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.
