South American Natives Speak Ancient European Language? Part 2

To the people of the KÉT-ŐS kingdom

When in August of 1966 Moricz arranged to speak to the people of the KÉT-ŐS kingdom on the airwaves of the Quito radio, he asked the people of the ancient homeland not to be angry with the Magyars, because they have not returned to the ancient homeland all this time, “but believe me – he said – we, like You, my beloved brethren, have also suffered a lot under the bloody terror of the Habsburgs. Today I know that when you were waiting for us to return, instead came the tyranny of the Spanish conquerors. The dark centuries endured have washed away the road leading here to the ancient homeland, but in our souls we have always and everywhere searched for you.”

The cultural director of Quito took the stand with a voice clouded with emotion and the radio crew listened with tears in their eyes to his long speech of appreciation. As Moricz was leaving he noticed that during the broadcast a crowd had gathered and everybody wanted to know whether they had relatives and if so, where they live.

A few days after an impromptu committee contacted Moricz consisting of members of the radio crew and they informed him that the Spanish had asked the government not to allow Moricz to speak to the people again. The little committee had come, however, to ask Moricz to arrange another spiritually uplifting speech, because they cannot endure any longer the tyranny of the Spanish. With great difficulty and a heavy heart Moricz had to explain to this little enthusiastic group that the time was not yet ripe for him to be able to do that.

The descendants of the conquistadores

Later, one day, Moricz was invited to negotiations by a very prominent and rich descendant of a conquistador. Their negotiations lasted three days. Moricz insisted during this time only that his sole interest with regards to his his research is pure science. Finally, the very prominent conquistador descendant lost his temper and said he cannot imagine the Magyars renouncing the land of their ancestors.

“By the way, – he said – You know full well that the many peoples of Asia are kin to the Magyars and You also know what this means!” When Moricz countered that he is only interested in the scientific question, the conquistador stated that, “it is not possible that a people would pronounce their own death sentence; for such a people, that is searching for its past for the sole reason to get to know it, is a dead people. This is not something I can assume about You.” In front of him, on the desk, was a large postmarked envelope stamped with the seal of the foreign office. The contents was not difficult to guess.

As these developments evolved and time passed Moricz received several similar proposals which he found personally derogatory and therefore rebuffed. The gist of these proposals were that he quit his research. One group of landowners proposed that those properties on which according to them Moricz could lay claim, they would “return” to him, with the condition that he keeps quiet about everything and that no other Hungarian researchers show up here. These are the properties near Móri-urcu, that is, Móri-Úr-Kő.1 As before, Moricz rejected these proposals, too. Following these incidents, Moricz was informed that on one of these meetings (of conquistador descendants) the question arose whether or not Moricz should be eliminated to stop his disturbances. Some, allegedly, argued against this, because they thought that, on the one hand, Moricz had too big a press coverage and, on the other hand, a possible assassination would draw the attention of the Hungarians to Ecuador. Besides, Moricz disappearing under such suspicious circumstances would trigger unpredictable consequences among the ancient tribal populations. The most weighty argument was maybe such, that from now on Moricz carried a large calibre Colt revolver on his person and anyone could have personally experienced how quickly he could use it.

Yugoslav (!) Indians

In a similar vein, a rich landowner from the Loja province went to see Moricz in Guayaquil and informed him that he had discovered much sooner that the Indians are from Europe, but that their language is not Magyar, as Moricz claims, but Yugoslav. Actually, the reason for his visit was to officially proclaim this discovery. Answering Moricz’ question as to how he came to this conclusion, he answered that after the Second World War came a Yugoslav worker who he employed on his ranch. This man has to this day not learned to speak Spanish, but from the first day he made himself perfectly understood by the ancient population (Indians) working on the ranch, whose language he, the landowner, does not understand. From this he had a long time ago deduced that the language of the Indians is the Yugoslav language. When he was informed that Moricz had made an announcement regarding his own discoveries, he decided to do the same, after which he clarified that while the Indians were European in origin, they were not Magyars but Yugoslavs. When Moricz asked what the name of the man was, the landowner answered that it was KOVÁCS. Moricz then told him that ‘Kovács’ in Spanish is ‘Herrero’, that is, it means ‘smith’ (forger, blacksmith) and that this man, Kovács, speaks to his American brethren not in the non-existent Yugoslav language but in the Magyar language. The dumbfounded landowner exclaimed that he renounces his “discovery”, because – so he said – if Moricz knows even what “kovács” means in Spanish, then clearly he must be a wise scholar. Apart from the landowner nobody knew this and he himself only learned this from Kovács, who even to this day lives happily with his brethren in their ancient homeland, hardly speaking a word of Spanish. And on top of everything, his profession is a smith.
