I have arranged these finding alphabetically.
Was there a giant race of humans before us? Could there been a
giant race existing before the flood. One age of Man dying out being
replaced by another.
Reports of giant remains and skeletons being unearthed show
that these giants indeed existed in a pre-existing culture. Read

GIANTS OF ALASKA
HOME PAGE FOR GIANTS
Ivan T. Sanderson, a well-known zoologist and frequent guest on Johnny Carson's TONIGHT SHOW in the 1960s (usually with an exotic animal with a pangolin or a lemur), once related
a story about a letter he received regarding an engineer who was stationed on the Aleutian island of Shemya during World War II. While building an airstrip, his crew bulldozed a group of
hills and discovered under several sedimentary layers what appeared to be human remains. The Alaskan mound was in fact a graveyard of gigantic human remains, consisting of
crania and long leg bones. The crania measured from 22 to 24 inches from base to crown. Since an adult skull normally measures about eight inches from back to front, such a large
crania would imply an immense size for a normally proportioned human. Furthermore, every skull was said to have been neatly trepanned (a process of cutting a hole in the upper
portion of the skull).
In fact, the habit of flattening the skull of an infant and forcing it to grow in an elongated shape was a practice used by ancient Peruvians, the Mayas, and the Flathead Indians of Montana.
Sanderson tried to gather further proof, eventually receiving a letter from another member of the unit who confirmed the report. The letters both indicated that the Smithsonian Institution
had collected the remains, yet nothing else was heard.

In the above photo are tracks of both giant humans and dinosaurs. These tracks can be found on Route 160 just before you get to Tuba City. The tracks are located on top of a mesa,
just after you crest a hill on the left hand side of road.
A Giant was unearthed in 1891, when workmen in Crittenden, Arizona excavated a huge stone coffin that had evidently once held the body of a man 12 feet tall. A carving on the granite
case indicated that he had six toes.
The Arizona tracks. Tracks of a barefoot human child were found, in the late 1960s, alongside some dinosaur tracks. The location was the Moenkopi Wash, near the little Colorado River
in northern Arizona
In 1984, similar tracks were found not far from the Moenkopi site. Many human tracks, dinosaur tracks, and a hand print of a child that had fallen. More adult tracks were found in 1986.
The Arizona tracks are located in the Glen Canyon geological Group, which is part of late Triassic to early Jurassic strata and supposedly 175 to 100 million years old.
In addition to 300 trydactyl dinosaur tracks, sheep tracks, bivalve prints, large amphibian and lungfish marks have been found. Over 60 human tracks have been mapped and
GIANTS OF ARKANSAS
In 1921, an Arkansan named Rowlands was digging in one of the many gravel pits on a line of small hillocks known as Crowley's Ridge, located two miles north of Finch. At a depth of
10 feet, Rowlands' shovel suddenly struck something large and solid. The object appeared at first to be a boulder, but excavating around it, Rowlands soon discovered that it was a
large rock-sculptured head of a man. It stood about 4 feet high, and the figure had a squared, protruding chin, small, tight-lipped mouth, a short nose, and a furrowed brow and stare
accented by two flat "buttons" of inlaid gold for eyes. Two more
gold discs ornamented the figure's ears, and a heart-shaped plug of copper was embedded in the chest. The top of the head was covered by a carved hood that draped down the nape,
and attached to a piece around the neck. Near the head, and in the same layer, Rowlands dug up a number of smaller objects: a gold ring, a small coffer made of volcanic pumice
(which does not exist in this region), and tiny carvings of men, animals, moons and stars. The head and artifacts soon became a local attraction, and the newspapers dubbed the
glowering figure "King Crowley." Several investigators authenticated the find, though they could not explain its presence in the ten-foot layer of gravel - geologically dated at 175,000
years. The head and objects were sent to the Arkansas Natural History Museum in Little Rock. The museum curators, who also examined the artifacts and had double-checked and
documented their discovery, were confident in the findings' authenticity to place them on public display. At the same time, however, some of the small carving samples were mailed to
the Smithsonian in Washington. The Smithsonian - being a far more conservative institution -described the carvings as truly "unexplained items," but could not reconcile the antiquity of
the strata in which they had been brought to light. Finally, after fifteen years of
vacillating on the subject, orthodoxy triumphed: The Smithsonian concluded that the Crowley Ridge artifacts could not be 175,000 years old as this contradicted established theory on
the age of human civilization, and therefore declared the artifacts fakes. Conforming to this prestigious conservative pronouncement, the Little Rock museum promptly took the stone
head and other objects off display, and eventually sold them to unnamed private collectors. The "King Crowley" had was shipped off to California, and the rest of the collection was
similarly scattered to the four winds. Today, the location of even a single object is unknown.
GIANTS OF CALIFORNIA
The bones of a twelve foot tall man were dug up in 1833 by a group of soldiers at Lompock Rancho,California.The skeleton was surrounded by giant weapons, and the skull featured a
double row of teeth.
