              Sahin has pretty much turkic dna than any others. Central asian + native american. Just look at sahins mother she is pretty mongoloid. And Indians were originaly from siberia so it makes sense.
              And the greek dna is pretty normal. Turks live with greeks side by side. but it doesnt makes him greek.

                                        It depends on where your family originates from. My family is from Thrace and Smyrna. I had one of these done recently and had 55% Greek/Italian, 25% Western Slavic, 10% Caucasus, And the remaining 10% was Western(Middle East) & Central Asian scattered all over the place.

                                        Someone from North East Turkey will have a completely different result, mostly caucasus. Someone from South East Turkey, will have even way more different, probably lots of Persian/Arab/Levantine. But what is persistent among Turks is that... most of us only have around 5-15% of actual Turkic/Central Asian blood :)

                                                      This is a more ancient story. Ancient Rome has added syrian land mainly for German and Celtic veteran soldiers, and vice versa, Middle Eastern and Egyptian origin veterans got ownership of land in german provinces.

                                                    I don’t know exactly why do many people surprise when they find out Nuri’s Native american genes? Natives of Central asia and Siberia (ancestors of Turks) are relatives with American natives and they had connection between each other with Bering Alaska line. Amerindiens and Turanid race is nearly the same. All in all that means Turkic people have connection with Mayas, Aztecas, Incas etc...

                                                      The genetics aren't identical. Other populations contributed to their genetics apart from mongoloid populations.

                                                      The ancestors of Turkic tribes (very little to do with Turkey tho) are from west Mongolia not Siberia. The ancestors of the Native American (Q), Uralic tribes (N1), and inuit are from Siberia.

                                                      Native Americans are racially closer to East Asians (Mongoloid race). But not all turkic tribes are pure Mongoloids. As turkic tribes came closer to central Asia they mixed with Caucasoid races, so now they less close relation to native Americans (Indians) as the original mongoloid races had in the past.

                                                      Wow I am so surprised about Nuri! I clicked this video just to see if he has some North Caucasian traits in his DNA, then he says he has Chechen ancestors - like myself :-O Being a Chechen from Turkey myself I never knew that!

                                                        Apfel Minze It said on his family tree that one of his ancestors was born in the Caucasus ( 3:40 ), probably in Chechnya since Nuri himself says he has Chechen ancestry. That makes him at least “partly” Chechen, because the DNA results also show that his ancestors have mixed with Turks. That 37,5% West Asia construct must be pointing at his Caucasian/Chechen ancestry. MyHeritageDNA isn’t that detailed so unfortunately Caucasus comes under one of the other regions in the near-by areas. Also, Shamil is a popular name used by North Caucasians, especially in the diaspora. Several of Nuri’s ancestors have this name. I myself am born to parents born and raised in Turkey, but I know that noone mixed with Turks or other ethnicities on neither my paternal nor maternal side since my ancestors were exiled from the Caucasus to the Ottoman Empire in 1864. I know I’m a mix of Chechen, Abkhazian and Lezghian genes, but I’d love to take one of these DNA tests to get to know more!
