Southeastern Stone Structure Survey is still continuing
The People of One Fire’s readership has grown exponentially in the past three years. One month it was over 77,000!
Many of the new readers and subscribers are not aware that for over five years we have maintained archives, which describe the specific locations of Native American stone structures in the Southeast. The Southeastern Stone Structure survey consists of a digital GIS map, photographic archives and written descriptions of the sites. We are doing this because many states do not even list the stone structures as either archaeological or historic sites. We have an agreement with the National Park Service that in return for their agency providing us with the secret locations of stone cairns and enclosures on NPS properties, we at some point in the future give them a copy of our survey.
If you see a probable Native American stone structure site, while hiking or canoeing, please take the time to obtain its GPS coordinates. If possible, take some photos and send POOF a brief description of what you encountered.
Remember . . . Native American heritage is America’s heritage!
