Say NO to a Cherokee Casino in Helen, Georgia!

Say NO to a Cherokee Casino in Helen, Georgia!

 

Sequoyah probably never saw the Sequoyah-Cherokee Syllabary and Tsali was a Uchee, executed by a Cherokee firing squad.

Again and again, when researching the origin of fake Southeastern Native American history, once comes to a point when a Caucasian academician or novelist made up a story and it somehow became historical facts.  It is very easy nowadays with the internet to fact check these myths.  In most cases, they became “historical facts” after being retold in James Mooney’s, “Myths of the Cherokees” or some folklore book in the portions of Alabama or Georgia, where the Creeks last lived.  Folks there is a real good reason, why Mooney’s book is called “MYTHS!”

During the past three weeks, there has reappeared a series of sarcastic comments from newcomers to the website, like what we got during the “Maya Myth-busting in the Mountains” period in 2012.   I traced them all to either academicians or museums that have received grants from the Eastern Band of Cherokees.  The ECB is at it again . . . trying to build a gambling casino in Helen, Georgia.  Having cohabited with the Russian Mafia so long, the ECB automatically shifts to bribery and bullying, when it can’t get its way.  To  the over 10 million Georgians, opposed to any casino coming into their mountains, here are some historical facts that you might find interesting. 

If you recall, just as I was moving here to the Nacoochee Valley, I was the victim of grossly unprofessional conduct, probably illegal, by the White County and Habersham County Sheriff’s Departments.  My phone was tapped with the excuse that I was a male prostitute, drug dealer, might not pay my business license when I moved here (I have not practiced architecture since 2009!) and lord knows what else. At least three former girl friends, plus a neighborhood friend, who rode the bus with me in high school, are subscribers to POOF.  I am sure at this point, they, especially Julie from Sumatra, are rolling in the floor laughing.   Jo Evelyn Kelly used to call me “the Beaver” because I was such a “Boy Scout, ”  She thought that I looked like the star in the popular TV series, “Leave It to Beaver.”

With the help of my good friends in the Latin American community, I have been able to trace this naughty behavior to prominent businessmen in these counties, who are heavily capitalized by laundered drug money from organized crime.  The big time Gringo drug dealers are not touched by Georgia law enforcement, while the Latin Americans they recruit to do the selling, are getting stiff prison sentences.   These corrupt businessmen are heavy contributors to the campaign funds of the sheriffs, district attorneys, local magistrates and judges. The local magistrates are the ones, who issue wiretapping warrants.  In Georgia, any money not spent on a political campaign can be kept as personal income.   One of the businessmen in Cleveland, GA is actively involved in pulling strings with local legislators to get a special bill passed, authorizing a Cherokee gambling casino in Helen.  His close relatives openly brag of periodically being directed to certain slot machines at the two Cherokee casinos, where they will win $2500 or more, while nobody else at the slots is winning over a dollar or so.

Many, many Georgians were astounded that the Blairsville-Union County Chamber of Commerce and Georgia Tourism Division didn’t take advantage of the international publicity about the Track Rock Terrace Complex and Ocmulgee National Monument on the evening of December 21, 2012.  It has become one of the most watched History Channel programs ever.  A promotional campaign could have brought in millions of dollars of international tourist and outdoor recreation income to the Northeast Georgia Mountains and Macon Areas.  Who are Georgia’s tourism promotion people really working for?

Turns out that the ECB paid that Chamber of Commerce $1000 that year, plus provided free perks for the Chamber of Commerce executives at the Cherokee Casino Hotel.  The ECB has also been contributing to Georgia political campaigns for some time.

Cherokee Myth-Busting in the Georgia Mountains

During the past year, readership on the People of One Fire website has exploded so many of you have not read articles dating to our earlier avenues of research.  So we are going to summarize three past articles on Nancy Ward, Sequoyah and Tsali.  These are three real people, who are heavily emphasized in Cherokee histories and the “Unto These Hills”  outdoor drama.   You will be shocked at how their lives have been distorted by the fictionalized history that our children read in textbooks today.

