Ancient nuclear genomes enable repatriation of Indigenous human remains
For many decades Indigenous people, including Native Americans and Aboriginal Australians, have fought for their return of their ancient people. By sequencing ten ancient nuclear genomes of Aboriginal Australians and 27 mitogenomes from ancient pre-European Aboriginal Australians (up to 1,540 yr BP) of known provenance we demonstrate the feasibility of successfully identifying the geographic origins of unprovenanced ancestral remains using genomic methods.
