Introducing . . . The Americas Revealed website

Introducing  . . .  The Americas Revealed website


A new, non-commercial website that documents America’s extraordinary ancient past in language that people can understand.

Join us as a team of volunteers, led by a professional architect-planner, explore ancient ruins, mounds, town sites and petroglyphs in the Southeastern United States, plus as he looks back at the sites that he has explored in the past in Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, the Southwestern United States and the Midwest.  The format of The Americas Revealed is that of an architectural field report, designed to be understood by as many people as possible.  The site is in its infancy with the first four reports, but will be growing day by day, plus will soon include video programs on the major archaeological sites and the history of North America. 

You must subscribe to The Americas Revealed in order to be notified of new exploration reports!

We will continue to publish articles in the People of One Fire, which cover broader range of topics that Native Americans and Friends of Native Americans are interested in.  The primary differences between the two sites is that The Americas Revealed focuses on architecture, town sites, natural features and petroglyphs, plus has a uncluttered format, filled with colorful, three dimensional graphics that is typical of documents, produced by professional architects.

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.

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!

Richard Thornton . . . the truth is out there somewhere!
