Several groups have published studies of mtDNA inheritance re: timing of 
Amerindian crossings of the Bering Straight into Alaska, where the 
Polynesians came from (S. America vs. Asia--they are of Asian origin 
according to mtDNA analyses).  I believe others have investigated 
population interrelationships in a number of African groups (such as 
Pygmy tribes).  A literature search on mtDNA inheritance should turn up 
the refs.
