PostScript: Putting the Egyptian-African thang to rest . . . finally
Here we go again. The internet, book stores and Youtube are being flooded by a wave of self-styled experts, who have never even been in Mesoamerica or Peru, but are claiming that people from Africa founded all the civilizations in the Americas and built the Muskogean mounds in the Southeast. Their initial statement is that since there are mummies and pyramids in Peru, Black Africans from Egypt obviously taught the Natives how to make mummies and build pyramids. They then say that the Olmec heads are obviously African. The proof that Africans built the Creek temple mounds is that Creeks wear turbans.
You see . . . the real name of the Muskogee Creek Indians is the Mosque Indians. However, the British tore down the mosques on top of their mounds, forced the Mosque Indians to convert to Christianity and made the Mosque Indians change their name to Muskogee. By the way oh exalted Islamic scholars, the actual Native American name of the Creek Indians is Mvskoke . . . not a whole lot like Mosque!
This time it is Middle Eastern mullahs putting caca in the heads African-American converts to Islam. Allah told them so, therefore it must be true. Thank God I don’t bow down to either boss hogg or allah! LOL They are both control freaks. Why does everyone want to steal our heritage? Is it because we are the only people left, who are not zombies under someone’s control?
Okay here are the facts . . .
Olmec Kornfuzion: The people of the Olmec Civilization (1,400 BC – 400 BC) did not call themselves Olmecs. Their descendants, the Zoque, live in southern Vera Cruz and Tabasco today and look just like the people in the “Olmec statues.” They have been genetically tested and don’t have a bit of African DNA.
Mummy Dearest: The people on the coast of Peru mummified all their dead at least as early as 6,000 BC, possibly 7,000 BC. The oldest known Egyptian mummy dates from 3,400 BC.
ERGO: Peruvians invented mummification and taught it to the Egyptians.
Pyramid Scheme: The oldest Egyptian pyramid, the Pyramid of Djoser, dates from around 2,600 BC. The twin Pyramids of Caral, Peru date from exactly the same time. However, there are small pyramids at Bandurria, Peru, which date from around 4,000 BC.
ERGO: Peruvians invented pyramids and taught it to the Egyptians.
Mound Game: The oldest standing structure in North America is the Bilbo Mound in Savannah, GA and it dates from 3,545 BC. The oldest standing structure in Africa is the Pyramid of Djoser, which dates to about 2,600 BC.
ERGO: Georgia Natives invented structures and taught the backward Africans how to build.
Turbans: Some of the oldest Peruvian mummies are wearing turbans.
ERGO: Peruvians taught the Creeks how to wear turbans, who in turn traveled to the Middle East taught the locals how to wear turbans.

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.