In 1833, soldiers digging at Lompock Rancho, California, discovered a male skeleton 12 feet tall. The skeleton was surrounded by caved shells, stone axes, other artifacts. The skeleton
had double rows of upper and lower teeth. Unfortunately, this body was secretly buried because the local Indians became upset about the remains.
Miners in Lovelock Cave, California, discovered a very tall, red-haired mummy In 1911 This mummy eventually went to a fraternal lodge where it was used for "initiation purposes."
In 1931, skeletons from 8 Â½ to 10 feet long were found in the Humbolt lake bed in California
A giant found off the California Coast on Santa Rosa Island in the 1800s was distinguished by its double rows of teeth
1851 that a businessman named Hiram de Witt had brought back with him from a trip to California a piece of auriferous quartz rock about the size of a man's fist, and that while showing
the rock to a friend, it slipped from his hand and split open upon hitting the floor. There, in the center of the quartz, they discovered a cut-iron nail, six-penny size, slightly corroded but
entirely straight, with a perfect head. the quartz was given an age of over one million years.

the continent, at the same time that De Soto was blazing his famous trail, an expedition led by Coronado searched for the fabulously rich "Seven Cities of Cibola." Near Mexico's present-
day border with California and Arizona they ran into several tribes of Indian giants. Starting out from Mexico City with some three hundred Spaniards and eight hundred native Indians, the
Coronado expedition marched west to the Pacific Ocean. Then turning north-ward, they ascended the coast through regions that later became known as Sinaloa and Sonora. While this
march was underway, Hemando de Alarcon set sail with two ships up the coast, transporting the baggage and supplies for the soldiers. The original plan called for Alarcon and the
army to keep in frequent touch and to rendezvous at suitable harbors along the coast. So when the army reached the province of Senora, a force under Don Rodrigo Maldonado set out
to find the harbor and scan the horizon for Alarcon's ships. Maldonado sighted no ships, but he did return with an Indian who stood so tall as to astonish the Spaniards. Pedro de
Castaneda, who accompanied Coronado and later wrote the most complete and factual history of the expedition, records this unusual event as follows: "Don Rodrigo Maldonado, who
was captain of those who went in search of the ships, did not find them, but he brought back with him an Indian so large and tall that the best man in the army reached only to his chest.
It was said that other Indians were even taller on the coast."8 This giant evidently belonged to the Seri. This great Indian tribe occupied the island of Tiburon and the adjacent Sonora
coast on the Gulf of California. Historians testify to their tall stature.
Soon after this, while still trying to establish contact with Alarcon, Captain Melchior Diaz came across another tribe of giants. Taking twenty-five of his "most efficient men" and some
guides, Diaz struck out toward the north and west in search of the seacoast and the ships. "After going about 150 leagues," reports Castaneda, "they came to a province of exceedingly
tall and strong men--like giants " Evidently, these were the Cocopa, a Yuman tribe. According to Castaneda, these huge Indians went about mostly naked. "They . . . live," he adds, "in
large straw cabins built underground like smoke houses, with only the straw roof above ground. They enter these at one end and come out at the other. More than a hundred persons,
old and young, sleep in one cabin. When they carry anything, they can take a load of more than three or four hundredweight on their heads. Once when our men wished to fetch a log for
the fire, and six men were unable to carry it, one of these Indians is reported to have come and raised it in his arms, put it on his head alone, and carried it very easily."
(For a similar feat, see San Francisco Giants)
While among these Cocopas, the captain learned that ships had been seen at a point three days down toward the sea. But when Diaz' finally reached this place, he saw no sign of a
sail, even to the distant horizon. On a tree near the shore, however, his party found this written message: "Alarcon reached this place; there are letters at the foot of this tree." Diaz dug up
the letters and learned from them how long Alarcon had waited for news of the army and that he had gone back with the ships to New Spain, i.e., Mexico.9
But on his way back Alarcon changed his mind--and thus became the discoverer of the Colorado River giants. Sailing into the port of Culiacan, he came unexpectedly upon the San
Gabriel, loaded with provisions for Coronado. This chance meeting with the San Gabriel probably figured in Alarcn's decision to resume efforts to locate the explorer's party. At any rate,
he added this third ship to his fleet and continued up the coast. They sailed the Gulf of California until they entered the shallows near the head of the gulf. After hazarding the murky
shoals there and almost losing all three ships, he and his crew reached the mouth of the Colorado River. Dropping anchor here, Alarcon and his exploratory party launched two boats
against the river's furious current. "Thus began," writes historian Herbert Eugene Bolton, "the historic first voyage by Europeans up the Colorado River among the tall Yuman peoples
who lived along its banks on either side."10
A piece up the river Alarcon and his men came upon their first settlement. About two hundred and fifty giant Cocopa warriors stood on the banks, ready to attack them. But the captain, by
making signs of peace and offering gifts, won them over. Further upstream more than a thousand giant Indians appeared with bows and arrows, but Alarcon knew they intended them
no harm because their women and children accompanied them. These Cocopas he described as "large and well formed, without being corpulent. Some have their noses pierced, and
from them hang pendants, while others wear shells. . . . All of them, big and little, wear a multi-colored sash about the waist; and tied in the middle, a round bundle of feathers hanging
down like a tail.... Their bodies are branded by fire; their hair is banged in front, but in the back it hangs to the waist." The women, meanwhile, "go about naked, except that, tied in front
and behind, they wear large bunches of feathers."11
GIANTS OF COLORADO
In 1936, Tom Kenny, a resident of Plateau Valley, a town located on the western slope of the Rockies in Colorado, was excavating for a winter cellar to store vegetables, when at a depth
of 10 feet his spade hit a barrier. Clearing the covering material away, he unearthed a pavement made of tiles, each manmadeand five inches square. The tiles were laid in mortar, the
chemical composition of which lateranalysis showed was different from all materials found in the valley. The perplexing problem is that the strange pavement was found in the same
layer containing the three-toed Miocene horse - upwards of
30 million years old.
