The article, which will be published later this morning is possibly the most important that I have ever written.  It completely changes the orthodox understanding of the peopling of North America, Caribbean Basin and northern South America.  It relies on linguistics, but there is no way that the same key words could have existed on both sides of the North Atlantic Ocean without being carried by humans in large numbers.  These words are all shared between the indigenous peoples of eastern North America and the Early Bronze Age peoples of northwestern Europe . . . not from the Minoans, Phoenicians, Sumerians, Chinese, Egyptians, Romans or North Africans.  This information also changes the understanding of the Beaker Cordware (Ireland and Scandinavia), Deptford, Adena and Hopewell (Eastern North America) Cultures.

The Uchee stated that there were no humans living in the Lower Southeast, when they arrived, but the Algonquians were already well-established to the north of them.   However, the Uchee could see numerous shell rings and mounds, built by an unknown people, who had lived there before them.  This places the Uchee arrival after the abandonment of the shell rings around 1500 BC.

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.
