Native American legends are rich in Bigfoot content. There can’t be any creature walking this Earth that the Native Americans hadn’t encountered at least once in a while . Think about it , these people lived as one with the Earth 24/7 365 days a year .

  1. I’m Mohawk of Brantford 6 Nations.

    Bigfoot/Sasquatch, has already been proven.

    Zoobank.org
    Homo Sapiens Cognatus.
    Melba Ketchum Genome Project.

    We live on a flat stationary plane with a firmament above. Consistent with Ancient Hebrew Cosmology. It’s a closed system. “Outer Space” is water. I’m a Native American and I’m telling you the Bible is true.
    Big bang = Let there be light
    A rotating globe and evolution is pseudo science. Dinosaurs didn’t exist! The earth isn’t million or billions of years old. This is a lie to discredit the Bible. Mountainous plateaus like Devils Tower is a Giant petrified tree stump. Silicone based lifeform.
    Some mountains are Giants/Nephilim and various other Giant Creatures that were killed and fossilized in the great Flood.
    Geology is really Geo-Biology. Rock is bone, organ and iron is blood.

    I’ve seen the ocean of heaven seemingly suspended in the sky above with my own two eyes. Consistent with Ancient Hebrew Cosmology as I said. “Outer Space” is water. The stars were moving in different directions at different speeds as if alive or piloted like ships. Thousands of “U.f.o’s”. I watched this for hours. Canada Day. Victoria British Columbia. Canada. Beacon Hill. 3am. Under a full moon.
    Astronots pretend to go to space. It’s all done in studios and outdoor movie productions. Moon is Area 51.
    Mars is Devon island in Northern Canada. “Star People” are Angels.
    I believe Sasquatch is a Decendant of Esau from the Bible.

    I’ve also seen the flower of life all over my walls, ceiling and floor in my apartment. Why would I see the flower of life all over a man made construct? Because we are the Sims!

    Physicists say they found computer code embedded in the equations we use to describe the cosmos. Suggesting we more than likely live in a computer simulation.

    Atoms behave differently when being observed (Double Slit Experiment)

    Atoms are 99.99 % empty space. Therefore physical matter doesn’t actually exist on a subatomic level.

    My theory/hypothesis based on everything above…

    We live on a flat stationary plane with a firmament above within a virtual reality. Atoms are are projecting 3D images in a 4D realm.
    Our bodies are Avatars.

    Yeshua is Gods Avatar!

    “The great peace keeper”…”Bringer of peace” of Native Oral History.
