Sunday, March 29, 2009 at the Best Western Jicarilla Inn in Dulce, New Mexico, the first UFO conference dedicated entirely to the discussion of secret underground bases will be held, hosted by Japanese Ufologist Norio Hayakawa.
Dulce, New Mexico, a sleepy little town of less than 4000 (inhabited by the Jicarilla Apache nation), has attracted quite a number of UFO and conspiracy buffs ever since rumors surfaced in the mid-80s that a U.S./alien joint biological laboratory and base exists a mile under the town’s Archuleta Mesa. “This rumor has become so well known among UFO buffs around the world that anyone doing a Yahoo or Google search on Dulce, New Mexico would find the bulk of over 300,000 search results related to the alleged underground base,” Hayakawa said..
Skeptical of such claims, Hayakawa, a retired funeral director, visited the town of Dulce in 1990 with the crew of a Japanese television program to attempt to document the existence of such an alien base.
Although he was unsuccessful in locating it, Hayakawa claims that he and the television crew were inexplicably detained by the police chief while interviewing the citizens on the street about UFOs and cattle mutilations.
. . .
Hayakawa believes that there could be prosaic explanations to both the UFO sightings and cattle mutilations, although he still doesn’t have the answers.
It was during the mid-80s that wild stories of an underground alien base surfaced – and still continue to this day – so much so that the entire town of Dulce has almost become synonymous with the alleged alien underground bio-lab. The fact that Dulce is located only 100 miles northwest of Los Alamos provided additional fuel for the conspiracy buffs. According to Hayakawa, Los Alamos is the leading-edge research laboratory on human genome/DNA research in the U.S.
But again, Hayakawa likes to remain skeptical when it comes to “underground bases.”
Although throughout the years the residents of Dulce seem to have taken all these strange rumors about their community with a grain of salt, Hayakawa says that he would like to restore some sense of normalcy to Dulce.
This is the reason why he will host Dulce’s first public conference on the topic.
Hayakawa is intent on dispelling rumors, once and for all, that there are such bases in or near Dulce.
Will the townsfolk of Dulce speak up at the conference? Will there be some new revelations about Dulce?
One of the official speakers at the underground bases conference (officially titled “DULCE: FACT OR FICTION”) will be Greg Bishop, author of Project Beta.
From his blog:
The holy grail of underground UFO bases may or may not be located near Dulce, in far northwestern New Mexico. This small town, located on the Jicarilla Apache reservation, was the epicenter for strange light sightings and cattle mutilation activity from the late 1970s to the late ’80s.
. . .
I’m going to ask the organizers if I can make a presentation on the “FICTION” part of the conference proceedings, although I’d be interested to hear others present data on the “FACT” evidence.
The legends surrounding the underground base in Dulce continue to haunt the UFO community to this day, and the mystery’s notoriety continues to grow.
