Sasquatch on the Oklahoma Prairie

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on October 19th, 2007

Brian Brown has released another episode of his Bigfoot Information Project podcast interviews: Sasquatch on the Oklahoma Prairie. In this one, he talks to investigator Roger Roberts and biologist/investigator Alton Higgins regarding sasquatch encounters around a small town on an Indian reservation (including the possible videotaping of one by a casino security camera).

Previous shows have included conversations with anthropologist Kathy Strain, filmmaker Scott Herriot, and well-known sasquatch investigator Rick Noll. Download Sasquatch on the Oklahoma Prairie here or subscribe for free via iTunes.

Below is the recreation of the event for the Outdoor Life Network’s Mysterious Encounters.

    hey craig this is great new update article about the oklahoma sasquatch creature, very interesting. thanks bill green 🙂

  2. swnoel responds:

    “The tribe destroyed the video”? Why would anyone in their right mind destroy evidence of this magnitude? Maybe there really wasn’t a video of a sasquash but merely an advertising stunt to advertise the casino.

  3. stooge75 responds:

    Of course it was destroyed. Then again maybe the tribal owners of the casino don’t want to encourage the search. Interesting.

  4. Daryl Colyer responds:

    I appreciate the courage of my one of my best friends, Alton Higgins, to finally go public with his experience; he has long been reticent about it, perhaps even uncomfortable. I also know Roger Roberts (albeit to a lesser degree) and know of his unimpeachable character.

    I will say this about Alton, as anyone who halfway knows him will certainly agree: his character and integrity is above reproach; he is rock-solid, with high morals, high standards in everything and is a very sharp guy.

    I thought the podcast was outstanding; it seemed rather NPR-ish in quality and tone. Great job, Brian Brown.

  5. MattBille responds:

    Intriguing, but I must voice a caution: “Possible taping” or a report of a taping is not evidence: only a tape is.

  6. Bob Michaels responds:

    Just another Hoax.

  7. DARHOP responds:

    The tribe obviously doesn’t want anything to happen to these creatures. We have to remember these animals are sacred to allot of tribes. Why show something to the world that could possibly hurt the existence of such a sacred animal. These tribes have no reason to prove these animals exist. Other than maybe getting them protected. And let’s face it, Native Americans haven’t really been treated to well by the white man. So I’m sure they would have no faith in us protecting the Big Ones. Probably quite the opposite. They know what will happen if one is captured, and it will not be a good outcome. So, get rid of the tape!

    As much as we all would like to see the tape. It still wouldn’t prove anything no matter how good the video is. So in hopes of protecting the Big Ones, I personally have no problem with them destroying the tape. I’m sure it would get picked apart here. Besides, one of these days. Someone is gonna get some very good video or photos. I mean close up shots, of the face even. And with any luck, maybe, just maybe, it will be me. Still wouldn’t prove anything though.

  8. Sassafrasquatch responds:

    Hoax or not – You must take into consideration that a good number of Native American tribes consider Bigfoot to be a powerful creature that has great spiritual powers. Depending on the tribe, circumstances and timing of the sighting of one of these creatures, all determine if Sasquatch is bringing a good or bad omen, a warning or blessing. To be cautious they may have destroyed the tape as to not get on the bad side of the creature, or even take the chance of getting on it’s bad side considering it appeared at a location that is going to bring some amount of wealth to the tribe. Better to be safe than sorry, right?

    Maybe the success or failure of the casino will tell what this sighting may have meant?

  9. Ole Bub responds:

    Good afternoon Cryptos…

    Alton and I had lunch about a year ago in OKC. He is engaging, honest and interesting, with an insatiable appetite for the hottest salsa the restaurant could offer. The fumes singed ole bub’s eyebrows.

    He gave me a notebook powerpoint presentation of his image analysis. I glanced around, everyone in the restaurant was riveted to his lecture.

    I’m proud to call Alton an acquaintance, and look forward to visiting with him at Jefferson.

    Most Native American tribal elders have great respect for the “Shadow People”. We should too…JMHO

    live and let live…

    Native people don’t need evidence of the “creature”. If by now you can’t or won’t understand the mindset of the Native Peoples you never will.

    As for the tape, well that’s their property to do with as they wish. I don’t see that any casino needs to advertise bigfoot to gain more gamblers.

    Just another Hoax.

    Alright, not trying to start a flame war here, but enough is enough.
    What are you basing this on??
    What is a hoax?
    The video shown clearly say “reconstruction”?
    Are you calling the reported sightings a hoax?

    I have noticed that your posts are usually one-liners providing a “definitive answer” to whatever the topic might be.
    I have also noticed that you are virtually always spectacularly wrong.
    (ie: a rotting whale was “an extant giant turtle”.

    We have at least one “bigfoot expert” here (Daryl Colyer) who knows the man, and says his character is above reproach.
    Another frequent contributor “Ole Bub” says he knows the man personally as well.
    Who are you to call him a liar??
    If you are calling this gentleman a hoaxer, please explain why and how he did it.
    Also, since you are apparently an expert, please tell us your credentials.


  12. old crow responds:

    How can it be a hoax? I don’t recall the tribe coming forward to anyone saying here is a bona fide big foot.
    It appears non tribal members are the ones saying there was a tape, there was footage. Now the mean Indians destroyed the tape. Which by the way is the property of the tribe. What is the hoax here? The tape containing the big foot or the destroyed tape.

  13. Alton Higgins responds:

    Perhaps if those with strong opinions regarding the likelihood of a hoax would listen to Brian Brown’s BIPcast some of their opinions might change. Brian addressed some of these kinds of concerns at length.

    As for the “reconstruction” of the security camera video, I think the producers did a great job, other than the fact that the graphics look like they were created by a first-grader, the creature is walking in the wrong direction, there was no snow, there was no tree to walk behind, the field behind the casino did not have two huge lights illuminating the area, the fence was not directly behind the grease trap, and the tape had no sound. 🙂

  14. Ole Bub responds:

    Agreed Alton, thank you…JMHO

    I listened to the podcast with great interest. I found your synopsis to be thorough and comprehensive. On the prairie, protein is where you find it.

    Nice to hear Roger Roberts perspective and recollections. His comments regarding the Native American perception of these creatures as another “tribe”, is a sentiment we often hear in Eastern Oklahoma, parapharsing “it’s the whites who doubt their existence”.

    Once again Brian does a masterful job weaving a tapestry of common sense and thoughtful questions with interest rather than interrogation. Nice job Bipto.

    Much obliged Craig for bringing this podcast to Cryptomundo. Well done.

    live and let live…

  15. arbigfoothunter responds:

    I agree totally with Dbard and most of the other comments regarding the original video. We know how most Indian tribes feel about the sacredness of the Sasquatch and yes, what hoax is BMichaels talking about this time? I was waiting for a reply from him, but possibly Dbard has touched on a nerve. Personally, I am patiently awaiting word from the BFRO or someone else about the Jacobs video in Pennsylvania. After a small rash of faked videos and/or photos in the past few months, we true cryptos are deserving and past due of a true Bigfoot video. While some say: It won’t prove anything, I think we will be able to “chalk up another” for us, the faithful, as WE know the animals are out there.
