Haplogroup A2a5 is an Native Americas branch on the maternal tree of humanity. This young branch of the tree was born between 250 and 1,750 years ago to a woman who lived among the Athabaskan language speakers in what is now Canada. (Achilli et al., 2013)

Information on the lineage comes from two published studies. The first found the lineage in the Apache population of New Mexico and Arizona (Tamm et al., 2007). The second study was Achilli et al., 2013. The authors did extensive testing of maternal lineages of native peoples in North America. They found members of the lineage in the Navajo of the American Southwest and the Cree and Secwepemc (Shuswap) of Canada. All of these speak languages that belong to the Athabaskan language family. They also found members of the line in the general population in the United States states of New Mexico, Arizona, California, and Texas.

In the Geno 2 data set, members of this line have maternal origins in Canada, Mexico, and the United States.

mtDNA Haplogroup A2a5 Data Sources

GenBank Samples

GenBank is a database of genetic sequence data. It is run by the United States National Institute of Health. It serves as the main repository for mtDNA full sequence profiles. Samples come both from published academic literature and donations from genetic genealogy community members. In addition to GenBank samples, listings below may include other samples published but not submitted to GenBank such as those from the HapMap project.

Note: GenBank results currently use Phylotree build 16. I am working on changing results over to build 17.
