hutu brethren, some look quite Aethiopid. But the genetic studies seem to suggest other origins similar to the Hutu. So is the phenotypic variation present among these populations primarily because of Aethiopid admixture, or the result of an adaptation to climate?

    There Bantu, study the migration, then you will have your answer.

    I have met some Tutsis who say they have Ethiopian ancestry.

    Interestingly enough, that is what their oral history says. And apparently, the names of several Tutsi tribes are Orominya words (spoken in Southern Ethiopia).

    Wikipedia pretty much puts a lid onto the whole case,

    According to these early twentieth-century Europeans such organization and such noses could only be explained by European descent, transmitted by way of Ethiopia. Modern day genetic studies on the y-chromosome show the Tutsi to be at least 99% of African origin (80% E1b1a, 15% B, 4% E3, 1% E1b1b) with little to no East African genetic influence.[1] In fact, the Tutsis are most genetically similar to the Hutu. There is currently no mtDNA data available for the Hutu.

    I believe their uni parental markers are indicative of common ancestry with Bantu speakers, however I haven't seen any Autosomal analysis done on the Tutsis, it could be possible that they cluster Autosomally with the Afroasiatic cluster that is predominent in the horn I guess.

    Tutsi/Hutu combination is included in Tishkoff's study of Africa.
