Harris, who has investigated dozens of sightings and strange phenomena in her chapter, believes there is at least a family and possibly a whole colony of the creatures living in the mountains north of Fruitland.

M eet the Navajo Buffy.

She’s not a pretty cheerleader, she’s a pretty middle-aged mom. And she’s not a vampire slayer, exactly … she’s more of a live-and-let-live type.

But if you live on the northern edge of the rez, and there’s something strange in the neighborhood, who you gonna call? Brenda Harris.

Since finding an 18-inch long footprint in her yard in Upper Fruitland, Harris has investigated dozens of complaints from neighbors about strange livestock killings, hairy upright beings looking in windows, and odd giant footprints.

She has photographs and even hair and blood samples.

Her conclusion: Bigfoot is alive and well. In fact, there are almost certainly more than one of them living in the mountains north of the San Juan River, including some youngsters.

And that’s not at all. There is something else out there.

According to Harris, a recent spate of sheep and goat killings in Upper Fruitland reveal a killer that punctures a tidy hole in the neck and sucks the blood, then neatly slices open the abdomen along one side.

Harris’s obsession with monster tracking began in August 2008. Her son and nephew were up late, sitting out in the yard laughing and chatting.

“About 1 a.m. they came running in saying, ‘We found something,'” Harris recalled.

She went out with them and was astonished to see a quasi-human-looking footprint 18 inches long and four inches wide. There were two of them, a left and a right, four feet apart.

“I thought, ‘Anything with that wide a stance is really big,'” Harris said.

She shooed her family in for the night, but not before taking measurements and photos.

About a week went by before the next encounter. Harris’s sister came by at about 10:30 p.m.

“I could hear the dogs going nuts, but not in the usual way when someone comes over,” Harris recalled. “You can tell when something is really disturbing your dogs.”

Harris and her sister went out to investigate.

“We could hear something … heavy steps coming toward us,” Harris said. “I said, ‘Let’s climb over the fence.'”

They heard the steps again, and then they saw a shape rise out of the gloom.

“Huge,” said Harris. “Very, very hairy … long dark hair and no neck. Kind of a pointy head. The chest was really wide, very muscular. It dropped down on all fours and started running that way. It was surprisingly fast.”

Harris noticed the weeds, which grew almost above her 5-foot-2-inch frame, hit the creature at the waist. She estimated it was about 12 feet tall.

Telling the story to her neighbors, Harris found they had all seen the creature, but didn’t want to talk about it.

“Among the Native people, we’re told not to talk about things like that,” she said. “You just leave it alone. But I was worried about my animals and my kids. I felt like we should be talking about it as a community.”

Leonard Dan, our Dine’ guide told me, there where only two possibilities left, it was either a black bear or our large hairy biped. He then knocked the bear off the list saying that the black bear populations in the area are 200-300 pound in weight on average and the largest he has known to have been reported in his 69 years of growing up in the area was about 500 pounds.

Report from Steve Kulls:
We encountered several different witnesses. One of the more compelling reports came from “MJ” who stated her Grandmother in the 90’s had a habituation in the Dulce, New Mexico area. The Grandmother would allegedly feed the creature by placing food in a refrigerator which was kept outside her domicile. Contrary to the Navajo belief, the grandmother was Jicarilla Apache, and thought an encounter with a creature to be good luck rather than bad.

The Grandmother, unfortunately passed several years ago and neither the house nor the refrigerator is available for inspection. There has been no additional activity in this general area, recently. “MJ” also told us of her own encounter in which she, along with a male companion, observed a black, hairy, biped with a large cow under it’s arm! It turned and glanced at them briefly and stepped over a 5 foot fence! The interesting fact is “MJ” remembers more of the cow’s description than that of the creature, as it all totally shocked her!

Also, I am currently investigating a plane crash which occurred near here in the Chuska Mountains, in 1995 in which official reports stated the bodies from the plane had been removed from the craft and laid neatly next to each other under the fuselage, buried in pine needles prior to any human intervention in locating the crash. As of this writing, I currently have the National Transportation Safety Board Accident Report and several media articles covering the crash. The link to the NTSB report is: http://www.ntsb.gov/ntsb/GenPDF.asp?id=FTW95FA349&rpt=fa I will be compiling more of this report as time allows and will share my findings with you through this site.
