Bigfoot Isn’t the Only Elusive Creature Said to Roam the Canadian Wilds (+Videos of Wendigo, Ogopogo Sightings)
Canada has its own version of the Loch Ness Monster. It also has age-old legends and modern sightings of various other creatures—creatures often terrifying not only because they are mysterious, but also because they are said to be malevolent toward humans.

As with Bigfoot (known as Sasquatch in Canada), these creatures lurk on the periphery. Some people relegate them to the realm of myth, fancy, and attention-seeking hoaxes. Others maintain a strong belief in their existence and sightings are continually reported.


‘Wendigo, wendigo, its eyes are ice and indigo …’

Perhaps foremost among these creatures is the wendigo. The wendigo goes by various names across different Native tribes, and it is also told of by Native peoples in the United States, particularly in the northern states, close to Canada. It is a ghoulish creature, man-eating.

Its skin is said to be yellowish, sallow, and taut. It is much taller than humans, 15 feet or so by some accounts, with long, yellowed fangs and a long, lolling tongue.

It is said to be a solitary creature. It’s name in various dialects means “he who lives alone,” or “evil spirit who devours mankind.” The wendigo has long been connected with insanity, particularly in people who have lost their rationality as a result of being immersed in evil occult arts.

Windigo (another variation on the spelling of wendigo) psychosis is described by MediLexicon.com as “a culture-specific syndrome of some Canadian autochthones, consisting of delusions of being transformed into a cannibalistic monster called a windigo, or wittigo. The sufferer also experiences agitation, depression, and fears about inability to control sadistic impulses.”

Excellent info Waterlily, these sorts of mysterious creatures are quite interesting. Much of what is referred to as Native American folklore actually has some basis in fact.

Let us not forget that in the Southern US and Mexico there is the legendary creature "Chupacabra".

Yes, the trick is to sort out the fact from the fiction. But the "Bigfoot" human-type creature is part of every indigenous culture, everywhere in the world, so it seems that in itself would be some sort of proof of its existence.

I agree. Consider the Yetti or abominable snowman, which is indigenous to the Himalaya Mountains.

I have not heard so much about the one as I did years ago, have you?

There was a "Yeti" spotted in Maine last month, but I would think it would be a Bigfoot or Sasquatch native to North America rather than a Yeti native to Asia.

There is a lot of Chupacabra activity ongoing though. They always say it is a dog with mange. But why don't dogs without mange act the way the chupacabra does?

you have to wonder if the giants whose bones were found up in Ohio and Minnesota, the Archaic people, are the source of these reports. By all accounts they were very tall, and were cannibals.
The Native peoples said they built huge bonfires, then went on raids, and were so horrible that the aboriginals banded together to annihilate them. Some could have escaped and went feral.

Very interesting! Maybe that is why there has been so much destruction of evidence since those mound graves were opened up... the scientists could tell that not only were the bones of giantic people, but they were a different kindof people to boot. I trust those ancient stories, especially when they are from unrelated tribes in different geographic areas.

Thanks for the insight

Cherokee lore had been reported to state that Jutaculla (alternative English spelling is Judaculla; Cherokee name is Tsul'kălû'), a slant eyed giant, dwells in the cave in Devil's Courthouse.[3] However James Mooney, the Cherokee anthropologist, 100 years earlier located Jutaculla to Tanasee Bald[4] where Haywood, Jackson, and Transylvania counties meet. Tennessee Bald is 1.5 miles southwest.[5]

Folk tales say that the devil holds court in the chambers of the cave.
