1. We are aware of two official documents concerning the artifacts of El Toro “Aztlán”:
– letter of the regional branch of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (NIAH) of the state of Jalisco, Mexico, from July 7, 2014 (response to the request of the organization “Nahui Ollin” in the person of its representative Dr. Pablo Enrique Garcia Sanchez).
– letter of the Central branch of the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico on July 21, 2014 (response of the Central branch of NIAH at the request of UFO researcher and critic Leopoldo Zambrano Enriquez).
Publications in the magazine of 2008, the materials of the Internet blog of 2013 and videos on YouTube were used in these documents as the basis for the conclusion.
It is noted in the letters that: 1) there are no archaeological complexes in Ojuelos, Jalisco, 2) NIAH doesn’t work with “cases of aliens,” and 3) there are no archaeological data indicating the linkage between the aliens and the archaeological area of “El Toro”, Ojuelos, Jalisco.
Photocopies of the NIAH answers are presented below.
2. In December of 2014 the Mexican newspaper “Pagina24” under the heading ”Exposing of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (NIAH) by the presenter Jaime Maussan” published the article about the interview with the archaeologist Ana María Marín Pelz. (http://pagina24.com.mx/local/2014/12/21/desenmascara-el-inah-al-presentador-jaime-maussan/).
The article says that the residents of Ojuelos city several times sent its delegation to the NIAH with the requests to identify “stones with the pre-Hispanic carving”, that has got a lot of popularity after their presentation by the presenter Jaime Maussan, who attributed them as genuine alien stones because “aliens” and astronauts were engraved on them.
In this regard, the archaeologist of the NIAH Ana Maria Pelz Marin said in the interview for the newspaper “Pagina24” that it was even visible to the naked eye that they were not authentic and copied pictures of different cultures of the Aztecs, Olmec and Maya, including the stones, which were presented as the “alien stones”. These stones do not contain pre-Hispanic context, it is impossible to check their origin, the local people sell them tricking unsuspecting buyers and we do not support these artifacts.
She also refined that in the municipality of Ojuelos the pre-Hispanic artifacts, such as arrowheads, cave paintings or pottery shards were found, but not the stones with the images of aliens. The staff of the Institute got in touch with the delegation of the representatives of the states of Jalisco and San Luis Potosi and they agreed with the arguments of the experts.
The archaeologist also emphasized that although these artifacts are being sold by the local people as genuine pre-Hispanic items, there is no crime in that, so as for NIAH they are not the historical objects, but the items of local handicrafts. If they were genuine, then selling them as the national asset could be the federal crime. Therefore, people need to understand that these items are not the original compositions.
Starting of 2012, the residents of Ojuelos, Jalisco claim that they find at a depth of several meters stone figurines, depicting space ships, astronauts, and people with the features of aliens.
The first settlers in this area were the Indians “tecuexes,” which appeared there in the 12th century. Between the 13th and 15th centuries the territory settled by the Indians Chichimecas and Huachichiles. In the 15th century the city called “San José de Ojuelos” was founded here for protection and safe transportation of the minerals that were mined in the mines of Zacatecas. Currently, this city is the home to more than 25 thousand people, mostly engaged in agriculture.
Summary. It is obvious that given the subject of the artifacts of El Toro, it was impossible to expect the different opinion from the official government organization, the National Institute of Anthropology and History. However, it should be noted that their “conclusion” is not supported by any specific laboratory tests and was based only on evaluation of the submitted materials. Also the reports of the locals are ignored that the individual artifacts have been found even 50-60 years ago, and were stored in the families, as well as the fact that, in the local museum of NIAH in Ojuelos city there are some artifacts with unusual images.
