Status of the People of One Fire Youtube channel


The People of One Fire Youtube channel is currently not accessible, because there are no videos on it.  However, thanks to the generosity of POOF fans, I was able to purchase a broadcast quality microphone/sound system and software, which converts Power Point slide shows to multi-media films.  I am currently recording the sounds of the many handmade indigenous American musical instruments I own.   They will accompany my narration of the movie-tized slide shows.  I initially will produce short films on individual Native American archaeological sites in the Southeast.  When people send me their videos or in the future, or when I am able to afford a video camera, I will also post conventional videos.  Of course, the big “bombshell on Youtube” will occur, when I am able to obtain the French-made Artlantis software, which will convert the 3D computer models of Native towns that I have created over the past 14 years into animated films.  Artlantis also has the capacity to digitally splice in videos of the archaeological sites today with the animated films of how these towns looked in the past.  I hope eventually to produce 30-45 minute commercial quality films, suitable for public television. The POOF Channel should be “on the air” by the first week in January 2018.  Thank you for your patience. 

The following two tabs change content below.
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.



    Sounds very exciting!
    Richard, next month I have to do a small presentation on South America, specifically about the history of the gulf coast region. This is to a group in Maine. I want to center on the truth as opposed to erased history, and specifically about the southeastern united states connections. I know this is a massive topic, but it will be a “teaser” and a way to introduce the group to the People of One Fire web site. I have spoken to a couple of people over the last 2 years, and that’s how this all got set up. Do you have any pointers or maybe a basic cd or power point I could use or look at to organize something?

    • Right now, I do not have a presentation that links South America with the Southeastern United States. I have hesitated to create something more permanent until we have more facts. However, the upcoming time line as part of this series will probably help you a lot.


        Thanks! Looking forward to it!

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!
