Earth is a mysterious planet and certain places on it are flooded with riddles.
Explorations of the ancient world have begun to reveal certain similarities between myths and archaeological ruins.
The findings of the Anasazi people of North America and the Anakim of the ancient Near East seem to show that there are more similarities between distant peoples than is believed by all.
The term Anasazi is a xenonym used by the Navajos, which has been translated as “ancient”, “ancient enemies” or “ancient enemies.”
They were a genetic and unique group, culturally considered hostile by early modern tribesmen.
This group ruled the American Southwest before being displaced.
Other tribes made specific references to this hostile group in their legends.
The Paiute called “Si-Te-Cah” referred to a race of red-haired giants who were cannibals, which they themselves were in charge of exterminating.
On the other hand, the Anakim were a tribe of fearsome giants that occupied the land of Canaan when the Hebrews arrived.
The Book of Numbers 13: 32-33, tells the story of twelve spies sent to the Anakim region:
“And there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, who come from the Nephilim; and we were in our sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight ”.
Proof of the existence of the Anakim
The terms Nephilim and Anakim have been among the most controversial in biblical studies.
The origins of the term are less known, however, the findings, stories, and the context where they have been found make it clear that the giants existed in the land of Canaan.
A legend very similar to the one told by the Anasazi in North America.
Early Greek interpretations of the word Nephilim translated it as “giant.”
Later translations called them “fallen” and “overseers” or “prisoners.”
Although in the Torah they were called “Heroes of old “
Apocryphal texts, like the Book of Enoch, shed more clues about the Anakim or Nephilim.
However, scholars consider these texts invalid, as they do not count for the biblical canon.
The origin of the term apocryphal comes from the Greek apo and krytein , which means “far” and “hide.”
Thus we can understand that these books are not within the canon because they are simple mythology, but that they were hidden by some foreign interest .
In fact, current scholars still hold that the fundamental or literal interpretation of these texts is wrong when it comes to mythology.
But what if there is archaeological evidence for its existence?
American archeology is replete with human remains with strange physical features and there is an open investigation of a missing ethnic group.
This narrative has been systematically rejected, including institutions like the Smithsonian and the National Geographical Society, despite the fact that their own explorers are supporters of the theory.
What cannot be denied is that the United States possesses hundreds of strange ruins and petroglyphs that predate known tribes .
A 2016 National Geographic article, where Aaron Sidder showed how the elite of the Chaco Culture had six fingers and toes.
Patricia Crown is totally surprised by the “divine powers” of these beings existing among the Mayans, who were associated especially with important rituals, wealth, and status.
The find was supported by hand and footprints with six fingers on the plaster walls of ancient structures.
The problem is that these constructions are very little known; they are believed to be spaces for underground rituals called kivas.
But it is unknown why they built it underground and were made with a honeycomb structure.
Its location is also a mystery; access to natural resources is extremely complicated, so it is believed that they were based on geographic, geometric, and astronomical alignments.
When the conquerors arrived in the area, these structures were already abandoned.
The tribes used instruments made of rock, bone, and skin, moreover the constructions are very complex to have been made with such materials.
Another thing to keep in mind is that many of the Anasazi constructions show signs of having suffered a war, due to the marks of fire on their walls.
Cannibalism in rituals
In 2000. An article was published in Cambridge University Press about another Anasazi site in southwestern Colorado called Mesa Verde.
There, evidence of cannibalism was discovered in human remains found at the site.
Another site in Arizona’s Chelly Canyon horrified researchers during their exploration.
The Gutenberg project report mentions the absence of animal remains, clothing or beds.
The rooms only had water containers. Another room in which kitchen utensils were found was also empty.
What this population lived was a mystery, it was only known that they went south in winter and cultivated in the valleys, returning north during summer.
The current tribes that inhabit Arizona are believed to be descendants of the slaves of this cave-dwelling civilization.
Most shocking is the discovery of the remains of 14 children in a stone-covered cist used as a warehouse.
Under these, the remains of 4 more children were found, packed in a basket.
Experts are sure that thousands of years before Christ, an advanced civilization inhabited the area.
Petroglyphs in Utah’s Dry Fork Canyon tell stories of violence and cannibalism.
The Fermont petroglyphs also show a figure known as “The Man with the Big Foot,” with a cone-shaped head and six toes.
He is proud of beheaded victims.
In 1911, miners found a number of ancient bones and artifacts in Lovelock’s Cave.
From 1912 to 1965 a series of excavations were carried out where dozens of artifacts and strangely large bones were recovered.
These objects were stored in the Humboldt Museum in Winnemucca, Nevada, and were never exhibited.
Currently, the museum representatives assure that the objects were returned to their tribes out of “respect for ancient customs.”
Obviously, without the pertinent evidence, it is impossible to know to which tribe the remains belong, and the artifacts in the museum are mostly replicas, as the originals are owned by the Smithsonian and remain unexposed.
However, the little information available shows us disturbing data, such as pointed teeth, something common in cannibal tribes.
Also, the size of at least one of the skeletons: 2.50 meters high.
With such overwhelming evidence, is it impossible to relate the Anasazi peoples’ findings to the Anakim / Nephilim?
We know that academics will continue to deny it, but the strength of the evidence leaves no room for doubt.
