This far in now and seeing how Asgardians influenced the Scandanavian peoples and Gou'alds became the embodiement of the Egyptian gods along with others like Babylon, Caananites, Hu is an Asian god then(?) and I think I recall a mention of Aztec or Mayan at one point right?
There are a couple of Central American mentions. Zipacna (Klorel's attorney) bears the name of a Mayan deity. Hathor was Egyptian but was found in a sarcophagus in a Mayan temple, having apparently ruled there for a while after getting kicked out of Egypt. One wonders what kind of history she shares with Zipacna.

The Giant Alien from "Crystal Skull" is Quetzalcoatl, an Aztec deity. We don't know much about him, but he's obviously anti-Goa'uld. Interestingly, all this suggests that the Mayans were directly influenced by the Goa'uld and the Aztecs were not (unless the Goa'uld took over the Aztecs after somehow getting rid of Q).
