The NGS website announced this week an opening at the Department of Interior, Indian Affairs, for a genealogist in the Washington DC vicinity. Let’s hope that whoever they hire also understands, and I mean really understands, DNA testing – as they assuredly will be bombarded with questions about how DNA testing pertains to Native people and their descendants.

This is interesting. Opens up a lot of questions.
What percentage of Native will allow one to be Native?
At what percentage will the Nation allow membership – and will the Nation require more than blood? For example, the president and vice-president of the Navajo nation must speak Navajo.
