Ancient Giants In Ecuador Were Killed By Fire From The Sky – Indian Legends Reveal

When the Spaniards discovered curious, large ancient bones and odd markings on rocks, they knew something remarkable had taken place in Ecuador in the distant past.

Juan de Olmos, lieutenant governor at Puerta Viejo ordered excavations at the valley where Indians said giants had been killed.

From what is known, large ribs, various bones and teeth were discovered at the site. Whether these were truly the remains of ancient giants is unknown, but the Spaniards discovered marks from thunderbolts in the rocks.

In 1553, Pedro Cieza de Leon published a report about the giants of Guayaquil. He wrote that the “natives tell, from what they heard through their forefathers, who heard and had it from far back, that there came by sea in rafts of reeds after the manner of large boats, some men who were so tall that from knee down they were as big as the full length of an ordinary fair-sized man, and the limbs were in proportion to their bodies, so misshapen that it was monstrous to look at their heads, as large as they were, and with the hair that came down on the shoulders.”When the Spaniards discovered curious, large ancient bones and odd markings on rocks, they knew something remarkable had taken place in Ecuador in the distant past.

In his account Pedro Cieza de Leon also tells that these huge men were dressed in skins of animals, had no beards and came without women.

Did the Indians of Guayaquil really encounter giants or perhaps people of large stature who had come from across the seas? We know that Vikings visited America and the description provided by Pedro Cieza de Leon reminds of Norse explorers, but there are no records Vikings ever visited Ecuador, or are there?

According to Pedro Cieza de Leon, these giant men built a village, hunted, but they couldn’t find any women because none of the local females were of their size.

Conflicts between the Indians and giants were frequent, but the natives were afraid of attacking these large foreigners who had come to take their country.

Then something happened that ended the Indians’ nightmare. Cieza writes that according to the account handed down by the natives, an angel in a mass of fire descended from heavens and killed the giants.It seems like a description of a cosmic object that wiped out the giants. Scholars have suggested this unusual destruction witnessed by the natives was caused by the fall of some meteorite of unusual size and brilliancy. It’s also possible some kind of electrical phenomena such as ball lightning.

Interestingly, as Ancient Pages mentioned in another article, Choctaw Indians of Mississippi have a very interesting ancient legend about how their ancestors emerged from the Nanih Waiya Cave Mound. The Indians tell of similar encounters with a race of red- and blond-haired, white-skinned giants.

These huge men were dressed in thick skin and carried weapons such as axes and “sharp clubs”. It almost sounds like the Choctaw encountered foreign invaders from across the sea.

Did the Indians of Guayaquil and Mississippi have the misfortune of meeting the same race of giant people from across the sea?
