Yesterday a conference was held in the small town of Dulce, New Mexico to discuss evidence of an underground extraterrestrial base at the nearby Archuleta Mesa. Organized by Norio Hayakawa, a retired funeral director now living in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, The Dulce Base: Fact or Fiction Conference brought together local and outside speakers with knowledge of events at Dulce.
The conference began at the Best Western
Jicarilla Inn but the venue had to be changed to the local civic
meeting room after the first session since not all the audience
could fit inside. Approximately 100 people came from as far away as
Pennsylvania and Hawaii to attend the conference. Hayakawa hoped to
end speculation about the existence of an underground
Speakers and locals were divided over the presence of extraterrestrials at the base, but most agreed that strange events were happening at the Archuleta Mesa. Most speakers believed that some kind of underground base existed, but this was related with classified military projects, and had nothing to do with extraterrestrials.
Some locals joined two of the speakers

While Gomez believed that claims of
extraterrestrials and UFOs related to Archuletta Mesa was
disinformation, he did find evidence of classified military
activities and an air vent to an underground facility during a 1988
expedition. His discovery and photo of the vent was the first
concrete evidence that an underground base does exist at Dulce.
Gabe Valdez, a retired New
Mexico State Trooper, said that there were indeed sensitive
events happening at Dulce which he did not want to discuss, but that
stories of extraterrestrials were not accurate.

He explained how Bennewitz had captured physical evidence of UFOs near Kirtland Air Force Base and connected this to claims of an underground base at the Archuleta Mesa. Bishop explained how in his book on Bennewitz’s claims, Project Beta, that he doubted the existence of an underground base. He had concluded that Bennewitz was side tracked by a disinformation campaign to get him to look away from evidence of events at Kirtland.
Bishop revealed, however, how after the
2005 publication of his book that a number of insiders had confided
to him that an underground base does exist at Ducle. Together with
the discovery of a vent to an underground facility, this led to him
now changing his position and doubting his former skepticism.
Norio Harayama, the conference organizer, also agreed with the interdimensional explanation for the strange events at Dulce and the Archuleta Mesa.
A number of locals then came forward to explain their experiences.
A teacher at the Dulce Elementary School explained how UFOs and extraterrestrials featured prominently in the art and stories of children, especially those from the Jicaralla Apache reservation. The most startlingly testimony came from a retired Dulce police officer named Gabe. Gabe explained how on one evening in the early 1980s he was dispatched to the house of a woman who claimed that small people with strange boxes emitting light were harassing her.
Initially skeptical of what his radio
dispatcher told him, he drove over to the area and saw several UFOs
taking off. He explained how his training had left him unprepared
for what he had seen and how he felt powerless to do anything. His
emotional distress was evident to all who attended and did clearly
demonstrate that UFO and extraterrestrial activities feature
regularly in the small community of Dulce.
The underground extraterrestrial base hypothesis still remains as a plausible explanation for many who attended the first Dulce underground base conference.
