Man-Eating Giants Discovered in Nevada Cave

"...the archaeologists came to the inescapable conclusion that the Paiutes myth was no myth; it was true.

(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.

Later, an earthquake rocked the region and the cave entrance collapsed leaving only enough room for bats to enter it and make it their home.

The find

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.

Many of the artifacts (but not the giants) can be viewed at the small natural history museum located in Winnemucca, Nevada.

Confirmation of the myth

As the excavation of the cave progressed, the archaeologists came to the inescapable conclusion that the Paiutes myth was no myth; it was true.

What led them to this realization was the discovery of many broken arrows that had been shot into the cave and a dark layer of burned material under sections of the overlaying guano.

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.

But that was not to be the final chapter of red-haired giants in Nevada.

In February and June of 1931, two very large skeletons were found in the Humboldt dry lake bed near Lovelock, Nevada.

More giants have been unearthed in other states...

Evidence of such a race has been found nationwide. Sure changes the landscape as far as benefits of any kind, to anyone claiming to be of America's original peoples. The fact that I was born here in the US makes me original enough in my mind, to question claims by ANY and ALL living groups being catered too by tax payers. Assimilation is THEE only solution....otherwise, it is time to recognize those who were here BEFORE our greedy tribal leaders and their own ancestors.

I was trying to look up this museum to find these artifacts. Is it located at 175 Museum Ln.
P.O. Box 819 Winnemucca, NV 89446.

 EDITOR:  We believe the correct museum is: 

what if? April 13, 2016 11:29 pm (Pacific time)

I left a comment earlier...I don't know if it will be approved but when I stated the bones and remnants of these giants were taken by the Paiutes and called sacred, which keeps anybody from seeing, touching or examining DNA I left out a crucial piece. The Paiutes may have a monetary loss if proven they were not native but I grew up with the Paiute, ute tribes people and they could care less. They are good people that just want to be who they want to be. That said the usual was behind the "sacred" call. You guessed it. Our pathetic puppet govt and organized religion. What in the hell are they constantly trying to hide? No wonder the American Indians consider us a plague? Overall we are great people...we just have assholes in control and we need to stop allowing this.

what if? April 13, 2016 11:18 pm (Pacific time)

I used to live an hour away from Lovelock Nevada and it amazes me how very few people actually ever hear about the red-headed giants which DO exist. Fact: the Paiutes waived their native American wand and declared the remains "sacred", which means they keep the remains and nobody sees or can examine the DNA. Why??? It could very well prove they are NOT native americans...which, if you think about it makes perfect sense. I highly doubt given the new settlements and artifacts found on the east coast, novia scotia and in the Midwest that what we call native americans are NATIVE americans. Hell, "American" is just a word we made up a couple of hundred years ago. The only thing we really KNOW is that we don't KNOW shit about this big old world. The native americans beat the Europeans over to the western continents but that doesn't make them "native". WHAT THE HELL! WHO CARES WHO IS NATIVE...We have PROOF of a race of 13' tall Read headed giants and PC correctness has made it an illusion not to be studied or investigated further. The religious call them nephilum, some call them anunaki, some from the egyption pharoh's. Wouldn't it be nice to KNOW at least a little about them?? Also, how do we know the were canibals? We can't study their remains to know what they ate. How do we know they weren't actually gentle plant eaters? We are basing everything off hearsay from the Paiute tribe who from what I can tell were always attacking "the giants". Its easy to tell history when you are the only one left to tell it.

If you look up the museum mentioned in the above article you can see the following info on their website. Yes the museum could be deceiving concerning all stated but one would think that at least some of the many artifacts would be scaled more towards a giant yet they do not appear to be. I believe there were giants as evidence seems overwhelming yet I cant help wonder about this. Below is what the museum states A series of archaeological surveys of the cave were performed and determined that during its time of occupation, the cave had been a rock shelter overlooking Humboldt Lake. The recovered remains of the inhabitants, although slightly more robust, were not beyond normal size parameters. The Humboldt Museum once offered a display of some of the human remains found at what is known as the Humboldt Sink near Lovelock Cave. In respect for American Indians and compliance with NAGPRA, the display was removed. All human remains have been repatriated. HUMBOLDT MUSEUM DOES NOT POSSESS ANY HUMAN REMAINS OR FUNERARY ITEMS.

Its great that we acknowledge the tradition and myth of our native American Tribes...must of their stories are very real...its a great article ;thank you mr Terrence Aym and the Salem News...Congratulation!!!

it's true alright. the mummy w/ the arms crossed is another find, not from the cave. i have seen the skull(s) compared to modern humans, definitely NOT close to typical. funny how nobody really talks or spends much time on such an amazing part of n. am. history, or should i say ODD!!!

Nephilim Hunter August 9, 2012 3:41 pm (Pacific time)

There is so much more to this story than meets the eye or ear. "Just as in the Days of Noah" said Jesus... Here...NOW, only smaller and less easily detectd. Hint: They still eat human flesh.

Mike LVNV April 26, 2012 3:40 pm (Pacific time)

The Books of Enoch describe the Grigori who are 26' tall giants. Note that the doorways in Petra were 30' in height. Petra is in the Mt. Seir region of the Edomites.

