Origins of the words "Sasquatch" and "Bigfoot"
Indian tribes across North America have a total of more than sixty different terms for the Sasquatch.
"Bigfoot" was a journalistic term generated in the middle of the last century during a rash of sightings in Northern California. The word has come to be recognized widely.
Many different terms have been used by pioneers and later non-native inhabitants of North America, including "skookums" and "mountain devils".
The description given here is derived from a compilation of thousands of eye witness reports from the entire continent, some of astounding length, detail, and corroborative evidence; the Patterson movie, taken in 1967, and a recent computer-based image analysis of it; and statistical analysis of a large database accumulated over the last fifty years, primarily by John Green.

I personally prefer the term Bigfoot...I really don't know why.
