I think it's worth it. Very interesting. My husband's mtDNA line is
mostly from the Makah Tribe, but it goes back to his 3rd-great-grandma who
was from the Quileute Tribe. Don't know where they might have been before
that (if anywhere else). I don't know anyone else (besides you and my
husband) from the NW Coast tribes that have been tested. There are some
results in the mtDNA concordance from Port Alberni, Canada, but that's all
I've really seen.
This would be great for the small tribes like Snohomish and Cowlitz that
need to build their membership base for federal recognition and other purposes.
