Register for Down Under webinar: Ngā aho tāne o Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa: Revitalising connections across the Pacific with Big Y by Elena Fowler


Ko tō ringa ki ngā rākau Pākehā. The history of migration and settlement of Polynesia can make Māori/Polynesian atDNA test results extra challenging to interpret. Learn how the results of a Big Y test from Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) can help untangle the multiple connections with your atDNA matches and trace your male ancestral lines from Aotearoa New Zealand to the wider Pacific and beyond. The presentation draws on our whānau's (family's) experience and whakapapa (genealogy and family history).

About the presenter

ElenaFowler-2021-144x144For as long as she can remember, Elena has been interested in whakapapa (family history and genealogy). Her mum and some of her cousins were passionate about this too and nurtured her interest. They passed on as much as they could to Elena during their lifetimes. In 2017, during a long period of convalescence and admittedly on a bit of a whim (but also mindful of how problematic DNA testing is for us as indigenous peoples), some family members and Elena purchased DNA test kits from Ancestry.com. They discovered the fascinating and exciting world of DNA testing, including how the test results can be used to connect with both known and previously unknown whanaunga (relatives). They received help from many and learnt so much more than they ever expected. They are still learning as a whānau (family) but have also started paying it forward. The presentations are a koha (offering) from their whānau to yours.
