The Hand-Shake Ritual: (Exploring polydactyly and Giants in Ancient cultures)

How many handshake rituals have you participated in, in your lifetime? I’m guessing thousands. And yes, I said ritual. Have you ever wondered why it is you do this? Couriouser yet, have you ever wondered why nearly every culture on earth has partaken in this ritual (or a variant)since before recorded history? What exactly is taking when you shake another’s hand? What is being exchanged? conveyed? Shared?

For Westerners, the handshake is a common if not benign social custom representing little more than a formality. However, for most other cultures the ritual of shaking hands or the “pressing of flesh” embodies something much more profound. Foreign to the Western mind, most cultures are aware that there is an exchange of energy when two people join hands. I personally know a few Native Americans who do not shake hands for this very reason. When 80% of communication takes place nonverbally it is obvious that much more is going on than first meets the eye. And while it is true that not every culture shakes hands, it is worth noting that the showing of hands in one form or another still takes place. 

Like the creation-flood stories which accompany nearly every account on earth, stories of giants and the ritual shaking of hands can be found from our great modern cities to the deepest recesses of civilization. Of course, modern-day scientists chalk it up to evolutionary behaviorism and have generated mountains of data for their theories to stand upon. But, if one is to take our collective creation myths into account, there is a far simpler explanation for this behavior. The shaking or showing of hands, Polydactyly, and Giants historically go hand in hand. 

 The showing or shaking of hands came about to show that one was not of tainted bloodline. Five fingers proved that one did not possess the traits of blood-lust and violence which always accompanied the descendants of six-fingered giants, or “men of renowned”

Polydactyly and Giants in Native American Culture

Recent discoveries at Chaco Canyon

July 25, 2016, National Geographic put out an article titled “Extra Fingers and Toes Were Revered in Ancient Culture“. The article is an introductory explanation of polydactyly among the ancient Pueblo cultures in the American Southwest citing research conducted by Patricia Crown. in her research Ms. Crown finds that 3.1% of the ancient population of Chaco Canyon had a sixth toe on the right foot. This was determined from 96 exhumed skeletons of which 3 showed this trait. That is a significant number. High in fact. High enough to raise the eyebrows of anthropologists. 

While the article makes a great effort to point out that these people were revered I can’t help but wonder if it wasn’t simply reverence, but reverence from fear. (From the article)

“And while burial treatments differed among the six-toed individuals, all of them were interred respectfully either in or adjacent to burial and ritual rooms. One of the skeletons had an ornate anklet around its six-toed foot but carried no such offering on its five-toed foot.”

“We found that people with six toes, especially, were common and seemed to be associated with important ritual structures and high-status objects like turquoise,” 

“The findings, published today in American Antiquity, indicate that the society did not view six-toed individuals as supernatural, but this form of polydactyly did grant them exalted status in life and in death.”

Another interesting quote from the article reads:

“Initially intrigued by the divine powers attributed to polydactyls among the Maya, researchers led by anthropologist Patricia Crown of the University of New Mexico conducted a comprehensive review of evidence for the condition at the canyon’s sacred Pueblo Bonito site.”

The question is. What “divine powers” were attributed to polydactyls? And why exactly were they attributed to them? I have a sneaky suspicion they may have been the same divine powers of strength, bravery, and capacity for exceptional violence which has been attributed to giants documented throughout all of history. 


This is the story Ho’ok or Haw-awk, is the story of a girl who was born to the Gila River Pima before the arrival of the Europeans. It is an extraordinary story of a child born very tall, with claw-like hands and the feet of a wild animal. According to the story, an evil spirit is born into Ho’ok as a giant, much the same way the evil Nephilim were born into their bodies. Upon her death the spirit escapes and take refuge in a green hawk only to continue killing people. Then the spirit found it’s way into a pot of greens wherein the pot became possessed and tormented the people of the village. After a medicine man vanquishes the pot the spirit harbors its self in the cooked greens which are in turn eaten by an old man and his orphaned grandson who are turned into bears. The bears go on living for years killing more people and are eventually killed by being tricked and shot with arrows. It is only then that the evil power of Ho’ok finally ends. Note, it doesn’t say that the spirit dies.

