"BLOOD, AND FIRE, AND VAPOUR OF SMOKE..."
-- Acts 2:19 --
The author of the following story is a Navaho Indian. He revealed this tribal
secret which he learned from the Paiute Indians, who inhabit the Great Basin and
Mojave deserts of Utah, Nevada, and California.
This native American, who went by the name Oga-Make,
related the following account in appreciation for a story on the Navaho which
appeared in the Spring of 1948 in a magazine which was carrying numerous
articles on the mysterious "signs" or "fires" in the skies
which were causing an enormous amount of confusion and debate during that same
year, as well as the years following.
The article on the Navaho nation, which appeared in an
earlier issue, told of the suffering that their tribe had gone through during
past winter seasons, and encouraged the readership to send goods and supplies to
help them through the upcoming winter of '48-'49, which many of them did.
In appreciation of this, Oga-Make related the following
'legend' which told of the secret history of the Americas which ran it's course,
possibly thousands of years before white men set their foot en masse upon it's
...Most of you who read this are probably white men of a blood only a
century or two out of Europe. You speak in your papers of the Flying Saucers or
Mystery Ships as something new, and strangely typical of the twentieth century.
How could you but think otherwise? Yet if you had red skin, and were of a blood
which had been born and bred of the land for untold thousands of years, you
would know this is not true. You would know that your ancestors living in these
mountains and upon these prairies for numberless generations, had seen these
ships before, and had passed down the story in the legends which are the
unwritten history of your people. You do not believe? Well, after all, why
should you? But knowing your scornful unbelief, the storytellers of my people
have closed their lips in bitterness against the outward flow of this knowledge.
Yet, I have said to the storytellers this: now that the ships are being
seen again, is it wise that we, the elder race, keep our knowledge to ourselves?
Thus for me, an American Indian, some of the sages among my people have talked,
and if you care to, I shall permit you to sit down with us and listen.
Let us say that it is dusk in that strange place which you, the
white-man, calls "Death Valley." I have passed tobacco... to the aged chief of
the Paiutes who sits across a tiny fire from me and sprinkles corn meal upon the
The old chief looked like a wrinkled mummy as he sat there puffing upon
his pipe. Yet his eyes were not those of the unseeing, but eyes which seemed to
look back on long trails of time. His people had held the Inyo, Panamint and
Death Valleys for untold centuries before the coming of the white-man. Now we
sat in the valley which white-man named for Death, but which the Paiute calls
Tomesha-- The Flaming Land. Here before me as I faced eastward, the Funerals
(mountains forming Death Valley's eastern wall) were wrapped in purple-blue
blankets about their feet while their faces were painted in scarlet. Behind me,
the Panamints rose like a mile-high wall, dark against the sinking sun.
The old Paiute smoked my tobacco for a long time before he reverently
blew the smoke to the four directions. Finally he spoke.
"You ask me if we heard of the great silver airships in the days before
white-man brought his wagon trains into the land?"
"Yes grandfather, I come seeking
knowledge." (Among all tribes of my
people, grandfather is the term of greatest respect which one man can pay to
"We, the Paiute Nation, have known of these ships for untold
generations. We also believe that we know something of the people who fly them.
They are called The Hav-musuvs."
"Who are the Hav-musuvs?"
"They are a people of the Panamints, and they are as ancient as Tomesha
He smiled a little at my confusion.
"You do not understand? Of course not. You are not a
listen closely and I will lead you back along the trail of the dim past.
"When the world was young, and this valley which is now dry, parched
desert, was a lush, hidden harbor of a blue water -- sea which stretched from half
way up those mountains to the Gulf of California, it is said that the Hav-musuvs
came here in huge rowing-ships. They found great caverns in the Panamints, and
in them they built one of their cities. At that time California was the island
which the Indians of that state told the Spanish it was, and which they marked
so on their maps.
"Living in their hidden city, the Hav-musuvs ruled the sea with their
fast rowing-ships, trading with far-away peoples and bringing strange goods to
the great quays said still to exist in the caverns.
