There is a fairly comprehensive piece regarding research into the genetics of Latin American populations here: http://books.google.com/books?hl=en&lr=&id=R9QLWnWDKn8C&oi=fnd&pg=PP1&dq=related:UvEwu02DRPcJ:scholar.google.com/&ots=DHQmplDf0P&sig=UJUnUBAmOtiJFf4GsRHnsVx158M#v=onepage&q&f=false

I don't think you understood my post. And I am fairly certain you are not conversant with the way genetic research is conducted. There is some very good information posted on Wiki here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitochondrial_Eve That said, I am still a little taken aback by the seemingly xenophobic assumption that the indigenous population of what is now Mexico would be incapable of creating its own civilization. On what evidence do you base that assumption? Your ideas about "powerful warriors" are an entertaining fantasy, but there is no data or facts to back it up. It is speculative. Far be it from me to discourage your imagination, but there is a difference between fiction (that includes castration and sterility and a few black females!) and what can be shown by evidence.

I know I do not have anything like solid evidence. However, speculation, especially in a way no one has stated before is a good way to get people looking for new and different information. Without speculation would people have started digging below Clovis layers and discovering earlier human traces? Be assured, my imagination will not be discouraged. Imaging is too much fun, and I don’t confuse facts with speculation.
