If, as Turner believes in the article, "Cultists and warriors of the Quetzalcoatl overwhelmed the local residents," then I wonder if there would be a DNA match between Chaco Canyon resident burials and Aztecs.
Likewise, it would be interesting to see if there was a DNA match between Aztecs and earlier inhabitants of the region (ie, pre-Anasazi). That would seem to help validate or help invalidate the MeCHA claim that the ancestral homeland of the Mexican people is in the southwestern U.S.

A DNA analysis would pretty much answer the question, I agree.
