Native legends are amazing vehicles to carry truths. What the Native People encountered, they incorporated into their legends to be passed down by generations to remember real events, real places, and real encounters, sometimes to teach important lesson for survival.
The Native Tlingit of Southeastern Alaska tell a legend of a creature called the Kushtaka (koosh-tah-KAH). Let's examine this very unsettling and interesting creature of legend and lore and see if perhaps they were trying to archive something they encountered.

About this time of year, many of us are having spring fever. I know have it big-time but where I live it's been in the 70s, so it will spark your desire to go out into the sunlight. Couple that with the infamous day of the year couples are obligated to show their love and devotion, and you have the most anti-horror day there is. And yet, those of us who love horror and don't celebrate Valentine's might like to retreat into a horror marathon. Here's some ideas -

The 1970s were in a decline economically, fuel shortages, inflation, with a background anxiety about the Cold War and serial killers - the new hobby of a different culture. It is no surprise the movies reflected this ongoing anxiety. In fact, many of us developed phobias from movies like "Airport" and "Jaws." These movies touted lots of well-known actors and actresses, sometimes large line-ups to impress. Add to that the new technology of "sensurround" for movies like "Earthquake" and theaters had the public hooked. Let's have a look at some of the memorable ones and the situations that created new anxieties about coping with catastrophe and the phobias that developed for the general public -

Upon occasion, I get asked to do a psychometry read on an object. Psychometry is the psychic ability to touch an object and gather information by those associated with that item.
Recently, I was given some potential Bigfoot hair to do a read. The person who gathered it from a hitch on a pickup truck at a campsite. Something had been wandering around in there and other signs left them to believe there was a Tall One in the camp area. The person carefully collected it and sent me a small portion that I would be allowed to touch and then send on for microscopic evaluation. Here are the results -

Haunted work sites aren’t just for the docents of historical museums and the renovators of vaudeville theaters. High-rise office staff, shop owners, and warehouse workers all report haunting issues. We often think of ghosts as hiding out in old hospitals and antebellum mansions, but where there are people to perceive their presence, they make themselves known.
