Where do we come from...

Our genes come from our hominid ancestors who evolved in Africa at least 5-6 million years ago with a major defining physical feature – the ability to walk efficiently on two legs. Eventually hominids enhanced their capacity to migrate by inventing tools they could carry with them. They also discovered how to transport, create fire, and scaring off more powerful predators.

Various branches of hominids used these physical and cultural achievements in order to spread out all over Africa and much of Europe by 1.5 million years ago. Migration has always been central to human identity, and we are all the same human species despite superficial differences among groups of people.
