Video: Sasquatch ‘sighting’ in Harrison Memorial Hall

The elusive Sasquatch shows up to take part in First Nation circle dance



Sasquatch Days in Harrison Hot Springs was a huge success on the weekend, filling the beach with activities related to the Sasquatch’s history and folklore.

Harrison Memorial Hall’s stage featured stories, songs and dancing from members of the Sts’ailes First Nation. On Sunday, members of the audience joined hands for the Circle Dance. During the dance, the elusive Sasquatch made an appearance and also joined in for a brief moment.

Events were planned throughout the weekend to give a glimpse into the history and culture surrounding the Sasquatch.

Darren Charlie of the Sts’ailes First Nation demonstrated his drum making skills in a booth at the plaza. Charlie makes about 3,000 drums every year, and spends much of that time showing youth the craft while teaching them the significance of the drum to the First Nation culture.

Canoe races were also held throughout the weekend on Harrison Lake.

Of course, no Sasquatch festival would be complete without researchers on hand. Bill Miller and Tom Steenburg were there to explain their many extremely close encounters with the Sasquatch, in Harrison and other areas.

The event was sponsored by several community partners, including Sts’ailes First Nation and Tourism Harrison.
