Hi, yes tribes.
that’s what it seems like for many Pakistanis.
Hi, I’m not exactly sure the differences between the two.
I took the ancestry exam with ancestry.com and then shared my dna results with the university and they posted this.
My Ancestry results show 70% central Asian and 30% northern / western Indian. It’s somehow misleading because during the past 1000 years, you had Muslim traders and soldiers settled all over India so if one of their descendants took this test, it’ll show up as having the closest genetic match to them. They shared the connections I might to other ancestry customers and it was pretty accurate because one of my cousins in Canada shows up lol.
I think the Central Asian heritage that makes up a large proportion of most Pakistanis is more Iranian than it is for example Uzbek or Kazakh.
