Eastern Band of Cherokees being investigated by FBI . . . 7 arrests already made!

Eastern Band of Cherokees being investigated by FBI . . . 7 arrests already made!

 

The initial arrests involve violation of immigration laws by tribal officials. As readers learned in previous POOF articles, the recent arrests are just the tip of the iceberg . . .  as they say.   To learn more, go to:   Corruption in the North Carolina Mountains

 

Never, ever, mess with the Creek Wind Clan.

Sooner or later, there will be consequences.

Richard Thornton is a professional architect, city planner, author and museum exhibit designer-builder. He is today considered one of the nation’s leading experts on the Southeastern Indians. However, that was not always the case. While at Georgia Tech Richard was the first winner of the Barrett Fellowship, which enabled him to study Mesoamerican architecture and culture in Mexico under the auspices of the Institutio Nacional de Antropoligia e Historia. Dr. Roman Piňa-Chan, the famous archaeologist and director of the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, was his fellowship coordinator. For decades afterward, he lectured at universities and professional societies around the Southeast on Mesoamerican architecture, while knowing very little about his own Creek heritage. Then he was hired to carry out projects for the Muscogee-Creek Nation in Oklahoma. The rest is history. Richard is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the KVWETV (Coweta) Creek Tribe and a member of the Perdido Bay Creek Tribe. In 2009 he was the architect for Oklahoma’s Trail of Tears Memorial at Council Oak Park in Tulsa. He is the president of the Apalache Foundation, which is sponsoring research into the advanced indigenous societies of the Lower Southeast.

    When I set up as a vendor at the Red Clay Pow Wow 2 years ago, I noticed that most of the leaders looked like Mexicans and most of the rest of us “redskins” looked White. I wonder if that is the reason the Eastern Band leaders don’t want to participate in DNA testing? My g-grand parents were on the Dawes Roll, but they didn’t join the Trail of Crying and my parents didn’t join the Eastern Band and I didn’t join, so I guess I “ain’t” one of them. lol Sounds like that is a good thing.

    • Creeks look like taller versions of the indigenous peoples of Southern Mexico, but Cherokees, even if they have some features that seem indigenous have Middle Eastern skulls.

    A couple of those names appear to be Eastern European…
    Huh, Interesting…
    Thanks for the good news

    • Let’s see . . . what countries are in Eastern Europe? Could it be the same countries, who were sending 1200+ people each year to Western North Carolina and Gatlinburg with fake passports and bogus student visas?

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.

Support Us!
