Non-human still doesn't necessarily mean ET. We were not the only hominids on the planet, you know, and more are being found all the time.
In fact, what the Dogon describe are not typical ET's, but non-material beings who were concerned about the long-term effects of their presence on us. Their solution was to sequester eight Dogon tribespeople at a remote locale for instruction, and then return those eight to instruct the others. For me, that's a pattern that dovetails well with what many other ancient cultures say.
Here's how the French anthropologist, Marcel Griaule, who studied the Dogon over a period of three decades, put it in his book Conversations With Ogotemmeli:
"The Nummo, acting on behalf of Amma, planned to initiate projects to improve and redeem mankind, but were concerned about the effect of contact between themselves, spiritual beings, and people of flesh and blood. So after the transformation of the eight ancestors, they were taken to heaven with the Nummo to learn the skills of civilization. Later, each was given one of the eight grains of heaven and they returned to live with men again, bringing with them their newly-learned skills."
