S.E. Oklahoma Field Expeditions Have Commenced

There has been a lot of request for Bigfoot Expeditions. Several members of the Honobia Bigfoot Conference staff have come together and are in the beginning stages of planning field expeditions within the Honobia area. (Few expeditions maybe located in other locations throughout SE Oklahoma) There are a few private expeditions scheduled starting in April to determine if these specific locations are suitable for future expeditions. Few members of the expedition staff have been engaged in planning, conducting, and leading field expeditions for the past 8 years. The cost has yet to be determined, however the cost will be affordable. Below is a list of weekends that are currently open for field expeditions for the next few months. If you have a small group (5-8 people) and you find one of these weekends that best suit you and your group contact the expedition coordinator below and schedule your expedition.

Majority of field expeditions will be conducted within the Honobia or SE Oklahoma area. If you have a group of people and a location near you that you find the best opportunity to host a expedition then we can move our expedition staff to you (Expedition fees will be discussed)

Who can attend?
Adults at any age (Just remember we will be walking in the mountains at night and sometimes in very poor lighting conditions) Safety is a priority.
Youth ages, anyone over 16 yrs (any youth under 18 yrs must be accompanied by adult)

How long is the expedition?
Typically you arrive on a Friday morning. (You can arrive Thursday night)  Stay Friday night, all day Saturday, Saturday night, and depart on Sunday mid-day.

What we be doing on the expedition?
Typical expedition is full of things to do, along with some periods of rest and relaxation. During the day, you will learn what to look for and how to identify physical evidence related to the identification, collection, and preservation of evidence related to Sasquatch research. You will learn how to identify Sasquatch activity/presence in a particular area. You will also learn how to utilize the proper observation skills both in daylight and low light environments that best give you the opportunity to identify possible Sasquatch(s) moving about in the forest. You will be taught how to properly use optics and military grade night vision equipment. Dinner meals are provided, morning and noon meals are left open to the expedition attendee. During the night time the expedition will move to locations to conduct surveillance methods in the attempt to observe Sasquatch activity in the areas. Additional information please contact (see below for contact information)

Interview with a Tribal Elder (Oklahoma) #2015-02

This particular interview was conducted in the early fall of 2012. The Tribal Elder lives in western Oklahoma, however resides in SE Oklahoma. He was introduced to one of our conference staff/investigators just after the 2011 Honobia Bigfoot Conference. The interview took just over a  year to plan due to the Tribal Elder's reluctance to talk to any about Bigfoot he didn't know personally. Names and locations have been changed to protect the privacy of the Tribal Elder and others related to these events.

Article S-OK #2015-02

Location- SE Oklahoma near Coal County

Time: Late Afternoon (November)

Purpose of interview: This particular Tribal Elder was put in contact with a investigative member of the Honobia Bigfoot Conference staff for the sole reason for the Elder to share his knowledge of the Sasquatch. Interview as follows:

Investigator: It is great to meet your Sir and my name is (********) and I understand you have some knowledge that you have been holding onto for many years. (Respect offering was handed to the elder, small bag of tobacco).    

Elder: Good morning, (********) and yes I was told you had respect to the people and you were someone I could trust. What is this? (look at the small bag)

Investigator: I was raised this way, this is a offering of my gratitude and respect.

Elder: (He looked at he bag and back at me)....said I am very touched, (took the small bag and put it in his shirt pocket)...paused...what would you like to know.

Investigator: I was raised around a lot of different type of people, mainly tribal family's...I am from (*******) Oklahoma and spent the last 8 years learning all I can about the Tall People, that is what I call them. I have heard from many different tribal communities and I am always interested in what others say or feel about the Tall People.

Elder: You are correct that you call them Tall People. I was always told they are a people. Some of my elders from many years ago, called them "The People from the Beginning". They are very old and some people do not understand their position within our ring of life.

Investigator: "Ring of Life", I have heard this, something like a "Circle of Life" the "Medicine Wheel"

Elder: Yes, you understand, the circle of a tribe and family is always connected, it is continuous, but you understand this term?

