Little people in the OR woods

61 posts in this topic

Oh, native american folk lore is not my forte..

But I've seen them called little people, brownies (not the word itself, but rather that tribes version of the word), Rock people, laurel people, dogwood people, and Geow-lud-mo-sis-eg is the only really specific name I've come across..

Sorry if this isn't too helpful..

Or the fabelled Singing Forrest Hyrax, as a certain member on here would call them.

Unfortunately we've mowed down all of the forests here with just a few isolated pockets of original forests left.

Also with the massive forest fires we've had over the decades, it's hard to believe anything has remained hidden in them.

That isn't to say that there might not be tales passed down through Native American groups of 'little people', as in very short people like pygmies, from hundreds of years prior.

I remember recently reading about some skeletons, I think it was skeletons (I can't remember much about the piece I read), or evidence of a very small pygmy like group of native americans somewhere in the west of the US, long dead now, but there were tales from other Native American groups in the area that said they existed.

What I'm saying, is that given the fact that pygmies in Africa are a very real people, and not long extinct skeletons of even smaller 'hobbit' like people have been found in the Pacific islands, it's not too hard to imagine that a group of pygmy Native Americans existed at some point in time.

Wow is has been exactly one year since the last post in this thread. I just re-read every post in here. Some of the accounts are very creepy to say the least. All are worth reading though. I am very thankful that you all read my account and expanded on it as apposed to belittling me which is so often the case on some site's. I am still very interested in learning more about this subject an would love to hear more accounts. I myself have had almost no luck in finding more information.

The knowledge used by medicine people comes from other medicine people who came before them and handed down their 'medicine' to chosen ones. They train for many years and the medicine formulas, songs and other rites are handwritten in ledgers which have been handed down over time. We are told that the Cherokee Medicine People travel to the rock caves to meet with the Little People and share in their secrets. Medicine people are still today an integral part of the traditional Cherokee lifestyle.

My wife swears she saw some little people while hiking in the Mount Rainer area.

Personally, I think she is half blind, and crazy. After all she thinks I'm handsome, and she married me...soooo.

I have not heard of any reports of them!

Over the past hundred years nearly every forest in my state has had at least one major fire. The fires in the early 20th century dwarfed many we have today now that we have highly trained fire crews and equipment to fight them. A fire of a hundred thousand acres would happen every few years although we have had one of the largest ever this year (about 750,000 acres). In all these fires we haven't come across any little humans or big Bigfoots.

Do you think that someone walked each of those hundreds of thousands of acres? Or perhaps just the perimeter?

You're building a good case for insanity all right.

Well evan, she's a woman of despicable I mean impeccable taste.... errr or something like that LOL

While researching the different Cherokee clans and legends, I was reminded of when I was growng up in St.Louis when a friend of mine and I used to follow this creek that was behind his house. We'd find crawdad's, salamanders, and fossils of shells. As we got older we would get braver and go farther. When we were about 12 we went farther than we ever had previously. We came upon an undeveloped area and was exploring it. I heard what I thought was someone talking. I would go to where I thought the talking was coming from and no one was there. This happened about 3 times. So being the mini skeptic I was, before we headed back home, I just looked at the creek, and said "oh that's what they mean by "babbling brook" LOL

This thread makes me want to revisit this movie again (I see that they did a remake in 2011).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don't_Be_Afraid_of_the_Dark_(1973_film)

OP I would try searching out "disembodied voices in woods" (or variation) than just little people.

You never know if a plot of land may have had an event predating recorded history that some how echoes thru space,and time?

The rational explanations in this thread sound most likely.

I think your link is busted. It was pointing to a different wiki page. You probably meant to point it at Don't be Afraid of the Dark?

The only little people I know of in the Oregon Woods are the Roloff's. They live across town from me.
