This history of the Chinese Battle of Zhuolu is signifigant to Israelite history because provides information concerning the migration of Israelite descendants into Southen China/Southeast Asia. Chiyou, the ancestor of the Miao-Hmong peoples of southern China, was a formidable opposition in the Battle of Zhuolu and he is worshipped as a god of war.
“The Battle of Zhuolu (traditional Chinese: 涿鹿之戰) was the second battle in the history of China as recorded in the Records of the Grand Historian, fought between the Yellow Emperor (Huang Di) and Chiyou. The battle was fought in Zhuolu, near the present-day border of Hebei and Liaoning. The victory for the Yellow Emperor here is often credited as history, although almost everything from that time period is considered legendary.“ – Wikipedia, Battle of Zhuolu
The Yellow Emperor (Huang Di) and the Red Emperor (Yandi/Shennong) were forced to join forces in order to deal with Chiyou.
The coalition between the Red and Yellow Emperors and their subsequent conquest of the fertile yellow river central plains resulted in the creation of the Huaxia people. The Red and Yellow Emperors are still honored by the colors of the Chinese national flag of the Huaxia people of northern China.
Red for the Flame Emperor and Yellow for the Yellow Emperor
“In the pre-Qin era, present-day Luoyang and its nearby areas were considered the “Center of the World”, as the political seat of the Xia Dynasty was located around Songshan and the Yi-Luo river basin.” – Wikipedia, Central Plain (China)
The fertility of the central plains allowed the huge population of the Huaxia to be sustained but it must be remembered that the Huaxia was a nation comprised of two separate nations, one belonging to Yandi and the other belonging to Huang Di.
“Geographically speaking, the central plain is the heart of china, similar to the Ganges plain in India, and is the traditional power seat of china. The Xia, Shang, and Zhou dynasty was established in and around these areas so for them, a unified china consists of these areas under control. They are also known as the nine provinces.” – Pakistan Defense
It must also be stated again, that without the amalgamation of these formerly two separate groups, the Battle of Zhuolu would probably not have been won by the Huaxia. So, what made Chiyou and his people such formidable warriors? Fire!
Chiyou’s relationship with fire is the key to solving the mystery behind his association with war. It should first be noted that Chiyou is a descendent of Shennong. Shennong, the founder of Chinese traditional herbal medicine, has been idenitified as Yandi. Yandi was known as the Red Emperor or Flame Emperor because of his relationship with fire.
“Yan literally means “flame”, and K. C. Wu speculates that this appellation may be connected with the fire used to clear the fields in slash and burn agriculture. In any case, it appears that agricultural innovations by Shennong and his descendants contributed to some sort of social success that lead them to style themselves as di (Chinese: 帝; literally: “emperors”), rather than hou (Chinese: 侯; literally: “lord”), as in the case of lesser leaders… The Zuo Zhuan states that in 525 BC, the descendants of Yan were recognized as long having been masters of fire and having used fire in their names.” – Wikipedia, Yan Emperor
Chiyou, as a descendant of the Flame Emperor was also a master of fire, as were his people. However, Yandi is known as the first emperor China and the mastery of fire was developed long before China. Both Shennong and the mastery of fire can trace their origins to Phoenicia/Israel/Syria by way of Africa. We will focus on Africa for now. Chinese and African foreign relations are very ancient and much trade and travel has occurred between them both.
Transoceanic trade between East Africa and China predates the voyages of Zheng He and was dominated by the people whom Zheng He’s surame is derived from—the Zanji.
The Zanji are an east African Bantu people. We have already identified the Bantu as the ancient Israelites (CLICK HERE). Identifying the Bantu as the Israelites allows us to see the correlation between east African Bantu bull worship, which originated in ancient Egypt. This bull veneration was diffused throughout the African continent during the Bantu Expansion by Bantu African Israelites who had allow built a golden calf after their Exodus from Egypt. Many of the Israelites could not depart from the sinful culture and religion they learned in Egypt and for this reason, were not allowed to enter into the Promised Land. However, they entered into many other lands. We see the bull worship of Egypt reflected by many different Bantu tribes in Africa.
