Wednesday, September 3 , 2014 -
Native Americas saw Bigfoot first. The Choctaw call this mysterious creature "Shampe," the Chinook call it "Skookum," the Salish call it "Sasquatch" and the Navajo call it
"Yé' iitsoh." Some tribes even have stories that are passed down from generation to generation about these big, hairy creatures that live in the wilderness. Bigfoot is an evil being, a friend, a guardian or a supernatural being one shouldn't be worried about. What does your tribe call Bigfoot? Does this mysterious creature play a role in your culture and folklore? Have you seen Bigfoot? And what about little people? Guests include Matt Moneymaker from the show "Finding Bigfoot" and eyewitnesses Rose James (Sokokomish) and Natalie Murphy (Navajo).
