In a fascinating report published today by the Slave Dwelling Project, it was revealed that in 1703, 42% of the households in New York City, owned slaves. Many of those slaves were either Native Americans or Mustees (mixed Native-African heritage.) As late as 1790, the State of New York still ...

The original word from which the Appalachian Mountains get their name traveled 3,200 miles to reach here.
The word, Apalache, first appeared in the Spanish archives during the Pánfilo de Narváez Expedition (1527-1536). When asked about gold, Florida Indians pointed to the north and said that the Apalache had much gold in their land. There are no gold deposits in Florida, but the first major gold ...

Can you figure out these two figures, newly exhibited at a museum in Western North Carolina?   Do they portray Native American toddlers, half-owl humans or extra-terrestrials?
A newly exhibited Native American sculpture in the Cherokee County Historical Museum portrays two figures with owl-like faces and toddler-like bodies. Do they represent an unusual style of Native American art or something else? Native American Brain Food. Wally Averett, a longtime member of the ...

I was fired on August 21, 2015 from the Examiner because I wrote a positive and accurate article about my experiences while being a friend of the Carter Family during the time he was governor.   I was playing Allman Brothers records with Jimmy and his offspring one Saturday afternoon at the governor's mansion, when a very young Joe Biden stopped by to ask Jimmy to run for president.   I had been the Examiners national architecture columnist for 5 1/2 years and was in the upper 5% of its writers in viewership.
Examiner.com fired Shawn Mathis, a Christian Perspectives Examiner, saying his content was not a good fit after he published five articles on gay marriage.

It has been assumed lost for 280 years, but now is turning the history books upside down.  Details of the Creek Migration Legend can be verified by maps, linguistics, archaeological sites and even a certain highway that you might be driving on. 
The recently discovered, original copy of the “Migration Legend of the Creek People” describes the journey of the ancestors of the Kvse-te (Kashita* or Cusseta People). They migrated from the foot of Orizaba Volcano in Vera Cruz State, Mexico across the rim of the Gulf of Mexico to southeastern ...

The eyewitness accounts of early Creek traditions are fascinating, but the detailed discussion of the Chickasaws being founding members of the Creek Confederacy turns the history books upside down.
Native American Brain Food. Chickasaws were founding members of the Creek Confederacy! Editors Note: POOF has transcribed one of the earliest documents placed in the archives of then new Georgia Historical Society. Our slightly different, original version comes from the archives of the Church of ...

Most of the newly discovered terrace complexes in the Southern Highlands seem to have been buttressed by log walls.  The author's experimental terrace garden has proven that timber walled terraces actually fertilize the soil and promote greater productivity in the plants.
Imagery provides convincing evidence that most terrace complexes contained log retaining walls and perhaps all began as log-walled earthworks. The majority of terrace complexes are at opposite ends of the Blue Ridge Mountain Range in Georgia and Virginia. Go figure?

The newly discovered Creek Migration legend is currently being studied along with other forgotten and lost documents found at the same time.  Maps,  linguistics, archaeology and even the highway you may be driving on confirm that it is an accurate overview of the past -  not mythology.

You know things are bad in Oklahoma, when the Principal Chief of the Muscogee-Creek Nation was refused admission to a conference with the President of the United States because of a background check!  Many of the largest Oklahoma tribes have essentially become organized crime.  The Cherokee Nation functions like a corrupt third world nation -  complete with widespread voter fraud.
Muscogee-Creek Principal Chief George Tiger has failed a Secret Service background check and therefore was denied attendance at a special conference between President Obama and leaders of the Five Civilized tribes. The Secret Service did not reveal what made Tiger such a security risk, ...

I was really angry when Judge Patrick Moore and his staff were fired, but the events took place at the exact time that I was evicted on Christmas Eve 2009 (supposedly by mistake) by a female attorney under contract with FannieMae.   However, obviously I had my own problems.  Folks from Oklahoma have been sending me horror stories about the goings on in their various tribes since then.  However, not living there, I was not in a position to write an article until some courageous Oklahoma investigative reporters found some hard facts.

New newly discovered documents in the United Kingdom's archives confirm what the original Migration Legend of the Creek People says.  The Chickasaws were one of the four founding members of the original Creek Confederacy -  called the People of One Fire.
