      We know enough about DNA of South American Indians
      Tihuanaco was constructed by people who had 31% mtDNA ouside the official Amerindian mtDNA, A, B, C, D, X2?

      amazons
       
         first, lets discuss the conditions that led to a tribe of female warriors.  then, determine, if the amazons can be seen as unique to a time and place.  traditions can lead to sometimes the death of all of the men in a society.  the males were taught to be brave and bold as soldiers, this was true in greece and scythia.  they all went to war, and came back victorious, or not at all.  mothers told their husbands and sons, to come back carrying their shield, or upon it.  the thoughts and mindset of the women, were much the same as the men.  as seen in the line above. 
         if all of the men of an island or locale, fell in battle, leaving such women, they would unite and organize, for the general welfare and defence.  in time, they might be looked upon as amazons.  this likely happened, over and over, thru long ages, when the same type of battles were taking place, for many thousands of years.  this was certainly true for greece and scythia.  the old name was given the new group of women. 
         lets try to recall the events when egypt was bold enough to invade scythia.  they struck, and maybe looted, and then fled back to egypt.  the scythian warriors [magyar] chased them back to the nile, where the defences prepared by pharaoh, stopped them.  instead of returning to scythia, they loved the luxury they had found, so they stayed in asia, becoming known as the parthians.  very effective, with turning in the saddle, to make great bowshots, upon parting from the enemy, who got careless, thinking that they had routed them. 
         its said, that the women abandoned in scythia, by the parthians, became amazons. 
         there were reports of amazons from the time of the first heracles, thru the time of the trojan war.  the same conditions and mindset, lasted far longer, so we must preclude that amazons could have existed far back in prehistoric times. 
         could amazons have lived along the river, now bearing their name, as recently as 1540 ce?  my first reaction had been highly unlikely, after reading the account of the author of that river adventure.  however, after reviewing what humboldt reported, im left to wonder if it were true.  the turks were putting pressure on greece then, and many men lost their lives.  the conditions were ripe for another tribe of amazons forming.   he found green carved stones, that were associated with the amazon legend. 
         i might question, why the amazons would select to travel as far as south america, when with prowess, they could have carved out a holding somewhere closer to home.  the amazon and orinoco jungles, were and are, dangerous regions, with tribes still using carare poison darts.  they contain very little for an outsider to find to eat.  far easier to be eaten, or have your head shrunk.  this is changing fast today, as settlers slash and burn, deep into the interior.  i had expected that this expansion, would uncover remains of ancient cultures, and cities, like fawcett sought.  so far, no such finds have been reported.
