Man-Eating Giants Discovered in Nevada Cave [8 feet tall!]
Salem News ^ | 20 December 2010 | Terrence Aym

Posted on 12/22/2010 1:49:27 PM PST by Fractal Trader

(CHICAGO ) - The Paiutes, a Native-American tribe indigenous to parts of Nevada, Utah and Arizona, told early white settlers about their ancestors' battles with a ferocious race of white, red-haired giants. According to the Paiutes, the giants were already living in the area.

Roaming, man-eating giants

The Paiutes named the giants Si-Te-Cah that literally means “tule-eaters.” The tule is a fibrous water plant the giants wove into rafts to escape the Paiutes continuous attacks.

They used the rafts to navigate across what remained of Lake Lahontan.

Giants roamed the Earth

According to the Paiutes, the red-haired giants stood as tall as 12-feet and were a vicious, unapproachable people that killed and ate captured Paiutes as food.

The legend

The Paiutes told the early settlers that after many years of warfare, all the tribes in the area finally joined together to rid themselves of the giants.

One day as they chased down the few remaining red-haired enemy, the fleeing giants took refuge in a cave. The tribal warriors demanded their enemy come out and fight, but the giants steadfastly refused to leave their sanctuary.

Frustrated at not defeating their enemy with honor, the tribal chiefs had warriors fill the entrance to the cavern with brush and then set it on fire in a bid to force the giants out of the cave.

The few that did emerge were instantly slain with volleys of arrows. The giants that remained inside the cavern were asphyxiated.

[SNIP]

Hundreds of years later archaeologists explored the cavern near Lovelock, Nevada--the cave the Indians had described.

What the scientific researchers found was staggering: over 10,000 artifacts were unearthed including the mummified remains of two red-haired giants—one, a female 6.5-feet tall, the other male, over 8-feet tall.

12 feet tall is impressive, but

“8-feet tall” not really.

6’11” is considered perfectly normal today - that’s only 13% less than 8ft.

We tend to take height in a very personal way.

Another 200 years of good nutrition & we’ll probably be considering nearly 8’ tall to be normal... again.

They’re going to have to revise the text books. Aren’t the schools currently teaching that the white man took the land from the Indians?

Among the thousands of artifacts recovered from this site of an unknown people is what some scientists are convinced is a calendar: a donut-shaped stone with exactly 365 notches carved along its outside rim and 52 corresponding notches along the inside.

“I feel a plea for reparations coming.”

Nope. Just like the indigenous people of Tasmania, there’s none left to collect.

And besides, the Indians today did not do this. Why should they pay for what their great great great grandfathers did? NO reason at all.

The Bible says the children shall not be held accountable for the sins of the parents.

Well, if they have red hair they probably have Neandethal/Scots genes.

So, cannibalism is another practice that the “indigenous peoples”engaged in, and therefore somehow less “European” and more “organic?”. Can reparations and equal protection under the law for this “alternative lifestyle” be far away?

their ancestors' battles with a ferocious race of white, red-haired giants. According to the Paiutes, the giants were already living in the area.

Not all the tall, redheaded, cave men died out.

More here:

WHO WERE THE SI-TE-CAH?

"Note the cranial similarities between this Lovelock Cave skull discovered in the 1920's and the Kennewick Man sketch by Jamie Chatters"

The 'Stick Man' Cometh (Kennewick Man's Cousin?)

Vintage Skulls

The oldest human remains found in the Americas were recently "discovered" in the storeroom of Mexico's National Museum of Anthropology. Found in central Mexico in 1959, the five skulls were radiocarbon dated by a team of researchers from the United Kingdom and Mexico and found to be 13,000 years old. They pre-date the Clovis culture by a couple thousand years, adding to the growing evidence against the Clovis-first model for the first peopling of the Americas.

Of additional significance is the shape of the skulls, which are described as long and narrow, very unlike those of modern Native Americans.

Well, if you consider the 10’ers in Avatar compared to their ‘normal’ humans, it’s not just height we’re talking about. A four foot height advantage conferred about 2.5 times the mass of their human caretakers.

I don't think so. If this was true it would have made archaeological headlines around the world. The basics about the cave are true but the rest has been wildly embroidered into a myth. Where are the bodies? In Warehouse 13?

"Well, if they have red hair they probably have Neandethal/Scots genes."

European And Asian Genomes Have Traces Of Neanderthal

Migrating humans interbred with Neanderthals after leaving Africa.

Some Neanderthal lives on in the genomes of many modern humans. The genomes of most modern humans are 1–4% Neanderthal — a result of interbreeding with the close relatives that went extinct 30,000 years ago, according to work by an international group of researchers.

We have their DNA (mummy) so it’s not like we can’t build one to see what they looked like. Probably already have.

“8-feet tall” not really.

What was the average height of a Paiute back then? 8’ might’ve seemed abdo-lutely gigantic!

Spirit Cave Mummy (Nevada)

In 1996 University of California, Riverside anthropologist R. Ervi Taylor examined seventeen of the Spirit Cave artifacts using mass spectrometry. The results indicated that the mummy was approximately 9,400 years old (uncalibrated Radio-Carbon Years Before-Present (RCYBP); ~11.5 Kya calibrated) — older than any previously known North American mummy.
