Why Is Sanskrit Found in the Tribal Names & Languages of North & South American 'Indians'?

The video below (in 5 parts) is Grahm Hancocks's documentary 'Hindu India - The Birth of Civilization: Dwarka 10,000 Year Old Metropolis is Found'. [THE VIDEO NO LONGER AVAILABLE DUE TO 'THIRD PARTY NOTIFICATIONS OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT' ...] Lately I've been wondering what kind of impact this 2001 discovery of a 10,000 year old 'metropolis' submerged off the coast of northwestern India has made on modern man. How thoroughly has this site been studied? How have the historians and history books adjusted to the evidence that Indian civilization was advanced enough to build such a city 10,000 years ago? I am currently reading a book titled 'India Once Ruled the Americas' by Gene D. Matlock that gives quite a bit of linguistic evidence that various waves of Indians colonized the Americas for thousands of years, forming or greatly influencing the Native American population. The obvious irony is that American Indian's were supposedly mistaken and henceforth dubbed 'Indians' by Christopher Columbus in the late 1400s. But considering the Sanskrit roots of the vocabulary and even the tribal names of many North and South American Indians, it seems that Native Americans really are, at least to some significant degree either of Indian descent or greatly influenced by India.

I came to be curious about this theme a few years ago when I noticed that the Monongahela River of West Virginia (where I was born), which was apparently the territory of the Monongahela tribe of Native Americans, sounded an awful lot like two Sanskrit words, Menaka - the wife of Himvat (a personification of the Himalayas) and hila - which means 'of a mountain'. Menakahila - Monongahela??? Menaka and Himvat are known in Indian lore to be the parents of the goddess Ganga/Parvati. I found out that the Monogahelia 'Indians' are thought to have migrated to the Appalachian territory from Asia some 12,000 to 15,000 years ago; and I then began to wonder if the 'wife of Himvat' showed up anywhere else in the ancient Appalachian mountains. As it turns out, there is actually a Meneka Peak in Seven Fountains, Virginia. Strangely enough the daughter of Menaka is Ganga (the personification of the Ganges River) who is said to have been poured through Shiva's hair to become the SEVEN sacred rivers of India. What an interesting coincidence between Meneka Peak and its Seven Fountains (named after seven springs) and Menaka's daughter, the Ganges, becoming seven rivers as it descended through the massive Himalayan mountains.

Now, upon reading Gene Matlock's book and being ever more familiar with the antiquity and wide scope or extension of the Vedic culture throughout the world, I am curious as to when such matters will be more widely examined. Is it just a coincidence that the Monongahela River happens to flow vertically down through the longitude 79 W and the source of the Ganges is 79 E longitude? If Vedic and post Vedic Indians really did colonize North and South America over many aeons, how did they personify or mythologize the ancient Appalachian mountains? Did they recognize a relationship between the Appalachians and the Himalayas?

Perhaps Grahm Hancock's documentary will encourage more exploration into the true history of Vedic India and its influence on the world. It is well worth 50 minutes of one's time.
