In search of Sasquatch (stories)

The Quatsino Museum & Archives is seeking stories of sightings for a North Island Sasquatch collection.

Dear editor,

The Quatsino Museum & Archives will be hosting a fun and informative summer display featuring the elusive Sasquatch.

With all the Sasquatch books and website information currently available, we would like to begin a Sasquatch collection specific to the North Island.

We plan to focus on the area between Sayward, Tahsis and Cape Scott, where many sightings have been reported and many oral legends shared for hundreds of years.

We are asking for stories of sightings and perhaps pictures of physical evidence which we could include in our display.

We would also enjoy displaying artwork and essays from our local children which reflect their knowledge and respect of this mysterious creature.

Please contact us at quatsino.museum@recn.ca or by mail to Quatsino Museum & Archives, W-100 Quatsino Rd., Quatsino, B.C  V0N 2V0, with questions or to send in your stories and artwork.

Thank you!

Gwen Hansen

Quatsino Archives Association
