Part 1: Egyptian roots of the geographical names of ancient locations in the Western Hemisphere?


The following are plausible explanations and theories, leading us closer to the historical truths we all seek.  I suspect 1000 authors or more have found these connections before me, in the last 500 years.


First Lookup

On Yahoo or Google, please lookup the following:

      Maatiu +Heteptiu   
"Those who speak the truth", and "those who praise Ra"

"Maatiu Heteptiu" is the plausible Egyptian version of Machu Picchu found today in Peru, and defined by Wallis Budge in the book "Egyptian Heaven and Hell".   In fact, Wallis Budge may have defined Machu Picchu before the location was unearthed in 1911 or so.


Second Lookup

     Anpao +Lakota

This is the Lakota-Sioux version of the Egyptian Anpu, Anubis, Jackal-headed-dog-star, the Venus dawn star, "La-Kota" and "Da-Kota"...."Kota"-dog star.       

Note:  Lakota, Dakota, "Kota" similar names: Coyote-Navajo, Khuti-Egyptian, Khai Yu-Japanese, and transposed Huacan-Aztec, Yukon-Inuit, and Hurricane-English.


Third Lookup

ancient Mesopotamian city... 
"Holy Temple of Shapir" (sun God?)

compare with...

Lakes Michigan and Superior

     Michoacan + Chapultepec   
Valley of Mexico

also compare with the Judaic
meaning "holy temple",

and the Islamic
also meaning "church" or "temple".


Fourth Lookup

   "Ka Ka" +Osiris      or  "Ka Her Ka"
Lakes of Osiris, Holy Lake of Osiris

     Titicaca       Peru                          Tee chee kah kah    Holy Lake of Osiris, "Ka Ka"
     Texcaca      Valley of Mexico       Teh chay kah kah    or Tay kah kah
     Chicago       USA                         Shee kah go

The names of States and Indian tribes in the United States:

 NOTE: The page references come from the two-volume set:
An Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary,
by E. A. Wallis Budge, 1920, republished 1978.


a group of four gods with hidden arms"  (pg. 189)

Author's theory:  I think the Utah area was so-named for the magnificent, featureless sandstone pillars found in the broad canyons of today's Southern Utah.   At one time, water may have surrounded these pillars.

The Yew tree, the Yidd tree. 
Yahoo-lookup: many ancient explanations

Mesu Ra 
"Royal son" or "Son of the Sun God"   (possibly Moses-Sun?)

Allah embah   or  Allah m'bah
"in the presence of Allah"   pg 264

Eleans (Greek), or Elion, Elyion,
or Elon (Phoenician/Babylonian), or Elohim (Judaic)
"the great spirit" God found in many ancient cultures...
Note: the Chinese culture names "El Leon" as "the moon".

"Beginning land", or "Garden land"  Kah-yeh-na-ta     pg 558       

similar:  Conantequot
"Holy place of Canaan", I believe.        

Also note:  Canada I believe is an offshoot of the Egyptian name Khent, Kah-yeh-na-ta, from the Iroquois tribal confederation name, Canadaigwa, Kah-yeh-nah-da-ee-gah-wah, "first descendants of Canaan", the garden land, the "land of milk and honey".  

The "daigwa" suffix to the name is, I believe, the "dowager", the dowery, the matriarchal first descendants.   It was a matriarchal society at that time, I believe. 

A similar name is Onon da ee gah wah, Onondaiga, Onondega, "First dowagers", first martriarchal descendants.


Isis Cippi
"Shrine (cippi) of Isis", (or shrine of Mesu-Moses)

"the Seven Divine Masters of Wisdom"   pg 896        

"a goddess"     pg 911 

"the god Thoth"    God of knowledge, magic   pg 911

"limit of the earth", "limitless eternity"   pg 908

"storm, wind, hurricane"  pg 902

"a group of Gods in the Tuat", the underworld    pg 900

knowledge, wisdom, speech of wisdom"

Ta aakhu
land of the spirits   pg 815

Author's theory:  The names "Tchaus", Tay-kas, or Tay zhas, or Tay quot, occurs many times in the Western Hemisphere Indian tribes.   Examples... Conantequot-Holy place of Canaan, Texcaca-Holy Lake or place of Osiris.   From this ancient naming convention, I believe both "Zeus" and possibly "Jesus" derived, though I have no proof.  

stream or watercourse   pg 145

also could be short form of  Ua-uben-em-Aah  a title of Osiris   pg 154
or... Uauaiu   "a tribe or people"   pg 146

Jah, the Great    pg 143

     Menhesau (ta)
"a group of Gods who ruled over the south"   pg 303    
alternate possibility....
"Men", "Mena" or "Menes", (pg 917)
first Egyptian King of the First Dynasty, 
composed with "sa ta" (pg 586)...
Mene sa ta
"giving praise to Menes"

Note:  among the many meanings of "Ta" in Egyptian prefix and suffix usage is the common meaning... "land, earth, place, etc."  pages 815-817   Menhesau (ta)   Land where a group of gods ruled over the south"   Minnesota...

