Sacred Serpent Mound Linked to Legends of Giants and Aliens
Sacred sites around the world like the Stonehenge in England and the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt has been drawing a lot of heated debate about the origins of humanity. Did giants roam the Earth once upon a time, and if so, were they from outer space and not of human origin? If you live in North America, you do not have to fly overseas to see these incredible places. Some may be hiding in closer than you may have thought. One special kind of a place is a serpent mound.
There are dozen hidden, some buried, across the U.S., Scotland, and Ontario, Canada, and many have already been destroyed. The most famous serpent is The Serpent Mound in Ohio, and to this day, Native American chiefs from different tribes as well as many guests visit the mound every year during important astrological events. Once you learn about its legends, you will want to join them and visit the Serpent Mound too.
What Is A Serpent Mound?
A serpent mound is an effigy mound is shape of a serpent. No one knows how many of them were there exactly as the majority got destroyed either accidentally or negligently by different land owners. The Serpent Mound of Ohio, the most accessible mound known today, was under a threat of destruction as well, but the local historical society succeeded at saving it.
The Serpent Mound is 1,348 feet long and about three feet high. Its shape consists of a coiled tail, a body, a head with its open mouth, and an egg. It is incredible because all of its parts align with astrological events—the two annual solstices and two equinoxes.
The scientific community is struggling to agree on the age of this mound. It was fixed up a few times, which makes carbon dating more challenging. Some date it to the Fort Native American Ancient Culture of 1070 C.E., others to Adena Native American origins in 300 B.C.E., the culture that loved cosmology and creating sacred sites. However, just like with the Great Pyramid, the mound’s true age may be much older.
Then there is a debate of purpose of the mound. One possibility is that it is a giant burial site. Many graves have been found near the site. However, no graves were found in the mound itself.
Another theory is that it was used for ceremonial purposes. Many Native American cultures thought the serpent to be extremely important and that it has supernatural gifts. The shape of the Serpent Mound matches the Draco constellation.
It may also have been used as a compass, which is why it aligns with so well astrologically.
Lastly, and this is where things get the most interesting, the Serpent Mound has an interesting history of the giants and alien connection.
Were There Giants?
There are many tales of giants roaming the Earth in the past. In the last 100 years, over 1000 accounts of giant’s bones and skeletons being found all over North America have been recorded. This news used be written about in newspapers, and you can find what looks like photographic proof of this online. The giant bones were of ‘people’ who were 8 feet tall, with 36-inch skulls. Some had double rows of teeth. They were found in burial grounds, stone crypts, ancient battlefields, and near Serpent Mounds.
Yet, 100 years later all of the information about the giants has been hidden from official sources. Some say that the Smithsonian holds all of the information and proof, including the bones, in secret. Others say everything has been hidden using the 1990 Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). Much of what was hidden can be found in the book Giants on Record, including an old postcard showing a 7-feet skeleton found at the Serpent Mound in Ohio.
Serpent Mounds’ Alien Connections
The giants have been long connected to extraterrestrial influences. They may have come from out of space like ‘gods’ or at least have DNA from other non-human species.
If you watch the show “Ancient Aliens” one of the episodes discusses this possible connection. The Serpent Mound may very well be an intergalactic portal, which is why there are many UFO sightings above it. There is also a theory that the mound was once used as a site for alien visitors to mine fuel for their spaceships.
What is also an interesting fact is that the Serpent Mound in Ohio lies inside a 5-mile crater created by a meteor. Such a crash is rare, and only 28 craters from meteors exist in the U.S.
Whether you lean towards the giant or alien theory, or a sacred Native American site, it is worth to see for yourself and feel the energy that the place radiates. It is truly extraordinary.
How To Visit Serpent Mounds
The Serpent Mound in Ohio is open every single day of the year from 9 a.m. until dusk, and anyone can visit it for a small fee. The hours are extended for solstices and equinoxes. The other serpent mounds are a little trickier to find. Many are long gone.
There was a different, unknown mound in Ohio at Stubbs Earthworks, but it was destroyed in the 1970s by a gravel company. The oldest serpent was located at Tick Island, Florida, and it was mined away for the locals. The latest serpent that was destroyed in 2017 was located in Whiteshell Provincial Park in Manitoba, Canada.
A few still stand.
A mound at Little Cut Foot Sioux Lake, Itasca County, Minnesota is the youngest one. This one is completely formed by the Native American history; it serves as a battle monument, and is not open to public.
Serpent Mounds site in Rice Lake, Ontario is owned by the Hiawatha First Nation, and is also closed to visitors.
The youngest discovered mound is the Skeleton Mountain Snake Effigy in Alabama. It was found in 2003.
Then there is the Des Plains River Snake Effigy in Chicago, Illinois, discovered in 1935. Today it located in Isabel Wasson Nature Preserve, but is hard to get to, and not accessible in bad weather.
These sites have been explored and fought for by Jeffrey Wilson from Friends of The Serpent Mound who is dedicated and on a mission to saving these structures by spreading the knowledge about them.
