[quote:Anonymous Coward 1284511:MV8xMjk0NjI1XzIyNzU5NTc1X0M3OTYxODlB] For 30 years a giant skeleton was on display at the Mark Twain Museum in Virginia City, Nevada. From what I heard from others who saw it, it was 7 ft 4 and had reddish hair. A Mr. Joe Curtis who owns the Mark Twain Bookstore has confirmed he has the possessions of these remains: July 6 2004 email confirms this: "The large remains that we still have were on display for about 30 years in our museum. There were often many questions about them. At one time we worked with the Nevada State Museum regarding repatriating them as a local indian. After several months of study the local indian tribes said they did not want the remains as they were not "theirs" - they were not indian. The "story" I always got from my mother was that they were found in the 30's in a cave along the eastern slope of the hills on the east side of Washoe Valley between Reno and Carson City. It apparently has some hair that has reddish qualities to it...as went the story. The remains were examined by the U of California also...back in the 70's but never really came up with anything. Thats about all I can tell you. We still have the remains but I have no photos of them. They are covered over in the floor of out building. Hope that helps..." If Mr. Joe Curtis has a giant Si Te Cah... You can bet the State Museums have them as well, and they ain't gonna show them for all the tea in China. A tribe of 7 foot plus red haired Indians of uncertain ethnicity who occasionally sported the desire for human flesh... What's so unorthodox about that? Why would anyone want to cover that up? Sandals 16 inches long? You decide. [/quote]
On the earth there once were giants.”
- Greek poet Homer, 400 B.C.E
Few Americans alive today are aware that once real giants roamed this land – giant red-haired humans. Most Americans believe that the Native Americans were the first to inhabit the North American continent. Yet there were others – a much more ancient race that walked the hills and valleys, the plains and deserts of the pre-Colombian Americas.
Evidence of giant humans – people seven to twelve feet tall – exists in the fossil records, tools and other artifacts recovered from archaeological digs. Giant skeletal remains have awed and sometimes frightened researchers and explorers as far back as the Sixteenth Century.
