Chapter 4 describes National Geographic’s Genographic Project and the politics of race and indigeneity in that global human genetic diversity research project. It deconstructs Genographic discourses, images, and video in order to highlight how indigeneity gets articulated as a genetic condition by this project in ways that undermine social and political definitions of indigeneity, which are crucial for indigenous peoples’ survival.
