Instead of searching for all of the extra tidbits and various stories ranging from old legends to New-Age beliefs, I just did a quick search on one of the more popular races of extremely large bipedal creatures: the Red-haired Giants of Lovelock Cave. Many Native American tribes have similar stories about the red-haired giants and how they had their fair share of battles with them, etc. I've read before that their initial encounter with them occurred somewhere around 15,000 years ago. This same type of giant has also been mentioned by the Aztecs along with the Mayans. The burial sites of these crazed beasts have been claimed on almost every continent. Just who were these red-haired freaks that were supposedly unearthed in Nevada, Arizona, New York State, Tennessee, and Virginia?
If you'd like to read a fairly elaborate page about this subject, including the current evidence for them, go here: suite101.com/a/nevadas-myterious-red-haired-giants-of-lovelock-cave-a387847 [URL no longer exists]
Side Note: I still don't know why she hasn't fixed the glaring typo in her title, though. Maybe she will fix it and spell 'mysterious' correctly in due time; ha!
