6.7 – TREASURES OF THE GODS (2.14.14)

MONTEZUMA’S TREASURE [8d]

Kanab, Utah. Located on the western Colorado Plateau, this town of less than 4,000, is the site of a treasure hunt that’s been going on for over a century. And what many believe is hidden here among the red rocks and canyons is one of the greatest lost treasures in the world.

“Something’s buried here that’s very valuable, that cost people their lives. People have died over this. This ain’t no fun and games. This is for real.”

Paul Dillman (Treasure Hunter)

“If you’ve ever seen Indiana Jones or National Treasure, that’s fictional, but the treasure that we’re looking after is real, and that’s what all of those movies were based off of, is the truth and history of the ancients. Twenty years of investigation and research has us convinced that Montezuma’s treasure is here in Utah.”

Daniel Dillman (Treasure Hunter)

Montezuma’s treasure? In the American Southwest? Why would the lost treasure of a culture that existed in Mexico, hundreds of years ago, lie hidden in Utah? According to legend, the ancestral birthplace of the Aztec people is, in fact, somewhere in this area of the United States.

“The Aztec mythology says that they came from a land called Aztlán. And this is a city that was apparently in what’s now the American Southwest. Very, very advanced civilization.”

In the Aztec stories, their homeland of Aztlán was created through an extraordinary event an event that, according to Ancient Astronaut Theorists, depicts an encounter with extraterrestrial beings.

“The Aztec chronicler Gerónimo de Mendieta recorded a very interesting creation myth in which a goddess threw a giant flint knife from the heavens into the Seven Caves of Chicomoztoc, causing the birth of 1,600 gods. Now, imagine for a moment, that you know nothing about high-tech. You’ll use words with which to best describe what you see. And all of a sudden, you have these giant flint knives descending from the sky.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“So what are we really looking at here? Could it have been that these 1,600 settlers, were, in fact, extraterrestrials who had crash-landed on Earth and then brought their civilization to the indigenous people of that time?”

    – David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),

(The Synchronicity Key)

According to the Aztec codices, their ancestors were instructed by the gods to migrate south to Mexico around 1064 AD. Over the course of the next 500 years, they grew to be the greatest empire in North America.  But on June 29, 1520, King Montezuma II was killed during the Spanish conquest of Mexico, and the Aztec empire came to an end. What happened in the aftermath is debated by historians but according to some accounts, the Aztecs gathered as much of their valuables as they could carry and fled to the north.

“This treasure was spectacular. It was epic. It was hundreds of pounds of gold and silver and priceless objects a golden disc the size of a cartwheel, that was shaped like the sun. They needed to get this treasure out to a safe place. And this is the story behind the Aztec exodus, north into what we now know as the American Southwest.”

The Aztecs are said to have carried tens of thousands of pounds of gold, silver, and priceless relics north in the direction of their ancestral homeland. But why? Why would the Aztecs travel nearly 2,000 miles, putting both their lives and their treasure at risk, to reach a homeland that they had left over 500 years earlier? According to their own stories, the Aztecs’ vast treasure was a gift for their most important god.

“This wealth of the Aztecs was being held in safekeeping for their god, Quetzalcoatl. So, it was a sacred treasure. Quetzalcoatl is said to have brought understandings of astronomy and astrology. He is really the father of the Aztec Empire. But we have to ask ourselves, is it possible that Quetzalcoatl was an historical figure and not just a mythological being?”

– Kathleen McGowan Coppens (Author/Researcher),
(Author, The Expected One), (The Source of Miracles),
(The Book of Love)

“Quetzalcoatl is represented as a feathered serpent, but also he’s represented, he’s a big being, with a helmet, and he’s sitting on a half-open sort of egg. Quetzalcoatl was definitely an extraterrestrial.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

If Quetzalcoatl really was an alien being, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest, could this be further proof of Zecharia Sitchin’s theory that gold is an important commodity to extraterrestrial space travelers? And might the Aztecs have brought their treasure back to their ancestral homeland in the hopes that Quetzalcoatl would exact vengeance on their enemies?

“The purpose of this treasure was to preserve it as tribute for Quetzalcoatl when he returned and helped them, hopefully, eventually vanquish their enemies. What’s really interesting is that as you get into the American Southwest, what you find is that there are Aztec writings, Aztec hieroglyphs and petroglyphs on rocks even as far north as Utah. Perhaps, somewhere, they actually do have these treasures still stored away, still waiting for the day when Quetzalcoatl returns.”

In the 1950s, four stone tablets known as the Peralta Stones were discovered near the Superstition Mountains in Arizona.

Treasure hunters Paul and Dan Dillman are convinced that the symbols carved on these stones, along with a fifth tablet they discovered in 1982, will one day lead them to the legendary gold of Montezuma, hidden here in the mountains and canyons of Utah.

“Check this out. Look at the markings.” – Paul Dillman (Treasure Hunter)

“This is amazing, man.” – Daniel Dillman (Treasure Hunter)

“You got an Indian headdress, – you got the sun symbol.”

Paul Dillman (Treasure Hunter)

“Sun symbol, just like the tablet.” – Daniel Dillman (Treasure Hunter)

“Right here, cave. Wavy lines. And the arch, the “T.” Everything’s on here.”

Paul Dillman (Treasure Hunter)

“It matches the tablet perfect.” – Daniel Dillman (Treasure Hunter)

But if the Dillmans ever do uncover the entrance to the Aztec homeland of Aztlán, and the hiding place of Montezuma’s gold, might they find more than they bargained for?

“If Aztlán was founded by an extraterrestrial god, as treasure hunters get closer and closer to perhaps finding the location of Aztlán, do they really want to break that seal? Because no one really knows what’s behind it, and what the consequences of such a find might actually be to the human race.”

Is Kanab, Utah, really the hiding place of the lost Aztec treasure? And if so, when it is found, might it reveal evidence of alien contact in the distant past? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes, and claim that more evidence of a connection between the world’s greatest lost treasures and extraterrestrial intervention can be found in Greece.