GIANTS OF FLORIDA
The people of this nation have a tradition, that their ancestors crossed the sea. They are the only tribe in the U.S. with which I am acquainted, who admit a foreign orgin. Until lately, they
kept a yearly sacrifice, for their safe arrival in this country from the South. From whence they came, or at what period they arrived in North America, they do not know. It is prevailing
opinion, among them, that Florida had once been inhabited by white people, who had the use of edge tools. Black Hoof (a chief) affirmed that he had often heard it spoken of, by old
people, that stumps of trees covered with earth, were frequently found, which had been cut down by edge tools.
De Vaca and the Giants
In 1528, or almost ten years after Alonzo Alvarez de Pineda's discovery of giants on the Mississippi River, the ill-fated explorer Panfilo de Narvaez put three hundred men ashore at
Tampa Bay. His mission was to search the Florida mainland for its riches, while his five ships sailed just off the coast. Only Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca and three companions survived
this expedition. Afterward they crossed the North American continent from shore to shore, becoming the first white men to do so. In his history, Cabeza de Vaca mentions some giant
Florida Indians who attacked the Narvaez party. "When we came in view of Apalachen," he writes, "the Governor ordered that I should take nine cavalry with fifty infantry and enter the town.
18 Accordingly the assessor and I assailed it; and having got in, we found only women and boys there, the men being absent; however these returned to its support, after a little time,
while we were walking about, and began discharging arrows at us. They killed the horse of the assessor, and at last taking to flight, they left us.... The town consisted of forty small
houses, made low, and set up in sheltered places because of the frequent storms. The material was thatch. They were surrounded by very dense woods, large groves and many bodies
of fresh water. . . Two hours after our arrival at Apalachen, the Indians who had fled from there came in peace to us, asking for their women and children, whom we released; but the
detention of a cacique [the Indians' chief] by the Governor produced great excitement, in consequence of which they returned for battle early the next day, and attacked us with such
promptness and alacrity that they succeeded in setting fire to the houses in which we were."19
After twenty-five days, Narvaez' army departed Apalachen. But a short while later, as they attempted to cross a large lake, they came under heavy attack from many giant Indians
concealed behind trees. "Some of our men were wounded in this conflict, for whom the good armor they wore did not avail," continues Cabeza de Vaca. 'There were those this day who
swore that they had seen two red oaks, each the thickness of the lower part of the leg, pierced through from side to side by arrows; and this is not so much to be wondered at,
considering the power and skill with which the Indians are able to project them. I myself saw an arrow that had entered the butt of an elm to the depth of a span.... The Indians we had so
far seen in Florida are all archers. They go naked, are large of body, and appear at a distance like giants. They are of admirable proportions, very spare and of great activity and strength.
The bows they use are as thick as the arm, of eleven or twelve palms in length, which will discharge at two hundred paces with so great precision that they miss nothing."20

.They crossed the river at what was called Phillips Ferry and camped ther for a few days. It was here on the bluffs above the Illinois River about a mile downstream from Phillips Ferry
that the first reported archaeological excavations on the lower Illinois River valley occurred on June 3, 1834 (Jelks 1984). This is a fascinating article by Kenneth Godfrey recently
published in BYU Studies (1989) has collected seven of the known descriptions of the events that transpired there.
The seven stories of the finding of Zeph differ significantly from one another, but the one that is the official 'History of the Church" contains most of the details
that are known of the excavation:
Tuesday the 3rd during our travels we visited several of the mounds which had been thrown up by the ancient inhabitants of this country, and this morning I went up on a high mound
near the river, accompanied by several. From this mound we could overlook the tops of the trees and view the prairie on each side of the river as far as our vision could extend and the
scenery was truly delightful.