Nancy Ward:  According to all Cherokee histories and a musical, currently touring the nation,  in the fall of 1754 at age 16 Nancy led 800 Cherokee warriors to a resounding victory over 2000 Creek warriors on the Etowah River and thus won all of North Georgia for the brave Cherokees.   Late 20th century Georgia historians embellished the story further to make it sound like the Cherokees were good Christian Injuns waging war on the godless, bloodthirsty, heathen Creeks.  Actually, it was an opposite situation.  Traditional Cherokee religion is based on the conjuring of demons in fires.  That is why Cherokee conjurers are called Cherokee conjurers.  Creeks have always been monotheistic, but now about 90% are Christians.

There are some major problems with this myth, starting with the fact that Cherokees lost a third of their villages in the fall of 1754 to an invading army from Coweta and  surrendered to the Coweta Creeks in December 1754.  John Mitchell’s famous 1755 Map of North America has in bold letters, “Desserted Cherakee Settlements” across a broad swath of western North Carolina and Northeast Georgia.

There is no evidence that Nancy Ward was ever in the State of Georgia or ever fought in a battle.  There was no mention anywhere about a Battle of Taliwa until four years after the famous Cherokee, Nancy Ward, died.  This was determined by a team of University of Oklahoma professors in 2008, after a thorough review of Colonial Archives in Georgia and South Carolina. 

If you trace back the citations in the Wikipedia article on Nancy, you discover that most the “facts” listed start when a white cousin of hers wrote a mostly fictional “dime” novel about her life, four years after she was buried.  Nancy was actually born in 1761, about six years AFTER the fictional Battle of Taliwa.  Her first lover, Kingfisher, a prominent Cherokee war leader, died in the Battle of Etowah Cliffs (Hightower) at Rome, GA on October 17, 1793 not in the fictional 1755 Battle of Taliwa. . .  but by that time, Nancy was living with a white man.  It was a catastrophic defeat for the Cherokees, which ended the last war that they ever fought against whites.  Nancy, who was more Caucasian than Cherokee DID warn white settlers of a pending Chickamauga Cherokee attack and WAS one of the first slave owners in the Cherokee Nation.  She promoted slavery of African Americans to other Cherokees as a means to make the Cherokees more acceptable to whites.

Sequoyah:  Most of what you read about the Cherokee scholar, Sequoyah, is fictionalized history, created by whites after his death.  Much of his life remains a mystery.   We do know for a fact that in 1825 the Cherokee National Council presented a silver medal to George Gist that states in English that “he invented the Cherokee alphabet.”   George Gist preferred to go by the name often called his mother, Sequoyah.  Her real name was Wutah, which means “witch” in Gullah, Geechee and the West African languages.  She was most likely the mixed blood slave-mistress of a white man, named Gist, who owned a trading post in the Cherokee village of Tuskegi. Almost all Indian traders put their African slaves or Native American “extra wives” in charge of local trading posts.  Sequoyah has no meaning in Cherokee, but is the Cherokee-nization of the Creek word Sekuya, which means “slave” or “war captive.” 

Someone in the late 20th century added the myth that Sequoyah fought with the Cherokee company in the Creek Redstick War.   The National Park Service recently carried out an exhaustive research project to obtain all names of Cherokees, who fought in the Red Stick War for the United States so they could put up a bronze plague in their honor at Horseshoe Bend.  There is no name on the list remotely resembling Gist or Sequoyah. 

On the other hand, Major Ridge, a leader of the Chickamauga Cherokees, did list Sequoyah as one of the hostile Cherokees, including Charles Hicks, who fled the Etowah Cliffs battlefield with him, when they saw the rest of their army being wiped out.  They took refuge with is sister in Pine Log.  Sequoyah lived in the Pine Log village in northern Bartow County, GA for several years until he was certain that there would be no retribution for him being a Chickamauga Cherokee.

