Boy sees Bigfoot sitting on bank

People talked about these big hairy people-like creatures ever since I can remember.

In my Yugtun dialect, we call them Miluquyulit (the throwers) because they throw something at you when if you get too close to them or to let you know they are there.

They throw something like, most of the time I heard, a piece of dry branch – but never to hit, just so the person will see the branch.

I never saw one, but people said they are very big, with hair all over the body, arms down past the knees, and don’t seem to have a neck. When they turn their head, the upper part of their body turns.

My mom’s young cousin saw one when he and his step-brother were looking for rocks for their slingshots along the riverbank during low tide at fish camp.

He said his step-brother was doing something and was behind him, but he, trying to find more rocks walked on ahead picking up little rocks that he saw.

He said he then looked up into the trees above the riverbank where water doesn’t reach at high tide, and saw a very big, hairy manlike creature sitting there between two trees, holding the trees alongside him, his legs hanging; the creature was watching him and his step-brother who was behind him.

  1. Goodfoot responds:

    Yugtun. Oh. You’re gonna make me look it up, aren’t you?

  2. corrick responds:

    Wow. Another story without any specific, trackable source. And with the Native American Indian slant to make it even more believable to most.
    Has as much value as my claimed sightings of a T-Rex during Vietnam.

  3. chewbaccalacca responds:

    Interesting, but even moreso when you read it in the context of the other reports linked to at the bottom of that Alaskan/Native American site. I’m struck by the sincerity of the eyewitnesses; it’s pretty obvious no one is looking for either money or fame.

  4. DWA responds:

    Isn’t it interesting how, when Natives and Europeans alike start their descriptions from scratch, whatever their cultural reference point, they’re all describing the same thing?

    If you are a person of normal curiosity about stuff, who knows truly interesting things when you see them, well, you do think it’s interesting.

    Corrick: I’m still waiting for the T. rex Vietnam database. ‘Til I see one, well, fantasies are nice. We’re talking about reality here.

  5. PoeticsOfBigfoot responds:

    The same thing, except this time the hairy dude has arms that reach past his knees. Would that make their version of Bigfoot a different species, do you think? Is it a big enough morphological difference to matter?

  6. DWA responds:

    Actually, one of the more consistently-reported physical descriptors is hands very near to slightly beyond the subject’s knees.

    Variation to be expected. We call it ‘sleeve length.’
