Sea Peoples: east of Malaya: Bajau/Sama/Sinama of So. China/Sulu Sea[~ Tihama of Red Sea]
Before splitting, Moken = Bajau, so called Mboakja/Mbuatlya, + Shams(sun) seek = Xambuatlya
Xambuatlaya = Chaldyatl or Atlacatl?
Moken x Bajau = Mboakja (B/Paekje(Korean founders of Japan = Yayoi), Boati, XyaMbuatl [Xyam = sunbowl/solar disk/bark eg Shamash/Shams sun symbol of justice/balance/ballast] Bajau Laut: the ancestors (mag’mbo’) cf ebu gogo(Flores) abu/ibu/ebu(Malay) Sama/Sinam = Bajau/Badjao(east of borneo, Philippines, Sulawesi in Sulu Sea) ~ Moken(west of Malaya in Andaman Sea) Tribes of sea going Austronesian people, living in houseboats or in stilt houses along shores around island South East Asia...

Returning to the land you were born would make sense along the lines that it is the place where your placenta was disposed of.

Tail-holding propulsion

"This is a film of a girl raised by bushmen, showing her toying with wild lions and cheetahs." Heather Sweet at AAT


Yes, I have conjectured that early H sapiens used the islanded Phu Quoc ridgeback dog (derived from the Asian wolf) to pull their bowl boat coracles in water too deep for their punt poles, first by holding the tail, later by yoking them with a leash attached to a pole in the same manner as deer/horses etc. were restrained as part of hunt-herd pre-domestication (see photos in previous post).
