Did the Vikings Meet Bigfoot?

It is believed Leif Erickson the Viking might have been the first European to see a Bigfoot when he landed in Newfoundland around 1000 AD, describing encounters with huge hairy men, with a horrible odor and  piercing shrieks.

L'Anse aux Meadows is a Newfoundland archaeological site found in the 1960s. This is the only known village settlement by the Vikings in this area around 1000 AD. That region was inhabited by Native people from back to 6000 BP. Native people who surely had dealt with the local Bigfoot.

Is it possible that the Vikings landed on a continent that had two tribes? One Native American and one being Bigfoot? If and upright human-like being can manage to stay well hidden from man, showing a good degree of intelligence, then when we refer to Bigfoot, are we not referring to the "other" tribe of the Americas? 


  1. ……. Great query to posit, Sha' … Did the marauding Danes (hey, Ireland's sentiments, not mine) actually encounter Bigfoot? That'd actually account for the ancient monstrous character in the 8th to 10th century tale of BeowulfGrendel … alleged to have made quick work of a number of men slumbering in a drinking hall.

  2. "I think Bigfoot is blurry, that's the problem. It's not the photographer's fault. Bigfoot is blurry, and that's extra scary to me. There's a large, out-of-focus monster roaming the countryside. Run, he's fuzzy, get out of here."

  3. It's very possible. The Bigfoot was in the Americas before the red man and in more numbers back then. Indians traded with them in ancient times and it would not surprise me if it were they who caused the vikings to leave

  4. It is very possible. Afterall, the Bigfoot were in the Americas long before the red man. Indians traded with them in ancient times and it would not surprise me if it were the Bigfoot that caused the vikings to leave
