View Full Version : AKAKOR - The lost city - and Karl Brugger assassination

12th September 2010, 20:39
This story begins on March 3, 1972 when Karl Bruggar, a German journalist, met an Indian chieftain named, Tatunca Nara. After Brugger tape recorded an interview with him, he accompanied Tatunca Nara into the Amazon jungle in an attempt to return to the secret city of Akakor. (Bruggar's story can be read in his book, The Chronicle of Akakor.) Tatunca Nara was a tall man with long dark hair and brown eyes that gleamed with suspicion, and for good reason - he was a Mestizo, a half-breed, the stigma that would one day come to haunt him.

Tatunca Nara told Brugger the tale of his tribe, the Ugha Mongulala, a chosen people by the Gods 15,000 years ago, long before academia says the first humans set foot on the North American continent. He said the language they spoke was Guechua, a written language of 1,400 symbols, each yielding a different meaning depending on their sequence. According to Tatunca Nara, the tale of Akakor was recorded in a tribal book entitled Chronicle of Akakor (not to be confused with Brugger's book THE Chronicle of Akakor), and begins at the year zero, which corresponds to the year 10,481 BC on the Gregorian calendar. He went on to say that during year zero "

...the Great Masters left the Ugha Mongulala...Before the year zero, men lived like animals, without laws, without clothing..." and that the Great Masters brought "the light" (here we have shades of Prometheus' story of bringing light, or knowledge, from the heavens to humankind.) Before year zero, the continent was "...still flat and soft, like a lamb's back...the Great (Amazon) River still flowed on either side." He continued to explain that sometime before year zero (Tatunca Nara guessed about 3,000 years before) "...glimmering golden ships appeared in the sky. Enormous blasts of fire illuminated the plain. The earth shook and thunder echoed over the hills."

The strangers in the golden ships looked like humans with fine features - white skin, bluish-black hair and thick beards. "They (the Ugha Mongulala tribe) had no tools as they did which, as if by magic, SUSPENDED THE HEAVIEST STONES, FLUNG LIGHTING AND MELTED ROCKS." These strangers civilized the tribe and built three great cities of stone called: Akanis, Akakor, and Akahim. The city of Akakor was built up the Purus River in a valley of mountains between Brazil and Peru. Likely locations are the Madre de Dios Province of Peru and the Acre Province of Brazil. "The whole city is surrounded by a high stone wall with thirteen gates...The gates are so narrow they give access only to one person at a time, and the plain in the east is guarded by stone watchtowers where chosen warriors are always on the lookout for enemies. "Akakor is laid out in rectangles. Two intersecting main streets divide the city into four parts corresponding to the four universal points of our Gods...

The Temple of the Sun and a stone gate sit on a wide square in the center. The temple faces due east, toward the rising sun, and is decorated with symbolic images of our Former Masters..." Tatunca described the city in great detailed - temples of artfully hewn stones, golden mirrors, life-size stone figures flanking the entrance to the temple, the temple's interior walls covered with relief, and that there is a large stone chest sunk into the front wall of the temple where the first written laws of their Former Masters is located. He said there were another 26 stone cities around Akakor, the largest being Humbaya and Paititi in Boliva, Emin (near the lower reaches of the Great [Amazon] River) and Cadira in the mountains of Venezuela. "...all these (cities) were completely destroyed in the first great catastrophe 13 years before the departure of the Gods."

"...The ancient Fathers also erected three (3) sacred temple complexes: Salazere, on the upper reaches of the Great River, Tiahuanaco, on the Great Lake, and Manoa, on the high plain in the south." A giant pyramid was erected in the center of these sacred temple complexes and a broad stairway led up to the platform where ceremonies were conducted. Interestingly enough, Tiahuanaco is the only place named that is known today and does indeed have a pyramid located in its center.

Tatunca Nara said he had seen only Salazere with his own eyes, which lies at a distance 8 days journey from Manaus at a tributary of the Great River. Its palaces and temples have now become completely overgrown by the Liana jungle. Only the top of the great pyramid rises above the canopy of the forest. According to Tatunca, there are also underground cities inside the mountains we call the Andes. Tunnels link "lower Akakor" with the underground cities. These tunnels are large enough to accommodate for five men walking upright and they are so extensive that it takes many days to reach one of the other cities. Tatunca said these underground cities were artificially illuminated by vertical shafts that ascended up to the surface where an enormous silver mirror dispersed light over the whole city.

