Narrative of a Genome IV: The final chapter

Posted on Updated on

Our fathers dispersed from Eastern Africa, in two directions South Asia and West Africa. DE-YAP (Y-DNA) or Ounania was the father of haplogroups D* and E* an industrious culture which arose some 100,000 years ago in the moist Southeastern Sahara, before it dried out. Deepak ( haplogroup D*) although, conceived in Africa wasn’t induced there, instead emerged in South Asia. Ounania (DE-YAP) the father of both, whose skin was black, and hair was kinky curly for no other reason than survival in an arid sun rich climate, started an industrious culture from Saharan Africa to South India. Deepak (haplogroup D) migrated out of Africa and into Asia and can be found in high frequencies in populations like Tibet. Haplogroup (E*) let’s call him Oduduwa stayed home in Africa and is found primarily in Central and West Africa and in fewer frequencies in parts of Asia, and Europe, but is the predominant haplogroup amongst African-American males.

About 100,000 years ago haplogroup DE-YAP (YDNA) Ounania, was the long awaited son of haplogroup CT let’s call him Cushi. Ounania descended from (haplogroup CT), Cushi of Ethiopian origin and was carried all over the world. What more could a father do for his son? But equip him with all things necessary for survival. Haplogroup DE-YAP (Y-DNA) did just that, loaded both of his offspring with the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) mutations (genetic variations that occur between species) M116.2, M149, M155, M191/P86 P252/U174 M180/P88, like rounds in the chamber our fathers were defined. No one could say one was a subclade of the other! Those who are often referred to by their most well-known unique event polymorphism (UEP) which make them who they are, the Y chromosome Alu polymorphism (YAP). The ability to create offspring with traits different from the parent stock. These two brothers D and E have the ability to do just that.

The Yorubas maintain an oral history of being the descendants of Lamarudu a king of the East whose son Odudua, the ancestor of the Yorubas, the Kings of Gogobiri, and of the Kukawa, two tribes in Hausa country originated. It is said that Odudua desired to worship in the traditional religion respecting idols but his father Lamarudu forbade it. A religious war ensued and inadvertently Lamaradu was murdered. Odudua was forced to flee he and his children. They fled to Nigeria and founded Oyo, Ile Ife, and Yoruba.


Our most distant ancestor Alfred Bass was haplogroup E1b1a7a (Y-DNA) so is our father Roosevelt Bass Jr. and our father’s father all descended from a common male ancestor taken from Gabon Nigeria in the region of Yoruba and brought to the United States. Recently, I discovered a male cousin match on 23 and me in my father Roosevelt Bass’s Relative Finder whose ancestry is from Ecuador in South America. Africans were trafficked to Ecuador twice once in the fifteenth century and again in the seventeenth century. This cousin is also E1b1a7a (Y-DNA) like my dad and brothers. He says that there live a people of Idoma origin in Palenque de San Basilia who are the descendants of escaped slaves who marooned there after escaping slavery during the first fleet of African traffick to South America. The Idoma inhabit lower and western areas of Benue State Nigeria. The Palenque speak a Bantu creole language mixed with Spanish.

    Did you find a yorubawi match to determine you were yorubawi? and if you did , @ how many markers ?

      I do. He shows in my brothers Ancestry Finder on 23 and me from Nigeria 5.1 cM on 1 segment. I’m delighted!

        How many markers do you match at though 12, 25,37, 67, 111? and do you have other matches?

        Unfortunately, we are not sharing and his profile is private. If you’re familiar with the tools available on 23 and me, unless a persons profile is public you can’t invite them to share. He shows on a tool called Ancestry Labs only as long as I do not check the box which states “Only show segments belonging to public individuals.” Under Advanced Controls.

    You mudt know that “E1B1A7A,” is rare in West Africa! It appears they went all out to capture prople of this paticulsr Bloodline!!!

      My dad, brothers, and nephews are all haplogroup E1b1a7a. This haplogroup is primarily of African origin, it originated in East Africa, and is an early branch of the Y-DNA lineage that migrated to Western Africa from the East 30,000 to 40,000 years ago. Haplogroup E* is abundant in all areas of Africa. Although, haplogroup E primarily abounds in Africa it is found also in Europe and in Asia. I have an African cousin who is of Yoruba origin having all four grandparents from the area of Ijeshaland, Nigeria who is a haplogroup E1b1a7a male and he is also an L3b1a mtDNA haplogroup just like my brothers and myself. Haplogroup E is only three genetic single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP’s) away from it’s great great great great paternal progenitor haplogroup A which proceeds it. Haplogroup E* is ABUNDANT in ALL regions of Africa. I am aware where you obtained your information but what you have read is old, you should always check for new information and check the source of the information before coming to a conclusion. If you want more info read this: this article is dated 27 Jul 2014. What you read was on Answers 2013, until more Africans DNA test we should not make assumptions of rarity.

