Native Americans saw Bigfoot first. The Choctaw call this mysterious being “Shampe,” the Chinook call it “Skookum,” the Salish call it “Sasquatch” and the Navajo call it “Bekee Nitsaw.” Some tribes even have stories that are passed down from generation to generation about these big, hairy beings that live in the wilderness. To us, 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?
