List of Indian Names for Bigfoot - St. Clair County Bigfoot
The following is a compilation of the many Indian names for the creature known through out the USA and Canada as BIGFOOT.I find it very interesting that so many Tribes through both countries have so many different names for these creatures.As we go through all these different names we will learn there meanings as well.According to Indian folklore the bigfoot or Sasquatch has many different names,dating back to pre-colonial times.The following is a list of these names, if these names are correct and the history of this creature is correct then he is in my book a LIVING LEGEND.
