Did Giant humans roam Ancient America in the past? Did the Native American’s have a royal class of giant rulers entombed in massive burial mounds?

The Iroquois, the Osage, the Tuscaroras, the Hurons, the Omahas, and many other North American Indians all speak of giant men who once lived and roamed in the territories of their forefathers. All over what is now the U.S. are traditions of these ancient giants.” 1

The historical record certainly seems to support this reality. Over a two hundred year period, more than 1000 accounts of seven-foot and taller skeletons have been reported unearthed from ancient burial sites in North America. Newspaper accounts, town and county histories, letters, scientific journals, diaries, photos and Smithsonian ethnology reports have carefully documented this. These skeletons have been reported from coast to coast in burial chambers, stone crypts, caves, ancient battlefields and massive mounds. Strange anatomic anomalies such as double rows of teeth, jawbones so large as to be fit over the face of the finder, and elongated skulls, were documented in virtually every state. Smithsonian scientists identified at least 17 skeletons that stood at over seven feet in their annual reports, including one example that was 8 feet tall, and a skull with a 36-inch circumference (an average human skull has a circumference of about 20 inches). The Smithsonian Institution is mentioned dozens more times as the recipient of enormous skeletons from across the United States.

In late 2014, an article from a satirical website claimed that a Supreme Court ruling forced the Smithsonian Institution to admit to the historic destruction of giant skeletons. It was published not long after our Search for the Lost Giants TV show that aired on History Channel. The headline read: “Smithsonian Admits to Destruction of Thousands of Giant Human Skeletons in Early 1900s.” 2 The article was convincing, and this apparent exposé of the National Museum hit a chord with people. Right away, we were inundated with emails from people believing the story was real. In reality, if such a story were true, it would surely be front-page worldwide news. However, when an Internet post is mentioning a startling find and not verifying any of the professionals involved, or real organizations or institutions they belong to, one can quickly conclude that it is a misrepresentation of facts or an outright lie. Maybe someday, however, the Smithsonian will admit to the irony of this story.

The over-willingness to believe seems to be the culprit for such stories gaining life. This is the reality we have had to deal with when researching the strange case of the North American giants, as hoaxes and exaggerations were often reported as truth. This is further complicated by the lack of physical evidence, and the moral and ethical implications of investigating human remains. When the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) was passed in 1990, any remaining giant skeletons and bones were removed from public display and buried according to the traditions of individual tribes.

We often get asked: “where are the bones?” and we reply: “ask the Smithsonian and the Native Americans.”

Even with these obstacles, we have done our best to chase down every account to the end and to be as impartial as possible. The book Giants on Record, is not trying to be a long scientific paper but rather an assemblage of data and documents that have been hidden in libraries and local historical societies, and quietly shunned by orthodox anthropology and archaeology for over a century. The following accounts are part of this forgotten legacy, which carry implications that may someday shake the foundations of American academia.


Most of the reports we have uncovered are from well-known newspapers such as The Washington Post and The New York Times, but we begin our analysis with this account from The Worthington Advance (November 18, 1897, pg.3) that describes the ethnological work of the Smithsonian Institution’s Division of Eastern Mounds, and quotes the Director of the Bureau of Ethnology at the time, John Wesley Powell. The image below accompanies the news report,

It is officially recorded that agents of the Bureau of Ethnology have explored more than 2,000 of these mounds. Among the objects found in them were pearls in great numbers and some of very large size… It is a matter of official record that in digging through a mound in Iowa the scientists found the skeleton of a giant, who, judging from actual measurement, must have stood seven feet six inches tall when alive. The bones crumbled to dust when exposed to the air. Around the neck was a collar of bear’s teeth and across the thighs were dozens of small copper beads, which may have once adorned a hunting skirt.”…

The Smithsonian Institution is continually linked to giant skeletons, or at least the lack of them. Most of the reports end in something like this: “The bones were shipped to the Smithsonian Institution for further study.” This ongoing problem of the “missing bones” has become a matter of legend, as there are dozens of reports of the Smithsonian receiving artifacts and giant skeletons. Today, however, they deny their existence. We investigate this thoroughly in our book, and conclude that a cover-up may have been instigated in the late 1800s because it did not fit in with their new ideologies of ‘Manifest Destiny’ and ‘Evolution.’ Although the giants were sidelined in the early stages of scientific discovery, they were, thanks to earlier explorers of America, already in the written record.

