20 years ago, I first heard a fleeting reference to giant mummies having been discovered inside the walls of the Grand Canyon and the discovery having been covered-up. I never heard anything about this again.
Recently, when I ran a clip about a man in Utah who knows the locations of several tombs of giant mummies, I was re-introduced to this story. Paiute tribes have traditions about giant red-haired cannibals, who feasted on their people, until the former were able to kill the last of them by lighting a fire at the entrance to the cave where they dwelled. An account of this was published by Sarah Winnemucca, the daughter of a prominent Paiute family in her 1883 book, Life Among the Paiutes: Their Wrongs and Claims.
I hadn’t realized that this story about giant mummies in the Grand Canyon originated in a front page news article, published in the Phoenix Gazette on April 5, 1909. Just now, reading this old news report, the details are so shocking and I will reproduce it, below. The Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC reportedly funded this excavation, therefore, it is believed by some that it absconded with evidence of this amazing find and covered it up.
The lack of interest shown by the paleontology community in the Paracas skulls and the extreme control exerted by Egyptologists over the official narrative about Ancient Egypt do beg the question as to whether our ancient history is being actively covered-up by the Powers that Be of the West.
Author Graham Hancock and others have called us a “Species with Amnesia” but the Hindus and Buddhists don’t engage in a cover-up of the idea of the extreme antiquity of humanity, whatsoever. They believe that humankind has existed for millions of years. What would be the motives of such a cover-up? Some say that if we think human history is so short, that we would consider ourselves to be like children and thus, easier to control.
This video covers the main details of this Grand Canyon case and features an interview with publisher, David Hatcher Childress, toward he end.

EXPLORATIONS IN GRAND CANYON
Mysteries of Immense Rich
Cavern Being Brought
JORDAN IS ENTHUSED
Remarkable Finds Indicate
Ancient People Migrated
The latest news of the progress of the explorations of what is now regarded by scientists as not only the oldest archeological discovery in the United States, but one of the most valuable in the world, which was mentioned some time ago in the Gazette, was brought to the city yesterday by G.E. Kinkaid, the explorer who found the great underground citadel of the Grand Canyon during a trip from Green River, Wyoming, down the Colorado, in a wooden boat, to Yuma, several months ago.
According to the story related to the Gazette by Mr. Kinkaid, the archeologists of the Smithsonian Institute , which is financing the expeditions, have made discoveries which almost conclusively prove that the race which inhabited this mysterious cavern, hewn in solid rock by human hands, was of oriental origin, possibly from Egypt, tracing back to Ramses. If their theories are borne out by the translation of the tablets engraved with hieroglyphics, the mystery of the prehistoric peoples of North America, their ancient arts, who they were and whence they came, will be solved. Egypt and the Nile, and Arizona and the Colorado will be linked by a historical chain running back to ages which staggers the wildest fancy of the fictionist.
A Thorough Examination
Under the direction of Prof. S. A. Jordan, the Smithsonian Institute is now prosecuting the most thorough explorations, which will be continued until the last link in the chain is forged. Nearly a mile underground, about 1480 feet below the surface, the long main passage has been delved into, to find another mammoth chamber from which radiates scores of passageways, like the spokes of a wheel.
Several hundred rooms have been discovered, reached by passageways running from the main passage, one of them having been explored for 854 feet and another 634 feet. The recent finds include articles which have never been known as native to this country, and doubtless they had their origin in the orient. War weapons, copper instruments, sharp-edged and hard as steel, indicate the high state of civilization reached by these strange people. So interested have the scientists become that preparations are being made to equip the camp for extensive studies, and the force will be increased to thirty or forty persons.
Mr. Kinkaid’s Report
Mr. Kinkaid was the first white child born in Idaho and has been an explorer and hunter all his life, thirty years having been in the service of the Smithsonian Institute. Even briefly recounted, his history sounds fabulous, almost grotesque.
“First, I would impress that the cavern is nearly inaccessible. The entrance is 1,486 feet down the sheer canyon wall. It is located on government land and no visitor will be allowed there under penalty of trespass. The scientists wish to work unmolested, without fear of archeological discoveries being disturbed by curio or relic hunters.
A trip there would be fruitless, and the visitor would be sent on his way. The story of how I found the cavern has been related, but in a paragraph: I was journeying down the Colorado river in a boat, alone, looking for mineral. Some forty-two miles up the river from the El Tovar Crystal canyon, I saw on the east wall, stains in the sedimentary formation about 2,000 feet above the river bed. There was no trail to this point, but I finally reached it with great difficulty.
