      In a 2004 article the geneticist Rebecca Cann mentions that the Cayapa
      of Ecuador,who use bark cloth [kapa],the outrigger canoe and tattoo
      their bodies with symbols similar to those in the Pacific,possess no
      European or Black Carib genetic markers.They have the major mtDNA
      haplogroup commonly found in Remote Oceania.There is no evidence of
      Pacific male [Y chromosome] markers among the Cayapa.[if a canoe load
      of people made the journey acrooss the Pacific,the locals could have
      killed the males and acquired the females??]
      Does anyone have any information about the Cayapa and a "possible"
      Polynesian genetic link?
