News! Huns were led by Paracusa elite!

News!   Huns were led by Paracusa elite!


Mankind’s past is getting more and more complex.   Earlier this year, it was proven genetically that the Paracusa (Paracas in Spanish) of Peru originated in the southeastern corner of Europe near the Crimean Peninsula.  During the past few years, forensic scientists, geneticists and anthropologists in Hungary and southern Germany have been studying the skeletons of Huns, who were buried there during the 400s AD, after the main body of their nomadic nation had settled on the plains of Eastern Hungary.  The king of the Huns gave 500 young Hun elite women to some kings in southern Germany.  Those women’s graves have been identified.

As can be seen above, the skeletons of the warriors excavated in Hungary proved to be descended from the peoples of Central Asia, probably Tajikistan.  They carried a mixture of Asiatic and Caucasian genes.  The big surprise came when DNA samples of the Hun elite.  These people were from the southeastern corner of Europe, near Crimea.  For some time, it has been known that the Hun elite had bottle shaped, oversized heads.  This was assumed to be from wrapping cloth tightly around the heads of babies.  However, this was also the standard explanation for the Paracusa skulls in Peru,  until genetic analysis revealed the the Paracus were a separate race of men.  Like most of the later Paracusa in Peru, the Hun elite were hybrid Paracusa-Caucasian.  Most carried the gene, which causes blue or gray eyes.  Their hair color varied, but their skin had little pigmentation like Nordic people today.

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.



    Howdy, Ran across an unknown for Monte Alto Culture in Guatemala. Just a line in case you do not have it on your radar.


    Hi Richard, I find all of the intertwining amazing. I have read several articles on the Huns and others of the region. Some info states that some nomadic tribes had blond hair and were extremely tall. This was a good Public Library of Science article about Migrating Huns and Modified heads in Hungry and Georgia during the early migration period. PLos One. 2017;12/(2)

    • Uchee and Yuchi (Tennessee frontier version) are Anglicizations of the actual word, which is Ue-si, meaning “Water-offspring of.” The Creeks, like most peoples from southern Mexico had several “S” sounds, the most common was “sh”. For example, the Creek word for bear is written nokose, but pronounced, no-ko-she.


        No proof and you know way, way more than me. But I do find it very interesting that some Sami are related to Pazyryk (blonde, fair skin) who are Scythian. A tribe of Scythians of more Turkish/Asiatic descent was the Yue-Chi.

        A theory: the Sami are Scythians, the Scythians were multi-ethnic, and some group of multi-ethnic Scythians made it to British Isles, Americas. As I understand it, Creek has some Greek and the Scythians spoke Bactarian Greek.

        • That the Sami were related to the Scynthians is quite possible. However, they were building stone shrines in Scandinavia and NW Russia by 2500 BC. Their DNA shows up as a mixture Basque, Finnish and western Siberian.


    Richard, Seems to make sense that the origin area of the Paracusa would had some contact with the Huns. The Goths/Visigoths were pushed East by the Huns and its likely the Paracusa were living among the peoples of the Black Sea area for a long time before the arrival of the Huns. The Paracusa were most likely still knowing the Sea route from the Black Sea to the Azores and then to the Ancient Sea port of Georgia. Tokharian script might have led to the Georgian script (4th century) because of the warlike Huns which somehow arrived in a cave in Kentucky?


    Hello Richard,

    Would like to talk about this further by email. I am the artist that reconstructed the Paracas elite you have posted.

    Thank you, Marcia

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.
