Pablo González Casanova Henríquez
"How many people are needed for one individual to be here today."
My cousin, Pablo González Casanova Henríquez, presents a detailed example of a genealogical tree for any person's ancestors. Back in 1992, I offered the same example as an adviser to the World Council of Indigenous Peoples in Ottawa, Canada. I chose this example in relation to the 500 Years events around the discovery [sic] of America. The purpose of the example back then was to illustrate the difficulty in conceiving the concept of a 'pure race' within a given People of a country or nation. Another purpose was to illustrate the concept of process in the development of a given individual. Even though our individuality is significant, we are the product of an historical process that involves many more individuals than we are usually apt to recognize. I was extremely pleased to read Pablo's example when he sent it to me today. Here it is for all to contemplate one's own individual worth.

Considerando un promedio de 20 años por generación, el árbol de los padres-madres se estima como muestra en la tabla.