Much of the real history of Sequoyah can be found in the book, Cherokee Tragedy: The Ridge Family and the Decimation of a People. (1989) At some point in the early 1820s,  Sequoyah and his wife were abducted by North Carolina Cherokees and tried for witchcraft.  This makes his mother’s real name and heritage very significant.   They were sentenced to being slowly tortured to death.  The North Carolina Cherokees had nearly killed his wife, cut off Sequoyah’s ears and some fingers, plus broken his leg . . . when his good friend, John Ridge, showed up with a troop of Georgia Cherokee Lighthorse and escorted the couple back to Georgia.   His wife apparently soon died thereafter. As soon as he healed, Sequoyah fled to Arkansas.    The man portrayed in the famous painting of Sequoyah is another Cherokee, because he has all of his fingers and ears.

The Cherokee Syllabary used today was created in 1827 by Elias Boudinot of the Cherokee Phoenix Newspaper and the Rev. Samuel Worcester.   You can see below the distinct differences in the two writing systems.

Writing system designed by Sequoyah.

Tsali:   Tsali (pronounced T’shä : lē) was a popular Creek name in the late 1700s and 1800s . . . generally given to “friendly” Creeks and Uchees by white men.  It means Charlie. 

I always wondered why one of the most famous Cherokee heroes had a Creek nick name and was born in the Creek village of Cussetta, but assumed someone so famous had been thoroughly researched by academicians. Another riddle to me was that fact that the official Cherokee and North Carolina versions of Tsali’s life place all the “action” in extreme western North Carolina.  YET . . . the streams and mountains mentioned in their version are all in either Rabun or Towns Counties, Georgia.

Actually, Tsali was researched in 1948 and two years ago by professional historians.  Their factual information had been ignored, but still is available on the internet and in libraries.

See https://peopleofonefire.com/the-famous-cherokee-martyr-tsali-was-actually-a-citizen-of-georgia-living-in-the-dillard-valley.html

The first researcher discovered in 1948 that Tsali was living on an allotment on Betty’s Creek in Rabun County, GA with other Uchee Indians, when he was arrested by federal troops.  It was an illegal arrest.  That is why Charlie protested bitterly to the soldiers.  He was not Cherokee and was a citizen of the State of Georgia, living on land that he owned fee simple.  The soldiers had no business even being in Rabun County.

The second research, from a professor at the University of Tennessee, accessed all the military records associated with the arrest and execution of Tsali.  It turns out as I already knew, most action took place on the trail between present day Dillard and Hiawassee, Georgia.  The cause of Tsali’s justifiable anger was not clear.  It was either that soldiers bayoneted his wife and daughters or else raped them.  Whatever the case,  a CHEROKEE posse’ was raised to hunt down Tsali.  It was led by none other than Junaluska!   Junaluska was a conjurer of demons in fires,  originally from the Dillard Valley, who moved west rather than accepting an allotment.   It could well be that Tsali was living on land, where Junaluska former lived.   Tsali certainly would have been considered a traitor by the traditional Cherokees because he renounced membership in any Native American tribe in order to be awarded a large land allotment in 1818.  He is labeled Charlie in allotment records.

After being captured by the Cherokees,  Tsali was taken to US Army officers at Fort Butler, just across the stale line in Murphy, NC.  Like the Roman governor, Pilate, who washed his hands of Jesus’s blood, the commanding officer gave Tsali back to the Cherokees.  Tsali was executed by a Cherokee firing squad just outside Fort Butler, ostensibly for violating Cherokee law.

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.

    I am a descendant of Nancy Ward and a bit of what you wrote is inaccurate. It is true that the “great war” was dramatically over-exaggerated. Cheucunsene (Dragging Canoe) another ancestor of mine actually mocked her in a council over it. Her husband Kingfisher was killed and she merely took his gun long enough for Cherokee to escape. She killed two Creeks and Cheucunsene said years later, “You killed two warriors with five shots. A great feat. If I hadn’t killed three men with my knife as mere boy I would be as impressed as these women are. I have heard too much of your boasting and would rather be gathering onions with the old women.”