These tunnels and subterranean cities were built by the Former Masters. From Tatunca Nara's memory - quoting the written Chronicle of Akakor: "And the Gods ruled from Akakor -- They ruled over men and the earth. They had ships faster than birds' flight, ships that reached their goal without sails or oars and by night as well as by day. They had magic stones to look into the distance so that they could see cities, rivers, hills, and lakes. Whatever happened on earth or in the sky was reflected in the stones. But the underground dwellings were the most wonderful of all. And the gods gave them to their Chosen Servants as their last gift. For the Former Masters are of the same blood and have the same father." In year zero, the Former Masters left, but before they left there was some kind of "War between the Gods." This war was horrible and devastating. Afterwards, the Former Masters left and a global catastrophe ensued. The Ugha Mongulala and the surrounding tribes lapsed into 6,000 years of barbarism. In the year 13 (10,468 BC) the course of the rivers was altered, and the elevation of the mountains and the strength of the sun changed. (Could this be an account of a polar shift - with massive amounts of volcanic ash in the sky?) During this time, "...Continents were flooded.

The waters of the Great Lake (near Tiahuanaco?) flowed back into the oceans. The Great (Amazon) River was interrupted by a new mountain range and now flowed swiftly toward the east (and into the Atlantic Ocean.) Enormous forest grew on its banks. A humid heat spread over the easterly regions...In the west, where giant mountains had surged up, people froze in the bitter cold of the higher altitudes..." All this would be known as the "First Great Catastrophe." After this first Great Catastrophe, the empire was set in ruins. Many of the passages that linked the borders of the empire were blocked; the mysterious light that illuminated the subterranean dwellings was extinguished; the twenty-six cities were destroyed by a tremendous flood; and "the sacred temple precincts of Salazere, Tiahunanaco, and Manoa lay in ruins, destroyed by the terrible fury of Gods." This would NOT be the last. In 3166 BC a second catastrophe occurred. This catastrophe ended the "Years of Blood" - the 6000 years of barbarism that had ravaged the land since the First Catastrophe. Just after this 2nd catastrophe, the Gods returned to Akakor, but only a few.

Their stay was short. Only two brothers stayed: Lhasa and Samon. Lhasa stayed with the Ugha Mongulala and Samon flew off to the east. Lhasa, now king of the Ugha Mongulala, fortified the kingdom and supposedly had Macchu Picchu built as an outpost of the empire. "Lhasa was the decisive innovator of the Ugha Mongulala Empire. During the 300 years of his rule, he laid down the basis for a powerful empire. Then he returned to the Gods. He convened the elders of the people and the highest priests and passed his laws on to them. He ordered the people to live according to the Gods' bequest forever and to obey his commands." After establishing this powerful empire, "he ascended the Mountain of the Moon, which looms over Machu Picchu, and in his flying disk forever withdrew from the humans.

So what happened to Samon? Tatunca Nara explained that Samon's empire was a mirror image of Akakor, located by a mighty (Amazon?) river. Lhasa often visited his brother with his flying disk to form a strong link between the two nations. In 3056 BC, he commanded the construction of a great city at the mouth of the Amazon River named, Ofir. Ofir became a powerful seaport. Here, Samon's empire docked with their valuable cargoes of gold, silver, ancient scrolls, rare woods, fine fabrics, and unknown green stones. Soon, Ofir became one of the wealthiest cities of the empire and also a target for attacks from the tribes in the East. In repeated attacks, these eastern tribes stormed the city, raided the ships at anchor and disrupted the communications with the interior.

One thousand years after Lhasa's departure, the empire disintegrated. The savage tribes of the East had succeeded in conquering Ofir and burned it to the ground. Subsequently, "the Ogha Mongulala yielded the (Atlantic) coastal provinces in the east and withdrew into the interior of the country. And the connection to Samon's empire was severed." Believed to be located on the borders of Brazil and Venezuela, Akahim was/is "a gigantic stone city shaped like an outstretched finger" that lies behind a great waterfall. It has "lain in ruins for 400 years, though it was in close alliance with Akakor for thousands of years." When the "White Barbarians" began to advance into their territory, the former residents of Akahim sought refuge underground. Apparently, Akahim and Akakor were/are linked together via a subterranean passage... Tatunca Nara goes on the say that circa 2470 BC the Inca founder of legend; Viracocha (an Ugha Mongulala who apparently had been banished from the tribe for breaking some law) founded the Inca dynasty and built Cuzco. (The Inca Empire would later become a sister nation of the Ogha Mongulala.)

