Video: Fifth anniversary of the filming of “Mayas In Georgia”

  Today marks the fifth anniversary of the initial filming of the premier of “America Unearthed” in Mexico,  several locations in the State of Georgia and in Minnesota.   Where have the years gone?  . . .  and  . . . Oh my!   How much more have we learned about the real history of the Americas since then. At the time, we thought that the Track Rock Terrace Complex was unique in North America.  Since then, we have identified 16 terrace complexes in Georgia, NW South Carolina and East Central Alabama.  Recently, thousands of stone ruins have been discovered in...

Did Uchee traders from Georgia establish colonies in Cuba?

  For the 2017 Green Corn Festival,  People of One Fire featured translations of texts from a Cuban anthropological textbook and archaeology magazine.  The information contained in those documents were astounding because they explained several mysteries that have confounded North American academicians for over two centuries.  They describe an aquatic expressway beginning around 6,000 BC or earlier, which stretched from Savannah, GA to Cartagena, Colombia.   Along this route, people, ideas and plant seeds moved in both directions. None of the Cuban anthropological texts made reference to the Uchee People of the Southeastern United States, but the villages that Cuban...

Map: South American and Caribbean Peoples in the Southeast (1540 AD)

  Readers will probably notice that I labeled the Florida Apalachee . . .  Southern Arawaks.  In 1658,  French ethnographer, Charles de Rochefort, stated that the Apalache of North Georgia established a colony among the people in the Florida Panhandle, but that the people in that region did not call themselves Apalachee and they were Southern Arawaks from Peru.  He said that the Spanish had given these people the name, without asking them what they called themselves!   Indeed, all but one of the Florida “Apalachee” towns have Southern Arawak names . . . including their capital.   The one exception...

Baracoa, Guantanamo . . . the Cuban Connection

  For the past 8,000 years, there have been extensive movements of peoples, cultural innovations and ultimately cultivated plants, back and forth across an aquatic expressway, which linked southeastern North America with northwestern South America.  Indeed, the indigenous peoples of the southern half of the Southeastern United States can best described as extensions of South American and Mesoamerican cultures, rather than being associated with the traditions and DNA of the remainder of North America.  This is a long article, but you wont’ get any of this information anywhere in the United States, except maybe Miami.     In 2007,...

Cuban archaeologists have documented extensive movements of peoples back and forth between the Southeast and Mesoamerica

Preview to the Pokesta 2017 featured article Baracoa, Guantanamo  . . .  the Cuban Connection Baracoa in Arawak means the same as Apalache in Creek! It has been long documented that over 55,000 years ago, the ancestors of the Australian aborigines paddled across dangerous stretches of ocean as much as 300 miles wide to reach Australia.   Yet, here in the United States anthropologists pretend that the 90 miles between the Florida Keys and Cuba were an insurmountable barrier to the movement of people.  Their orthodox description of the Southeastern United States past had no explanation of how several South...

Advice to young wives from Uncle Mountain Lion

Ask Bubba Mountain Lion A new feature of the People of One Fire Dear Uncle Mountain Lion, You know the fact that Creek women have to be the boss, wherever they are, is a terrible burden on my generation.   It was bad enough when we had to be the queen of the house and own all the real estate.  Now I have to keep the silly white teachers at school in line.  They either are lazy bubble heads, stoned most of the time on pot . . . sexual perverts, who like preadolescent boys  . . . or just...

The mind-boggling meanings of Yama, Yamasee, Yamacraw and Yamacutah

  Folks . . . this one is going to end up being really bizarre . . . but I just follow the evidence, wherever it leads me.   The Yamasee Confederacy was a late 17th century/early 18th century alliance of remnant peoples in the South Atlantic Coastal Plain . . .  mostly in the Georgia portion.  Southeastern anthropologists and historians periodically hold academic conferences on the Yamasee . . . without one of the self-described experts on the subject ever bothering to research the meaning of Yamasee.  If the academicians even knew a tidbit about the indigenous languages...

South Georgia Creek lassie wins Miss Georgia pageant!

All the Beasily’s in the Muscogee-Creek Nation of Oklahoma can take pride that one of their cousins, whose ancestors figured out a way to avoid federal troops, is now a real Creek Princess.  Alyssa Beasily, a 19-year-old Kennesaw State University student, was named last night the new Miss Georgia. She is much more than a pretty picture.  Alyssa is an excellent student and spends an astounding amount of her free time, helping the unfortunate.   They say that if compassionate soul is the prime quality for measuring excellence,  she is a shoe-in for Miss...
