Not so sure myself if this belongs in aliens or this forum. Since this forum deals with conspiracies in beliefs "religions", I figured it fit here. If you like a good long read, this article is for you, even I didn't finish reading it before posting, there is alot just to get to page two!

"Most of you who read this are probably white men of a blood only a century or two out of Europe. You speak in your papers of the Flying Saucers or Mystery Ships as something new, and strangely typical of the twentieth century."

A Navaho Story

So is this, like many other Native American legends, more than it seems to be? That's a choice left to those who read the above.

What it is, is pure bunk.

I did some research on it, including researching words and names in the Paiute and Navajo languages. "Oga-Make" is not a name (or words) in either language -- in fact, it's not words/names in ANY AmerInd language.


"'We, the Paiute Nation, have known of these ships for untold generations. We also believe that we know something of the people who fly them. They are called The Hav-musuvs.'

Again, not a word in any language of the AmerInds. There's no legends that match this one.

Since I happen to be studying rock art (in the process of doing a student film about this), I can also say that these "flying canoes" and so forth are not depicted anywhere. It's kind of hard to overlook something like that, and you'd expect (as with horses when whites came to America) there would be other cultural references and artifacts from this.

In fact, the other tribes of the area would have similar stories. They don't.

I'm in a hurry and must head out, but basically the tale is linguistically and mythically one created by a Caucasian and not by an AmerInd.

many of the legends and stories of the people have never been told outside
the the tribe or even outside the circle of the medicine men.. this holds true
even today.