    Yes, she owned the first African Slaves. Yes, she betrayed Cheucunsene and warned her white husband. But the Creek Chief Alexander McGillivray of the Wind Clan mentored at the largest Slave Trade Company in Charles Town while studying Greek and Latin. History was ugly. However, she was born in 1738, five years after Cheucunsene. Her daughter Elizabeth Ward was born in the 1760s and had other children with General Joseph Martin.

    George Sequoyah Gist was 3/4 Jewish and 1/4 Cherokee. His father was Nathaniel Gist. His grandfather was Christopher Gist, mentor to President George Washington. Sequoyah got his mother’s name from her Sephardic Jewish father Dr. John Sequeyra. Her name was Verde Sequeyra. Wurteh was just a Cherokee pronunciation of Verde. No African Voodoo Woo Woo. He was never attacked by Cherokee. That is nonsense rooted in a book called “Tell them they lie” from the 1970s. Sequoyah was a sell out traitor who signed the Treaty of 1817 giving up lands to Andrew Jackson that Cheucunsene, Ridge, Benge, Lowery and the young John Ross acquired in 1816 from President Madison in Washington D.C. He invented nothing. He just shared the ancient Tawodi (Hawk) Clan writing with all Cherokee. The Tawodi were a mix of Sardinian, Coastal West African and Central American. They come from Phoenicians (Canaanites) from the Tribe of Dan way back. The Kituwa religion isn’t African. It comes from Abraham’s third wife Keturah. Her name referred to the smoke from a sacred fire or anything burned in it. She was a Phoenician Ukuku (Owl) Priestess and the word Ukuku or You means Owl in Tsalagi and Sumerian for that reason. The Cherokee word for “water” is Ama and was represented by an “m” with a anchor line in Phoenician. The Kituwa letter for “Ma” is a motorized form. Both come from Ancient Egypt’s symbol for Water. Waves like an M.

    Tsali was Snowbird Charlie. He was a conjuror and nearly beat Major Ridge to death in council when Ridge refused to join Tecumseh and the Northern Creeks. He and his sons stabbed Ridge several times in the exchange. Junaluska was a conjuror also and they hated each other. Junaluska actually led the group who crossed the river and broke through Red Stick defences. Is ironic he has a Christian site named for him at Lake Junaluska today. He did conjure spirits out of the fire. Water and Fire are full of spirits. Very similar forces, always in motion. Flowing. Whispering and Hissing. Jesus was a conjuror. Anointed people with the Holy Spirit and with Fire. His cousin John the Baptist used water. Spirituality has the word spirit in it for a reason. King Solomon wore the six pointed star as a ring and controlled many spirits. Sol-Amun means “Son of Amen Ra.” Is where Jews, Christians, and Muslims all got the word Amen. Egyptian Conjurors ended prayers with it to seal their words with their deity Amen Ra.

    Yeah. The Eastern Band executed Tsali. He was no saint. He killed women and children with Doublehead and ate them. Don’t weep for him. We can’t be selective in who we celebrate or critique. From the safety of our vagina soft modern world.

    • University of Oklahoma professors searched and searched the archives of South Carolina, Georgia and North Carolina, but the only prominent Cherokee war leader mentioned in these archives, named Kingfisher, was killed in the Battle of Etowah Cliffs in 1793. There were no battles between the Upper Creeks and Cherokees in either 1754 or 1755.

      There was no battle of Taliwa and was never any Creek town named Taliwa. In fact, there was no Native town at that site in the mid-1700s. The Cherokees would have had to travel a hundred miles through hostile Upper Creek territory to reach the Etowah River, where Apalache Creeks lived. Nevertheless, in early 1754 the Cherokees and all but one of the Creek provinces signed a peace treaty. Coweta refused to sign the treaty unless the Cherokees gave back the land taken from them immediately after the massacre of 32 Creek leaders at Tugaloo. When the Cherokees refused to do that, Coweta launched a blitzkrieg attack that resulted in a third of the Cherokee villages being burned. The Cowetas capture six Cherokee chiefs and burned them at the stake on the Chattahoochee River. The Cherokees sent a delegation of leaders to Charleston to beg the British to attack Coweta. When Coweta heard about this effort, a special squad of mixed blood Creeks in European clothes, sneaked into Charleston and murdered 25 Cherokee chiefs on the streets. Thus when the tally of 32 Cherokee chiefs was reached, to match the loss of 32 Creek chiefs at Tugaloo, the Cowetas declared the war over, but retained possession of the land that they had taken back.

