  Anybody ever look into it? This all started from someone I know from Puerto Rico who he said he is half Assyrian and spoke some Assyrian to me that put me to shame  :beee: (whatever LOL) anyways he told me his father was half Assyrian and half French, although I never heard of Assyrians coming into Puerto Rico except some info on Lebanese Christians and Christians from Syria that migrated in the island of Puerto Rico ...

Another story I found was one Puerto Rican who thought to be true Puerto Rican (Tiano indian 'native to the island,' Spanish and African mix) well he did took the ancestry DNA test that show no results of any Tiano or African and not so much of Spanish Celtic-Iberians... The results shows some Berbers, and of majority of Middle Eastern regional areas mainly focusing in Northern Iraq where most Assyrian people lives (which could be most likely be Assyrian for him, obviously)... and some Spanish-Jew or Separdic jew....  I know many Arabs that lost some of their Arab roots and converted to Christianity in Spain and many have left to Latin Americas such as Puerto Rico and Cuba and among other places.


Any thoughts here?

I believe it.  For example, Carlo Slim Helu - born and raised in Mexico.  I'm pretty sure many other Assyrians moved to Latin America and mated :)

apparently 80,000 Assyrians migrated to Brazil during the genocide but no one knows about Assyrians in Brazil now.

You would be surprised with how much Brazilians know about Assyrians.  It is the only place in the world that I have visited that when I say the word Assyrian, not only do they know what I am talking about, not only do they get excited to meet an Assyrian, but right away, Brazilians ask, "Is your name Bani short for Banipal, as in Ashurbanipal?"  They do however argue about my surname sounding Portuguese rather than Assyrian.

Immigrant groups in Brazil tend to blend in/assimilate a lot faster and easier than say in Australia, where Assyrians remain Assyrians, Italians remain Italians and Lebs remain Lebs. 

I guess alot of the famous and good football player are of assyrian origin :D

Rumour has it that Eder and Ze Elias were of Assyrian origin but considering there are more Lebs in Brazil than in Lebanon itself, they are more likely of Lebanese origin.

I am helping in bridging that Brazilian Assyrian gap! Thanks to Michelle and I, our offspring Alyssa is the result! Lol.

Plus Brazilian Jui Juitsu is the Shizznay! Not to mention Acia, or Kibe which is very similar to Kooba but fried, I think it was the Lebanese that brought it to Brazil?

 

Do we Assyrians rely too heavily on God? what are youre thoughts