“So I turned and came down from the mount, and the mount burned with fire: and the two tables of the covenant were in my two hands. And I looked, and, behold, ye had sinned against the Lord your God, and had made you a molten calf: ye had turned aside quickly out of the way which the Lord had commanded you.” – Deuteronomy 9:15-16
“They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.” – Exodus 32:8
And we see that same Egypto-Phoenician bull worship of the Bantu Africans reflected in the various depictions, his descendent Chiyou and Chiyou’s descendants the Miao-Hmong peoples of southern China (the biblical land of Sinim H5515).
“And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.” – Acts 7:41
“Putting aside the horns, which have at the same time assumed the aspect of a fork, we cannot but be struck by the resemblance of this symbol to those of the Phœnician Caducei, where the Disk seems to be supported by a conical stem.” – The Origins of the Caduceus, The Migration of Symbols, by Goblet d’Alviella, PG 232
“They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off. Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast thee off; mine anger is kindled against them: how long will it be ere they attain to innocency? For from Israel was it also: the workman made it; therefore it is not God: but the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces.” – Hosea 8:4-6
These bulls horns worn upon the heads of the Miao-Hmong peoples, who are descended from Shennong, the Flame Emperor, through his descendant Chiyou and the slash-and-burn agricultural technique used in China are very strong evidences supporting the fact of the ancient origins of China in Africa.
Along with the Slash-and Burn technique, the terraced rice field agricultural technique was introduced to Asia from Bantu Israelite Africans.
The terracing effect is based upon the same techniques that the pyramids/step pyramids were constructed with. The Israelites introduced this agricultural skill based on the skills they used to build Egypt and its treasure cities (CLICK HERE) This techniques allows for the energy descending from heaven (the rain) to be equally distributed upon the area of earth that has been terraced/stepped. This can also be compared to the construction of Borobudur Temple in Indonesia. Read more about the dissipation of energy but clicking THE TEMPLE’S ANTENNA.
Moreover, the Chinese, seeking to prove, through DNA analysis, an independent origin for the Chinese people, actually found evidence to the contrary and actually validated the African Bantu/Israelite origins of the Chinese people.
With this being established, it will be easier to understand the association between Chiyou, fire and warfare. Again, we find that ancient trans-oceanic trade between China and Africa was common. The east coasts of Africa, the land of the Zanji Bantu Israelites, was the location of many coastal trade towns. The coastal trade was supplied by the resource rich interior of Africa and transported across various land trade routes. One of the most important route from the east coast to the interior was the Luba and Lunda trade network which moved from the east coast of Africa (Tanzania area) to the west coast of Angola through the Congo region.
“The Mbudye tradition states that all of the rulers of the Luba Empire traced their ancestry to Kalala Ilunga, a mystical hunter credited with toppling the cruel ruler known as Nkongolo. This figure is also credited with the introduction of advanced iron forging techniques to the Luba peoples. Luba traders linked the Zaire forest to the north with the mineral-rich region in the center of modern Zambia known as the Copperbelt. The trade routes passing through Luba territory were also connected with wider networks extending to both the Atlantic and Indian Ocean coasts… The ruling class held a virtual monopoly on trade items such as salt, copper, and iron ore. This allowed them to continue their dominance in much of Central Africa.” – Wikipedia, Kingdom of Luba
This particular trade network was known for it’s copper and iron ore, which the Chinese eagerly traded for to mint coinage for their economy and build agricultural tools weapons.
“The 600 year old coin that proves China was trading with East Africa BEFORE Europeans arrived. [The] copper coin, which has a square hole in the center so it could be worn on a belt Was issued by Emperor Yongle of China who reigned from 1403-1425 during the Ming Dynasty” – Daily Mail
The agricultural tools and weapons were needed to feed and defend the vast populations of China, which was the main causal factor behind the Zhuolu War. The growing populations and demand for food and land between competing tribes is a situation very reminiscent of the circumstances behind the Bantu Expansion.
