DNA test results reflect only the tiniest inheritance, but today I honor my Native ancestors, the American Originals, on Indigenous Peoples Day.

23andme’s version of my ancestry composition.
Nothing surprising. My parents and sister all hover around the same percentages: 58.8% Sub-Saharan African for my father and sister, 61.1% for my mother; 38.4% European for my father, 36.3% for my mother, 39.0% for my sister. I have the lowest East Asian/Native American, but none of ours is high: .6, .5, and .7. Our few Native ancestors probably lived in the 18th century. Given what I know of my parents’ ancestry, I had expected my father’s European ancestry to be significantly higher than my mother’s, but that just goes to highlight how painfully little I really know.