"Then as untold centuries rolled past, the climate began to change. The
water in the lake went down until there was no longer a way to the sea. First
the way was broken only by the southern mountains, over the tops of which goods
could be carried. But as time went by, the water continued to shrink, until the
day came when only a dry crust was all that remained of the great blue lake.
Then the desert came, and the Fire-God began to walk across Tomesha, The
"When the Hav-musuvs could no longer use their great rowing-ships, they
began to think of other means to reach the world beyond. I suppose that is how
it happened. We know that they began to use flying canoes. At first they were
not large, these silvery ships with wings. They moved with a slight whirring
sound, and a dipping movement, like an eagle.
"The passing centuries brought other changes. Tribe after tribe swept
across the land, fighting to possess it for awhile and passing like the storm of
sand. In their mountain city still in the caverns, the Hav-musuvs dwelt in
peace, far removed from the conflict. Sometimes they were seen in the distance,
in their flying ships or riding on the snowy-white animals which took them from
ledge to ledge up the cliffs. We have never seen these strange animals at any
other place. To these people the passing centuries brought only larger and
larger ships, moving always more silently."
"Have you ever seen a Hav-musuv?"
"No, but we have many stories of them. There are reasons why one does
not become too curious."
"Yes. These strange people have weapons. One is a small tube which
stuns one with a prickly feeling like a rain of cactus needles. One cannot move
for hours, and during this time the mysterious ones vanish up the cliffs. The
other weapon is deadly. It is a long, silvery tube. When this is pointed at you,
death follows immediately."
"But tell me about these people. What do they look like and how do they
"They are a beautiful people. Their skin is a golden tint, and a head
band holds back their long dark hair. They dress always in a white fine-spun
garment which wraps around them and is draped upon one shoulder. Pale sandals
are worn upon their feet..."
His voice trailed away in a puff of smoke. The purple shadows rising up
the walls of the Funerals splashed like the waves of the ghost lake. The old man
seemed to have fallen into a sort of trance, but I had one more question.
"Has any Paiute ever spoken to a Hav-musuv, or were the Paiutes here
when the great rowing-ships first appeared?"
For some moments I wondered if he had heard me. Yet as is our custom, I
waited patiently for the answer. Again he went through the ritual of the
smoke-breathing to the four directions, and then his soft voice continued:
"Yes. Once in the not-so-distant-past, but yet many generations before
the coming of the Spanish, a Paiute chief lost his bride by sudden death. In his
great and overwhelming grief, he thought of the Hav-musuvs and their long
tube-of-death. He wished to join her, so he bid farewell to his sorrowing people
and set off to find the Hav-musuvs. None appeared until the chief began to climb
the almost unscaleable Panamints. Then one of the men in white appeared suddenly
before him with the long tube, and motioned him back. The chief made signs that
he wished to die, and came on. The man in white made a long singing whistle and
other Hav-musuvs appeared. They spoke together in a strange tongue and then
regarded the chief thoughtfully. Finally they made signs to him making him
understand that they would take him with them.
"Many weeks after his people had mourned him for dead, the Paiute chief
came back to his camp. He had been in the giant underground valley of the
Hav-musuvs, he said, where white lights which burn night and day and never go
out, or need any fuel, lit an ancient city of marble beauty. There he learned
the language and the history of the mysterious people, giving them in turn the
language and legends of the Paiutes. He said that he would have liked to remain
there forever in the peace and beauty of their life, but they bade him return
and use his new knowledge for his people."
I could not help but ask the inevitable.
"'Do you believe this story of the
His eyes studied the wisps of smoke for some minutes before he
"I do not know. When a man is lost in
Tomesha, and the Fire-God is
walking across the salt crust, strange dreams like clouds, fog through his mind.
No man can breathe the hot breath of the Fire-God and long remain sane. Of
course, the Paiutes have thought of this. No people knows the moods of Tomesha
better than they.
