Tohkare (Tokahle) People – Youtube viewer makes incredible discovery.
If readers have seen Part One on the Georgia Petroglyphs, you probably remember the Tokare, a branch of the Uchee, who were the ancestors of the Tokase-Creeks and Tokhapasi (Tuckabatchee) Creeks. Their name They also founded the Overhill Cherokee town of Toqua and the Lower Cherokee town of Toccoa. They were known as the Hogalogee to the Shawnee and Algonquians. A tribe with an identical name were the elite in Ireland and apparently, Iberia. Tocari was also their name in Latin. In Irish Gaelic their name means “Principal Kingdom or Nation.” In Gallic France and in Greek, they were known as the Tocaroi. “Re” was the Irish word for a kingdom, while “roi” was the Gallic & Greek word for a kingdom. The following question was sent to me by a viewer after he watched Part One of the Petroglyphs of Georgia.
I immediate looked up “Tocharian” and learned the ethnic name was coined by a German ethnologist for a nomadic Indo-European tribe, which eventually occupied the northwestern edge of China. They called themselves Tokahri . . . the same name as the elite people of Ireland and the Highland Uchee in the Southeastern United States. There must be a connection. Today we know them as the “White Chinese,” since they have very little Eastern Asiatic DNA. The video from which the photo above was made seemed out in lala land. The girl looked like she should be speaking Gaelic Irish or Norwegian, but she spoke Mandarin Chinese to the TV news reporter. Her costume looks like it belongs to one of the Baltic or Slavic nations. Her ancestors language became extinct around 900 AD. I strongly suspect that it was an archaic form of Gaelic.
By the way, I just realized that that the horrific explosions of ground lightning, which I experienced in early July 2019, killed all the yellow jackets and moles in my property. There is a positive aspect to everything that happens. LOL