This story was printed in the 1911 book aw-aw-tam Indian nights written by J. William Lloyd. The book is a collection of rare Pima folk stories told by Comalk-Hawk-Kih, or Thin Buckskin who at the time was the last of the see-nee-yah-kum; or professional traditionalists. Translated by Thin Buckskin’s grand nephew Edward Hubert Wood over a period of four days and great care was taken to be as accurate as possible.

Queho, pronounced (Kay-ho) although some say (Kwee-ho) and in Spanish the name means (to complain). The life of Queho is very well documented through legal records by the State of Nevada, as he was accused of multiple murders, branded an outlaw, and hunted for 30 years. That being said, the life of Queho is still shrouded in mystery and intrigue. More than interesting to note is that the life of Queho has many similarities to that of other stories of giants across the world. What makes this story amazing is that it is quite recent. You can read my full article on Queho here.

Native American creation stories and Giants

Nearly every Native American creation story without exception contains elements of both Giants and a great flood. The Hopi tell of a time in the last world were cannibalistic giants roamed the earth both feeding upon and interbreeding with mankind. The Hopi, tell of Maasaw, the intermediate between the creator and man, who came down from the heavens and instructed the chief, who is still pure in his bloodline, to take his family underground with the people while the creator kills all the giants in a great flood. The Navajo, tell of the twin miracle-performing sons of white shell woman Ylkaistasjn, chief goddess. Their father was the sun, and his name and Navajo means “slayer of alien gods.” These twin brothers would go on to kill many bird, animal, rock, and human monsters including giants, who were devouring all the inhabitants of the Earth. The Pawnee tell that the creator made the first people to big and that they roamed the plains and devoured everything in sight, even the later creation of man. So he caused a flood to wipe them out, but before doing so he instructed the pure among them to build a ball out of wood and then fill it with food and water, climb inside and seal it with sap. They were told to float on top of the flood until the waters subsided and then repopulate the earth. The Apache, speak of a race of giants which they called Guindipeds. They said they lived in the caves in the Superstition Mountains and beyond. The Pima, tell the creation story wherein the people became horribly corrupted creator caused a great flood to wipe them out. The offspring of the chief made it to the top of the Superstition Mountains where they found refuge from the floodwaters. The Gila also tell of a similar story of creation. The Yavapai too speak of a great flood wherein they emerged from either what’s now Montezuma’s well located in the Very Valley or the huge crack on the west side of Red Butte located just south of Fountain Hills. They say that they came up from the water but not all of the souls made it to human form, and many of them remained the creatures of the water. This is why Yavapai do not eat fish to this day. This list could go on forever but I shall stop here.

Note that in all of these creation stories Giants were always the enemy of mankind, 

“How” OR “Howgh” 

No doubt we are familiar with the cliché Native American greeting of raising one hand while saying “How” or more accurately “Howgh”. Of course, in 2018 no one assumes that every Native American tribe used this same greeting but the point is the majority of the Plains Indians did while showing their right hand. The word literally means “I have spoken. “Howgh gained popularity through Early American literature and by 1917 it was so stereotypically accepted that it found its way into US World War I propaganda depicting Native American soldiers. By 1953 it was so completely accepted that in Walt Disney’s Peter Pan movie, the song “What Made the Red Man Red?” uses “How” and “Ugh” with the strong assumption that the contemporary audience would understand them as standard Native American speech. More importantly, the word was always used in conjunction with the raising of the hand and the showing of the fingers. (Don’t forget Walt Disney was a practitioner of the occult and ceremonial magick. He didn’t put anything into his cartoons by accident. He traveled the west looking for “places of power.” I discuss him in greater detail in my article on Sedona Vortice.

So why is it Native Americans showed their hands in such a manner when greeting strangers? The answer is quite simply, to show that they are not of tainted bloodline and did not possess the traits of blood-lust and violence.

A cursory search of giants among the ancient Native Americans tribes will reveal that while giants existed throughout the entire continent they had a huge presence on the plains and the southwest. This isn’t to say that they couldn’t be found all over North America, and most certainly they were. It’s just that the majority of evidence has been found in the American Southwest, with stories and legends pointing to the Great Plains. I suppose this would be due to the hot dry climate, lack of earthquakes and tornados, as well as, mountains and caves. 

