    I stayed up last night just to listen to the show. Kathy Strain (pardon me if I’m not spelling her name correctly), has a book out and I want to read.

    But she spoke one time that some natives built a fire in front of the cave to kill the Bigfoots. Because the Bigfoots were eating humans and kidnapping woman. Those were not Bigfoots. They were red headed giants. That have been dug up all around the United States. Some of these red headed giants had double row of teeth and 6 fingers. They wore animal hide as clothing. Almost like what we think caveman look like today, except really tall. Well over 7 feet. They did not cook their food, they ate it raw. There’s many pictures of these huge hairy men in many books. I have also seen them in documentaries. They are different from Sasquatch, or what we call bigfoot today.

    But a lot of Kathy’s stories I never heard before which were very intriguing. I just wanted to point this out because it is in my native belief that are more than just Sasquatch out in the woods. A lot of animals that will baffle science today. Don’t confuse the giant ape like looking beings with the man like beings that were savages.

    Ian did a good job, even though George Knapp was suppose to do the show.

    Thank you so much Mr. Coleman for always keeping us up to date with all of these different gatherings and radio and video talk shows.

    Have a good day people. (PS) the drawings they have are awesome and some of the callers had great stories.

    @ shonuff

    There are actually different types of bigfoot in Native American lore. I think you are trying to bring a non-Native American interpretation into a Native American legend, which would be inappropriate.

    Regarding the show…

    One of the better C2C shows of late. I especially enjoyed the focus on the mythological aspect of the creature. As a lover of folklore, I was much enthused about this show.

    One of the things I was surprised was NOT covered, was bigfoot’s magical powers. Here in Oklahoma the local Native legends are that the creatures can make their eyes glow, can become invisible, and can “hypnotize” people or freeze them in their tracks, sorta like fascinate them in the old archaic meaning of putting a “spell” on them to almost paralyze witnesses.

    Another thing not touched on is that blaming of misplaced or stolen items on the creatures, much akin to fairy legends in Europe. In the Native stories here, Bigfoot would go on “raids” stealing things, just like the legends of “fairy raids”.

    I haven’t had a chance to really post too much lately; but I would like to thank Loren for keeping us informed on when this show would be aired and also rescheduled.

    Also, thank you Robb and Kathy Strain for telling me what happened last time.

    This was an absolutely great listen, very insightful!
