Not That There's Anything Wrong With Swedes

The current issue of National Geographic has a brief progress report on The Genographic Project.

The Seaconke-Wampanoag tribe was the first U.S. group to participate in the project, members gathering in Seekonk, Massachusetts, last summer to give DNA samples. Chief George Silver Wolf Jennings is hoping the samples will yield clues about the path their ancestors took when migrating to New England, but he doesn't want any ugly surprises.

Says Chief Jennings: "I just hope these guys aren't gonna tell us we're all Swedish." [p. 73]
