Another view from the first American experience in the 1500's
1 - The Amerindian genetic mark is a central element in the first and
principal families of the American Continent.
2 - The Amerindian genetic mark represents the continuation of the old
Amerindian structures of power and the formation of the main connections of
antiquity in the land as a high status symbol of the new American nobility
or American gentry created in the New World.
3 - Tribal daughters, named and documented real Amerindian "princesses",
were the key element, the zero degree point of the American conventional
genealogy. The conquerors, founders and the first colonists in the making of
America in the 1500's and 1600's are listed, narrated and described in the
oldest written genealogies.
4 - The demographic explosion of the first American settlers. The
territorial expansion and the big mass European migration. The Amerindian
genetic mark became a genetic souvenir and a heritage. As the article said:
"We don't look Indian by any means, but to feel that, you get a sense of how
varied and rich your culture can be..."
5 - The Europeization of the American population. The first mixed American
Elite related to tribal chiefs and the first navigators and discoverers is
the social, economic, ethnic, political, cultural and moral basis of the new
ruling class. The first families and the land are one.
6 - It's extremely rare to keep the first Colonial founder Amerindian mark
in the subsequent Europeization of the continent. The Europeization of the
entire population as in parts of North America, Southern Brazil, Argentina,
Uruguay or the Europeization of the elites as in some parts like Rio de
Janeiro. After five centuries of European migration to America only some
endogamic social groups can keep and preserve a small amount of the first
Colonial Amerindian autosomal DNA (detected as 1-4% in labs like 23andMe) or
keep Amerindian mtDNA structured from long matrilocal lineages of the first
American historical power elites. That's the original Amerindian mtDNA
coming from the Casa Grande, the matrons, the matriarchs, the old American
dames with very ancient and deep roots in the land and established
conventional genealogies in the elites.
7 - The colonization of Brazil and the creation of a new authentic Brazilian
warrior nobility/elite of mixed origins, the Bandeirantes from São Paulo de
Piratininga, where the pre-Columbian tribal Tupi chief Tibiriçá is buried
under the crypt of the oldest and most important temple of the city of São
Paulo, the first family and the first genealogy of Salvador da Bahia, os
Caramurús and the mixed family of the Albuquerque Maranhão, from Pernambuco.
All had extreme high status ranking in the Portuguese Empire and they were
the Comandos of the military expansion of Brazil in wars against the
Spanish, French and Dutch Empires in the incessant South American wars of
the 1500's, 1600's and 1700's. Perhaps Pocahontas in Virginia, North
America, could have a similar history to the raising of the Brazilian
Colonial elite. In Mexico, Quebec, Paraguay and in other parts similar
social Euro-American elites had been created with more or less success in
the creation of new ethno-national States in the American continent.
8 - In the early 1800's the slaver aristocratic project of the Ancient
Regime survived only in Brazil, in the Southern United States and in some
remanescent islands of the Spanish Empire like Cuba and Puerto Rico. In the
19th century only Brazil kept the African traffic until 1850 and the slavery
until 1888. After the ancient power of Imperial Rome, Imperial Brazil was
the world's biggest slaveholder society ruled by a new local nobility and a
new population created with big Amerindian and African populational stocks.
9 - Anyway the small Amerindian component is a must to a classical Brazilian
genealogy coming from the 1500's, 1600's, o "Sainete Brasílico" is a
comprobatory document for the Brazilian old stock "Quinhentão",
