Quetsan and Nazca

Not many people do know that in addition to mysterious lines drawn in the arid area of Nazca in Peru some 2000 years ago we can also find similar lines drawn many years ago in California near the town of Blythe, which has about 12 thousand people.

The lines give pictures only if we see them from above (from an airplane). Unlike in Peru where we can no longer find indigenous people directly associated with the drawings and ask them why they used them, the original inhabitants (Indians) still live in Blythe. Quetsan or Quechan, sometimes Yuma, Yuman, Kwtsan, Kwtsaan, is the name for the Indian people from North America that live in the Fort Yuma Indian Reservation in Arizona and California. The word Yuma comes from an old name used for a group of Native American ethnic groups of the Yuman-Cochimí language family.

Skeptics will certainly reject any connection between Nazca and Blythe with the argument that Blythe is too far from Peru.

Apart from the well-known Dänikin-like hypotheses that recognize aliens everywhere in any uncommon writing or picture - which quite upsets me, because this shows our arrogance that undervalues the abilities of our own ancestors - we can explain the purpose of the Nazca and Blythe lines with the following two theories:

1) The patterns correspond to constellations of the stars.
2) The lines secretly point to some underground places.

Ancient aqueducts are really present in the Nazca region and together with these very old sky-oriented drawings they are also some 2000 years old. The underground water tunnels are accessible even today. It is therefore quite probable that these lines may contain an encrypted (that is why they are visible only from above) information on how to find some underground places. We can go perhaps even further and think of these theoretical underground locations as something that has a connection to ancient secrets, or even pathways to the Aghartha.

Nazca is a small town at the mouth of the river that goes into the Pacific Ocean; the city is some 400 km south of Lima in Peru. It is near the structure of valleys and plateaus on the southern coast of Peru where these famous drawings can be seen. Nazca is also the name used for the Nazca culture that flourished in the area some time between 300 BC and 800 AD. Even today, these ancient aqueducts (underground water tunnels) are used for irrigation in the Nazca region.

Lore Cachora, the Quetsan elder, says that the drawings (in Blythe) were used for rituals and religious ceremonies. The Indians used them for the same purpose as we use our churches today. Lore Cachora further says that figures of the drawings represent deities of the Creation. One such a deity is Mustamho - on the picture on the left (in Blythe) - the grandson of Mother Earth (Pachamama) and the Sky Father, the Creator of the first Mojave people. On the picture he holds in his (stretched) arms all the people he created and protects them against the great flood.

David Whitley, one of the leading experts on ancient drawings, confirms this, too. In his opinion, the ceremonial significance of the Blythe intaglios could be of the same spiritual origin as the ancient creators of the Nazca lines showed us, but unfortunately, we cannot say this for sure. However, we have knowledge that the Blythe intaglios are definitely related to the Creation Time.
