Welcome to another Bigfoot Campfire Story. As a young heathen I was exposed to both my Irish and my Native backgrounds. I spent many summers on the Cherokee Reservation with family members from nearly the time I can remember. Even back in the early 70's many tribal ways were still followed and the oral history was passed on at almost every meal. We were sitting around a campfire much like this one when my great great uncle Standing Deer told this great story.
Many moons ago before the white man came, our dealings with Hairy Man were much different than they are now. My grandfathers grandfather said that on ceremony nights the hairy man would come in sometimes as many as a dozen and sit on the very edges of the fire light and watch the tribe. As the warriors would dance and drum as they circled the fire the Hairy Man would grunt and drum on the ground to the beat as almost chanting. (click the video for more)
