Native Americans And Bigfoot - Random Thoughts

It is believed that among the Native Americans, the existence of sasquatch is taken for granted along with his strong psychic abilities.

He always knows when people are looking for him and he decides who gets to see him, to interact with him. He has psychic powers which allow him to avoid capture or being hunted. They view sasquatch as a member of the family -- a close relative, "the great elder brother".

Sasquatch also has a place in the real world; that he is a natural flesh and blood creature, as much a part of nature as deer or bear, just more rare and elusive. He is not meant to be "known" in the way white man "knows" things. To encounter one is fortunate. Do not chase it; let it be.

Clayton Mack, a Native American from Bella Coola, British Columbia, said: "Half man, half animal, I think. Just like man, but can't make fire, which seems to be all."

Some Native Americans believe he is a shy and benign creature. He may take items that don't belong to him; kidnap a human wife, but he does not mean to harm people. He may even offer aid when needed. Perhaps he lives in a small family group; exchanges gifts with man; may use sign language to communicate with men.

Others think of sasquatch as malevolent beings. They will attack humans, play dangerous tricks on them or even steal children. They are cannibals. They are referred to as "Stick Indians" or "Bush Indians". They are believed to be found in large groups or even villages.

Well, I said this was random thoughts, so now random it goes.

Ba ' oush or ba ' wes  meaning "Wildman". Tsimshian from North British Columbia. They regard him as just another man, hairy, without tools, but may use rocks and sticks. A forest-dwelling people leading a simple, solitary life.

boq - a name from the Bella Coola region of British Columbia. Said to resemble a man with hands like a human, eyes very human-like. Walks on two feet in a stooping posture, with long arms reaching below his knees. He is believed to be shorter than man; his body except for his face, covered in hair, especially thick upon his broad chest. He is said to be very strong.

buk ' wus from the Kwakuitl  in southern British Columbia.

be'a' - nu' -mbe meaning "brother in the woods" from western Native Americans. They look at him as a long lost brother, living in the mountains, only coming out in bad times. He is large, powerful, and to be respected. He is not a monster.

squee'-noos meaning bigfoot or wildman, from the Nanaimo Salish. They have stories of women being carried off by the wildman.

chiyo-tanka of the Lakota, western Sioux and chiha-tanka of the Dakota, eastern Sioux meaning "elder brother" "great" or "big". When speaking in English they will call him "The Big Man".

The Hunkpapa Lakota say that The Big Man is like a husband to the earth. He has a natural wisdom. Sometimes he will appear as a sort of reptile from ancient times who can take on a hair-covered form. Also, he is said to be able to change into a coyote.

Oglala Lakota say that he is both Spirit Animal and a real being. He can glide through the forest as if the trees were not there. They consider him a brother. They are blessed if he touches them.

c'latqo from the Quinault.

wetiko from the Plains Cree. Their word for wendigo.

Ojibway identify bigfoot with the wendago, a cannibal giant of their stories.

Hopi elders say that the increasing appearances of bigfoot are a sign to those he appears to. His appearance is linked to evil times and he comes as a warning from the creator of man's disrespect that has upset the harmony and balance of the earth.

The Iroquois also view bigfoot as a messenger from the creator trying to warn us to change our ways. They regard him as spiritual or interdimensional  beings. They can come and go from our physical dimension as they please and choose who they will allow to see them -- and always for a reason. wendigo, wittiko.

Micmac call him chenoo.
Penobscott use kiwakwe.

An 1888 journal from James C Wyatt's grandfather had this interesting story to tell. A "small moon" descended and ejected several creatures, man-like but covered in hair. The moon was piloted by very human-looking entities. These entities would wave at the Native Americans whenever they dumped these creatures. The Native Americans called these creatures "Crazy Bears".

James Wyatt: "Who is to say the Crazy Bears weren't exiled to our planet for some crime or other infraction of the laws of another planet?"

Researcher/author Kewaunee Lapseritis claimed that bigfoot was brought to earth by the "Star People" long before human civilization.

As you can see, there is just as many theories and ideas of bigfoot as the community has as a whole, adding to the confusion and bewilderment of all of us.

And sadly we will most likely never glean a straight forward and honest account of what the Native Americans know about this large hair covered being. We have not earned the right to ask trust from these people. When the stories were first shared with white men, they were treated like fairy tales, stories to entertain the children, that these were not real creatures. No matter how hard the Elders tried to make white men understand. And through that understanding know enough to leave these magnificent creatures alone to live their lives as they wish with all the respect they deserve.

And we still don't get it. So many treat the subject of The Big Man as a game, a puzzle to discover how to put the pieces together so we can show everyone how clever we are.

Go. Look in the woods and fields for him. Go. And know that if you are lucky enough to see one, it is because you are meant to catch a glimpse of this magnificent creature. Hold that view of him in your heart and know that you have been blessed.