"You asked me to tell you the legend of the flying ships. I have told
you what the young men of the tribe do not know, for they no longer listen to
the stories of the past. Now you ask me if I believe. I answer this. Turn
around. Look behind you at that wall of the Panamints. How many giant caverns
could open there, being hidden by the lights and shadows of the rocks? How many
could open outward or inward and never be seen behind the arrow-like pinnacles
before them? How many ships could swoop down like an eagle from the beyond, on
summer nights when the fires of the furnace-sands have closed away the valley
from the eyes of the white-man? How many Hav-musuvs could live in their eternal
peace away from the noise of white-man's guns in their unscaleable stronghold?
This has always been a land of mystery. Nothing can change that. Not even
white-man with his flying engines, for should they come too close to the wall of
the Panamints a sharp wind like the flying arrow can sheer off a wing. Tomesha
hides its secrets well even in winter, but no man can pry into them when the
Fire-God draws the hot veil of his breath across the passes.
"I must still answer your question with my mind in doubt, for we speak
of a weird land. White-man does not yet know it as well as the Paiutes, and we
have ever held it in awe. It is still the forbidden 'Tomesha--Land-Of-The-Flaming-Earth.'"
The preceding account, titled "TRIBAL MEMORIES OF THE FLYING
SAUCERS", appeared in the Sept. 1949 issue of FATE magazine. Coincidentally
or not, this same 'legend' was repeated in amazing similarity by an old
prospector by the name of Bourke Lee in his book DEATH VALLEY MEN
(Macmillan Co., New York, 1932). However, Lee stated that it was NOT a legend,
but an actual account of the discovery of a (now abandoned) city WITHIN the
Panamint Mountains as he heard it from three other people who claimed to have
seen this ancient wonder beneath the earth.
Believe it or not, those who talked to Bourke Lee mentioned the ancient
'lake' within Death Valley, the ancient city within the Panamints themselves,
and even the large tunnel-like 'quays' or ancient boat docks above the ancient
shoreline on the eastern slope of the Panamints which led INTO the ancient
city... ancient artifacts which they swore they saw with their own eyes.
The Editors of FATE magazine introduced the story which appears above with
the following words:
...FATE presents two new saucer stories in this issue. The first is a
startling account of an aviation editor's encounter with two disks (two week's
after he had photographed four and was frustrated in every attempt to get the
photo into the big dailies and thus prove the flying saucers were real at the
height of the 'scare'); and the second is a tribal secret of the Paihute Indians
given to FATE magazine out of appreciation for FATE's Navaho story in the
Spring, 1948 issue, which helped relieve their hardship in the ensuing winter.
Your editor wonders about (these) stories, and presents them as a possible
solution of the nature and origin of the famous disks. Both these stories
arrived on our desk on the same day. They corroborate each other. We say that
investigation will prove both to be true. We admit, however, that we believe it
will be as impossible to prove the Hav-musuv story as it has been to produce a
captive disk. Your editor, however, has been a friend of the American Indian for
many years, and he has rarely known an Indian to lie. He is convinced of the
sincerity of the story we present in this issue, and that it has not been
distorted. What does it mean? What, really, are the Hav-musuvs?
The story of the Hav-musuvs seems to be a major or key 'piece' of the overall
puzzle of a wide range of aerial as well as subsurface phenomena which have
mystified numerous researchers throughout this century.
Not the least of these unusual phenomena were the so-called
California who during the 1950's and '60's, in fact, described their own alleged
encounters with 'benevolent' human-like beings who were seen to emerge from
aerial disks, not far at all from the mysterious Panamint mountains themselves.
The Mojave Desert is also, believe it or not, the very place where William
Shatner claimed to have had his UFO encounter with a 'silvery disk', which he
alleges saved his life after he became lost in the Mojave's other-worldly
expanse, and this long before he was Christened 'Captain' of the U.S.S.
