SC EP:877 This Thing Bent Down Over My Tent

Duane writes “I am a Tribal member with the Hoopa Valley Tribe and grew up here all my life, my homes about 20 miles from where the Patterson film was shot at Bluff Creek, during the summer of 2018 me a friend and her family decided to go camping at this little campsite off the mountain road of Bald hill.”

Spoke to the witness he said his grandmother was a medicine woman and had warned him not to go into this area after dark. The witness will be sharing the Hoopa Valley Tribe’s beliefs on these creatures. He also discusses the canine creature known as Dogman but they have a different name for it.

    fabulous episode. Wes used skilled sensitivity when asking all those great questions to the guest . Fascinating hearing from the guest about his families historical traditions and beliefs. Brilliant episode

    Can’t wait to listen to this episode. I very briefly visited the Hoopa reservation three years ago. Didn’t see any cryptids, but it sure was beautiful!

    Happy Friday everyone here. Been looking fwd to this episode all day. Now I’m going to relax and listen to the best podcast out there. Thank you SC & Wes. Here we goooooooooooo!!!!!!!

    Can’t wait to listen. Not knowing tonight’s episode would have a guest from the Hoopa Reservation, I handed my mom The Hoopa Project book by David Paulides while I fixed dinner earlier this evening. How uncanny. The book is a compilation of sworn affidavits outlining sasquatch sightings. The eyewitnesses are so down to earth and honest, just like Duane. 👍 thank you, Wes!! Have a nice week everyone!!

    I really appreciate hearing Native American and First Nations people’s views on these creatures, as I believe they have had the most experience with them. Dogman on the other hand, I believe that Europeans have encountered these creatures in both the Old and New World, they could be a result of dark, evil, practices.

    What a great episode. I think the insights and past Native American stories are so interesting. Thanks Dwayne and Wes for such an interesting conversation!

    If Duane reads the comments, I’d like to ask him 1 thing. As best he can, write down and record all his Native beliefs. Include any Native words too. Another generation goes by without recording all that stuff and it can vanish forever. Great show again.

    I want to thank you Duane for the great privalege you have given to us all for sharing your tribal knowledge and your Grandma’s wisdom. I am very grateful, thank you.

    Wes, great show. So many excellent questions. 877 episodes in and it still feels this fresh, exciting and new.

    It’s not so much human encroachment; although that does exist- the current climate changes (caused mostly by a collective human action(s) over almost 200 years) are forcing wildlife and humans to die or leave areas that are burning and have burned, areas that have flooded and continue to flood . As climate change ramps up more and more criptids and otherworldly entities will be seen and experienced more and more. Climate change has thrown a wrench into the gears that keep the natural balance and unfortunately that “restart button” has been pushed awhile ago and we are experiencing the consequence of that action. There is no turning back. We must learn to live together as one species or we will kill each other off. History tells us this over and over. You think humans would get it by now! Not as a collective group. There is hope until no one exists for hope to be present. Then…

    Wow, I didn’t see this one coming! Bravo Wes, great info and questions…great experiences and info from Duane. I’ve listened to every SC episode and this one single episode matches the closest to all my many personal experiences and the conclusions I’ve drawn so far, (and without myself having the luxury of inside family knowledge by my living relatives knowing Native American medicine)…what Duane is saying makes total sense to me. I’ve seen the large creature come out from a tree too small for it to fit behind…the X’s, the sounds, appearing like smoke, the tribute…all of it. I’m sure I’ll have to listen to this one several more times.
    I just wanted to add that the car without wheels sounds like how an early Native Americans legend that was passed down generations would eventually use that terminology to describe a UFO…but it’s just a hunch. More and more I’m convinced that most cryptid, alien and paranormal events are possibly linked.

    I agree with Wes, Gifting is playing with fire, I dont exspect anyone to believe me, But a warning,
    My encounters was 65 miles from my home, Since then they have showed up at my home,
    Banged on my bedroom window once, walked up to my bedroom window, whistled in my back yard at me,
    Walked outside one morning to complete silence, No frogs crickets ect, I also caught a glimpse of something running around
    the corner of my home,,, My advice is dont poke the bear,,, But these creatures are not a normal earthly animal

    well wess , That should help you back out of the rabbits hole that should clear a lot of things up 😳,, sweet Jesus now I know what you mean the more you learn the more complex this phenomenon culture creature whatever you wanna call it becomes, i’m thinking of you brother how do you come back to reality after seven 800 shows of things like this take care of yourself Wes a lot of people could lose it after cooking in your soup, continuously I’m reaching back you’re close to 1000 shows brother, does West live there anymore, Please protect yourself mentally spiritually and neurologically ,, don’t let this deterior you from our father son and holy spirit of Jesus Christ

    Great show as always! Fascinating tribal takes on these phenomena. So I’m in southern nh, and though we are not far from what you would call civilization, I’ve seen and heard some things. There is a couple hundred acres of forest and swamp behind us. Not far back of our property I found this:
    The sticks were stuck in so deeply into the root ball of the fallen tree that they were hard to remove. The ones that are no longer parallel were me trying to pull them out. I have no idea why a human would do it in these woods. If it was the start of some kind of human art project, it’s now been there for 6 weeks without any more enhancement. Has anyone else seen this sort of thing?
