In some studies that I have done recently, I found out that Hyksos meant "Leaders of Foreign Lands" in Egyptian, and they were probably from Asia, or possibly Indo-European...

The horse and chariot were more than likely brought to Egypt by the Hurrian speaking tribes which probably went on to form the Mittanian Superpower, allegedly ruled by an Indo-Aryan warrior caste who held a lot of power in the Fertile Crescent to the north of Egypt, along the Euphrates and Tigris.
