Abstract

IN the course of serological work on various Chibcha-Indian tribes of Colombia it was found that the blood of 6 out of 113 Ica Indians, inhabitants of the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta, reacted with anti-D and anti-c sera but failed to react with anti-C, anti-E, and anti-e sera. Further laboratory work carried out at the Caracas Blood Bank as well as in the Blood Group Research Unit of the Lister Institute of London and at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York has demonstrated that the six samples previously mentioned reacted with anti-f and with some anti-e sera as well.
