We are not getting the full story here sports fans.
I recently came across a piece that seems to blend in with reports we have seen from basically all over the world concerning giants. Giants are mentioned in many religious tracts such as the Nefilim. Many are not familiar with stories concerning Cabeza De Vaca and the Spanish Conquistadores in Florida.
Highly recommended link
De Vaca tells of astounding raids on giant native Americans in Florida. He was attempting to cross a very large lake (could be Lake Okeechobee) when attacked by giant indians. De Soto thought Tuscaloosa’s son was a giant until he saw Tuscaloosa himself!
De Soto told of giants among the Tuscaloosa Indians. And of course following western protocol, the first thought was to kill them all. Some of these giants were also spoken of in Mexico. De Pineda also recounts similar stories. He was the first Spanish explorer to sail up the Mississippi River. Some of the giants were said to range from 8 feet to 80 feet tall, eleven palms tall! Pineda forgot about the gold and was fascinated by the giants. He also mentioned there was another tribe of pygmy type people who were very small. There is a tribe in Mexico that is also very small and they are called Oaxacans.
“After some of the chiefs from the town joined him, Tuscaloosa withdrew into the village, warning De Soto with a severe look to leave at once. Under a hail of arrows, De Soto and most of his men retreated from the village. After regrouping and devising their strategy, the Spaniards gained entry to the village, killed the chief’s giant son, set fire to the buildings, and massacred the city’s inhabitants.”
I lived in Yuma for 4 years and the Cocopahs may not be giants today but they are still very large. It takes about 6 local police to get one intoxicated Cocopah into a car.
“Alarcón and his men became the first Europeans to fight the rough rapids as he brought his fleet into the heart of the Colorado River, reaching as far as the lower reaches of the Grand Canyon. While coasting up the river, Alarcón and his men came upon a settlement of an estimated two hundred giant warriors. These giants, amazed by foreign intruders on the riverbanks, were ready to attack. But Alarcón defused the situation by making peace and offering gifts, which eventually won them over. These giants were later categorized with the prevailing tribes of the area as being the Cocopa Indians. A thousand more members of this giant tribe were discovered and reported further upstream.
Of course we even have newspaper accounts of Egyptian artifacts seen in caves along the Grand Canyon. It has long been off limits for treasure hunters.
There are other reports of a race of giants in islands off the Texas coast, Jamaica and Nevada.
“These maps also included Pineda’s writings about the fantastic race of giants living there. These sketches and writings are known as Garay’s Cédula and were archived by the famous Spanish compiler Martín Fernández de Navarrete. They can be found today by visiting the Archivo General de Indias, in Seville, Spain.”
“It cannot be denied that there have been giants in this country. I can affirm this as an eyewitness, for I have met men of monstrous stature here. I believe that there are many in Mexico who will remember, as I do, a giant Indian who appeared in a procession of the feast of Corpus Christi.”
“Unfortunately Díaz died before seeing his book published. Fifty years later the manuscript was found in a Madrid library and finally published in 1632. The book provides an eyewitness account of the conquest of Mexico, and it remains one of the most significant sources documenting the collapse of the Aztec Empire and the Spanish conquest of Mexico. Díaz recounts the history of the now-defeated Tlaxcatec Indians, mentioning a race of enormous giants that had once inhabited their land. During these encounters Díaz even had the chance to examine firsthand evidence of this long-forgotten race.” He writes:
Similar stories abound concerning Curacao, and island off Venezuela that Vespucci labeled the Isle of Giants. His men landed there searching for water and saw giant foot prints in the sand. He scattered the giants back to their villages with cannons and they sailed away.There are of course tales of giants in the Solomon Island and one need not worry about eye witnesses as according to reports most any resident of these islands will tell you that giants live there in a vast underground cavern complex and in the jungles.

And of course there are always the Sumerian Giants
