Where might Bigfoot have a place in our lore, or in the sagas? Stories of them are all over the world but i've never heard of any from our people. What do you think about the existance of bigfoot? Are they perhaps Trolls or Landvættir, or something else?

Thanks,

Up here in Canada we call them sasquatch, hairy giants of the woods. They are known for their powers of glamour/ hypnotism which they use to stay hidden. I think of them as jotnar or a form of troll for though their purported height is seven to nine feet, ive heard tell of such beings that exceeded 15 feet.

Trolls are as good an explanation as any, the Strohbär and Basajaun from europe might also be worth looking into since the mythology surounding them bares some similarity and there's also the Am Fear Liath Mòr from the brittish isles and the Leshy from the slavic folklore though my knowledge about the slavic side of things are a bit scetchy

Finally the Wudewasa might also be woth looking into
