Hi, my name is Michael H. and I stand for Sasquatch.
I do believe that there is a species commonly known as Sasquatch. I have no definite proof (yet), but why would it not exist? Because we humans haven’t captured or killed one? Bah, is all I have to say to that. I feel they are much smarter than humans give them credit for. I feel they don’t want to be “found”, why would they? Probably have people trying to convert them or folks probing and poking them to see what they are all about. If they have been a part of the Native Cultures in various places around the globe for thousands of years….that’s good enough for me. I have lived in the Southwest for WAY too long but am going to be an Oregonian soon and hope for the pleasure of catching a glimpse before I leave this world. This photo was taken in Toutle, WA 2 years ago, made of the ash from Mt. Saint Helens. Thanks for the opportunity to share my views.
I am Henry M. I am a member of Oregon Bigfoot and I stand for Sasquatch.
I have seen Sasquatch on two occasions, once in Georgia and once in Mississippi. I have a lifelong interest in the subject, 35 years to be exact (I am 41), and have quite a collection of memorabilia related to the subject. I hope to see conservation applied to the Sasquatch, because I have a feeling there will be a discovery soon with the Erickson Project and the Melba Ketchum findings, but I hope it does not mean the end of the species.

I have severe worries concerning the upcoming time of knowing. I’m am so afraid that it will open a war on these elusive and beautiful people. Countering this will be those will want to close off all access to all of the rural places in order to “protect” them… when, actually, all they really want is to close off access and stop the activity there with Sas being but an excuse. These primal people don’t NEED any protection other than equal rights under the law so it becomes illegal in ALL jurisdictions to kill one of them. And… they need us to protect the earth herself. For the first time, we have the ability to destroy the world without firing a shot… Major predator species are being destroyed and removed at alarming rates. This will destroy the balance in nature and the effects will be catastrophic. It is NOT North America that is causing this, but other nations, especially those in the far east. Times are precarious and as my Teacher says… “Get close to your Creator and stay there!”
My Name is Bill Hodgson. I am a member of the Oregon Bigfoot community.
I want Autumn to leave my full last name. I don’t care who knows that I stand for Sasquatch. I have had many encounters and been up close and personal with a juvenile just last fall (2010). Nobody can tell me that what I saw was anything other than what it was, period.
They are here and I am proud to share this planet with them. I will do whatever is needed of me to be sure they are protected and respected…
You have to be right in the heart and soul to receive the gift of knowing your brothers and sisters of the woods.
We are Candy M. and Phyllis M. and we stand For Sasquatch.
We are from Manitoba, Canad,a and are are avid bigfoot enthusiasts… Lovers of all wildlife and nature! We spend our summers together on road trips, camping, hiking and enjoying the great outdoors and everything this beautiful country has to offer.
The Sasquatch people represent everything that is wild and natural, true natives of this land, and we stand for all these forest people.
We don’t need proof they exist. We know they do - seeing is believing!
While we are curious to know what Bigfoot is, we understand that with curiosity comes responsibility and accountability. Regardless of what the nature of these creatures may be, in our attempts to interact with them we pledge to conduct ourselves in a way that is thoughtful and respectful. We respect their right to exist on this planet without interference from us and to remain unharmed, either directly or indirectly, by our actions. We respect that Sasquatch have their own lifestyle and/or culture. We will remember that each Sasquatch is an individual, not a specimen, and will treat them as such. We respect their right to initiate contact or decline our attempts at contact and any contact will be mutual. We will continue to focus our efforts on maintaining and improving the environment that we share, for their sake as well as our own.

Please avoid making any political or religious statements in your submission. Your first name and last initial only will be used to identify you, unless you’d prefer to have your full name listed.

WE’RE PLANTING TREES
Since there is no organized “Save the Sasquatch” campaign to benefit, Oregon Bigfoot will donate a dollar for every published submission to The Arbor Day Foundation.
Founded in 1972, the centennial of the first Arbor Day observance in the 19th century, The Arbor Day Foundation has grown to become the largest nonprofit membership organization dedicated to planting trees, with over one million members, supporters, and valued partners.
Each dollar donated plants a tree. The Foundation plants trees in National Forests, areas ravaged by wildfires, and deforested rain forests. Over the course of 50 years, a single tree can generate $31,250 worth of air pollution control, recycle $37,500 worth of water, and control $31,500 worth of soil erosion.
Finally, please consider joining the Arbor Day Foundation as a member. For $10, you’ll receive 10 trees to plant in your own yard and 6 months’ worth of membership, or you can donate your 10 trees to be planted elsewhere. Your membership includes discounts from 33-56% off their tree prices (which are reasonable already) and they have a gorgeous selection of flowering trees and shrubs to choose from. Every purchase helps the Arbor Day Foundation plant more trees and your yard will look stunning. How’s that for a win-win? If you do decide to sign up for membership to the Foundation, please email me and let me know!
TRIPLING OUR EFFORTS
The original 18 trees planted via our Stand for Sasquatch published submissions has tripled to 54 trees through matched donations. WHEN WE STAND TOGETHER, WE REALLY CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Match Partners Sali Sheppard-Wolford and Oregon Bigfoot member Tom Rutledge have pledged to match my donations. Now, each published submission is worth $3 donated to the Arbor Day Foundation (or 3 trees planted). If you’d like to be a Match Partner in our Stand for Sasquatch awareness campaign and make each submission count for more, please email me.
51 TREES PLANTED!
That’s an estimated $1,593,750 worth of air pollution control, $1,912,500 worth of recycled water, and $1,606,500 worth of soil erosion control over the course of the next 50 years as these trees grow.
Will our help our forest grow? Please submit your Stand for Sasquatch profile today and we’ll keep on planting!
