Bandeirantes & Indian Ancestors

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".

Sometimes the Brazilian Amerindian mtDNA could get access to the top Nobility in Portugal too. The Marquês de Pombal, an 18th century Portuguese powerful statesman had a Brazilian Amerindian mtDNA from the early 1500's (Genealogias Clássicas). He was related to Pernambuco's Albuquerque de Maranhão family, a top mixed family from the first Brazilian nobility, Conquistadores do Maranhão. The Marquis of Pombal abolished the differences between Old Christians and New Christians and he abolished or diminished the Amerindian slavery in Brazil and recognized the Indians as subjects of the Empire

Rarity and nobility in the Old and New World ?

There’s a possible and necessary connection between rarity and nobility in Western Europe. If the genesis of the European historical nobility is related to ethnic war in the fall of the Western Roman Empire, as certain documentation or imaginary prescribes, so a deep history of the European social stratification would be revealed in terms of distinct STR-SNPs. Or the European social structure is completely randomic in terms of the STR-SNP distribution or there’s a historical structure of political differentiation in the formation of the European demographics, perhaps not randomic but not as rigid as the DNA differentiation of the Indian castes. The supposed DNA of Louis XVI is a showcase under investigation. If the conventional genealogies of the royalty were correct (what is doubtful in several cases), the relative rarity of the “royal” lineage is a documented fact. The political action of elites can shape ethnic, national, linguistic, cultural or religious identities. We can assess the demographic impact in Europe and in America of “New” European groups, with some distinct genetic profiles, like the Jews and Roma (Gypsies) with very interesting histories. Conventional Genealogy Degree Zero is a good starting point. What is narrated of the origins of the first nobility ? In Portugal the first documented genealogy, O Livro Velho das Linhagens, described the principal family of the Sousãos in the heart of the Minho, coming from Uffo Belfager (most probably an old Suebi name), a man that lived in the 800’s. Another decisive lineage was the Bragançãos, from the strategic territory of Bragança. The founder was D. Alam, the kidnapper of an Armenian Princess. The legends and references are clearly situated in the stronghold of Bragança as a supposed Alanic lordship that enabled the creation of the Kingdom of Portugal, the first ethno-national State in Europe with a continuous history. language and political frontier. Brazil has been the most aristocratic society in the New World, a new territory and a new frontier where the Ancien Regime planted deep roots. Brazil created a new local nobility and reproduced the old social structures. The Brazilian D. Pedro II would had the same Y DNA of Louis XVI. Not only the top-top European pedigrees have been in Brazil, but we can try to recognize and detect the DNA impact of the outsiders of the Roman Empire, groups like the Jewish and Roma contributions and especially other “exotic” groups arriving in Iberia as invaders and conquerors. The old Brazilian Colonial Elite had a unique genetic profile in the world, mostly composed by Portuguese and other European (Southern and Northern) contributions with small and distant, but regular Amerindian and African little segments. No other American Colonial Elite has had exactly the same genetic profile, the same history, the same proportions, the same expansion and the same number. It’s a Brazilian demography, the product of a specific aristocratic society of the Ancien Regime. The Brazilian mtDNA is the closest thing to a “racial democracy” in the world. The assimetry of the Brazilian mtDNA with the Brazilian Y DNA, the creator of the Brazilian state-society in terms of the preservation of the same language, religion, political institutions, army and the responsibility of the conquest and colonization of the big Brazilian territory. Mestiçagem is mainstream in Brazil and that’s a positive value. The Suebi and Alans were an integrant part in the formation of the Portuguese-Brazilian people. A region without diversity as in the case of a big concentration of R1b only, would not be able to create a proper independent or autonomous nobility and those places would not be able to keep and create a proper ethno-national State (and later to build up an own Empire) with it’s own institutions and language, what happened in parts of the Western Atlantic high % R1b façade, in places and regions where the R1b native peasantry were almost total without an internalised outside warrior nobility.
The Portuguese Suebi DNA will match some Northern European regions. The Portuguese Alan DNA would be exceptionally rare.
Why Y DNA J1b and others eventually can be related to the Alans in the Portuguese-Brazilian male stock ?
1 – Extreme rare haplogroup and extreme rare haplotypes. Almost total isolation in Western Europe. An exotic Caucasian-Caspian Northern Middle Eastern island in a sea of Western Atlantic Iberian R1b P-3122 – The source area was located in the Caucasus, Eastern Anatolia, Armenia, Caspian Sea. They came far from the East to the extreme West without a connection with Jews (Judaism) or Arabs (Islamism), both also integrated and incorporated in the Portuguese and Brazilian populations in different waves.3 – No close matches outside of the ethnic group. Outside the Portuguese-Brazilian haplotypes, the closest combination is found only within certain Northern Iranian populations4 – The temporal distance of the STR genetic distances separating the Portuguese-Brazilian cases and the Iranians is estimated between 1600-2000 years5 - Relative reproductive success and verifiable regular frequencies in any population of Portuguese-Brazilian origin at regular rates.
6 – Status quo and longue durée of the exotic DNA ? Yes or no ?
