I’m pretty sure they are. I know for a fact skinwalkers are, f*****g scary to come face to face with one in the middle of the woods, speaking from my own experiences.

What about spitting on a knife and covering it in White Ash they said that’ll harm it

“Better not throw the knife they will most likely throw it at your head” - crow

(Crow said that at the camp fire)

I believe all stories of mythological creatures. Including Wendigo.

I’m not sure about the spit part, but the ash part works on skinwalkers, be it blades or bullets. Not sure about wendigo’s though.

I wouldn’t say they are ‘brothers’, but there are alot of similarities between the two.

This creature is a creation of horror fiction in the classic tale, “The Wendigo”, this woods spirit was, and is, a myth. Many legends and stories have circulated over the years about a mysterious man eating creature who was encountered by hunters and campers in shadowy forests of the nothern America’s.

I’ve heard there’s two types of wendigos, the easy to understand ones are normal people who give in to hunger and give in to cannibalism during times of starvation, like late winter. So the stories become teaching tales warning kids not to go that route. Wendigoes of this type, if found out seem to get executed by the local people.

Then there’s the stories of the supernatural entities, which might have started as the anti-cannibalism folklore and got embellished over time, but you always wonder if there’s not beings that actually do exist like that.

And then there’s the cross-over type stories where the human that turns cannibal becomes the supernatural. Unlike skinwalking I haven’t heard of people deliberately learning to switch between Wendigo and human though.

At the moment, since I believe currently in things like the Sasquatch, which seems to be intra-dimentional, I’m leaning towards this cryptid existing too.

I personally don’t think so. I think it’s one of those things where people confuse survival instinct (in this case, eating whatever - and whoever - to survive) with the supernatural. Kind of like how people in medieval Europe thought mestruation was a punishment from God.
