I would have thought that native American would apply to both Canada and the USA, so both, and yes.

There are native Americans all over North America and Central America, and South America, but my native America is specifically from Canada and not the United Sates.

Mine was overwhelmingly Irish, and to a much lesser extent Scotch and English. And that is what my ancestry looks like on paper.

I agree, Native Americans are the original people from the Americas, from Alaska to Argentina.
My Native American DNA is related to the Amazon indians.

I was born in Wecksquageck/Siwanoy (Algonquin) territory but my DNA results came back 75% Scandinavian/25% West European. Go figure.

I was born and live in the US. But, I have zero percent DNA from the Americas. I think that would be the case for most people unless you have some Native American ancestry. In general- from what I know and various DNA Tests- my autosomal DNA is 100% East Asian (a combination of Southern Han and Northern Han with some Non-Han Chinese minorities and some Plains Taiwanese Aborigines ancestry). YDNA: O2a2a1a1a and mtDNA: M7c1c2. Both of my parents are from Taiwan with Han ancestry that came to Taiwan from Fujian Province, China (southeastern China) some 7 generations or more ago and some Taiwanese Plains Aborigines Ancestry (Pingpu people).

My priest was born in Italy and came up 44% Italian. The next biggest chunk was Middle Eastern and then Western European with some Asian tossed in. He said if you look at migrations patterns and trade routes it makes sense.
