Although the communities in this study are not structured around tribal leadership, as in North America, all samples were collected by indigenous representatives and/or local researchers. For the Aymara population, the samples were collected by E. Vargas Pacheco and M. Villena, two representatives of the Aymara community. The Huilliche-Pehuenche samples correspond to a historical collection of modern DNA samples at the Program of Human Genetics of the University of Chile. All of the participants were healthy individuals, over 18 years of age, and gave their informed consent. The study was approved by the Ethics Committee of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Chile. M.Ap. helped analyze the data while visiting at the University of Chicago.
