Aryan was a term among the Nazi Party. It was used by the Third Reich before and during World War II. While these humans were biological Tau'ri, they believed the Germanic peoples are an ancient people called the Aryans, to which they saw themselves as Aryans and as the superior race of all humanity and classed most other Tau'ri groups to be sub-human on Earth.
The Ahnenerbe Project; the Nazi effort to uncover evidence in the ancient world that the Aryan race are superior. Over time, the project leader Wilhelm Brücke had become less interested in that mission and more invested in his own pet project. After coming across a mysterious artifact in a Berlin vault that had been unearthed in Egypt decades earlier, Brücke became convinced that aliens — not Aryans — were responsible for the technologically-puzzling artifact.
