Blood Tests: Native American Gamble

Steve Jones investigates what constitutes Native American blood, then follows three individuals as they use DNA matching of a female gene to attempt to confirm a genetic link between themselves and their Pequot ancestors. How Native Americans were disconnected from their heritage is examined by several tribal members, and the point is made that some want to establish their Indian bloodlines to share in the growing profits from casino gambling on reservations. Native American activist Tom Porter stresses the importance of cultural connections, and predicts the imminent extinction of the Mohawk culture. Original BBC broadcast title: Indian Roulette. (50 minutes)