While here, it’s worth noting that the waving of hands as strangers from a distance is also ubiquitous across humanity. So much so that there’s been scientific research conducted on it. Something about humans compels us to show our hands to strangers upon meeting them. Come to think of it, we wave both hello and goodbye. Is it simply evolutionary behaviorism? Do we instinctually wave at any other bipedal creatures on earth? It would seem to me that we always signifying at the beginning and end moments of contact that we are in fact and indeed human? Come to think of it, do we not shake hands at the end of a meeting as well?

Traits of Nephilim/Giants

It is a fact that every culture on earth, without exception, have stories of Giants with six fingers. And not just stories, but where writing had been invented, copious records archived within religious and historical texts. These two often being one and the same. For those without a written language, symbols and pictures were used to convey this history. Of course, mainstream academia has “educated” the population and most today believe that all these stories are religious or mythical in nature and readily dismiss them as fiction. 

Stephen Quayle, most definitely the foremost expert on Giants alive today, states that Giants possessed senses beyond our five. He believes he has found evidence that they could actually smell and identify individual DNA strains. He further states that they could sense energy fields and even possessed telepathic abilities to varying degrees. This would certainly account for their capacity to accumulate power throughout history when found in the civilized world.

Among all cultures, giants were known to be cannibals, violent, and more animalistic than human. They were extremely powerful and destructive creatures who prayed upon humanity, hence the reason for the flood. Remember Jack and the beanstalk? Fe Fi Fo Fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman, Goliath. Ho’ok, Og, Cyclops, and the list could go on for pages. Of all the traits of these creatures possessed, that of cannibalism and violence was foremost. 

Speed and agility. No doubt they could travel great distances at great speeds given legs three times the size of that of the common man. The ability to traverse great distances of land would suddenly be theirs, facilitating trade information and connecting a world without electronics. The Pawnee tribe tell of the time when Giants ran the Great Plains chasing down Buffalo on foot and harvesting them by hand. This story was penned by Buffalo Bill Cody himself and can be found in his biography.

And then there are the megaliths which are found all across the world. Huge cut stones moved into various arrangements and architecture, yet unmovable by man with his machines today. 

The 9 and 11-sense models (Gathering information beyond our 5 senses)

Have you ever not liked someone upon first meeting them? Not because they did or said anything in particular or at all for that matter, but because you simply had a feeling. Have you ever had a dog who loves everybody but is wary or aggressive towards certain people? What all is actually being transferred when one person shakes hands with another? Electromagnetically? Pheromones? Other subtle energetic fields which we’ve lost the ability to sense over time? 

Animals have senses humans do not, including magnetic sensing abilities. Dogs can sense tumors, seizures, and earthquakes. Humans too, from time to time are known to be able to “sense” things. Is this due to mutations in DNA or perhaps genetic linage? 

It is obvious we have senses beyond the five common senses of sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch. The original 5-sense model is antiquated and based on observable data gathering physicality. Within recent years scientists have been formulating new models to organize and explain our other senses. The 9-sense model and  11-sense model are two such an attempts. (From the article titled The 5 Senses, or Maybe 7, Probably 9, Perhaps 11 )

The 9-sense Model

1) Light (electromagnetic radiation)
2) Sound waves (vibrations) 
3) Odors & flavors (chemical molecules)
4) Odors & flavors (airborne molecules) 
5) Direct contact (touch or pressure)  
6) Heat & cold (temperature)
7) Gravity & acceleration 
8) Magnetic fields
9) Electrical fields and static charge 

The Eleven Primary Animal Senses”, which consists of the above nine human senses, along with the magnetic sense of direction and the perception of electrical fields in salt water. I can also think of another, how about pheromone detection? 

But we are also aware of other internal phenomena, such as being hungry or thirsty or feeling too full from having eaten too much, or having a full bladder and needing to go to the bathroom. All of these require some sort of sensor within the body to earlier detect the issue. The sensors, in turn, send messages to the brain via the nervous system. Therefore we could legitimately refer to a sense of hunger, a sense of thirst, or a sense of being full. In fact, scientists have cataloged a long list of such internal senses. If we were to include all of these senses in our list, then we could easily reach 20 or more distinct human senses.

