The Red Haired Mummies of Canary Islands
The Red Haired Mummies of the Canary Islands by Mary Sutherland

" One fact about which we may be certain is that there existed a relation in ancient times between the people of
the Canarian origin and the inhabitants of America."
Leading historical scholar, Professor Lopez Herrera,

Among his evidence to back this is the inscription of a strange artifact found in Ohio, "The Grove Creek Stone'.
Its characters correspond almost exactly to written carvings found on the Canary Island of Hierro.

A comparison of petroglyphic signs in prehistoric North America and the Canary Islands also supports this
relationship. Many of the individual signs, such as the inverted barbell-like figure (expressing the highest and
lowest position of the sun), occur on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean and signify the same meanings.

This same barbell object was found by Doug Gossage at the Rock Lake Wisconsin Limnatis Pyramid. `

Off the coast of West Africa lie the Canary Islands - this region became home to  aboriginal people we know
today as Guanches. These aborigines  spoke the Berber language until after the Spanish conquest in the 15th
century. I have also been able to trace the Berber language from The Land of Caine, through Africa, where they
became known as the 'Beaker People' , up through Europe,including Egypt, Middle East and Australia. ( I have
no doubts that the Berber Language extends much further than my research, but at the time, I can only provide
information that I have personally researched.)

Another connection with Egypt, North America and Mesopotamia is the Canary Islands' Stepped Pyramids. The
Guanches built several small step pyramids, using an east-west alignment and used the same model as
those found in ancient Egypt and in Mesopotamia.

A Red-Haired Giant Connection having dolichocephalic skulls (Elongated) , fair-featured with blond or red-hair.
Males usually were 6 foot and over, with the women being described as to approximately 6 foot in their
adulthood. Women were described as very beautiful and Spanish Gentlemen often used to take their wives
among the population. The belief that these Canarians lived to be of a very old age, led Columbus and others
in a search for the 'Fountain of Youth.'

Religions similarities  connected the Guanche to North America and Egypt  through not only the Dog Worship
but Sun Worship
Guanche were known to have worshipped Mencey, the God of the Sun and of Higher Thought .  The First
Egyptian Pharaohs were given the name MENes, after the God of the Sun and of Higher Thought.  Their people
were called Mesuntiu.
through the study of Mencey, Egypt and the Canary Islands you can find a connecting link through their Sun
Worship.  The Guanche were known to have worshipped the God of the Sun though Mencey.  The Egyptian
pharaohs called themselves Menes, which meant the revelation of God through the Sun. Throughout Ancient
Egyptian history  there are references to men of 'other lands' who were 'Gods of Wisdom' before migrating to

Dogs were domesticated and worshiped by the people of Egypt, of Aztalan and the Canary Islands.  These
animals were provided with ritual funerals, including their grave goods were found in the form of intentionally
broken pottery symbolizing mourning and the end of physical existence.  Evidence of Dog Worship are also
evidenced at Aztalan's sister city, Angel Mounds, located on the banks of the Ohio River in southern Indiana.
The Cahokians were also found to share this same tradition and reverence towards the cainine.


Mesentiu were the people that established Egypt's FIRST ROYAL FAMILY  -  This event is depicted in Egypt's Art
, where 'The Falcon Sun God, Horus,Wields a harpoon from his boat against a hippopotamus, the symbol for
the pre-dynastic people of Egypt.

One of these God Kings GOD was THOTH, known to the Egyptians as  Djeheuty, whose counsel was always
staunch supporter of Horus, the son of Osiris and Isis. He always maintained that "Horus's claim to the throne
was "just and that the murderous Set had no right to the Kingship of Egypt".

According to traditions, Thoth, (Menes) is described as the God of the West taking his people, after the Great
Flood, to the Eastern Land of Egypt.  In time he became known as the God of Wisdom and Writing.  Egyptian
Records show that a catastrophe occurred in the Land of the West  which darkened the sun and disturbed the
gods, but Thoth led his people across the sea to the Eastern country of Egypt.  The Leyden Papyrus depicts
Thoth  as the "Controller of the Flood," and the Theban Recension includes the Island of Flame written about  in
the Flood story. (Papyrus of Ani)

From the Book of the Dead, Thoth rules the "WESTERN DOMAIN," and by the end of the New Kingdom he is
called "LORD OF THE WEST". (Seth, 1912) Thoth is depicted standing in "sht htp' ("field of peace", Grecian
"Elysian Fields"), holding his writing quill and palette.(Some claim Thoth to be a King of Atlantis).

Frank Joseph, "The Lost Pyramids of Rock Lake" , connects the Mesuntiu people to the root word Mesnet,
which means 'Foundry'. This, in my opinion, links these people to the seafaring  people of Caine, who were
known for their metal working and the Smoky Mountain Gods who maintained their foundries inside the
hollows of mountains.

Proto-Guanche Explorations to the New World

The  Proto-Guanche were noted seafarers in classical and ancient times. The Asiatic Indians of Central and
South America, traditionally referred to as the indigenous peoples of the New World, worshiped the 'Feathered
Serpent Quetzalcoatl, referring to the plumed serpent-god of the heavens which would return in the form of a
white, bearded man in the year 1519 CE (by the calendar of the Europeans of the time); This date was
venerated by the Aztecs in Tenochtitlan as an eschatological date and preparations were made by the court
astrologers of the palace of Montezuma for their return. Other tribes of the New World in both Central and South
America also venerated these wise, bearded white men for their previous incarnations and "flying canoes"
which had brought culture, peace and prosperity to these regions in the remote past.

When Columbus and the Europeans who followed in his wake landed in the Americas, they were welcomed
and initially worshiped as gods, believing them to be the same people as the legendary founders of their

"In 1492, Columbus searched the ocean blue'
To see if the old maps were true'

Columbus searched old maps and followed up on  oral reports of ancient world seafaring travelers. When he
heard the story of an old chief called Tirajana, he followed up by visiting him. Through a Spanish translator, he
repeated to Columbus the stories of their voyages , but also quite importantly told him about a great underwater
stream  (current?) that carried their ships directly from their island home across the sea back  to the great land
in the West (North America). Tirajana claimed that his ancestors were far greater sailors than the Spaniards,
because they traveled regularly to the end of the ocean, over the horizon of the sunset to a great land. (you can
find the name Tirajana at a city Park in Lake Mills, home of Rock Lake, only miles from Aztalan.)  


We  find another commonality through the  root word CAN found in the words CAN ine, CAN ary, CAN ary
Islands  and CAN aanite, of who can be traced  to North America during ancient times.

Most people think that the name CANARY (canari) originated from the  discovery of the yellow birds that
populated the Canary Islands. Not true - According to the  Latin definition of Canari , it means  'DOG', (CANine).  
When Roman ships visited the Canary Islands in the Second Century BC , they found the occupants to be
worshippers of the Dog. Being so, they came to calling them 'Dog People'.  The islanders  veneration of the dog
resembled the  Egyptians belief in ANUBIS, the dog headed spirit guide who led the souls from the material
world , through the veil, to the other side into the afterlife.  (In Pharaonic Egypt, at Cynopolis, or 'DOG CITY' ,
literally tens of thousands of mummified dogs were found buried.)  These type of dog rituals can also be found
in Wisconsin at Aztalan.

Following is some  information I received from a member of our ancient mysteries study group. This
information ties in the Red-Haired Caucasian Race of Giants to the Canary Islands and North America through
the  reverence of dogs.
