The DNA analysis on Kennewick Man was officially declared 'undetermined.' Unofficially Chatters gives a 'rough' rundown of the DNA that was obtained and Ainu at 23% was the highest.
You are correct. I couldn't remember Ainu.

Thank you for the post, Blam. That 23% leaves a great deal of "wiggle room" to come up with verifiable truth.
Spunky, I deeply appreciate knowing from someone on spot what happened with regard to the destroyed archealogical site. (I love FR for that.) I was utterly enraged when that happened and still cannot think about it calmly.
We have so many varied "vested interests" resident in diverse groups that claim authority in the matter that the struggle to get at or verify anything other than what was supposed, surmised or dreamt up in the past is almost as impossible as getting into the next galaxy.
Academians who have written books, if proven wrong will loose revenue. Schools at which they have taught will lose prestige. People groups will have to alter their deeply and reverently held belief systems and perhaps give up their tightly clutched benefits or privileges. Scientists would need to be able to admit that their conclusions, calculations could have erred in some way and politicians might need to give up some group manipulation advantages for any headway to be made on this entire subject world-wide.
That is more pride to be excised than is humanly feasible. One has to assume that only a G_d Almighty could achieve it.
I'm willing to watch.