Min aa-t-en

I have composed this plausible definition from the name of the Egyptian God of fertility, Min, and the "aa-ten" prefix which means variously as "island, land, canal, domain, district, region, etc."   The "A-ah-ten of Min", is the Island of the fertility God, Min, due to its shape as a hanging phallic, is almost identical in naming convention with Isle of Man, near Ireland, also shaped like a phallic symbol.   There are also alternate possibilities, one of which is "Manu", "Country in the West".

Compare "Min a-a-ten" with the Egyptian names"

a mythological town  pg 16

the 13th Aat of Sekhet-aaru  pg 16

a district of fire in the Tuat  pg 16

     Aa-t ent Up-uatu  
part of the magical boat pg 17

Author's note: They say that the Bible was written in coded messages.  I believe there is a remote chance that the expression "Manna from Heaven" spoken by Moses, may have been a codified direction indicator.   Manna, meaning "bread", and Manu meaning "country in the West", offers an intriguing possibility that Moses was directing his people to "sail west, into the other world/heaven" if they wanted to survive to get to the "promised land", the garden land, Khent, "Kah-yeh-n-ta", Canaan  - plausibly evidenced by the names... Canada, Connecticut, Canadaiga and Manhatten.


Tanus sa
"protectors of "Tanus", Memphis in Egypt    pg 586

"guardians, shepherds"     pg 586

Mastiu (sets)
"the gods of the Thigh", Great Bear,    pg 275

Author's note:  I believe this name means... "Bear country tribe" related to the constellation "Ursa Major"

        Egyptian goose god pg 768

vassals of Osiris", followers of Osiris?      pg 50


Iraq, Iroquois, Uruguay?

a name of Amen, the Sun God    pg 143

"he who is great in words of power, or enchantments"   pg 171

a name of Set of 173

How are these ancient Western Hemisphere names plausibly explained by Egyptian definitions? 

I have no proof, only circumstantial plausible evidence that these Egyptian names are names used by the Indian tribes in their original Egyptian/Babylonian context.

The ancient tribes of the Western and Eastern hemispheres appear to be identical in theology, music, fashions, pottery, language, burial techniques, naming conventions, and in some rare instances, alphabets and clay tablets!   

Complicating the translations from Egyptian hieroglyphics to English phonetic pronunciations, is the fact that vowels did not exist in the Egyptian language in hieroglyphic form.  As I understand it, vowels were considered sacred by the Egyptians, and not to be written down.  The Greeks in 750 BC "invented" the written form of vowels.

We are left with Egyptian to English translations, without vowels.  Therefore, the letters/word KMT is pronounced Kimet, etc.    Khent becomes Kah-yeh-nah-ta, Canada.

If you can understand the plausibility of what I have just explained, then I will be presenting to World-Mysteries website the Atlantean landmarks of the Valley of Mexico, Egyptian images of Tehotu, on the temple ot Teotuhuacan in Mexico, the Temple of Solomon (Acolman) in Aztec Mexico, and other remarkable "rediscoveries" that are found in piecemeal form in every library of the United States!

1000 or 10,000 wonderful authors have come before me.   I do not intend to write a book, because I believe the most wonderful authors have already written these books over the past 500 years..   I can only offer research theories that explain how the ancients traveled the world 5000 years ago, such as the statue of Atlas being a secret map of the Western Hemisphere, the Atlas "head" being Yucatan, right arm of Cuba/Florida, left arm of Baja.

Atlantean clue:  Zhosheem, not "ocean"

Another clue is the dichotomy of Atlantis being "an island in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by a ring of mountains."   I say this entry should have read, in the English language, "an island in the middle of the Zhosheem, surrounded by a ring of mountains", Zhosheem being the "Xochimilco" lake that is 200 square miles or so, connected by a narrow strait to the Lake of Texcaca, which was 600 square miles or so in ancient times.

Would you like to know more?   The answers have already been written.