(The Inca Empire would later become a sister nation of the Ogha Mongulala. Then, in 570 AD, white, bearded strangers sailing in long ships with a fierce dragon at the bow came up the Amazon River. They called themselves "Goths" (Goths?) and allied themselves with the people of Akakor. Their sailing ships consisted of iron armor, black sails, and colorful dragon heads and could carry up to 60 men. But the Germanic tribe of Ostrogoths (a warrior race that conquered Italy within 60 years) were defeated by the East Roman General Narses at the battle of Vesuvius in 522 AD) and the last survivor of this tribe had disappeared without a trace. Linguists claim to have found traces of their language in Southern France and Spain, but there is no definite proof where they migrated.

Well, according to Chronicle of Akakor, the Ostrogoths made an alliance with bold sailors of the north (North?) and ended up in South America. The subsequent union of the Goths and the Ugha Mongulala again strengthened Akakor. The Goths built new defenses and showed the Ugha Mongulala how to make iron and armor. Eventually, "The White Barbarians" invaded South America and conquered the Incas. Five years later, the Ugha Mongulala withdrew into the inner recesses of Akakor, and according to Tatunca Nara, they departed from Macchu Picchu and ordered their frontier cities abandoned and destroyed. This helps explain Macchu Picchu.

As more and more Spanish and Portuguese landed at the mouth of the Amazon and continued to conquer more and more of South America, Akakor's sister city, Akahim (note the similarity of the name with city of Arakim in Siberia, Russia?), was attacked by hostile tribes and abandoned. While the men wanted to retreat, the women insisted on fighting the White Barbarians. And so the legend of the Amazons was born. According to Tatunca Nara, in 1920, the Spanish captured fifteen Inca nobles and held them prisoner in Lima.

Tatuncas father, Sinkaia, sent 80 worriers through the Lhasa's underground tunnels in an attempt to free them. For three moons they stealthily made their way to the capital of the White Barbarians. When dawn broke, they stormed out from hiding and attacked the White Barbarians. An ensuing battle raged. 120 White Barbarians were killed. But the White Barbarians were overwhelming. None of Sinkaia's warriors returned to Akakor. All had given their lives "as faithful servants of the Gods for the Chosen People." Later, in 1932 AD, the Ugha Mongulala attacked a white settlement on the upper reaches of the Santa Maria River. They killed all the men and took four women captive. Three of the women drowned in their attempt to escape, but one survived. Her name was Reinha, a German missionary. Reinha found her way to Akakor and grew fond of the city and its people. She eventually married Prince Sinkaia and gave birth to Tatunca Nara.

NOTE: The main points in the story from the records of Slavic Aryan Vedas:
1. The Ugha Mongulala means Mongolian Ear (but does not relate to modern Mongolian races in ancient Slavic Aryan language), a chosen people by the Gods in that area 15,000 years ago.

2. The language Gods spoke was Guechua in Slavic Aryan the neuro-lingual meaning of word Guechua is RECHA (means - LANGUAGE).

3. Guechua (RECHA), a written language of 1,400 symbols, each yielding a different meaning depending on their sequence SLAVIC ARYAN RUNIC ALPHABET consists of ~1400 RUNES, each yielding a different meaning depending on their sequence.

4. Ugha Mongulala tribal book entitled Chronicle of Akakor begins at the year zero, which corresponds to the year 10,481 BC on the Gregorian calendar (after the Great Masters started new calendar system and left the Ugha Mongulala tribe). IN SLAVIC ARYAN VEDAS THIS IS A TIME OF GREAT COOLING - 10908 BC.

5. At ~ 13000 BC glimmering golden ships appeared in the sky. Enormous blasts of fire illuminated the plain. The earth shook and thunder echoed over the hills." The strangers in the golden ships looked like humans with fine features - white skin, bluish-black hair and thick beards in Slavic Aryan Vedas there is a description of such people and also a description of the year 10908 BC as TIME OF GREAT COOLING.

6 .The Ugha Mongulala tribe had no tools as Gods did, which, as if by magic, SUSPENDED THE HEAVIEST STONES, FLUNG LIGHTING AND MELTED ROCKS." These strangers civilized the tribe and built three great cities of stone called: Akanis, Akakor, and Akahim (AS RUSSIAN ARAKIM).

7. In year zero (10,481 BC), the Former Masters left, but before they left there was some kind of "WAR BETWEEN THE GODS." This war was horrible and devastating. Afterwards, the Former Masters left and a global catastrophe ensued.

8. In 3166 BC a second catastrophe occurred. This catastrophe ended the "Years of Blood" - the 6000 years of barbarism that had ravaged the land since the First Catastrophe. Just after this 2nd catastrophe, the Gods returned to Akakor, but only a few - Lhasa and Samon.

