Bigfoot In American Lore


Check out this informative article about bigfoot in Native American and American folklore. There's some really good information in there for bigfoot enthusiasts.

Mention the name Bigfoot and most people will picture the 1987 film Harry and the Hendersons. Or maybe the controversial 1967 clip shot by filmmakers Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin, where a tall, hairy, bipedal ape — or a man in an elaborate costume, depending on whom you believe — strolled across Northern California’s Bluff Creek and into America’s pop culture consciousness forever.

But the story of Bigfoot started long before the monster-crazed years of the Atomic Age. In fact, the folklore of the frontier is rich with Bigfoot tales. Newspaper accounts from the 19th century are brimming with giant wild men, wood apes, and the like, many of which bear a striking resemblance to the descriptions of the creature that persist today — tall, hairy, bipedal, somewhere between a man and an ape, and, more often than not, stinky.

On the Tule River Indian Reservation, in California’s Sierra Nevada foothills, a set of giant pictographs tells an even older story — the creation tale of the Yokut people and the gatekeeper of their spiritual world, a figure known as Hairy Man.

The pictographs feature a veritable mountain menagerie, including coyote, beaver, eagle, condor, and bear, all well-documented animals who also serve a supernatural role in the tribe’s origin story.

“They’re somewhere between 3,000 and 1,800 years old,” says Kathy Strain, Forest Heritage Resource and Tribal Relations Programs Manager for Stanislaus National Forest and author of Giants, Cannibals & Monsters: Bigfoot in Native Culture. “The Hairy Man is actually 8 feet tall.

“[The Yokut] believe when you see a Bigfoot, it’s not a good sign. It means he’s coming to take somebody who’s going to pass over to the other side. There’s even a Hairy Man song that women sing during a funeral, to make sure he does take that soul over.”

  1. are the skeptics that daft to think about 2000 years ago there were hoaxers roaming the north American forests dressed in gorilla suits ? Of course not, only the biggest of fools can ever think that . The story of bigfoot goes that far back long before any Europeans arrived

    1. Yeah sure they kept journals 2000 years ago documenting what they seen and stories handed down from one generation to another never get changed or exaggerated. Of course every human pictograph image is a Bigfoot (rolls eyes). The most flimsiest argument for Bigfoot's existence ever.

    4. So let’s get this straight... Every ancient indegenous culture in North America, whose names for this creature follow the summit ridges & peaks of all the mountain ranges... Who have consistently described the same physical and behavioural traits, whose dances and ceremonies to this day depict exactly what modern accounts?

      I bet you’re king of your universe, sat there surrounded by empty bottles cheering on your own comments like some deranged pervert?

    5. "How consistent are the Coast Salish descriptions of the creatures that fit the minimal description of the hypothetical hominid? As I have already indicated; they are not very consistent. Nocturnal habits are mentioned most often and where not mentioned it could be an accidental omission. Hair covering the body is not consistently mentioned and some descriptions seem to imply a more human covering. About half the descriptions mention the habit of stealing food, less than half the stealing of women and children. In some they speak but in others they cannot speak but whistle. They may travel through water or avoid water. In one area they have unbending legs that allows them to run downhill only. In another they have spikes on their toes for kicking people. Some of them seem to have the rudiments of culture, others do not."

    10. Delicious ! Absolutely delicious the way iktomi just destroyed the Pedo name Stu Savile . and what gets me is Stu keeps coming back fro more and more. i think that can be attributed to his twisted sexual fantasies and he must also be into S&M because no one would ever show their face after being humiliated as many times as he has
      pure gold lads !
      cheers
