The Center of Tribal Analysis has announced the discovery of human remains have been verified through DNA as being that of the Gaanga tribe. Unearthed in an earthquake in October 15, were further tested and have been verified as being descendants of the modern Hunza peoples through mitochondrial matches. The remains date back to 1540 AD.
“We are thrilled to be a part of this monumental discovery,” stated a representative of the Center of Tribal Analysis. “The findings and the mitochondrial fit is extremely exciting as history is revealed before our very eyes.”
The discovery was made in the Karakorum Mountains which lay in the northern borders of Pakistan, the Hunza Valley. Until 2016, there was no real knowledge of the Gaanga tribe which appeared to be lost in time. The recent findings have now linked the Hunza people with their ancestors.
The Center of Tribal Analysis is a group that specializes in the analysis and collection of tribal data in a realm that surpasses the function of social science researchers. The work is conducted with emphasis on understanding the tribal culture and society from which the findings come from while acting in a manner that is acceptable to the tribes.
Some, but not all, discoveries are manipulated by insurgent movements which is something the Center of Tribal Analysis strives to remedy. There are situations that have been encountered where tribes have exhibited violence when excavation was undergone or new projects brought in an influx of workers. Such situations are addressed by the Center and solutions can be sought.
In short, the Center for Tribal Analysis is a peacemaking, peacekeeping organization that buffers the conflicts that can occur when research is being conducted. In New Guinea, foreign mining concessions were addressed and in Nigeria’s Delta, natives reacted angrily to foreign oil exploitation. The Center stepped in to work toward helping the humanitarian aspects of the situations, reaching negotiations and compromises and making sure the remote tribes are not insulted nor harmed and their resources and sacred grounds suffer no damage either.