    Call me dubious. What would be the motivation for keeping this a secret? And how many people with knowledge of this would not reveal it to anyone else?

  2.' Joel Hillary says:

    Isaiah Morrisseau share this with marshal.

  3.' Aiden Nedia Ashlie says:

    Because giant humans give proof of the realities of a people predating Sumerian and Egyptian periods in which we were much more evolved, consciously, and just because there aren’t any giant beings walking side by side with us does not mean they are exstict. They are living in higher dimensions of consciousness, in our sun, our moon, the center of the earth and the inter-dimensional spaces all around us. They are protecting us in more ways then we may know but ensuring to the greatest exstint that we evolve consciously on our own. For now however, they watch over us for indeed we are in an Ascension Process. But one day soon they may tune their frequencies to that of the 3rd dimension in which we will see giants open up the skies in order to maintain that protection given the state of the world. We must search within ourselves and find unity in source consciousness, we must find the Love of God in our every being.

    Maybe humans were the aliens that came to earth and destroyed all the Giants so we can have the planet for ourselves just like in avatar but without a happy ending.

    Roberta Hudson that don’t make any sense. Hopefully Noone is listening to your banter.

    •' Debra Clopton says:

      Actually, it does make sense. Maybe not plausible, but certainly possible. If you take into consideration how many ancient artifacts we as a species have found, ridiculed, then realized ‘ Hey, this shit actually works and is simpler than what we have now, yet is more efficient ‘, she may not be that far off base.

    It’s always about The Coverup with these people. They are so entrenched in their lie’s that they actually (collectively) wouldn’t know the 1st thing about being Brutally Honest. Besides, it’ll unravel all of the other lie’s that have been told for the last few hundred years now!

    Maybe stop sending them there then? How about sending them to somewhere without a vested interest!

  21.' Thomas Chenhall says:

    The common giants ran about 9 foot tall, six toes on each foot, six fingers on each hand, and two rows of flat teeth (vegetarian adaptation).

    The larger giants way beyond 9 feet were not evolved for earth’s gravity, but probably a moon’s gravity they could handle well.

  22.' Nathan Dunning says:

    Find out that angles bred with humans and their abomination offspring were giants

  23.' Andrei Fazekas says:

    But very little evidence of dinosaurs except for the fossils that are locked up in vaults. It’s time to debunk the dinosaur myth.

    Oxygen was more saturated back then..bodies grew due to the density of richness in the air, soil, plants, animals, and water.

    this is all true, we know this and have told you, but you don’t listen to us, ever. Sky people, bigfoot, spirits, and many other stories we tell are true. We have been here since Pangea

    lesson – stop sending artifacts to the Smithsonian Cemetery of Knowledge, Purveyor of Propaganda and Keeper of HisStory

  32.' Arijeet Prasad says:…use it to earn money…its preety cool

  33.' Phoenix Sands says:

    this would be either because of an otherworld source or a natural source.. why would the dinosaurs be the only giant species on the planet.. ? .. the question has always been asked, “where did we come from?” well .. i dont accept the “we came from the water.” explaination..

  34.' Kent Carrier says:

    There is a store in Plentywood, Montana that has an extremely large human type skull displayed in a glass case. I personally saw this myself about ten years ago. The owner of the store told me it was found somewhere in Montana, I don’t recall where. I assume it is still there.

    Take note that the Bible speaks of heavenly creatures like giants coming down to Earth – it is a narrative in Genesis!

  37.' Jon Wiitanen says:

    These giant skeletons are proof of the existence of extraordinary creatures called dino-saurs, which is Latin for “great lizards”. We now have proof that earth has been visited in the distant past by reptilian extraterrestrials.
