Native Americans And Bigfoot

A very intriguing interview with anthropologist Kathy Strain, author of Giants, Cannibals, & Monsters.  I think it’s very interesting to hear that most Native Americans believed Sasquatch to be a “brother” rather than a primate.  But worse – a cannibal.  In some cases, their oral history tells of warfare with Bigfoots, due to their stealing of Indian children as a food source.

In the years of enjoying programs about Sasquatch, I’ve seen many a Bigfoot hunter bring up the fact that the American Indian believed in the existence of these hairy beasts.  They do so as a “Look, I’m not a crazy person.  The Indians believe what I believe.  So are you calling American Indians crazy?”  Funny that they stop short of mentioning the cannibal part.  Cherry-picking at its finest.

Kinda makes the Finding Bigfoot episode where they used Girl Scouts as bait to attract curious child-loving beasts somewhat disturbing.

I knew that my life-long fear/hate/distrust of Bigfoot wasn’t unfounded.  The American Indian backs me up on this.  You calling them crazy?
