    There are evidences which show that Indians were also in South and Central Americas in ancient times. Here is one video where a German-born devotee of Sri Prabhupada who was sent to South America and he found that a language spoken in Peru, Equador, Columbia, etc has about a thousand words with Sanskrit roots. And, the people believe in Reincarnation, Atman (Soul), Male/Female God/Goddess (as in Shiva-Shakti), etc., all Hindu concepts.

    Unfortunately, the precise video can only be found by backing up (on left triangle) a couple of times. It seem several are strung together.

      Professor Ivan Van Sertima of Kitty was a Guyanese and world genius. There is much we still don’t know about man’s history on the planet and about his presence in the Americas. We are only now beginning to uncover the lies and the denials told by a Eurocentric press and its educational institutions.

      There’s absolutely no doubt that Africans visited and left there footprints in the Americas thousands of years ago. But one sick person, as expected, has to turn the subject about India.

      Dr Sertima was a true Guyanese hero. Yes, Dave Martins, we have to build a hall of heroes to honour our great sons and daughters.

    While Dr Van Sertima has made a good case, we can’t ignore evidences that other people/civilizations had also reached the Americas in ancient times. Thor Hyderdahl has shown by his own Kon Tiki 5,000 miles 1947 voyage to Polynesia from Eastern Island on a hand built raft, that the Polynesians likely did same. He also did another expedition from West Africa to Barbados (thus supporting Dr. Van Sertima’s thesis), The Vikings also reached Canada. Then there is a recent documentary (by Dr. David Suzuki) arguing that Europeans likely landed at Chesapeake Bay, USA.

    To not crowd the field, I chose to talk only about Indian people reaching South America, even though I have other materials which argue that Indians were also in the other Americas. These will be disclosed in a book for next year. Nevertheless I will disclose (prematurely) a salient fact just about South America, using Sanskrit naming to support what the ISKON Swami in the video claims about the most popular native QUECHUA language.

    About Argentina.
    From Wikipedia we get: The Italians naming “Argentina” implies Terra Argentina “land of silver” or Costa Argentina “coast of silver”… Argentina was first associated with the silver mountains legend, widespread among the first European explorers of the La Plata Basin.

    In the Indian Mahabharata epic, one of the most prominent characters is the Pandava prince, Arjuna, He is also prominently featured in the Hindu scriptural text, the Bhagavad Gita (which forms part of the Mahabharata). It is to him, ahead of the great (world) war, Lord Krishna delivers the prescriptions on the nature of duty and action in order to achieve the hereafter. Two meanings of the Sanskrit name. Arjuna, are: “made of silver” and “white colour”. So, it should be evident where Latin and the Italians got the meaning of Argentina – from the name Arjuna.
    So, like the thousand words in the Quechua language, Argentina is derived from Sanskrit.