The Bantu Expansion was the process of the migration and conquest of sub-Saharan Africa by the Bantu peoples. Their knowledge of animal husbandry and agriculture, acquired by the Israelite Bantu’s while in Egypt, allowed for the nomadic tribes to settle and move from subsistence farming to permanent dwellings with farms of a much larger scale. This abundance and advanced agriculture would not have been possible without the Bantu’s mastery of fire. Controlling fire allowed the Bantu to make great advances in urban design, as they were able to make iron from clay furnaces they constructed.
“In 1978 anthropology professor, Peter Schmidt, and professor of engineering, Donald Avery, both of Brown University, announced to the world that, between 1,500-2,00 years ago, Africans living on the western shores of Lake Victoria, in Tanzania, had produced carbon steel. The Africans had done this in pre-heated forced-draft furnaces, a method that was technologically more sophisticated than any developed in Europe until the mid-19th century. “We have found,” said Professor Schmidt, “a technological process in the African Iron Age which is exceedingly complex… To be able to say that technologically superior culture developed in Africa more that 1,500 years ago overturns popular and scholarly ideas that technological sophistication developed in Europe and in Africa.” – The Lost Sciences of Africa, by Ivan Van Sertima
Recent research and scholarship has proven that various Bantu tribes were able to even produce high quality steel in these same clay furnaces, 2000 years before steel was able to be produce in steel (albeit not of equal quality as the African).
“The issue of innovation features prominently in studies of precolonial African metalworking. In the 1980s, Schmidt and Avery (1983) advanced the hypothesis that East African iron smelters practiced the technique of preheating the air in the furnace before smelting began, thereby raising temperatures to produce high-carbon steels. This preheating technique is central to the blast furnace method prevalent today, and its postulation emphasized the high technical skill of traditional African metallurgists.” – The Oxford Handbook of African Archaeology, edited by Peter Mitchell, Paul Lane, PG 140
“The Haya (northern Tanzania) carbon steel pre-heated furnace discovered by Prof. Peter Schmidt and professor of engineering Donald H. Avery of Brown University, reported in the Science Magazine of September 22, 1979 that Africans produced steel 2,000 years before Europe. The furnace reached temperatures of 1800C, some 200C and 400C higher than the highest reached in European cold blast bloomer.” Shaping the Society Christianity and Culture: Special Reference to …, Volume 2, By Pastor Stephen Kyeyune, PG 111
The whole film can be viewed from parts 1-6, but it is dubbed in European Spanish. Even if you don’t understand Spanish, it is still interesting to watch the film and you are certain to learn a lot from just the visuals. This is, by far, the most beautiful and largest furnace I’ve seen:
The ability to produce steel and iron tools and weapons was a skill that gave the Bantu the ability to dominate the continent of Africa quickly. The mastery of fire allowed the Bantu to master other elements such as the earth through their farming tools and slash-and-burn African savannah agricultural techniques and the mastery of other tribes of people through their development of stronger metals and weaponry. As a result of their mastery of fire and agriculture, Bantu communities grew quickly and more resources and food were required to sustain their populations. As tribal families grew, new territory was sought to provide for the increased demands which often brought conflict between less and greater nations.
The competition for resources during the Bantu expansion was fierce and many battles were fought for the domination of trade networks and territory for their respective kingdoms. This constant warfare and the need for increasingly more efficient agricultural tools provided an environment under which some of the most advanced blacksmiths and metallurgical knowledge developed. The Bantu Expansion even created the circumstances for the diffusion of this knowledge into other countries as Bantu men sought more land to provide for their ever increasing populations.
