Here's my thought on your question:
I'm wondering if it might have to do with the history of their ancient culture ?
In order to understand where a person's coming from, you need to put yourself in their shoes in order to get a better understanding of their thought processes.
So on that note: Many ancient cultures (cultures that are millenia older than our own western cultures) have old drawings and texts of some pretty fascinating stuff relating to "higher advanced beings" - flying machinery, beings that came down from the sky, beings that taught their ancestors advanced technologies, etc.
Thus, perhaps these sorts of stories were passed down through the generations, giving way to a more open-minded view of the possibilities to "alien" influence going on elsewhere in the present time too ?
Maybe it just simply boils down to these types of elder cultures are more malleable towards some of these so-called "crazy" ideas than we are.
Crazy to us, but maybe not so crazy to them.
