New Easterville Cree Bigfoot Video

Posted by: Loren Coleman on July 10th, 2007

Here’s a new YouTube Bigfoot video. A YouTube viewer says the men are speaking Cree, and the translation of what they are saying is: “There’s someone standing here boy”…(another speaking) “it looks big”….”can you see it boy?”…”it’s kinda far away.”

Easterville is a First Nations community in Manitoba. The following is the only info on the site. See below the video for more historical insights.

My nephew & his buds seen & captured this bigfoot on their camera phone…it didn’t even notice them approaching cause of the wind…very interesting….cooldude311

The damning (I know, they created a “dam” but you get my editorial comment?) of the Saskatchewan River in northern Manitoba flooded out a Canadian Indian community, and an entirely new community on the south shore of the Cedar Lake was built. It was called Easterville, and inhabited by relocated First Nation Cree and others. (Sorry, being part Eastern Band Cherokee, I tend to be sensitive to “relocations.”

On pages 242-248, in John Green’s 1978 edition of Sasquatch: The Apes Among Us, he spends a considerable amount of time detailing the 1968 through mid-1970s sightings and his investigation, along the new road built in northern Manitoba, at Easterville. Indeed, on page 455, Green says Easterville is one of the places where one might have the best chance to see a Sasquatch.

As Green points out, the Cree in Manitoba call these Sasquatch the Weetekow and the Saulteaux term them the Wendego. These are variations on the spelling of the Windigo that I discuss in Chapter 3, “Native Traditions,” in Bigfoot! The True Story of Apes in America, pages 26-34.

It seems only logical that someday, some place a young Cree out with his friends near Easterville, with a cellphone camera, might have caught digitally what their ancestors had only talked about. Either that, or it was a hastily dressed friend in a gorilla suit filmed with that cellphone to get a chuckle via YouTube.

Frankly, what I find interesting is that some of the best, below the media radar, activity and footage, continues to come from First Nations people.

Intriguingly, in Green’s march across historic Sasquatch cases in Manitoba and Canada, the next location he points to for an old case, after Easterville, is Norway House. Of course, Norway House is the location of the relatively recent Bobby Clarke camcorder video of a blurry Bigfoot.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Hey what, I’ve seen them wear the dark navy Fall jacket. It has a Hood that hugs the head. The fabric can look stiff on the back, which I see here. And the obscurity does suggest what is digitally captured here. This may also be an impromptu “Hey he looks like a Bigfoot” moment. I would very much want to see a credible convincing video of the big guy himself. This one, I’m sorry to say is not.

    A couple of things here in regards to First Nations (I still call them Indians because the ones I know still call themselves that) views of sasquatch.

    1. All tribes do not have a sasquatch-like creature in their lore. A much more universal creature in North American lore is the underwater panther. This creature has been the subject of Hopewell and Mississippian pottery and art, right up through historic times. Some still believe in its existence and there are certain places in rivers and streams you avoid. It is not so much a physical creature as a spiritual one. It could help you or harm you depending on the situation you encountered it in.

    2. Belief in the “little people” was widespread among the Plains and Midwestern tribes. Refer to the Lewis & Clark journals about Spirit Mound in Iowa for an idea how these tales run. When visiting friends on a particular reservation, I asked about sasquatch. I was told they did not know such a creature in their history, but I was repeatedly warned about the “little people.” I was told that my children could approach them and even play with them, but if I tried to approach them, they could do me great harm.

    3. Indian people have a great sense of humor. Contrary to popular belief, they are not all stoic and constantly meditating on the spiritual forces in nature. They enjoy a good joke and often at the expense of a gullible white man. It took me a while to learn this, but did I ever learn it!

    Sadly many of the younger generation are losing what little they have of their language and culture. Like so many kids, they are in to video games, rap music, not to mention the widespread abuse of drugs and alcohol. Its a problem that alarms many tribal leaders. The tribal elders I know that still have some old knowledge generally won’t share it with until you have won their trust – and that takes a long time. Even then, if you start asking a lot of questions they usually clam up. You learn more by keeping your mouth shut and listening with respect. They tell when they’re ready to and if they think you need to know.

    GAMMA-MAN: The link you posted reads: “Visible waistline. Consider this image busted.”

    I had to laugh.

    Not that I have the slightest idea what this video is. But one thing that is indubitably NOT visible on it is the jeans and the waistline that everyone seems to insist upon seeing. That still image, in fact, SIMPLY DOES NOT APPEAR in my repeated viewings of the footage. It’s an electro-artifact, something several times removed from the original.

    I’m becoming more and more convinced by the day that modern video technology is actually helping the sasquatch stay undiscovered. Blobsquatch after blobsquatch gets served up on site after site. It is in a number of cases (and this is one) utterly impossible to determine what the heck the thing in the footage is. But people see what they try to see, pro or con. Everyone coming to this footage with a “let me debunk this for you, sir/ma’am” attitude will see just what they want to from this total blobsquatch – even if it’s Jordache! I’m surprised no one has read the tag yet. Seriously, it’s amazing the stuff people can see when they need to. It’s touching, in a way, this childlike need we moderns have to hold on tight to our debunking myths and folklore.

    Sorry, had to put the shoe on the other foot for a moment. But Need to Disbelieve or Need to Debunk isn’t helping here, anymore than Rabid Belief is. It’s always good to remember that people, Native or not, come equipped with often-unpredictable senses of humor. As to why the video doesn’t show this or that other thing that it “should,” there are a number of possible reasons. Only one, and in this case the most obvious one: Ever shot a video on a small (like a phone or mini-digital) camera? You are not going to get much video shot; in fact you’ll get the “memory done, dude” right about the time you think, well, let’s zoom back and get a full body shot here. What stays in the frame is at least mildly intriguing. It could indeed be a foraging sasquatch.

    If, that is, it’s not a foraging guy in a hoodie.

    The point has been made (and once again here) that circling Debunk Vultures aren’t exactly moving the field forward. Particularly when they see Gloria
    Vande(r)bunk shapes in digital clouds.
