Secret Underground Tunnels Past & Present

Secret Underground Tunnels Past & Present


As I pointed out in the previous report in this series, the origin of at least some of the Ancient Americans of North America lays to the South. We also know of the Ancient tunnels to be found in Mexico and Central and South America. But, do we find evidence of these ancient tunnels in the United States?

In Native American Myths & Mysteries (1991) by Vincent H. Gaddis in chapter IV titled Tunnels of the Titans we find.

“Throughout all the Americas there are legends of archaic avenues, racial memories of subterranean passages stretching for miles. After the great cataclysm the ancestral North Indians lived in the vast cavern complex until it was safe to return to the upper world. The story is spread through many tribes, from the kivas of the Pueblos to the lodges of the Blackfeet, from the campfires of the eastern woodland tribes before their dispersion.

“The Mandans of the northwestern states, some of whom had blue eyes and silky hair … They said the first man to emerge from the tunnels were the Histoppa or the “tattooed ones.” Having left safety too soon, they perished. The rest, who remained below, waited until a bright light dispelled the darkness on the surface…”

“The Apaches’ have a legend that their remote ancestors came from a large island in the eastern sea where there were great buildings and ports for ships. The Fire Dragon arose, and their ancestors had to flee to mountains far away to the south. Later they were forced to take refuge in immense and ancient tunnels through which they wandered for years…”

(Page 39).

As we can see, many of these early Americans knew of these ancient tunnels. Could these tunnels have anything to do with the modern tunnels we have heard so much about in the last few years?

One of the areas rumored to have an underground complex and tunnels and is off limits to most people is the area around White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.

David Hatcher Childress in his beautifully written Lost Cities of North & Central America (1992) descries the secret headquarters of Apache Chief Victorio.

“Victorio Peak and Hard Scrabble Peak, as well as Geronimo Peak, were all honeycombed with tunnels, caves and secret entrances. The Hard Scrabble entrance led down a flight of steps to an underground river. The last step was booby trapped with a deadly arrow device. It is all like out of some 40s cliffhanger serial”.

(Page 313).

Mr. Childress writes of his talk with Richard Dannelly, a local resident of Sedona, Arizona and author of the book Sedona, Power Spot Vortex. Dannelly told him,

“Some friends of mine had discovered a tunnel that goes underground for quite a distance in the Superstition Mountains.

Yet every time they tried to explore the cave, a strange fear and feeling of dread would overtake the whole party, and they would always turn back.” They were sent to a psychic who told them of a man who would lead them into the tunnel without fear. “With this man as their guide they were able to penetrate further into the tunnel…” Deep inside … “the remains of ancient structures and walls made out of well dressed rock were found. They then discovered at this place a spiral staircase built out of cut stones that down, down, down, down into the earth.

“After some discussion, it was decided that their guide should descent the stairs …


He did so, following the staircase into the deep bowels of the earth. After some tome, he came to a large room with more cut stone. A gigantic rock-cut throne, big enough for a giant, or two people sitting together, was in the middle of the room.

“Artifacts were on the walls, though (he didn’t) know what they were. The man returned up the staircase and reported what he discovered. The others tried to convince him to return to the room and bring some of the artifacts back up, but he refused. The team then left the tunnel, and today the entrance is still a secret.”

(Pages 308-309).

Due to coverage on the nationally long running NBC series Unsolved Mysteries most of us are familiar with the story of Doc Noss and the Lost La Rue Mines. David Hatcher Childress covers the story in depth in Lost Cities of North and Central America (1986).

He sites a book, “100 Tons of Gold” (1978) by David Chandler. Chandler wrote,

“In 1937 a half-Indian podiatrist named Doc Noss discovered a cache of Apache gold on what is now the White Sands Missile Range … Much of the treasure was in the form of hundreds of stacked gold bars, plus other artifacts, such as swords, goblets, crowns, statues and other things … Doc Noss was shot and killed by his partner Charlie Ryan in March of 1949 … Noss was known to have taken at least 88 bars of gold out of the hidden tunnels inside the mountain.”

(Pages 309-310).

Childress continues this revealing report:

“Because of an article published in the November, 1968 issue of True Treasure magazine there was renewed interest in the fabulous treasure, and a prospector named Harvey Snow was approached by three ranchers who lived in the area west of the Victorio Peak site. Snow had spent 25 years exploring the entire White Sands area, and the ranchers felt that Snow could lead them into the treasure area, bypassing the Army patrols that guarded the missile range.”