        The haplogroups, I believe, have exaggerated info about themselves. The relation of a person who shares the same haplogroup does not mean closeness, but a shared grandfather from too long ago in which dna can not tell you no more. you have to go to the history of the people to see if the dna matches the knowledge of the lineage keepers of that group. haplogroups are deep ancestry lineages meaning its too far back and all your cousins are in different nations by now. to find more closeness and relativeness to a time more closer to ours, then you have to look at haplotype matches and markers not less than 25. for geneticist to say this marker is from africa , europe , asia is very misleading. i talked to ftdna and literally had to beg the worker to admit that the geographical labeling of lineages is misleading. they label them european or african, not because they are actually that, but they label them as such because the current population who posses these lineages are currently called this in modern times, when in reality the most closest ancestors of these populations would have never called or agreed to being related to each other as a african or a european or a asian. geneticist go out of their lane when they start telling people their origins, because dna does not do that. dna simply tell you how close you are related to a current person, then maybe you can go from there if the relative has more family knowledge. so simply sharing a haplogroup just means you share few haplotypes that distinguish that lineage shared by millions of people. a person has to find more closer matches to themselves get as much info from these matches and correspond it with history and oral traditions from lineage keepers.

    My Y-DNA E1b1a7a share 100% with the Bamileke tribe of Cameroon, according to the test results with:

    July 29, 2014 at 12:14 am

    I’m very happy to be 100% Bamileke tribe of Cameroon E1b1a7a 🙂

    July 29, 2014 at 12:17 am

    course also share my E1b1a with Ramses III Pharaoh 🙂

    the geneticist only tell you african this and that, because they are all followers of the out-of-africa theory. yes, it is what it says it is, a mere theory. odd how when you dig into the oral bards of the origins of the current nations(tribes)you will find that over half of them are immigrants to the land. they have a lot of contradictions in their methods. they tell you J haplogroup is semitic because of correspondence of dna material with history, but they shun history and go strictly “interpretation” of dna samples when it comes to the current african populous. just E1B1A7A alone is found in a considerable amount of tribes members in the arabian peninsula and they are people who look the phenotype of the land and know nothing of africa. this contradicts a lot of the out -of-africa theory.

      Interesting your comment friend Alaujani

      alaujani, Just as a paper trail is used to trace our ancestral lineages, fossilized remains are used to trace our human origins, and the origins of mankind are proven to be from the African continent. Also, DNA science has proven Africa as the origin of all human beings. A man of African descent born in South Carolina, surnamed Perry took a DNA test recently, and found that he was haplogroup A00 and that the origins of that particular haplogroup can be traced back 338,000 years to a population living in a tiny area of Western Cameroon. The out-of-Africa theory is correct and hasn’t been disproven. Even the Chinese, DNA test have proven are of a Nigerian origin . DNA haplogroups has nothing to do with skin color, or how we choose to self identify.

    @Alaujani, you raise some excellent points, thoughts that i’ve pondered myself – specifically the gross contradictions. One very clear one is haplogroup E period. There seems to be a consensus that E is most prevalent on the continent of Africa and E1b1a (so-called African lineage) had its origins in the East. Yet you have certain geneticists that parse out specific E subclades and dubbed them, for instance, as “jewish” (from an Askhanazi point of reference) . Yet there are many so-called “jews” (mainly European) that hail from J and R haplogroups (and respective subclades). If that were the case, then this tiny group of E carriers fused into the European populations (dark skinned ones at that) and would suggest that the so-called ancient Yisraelites were primarily within this haplogroup (E). But the POINT is made to separate E-M2 (E1b1a) from E-215 (E1b1b) so as to show no relationship, since the latter is supposedly linked to ancient israel and other so-called ancient near eastern cultures. Especially, people of “African descent” will need to learn how to read between the lines because there’s some serious misleading going on in the name of “science” relative to genetic genealogy.

      @Eric Africa encompasses portions of the Middle East. Prior to World War II the Middle East was termed the Near East, and in the 20th century modern Western geographers redefined it , it is they who designate boundaries and set geographic markers, when realistically Israel is on the Continent of Africa. There is truly no such place as a Middle East. Haplogroup E had its origins in East Africa near the horn of Africa.

      It wasn’t until the mid 20th century that the Middle East was commonly defined to include territories of Turkey, Cyprus, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Israel, the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, Jordan, Egypt (Africa), Sudan, (Africa) Libya, (Africa) and the various states and territories of Arabia proper (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Yemen, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, and the Trucial States, or Trucial Oman [now United Arab Emirates]).

      Jewish or Jew is not an ethnicity it is a religion. Many people have converted to this religious affiliation and are not Hebraic or Yehudi as were the original Jews of Judah. There are several sects of the Jewish religion, including Kaifeng Jew (Chinese) and Cochin Jew (Indian), Ashkenazi, (German) Sephardic (Spain), and also the Jews of Nigeria, the so-called African Falasha Jews (Beta-Israel), Lemba, and the religious beginnings of the Jews are such Read Dr Ben, Dr. Yosef Ben Jochannan and also
