Irish archaeologists find 5,500 year old tomb, plus petroglyphs that are identical to the those in the Georgia Gold Belt!

  This is a fascinating article, sent to us by Jesse Townsley.    I have no clue what was going on back then, but it is obvious that there were cultural changes across the Atlantic.  Of course, the Irish archaeologists are not aware that their petroglyphs are identical the those in the Etowah River Basin of Georgia . . . which is in the Gold Belt.  To read this article, go to:...

Meditations on the Swedish Connection, while nailing siding

  People of One Fire researchers have a long way to go in understanding the events of 3000 years ago! I am now living in the land of the Soque and Alekmani.  It has a rugged landscape composed of modest mountains,  ancient extinct volcanic cones and extremely fertile river and creek valleys.   The Soque (or Zoque ~ pronounced Zjhö : kē) were the descendants of the elite of the Olmec Civilization and the ancestors of the Miccosukee Tribe in Florida.  The Alekmani had a pure Gamla (Archaic) Swedish name meaning “Medicine Men or People.”  So what drew them to...

Killer deer reek havoc in former Muskogee-Creek heartland

  Innocent people are walking their innocent dogs then being stalked and attacked by bloodthirsty deer! Peachtree City has become one of the most successful planned newtowns in the United States. It currently occupies 25.3 square miles and has a population of over 35,000.  Development started several years before a master plan was created for the town by Richard P. Browne Associates of Columbia, MD in the early 1970s.   POOF’s editor designed its original path system, shortly after returning from Sweden, where he designed a pedestrian community, linked by pedestrian-bike paths. The early residents of PTC were so proud...

How to make a Southeastern indigenous flute from river cane

The Creek flute was identical to the quena of South America and different from the Western Plains flute, which has a separate reed. One of the biggest surprises during the past 15 years of my research into the Southeast’s past, was the rich musical tradition of the Southeastern indigenous peoples at the time of initial contact with French, Spanish and English explorers.  The chroniclers of the De Soto Expedition stated that the orchestra, which accompanied the leader of Kvse (Kusa~Coosa) played at least 32 different wind and percussion instruments.   The Great American Disease Holocaust, the Native American slave trade, ...

People of One Fire acquires PhotoMirage software to animate photos

  Your donations have made possible the acquisition of the new PhotoMirage Software from Corel.   It will enable me to bring single photos and virtual reality images to life.   This is not the same as the Atlantis software, which converts entire CADD computer models of towns into animated films, but is much less expensive.   PhotoMirage will be used to create short animated documentaries on YouTube, Google and our own website. Here is a promotional video for PhotoMirage:...

There is a very good reason why we fought the American Revolution

  In recent years, there has been a string of documentaries on television along both sides of the Atlantic, which portrayed the American Revolution as an unnecessary war, fomented by a hothead minority,  who fanned very reasonable policies by the British Crown into raging political issues.  Standard history texts tell students that it wasn’t really an revolution, but rather a war for independence, since our society remained the same afterward.  The states had the same representative government as the colonies. . .  only their parliaments were now close to home.  I have been doing some legal reading in preparation...

Massive oval temple mound identified in Georgia’s Nacoochee Valley

  The archaeological site is also linked to the fate of the last Roanoke Island Colony in North Carolina. It appears to be the large sculptured hill, dedicated to the Apalache sun goddess, which was visited by Richard Briggstock in 1653. This goddess had all the traits of the Hebrew YWYW, except that she was female.   The sun was considered her special creation, not the goddess itself.  Briggstock told his story to the Rev. Charles de Rochefort,  Chaplain to French and Scottish Protestants in the Caribbean Basin.  De Rochefort forwarded Briggstock’s crude sketches to a printer and engraver in...

Video on traditional Mayan cuisine in Quintana Roo

  Nowadays, tourists have to pay to visit “eco-villages” in order to see real Maya culture Long time POOF subscriber,  Glenn Patent,  sent us this interesting video, which shows several of the traditional foods of northern Yucatan being grown and prepared for the edification of tourists.    The host of the show is rather California-ish . . . that’s about the same level of cultural ignorance as Yankee-ish . . . but with a stupid grin on their face all the time.   However, the actual description of traditional Maya culture in this eco-village is pretty accurate.  Quintana Roo is a...

Owners of Eleanor Dare Site invite Richard Thornton to study it

  A lifelong resident of the Nacoochee Valley informed me this morning that he remembers the Maya ballcourt in Sautee, GA, but also remembers seeing stone wall terraces and the ruins of stone walls with window slots on the slopes leading up to the Kenimer Mound in the Nacoochee Valley.  Both he and a long time subscriber of POOF, Silvia Wilson, remember seeing the ruins of a stone temple on top of the Kenimer Mound.  During the 1970s, a newcomer to the Valley knocked over the temple walls and hauled the stones to his lot, where he used them...

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.