Investigator: Yes sir, I do, it was described to me by a friends grandfather back when I was very young and I have only heard it used few times by some elders years back.

Elder: That is the problem, this younger generation has no idea of the importance of our way of life and that tradition is being wasted away and the knowledge of our traditions, language, and even the simple way to stay in the "ring of life" is going to be lost soon.

Investigator: Everyone is fascinated by Bigfoot and the whole atmosphere around the search and the science of trying to prove their existence. What is your thoughts of what you know or what you think about trying to prove they are real to the world?

Elder: First let me tell you what I know and I will answer that, it may help you when I answer your question. First you must understand, the knowledge that some of my grandfathers related to Bigfoot or the Heavens is being lost and drifting away, no one has respect for the true knowledge, all people want is something they can use to make a movie or a million dollars off some old Indian that said this is who it was or something like that. My grandfather said that the Sasquatch is only the beginning of this, he called them "The People from the Beginning", I think he called them this because he was relating them to the beginning of time, the beginning of the Red Man, the Indian.
The Great Creator (pointing towards the sky with his finger) God created man and woman, he also had created someone to watch out over us, after the flood, you know the Bible correct?

Investigator: Yes sir I do.

Elder:.........these people (Sasquatch) are not animals to be treated as wild game or hunted, they are living creations of God's most elected, they have a purpose beyond our minds, they are feared because of their abilities and there size, they are what you would called "Giants of the Land" as it is often described in the Bible to some degree. But we have gotten away from tradition and gotten into this TV land of mystery and UFOs and Ghost hunting.

Investigator: I have been around different Bigfoot researchers and even been around some people that try and connect Bigfoot to UFOs. everyone is trying to make millions off the Bigfoot.

Elder:...(held up his hand) let me ask you, what do you think they are?

Investigator: I do believe they are older than we think, I think they were created by God and I do not think they are a monkey or great ape. I think they are here on earth for a reason we can not comprehend as humans, we do not understand these things because we are wrapped up in video games, cell phones and modern daily life to sit and realize our true existence.

Elder:...(he smiled) and pointed at are correct. To answer your first question...right now, our world is not ready to understand Bigfoot, they want to prove it like that lake monster, or UFOs and stuff, what people are not ready for is the truth, see that is what keeps our country from really growing, we have to many secrets and to many fake stories about or history. The Bigfoot is something that should not be chased or hunted. They have way they can protect themselves and people are chasing something that can really harm them, I am not saying break their arm, I am saying they can put the fear of God into you that you will have PTSD.

Investigator: I have talked with many witnesses and heard stories of people never stepping foot into the woods after their experience.

Elder: I know you have seen them, have you ever felt scared or had fear around them?

Investigator: Once I can remember that I was not welcomed and had the urgency to leave, most other times I always have a good experience.

Elder: I understand, most of the time you go to a place and they are already there or it doesn't take long for them to show up?

Investigator: Yes, that is true, I even went out of state to a location I never had been in my life and they showed up in the woods, I think I counted 3-4 dark figures with intense eye shine and several whoops at close range.

Elder: They trust someone like you, see they know your heart and your intentions they know who they want to be around. I can see it in your eyes you have a respect for them and for the understanding of life that some people will never grasp.

Investigator: What is your thoughts on their actual age and how long they live?

Elder: My grandfather and my uncle described one they use to see out near (*****) Western Oklahoma, they described the scar on its face and the way the color of his hair was, that was more than 65 years ago, and at that time the Bigfoot had been seen by other people prior to that, well it was just seen by two other elders about 40 miles from my grandfather's place two years ago. It is said this big male, maybe 10ft tall has been around our area for more than 80 years. I understand them to live more than 120 years. They don't have our cancer or our fast food, their way of life is the old way of life, their only danger and threat to life is us.

Investigator: I understand that, everyone is threatened by us.

