People of One Fire Youtube Channel is now operational!


Sorry for making you folks wait so long, but Microsoft released the “Professional Level” PowerPoint 2018 software before working out all the bugs.  It took 19 recording sessions of the first part of our series on the Petroglyphs of North Georgia for the artificial intelligence in my business computer to fix the bugs.  Part One is on line.  Parts Two – Four will be quickly posted during the next two days.   I will be using more and more of the bells and whistles of this software as we go along, but one has to crawl before one walks!

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.



    Great job Richard !

    • Thank you! The next ones will be better. I had to really burn the midnight oil to get the software working right. The program has the capability to be a frame for multiple video films. When I start doing that, the shows will become more visually stimulating.


        And I love hearing the correct pronunciation of people, places and tribes!


    Richard, Great work!! Clearly you are on the right path about the same peoples inhabiting locations in Europe and the Eastern U.S for the Copper / Bronze age. Same earth works, same symbols and some same basic word/ sound connections along with the DNA data should be enough to convince many people.
    That being said the map of 1701 includes the word “Chiraches” in eastern Tennessee perhaps a early form of the word other Native people would call the “Cherokee”. The “Togha” peoples later called “Tokah” living close by on the little Tennessee. The Yuche / Euchee people should have lore about the “Duhare” people living in Western North Carolina in the 1500’s as they close by to them as well? In any case the history books will have to be rewritten about the many peoples that migrated to the South East.


    Great job Richard! Thank you for all you do to bring the facts to light!


    Great job, Richard. Onward now to view the next one!!!

    Thanks for perservering,… again!

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.

Richard Thornton . . . the truth is out there somewhere!
