Keep an open mind when reading these accounts, and also remember one’s perception and memory of an event can be influenced by the emotions felt at the time of the occurrence.

NCS Case File #19: A Bark-Skinned Giant Swings from the Trees in Peguis First Nation Manitoba, Canada
Submitted by: bescaredlater
“In late summer of 2015, I was traveling with a friend. We were on our way to another friend’s house about 3 hrs away from the city. Along the way were garage sales and so we perused and ended up buying several knick-knacks. Anyhow, to get to my friend’s place we had to drive through a reservation and half way through the reservation, I saw a giant.
It was about 6:30pm, the sun was still out and this giant was swinging in the trees. Its skin looked like tree bark and it was happy. I just stared at it in disbelief for about 5 minutes. I didn’t say anything until I was out of the vehicle and in my friend’s house.
I think I didn’t say anything because in the country, I feel exposed and I feel as though everything can see me. A year later, I went to see a medicine woman in the city and I asked her about it, she told me it was a shape-shifting Sasquatch.”
