ORIGIN A Genetic History of the Americas

by | Read by Tanis Parenteau

History • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Tanis Parenteau's authoritative performance captures the spirit of this informative audiobook. Raff, a professor of anthropology, provides a scientifically driven update of the genetic history of the Americas. The story of the population of the Western hemisphere has been written with a framework of colonization, marginalizing the historical existence of Indigenous peoples. For example, the peopling of the Americas has long been believed to have occurred after the last Ice Age; more current research indicates people have been present long before that time. Here the intentional erasure of Native people in research is held to account. Parenteau's clear performance guides listeners through passages of scientific research and discussion, threading the work of anthropology and genetics.