        The relationship between the Creeks and Cherokee is similar to that between Poland and Russia. Russia invaded Poland multiple times and Poles captured Moscow. To others we seem most alike. To us we’re two worlds apart.

        I agree. There was no Battle of Taliwa. But the Cherokee and Creeks always had squabbles. We like them as much as y’all do. Nancy fought in a squabble. Then she and the ladies made it into a great battle Taliwa retelling it and having it grow each time. Kinda like the Creeks did with your Beloved Women. Is how it goes. Gagoga. Women are great weavers. A man must invent 100 things to every one thing a woman invents to receive equal praise. The world reacts with a shrug, “You have achieved. You are a man, is that not your role in life?” If a woman does anything it’s a wonder of wonders. Similar to a man giving birth. Everybody must praise her feat because it is unusual.

        Those delegates or diplomats the Creeks assassinated in the streets of Charles Town were mostly old men and all unarmed. The men you are calling mixed Creeks were white men operating the Jewish slave market. Those are your Creek warriors? I thought the Red Sticks were. That’s why the Cherokee took their lands and created our Nation East on them. I feel like Doc Holiday in Tombstone and you’re Johnny Ringo. “Does this mean we’re not gonna be friends?” Haha The Cherokee are making moves to recover lands. The Creeks aren’t doin it. Maybe one day the Creeks will ask the Cherokee for their lands back and the Cherokee will be big brother. Probably not. Probably just let the Creeks have a casino on it and tax them. Make them pay an annual fee to use their own grounds. They are Cherokee lands now. The whole Nation will one day be on them. In time.

        Your people betrayed the wrong man in 1788 when they kidnapped his daughter and helped Americans murder Old Tassel and Old Abram, burning Chilhowee. They knew who they were crossing. Americans didnt but the Creeks knew very well what a Plumed Serpent is. We would be brothers today if they hadn’t been fools.

        • There is no mention of most of the contents of the Nancy Ward tale in her 1824 obituary. It stated that she was born in 1761 and listed several white men that she had lived with and born children. There is no mention of Kingfisher, who actually died in the Battle of Etowah Cliffs in 1793. It does mention her warning to white neighbors of pending Cherokee attacks. The first mention of the Battle of Taliwa was in a dime novel, published in 1828 by a distant white cousin of Nancy’s.

          The raiders in Charleston were young soldiers from Coweta, which was then located in the area of west Georgia near Columbus, but originally were from the area of North Carolina, north of Franklin. No other Creek provinces took part in the last phase of the war. They were not Jewish slave traders.

          The Creeks and Cherokees were very different genetically and culturally. We are almost entirely O+ blood and Mesoamerican type DNA. We carry the gene which enables the metabolism of grain sugars, so do not have a chronic problem with alcoholism and diabetes like many Northern tribes such the Cherokees. At the present time, 87% of the adults on the Qualla Reservation have some stage of diabetes. Bipolar behavior disorder is endemic among Cherokees. It will cause them to go into rages without warning. This was an asset in battle, but not in getting along with each other. Lesbianism, bisexuality and homosexuality are quite common among Cherokees, but almost unheard of among full-blood Creeks, unless they had some Shawnee ancestors. Creek religion was monotheistic, while Cherokee religion involved the conjuring of demons from sacred fires and springs.

          In 1788 “my people” were living in a pro-American community on the Upper Savannah River and fighting along side white neighbors, to fend off attacks from Upper Creek raiders. No the Creeks and Cherokees are not the same. I didn’t even know that the Muskogees were Creeks until in my early 20s. LOL

            Haha Sure know how to paint a funny picture. Will give you that. The Cherokee are obese, bipolar sexual deviants who are mostly European and worship demons. Quite the imagination.

