Native American Legends and DNA
The legend of the ruby-eyed serpent idol
Native American legends cannot normally be accepted as completely factual history. Too many mouths have passed these stories from generation to generation. However, a Cherokee legend and the “Migration Legend of the Creek Indians” provide important information that can assist researchers in a particularly controversial archaeological site.
DNA scientists claim that Cherokees are from the Middle East
DNA Consulting Inc. is near completion of a comprehensive genetic study of the North Carolina Cherokee Reservation. The project’s original goal was to finally create a DNA test marker for the Cherokees. However, its shocking conclusion is that the Cherokees are a Middle Eastern – North African population. Their primary ancestors were the Iberian Sephardic Jews, who colonized the Southern Highlands in the 1600s.

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.
