Link between tuscarora/skararure, etruscan, euskara/basque, tukhara/tocharian/tushara/yuezhi/gushi/kushan?

Tuscarora ("hemp gatherers"[1]) are a Native American people of the Iroquoian-language family

Greenwood:  Amerind branch he calls Keresiouan. Examples of these citations include:

ku…reh ‘acorn’, in relation to *kul, 'tree'
nyatar ‘sea’, in relation to *na, 'water'

Compare *kul, 'tree' to these:

Greek húlē 'forest, wood; firewood, timber; possibly via Etruscan, from Euroasiatic root  *[z]ilwV 'wood' (Starostin), reflected in Altaic *sjulu (˜ *z-, -l´-) 'conifer, pine tree', [and to silva (forest).]

Tusharas (alias Tukharas, Tócharoi) were a Mleccha tribe, with their kingdom located in the north west of India as per the epic Mahabharata. An account in Mahabharata (Mbh 1:85) depicts Mlechchas as the descendants of Anu
