    The Aryans were a barbaric tribe from around present-day Russia. They were tall, light-skinned and loved war. About 1200 B.C., they invaded India and later conquerred it (I'm not sure what you really mean by the direction they migrated through the Indus River civilization, I'm guessing southward?). Their holy books, the Vedas, were used in founding Hinduism.

    I only know that the aryans affected the Hinduism religion, and are probably the ones that gave it its name seeing as Hindu= across the Indus river.
