7.11 – THE VANISHINGS (4.24.15)


Nunavut Territory, Canada. Located at the northernmost point of the country and stretching across most of the Canadian Arctic, the Nunavut Territory is among the most sparsely populated regions on Earth. Yet Inuit tribes have continuously inhabited the region for at least 4,000 years. Because of its remoteness, most people had not heard of the region until 1930, when it first made headlines across North American newspapers with the report of the mysterious disappearance of an entire Inuit tribe.

“A fur trapper by the name of Joe Labelle comes upon a small village, and it’s empty. There are tents, there are shelters, there’s a fire, there’s stew in a pot on the fire. But there’s nobody around.”

George Noory (Radio Host, Coast to Coast AM)

“There were graves in this village where every top of every grave had been lifted off, and every dead person was gone.”

– Linda Moulton Howe
(Author / Investigative Journalist, Earthfiles)

There was no sign of violence or disturbance in the Anjikuni village to explain how an estimated 25 men, women, and children would have vanished. After the disappearance was first publicized, other details began to emerge.

“When the Royal Canadian Mounted Police got to the village and they went around and talked with locals, they were hearing all about strange things in the sky. The Mounties themselves saw blue lights, twinkling and hovering and moving around on the horizon, as if being watched by something in the sky.”

– Linda Moulton Howe
(Author / Investigative Journalist, Earthfiles)

“One thing that makes the Anjikuni case really stand out is the fact that an entire village was just gone. And that is something that we don’t see too often. But we do see it now and again. And, possibly, that demonstrates a very disturbing aspect of the UFO phenomenon.”

– Nick Redfern (Author, Memoirs of a Monster Hunter),
(The Real Men in Black), (Final Events),
(The World’s Weirdest Places),
(Close Encounters of the Fatal Kind),
(Bloodline of the Gods), (The NASA Conspiracies),
(On the Trail of the Saucer Spies:
UFOs and Government Surveillance)

Could it be that the Anjikuni tribe actually disappeared from the face of the earth? Some Ancient Astronaut Theorists claim that accounts of mass disappearances can be traced back thousands of years to some of our earliest civilizations.

“What is happening on all of the mass disappearances? Nobody knows. In the mass disappearances where cultures or towns or villages have disappeared in Earth history, nobody has come back.”

– Linda Moulton Howe
(Author / Investigative Journalist, Earthfiles)

“Throughout ancient history, there are various reports of large amounts of people just completely disappearing from the earth and going to some unknown place. We don’t know, but it’s possible that this is connected, in fact, to extraterrestrials.”

– David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods),
(Vimana: Flying Machines of the Ancients)

Is it possible that there is a common thread linking mass disappearances throughout history? And if extraterrestrials have, in fact, been removing entire groups of people from the planet since ancient times, what might their purpose be? Perhaps further evidence can be found by examining recently discovered artifacts left behind by a lost ancient civilization.

Guanghan City, China. 1986. Construction workers unearth two sacrificial pits that contain the relics of a long lost civilization. The cache contains hundreds of bronze and gold masks, statues, and figurines, in addition to numerous marble and jade artifacts. Chinese historians consider the discovery one of the most important finds of the 20th-century and date the site back between 3,000 and 5,000 years, to the very start of Chinese civilization.

“Before the Sanxingdui discovery, Chinese civilization was understood to have arisen from the Yellow River basin basically, one spot in China. This discovery showed that there were other very advanced cultures on the periphery of the Yellow River basin that also heavily contributed to the formation of Chinese civilization.”

– Dominic Steavu, Ph.D.
(Asst. Prof. of Chinese Religious Studies, UCSB)

“Nobody wrote about the culture at Sanxingdui. There’s nothing that comes up in Chinese texts, and the Chinese are very good at documenting their history. So, one of the most surprising things is how a culture that was so sophisticated could slide under the radar of history.”

Julie Lee (Vice-Pres. Of Collections, Bowers Museum)

The Sanxingdui culture left no written record, no human remains have been found, and, according to their artifacts, they appear to have only existed for 350 years.

“For some unknown reason, the artifacts were broken, burned, and placed into two pits and covered up, rendering them useless. So, it’s very curious as to why that happened.”

Julie Lee (Vice-Pres. Of Collections, Bowers Museum)

Adding to the intrigue of the vanished civilization, they left behind dozens of bronze heads with odd features.

“On November 1, 2007, the official press agency of China asked the question whether or not what we’re looking at here are ancestors or in fact extraterrestrials. And my question is, what if what we have here is both? If you check out this one right here, look at the eyes. Now, why would any artisan carve or create something like this? Because our eyes don’t look like this. The whole thing is very bizarre-looking. It is not necessarily human. It is something else.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“The masks look very unusual. They have big ears, big eyes. They don’t look like normal human beings of today.”

– David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods),
(Vimana: Flying Machines of the Ancients)

Could it be that the masks found at the Sanxingdui site are depicting ancient astronauts who visited our planet in the remote past? And if so, could this help explain the abrupt disappearance of a seemingly advanced civilization?

“Ultimately, they vanish, and we don’t know what happened to them. So, were they some kind of extraterrestrial civilization or-or human hybrid civilization and were ultimately airlifted out at some point in time and-and perhaps moved to another place?”

– David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods),
(Vimana: Flying Machines of the Ancients)

Is it possible that the Sanxingdui, as well as other ancient civilizations, were literally taken off the face of the earth? And if so, why? Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest that clues can be found by examining the stories of Easter Island and a lost tribe of giants.
