Tribal peoples of North America tell of giant hairy man-like creatures in the forests, since the beginning of time. They are depicted especially prominently in the totem poles and masks of the coastal tribes of the Pacific Northwest. The common anglicized term for this `wildman of the woods' is Sasquatch.

The North American Wildmen: The Sasquatch
Trappers' tales and newspaper accounts stretch back hundreds of years. Since the late 1950's, large footprints averaging 16.5 inches long, have been preserved as plaster casts. In addition to their size, these footprints differ from human footprints in being flatter, broader with splayed toes and indications of greater degree of midfoot flexibility — adaptations for supporting a massive 600-1000 lb. bipedal hominoid in steep uneven terrain. The absence of material culture and relatively solitary behavior suggest a large species of ape or relict early hominin such as the paranthropines...
Sasquatch: The Asian Connection
If the sasquatch exists, it most likely originated from a species in Asia, as did 75% of the mammals in North America. The footprints of creatures answering the description of sasquatch have been found across Asia, not randomly, but in areas of wet forests. There is a notable correlation with the past (orange) and present (red) range of the Asiatic tiger, indicating similar habitat needs in common with this species and the recognition that this relict hominoid, preferred habitat is dramatically fragmented and shrinking.
