Concerns raised in NZ over hunt for 'giants'

A group of anonymous individuals have been digging tunnels in search of evidence of 'giants' in New Zealand.
The mysterious group, whose members have yet to be identified, have been digging out a network of tube-like caves for the better part of four years. Often working under cover of darkness, their goal is to unearth evidence of pre-Polynesian giants or "tall ones" who they believe once lived in the region.

Concerns have been raised, not only due to the potential for genuine archaeological evidence to be damaged, but also because the landowner has not given them permission to be there.

In one recent video published by the group, an anonymous member presented a large leg bone.

"This here, my friends, is a human bone of a pre-Polynesian inhabitant," he said. "You can tell by the triangular shape. It's most likely a tibia, which would make this... individual 8ft 4 inches tall..."
"Regardless of its length, this is an older bone than any human being in New Zealand."

Archaeologists later dismissed the bone as that of a moa (a large extinct bird).

"Providing proof of 8' humans to the world will be bigger than finding Tutankhamen," the leader of the group, who is known only as 'IJ', told Radio New Zealand.

"[It will be] the most talked about worldwide story of the millennium."

As things stand however, no conclusive, verifiable evidence of these "tall ones" has materialized.

I really have no idea, in the links I provided above the Reiki was specifically used, but like I have said I am not an expert on any of that.  Peace

A misused tiki or reiki would probably be very offensive to Maori elders.

@Swede  You laugh because you remember Indian Head and Herschel Lee Schenck!!  New Jersey passed a law making it criminal to possess human remains and we nailed his son.

This apparently comes from Source J. (Apparently, the deity wasn't best pleased by the sons of God and the daughters of men getting together in this fashion, and shortened human lifespans as a result ... )

And after numerous translation and romanticizing of the bible in multiple centuries ... it could be some pedophiles... you know,  mighty men which were of old, men of renown that came into daughters of others...and Epstein didn't kill himself

1) As yet, am not aware of any. However, as noted in the article, there are reasons to be concerned that the area in question may contain culturally sensitive data. Thus, qualified investigation of the area is in order. Hardly an uncommon situation. Though, as previously noted, one does cringe at the loss of critical information. 2) Do not confuse an exposed sedimentary formation with a site locus. That said, exposed sedimentary formations can and do yield a range of informative specimens (ammonites, bryozoans, bivalves, etc.). On occasion this does lead to the identification of a new species.... [More]

For their sake they better hope they're digging on these guys' property and not these guys'