9. Lhasa supposedly had Macchu Picchu built as an outpost of his empire.

Four years after Tatunca Nara was born, Reinha (his mother) returned to Germany as an ambassador to Hitler's Third Reich. A year later she returned with three German leaders and negotiated an agreement with the Ugha Mongulala. The Ugha Mongulala and the Germans would be allies in a plan that would rule Brazil. The Nazis would invade Brazil in 1945, occupy the large coastal cities and the Ugha Mongulala would attack the white settlements in the interior. After the expected victory, the Germans would rule the eastern provinces along the coast and the Ugha Mongulala would reclaim the region of the Great (Amazon) River.

According to Tatunca Nara, the first Nazi soldiers reached Akakor by U-boat in 1941; the last soldiers arriving in 1945. For years the Germans lived with the Ugha Mongulala, arming them and training them for a war that never came. But in 1963 fighting erupted between the Germans and the Ugha Mongulala and Peru. The Germans and the Ugha Mongulala killed a number of white settlers in the Madre Dios region, but when the Peruvian government counter-attacked, the Ugha Mongulala retreated back to Akakor. In 1968, a plane crashed near Akakor.

Sinkaia ordered his son, Tatunca, to go to the crash site and kill the survivors, who were being held captive by another tribe. But instead of slaying the survivors, Tatunca was able to release them from their captives and led them to Manaus. As it turned out, the 12 survivors were officers of the Brazilian government. Tatunca Nara eventually became the new tribal leader of the Ugha Mongulala and in 1972 he went to Manaus to negotiate with the White Barbarians in an effort to secure peace with them (he felt it was useless to fight them any longer.)

It was during this trip that he met Karl Brugger, the German journalist who documented the story you are reading here. Karl Brugger checked out what elements of Tatunca Nara's story he could and found them to be true. For example, Natunca claimed he saved the lives of 12 Brazilian officers (whose plane had crashed in the jungle) by obtaining their release from the Haisha Indians who had held them captive. He then led them to Manaus, where he originally met Karl Brugger. According to Brugger, Nara's story has been documented in the archives of Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Manaus, and Rio Branco. Independent newspaper documentation of the tale is available beginning in 1968, which mentions "a white Indian chieftain who saved the lives of 12 Brazilian officers by obtaining their release from the Haisha Indians and leading them to Manaus. Witnesses said he spoke broken German, a number of Indian languages from the upper Amazon, and a little Portuguese."

It was during Tatunca and Karl Brugger's second meeting that Brugger accepted Tatunca's offer to accompany him up into the dangerous and forbidden rainforest to see the secret city of Akakor for himself first hand. On September 25, 1972, with a Winchester rifle, two revolvers, machetes, food, hammocks, jungle attire, medicine and other provisions and equipment, Tatunca Nara, Karl Brugger and a Brazilian photographer departed Manaus by river and motored up the Rios Purus to the secret city. Once they reached the Rio Yaku, their plan was to continue by canoe as far as they could and then proceed on foot through the foothills of the Andes to Akakor.

Tatunca estimated that it would take six (6) weeks. Once they reached the Rio Yaku, their plan was to continue by canoe as far as they could and then proceed on foot through the foothills of the Andes to Akakor. Tatunca estimated that it would take six (6) weeks. On October 5, ten days after they left Manaus, Brugger reported they had abandoned their boat at Cachoeira Inglesa (english waterfall) and began their final journey to Akakor by canoe. As they neared their destination, Brugger and the photographer became uneasy. Tatunca Nara began painting red stripes on his face and yellow stripes on his chest and legs, as if he was preparing to return to his people. The snow-capped mountains of the Andes mountains towered before them.
At this point they must have traveled far up the Rio Yaku and into Peru. On October 13, they lost their canoe over dangerous rapids. Most of their food and medical supplies were lost, and their camera equipment was destroyed. This was the excuse Brugger and the photographer needed to abandon the expedition and return to Manaus. They were only 10 days away from Akakor. But Tatunca Nara did not follow. With a bow, a small quiver of arrows, and a hunting knife, Natunca Nara disappeared into the forbidden jungle. Tatunca Nara was never seen or heard from again, or so the story was written.

