Bigfoot: A unique northwest mystery
By Ollie Welch
Clark County History
The Nisqually say that the Tsiatko smell, they have the voice of an owl, and they possess the power of changing so that those hearing them become demented and fall into a swoon (Gordon, p. 9).
Although most natives feared this mysterious beast, others believed that it was some type of spirit. The Upper Skagit people from Washington believed in "Kala'litabiqw," a spirit who had moss growing on his head and could cross the Cascade Mountains in a single stride (Gordon, p. 10).
