I didn't have any known native american ancestry, Is it just static or is it real?

It might be real but it could certainly be from your Filipino-Chinese ancestry -- the algorithm sometimes struggles to distinguish Native American and Asian. If you were to test one parent, if possible, you could use the phased view to see.

Both tests agree, but to verify the NA, I would suggest sending your zipped files to Dr. Doug McDonald of the University of Illinois, outlining your general ancestry and asking him to run his BGA analysis specifically looking for Native American ancestry.

Welcome to Anthrogenica :)

I can't tell you anything that AJL hasn't already said better. But I will say this much: I too, am a 1/2 East Asian + 1/2 American mix. I only got 0.3% Native American on my Ancestry Composition on 23andme (it was 0.4% on speculative), which is less than what you got, even on the conservative setting. I do have a documented Chickasaw ancestor from the 1800s.
