The Ancient Legend of Si-Te-Cah ~ The Red Headed Giants of Toquima Cave.

19 Φεβρουαρίου 2015 22:05:00

I like to start by saying that the Giants of legends were very real. There are many names that we call them Jötunn, Pursar, Kanai, Canaanaites, Kelts, Fomorians, Titan Pharaoh, Geant, Nephilim, Annunaki, Goliath, Yeti, Sasquatch and even Bigfoot. I believe as many races of us there were races of them. I also believe that there is always balance within the circle and many views can be seen from different points around the same circle. I would like to share two different views of the same story, this being the first. The second I will put in a separate note that is from the Giants point of view on what happened to them.

Natives from North and Southwest all the way to Central and South America have shared stories that have passed from generation to generation. Stories of ancestors that fought wars with this ancient race of Red Headed Giants. Burial sites and remains of the large giant race have been found  in Virginia, New York, Michigan, Illinois, Tennessee, Arizona, Montana, Idaho, Nevada, California, Hawaii and Alaska in just the United States alone. Each Continent has their own legends and historic findings. Yet there is such a hush. Shhh. I ask you why would that be? Why do we continue to keep history hidden.

Today I will share one most backed by fact. The Redheaded Giants from Lovelock, Nevada were known as Si-Te-Cah by The Paiute Nation. Si-Te-Cah means Tule Eater. They got this name because they often stole Paiute women that were collecting tule by the lake and then would escape the Paiute by retreating on their boats of woven tule. Si-Te-Cah’s were also known as Spirit Man, Spirit Men, Saiduka, Sai’i and Inga Mojis which means “Red Beard” Sarah Winnemucca Hopkin’s, Paiute Chief Winnemucca’s daughter shared the story passed down to her. The Paiute Nation were tired of the constant battles with the Si-Te-Cah that lived in and near the Toquima Cave. She tells how they had kidnapped and ate her people and how they banded together with neighboring tribes to rid Si-Te-Cah’s once and for all. The Paiute’s triumphed killing many in battle, a few remaining Si-Te-Cah’s were chased into their cave. With the cave surrounded the Paiute demanded them to come out, when the Si-Te-Cah refused they blocked the entrance with brush and set it ablaze. Those who didn’t die from smoke tried to escape but were overtook with ablaze of arrows. Many years later an Earthquake blocked the entrance of the cave with large boulders and there it sat for many seasons. With the many seasons the Toquima Cave took on many names like Horseshoe Cave named for its U shaped interior, Bat Cave for the many bats that took residents within, later Sunset Guano Cave, Indian Cave in honor of the Paiute’s and now it is known as Lovelock Cave.

In the late 1800’s the story of the Giants at Bat Cave was shared with John Reed, a local mining engineer of Lovelock. He was taken to the cave by the local Paiute’s. He was interested in the Guano for making Gun Powder so the cave was opened up. To the surprise of the locals the Paiute’s legend was proven true, many arrows points and several mummies (partial and whole) were unearthed. As the many feet of bat guano began to diminish ancient artifacts dating back to 1500 BC began to surface and it was at this point the department of Archaeology from the University of California swooped in to claim the remaining 10,000 or so artifacts. They declared the site as the most significant finds of the Century. Artifacts included 100’s of Beads, Tools, Stones with writing, Snares made of Tule, Duck Decoys, Pots, Woven Baskets and the most interesting an ancient circular calendar with 365 notches carved along the entire outer circle with 52 carved notches within the inside rim. Locals claim that the remains of the Sit-Te-Cah are still stored in the backroom of a local museum in Nevada.

Want to see these mummies for yourself? You may get the run-around or you may get lucky. The Humboldt County Museum in Winnemucca has one of the skulls and has allowed certain visitors into the backroom for a peek. What you can see on display is one jawbone and one misshapen skull. One last note on the Si-Te-Cah On June 19, 1931 The Nevada Review-Miner newspaper, reported the findings of two very large skeletons in the Humboldt dry lake bed, near Lovelock.  One was of an 8 1/2 foot Female wrapped in gum-covered fabric and the other a 10 foot Male.