“According to the Song dynasty history book Lushi (路史), Chiyou’s surname was Jiang (姜), and he was a descendant of Yandi. According to legend, Chiyou had a bronze head with metal foreheads.” – Chiyou, Wikipedia
We can conclude that the description of Chiyou in the Song Dynasty history book, Lushi, is that of a Negro. It is already known that the Bantu, who are Negroes, were present in Ancient China. However, the description of Chiyou’s head as being bronze sounds like the biblical description of the most famous Negro in the universe—Christ, the Messiah.
“And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters” – Revelations 1:15
Beyond the burnished bronze head of Chiyou, the description also speaks of the metal foreheads (plural probably in detail of the people with Chiyou).
The metal forheads are probably indicative of that which we see depicted on the Olmec heads of Meso-America. Ivan Van Sertima, in his book They Came Before Colombus, provides ample evidence in support of West African’s sailing across the Atlantics and form colonies and trade alliances with some Native American populations. Moreover, the people depicted in the heads of the Olmec statues have also been associated with a maritime warrior dynasty that also travelled to China.
The metal forehead protector is and helmets are evidence of a highly militarized group who were extremely familiar with warfare and weapons forging. These people were no strangers to the battlefield and introduced the warrior culture to the Far East. In China they are known as the Xi or Xia people. The Xi/Xia (Chinese for Hero) people preceded the Shang Dynasty of China, who were also described as Negroes.
“The Olmec are known as the Xi People, a group that migrated from Africa. Another group of people who joined the Olmes were the Black Xia of China. According to historians such as Wayne B. Chandler (African Presence in Early America), two of China’s earliest dynasties, the Shang and the Shia, were both heavily Black African/Black Oceanic dynasties, with Mongol Chinese as well. They dominated China about 2800 B.C. to 1100 B.C.
As early as 2200 B.C., members of the Black Shia began migrating out of China after they were replaced by the Black Shang Dynasty. The book, “A History of the African-Olmecs presents many references from Chinese sources to support the fact of Black civilizations in ancient China.
About 1100 B.C., migrants from northern China predominated by Mongoloids called Chou, invaded the Chang Kingdom and described the Chang as “black and oily skinned.” During that period many of the Black Chang migrated to Southern China, Indo-China and the Pacific Islands. Others went to the Americas, where they met an established Black Mende culture in Mexico.” – A History of African Olmecs, by Paul Barton
“In conclusion, the Olmec people were called Xi. They did not speak a Mixe-Zoque language they spoke a Mande language, which is the substratum language for many Mexican languages.” – Africans Came Before Columbus, Evidence of Africans in Ancient America, by Clyde A. Winters
It is also interesting to note that the Olmec/Xi people, who travelled to the America’s and China, that came from Africa, spoke Mande (language of the Manding people of West Africa). Mande is also said to be the substratum language for many Mexican languages as well as for Chinese.
“Wiener (1922) and Lawrence (1961) have maintained that the Olmec writing was identical to the Manding writing used in Africa. Wiener believed that the Tuxtla statuette was engraved with Mande signs… This affinity between Olmec and Mande signs supported the hypothesis of Wiener that the Tuxtla statuette was written in a Mande/Malinke-Bambara language.” – Is Olmec Syllabic Writing African, Chinese or Mixe?, by Clyde A. Winters
The connection between the African Olmecs Mande language and Chinese can be found on the ancient Chinese Oracle Bone.
“The first evidence of Chinese writing appeared around 2000 B.C., pottery found from such period, clearly marks the shell and oracle bone characters, which represented writing. According to archeological studies, the Shang symbols, is relatively compared with ancient Manding symbols. Though they show a slight difference in contemporary pronunciations these symbols, have the same meaning and shape. This suggest a genetic relationship between these scripts… this cognation of scripts supports the proposed Dravidian and Manding migration and settlement of ancient China during Xia times.” – Africans in the America’s Our Journey Throughout the World, by Sabas Whittaker, M.F.A., PG 79
The connection between Mande language and another eastern language one derived from Chinese, Japanese, is also made by Jewish historian, linguist, veteran and engineer, Joseph Eidelberg, in his book, The Biblical Hebrew Origin of the Japanese People.