As noted eariler in this article, Stephen Quayle goes into great depth in his research, which includes testimony from military scientists and whistle-blowers that the Giants being created from DNA found all over the planet actually possess the ability to identify, through extrasensory means, individual people based on their DNA coding. In fact, this idea is used quite extensively in SciFi movies and TV shows when applied to alien races. 

The point is, humans are quite capable of sensing much more beyond our currently held 5 senses. Animals are often equipped with more than us, and if Giants were not fully human it would stand to reason that they may include other senses as well. Or better yet, What sensors might we have laying dormant which we may not be aware of? Might some of our vestigial organs have served this purpose? Just throwing that idea out there. 


Palmistry, or the science of reading palms, is also found all over the world, and since the beginning of time. Regarded as a pseudoscience today it is my suspicion that this science may have grown out of our ancient ancestor’s awareness of the genetic traits of giants within their bloodlines and their attempt to identify those with Nephilim blood. 

To illustrate how far back palmistry dates, several thousand years ago, the Hindu sage Valmiki is thought[ to have written a book comprising 567 stanzas, the title of which translates in English as The Teachings of Valmiki Maharshi on Male Palmistry. Aristotle (384–322 B.C.E.) too discovered a treatise on the subject of palmistry on an altar of Hermes, which he then presented to Alexander the Great (356–323 B.C.E.), who took great interest in examining the character of his officers by analyzing the lines on their hands.

Note that this is just two of dozens of examples dating back to antiquity. If historical and religious records are correct, and I think they are, the threat of Nephilim blood within certain family lines would have been a foremost concern during this time as this was most certainly recent history and the traits were concentrated and no doubt manifested more readily.

Psychopathy Giants, Kings, politicians, & CEO’s

It is no secret that kings made use of these bloodlines as well. The most famous being the tale of David and Goliath. Goliath along with his four brothers served the Philistines. Saint Christopher ( 7.5 foot, originally served the king of the Canaan, and later became a servant of God.) Og himself was a King. Beowulf too. It would seem these Nephilim tainted men had the advantage of force and might over that of common man.

It is obvious that “giants” or people of exceptional height once roamed this world. Some accounts say they were 8-12 feet tall while others record them as being much taller. It is clear from Biblical text and records kept from around the same time that the “giants” of this era were around 8-12 feet in height. Many of them achieved great feats and amassed much power and eventually became kings. 

It is a common theory among alternative history theorists that as the genetics of these royal/king bloodlines broke down generation after generation due to breeding with humans, the genetic traits which accompanied them faded. The physical traits first. Heights, extra fingers, perhaps thicker skin, heightened animistic senses of smell and sight. However, what remains is the appetite for violence and ritual. The base and most powerful instincts of these creatures. Instincts and behaviors which are found aplenty in corporate and political leaders today. Charles the VIII was said to have 6 toes on each foot, and Henry the VIII’s second wife Anne Boleyn had an extra finger on one hand. Monarchy is known for inbreeding in order to maintain power and of course, monarchy throughout history is known for insanity.

The clinical term “corporate psychopathy” is around for a reason. With psychopaths making up roughly 1% of the world population, 21% of all CEOs are psychopaths. Also within the top 10 careers are lawyers, media and TV personalities, police officers, and clergy. All positions of power, authority, and influence.

Scripted Science 

Do I have a chip on my shoulder when it comes to embedded and insulated government-funded institutions headed by the academic elite and overseen by ancient secret societies which harvest the talent of our youth and enfold them into their control system to further their own agenda? You bet I do! So here we go.

Modern scientists attribute this phenomenon to simply a genetic mutation which has been found throughout all of human history, a history of their scripting mind you, based upon highly debate timelines. Ironically these same scientists make a regular habit of simultaneously presenting evidence which suggests other narratives without ever acknowledging them. Narrative no respectable anthropologist dare explore for fear of being marked a pariah within the bureaucracy of academia. 

Keep in mind that the conclusions drawn from these discoveries are being shown through a prism of constructed narrative built by previous colleagues who have come before. And while you may say Duhhhh. I and thousands of other researchers come from a position wherein we question the very institutions of scientific academia, to begin with. Their motives, funding, agenda, alliances, etc. Does anyone think that all scientific discoveries get equal institutional consideration, media attention, and funding? Hell no. If the findings don’t concur or fit into currently accepted history as it has been laid out for us then it is simply pushed aside and  What I’m saying is, the institution of academia has existed for centuries and operates in a well-worn groove of punishment and reward. Much the same way as mainstream media.

