    Default East African population component on Living DNA

    Hello.
    I'm Tutsi from Rwanda. I did Living DNA test and my results came out recently. As shown below



    While my Nilotic, West African and supposed Eurasian ancestries are clear. I remained puzzled by my East African ancestry, which is also dominant but remains a total mystery for me. Can someone know the samples used to represent it?
    Here's what they say about it.



    I thank you in advance

    IMO the east african component must have a lot less West african admixture since the Yoruba admixture has like 13%. Whatever Eastern Bantu admixture contained in it is heavily Northeastern and nilosaharan plus eastern hunter-gatherer. 19% seems very little compared to other runs where you have more dinka like admixture. Seems like the Middle-eastern was also removed from the East african and if my memory serves me well that component is more/less equal to the natufian you get in nMonte. Perhaps you should do an nmonte run that has natufian and yoruba plus 2 other populations of your choice for comparison. Include dinka also.

    You guys all have results as one would expect. As bantus moved into East Africa its expected that they would absorb, assimilate, and take on mixture from pre-existing people as well as the those they encountered. It goes to show that diversity does exist in SSA thats often masked by a lot of the methods used in published genome wide studies who's intent isn't on SSA diversity.

    Tutsis are autosomally significantly more East African native than most Eastern Bantus.

    I guess if an "East African Bantu" had a test, he would score significantly more West African. That East African is indeed ambiguous.
    My scores on nmonte:

    The East African component was probably based on the Maasai