“Later in his engineering carrier, while managing large Israeli overseas engineering operations, including Iran and Ivory Coast, the author discovered some interesting linguistic and cultural similarities between the Hebrew language and Bambara, spoken by an African tribe in Mali. Joseph, by then fluent in seven languages, began exploring ancient cultures, customs, symbols and words with great interest and unlimited curiosity. It soon became clear to him that through traces of culture, language and symbolic similarities between Hebrew, African languages and Japanese, he may have the right tools and the key to explore what were for the most fascinating mysteries of Jewish history…” – The Biblical Hebrew Origin of the Japanese People, by Joseph Eidelberg, PG xi-xii
All of these languages, Japanese, Ancient Chinese and Manding are connected by Hebrew. Hebrew was the language spoken by the Israelites who were scattered to the four corners of the earth and started that dispersion even before the Exodus. It is through these migrations that they started colonies throughout the world and maintained communication through trade networks. It should be quite evident that the Bantu imported iron forging into China and through the iron furnaces technologies were developed that advanced the Chinese culture and civilization. Israelites arriving by land, from Syria and Silk Road, as well as by Sea (Bantu/Phoenicians) from Africa and India. introduced this technology to China. In fact, in reference to the Phoenician West Africans who travelled to the Americas (as the Olmecs) and to China (as the Xi/Xia), the Phoenician Israelites seem to have founded China and are the origin of the name ‘China’.
The name China seems to be derived from the Greek word for Canaan, Xvã (Chi-n-ã). Canaan is said to be the first Phoenician, so perhaps the Greeks were referring to the Phoenicians (Israelites) when they spoke of Xvã (China/Canaan).
“In historical times the Phoenicians called themselves Canaanites, and their land Canaan, “the lowlands,” the latter applying equally to the coast, and the inland highlands, which the Israelites occupied.” – The American Catholic Quarterly Review, Volume 30, PG 333
Josephus, in Histories 2.104, cites Herodotus, who stated that, “The Phoenicians and the Syrians of Palestine were circumcised…” Josephus further states that, “there were no inhabitants of Palestine that are circumcised except the Judaeans [the Israelites].” Beside Phoenicia, which possess a large Israelite population and was itself being called ‘China’ by the Greeks, another connection between the name China and the Israelite Phoenicians of the land of Canaan can be found in the Hebrew word Kinah/Qiynah H7015. Kinah was the name of a town in the tribe of Judah as well as an eponym for the color purple.
“The Hebrew word ‘kinah,’ referenced in the Shekinah pillar, means ‘purple.’ Thus, the Shekinah literally means ‘she-purple.’ The Biblical land of Canaan has the same ‘kinah’ etymology, making it the ‘land of purple.’ As a result, the merchants that came from Canaan were called the purple merchants and even traded in a powdered purple pigment.” – Purple Shekinah, by Richard Merrick
Shennong and his descendant Chiyou, were both descendants of the Bantu Israelites and it is for this reason, that they were known as the Flame Emperor and the masters of Fire. The weapons created around the time of the Zhuolu War are evidence of their mastery of fire.