The Mojave Desert of California is in this sense perhaps one of the most
interesting areas in the world whereas encounters with strange aerial phenomena
are concerned. In certain small California and Mojave Desert towns, like the
small town of Anza for instance, one is more likely to be called crazy for NOT
believing in UFO's than they are for believing in them. Sightings have been so
numerous over the years that these aerial visitors are an accepted fact of life.
The interesting thing, however, is that the two most commonly reported types
of 'occupants' which are described by thousands of witnesses with remarkable
consistency the world over (in relation to these aerial phenomena) play a large
part in the Mojave Desert scenario as well. These are the two groups which have
often been referred to at the 'Saurian Grays' and the 'Nordic Blonds'.
Both types of 'entities' have appeared in many accounts describing encounters
with not only so-called extraterrestrial beings, but also the lesser known --
although nevertheless persistent -- accounts of intra-terranean beings as well.
In this file we will document numerous accounts which seem to suggest that the
'Nordics' may be our ancient ancestors who, a few thousand years previous to the
modern 'space race', may have attained the science and technology necessary to
burrow deep into the earth in order to construct vast subterranean technological metropolises, and shortly thereafter like a slingshot from the lower
depths of the earth they may have hurled themselves in starships of their own
devising through the interplanetary and perhaps even interstellar depths of
The strange allegation among 'UFOlogists', however, is one mentioned by many
'contactees' who allege that a neo-sauroid or reptilian race known as the GRAYS
may have for hundreds if not thousands of years been in conflict, or even in all-out warfare with the so-called 'Nordics' (as we will see further on,
the "Nordic" appellation may be closer to the truth than one might
think). The explanation given by some researchers as to the ACTUAL ORIGIN of
this malevolent and predatory (other) race of 'grayish' aliens may shock you!
Since National Polls reveal that approximately 80 percent of all Americans
believe in the phenomena known as UFO's to some degree, and that as many as 2
percent or 1 in 50 believe that they have been targets of 'abduction' by the
same in the past, this file is written with the assumption that the reader is
one of the 80% (and possibly even one of the 2 percent who have experiential
knowledge of the UFO phenomena).
If the reader believes that they are part of the 20 percent who do not
believe in UFO's and have no desire to do so, then the following may not be for
you. If one does not like the idea of having the very 'fabric' of their concept
of reality torn apart and woven back together again, then they might do well to
pass on this information to someone with a more open mind. But if you desire to
bear with us, we will reveal to you the hidden secrets of one place on earth
which appears to be a 'doorway' to other worlds, to worlds and realities and
adventures which may well make the reader's own perception of 'reality' seem
absolutely mundane to the extreme...
But if you dare, then read on:
George H. Leonard, in his book SOMEBODY ELSE IS ON THE MOON (David
McKay Co. Inc., New York., 1967), quotes Morris K. Jessup (the UFOlogist who
died under mysterious circumstances after exposing the so-called 'PHILADELPHIA
EXPERIMENT'), who asked the question: "Who has beaten us to the moon by
hundreds or even thousands of years?"
Leonard, based on research gathered by himself and certain ex-NASA employees,
confirms the suspicions of certain researchers to the effect that NASA is aware
of the fact that an alien race (the Grays, etc.) and a human-like race has for
centuries been fighting for possession of the moon, that mining equipment has
been seen as well as many other evidences of lunar activity. Leonard says:
More than one...race occupies the Moon
-- Culture traits and technology
seen in different parts of the Moon vary considerably ... it appears from the
body of reliable data that one or more of the (non-human) races regards us with
disdain and values human life cheaply... Races capable of moving between star
systems... and existing on the Moon must be capable of wiping us out at will. It
is probably this (understandably) which PANICS the military.
Mr. Leonard, during one of his interviews with an ex-NASA employee whom he
refers to as Dr. Sam Wittcomb (a pseudonym to protect his real identity), at
which time he showed 'Whittcomb' the ms. for his book, learned the following
...And Sam Wittcomb read my manuscript in draft and then sat staring
into the black night. When he spoke, it was in a hushed voice. I'd never heard
him like that before.
