Musical entertainment from your ancient homelands in Peru and Scotland.

Musical entertainment from your ancient homelands in Peru and Scotland.


The indigenous peoples, encountered by the 16th century European explorers in the present day Southeastern United States were NOT full-blooded Asiatic peoples, who originated in northeastern Siberia. Their hybrid ancestry was partially from Siberia, but not entirely.   The Uchee, Mvskoke,  Southern Siouan and Panoan languages show strong influence from pre-Indo-European languages in Northwest Europe.  Most of the petroglyphs in the Georgia Gold Belt can be found in the gold-bearing region of southwest Ireland and in southern Scandinavian.  Several glyphs that first appeared in Sweden around 2000 BC can be found on the Track Rock Petroglyphic Boulders near Blairsville, GA . . . which is also in the Gold Belt.  The Panoan languages of Peru carry some basic words, which are still root words in the Scandinavian and English languages today.

Well, let’s put it this way,  the Mvskoke word for water, ueis the same word as used for water among the Pre-Gallic peoples on the Atlantic Coast of France.  That couldn’t be an accident.   The name of the Uchee People is pronounced the same as the Pre-Gaelic word for water in Ireland.   The Itsate Creeks alternatively labeled the Uchee, the Okv-te or Water People.

I was writing a straightforward article on the subject, when I came down with a very nasty infection carried by mites and fleas on wild rodents, such as the Wood Rat.  I am having to sleep a lot now and just don’t feel like writing.  In the meantime, POOF is providing you some musical entertainment so you won’t be to angry.



The following two tabs change content below.
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.



    Sorry you’re unwell….. The groundhog told me to lay low and only come out when it felt right! Take care of yourself.


    Richard, GOD Bless!! Time to nuke those rats… Call the exterminator and get some pet snakes.

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.
