Seventh Anniversary Special
The Indigenous Peoples of the Southeastern United States
National Native American Heritage Month
Attached is the Special Seventh Anniversary Issue of the People of One Fire. Unfortunately, we had to save the Adobe PDF file at a low resolution in order to prevent the email attachment from being blocked by university server computers.
There is a BIG difference in the architectural graphics when a Press Quality PDF file is created. The high resolution version will be available for download from Lulu.com by tomorrow morning . . . if you want to see the graphics at their best.
Please note that advertising in good taste will now accompany many People of One Fire publications and web pages. Judy White and I have been working for free for the past seven years. The advertising will make it possible to justify greater sophistication in future publications.

Richard Thornton is a professional architect, city planner, author and museum exhibit designer-builder. He is today considered one of the nation’s leading experts on the Southeastern Indians. However, that was not always the case. While at Georgia Tech Richard was the first winner of the Barrett Fellowship, which enabled him to study Mesoamerican architecture and culture in Mexico under the auspices of the Institutio Nacional de Antropoligia e Historia. Dr. Roman Piňa-Chan, the famous archaeologist and director of the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, was his fellowship coordinator. For decades afterward, he lectured at universities and professional societies around the Southeast on Mesoamerican architecture, while knowing very little about his own Creek heritage. Then he was hired to carry out projects for the Muscogee-Creek Nation in Oklahoma. The rest is history.Richard is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the KVWETV (Coweta) Creek Tribe and a member of the Perdido Bay Creek Tribe. In 2009 he was the architect for Oklahoma’s Trail of Tears Memorial at Council Oak Park in Tulsa. He is the president of the Apalache Foundation, which is sponsoring research into the advanced indigenous societies of the Lower Southeast.
