"Red Elk" is an Inter-Tribal Native American Medicine Man. He is a self-described “half-breed” Native American from both the Black Foot and Shoshoni Nations, as well as being part Irish and French. His people have a long history of interacting with Bigfoot and in this interview he gives us some insight from his perspective.
The host of the show tells a pretty compelling story about a hunter who was approached by a Bigfoot and ended up giving the Bigfoot one of his ducks, and Red Elk responded by saying: "Bigfoot can read people like I can." So Red Elk considers Sasquatch to be of a very high intelligence much like us humans.
