DNA from Guam’s indigenous peoples traced to Taiwan: Study

A team of archeologists from Taiwan and other countries has found that the origins of the Chamorro people in Guam are closely linked to the indigenous peoples of the northern Philippines, whose ancestry can be traced back to Taiwan. In a recent study titled “Ancient DNA from Guam and the peopling of the Pacific,” the research team said DNA tracing suggested that the Chamorros had migrated from Taiwan to the Philippines and crossed the sea to Guam, focustaiwan.tw reported.
