This brief summary does not acknowledge or consider how involved Indigenous peoples from many countries, including the USA and New Zealand, argued this project was a biocolonial violation of their sovereignty and dignity nor how their transnational organizing efforts over several years stopped the HGDP from progressing beyond its initial planning stages (Barker 2004; Harry and Kanehe 2006; Reardon 2001).
RESULTS: We found a significantly higher frequency of the protective AS3MT haplotype in the SAC population (68.7%) compared with the HGDP (14.3%, p < 0.001, Fisher exact test) and Peruvian (50.5%, p < 0.001) populations.
Presumably, the proponents of both the Genographic and HapMap projects know very well that the HGDP met with broad opposition, primarily from indige groups.
to consider one of the more surprising conclusions of the HGDP: Human
To underscore their point, Marks and Harry cleverly mock the disingenuity of the HGDP scientists, who waffle about the existence of "race" to protect their left flank (and keep the research dollars flowing) while publishing research that clearly shows population differences.
In January 1996, I responded to an article in a major Australian newspaper that had stated that the Human Genome Diversity Project (HGDP) threatened Aboriginal beliefs on creation and suggested that the problems of the project could be reduced to a few `public-relations blunders' by naive researchers who put Indigenous people out of sorts with the project.(1) `This analysis', I wrote of the project, 'distorts Indigenous peoples' objection to the HGDP': What the article fails to say is that blood, hair roots and inner-cheek scrapings are taken from Indigenous people under false pretenses.

Referred to by critics as The Vampire Project, the HGDP's mandate includes storing the DNA of disappearing Indigenous populations for future study, reconstructing the history of the world's populations, and determining the origins of existing populations.
The investigators compared variants of the AS3MT gene between 346 SAC Atacamenos and members of several other indigenous populations, including 25 individuals from three Native American populations participating in the Human Genome Diversity Project (HGDP) and 97 individuals from five Peruvian populations with historically lower exposure to arsenic.
