Video: New March 2019 report on Paracas skull DNA

Video:  New March 2019 report on Paracas skull DNA


The cone shaped type of Paracas skull is identical to that of the Satlile king at the mouth of the Satilla River on the Georgia coast.

The latest video from Brien Foerster in Peru does an excellent job of explaining the many differences between the Paracusa People and standard indigenous Americans.  Their actual name was Paracusa, which is a Panoan word, which means “Ocean-strong (or elite).”  The Satile were also Panoans.  Captain René de Laudonnière, commander of Fort Caroline, stated that the name of the king was Satiuriwa.  That was actually his title.  Satiuriwa is a Panoan word, which means, “Colonists-king.”   Until the 1700s, the official title of proto-Creek kings was Paracusa.   

The young women of the Satile were required to sacrifice their first born sons to their king . . . presumably for him to eat.  As mentioned in earlier articles, it was also customary in Central Mexico for kings and priests to eat the flesh of sacrificed babies and children. 

The king of the Satile and René de Laudonnière watch as a baby is about to be sacrificed.  Note the king’s conical head.



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.



    Now that’s what I call the proverbial smoking gun. It’s not going to help anthropologists much when they reread the Gomez 2003 paper which shows the earliest tuberculosis in the Americas occurring in the Paracusa-Caverna people around 160 ad either.

    Very nice find and congratulations on your new website Richard.


      Would love to see Willerslev have a look at the dna to remove any doubt of contamination however.



    The verdict is in. The issue of
    whether or not the disproportionately high levels of R1b found in some native populations are of a pre or a post Colombian origin has finally been solved.

    Congratulations… R1b is now officially Native American DNA!

    I guess this means that everyone with R1b is going to have to go back and get retested to see if they are of native or European male ancestry.

    At least it’s official at the Wikipedia “native American dna” article. The silly buggers still believe in the Beringia (only) Hypothesis however. One day the implications of the R1b global heat map will finally dawn on them lol!

    • Our family has a lot of R1b – was classified as Basque. HOWEVER, it has also been associated with the Corded Ware and Beaker Cultures. The Uchees made cord-marked beakerware, when they first arrived in Georgia.


        Close similarity to Basque and Beaker would point towards your y-dna arriving through a window around 6000 to 3500 years ago. The
        earliest Archaic R1a (MA and at Windover etc.) should then be a couple of thousand years older and of course the X2a considerably older still (+12,000 yrs). In that event everything begins to line up nicely with the population dynamics occuring in NW Europe during the late mesolithic / early neolithic.

        I also remember reading somewhere that there was “anomalous y-dna” found in the research leading to the 2017 Maritime Archaic / Beothuk genetic discontinuity paper. Understanding the gene flow on the Atlantic coast is critical to understanding the bigger picture. I hope they realise soon that it’s finally OK to talk about GENUINE 100% native R1a and R1b.

        They tried to fit the R1b into the post Columbian slot and failed so now they have to repackage your R1b as another group of 25,000 year old genetically isolated Beringian holdovers.

        Wonderful stuff this genetics. Anthropologists must be cursing it!

        • The Uchees arrived in Savannah around 1200 BC. The Uchees have consistently stated that they crossed the Atlantic from the “Home of the Sun” to reach the South Atlantic Coast. Those statements are in the early Colonial archives of Georgia. References make people think that the Uchees were mainly in eastern Tennessee, but their homeland was between the Savannah and Ogeechee Rivers in eastern Gergia.


    One last comment after a little digging …

    Cranial deformation was also practiced by the Choctaw and was found in Missippian burials in Ohio. Always in conjunction with grave items suggesting high social status.

    It was also practiced by the Egyptian pharaohs for centuries (see Nefertiti and Akenaten) who incidentally possess R1b dna.

    The most interesting observation however is that it was gun however was practiced by the Lapps in Scandinavian up until the early 20th century.

    Thought you’d like to know.

    • I knew that the Choctaw practiced head deformation. However, the Sami practiced head deformation? I never knew that. It is a little bit of history, which we are never told.

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.

Support Us!

Richard Thornton . . . the truth is out there somewhere!