On the top of the mound were stones which presented the appearance of three alters, one above the other, according to ancient order and the remains were
strewn over the surface of the ground. The brethern procured a shovel and a hoe, and removing the earth to a depth of about one foot discovered the skeleton of a man, almost entire,
and between his ribs was the stone point of a LAMANITE arrow which evidently produced his death. Elder Burr Riggs retained the arrow. The contemplation of the scenery around us
produced peculiar sensations in our bosoms and subsequently the vision of the past being opened to my understanding by the Spirit of the Almighty, I discovered that the person whose
skeleton we had seen was a White Lamanite, a large thickset man and a man of God. His name was Zelph. He was a warrior and chief under the great ONANDAGUS who was known
from the Eastern Sea to the Rocky mountains. The curse was taken from Zelph, or at least in part. One of his thighbones was broken by a stone flung from a sling, while in battle years
before his death. He was killed in battle, by the arrow found among his ribs, during a great struggle with the Lamanites. Elder Woodruff carried the thigh bone to Clay County" (Smith
The excavation into the "Zelph Mound" was not an isolated case for the Mormons in the nineteenth century. They were surrounded in Ohio with the remains of Earthworks, mounds,
circles, etc. On the trip to Zion, Godfrey (1989:31) notes, Joseph Smith wrote:
"The whole of our journey, in the midst of so large a company of social honest and sincere men, wandering over the plains of the NEPHITES , recounting occasionally the history of the
Book of Mormon, roving over the mounds, of that once beloved people and gazing upon a country the fertility, the splendor and the goodness so indescribable, all serves to pass away
Of the very early history of the region which now embraces Lake County but little can be written. The Mound Builders had occupied this area, but little
written language or oral tradition is left to use as accounts. I did however find the following:
Excavations...have revealed the crumbling bones of a mighty race. Samuel Miller, who has resided in the county since 1835, is authority for the statement that one skeleton which he
assisted in unearthing was a trifle more than eight feet in length, the skull being correspondingly large, while many other skeletons
measured at least seven feet... (Historical Encyclopedia of Illinois and History of Lake County and edited by Newton Bateman, LL.D. and Paul Selby, A.M. (1902))
Mounds at Dunleith, Illinois - Smithsonian Excavation No.5
No. 5, the largest of the group was carefully examined. Two feet below the surface, near the apex, was a skeleton, doubtless an intrusive Indian burial... Near the original surface, 10 or
12 feet from the center, on the lower side, lying at full length on its back, was one of the largest skeletons discovered by the Bureau agents, the length as proved by actual measurement
being between 7 and 8 feet. It was clearly traceable, but crumbled to pieces immediately after removal from the hard earth in which it was encased....
Pike County - Smithsonian Excavation
The other, situated on the point of a commanding bluff, was also conical in form, 50 feet in diameter and about 8 feet high. The outer layer consisted in sandy soil, 2 feet thick, filled with
slightly decayed skeletons, probably Indians of intrusive burials. The earth of the main portion of this mound was a very fine yellowish sand which shoveled like ashes and was
everywhere, to a depth of 2 to 4 feet, as full of human skeletons as could be stowed away in it, even to two and three tiers. Among these were a number of bones not together as
skeletons, but mingled in confusion and probably from scaffolds or other localities. Excepting one, which was rather more than 7 feet long, these skeletons appeared to be of medium
size and many of them much decayed...
12th Annual Report of the Bureau of Ethnology to the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution 1890-1891 (published in 1894)
At Lawn Ridge, 20 miles north of Peoria, Illinois, in August of 1870, three men were drilling an artesian well, when - from a depth of over a hundred feet - the pump brought up a small
metal medallion to the surface. One of the workmen, Jacob W. Moffit, from Chillicothe, was the first to discover it in the drill residue. A noted scholar of the time, Professor Alexander
Winchell, reported in his book Sparks From a Geologist's Hammer, that he received from another eye-witness, W.H. Wilmot, a detailed statement, dated December 4, 1871, of the
deposits and depths of materials made during the boring, and the position where the metal "coin" was uncovered. The stratification took this form: Soil - 3 feet; yellow clay - 17 feet; blue
clay - 44 feet; dark vegetable matter - 4 feet; hard purplish clay - 18 feet; bright green clay - 8 feet; mottled clay - 18 feet; paleosol (ancient soils) - 2 feet; coin location; yellowish clay - 1
foot; sand, clay and water - 11 feet. The strange "coin-medallion" was composed of an unidentified copper alloy, about the size and thickness of a U.S. quarter of that period. It was
remarkably uniform in thickness, round, and the edges appeared to have been cut. Researcher William E. Dubois, who presented his investigation of the medallion to the American
Philosophical Society, was convinced that the object had in fact passed through a rolling mill, the edges showed "further evidence of the machine shop." Despite its "modern
characteristics", however, Dubois plainly saw that, upon the object, "the tooth of time is plainly visible."
Both sides of the medallion were marked with artwork and hieroglyphs, but these had not been metal engraved or stamped. Rather, the figures had somehow been etched in acid, to a
remarkable degree of intricacy. One side showed the figure of a woman wearing a crown or headdress; her left arm is raised as if in benediction, and her right arm holds a small child,
also crowned. The woman appears to be speaking. On the opposite side is another central figure, that looks like a crouching animal: it has long, pointed ears, large eyes and mouth,
claw-like arms, and a long tail frayed at the very end. Below and to
the left of it is another animal, which bears a strong resemblance to a horse. Around the outer edges of both sides of the coin are undecipherable glyphs - they are of very definite
character, and show all the signs of a form of alphabetic writing.
