Recent geological and climatic studies have revealed that there was NEVER a clear passage from Siberia to the heartland of North America between around 25,000 BC and 10,000 BC. Archaeological digs in the past decade have revealed that the oldest Clovis points are along the Savannah River between South Carolina and Georgia. The same team from the University of South Carolina identified Pre-Clovis artifacts below the Clovis strata that radiocarbon dated to 15,000 BP and 50,000 BP. The last date is controversial because the stone artifacts look like the tools made by Homo Erectus, not modern humans. Stone...Read More

The lowest grade that I ever made in high school was a D in typing. The lowest grade I ever made in architecture was a D in Architectural Graphics – Water Color Rendering. This class involved the use of a branch of geometry now made obsolete by the computer. We were then taught how to paint that penciled image with water colors. It was a useless 3 hour class because very few architects did water color renderings once they were in the working world. Professional artists were hired to do such things . . . but the computer...Read More
Irish scientists identify reoccurring cosmic disaster that explains identical petroglyphs and stone circles in Ireland and Southeastern USA

Petroglyphs on the Forsyth Boulder, found next to the Upper Etowah River, are identical to Ireland’s oldest known petroglyphs! The petroglyphs at Carrowmore, Ireland are believed to date from around 3500 BC. Programs by Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTÉ), Ireland’s new international TV channel are now beginning to reach North America via Amazon Prime and PBS. The most ambitious of these documentaries, “Secrets of the Stones,” which was produced by RTE-Cork, Ireland, describes the current scientific studies of stone structures in Ireland dating from 6,000 BC to the Early Medieval Period. Technologies such as advanced tree ring dating, LIDAR,...Read More
There was a very interesting statement in the video program on the Pre-Classic Maya city of Izapa, produced by archaeologist Garth Norman. It stated that “bearded foreigners from southern Mexico migrated to Izapa, after the Olmec (actually Zoque) city of La Venta was abandoned.” The real Olmecs were Nahuatls, who migrated into southern Mexico about 1500 years after La Venta was abandoned. Now, who do we know that also wore mustaches and beards? The Itsate-speaking Creeks of the Altamaha, Oconee and Ocmulgee River Basins. Etymology Tamv, pronounced Tă : mäu, means “trade” in Totonac, Itza Maya and Itsate...Read More
Garth has been working on Maya city sites, especially Itzapa (or Izapa) for over 57 years. He is constantly searching for new information and understanding. He also toured the major Creek heritage sites in North Georgia, including the Nacoochee Valley. If you are Itsate (Hitchiti) Creek, Itzapa was your ultimate mother town. It is no accident that the Creek name for their provinces in the Southern Appalachian Mountains was Itzapa . . . Place of the Itza. Viewers will thoroughly enjoy this film. I will be producing true movie documentaries, similar in style to this one, once I...Read More
The Apalachicola People are the hybrid descendants of one of the most advanced indigenous civilizations north of Mexico. According to their migration legend, long ago, their ancestors landed in the vicinity of Savannah, GA after sailing from South America and mixed with the Uchee nearby then later with Muskogean immigrants. Although they gave their name to a major river in northwestern Florida, they did not move down into Florida until the mid-1700s. During the 1700s and early 1800s, their buildings were sheaved with vertical wooden planks. It is not clear how far back this architectural tradition reaches. An...Read More
It is very clear that Southeastern Native Americans, who exercise daily, plus avoid white wheat products and processed foods, will live longer, healthier lives. Make it a first priority to walk, hoe your garden, skate, bike, canoe or cross country ski every day of the year. What these studies are showing is that Native Americans, who don’t exercise regularly, die young. Extreme exercise is NOT good for your body. College and professional athletes, especially football, rugby, ice hockey and basketball players seem to die younger than expected . . . especially if they didn’t get into a regimen...Read More
Being subjected to endless warfare and/or the Trail of Tears altered the genetic makeup of Native Americans. One of the most astonishing discoveries made in 2017 and early 2018 was that environmental conditions or extreme emotional stress can almost instantaneously change the genetic functions of human beings. On the other hand, walking an hour a day increases your IQ and generally prevents the onset of senility in the elderly. Regular, moderate exercise changes the genetic sequencing of humans to make them more resistant to disease. Such traumas as wars, persecution, divorces and violent deaths of loved ones can...Read More
What do Colombia, Oklahoma, Pensacola, Savannah, Charleston, County Kerry and Scandinavia have in common? It rained all day, yesterday. Watch out! When I can’t go hiking or canoeing on a Sunday afternoon, you can expect big time trouble for the world of fossilized anthropology. In between packing (yes, I am moving!) I continued my research on the ancient history of Ireland. To do this, I bounce back and forth between documentaries on YouTube, Vicipéid na Gaeilge (Irish Wikipedia) and scholarly articles from Irish academicians. There were some extreme Oh My Gosh moments yesterday. For starters, the Shawnee,...Read More
Notice . . . the next article is a must read for all Arawaks, Shawnees, Uchees, Creeks, Cherokees and Catawbas
The article, which will be published later this morning is possibly the most important that I have ever written. It completely changes the orthodox understanding of the peopling of North America, Caribbean Basin and northern South America. It relies on linguistics, but there is no way that the same key words could have existed on both sides of the North Atlantic Ocean without being carried by humans in large numbers. These words are all shared between the indigenous peoples of eastern North America and the Early Bronze Age peoples of northwestern Europe . . . not from the...Read More

The Information World is changing!
People of One Fire needs your help to evolve with it.
We are now celebrating the 11th year of the People of One Fire. In that time, we have seen a radical change in the way people receive information. The magazine industry has almost died. Printed newspapers are on life support. Ezines, such as POOF, replaced printed books as the primary means to present new knowledge. Now the media is shifting to videos, animated films of ancient towns, Youtube and three dimensional holograph images.
During the past six years, a privately owned business has generously subsidized my research as I virtually traveled along the coast lines and rivers of the Southeast. That will end in December 2017. I desperately need to find a means to keep our research self-supporting with advertising from a broader range of viewers. Creation of animated architectural history films for POOF and a People of One Fire Youtube Channel appears to be the way. To do this I will need to acquire state-of-art software and video hardware, which I can not afford with my very limited income. Several of you know personally that I live a very modest lifestyle. If you can help with this endeavor, it will be greatly appreciated.
Richard Thornton . . . the truth is out there somewhere!
