The Stonish Giant -- Mountain Monsters Style

Time for another Mountain Monsters bigfoot. This one comes from season four. The Stonish Giant of Hamilton County, Ohio.

Once again the AIMS team plunged into Native American legends to find a name for a bigfoot to hunt. There are many stories of giants, hairy men, giant hairy men, and other various hair-covered creatures in Native legends. The Stonish Giant, as far as I can tell, is a legend of giant men and not necessarily hair covered.

There are similar stories of Stonish Giants told in several different tribes. A common theme is they were an ancient tribe that lived in the wilderness. It is said that they would roll in the mud or sand, covering their bodies. They would then let it dry, forming a second skin on them, making them resemble stone. And so the name, Stonish Giants.
Now, this ancient tribe loved to make war on the other tribes. But they did not win those wars. Once defeated, they retreated back into the wilderness.  This ancient tribe was said to be cannibals who also ate the raw flesh of animals. However, in all the tales seen from the various tribes, I could find no mention of these giants having hair or fur-covered bodies.

And now, cue the AIMS team.

According to their preparation for the trip and their research before heading into Ohio, the guys discussed how the Stonish Giant was a bigfoot with fur so thick that arrows could not penetrate it.

Our Mountain Monsters men could have borrowed from another legend, one told by the Onandagas. They have a story of a man who was once like other men, but he had an enormous appetite that he could not fill. And so, needing more to eat than he could find, he became a cannibal. He began to grow larger and larger until he grew as large as a giant. His skin hardened and eventually changed into scales that became too thick for arrows to penetrate. This may have been the basis for the thick fur for purposes of the Stonish Giant story.

The AIMS team had quite an adventure chasing this bigfoot around the woods of Ohio. (Actually filmed in West Virginia, they tell me. Not in Ohio.)

I do like the fact that they promoted Bigfoot in Ohio, even if they modified a couple of legends to do so. I also suggest that people not come to Ohio looking for the Stonish Giant. However, you will find evidence and people who have had experiences with bigfoot in almost every corner of the state.