As a sidelight, the enigmatic coin was not the only item that came from deep levels in Illinois. In 1851, in Whiteside County, another well-drilling bit brought up from a sand stratum 120
feet deep two copper artifacts: What appears to be a hook, and a ring. Their age is thought to be the same as that of the coin - about 150,000 years old.
GIANTS OF INDIANA
1879, some Indiana archaeologists dug into an ancient burial mound at Brewersville, Indiana, and unearthed a human skeleton that measured nine feet eight inches in length. A mica
necklace still hung around the giant's neck. The bones, which were stored in a grain mill, were swept away in the 1937 flood.
In 1925, several amateurs digging in an Indian mound at Walkerton, Indiana, eight skeletons were uncovered measuring in height from eight to almost nine feet. All eight giants had
been buried in substantial copper armor.
Clay Township - John Stucky, Mr. Osborn and a few others were digging a grave on top of a mound near Siple's and reaching the depth of about three feet came upon the remains of
persons. The first was a huge being, the lower maxillary being large enough to pass over that of a living person, flesh and all. Mr. Stucky further said that the femur bone was several
inches longer than that of an ordinary man
Mrs. Alice Taylor recorded an interesting story of Pike County as follows: "My mother, Clarissa Brenton Laws' grandfather was George
Parker, who died at an early age in Pike County. He was buried in a cemetery on a knob about three miles below Petersburg Indiana. When they thought the grave was dug, one of the
men sounded his pick down and it sounded hollow; so they dug some more and found a metal casket with a skeleton between eight and NINE FEET LONG, WITH RED HAIR AND
TEETH FILLED WILL GOLD.. This was an account of a burial of the great grandfather of Mrs. Taylor and she was born in 1856.
GIANTS OF IOWA
THE KOSSUTH GIANTS:
Kossuth: October was a month of some excitement in scientific circles as seven strange and gigantic mummies were discovered just outside of Kossuth Center. Marvin Rainwater, a
local farmer, had been digging a new well on his property and struck a deposit of very hard stone about nine feet below the topsoil. In attempting to dig it out, he found that it was more
than four feet wide in every direction. Removing it would be a terrific chore. He considered the possibility that this was a layer of bedrock, but that would certainly be odd that close to the
surface. Further, being somewhat familiar with geologic deposits, he knew that the stone was not the familiar limestone for which such Eastern Iowa areas like Stone City are famous.
This was something else entirely. Upon close inspection Rainwater also saw that the stone was not as rough as might be expected in a natural formation, but was in fact smooth and
polished. Now very curious as to the nature of the find, he called several friends from surrounding farms and they began an excavation. They discovered that it was not a single stone,
but rather one of at least several irregularly cut slabs stretching out over a wide area, yet fitted so tightly together that not even a knife blade could be put between them. Each slab
measured roughly 8'x10', and when struck with a sledge seemed to ring with a hollowness that might indicate this was not a floor but the outside portion of a ceiling. Rainwater
wondered if he had not stumbled upon some sort of buried stone structure on his property. Believing that there might be a way to parlay living other than farming if he played his cards
right, Mr. Rainwater contacted Georg Von Podebrad College, who in turn dispatched a team of archeologists, anthropologists, and geologists to the site. The researchers were delighted
with the anomalies presented them. Firstly, the stone was not at all native to Iowa, but was in fact basalt-a hard, dense volcanic rock composed of plagioclase, augite, and magnetite.
The type of stone used by the Egyptians to build their massive monuments. The depth of the slabs indicated that they had been there for a very long time, predating the advent of the kind
of modern transportation and heavy machinery needed to bring such a large quantity of foreign stone to Iowa, and quite probably the slabs had been laid down before the last glacial
age. It is impossible to gauge with any certainty just how long they had been there. After the soil covering the slabs had been entirely removed, the area covered by the stones was a
perfect square measuring 188 feet on each side. Digging around the perimeter revealed that Rainwater had been correct, the structure did go deeper into the ground. The cyclopean
structure was revealed to be a pyramid similar in shape to one located at Marietta, Ohio, although those mounds and monuments erected by the prehistoric Indians were made of sun
dried brick mixed with rushes. This technique, too, is curiously similar to the Egyptian technique of brick making with straw and mud. It took many months, but the entire structure was
finally exposed, and on the eastern side was found a massive filled in archway with strong resemblance to those of ancient Greece. At the bottom of the arch was a smaller arch,
measuring only 6' to the capstone. This too had been filled in and blocked off. With genuine awe and some hesitancy the scientists of the Rainwater Site began the work of opening the
smaller entryway, wondering what light from the first torch penetrated the gloom of the ancient structure, Albert Grosslockner gasped at what he thought were seven huge and exquisitely
detailed statues seated in a ring around a very large and deep fire pit. Moving closer, he realized that the figures were not carved of stone, but were in fact the mummified remains of
some giant humanoid race.
