The Origins of Bigfoot

Bigfoot, a.k.a. Sasquatch, is an ape-like creature that is thought to inhabit the forests of North America. According to anthropological reports, many indigenous cultures long ago told tales of mysterious, hairy creatures that lived in the forest.

Theodore Roosevelt’s 1893 book, The Wilderness Hunter, generated more intrigue about the mystifying creature, because it included an allegedly true story about a mountain man he knew who was stalked and attacked by a foul-smelling, bipedal creature near the Idaho-Montana border.

In July 1924, The Oregonian ran an article about a violent encounter between a group of gold prospectors and a group of “ape-men” in the Mount St. Helens area of southwest Washington, less than ten miles from one of our movie’s main locations.

In 1967, the Patterson-Gimlin film was released. The grainy footage shows Bigfoot walking past Bluff Creek in Northern California, and it continues to be highly analyzed and debated.

Today, most Bigfoot sightings occur in the northwestern region of Washington, Oregon, Northern California, and British Columbia.