Because of a story told Snow many years before by a cowboy who had followed Doc Noss to a hidden tunnel, he believed that the treasure was not at Victorio Peak, but on another peak, Hard Scrabble Peak which was also on government property.

As Mr. Childress tell us:

“Snow’s incredible story is then related by Mr. Chandler; On the second day I found the cave with the sloping steps. I went down the steps; down and down. I don’t know how far. I estimated maybe thirteen hundred or fourteen hundred steps. The bottom step, the last one was rounded at the bottom so that when you stepped on it, it would roll. It was tied to a bow and arrow with rawhide, but the rawhide had rotted a long time ago. I got in there.”

(Page 310)

At the bottom of the steps Snow described a big room with a stream of hot water running through it. Snow followed the tunnel from room to room; sometimes the tunnel would become so narrow that he had to get down on his hands and knees. In one room Snow reported,

“I found some things. I found small stacks … one of gold, one of copper and one of silver.”

”I figured I would come back for that and went on. I next came to a big room. Here there were a bunch of side tunnels running north and south. They were all natural, nothing man made. Here where they intersected, they made a big W. I did not go down these tunnels, I stayed with the stream going west … At the far end of the main room I found some things I cannot tell you about…”

(Page 311).

“Snow’s story is fascinating and virtually unbelievable to most people. He walked 14 miles in an underground tunnel. The 1400 steps or so that he walked down to the subterranean river must have been a good 800 or 900 feet below the entrance. The tunnel was crossed at least in one spot by another tunnel running at a right angle to the one he was following.”

(Pages 113-114).

As we can see from these reports, there exists under the White Sands New Mexico area an extensive system of lengthy tunnels that have been there for ages. It seems to me that if the government wanted underground bases they would make use of these existing tunnels, yet modern researchers never seem to even hint of their existence. Why not?

Mr. Childress made a telling observation concerning government involvement:

“The gold that was at one time stored in Victorio Peak has been seized by the U.S. government, particularly the Army and the CIA.”

And I thought the CIA was concerned with foreign intelligence. Where’s the connection? The Inner Beings perhaps?

“The Army was known to have bulldozed the peak out, and even place a steel door over the entrance to the mountain … The Army assured the state that there was no gold in Victorio Peak and never has been.”

“Never-the-less Chandler shows that a top secret operation took place at White Sands Missile Range on August 10, 1961. On this date the Secret Service, with the help of certain Army personnel at the range recovered the gold, and moved it to various locations for various purposes.”

These claims are backed up by, of all people, Former White House counsel, John Dean in his book Blind Ambition (1976). In it he told of CIA operations dealing with bars of gold.

“Egil Krogh had described to me how, when he was bored with his deskwork, he had carried bars of gold bullion through Asia’s ‘Golden Triangle’ in CIA planes and bargained with drug chieftains … The gold bars used in these illegal, clandestine operations allegedly came from the tunnel system inside of Victorio Peak.”

(Pages 314-315).

Besides furnishing our corrupt government with the finances to destroy a generation of Americans with dangerous drugs, the bastards had a large tunnel system in place. It stands to reason that this is one of the systems they are using for their nefarious and black deeds.

When will the American people wake up to the fact that there are a lot of horrible things going on … right below our feet?

The Four Corners

Another popular place for talk of underground activity is the area known as the Four Corners. This is the place where Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico meet to share a common border. According to intelligence reports from several of my sources there are “at least six underground facilities in this area.” This is also the area where a large number of people died a “mysterious” death a few years back. Are there connections?

This harsh but beautiful arid land is also where the government decided to place several Indian Reservations. However, the Hopi Indians have been in this area as long as they can remember and luckily for us, their history of origin contains important details not found in the memory of other tribes.

The Hopi believe that this world we live in is the Fourth World and the other three are inside the earth. In stages, and through many hardships, they emerged from a hole called Sipapu, entrance to the Hopi underground. Bruce A. Walton (Branton)mtells us in A Guide to the Inner Earth (1983):

“It is a sacred place of pilgrimage for the Hopi, at the bottom of the Canyon of the Little Colorado above it’s junction with the Colorado River.”

(Page 66).

But, unlike most of the emergence stories of the other clans, the Hopi describe the city near from which they came. This city is called Palitkwapi, meaning “legendary Red City of the South.” It is interesting to note that Frank Waters tells us in The Book of the Hopi (1965)

“No one knows where Palatkwapi might have been. Some of our Hopi spokesmen, who are able to read Hopi meanings from symbols and pictographs carved on Mayan stelae and temple walls, believe that the center of the Mayan Old Empire, Palenque, in Chiapas, Mexico was the Hopi legendary city of Palatkwapi.”

