About the Canada surname


Canada of America might have been named of Dekanawida that is de-Kanawi-Da king of Huron nation and founder of Iroquois alias Haudenosaunee confoederation in what is according to Europeans counting form 1387 b.c.1142 and with linear counting 245 b.c.. He may be identical with Hierón king of Sikelians and with Ashoka of Dekkan called by Parthians by title Arshak,ruling for about 56 years from 276 until 220 b.c..

On his way from India / Aigypt to the Holy Land many of the Kannada nation of the Dekkan might have followed him and might have given name to their leader as wellas to the region they occupied . Kannadas and Tamils mostly descend from the tribe of Aban-Nawa-Ma-Wan-Na and as such have always been served by Levites of Slav dialect . This may be the reason Sikelia was called by the Tri-Krom-Ostrok meaning Triangle Island,and that became on Nawatl lips lacking "r" sound Chicomoztoc . Dekan-Awida was also called S'kennenrahaw as he was grandson of Shaken-Nawa-Ha - that is Iskender

- and was called En-Neg-Ra-Ra-Wa-Ha .

Jews and christians call them Benyamin,Shelanyah and Nearyah .
