BEYOND THE FOREST

A few words of introduction…I am, in my adult life, a licenced architect (Illinois, Michigan, and now Wisconsin!), interior designer, photographer & emerging writer.  I’ve had experiences and encounters with the EC (see below…!) since I was a child, living in South Dakota.  At the age of seven/eight, I had my first experience with the EC, although I did not realise it at the time. It was perched in a tree in the woods behind our house, and I was not frightened of it, not at all.

Further interactions occurred in the winter of 1977, just before we moved to Illinois. Since then, I’ve had many other encounters, not all of them peaceful, not all of them dangerous, but all of them memorable. Along the way, I’ve realised my true passion within this field: the study, analysis and interpretation of EC-related branch assemblies, glyphs and stick structures. Many of these are highlighted in my Reports, categorised by location (Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, et al) and by year (mainly from 2007 onwards, although some Reports go back quite a bit further!).

Growing up in South Dakota, I made friends with many Lakota Sioux. They taught me many words; I have forgotten most of them, but two of them remained: Sinteĥlaĥla, which meant Rattlesnake, and Chiye-Tanka, which meant Big Brother.  I did not know what it meant, however; when I asked the other boys about it, they just shrugged, and said, “Big Brother; he watches us.”  Later, of course, I realised what they had meant, and I was astonished to think of the many times I had played in the woods, and I wondered….

Some years ago, I took up shamanic work, in an attempt to better comprehend my life, in a positive fashion. I was guided by a very wise Lakota Sioux shaman. When I would ask him questions, he would listen carefully, and think a long time, before he spoke.  He explained the name Chiye-Tanka.  To the Sioux, they are the Big Elder Brothers; they are not to be feared, but they are not to be approached.  Chiye-Tanka resonated with me; I thought it appropriate, and asked the shaman if I might use it. “No,” he answered, “You are not Sioux.  Big Brother is an acceptable term,” he said. “The word ‘Bigfoot’ is a white-man’s name; the concept of it is distasteful.”

I use the term Elder Children, or EC; I have used it since.  I use it in respect; I use it in remembrance; I use it in gratitude.

Field Report 07.29.2012: Area K (with Addendum)

FIELD REPORT 07.29.2012 ADDENDUM 01

To open either the Field Report or the Addendum, simply double-click on the words “FIELD REPORT” or “ADDENDUM” above, and the PDF file will open for you; you may then download the file to your own computer, or read here, at your leisure.

Substantiation of this Report may be provided by the eyewitness testimony of the family residing at Area K during the summer of 2012, [1] [2] [3] and by the reports of other visitors to the farm during this period; these included the Russian cryptozoologist Dr Igor Bourtsev, at various times and dates.

Further substantiation may also be provided by my own field work at Area K, which also began in the summer of 2011 and continued, at intervals, through the autumn of 2012, when the farm was sold. In July of that year, I spent several days at the farm, during which time an unusual number of events occurred.

By the summer of 2012, several members of the family, as well as certain and various researchers and/or enthusiasts such as myself, were uniquely aware that a significant population of EC was residing on the property; direct, visual sightings of several individuals, during this time, permitted some clarification and identification of same. Further visits to the farm during this period also evidenced increasing physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory behaviours, vis-a-vis visual sightings, auditory and olfactory experiences, and physical traces, including branch assemblies, footprints, hair samples, et al.

The combination of physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory events described in this Report are as follows:

  1. The large bare, human-like footprints observed in the heavy, wet sand of the drive;
  2. The sounds of heavy, bipaedal footsteps passing through the front woods;[4]
  3. The series of rapid wood-knocks heard from the southwest;[5]
  4. The dark shadows in the brush, observed in the front woods;[6]
  5. The continued sound of heavy, bipaedal footsteps in the front woods;
  6. The series of bird-like calls heard in the front woods.[7]

These behaviours, and the history of my own experiences, may be considered sufficient confirmation of the presence of EC [1]at Area K, in the summer of 2012.

A number of other subjective events occurred. While these cannot be considered conclusive evidence, neither should they be discounted. Although it is reasonable to review the impact of non-objective stimuli in this Report, such effects, while personally quite vivid and at times overwhelming, are nonetheless nearly impossible to substantiate with any measure of certainty.