In 1973, Erich von Däniken, at the height of his fame, claimed in his book “The Gold of the Gods” that he had found a gigantic subterranean tunnel system in Southern America. It was a major claim – and one that seriously would tarnish his profile, for his source would soon deny he had said no such thing. For many, the incident proved that von Däniken was a fabricator of lies.

http://www.philipcoppens.com/akahim.html SEE FOTOS AND MAPS HERE

The story that brought von Däniken to South America partly began in the Brazilian town of Manaus. There, on March 3, 1972, a German journalist Karl Brugger met a local Amazonian Indian, Tatunca Nara, in the backstreet tavern Gracas a Deus. The meeting would result in Brugger’s book “The Chronicle of Akakor”, published in 1976, which saw a number of foreign editions and created the legend of Akakor, a mythical town somewhere deep within the Amazonian jungle, still left to be discovered.

The title of the book was supposedly the same title as the chronicle that the Amazonian Ugha Mogulala tribe (which also makes an appearance in the Indiana Jones movie) held sacred – or at least central – to their mythology and philosophy. Indeed, Tatunca Nara claimed to be a member of this unknown Amazonian tribe, the son of a native and the daughter of a German missionary – which was supposed to account for his impeccable German.
The mere notion that an Amazonian tribe had a written chronicle itself was remarkable, as the Amazon population is largely believed not to have a written language. A second bombshell was that Tatunca claimed that the Year Zero of the Chronicle was 10,481 BC – very much outside accepted archaeological dates for human occupation of the Amazon, but perfectly fitting in the “Atlantis and Deluge” theory that many alternative researchers favoured as the anti-thesis to the science-wrought framework and which was, at the time, already made popular due to Edgar Cayce. The third bombshell was that the Gods came from a solar system known as “Schwerta”, and built an underground tunnel system in South America. Each element on its own and all together even more so made for a stunning “revelation” – or lie. But it is clear that von Däniken could do only one thing: come to South America and see what was what.

Tatunca Nara had made a series of tall claims and they definitely require the calibre of an Indiana Jones to test them to reality. The best evidence in favour of them would be to discover any of the several cities in the Amazon jungle, including any of the thirteen underground cities, which this civilisation had allegedly left behind. Their most important ancient towns were said to be known as Akakor, Akanis and Akahim, as well as Cuczo and Macchu Picchu. The first, Akanis, was built “on a narrow isthmus in the country that is called Mexico”, at a place where the two oceans meet (Panama?). The second was Akakor (apparently derived from Aka, i.e. fort, and kor, i.e., two – Fort Two) and lay far up the Purus River, in a high valley in the mountains of the border between Brazil and Peru: “The whole city is surrounded by a high stone wall with thirteen gates. They are so narrow that they give access only to one person a time.” Tatunca added that the city had a Great Temple of the Sun, that it contained documents, such as maps and drawings telling the history of the Earth. “One of the maps shows that our moon is not the first and not the only one in the history of the earth. The moon that we know began to approach the earth and to circle around it thousands of years ago.”
The third fortress was Akahim, which was apparently not mentioned in the chronicle before the year 7315 BC, was linked with Akakor, and was situated on the borders of Brazil and Venezuela. Finally, Cuczo and Macchu Picchu were known to be genuine towns, but the latter’s history definitely did not stretch anywhere as far back as even 1000 BC and seemed void of any ancient astronauts that Tatunca attached to them.

Tatunca Nara concluded that 26 stone cities were built around Akakor, including Humbaya and Paititi in Bolivia, Emin, Cadira in Venezuela, etc. As stone is rare in these locations, it merely underlined that, if genuine, these were indeed extraordinary finds. Alas, Tatunca added, “all these were completely destroyed in the first Great Catastrophe thirteen years after the departure of the Gods.” It meant that there was very little left to check on the ground. It also meant that Tatunca’s claims seemed to be unverifiable.
Was Tatunca telling the truth or was he a con artist? It was a very tall tale he told, and with the stakes being very high, Brugger decided to investigate and see where the rabbit – or Tatunca – would take him. The two decided to go on an expedition in search of Akahim, setting off on September 25, 1972, on a trip that would last six weeks. Akahim, however, was not discovered.

