RamaRama Tribes of Old Brazil (#PindoRama) and Sindhu vs Brazilian Script
At the time when Europeans first landed on the soil of Brazil, a total of 2,000 indigenous nations, divided into several thousands of tribes existed in Brazil. Curt Nimuendajú gives a list of 1,400 nations in his monumental work Mapa etno-histórico do Brasil e regiões adjacentes, but he ignored many smaller (extinct) tribes in Eastern Brazil. Currently only approx 790 tribes are alive, with no survivors being reported for the remaining tribes. However this doesn’t mean all their bloodlines are extinct only their cultures.
The natives called Brazil as #PindoRama. Even the archaeology and ancient reliefs indicate that Sri Vishnu, Ramayana, Sri Rama, Hanuman, Goddess Sita, Kurma Avatar (Turtle) etc. were not unknown in Brazil, Honduras, Peru, Bolivia, Guatemala and Mexico. An ancient sculpture of the ‘Vanara Monkey God’ of Copan, Honduras is linked to the Vedic Hanuman or Vanara tribes. Kaipo Tribes is also linked to the same. William Jones (1744 – 1794) stated in his papers published by the the Asiatic Society that the Incan festival ‘Rama-Sitva’ celebrated on the Winter Solstice Day gets its name from the Hindu God King, Sri Rama and his wife, Goddess Sita. The Winter Solstice Day is celebrated in June in Peru. (Peru lies in the southern Hemisphere and the winter solstice day falls in June).
The ancient name of Brazil which is PindoRama is also linked to RamaRama tribes. The RamaRama were a Tupi speaking group of considerable size living in the Brazilian Amazonian area in a place called Rondonia. One can also find a place named Pindarama in district #Banswara, Rajasthan.
✳In his book “Mysteries of Ancient South America” on page 63 Mr. Harold T. Wilkins writes ”The Sinhalese priests and Orientalists at Oxford spoke of “Secret Ashoka cypher”; but this chapter tries to prove that those strange writings – syllabary rather than hieroglyphs, and assuredly not Ameri-Indian pictographs – are something far remarkable than hieratic cipher scripts – if it be that of an esoteric, Hindu Cult.”
✳Mr. Harold on Chapter V page 118 writes about finding of hieroglyphs by a young gunner lieutenant, P.H. Fawcett in the jungle of Ceylon. The hieroglyphs stone was covered in creeper of unknown date written on a great slab of rock. Mr. Harold says “I have myself found some queer links between these strange letters of old brazil and characters found in Tibet and Vedic Hindostan.
⏩Amazon was itself known as the ‘Maranon’ in ancient times. Many of the tributaries of the Amazon also bear Sanskrit names. The Jara and the Javary seem to be related to the Sanskrit ‘jhara’ (झर) meaning ‘water-body’ or ‘water-fall, also ‘Jhari’ is ‘river’; these words also appear in the names of major rivers around the world such as the Jordon and the Niger’ etc. Then there are the ‘Paru’, ‘Para’ and ‘Purus’ rivers. ‘Paru’ is ‘sun’ or ‘heaven’, ‘Para’ (पर) is ‘greatest’ or as a direction it means ‘across’, and ‘Purus’ is the equivalent of ‘in front’ or ‘ahead’.
In 1932, Wilhelm de Hevesy was the first academic to suggest a link between Rongorongo and the Indus script of the Indus Valley Civilization in India, claiming that as many as forty Rongorongo symbols had a correlating symbol in the Indus valley script from India. The Inga Stone Inscription of Brazil is similar to the RongoRongo- the ancient script of Easter Island (Pascoa) which is similar to Indus valley Script.

Lots of efforts were made by foreigner who invaded Americas to destroy the ancient records including tribes. The subsequent disappearance of the old wooden tablets from RongoRongo was also done and is probably due to their sacred character as the natives hid them from the European immigrants, presumably because the missionaries considered the ceremonial documents as idolatrous objects. The natives repeatedly asserted that the missionaries had prohibited them from reading the tablets, and even had induced them to burn these objects as devil’s work. The Swede De Greno, who arrived about 1870 at Easter island, said the following:“…soon after the Catholic Mission was established on the Island, the missionaries persuaded many of the people to consume by fire all the blocks (tablets) in their possession, telling them that they were but heathen records and that the possession of them would have a tendency to attach them to their heathenism and prevent their thorough conversion to the new religion and the consequent saving of their souls..”.
Similar Thing happened with Mayan tabs…Bishop De Landa destroyed many book which ended the mayan civilization in mystery to establish a new world order & religion. In Mayan history as well, the Maya were a relatively advanced civilization. By 100 BC they had a system of writing, and for the next 1400 years they recorded their history as well as astronomical observations and calendar calculations. Then the Spanish showed up. For three months in 1562, Spanish friars tried to Christianize the Maya through torture. In order that no one could ever return to the old ways, they also burned all samples of Mayan writing they could find. Said Bishop De Landa, “We found a large number of books in these [Mayan] characters and, as they contained nothing in which were not to be seen as superstition and lies of the devil, we burned them all, which they regretted to an amazing degree, and which caused them much affliction.” Today only three of these works remain.
Lots of effort in required by Indian researchers to connect the rich ancient history and linkages of Brazilian, Incas and Sindhu civilization considering the same scripts found in these places.
