Everglades National Park heritage site of Unesco covers Dade, Monroe and Collier counties of Florida at the southern tip of the Atlantic coastal plain. Several walking trials like Anhinga and Gumbo Trails are a part of this heritage site. Its Cypress forest at Pa-Hay-O-Kee, and Mahogany Hammock(referring to Switenia mahagom) shows ancient migrants’ participation in these dense forest areas.
Science of Etymology will change the day academic world will learn that name of all ancient settlements identify a bird or a tree or an animal and their natural habitat. This was the only way to identify a human settlement from ancient literature. Damage has been made beyond recognition when English translation of these names shifted the natural habitat of birds from one region to another and damages becomes more pronounced when after the deluge new human settlements were set up elsewhere around the world ; names of these settlements were given forgetting the old system of naming but with twist of tongues old names live with different meanings.
Ancient migrants took local birds with them, and these birds in their new habitat were called in the name of their old settlement. Anhinga refers to the region of Ahoganga or the river Ganges flowing in the region of ‘Aho’(Yahweh); similarly, Gumbo refers to Gambhari region. Mahogany’s root is in Mahanama; this was the region where King Mahanama was living. It was also known as Mahodaya and the Bible knew it as Mahanaim and Mahanem. Here was flowing the river Ahoganga; Cypress wood identifies the ancient Cyprus country which identifies itself with the seat of worship God Kubera, God of Wealth. Switenia–Mahagom means ‘sweta’ or ‘White Region’;
Pa-Hay-O-Kee—Bahuka/Bahika country; it identifies the ancient Babylon; it is also known as Balhika region.
Dade—Darad country; the region of Dio river and Dido’s country. It is as same as the ancient Roman settlement on the bank of the river Dio/Daya river.
Monroe—Moeris or Mayura(name of a bird-Peacock) country;
Collier—Koliyan/Koili which again refers to the name of a bird;
Anhinga belongs to the darter family, Anhingidae, and is closely related to its counterparts in India, Africa, and Australia called Anhinga melanogaster, Anhinga rufa and Anhinga novaehollandaiae respectively. These species are found all over the world means they accompanied the ancient migrants to help them in their long sea journey detecting the land-destination. In Andes in South America, Trinidad, Tobago, Cuba, Mexico, Grenade and also in USA; migratory nature of birds marks their relative human memory linking genetic attraction for their ancient habitats. This becomes more highlighted when the kettles of Anhinga often migrate with other birds.
Heron/Egret belongs to the family Ardeidae; they are seen in all continents except Antarctica. Cold habitats do not favour them, and they exist mostly in water regions. As they open their wings in the night, ancient migrants took the migratory herons with them to help them searching a new land.
The name heron has its root in heron region which means the region of Mt Hor/Heren/Haran as same as Arun(region of hiranya-garbha/ a river in this name in the region of Sun); according to scholars, the heron first appeared in the English literature around 1300, originating from Old French hairon, aron(12th c A.D.), earlier hairo(11th c), from French haigiro or from Proto-Germanic haigro, hraigro. Scholars did not identify it with biblical Aaron and Heren; Helen of classics also identifies the same region and carries the same meaning.
Again, Herons are known as shitepokes(means kshiti-garbha means hiranya–garbha which means ‘carrying gold in the womb’; kshit– means ‘earth’, and garbha means ‘womb’. Both shypokes and shikepokes refer to Sri or Si, and pokes may mean kanth; heron cannot be seen outside the region of Sri or See as it is linked with a historic incident connected with the Buddha as well as with the Rising and Setting of the Sun. Webster’s Dictionary’s suggestion that herons were given this name because of their habit of defecting when flushed is not correct.
Scholars claim of getting fossilised herons from different sites;
Present Wyoming, Fayyum, Varns-dorf, Ardeagradis and Otago are second settlements of ancient migrants; and the names given herons can also be seen through the name of their respective fossil regions: Wyo-ming, Fan, Vamsa, Arada/Udra, and Attica/Oat regions. Showing the fossil sites of heron to different geological time frame of earth is wrong.
Everglades is a region of wetlands and forests with five counties meeting at one point near the centre of the Lake Okeechobee: Glades, Okeechobee, Martin, Palm Beach, and Hendry; the interesting part of the lake is that the Kissimmee River is located directly to the north of this lake. Waters from Kissimmee River, Fisheating Creek and Lake Istopoga, Nubbin Slough, and Nicodemus Slough flow in the lake
Origin of the name Okeechobee is in ‘oki’ means Uruk of the Bible; it also means ‘Akka’ or ‘acca’ of the same source. –chobee means ‘chabaka’ or a pond. It may mean ‘chabi’ means ‘picture’.
Mayami does not mean ‘big water’; it refers to ‘Maya Ma’ or Mother Maya, mother of the Buddha whose temple was in Uruk and near which was the sacred bathing place Triveni. Hitachiti word ‘oki’ refers to ark/arc/arch or arka; it was the source of water but does not mean ‘water’. ‘ki’ means ‘earth’. The large fresh water of the ‘inhabited world’ was Kaspeira which was carrying the name of Caspo as same as Sage Kasyapa; it was also called Narayana Sar. The name Serrope refers to Sorupa. It was not a mythical lake. This lake was in Kashmir country from which the name of Kissimmee is originated. Name Istopoga means ‘Asta’-boga or the land of Asta Village or Seat of Worship of Eight Primordial Gods. It is as same as arka-kshetra or place of arka.
OIn the southern rim of Lake Okeechobee, three islands—Kremer, Ritta and Torey—were once settled by early pioneers and now they were abandoned. These names held the ancient migrants’ geographical identity.
Torey—Torah of the Bible; Tyre/Troy/Toya; Torry Island is as same as Tyre of Alexander’s historians. Ancient Palm region was neighbourly to Karmala as well as to Ratilo. Palm region identifies the ancient Kusinagar or the Kingdom of Cush.
