Doug, the word Chan-Chan, actually Shan-Shan, because the conquering Spaniards could not pronounce "Sh," is of North Indian and Western Chinese derivation. It means "District." It is used in the same way from Southern Arizona all the way to South America. For instance, the O'odhams of Arizona also use "Chan" when referring to "District." the fact that Shan-Shan is doubled means that it had satellite ports under its jurisdiction in my opinion. The South Americans say that eventually, several smaller Phoenician port cities will be found along the coast. Gene
