The team found that the boy belonged to a population from withc many contemporary Native Amerians descended -- including -- Doyle -- and is closely related to all indigenous American populations.  Doyle is also a participant in the genetic research being done in Denmark. Most recently, he has traveled to Siberia and Denmark, following up on studies being conducted on the ancestral connections between the Anzik boy and modern tribal people.  His lecture will focus on where the study stands as of 2015, as well as his work with the geneticists at the University of Copenhagen.
