BEYOND THE FOREST

A few words of introduction…I am, in my adult life, a licenced architect (Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin, with Florida and Utah pending!), 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.

Growing up in South Dakota, I made friends with many Lakota children. 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….

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 onward, although some Encounter Reports go back further!).

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 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 Lakota, 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 Lakota.  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.

Cheers,

Field Report 06.24.2016: Walworth County


One of the enormous, deeply impressed footprints observed in the soft mud along the wooden walkway in Walworth County, where I accompanied Linda Godfrey & Jane Rodriguez.  Copyright © 2016 Sanjay R Singhal.  All rights reserved.

FIELD REPORT 06.24.2016

To open the Report, simply double-click on the words “FIELD REPORT” 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 Linda Godfrey and Jane Rodriguez, whom I accompanied to Walworth County; I am not familiar with other persons researching this area of southern Wisconsin.  There are no published reports for Green, Jefferson, Rock, or Walworth Counties on the BFRO website, [1] although two reports each for adjacent Dane and Waukesha Counties are available.[2] [3]  Nonetheless, a cursory review of same suggests considerable activity in this region.

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

  1. The numerous large, bare, human-like footprints observed in the mud;
  2. The strange, broken and snapped clump of burdock in the woods;
  3. The large pair of deeply impressed canine tracks in the mud;
  4. The series of wide, bare prints observed in the grass, exposing the ground beneath;
  5. The glimpse of movement in the trees;
  6. The dark shadow, which appeared to move first left, then right;
  7. The utter stillness and quiet, experienced throughout;
  8. The line of broken, crushed grasses leading into the belt of woods;
  9. The pair of slanted branches, observed nearby;
  10. The sound of something moving in the belt of woods;
  11. Linda and Jane’s observation of something large and reddish-brown, emerging from the woods;
  12. The same observation, of it ducking down in the tall grasses;
  13. Jane’s observation of something standing motionless in the belt of woods;
  14. My observation of something rust-coloured, which appeared and then disappeared;
  15. The enormous bang, which echoed all around us;
  16. The patch of grass, moving without any wind.

These behaviours, and the history of my own experiences, may be considered sufficient to suggest the presence of EC [4] in Walworth County in the summer of 2016.

A number of subjective events also 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.
