In Search of the Seven Grottoes of the Aztec PART TWO

Among the many legends of Native Tribes of the Americas having emerged from the underground, legends of the Ant people who lived in vast underground cities there is one that stands out more than others told by the Paiute that leaves one pondering the writings of Plato.

Many who have described the following and others like unto it, mention Egyptian LIKE people or artifacts, not to mention modern media are always found implying that Egyptians came to America in the past and this simply is NOT true. Let me just say it again, Egyptians NEVER left there own home land and are credited with more than they ever deserved or accomplished even in their own homeland. They were a lazy and slothful people who lived on the back of others from oppression and technologies of those who they miraculously managed to enslave. Egyptians did NOT built the many remarkable structures found in their land, but moved in and inhabited structures from a past civilization and everything built from that day forward were built by those whom they enslaved using their technologies and genius. The Egyptians of the past are credited with way to much intelligence such as the case of the presumed Egyptian Im-ho-Tep. If Champollion and Budge truly understood the Egyptian tongue, they would know it means May He (Yahweh) Increase and they could pronounce it correctly Ye-Ho-Sep[h] or as we might pronounce it today, Joseph who was NOT an Egyptian but was a Hebrew! Enough of this rant.

Who are the Hav-musuvs (A curious legend)

The author of the following story is a Navaho Indian. He revealed this tribal secret which he learned from the Paiute Indians, who inhabit the Great Basin and Mojave deserts of Utah, Nevada, and California.
This native American, who went by the name Oga-Make, related the following account in appreciation for a story on the Navaho which appeared in the Spring of 1948 in a magazine which was carrying numerous articles on the mysterious signs or fires in the skies which were causing an enormous amount of confusion and debate during that same year, as well as the years following…
In appreciation of this, Oga-Make related the following legend which told of the secret history of the Americas which ran its course, possibly thousands of years before white men set their foot en masse upon its shores:
When the world was young, and this valley which is now dry, parched desert, was a lush, hidden harbor of a blue water- sea which stretched from half way up those mountains to the Gulf of California, it is said that the Hav-musuvs came here in huge rowing-ships. They found great caverns in the Panamints, and in them they built one of their cities. At that time California was the island which the Indians of that state told the Spanish it was, and which they marked so on their maps.
Living in their hidden city, the Hav-musuvs ruled the sea with their fast rowing-ships, trading with far-away peoples and bringing strange goods to the great quays said still to exist in the caverns.
Then as untold centuries rolled past, the climate began to change. The water in the lake went down until there was no longer a way to the sea. First the way was broken only by the southern mountains, over the tops of which goods could be carried. But as time went by, the water continued to shrink, until the day came when only a dry crust was all that remained of the great blue lake. Then the desert came, and the Fire-God began to walk across Tomesha, The Flaming-Land.
When the Hav-musuvs could no longer use their great rowing-ships, they began to think of other means to reach the world beyond. I suppose that is how it happened. We know that they began to use flying canoes. At first they were not large, these silvery ships with wings. They moved with a slight whirring sound, and a dipping movement, like an eagle.  The passing centuries brought other changes. Tribe after tribe swept across the land, fighting to possess it for awhile and passing like the storm of sand. In their mountain city still in the caverns, the Hav-musuvs dwelt in peace, far removed from the conflict.  Sometimes they were seen in the distance, in their flying ships or riding on the snow-white animals which took them from ledge to ledge up the cliffs. We have never seen these strange animals at any other place. To these people the passing centuries brought only larger and larger ships, moving always more silently.
These strange people have weapons. One is a small tube which stuns one with a prickly feeling like a rain of cactus needles. One cannot move for hours, and during this time the mysterious ones vanish up the cliffs. The other weapon is deadly. It is a long, silvery tube. When this is pointed at you, death follows immediately.
They are a beautiful people. Their skin is a golden tint, and a head band holds back their long dark hair. They dress always in a white fine-spun garment which wraps around them and is draped upon one shoulder. Pale sandals are worn upon their feet...
Once in the not-so-distant-past, but yet many generations before the coming of the Spanish, a Paiute chief lost his bride by sudden death. In his great and overwhelming grief, he thought of the Hav-musuvs and their long tube-of-death. He wished to join her, so he bid farewell to his sorrowing people and set off to find the Hav-musuvs. None appeared until the chief began to climb the almost un-scaleable Panamints. Then one of the men in white appeared suddenly before him with the long tube, and motioned him back. The chief made signs that he wished to die, and came on. The man in white made a long singing whistle and other Hav-musuvs appeared. They spoke together in a strange tongue and then regarded the chief thought- fully. Finally they made signs to him making him understand that they would take him with them.
Many weeks after his people had mourned him for dead, the Paiute chief came back to his camp. He had been in the giant underground valley of the Hav-musuvs, he said, where white lights which burn night and day and never go out, or need any fuel, lit an ancient city of marble beauty. There he learned the language and the history of the mysterious people, giving them in turn the language and legends of the Paiutes. He said that he would have liked to remain there forever in the peace and beauty of their life, but they bade him return and use his new knowledge for his people.
White-man does not yet know it as well as the Paiutes, and we have ever held it in awe. It is still the forbidden Tomesha—Land-Of-The-Flaming-Earth.

