Greetings for your study! I would really like to keep receiving more information about its progress! Nevertheless, when we, puertoricans talked with our grandparents many, many of them informed about their ancestors and, yes, a great number of them were European males who migrated to our Island and intermixed with indigenous women(among other ethnic mixes). This is well known in our Island, and, with truly due respect, so it is our colonial past: not a surprise for us!!!
The following guides emphasize information that can be used to stimulate thinking about cultural differences and prompt questions that will help providers understand how their patients identify with and express their cultural backgrounds. These are not fact lists to apply indiscriminately. An apt analogy to keep in mind is that learning about a specific model of car is helped by referencing the operator 8767 s manual, but reading and even memorizing that manual doesn 8767 t replace learning how to drive a car.
Most Cambodians are Theravada Buddhists, one of the two major branches of Buddhism. Followers of Theravada, meaning the “Doctrine of the Elders,” adhere to the earliest surviving record of Buddha’s teachings. Buddha is believed to have lived and taught in northeastern India sometime during the fifth century BC. The two largest Cambodian Buddhist temples in Minnesota are located in Hampton and Rochester. Other Cambodians practice Islam, Cham, Christianity, or animist religions.
My maternal ancestry is of Puerto Rican origin and the Genographic results indicate that my mtDNA traces back to West Africa even though physically I am white. I was always curious about what could have happened and guessed that a Spanish ancestor mated with an African woman. This article seems to confirm what I have thought all along. I 8767 d like to do more research and have my DNA tested for other potential haplogroups to get a better picture of my past.
Right On, Sistah! I said this a lot of times. People do not get it. But it is the so-called White media that Brain-wash a lot of folks. And oh yes, look how “Americans” mean only the people of the United States of America and place else. Jews have been made into a race. True Semites (People of African and Asia mix) are no longer called Semitic People, And goes on and on. It is so sad that a lot of people have fell for this propaganda.
My grandmother (mother 8767 s side) was from Utuado. You should really test Puerto Ricans from mountainous areas. My grandmother and her Bermudez family look very Tiano. They are short with jet black hair and dark skin. Most Spanish lived around the coast and I 8767 m positive that you will see more Tiano blood in places like Utuado. My father 8767 s side is from Coamo and I can tell there is African on that side. My mother 8767 s father had strong Spanish features. Bottom line is I 8767 m a mutt! A beautiful mixture and colorful roots.
Most black Puerto Rican people, in America, are taught to believe they are not black, to kin themselves with white or “real” Puerto Ricans and not being black or black Americans,to ignore their black blood by their parents. But from what I learned about Zoe Saldana is that she is one of the rare ones who’s mother taught her not only that she is black but to be proud of it. And so she is she’s proud of being black, Puerto Rican and American which is where she was born
Sarah Paxton’s mother is Jewish and her Father is English, Irish, and Scottish. She is not really considered a mixed race person. Mixed race people come from more than one of the different races: Ethnographic division into races from Meyers Konversationslexikon of 6885-95 is listing:
Caucasian races (Aryans, Hamites, Semites)Mongolian races (northern Mongolian, Chinese and Indo-Chinese, Japanese and Korean, Tibetan, Malayan, Polynesian, Maori, Micronesian, Eskimo, American Indian),Negroid races (African, Hottentots, Melanesians/Papua, “Negrito”, Australian Aborigine, Dravidians, Sinhalese)
It’s a more difficult distinction than that. The dna and religion is blended in such a way that it is difficult to define as one thing or another. There is such a thing as a Jewish “race” – the genetics prove that. There are many different types of Jews ashkenazi, Shephardic etc. However, I would argue that there’s no such thing as race at all and that it is a man made construct. Different ethnicities, backgrounds, culture, language, yes. But there’s only one race, the HUMAN race and the quicker we realise that the better for us all.
Tattoo artist, author and TV personality Kat Von D has been making her way into our hearts ever since appearing on the shows Miami Ink and LA Ink. We love her badass personality and fearless style. Kat has also written and published successful books including Go Big or Go Home , High Voltage Tattoo and Tattoo Chronicles. Her porcelain skin and tattooed body are a striking combination. Kat is a gorgeous blend of Spanish, German and Italian.
