A Montana woman describes Sasquatch encounters by friends on the Crow Nation Reservation, her experience with an invisible being, and Irish Fae Folk legends that she heard while growing up.
"My story comes from the Crow Indian Reservation of Montana. I was dating a Crow Tribal man at the time. I'm not sure how the subject came up but he shared several experiences with me about his and his family's encounters with the Sasquatch people.
When he and his brothers were little they were playing in the woods when they saw some bushes rustling. They thought it was probably a skunk or raccoon in the brush and they started throwing rocks at it. He said suddenly an enormous Sasquatch stood up and yelled at them. It chased them and they ran home as fast as they could. Looking back as an adult he said it could have caught them at any time but only seemed to want to scare them away and back home he joked it was rather like an elderly neighbor yelling at naughty kids to get off his lawn.
He described it as about 8 to 9 feet tall and had white hair. He felt it was an elder. He said there were many sightings over the years, males and females in varieties of colors, but mostly brown and black. But there are a few gray and white. A brown female would often peek around a tree and look at the laundry on the line. She seemed curious. He said a fire came through the area and burned out the food sources that they ate. They moved on and they haven't seen signs of them since.
They also have many stories of the little people and sometimes they are seen with the Sasquatch. Most of them will not talk about the little people as it's considered disrespectful and bad luck. But there are stories of the little people helping the Crow. I won't repeat those stories out of respect I have. Some of my Crow and Cheyenne friends on the reservations have had many Sasquatch sightings and UFO sightings. Maybe I can convince some of them to email you their personal experiences. I wish I had more details but that's all I can remember about his stories.
My personal story happened near Nye, Montana. My friend and I wanted to pick the perfect spot after hiking in. We saw a wooded little island in the middle of the (Stillwater) River. It was so perfect, We waded out and set up our tent in a clearing in between the trees. We had a lovely night. We chatted away, cooked some great food, and went to sleep.
I woke up in the morning to small pebbles hitting the side of the tent. Then something poked my side of the tent like a finger. It was close to the zip-up window, so I unzipped it a crack to see what was outside. There was absolutely nothing, yet something unseen continued to slowly poke the tent. I poked my finger to the outside then it would poke, then it poked the top of the tent, then I poked the top of the tent. I was not afraid, I was just more curious as to what this invisible being was. I didn't feel any malevolence from it, more like it was just playing a fun little game. This went on for several minutes and then it seemed to get bored and stopped.
When my friend woke up I told her what had happened. We looked all around camp and no clues, no prints, nothing disturbing, just a beautiful Montana morning with an odd experience. I'm Irish and grew up on myths about fairies, giants, and other Fae folk in Celtic legends. The Fae or the Unseen People can either be helpful and friendly or malicious depending on how humans interact with them by doing something that annoys them. They can be mischievous to outright dangerous.
It makes me wonder if our ancestors actually knew the truth and we turned truth into mythology as we became 'civilized.' I truly believe in the Unseen People, not just the Sasquatch people, but probably many other beings. I have no idea what was poking my tent I should have been able to see something. But all I could see was a tent fabric being poked by an invisible finger. I don't know what type of being it was but it let me know it was there without showing itself. Maybe someday we'll find the truth about the other people or the Good Folk as the Irish affectionately called them."