I admit this is an incredible story and difficult to believe but it is not difficult to believe if one understands that man has not progressively developed his technologies since his existence but has achieved these levels of technologies several times in the past and understand that these technologies do NOT come as a result of the peoples own genius, but they come as a result of Obedience to the Laws of a God! And when the people stray from those laws, they loose the gifts they have been given. The people of the world today do not know that this is a blessed land, a promised land, but as a result it has a condition which in turn makes it a cursed land as well, but this is subject to those who inhabit this land and the choices they make using agency. It is decreed in heaven that whatever nation should possess this land shall serve God or they shall be swept off, when they are ripened in Iniquity.  This would be written off as a Mormon fairy tale however the Native American people have always known this and strive to live by it and failed many times, long before a Mormon was a thought. I wonder where the idea came from.

The next story has also been deemed as a hoax, although the reasoning of it makes no sense whatsoever, those who call it a hoax cannot provided the reasoning that it is, and there for they simply resort to a doctrine and vocabulary of last resort in order to maintain the illusion of intelligence, words such as ridiculous, frivolous, hoax etc... This story I am certain many of you have heard in the past, but many have not. I know it would seem a surprise, but I am a skeptic by Nature, However I do not believe as the world does in the orthodox ways, I never have, but I am not quick to believe that which truly is ridiculous, frivolous and a blatant lie. Some times a truth or a lie can be very difficult to discern, and for this reason I have adopted the common sense of “Prove or Disprove” meaning never to approach a thing to learn the truth of it, with an agenda or you will find exactly what you seek, even if it is a lie, Do not seek to only prove, or to only disprove, or you will find the one you favor, seek the truth. Rule of thumb, A lie when confronted with truth will always lash out revealing the lie , truth however will reveal it self and stand on its own.

My reasoning for my belief in the previous legend and the following story are not due to a gullible nature ready to believe any ridiculous story that comes about, but it is because of my skeptic nature and my research tactics which does not allow me to discard any story as a hoax until common sense is applied and the principles set forth above. In addition to this, it is the many evidences that I have personally witnessed and studied from a rather large digital library of the earliest encounters with the Native Americans, legends and such but also and a key factor is my research pertaining to the Native American Petroglyphs and the study of them as a literal hieroglyphs form of writing. Very near the location of the following story which appeared in the Phoenix Gazzette in 1909, is a panel of glyphs which not only tells a history of events but is in fact a intended geographic map showing key features including 3 underground cities of the ancients, including the very undergraound city the Aztec emerged from!




Digital reconstruction of the Map Rock of the ancients, an 11 year project

Two of these cities are exactly where the old Latin Maps made prior to the Spanish conquest, show they were... Yet the Spanish never found them. The locations of 4 of the Seven Grottoes of the Aztec are known by only a few. One is given in the following Article, the others I will but touch upon later herein.

Keep in mind as you read the following, for years it was strongly maintained that the article did not exist and that it was made up and a hoax. Yet persistence of some finally uncovered the original article from the actual printed news paper. There was a brief period of back pedaling after this and then the story changed to being an intended hoax and some have even tried to use the date of the article as evidence of this once denied article, now as a result of an April Fools day joke, lets forget the fact that the article was released on April 5th of the weekly news paper rather than the week prior where in it would have been more fitting. Never did the Newspaper afterwards come forth stating it was a April Fools joke. Until some one challenged and proved the existence of the previously denied article MANY years later.


Another argument was created in support of the article being a hoax in that both individuals mentioned in the article, S. A. Jordon and G. E. Kinkaid never existed nor had affiliations with Smithsonian. Let it suffice that not only did I find both of them, but also verified their involvement with Smithsonian. If the following were a hoax, why has so much effort been implemented to discredit it, prior to the last ditch effort in calling it an intended hoax?


THE PHOENIX GAZETTE of April 5th, 1909

EXPLORATIONS IN GRAND CANYON


Mysteries of Immense Rich Cavern being brought to light Jordan is enthused… Remarkable finds indicate ancient people migrated from Orient 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 archaeologists of the Smithsonian Institute, which is financing the expeditions, have made discoveries which 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.

A Thorough Examination

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 which 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’s Report

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. Even briefly recounted, his history sounds fabulous, almost grotesque.
“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. A trip there would be fruitless, and the visitor would be sent on his way. The story of how I found the cavern has been related, but in a paragraph: 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 river bed. There was no trail to this point, but I finally reached it with great difficulty.  Above a shelf which 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 Passages

“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.

The Shrine

“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 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.

The Hieroglyphics

“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 tables 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 Crypt

“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 crude, 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, a 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. Herein, 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.
