Diego Andrés Rocha, Tratado vnico, y singular del origen de los indios occidentales del Piru, Mexico, Santa Fè, y Chile. Lima, 1681.


Diego Andres Rocha, who studied law at the University of San Marcos in Lima and spent his career as a judicial official in Lima and Quito, was one of a number of authors who speculated on the ancient origins of Native Americans. In this treatise he argued, based on linguistic and other evidence, that Mexican Indians were descended from the Lost Tribes of Israel, while Peruvian Indians were descended from ancient Iberians who crossed the Atlantic in the time of Tubal, grandson of Noah.
