In August, 1979, the Yeti Lama sailed aboard the Heiwa Maru to Eureka, Jefferson in the U.S. in to meet briefly with the state governor, Bill Williamson, a sasquatch. The Yeti Lama selected Jefferson because of its history of openness and good relations between big people and little people. The final photo op went quite well. Governor Williamson was careful to demonstrate how inclusive Jefferson was, bringing himself, his publicist, Barbara Rasmussen, the Yeti Lama, his retinue, and the Japanese crew of the Heiwa Maru all together for the photo op.
The Yeti Lama is a loose analog of Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, who is of course a human.
