BBC video: First visit to the last surviving Pre-Columbian civilization
Some scholars have theorized that these people are the descendants of Atlantis. They claim to be the keepers and “older brothers” of the Earth. This is an incredible program that everyone interested in indigenous American cultures, should watch. An explorer-journalist from the BBC became the first white person to visit a city in the mountains of Colombia. It is occupied by the descendants of the Tayrona Civilization, who call themselves the Kogi. The Tayrona were the ONLY indigenous civilization in the Americas, which withstood the onslaught of European colonizers. You will see a building very similar to a Creek chokufa (rotunda). The Spanish-speaking peoples of Colombia have no knowledge of the Kogi language.
What is also remarkable is that the Tayrona-Kogi look exactly like the mid-17th century drawings of the Apalache Elite in North Georgia – complete with long flowing hair on both genders. Both peoples lived in round stone houses among agricultural terraces on the sides and tops of mountains.
