Johana Bonnell, Afro-Colombian. Bubi People.

"My name is Johana (Joäna). I was born in Cali, Colombia but raised in Seattle. I traced my lineage and I share African Ancestry with the Bubi Tribe of Equatorial Guinea.

This was amazing to find out about my lineage, because it's the only Spanish-speaking country in Africa; being Afro-Colombian, it was a great commonality.

Afro-Colombian day is particularly important to me because it finally shows the world Colombians who look like me represented; and representation where I had not seen it before-growing up in Seattle.

This day is extremely important because it highlights and showcases the contributions of my ancestors and it represents the current Afro-Colombian population and their attributes to the culture through music, food, folklore, and so much more!"

African Ancestry Patri Clan Kit

My Patri Clan Kit arrived on time. Instructions were easy to understand. The only thing I didn't like is that i was not able to add the kit to my Matri Clan account. Now I have to log into two different accounts to retrieve my results.

This feels Unreliable

I haven’t received my order still. I have checked with usps & they have no information on the tracking number that was given to me. I haven’t been able to track this order at all. Neither usps or this company has been able to tell me that status of my package( which is not cheap & should have better customer service & tracking status information). I ordered this product 3 weeks ago & I have no clue what is going on with my purchase, not even any emails from this company to confirm or ensures the safety of sensitive information, being this is a DNA test.
