    Question Almost every American has a sliver of Native American ancestry

    https://geneticliteracyproject.org/2...f-youre-white/

    Broadly, the genomic analysis found that on an average the African American genome was 73.2 percent African, 24 percent European and 0.8 percent Native American. Latinos as expected had significantly more Native American ancestry with the average Latino genome being 18 percent Native American, 65.1 percent European and 6.2 percent African.

    With respect to European Americans, the percentages are much more different than African Americans or Latinos, with European American genomes being 98.6 percent European, 0.19 percent African and 0.18 percent Native American. In general, the numbers seem to agree with what one would expect given the history of American colonization by Europeans and their interactions with African and Native Americans.

    Averages do not tell anything about how large a portion of the populace, which has this ancestry. People who suspect a certain ancestry are probably more inclined to take the test in the first place.
    The husband who decides to surprise his wife is often very much surprised himself.
    The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

    I doubt it. But it wouldn’t surprise me if there are people who have some Native ancestry and don’t even know it.

    Not actually very interesting if we do not determine what the white American means. In many times shit happens and the population under study is preselected. According the study definition all samples seen "colored" can be ruled out. It really happens. If you first define who is "black", who is "red" and who is " white", you have already ruled out something.

    I1 - Transdanubia 5000 BC

    Three simple facts about Finns:
    1. Baltic Finnic languages (including Finnish) never came from the Volga basin along with ancestors of present-day Finns.
    2. Finnish I1 (around 30% of all Finns) has Germanic roots from the late Bronze Age or the early Iron Age.
    3. As to the Finnish prehistory we have no evidences about any Iron Age (or later) east-to-west migration, but many unquestionable evidences about west-to-east migrations.

    Is it genuine Native American or is it shared DNA derived from common Ancestral North Eurasian roots?

    ^This. It would be far more correct to look at the picture on a regional basis, and I guess the South would win as far as having it goes, due to it having received less immigration than the rest. The Pacific Northwest would be a top contender as well.
