The Paiutes, a Native-American tribe that inhabits sections of Nevada, have a narrative concerning their ancestors and race of red-haired, white giants that they told to early white settlers of the area. These colossal creatures are described as “Si-Te-Cah.” Sarah Winnemucca Hopkins, the daughter of a Paiute Indian chief, documented the story in her book “Life Among the Piutes: Their Wrongs and Claims,” which was published in 1882.
