Red Haired Giant Mummy found in Nevada

Red Haired Giant Mummy found in Nevada

In 1911, miners were digging out layers of guano from a cave located about 22 miles southwest of Lovelock, Nevada when they happened upon the mummified remains of an individual who must have stood 6½ feet tall when alive. A tall Native American, perhaps?

Probably not, since the mummy was still crowned with "distinctly red" hair.

Amazingly, the ancient legends of the local Paiute Indians described a race of red-haired giants – called Si-te-cahs – who were the enemies of many Indian tribes of the region.
