Drop Links | Cacique, Ka-See-ke, Qatsi=Chief | ArawaKan= HaWa Khan | Dropped by Kurimeo Ahau

Was watching one of your videos and heard you mention the word ” Cacique ” as you read. Just in case you may already know this but Cacique is the word we are taught in spanish speaking countries for ” chief ” of a tribe. (Ka-See-ke)

I got a thought and said to myself hmmm ohh yeah let me see how do you say Chief in Hebrew.
I searched google and got this as the answer ” Qatsi ” 
I Think these words Cacique & Qatsin are too similar as to be related etymologically. CACI (Ka-see)  &  QATSI (Kaw-tsee)
So heres the backdrop of the word Cacique according to the highjack:
cacique (Spanish: [kaˈθike]Portuguese: [kɐˈsikɨ, kaˈsiki]; feminine form: cacica) is a leader of an indigenous group, derived from the Taíno word kasikɛ for the pre-Columbian tribal chiefs in the Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, and the northern Lesser Antilles. In the colonial era, Spaniards extended the word as a title for the leaders of practically all indigenous groups that they encountered in the Western Hemisphere. In Spanish AmericaBrazilSpain, and Portugal, the term also has come to mean a political boss or leader who exercises significant power in the political system known as caciquismo.
Derived from Taino so:  Taíno is an extinct and poorly-attested Arawakan language that was spoken by the Taíno people of the Caribbean. At the time of Spanish contact, it was the principal language throughout the Caribbean.
“Extinct” right… Yeah Sure. Like all the other “Extinct” Tribal languages of the American Tribes !!  Most likely Old Hebrew
ArawaKan (AWA) (KAN) right…..  Arawakan (Arahuacan, Maipuran Arawakan, “mainstream” Arawakan, Arawakan proper), also known as Maipurean (also Maipuran, Maipureano, Maipúre), is a language family that developed among ancient indigenous peoples in South America. Branches migrated to Central America and the Greater Antilles in the Caribbean and the Atlantic, including what is now called the Bahamas. Only present-day EcuadorUruguay and Chile did not have peoples who spoke Arawakan languages.  SO Peru did!!!

The name Maipure was given to the family by Filippo S. Gilij in 1782, after the Maipure languageof Venezuela, which he used as a basis of his comparisons. It was renamed after the culturally more important Arawak language a century later.

Classification of Maipurean is difficult because of the large number of Arawakan languages that are extinct and poorly documented. However, apart from transparent relationships that might constitute single languages, several groups of Maipurean languages are generally accepted by scholars. Many classifications agree in dividing Maipurean into northern and southern branches, but perhaps not all languages fit into one or the other. The three classifications below are accepted by all:
