Several Native American tribes passed legends of the race of white giants who were destroyed. Look at a few such legends, including among Choctaw and the Comanche of the United States up to Manta Peru.
Horatio Bardwell Cushman wrote in his 1899 book History of Choctaw, Chickasaw and the Natchez Indians: the Choctaw tradition. ,, Told about the race of giants that once inhabited the state of Tennessee and with which their ancestors fought when they arrived in Mississippi when they moved from the west. Their tradition says that Nahullo (the race of giants) has a wonderful growth.

Cushman said that Nahullo came to be used to describe all white people, but it originally mentioned a definitely gigantic white race with which Choktau came into contact when they first crossed the Mississippi River. They say that Nahullo was a cannibal, which Choktau killed whenever there was such an opportunity.
The Rolling Thunder chief of Comanche, the tribe of the Great Plains, gave the following description of the ancient race of white giants in 1857: countless moons back, a race of white people, 10 feet tall, and much richer and more powerful than any White people now living here Lived in a wide range of countries, ranging from the rising sun to the setting sun. Their fortifications were crowned with mountain peaks, protecting their populous cities located in intermediate valleys.

They surpassed all other nations that flourished before or after, in all the crafty crafts that were brave and warlike on earth, which they wrenched from their ancient owners with arrogant and arrogant hand. In comparison with them pale-faced moderns were pygmies, both in art and in weapons.
The boss explained that when this race forgot about justice and mercy and became too proud, the Great Spirit destroyed it, and all that remained of their society was a mound that was still visible on the plateau. This report was documented by Dr. Donald Panther Yeats, a researcher and author of books on the history of Native Americans, in his blog.
Yates also writes about the people of Starnake from the Navajo legend, describing them as: The royal race of white giants, endowed with mining equipment that dominated the West, enslaved smaller tribes and had strongholds throughout the Americas. They either extinguished, or returned to heaven. ”
In 1864 Pedro de Cieza de Leon wrote in the “Chronicle of Peru” about the legendary giants described to him by the indigenous inhabitants of Manta: There are, however, reports about the giants of Peru, who landed on the coast in the town of Santa Elena. The natives refer to the following tradition, which was obtained from their ancestors from very distant times.
From the knee down, their height was as high as the entire height of the average person.

Upon arriving ashore, on cane boats, the size of large ships, a group of people of such size assembled that from the knee down their height was as big as the entire height of an ordinary man, although he might be of good stature. Their limbs were proportional to the deformed dimensions of their bodies, and it was a monstrous thing to see their heads, with hair reaching the shoulders. Their eyes were as big as small plates.
It is said that Paiutes have an oral tradition that talked about red-haired white ogres about 10 feet that lived in or about what is now known as Lovelock Cave in Nevada. It is unclear whether this oral tradition existed about the so-called Sitecah giants, or if this was an exaggeration or distortion of their legends made after Piyut was mostly killed or scattered in 1833 by an expedition of explorer Joseph Walker.
Brian Dunning of Skeptide researched the legends of Payute and did not find any mention of giants-sievek. It seems that there was a man who practiced cannibalism and lived in the Lovelock cave. Human remains were found there, and some of the human bones were extracted from the bone marrow, suggesting that the bone marrow was eaten. However cannibalism was a rare practice among these peoples.
The remains have red hair, but this may be because black hair eventually turns red.
The miners discovered the artifacts in 1912, leaving them on the heap, and then contacted the University of California. Anthropologist Llewelly L. Loud went from the university to the site for investigation. It is generally accepted that the site excavations were not well processed and, of course, do not comply with modern standards. But some supporters of the giants theory Sitecah argue that the researchers deliberately hid all the giant remains found there.