Hmong are organized into 68 clans determined by ancestral lineage. They have large, extended families and practice traditional ceremonies to remember their ancestors. Clan leaders are the key decision makers. Each person has a last name that represents the clan they belong to. When a woman marries, she keeps her maiden name. The Hmong language, Hmoob (Hmong in English), has many dialects, although most Hmong speak either White Hmong or Green Hmong. Hmong was not a written language until the late 6965s and has few medical terms.
The majority of immigrants from Latin America are Roman Catholic Christians, who attend church regularly, pray to God, Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and saints. They light candles, observe baptisms and confirmations, maintain home shrines, and visit shrines throughout Mexico or Latin America when possible. Catholic Hispanics/Latinos celebrate religious holidays, including Christmas, Easter, and holy days.
Sara Paxton’s mother is a European Mexican-Jew. Oh snap. That would explain why she doesn’t look Aztec, but I guess the authors of this article assume everyone in Mexico looks the same. And Shannon Elizabeth is a quarter Syrian and a quarter Lebanese, many Syrians and Lebanese would take offense to being considered “Arab”, and they are closely related to Southern Europeans, making them “white.” I thought it was interesting that Syrian/Lebanese is considered “white” in Bob Marley’s case, but not in Shannon Elizabeth’s case. Hmmmm.
My understanding is that individuals from Spanish speaking countries in South America prefer to be referred to as Latina/Latino to avoid referring to the label of Hispanic which is related to colonization by Spain. Latina/Latino, per the US Census’ separate category, is only to refer to whether someone is connected to a Spanish speaking country. Separate questions address race, ethnicity, color, etc.
might want to let eminem know that? well in that case i guess you might want every person who grows up in an impoverished inner city know this also, or do you have to be black to listen to rap? or like your clothes to fit a certain way? people adapt to their surroundings. I hate when i hear people say that I, a person of black decent talk like a white boy just because i took it upon myself to make sure that i am an educated and we ll read and spoken man. Ignorance only makes you look ignorant with the things you say. and no sir, i am not attacking you in any way just giving my opinion
While there may be a percentage of the population that carries indigenous mitochondrial/maternal DNA, the absence of paternal DNA clearly indicates anabsence of said population. Additionally, the question should be: Of those with said DNA, what is the highest, and the mean percentage ofi ndigenous blood/DNA in the samples? I 8767 d wager that the percentage is too low to meet the BIA 8767 s requirement for being indigenous. Assuming a child of mixed awncestry has 55% indigenous DNA, his son has 75%, his grandson , etc. Assuming also that there have been no indians in PR since the 6655 8767 s, itbecomes likely that even the 8775 purest 8776 of these samples contains anything more than traces.
Let 8767 s go back 575 years ago to find the photographer who took the picture. National Geographic still depicting Puerto Rico as the agrarian economy it was 75 years ago. As for the differences between paternal and maternal DNA, it is easy to explain: slave Native men don 8767 t get to reproduce, slave women reproduce the offspring of their owner/rapists History of the Americas. Oh, and we did have a similar / parallel system to keep track of our origins centuries ago, though not as accurate: trace back the last names in your family. That 8767 s why patronymics and matronymics are important. In my family, for instance, we still trace back twelve generations, keeping track of our roots from Spain, Italy, Greece, even Holland. You should pair the two systems for mutual corroboration. And do hire a photographer in this era of smart phones, please.
Thanks for sharing your interesting findings, Dr. Vilar. I 8767 m wondering if there have been studies in Puerto Rico based on blood type, especially the origin of B+. My father is of this type and I know it 8767 s rare around the world (except in Asian countries). My parents are from the West (Rincon) where people probably have more European in them but he is copper colored and can pass for Arab.
Wentworth Miller is not just half black and half white. There is more to it than that. His father is of African-American, Jamaican, English, German, Jewish, and Cherokee background, and his mother is of Russian, French, Dutch, Syrian, and Lebanese ancestry. And, these aren’t ‘races’, they’re ‘nationalities’.
Plus, why is this even a story? Why must we constantly point out our differences? We’re all just people here.