That was Act One. In 1976, The Chronicle of Akakor was published and the controversy was reignited. Part of the core message of the chronicle was the statement that there was a network of tunnels, some of it still in existence today and used by the Indians. On his part, during the summer of 1977, von Däniken travelled for a third time to Manaus, to meet with Tatunca Nara, in the hope that via Tatunca, he could produce evidence and vindicate himself.
Apart from von Däniken and Brugger, a third European entered the scene: a former Swissair pilot Ferdinand Schmid, who was living in Brazil, and who contacted Tatunca Nara in 1975. In 1977 and 1978, the pair made several attempts to penetrate into the jungle, in search of Akahim. The 1978 expedition was joined by an archaeologist, Roldao Pires Brandao, added to the team by the Brazilian government. He was also the reason why the mission had to be abandoned: Brandao apparently shot himself in the arm, for unknown reasons. But once recovered, he got the Brazilian authorities sufficiently interested to set up an expedition of their own and he eventually set off with six men.
In its August 1, 1979 edition, Veja, a Brazilian magazine, reported the discovery of Akahim, including a number of photographs. That same year, Tatunca and Schmid claimed to have found Akahim too – sort of. Early on, Tatunca had stated that Akahim had three large pyramids and they claimed to have found these. Still, though seen, they had not visited the site itself and Schmid lost – or claimed to have lost – his camera and film.

Then began Act Two for real. It was the timeframe when the story of Juan Moricz, the man who had taken von Däniken to see subterranean tunnels in Ecuador, and Tatunca merged: Tatunca stated that he knew Moricz, when he was staying in Venezuela in 1967. So two separate stories of underground tunnels were now possibly linked. When Stan Hall – who knew Moricz well – was asked to comment, he noted that Moricz did spend time in Venezuela, a fact that is not often reported or known. As Moricz was also quite a high-profile visitor to the country (he befriended the president), that Tatunca met Moricz is therefore not an impossibility. But whether it is significant, is an entirely different matter.
The legend of Akakor unexpectedly received an entirely new dimension when Karl Brugger was murdered leaving a restaurant in Rio de Janeiro on January 1, 1984. Though a life does not cost much in Brazil and armed robbery is even more violent there than in the rest of Southern America, some have queried whether his murder had anything to do with his book and/or knowledge of Akakor. So far, no-one has been able to show a link. At the time, Tatunca Nara was apparently questioned, but was able to provide an alibi for his whereabouts.

Then came Act Three – which is an act that few people have seen or known about. Since the 1970s, the Amazon has become much more open to the world and parts where Brugger had great difficulty in getting to, are now less so. Akakor, however, remains undiscovered. At the same time, the question needs to be posed whether Tatunca merely drove Brugger into the jungle, knowing that they would at some point hit an obstacle, which would necessitate their return home…
After Brugger, Tatunca Nara took several others into the jungle, apparently all enthralled by the legend of Akakor, and trying to be the discoverer – or at least co-discoverer – of this mythical city.
In 1980, Tatunca left with the American John Reed on such an expedition, but only Tatunca Nara returned; what happened to John Reed is unknown, but it is assumed he died in the rain forest. In 1983, Tatunca left with the Swiss explorer Herbert Wanner, and he didn’t return either. A few years later, a group of tourists came across a human skull, which was later identified as Wanner’s. In 1987, the Swedish Christine Heuser also left with Nara on an expedition, and disappeared as well. Tatunca Nara later denied he travelled with any of these into the jungle, but the site where Wanner’s skull was found, left no doubt whatsoever that he had left on an expedition – Nara being the only logical guide that accompanied him.
Rumours of Tatunca’s own death circulated on a number of occasions, but it is known that he is still alive and lives in Barcelos, along the Rio Negro. In 2003, he had himself declared as mentally instable, but he nevertheless continues to offer his services as a tour guide for any willing parties.

¤=[Post Update]=¤

What is less known – the Final Act – is that – alas – the story of Akakor turned out to be a fraud. The story was unravelled when Tatunca Nara was exposed as being in truth one Günther Hauck, a German ex-pat. The discovery was made by the German adventurer Rüdiger Nehberg and film director Wolfgang Brög. Brög tricked Tatunca to take him onto an expedition, during which his story began to unravel. It then became clear that Tatunca had left Germany in 1967, which explained why he spoke perfect German, yet broken Portuguese. Apparently, he left Germany as he was trying to escape imprisonment due to unpaid alimony after a divorce in 1966. Since, his ex-wife has confirmed that Hauck is indeed the “Tatunca Nara” on Brugger’s photos and there are also pre-1968 German court proceedings that mention Hauck preferred to go by a nickname Tatunge Nare.

