Actually, although I share the same DNA from one continent (Africa) I would lack the Denisovan connection. New Zealanders would have that connection if "native" with "native" Australasian.
Are the "jokes" from Natives or immigrants to that area?
The jokes go back and forth between Australians and New Zealanders and have to do with nationalism, not native peoples. They usually involve sexual relations with sheep. You can google for the jokes, probably.

At least I think they are jokes.

I heard that one difference between neanderthals and homo sapiens [sic] might have been that the later began to use symbolic adornments on the body ("jewelry") which functioned the way a battle cry from a baboon would - to drive off a neanderthal competitor without risk of injury in an actual battle.
Manipulating symbols in other words.
And with our opposable thumbs, we make better jewelry.
