Race of Giants

In his book Forbidden Land, Robert R. Lyman (1870–1963) wrote of an unknown tribe of American giants who had the added distinction of having horns growing from their heads:

"At Tioga Point … a short distance from Sayre, in Bradford County [Pennsylvania] … they uncovered an Indian mound [and] found the bones of 68 men which were believed to have been buried about the year 1200. The average height of these men was seven feet, while many were much taller. On some of the skulls, two inches above the perfectly formed forehead, were protuberances of bone, evidently horns that had been there since birth. Some of the specimens were sent to the American Investigating Museum.…"

In La Crescent, Minnesota, not far from Dresbach, mound diggers reportedly found large skillets and “bones of men of huge stature.” Over in Chatfield, mounds were excavated, revealing six skeletons of enormous size. Unusually large skeletons of seven people buried head down were discovered in Clearwater. The skulls in the latter find were said to have had receding foreheads, and teeth that were double all the way around.

Other discoveries in Minnesota included “men of more than ordinary size” in Moose Island Lake; several skeletons, one of “gigantic size,” in Pine City; ten skeletons “of both sexes and of gigantic size” in Warren (buried with these particular specimens were horses, badgers, and dogs).

In December 1886, W. H. Scoville of Andrews Settlement discovered an Indian mound at Ellisburg. When opened, the skeleton of a man was found. It was close to eight feet in length. According to their oral tradition, the Delaware tribe once lived in the western United States. At some point in their history, they migrated eastward as far as the Mississippi River, where they were joined by the Iroquois Confederacy. Both groups of people were seeking land better suited to their cultured way of life, and they continued together on their eastward trek. Scouts sent ahead learned of a nation that inhabited the land east of the Mississippi and who had built strong, walled cities. These people were known as the Talligewi or Allegewi, after whom the Allegheny River and Mountains are named. 


Allegewi is a cryptid that lives in the Allegheny Mountain range that cuts through the United States and Canada. It is known as a group of giants that eats human flesh, is highly intelligent and appears to use tools and primitive cloth. The Allegewi were considered taller than either the Iroquois or the Delaware, and the scouts saw a good many giants walking among them. When the two migrating tribes asked permission to pass through the land of the Allegewi, it was denied. Bitter fighting broke out, which continued for a number of years. Eventually, the superior numbers and the determination of the allies prevailed, and the Allegewi fled to the west. The Allegewi next appear in the legends of the Lakota/Dakota (Sioux) whose tradition tells of a confrontation with a race of great stature. The Sioux, who were surely among the ablest of warriors, exterminated the Allegewi when the giants sought to settle in what is now Minnesota.

The New York Times on December 2, 1930, carried an item that told of the discovery of the remains of an apparent race of giants who once lived at Sayopa, Sonora, a mining town 300 miles south of the Mexican border. A mining engineer, J. E. Coker, said that laborers clearing ranchland near the Yazui River “dug into an old cemetery where bodies of men, averaging eight feet in height, were found buried tier by tier.…”

The best proof of a race of giants in North America—or anywhere else—would be the discovery of the skeletons of these people. Two brothers living in Dresbach, Minnesota, while in the process of enlarging their brick business, were forced to remove a number of large Indian mounds. In one of the huge earthenworks they discovered the bones of “men over eight feet tall.”

On February 14, 1936, the New York Times ran a piece datelined Managua, Nicaragua, which stated that the skeleton of a gigantic man, with the head missing, had 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 man.’”

In its June 9, 1936 issue, the New York Times published an article item with a Miami, Florida dateline that told of human skeletons eight feet long imbedded in the sand of an uninhabited little island off Southern Florida. E. M. Miller, zoologist at the University of Miami, commented that the skulls were unusually thick, the jaws protruded, and the eye sockets were high in the head.