Above a shelf which hid it from view from the river, was the mouth of the cave. There are steps leading from this entrance some thirty yards to what was, at the time the cavern was inhabited, the level of the river. When I saw the chisel marks on the wall inside the entrance, I became interested, securing my gun and went in. During that trip I went back several hundred feet along the main passage till I came to the crypt in which I discovered the mummies. One of these I stood up and photographed by flashlight. I gathered a number of relics, which I carried down the Colorado to Yuma, from whence I shipped them to Washington with details of the discovery. Following this, the explorations were undertaken.
“The main passageway is about 12 feet wide, narrowing to nine feet toward the farther end. About 57 feet from the entrance, the first side-passages branch off to the right and left, along which, on both sides, are a number of rooms about the size of ordinary living rooms of today, though some are 30 by 40 feet square. These are entered by oval-shaped doors and are ventilated by round air spaces through the walls into the passages. The walls are about three feet six inches in thickness.
The passages are chiseled or hewn as straight as could be laid out by an engineer. The ceilings of many of the rooms converge to a center. The side-passages near the entrance run at a sharp angle from the main hall, but toward the rear they gradually reach a right angle in direction.
“Over a hundred feet from the entrance is the cross-hall, several hundred feet long, in which are found the idol, or image, of the people’s god, sitting cross-legged, with a lotus flower or lily in each hand. The cast of the face is oriental, and the carving this cavern. The idol almost resembles Buddha, though the scientists are not certain as to what religious worship it represents. Taking into consideration everything found thus far, it is possible that this worship most resembles the ancient people of Tibet.
Surrounding this idol are smaller images, some very beautiful in form; others crooked-necked and distorted shapes, symbolical, probably, of good and evil. There are two large cactus with protruding arms, one on each side of the dais on which the god squats. All this is carved out of hard rock resembling marble. In the opposite corner of this cross-hall were found tools of all descriptions, made of copper. These people undoubtedly knew the lost art of hardening this metal, which has been sought by chemicals for centuries without result. On a bench running around the workroom was some charcoal and other material probably used in the process. There is also slag and stuff similar to matte, showing that these ancients smelted ores, but so far no trace of where or how this was done has been discovered, nor the origin of the ore.
“Among the other finds are vases or urns and cups of copper and gold, made very artistic in design. The pottery work includes enameled ware and glazed vessels. Another passageway leads to granaries such as are found in the oriental temples. They contain seeds of various kinds. One very large storehouse has not yet been entered, as it is twelve feet high and can be reached only from above. Two copper hooks extend on the edge, which indicates that some sort of ladder was attached. These granaries are rounded, as the materials of which they are constructed, I think, is a very hard cement. A gray metal is also found in this cavern, which puzzles the scientists, for its identity has not been established. It resembles platinum. Strewn promiscuously over the floor everywhere are what people call “cats eyes’, a yellow stone of no great value. Each one is engraved with the head of the Malay type.
“On all the urns, or walls over doorways , and tablets of stone which were found by the image are the mysterious hieroglyphics, the key to which the Smithsonian Institute hopes yet to discover. The engraving on the tables probably has something to do with the religion of the people. Similar hieroglyphics have been found in southern Arizona. Among the pictorial writings, only two animals are found. One is of prehistoric type.
“The tomb or crypt in which the mummies were found is one of the largest of the chambers, the walls slanting back at an angle of about 35 degrees. On these are tiers of mummies, each one occupying a separate hewn shelf. At the head of each is a small bench, on which is found copper cups and pieces of broken swords. Some of the mummies are covered with clay, and all are wrapped in a bark fabric.
The urns or cups on the lower tiers are crude, while as the higher shelves are reached, the urns are finer in design, showing a later stage of civilization. It is worthy of note that all the mummies examined so far have proved to be male, no children or females being buried here. This leads to the belief that this exterior section was the warriors’ barracks.
“Among the discoveries no bones of animals have been found, no skins, no clothing, no bedding. Many of the rooms are bare but for water vessels. One room, about 40 by 700 feet, was probably the main dining hall, for cooking utensils are found here. What these people lived on is a problem, though it is presumed that they came south in the winter and farmed in the valleys, going back north in the summer.
Upwards of 50,000 people could have lived in the caverns comfortably. One theory is that the present Indian tribes found in Arizona are descendants of the serfs or slaves of the people which inhabited the cave. Undoubtedly a good many thousands of years before the Christian era, a people lived here which reached a high stage of civilization. The chronology of human history is full of gaps. Professor Jordan is much enthused over the discoveries and believes that the find will prove of incalculable value in archeological work.