(Notes: Page 68).

In support of this theory of Palatkwapi being the same city as Palenque browse through any of the many National geographic magazines containing photos and paintings of the mysterious Mayan ruins and it won’t take you long to realize that the Ancient Mayan cities were predominantly bright red. And if you’ll read Plasma Guns & Sub-riders in THEI Volume 1 #3, you’ll find my research concerning Lord Pacal. Lord Pacal was sent from Valum Chivin (the underworld) to Valum Votan (the upper world) and there he founded the city of Palenque. This we see gives us a direct link of unbroken evidence of a migration of people northward from the Inner Lands.


By the use of thugs and murders, after Queen Isabelle and Columbus double-crossed the elitist the “Keepers of the Secret” tried to destroy the true history of the origin of many Native Americans. However, by studying the oral history of these wise people we find that they came from the Inner Lands. Before the controllers got their hands on the truth and completely covered it over it a few American Archaeology books were written which tell the true story of people migrating south to north.

We have traced the Hopi tribe from their emergence near the ancient Mexican town of Palatkwapi/Palenque their present home in the Four Corners. We have looked at many accounts of underground passages in the Four Corners and the White Sands area of New Mexico. Accounts recorded long before today’s researchers started sending out reams of reports proving the government has control of underground facilities in these and other areas of the world, yet not a word on the possible origin of the ancient underground excavations. But, using what we know of these underground passageways, we can safely state that they were probably the trade routes connecting the Inner World with the Outer world.

Now the next question that comes to mind … what is our corrupt government doing in this area between the two worlds? We’ll never know the truth until we quit looking with glazed eyes off into space, and turn our attention to the evidence that is right under our feet.


Myths and stories of an “underworld” are the oldest and most persistent memories of man and have passed from culture to culture since recorder time began.

Many describe it as a paradise. Others … a fire filled hell and the home of monsters and devils whose sole aim is to torment, and finally conquer mankind. A good study of this aspect of the hollow earth story is Subterranean Worlds (1989) by Walter Kafton-Minkel. While Mr. Kafton-Minkel leaves no doubt that he is a total skeptic when it comes to the reality of the subterranean worlds, he has written a well documented, easy to read overview of the whole subterranean/hollow world subject from ancient times to the present.

The subtitle of the whole hollow earth subject of his informative book tells it all:

“100,000 years of dragons, dwarfs, the dead, lost races & UFO’s from inside of the earth.”

I recommend it to anyone who would like to read a one-volume history for man’s search for the truth about this intriguing subject. Just keep in mind that this book was written from the establishment viewpoint … however, the author is to be commended for not letting this get in the way of excellent reporting.

Our quest, however, does not lead us in the direction of myths. Hard evidence is what we seek. The research I am currently working on (1990) points toward some exciting possibilities.

Harold T. Wilkins in his 1956 pre-history study Mysteries of Ancient South America presents the case of a civilization centered in Central and South America that existed long before the ancient civilizations of Akkad, Sumer and Egypt. In fact beginning with a “bearded white race of highly civilized people” in the Brazilian Highlands Mr. Wilkins provides the evidence that proves:

“Tropical South America including as it does, the most ancient land in the world never submerged by the ocean, and never ground under the tremendous glaciers of the Ice Ages, may very well have been the cradle of the earth’s civilization, from which it spread outwards to Europe and Africa on the one side and Asia on the other.”

He puts forth the theory, these “bearded white men”, came from Atlantis. However, some of his evidence points in another direction … down into the earth.

In 1939 Mr. Wilkins obtained a transcript of a manuscript written in 1753 by a treasure hunter in Brazil. It tells of the “lust for gold” sending them deeper and deeper into the Brazilian wilderness and the discovery, after much hardship,

of a “great city of ancient date, without inhabitants, that was discovered in the year 1753.”

Here are excerpts of the narration that pertains to our quest:

“We went into the strange city, and we came on a road (street: rua) of great length. And a well set-out plaza (una plaza regular), besides, in it, and in the middle of the plaza a column of black stone of extraordinary grandeur, on whose summit was a statue of a man (homo ordinaria: not a god, or demi-god) with a hand on his left hip and Right arm out-stretched, pointing with the index finger to the north pole…”

(page 43).

