There is a race of dwarves living in subterranean dwellings, caves and tunnel systems all across earth. Legends, stories and accounts from across the
globe have led me to believe so. They are an ancient race. They are aware of us, we are not much aware of them because they hide. Join me in
discovering these aliens among us.
In the Atlas Mountains of Morroco it is said that dwarves live in caves and mountains. They have been seen and reported by Morrocons since hundreds of
years and up until a hundred years ago have apparently even interacted with humans living there. If you would like to investigate the Dwarves of this
area you could begin with this September 1891 article from the N.Y. Times entitled
Dwarfs and Dwarf Worship
In Scandanavian legend and Norse Mythology one of the dwarf-races are called "the dark elves" and live in caves, mines and mountains. They are said
to be excellent metalworkers and also rumored to have supernatural powers.
The Troll is another figure from Norse Mythology. The word "Troll" literally means "taken to the mountain". Legend has it that if beautiful women
or infants disappeared that there was a troll who had taken them to the mountains or underground. This 15th century picture by Olaus Magnus depicts
the subterranean place of dwarves:
In Scandinvian the word "Vette" or "Vaette" also refers to "the little people" or the "subterranean ones". They are known all the way from
Iceland to Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. More info on Scandinavian Mythology
Similar legends exist in Germanic mythology which probably shares ancient roots with Scandinavian. According to Germanic tales dwarves live in caves
and subterranean dwellings and are deformed. This post on another thread shows
of German Mythology. But the popular concept that dwarves
are only found in Northern European mythology is false.
In South-Africa a race of dwarves called the "cagn-cagn" by the natives were "driven into the mountains" in ancient times. Similar legends can be
found all over Africa. On the other side of the world, in Indonesia, it turned out that their ancient legends of a dwarf-race may be true as actual
skeletal remains of such a "little person" were found. See this article for more:
Indonesian "Hobbit" legend may be factual
South and Central American legends and myths are full of dwarves and here again are connected to mountains and caves. The mountain-cave theme is so
universal it should be obvious that there must be some common root to these ideas.North American legends speak of "little people" who live at caves
and mountainsides. A Cherokee legend calls the little people "spirits" whos distant drums can sometimes be heard inside mountains
. Of the
little people there are good ones and bad ones and the bad ones sometimes steal children. The friendly little people dont steal babys but are great
metal workers, artists and musicians. Then there are also the friendly but mischievious little people described across the globe.
. Here are
from other places according to which:
The Yakama Indians of the east slope of the Cascade Mountains of Washington State have a legend, persisting to this day, of the "Stick People"
or little ones that live high in the hills. Some hills are sacred places for the Stick People and should not be trammeled. If they are visited, the
Stick People will do you harm. Also, the Stick People do a lot of unprovoked mischief,
On Andros Island, Bahamas, is a legend of mischievous, small entities called Chickcharnies. The stories tell of little people that once inhabited
the remote forests of the island, that were highly aggressive, and that could turn their heads all the way around. Chickcharnies are reported only
from Andros Island and are said to have three fingers, three toes, and red eyes.
On the island of Kaua'i, Hawaiian Islands, is the legend of the Menehune, a fabled (and possibly real, according to Hadley and Valier 1993) race
of smaller people. The Menehune may have traveled to the Hawaiian Islands before other Polynesian settlers arrived there.

I have yet to find an area in the world which does not
have legends of little people. One of the most remarkable accounts I have come across is
the story of The Green Children of Woolpit
. One day, in the English village of
Woolpit of the 12th Century two children showed up who did not speak any known language, had green skin and initially refused all foods except for
green beans. Later the boy died and his sister learned to speak English. And as she spoke she told them where she is from: From a subterranean world.
The story was recorded and written down by two different sources. These are pictures of an ancient Egyptian dwarf:
Across the globe the history of the subterranean dwarf-race is recorded. And apparently it is in the interest of either the dwarfs or other interest
groups to keep the issue quiet.