“One thing I have not spoken of, may be of interest. There is one chamber of the passageway to which is not ventilated, and when we approached it a deadly, snaky smell struck us. Our light would not penetrate the gloom, and until stronger ones are available we will not know what the chamber contains. Some say snakes, but other boo-hoo this idea and think it may contain a deadly gas or chemicals used by the ancients. No sounds are heard, but it smells snaky just the same. The whole underground installation gives one of shaky nerves the creeps. The gloom is like a weight on one’s shoulders, and our flashlights and candles only make the darkness blacker. Imagination can revel in conjectures and ungodly daydreams back through the ages that have elapsed till the mind reels dizzily in space.”
An Indian Legend
In connection with this story, it is notable that among the Hopi Indians the tradition is told that their ancestors once lived in an underworld in the Grand Canyon till dissension arose between the good and the bad, the people of one heart and the people of two hearts. Machetto, who was their chief, counseled them to leave the underworld, but there was no way out. The chief then caused a tree to grow up and pierce the roof of the underworld, and then the people of one heart climbed out. They tarried by Paisisvai (Red River), which is the Colorado, and grew grain and corn.
They sent out a message to the Temple of the Sun, asking the blessing of peace, good will and rain for people of one heart. That messenger never returned, but today at the Hopi villages at sundown can be seen the old men of the tribe out on the housetops gazing toward the sun, looking for the messenger. When he returns, their lands and ancient dwelling place will be restored to them. That is the tradition.
Among the engravings of animals in the cave is seen the image of a heart over the spot where it is located. The legend was learned by W.E. Rollins, the artist, during a year spent with the Hopi Indians.
There are two theories of the origin of the Egyptians. One is that they came from Asia; another that the racial cradle was in the upper Nile region. Heeren, an Egyptologist, believed in the Indian origin of the Egyptians. The discoveries in the Grand Canyon may throw further light on human evolution and prehistoric ages. Throughout this article the Gazette refers to the Smithsonian Institution as the “Smithsonian Institute”.
I have many different accounts of these type possibilities. The Iam Foundation which promotes St. Germaine talks of underground tunnels in the Rockies. The history of Atlantis, mostly channeled by Edgar Gayce and supplemented by Tyberon channel indicates that a group of Atlantis left Atlantis just before the collapse and traveled through tunnel system to among other places Arkansas, the location of one of the largest crystal deposits in the world. The spiritual priests from Atlantis were known as Alta_Ra and they left and established colonies in many places just before the demise of Atlantis. One such place would be Egypt. The Ra in Atla_Ra seems no coincidence. In my own opinion the Egyptians were simply Atlantis beings. Their original language was Sanskrit. And they ended up in places such as America’s, Peru, Egypt, Greece, Sumeria.
I first read about this several years ago and what bothers me most, then and now, is how our government won’t allow people in to research.
Did Egyptians come here eons ago? Why not. A few years ago I read about Chinese exploring the North and South American coasts. I personally believe the Egyptians could fly so there wouldn’t necessarily be water craft.
Michael, The bothersome question you propose that the government will not allow public inspection is no doubt disturbing.
Reverse engineering the WHY to find a solution. First off it is common knowledge that if the government wants to hide something a there are two basic ways of modus operandi. 1) Silence, playing dumb like the CFTC does to hide its collusions in manipulating the precious metals market. 1) Setting a pretext in place that appeals greatly to the masses. like Chemtrails, the government plays silent and offers the pretext of Global warming control.
Governments are in place to control peoples activities as well as controlling how people think about things. That happens so the government can sustain control. The Powers That Be, the establishment, logically is thought to be the actual agency that uses the government as its agency, entity, to enact its agenda to the masses. No surprises this is absolutely true and repeats itself through the histories of government.
However because power agendas are always in place and somewhat well hidden behind every government, anything that might come to light that exposes or contradicts what the government has sanctioned must be dealt with. Free and critical academic thinking is corralled and controlled by established ‘think tanks’. The very outspoken US Comptroller General, David Walker, was hushed from the public by being bought out by a think tank and accepted into the higher intelligencia. This got his mouth away from the public audience.
Anything that offers alternatives as to how we have been conditioned is off limits. Anything that substantiates the outrageous truths of the bible must be silenced for therein is the key for true liberty and the high truths that act and contend against the controlling facades of governments. Antarctica is OFF LIMITS because true exploration of it contradicts everything the establishment has offered. Perhaps the oldest scripts in the known world are vaulted away from the light of day underneath the Vatican.
So it could be surmised that whatever is to be known by discovery in these Grand Canyon caverns throws poo-poo in what we have been taught from 4th grade (which has met governmental approval through the US Educational System initially set up by bribe money from John D Rockefeller who’s interest was to develop “….a nation of workers, not a nation of thinkers”. The other reason to make this discovery ‘off limits’ is this would substantiate historical truths recorded, already written in the bible and might cause more people to believe and study the bible., hence undermine more of the establishment ever grappling for more control.
