On Wednesday June 16th, 2010, in the University of Toronto, the relationships of the Aboriginal Cultures of America were explored in “Aboriginal Cultures and the Anthropological Unity of America” with Ivan Andres Romo as the speaker.

There exists an ancient language that has lasted throughout the ages, enriching languages worldwide and now bringing to light interesting discoveries. Aymara. This sacred language of antiquity currently exists in parts of Bolivia, Peru and Chile but shows its influence through all of North, Central and South America. Yukon, for example, means 'yellow snow' in Aymara (do we not find both snow and gold there?). Ottawa means 'is house' (interestingly enough this is where we now find Canada's Parliament House). Canada means 'Will Illuminate', and as we go down the American continent we will see a large amount of places with names of Aymara origin.
In the most remotest of times, there existed a distant communication from Canada to Chile, but how? What evidence is there of this? What vestiges have our profound ancestors left us of the anthropological unity?
Many of these cultures flourished in science, humanitarianism, art, and philosophy and contrary to popular belief, studies show migrations from America to Asia.
What has made the American Continent so unique is its rich history in cooperation, union, a love for nature and an understanding of profound concepts. Pilgrimages throughout all of North, Central and South America occurred in sacred areas such as in present day New Mexico where the ancient Anasazi Culture travelled. Centers of pilgrimage ranged from Cahokia in modern day Mississippi as a center for North American cultures, to Cuzco, Peru as the "Navel of the World", to modern day Puerto Rico where the Taino culture hosted grand reunions for all of the cultures of America.

It is interesting to note the similarities found between, for example, the artifacts found in Lima, Peru and Colima, Mexico,
proof of the distant voyages in the past and interchanges of knowledge. These relationships and more were discussed.
After the conference, a diploma was given to Rochelle Allan who facilitated the Magna Fraternitas Universalis to use their lounge in the First Nations House in the University of Toronto and another diploma was given to the First Nations House for there collaboration, both on behalf of our institution.