One of the many legends of 2012 is that the race of giants are to come back to earth to battle mankind ! Been hearing that for years ! Coast to Coast did a show on it at one time !

BIG gigantic LOLs at anyone who buys Sitchin over the Bible. Way to do your homework...

Viking JT March 3, 2011 11:14 am (Pacific time)

replying to Judy February 3, 2011 9:39 pm: Judy, if may I suggest, start with "The 12th Planet" by Zechariah Sitchin. It's the first of a series of his books that will fill in ALL of the holes in the bible, that 'greatest story ever sold' (the bible mixes truth with agenda in an extremely confusing and brainwashing manner -- google Nicea Council). Then read "Atlantis and 2012" and "The Lost Civilization of Lemuria" by Frank Joseph Then try "The Giza Power Plant: Technologies of Ancient Egypt" by Christopher Dunn Although Sitchen's books do get a bit repetitive here an there, it does bring a reader up to speed if s/he came in on, say, Book IV The Lost Realms. It also helps one to remember names and events better -- such as the nuclear war and subsequent devastation-by-wind in the Sinai peninsula in 2024 BC. Keeping track of names is useful, for instance, Thoth/Ningishzidda/Quetzalcoatl are all one and the same. You'll also become familiar with the Sumerian language, how words are put together such as DUR.AN.KI (means bond heaven-earth), etc. Now please sign the petition:

Warplover, you've got things backwards. If there was irrefutable proof of god, a true scientist would have to accept it. Evolutionists don't hate god, they don't acknowledge god. Only satanists hate god, because you can't hate something you don't believe exists. So I think the most likely explanation is that these "giants" are most definately not "angels," just large people, and the church is throwing its weight around covering these findings up. I think its hilarious that all the crazy religious people can't conceive of an idea that this giant race of people might have just been a large race of people, not "angels."

Judy February 3, 2011 9:39 pm (Pacific time)

I have lived in Nevada for 22 years, have been to Lovelock and Winnemucca many times, but never heard of the Lovelock Caves and the redheaded giants until I saw it on the History Channel. What a great channel. They are teaching us more than we learned in 12 years of school. That pertains to Science, History and Religion. I also watch the Ancient Aliens and that theory totally makes sense to me. I think our kids in school should be taught the truth, as are learning it later in life and on tv. I believe they mentioned that the Giants may have come from Fallen Angels (Extraterrestrials) that came to Earth and bred with the women on this planet. Also read that the destruction of Sodam and Gamorrah (sp) might have had to do with the sins of these fallen angels interbreeding with human woman. Totally interesting to me. Does anybody know if I am even close.

Bloodstone January 13, 2011 10:42 am (Pacific time)

I heard this story a little different. They were giant man eating rednecks. Do you have any idea how hard it is for a redneck to hunt and take down a giant man?

Editor: Good one,...

oside January 1, 2011 3:55 pm (Pacific time)

This story is on the history channel...very interesting...they showed the actual skulls and jawbones and a jawbone from an average man in the museum-the skulls are kept in a cabinet-not on display...fascinating

Anonymous December 30, 2010 1:53 pm (Pacific time)

The biblical nefilim. sitchin spoke of this. The descendents of anak, the race of giants that were said to have been wiped out during the great deluge (or noah's flood... Which I dont buy) but mysteriously were around again while issac was exploring the promised land of canaan. there is SO much more to this race of people than many realize. I must agree with dayze.

Simply fascinating! Man-eating giants. Now I've heard it all.

Wow, WarpLover is an idiot of the highest order.

dayze December 23, 2010 10:54 pm (Pacific time)

