Dr. Sasha Lessin and Janet Kira Lessin interviewed Michael Lee Hill on the Cosmic Conspiracy, Tuesday, September 9, 2014 and on May 10, 2015. He said, “Edgar Cayce predicted what I have learned about my Nephilim Mound Builder Indian heritage from the Anunnaki Themselves and today’s top medical science.
“I recently found out I have Native American Indian Heritage DNA Haplogroup X in late 2008, I found out when I met my Biological Mother for the first time in my life that I am of Iroquois (Seneca) on my mothers side, and Erie Montaukett or Montauk Indian on my Father’s side!
“The history channel revealed on the show UFO Hunters TV show that I do not have normal human blood by a Harvard Professor names David Systrom. That episode (Alien Contact) first aired early 2008, I was soon met by the Anunnaki face to face in the summer of 2008 and they told me that they wanted to clear up what the History Channel had revealed for me and my blood anomaly, That I was of the Nephilim Bloodline (Anunnaki/Elohim/Human Hybrid) and I would know what this all meant in the not so distance future. Well all the pieces are coming together it now seems.
“At this time in my life I had NOT yet met my Biological Mother and had no clue of my Native American Indian heritage or what an Anunnaki even was.
“What has recently blown my mind is that Edgar Cayce predicted exactly this! That Iroquois Indians are the remnants of the “Mound Buiilders” of Ancient American history , which Cayce reveals were the remnants of the Atlantians or Poseidons as Edgar Cayce called them. (Enki-ites). This is the revealing of the Nephilim Bloodline through the North America Native Indians with DNA evidence in the form of Haplogroup X which is a recently disovered (1997) Human DNA group which is mainly only found in the sometimes giant skeletal remains removed from Ancient American Earth Mounds, Ancient Egypt and still today in the Iroquois tribe of Indians.
“Anthropologists once believed North and South America had initially been populated by Asians crossing a land bridge connecting Asia and Alaska during the last Ice Age, some 20,000 years ago. However, recent genetic DNA analysis of Native Americans now places the initial wave of migration between 38,000 to 50,000 years ago.
“Genetic DNA analysis can trace the ethnic tribal lineage, and thereby land of the origin, of a human being. Native American tribes contain four distinct DNA groupings, designated A, B, C and D. These groupings are found in Asia but not in Europe or Africa. While 96 percent of all indigenous natives in North and South America fall within A, B, C and D, there was a mysterious four percent, dubbed Group X, which could not be explained.
“Type X subjects were not found in the vast majority of tribes, including none in South America. It was also determined Type X subjects arrived in North America 10,000 to 38,000 years ago, later than the other groups. By far, the highest concentration of Type X in Europe was found in the Basques, a race of Caucasians who live in the Pyrenees Mountains between Spain and France. And the highest frequency of Type X in the entire world was found in the Berbers, a race of Caucasians who live in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco in North Africa. The Basques and Berbers have long puzzled anthropologists, linguists and historians because they don’t seem to fit into their continental surroundings.
“However, independent researchers of the Association of Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.), followers of Edgar Cayce, have come forward and made a few observations of their own. Known as the Sleeping Prophet, Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) is considered by many to have been America’s foremost psychic. Throughout his lifetime he performed over 14,000 readings while in a self-induced trance. Although delving into many subjects, 8,976 of his readings, transcribed onto 900,000 pages of notes, were devoted to medical problems, a majority of which were resolved, often advancing current medical technology.
“Cayce’s readings were always recorded by a stenographer. To do a medical reading on a subject, all he needed was the subject’s pre-arranged location at the time of the reading. On one occasion, Cayce went into a trance and declared that the subject was not at the location where he was supposed to be at the time. The subject had forgotten about the meeting and was indeed not at the pre-arranged location at the prescribed time. On another occasion, Cayce was to do a reading for a ship’s captain who was at sea. When Cayce went into his trance, he realized the fellow could not speak English, so he did the entire reading in fluent German, a language he had no knowledge of when awake.
“Cayce had a unique talent, although he claimed that everyone had the capability to do the same. In addition to medical inquiries, people would often slip in questions about the past or the future. An extremely high percentage of Cayce’s “predictions” of the future have come true. And now the genetic DNA analysis findings of Type X may actually lend additional credence to his psychic readings as well.
