Video : Mesoamerican Giants . . . the legends and the facts
Yes, there were extremely tall humans in Central Mexico before the Aztecs arrived.
After the Spanish conquered Central Mexico in the 1520s, the indigenous peoples told them that the great pyramids of Cholula and Teotihuacan, plus the Olmec Civilization were created by giants, who came down from the sky then ruled those cities. The Nahua Peoples, who told these legends, were not even around when these pyramids were built. The Spanish and five centuries of scholars scoffed at the story . . . but in fact, there is some truth to it . . . depending on how one defines the word “giant.” Very tall humans DID live in Central Mexico prior to the arrival of the Aztecs. We are going to tell you what happened to them and where their descendants live today.
Meanwhile . . . a feller jest can’t get no respect. A young man, with no genetic or cultural connection to Etowah Mounds and no professional background that would enable him to fully understand the famous archaeological site, spent a few hours there with his video camera. He decided that Etowah Mounds could only have been built by giant extraterrestrials. His video now has over 154,000 views on Youtube. My first complete tour of Etowah Mounds was led by Arthur Kelly and Lewis Larson, the archaeologists, who excavated Etowah Mounds for three years in the 1950s. Several decades later, I lived near Etowah Mounds for three years . . . visiting the site regularly . . . then was hired by the Muscogee-Creek Nation to thoroughly study both the site and all available archaeological reports for several months prior to building an 8 feet by 6 feet model of the town. My viewership on YouTube is 1/100th the one about Extraterrestrial Giants building Etowah. Such is the nature of our times. Many Americans today are far more inclined to believe mythology than facts. Nevertheless, if the billy goat keeps on butting that proverbial dam, the truth just might get out. LOL
