Deep in the Amazon rainforest, a small tribe of 35 individuals called “Tsapanawas” have been living in complete isolation from the outside world. During a hunt, the men of the tribe use arrows to kill their prey, however interestingly, they communicate with one another using whistles, and keep direction by snapping and placing branches along their route. If this tribe can communicate and hunt effectively using these methods, why couldn’t Bigfoot? Many Bigfoot eye-witnesses have reported hearing unusual whistles, tree knocks, and inaudible chatter throughout the night when their encounter takes place; some have even witnessed the creatures doing such things.
The Tsapanawas tribe was untouched and uninfluenced by our modern culture for so long, and yet they have survived and thrived for thousands of years in a small group of 35 individuals by hunting and gathering, using handmade tools, shelters, and medicines. They have survived attacks by other, more aggressive tribes by adopting a nomadic lifestyle, and until recently, have remained undetected by our modern society. They have a similar appearance to other tribes, but vary slightly in characteristics. The appearance of Bigfoot, or Sasquatch, has also been described slightly differently by witnesses, but still remains consistent in the description of the creature’s main features. Perhaps this points to the possibility of there being several different tribes of indigenous species that have adapted differently, causing variation in appearance like hair color or size. Could these small family groups have adopted a nomadic lifestyle like the Tsapanawas to avoid competition with others? Perhaps this explains why several Bigfoot encounters often take place in one area for a short period of time before dying down and resurfacing during certain times of the year. Regardless of how they remain undetected across the U.S., Bigfoots do a decent job of laying low. Skeptics argue that there simply isn’t enough space here for such a species to thrive, or that such small family groups create an unhealthy gene pool. However, the Tsapanawas tribe only consists of 35 members who still successfully breed and live in isolation. When it comes to the argument of space, consider the environment of the Tsapanawas tribe: a rainforest. Now consider the environment that the North American Bigfoot thrives in: also a rainforest. In fact, regions of the U.S. with the highest rainfall also happen to have the largest number of reported Bigfoot encounters. It seems that indigenous tribes (CLICK READ MORE)
function best in wet, humid climates and spacious forests, likely because of the abundant foliage and animals that can be found in such areas.
If one combined the square footage of the dense forests of the U.S., it would just about equal that of the Amazon rainforest. The possibility of an intelligent hominid tribe not only surviving, but thriving in the U.S. is not only possible, it’s probable. Bigfoot has been reported to use whistles, tree structures, and rainfall to remain undetected from others. Similarly, the Tsapanawas tribe has used the same methods to avoid other indigenous groups and modern society.
The similarities between this tribe and what we know as Bigfoot is incredible and should not go unnoticed by researchers. Although science may never truly know whether Bigfoot is closer to ape or human, current evidence points to humanistic behavior and intelligent thinking. In fact, in many eye-witness reports, these creatures are described to have a primitive appearance with gestures that clearly imply thoughtful decisions. These creatures may not be creatures at all...current evidence such as voice recordings reveals a complex language stretching 5 octaves, which is impossible for our own species to recreate. Their intelligence may be far superior to our own, or perhaps, just different. The Tsapanawas tribe has shown a great degree of intelligent hunting, gathering, building, and camouflaging.
The correlation between indigenous tribes like the Tsapanawas and the species we know as Bigfoot is clear: carefully planned hunting strategies, an elevated sense of direction, a complex language, a nomadic lifestyle, an isolated lifestyle and a similar climatic environment. Whatever Bigfoot is, their species is much more intelligent than science is giving them credit for.