“Many of Edgar Cayce’s readings concerned the island continent of Atlantis, the fabled empire located beyond the Pillars of Hercules (presumably the Rocks of Gibraltar in the western Mediterranean), as thoroughly detailed in Plato’s TIMAEUS, that fell into the sea. Cayce’s readings described three separate disasters that befell Atlantis.
“The first catastrophe happened in 50,700 BC, caused by an explosion of gas pockets within the earth that triggered volcanoes and earthquakes, generated a magnet pole shift on the planet and produced a great Ice Age.
“The second catastrophe occurred in 28.000 BC, coinciding with the Biblical account of Noah and the Great Flood. After the deluge, the continent had been broken into three main islands: Aryaz in the east (present day Azores Island group), Poseidia in the north (West Indies area), and Og in the south (near South America).
“The final catastrophe took place in 10,600 BC. There were gigantic land upheavals upon the earth and the remaining land mass of Posedia and Aryaz (except for the mountain peaks) disappeared into the seas.
“The Cayce readings indicated the Atlanteans had been forced to relocate to various distant lands during the catastrophes, specifically to the Pyrenees Mountains (between Spain and France), Morocco (Atlas Mountains), Egypt (where they built the pyramids) and North America (where they formed the Iroquois nation). All Type X locations.
“In North America, the highest concentration of Type X lineage was found within the Iroquois nation (Ojibway, Oneota and Nuu-Chah-Nulth tribes). Cayce also reported some Atlanteans went on to the American Southwest and Midwest. The Navajo (Southwest) and mound builder region (Midwest) also contain some Type X subjects. Everywhere Edgar Cayce claimed the Atlanteans settled after their land disappeared has a high unaccountable occurrence of a specific DNA type (type X) found nowhere else on this planet. This isn’t proof of the prior existence of Atlantis, but we live in a very strange universe where everything is a sign that holds a mystery.
Why is Ohio the place with the most frequent UFO sightings in America?
I think when in the near future when it is revealed that Northern Ohio was/is the home of one of the lost tribes of Israel, That the ones who were known in the past as the Nephilim – Amorites became known as the Mound Builders who created the Serpent Mound and the Newark Earthworks as well as thousands of other mounds here in Ohio, NY, and PA intermingled into the North American Iroquois Indian Tribe, the fact of what I just revealed was proven in the late 1990’s!, well that should bring A LOT of tourist attention to this area!
“‘Only those who have learned to live on the land where the waters run pure… will find sanctuary. Go to where the eagles fly, to where the wolf roams, to where the bear lives. Here you will find life because they will always go to where the water is pure and the air can be breathed. Live where the trees, the lungs of this earth, purify the air. Go to where the trees give, from their breath to you, the cleansing and the purity, to where they protect you from the plagues… Snow is the great purifier. Go to where the blanket of snow heals. Learn to live in these places. You will live through the changes…There is a time coming, beyond the weather. The veil between the physical and the spiritual world is thinning; it is coming back to life…’
“Why is Ohio the place with the most frequent UFO sightings in America? Is there anything special with that area making it such a large center for the incoming Anunnaki/Sirians? Why not some sparsely populated mountain ridge somewhere in a very remote area?
“They Were Beings of Huge Stature.We know from the Bible; we know from Sitichin’s work, and we know from my own papers, that a lot of genetic experimentation and manipulation was taking place here on Earth. Around 500,000 years ago, this planet was taken over by Sirian forces, who later on replaced the slave workers of their own kind with a new species that they created in laboratories by mixing their own DNA with existing species already living here on Earth. That eventually turned into Homo sapiens, or Homo sapiens sapiens, which is us.
“Another genetic line that was created here as well, which resulted in beings who, according to Lord ENLIL, contaminated the whole Experiment. At one time, Pleiadian Giants, so-called ‘Fallen Angels’, descended to Earth and mated with human females, whom they considered irresistible. So, in laboratories they mixed their own Giant genes with that of humans, Sirians, and even Aryans (from Orion), and the offspring became Giants, the infamous ‘Nephilim’. They could reach from 6.5 ft to nearly 15 ft in height, and were the ones who built many of the incredible stone formations all over the world; including some of the pyramids.
