Pretty sure they didn't just "come up with them." I grew up in McElmo Canyon, (Cortez CO) and I assure you they are real...not in the ways I've read in this discussion, but real none the less.

I lived in an isolated village in the Sahel for some years, and witnessed many things for which there is no 21st century explanation. Skinwalkers sound entirely feasible to me. I would like to know more.

Default Blackfoot encounters a witch

I am a Blackfoot from southern Alberta, Canada. I am from the Blood Reserve. We were called Blood Indians because of the color of the paint that we used on our faces and horses.It was ochre. Also, the name came from the Blood soup that we consumed. We have our own stories of supernatural things so i am familiar with the unexplained.
I was raised on the southern border of our reserve which neighbors a town called Cardston. I was fortunate enough to be raised by my grandparents who were somewhat traditional. I was also fortunate enough to have many white friends so I was in a pretty good state of balance. I learned both worlds and can navigate through both comfortably. I am university educated with a degree in kinesiology and I work on my reserve. I am 44 and this is my first long-term job on my reserve after living in Idaho, Utah and New Mexico. I have also lived in Calgary, Edmonton and on Vancouver Island in Duncan. (they have the Saskwatch as a supernatural being)
I was looking for some adventure so I joined my cousin in Albuquerque removing asbestos. We were doing some work in Crown Point at some school. We slept in an old boarding school I think. There were stories that the crew had been visited by a little boy on several occasions. ( Our crew was a mix of a couple of mexicans, a couple of Blackfoots and a couple of Navajos from the area.) The local crew members would tell us stories about the place and took us to this old two storey white house near town. They said that nobody goes there because of the spirits in the house. They went there one night when they were drinking and started to hear howling and screams so they left in a hurry.
One day, after our last job, we were heading back to Albuquerque. It was somewhere near November of '89 and it was a bit chilly. It was snowing and there was slush on the ground. There were 4 of us in the van heading home on this very slushy road. It was about 3 in the afternoon.
In the distance we saw a figure walking on the other side of the road. Suddenly this semi truck appeared coming our way and I kinda panicked for this person on the road. After the truck passed we saw that the figure was an old lady. She absolutely got covered with slush so we pulled over to give her a ride.
I got out of the van to give her a hand crossing the road and as I got to the back of the van she appeared. I almost lost my breath because I had expected to see a sweet old lady and this one was not. I don't mean to be judgemental but this lady had a very startling appearance.
She had one eye and and a very eerie appearance. She was wearing a dark dress but she was not even wet from being sprayed by the passing truck! She could not speak english but she used sign language to communicate. We tried to ask her where she was going but we really had trouble understanding what she was saying. She grunted a lot but she also smiled as well. An eerie smile with two top teeth and one on the bottom. She wanted to be dropped off at a church and she asked us if we were hungry, all in sign language and gestures. She asked if we wanted a hot dog but we just ate. We pulled over to the side of the road beside a church to drop her off. She said she lived behind the church on the mountain/hill. There were no signs of life and no tracks to where she wanted to go. We were hesitant to drop her off but did anyway. We were pleased with ourselves for helping out an old lady but were a bit shaken by her appearance.
When we arrived at the shop in Albuquerque I mentioned to the boss that we did our good deed for the day and gave an old lady a ride. Did we ever get yelled at by our boss, a Blackfoot man married to a Pueblo woman, about picking up old ladies. We laughed as he told us that we just picked up a witch. He was so serious but we kinda just laughed it off.
Nothing has happened to any of us that were there that day so far. Now, after reading the stories of this page, I am absolutely sure we picked up something supernatural. She was what I would expect a witch to look like. I really got the goose bumps when I read all the previous stories.

would like to hear more stories of your area but also tribes in British Columbia who believe in the saskwatch. We also have shape shifters that travel as dogs. Very cool culture we have! Cheers my brownskin brothers.

jfoxxtail had a great story.

I wouldn't mind hearing of one of the stories that you witnessed, that defies 21st century explanation.

JFoxxtail, thanks for sharing your story. You did catch my attention with something you said at the end of your post, you mentioned that shape shifters that travels has dogs! Do you have any detailed information on those dog walkers or shape shifters, has anyone you know seen or heard of those shifters. Would be nice to hear what you have to say about those dog shape shifters.

Regards Cyndie (uapaumikuan)

They sped up and eventual out ran the skinwalker. About a couple of weeks after the incident one of the person's died. It sounds exciting, but it's not. There are strange things that happen on the rez. I have a bunch of storys about different things. From little people to UFO crashes. I've heard a lot things.

I was wondering if there is a link with those who encounter skin walkers or shape shifters, and that person dying?