That, alas, is the unfortunate story of the legend of Akakor, which killed at least three people and which was, in origin, the story of a man who was able to con the world. It is a story of our human nature and our desire for adventure and a larger than life reality. It is, however, mostly a story of how we can be blinded by appeal, despite all the evidence or logic against.
No-one doubts that there are still undiscovered settlements and tribes in the Amazon and since the 1970s, when this story started, several have been discovered. But tunnels or stone cities in the heartland of the Amazon are unlikely for anyone who has been in the rainforest. To find a written chronicle here is unlikely, but not impossible. But an Amazonian chronicle that would “prove” dates of 10,481 BC – a very Western, Cayce-ite date – should ring clear alarm bells in the minds of most, if not all. Finally, for the men who knew and met Tatunca Nara, the fact that he spoke better German than Portuguese, and the local knowledge that Tatunca was the only gringo who tried to get himself passed off as an Indian, should have made all of them extremely wary. But the appeal of his story was such that it sent men on a quest for Akakor, which very much became to them their private Grail Quest. Alas, for some, the fact that they did not ask the proper question about Tatunca before setting off, didn’t result in them waking up in an empty castle in the morning, but that they never woke up ever again…
.................................................. .................................................. ................
some read the story in an other way.........

(....) «What can we deduce from Tatunca Nara's story, and Karl Brugger's account? Could Brugger have made up the whole story? Could he have combined existing legends with 20th century history? It's possible but not likely. Although some parts of the story may seem far-fetched, for the most part they are true, as far as Brugger knew it.
There are some parallels between the Chromicle of Akakor and the Peruvian legends of Gran Paititi. Was Paititi where the last Incas fled? Was Akakor the Inca Paititi?
Tatunca Nara spoke broken German. If he lived in the jungle all his life, where did he learn German? From Reinha, his mother? Since the Chromicle of Akakor was published, several explorers have lost their life searching for Akakor. Gregory Deyermenjian, an American explorer who had spent a lot of time in Peru in search of Gran Paititi, reportedly told David Childress (the author of Lost Cities and Ancient Mysteries of South America) about a young American from a wealthy family who came to Cuzco (Peru) in 1977 obsessed with finding Akakor.

He said the young American hired a hotel owner to escort him to the headwaters of Rio Yaco where he planned to meet an Indian guide who would lead him to Akakor. But the headwaters of the Rio Yaco is located in a very remote area nearly impossible to reach from Peru. The hotel owner escorted him as far as Cosnipate.
The young aristocrat was never seen or heard from again. It seems quite plausible that the Ugha Mongulala are real people, and with that, we must accept the reality that they have real traditions and real cities. If Tatunca Nara really had a German mother, than it is quite plausible that Germans could have had an influence on their traditions and their mythology.

Karl Brugger investigated whether the Nazis actually occupied Akakor and whether or not they had a plan to invade Brazil. According to Brugger, the Third Reich believed it was essential to keep Brazil neutral in order for the German U-boats to have uncontested control of the South Atlantic, and an invasion of Brazil was the natural expansion plan of the Third Reich.

But the United States ruined their plan by persuading the Brazilian government to align with the Allies. Unhappy with Brazil's decision to side with the Allies, Germany retaliated by sinking as many as 38 Brazilian ships by U-boats from 1942 to the end of the war. But was it possible for Germany to land soldiers in Amazonia and make their way to Akakor?
Apparently, there are eye-witness accounts of German U-boats landing on the coast of Rio de Janeiro, and in 1938 a Nazi U-boat established contact with the German colony at Manaus and made a geological survey including a documentary film of Amazonia, which has been preserved in the East Berlin archives.

In May 1945, on the day before Germany surrendered, two U-boats, U-530 and U-977, departed from northern Germany and headed to South America. About three months later, they surrendered to Argentina, at different times. When the captians of the U-boats were turned over to the Americans, under thorough interrogation, they said they had had no important passengers onboard and that the reason they surrendered to Argentina was because they did not want to surrender to the British.
But where had they been prior to their surrender? And why did it take them nearly three months to surrender?

Natunca Nara supposedly knew nothing of the war in Europe. His knowledge of the war was limited to what the Germans told him, and yet, according to Natunca Nara, Germans were still sending soldiers to Akakor in May 1945.

As if that wasn't suspicious enough, Karl Brugger was murdered outside his apartment in Manaus by an unknown assailant (assassin?). Why? Did his murder have anything to do with his book, and/or his knowledge of Akakor? The answer will probably never be known. And so the question begs to be repeated: Does an ancient stone city or cities exist on the Brazilian-Peruvian border? On December 30, 1975, the Landsat II satellite photographed an area of southeastern Peru at 13° S latitude, 71° 30" W longitude. The photographs revealed 12 pyramids covered with trees. Unfortunately, all attempts to reach these pyramids have led to the death and disappearance of many explorers. Could these pyramids be a part of the ancient Akakor complex?»
It is known that a group of people calling themselves "representatives of the German Consulate," stormed his hotel room and confiscated all documents, as well as the entire material Brugger about the three lost cities. The same happened in Germany and what little was left, or rather survived, was in the hands of friends of the journalist and happily this way could not be confiscated or censored!