Well,what you guys haven't seen is the one in Italy where the head is as tall as the man who found him. They were reinforcing the foundation of the building and found this guy under it. Also, in Turkey they found several,as well as Egypt they found huge guys. Also,in India in November 2009 they found a graveyard of over 2,000 people whose arms were longer than the Archeologist height AND GUESS WHO CAME IN AND DROVE THE ARCHEOLOGIST OUT AND QUARANTINED THE PLACE AND WOULD NOT LET ANYONE IN. THE U.S. GOVT... OF COURSE THE CHURCH IS CONTROLLING THEIR DATA AS TO WHAT THEY WILL ALLOW WORLD OPINION TO BE, AND THE U.S. GOVERNMENT AS WELL AS ALL GOVERNMENTS AND ALL RELIGIONS IN THE WORLD FOLLOW WHAT THE CHURCH SAYS TO TEACH, OR ALLOW KNOWN. JUST WATCH,THESE 2,000 bones TOO WILL DISAPPEAR AS ALL THE OTHERS HAVE FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS AS THOSE THAT RULE FROM THE TOP AND CONTROL ...ALL...RELIGIONS FROM THE TOP TO KEEP DATA ABOUT THE GIBBRIM, ANNANOKI, CANNONITES, ETC. ANCIENT GREEKS, SOUTH AMERICAN TRIBES, ETC. OUT OF PUBLIC EDUCATION. JUST AS THEY PUT OUT THE EDICT TO SLAUGHTER THE (AMERIKA'S) AMERICAN PEOPLE, AND PUT OUT THE FALSE DATA THAT THEY WERE ILLITERATE AND HAD NO WRITTEN LANGUAGE OF THEIR OWN, AND HAD SPANISH, BRITISH AND FRENCH SOLDIERS DO THEIR KILLING FOR THEM. WIPING OUT SUCH ANCIENT KNOWLEDGE TO KEEP THEMSELVES IN POWER. THEY TOLD THE SOLDIERS TO CANNON THEIR LIBRARIES AND UNIVERSITIES TO THE GROUND AND LEAVE NO STONE ON TOP OF EACH OTHER, AND TO SLAUGHTER THEM ALL, AND THAT THE SONS OF HAM (DARKER ONES) COULD BE ENSLAVED. Forbidding them to speak their own language, they kept their own history hidden even from them. You guys say that group was exaggerated to make a better story, well there are enough actual stories world wide to prove there were giants, that has gotten out, so why would this be such a horror if it was even slightly true? Why? because there has to be a reason that there were tall people then, and some descendants of mixed blood still exist world wide. Just look on the basketball courts, and the football fields, and Nordic regions,and in south (Amerika)American tribes that tower over you. Look at the upper regions of Pakistan where several men have made the list as THE TALLEST MAN IN THE WORLD A FEW YEARS AGO. I MET ONE AND HAD HIM IN MY HOME AS A GUEST, HE WAS 8'9"AND AFTER HE DIED, THERE WAS ONE TALLER FROM HIS VILLAGE. I DO GENETIC RESEARCH NOW FOR 34 YEARS. THINGS EXIST YOU DO NOT EVEN KNOW OR THINK OF. I went to college with a guy that I came up to his arm pit. His name was...TOM TALLBEE... he became a counseler at Denton State School, and his younger brother was..taller than him. Look at Yaou the basketball player from China, and all the tall Russian people... There are photos of tall men in Iraq where super large American soldiers come up to their waists. Oh by the way, the Annanaki or Anu, Gigi, Gibbrum were from Iraq...Get it!! Get out of your small people worlds, and look around. TALL AND BIG IS NORMAL.....!!! AND JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT DOES NOT MEAN THINGS DO NOT EXIST!

WarpLover December 23, 2010 9:46 pm (Pacific time)

Giants were all over N. America and S. America. It has been suppressed. Why? If there are giants, then there are angels. If there are angels there is a God. And if you hate God, then you don't want believers to know there is proof for Biblical accounts. Evolutionists hate God, so they destroy evidence and lie.

David December 23, 2010 7:35 am (Pacific time)

I,m not saying it's true or not. I would also like to see more evidence to this claim. If you believe the bible(which I do)it speaks of gaints in the land. If gaints existed there why not somewhere else in the world.

From the giant in Jack in the Bean Stalk: Fee, Fie, Foe, Fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman.

Gumby December 23, 2010 3:13 pm (Pacific time)

There were some tall red haired people found in the cave. But they were not 12 feet tall, and they did not look like Rameses. A 7 ft 4 inch skeleton is in possession of a museum in Virginia city. A 16 inch moccasin found in the cave is in the museum in Reno, or Carson city. They were big people, maybe 7 even 8 feet some of them.

rudy December 22, 2010 2:35 pm (Pacific time)

cromulent you ignorant fool...giants terrorized humans and considered us a delicacy. all the legends are true but the giants story is being kept from us.

"exactly 365 notches carved along its outside rim and 52 corresponding notches along the inside." Independent creation of a 7 day week? I'm skeptical

Mike Jackson December 22, 2010 12:01 pm (Pacific time)

Terry, you have a slam bang lawsuit against the Egyptian government. I compared pictures and the Egyptians have been stealing photos from your researcher for years and portraying them as Ramesses II. They must have produced a fake mummy matching your photo as well, and put it on display. Wow!

I don't think thats true,and I think the mummys are from Egypt,if someone was dieing in a cave and was being smoked out they wouldn't just lay back and cross there arms and die.It would be cool if the story was true

ALO December 21, 2010 5:01 pm (Pacific time)

There's no way the body shown was found in some Nevadan cave- it looks to me like an Egyptian mummy, evidenced by the deliberately crossed arms and excellent preservation. Certainly not a naturally created mummy, and most definitely not 10,000 plus years old.

Uncle B December 21, 2010 11:38 am (Pacific time)

mummies of the same, red haired giants were found in China recently? Leaves much to the researchers!

See! I told you there were giant man eating redheads in Nevada!

SkepticChick December 21, 2010 11:32 am (Pacific time)

I would really love to see some further documentation on this story - it sounds fascinating and it's a very interesting tale, but the lack of any sort of citation to the actual research, etc. is sort of concerning. I'd like to read some of the actual archaeological reports or examinations from people who were there.

Dan December 21, 2010 9:17 am (Pacific time)

Please research your stories better. The remains found in Lovelock cave were of normal size, and while the Paiute legend may describe an actual event, certain aspects were exaggerated to make a better story...
