Indians Ask Archaeologist to Report Bigfoot Sightings Only to Them

Robert Muckle with Fake Bigfoot Mandible
"I have heard of at least one Indigenous group that requires archaeologists working within their territories to report any Bigfoot sightings to the Indigenous group and thereafter maintain confidentiality." -- Archaeologist, Robert Muckle

Archaeologists spend a lot of time in ingeniousness territories, they are digging for artifacts of ancient humans. Do the indigenous people have an unwritten "agreement" with some archaeologists?

 Is  In an article at Arthroplogy News, Robert Muckle, an archaeology author, starts to make the argument, "Archaeologists have a long history of being largely silent on Bigfoot, leaving it to their colleagues in biological anthropology and cultural anthropology to comment on almost anything related to its purported existence."

Mr. Muckle continues the line of thought by offering, "Archaeologists too can make useful contributions to the science or pseudoscience of Bigfoot and for those so inclined the timing is good to start now."

Archaeology? The study of human activity in the past having a role in Bigfoot research? How exciting! An idea like this coming from a respected archaeologist? It takes only 5 more paragraphs for Mr. Muckle to take back his words and disappoint us.

However there is an interesting gem in the article. It is the quote above, "I have heard of at least one Indigenous group that requires archaeologists working within their territories to report any Bigfoot sightings to the Indigenous group and thereafter maintain confidentiality." 

This is very interesting that at least one group of Indians would not only require archaeologist to report sightings, but also keep mum on them too.

And for the record, Bigfoot Lunch Club can make an argument for Bigfoot archaeology. Kathy Strain is a trained archaeologist who has brought the "Bigfoot Family" cave pictographs of Painted Rock.

Below are the pictographs shared by Kathy Strain. The pictographs include paintings of a male, female, and child Bigfoot.

  1. As a Native Amercican, I am far removed from my culture and heritage. I wish I could weigh in on this!

  2. I wonder if the lines coming from the eyes in the upper right hand photo are supposed to represent eyeshine?