Could what they found be in fact a prehistoric burial vault for some pre-human creatures or was it a prison designed to hold some freakish aberration of nature? The figures, were each
fully ten feet tall even when measured seated in their cross-legged positions. They all faced into the circle with arms folded across their legs. Upon close examination it was seen that
they had double rows of teeth in their upper and lower jaws. The foreheads were unusually low and sloping, with exceedingly prominent brows. The skin of the mysterious giants was
wrinkled and tough, as though tanned, and the hair of each of them was distinctly red in color. Their faces, still very expressive even in death, taunted the scientists with their silence.
Who, or what, were these creatures, how had they come to be locked in this stone room, and where had the stone itself come from originally? After careful excavation of the site, the
bodies were removed for x-ray and autopsy examination. The excitement over the find was far in excess of the "Gypsum Man" find in Iowa so many years before-a hoax from which the
Putnam Museum of Davenport had never fully recovered from. These giants were very real. The medical examinations demonstrated that there was definite skeletal structure, that they
were organic creatures who had once been very much alive.
One explanation for the mummies might lie in the legends of the Paiute Indians who tell of a race of red-haired giants who were their mortal enemies centuries ago. They were called
the Si-Te-Cahs, driven from Nevada by a previously unheard of alliance of tribes. Did the Si-Te-Cahs retreat from the west to Iowa? Was the stone structure here before and simply co-
opted by the giants? No one may ever know, however it is interesting to note that among the Indian relics held in the Kossuth County chapter of the State Historical Society are three
robes made entirely from very long strands of red hair. We await DNA comparisons of samples taken from the mummies and the robes to determine a connection. In the mean-time,
Marvin Rainwater has had his farm purchased by interested parties in Hopkins Grove for an undisclosed sum, and is quite happily no longer toiling in his fields or digging wells. Click

GIANTS OF KENTUCKY
For three miles the Ohio River makes a bend between Jeffersonville, Ind., and Louisville, Ky., and rushes westward with a terrific roar. Inspired by a fall of about 25 feet. In the center of
the cataract is what has long been known as Corn Island. On the Indiana side the big eddy whirls past Wave Rock, the graveyard of many proud steamboat. In low water the place is
dotted with the dismantled hulks. And just below the whirlpool lies the Kelly property. There is a big spring bubbling out of the side of the path that leads down to the rocky shore that is
said to have been dug by Yellow Hair. To the right of it, going up the bank, is a graveyard, where hundreds of prehistoric people lie buried, and to the left is the Kelly farm, on the river
edge of which are 50 tombs of the same mysterious people. The school history of Kentucky says when the first white settlers arrived at Louisville they found piles of human skeletons on
Corn Island and some are found there now. To the early settlers it appeared that there had been a great battle fought and that one tribe had been entirely wiped out. On the banks of the
falls to this day are found thousands of Indian arrows and spear heads, with an occasional battle ax, and once a stone owl was found that had probably been fashioned by one of the
prehistoric people. This description represents the concrete facts and is the corroborative evidence of the weird tale told by Mrs. Kelly and her ancestors tell in their mystic chant of the
vanishing of a strange race of people: “When I was a wee bit of a girl,” said Mrs. Kelly, “my mother sang me to sleep with the words of this song. It was a sort of a chant in the Indian
tongue, and I do not remember it all. Translated so you will understand it, it was to the effect that a white people lived here on the falls and that they were mighty. A tall Chief with yellow
hair ruled over them and four ages they fought off the red men and held the fisheries of the falls and the hunting grounds for their own. The sun was the god they worshipped, and he
appeared to have blessed them with peace and plenty. Yellow Hair our people called the Chief, who was a giant. The Chiefs or Kings must have maintained the great stature by
intermarrying in the royal family, probably killing all the females except just enough to perpetuate, the race. My mother thought they saved the best developed girls for the wives of the
Chief in order to perpetuate the governing race. I did not ask her why she formed this opinion, and it may have been part of the legend. But our people had long viewed the land from afar
and they determined to possess it. The Chief at that time was Hawk Wing, the line through which I come. He sent spies to make overtures to the strange white people and they visited
Yellow hair and told him the Shawnee wanted to share with them the fisheries and the hunting grounds. Yellow Hair listened to their statements and then told them that there was just
enough for the white people and that he and his people preferred to live by themselves. Then the Ambassadors of the Shawnee said that if the white people would not submit peacefully
to having then fir neighbors they would slay them and take their possessions. At this Yellow Hair laughed disdainfully and said the sun god would destroy his enemies with fire from
heaven and that every man who took part in such a bloody and unprovoked massacre would die a violent death and that the curse would have the effect as long as one of the offending
race remained on earth.
