    Mapuche People of Fresolano Land of Transatlantic Navigator Friso of Frisia Mapudungun Indo European

    Mapudungun, the language spoken by the Mapuche people of the Fresolano region of Chile, means earth (mapu) speaker (dungun), the word mapu perhaps indo european (japhetic) like the word map (of the earth), which would not be surprising considering the language is an isolate and of an ostensibly unknown origin, those people whom the later Spaniards dubbed the Araucanians. King Friso sailed away from Frisia (the Netherlands) circa 300 b. c., probably not the first to have sailed to South America after Atland was consumed by the sea.
