Waitaha . . . example of how occult bureaucrats and archaeologists bury the past

Waitaha . . . example of how occult bureaucrats and archaeologists bury the past


We really don’t know who built the ancient enigmatic stone structures in New Zealand and the Southern Highlands of the United States. They are almost identical as are many of the petroglyphs in the two widely separated regions.   However, for an alliance of government bureaucrats and some anthropology professors to pretend that they don’t exist is a situation beyond academic fraud.

First, let me remind new POOF readers that there are many myths floating around these days concerning “red haired people” and “chickens in South America” so please ignore inaccurate statements made by some anonymous authors in Wikipedia  and on various blog sites.  

The aboriginal, Neolithic-Bronze Age peoples of Ireland, Scotland and Scandinavia were NOT Celts.  They had dark hair, brown eyes and bronze complexions quite similar to many indigenous Americans today.   The Blue-Gray eye gene has been found in the dark-complexioned peoples of England, however.  True Celts lived in the eastern portion of the Alps had a range of eye colors and dark hair.  The Red Hair gene originated in the southern tip of Iran at the edge of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization.  Red hair appearing among Maori does NOT mean that they had “Irish Celtic” ancestors.  The ancestors of most Irish today appeared in eastern Ireland at the beginning of the Iron Age.

Secondly, as POOF explained in an article a couple of years ago,  the indigenous chickens of South America  are NOT descended from those in Europe or Polynesia.  This was proven by research commissioned by universities in Peru and Chile.  The closest relative of the indigenous American chicken was the first domesticated chicken of the Indus Valley Civilization. This was determined by comparing 4000 year old DNA from the Indus Valley with modern pure-bred Araucana chickens.   Genetic analysis then revealed that around 300 years ago the Araucana chicken had been bred into an smaller, inferior chicken in southern Europe to create the Leghorn, which is the ancestor of modern commercial poultry breeds.  Thus, the real situation was that modern chickens are partially descended from American chickens, not the other way around.  In the article below, you will also learned that the ancestors of the Creeks were raising chickens before the arrival of Spanish explorers!

Geneticists identify a chicken breed that is indigenous to the Americas

There are many shared words that we can’t explain.  The aboriginal Irish,  Algonquians, Shawnee, Cherokees, Muskogee-Creeks and Maori all use the same suffix for “people or tribe.”   Anglicized, it is written variously as ge, gee, ke, kee or kai.

This one will blow your mind.  The word and suffix for “place of” is “pa” in Maori,  Samoan,  Chontal Maya and Coastal Creek Indian languages.  In Muskogee Creek, pa became fa.   The Chontal Mayas were descendants of the “Olmec” Civilization.

A very special film series from New Zealand

People of One Fire featured the outstanding documentary films of New Zealand’s Plumtree Productions two years ago.  At the time, I had no clue that our family carried some DNA markers labeled “Maori.”  A primitive DNA test in 2005 did tell me that I was 1-3%  Polynesian or Southeast Asian.  The good news is that you can watch all three episodes of “Skeletons in the Cupboard” on either Youtube and Vimeo.  That was not possible when Plumtree graciously allowed us to premier their series in the United States.

All three episodes are DIRECTLY relevant to the indigenous histories of the Americas.  However, Episode 2 is particularly relevant to our experiences here in the Southeast.  Archaeologists, architects, historians, engineers and geologists with open, scientific minds have been incessantly excluded from the public view.  This fall, People of One Fire is going to be studying a vast archaeological zone covering several counties in three states, whose hundreds (or thousands?) of stone structures have been kept secret from the public.  Several of these structures are official state-recognized archaeological sites, first identified by archaeologists Charles C. Jones, Cyrus Thomas, Robert Wauchope, Arthur Kelly or Phillip White . . . but because their existence is not compatible with current archaeological mythology, the public and elected government officials do not know that they exist.

After watching this film, please read the Wikipedia article on the Waitaha.


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.



    Very informative article. There are some questions posted in the earlier (prior to this one) article “Ancient, Pre-Maori stone temple in New Zealand”.

    After reading this article there seems to be a two way migration; from and into the Pacific Ocean.
    The Lapita Cultured people migrated from west to east into MesoAmerica eventually reaching southeastern North America while the Indus Valley people migrated from east to west via the Atlantic Ocean into the Americas before migrating through the Pacific Ocean into New Zealand.

    • Urisahatu, do you remember me mentioning that the early Lapita stamped pottery was very similar to the Conibo stamped pottery in Peru and the Swift Creek stamped pottery in Peru. The Conibo built stone-walled and log-walled terrace complexes just like the Itza Mayas. There are several Panoan words in Itza.


        Do remember you mentioning the similar pottery in the Americas.

        The point regarding the DNA is the Polynesian mtDNA (from mother to daughter) B4a1a1 originating in the Lapita Culture region which is the ancestor of both the Malagasy motif mtDNA B4a1a1a2 in Madagascar and the Maori motif mtDNA B4a1a1a3 (also mutations B4a1a1a5 and B4a1a1c both Maori motifs) in New Zealand. Both the Malagasy and the Maori mtDNA are an offshoot from the Polynesian motif mtDNA B4a1a1.
        When you look on a map of the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean you will notice that the Lapita Culture region is approximately in the middle meaning the Polynesian motif mtDNA B4a1a1 migrated both to the west and to the east. One migration route through Island Southeast Asia into the Indian Ocean the other migration route from near Oceania to remote Oceania into the Pacific Ocean.

