    I know of her. She is mostly African of course, the Portuguese and Indian admixtures are smaller amounts. Most black or Afro -Guyanese people are African , with small amounts of Portuguese and Indian dna. But the Afro black Guyanese amount is higher. The Portuguese population of Guyana is like 2%. However, before the Portuguese came to Guyana they were mixed with African from African admixture in Portugal. Guyana has a 7% American Indian Population then a %50 percent East Indian from India population too. Then a 40% Black/Afro Guyanese population that is mostly black but has mixtures too, like African Americans.
    Melanie is more African/Afro-Guyanese though.
