The Time of the Sun Lords
Roger Barnett is known to the people of Oklahoma as the affable Second Chief of the Muscogee-Creek Nation. His real title in the Mvskoke language is Henehv (He(-ne(-ha(w.) That word is derived from the Itza Maya political title, hene-ahau, which means “sun lord.” Both the Creeks and the Mayas once called their High Kings, Great Suns. No one in “mainstream” academia ever caught the connection.
Several Southeastern Native American tribes maintain traditions that long in the past, “Sun Lords” or “Sun People” migrated to North America and introduced the large scale cultivation of corn and beans, plus more sophisticated concepts for the organization of society. The Creek and Cherokee Indians even have traditions that there once was a great city on the side of Georgia’s highest mountain, which ruled much of the region. Caucasian ethnologists dutifully wrote down these traditions, but treated them as myths; of no more scientific significance than “Hansel and Gretel” by the Brothers Grimm.
This article in the series about the debut of American Unearthed is an overview of various Southeastern Native American traditions that describe immigration by groups of advanced people from the south. These immigrants became the elite of much more sophisticated societies. Creek and Cherokee legends, plus early European archives, specifically describe a great city on the side of Georgia’s highest mountain, which undoubtedly refers to the Track Rock Archaeological Zone.
The article also explains how what archaeologist call “The Lamar Culture” came about. Additional information can be found at:
