    There's this study on Ethiopian genetics in the context of cultural/linguistic diversity. Amhara/Omoro are among the ones that score highest in the Egyptian+West Eurasian components (see Figure 3).

    thanks for the study bro but right now i would like to know which modern day MENA population makes the best proxy for the MENA component that makes up cushitics, Kinda like how the nilotic anuak population works as a good proxy for the AEA (ancient east african) component that makes up cushitics

    Egyptian aren't a good proxy for Cushitic ancestry.

    The cushitic ancestry is most similar to natufians but even they aren't representative of our ancestry.

    We need more samples until we are able to tell their genetic make up

    could they've been closer to the iberomaurusian population instead?
