Wendigo! Learn something new every day.
[link to allthatsinteresting.com (secure)]

As the tale goes, the wendigo was once a lost hunter. During a brutally cold winter, this man’s intense hunger drove him to cannibalism. After feasting on another human’s flesh, he transformed into a crazed man-beast, roaming the forest in search of more people to eat.
The story of the wendigo (sometimes spelled windigo or windago) comes from Algonquian Native American folklore, and the exact details vary depending on who you ask. Some people who have claimed to encounter the beast say it’s a relative of Bigfoot. But other reports compare the wendigo to a werewolf instead.


Never had heard of it, but was looking through Imgur and ran across a clip with the name in the title.

Humans and cannibalism seem to have a long history.

It's been the basis for several Hollywood movies.

One of my favorites is Ravenous.

I’m so going to try and build one and put it out in the woods out near our driveway.

Rig up some kinda flickering light source that randomly comes on.

Not heard of that.

Is it a NZ thing?

Some very interesting places there.

One in particular on the South Island near Fox Glacier was nice and creep inducing.

Turned down the wrong road late and night and all three of us in the camper van got a serious case of the heebee jeebees.

Found out later that the local Maori folks thought it was inhabited by evil spirits.

Sorry, my bad, it's witiko, the cree version of the wendigo. Lol NZ forests at night are spooky as fuck , the Maori have legends, such as the turehu, patupaiarehe, little white folk that lure you to your death, cannabalistic in nature also, cannabalism was a big thing here, tribal warfare, the vanquished banquet. We even have our version of bigfoot, lol Coromandel man

Re: Wendigo! Learn something new every day.
I spent a night up at Fox glacier, freaky place, the kea bird is fascinating, it's rumoured there is a thousands of years old stone city in the far north, waipoua forest, it's also possible the Phoenician were here pre Taupo eruption, 600 year before the Maori, it's also possible the Chinese mined iron here pre 1400s

It’s been a long time since my now wife and I were there, but I’ll always have a special place in my heart for New Zealand.

So many amazing locations, and some really awesome people.

Still wear my greenstone.
