This Q & A addresses many of the initial questions expected as a result of the publication of the SGP’s research proving the existence of the beings commonly known in the U.S. as Bigfoot or Sasquatch.
It must be noted that the Bigfoot research community, while including many dedicated, well-meaning and enthusiastic people, has generally not learned from accumulated knowledge gained through sighting reports, eye witness testimony, Native American accounts, or the experiences of habituators and long-term witnesses. Instead, Bigfoot research has been held back by a culture of competition and contentiousness, and a pattern of cyclical debate that disregards the field’s own data and observances. It is the opinion of the SGP that this behavior, and the lack of adequate professional involvement, has prevented progress in the field, which is why the idea that Sasquatch were apes has been so pervasive.