"They brought scientists together from many countries in
the Spring of 1975. The meeting was in England. They wanted to talk on the quiet
about 'extraterrestrials' and what they're up to. A lot of people at
the top are scared."
A cold spot formed in the small of my back. Sam turned to
"They invited a physicist from Colorado, a man named Joachim
worked on the Moon program and knows what's up there. He could tell them about
it first hand. About the frenetic building and digging going on, the spraying of
craters and carving up of crater rims and ridges. I don't know exactly what they
talked about. But you can bet they know it's not Earth-people's Moon anymore --
if it ever was. It belongs to THEM."
As we've said, at least one of the races on the Moon is human, or identical
to those of us on earth. If this is so, then we might ask ourselves "where
on earth did these people come from, and how did they get to the moon before
'we' did?" It is certainly a reasonable question.
There exist several corroborative accounts taken from ancient Hindu scripts
(again, as Ripley would say "believe it or not"), which we will quote
shortly, stating that the ancient GREEKS had actually developed flying ships
thousands of years ago. Is it possible that the Hav-musuvs (which as we've said,
may have been a neo-Grecian race because of their dress and their marble-like
cities) would have taken the next logical step after developing aerial travel:
that is, attempt to land one or more of their kind on the Moon... eventually
upon Mars... and possibly even later upon planets in a nearby star system?
The United States has made incredible advances in this area in a period of
less than 100 years, thanks to the phenomena known as the technological curve
(i.e. that a synchronous effort on the part of many contributing factors
eventually leads to a multiplying explosion in technology). If America landed a
man on the moon only 70 years after the Wright Brothers opened the skies to
aerial travel, then can we expect anything less from the Hav-musuvs or others
like them? For instance technology in our society is becoming thousands of times
more sophisticated every year. Is it possible that the ancient Greeks or a
similar ancient society had a 'technology explosion' thousands of years ago? If
so, then it may have been possible for them to establish bases or colonies on
the Moon, Mars, and perhaps beyond! We might add that there are some who even
claim that the secret of "hyper-space" travel was inadvertently
discovered only 40 years after the Wright Brothers successfully tested their
aircraft at Kitty Hawk -- during a super-secret Navy experiment called the
Rainbow Project which was carried out at the Philadelphia Naval harbor in 1943.
If 'we' can go from the horse-and-buggy to landing men on the moon in LESS
that 100 years (or from the horse-and-buggy to "hyperspace" travel in
only 40 years!?) then how much exploration and colonization of other planetary
bodies might have taken place by a race who three or four THOUSAND years ago
possessed aerial craft and technologies equal to or greater than our own?
One 'contactee', incidentally, has stated that a large 'space port' does in
fact exist in a network of caverns deep below present-day Death Valley.
In reference to this we will quote from a 'synopsis' of the experiences of
Brazilian 'contactee' Jefferson Souza, as it appeared in a catalog put out by
the UFO LIBRARY (11684 Ventura Blvd. #708., Studio City, CA 91604). Many of the
individuals referred to in this catalog, which offers taped interviews or
lectures describing their encounters, are either 'contactees' who have had
friendly encounters with the so-called 'Nordic' or human-like beings who pilot
many of the 'alien' craft; or who have been 'abducted' by the more manipulating
and predatory 'Gray' or 'saurian' entities. Quoting from their description of
Mr. Souza's experiences:
Reaction to the first sighting of a UFO is unpredictable. Jeff Souza
had his first contact in 1979 when he was only 13. The memory of it was tucked
away in the recesses of his mind. Twenty alien contacts during the next 10 years
never fully restored the image. But those years were filled with excitement that
would result in one of the most inspirational stories of alien contact ever
The young Brazilian was possessed of intelligence and intuition. He
studied and managed to complete one semester of medical school before giving up
his formal education.
