    Cool Meiramgul

    I watched this on PBS, it was really cool. They searched for a person likely to be related to the 'Amazon' people among the nomadic Mongols. They found a blonde girl among the Mongols and tested her Mitochondrial DNA against DNA pulled from the remains of an ancient Sarmatian female, and got an identical match.

    Q. How did you feel when the link was established with the 9-year-old girl, Meiramgul?

    A. I didn't have any idea when we started doing the DNA that we would find this very rare genetic link between the women from the excavation with Meiramgul and her mom. That was a complete surprise for everyone. ... I had known that nomadic people had a great diversity. As they traveled, they encountered other populations and there was bound to be intermarriage. ... I did not expect anything to be so widely dispersed, that was really further than I had anticipated.

    Q. What was she like and what is life like in her village?

    A. She's a very nice little girl, very helpful with her family, always wanting to do something and that's very typical of that population. It's a lifestyle of complete simplicity. Her family [has] no contact with urban areas. In general, that society doesn't change very much. They're not subject to the kind of things that induce change, such as television, computers, Internet, radio, transportation. They're not subject to many outside influences. I doubt if Meiramgul had ever seen a Westerner before.

    I watched this program as well. Most interesting indeed. I found it somewhat ironic though that PBS would air this program with obvious phenotypic/genetic racial undertones and then the next night, air "Race: The Power of an Illusion"....

    Most sources about Scythians and Sarmatians mention both Iranian and Ugric-speaking tribes among these peoples.
