Indian Legend of Hairy Man (AKA Bigfoot)


Editor's Note: This is a guest post by Bigfoot Evidence forum member CMcMillan, a Sasquatch enthusiast.

One thing I have always thought interesting-- Most Native American legends talk about all the animals that once lived with man. In some of these legends they talk about the Hairy Man being one of them. The Hairy Man also helped decide what man would get.

It's facinating since I've always believed that even in ancient legends, there's some basis of truth to it all.

When People Took Over

People spread out all over the mountains, taking all the land and eating all the food. Animals didn't have anyplace to go. Eagle, chief of all the animals, told the animals that they could not remain in their traditional places, because people had taken them. He asked them where they wished to go. Eagle said, "What are you going to become? What will you be? I myself am going to fly high up in the air and live on squirrels and sometimes on deer." Hairy Man said, "I will go live among the big trees (Giant Sequoias) and hunt only at night when people are asleep." Dog said, "I will stay with people and be their friend, I will follow them, and perhaps I will get something to eat in that way." Buzzard said, "When something dies I will smell it. I will go there and eat it." Crow said, "When I see something lying dead, I will pick out its eyes." Coyote said, "I will go about killing grasshoppers. That is how I will live." Hummingbird said, "I will go to the flowers and get my food from them." Condor said, "I will not stay here. I will go far off into the mountains. Perhaps I will find something to eat there." Woodpecker said, "I will get acorns and make holes in the trees [to store them in]." Bluejay said, "I am going to make trees grow over the hills. I will work." Rat said, "I will go where there are old trees and make my house in them." Mouse said, "I will run here, there, and everywhere. I shall have holes, and perhaps I can live in that way." Trout said, "I will live in the water and perhaps I can find something to eat there." That was the time when animals stopped being like us and scattered

    4. I honestly thought just for a second that wetbacks referred to the early European settlers who came here and took the land. I mean by definition they are very similar, y'know? They just kind of moved in on the first Americans.

    5. ...and that white devil comment is maybe the most ignorant one yet. Conjuring up some blame for stuff people everywhere do in every race all the time and just blame it on the ones that have predominated for centuries and travelled all over. Caucasians are half the planet. What an easy target to hit. Did bad stuff? Sure. Devil? No more than you to be sure.

      Are you pretending to be a skeptic because you think it makes you seem smarter than the other footers ?

  3. When you put the stereotyping away and actually sit down and talk with a native elder you can here and feel the wisdom from them.
    I would stop in and visit a cree elder and his wife after work and when the subject of Bigfoot would come up there was no bullshit in the mans eyes or voice.
    I don't know if everything he said was true because I wasn't there but I believed every word of it.
    I am skeptical about some things when it comes to Bigfoot but I was not at skeptical about what he told me.

      Wow!! So what are you trying to say?

      Put down the Hooka and just reflect on what you wrote.

    2. What I meant was I won't state it as fact because I think there are to many facts that are only opinions already, at the same time I myself believed him.
