NEW - MORE EVIDENCE TO A LOKONO & TAINO TRIBAL ORIGIN IN THE ANDES EMERGES
This is exciting to me, because it is a well known FACT that the Taino language and Lokono language are related, and years ago (after visiting the Bolivian Andes and learning that many words and place names were similar (in some cases IDENTICAL) to Lokono words for the same things...I developed a theory (based also on the fact that Lokono origins are put in geographical proximity to where Bolivia and Amazonia meet - and both Lokono and Taino had hereditary rulers - unlike most of the other Amazonian tribes - but just like the Andean cultures that gave rise to various civilizations there) - that the Lokono (and Taino by extension as a 'daughter-tongue & people') had origins in ancient Andean civilizations...now this stool DNA proof of that Andean connection in origin for the 'Huecoids' does indeed exist....but who were the 'Huecoid's' and 'Saladoids' tribally? We know they were both Amerindian ethnically, but what did they call themselves? And perhaps, the people who left the Andes and migrated up the western basin of Amazonia - with one branch heading into the islands and the other into the Guianas...just maybe they were SISTER tribes that subsequently evolved culturally into 'Taino' and 'Lokono' (with BOTH retaining the ancient Andean Hereditary ruler system)? That is my new revised theory based on latest discoveries and evidence.
