Time for the Academics to listen to what the people themselves say, in Panama, there is a tribe called the Bokota who said they came from the north in Meso-America, and in North America, the Lakota (you call them 'Sioux') say they came from the south in Meso-America...I see the relevance here (and the Nahua people in Mexico still have the sweat lodge - as do the Lakotas and others in North America..the Nahua (descendants of the Aztecs) , and I can cite hundreds of other examples, Tiwanaku is the oldest city on Earth - 10,000 years by Geographical calculations as it was a port for Lake Titicaca - which was last at the level of Tiwanaku 10,000 years ago. The word itself is a Lokono word meaning - a place of uneven ground'.. I've been there to Tiwanaku and it IS a place of uneven ground.


A few hundred miles downhill from Tiwanaku you get to Amazonian Bolivia...Anthropologists said the origins of the Lokono are in this area (roughly around 10,000 years ago when habitation of Tiwanaku ceased)...and the ancestral tribe - whom we can only refer to as 'The People of Tiwanaku' migrated down the Andes into the area known as Amazonian Bolivia today.

Then the main ancestral tribe continued the migration north to Colombia where the Lokono-Arawak split off from the main body of our ancestral tribe and migrated thence East into Venezuela...the Taino-Arawak split off from the Lokono and migrated north into Margarita and the ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire & Curacao...thence to the Greater Antilles)... the Lokono-Arawak then continued to migrate East to Trinidad & the Guianas - thence north up the Lesser Antilles from Trinidad eventually reaching the Bahamas - where Columbus nearly spelled their name correctly when he said they call themselves 'Lucayo'...but he recorded Lokono nouns for the cultural items they possessed like Hamaka and Kanoa and the places they inhabited.....'Bahaya' (corrupted to 'Bahama') means 'dangerous place' in Lokono, Semi (corrupted to 'Zemi') means a holy object, Nana means pineapple (Columbus wrote it as 'Anana' say 'Ah nana' in Lokono is literally saying 'A Pineapple' - if I am giving you just one...which common sense would tell you - would be the way a native giving a European a tropical fruit the European never saw before - but asked what it was - would do...the native would give the European ONE of the fruit and tell him what it was whilst doing so) would not know any of this if you do not know the Lokono-Arawak language - no matter how many University degrees you have. I can even show you the ORIGINAL small wild and not so sweet Pineapple plant in Amazonia that the Lokono cultivated to get the sweet domesticated varieties you know today....we still have it growing in our lands in Guyana (for example), but you cannot find the original wild pineapple anywhere in the Caribbean...proving it was domesticated PRIOR to being grown in the islands....and the evidence shows it was domesticated by the Lokono....just as we know the Corn was domesticated by the Meso-American tribes because they still have the original wild variety of corn also.

* The main body continued to reside in Colombia until the Embera (& Wounan who split off from the Embera around 1000 AD) migrated into Central America in the late 1700s AD

Yet the Lokono are rare among other 'Amazonian tribes' in having hereditary rulership (only the 'Arawakan' tribes do this generally speaking...and I say it is because our ancestral tribal origins are from Tiwanaku which was ruled by Hereditary leaders for centuries...and certain social characteristics of sedentary agrarian urban life (as if they once lived in cities) - unlike most Amazonian tribes. A few miles down a mountain is all that separates my observations and that of dominant Anthropology.

At Tiwanaku headbinding was done....Columbus said he saw Lokono - but he wrote the name 'Lucayo' and Taino (and Taino are linguistically proven to be a daughter tribe of Lokono) - doing head-binding, many 'Lukayo' and 'Taino' words are actually Lokono words meaning the exact same thing - with just obvious Spanish influenced mistranscribed spellings (but still closely sounding).

Furthermore, I visit the Embera Tribe (whose ancestral historical name for themselves is a Lokono-Arawak word) often and I noted that they have identical puberty rituals as the Lokono and have many identical words for the same things - even the same number of consonants in their alphabet as the Lokono do - 21, now Anthropologists (without a drop of Amerindian DNA in them) will tell you confidently that the origins or ethnic relationships of the Embera to others are unknown....but from living among them and sharing our cultural practices I have come to a more informed ethnically qualified conclusion - that the Embera (like the Taino who split-off from the Lokono after the Lokono split-off from the main body of the ancestral tribe) split off from the main ancestral tribal rootstock at the period of our migration up from Amazonian Bolivia - around the time we had reached Amazonian Colombia.

Prior to the Embera split I believe the Terena of Bolivia split off from the main ancestral tribal root stock even before the Embera (as did the Guarani), and I will be going to Brazil to spend time with the Terena and to Paraguay to spend time with the Guarani - to gather evidence of this also.

Common sense should tell you that the best person to identify who is related to them culturally - would be someone who is ACTUALLY a practicing member of the culture! Let me show you how even the word 'Caribbean' is actually of Lokono not Kalinago origin (because the Kalinagos NEVER called themselves 'Caribs' in the first place)...but if I want to say 'Islands' in Lokono - I would say KAI-REE-BAY....note the early Spanish maps say 'Mar del Caribe' - which is merely 'Sea of the Islands' in English...still 'sure' that the name 'Caribbean' (which is really the English version of the Spanish word 'Caribe' - which Spanish speakers pronounce KA-REE-BAY and Lokono-Arawaks pronounce KAI-REE-BAY) is because of the Kalinagos whom the Spaniards called 'Caribales'..why not 'Mar de los Caribales' or 'Mar del Caribales' instead then? But alas, I am no University-trained non-Indigenous person (just a humble Lokono person myself and descendant of a few hundred years of Hereditary Chiefs who has fluent speakers in my family), so my points are not noted by the non-indigenous 'intellectuals' who obviously tell themselves that they know ALL the facts.

Current THEORIES will tell you that Tiwanaku was only abandoned less than 1,000 years ago...My theory is that it was indeed LAST abandoned 1,000 years ago...but those last inhabitants did NOT build it...these academics are NOT taking the FACT that Tiwanaku was a port on lake Titicaca 10,000 years ago, and since then the lake has receded GREATLY - to the point where it is SO far away from the ancient city of Tiwanaku today it looks as though it had nothing to do with any lake port activity....yet archaeologists have found evidence to prove that Tiwanaku WAS, in fact, a thriving lake port with boat docks, etc.

Only one researcher has factored in climate FACTS to realize the true age of construction of Tiwanaku is 10 times older than non-indigenous academics are telling us....because technically no one can accurately date stone, this is why the Sphinx in Egypt may also be 10,000 years old as well.
