There are a number of tales mentioned in Native American tribes about tall and strong red-haired giants, which inhabited the Nevada region of thousands of years ago. In the stories they are described as cruel, cannibalistic and extremely barbaric race of humanoid giants.
This Native American tribe was called The Paiute and they had a name for this race of giants which is Si-Te-Cah. In northern Paiute, this means ‘tule-eaters’, since, according the legend, these giants arrived from a distant island by crossing the ocean on the rafts constructed using the fibrous tule plant.
In the sixteenth century, Spanish conquistador Pedro Cieza de León in Crónicas del Perú finds a story about the origin of the South American giants. According the story they “came by sea in rafts of reeds after the manner of large boats; some of the men were so tall that from the knee down they were as big as the length of an ordinary fair-sized man.”
According to the legend, this ancient tribe of Giants waged war against the Paiute and all the other tribes in their neighborhood. The war was dreadful for the Native tribes and on the eve of their annihilation they joined their forces all together against Si-Te-Cah, therefore managed to lure them inside a cave. Once they got them inside, tribes started a fire at the entrance of the cave which caused all giants to suffocate and die.
The entrance of the cave was sealed off by the tribes until 1886 when John T. Reid, a mining engineer, intrigued by stories of Native tribes, went into the cave and although he could not dig by himself, he spread the story.
Sadly, the attention was caught by a company established by miners David Pugh and James Hart and due to the fact guano deposits were discovered inside. They started excavating the valuable resource in 1911, but in that process, any kind of artifacts that might have been discovered was almost certainly overlooked or lost.
Nonetheless, after the exterior layer of guano was mined, fascinating objects started to surface. This prompted a proper excavation being conducted in 1912 by the University of California, followed by another one in 1924. Reports informed about a huge number of artifacts acquired, many of them being completely astounding.
Probably one of the most remarkable findings within this cave, was several 15 inches long sandals that revealed indications of being used. Allegedly, other extraordinarily larger items were recovered, but have since been secured away in museum warehouses and non-public collection.
The only piece of evidence that can be witnessed at present is an enormous palm print, embedded on a boulder inside the Lovelock Cave.
The second excavation that took place in the cave exposed many other disturbing discoveries. In 1931, based on an article posted in the Nevada Review-Miner, a couple of huge skeletons were found buried in a dry lake bed near Lovelock, Nevada. The extra-large remains measured 8.5, respectively, 10 feet in height and was found on them reddish hair.
There are numerous speculations circling around the scientific communities that these vicious giants could in fact be the biblical Nephilim, the forsworn offspring of the ‘Sons of God’ with the ‘daughters of men.’ If this happens to be correct, we can presume that these mummies will probably be hidden from the public in order to keep this history secret.