            Not hurting my feelings. I’m over here in Central Europe enjoying the stunningly beautiful women, working out on the regular, eating quality food, and trying to figure out how I’m a mix of ancient Sardinian Phoenicians, Coastal West Africans and Central Americans who mixed for many generations there before Columbus ever thought of setting sail. Some Central American comes from Cheucunsene but I have no clue how Sardinian and Coastal West African got mixed in. DNA don’t lie though.

          • I was not kidding about any of that. Right out of planning school, I was a consultant to the Qualla Housing Authority on the Cherokee Reservation. Then the diabetes rate was 25%. Now it is o7. Then during much of 2010, I was camping out very close to the Snowbird Cherokee Reservation and rented a booth for my computer from a Snowbird Cherokee. He would not date Cherokee women, because of their emotional instability from age 16 to age 45. He married a blond Anglo gal that he met at North Carolina state. Unlike you, I have been around a lot of Cherokees. Some are stable, but many will just go into rages or deep depression without any visible cause.

            Obesity rates have been rising across the US in every state. Diabetes is an issue on every Rez in America. An argument could be made that Americans are all bipolar in comparison to folks I’m meeting over here who are way more stable. Just look at how millions are behaving on the Left and Right at the moment. Drug abuse, alcoholism, children on ADD meds and anti-psychotics, and the last election people were forced to choose between Trump or Clinton. All that tells me about the Cherokee is that they are now more American than Indian. Which was the goal all along, right? Can’t speak on bisexual or homosexual tendencies. I don’t have those and don’t really care if others do. Is their business.

            You’re right, I grew up on military bases in California and the Philippines around Navy Seals, Seabees, and Marines. Only time I ever spent any time there was while visiting family and I know how much I stand out when I do. I will say though that before moving to Europe I stopped through with my wife to see family. I felt a dark cloud hovering over the whole area after leaving Asheville around Lake Junaluska. Closer we got to the Qualms Boundary the heavier the feeling became. Was there three days and couldn’t sleep right. Three hours a night and bad dreams each night. Wife didnt notice it. We left earlier than intended and drove up to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg. As we went up out of Cherokee I felt it physically begun to drop. Stopped at the old frontier style restaurant right at the bottom of the mountains. Can’t recall the name. The feeling was completely gone. That did bother me. Something is going on there. Definitely conjuring of some sort and it is ugly. Is odd how tourists don’t seem to notice it.

    Cherokee and Creeks need to be working together to help each other and not fighting against each other. Unfortunately every Jesus had his Judas and every Caesar his Brutus. There will always be snakes in the grass who disturb aaffairs. I am certain of one thing. If we continue pulling each other back one step every time the other takes two forward we won’t get far.

    The Cherokee have many factions who cannot agree on the most basic things. I’m sure it is the same for the Creeks. Is the same the world over among any people. Balance is difficult to keep and a perennial process. So you know my jabs back are in jest. I enjoy these sort of exchanges. Was smiling when I read yours and grinning like a goon while responding last. End of the day I enjoy your posts, even when you’re doggin us. Sometimes it’s funny. But details matter. Kingfisher became a fairly popular name after her first husband. Dragging Canoe had two sons also named Dragging Canoe. Cheusdi Conseen (Little Dragging Canoe) and Chuleo Conseen (Young Dragging Canoe). Confused the Americans and other Cherokee at times who was doing what and when. Is why folks still say Sr. died in 1792. Was actually his eldest son who died when Sr. was 60.

    Does the Creek Nation own and control any of your traditional lands in Georgia today? If so that’s good. If not they should. Oklahoma is not our lands.

    • No, the Muscogee-Creek Nation does not own any lands in Georgia. However, our tribe, the Coweta Creek Confederacy, plans to establish several small reserves for retirement communities.

        Best of wishes with that. Every people should have their own. Is crazy to think that fake Egyptian cults by hoople headed Harlem fools can build amusement park pyramids in Georgia for their nutter butter followers but Creeks can’t control their native lands. All I know of Georgia is traffic in Atlanta always sucks. Could never just drive through without a traffic jam. Even at night.

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.