But Hawk Wing had faith in the Great Spirit, that he and his tribe worshipped, and he collected his warriors and set out for the home of Yellow Hair. In some way, the scouts of Yellow
learned of there near approach, and he and his people leaped into their canoes and went to Corn Island. The dangerous whirlpools and the treacherous eddies, with which they were
familiar, they thought would protect them from the less skilled Shawnee. But they did not know Hawk Wing. He and his braves had been accustomed to the water from infancy and they
were almost as much at home in the torrent as Yellow Hair and his people. So that night while Yellow Hair was peacefully sleeping in fancied security. Hawk Wing and his braves were
making canoes and getting ready for battle. Just as the sun was breaking through the murky sky of the east the canoes of Hawk Wing reached the shores of the island. Yellow Hair and
his people were awakening from sleep and were falling on their knees in prayer to their sun god. They were in this position when the yells of my people burst upon them. Many were
slain as they knelt, but Yellow Hair was a warrior, and though taken by surprise, he seized his battle-ax and valiantly defended his subjects. With his single-hand he slew more than a
score of our people. Then when he was weary from fighting Hawk Wing confronted him. Behind Yellow Hair were his wives and children kneeling in prayer and in front of him were Hawk
Wing and his warriors. The two chieftains sprang at each other with their battle-axes. My ancestor was used to war and familiar with all the tricks. As a result, after a terrible encounter,
during which both were covered with wounds, Yellow Hair sank exhausted and hawk Wing’s battle ax was buried in his brain.
“Maddened by the conflict, Hawk Wing turned upon the kneeling women and children and slew them. He and his men kept up the slaughter until not one of the white race remained.
Every single one of them had been killed and the scalp lock of Yellow Hair dangled at the belt of Hawk Wing. Till his death he kept it and it was buried with him.
“Then the Shawnee took possession of the houses and lands of the vanquished people. On the island in the falls is a small cave, which was once known as ‘Yellow Hair’s Bath,’ but
which is now always referred to as the Crystal Bath,’ It is said Yellow Hair bathed in this every day after he prayed to the sun. The cave is of solid stone and a small stream of water
trickles through the top, making a natural, shower bath, where the fisherman to this day often bathes.“Finally, the last of the habitations of the strange people was torn down and 300
years later, when General Clark came here and found Black Hawk in possession, nothing remained save the bones of the murdered people on the island. (From the blog of Fritz
Zimmerman) Shawnee legends say that during low water their warriors went to Sandy Island and slaughtered the remaining White mound builders
In 1885, Professor J.F. Brown of Berea College, Kentucky was called upon to examine a puzzling find, made 16 miles east of the town of Berea, on Big Hill in Rock Castle County, one of
the spurs of the Cumberland Plateau. Near the summit, an old wagon trail cut through a stratum of carboniferous limestone, and removal of earth to widen the trail into a road had
exposed a new section of this stratum. As E.A. Allen reported in the American Antiquarian, volume 7, page 39, preserved in the layer were the fossilized impressions of several
creatures. What mystified those who witnessed the remains was that among these tracks were two well-preserved prints of a human being. They were described as "good-sized, toes
well spread, and very distinctly marked." It was not until 1930 that further and more detailed investigations were performed, this time by Dr. Wilbur Greely Burroughs, head of the geology
department at Berea College. Dr. Burroughs discovered a total of twelve 9 1/2-inch man tracks and portions of others, and confirmed that they had indeed been impressed upon gray
Pottsville sandstone dating from the Upper Pennsylvanian period -well over 300 million years old.
In 1965, a skeleton measuring 8 feet 9 inches was found buried under a rock ledge along the Holly Creek in east-central Kentucky
Evidence found in the tunnel systems of Mammoth Cave indicate that there was a pre-existing race of giant sized humans with red haired that lived in this area.
North America was also known as “Pushkara” or “Loka Loka”
Esotericaly, it’s two “Varshas” that lay directly at the foot of the legendary “Meru”, the abode of Brahma, of Vishnu, and the Olympus of Indian esoteric religions. It is said that “the two
countries north and south of Meru (Swar-loka) are shaped like a bow,” and that “one half of the surface of the earth is on the south of Meru and the other half on the north of Meru —
beyond which is half of Pushkara” (Vishnu Purana, Asiatic Researches, etc.)
According to the Sumerians the title of "Khat," "Kad," and “Gad” denotes gods or kings and their race were called "Khatti" with their capital located in "Amarru,"which means "The Land to
the West". The name Atlantis was only later given as an alternate name for “Amarru” or “Meru”. Based off this information, the name America (A-MERU-ka) is an indicator that this land
was “the homeland of the god/kings of Atlantis”.
In her book “The Secret Doctrine” H.P. Blavatsky claims that geographically, “Pushkara” is North and South America. Allegorically it is the prolongation of “Jambu-Dwipa” in the middle of
which stands Meru. It is the country inhabited by beings that lived for ten thousand years. People were free of sickness or failings. A place where there was neither virtue nor vice, caste or
laws, for these men were “of the same nature as the Gods”. Located in Meru is “Loka-Lokas,” (Vishnu Purana, Book II. Chapter IV).
In researching the name “Loka-Lokas” I learned, through the works of C.S.Raflinesque, A.M., Ph.D., that the antiquated name of the Allegheny Mountains in Kentucky was Loka-lokas”.
