True History of the Creek Indians


True History of the Creek Indians

Creek historian Richard Thornton is interviewed about the Maya, Euchee, Apalache and others in the Southeast. Part One of Two.

Host Pete Ferrand interviews Georgia architect and author Richard Thornton about the surprising original diversity of American Indians in the Southern Highlands before they were crassly collapsed into only two federal groups, the Creeks and the Cherokees. When History Channel’s H2 network premiered a new series entitled “America Unearthed,” the opening episode on “American Mayan Secrets” was based on Thornton’s iconoclastic research and out-back rambles around Georgia. It became the network’s highest rated show ever. Thornton also says the story of Indian-White relations could have been – and still might become—much less antagonistic.

  1. I enjoyed the Podcast about the Creek Indians… I do know that the Forensic Geologist Scott Wolter
    did have a show called America Unearthed. I watched ALL his shows and I Love his work. I believe
    Scott Wolter is, without a doubt, The very best in his field. I trust his judgement and I think he is the greatest !
    Wish his shows were still on TV. I will watch the older ones I find though.
    Thank you so much,
    Barbara Hawkins