I am always amazed by those who cannot “believe” a thing because it happened before they were born. They didn’t see it so it didn’t happen. Talk about historical, conditioned amnesia. Newspaper articles, firsthand witness, explorers and American Indian history all tell this story again and again and again. It is not a CLAIM. It is the truth. It happened. It was officially recorded and, unless we are in a time slip that I am unaware of, it’s true history.
The Smithsonian took the physical evidence away, robbing humanity of the truth. TPTsB closed off the area so NO ONE can enter, even today under penalty of law. Does this action, alone, not compute with people who, apparently, can’t read? Geez, how frustrating! The institutions controlled by the current Cabal web (Smithsonian is but one) have a mandate to wipe-out all historical information that does not fit their tiny, sick narrative–that 6000-yr box in which they want humanity to operate. The payoff for their deceits? The world will continue to believe it is at the height of all existence which occurred prior to it and the gods of that existence are the very deceivers who promote the lie.
I call bullshit on anyone who participates in the ruse, even those who talk about there being “claims” made as to the truth of it. It’s in black and white. Read it!
This find is only one of thousands that such institutions worldwide have hidden from humanity.
The actual records of the bible undoubtedly open up a vast window beyond the 6,000 year box. Within traditional ‘Christendom’ knowledge, Adam’s advent was about 5,000 to 6,000 years ago and this is the beginning of all recorded histories. However God told Adam to REPLENISH the Earth. and subdue it. The greek meaning ‘to fulfill again” the earth.
So the biblical record does account for existences of life far more antiquated than any recorded histories.
Not to our credit, critical study of the scriptural records are absolutely overlooked by scientific thought and viewed only as fable. If they were to delve more deeply, much history would need rewritten.
The biblical record clearly states that all land of the earth was connected as one land mass for perhaps eons of pre-antediluvian time and it is referred to as the Pangea. So any migration by ancients would have been the practical and sustaining migration over terrain of the Pangea (pre-Genesis 1:2). Genesis 10: 8 records during this antediluvian (pre-flood) time frame (1656 years from Adam to the flood as dated by the genealogies) that after the failed attempt of building the ziggurat temple at Babel, all the people scattered over the face of the entire earth when this single land mass was still in extant. As you mention of legends of similar events and truths passed down through the historical record of diverse cultures so the Hopi and many other civilizations have legends of a great flood. This flood existed and is recorded in Genesis also. The unfathomable weight of that water on the Pangea, the earth land mass, stressed and compressed the tectonic plates and pressurized the sub-methane gasses that existed by decomposition of organic matter for possibly untold millenniums. This was a time bomb waiting to happen. The pressure forced the sub terrain configurations into a locked, un-natural state. However a commensurate and equal reaction to that pressure occurred 100 years after these flood waters and those plates finally gave way by catastrophic methane explosions and produced entire distinct continents. Science, not having scriptural understanding can only assume this division of Pangea as ‘continental drift’ and only possibly occurring over thousands of years because they negate the entire reality of the pressure of the flood waters and this reality of equal and opposite reactions occurring to explain it. This is recorded in scripture in Genesis 10:25. This division of the land masses occurred within one generation, not thousands of years. The entire premise of geologic science is pre-programmed to wonder and guess because their entire understanding of what has occurred geologically remains forever a vacuum.
The biblical record, as alluded to in the second verse of the bible which confirms chronology from other obscure verses, that the known world and earth were ‘ICED’ and God said light there be light which first and foremost was required to thawed the frozen existence and revamp the original creation…that pre-existed. However between the first and second verses of Genesis could be eons of time. Existence of all kinds of life could have existed and there are fossil confirmations far beyond 6,000 years.
Lastly the scientific community disregards the story of the Flood for several reasons. Other than plain disbelief in scripture, they ridicule of the concept because scientists know there is not enough water in the biosphere to produce such a flood. Here again scientific attempts are at a loss to explain things. The scripture clearly discloses that the waters of the flood were NOT of this biosphere. The term “…opened the flood gates of heaven” refers back to how God set up the known ‘universe’ as recorded in Genesis 1:6-9. See science will never have answers because they cannot and will never believe the records in scripture.
Please see the movie (DVD) “is Genesis History” and it will make most of these finds very understandable.
I heard a guest on Coast to Coast AM on the subject, who also believes the Grand Canyon is not a natural “wonder”, but the result of ancient mining by the giants, or by their slaves.