In contact with two races of extraterrestrials, Jeff has met them in
Brazil, Argentina and the United States. But where they occurred is unimportant
when compared to the depth and scope of what he learned.
The gentle VEGANS and the business-like UMMITES taught Souza more than
he could ever imagine about technology and life on all planets. He was
transported aboard a spaceship by LIGHT (anti-gravity rays? - Branton) and taken
to other planets and (other) parts of the world. On one such trip he suffered an
unusual reaction -- all his hair fell out. His watch broke at every contact.
Jeff Souza has been questioned by experts in the field of alien
contact. He has been clinically regressed through hypnotism to the time of his
first contact but the answers came only in Portuguese. At that age, Jeff could
not speak English.
The details he has learned are awe inspiring. Answers to questions
about time, space, matter, energy, life and spirituality easily rolled from his
tongue. All prompted by the alien contacts of his past and present.
His interview and the recorded details of his many physical contacts
PROVIDE HITHERTO UNKNOWN INFORMATION ABOUT SEVERAL ALIEN RACES INCLUDING THE
MYSTERIOUS AND THREATENING GRAYS. FROM JEFF SOUZA WE LEARN ABOUT THE SEVEN RACES
(possibly humanoid and/or saurian - Branton), THE ALIEN NAME FOR EARTH, A
SUBTERRANEAN SPACE STATION IN DEATH VALLEY AND IF AIDS MIGHT BE CURED BY ALIENS.
There is a final precaution from his contacts -- we must all learn the
lessons given to Jeff Souza because we are destroying our planet and if we don't
change, not even the friendly aliens will be able to save us.
We see here then a definite connection between the subterranea of the Death
Valley region, which is reportedly inhabited by the neo-Grecian(?) Hav-musuvs
and the human societies in 'Vega' and 'Ummo', which as we shall see later on,
according to other contactees, are "Federated" with other human
colonies or civilizations in Tau Ceti, Epsilon Eridani, Alpha Centauri, the
Pleiades and elsewhere.
Although Jefferson Souza claims to have encountered the Ummo People in landed
craft, the Vegans are the ones who allowed him to travel on their craft most
often. It was also the Vegans who showed him the MASSIVE basing complex below
Death Valley, which contained chambers miles in diameter and numerous
compartmentalized sectors which had been adapted to meet the gravitational,
atmospheric and environmental needs of the various Federation world
representatives who use the base as a way-station for their operations on earth.
Apparently the Hav-musuvs have been VERY BUSY for the last few thousand ears, if
we are to believe Souza's account.
In addition to the above, Souza learned of two other alien species that are
in conflict to some extent with the humanoids with whom he maintained contact.
One of these includes an "Insectoid" type race, while the other is
reptilian. The latter consists of a tall, very reptilian-saurian appearing
"master" race to which the shorter reptilian "Grays" are
subservient. There are at least three types of "Grays", according to
Souza: those that reproduce via egg-hatcheries, those that reproduce via
cloning, and those that reproduce via polyembryony.
One might ask: if some of our ancient ancestors were so intelligent that they
could develop aerial craft, then where is all the evidence? The evidence is
there, but has been largely ignored by orthodox scientists who cannot fit the
existence of advanced prehistoric civilizations into their own theoretical
framework. For instance:
Ancient sophisticated artifacts discovered imbedded in SOLID ROCK (including
ancient 'spark plugs', metal cubes, gold chains, metal vases, nails, screws, and
even electric batteries such as those described in Rene Noorbergen's SECRETS OF
THE LOST RACES - Bobbs-Merril Co., N.Y.), as well as artifacts found on the
ocean floor, give evidence to the fact that our ancient ancestors were FAR more
intelligent in the scientific realm than we give them credit for. Yves Naud, in
his book UFO'S AND EXTRATERRESTRIALS IN HISTORY (Ferni Publishers,
Geneva, Switzerland, 1978) describes one such artifact:
In 1900, sponge divers near Antikythera (Greece), found rusty fragments