WHO therefore be interested in eliminating Karl Brugger and along with him to destroy all your precious records on important archaeological repositories Brazilian great vestiges of a lost civilization evolved? Why exactly prevent the publication of the original drafts of his book, which were held by a German editor? For what exactly the Nazis had much interest in the Amazon jungles...?

According to Tatunca, the Ugha Mongulala were chosen by “the gods” to be the record-keepers of the planet after the gods sudden departure in the year zero (10,481 BC by our calendar). The gods built a highly protected underground fortress in a very inaccessible locale. The Ugha Mongulala were given special stones to “view” any place on earth and to record key planetary events. These records were written in a hieroglyphic text called the “script of the Ancient Fathers”.

They told of the gods arrival, great wars, the building of the Akakorian empire, the departure of the gods, the birth of the Incas, the construction of great cities, the coming of the Spanish, and three periods of great planetary upheaval, two that have happened and one that is yet to come. The dates given in the account were remarkably close to dates referred to in other accounts of pre-history and ancient history, such as the Bible and the Sumerian record.

The gods left one of their “flying disks” as “credentials” for the Ugha Mongulala. Tatunca also claims that there are four of the gods reamining in stone columns in the deep inner recesses of the temple. Brugger surmised that they are mummified or in some kind of suspended animation. Reportedly they look just like us except they have six fingers on each hand.

The Akakorian priests prophesized that “the white barbarians will eventually discover Akakor and there they will find in it their own mirror image, thus the circle will be closed”. Karl Brugger published his findings in 1972 and was planning a trip to Akakor at the time of his murder.

A site from a brasilian writer, SÉRGIO O. RUSSO, that investigates strange fenomena for 35 years, has some fotos made by F. Bruugger (taken from one of F.Brugger books ) and from a Brasilen magazine «VEJA».

Shows Brruger among the Uga Mogulalas, an exemple of the «writing of the Gods and Nasa fotos taken from LANDSAT 11 Satelite above the area.


One has to enter and search in the site AKAKOR...ENJOY :)...this site has many wonderful surprises...

Interesting that these people supposedly spoke an ancient language called "Guechua". Many of the the tribes in the head water area of the amazon speak a language that is called "Quechua".

But this is like many of the signposts in the original story, in that it offers no real proof, really. The story has all the earmarks of being written "front to back" instead of the way history happens... "back to front".

more interesting...
Tatunca. How like Tatonka, which is Lakota for Buffalo

Anyway... good story

Fredkc, I agree with with you. The info has been manipulate. But there are a lot of «holes» in the story.
«Keep it simple», my teacher use to say.
What strikes me here is the «police case», more than the Info , in itself. Follow the money is usually a good clue. F. Hugger publications were suspended and the papers in his house disappeared .

You made «search« for more....:)

Quechua is a Native American language family or macrolanguage spoken primarily in the Andes of South America, derived from an original common ancestor language, Proto-Quechua. It is the most widely spoken language family of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, with a total of probably some 6 to 8 million speakers (estimates vary widely). Some speakers of Quechua also call it 'runa simi' (or regional variants thereof), literally 'people speech', although 'runa' here has the more specific sense of indigenous Andean people.

I'm new to this story. This thread came up on google search for AKAKOR. I did find a PDF for Karl Bruggers book if anyone would like to read it.

It is an interesting story. There seems to be a connection to Hollow Earth here somewhere along with a German South American connection. The German's arriving in South American and the Antarctic underground bases have been covered before else where. Their coverage all seem to lack a proper context into what really happened, what Germany was doing in the area, and why that area was chosen.

The Nazi's went there to hide meme does have some truth to it... It doesn't appear to be the whole truth.

This does not explain everything but is another piece of the puzzle.

Wolfgang Brög documented my journey by paddle boat across the Atlantic from my start in Senegal to my arrival in Brazil. Best transmission time, ZDF. Then I often travelled with Wolfgang, particularly in Brazil. There is no tributary of the Rio Negro where we haven’t been.

He succeeded in making a really impressive reportage in Amazonia, where he revealed the true identity of the alleged “chieftain” Tatunca Nara and proved that the mysterious murders in his surroundings were actually the work of this “great chieftain”: "Das Geheimnis des Tatunca Nara" (The Mystery of Tatunca Nara). He also proved that the man was in reality Hansi Richard Günter Hauck from the picturesque Franconia in Bavaria.
