New Facebook site for Uchee descendants

New Facebook site for Uchee descendants

 

People of One Fire has just been notified that a Facebook account for Uchee descendants has just become operational.  This website is not oriented to any particular Uchee tribe, but has been created as a growing repository for factual information about the Uchee People.  It is also hoped that the Facebook account will enable Uchee descendants from around North America to make contact with each other. 

Alternative names for the Uchee are Euchee, Yuchi, Yuchee, Utsi and Tsoyaha.   The word Uchee was used exclusively by colonial and early state officials in the Southeast.

The name of the account is:  Uchee Ancestors – People from the Home of the Sun

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.

      Personally, I do not have a Facebook account in order to avoid hate mail and some degenerate “law enforcement personnel,” pretending to be little boys, little girls, teenage girls, teenage boys and elderly women, willing to pay for attention. LOL
