Family Witness Bigfoot in Alaska, Is it the Kushtaka?

The Kushtaka is normally found in the areas of  Kasigluk
The Alaskan news source, "The Delta Discovery" reports a story about a mother and two sons witnessing a Bigfoot. Most Bigfoot sightingings in Alaska are recorded in the southern region. This report in Kasigluk is no different, in fact this is the region where most of the Tlingit Indians have seen Kushtaka. Alaska has multiple names for Bigfoot, besides Kushtaka, The Den'aina Indians of South central have Nant'ina and the Eskimos of southwest Alaska call it "Urayuli" or "Hairy man."

Sketch of Bigfoot witnessed in Alaska.
Read the encounter reported by The Delta Discovery below:

 family out egg hunting last spring near their village of Kasigluk came upon an incredible sight – a large, dark, hairy creature walking upright was heading towards them.
They – two teenaged brothers and their mom - were on the outskirts of the village riding their 4-wheeler when they saw it. It was approximately around 3pm, and the weather was beautiful, although slightly cloudy. School was out for the summer and the date was May
29th, 2012.

Could it have been the elusive Bigfoot?
“We came across it by the lagoon here in Kasigluk,” said one the eyewitnesses. “It was back there southeast of Fox Lake.”

While they were out that day, the three family members saw other people who coming home from egg hunting. So at first they thought the creature was a person.

“After it passed, we looked at each other and thought, ‘we just saw Bigfoot’,” the eyewitness said.

The creature was very tall and dark. Its long arms hung below its knees. It was approximately 75 yards away. The family watched it for about 2 minutes.

“It was walking towards us and then once it saw us it turned and started going to the other side of the hill,” said the witness.

When it disappeared into the bushes, the family headed towards where they last saw it but it was nowhere to be seen.

They didn’t hear about anyone else seeing the mysterious creature.

The following is the firsthand account about the sighting written by the mother of the two boys, one of the eyewitnesses.

“I wanted to go egg hunting, but didn’t want to go alone so I had my two sons follow me since I didn’t want to go alone. My oldest son said he knew of a place where we could go check so off we went towards the lagoon where there is flat land to the east.

“Upon reaching the lagoon my older son got off the four wheeler and ran off to see if anybody was in that area. He ran to the edge of the hill and soon ran back saying that somebody was already there. So we decided to go check somewhere else when that “somebody” started running at an incredible amount of speed. No human person would have gone from down there by that flat land to already towards us up the hill.

“That “somebody” was all black from top to bottom, kind of hunchbacked, like it had no neck and its head was cone-shaped. Its long arms went past its knees and it was incredibly tall.

“At first we all asked each other, “Who is that?” Then after about 10 seconds as it was walking with long strides it would occasionally look towards us. The way it walked was fast and no human could cover that amount of tundra in the same amount of time.

I asked, “WHAT is that?”

“All that time we were awestruck and dumbfounded to what we were witnessing. Then as it was going to disappear from our view finally I said, “I think we just saw Bigfoot!” As it passed in our full view it had covered the whole entire hill in a matter of about a minute. It seemed to be just walking but with big strides.

“We went up to the top of the hill but we didn’t see it anywhere so we went straight home feeling kind of excited.

“That’s my account. It looked exactly like the Patterson footage of Bigfoot if you’ve ever seen it.”

Big Foot or Hairy Man sightings are not unheard of in the Yukon Kuskokwim delta region. Last summer there were reports of a number of sightings in the Johnson River area and other locations.

  1. Wow. Very interesting Guy! I enjoy reading/researching all accounts/sightings from the extreme north. It's very intriguing to notice different aspects/characteristics sometimes mentioned.

  2. They must be reproducing, got a young one living down at the river behind my house. Can't tell you were I live because you crazy people will come and scare it off.

    1. yeah....ok.

    2. Stereotyping in general is sad. I only hope to see a day,when there is no drama,sarcasm,or etc because everyone is enjoying or learning about what interests them the most,to the fullest.

  3. It's hard because the sighting was so quick, also they didn't identify it as a Bigfoot at first, so that gave them only a few moments (less than a minute and for much of that they thought it was a person) to really figure out if it was a Bigfoot or not. Even the mother is speaking "I think we saw a Bigfoot!" It's an afterthought. But it's a good sighting as I think they are being honest about what they saw. Something odd, and for less than a minute. Worth noting, and not proof (yet again). This may sound silly, but what kind of eggs were they hunting? It sounds quite interesting.

    1. In parts of Alaska, natives collect waterfowl eggs for food usually in late spring so no snow would be on the ground

  4. Also was there snow on the ground? I'm part of the snow print group here in New Hampshire. We try to follow footprints and have had some really odd ones. A Bigfoot will leave tracks in the snow. If the Bigfoot is "gone" follow the tracks! (At least we are trying to)

  5. Hi! It's hard to come by experienced people on this subject, but it seems like you know what you're talking about. Thank you for sharing.