“According to the Bible, they all drowned in the Flood, but my own research is showing that some of these Giants survived the Deluge and continued to spread over the world, and once again became ‘Men of Renown’. We also know that Lord ENLIL was furious when he found out that species whom he thought were extinct due to the Flood had been saved by his stepbrother, ENKI. One of these species was the Pleiadian Experiment, the Nephilim!
“However, there was allegedly a compromise made — perhaps we could call it a treaty — where it was decided that if the Nephilim should be allowed to survive, their DNA needed to be altered to lower their stature. So, in that sense, over generations most of the Giants actually became extinct, as these beings now had more human-like offspring. Indeed, with time, it became nearly impossible to tell who was of the Nephilim and who was a ‘normal’ Homo sapiens. Although, I should add, there are still a few Giants alive on this planet, but they are currently residing underground. The Nephilim I am talking about are walking around among us, and no one can tell by just looking at them.
“The spokesman for the secret society, ‘The Priory of Sion’, Nicolas Haywood, has started to come out in public, revealing some of their inner secrets. The Priory of Sion was mentioned in the book, ‘Holy Blood, Holy Grail’ in relation to the Jesus and Mary Magdalene bloodline. Michael Lee Hill has had the opportunity to talk to him as well, and Haywood indeed confirmed to Michael that the Jesus and Mary Magdalene bloodline is the Nephilim hybrid bloodline, that goes all the way back to the Anunnaki, as he put it. Michael found it interesting that Haywood mentioned the Anunnaki in this regard. In relation to my own research, I can both confirm and dismiss this, depending on what we mean by the Anunnaki. Most people who use this term for the ancient visitors are taking it from Sitchin’s work. Sitchin says that it means ‘those whom to Earth from Heaven came’, and that includes more than one species.”
Wes Penre writes: “There is supposedly one way to tell whether a person is of the Nephilim hybrid bloodline or not, and that is to draw their blood and check the CK level. The Nephilim have a sky high level of Creatine Kenase in their blood! We are thus far aware of two people with a sky high amount of CK; Terrell Copeland and Michael Lee Hill!
“Michael has had it verified by a number of ‘people in the know’ that he indeed is of the Nephilim bloodline, and he is quite sure himself that this is the case, because it seems to explain a lot of things for him. What Zimmerman exposes in his book and talks about in his lectures, built on his own vast and assuring research on the Nephilim subject, is that they migrated to America and to the Ohio Valley area from all parts of the world, and settled down there. Due to this migration, we can assume that there are a lot of Nephilim hybrids in the Ohio Valley area.
“Probably, the main reason why the Sirians have the perhaps largest underground base in Ohio is because the Nephilim bloodline moved there. Since the Giants of old are being in liaison with the Ša.AM.i, this could explain why the incoming Sirians have chosen the Lake Erie area as their largest underground base. The Nephilim bloodline is important to the Sirians, even if it wasn’t always that way, and this must also be the reason why Michael was born a Nephilim hybrid. For some reason, Michael needs to be of the Nephilim bloodline in order to perform his task.”
The Nephilim In The Ohio Valley! – Anunnaki/Human “Hybrids” in Ancient North American Indian Tribes!
Technically speaking, “Iroquois” refers to a language rather than a particular tribe. In fact, the IROQUOIS consisted of five tribes prior to European colonization. Their society serves as an outstanding example of political and military organization, complex lifestyle, and an elevated role of women.
Until the 1500s, the five tribes of the Iroquois devoted much energy toward fighting and killing each other. According to ORAL TRADITION, it was about this time that they came to their senses and united into a powerful confederation.
The five tribes designed quite an elaborate political system. This included a bicameral (two-house) legislature, much like the British Parliament and modern U.S. Congress. The representatives, or SACHEMS, from the SENECA and MOHAWK tribes met in one house and those of the ONEIDA and CAYUGA met in the other. The ONONDAGA sachems broke ties and had the power to veto decisions made by the others. There was an unwritten constitution that described these proceedings at least as early as 1590. Such a complex political arrangement was unknown in Europe at that time.
