Bones of a 8-9 Foot Indian – La Crosse Wi

 

 This article was posted in Facebook today by my friend: Micah Ewes.  This is a
typical newspaper article that was posted back the 1800’s when people were digging giant skeletons out of their graves.  It is sad that we say that these articles inconclusive.  However, there are too many to disregard the messages that they send, isn’t there?  I’d say that Micah has over 1000 articles that he has gathered over the years.  So, enjoy …. giants existed.  And, I believe that they were two different races:  a black haired race that was eventually replaced by a red-haired race.

A 28 inch tibia is almost twice as long as normal. A skull 15 inches from chin to crown is also about double. If these dimensions are accurate that would be a very large person. Lots of reports do exist with these limb dimensions considerably exceeding 20 inches, and these are the reports I find potentially interesting if any primary sources could be tracked, as it tends to suggest an actual very large individual rather than the occasional instances of normal sized bones being miscalculated, or a skeleton stretching in situ in the grave and disarticulating. More data is needed to resolve these questions.
