The Ool-el-en Canaanite Giants of California's Yosemite Valley

The Ool-el-en Canaanite Giants of California's Yosemite Valley

The word El-en is derived from the Proto-Semitic archaic  meaning "god". Specific deities known as El  include the supreme god of the Canaanite religion, the supreme god of the Mesopotamian Semites in the pre-Sargonic period
Ool is a Semitic word meaning "to turn" it is the root of the Englisn word, "roll."  It was used in ancient times to signify how god turn the fabric of the sky that appeared to turn around the north star.

The Martindale Mummies were discovered 1n 1885 . In California's great Yosemite Valley . A group of miners led by G.F. Martindale found the remains of a woman nearly seven feet tall still holding a mummified child in a cave behind a wall of rock . These mummies are currently the property of Ripley's Museum .


The people Indigenous to the Yosemite region when whites arrived were the Ahwahneechee tribe. Ahwahneechee folklore relates a story of giants called Oo-el-en who came into the Yosemite Valley many years before the white man. The Oo-el-en, like the sitecah of nearby Nevada, were cannibalistic giants who ate the meat of the Indians. Oo-el-en would catch the adults and cut them into bite-size pieces, hanging their meat in the sun to dry into jerky. The legend says that the Ahwahneechees finally killed the giants and burned their bodies [The last of the Ahwahneechee died in the 1940s] reconstruction by Kay Hearle