“…opposite this plaza there runs very swiftly, a most deep (caudaloso) and wide river, with spacious banks, that were very pleasing to the eye…

“Three days we journeyed down the river, and we stumbled on a cataract (una catadupa) of such roaring noise and commotion of foaming water that we supposed the mouths of the most talked about Nile could not have made more trouble or booming or offered more resistance to our further progress… on the eastern side of this cataract, we found various subterranean hollows (subcavoes) and frightful holes, and made trial of their depths with ropes; but after many attempts we were never able to plum their depths.”

(Pages 44-45).

This story is very similar to the lure that led to the disappearance of Col. Percy Harrison Fawcett, last of the great explorers, along with his son Jack and their companion Raleigh Rimell in the still-unexplored jungles of Brazil in 1925.

Lost Trails, Lost Cities (1953) is a collection of Col. Fawcett’s manuscripts, letters and other records selected and arranged by his son, Brian Fawcett.

Col. Fawcett wrote:

“…the story begins in 1743, when a native of Minas GeradisM, whose name has not been preserved, decided to make a search for the lost mines of Muribeca.”

(Page 5).


[Note the 10 years difference in the two stories].

Just as in the story told by Mr. Wilkins, a group of treasure hunters go through living hell until they come upon a mysterious abandoned city of colossal stone hidden away in the steaming jungle. Col. Faucett tells how the group entered the silent city:

“Huddled together like a flock of frightened sheep, the men proceeded down the street and came to a vast square. Here in the center was a huge column of black stone, and upon it the effigy of a man in perfect preservation, with one hand on his hip and the other pointing north.

(Page 9)

It’s obvious that Col. Fawcett and Mr. Wilkins are reporting on the same city from the same manuscript. However it should be noted that Col. Fawcett in telling of another “lost city” stated:

“It too was distinguished by the remains of a statue of a great black pedestal in the middle of a square.”

(Page 13).

You can’t help but wonder … was this statue also pointing towards the north? As Col. Fawcett continues his narration, his group is also following a river:

“…fifty miles down (river) they came to a mighty waterfall, and in an adjoining cliff face were found distinct signs of mine workings.

(Page 11).

“Investigation proved the suspected mind shafts to be holes they had no means of exploring, but at the mouths lay scattered about a quality of rich silver ore.”

(Page 12).

This information leads one to the conclusion that it’s obvious these “holes”, so deep that the witnesses “were never able to plumb their depths” was not the source of the rich silver oar found “scattered about.” No one would work a mine that you couldn’t even walk into. But, I believe there is a simple, practical explanation.

Historians tell us that even though the Spanish and others plundered many shiploads of gold, silver and other treasures from the peoples of the Americas, the thieves actually got very little compared with what was hidden from the invaders.

On pages 145-155 of Mysteries of Ancient South America Mr. Wilkens writes:

“Where do whispered native Quichua (direct descendents of the Inca Peruvians) traditions say these Lost Inca hoards lie? In sealed caves to which mystic hieroglyphs, whose key is possessed only by one descendent of the Inca at a time in each generation … and in strange underground “subterranean”, thousands of years old which may have been made by a mysterious and highly civilized vanished race of South America in a day when ancient Peruvians themselves, were a mere wandering tribe of barbarians, if not savages, roaming the cordilleras and the high passes…”

Was Col. Faucett and his party on the trail of one of these “subterranean” of the vanished civilization when he disappeared into the unknown? (In a future report we’ll continue with the strange story of Col. Faucett, but for now lets continue with our study of possible subterranean connections).

Trade Routes of the Ancients?

On page 167 Wilkins relates the story from about 1844, when a Catholic priest was called to the deathbed of an old Quichua Indian. The dying man told a story about,

“the closing of the amazing tunnel-labyrinths, by the high priest of the sun temple of old Cuzco, and the magicians, under the eye of the Imperial consort of the late Emperor Atahualpa…

“One of the approaches to the great tunnels lay, and still lies, near old Cuzco, but it is masked beyond discovery. This hidden approach leads directly into an immense “subterranean,” which runs from Cuzco to Lima, as the crow flies, a distance of 389 miles! Then turning southwards, the great tunnel extends into what until about 1868 was modern Bolivia, about 900 miles! [Emphasis by Mr. Wilkins).

He continues to tell of other connecting tunnels like the,

“former Bolivian corridor (today located in Chile) runs southwards, passing through Yarapacca and Cobijo, which are in modern Chile. It must then turn eastwards, passing through or under the cordillera and skirting the mysterious Atacama desert of Northern Chile … The southern end of the tunnel is, thus, lost somewhere in this mysterious salt desert of Atacama…”

(Pages 169-170).

