It’s common knowledge in the bigfoot “community” that all Native American names for that creature mean something like “cannibal giant.”
However, I am not sure this is actually true. The links below have lists of such names and not that many contain the word “cannibal.”
It’s not clear what might be meant by cannibal–does it mean they eat us humans or that they eat other bigfoot?
We can be fairly sure some of them eat humans from time to time. But do they eat their own kind?
More than a few human cultures have featured cannibalism at various times and places, for different reasons, and in different situations.
It was thought previously that chimpanzees would only eat infants or very young chimps. All such cases researchers observed involved chimps younger than three years old. However, more recently a group’s leader was killed and cannibalized by his former friends.
Orangutans and gorillas are also known to cannibalize infants.
Great apes also kill and eat monkeys from time to time. Monkeys at times eat their own young.
Some cultures eat their own relatives as part of a funeral type ritual. It would be disrespectful not to do so.
But what about bigfoot? Bones and bodies have not be found. Do they eat their own dead?
This topic has been kicked around before, but the more I think about it, the more convinced I am becoming that they do consume their own dead at least sometimes.
