    Maybe, maybe not. Byline dtd 21 Dec 2011, exactly 1 year from the mayan end of world prediction. Source, “Examiner.com” under architecture and design. I smell publicity hounds. Native Americans built many mounds all over the U.S.. I didn’t see a direct smoking gun. Sounds like more a buildup to the smoking earth prediction for next year. I wouldn’t get too exited unless I saw the discovery posted at an archeology or science site.

  2. This isn’t completely surprising. The Timucua tribe lived in Georgia and they were from Amazonoan stock. Plus Greenberg says there is a strong linguistic link between the Zapotec (Mayan) and Appalachee tribe who occupied this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velda_Mound.
    I don’t see a strong link there, but I definitely see one with Timucua, which is technically a language isolate.
    They lived in southern Georgia on the Louisiana Border, before they were wiped out by plague in the early 1500’s

    1. I’m also one of the linguistic school which believes there were 2 migrations. North to South (Bering Strait to the Rio Grande) and from South to North (Chilean/Amazon to Mexico). There is such linguistic diversity in a 150 miles radius in just Colombia, it’s mind blowing.
