The sudden disappearance of some people from a Canadian village in the past has aroused much curiosity in lovers of mystery and the paranormal with specific reference to the UFO aspect of alien abductions.
The inhabitants of an Eskimo village on the shores of Lake Anjikuni in Canada have disappeared without a trace.
Lake Anjikuni used to be in the Kivallig area in Nunavut and is located near the Kazan River, the lake is famous for trout fishing.
Anjikuni was the home of an Inuit tribe of about 30/35 people that developed as a colony and hit the headlines on a cold November day in 1930.
Joe Labelle, was a Canadian fur trapper, was an individual who spent a lot of time outdoors by virtue of his work and
he knew the area well, the stories and legends handed down by the Inuit.
Inuit tribes are very friendly, welcome travelers and offer them shelter for the night. Labelle has generally never been afraid or anxious about the stories she listened to, however a specific night at the lake turned out to be different.
The full moon cast a ghostly brightness throughout the village, all was silent. Even huskies that were usually noisy that night could not be heard barking.
The only sound Joe could hear when he visited the village was his footsteps on the snowy ground. He immediately realized that something was wrong and began to investigate as soon as he entered the village surrounded by an eerie silence. No noise, no conversations, no laughter.
What is worse is that the usual smoke from the chimneys that denoted the presence of the Inuit tribe was completely absent.
Joe spotted a fire in the distance and headed for it to inspect it; the fire seemed to have been burning for a long time. LaBelle continued towards the village, ready to run into someone who could tell him what had happened there, he began an investigation by visiting the homes of the Inuit to look for any clues relating to silence and to understand if it was appropriate to make the decision to leave the village immediately.
He found that several houses were still well stocked with food and weapons; he found a burnt meal in another house. He found that the processing of a sealskin had not been completed. Unfortunately, he was unable to conclude anything.
Since he could not find a conclusive answer on what happened, he concluded that an unexpected event must have occurred that involved all 30 men, women and children of the village. Food, clothing, and weapons were there in their places. Why?
Further investigation led him to a discovery that was enough to give him goosebumps. Whatever had happened remained a mystery.
He scanned the entire village but found no new tracks in the snow other than his own. The most horrifying discovery he made concerned the death of the dogs. Each of them had died of hunger!
This evidence convinced him that he had to go to the nearest telegraph office to sound the alarm.
As tired and frozen as Labelle was, he eventually made it to the telegraph office. Within minutes he sent an emergency message to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). By the time the Royal Police arrived several hours later, Labelle had calmed down enough to tell this story.
According to the 1984 article – The World’s Most Significant UFO Mysteries, written by Roger Boar and Nigel Blundell, the police asked the animal hunter if he had seen anything strange in the last few days.
After asking this question, the hunter was forced to admit that he and his two sons had noticed a mysterious light in the skies flying into the sky a few days earlier.
He also claimed to have seen these giant, glittering “flying lights” change shape right in front of their eyes and that these lights were flying in the direction of the village on Lake Anjikuni.
So what happened in the village on Lake Anjikuni?
This huge conundrum is real and no one knows what or who was responsible for the disappearance of the Inuit tribe in the 1930s.
The disappearance of the Eskimos from Lake Anjikuni is still a great mystery.
The disappearances of the lake have always been a major talking point among those who presume that the Anjikuni tribe vanished so unpredictably.
What makes it so enigmatic is the fact that no hint of struggle or violence has been found. While we must believe they were killed or kidnapped, there should at least be some sign of commotion.
This, coupled with the fact that experienced investigators were unable to find any indication of the route these 30 people took as they left the village, left the researchers speechless.
At the end of the 20th century, various ufologists speculated that the inhabitants of this village may have been innocent victims of one of the most significant mass alien abductions in history.
Although the evidence supporting this hypothesis is anecdotal at best, the hypothesis is equally exciting and terrifying at the same time. Imagining that aliens have kidnapped an entire village is stuff for a thriller.
Whatever the case may be, the fact remained in the account of a cold night in November 1930, in which about 30 men, women and children fled their homes and disappeared forever.
The mystery remained unsolved, no one has ever brought a useful result to the research unfortunately.
Where is the truth?
The most famous published account of Joe Labelle’s mysterious encounter comes from Frank Edwards’ book, “Stranger than Science”, from 1959, in which Edwards devotes three short pages to the story but the first recorded publication on Lake Anjikuni is a 1976 quote from an article dated November 29, 1930, written by an Emmett E. Kelleher in an article in “The Bee” of Danville, Virginia, later confused with the Halifax Herald newspaper.
Brian Dunning of the Skeptoid website investigated this case and traced it back to the November 29, 1930 article written by Kelleher.
He noted several inconsistencies in the original story.
He also noted that the alleged population of the village increased in size in subsequent revelations and other facts were also manipulated. The testimony and description of a UFO was first mentioned in the press in the book “The Greatest UFO Mysteries of the World” by Nigel Blundell and Roger Boar.
Furthermore, there is no physical evidence of a village on Lake Angikuni, the first telegraph office was more than 1000km from that village, if it existed, much less it seems that the Canadian police of that area have investigated, it seems to have been a organized hoax, but eventually discovered by many ufologists who took turns to reconstruct the facts.
Here is what the police said: “A Mounted Police statement says,” A village with such a large population would not have existed in such a remote area of the Northwest Territories. ” ‘it was caribou skin instead of sealskin; and as a trapper Labelle should have been able to identify it correctly.
So there was a rather unlikely set of circumstances, either Labelle was wrong, or Edwards was wrong. “
Contacted after many years of retirement, the members of the RCMP no one remembered such an investigation, in short, a hoax artfully organized apparently by Emmet Kelleher, perhaps based on a story he had heard from Joe Labelle and repeated several times by mystery writers.
