Wrong interpretation. The source says Xiongnu elite have C3, D4, R1a[edit]

Do any of you even read the references. I'm also going to post this on " Turkic people " discussion just in case. It is unbeliavable how you could make such stupid mistakes.

Show me were does it say three Xiongnu elite with R1a? you completely misinterpreted the sourcees

" We analyzed mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), Y-chromosome single nucleotide polymorphisms (Y-SNP), and autosomal short tandem repeats (STR) of three skeletons found in a 2,000-year-old Xiongnu elite cemetery in Duurlig Nars of Northeast Mongolia. This study is one of the first reports of the detailed genetic analysis of ancient human remains using the three types of genetic markers. The DNA analyses revealed that one subject was an ancient male skeleton with maternal U2e1 and paternal R1a1 haplogroups. This is the first genetic evidence that a male of distinctive Indo-European lineages (R1a1) was present in the Xiongnu of Mongolia. This might indicate an Indo-European migration into Northeast Asia 2,000 years ago. Other specimens are a female with mtDNA haplogroup D4 and a male with Y-SNP haplogroup C3 and mtDNA haplogroup D4. Those haplogroups are common in Northeast Asia. There was no close kinship among them. The genetic evidence of U2e1 and R1a1 may help to clarify the migration patterns of Indo-Europeans and ancient East-West contacts of the Xiongnu Empire. Artifacts in the tombs suggested that the Xiongnu had a system of the social stratification. The West Eurasian male might show the racial tolerance of the Xiongnu Empire and some insight into the Xiongnu society. Am J Phys Anthropol, 2010. © 2010 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

Non-information information[edit]

I've been somewhat disappointed by the failure of Wikipedia articles which are about various peoples, to distinguish between the words "language" and "culture."

A language is not a culture.

Extensively describing what language a people speak gives very little useful information about what their culture is. Typically, all these articles say is "with a common culture," and leave it there. That is non-information. Giving an extensive description of languages which frankly, only linguists would be interested in, is in my opinion far removed from what most people want to learn about the meaning of the name of a nation, or group of peoples. I feel it gives a false impression of being "academic" while failing to provide any actual information. This seems to be common to most or even all of these types of articles - on Wikipedia.
