sasquatch in the news and new sighting reported


'Don't tease' the sasq'ets 
By Paul J. Henderson, The Times April 15, 2011

This is the conclusion of a two-part story on the sasquatch. See www.chilliwacktimes.com for part one.
As a seven- or eight-year-old boy, Chehalis Chief Willie Charlie was playing down by the river on the band's reserve with some cousins when they heard an eerie, high-pitched screech come from up the river. "It was a yell and my crazy cousin screamed back," Charlie told the Times in a recent interview. "Within a few minutes it was even closer and my cousin screamed back again. A few minute later it came from directly across the river." Charlie and his cousins were so terrified they ran to his grandmother's house and hid, crying under the kitchen table. "My grandmother asked us what was going on and when we told her she said 'you crazy kids you shouldn't be teasing him,'" he said. "That was the sasq'ets.'" The word "sasquatch" was coined as a mispronunciation of the Halq'emeylem word "sasq'ets" by J.W. Burns, an Indian Agent in the 1920s on the Chehalis reserve. Burns was fascinated by the stories from local First Nation about this wild man in the woods. He sent word out for hunters to come try to find the creature and in some ways is responsible for the local fascination in sasquatch. Harrison Hot Springs sasquatch research legend John Green explained that "sasquatch" and "sasq'ets" are just two out of hundreds of words that First Nations all over North America have for the cryptid. Idaho State University anthropologist Jeff Meldrum goes further, saying to the myth and story-telling of the wild manspans the globel from Russia to the Himalayas and beyond. Charlie said sasquatch stories are not new to the Cheahlis. Rock paintings of sasq'ets have been found in caves going back thousands of years. "The way my grandfather described it, sasq'ets travelled right from the Oregon coast to the Interior," he said. "We only live on his trail."

Sadly, this proved to be a stunt by the Local Newspaper to get poeple to pay for new subscriptions. Fake.