“The Sword of Goujian (越王勾踐劍) is an archaeological artifact of the Spring and Autumn period (771 to 403BC) found in 1965 in Hubei, China. Renowned for its sharpness and resistance to tarnish, this historical artifact of ancient China is currently in the possession of the Hubei Provincial Museum. The sword was found sheathed in a wooden scabbard finished in black lacquer. The scabbard had an almost air-tight fit with the sword body. Unsheathing the sword revealed an untarnished blade, despite the tomb being soaked in underground water for over 2,000 years. On one side of the blade, two columns of text are visible. Eight characters are written in an ancient script. The script was found to be Bird-worm seal script (literally “birds and worms characters” owing to the intricate decorations of the defining strokes), a variant of seal script. Initial analysis of the text deciphered six of the characters, “King of Yue” (越王) and “made this sword for [his] personal use” (自作用剑)
… It is likely that the chemical composition, along with the almost air-tight scabbard, led to the exceptional state of preservation.” – Sword of Goujian, Wikipedia
“The Spear of Fuchai (吳王夫差矛) is purportedly the spear of King Fuchai of Wu, the arch-rival of King Goujian of Yue. It was unearthed in Jiangling, Hubei in November 1983. The script on it is a kind of script used only in the states of Wu, Yue (state), and Chu called 鸟虫文 or bird and worms script, a variant of seal script. The inscription mirrors the text of King Goujian’s Sword, except changing the name of the owner and the type of weapon. In this case, the text reads, “吴王夫差自作用矛” or “[Belonging to] King Fuchai of Wu made for his personal use, this spear.” – Spear of Fuchai, Wikipedia
The Bantu Israelites’ mastery of fire and the use of fire in the names of the descendants of Yandi and Chiyou, is the origin of another epithet of the people—the fire nation. Being that the Japanese language is derived from Chinese, we can make the association between the Chinese masters of fire and the Japanese kanji that describes the Fire nation.
THE FIRE NATION
The Japanese kanji, 黒, meaning ‘black’, can is derived from two separate kanji. Think of it as a compound word.
Interestingly enough, the same kanji, 黑, also means pot/kettle which is related to the Kettle god.
“The Kitchen God also known as the Stove God, named Zao Jun, Zao Shen, or Zhang Lang, is the most important of a plethora of Chinese domestic gods that protect the hearth and family. The Kitchen God is celebrated in Vietnamese culture as well.” – Kitchen God, Wikipedia
A separate but related fire god is also found in Iran. The Haji Piruz is a Persian character symbolic of the ancient Zoroastrian fire-keeper. Notice that he wears black face makeup hinting at the appearance of the original Persian Fire keepers.
“Hāji Piruz or Hajji Firuz, popularly (Persian: حاجی پیروز ) in the language of literature and satire Haji or Hajji also (Persian: هاجى a satire maker) is the traditional herald of Nowruz, the Persian New Year that is usually represented by Donya in first year of dabirestan. He oversees celebrations for the new year perhaps as a remnant of the ancient Zoroastrian fire-keeper. His face is covered in soot and he is clad in bright red clothes and a felt hat.” – Blackface, Wikipedia
“It appears that Haji Firuz represents the red-dressed fire keepers of the Zoroastrians, who at the last Tuesday of the year, was sent by the white-dressed moghsor priests to spread the news about the arrival of the Nowruz. The fire-keeper’s second duty was to call on the people to burn their old items in the fire, and to renew their life and regain health by obtaining the solved energy of the fire… Mehrdad Bahar opined that the figure of the Haji Firuz is derived from ceremonies and legends connected to the epic of prince Siavash… He speculates that the name Siyāwaxš might mean “black man” or “dark-faced man” and suggests that the black part of the name may be a reference either to the blackening of the faces of the participants in the afore-mentioned Mesopotamian ceremonies, or to the black masks that they wore for the festivities.” – Haiji Firuz, Wikipedia
As mentioned earlier, the kanji for surname and fire (里 (nation/surname) + 灬 (fire)) were added together to create the kanji symbol of the nation/people of fire. It is said that the descendants of China’s Yan (flame) Emperor, also used fire as their surname and national symbol of identification.
“A long debate has existed over whether or not the Yan Emperor was the same person as the legendary Shennong. An academic conference held in China in 2004 achieved general consensus that the Yan Emperor and Shennong were the same person… No written records are known to exist from the era of Yan’s reign. However, he and Shennong are mentioned in many of the classic works of ancient China. Yan literally means “flame”, and K. C. Wu speculates that this appellation may be connected with the fire used to clear the fields in slash and burn agriculture… The Zuo Zhuan states that in 525 BC, the descendants of Yan were recognized as long having been masters of fire and having used fire in their names. Yandi was known as “Emperor of the South”… Both Huangdi and Yandi are considered in some sense ancestral to Chinese culture and people. Also, the tradition of associating a certain color with a particular dynasty may have begun with the Flame Emperors. According to the Five Elements, or Wu Xing model, red, fire, should be succeeded by yellow, earth—or Yangdi by Huangdi.” – Yan Emperor, Wikipedia
Another nation of fire can also be found in India and they were known as the Aryans.
