About this page
Clan Aiyana is one of the 36 mtDNA groups (or clans) identified so far. As of 26 Aug 2003, the Oxford Ancestors searchable database lists 39 matches for Aiyana.
According to Oxford Ancestors:
The descendants of four clans - Chochmingwu, Djigonasee, Aiyana and Ina - dominate the Native Americans. Also, about 1% of Native Americans are found to belong to the clan of Xenia, which had its origins on the borders of Europe and Asia. The clans of Chochminwu, Djigonasee and Aiyana can all be found in modern inhabitants of Siberia and Alaska, but this is not the case for Ina. Her descendants are found in South and Central America, but only as far north as Vancouver Island on the north-west Pacific coast. Intriguingly, this same clan is also the one that is closely associated with the colonisation of the Polynesian islands from Southeast Asia.
The natives of the Far East [Asia] are predominantly descended from Djigonasee, but there is considerable representation from the "Native American" clans of Ina and Aiyana, and from six further clans -- Fufei, Yumi, Nene, Malaxshmi, Emiko and Gaia.