Naturally the establishment “experts” shrugged Mr. Wilkins findings off as “myths and legends.”

Then in his 1972 bestseller, The Gold of the Gods world famous author/adventurer Eric von Daniken tells the story of the “discovery” of a secret entrance to these subterranean passages which proves Mr. Wilkins to be right.

Von Daniken begins:

“To me this is the most incredible, fantastic story of the century. It could easily have come straight from the realms of science fiction if I had not seen and photographed the incredible truth in person … A gigantic system of tunnels, thousands of miles in length and built by unknown constructors at some unknown date, lies hidden deep below the South American continent. Hundreds of miles of underground passages have already been explored and measured in Ecuador and Peru. This is only the beginning, yet the world knows nothing about it.”

(Page 1).

He tells us about the find by Juan Moricz who,

“stumbled on the underground passages in June 1965, during his research work, in which he was ably assisted by Peruvian Indians, who acted as skilled intermediaries between him and their tricky fellow tribesmen. Being cautious by nature and skeptical as befitting a scholar, he kept silent for three years. Not until he had covered many miles of underground passages and found all kinds of remarkable objects” did he tell anyone.

(Page 4)

Juan Moricz escorted Eric von Daniken and Franz Seiner, Mr. von Daniken’s traveling companion, on a trip into the subterranean.

Mr. von Daniken describes the adventure:

“This entrance, cut in the rock and wide as a barn door, is situated in the Province of Morona-Santiago, in the triangle formed by Gualaquiza-San Antonio-Yaupi, a region inhabited by hostile Indians. Suddenly, from one step to another, broad daylight changed to pitch-blackness. Birds fluttered past our heads. We felt the draught they created and shrank back. We switched on our torches and the lamps on our helmets, and there in front of us was the gaping hole which led into the depths. We slid down a rope to the first platform 250 feet below the surface.

From there we made two further descents of 250 feet. Then our visit to the age-old underworld of a strange unknown race really began. The passages all form right angles. Sometimes they were narrow, sometimes wide. The walls are smooth and often seem to be polished. The ceilings are flat and at times look as if they were covered with a kind of glaze. Obviously these passages did not originate from natural causes… they look more like contemporary air-raid shelters!”

(Pages 5-6).

Eric von Daniken continues:

“As I was feeling and examining ceilings and walls I burst out laughing and the sound echoed through the tunnels. Moricz shone his torch in my face:

““ What’s wrong? Have you gone crazy?””

““ I’d like to see the archaeologist with the nerve to tell me this work was done with hand-axes!””

“My doubts about the existence of the underground tunnels vanished as if by magic and I felt tremendously happy. Moricz said that passages like those through which we were going extended for hundreds of miles under the soil of Ecuador and Peru.”

(Pages 5-7).

Now that we have proof that these ancient intelligently constructed tunnels do, in fact, exist we should return to Harold T. Wilkins and one last story from Mysteries of Ancient South America.

“Fuentes, who lived about AD 1689, and wrote an unpublished manuscript history of Guatemala speaks of the amazingly large and ancient towns (inhabited by an unknown and long vanished race) found there by the conquistadors. He said: “

“ The marvelous structure of the tunnels (subterranea) of the Pueblo of Puchuta, being of the most firm and solid of cement, runs and continues through the interior of the land for the prolonged distance of nine leagues to the pueblo of Tecpan, Guatemala…”

“He gave no hint of the uses to which these amazing tunnels, more than thirty miles long, but on the basis of the old Castilian league, were put here by these ancient races of old America.”

(Page 176).

Once again the possibility overlooked is the obvious one. These tunnels are probably ancient trade routes between the under-people and their surface co-Planetarians. They were in use in the ancient times when there was trade and communications between the Old World.

Fuentes continues with what may be the answer to another “mystery.”

“It may be too, that the great tunnel of the Incas had a branch, underground, leading into the forests, eastwards of Cuzco, and in that direction taken by Inca Tupac Amaru, his army, and his host of camp-following refugees, in the late sixteenth century. Maybe, the fleeing Peruvians vanished into these mysterious tunnels, and left only the whispering leaves of the trees of the dense green forests, as mute witness of their secret exits.”

(Page 176).

Fuentes might just be right. As history has shown, the Inca people disappeared with much of their treasure without a trace. Is it possible they, did in fact, seek the safety of the ancient passages and then continued downward into the lands at the center of the earth, never to appear on the surface of the earth again?

Did Col. Faucett and his party, in following the trail of the lost city and “subterranean” ended up tracing the lost Inca civilization into the underworld?
