DNA Research and the Chumash

This interesting article appeared in the LA Times while I was out of town. It discusses the work Dr. John Johnson of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History and others are doing with mitochondrial DNA in living Native Americans and prehistoric remains and what it has to say about the peopling of the New World. Johnson tells me he believes his data supports the hypothesis of a coastal migration.

I have done extensive research over the years, and my findings also show a peopling of North America by coastal migration--all coasts, East, West, the Gulf of Mexico and many islets of northern, eastern and western Canada.
