MORAGA, MAURICIO; DE SAINT PIERRE, MICHELLE; TORRES, FRANCISCO  y  RIOS, JUAN. KINSHIP BY MATERNAL VIA BETWEEN THE LAST DESCENDANTS OF KAWÉSKAR ETHNICITY AND BURIALS IN THE PATAGONIAN CHANNELS: EVIDENCE FROM THE STUDY OF MITOCHONDRIAL LINEAGES. Magallania [online]. 2010, vol.38, n.2, pp. 103-114. ISSN 0718-2244.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22442010000200006.

This work presents the results obtained from mitochondrial DNA study of Kawésqar skeletal samples from Englefield island, Cueva de la Cruz, Captain Aracena island and Canal Maule-1; and living individuals of Kawésqar group. The results show a great similarity between the mitochondrial DNA sequences of both living individuals and the old samples. The comparison with other published sequences for south American aboriginal populations confirms the results and strongly suggests that there is a maternal kinship between the samples and the current Kawésqar.

Palabras llave : ancient DNA; mitochondrial DNA; marine hunter-gatherer; amerindian haplogroups; Kawésqar.
