Was Tamana a Universal Civilization of Mankind Before the Great Flood?
It would appear the Tamana people belonged to an ancient confederation called Maa. Members of the Maa or Fish Confederation include the Magyar, Egyptians, Elamites, Manding, Afro-Asiatic speakers and the Dravidians.
The name Maa was either their great ancestor Noah, Atra Hasis, etc., or the god worshipped by these ancient navigators. In honor of this great ancestor the descendants of the Tamana people used the term ma, to denote 'greatness or highness'. For example the term for 'great' is, Magyar:Maga- s; Manding Maga; and Dravidian Ma.
The Tamana people also claim descent from the great Maa, founder of the Fish Confederation. For illustration, the Manding or Mandikan people call themselves Ma-nde (the children of Ma); the Sumerians called themselves Mah-Gar-ri (exalted children); while the Magyar refer to themselves as Muh-ger-ri (Mogeri) or Ma-ka-r (exalted children).

The research of Dr. Vamos-Toth Bator indicates that the Tamana had their own writing as proven by the similarity of the pottery writing found on ancient samples from Africa and Eurasia. In addition, they possessed an outstanding boat technology and knowledge of nautical astronomy. These Proto-Saharans offered prayers to Ka 'the ancient spirit/God’: Magyar Kan; Mandikan Kani; and Dravidian Ka-n.
Toth, after years of research has found the missing link in ancient history, that is numerous global toponyms that point to a common origin around the world. Although many scholars would dispute this claim right away without reviewing the evidence, the results of Toth's research, when viewed with an open mind and including the hundreds of toponyms that he has discovered, shows a link between place-names in Africa, Eurasia and the Americas, that deserves to be examined by other academics.
A key element of Vamos Toth’s research has been the discovery of regularity of prefixed or suffixed place-name elements. The use of this method is not new. It was also used by Allen Mawer, in 1924 in his book The Chief Elements Used in English Place-Names.
The toponymic data collected by Toth compliments the work of N.Lahovary, who in Dravidian Origins and the West made factual claims about the common origin of pre-Indo-European cultures in Europe and Asia. The discovery of the -ari element in many toponymic examples is significant because ari, agrees with ur, the Dravidian suffix for 'city, village or town'. In Sumerian ur/ uru, has a similar meaning. This corresponds to terms in the Manding languages where we have furu, or 'property of a clan'. This compliments the findings of Lahovary of the widespread use of ar, among the hydronomic names from Europe to India.
Toth gives many Tamana place-names with the ma- element. This agrees with the Manding word ma: 'area' or 'surface', this corresponds to the Dravidian word man : 'earth', 'soil' and 'land'.
Another common place-name element recognized by Toth is ka and ki. The ka element seems to represent an inhabited area. For example, in the Dravidian languages ka means fortification, in Manding languages -ka, is a locative suffix joined to place-names, while in Swahili ka means 'to live (in), dwell. In Sumerian, -ki, is the past position determinative placed after the name of places and countries.
The final Tamana place-name elements covered by Thoth are: gu,nu, Bum and Buna. These terms, from the study of the languages spoken by the Tamana culture, were used to refer to home or domicile. For example, the bo or bu element is often found in the terms for house; for example, Kannada gibu is 'house' and Manding bo is 'house'. The nu element can be found in many languages as n+vowel, for instance, Dravidian nakar is 'house', Manding nu is 'habitation of a family or clan'.
The Dravidian term mal, or mala was a common root in the toponyms of the Near East, Europe, India and Mexico. In the Dravidian languages mala means mountain, or hill or large rough rocks. In the Magyar language, a member of the Ural-Altaic group mal means 'pile, stack, heap and hill'.

The Dravidian, Manding and Ural Altaic languages can explain the place names 'sand' and 'kara'. The kara term is most interesting. This name is very popular especially in Inner Asia. This term occurs as a name for towns situated along rivers, streams or lakes. This suggests that kara is a water sign.