“After the poems of the Rig Veda a story emerges. Over several centuries, is the tale of tribes moving across north India, led by the god of fire; burning forest looking for new land. The leaders of these tribes spoke Sanskrit [and] the Rig Veda shows that they fought battles among themselves and they called themselves, Aryans.”
It is said that only Brahmins are allowed to learn how to read the Rig Veda in the ancient Sanskrit language according to the documentary, The Story of India, episode 1, by Michael Woods. The Aryans in fact were a branch of Scythians (Saka/Sacae)
“The Scythians, another Aryan group, also moved north from the Caucasus into Europe where their name was changed by the Romans to distinguish between them and other peoples. The sacred emblems of the Scythians included the serpent, the Ox (Nimrod/Taurus), fire (the Sun, knowledge), and Tho or Theo, the god the Egyptians called Pan.” – The Biggest Secret, By David Icke, PG 61
“A fourth people, related to these Aryan tribes, who appear at this time in the narrative of Herodotus, are the Scythians.” – H. G. Wells Complete 41 Novels- In the Days of the Comet Invisible Man Soul …, By H. G. Wells
“These Scyths called themselves Aryas, the. ” noble ” or ” illustrious “, a title such as is common among primitive peoples; and they became the ancestors of the Medes, the Persians, and the Indian Aryas [Aryans].” – James Kennedy (1919). XV. The Aryan Invasion of Northern India: an Essay in Ethnology and History. Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain & Ireland (New Series), 51, pp 493-529
“There is no doubt that the Saka tribes living in Iran belong to the Iranian stock and were from the Aryan race.” – Iranian History at a Glance, By Dr Reza Shabani, PG 65
To further confirm the fact that the Scythians were indeed Aryans, we only have to look towards one of the ancient Scythian homelands—Sistan. Sistan, also known as Sakastan (land of the Sakas/Scythians), was within the territory known as Ariana (Aryan).
“Sistan derives its name from Sakastan which, on its part, derives from the name of the Saka tribes. The Saka (known as Scythians in Greek sources) began to settle in this region during the Parthian era… Sīstān, also known as Scythia, Sijistān (Arabic: سجستان), and Sākāstān (Persian/Baloch/Pashto: ساكاستان; literally “land of the Saka or Scythians”), is a historical region in present-day eastern Iran (Sistan and Baluchestan Province), southern Afghanistan (Nimruz, Kandahar, and Zabul Province), and the Nok Kundi region of Balochistan (western Pakistan). At times, the Saka territory encompassed areas as far east as Minnagara on the Indus River, in southwestern Sindh province of present-day Pakistan. Sistan was a part of the region of ancient Ariana. Sistan was once the homeland of Saka, a Scythian tribe of Iranian origin.” – Sistan, Wikipedia
“The Greek term Arianē (Latin: Ariana) is based upon an Iranian word found in Avestan Airiiana- (especially in Airiianəm Vaēǰō, the name of the Iranian peoples’ mother country)… The names Ariana and Aria, and many other ancient titles of which Aria is a component element, are connected with the Sanskrit term Arya-, the Avestan term Airya-, and the Old Persian term Ariya-, a self designation of the peoples of Ancient India and Ancient Iran, meaning “noble”, “excellent” and “honourable”.” – Ariana, Wikipedia
“The term Iranian is derived from the Old Iranian ethnical adjective Aryana which is itself a cognate of the Sanskrit word Arya. The name Iran is from Aryānām; lit: “(Land) of the Aryans”. The old Proto-Indo-Iranian term Arya, per Thieme meaning “hospitable”, is believed to have been one of the self-referential terms used by the Aryans, at least in the areas populated by Aryans who migrated south from Central Asia. Another meaning for Aryan is “noble”.” – Iranian peoples, Wikipedia
