SANOSTEE — There’s only one rule when it comes to hunting for Bigfoot: Don’t.
Whether you call it Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Skookums or one of the more than 60 names American Indian tribes have given the legendary beast, the harder you look, the less likely it is you’ll find him, said Frank Smith, supervisor of the Sanostee Senior Center and keeper of tales from the various recent sightings.
“If you look for it, you never see it,” Smith said Wednesday. “You have to be in the right place at the right time. Or maybe it’s the wrong place at the right time.”
The lunchtime conversation Wednesday at the senior center briefly turned to Bigfoot. The topic got smiles, chuckles and the occasional knowing smile. Many don’t believe the stories of sightings, but a few swear they have seen the creature firsthand.
They are not alone.
Mobile photo messages, emails and word-of-mouth stories have circulated the northeastern chapters of the Navajo Nation in recent months. Some photos show giant footprints in the snow or mud; others show shadowy figures at water’s edge or among trees.
All of the accounts are similar: a hulking, hairy figure is sighted standing or walking upright, leaving giant footprints in the earth and spooking animals and humans. Other reports tell more gruesome tales of slaughtered or missing livestock.
But the particulars of each story vary as much as the people who tell them.