Crown’s findings state that her evidence represents a higher rate of polydactyly than what’s currently seen in the Native American population. And I would agree. While I’m no geneticist it occurs to me that simple logic would tell us that this genetic trait is becoming rarer and rarer worldwide as entropy unfolds. Like the blue eyes and blonde hair of the Mandan Tribe in North Dakota, as discovered and documented by Meriwether Lewis it will eventually work its way out of the population. Ergo, whatever is responsible for this trait is no longer dominant and is on the downslope. Not surprisingly this corroborates nearly every religious text across our planet. Specifically Genesis 6:4.

Genesis 6:4 there were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bear children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Case in Point here. Because science has branded itself the empirical arbitrator of reality and fact it can quite literally re-script its own narrative at will and does so regularly in conjunction with global agendas such as global warming and genetics.  This article here is a shining example as it relates to hand prints. This was released Oct of 2014 and simply re-dates an earlier find. Why is this important? Well, because it serves to heap more “evidence” onto a scripted narrative. The shame is, people have been trained to blindly believe ANYTHING which comes out of the mouth of science. And they do. 

Records of giants in the Bible

Probably the best-known verse in the Bible which pertains to giants is Genesis 6. This verse frustrates traditional Biblical scholars because it doesn’t seem to fit the narrative storyline which has been taught for the past few hundred years by the clergy. Or the ajoining text for that matter. The Catholic church holds and teaches that this passage pertains to the line of Seth, and not “giants” or “the son’s of God” like it actually reads. 

Gen 6 1.And it came to pass when men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born unto them. 2. That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3. And the Lord said, my spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years. 4. There were Nephilim in the earth in those days, AND ALSO AFTER THAT. When the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old men of renown.

Offspring of the Nephilim in biblical text

  • Anakites (Numbers 13: 28-33) -long-necked-
  • Emites (Deuteronomy 2:10) – Dreaded ones-
  • Amorites (Amos 2:9) – No description given
  • Rephaites (Joshua 12-4) -Terrible Ones-

Slain by David, Goliath was a Philistine, measuring “6 cubits and a span” tall. That’s 2.8 meters or 9.1 feet. His armor weighed 78 pounds and his spear measured 26 feet long. The head of the spear alone weighed 17 pounds. What is interesting to note, because it rarely makes it into Sunday school lessons, is that Goliath had four brothers. They are recorded in 2Samuel 21: 16-22. What is also quite interesting is that when David chose his ammunition for his sling and put them in his bag before the battle, he chose 5 smooth stones. Is this just a coincidence? The four brothers were Ish’be’nob, Saph, Git’tite; and the fourth is unnamed but 2Samuel 21:20 say this about him after naming the first three.

2Samuel 21:20 And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant. 21. And when he defied Israel. Jonathan the son of Shim’-e-ah the brother of David slew him. 22. These four were born to the giant in Gath, and fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants.”

1Chro20:6 And yet again there was a war at Gath, where was a man of great stature, whose fingers and toes were four and twenty, six on each hand, and six n each foot: and he also was the son of the giant.

Numbers 13:32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying. The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of great stature. 33. And there we saw the giants, the sons of A’nak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.


So it is obvious at this point that giants and man have been at odds with one another for thousands of years. It is also obvious that the history of mankind is infinitely more rich and complex than we’ve been told. I’ve no doubt that in the near future, as the institutions of authority loosen their hold on the truth of human history out of necessity to move forward, we will inevitably learn more and more about our true past.

i just watched a few videos of you and i must say that you are amazing. Wife and i really enjoyed the superstition mountain interview that you did. We are from sierra vista and alot of the information that was mentioned we had no idea. Awesome

Wow… you connect the dots and put together pieces that I’ve suspected up till now, but you bring so much more than I’ve ever found in my personal research. I’m so grateful to have found your site and youtube! Lol, found you through the interview you did on the Paranormal Files. Love how I’d been asking the universal energies to direct me to someone who was knowledgeable about these kind of topics, and I randomly find you through another youtube that I randomly found because I like stories about the paranormal. 🙂 Yep… this world can be cool.
