An ancient Indian painting of Ethiopian Musician playing the Kirar

Ethiopians have had very intimate relations with Indians. In fact, in antiquity the Ethiopians ruled much of India. These Ethiopians were called the Naga. It was the Naga who created Sanskrit, the classical language of Indian and the liturgical language of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism.

A reading of ancient Dravidian literature which dates back to 500 BC, gives us considerable information on the Naga. In Indian tradition the Naga won central India from the Villavar (bowmen) and Minavar (fishermen).

The Naga were great seamen who ruled much of India, Sri Lanka and Burma. To the Aryans they described as half man and snake. The Tamil knew them as warlike people who used the bow and noose.

The Naga came from Kush-Punt/Ethiopia.

Naga literally means peace in the Cushitic Oromo Language.
