The Ancient Civilization of Giants Beneath Death Valley

Recommended Posts

Located within California’s Mojave Desert, Death Valley is a most apt name for a place that resembles the rugged surface of some far away, battle-scarred planet and which holds the dubious honor of being home to the highest recorded temperature in the western world. An incredible 136° Fahrenheit, it was recorded on July 10, 1913, in the very appropriately named Furnace Creek.
It is somewhat ironic that, although Death Valley got its memorable moniker during the famous Gold Rush of 1849, only one death among all the prospectors eager to seek out gold was actually reported during that turbulent period. And although the name may be relatively new, the history of the area is most definitely not. For more than a thousand years the Timbisha Native Americans have lived in the harsh environs of Death Valley. And, in times both past and present, so have a whole range of things undeniably weird.


One of the strangest of all sagas relative to the mysteries of Death Valley erupted in the summer of 1947, the very same period in which the era of the Flying Saucer took the entire world by storm. In early August of that year, Howard E. Hill, of Los Angeles, spoke before the city’s Transportation Club and told a sensational story.
It was an extravagant tale that described the work of a certain Dr. F. Bruce Russell, a retired Cincinnati, Ohio physician, who claimed to have discovered, in 1931, a series of complex tunnels deep below Death Valley.


The idea that there could be a secret 5,000-years-old underground city hidden somewhere beneath Death Valley, California is fascinating.
Those who entered the subterranean tunnels and visited this marvelous place say the city was once inhabited by an unknown race.
Now, thousands of years later the place had been abandoned, but the visitors saw strange mummies and curious old artifacts.
Is it possible that such a mysterious underground world exist beneath the Death Valley? Where is it located? Who was this strange and unknown race that once dwelled underground? Could they have been the Serpent People?

Before we can enter the realms of this mysterious subterranean world, we must first listen to the words of the Paiute Indians who have legends describing an underground world few people have heard of.
The story as described in Jim Brandon’s very interesting book Weird America tells of how several thousand years ago the great Paiute chief lost his wife. Filled with sorrow and convinced that life was not worth the living, he took his earthly body into the spirit land.
His journey into the land of the dead was a long ordeal.
He passed through an endless underground passage following the trail of all brave Indian spirits.
He was beset by fierce beasts, evil spirits, and supernatural demons.
But the courageous chieftain fought his way onward through the ghoulish cavern.
He won through to the sunlight at the far end and his feet resolutely carried him across the narrow ribbon of rock arched over a bottomless chasm.
He stepped from the bridge of rock into the green meadows of the land of the dead, a great kingdom ruled by Shin-au-av.
One daughter of Shin-au-av took the chief by the hand and led him to a vast natural amphitheater. It was a dancing place and many thousands of dead and happy Paiutes were dancing in a huge circle. The Paiute chief said he wanted to see his wife.


The female told him that once he seized his wife, they must both leave the valley quickly without a single, backward glance. The Paiute chief promised he would do just that. He waited for several days and night until he finally spotted her. Together they fled across the valley to the rock arch which spanned the bottomless chasm and joined the land of Shin-au-av to the long cavern and the world of human life.
He forgot he promised not to look back and he turned around to take a last look at the valley. The instant he looked back his wife vanished into thin air and he found himself standing alone. He rejoined his tribe and rejoined his tribe and spent the remainder of his days describing the beauties and luxuries of the land of Shin-au-av. His story became well known to all the Paiutes.
This was the legend of the underground world Shin-au-av. Now, let us move forward in time and investigate what curious discoveries were made in modern days.
Very little is known about the ancient secret underground kingdom of the Shin-au-av people. In his book Weird America, Jim Brandon tells there is a Piute, or Paiute, Indian legend of an underground city below Death Valley, that they refer to as Shin- Au-av. An Indian guide in the 1920s, Tom Wilson, claimed that his grandfather had discovered catacombs below the ground in the area.
After wandering into a miles-long labyrinth of bizarre caves beneath the valley floor, he discovered an underground city where people spoke an unknown language and wore leather-like clothing.
In the book Death Valley Men, author Bourke Lee describes how he met with two men Jack and Bill, who describe to Lee their conversation with two other men named White and Thomason about an ‘underground city’ which they claimed to have discovered.
