    Post Ancient mtDNA analysis and the origin of the Guanches

    Ancient mtDNA analysis and the origin of the Guanches

    The prehistoric colonisation of the Canary Islands by the Guanches (native Canarians) woke up great expectation about their origin, since the Europeans conquest of the Archipelago. Here, we report mitochondrial DNA analysis (HVRI sequences and RFLPs) of aborigine remains around 1000 years old. The sequences retrieved show that the Guanches possessed U6b1 lineages that are in the present day Canarian population, but not in Africans. In turn, U6b, the phylogenetically closest ancestor found in Africa, is not present in the Canary Islands. Comparisons with other populations relate the Guanches with the actual inhabitants of the Archipelago and with Moroccan Berbers. This shows that, despite the continuous changes suffered by the population (Spanish colonisation, slave trade), aboriginal mtDNA lineages constitute a considerable proportion of the Canarian gene pool. Although the Berbers are the most probable ancestors of the Guanches, it is deduced that important human movements have reshaped Northwest Africa after the migratory wave to the Canary Islands.

    "slavic" languages are absolutely arteficial (Read "slawenlegende"). The "glagolica", invented by a bunch of monks, is nothing but an ancient esperanto, creating new words, definitions and alphabet out of regional slangs.

    The craddle of European Civilization comes from the North. All blond people originate from the north. So if you see a blond-blue eyed Slovene, Russian, Czech, Polak ect., you can be 100% sure that his ancient ancestors originated from "Germanics" (Germanic = Nordic).
    "slovenja" was the settelment of the Langobards = Germanics/Teutons. "Poland" of the Goths and East-Vandals ect. ect. What do "slavs" tell us about their origin?
    Some silly story that they originate from some swamps in the east and popped out of no where into history.

    So you see my dear "Gorostan" [=Triglav], you are in reality a "Germanic" indoctrinated with panslav propaganda and historic fantasy stories. ~Dr. Brandt, former TNP and Skadi member

    Genetic tests indicate that the Gauches were mostly decended from people related to the Berbers of North Africa.

    Population genetics

    A 2003 genetics research article by Nicole Maca-Meyer et al. published in the European Journal of Human Genetics compared aboriginal Guanche mtDNA (collected from Canarian archaeological sites) to that of today's Canarians and concluded that, "despite the continuous changes suffered by the population (Spanish colonisation, slave trade), aboriginal mtDNA [direct maternal] lineages constitute a considerable proportion [42 – 73%] of the Canarian gene pool.


    According to a recent study by Fregel et al. 2009, in spite of the geographic nearness between the Canary Islands and Morocco, the genetic heritage of the Canary islands male lineages, is mainly from European origin. Indeed, nearly 67% of the haplogroups resulting from are Euro–Eurasian (R1a(2.76%), R1b (50.62%), I (9.66%) and G (3.99%)). Unsurprisingly the Spanish conquest brought the genetic base of the current male population of the Canary Islands. Nevertheless, the second most important Haplogroup family is from Northern Africa, Near and Middle East. E1b1b (14% including 8.30% of the typical berber haplogroup E-M81), E1b1a and E1a (1.50%), J (14%) and T (3%) Haplogroups are present at a rate of 33%. Even if a part of these "eastern" haplogroups were introduced by the Spanish too, we can suppose that a good portion of this rate was already there at the time of the conquest.[14][15] According to this same study the presence of autochthonous North African E-M81 lineages, and also other relatively abundant markers (E-M78 and J-M267) from the same region in the indigenous Guanche population, "strongly points to that area [North Africa] as the most probable origin of the Guanche ancestors". In this study, Fregel et al. estimated that, based on Y-chromosome and mtDNA haplogroup frequencies, the relative female and male indigenous Guanche contributions to the present-day Canary Islands populations was respectively of 41.8% and 16.1%.[16]

    An autosomal study in 2011 found an average Northwest African influence of about 17% in Canary Islanders with a wide interindividual variation ranging from 0% to 96%. According to the authors, the substantial Northwest African ancestry found for Canary Islanders supports that, despite the aggressive conquest by the Spanish in the 15th century and the subsequent immigration, genetic footprints of the first settlers of the Canary Islands persist in the current inhabitants. Paralleling mtDNA findings, the largest average Northwest African contribution was found for the samples from La Gomera. [17]

    The Guanche people have always interested me!It seems they also liked to mummify their dead and they also built step pyramids.









    http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/esp_guanches_1.htm


    I wonder if they had an ancient connection to the Egyptians and possibly
    the people of Mexico and South America?

    Has anyone tried to see where Guanche DNA plots in Dodecad? This would be of utmost interest, they do represent the pre-Arab inhabitants of Maghreb, before the Saharan slave trade. It would be nice to compare the Guanches to SW European Bell Beakers and check their African admixture.

    Some DNA from other N Africans such as Garamantes would not go amiss. How much African admixture reached the Mediterranean in the Iron Age? Garamantes are usually described in literature as Protomed or Eurafrican, and are compared to the Tuaregs though with narrower nasal apertures (less black mixture?) - their language seems to have been Nilo-Saharan, provocative no?

    The ultra-gracilised Tuareg physique is similar to the Somalis. Coon described the least Negroid strain among Tuaregs:

    The classical Tuareg noble, an ideal type to which many of them, as a matter of fact, belong, has a narrow, high, and but slightly sloping forehead; there are no browridges or very slight ones. The face takes the form of an attenuated pentagon, with the base aloft; prominent malars, a narrow jaw, and a pointed chin produce this form. The unmixed Tuareg are orthognathous, have thin to medium lips, and small teeth, which in older people are often worn to the gums. The nose, which is the most characteristic Tuareg feature, is high-bridged, narrow-rooted, and often convex in the upper segment, while the lower or cartilaginous part is straight, thin-tipped, and depressed at the end, with small wings and oblique, highly excavated nostrils.
    Such a race seems to have entered N Africa with the Capsian and it leans toward Protomediterranid Natufians in the Levant. whereas the stereotype Guanche look, never the majority in the Canaries, was from the earlier Mechtoids.
