Eduardo from Chicago, IL

I want to get in touch with my cultural roots. A heritage test will let me do that.

My family has told me that I have Native American ancestors. With your help, I can take a DNA test to learn more about who I am.

My need and situation

My Name is Eduardo and I am 45 years old. I am seeking to connect to my heritage and cultural background, which I have been told is Native American. I am currently looking for employment and increased housing stability.

I hope to find mental peace with my heritage and put an end to long-standing family disputes.

I need support covering the cost of my DNA test to verify my cultural background.

Meeting this need will help me because connecting with my tribe would help me connect with resources surrounding my cultural background and Native American roots. This peace of mind will give me a better perspective for the future as I look for housing, employment and cultural connection and enhancement.

I believe Eduardo would benefit greatly from this DNA test as it would support his personal journey of self-discovery.
