David:

Close. The Mohawk descendant about whom I was writing, who tested as
"East Asian," but not "Native American," is your uncle, Dale Williamson.
Charles's DNAPrint Log states that he has ONLY "IE" and "NA"
ancestry--so HIS "EA" percentage could not have come from "East Asian"
ancestors--in modern times.

I take your point about "full-blood" Mohawks, but testing
"majority-ancestry-Mohawk" people would reveal, just as well, whether or
not Mohawks test as "EA" or "NA" or both--or neither.