Elder: Your conference is a great thing educated the people, but leave the science and TV to the people in California, do as you have been, learn and help people understand that they are to be left alone and respected, not to be hunted. We will talk more one day, thank you for the gift son (he pointed at his pocket)  

Conclusion: There are a lot of similar things this particular elder said and referred to. It is usually the same with a lot of people. They are to be left alone and respected, there is more to learn, the Tribal Elders of our tribes have knowledge that is not being passed on, I am trying to make it a mission to save the knowledge about the Sasquatch. I know three different tribal communities that have Sasquatch activity near them, the newer age of tribal youth have no interest in the "old ways" they are stuck on Ipods and Facebook. Through various areas of the Sasquatch Genome Project (DNA) there has been several Tribal Elders consulted about there knowledge of the Sasquatch, it seems from all over North America the word is the same, they are a type of People and they were created by the same God that created us. Stay tuned for more interviews.

Interview with a Tribal Elder (SE Oklahoma) #2015-01

This year (2015) we will start a new article called "Sit Down with an Elder" few of our staff have tribal affiliations with two tribal nations within Oklahoma. They have over the last few years conducted "sit downs" interviews with tribal elders from all over Oklahoma. Few have been no more than a friendly exchange of stories that have led to some rather productive sighting investigations in and around tribal property throughout the State of Oklahoma. This first article is about a Tribal Elder that was recently interviewed by one of our staff members just few weeks ago. Certain portions of the names, locations, and descriptions are changed or left out due to the respect and privacy of land owners as well as the request of the Tribal Elder's.

Article SE-OK #2015-01

Location- SE Oklahoma near Atoka County

Time: Late Afternoon (February)

Purpose of interview: This particular Tribal Elder was put in contact with a investigative member of the Honobia Bigfoot Conference staff for the sole reason for the Elder to pass on information about on-going Sasquatch activity at a rural home near far North-Western Pushmataha County/Atoka County Line. Interview as follows:

Investigator: What was your reason to contact me reference these activities at the "______" residence?

Elder: I visited the Honobia Bigfoot Festival few years ago and I observed you speak and I know you are very familiar with the Sasquatch. I wanted you and your team to understand more of what is really going on in our woods. Maybe your already know, maybe you don't.

Investigator: Sir, I am very deeply moved with your confidence in me and allowing me to listen to your wisdom on this matter, thank you and Yakoke. (I gave my respect offering, it is always a tradition that when you visit an Tribal Elder to bring a offering, such as tobacco or fruit/vegetables basket of something similar to show respect your respect to them allowing you to be there)

Elder: I grew up here in SE Oklahoma, as I was a child I was told of many legends of our tribe. There are so many people just ignore and see as a fantasy in the Indian's mind. See people think the old Indians are made up of living in the past and not in touch with today's reality. Our history is what brought us here and our history is what made us who we are. Legends or made up spirit mombo jumbo what ever they want to call it is real. The "spirit walkers" the "shiftshapers" "shadow people" and the "bigfoot" as the TV calls Sasquatch.

Investigator: I see the people's faces when I have talked about the spiritual aspects of our world that has a connection to the Sasquatch and their face tell me, they are just not interested or they think this is what I read in a book or heard a Elder tell me sitting at a campfire while we drum and sing. People sometimes just think we make all this stuff up to sale tickets to our conference or to sale a book.

Elder:(He raised his hand as if for me to stop) They will never understand unless they have seen it, or have the experience you and I have had. See people are so caught up in technology and what is going on in China or Russia, they hardly care what goes on in our own backyards.

Investigator: I understand there is a family not far from here that has some really strange things going on?

Elder: Yes, they do not want anyone at there land and they do not want there names told.

Investigator: I understand.

Elder: These people are my blood (means they are relatives of the elder)The activity started back in early 1990s with strange sounds, human like screams and whistles near their home, either late in the evening or just after sunrise. The kids often describe seeing standing bears in the woods near the property fence line. The father had asked me back then one night if Bigfoot was in his neck of the woods. I told him, the Bigfoot are where ever they want to be.

Investigator: When was the first time the father actually got to see one?

