Language Families Chart Maps 2

I had done the maps on this last time but I think I had not got my point across. We have this large arc of language families with a series of different but parallel crossings of the Pacific and a series of languages originating about in the area of China (including Mongolia and Taiwan) that resettled as American language families.This includes both the Aztecs and their forerunners in Mesoamerica, and the ancestors of the Polynesians were once again stated as South Americans. (From the chart below the Chibchans are also related to the Panoan and Tacanan Pre-Incas, and thence out to the Polynesians) So we are back to Kon-Tiki voyagers once again: It is VERY Likely that Lapita Ware people established a beachhead in Northwestern South America by 1000 BC. This harmonizes with the often-maligned suggestion that the Siouan languages had features like the Malayo-Polynesians: they would be showing features transmitted through the Chibchans, and the waves of influence Northwards would be followed by Mayan influences on the Caddoan and Muskhogean languages, and then Arawak settlements in Florida and along the coast of Texas, Going by the Andean-Equstorial classification (and I see no reason to drop it, I think it is an excellent arrangement), the Quechua languages of the Andes and the Tupi languages of the Amazon and Coastal Brazil are related to the Arawak: Carib and most of the more southerly South American languages retain even older remnants showing them to be related to New Guinean and Australian Aboriginal Languages. This is all in line with the presentation in Men Out of Asia, oddly enough, and the Andean-Equatorial languages are the more recen Atlantean (Archaic) additions) (The oldest Atlantean settlers were Nostratic speakers and their descendants are loosely grouped under the heading "Penutian" which includes Mayan) There are other, later, West-African influences that are also identifiable in Mexico, Mesoamerica and probably Northern South America, but this aspect is usually said to have been derived from African slaves later on. On the other hand there seems to be good evidence this runs all the way back to the Nubian period in Egypt: a future blog entry should touch on this.
From the look of the map, the importance of the trade winds in crossing the Pacific either way seems to be considerable.

Cariban seems related to Jge and then to the Patagonian languages, and these languages are generally taken to be very old and very primitive.
Continuing to draw on the same sources as before and extending the speculation, and as always cross-checking with the Wikipedia and other standard references. The Wikipedia entries on such standard groups as the Athabascans (Dene), Uto-Aztecans and so on have been listed on this blog before.
(Note, thought to be related to the  Choco languagesPano–Takanan, Misumalpan languages, Xinca, and Lenca by different authorities, all seem to be sound suggestions)
