Actually, I have carefully and quite thoroughly researched the matter of Khandu's ancestors and how they came to this fair land.
Amos is correct as far as he goes, which, as is usual for someone from Southern California, is no where nearly far enough. As his g'g'grandfather stood on the dock in Barcelona he was approached by a Certain Lady Of The Evening who offered him a Certain Preposition. Thinking that he'd just "gotten lucky" he accepted and after the exchange of the negotiated sum of golden piasters, was handed a deed of ownership for the preposition "wiikaa". Knowing that this was Ojibwemowin for "seldom" he took himself to America so that he could collect a royalty for each time the word was used.
The rest is history.