“The religious beliefs of the Scythians was a type of Pre-Zoroastrian Iranian religion and differed from the post-Zoroastrian Iranian thoughts. Foremost in the Scythian pantheon stood Tabiti, who was later replaced by Atar, the fire-pantheon of Iranian tribes, and Agni, the fire deity of Indo-Aryans.” – History of Humanity: From the seventh century B.C. to the seventh century A.D., edited by Sigfried J. de Laet, Joachim Herrmann, PG 182
The connections between fire and the Aryan-Scythians and the Israelites are numerous. This is a very interesting fact because the Scythians were Israelites and there was another Fire Nation of Israelites who arrived in China by Sea. They also introduced fire technology and slash-burn agriculture to China under the leadership of Shennong/Yandi and later, Chiyou. In fact, the red color on the red and yellow Chinese flag is symbolic of the Flame Emperor and his tribesmen—the Fire Nation. We remember that his descendants were known to be ‘masters of fire’ and this mastery was mainly attributed to their blacksmithing abilities. According to Chinese legend, it was Chiyou who introduced the craft of the blacksmith to the Chinese, much like Azazel introduced warfare to mankind before the flood.
“The Miáo are an ancient Chinese people, according to legend they are descended from the tribe of Chīyóu. Chiyou is said to have bulls horns growing from his head and to have been the inventor of the Jian (sword), Ji (halbred), and other traditional Chinese weapons. He is still worshiped by the Miao peoples as their ancestor, and has been worshiped since ancient times by the Han Chinese as a god of war. Even today the Miao people attribute their martial arts to the teachings of Chiyou.” – Miao People, Wikipedia
HMONG MIAO MARTIAL ARTS
Notice the Mitre/turban worn by the Miao men with the crown of the head exposed.
Even the women have fight in them. The ancient Hmong kicking game resembles the leg kicking of Muay Thai. The more ancient style Muay Boran, was developed by the same Hmong-Khmer people who also developed Hmong martial arts from Chiyou.
It is for these reasons that Chiyou was such a formidable foe during the war of Zhuolu. Like Hephaestus of the Greeks, Chiyou and his tribesmen crafted the finest weapons and tools.
Chiyou also taught the people the Martial Arts and the techniques on how to efficiently utilize weapons and tools they had crafted. These martial techniques and the knowledge of Iron/Steel forging in blast furnace was derived from the Israelites/Bantu, of which Chiyou was a descendent. Chiyou was a fierce warrior in ancient times and his descendants originating in southern China continue with the same warrior spirit today.
The Vietnamese were never defeated in the Vietnam War and the United States had to withdraw because of the rigors of jungle warfare and the high battle morale of the people. The whole world has grown familiar with Muay Thai Kick Boxing as an essential element of cross-training for any mixed-martial artist. The eternal fire of the Israelites by way of Yandi, Chiyou, and their descendants is still burning until this day.
“He led his tribe in battle against the coalition of tribes under Huang Di (the Yellow Emperor) who is considered the father of the Han (Chinese) ethnic group. After losing to Huang Di at the Battle of Zhuolu (26th century BC) his tribe was forced south. Since that time the Miao have been pushed south, with some settling in each area while others moved on. Over time the Miao fragmented into different tribes each with their own local customs… Today Miao tribes can be found from Hunan province in the north, west to Sichuan and Yunnan provinces, and south to Laos and Burma.” – Martial Arts of the Miao People, Youtube
Interesting to note the similarities between Miao headdress and that found on the Easter Island Statues and the Seminole Indian of North America.
Are these correlations further evidence to support the Phoenician connections to the Far East by way of the African and American continents?
