maps east of the lands of Labrador the reading "Land of the Red
Jews" appears. This expression deserves to be analyzed. Cananeo
means red skin man, reason why Greeks baptized them Phoenix (red), that
is where the name Phoenicians derives from and the Egyptians called
them The Red. None of these terms were used to denominate Moses' town
that Canaan conquered, we can deduce then that the Red Jewish term is
surely very antique, that shows that the cartela of the maps refers
to those "Red Men. Cananeos, Phoenix (Phoenicians)".
In the times of conquering for Englishmen and French, these lands were
known as Lands of Abraham. Suggestively it's in the East of the North
American Territory where for the first time they called the natives
"Red Skins" being then extensive to the Far West, because
they also were.
..... These lands are represented in other
precolumbus maps as El Edrisi 1154, Al Wardi 1349, Martellus 1489 or
M. Behaim 1492 denominated as "Judei Clausi". Lands they felt
belonging to the extreme north region, to the east of Siberia, but that
in fact as it is demonstrated in the old cartography, they are parts
of America fused with Asia.
..... Several theories exist on the origin
of the mysterious word "Yankee" with which the North Americans
are denominated and although the Southern don't like it, at the moment
it's used in the entire world to denominate them all.
..... According to the British Encyclopedia,
this word is of unknown origin and gives us several meanings and in
one it says that possibly is a drift from the Dutch Janke that is diminutive
In another explanation it says that it was used in the independence
war in 1775 by the British soldiers as a pejorative term applied to
..... It is believed that others say that
a native tribe of Massachussets, called Yankos or Yanque, were defeated
by others from New England taking these their names that means invincible.
We can say that these explanations maraud the truth but they don't explain
neither they clarify anything.
Some say that possibly Yanke drift from Jacob (Yacob)?
..... Others affirm that its origin should
be looked for in Russia, and that it would be of Tartar origin.
..... I believe to be under conditions to
say that this word "Yankee" derives of the word "Yanke"
that is of Cananeo or Tartar origin, and that it's a natives' denomination
of the northeast of USA, the Red Jews of Abraham's Lands. That is the
reason why the Englishmen used it as a pejorative term not to denominate
the natives but the Europeans or descendents which were considered rebellious
and traitors of the English Crown. In a few words, to reject them, they
called them Indians, using their name as an insult.
..... In the secession war the troops or
common soldiers were formed partly in North as in South by natives assimilated
by the conquest or allied tribes to different decrees. This is the reason
why when the southern troops saw and recognized the natives of the north
in their blue uniforms and knowing who they were, said " here comes
the Yanques, or Yankees" calling this way all the troops of the
Union, because of their blue uniforms, and then when these won the war
it was applied to the whole Union.
Although the term Yanke has become well-known in North America it's
not exclusive of that region, it also exists in South America, in the
Patagonia like an indigenous denomination. As the case of the Yanke-truz
tribe or Yanke-lemus cacique or Yanke-nao Hill, etc.
..... Another term that is believed of mysterious
origin is "Che" that is also a patrimony of North American
natives although it is well-known through the South American native.
The Argentineans are called "Che" as the Americans are called
..... As much in the north as in the south
the Che is part of the name of many aboriginal tribes: in the north
or Apache, Cherokees, Comanches, Creeckche, Cheyenes, etc., and in the
south Mapuches, Teuelche, Rinculche, Chuelche etc.
..... The term "Che" means town,
nation, people, and it's of a Tartar-Mongolian origin and we find it
in well-known names as Chechenia or Chernobil etc., also the term Chaman
that we can find in all America is of the same origin.
..... Actually there are names that are
of Cananeo-Jewish origin as the case of Yankelevich that means the invincible
children or people of Levi and I don't believe that in this case, Yanke
is applied as diminutive, since it's interpreted that it's not Yankele
- vich but Yanke-levi-ch.
..... The legends of the Navajos native
community of the central part of North America not only demonstrate
their knowledge of the Pacific Ocean but rather they narrate the migration
that their people carried out towards the east from their natural land
in the west crossing the North Pacific. In this old map we can appreciate
the origin and meaning of the name Navajos, the legend that "Nabathea
in Hebrew Nabajoth" prays what is translated as "Nabatea
that is Navajo in Hebrew". When words are transmitted orally from
a Idiom, Language or Dialect to another, and they aren't translated
they usually suffer phonetic deformations, result of different pronunciation
English anonymous map of the patriarch's land
still remains among the Navajos, and among the inhabitants of the Himalaya
region, especially the Tibetan, and also in the south of India, a common
ritual habit, spilling color powders carefully to form drawings (Mandalas)
that are destroyed after being finished or erased with their hands so
that the energy of these representations is absorbed again by the earth.
or Navajos Aborigines (left) and Lamas priests (right) carrying
out Mandalas with color powder
find that some North American aborigine tribes practiced the same funeral
ritual that the Mitraismo Asian Magicians did, leaving the cadavers
outdoors on high platforms, called since then "Torres de silencio."
..... The belief of many of North American
aboriginal towns in Great Spirit, is the same one of the Magicians in
Mainyú (Spenta Mainyú creative and beneficent spirit,
Angra Mainyú bad spirit). The Mainyun Great Spirit of the Cheyenes
is a form of corruption of Mainyú of the Zoroastrismo, character
that is identified as one of the Magicians of Persia. Also we can say
that the Creative Spirit, Manitou of the Algonquinas tribes is also
another corrupted way of Mainyú of the Zoroastrismo.
