Mel Skahan is a Native American of the Yakama Nation
I have talked to a few Elders and some of them believe that [Bigfoot Research] is bad medicine –Mel Skahan; Forester; Yakama Nation
In an article published in 2006 we take interest in a comment about bad medicine. What is bad medicine? If you are like me it is cherry-flavored cough syrup, or the only part you sing out load in a Bon Jovi song. Cryptomundians are for more clever and as most of you know Native American “medicine” is not necessarily something you ingest to heal you, it is more like a synonym for power. In other words, Native American medicine is more like the Force in Star Wars and bad medicine is more like pursuing the dark side of the force. Another point of interest to us is this: even though Yakama Nation history predates the white man, it was not until the white man’s arrival that the Sasquatch stopped hanging out with humans. As the story goes, they did not like the technology we brought.
Read the 2006 article that interviews Mel Skahan and his ongoing research, despite his elder’s wishes, at Bigfoot Lunch Club.
