Scot Violette talks Bigfoot in Native American culture
June 26 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Scot is a cultural anthropologist specializing in Native American history and culture. While working with several tribes on digs and in the political recognition process, he was exposed to the multplicity of Bigfoot legends throughout Native American storytelling. This inspired him to put up a Facebook page and free website by which he could collect sighting reports…which led to a sighting of his own. Those first sites have now grown into SquatchAmerica, his nationwide outreach to those who have had encounters. The mission of SquatchAmerica is to use narrative research to deduce and codify the species’ behavior and movement throughout the continent.