And beyond them was “The Great White Land” which was the seat of the Western Atlantic Empire or the “Great Atalan Empire”. The Atlantic shores were called “Locuta”, or “Lachacuta”,
which were uninhabitable due to the arid soils emerging from the receding waters of the Deluge.

Headhunters from Roviana, Solomon Islands
Throughout the 19th century, villages in the western and central Solomon
Islands were frequently attacked by Roviana headhunters, who have for
many centuries been in the habit of making raids upon neighboring
islands for the purpose of taking human heads and capturing slaves;
may represent around a 500 year old tradition.

Peru - Women in a Temple of Death
Archaeologists have long known that ancient societies on Peru’s north
coast killed male prisoners of war and drank their blood in grisly
sacrifice ceremonies. Now researchers have found an unusual twist on
that scene: the remains of six young women, sacrificed in a ritual in
about A.D. 850. Their bones were found under the floor of a mudbrick
temple complex in Pucalá, near the city of Chiclayo. The women show no
signs of disease and had been wrenched into odd positions. Four lay
atop each other in a single grave, and two others rested a few feet away,
accompanied by a baby llama. Most are missing rib bones, indicating
that their remains were left exposed and that their organs had been
eaten by vultures after death, a “purification rite” that the bodies of male
sacrifice victims were also subjected to, says archaeologist Edgar
Bracamonte of the Royal Tombs of Sipán Museum.
Human sacrifices were often public spectacles in ancient Peru, but not in
this case. “They were buried in a ritual space that was surrounded by
high walls, indicating a private context,” Bracamonte says. The burial
occurred “at a time of great ideological change,” he adds, when the old
Moche culture was yielding to a new order, known as Lambayeque. The
Moche buried their dead on a north-south axis. These women were
buried on a careful east-west axis, their heads toward the Andes
Mountains to the east. Ceramics accompanying the women are also
from the Andes, suggesting that the women and the society that buried
them originated in the mountains and came to the coast by invasion or

Ancient genocide / extermination of a humanoid species?
Ancient stone carving that looks like a basket full of severed / cut-off heads
is located on Nuku Hiva, Marquesas Islands of French Polynesia. Could
this be evidence of an ancient genocide / extermination of humanoid
specie? On these islands there are many stone carving depicting short,
large eyed figures that look mostly human in appearance and they are the
same as the severed heads. Around the world there are stove carvings,
pictographs and figurines that are similar to the humanoid specie depicted
on the Marquesas Islands of French Polynesia.
A few examples:
Japan; Dogū (土偶) figurines, small humanoid figurines, 14,000–400 BC.
Southern Iraq – Mesopotamia; figurines, Ubaid culture 5000 - 4000 BC.
Sego Canyon, Utah; pictographs est. 5,500 BC.
Serbia; cross-shaped figurine from ancient Vinca site (no date).
Modern history has seen genocide and near extermination of groups of
humans because of their skin color, religion or cultural location. Depicting
in stone art, a basket full of severed heads can have many possible
meanings. It could be symbolic death of demons, execution of criminals,
dead from a war or possible genocide killings because they were different.
If unusual humanoid specie with different appearance was small in
numbers, they could have been easily killed off thousands of years ago
much like the ancient human giants
I believe these ancient cat claws belonged to the Cat People and either
belonged to an Ancient Priest/King or Shaman...
Peru - Ancient Metal Cat’s Claws - Rubles Wonderings
Archaeologists in Peru unearthed a pair of ancient metal cat’s claws
from a 1500 year old tomb of dead nobleman, powerful Mochica ruler.
The claws were found alongside the skeleton of an adult male with other
artifacts – including a copper scepter, mask and earrings – suggesting
that he was either a priest/king or shaman.
I am always very cautious about dates but according to this report...From
about 100AD to 800AD a mysterious and little known civilization ruled the
northern coast of Peru; its people were called the Moche. The name is
taken from the great site of Moche, in the river valley of the same name,
which appears to have been the capital or chief city of the Moche
peoples. Their settlements extended along the hot, arid coast of northern
Peru from the Lambayeque River valley south for more than 215 miles
(350 km) to the Nepeña River valley.
STONE GIANTS - A SENEE KI WAKW
" Wikipedia & Abenaki legend~ "A-senee-ki-wakw" a race of stone
giants, the first people Gluskab created but then destroyed because
they crushed other animals and injured the earth with their great size
Gluskab and Malsumis
Tabaldak, the creator god, made humans and then Gluskab (several
variants of whom were associated with different branches of the
Abenaki, including Glooscap, Glooskap, Gluskabe Klooskomba) and
Malsumis sprang from the dust on his hand. Gluskab and Malsumis
both had the power to create a good world, but only Gluskab did so.
Malsumis still seeks evil to this day.
Gluskab founded the Golden Age of the Earth by rendering the evil
spirits of the Ancient Age smaller and safer, as well as teaching
humanity how to hunt and fish, build shelter and all of the Abenaki's
knowledge of art, invention and science. Gluskab's departure ended the
Golden Age, though he is prophesied to return and renew it again."
