The controversial "Patterson-Gimlin footage" of 1967 is the standard model for Sasquatch's likeness in popular culture.

Sasquatch (also known as Bigfoot) is the name given to a mythological simian, ape, or hominoid-like creature that is said to inhabit forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest of North America. In folklore, Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. The term sasquatch is an Anglicized derivative of the Halkomelem word sásq'ets.

Scientists discount the existence of Bigfoot and consider it to be a combination of folklore, misidentification, and hoax, rather than a living animal, because of the lack of physical evidence and the large numbers of creatures that would be necessary to maintain a breeding population.

Sasquatch in The House of DanielEdit

Bigfoots or sasquatches lived in the Pacific Northwest. While most preferred to live in the woods, others, who enjoyed the trappings of society, worked and lived in towns and cities. When the House of Daniel went to Klamath Falls, Oregon, Jack Spivey encountered bigfoots for the first time, and had a conversation with a bigfoot lumberjack.[1]

Sasquatch in State of JeffersonEdit

Sasquatches were a small but prominent part of the population of Jefferson. The state's second governor, Charlie "Bigfoot" Lewis, was a sasquatch, and had made much of economic prosperity of the Coolidge Administration, building the Governor's Mansion in Yreka to suit sasquatches rather than little people.[2] However, after Lewis left office, it wasn't until the 1970s that Jefferson elected another sasquatch governor, Bill Williamson.[3]