Elder: It was I think either the summer or fall of 1994-95, I know it was because it was in and around the time of the Oklahoma City Bombing.

Investigator: Who all in the family has seen them?

Elder: Everyone over the years, and here just before Christmas I was there and saw one at the edge of the woods near the road. (The elder lowered his head and raised it) these things are very powerful, you see they are not from here, they are here however to help us, we are just missing the message, we are not paying attention to our world and what it means to live in and on it.

Investigator: You mean ignore the whole reason why God put us on this earth? Why the Bigfoot are even here and why they appear to certain people?

Elder: Yes, you know, you and few others know the why and you have tried to explain it to people, but they just turn around and laugh as they walk away thinking your just a "Indian wanabe" and your are caught up in the Bigfoot/Redman Indian dreams.

Investigator: Yes I have heard some rather funny labels and nicknames given to me over the years. But, go on please....

Elder: See the Tall People as you have been heard to say, is rather a proper name, most people see them as a monkey or missing link, they are a tribe of people, they have their own rituals, their own customs, they have even their own way they bury their dead. That is a culture, a tribe. I heard one of our own Elders say way back when I was a kid that the "tree people" as he called them were not here to scare us they are here to watch over us. They are much like us, they have similar problems as we do, but they will not help us because we have walked away from our own path. Do you understand?

Investigator: Yes Sir, we as a people have taken the meaning of "walking the path" the "red road" and taking everything for granted and not paying attention to what the Creator-God has done for us, I believe that the "Sasquatch" are a creations such as we are and that they have a purpose and we have a purpose but our co-purpose have gone different directions. I understand that their are references in the Bible about Sasquatch type-looking creatures, but no mention of the real identification. People laugh at the implications and really try and take a scientific approach to their existence.

Elder: We will talk about the Bible and why they are created another time, to much to tell you here and now. The people living at this property have their hands full with the whole thing that the Sasquatch that moves about in these mountains, you see the Kiamichi and whole area of Oklahoma (pointing over his head and making a circle with his finger) are home to the Sasquatch and have been before we lived here. The family has seen so much of them and one night back, oh, maybe 5-6 years ago saw a very large one, they nicknamed "grandpa" he moved slow and slumped over, they said he was maybe about 9-10ft tall, they saw two different size females, their bodies are similar to ours, but just with more hair, they saw small ones like small children maybe 6-7 years old, and heard a dog bark and some of them turn around looking towards the ground clapping their hands as if how we do it when our family dog is walking with us in the woods. This time of day was just after sundown and it was still little light to barley see them in the woods, they are maybe 20-30 yards back just inside the woods near the family home. Their dog was tied up in the back yard and was barking crazy and trying to pull the pole down it was tied too. They said they watched them walk past, and disappear out of sight within few seconds.

Investigator: Could they hear them talking, or chatter?

Elder: One of the kids said they thought they heard some type of Spanish or French, their dog was barking so much they could barley hear them, but they said they could hear another dog barking from the direction of the Sasquatch in the woods.

Investigator: Interesting I have heard of reports of dogs being seen with Sasquatch.

Elder:(He laughs) Yes remember they have same feelings we do, they want companionship as we do, the dog is perfect, it has no video games and no TV, it is there for your love and friendship, see what I mean about us humans?

Investigator: Yes, it is perfectly said, we pay attention to our technology more than we pay attention to our friendship with each other and or animals that call us family.

Elder: I must run, but I will tell you this so you can think on it until the next time we talk, look at our lives how they are now, how did we live back then without TV and video games, what did we do then to survive, have we given up our way of life for quick pleasure or easy living. Next time we visit I will tell you why most people will never say they saw a Bigfoot, they are scared at what people will say to them. (He turned and walked away)

Conclusion: This "sit-down" was scheduled by someone that knew the elder and the investigator. The second interview was conducted just few days to this posting, it will be posted on this blog soon. More interviews will be posted in the future, and remember our Honobia Bigfoot Conference dates are October 2nd and 3rd 2015.
