Ecuadorian Legends and Uncovered Evidence of Giants




Source: According to the 16th-century writings of Pedro de Cieza de Leon, the ancient Mantamanian Indians, also called Manta Indians, one of the three indigenous tribes along the coastal area of Ecuador, north of the Bay of Guayaquil, were said to have Egyptian characteristics, and they called the area where the “giants” landed “Jocay,” meaning "golden doors," as it has always been a port and center for trade since the first men appeared. The Manta Indians claimed they received from their ancestors of very remote times, the following legend: 



(300 BC figurine from Ecuador) 

“Ages ago, at Point Santa Elena, a barren peninsula on the north side of the Bay of Guayaquil, Ecuador, there arrived on the coast giants “of such size” that an ordinary man was only as tall as their kneecaps. They had long hair and eyes as large as small plates, and they were covered in skins. This colony of giants put great pressure on the region’s resources, consuming “more meat than fifty of the natives of the country could.” All the giants were destroyed at one time by God, with only bones, skulls, and teeth remaining.


Note: This is very interesting, as the Peruvians have a similar legend of giants coming ashore, wreaking havoc, eating the locals, and God striking them down with a flash of light.

Source:  According to a press clipping, dated Nayarit, Mexico, May 14, 1926, Capts. D. W. Page and F. W. Devalda discovered the bones of a race of giants who
averaged over ten feet in height. Local legends state that they came from Ecuador. Nothing more has been heard of this, but that is not surprising; the word "giant" will flutter the feathers of any scientist into rapid flight, metaphorically speaking, in the opposite direction. So also with a report from the Washington Post, June 22, 1925, and the New York Herald-Tribune, June 21, 1925. A mining party, it is reported, found skeletons measuring 10 to 12 feet, with feet 18 to 20 inches long, near Sisoguiche, Mexico. The Los Angeles Times, October 2, 1927, says that explorers in Mexico located large human bones near Tapextla, indicating a race of "gigantic size." All this, if unfounded, would be straining
coincidence or imagination pretty far.

All this, if unfounded, would be straining coincidence or imagination pretty far. Press accounts say that the skeleton of a gigantic man, with head missing, has been unearthed at El Boquin, on the Mico River, in the Chontales district. The ribs are a yard long and four inches wide and the shin bone is too heavy for one man to carry. "Chontales" is an Indian word, meaning "wild men."





Source:  In 2013 in the Ecuadorian jungle, they discovered a megalithic ancient city of pyramids. "We are personally aware of legends in that area that pertain to giant humans and their lost cities, in fact bones of giant people have been found in caves in the area – as well as in other parts of Ecuador. This particular region was said to be a great meeting place of the tribes, in fact tribes from as far away as Brazil travelled to this location due to beliefs about its long standing importance and strong energetic vibration. The discovery of this pyramid complex establishes the fact from the supposed fiction, this really is a place of the ancient giants and their cities. What remains to be seen is how big the complex area really is. The logical deduction is that roads or paths going out from this urbanisation would likely lead to other cities of the same civilization deeper into the jungle. The team has so far identified several large hills near to the structure, each of equal size that may be covered structures. The reasonable and logical working assumption is that each of these hills is a pyramid yet to be uncovered. This would make it a very significant sized city and pyramid complex."

Conclusion

Peru and Ecuador both have legends of the giants coming ashore, most likely from their exploits in the South Pacific, Australia, Solomon Islands, and Easter Island. They made landfall to inhabit the Americas, building civilizations there first before trekking on up to North America. It would seem that more and more of their ancient remains will be found under the thick jungle growth for decades to come.

  1. Seems to me yet another ancient, often overlooked source, also tells an incredibly similar tale... Genesis.
