Video : Mesoamerican Giants . . . the legends and the facts

Video : Mesoamerican Giants . . .  the legends and the facts


Yes, there were extremely tall humans in Central Mexico before the Aztecs arrived.

After the Spanish conquered Central Mexico in the 1520s, the indigenous peoples told them that the great pyramids of Cholula and Teotihuacan, plus the Olmec Civilization were created by giants, who came down from the sky then ruled those cities. The Nahua Peoples, who told these legends, were not even around when these pyramids were built. The Spanish and five centuries of scholars scoffed at the story . . . but in fact, there is some truth to it . . . depending on how one defines the word “giant.” Very tall humans DID live in Central Mexico prior to the arrival of the Aztecs. We are going to tell you what happened to them and where their descendants live today.

Meanwhile . . . a feller jest can’t get no respect.  A young man, with no genetic or cultural connection to Etowah Mounds and no professional background that would enable him to fully understand the famous archaeological site,  spent a few hours there with his video camera.  He decided that Etowah Mounds could only have been built by giant extraterrestrials.  His video now has over 154,000 views on Youtube.  My first complete tour of Etowah Mounds was led by Arthur Kelly and Lewis Larson, the archaeologists, who excavated Etowah Mounds for three years in the 1950s.  Several decades later, I lived near Etowah Mounds for three years . . . visiting the site regularly . . . then was hired by the Muscogee-Creek Nation to thoroughly study both the site and all available archaeological reports for several months prior to building an 8 feet by 6 feet model of the town.   My viewership on YouTube is 1/100th the one about Extraterrestrial Giants building Etowah.  Such is the nature of our times.  Many Americans today are far more inclined to believe mythology than facts. Nevertheless, if the billy goat keeps on butting that proverbial dam, the truth just might get out.  LOL


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.



    Every culture has giants. Even Genesis 6. And if Genesis 6 is true, they were technically extraterrestrials!

    • That is true. I will get into that in the final video on Teotihuacan. This short video was merely to present the known facts. Even the Creeks have a tradition of intermarrying with tall extraterrestrials.


    Richard, it’s amazing in the 20th century that there are still ancient people in Mexico that preceded the Mexica and we are now finding out about them. The same stone art symbols at the “first city in Mexico” and copper / bronze age Sweden still indicates a migration from here to across the Atlantic. Any Native lore about where the Calusa people arrived from? Thanks for the articles.

    • I am very anxious to read the report on the surviving Tolteca. For decades, the anthropology profession have labeled them Nahua . . . which didn’t make sense because the Nahua brought down the Tolteca Civilization.

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.