Iroquois Indian are the remnants of the mound Builders who are the Remnants of the Lost Tribes of Israel….The Nephilim!
The Reality of a new unknown human DNA tracing back Ancient Times can no longer be questioned, it is real folks!
The Anunnaki Council of Enlil, Commander of the goldmining expedition from the planet Nibiru to Earth, exiled Marduk–once heir to rule Nibiru–from Egypt to North America in 8670 BCE for his attack on their forces.
Marduk and his cohorts, 7-10 tall, blond and red-haired people, thousands of so-called “Mound Builders” built pyramids, effigies, fortresses, tunnels, energy-capacitating chambers, astronomical observatories and megalithic cities, as well as more recent burial mounds for tens of thousands of inhabitants all over North America, here long before modern Indians arrived.
Map of Mound Builder Sites [Vieira, 2013]
The Anunnaki mined gold and copper and used electromagnetic and sonar energy to move huge stones along many mile-lanes of magnetically-charged rocks like those Marduk’s father, Chief Scientist Enki, developed in southern Africa. Anunnaki sites in North America yielded iron implements, cuneiform writing, incised designs, woven fabrics and evidence of advanced metallurgy.
The Anunnaki took descendants of Ka-in from Asia and of Adamu from Africa across both the Atlantic and Pacific. These Anunnaki and perhaps other extraterrestrials–the moundbuilders–far preceded both the Eskimo and “Indians” who crossed from Asia as well as the South American “Indians”–also descendants of Ka-in and Adamu who came north from the Lake Titicaca area. Some of these giants and their hybrid offspring may have stayed on as rulers of the more recent arrivals to North America, the ones who call themselves “Indians” and came to occupy the mounds of the ETs. Some of the giants had double rows of both upper and lower teeth and may have been cannibals.
Ohio’s Serpent Mound: Template for Cosmic Knowledge
The Serpent Mound, on a plateau of the Serpent Mound crater along Ohio Brush Creek in Adams County, Ohio, is a 1,348-foot-long, five kilometer-wide,three-foot-high stone effigy of a snake with an egg in its mouth. This mound, which dates earlier than 3000 BCE, sits on a high hill beside one Earth’s largest geomagnetic anomalies–where an asteroid had, millions of years ago, hit, shattered stones down to two kilometers down constantly traps and changes its magnetic and gravitational field and generates “earthlights” when the electromagnetic field hits gases above.
The electromagnetic energy channels through the vast cavern system in dolomite limestone beneath and focuses up through the serpent effigy, where it attracted lightning strikes and Anunnaki aircraft; it also let those who meditated at the site see images.
The serpent’s effigy’s rock coils on the ground outline the constellation Draco in the sky above. Each coil points in the sky above to a point over which an eclipse of the sun or moon, an equinox or a solstice will occur. The seventh coil of the effigy serpent rests directly beneath the only star that held its position through the night in the sky–the Pole Star–the one that appears stationary in the sky above as it was 5000 years ago. The lineup of this Pole Star over the effigy duplicated the lineup of the Pole Star exactly as the siting line the Anunnaki placed at the Great Giza Pyramid in Egypt and the siting stones Marduk’s brother Ningishzidda fashioned at Stonehenge in England. These identical lineups prove the same builders–the Anunnaki–aka the Serpent/Dragon People–constructed all three sites. [Hamilton, 1013]
This mound features in its center, an astronomical wooden calendar of wood, like Stonehenge’s stone calendar. Poverty point’s “embankment and structures would fill the great pyramid of Egypt 30 times with Earth.” The site features a 7 foot high bird effigy. [Vieira, 2013]
Link To Recent Northern Ohio Lake Erie Anunnaki/Nephilim UFO Activity!
Smithsonian Admits to Destruction of Thousands of Giant Human Skeletons in Early 1900s
documents dating from the early 1900’s.Proving the organization had been involved in a historical cover-up of evidence showing giant human remains in the tens of thousands that were uncovered across America that were ordered to be destroyed by upper-level administrators to ensure protection of the mainstream chronology of human evolution in that time.
Allegations were made by the American institution of Alternative Archaeology (AIAA) that the Smithsonian Institution had destroyed thousand so giant human remains during the early 1900’s wasn’t taken so well by the Smithsonian who reacted by suing the organization for defamation and the damage of the 168-year old institution.
