I clipped the above Sanskrit word for fighter, warrior, and hero from the Sanskrit Lexicon so that readers will not have to do it themselves. This word first emigrated to India from the Turkish nations (Kurus) of Altai and Tannu (also known as Tuva (Tubal), Tewa, and Tiwa. I find it quite interesting that in our American southwest there are a group of Keresans, Tanoans, Tewas, Tiwas, and possibly even a Tuba.
My friend Gary David, who is also an expert on the Hopi, author of the book The Orion Zone, and a frequent poster on GH, wrote me an opinion of his about these matters. He also corrected my understanding of the Hopi work Moki: I discussed this earlier in this string.
"Moki, or Moqui, is a denigrating term that the Spanish used to describe the Hopi. It comes from moquillo, which means "runny nose." A Hopi woman college teacher told me that the Spanish used the term because the Hopi always had runny noses, or were sick.
Indeed there are the groups you describe in New Mexico. For instance, the Tiwa live at Taos Pueblo. The Tewa and Keresan live at other Rio Grande pueblos (I would have to check to see which is which) and Keres also live at Laguna Pueblo farther west. The Hopi have Hano village on First Mesa, which is essentially a group that migrated from the Rio Grande. They still speak Tewa rather than Hopi.
And what about Tuba City? How did that town get its name. That's near our mutual friend Ros George's village of Moencopi. Or Munqapi, as he spells it."
I am now going to trace the world’s first word for “Jew” from the Turkish Altai down to India, then across the ocean to Mexico and Northward to our state of Utah. The Chude (CHOOdeh) or Tzood (Zudis) were a ferocious warrior class in the Altai. Later, they migrated to India where they were called Judh or Judhi. After that, these warriors became the warrior caste of the Aztecs or Nahuatl-speaking people: Yaotl. Later, the legends of the Yaquis tell of legions of valiant warriors who marched northward from central Mexico. They were called Yoris or Yuris. The pronunciation of this word sounds like Jodys or Judys. Even today, the Yaquis call “gringos” Jodys or Judys. Finally, we go into the Southwestern United States. The legends of the Hopis speak of some warriors who accompanied them. Today, we call them the Ute (Yute) Indians. Utah (Yutah) is named after them.
Even the Hohokams can trace their descendancy back to Ham, son of Noah. I have the India-Indian story about this if anyone wants me to post it.
By the way, these Chudes, the precursors of the Jews, still live in Central Asia. But now they are the Estonians and Finns. You can read about them on the Internet.
We must all concentrate our attention on the Turks, especially those of Altai and Tannu as the fathers of the world. We will never solve the mysteries of the ancient world until we do this. They were the first ones to have unwalled villages.
