LatinaLista — Did the Mayans of Mexico travel to Georgia? Are they the ancestors of the present-day Creek Indians? Did the Mayans leave clues that they were in the U.S.? Well, according to a program on the History cable channel, America Unearthed, yes, to all of the above.
The program’s host, Dr. Scott Wolter, is a forensic geologist who is on a mission to alert people that a lot of the history we’ve been taught isn’t correct. For example, that the Mayans didn’t live in Georgia is myth according to a fascinating episode on this program.
Wolter finds evidence in plain sight of a Mayan connection not only in Georgia but also in Florida. It makes for great irony, especially in Georgia, given the anti-immigrant legislation passed in that state. To think Georgia was first settled by the people they want deported.