During the court case, new evidence was brought in as several Smithsonian whistle blowers admitted to the existence of documents that allegedly proved the destruction of tens of thousands of human skeletons reaching between 6 feet and 12 feet in height, a reality mainstream archeology can not admit to for different reasons, claims AIAA spokesman, James Churward.
“There has been a major cover up by western archaeological institutions since the early 1900′s to make us believe that America was first colonized by Asian peoples migrating through the Bering Strait 15,000 years ago, when in fact, there are hundreds of thousands of burial mounds all over America which the Natives claim were there a long time before them, and that show traces of a highly developed civilization, complex use of metal alloys and where giant human skeleton remains are frequently found but still go unreported in the media and news outlets” he explains.
A turning point of the case was when a 1.3 meter long human femur bone was shown as evidence in court of the existence of such giant human bones. The evidence came as a blow to the Smithsonian’s lawyers as the bone had been stolen from the Smithsonian by one of their high level curators in the mid 1930′s who had kept the bone all his life and admitted on his deathbed in writing of the undercover operations in the Smithsonian.
“It is a terrible thing that is being done to the American people” he wrote in his letter. “We are hiding the truth about the forefathers of humanity, our ancestors, the giants who roamed the earth as recalled in the Bible and ancient texts of the world”.
The US Supreme Court has forced the Smithsonian Institution to publicly release all classified information about anything related to the “destruction of evidence pertaining to the mound builder culture” and to elements “relative to human skeletons of greater height than usual”, a ruling the AIAA is highly enthusiastic about.
UNDERGROUND EGYPTIAN CITY HIDDEN IN THE GRAND CANYON
FACT OR FICTION – WAS THERE A DISCOVERY MADE | KINKAID’S CAVE
Documented by Timothy Draper
UNDERGROUND EGYPTIAN CITY HIDDEN IN THE GRAND CANYON – PART 1
Table of Contents
IS THERE A LOST ANCIENT CITY IN THE GRAND CANYON?
The answer is yes. There are thousands of years of history in the Grand Canyon. Some of it will never be seen by explorers. Some of it is passed every day by hikers and adventurers and they don’t recognize it. But what about lost history that was purposely hidden from us? Not necessarily hidden for the protection of historical sites but to hide history because it will rewrite the history we all were taught. Is that possible? Could there be an underground Egyptian city in the Grand Canyon? Let’s get into more of the story.
WHEN DID THE GRAND CANYON BECOME A NATIONAL PARK?
There’s no doubt that Theodore Roosevelt loved the Grand Canyon area. He visited the modern-day area of Lake Powell and the Grand Canyon several times to explore and admire its beauty. In 1908 he declared the Grand Canyon a National Monument and by 1919, the Grand Canyon status of National Park was granted.
Now pay close attention to the dates that I’ve mentioned above because I think it is crucial to the story that I am about to mention. There is a chance that this could be one of the biggest cover-ups known in the 20th century in the United States. I’ll tell the story, it’s up to you to decide how you feel about it.
THE STORY BEGINS OF EXPLORATIONS IN THE GRAND CANYON
In the early 1900s a man named Mr. Kinkaid, an archeologist from the Smithsonian Institute was hired to discover the Western States. His trip consisted of several places, but one location may have changed the way we think about the Grand Canyon and our government organizations that research history. He started his trip in Green River Utah on the Colorado River through what’s known as Utah’s Canyonlands. He had a companion and a wooden boat. Their plans were to float down the Colorado River to Yuma to document this unknown and unexplored area.
In 1907, there were no man-made structures like the Lake Powell Dam. There was nothing stopping them but nature itself. What was printed in the Arizona Gazette Newspaper on April 5th, 1909 is something that I found remarkably interesting.
The Gazette news article went on to talk about a lost city that he discovered after passing the area of Lake Powell’s modern-day dam. I am going to quote the Arizona Gazette News Paper and a couple of links where more information can be found.
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 that 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.
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 that 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 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.
“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.
“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 riverbed. There was no trail to this point, but I finally reached it with great difficulty.
“Above a shelf that 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 of 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 tablets 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 crudes, 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, 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.
