Even Sugriva did not know of civilizations east of Andes!

Valmiki Ramayana preserves for us, descriptions of the world, as known to Sugriva during 12209 BCE.

Interestingly, while Sugriva knew a great deal of western part of South America (Chile, Peru) etc. he seems to be little aware of what was to the east of Andes.

The following clip talks of artifacts found during the last century, of civilization from modern Brazil, who left evidence of continuous inhabitation for at least 12000 years in antiquity, and oh, also of origins of modern TANGA, for at least 1000 years.
