I grew up in Northern NV and actually heard this story from a Paiute medicine man. The story he told me had a little more detail than the OP's. He told me this tribe, he referred to them as the "Red Indians" used to terrorize the people through out Northern Nevada. The "Red Indians" where giants he said average 12 feet tall or so with red hair or as he put it "Covered in a fine red hair". He also made it clear these giants where not Humans.They would periodically raid Paiute and Shoshoni villages kidnapping mostly women and children while the men where hunting or engaged in similar activities away from home. The giants would eat the captives.

So you 'agree' with the Wickileak article where some author
" suggests that the 'giant' interpretation of the skeletons from Lovelock Cave and other dry caves in Nevada was started by entrpreneurs setting up tourist displays"
As for the rest of your post - it amounts to 'some Archeologists turned up and took everything away' - afterwards they showed some non-controversial stuff!
How about the jaw-bone, has that ever been analysed?
What about the reports of early navigators - do you suppose they made all that up for fun?

Which ones? The cave artifacts were found by guano miners within the past 120 years. Early navigators didn't hear such tales.

From: "Smithsonian Information" To: firstname.lastname@example.org Jack Andrews Your online inquiry of May 17 has been received in this office for response. Staff in our Office of Smithsonian Archives advise that neither G.E. Kincaid nor S. A. Jordan were ever employed by the Smithsonian. Further, they have no proof that these people ever existed. These two names appear in an article published in the Phoenix Gazette on April 5, 1909 that alleges that G.E. Kincaid and S.A. Jordan were Smithsonian employees responsible for locating Egyptian temples in the Grand Canyon. Please note, however, that this story is untrue. The only records of G. E. Kincaid and S.A. Jordan in the Smithsonian Archives are the 1909 Phoenix Gazette newspaper article, from which this myth appears to have originated, inquiries regarding the story, and the Smithsonian Institution responses to those letters. Your interest in the Smithsonian Institution is appreciated. 3/95/

Search the net for "Egyptians in the Grand Canyon" from the early 1900's.
Basic story: Smithsonian sent archaeologists, found cave high up a wall with steps going down in a canyon, huge swords, giant sacrophogi, huge rooms, hieroglyphics etc. Skeletons of huge people unknown.
Evidence turned in to Smithsonian in Washington disappeared, and to this day, no one in the area of the Grand Canyon is allowed in that particular area to investigate.
Boudicca, the Giant Queen When some Roman centurions plundered the estate of Prasutagus, king of the Iceni, and raped his two daughters, his giant red-haired widow, Queen Boudicca, grabbed a spear and led an uprising against their Roman overlords that became the bloodiest inflicted upon the Latins during their long occupation of Britain. The rebel-lion also cost the Celts eighty thousand of their own people. According to the Roman historian Dio Cassius, the Amazon-like queen was no beauty. "She was enormous of frame, terrifying of mien, and with a rough, shrill voice," he writes. "A great mass of bright red hair fell down to her knees; she wore a huge twisted torque of gold, and a tunic of many colors, over which was a thick mantle held by a brooch. When she grasped a spear, it was to strike fear into all who observed her."8 (See Caesar's Triumph over the Giants)
Machnow In 1882, at Charkow, Russia, a baby named Machnow was born. He eventually grew to a height of nine feet three inches and weighed three hundred and sixty pounds. Machnow thus became history's tallest man on record, with even the most conservative of British encyclopedias accepting the above figure as a true and accurate measurement. "From his wrist to the top of his second finger," reports the February 10, 1905, issue of The Times, "he measured 2 ft." The Russian giant exhibited in London, the United States, Germany, Holland, and elsewhere.2
AEnotherus In his Annals of Bavaria, Aventine writes that a giant named Ænotherus, who threw down whole battalions like mowing grass, fought on the Emperor Charlemagne's side. The huge warrior hailed from Turgan, near the Lake of Constance. (See Charlemagne) Allia, Battle of At the little river Allia, in 387 B.C., the Senone giants put the proud Roman army to a hasty, humiliating flight. Upon hearing the news of the defeat, practically the entire population of Rome fled the city. Shortly afterward, the revengeful giants burned Rome to the ground. (See Rome vs Senone Giants) Angers' Giant A skeleton found in 1692 in a tomb near Angers, France, measured seventeen feet four inches. (See Graveyards of the Giants)

hahahahaha. those silly mutant vikings, tryin to mess with those lil native americans. at least thats what they may be. personally, i think we know of about 70% of most species, and i think ther ones we will find most interesting are going to be deep undetrground or undersea. who knows, they may have been atlantean survivors, or past societies remnants. i know if we genetically modified ourselves to hulk-status, it would be a legend in a millenium, when they were increasingly rare/being forced away by the advancing of western society
local warriors would go hunt the "mutant" humans and the villiages would write fantastic stories about them, and call them ogres, and trolls, and cyclops, and titans. oh wait, it seems that this may already be plausible

You should probably know something about mormons before saying that........besides mormon religion is based in Utah, not Nevada.......
Yes ive heard of this before several times, if you do a search you can find info, there was also a special on TV about it.
Reportedly the Giants were read headed with beards, there are skulls in the museum of natural history , that were found from the caves.
