I kind of thought the avatar was a hoot. Shoot me if I'm wrong.

I don't have the energy to do it tonight (provide the lusted-after "sources"), but Harvard University historian Walter Johnson in his 2013 work, River of Dark Dreams, addresses the South America issue and shows that it was not a unifying thing in the South.
