Northern Arizona is renowned for its rugged landscape, sprawling canyons, and dense forests. The Hopi Native Americans have called this picturesque region home for millennia. Elder tribe members refer to their distant ancestors as ‘Snake Brothers’, a highly intelligent reptilian race. According to oral mythology, these bipedal humanoids constructed massive subterranean bases throughout the Southwestern United States, Mexico, and Central America. One such underground city is supposedly located amid a modern-day Californian metropolis. Several decades ago, a researcher claimed he discovered this fabled kingdom. Stranger yet, his astonishing revelation headlined the Los Angeles Times newspaper.
An Unexpected Discovery
In the 1930s, mining engineer G. Warren Shufelt invented a device that utilized radio frequencies to detect buried materials. Through electrical signal scans, he could unveil abnormalities deep within the Earth. By the summer of 1933, Schufelt began scouring local areas in search of oil deposits and rare minerals. While inspecting downtown L.A., his apparatus revealed an unusual structure beneath the Public Library. Perplexed, he meticulously examined the surrounding land. What he uncovered was an expansive labyrinth of tunnels weaving miles below the surface world. The excavator spent months investigating this sprawling village and created a map detailing its layout. Bizarrely, the territory was constructed in the shape of a lizard.
Reptilian Legends Revealed
A series of events eventually led the investigator to an indigenous medicine lodge. During his visit, he was introduced to Chief Little Green Leaf and the two discussed Hopi legends. After learning about the ancient race of subterrestrial Lizard People, Schufelt shared his peculiar cartographic findings. Both men were convinced his surveying instrument had uncovered the fabled saurian settlement. The pair decided to obtain permits so excavation could be executed. Upon meeting district representatives, a deal was struck: they would cover all expenses, return the property to its original condition, and give 50% of any unearthed treasures to municipal administrators. With all parties in agreement, the mining project went underway.
Exploring the Lizard People Catacombs
An eager Schufelt continued mapping the vast netherworld to determine optimal boring locations. A complex maze of ventilated passageways and elaborate rooms existed thousands of meters underneath the bustling urban streets. One particular section piqued the prospector’s interest. His transmission tool detected precious metals so he took numerous X-ray photographs. Once developed, the images revealed 37 massive golden tablets. Each measured four feet in length and fourteen inches in width. Chief Little Green Leaf believed these mysterious relics contained detailed records about humankind’s true origins. Shufelt chose this promising site as his starting point for the historic and highly anticipated expedition.
As time progressed the initial hole reached a depth of 250 feet. Despite major flooding challenges, the determined crew continued drilling. Before long word of the Lizard People’s covert colony reached media outlets. The Los Angeles Times soon picked up the unusual story. Published directly on its front page was the caption: Lizard People’s Catacomb City Hunted: Engineer Sinks Shaft Under Fort Moore Hill to Find Maze of Tunnels and Priceless Treasures of Legendary Inhabitants. Upon being thrust into the public eye, Schufelt’s venture took an unexpected turn. On March 5th, 1934 the project was abruptly halted. County officials canceled the contract and all shafts were filled in. Nearly one century later, precisely what resides beneath L.A. remains a mystery. Only time will tell if society will ever learn the truth about these elusive underground sectors.
