On April 5, 1909, a newspaper in Phoenix, Arizona, called the Arizona Gazette, published an article in its evening addition. The story was titled “Explorations in the Grand Canyon”, and was posted anonymously. The account tells of project, under the direction of Professor S. A. Jordan, where Smithsonian-backed adventurer G. E. Kinkaid was traveling alone in a wooden boat in search of “mineral”. He claims to have seen “stains in the sediment”, whereupon he landed his boat, made his way up the side of the canyon, walked past “steps” and found the cave entrance. Upon entering the cave, the story tells of elaborate paths, mammoth sized rooms, an underground citadel, enough space to accommodate 50,000 people, idols, tablets, weapons, copper instruments, and, most shockingly… Egyptian Mummies??
The Pseudo-Archaeologists are at it again! And despite copious amounts of evidence pointing out how false the story is, the myth lives on, and in fact, there seems to be a growing paranoia that archaeologists are destroying the “truth” of man’s past.
An Odd Place to Find Egyptians anthropology.msu.edu...
https://sites.google.com/site/ancientegyptiansinamerica/ancient-egyptians-grand-canyon The Smithsonian Archaelogist think that that this unfinished Egyptian Pyramid in the Grand Canyon is a burial Tomb because there is a entrance Tunnel that is blocked a few feet inside the Pyramid.. But the National Park Sevrice will not allow the Archaeologist to excavate any of the Pyramids in the Grand Canyon.

well that maybe true to some extent, but for the U.S. Government go to the point of making up a story about finding a ancient Egyptian tomb filled with artifacts and mummies there was no need. they would just write EO's or pass a law like they did.
no need for the subterfuge, the first attempt to have it declared a National Park was in 1882 by then senator Benjamin Harrison, and when he became president he set aside land for the park( Grand Canyon Forest Reserve) and then Theodore Roosevelt went further in 1906 and took even more for a game preserve( Grand Canyon Game Preserve), then in 1908 he declared the whole canyon a national monument,
there was no need for bs.
Ever ask yourself why the giants never crossed the border into Canada? No newspaper accounts here.
