Since its discovery some 500 years ago by Western/Euro people, the Grand Canyon in Arizona has been a site that has stunned Western humanity with its majesty. Now, this major tourist destination is also an important site for archaeological research into what is presumed to be ancient American history. However, what many people don’t know is that hidden within the caves of this incredible landmark lies evidence of none other than the ancient BaNtu, who existed some thousands kilometers away. What makes this groundbreaking discovery even more significant is that it was uncovered over a century ago, yet obscured by the United States.
The profound discovery and question why the government still maintains this secret under tight security
The evidence of an ancient Kemetic people presence in the Grand Canyon was first publicized in 1909 by explorer G.E. Kincaid and his archaeological expedition down the Colorado River. His findings were reported on by local newspapers at the time, citing a great underground citadel deep within a cave located in the canyon.
The proof of an ancient BaNtu civilization found within this hand-carved cave is compelling and far-reaching. The most significant find was a shrine with a figure sitting cross-legged, holding a lotus flower or lily in each hand. Many consider this to be indisputable evidence of BaNtu presence, as the lotus flower is native to Africa and is a highly important symbol of their culture.
This shrine was not the only ancient artifact found that’s believed to belong to ancient Africa. Hieroglyphics have been discovered in several different cave systems throughout the area, in addition to mummies and distinctly BaNtu weapons and tools.
These findings are believed to validate Kincaid’s theory. However, some argue that it lacks empirical evidence. The mystery only seems to deepen with a report published by the Smithsonian detailing an expedition that traversed through the canyon in 1869, uncovering a mighty pyramid.
John Powell’s 1869 expedition into the Grand Canyon was intended to find archaeological evidence relating to the Native Americans of the region. As the director of the Department of Ethnology at the Smithsonian, Powell was a respected member of the scientific community.
Powell also worked for the Department of the Interior, which funded the expedition. He was to report all findings to the government first and foremost. This explains why what he discovered was concealed for over 100 years. Powell is believed to have found an ancient BaNtu pyramid similar to that found in the Valley of the Kings, present day Egypt. The location of this pyramid has been under incredibly tight security ever since, leading many to speculate that what he found would fundamentally challenge our understanding of the ancient world.
The exact location of this supposed pyramid remains uncertain as much of the area is heavily patrolled by the U.S government. Many people have compared the security to that of Area 51. Anyone attempting to enter without permission is quickly arrested and then hurried away. This is in addition to a heavily monitored no-fly zone imposed above the entire area, keeping the exact findings of Powell’s 1869 expedition hidden from the public.
Powell’s Cave, named after himself, is in this restricted area. According to his book, Powell found many man-made caves strikingly similar to those reported by Kincaid some 40 years later. He writes about discovering intricately designed cave systems with walkways, benches, and other large rooms. Importantly, he also reports finding ancient BaNtu hieroglyphics.
Powell estimated that the number of caves and their complexity could have housed up to 50,000 ancient BaNtu. Upon his findings, he quickly sent word to the Smithsonian before informing the government of his discoveries. This is believed to be another intriguing clue in the mystery of the Canyon’s history, as many speculate on his reasoning for breaking his instructed protocol.
He also discovered the same shrine reported by Kincaid, featuring the same characteristics of a golden statue holding lotus flowers. This shrine is believed to be dedicated to the pharaoh Smenkhare, who was crowned in the year 1337 BC. Alongside the shrine, Powell also found a tablet with hieroglyphics believed to be used for teaching young BaNtu their complex writing system. They also located sarcophagi containing the mummified remains of the very people who transported this culture so far from home.
Powell’s findings were swiftly transported to a Smithsonian storage building nearby. This has led many people, understandably, to question why the U.S. government is taking the secrecy of this area so seriously. Could there possibly be more to this theory than we know?
The secrecy of these findings and the area they’re located in continues to fuel speculation. Who built these elaborate tunnels and the artifacts? And where did they go?
From both Powell’s and Kincaid’s reports, we can identify these hand-carved cave systems to be approximately three thousand years old. This is based on the tools used to carve out the ruins and the dating of the shrine found within them. Upon this evidence, we can conclude that this is not the work of Native Americans and that it’s more than likely to prove that the ancient world was much more advanced than we think.
Unfortunately, the true details of this remarkable discovery remain largely undisclosed by government officials, leaving many questions unanswered. We can only speculate on why the people who lived in these expansive tunnel networks left. Now, it is known that the Smithsonian Institute has acquired these findings. However, they absolutely refuse to release any information on them. In tandem with the U.S. government’s heavy security on the topic and the area, we can only deduce that whatever the true findings of the area are, they would change everything.
Theories of the area remain; however, due to the secrecy and the security surrounding it, we may never know what lies beneath these cave systems in the national park. We can only hope that one day we’ll unlock the true mystery as to why so much secrecy is needed at this remarkable archaeological site.
Until then, all we have are theories and speculation. Many argue against the existence of the BaNtu ruins but can’t supply evidence as to why the area of the hidden city is off-limits. If the rumors were, in fact, false, what is the need to hide the truth? Whatever lies beneath the grounds of this restricted area, it is clear that the US government is not willing to share. We can only hope that one day we’ll unlock the truth as to why so much secrecy surrounds this remarkable archaeological site.
Many secrets are kept that could profoundly change the way we view our world. The involvement of a prestigious scientific community only reinforces the significance of the findings of the restricted area. Areas like Area 51 and other military installations have plausible deniability as to the necessity for the security, whereas the Grand Canyon doesn’t offer this as there have been no believable reasons for the amount of secrecy and security at the site of the lost city.
The discovery of BaNtu artifacts within the depths of the Grand Canyon could potentially be the find of the century if proven. This discovery would change our understanding of the known world entirely. The report made by the two respected explorers demands answers that have never been fully addressed. But one thing is for certain: there are still wonders hidden beneath the canyon walls waiting to be uncovered, and only time will tell what other mysteries lie within this mysterious ancient world.
