Source: THE THUYA GENE (DNA Consultants-Home of the DNA Fingerprint Test) 2021 A.D.
From the source, “One of the autosomal ancestry markers prominent in the Royal Egyptian families of the New Kingdom, this not-so-rare gene is Central African in origin and was passed to Thuya from her forebears, Queens of Upper and Lower Egypt and High Priestesses of Hathor, the Mother Goddess. Thuya passed it to her grandson Akhenaten and great-grandson Tutankhamun, among others, as documented in a forensic study of the Amarna mummies by Zahi Hawass, head of the Supreme Council of Antiquities in Cairo, in 2010. Today, its highest incidence is in Somalians at nearly 50%. It is found in 40% of Muslim Egyptians. On average, 1 in 3 Africans or African Americans carries it. It crops up in high concentrations in many places around the world such as the Basque region (41%) and in Melungeons (31%, similar to Middle Easterners), but is present at only low levels in East and South Asia, as well as Native America. Its lowest frequency is in the Chukchi of Siberia (3%)…
The Thuya Gene is Sub-Saharan African with a low frequency in North Africa and the Old Near East and spotty distribution elsewhere except it is uniformly low in India and points east.“
This source can be used to highlight the notion that “black” ancestry existed in New Kingdom Egypt’s royal family. This source can also be used to highlight the notion that if 1 in 3 Africans or African Americans carries this gene, that could indicate some form of migration hence it supports the case that various groups in Africa and the African Diaspora have ties to ancient Israel because Israel grew as a nation in Egypt. This source also points out that this rare gene is mostly in “sub-Saharan African” peoples, not the northern regions of Africa or the ancient near east which can be used to weaken the notion that many ancient Egyptians looked like the stereotypical depiction of light-skinned north Africans and Middle Eastern peoples.