        Hypothetically if the Indus Valley people are the ‘wall’ builders in a pre-Maori (read pre-Polynesian/pre-mtDNA B4a1a1a3, B4a1a1a5, B4a1a1c) New Zealand it means the Indus Valley people did not mixed with Polynesians (mtDNA B4a1a1..) until the Polynesians arrived relatively late.
        That’s why the questions are asked since the title of the earlier article states ‘pre-Maori’ meaning ‘pre-Polynesian’ (“Ancient, Pre-Maori stone temple in New Zealand”).

        If the Indus Valley people did mix with people carrying mtDNA B4a1a1.. prior to their arrival in New Zealand there are a few options where they could have mixed.
        The Indus Valley people could have mixed with
        1. people similar to the Malagasy (Malagasy motif mtDNA B4a1a1a2) in the Indian Ocean
        2. Polynesian ‘Lapita’ people who lived in MesoAmerica (perhaps also South America)
        3. Polynesians in the Pacific Ocean during their migration towards New Zealand

        There is one option which is far fetched yet that could explain cultural relatedness without mixing in at least New Zealand.
        Hypothetically the Indus Valley people could have had several migration routes.
        Several hypothetical migration routes:
        a. Into the Indian Ocean through Island Southeast Asia into the Bismarck Archipelago during the Lapita Culture without mixing. Migrating into Central- and MesoAmerica and further into southeastern North America and beyond the Atlantic Ocean (west to east migration).

        b. Into the Indian Ocean through Island Southeast Asia into the Bismarck Archipelago during the Lapita Culture where they split in at least two directions:
        b1. Lapita Cultured migration into Central- and MesoAmerica with mixing of mtDNA B4a1a1 possibly meaning the Maori motif came into existance.
        b2. Migration from the Bismarck Archipelago into New Zealand without mixing prior to the arrival of Polynesians (Maori?).

        This way the Indus Valley people could have two separate populations both culturally linked to the Lapita Culture yet genetically slightly different ;one unmixed the other admixed; since their split or outmigration from the Lapita Cultural region which is the Bismarck Archipelago.

        The peopling of the Americas, the migrations and cultural similarities in geographical distant places/regions are very interesting topics; probably the topics what most POOF members/readers like to learn from.

        • Thank you for your outstanding comment. I hope everyone reads it because it should be an article in itself. It was very informative and light years ahead of the “People of the Americas” propaganda on Wikipedia.


    What do you know of a people, called the moon eyed people.

    • That is a tradition attributed to the Cherokees, but not found anywhere in the literature that they wrote themselves until the late 20th century. “The History of the Cherokee People” (1826) by Principal Chief Charles Hicks states that Western North Carolina was inhabited by Muskogean Mound Builders, when they first invaded the region. He stated that the Cherokees killed or drove out the “Mound Builders.” The first mention of “mooneyed people” was by a white author in 1796. Benjamin Smith Barton’s 1797 book New Views of the Origin of the Tribes and Nations of America stated that the Cherokees found the Southern Appalachians occupied by white people called Mooneyes, when they arrived. The Cherokees supposedly drove them out. It was also said that these people spent so much time in the dark that they had trouble seeing in the daytime.

      This label is problematic because the name of the Cherokees in almost every Native language except Creek mean “cave dwellers” in English. So it was the Cherokees, who lived underground. Nevertheless, there WERE white people living in the Southern Appalachians during the late 1500s and 1600s. They were Sephardic Jewish miners and farmers. There is no mention of the Cherokees on any European map of the Southeast until 1717. The Cherokees are shown by French and Dutch maps to be living in Quebec during the mid-1600s. The Mooneye tradition may have begun when the Cherokees actually encountered Scandinavian explorers and colonists while living in Quebec. The Norse tend to have blue or gray eyes.


    Richard, more Proof of a Sea fairing peoples that had arrived to South America then some left from there and made their way West towards Australia? Some made their way to North America then over to Europe… Just one of the many peoples that arrived by boats to this landmass. The mega old stonework could trace back to the Americas. In any case 2 groups of peoples arrived to the Pacific islands from 2 directions….probably some mixed in America…note the two different types of ships and combining the best uses of both ships became a Sea fairing trade empire.


    Richard, concerning the Native Nations of the Eastern side of Canada/ U.S.: There was a connection of scull measurements and symbols found between the ancient Maori (New Zealand) with North Africa, Iberian, Zuni peoples (Sea Peoples) and the Native Americans. The DNA tests are now proof of the connection with the Polynesia area and across the Atlantic. So an ancient exodus from India’s Sea peoples seems to have been proven for the Americas but still not taught by the universities of this country yet? (Saga America…Dr. Berry Fell book pg. 293) Thanks for the Great articles.

    • Mark, you know the weird thing is that the studies you described are well documented, but American anthropology professors will not acknowledge them and still state just the opposite.


        Richard, they have done a very good job at not agreeing with the science so far.
        It is possible that some of the American Natives migrated from the Americas or were hired for some time to bring down the Bronze age Mycenaean Greek empire that was expanding as far as Spain. The Phoenicians cities were spared, for some reason, destruction in the Sea peoples attacks in the 12-11th century and were connected to the city of Tarshish and other Atlantic Sea port trade cities that would have had the cargo ships to make the crossing of the Atlantic. Likely some built here first.

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.
