Klemtu - Canada, BC

Klemtu (also Kitasoo) is a native community on Swindle Island in the coastal fjords of British Columbia, Canada, located on the Klemtu Indian Reserve. It is the home of the Kitasoo tribe of Tsimshians, originally from Kitasu Bay, and the Xai'xais of Kynoch Inlet, a subgroup of the Heiltsuk people. These two tribes live together as, and are jointly governed by, the Kitasoo/Xai'xais Nation. Around 1968 Sasquatch (Bigfoot) were reportedly seen and the sightings ivestigated. Findings indicated that the villagers rarely traveled inland. In older times there was only one trail on the island, across one end of it as the people went everywhere by boat, even hunting and trapping on the beaches, and told stories of apes in the islands. A Klemtu villager reported seeing a Sasquatch on a clam beach. while others encountered Bigfoot when they hunted or fished. A crew of men from Klemtu who were building a dam on a lake above the village had seen tracks on a beach. The varying size of tracks indicated that a family of Sasquatch were present. This is the first report of a family of Sasquatch. The following 9 cruises call at Klemtu.
