A German man claims to be an Indian chief in the Amazon rainforest. His tales of El Dorado even impressed Steven Spielberg and Jacques Cousteau. His tales would be harmless if there were three unsolved deaths connected to his fantasy world.

In the late 1960s, a man turned up in the Brazilian state of Acre, deep in the Amazon region. He was wearing a loincloth and a feather, carried a bow and claimed he was Tatunca Nara, chief of the Ugha Mongulala. No one had ever heard of an Indian tribe with that name. In addition, the man bore no resemblance whatsoever to an Indian. He was white and spoke with a strong French accent.

He said he had inherited the accent from his mother, explaining that she was a German nun who had been taken by the Indians. His people, he said, lived in an underground city called Akakor, and that German was one of the languages spoken there -- a byproduct of the offspring of 2,000 Nazi soldiers who had once traveled up the Amazon in U-boats.

An interesting tale that, for some reason. made me wonder whatever happened to Carlos Castañeda?

(Well, OK, looked it up and he died in1998. But I wonder if anyone still reads or believes him.)

LOL...he's described as a German, speaking German, BUT with a French accent. I have a bridge I'd like to sell to Mr Steven Spielberg.

So this counts as an Ancient Mystery or an Alternative History, does it?
