A Letter from Quebec

These Native American letters we feel are worth sharing and wondering if this is happening to others.

This letter was writing to a out-of-town traditional dancer met in a Pow Wow this summer (2012), to finish a conversation we had during dinnertime:

Track Rock Archaeological Zone

What is going on at Track Rock Gap? During the year since this enormous archaeological zone was first publicized, POOF has added hundreds of new subscribers. We will give all of you an overview about what is now known about the site and what isn’t known. Genetic and linguistic studies carried out in 2012 suggest that there are at least some Creek, Cherokee, Seminole, Miccosukee and Koasati Indians today, who are the descendants of the builders of the Track Rock Terraces or its satellite towns in the Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee Mountains.

Patterns of Vegetation Cover affects Precipitation

Ben Cook (NASA Goddard Space Flight Center) and colleagues used a high-resolution climate model developed at GISS to run simulations that compared how patterns of vegetation cover during pre-Columbian (before 1492 C.E.) and post-Columbian periods affected precipitation and drought in Central America. The pre-Columbian era saw widespread deforestation on the Yucatán Peninsula and throughout southern and central Mexico. During the post-Columbian period, forests regenerated as native populations declined and farmlands and pastures were abandoned.

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.
