    Yes, although DNA per se means nothing. As humans, we share 99.9% of our DNA and races don't exist, so it doesn't matter if someone had an African or Indigenous American ancestor in the XVIII century. Like most Puerto Ricans and Argentinians, many Brazilians carry an Indigenous American mtDNA haplogroup but they have no connection to any actual tribe. Likewise, many are descended from African slaves, but that doesn't mean they're culturally "African". These slaves would rarely teach their native language and culture to their children.

    Don't listen to the moron wobafetty. Contemporary Africans only coalesced nine thousand years ago. The early hominids who left Africa for Eurasia weren't "black" (Negroe).

    Europeans and Asians are descendants of Africans, north and south Americans are descendants of Europeans, Asians (Asians assumed at least 15k years ago known as the native Americans before Europeans arrived. They likely crossed the ocean during ice ages. Everything in that case means we are all descendants of Africans. This is all just one theory though.
